P,R,OGRESS Some Thoughtt00 on Catholic Education By The Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly Archbishop of Seattle "Nowhere is the wisdom of Our Holy Mother, The Church, more apparent than in her laws and regulations - respecting Catholic education. The Code of Canon Law ordains that the faithful shalt be so instructed from their earliest youth in such a way that religious and moral training shall have the chief place. This training shall be in a Catholic school insofar as that be humanly possible. "Catholic education means exclusively Catholic, from kin- dergarten to college, from the first grade to the Master's Degree. Education in the Arts and Sciences, impregnated with a true Catholic philosophy of life, is available in our very midst at Seattle University. Education which ignores The Creator and Ruler of the Universe is necessarily incom- plete and inadequate to meet the needs of men, of govern. ment or of society. True education is fundamentally a re- ligious proposition. "The conspiracy of secularism to oust God from national life is making education its first battleground and religious-sponsored schools its first target. The results are apparent if we would open our eyes to the scene about us. Almost daily our newspapers detail for us the deterioration of honor and honesty, of manners and morals, of safety and security. "In view of these and other conkiderations, every .serious-mindl, right-thinking, student will readily and eagerly avail himself of the opportunity at hand to seek a higher education under Catholic auspices. It is to Se. attle University that we must look for lay leaders in Catholic Action here, men and women who are spiritually formed and intellectually informed, men and women of sturdy faith and upright Christian character."
