Black Rock, Hardy and Doniphan CYO < / (ContiuueC from page I) Sunday morning .at the Hotel The Right Rev. Msgr. James E O'Connell, rector of St. John's Home Missions Seminary, cau- tioned tim youthful delegates to avoid being distracted by the artificial glitter of worldly at- tractions when they make a de- cision as to their life's work. Both Bishop Fletcher and the inonsignor advised the C.Y.O members to pray fervently for Divine Guidance that they may avoid mistakes in this matter. At an intervening business session, the winners of the Mon- signor Healy Essay contest were announced. Students in Cath- olic high schools in all parts of lrkansas competed, writing es- says on the subject: "Is The South Prepared to Accept Inte- gration?" The Monsignor Healy Mem- orial Trophy, first prize in the c'ontest, was won by James Har- rison of Catholic High School, Little Rock. Runners-up, each of whom received an engraved medallian, were Lenois Hampton, Gregory Laney and Essie Rene Abraham, all of St. Bartholo- mew's High School, Little Rock; James Tuohey, Jr., of Catholic High and Judy Buyers of Mount St. Mary's Academy. These awards were made dur- ing services at the Cathedral which concluded the convention Sunday azLernoon. The Right Rev. Monsignor Francis A. Allen, V.F., pastor of Holy Souls parish, made the presentations. The newly-elected officers of the Junior C.Y.O, were formally in- stalled during the service. Five panel discussions were features of the convention, At the first, conducted under the general theme "Spiritualizing Our Social Life," The Rev. James Patrick McDonnell, diocesan di- rector of Catholic youth, was the presiding officer In this session, Bill Robertson of Catholic High School read a paper on the subject. "What Is A Christian Date?" and then con- ducted a question period. Miss Carolyn Choate of Holy Angels Academy, Jonesboro, then dis- cussed the subject: "Is Drinking Becoming A Major Problem Among Teenagers?" and presid- ed over a question period. At a later session, at which The Rev. Edward L. Mooney, youth director for the Central Deanery, presided, the general theme was "Tile Value of Public- ity ih Utilizing the Press, Radio and T-V in Furthering Knowl- of a priest takes place. The Bishop feels that once a young man has visited .the Semi- nary, lie tins a nmch closer under- standing .of the priestly life. Of. ten. when he meets boys from his own home parish, alread studying for the priesthood at St. John's, he realities that if God is willing, the opportunity is .open for him too, The "Seminary Day" of the spring of 1954 Was responsible to some degree at least, for the ap- plications of twenty young men who entered St. John's last year Although the desire to study for the priesthood may have been al- ready presen in .their nfinds, the Bishop said. it is quite possible that "Seminary Day" became a fact.or which aided them in their decision. When addressing groups of stu- dents, particularly at his Confirma- tion classes, Bishop Fletcher ts emphatic anti unvaryih.g on two points: First, the ideal time for a young man to enter the seminary is im- mediatel:y after completing the eighth grade of grammar school. Second, if a young man feels-- even remotely--that he has a vo- cation to the priesthood, he should make application for entrance to the Seminary so that his vocation will be gven an opporunity tO develop.

His wife died several years ago and he gave a beautiful set of sta- tions of the Cross to St. Eliza- beth's Church in her memory.

During this session, Leslie Harter of Subiaco Academy, and Louis Moix of St. Joseph's High School, Conway, presented papers and conducted question periods. One subject discussed was "Catholic Literature versus Immoral Literature." The eonventJon program in- cluded a semi-formal dance and a coke party. The Mount St. Mary's Academy choir sang dUr- ing the opening Mass, DECREE (Contiuued 1-cam page 1) phany, the Ascension, Corpus Christi, The Sacred Heart, the Solemnity of S't.

In the final analysis, this will. prove beneficial since the multiplicity of these octaves tend- ed to detract from the common course of the annual liturgy. 8) The concentration of the es- sentials of the Divine Office, manifested in the abolition of the prayers which have hitherto pre- ceded the beginning of individual hours of the Breviary, the aboli- value to him, spiritually ,and acad- emically.

The new regulations are to go into effect on January 1 next year. The most interesting changes in the rubrics of the IVIass have to do with commemorations. The com- memorations are prayers, collects, secret prayers and posteommunion prayers said after the prayer that belongs to the Mass which is act- ually being ,celebrated. At pres- sent sometimes these prayers are assigned for various seasons of the year. Such conunemorations are abolished under the new legisla- tion. Others however, are prayers assigned to Masses which would have been said on this day were is not or the fact hat they are "outranked" by the Mass which is actually being said. Henceforth there can never be more than two .of these commemorations at any 'Iass. Altar boys and those who teacll them will be interested to learn of ale more change introduced by the new decree, One of the banes of the altar,boy's life was the neces- sity of changing the Missal from Lord, S.J.; At the Introit, Schu- bert's "Ave Maria; and "Mother At Thy Feet Is Kneeling" during the Offertory. As the bride laid her arm bouquet at the foot of the Blessed Virgin Mary's statue on the side altar, Mrs. DeClerk sang "On This Day". She was accompanied by her daughter, Mary Catherine DeClerk, organ- ist. The bride was given in mar- riage by her father, and was at- tended by her sister, Miss Tresa Walker. The groom's brother, Bernard Zosso of Pontiac, Mich- igan, served as best man. Acoly- tes were Bob and Bud Zosso, and Gerald and Harold Ungrank, twin cousins of the couple. Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride's parents, at which Father Maus was a guest. A reception was held in St. John's Parish Hall from 2 until 5 P.M. Following a wedding trip to Little Rock, Hot Springs and points south, the couple-will be at home in Pocahontas where the bridegroom has been employed Since his discharge from the United States Army, the Epistle side to the Gospel side on those occasions when the last Gospel assigned for the Mass was ,other than that from the beginning ,of the Gospel according to St. John. The old rules were quite complicated. They have been abolished in the new legislation, and henceforth the altar boy will have .to move the book for the third time only during the Mass of Palm Sunday and during the Third {.IE/tll | ,) OIN lmgmm-. ,  , |l|l Dept.
