(Continued from Page 6) beyond a doubt that Love and Love alone is his motive. The entire history of man's salvation, wonderful and awe- some as it is, is explainable only in terms of Divine Love. If we Sacred History without realization clearly before us, we run the risk of missing the entire point of life. The only thing that is really necessary to gather from all that has gone before is this simple truth: GOD LOVES US IMMENSELY! If fr u have become convinced be- nd a doubt that this is so, the st part of our book has been a success. And the second book "The Christian Life" (God's Love Returned) follows as night follows the day. If you have not gotten this point the rest of the book will be of little value. Love, or the lack of it, is the to everything that is or ever will be. EPILOGUE The Church's Year of Grace We have tried to use an his- approach in presenting the truth of Christianity. Through reliving the history of the world, we have been enabled discover God's plan for man, meaning and purpose of life and also the essential truths re- vealed by God which must be known by all men. Through history we h a v e 1 e a r n e d about Jesus Christ. Through history the Christian n also better live Christ. This th is so fundamental that the urch has always used histori- cal events relived by the faithful as sources of knowledge and grace. Every year the Church re- lives, through her liturgy, the whole tremendous history of lvation. Beginning with Ad- nt, the Church in spirit takes us Back to the Old Testament and there, with the Jews of old, we recall and make real to our- selves the events that made Christmas possible and neces- sary. Seeing again what the world was like without Christ, dispositions of his soul are each Christmas Eve when Christ once again enters the world as a tiny Babe. Then comes the Epiphany when we recall Christ's public manifesta- tion to the world. During the weeks after the tiphany we relive Christ's in- [ncy, trying to learn of His virtues and seeking ever to im- itate them more perfectly as they reveal themselves in the events of His life. Then comes Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Again the Church spirit returns to the Old estament, there to recall again he historical theology that has made the horrible events of Holy Week necessary. W i t h Easter the Christian again rises with Christ. At Pentecost, the birthday of the Church; we thrill again with the Apostles as they tade their first converts; and through the Sundays after Pentecost we find ourselves re- living the life of the infant Church and recalling the essen- tial elements of the Kingdom which Christ has left us in the Catholic Church. Christ's Disposition Ours This entire process is one in- timately tied up with the idea of the Christian Mystery. At the time of St. Paul, the pagans used to celebrate pagan mystery rites. By reliving the life, death and rebirth of their god, or in some way by reliving the great deeds of their gods, the pagans felt in some sense to be able to acquire something of the life of the god himself. This idea struck St. Paul with great force. For what the pagans only hoped to do, through the Liturgical Year we Christians actually can do. For by reliving within ourselves the mysteries of Christ's Life, through the oc- casions of grace which they be- come, we can actually come to deepen within us the Life of our God, the Life of Jesus Christ. There is as much grace for us at our Little crib in the parish church as there would have been had we been actually present at the crib at Bethlehem if only we are willing to make use of this mystery by following the spirit of the liturgy and mak- ing Christ's dispositions ours. All of these mysteries are, of course, pivoted about the one great, ever- recurring mystery: that of Calvary. All of the mys- teries of the Life of Christ take their meaning from the Mass, the great redemptive act which is the focal point of all history, secular or religious. More Meanincjful With each succeeding spring, summer, fall and winter, the great mystery of nature becomes more meaningful; so does the history of human life, at those points where it is mingled with the divine, take on greater mean- ing each time we relive the life of Our God through birth, life, death and resurrection, through the liturgical year. And at ninety our appreciation of divine life will be greater only if we deepen it each year by reliving Life in Christ. This, then, concludes our course of instructions. The rest is up to you. We have shown you the meaning of Life, but you alone can make these truths real to yourself. We can show you Life, you alone can live it. The Catholic Church, Christ's visible Kingdom on earth, wel- comes you, she opens up to you a new life -- a share in God's own Life. For this were you created, but you, yourself, must of your own free will choose to join it. Please God this course will give you the grace to do so. Man is made to fly to His God. The Church can give you the needed instructions--the fuel of grace, but it is up to you to get off the ground, to realize the exalted purpose for which you were created, to find the happi- ness which only men who share GOD'S LIFE can know.

Lynch, pastor, and his faithful parishioners in erecting the 200-seat wood-framed struc- ture, built at a cost of $40,000 but valued because of many sav- ings in labor and material at $65,000. Father Lynch will be cele- brant of the solemn high Mass to be presided by Bishop Gill. The Rev. Joseph Buck, pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, Snoqualmie, will be deacon, and Rev.
