Epistle, I no external violence can dominate, and where no [orturer can use his cruelty, the truc Christians will keep Christ holy. St. Peter emphasizes the necesity for unity of mind and slrit among Christians. Unity implies the ac- ceptance of the same standards and the pursuit, of lhe same moral aml religious ideals, so that each may find suppor and encouragement in all the others. Christianity does away with all differences and d:stinetions. Unity is the source of a:l b essmgs, and division is the source of all mis- fortunes. Itence Christians especial- ly need those virtues that fotcr unity, such as humility, mercy, char- ity, and compassion. In dealing with the enemies of the Faith Catholics must not return evil !for evil. Rather should they return good for evil. Thus they learn to control themselves and to overcome evil by good. Anger is not quenched by anger, any more than fire is by fire. Non-resistance to evil, andthe dolerminat:ion to maintain peace are not signs of weakness. If they are inspired by the teaching of the Ser- mon on the Mount they indicate the highest sort of strength. I requires much more courage to turn the other cheek thau to strike back. Christians are to keep Christ holy in their hearts. They are to be per- manently united with Him by fai[h and love. They are to make them- selves, their judgments, all their sbandards, and their whole way of life conform to Him. This union of heart with Christ is the best means of preserving m:ity of mind and pur- pose with our fellow Christians. If a man acts Eke his Master he cannot be out of touch with the Master's  brethren. Peter tit. 8-15; Gospel, Matthew v. [ Keeping Christ holy in hour hearts 20-24.

This lsays, "We, being many, are one shows how highly the Church values i bread, one body, all that partake of this Epistle nf consolation, one Bread." As members of one The preeding part of this ection Body we must be all of one mind. is concerned with their attitude to the heathen State in which they live and with individual groups in the Christian community. The part which is read today is addressed to the whole Christian community, without disLinction of groups. The Prince of the Apostles urges his readers to be of one mind, to have the same interests and stand- ards, and to be. full of mercy and hu- mi!ity in their dealings with each other. In their relations with un- believers he exhorts them to return insults with gentleness, and to do good to these that hate them. Chris- tians are called to a heritage of blessin, and they should, therefore, strew blqsings around them. St. Pe- ter sreng'hens h:s exhortation by a quotation from Psalm 33, which he understands in a spiritual sense. He who wishes to attain eternal life with God ("life") and the blessings thereof ("good days") mus restrain his tongue from evil, do only what is good, and seek after peace with all his strength. Yet Christian generosity, gracious- hess, and magnanimity do not al- ways, or even often, avail to break down the hostiliLy and suspicion of unbelievers. Indeed, Christia;s are often persecuted just because of their goodness. Knowing, however, that they are suffering persecution for their Master's sake. they will rejoice in their afflictions. They will no be afraid.of even the most terrible By keeping Christ holy in our hearts, then, we maintain that unity of spir- it among ourselves which surprises and attracts an unbelieving world. Monday, July lO.--The Holy Sev- en Brothers. Red Vestments. Les- son, Proverbs xxxi. 10-31; Gospel, Matthew xii. 46-50. Encouraged by their holy mother, the Seven Saints, children of St. Felicilas, bravely un- derwent a cruel martyrdom at Rome under the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, about the middle of the Second Cen- tury, Ancient Prophecy Fulfilled by Mass By the Very Rev. E. J. McCarthy, Superior of the Society of St. Columbus for Missions in China, With Headquarters at St. Co- lumbans, Nebraska. One of a Series on the Mass. "For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, My Name is great among the Gen!Pes and in every place there is Sacrifice and there is offered to My Name a clean oblation" (Mal. 1-11). Th!s passage is found in the writing, of the Prophet Malaehy, who lived four hundred years before the coming of ,Our Lord. The Sacrifice offered on i earth today that can possibly be said to fulfill this prophecy. It is always morning somewhere and, as we know every Catholic priest the world over tortures that unbelievers ean inflict, offers Mass each morning. When the Thb Ideal School for Your Daughter ST.

VINCE NT'S INFIR M A R Y Little Rock, Arkansas Training School for Nurses Ill I [ sun is setting over our Pacific coast, it is rising above the Indian ocean and Mass is offered in the South Seas, India, Africa or Australia. When evening falls on New Zealand, the sun comes up out of the At]anLic, and on twenty-eigh thousand altars across America as the sun moves westward, there is offered the tIoly Sacrifice of the Mass, "a clean ob- lation." 1tureen intelligence could not ask for a more complete fulfil!men, of a prophecy. The VicLim of the Sacri- fice is the very God Incarnate, Infin- ite Holiness, the Eternal Son of God who took flesh from the Immaculate Virgin Mother. It is offered under the appearance of two eminently clean substances--bread and wine-- 'Lhe pure spot]ess flour of the wheat, and the pure, natural juice of the grape which, by its own natural process of fermentation, has be- come in itself incorruptible. Perfect Sacrifice The Mass is a perfect sacrifice. We have seen in other numbers of this series the meaning and necessity of sacrifice; how man in all ages ex- pressed his knowledge of God's own- ership over his life and possessions by offer:ng to Him in a ri[ual man- ner that by which he lived---the firs fruits of his flocks and lands--and we have seen that since these sacri. rices were !nadequate, God Himself, in the Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ, came to offer His life in Sac- rifice to tim Eernal Trin:ty on be- half of man. In the sacrifices offered to God in all ages, we invariably find a vie!ira --some living thin or ome food of- fered to God. This offcrbg com- pletely placed the victim outslde of man's possession either through death or in the case of food or wine, by burning or pouring it out in token of God's supreme ownership over all things that man possessed. Thn there was the sacrificial banquet in ,hich those who offered partook of the food that had been sacrif'.ced. It expressed their hope of God's accept- ance and the desire of man to seek communion with God through par- taking of the gift that God had ac- cepted. God laid down conditions of sacrifice in the Bible and promised acceptance if these conditions were fulfilled. Fills All Condition We have all these elements in the Sacrifice of the Mass. There is a Vmtim--Jesus Christ---for as He of- fered Hmself as a Victim for man's sins on Calvary, He continues to of- fer Himself in the Sacrifice of the Mass. At the Last Supper, He gave power to the Apostles and their suc- cessors in the Church to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood and continue the Sacrifice of Calvary on earth as He continues it in heav- en. In this way, human beings can come and associate themselves with His Sacrifice and make reparation for lhe'.r sins. In the separate Consecra- tion, there is a mystical dyinga separa:ion of the Body and Blood an offering of the life of Jesus. Though He dies only once, in point of time, He continually offers Him- self for us. Then, there is Communion or union with God through the Victlm--not merely a symbol but a real union. Our Divine Lord made this possib!e by choosing food and drink for the external elements of the Sacrifice. The union of food with the human body is the closest and most comp.ete of all vital physical unions and we know from tl words of Jesus Him- self that we khare in this union at Holy Communion. "My Flesh is meat indeed," He said, "and My Blood is drink indeed .... he tha* 6'eth My Flesh and drinketh My Blood abidet h in Me andIin Him. I will raise hm un on the last day." This is His promise and as the prophecy has been fulfilled so will the promise be. Curiously Carved Stone Found in Arkansas May Be Original 13-Month Calendar (Courtesy of The New York Times) Little Rock, Ark., June 21.Scien- ,isis seem a bit loath to accept Ar- kansas as the location of the Garden of Eden, but Arkansas has fig leaves, apples and serpents, and now it has a calendm: stone which may turn out to be the Rosette stone of modern archaeology. From a mound near the Ouaehita River, erosion has uncovered a pe- culiar ingenous stone, which may :upset theorles about the origin of man. The stone was discovered by a boat builder on the banks of Lake Hamilton, formed by damming the waters of the Ouachita, near Hot Spring. It was presented to Colonel John R. Fordyee, who has accumu- lated an interesting archaeological collection from the same area. Co'.- onel Fordyce has photograp]ed it, and sent data concerning i to the museums of lhe world, in an endeavor to find out what it is. Shaped like a flattened human heart, 15 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 3 inches thick in the mid- dle, the stone bears a highly polished disk, in he center of which a small hole is etched. The disk is raised abcut 3-16 inch above a ring 1 1-8 inch in dlameter. This is divided into thirteen spaces, approximately !the same size. Upon the surface of i cach space is etched a design, evi- !dently the name for a lunar n:onth. i Dtched in relief outside the circle are a number of figures and conform- ing to the curve of the circle the five phases of the moon are carved. I Around the edge the carved figures face to the r:gh. They include the head of a whale; a large human eye, {hough from its sem it may be a cl- lge boy's pipe; a fish, an alligator, a swimming bird, a human head with a prominent Roman rose, a turtle, and a scorpion which shoots a zig-sag line across to the eye.

Cambridge, Mass.--A1 'Smith, in his address before the exercises of the Harvard alumni, cooked frequent outbursts of laugh, ter before fal?ing serious and giving assurances that "we have noihin:g to fear in this ,couvtry from a dictatorshi,." He outlined "a short program that will insure a safe rurn to democra[ic, representative, constitutional govern- ment.". This program included- the rule of the majority "at all hazards,"" close adherence to the eons'.itu.tion. and the continuance of opportunities in the United States for education, "withou.t reference to race, creed or religion."
