Led by the words and example of our Supreme Shepherd, we seek anew the ! lost treasure of peace---rthe Peace of Christ. This stricken world craves it, but seems blinded in its effort to find it. Only this month, on the Feast of the lmmacuqate Conception, the anniversary of the dedication of the human race to the hnmaculate Heart of Mary.

It was through, the Blessed Virgin that Our Lord, God's first Christmas Present to us, came into the world. l ; As the celebration of Christmas approaches, I am anxious for my Christmas Message to be an exhortation to you to heed the pleadings of the Vicar of the Prince of Peace. Let us reconsecrate ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Lady with full confidence that she will show the world the sure road  back to God--and to Peace. You will all have a special place in my Christmas Mass. God bless you and increase in your hearts the peace that comes to those who faithfully follow the Star oi Bethlehem.

'More Intimate Oneness' "I repeat, all this was no acci- dent. On the contrary it is of the very essence of the Clristian view of life. To us it is not empty talk to speak of the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God. Rather with St. Paul we even dare to speak of a more intimate one- ness, considering our fellow men as parts and members of one body, of which Christ is the head. We know that it is our high destiny to be called to be sons of God, and brethren in this household should indeed dwell together in peace." Bishop Ireton contrasted this Christian view of life with that of those who urge class struggle as a means of Social salvation, a philosophy, he said, that leads ulti- mately to an uneasy solution "found in the flames and blood- shed of revolution." Bishop Ireton went on to dis- cuss poverty among great num- bers of people and great wealth among others as one of the basic evils that has given rise to class struggle and that has prevented the growth of a truly Christian society.
