The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Page Five -. Bi S H 0 P'S M E S SAG E DEARLY BELOVED IN CHRIST" We ale living in times when.the hearts and souls of men are sorely tried. Never before has the future been so unpredictable; the whole world seems to be disillusioned and without hope. In the midst of all this confusion and bewilderment, God-fearing people turn, on the Feast of the Nativity, to the crib of tlie Babe of Bethlehem for true peace and hope. As He did over nineteen hundred years ago, so now Our Divine Savior comes to save the world from its depression, its despair and its despond- ency. Our Lord comes to set the hearts of men right with God. He sol;es its ills not by giving to the world a formula for finances, trade agreements,: armaments or war, but by being born as a babe in the insignfficanl village of Bethlehem. His mother found refuge in a shepherd's cave and there He was born. The humility of His birth reminds the World that it must shed pride, greed and hate and wth the Wise Men follow the star of Bethlehem that will lead it back to God. r On this Christmas Day, we wish to express our appreciation of the many prayers which have been offered by our beloved flock for our speedy. recovery and return to full health. We pray to the Prince of Peace that the blessing of God may descend upon our clergy, our religious and our faithful. May the Christ Child be with us, one and all, unto the end. h i; Bishop of Seattle Feast of the Nativity, 1947 The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Page Five -.
