While on the newer of these two roads, Mr. Tupper, a former minister of the Four Square Gospel Church, ran into difficulties. In his Bible he read tbat Jesus Christ had said: "Ex- cept you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you shall not have life in you." The unbelieving disciples called this a "hard saying" and walked a- way.

Some 1 r o guests were on hand to witness the marriage cere- mony and the Holy Mass which followed. After the Catholic marriage ritual, which stresses the words, "until death do us part," the parish priest announ- ced that a custom, centuries-old, would then bo carried out. Holy Mother Church, he said, on such a happy occasion directs that the bride and the groom of- fer thanks to Almighty God by assisting at what essentially is a repetition of the Last Supper —the Mass.

Noting the origin of the name Slxtus, Britannica says: "Five popes have taken the name of Slxtus. This name was adopted by the first pope in A. D. 116 because he was the sixth bishop of Rome." Highlights of the life of Sixtus IV are given as follows: "Sixtus IV (pope, 1471-84) was born ii? Savona, Italy, in 1414. He was head of the Franciscan order when he was made Pope.

CHURCH IS NOT OPPOSED TO NON-CATHOLIC MEN JOINING; 3 REASONS WHY CATHOLICS REFRAIN ARE DEVELOPED IN SHORT STORY (Why can't a Catholic belong to the Masons? This question provides the background for the following short story. Characters in the story are given their names by the author but the in- cident described is a true one based on the experiences of a priest working on the missions somewhere in Texas.) The day was a hot one but just as everywhere else so also in Texas, life must go on. For Suzie Miller, young, vivacious and recently ittirried. life in quiet little Vlcksburg also had to go on. There was the house to clean, groceries to be bought and a letter to be written. At the postoffice to mail a letter Suzie ran into one of her neighbors, Mary Davis. Mary was out as usual visiting about the nown to collect the daily gossip. Walking home together, Mary just had to stop for a chat with her old chum, Sally ...

One way that a. Catholic gets in bad standing in to be excommunicated. This taenia* that for some public denial of the faith the bad Catholic brings upon himself a punishment for which he is re- sponsible. By jolniing the Ma- eons and thereby choosing an anti-Catholic fraternity to tiie Church the bad Catholic becomes automatically deprived of the sacraments. Also a Catholic who joins an heretical church which was not established by Jesiin Christ, choosing it in preference to the Catholic Church of the ages, is also excommunicated. This means that none of the sacraments may be received un- til the excommunication has been lifted by the Bishop l and name penance performed to indi cate sorrow for a public denial at Our Lord to please men.

TEXAS "Whose Sins You Forgive They Are Forgiven" p JESUS CHRIST TOLD APOSTLES ON DAY OF RESURRECTION THAT WHEN THEY FORGAVE A SIN THAT THE SIN WAS REALLY FORGIVEN On the day of His Resurrection Jesus Clirist gave His Apostles, weak men of flesh and blood, the power to forgive sins. He said to them: "Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive they are forgiven them. Whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." Thus were the Apostles told that they could forgive other men's sins. Since they could also retain, tfiat is, not forgive other men's sins, it followed that they had to make a judgment of each case. This they could not do unless the Christian desiring forgiveness of his sins told them to them. Thus was Confes- sion instituted by Jesus Christ. Since the power of the Apostles to forgive sins did not die with them but continued in the Church, priests today...

just said that you could but you can't because I'm not giving you the power to forgive or decide not to forgive sins. Well, why then did I tell you that you could forgive sins? No one will ever know." CHRIST MEANT IT The Apostles would not have stayed 5 minutes with Christ if He had been so illogical as that. They knew that Christ, God in the human flesh, was not given to double-talltinig. They knew that He did not sty one thing and mean another. So when Christ told them that the sins that they would forgive would be forgiven, the Apostles believ- ed that they could forgive sins. CONFESSION INSTITUTED Thus was Confession institu- ted. The Apostles, men of flesh and blood, were commissioned by Christ to exercise a divine power that He. Christ, could commission men to exercise if He so desired. On that glorious day of His iResurrection from the tomb He made it clear that He did so desire. He told His Apostles very clearly: "Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and who...

A monument on East Texas soil to Messed Mary ev- er Virgin was a goal set on Dec- 6. 194S. Just us the nation has erected its monuments and mem- orials to Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson, so in Hughes Springs the Church of the ages desired to erect a beautiful monument to one who was of far greater importance than any na- tional hero, to one who was the purest and lioUest creature to be fashioned by the Creator. In a special way the mission church in the Hughes Springs area was to be a monument to the Moth- er of Christ. It was to be a cen- ter on East Texts soil from yrh|oh to spread devotion and love for the Queen o...
