The rever- end speaker reminded the newly- received and finally-professed of the gratuitous grace accorded them by God in the fact of their being called to religion, and of their obligation to give him in re- turn by their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, gifts similar to the gold, frankincense, and myrhh offered Him by the Wise Men. Turning to the par- ents, he assured them of their share in the reward awaiting their childrena reward in pro- poi'tion to their participation in the sacrifice of which the cere- mony was at once the occasion and the symbol.

Chicagoans To Pray For Lasting Peace Chicago. ()Chicago Catholics, at the Holy Hour to be held at Soldier Field on Septe4nber 12, will pray for "a great and last- ing peace," the Most Rev. Samuel A. Stritch, Archbishop of Chicago, declared in a statement made at a press conference here. "The first intention for which we shall pray," the Archbishop said, "is a great and lasting peace through the victory of our arms; secondly, that God may protect and watch over our soldiers and sailors and all that are engaged in our war effort; and then that God may give all of us the strength to bear correctly the hardships which the war imposes upon us and to turn these hard- ships into a great contribution to !the enduring and the widening ]of our free institutions. "The theme of the Holy Hour prayer this year is going to be Lepanto and now. In explaining this theme--in times of old, in times of great stress, Catholics gathered togethe with their Bish- ops and priests to pray to our Christian charity with which they were endowed. Both are built of feet long, and 40 feet wide and Blessed Lady. Our Blessed Sav- ior on the Cross gave her to us as our mother; and we sometimes gather together to pray to our Blessed Lady, asking her to bring our prayers to her Divine Son. "There are forces at work which are threatening not only our American institutions, but our Christian culture as well. Again the army of the United States and its Navy are fighting for the pres- ervation of human rights, the pre- servation of what is Christian in our culture. As the Christians prayed with the Pope before Le- panto, we too are going to gather together and ask our Blessed ;Lady to intercede with her Di- vine Son that we may preserve our freedoms and our Christian culture, and that everywhere in the world men may have the :fundamental liberties and enjoy human rights. "Just before the Holy Hour we are going to recite the Rosary in Soldiers' Field. This is going to be our prayer to our Blessed Lady. Then the Blessed Sacra- ment will be exposed, and our prayers will be addressed to our Blessed Savior. There is a great efficacy in public prayer which does not always obtain in private prayer." Mt.
