Evll men often malign Church of Christ as He pre- .41eted that they would. Many of . heretical sects that now hinder "t.,ae work of the true Church, were by men who were mere- of the Church. So the cause Christ has suffered because of influence. Catholic people fall to use the influence they have to help the Church, natural means. True enough, Wishing you all the joys and blessings of ,this Holy Christmas Season of 1943 I The Little Rock | Cold Storage Co. every Catholic knows that no; enemy can destroy the Church because Christ has promised that she will continue until the end of the world. In the meantime na- tural helps can assist the Church. Very often Catholic laymen are in a position to help the work of the Church by their influence. There are many Catholics who be- come outstanding in various fields of activity. Catholic athletes have many enthusiastic admirers 'especially among the young. Yet ,it is seldom that these athletes use their influence to enhance the position of the Church. Occas- ionally we hear of such influence. The late Knute Rockne tells of how his players influenced him and directed him toward the true religion. For one example of this kind, there are thousands that could be and are not. At the resent time our Catholic boys and girls are in the service of their country in numbers that are far above the proportion that Ca- tholics bear to the population of this nation. Many of these young people are in places where the Church is little known. In this country mauy service camps are situated in the South where Ca- /holies are few and often timid. These service boys and girls have a great opportunity to do some thing for the Church, by the man- ner in which they live and act. Their regular attendance at Mass and the Sacraments is to be ex- pected and it will help. The boys must remember to salute or raise their caps when they pass the churches where ChriSt dwells in the Blessed Sacrament. They must not forget to recognize the priests that they meet on the street with at least a motion toward their cap or hat.

Actually the scene is hard by a road in the Finschhafen area of New Guinea. The altar stands within 150 yards of the Japanese lines. The Australian troops were shelling the Japanese positions with mortars when this picture was taken. Shells passed back and forth through the air above.

P. Coenen of Kenya, Africa, "there is one more needy than I. This is the new mission station at Vic- toria Port, a subdivision of Nan- gina. Already two wattle and daub edifices have been erected to accommodate the 2,000 Chris- tians who flock to services. For economy's sake these buildings have no windows; air and light come through the door and the rear and two side openings." Yet there is great hope for the future of Catholicism in Victoria Port we are told. The pastor is |most zealous, the people are eag- ed and willing to learn the truth of our holy religion, but a new and permanent church must be erect- ed to care for the ever increasing 1mmbers. "It is our hope that a more permanent house of God will be erected by generous America, now, more than ever, 'Th e hope of the Mission.' " and maintain in this nation is civil freedom, it is not freedom from all moral restraint which seems to be the idea that many people have of liberty. A person who is in civil bondage can still be a saint. The democratic principles for which we are fighting do not mean that we as a nation, want licent- ious freedom. Only people, who have sound moral principles, are capable of ruling themselves. All those, who have taken the pledge of the Legion of Decency should remember that by keeping it they are behaving like real Christian soldiers, marching against the strongholds of crime and im- morality.
