It is some- thing that is a living part of it." Susan Lamb, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lamb, was chosen to crown the statue will help the Pope to finish the work he began in the great council last October. We know God and Our Blessed Mother will do what is best for us, But in our hearts we feel that we need our present Pope to remain with us to show us how to live the challenge to use every chance to form and keep right iddas for ourselves and others. : Completely Devoted MONSIGNOR DOOGAN Our Lady. Her court con- of Mary Dorian, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clif- ford J. Dorian; Pamela Short, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Short; Lynn Hender- r n, the daughter of Mr. and s. McEwan Henderson, and en Pompeo, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Pompeo. All the girls are eighth graders at Our Lady of Lourdes School. The crown bearer was Joseph Baird, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Laurence Baird. Joseph is a st grader at Our Lady of urdes. "- The Rev. Jordan Donovan, O.F.M., pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes, was the celebrant of Benediction which followed the crowning. The procession consisted of uniformed parochial s c h o o 1 children carrying school ban- erS: Sisters, major and minor mmarlans, altar boys, Boy outs and First Communi- cants. St. Edward Seminary Choir led the singing and mem- bers of the Archdiocesan Coun- cil of Catholic Women were hostesses and provided flowers for the altar. The following is the complete text of Monsignor Doogan's talk: "My dear boys and ,;rls, young men and women. I'm going to talk to you now about a man and a woman whom all of you know. The man is over 80 years old, but spends more time working inn you and I do. Although is a very important man, the most important thing about him is the fact that he is a priest and says Mass daily as you see your parish priests do. He fills his day with reports, letters, dictation, conferences and audiences. He has followed that busy schedule as a parish riest, army chaplain, bishop, nd papal diplomat for the early 60 years of his priest- Fooed. I'm sure you've guessed at I m talking about our oly Father, the Pope. "Since he became Pope, u and I have been finding Rut what his relatives, for- mar parishioners and co- workers have known all along. He is a man who has never run away from a chal- lenge. He has never taken an easy way out of things. He has never looked for loop- holes in the law. He has thought Of others instead of himself. Old, Tired, Sick... "Old, tired, sick as he is, he is still doing things that you I are either too lazy or scared to try. He has made you and me sit up and take notice of what it really means to be a Catholic. He has made our Church aware that it must serve, not only you and me, but the whole world in every way that it can. He has made the whole world take notice of what our UrCh can and must do for men. "Without being disrespect- ful, we could say that he is turning the Church upside down and inside out, all in order to make you and me realize that we ought to get out of our shell and accept his challenge to be eoura- e geous in-living our faith in front of our fellowmen. Be- cause of all that he has said and done since he became Pope, you are the genera- tions who will reap the bene- fit of what the Pope has done. "Every year since 1935 people have come here in honor of the Blessed Mother, to ask her help either to keep bring back true peace to world. This year we ask again for a real and firm peace which only God can give. But His Excellency, the Archbishop, has also asked all of us to pray very specially for Our Holy Father, The Pope has been seriously ill. We hope that the prayers of u young people, whom Our essed Mother loves so much, / / / To Mary "One of the secrets to the Pope's great ability to get things done is his completely childlike devotion to Mary. His parents took him as a small child to one of her shrines to honor her just as your parents brought you here today. He has spoken frequent- ly of his visits to Loretto as a seminarian and even last fall he visited there again. He speaks of Mary, in the sim- ple, loving way in which a son speaks about his Mother. Even though he is a very busy man, he always finds time for the Blessed Mother. "He is convinced, as all of us should be, that devotion to Mary is not something added to our Christian life. It is something that is a liv- ing part of it. Just as Our Lord was and is dose to her, so we must be close to her because He made her our mother as well as His own. That is why the Pope stops every day and talks to her in the recitation of the Ros- ary. If the busiest man in the world can find time to say Mary's favorite prayer, then you and I must find the time. "In the Rosary Crusade several years ago most of us promised we would honor her by the daily recitation of the Rosary as individuals or as families. If your lives are not as happy as they should be, if the lives of your parents are unhappy, one reason may be you and they don't talk enough to God's Mother. When people stop talking to Mary, they soon stop talking to God Himself. "Every joyful, sorrowful and glorious scene in Mary's life brings us the help we need to be what God wants us to be, men and women who find hap- piness in doing what God asks. We don't get that kind of strength, courage and love by wishing; we must pray for them. There's no better way to get them than to make certain God's own Mother is helping US. ... All Things In And For Jesus Christ "This has proof in the lives of men and women who are for more important than you and I are. If the world today admires the Pope for all he does, we would attribute his ability, among other things, to the daily Rosary asking the help of God's Mother. He has fears, and burdens and sor- rows like we do. But he meets them with strength and cour- age because he knows his daily Mass, prayers and Rosary have strengthened him to do all things in and for Jesus Christ. "Last Holy Thursday the Pope wrote a special letter, not just to Catholics, but to men of good will everywhere. He gave us the terms to stop wars and llve in that peace which the world itself can never give. This after- noon we have come to ask the Queen of Peace to listen to the Holy Father's prayer which he spoke in the name of the whole world: " 'Banish from the hearts of men whatever might endanger peace. Transform us into wit- nesses of truth, justice and brotherly love. Enlighten the rulers of the world so that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. Enkindle the wills of all so that the 5, may overcome the barriers that divide, cherish the bonds of mutual charity, understand others, and pardon those who have done them wrong. By virtue of divine action, may all peoples of the earth be- come as brothers, and may the most longed for peace blossom forth and reign always between them.'

The following are the win- ners' individual essays: WHERE DO PRIESTS COME FROM? By John Flower Priests come from homes like yours and mine. They come from homes where there is obedience and love of God, Their homes are just aver- age American homes where mother c a I 1 s maybe m o r e than once and s a y s, "John, have you stud- led your cate- c h i sm les- son?" JOHN Well, J o h n FLOWER is a boy like me, he is out on the baseball field and he knows that cate- chism has to be studied, so he runs quickly to the house. He also knows mother too, and this makes him run in faster. Priests come from homes where boys are good in school, obey teachers and others in authority and learn to take responsibility upon themselves. These boys are not sissies either, they play football, base- ball, basketball and most of the major sports. In school or out these boys are a good example of their Catholic Faith. If they live up to the high standards of the Church they will have many friends and will be liked by everyone. Priest.s come from homes where boys have good person- a.:ities, they live good, happy, and clean lives. They go to Mass and receive the Holy Eucharist often. These boys like people, they like to be kind to everyone. They are kind to animals, too. They are glad when they are able to serve Mass. Some Priests got their first desire to be Priests when they were altar boys. Last and most important Priests come from homes that obey God's two Great Com- mandments. First: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind and with thy whole strength. Second: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

I do not know where all nuns come from but I do know where my own sister- nun came from! Home!

Once I might she's really arrived! She's on 'have thought that to be a can- 'the Student Council, and she didate for a religious life one begins to see the Sisters as real people. In our school I'm finding myself in this posi- tion. I am be- ginning to think about things such as --"Where do Sisters c o m e from?" SUSAN W e 1 o v e OAKSMITH every one of our Sisters. What made them want to teach us instead of doing something easier? I'm old enough to see how hard it is to teach our wiggling generation. A Sister today has to be a combination of Perry Mason and Dear Abby Actually they have to be Christlike. Were they always that way? tn this modern age, we, have to be scientific, get fats and draw conclusions. So I started out for facts. Where did the Sisters in our own school come from? Most of them came from our own Archdiocese. One came from a large family, just like mine. They prayed the family rosary just as we do at home. One came from a small family. Our first grade teacher came from California. She was an only child, which goes to prove that every only child isn't selfish or helpless. You should see her manage her straggling flock. Two more Sisters came from Catholic high schools in our Archdiocese and our own teacher just had one brother, and they fought and made up just as I do with my four brothers, To be scientific again, what was alike in all their homes? They were Catholic homes, but not extraordinarily pious ones. They were average homes, just like yours and mine, where we work and pray and have fun together. When the time of decision came, our Sisters answered God generously. Th i s important crossroads will come to all of us someday. Maybe you or I will become a Sister and have to answer some other young girl who will ask us, "Where do Sisters come from?" Will we be as generous with our lives and talents as the Sisters of today have been? must go around wearing a halo with not much thought of hav- ing fun. But now I know dif- ferently. And it is my sister who has shown me how wrong my impressions were. I can remember way-back- when, when I would come home crying about some wrong done me. If my Morn was out, my sister Pat would make things right for me. She play- ed with me and showed me the way to do so many things. Pat was always the baseball champ of our block and at times would condescend to give "the boys" a few pointers. She was the middle one in our family and my brother and I found her indispensable to our hal> pness. When she started to high school Pat did not have as much time to spend at home. There were always extra-cur- ricular activities ,and she had her fair share in them. There were dates, too, both formal and informal. The form- al dances were the most fun as she let me watch her get ready and sometimes help her. Then there were the corsages to admire and the hope that someday I could be doing the same thing. As graduation neared, there was no question in anybody's mind but that Pat would go to college. In her last year in college-- I remember the day well--we were doing the dishes one evening when ]>at told me there was a letter on the table she thought I would be inter- ested in. It was her letter of acceptance from the convent. It is hard to describe my feel- ings because they were all mix- ed up. I was happy for her, but unhappy for our family. We all would miss her so much. These last few months were totally confusing. We all went for week-end trips to see our favorite places and enjoy them once more with her. Everyone entered into the spirit of pre- parations. Before we knew it, July 25 had arrived and we were taking our "contribution to God" to the novitiate. The trip home was a quiet one. The months went by until the day finally came when we all were together again in the novitiate chapel to hear the Archbishop say those words that changed Pat from Pat to M. Power, chaplain of the Serra Club, John Kaufer, Se- attle Serra Club president, and Rev. Stephen Szeman, Arch- diocesan Director, of Vocations. The other three winners were Kathy Kelly of Forest Ridge, John Flower of St. Ed- ward Parish CCD Classes in Shelton and John Billington from St. J6seph School in Vancouver. Sister. Strangely, instead of separating her from us, every- thing seemed to bring her closer than ever. In our home where we all love each other and help each other, Pat's vocation was born. It was here she learned service to others and it was here that God was a part of our daily lives. How humble and grate- ful we are that this gift was given to our family--one of us was chosen to serve Him in the religious life. This is why vocations in those who feel they have the divine invitation. Christ chooses His nuns to fulfill His plan. The realization of His Love for His religious can change a farm girl in Homedale into a sister teach- ing at some leading Catholic college. This same awareness could transform a society girl into a missionary sister in a re- mote mission in the hills of China. REV. MR. PATRICK DENEVAN I know where. Nuns come from!

Korean Catholic Newspaper Sold SEOUL, Korea, May 23 (NC) -- The Catholic-owned Seoul : daily paper Kyunghyang Shin- mun, long known for its op- position to the Liberal party and the government of erst- while President Syngman Rhee, : has been sold. Purchaser is Hong Pyunghee, a local businessman. Arch- bishop Paul Ro of Seoul, who was legally responsible for the paper's debts, let it known last January that he wanted to see the paper sold. Despite a daily circulation of about 12{},- 000 copies, it had been losing master of religion education degree. Rev. Mr. Denevan has two sisters, Mrs. Robert Hamelin of Medford and Mrs. Leslie Fos- mire of Seattle and a brother, William of San Jose, Calif. Before beginning his new as- signment the new priest will have a short vacation at home with his parents. Paper's First L  Layman Editor VANCOUVER, B. C., May 20 ': (WC) -- The British Columbia " Catholic newspaper has its first . layman as editor in its 32- year history. He is Joe Cun- ningham, a member of the staff since 1956. Cunningham succeeds Rev. J. P. Carney, who was named materials and singing endless hymns Lin Latin. Now that my sister has taken her final vows, I can look back at that cozy afternoon scene with a deeper understanding and real appreciation. What better place can there be to announce a vocation than in the presence of one's family? It is the Catholic home which is generally the center where vocations are planted, take root, and grow. Children are what the bomes make them, If parents are con- scious of their religion, they will bestow reverent minds, and prayerful practices on their children. It is sometimes, however, difficult for a parent, especially a mother, to accept the fact that her daughter wants to become a religious. Only worldly and selfish par- ents would dare refuse to give back to GOd a Iife which God gave, which belongs to Him for all eternity, and which He can take from them in any of many ways. A parent who wilfully dis- courages a daughter from en - tering an order by picturing the life of a nun as difficult, lonely, thickly strewn with ob- ligations, and far removed from the world is refusing to God what he or she has no right to as a finite creature. As need not be said, not every Catholic girl has a reli- gious vocation. Many young girls live in the Catholic tradi- money since it resumed publi- by Archbishop W. M. Duke of cation on Rbee's downfall in Vancouver to serve with Rev. April, 1960.
