Sheen Union City, N. J. ()--In an article entitled "The Man Behind the Mike," appearing in the cur- rent issue of The Sign, published here, John Jay Daly tells how the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, of the Catholic University of Ameri- ca, in addition to his many activ- ities, finds time to conduct clas- ses for the instruction of converts at his home. "Among the notables who have come into the Catholic Church under his aegis," Mr. Daly writes, "are the late Heywood Broun, newspaper columnist; the late Colonel Horace Mann, who was charged with having conducted the smear campaign against A1 Smith, and Henry Ford II." Recalling that Monsignor Sheen had recently celebrated his fif- teenth anniversary on the "Ca- tholic Hour," the author writes: "Radio was made to order for this modern evangelist. They came along together. As a radio per- sonality, the name Fulton Sheen is known in the United States wherever there is a receiving set. He appeals alike to Catholic, Pro- testant, and Jew... "How can Monsignor Sheen speak once a week over a nation- wide hook-up, conduct classes at the University, appear on the lec- ture platform in various parts of [the country, write books, pamp- hlets, magazine articles, teach re- ligion .to converts in New York and Washington---and still find time for that one-hour-a-day  meditation which he advocates the day of the first Holy Mass of Rev. Maurus Gerke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Win. A. Gerke of St. Edward's Parish, on June 3. The entertainment committee for the day was: Mrs. Joe Wal- ter, Mrs. Tony Schneuttgen, Mrs. Joe Binz, Mrs. Tom Gaisbauer Mrs. Herman Hanggi, and Mrs. Gertrude Kollrus. Penny Bingo was enjoyed after the meeting. Door prizes were awarded and re- freshments served. City's Oldest Parish Marks 112th Jubilee Chicago. (E)A Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving marked the ll2th anniversary of the founding of St. Mary's Church, the first church of any denomination established in Chicago. It was in 1833, just twelve days after his ordination, that Father Irneaeus St. Cyr was sent here from St. Louis by his Bishop to take charge of a mission, and in a small building which had been donated by the Beaubein family, who operated the first hotel in Chicago, the parish was estab- lished. During its 112 years, the parish was located at different times on four sites, and at one time the church served as the Cathedral. The parisb acquired its present location after the Chicago fire of 11871, when it purchased the former Plymouth Congregational :Church. The Paulist Fathers took charge of the parish in 1903. The Roy. William West, C.S.P., is the ,present pastor. Shortly after the Paulists took over the parish the i Rev. William Finn, C.S.P., then a student, organized the first of the famous Paulist choirs. i and practices?" Mr. Daly asks. "The answer is, he does," says Mr. Daly.. "He knows how to live on twenty-four hours a day." Plumbing And Heating - REPAIR SPECIALIST ,'k GEe. M. WOODS Call '$-334 Little Reek Catholic Mother Mrs. Louis B. Scheerer, of Phil- adelphia, who has been chosen the "Catholic Mother of 1945" reports the National Catholic Conference on Family Life. Her seven sons and three daughters are in religion. It is believed to be the largest family group in religion in the United States. (NCWC) Mother Of Ten In Reli00i0n Gets Award Cleveland. (E)--Mrs. Louis B. Scheerer, of Philadelphia, has been chosen "Catholic Mother of 1945," it was announced here today by Mary L. Callahan, President of the National Catholic Conference on Family Life. Announcement of the annual selection of a Cath- olic Mother is made each year on this date, the Feast of St. Monica. Outstanding in the life of Mrs. Scheerer is the fact that her ten children are all m religious life. :Five of her sons are members of the Carmelite Order and two are Dominicas. Her three daughters are Dominican nuns. Even though Mrs. Scheerer's life has been largely taken up with the rearing of her ten children, she has still found time to take an ac- tive interest in parish and civic affairs. Pointing out that oppor- tunity for extra-domestic activ- ities increased as the children grew up, Mrs. Scheerer said'in a recent interview: "It is really in speaking of our family, of found-- ing a home, rearing and giving in religion our entire family of ten men and women that I feel I have told the whole story of the work of our livesMr. Scheerer's and mine." Born Gertrude Beisel, at Potts- town, Pa., on February 9, 1884, Mrs. Scheerer was married in Philadelphia on June 5, 1905. The Roy. Louis Scheerer, O.P., has just returned to the United States from China, where he ser- ved as a missionary for some A brother, Father Hya- cinthe, O.P., has remained in China, where he is presently serv- ing as an air base chaplain.

Carmel, Order of Discalced Car- melities, Washington, D. C.

She is as vigorous as ever and she rejoices over the arrival of the Americans. "At last we can breathe freely again," she said. She told me the story of how on the day preceding the American occupation of her village, she nar- rowly escaped from Nazi shells. The American commander had been informed of her presence in his zone of operations and up un- til April 20 the village had not been bombed or shelled. Nazis Shell Own Village However, SS troops have long resented the interest of Catholics the world over in the stigmatized woman, and upon the approach of the Americans they laid down a heavy artillery barrage on the village, causing the destruction of one third of its buildings and the death of three persons. Therese herself was menaced by a machine gun post SS troops had established below the very win- dow of her dwelling. Upon learn- ing of her danger, she sought pro- tection in a shelter near the par- ish house, together with Father Naber and several children who are members of her family. The shelter was hit by a heavy shell, causing a huge underground fire, and they escaped only with the greatest difficulties. Various relics and valuable church ves- sels were destroyed. All the townsfolks to whom I have talked agree that the shells came from German positions. As a matter of fact, SS troops were seen carrying large quantities of ammunition to their strongholds. Relates Visions Of St. Therese When American forces entered the village, they immediately post- ed "off linfits" signs at Therese's home and Father Naber's resi- dence. On April 29, about a week after the Americans entered the village, "Resl" had a vision of St. Therese o" Lisieux, I was inform- ed. The Little Flower has ap- pearqd to her thrice, namely, on the Saint's beatification day, on her canomzation dgy and on her feast day. " Father Naber tQok down the words which "Res'l" spoke in re- peating what the Little Flower said: "Be calm, be confident, for clearly you have been given won- derful help and a diabolic plan has been counteracted by Divine Power. You have had a premoni- tion and seen how terrible the danger was, but the Lord accepted your sacrifice, which was not in vain." Daily Communion Only Sustenance "Resl" continues to abstain from all food and drink. For seven years now, according to Father Naber, daily Holy Communion has been her cnly sustenance. She still goes through intense sufferings on solemn feast days, reliving the passion of Our Lord, experiencing dramatically in her visions the story of the Passion.
