+" oneer' s_'+ Devotion To Sacred Heart By FATHER THOMAS KELLY (Fhird o/a /our-part series by Father Thomas Kelly, as- sistant pastor of Sacred Heart Parch in Bellevue.) WOULD like to make char the connection be- tween the Association and devotion to the Sacred Heart o[ Jesus, First it will be necessary v to say something about what de- votion to the Sacred Heart means. The Church has always held, and coltinues to hold, the de- votion d the Most Sacred Heart of Jesm in very great honor. But the:e are some who fail to give it Sis same honor. They fail to distinguish betwem the devotion itself, in its essentials and other variou, forms of piety which the Clutch recommends and promoes but does not im. pose ts of obligation. They look won it as just another extra levotien which individ- uals rray make use of or not as they please. Otheis assert that this de- votion is burdensome and of i little cr no value. These wish t to de-t.e the greater part of their me and energies to the teachirg and dissemination of Catholi t r u t h, inculcating Cathohe social doctrine, and in general 'promoting other good works t [ e y consider more necessary for car times. Far fron denying the neces- sity of thse activities, I mere- ly wish to emphasize that noth- ing can be done unless we have recourse to Him Who is the Way. the Truth and the Life. Others look upon it as a sen- timental form of piety, devoid of any solid basis in the mind. They consider more fit for women than for men of culture. Others still reeard this devo- tion as tmsuimble for foster- ing piety in the present age. Unfortunately these have lost sight of the basis and mean- ing of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Pope Plus XI wrote: "Does not this devotion, which causes an intimate knowledge of Christ Our Lord to grow in us, engend- ers in our hearts an intense love for him, and leads us to model ourselves on bim completely, does it not com- prise the sum-total of our religion and therefore the rule of perfection itself." Let us consider what is in- volved in this devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. There a r e t w o essential reasons Why the Church ac- cords the cult of supreme wor- ship to the heart of the Di- vine Redeemer. The first is based on the most important fact that Jesus Christ is God made man, and therefore His human nature, or any part of it, is entitled to the same worship and adora- tion which we give to the Per- Feature Films On Television lellingham KING-'IV OqBC) Channel 5 KVOS-T Channel 12 KIRO-TV (CBS) Channel 7 Taooma Seattle KTNT.TV (CBS) Channel 11 KOM0-W (ABC) Channel 4 KTVW-TV Channel 13 MOI"10N PICTURE CLASSIFICATION BY NATIONAL LEGION OF DECENCY: A-I--Morally Unobjectionable for General latre+aage; A-II--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults and Adol,scents; A-III--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults: A-IV--Mo'ally Unobjectionable for Adults, with reservations; B--Moraly Objectionable in Part for All; C---Condemned; NR--No "ating Available.

Second, The heart of Christ, more than any other member of his body, is the nntural sign and symbol of His im- mense love towards men. The mystery of our redemp- tion is in the first place and of its very nature a mystery of love and obedience with which He offered His sacrifice of the cross making infinite satisfaction for the sins of the human race. It is the mystery too of the merciful love of the Blessed Trinity and of the divine Re- deemer, for all men. When the human race was powerless to atone for its sins, Christ, by the shedding of His blood renewed and perfected the pact of friend- ship between God and man. Out of His supreme love for us, Christ made due pay- ment of man's debts. St. T h o m a s Aquinas says that Christ's sacrifice of him- self for us was a greater act of love than if he had forgiven man's sins without any satis- faction. It is never easy for us to contemplate the infinite, omni- potent maiesty of God. When we consider the eternal nature and the power of God, He may indeed seem very remote from us; a God more worthy of our fear than our love. But God has made it easy for us. In Christ, God is showing Himself to us. Growth in the knowledge of Christ is growth in the knowledge of God, which He is. In Christ, God is seen not simply in His own nature, infinitely glorious but- remote from our experience, bttt in our own nature, finitely glor- ious and thronging with exper- iermes which we have shored. We can see Christ's de- sires, joys, sorrows, fear and anger, as revealed by His looks, His words, His ges- tures. As in us, His emotions reflected, and in turn affect- ed, the beating of His most holy heart. The heart is the symbol of love. We look upon the Heart of Christ as the chief expres- sion and symbol of His love for His eternal Father and for ell mankind. Not only that D i v i n e love which He has ia common with the Father and the Holy Spirit, but also His human feelings, since He enjoyed in the fullest measure the power of human feeling and perception even to a higher degree than the rest of us. His emotions were real. He loved St. John, He wept over Jerusalem and over Lezarus, He stormed at the Pharisees. This devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is then, in essence, simply devotion to the divine and human love of the Word Incarnate, and also the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit for sinful men. As Pope Plus XII said: "It is devotion to God's love for us expressed through Jesus, and at the same time an exercise of our love for God and for our neighbor; in other words, this devotion is directed towards God's love for us, as the objeet of our adoration, gratitude and imitation." St. Paul expressed this another way in his letter to the Ephesians: "That Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts; that being rooted and founded in love, you may be able to comprehend with all the selnts, what is the breadth and length and heighth and depth; to know also the love of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge, that you may be filled with the fullness of God." With this devotion as the prime root and cause of the Total Abstinence Association of the Sacred Heart, the Pioneers, by their pl'ayers and sacrifices, undertake to honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to win grace for others.

Enters Violent Phase By JOHN J. KANE, Ph.D. Professor of Sociology, University of Notre Dame Our pastor says that steady teen-age dating is a mortal sin /or By REV. MR. PATRICK CAMPBELL St. Thomas Seminary. Kenmore (The following is a common. tary on the Third Sunday of Lent. The series is weekly pre- pared by deacons of the arch. diocesan major seminary.) ECAUSE the Lenten Masses are so ancient, they are often very uni- fied in their tone and theme and so it would be profitable to examine a Mass like this Sun- day's for the prayer themes it offers us for today and the rest of this third week of Lent 1965. We are almost at the mid- point of Le,t and now our struggle against Satan is en- tering a more violent phase. Through its liturgical actions, the Church leads its eateehu- meus (those preparing for Baptism on Easter) into bat- tle against the Prince of this world. Today in the ancient Church the first "scrutiny" took place. (These were assemblies of the entire Church of an area dur- ing which the converts were in- structed and took part in cere- monies of purification and pro- gressive initiation into Christi- anity.) These texts also, of course, instruct full-fledged Christians, too. Over and over they empha- size unceasing struggle against the lures of the Devil. In the Entrance Song we use Psalm 24, as we have so often this Lent, to guide our prayer. It turns our eyes toward God, our only Defender against the dangers which threaten our Christian life. In the Epistle St. Paul re- minds us that we are no longer in the darkness of the portant one for us in our strug- gle against evil. Even though expelled the devil will not quit the battle but strike again from another angle. So our commitment to Christ must be a total thing. The battle we are fighting is one where no quarter is given or asked. Nothing less than total defeat of the Adversary is enough. In the Song of Offering we thank the Lord for having given us His law and sing of our joy , at having heard the Word of God for only it gives meaning to our lives. In our song as we go to re- world without God hut we are walking in the light of Christ. We should follow His example and wipe every trace of sin from our life. In our response to the Epistle we beg God to use His might in us to overcome Satan. In the tract we remind ourselves that we can confidently expect God's help in our warfare for He has given us all that we have. The Gospel lesson is an ira- ceive the Lord, we sing of our joy at being allowed to ap- proach the altar of the Lord where we find nourishment and a rampart in our struggle against the demon. And with this prayer on our lips we go forth to spread the joy of Christ living within us throughout the next week: "0 Lord, you invited us to take part in this great mys- tery. Deliver us, your chil- dren, from every sin and peril. Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen." Nation May Yet Sigh of Relief By George N. Kramer PhD After weeks engaged in preparing a bipartisan vot- ing rights bill, the present prospect is that such a measure will be passed before another week passes. Quick approval is expected when the bill comes to the floors of the House and the Senate. All that seems to remain now is agreement on some minor legal phrasing. Some Senators from a num- ber of Southern States have threatened to stage a filibus- ter, but from the appearance of the situation, this will not materialize. The voting rights legislation is expected to remove once and for all the barriers to Negro voting in the Southern States without doing violence to our constitutional system. But whether it will allay the bitterness a n d recriminations engendered by many months of conflict still remains to be seen. President Johnson's speech before both houses of Con- gress assembled M o n d a y night has had its expected ef- fect, and probably they will quickly approve his request that his proposal be immedi- ately written into law. The nation may well indulge in a sigh of relief if at long last the troublesome problem is solved. Cyprus Trouble Tension in the Mediterranean has also risen with the reported sailing of a 33-ship Turkish task force from the pert of Ismir. In addition, troop movements in Greece have been reported. Ever since the UN peace- keeping forces arrived in Cy- prus almost a year ago, the island has experienced an un- easy truee with no settlement of the conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriotes in sight. Sporadic fighting broke out again between the two factions this past week and the situation is described as "pretty grim." It is said to be the most serious since last August. The UN Security Council Tues- day considered extending the stay of the UN peace-keeping forces for another three months. It will probably make another generous contribution. Making Unrighteous Mammon Righteous By MOST REV. FULTON J. SHEEN ONEY, as Our Lord spoke about it in the Scriptures, is sometimes translated as "the Mammon of Iniquity." If one did not know Our Lord's life well, and was told to guess what He had said about money, the guesses would range from: "He called it filthy lucre', .... He said 'Don't touch it', .... It will damn you," "Give it up" or "There will be no peace until the power of money is destroyed." But He actually said none of these things. He told a parable about an unjust manager who used his money to do good. While the Lord con- demned his chicanery, He praised him for using money to "make friends and influence people." There is a world of difference between giving money the place of a god (which is what Mam- mon means) and using its godlike powers to clean up our dirty past. It is good to own money; it is bad to be owned by it. In the parable, the unjust trustee had only a short time left to con- tinue managing the estate. So he let the money fly. He gave it to those in debt; he turned his dollars into works of mercy to make "good con- tacts" when he no longer had a job. e Our Lord applied the parable by saying, "Now, My advice to you is to use money, tainted as it is, to make yourselves friends, so that when your life comes to an end, they may receive you into eternal habitations." In our modern language this means: "Do not give your money to the rich who put it into their pile. Give it to the homeless, the lepers, the poor missionaries, the slum dwellers, the refugees, the orphans. By doing this, you will make them your advocates, your intercessors on the Day of Judgment. Do not think we go solitary and alone to God for judgment. We bring with us someone we have pulled from 4he gates of hell, or the hungry in Latin America, the starving in India, the leprous in Africa." Then the Lord will say to you, "You have made your unrighteous Mammon righteous because you saw Me in the bungry and the naked. Enter into My joy." Why not put some of those stocks you have in vaults to work NOW? If you need the in- come, the Holy Father's Seeiety for the Propa- gation of the Faith will pay it to you during life without any deduction for service--and at death your money goes to the Holy Father to be distributed by him to the poor of the world.

Because I was a teen-age bride, so was my sister. My. five brothers married in their teens. My grandmother and great- grandmother married in their teens. Perhaps I iust don't believe what the priest says but I do want to be a good mother. OU have misunderstood ust what your pastor said. No one can say that steady teen-age dating, and incktental dating is not going steady, is a mortal sin for parents who allow it. What he probably said was that going steady in the early teens may lead to a serious occasion for sin. Parents should keep their children from occasions for sin. He is certainly right about that. If you doubt him, check into the number of pre- marital pregnancies in your city. The reason for "going steady," courtship er whatever term you want to use to describe going exclusively with a per- sen of the opposite sex is to determine whether or not the boy and girl wish to marry. Therefore, persons should keep earn. pany of this type only where there is a reasonable possihility of marriage in the very near future. The problem of the 13, 14, 15-year-old who is going steady is that marriage in the near future is usually impossible, and ought to be. There is, or at least there should be, quite a distinction be- tween "going steady" and dating. Certainly a 16-year-old girt 'should date if she wishes to do so. But she should be dating several boys, not one. A date is supposed to be boy-girl association for the purpose of social pleasure, such as a dance, a party or a movie. .rATING serves a most useful purpose. It taches boys and I=,1 girls how to get along together, to understand the opposite sex. It helps those who have a vocation for marriage to make a sensible choice out of a reasonable number of acquaintances. Going steady from 14 to 17 and then marrying would be  like going into a store to buy a dross when there was only one dress in the store. It might seem rather good since it was all the merchandise available. But you might look better in a different color or style. It might not fit as well as other dresses but how could you know? There is no basis for comparison. I simply could not imagine any American girl or woman doing such a thing. But many do this in an area of life far more im- portant than purchasing clothes. All of us are different. We get along better with some people than with others and it is cer- tainly true that in marriage many could have made happier choices than they did. One reason for marital failure, but not the only one, is that youthful "going steady" leads to infatuation which is mistake for love. Furthermore, once a boy and girl begin "going steady," others tend to leave them alone and it becomes more diffieult for both, but especially the girl, to get to know and to date other boys. She takes herself out of the running far too early in the game. Obviously, this exclusive association early in life tends to' lead to intimacy. Marriage is a long way off. The couple be, lieves they are in love, so why delay the overt expression of love in sex? OUR pastor would probably not object to a girl's "going steady" at 18 if she and the boy were in a position to marry within a year. More girls in the US marry at 18 than at any other age. So there is a great deal of "going steady" at this period of life which culminates in marriage and hence is quite permissible. But whether marriage at 18 is:desirable is quite another question. On the individual level it may work out well. Some gifts are quite mature at this age and they tend to marry boys two or three years older. It's not the chronological age which matters. What really counts is whether a couple is prepared to accept'the very seri- ous obligations of marriage be they 18 or 80. In our society too many teen-agers are not really ready for marriage at 18. If you want to check the statistics on teen-age marriages you will find the divorce rate is quite high, in-law problems are numerous. Many regret that they never had i a chance to enjoy their youth but were saddled with too many responsibilities too soon. The fact that your great-grandmother and grandmother married in their teens is irrevelant. They lived in a completely different world. It is highly probable that one or both lived on a farm. In those days an eighth grade education was-more than sufficient for most men to make a living. It isn't today. Even high school may not be enough and incidentally, 18 percent of the 1963 high school graduates were still unemployed a year later. It is ironic that the age at marriage in this country has dropped about two or three years since 1940 just at a time when automation is eliminating the kinds of jobs most Feoph get with less than a high school diploma. You can't use the past as a criterion for the present or particularly for the Ill- tare in which our young people will live. The life span considerably shorter in your great-grandmother's day. The 18-year-old girl of today has a probable life span of about 54 years. Grandmother and great-grandmother, statistically at least, had much less." T IS difficult to prevent this too-early "going steady". The best approach is not to oppose it outright but quietly try to persuade your daughter to see other boys. Encourage her to join youth groups at church or school where she will meet other boys. Have an occasional social eve- ning at home and make certain, if you can, that a few boys are on hand. You owe it to your pastor and yourself to have a talk with: him. Find out just what he did say and more important exaetly what we meant. Present your own experiences of teen-age marriage and explain your difficulties in agreeing. In a face to face meeting he can spell this out for you bet, ter. No one is going to pretend that all teen-age marriages d in the divorce courts or enos of misery. But neither will anyone claim that their chances of success are as high as two remaa. tic teen-agers would like to believe.
