CATECHISM. The Church (Continued). When does the,Pope speak ex ca- thedra ? He speaks ex cathedra when, as head of the Church, he defines thflt a doctrine of faith or morals is to be held by the universal Church. What is a Christian's duty with re- spect to the truths taught by the Church?,  He must accept them without-re- serve; h must believe them and love them. Is the Pope also impeccable? No; .it is possible for the Pope to commit sin. How may the true Church bc known? It may be known by the distinctive marks which Christ has given it. Which are these marks? The true Church is one, holy, catho- lic, and apostolic. Why is the true Church one? Becausa all its members; (1) Pro- fess the same faith; (2) Receive the same commandments of God /nd of the Church, and partake of the same sacraments; (3) Obey the 'same su- preme head, the Pope.

I iti0P ana,,;:; THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1920. BIBLE STORY. Moses Is Born. After the death of Joseph ,the He- brews, who were the descendants of Jacob, increased so very fast that che king of Egypt was afraid they would become too powerful. To prevent this he ordered that they should do all the hard work in the country, and ,as that might not be enouffn, he commanded that every baby boy should be drowned as soon as he was born. About this time a lIebrcw woman had a little boy, whom she loved dearly. She wishdd to save her baby and so :for three months she hid him. When she could hide him no longer . . she made a basket of rushes, which she daubed over with slhne pitch, so that the water could no enter, and with her heart ahnost breaking, she put her baby in it, and laid it in the high grass along the river's side. The baby's sister, whose na]ne was Mary, hid near by to watch. Shortly after, the king's dau'ghter came down to bathe, and seeing tbe basket, sent her servant for it. The princess opened it and saw a pretty little boy, and her heart was filled wit pity for this poor mothem She made up her mind to save the child and bring him up as her son. The baby's sister now ran up to her, and asked if shb should find a nurse for him; being told to do so she brought his mother. The babe v:as named  Moses, which means, saved from the water. AN ACT OF CONTRITION. 0 my God! I am heartily sorry for my sins. I detest them because they offend Thee, who art so good; and I firmly purpose, by Thy holy grace, never again to commit sin. AN ACr OF FAITH. \\; O, my God! I firmly believe all the sacred truths which Thy Catholic Church believes and teaches; be- cause Thou hast revealed them, who canst neither deceive nor be de- ceivgd" ' X COURAGE. Part II. (Continued from last Week.) The two Sullivans were silent for a moment. "Georgia, you are right. Though we might have fun, it would )e mean, and a sin besides, to play :his trick on Old Sam. Willie, let us trop our plan." Willie was satisfied. And the three boys warmly shook hands with each other, to confirm their mutual riendship, which came well nigh be- ing broken up by this difficulty. Now, my dear readers, what is your opinion of George Steiner? Consider I the circumstances in which the boy I was placed, and you will agree withJ me when I say that George,'in the iiY stance related,r showed a beautifuL! manly courage. No boy was fender than ]e of ticks and fun; here was a fine occasion for both. Wasn't it a strong temptation for him to join his companions in Maying the trick ,though he knew that by doing so he was doing wrong and committing sin? Mdreover, he could foresee that by resisting the wishes of' lvis two comrades he might provoke them and break up the friend- ship that had so long subsisted be- tween them, another temptation to yield to the wrong.. Ite wa" sneered at and called a coward; pride aud human respect were for him another great temptation; like so many others he might have been led by them to do evil. Here was a three-fold temp- tation; George overcame it bravely, and by his manly courage gained o}er his two companions for the right. oaI am writing this, I Just today, a read the life saint who showed such courage that the whole world dmires her for it: St. Agnes. She stood undaunted before the prefect, and rejected all his kind and most tempting offers. She wa. exposed to the eyes of the whole city of Rome, and God protected her innocence by an astounding miracle. When the ex- ecutioner raised his sword to Dehead her, he trembled, and St. Agnes said: "What are you afraid of? I am not afraid!" What admirable courage in a child of thirteen! On the day before the feast of St. Agnes, we celebrate the festival of example of true Christian courage. He renounced all the honors of rank and position to keep to his faith; and being shot witb arrows, was left for dead. Having, however, recovered, he again placed himself before the cruel emperor, to plead for the right, for which he was again ed away to be hipped to death, thus suffering a two-fold lnartyrdom. Such, my read- ers, are the examples for your imita- tion-examples of Christian courage, In vain, however, are aH these words, if parents will not do their part to lay into tthe hearts of t]}eir children, the one principle of this courage--the fear of God. Shall I tell you howthe parents of George Steiner did this? May you strive to do the same with your children, dear Christian father and mother! George's mother, almost from his very infancy, impressed on the mind of her son the idea of God's knowing] TI... PI ..... /l and seeing all things. If he said t I {Y jFII{/ so,nething improper, or did something [ ,fthe S9 wrong, may it have been ever so /th slight, she always - asked him: /  ' "George, who heard that? Who saw/ LOUISIANA. ,,  New Orleans that. She often spoke to lHm of the  presence of his Guardian Angel.

George ever looked }new Demg entertameo. oouz one up to his parents with the greatest! hundred and fifty beneficiaries halve respect; for he saw in them models of every virtue. He never nqticed them committing the same faults for which they had to correct him. By thus 1)lanting into lis heart the fear of God, and nourishing an early sense of shame, they grounded in him that manly courage which we have just heard of, and which we must traly admire--of all and at all times doing what is right and resisting the wrong. Their own lives were regulated by this same principle so early laid into the heart of their son, and which, as been at the.home since July 1. 3avier University has started a campaign for a $3,000 library fund and laboratory equipment.

"Catholics of tle United States, for the most part, are not aware of the fact%hat Japan has 75,000 people of kindred faith," says Rev. Mark Mac- Neal, S. J., of Japan, who visited the K. of C. convention in New York re- cently. "Japanese Catholics," he continued, "are well organized, having an Arch- bishop at the head of the Church there, several Bishops and a number of schools for boys and girls." The Catholic University has 135 students, eight Jesuit p.ofessors, and twenty native instructors. The Government has recently passed a law favoring private uni- versities of this type and has granted them the privilege of conferring de- grees.
