SLATEConfrocfor 17th N. w VE. 1569 Family Extraordinary tContinued from page 11) Danny vehemently insisted that it was too his birthday present and furthermore it was a very good one. It took a little diplomacy on his fos- ter mother's part to convince him that the dishpan was not connected with his birthday, without dulling his joy. Finally the great day came. Danny wmas simply simmering with excitement. He personally interviewed his young ex- pected guests and made sure that they intended to be present. As the hour for the festivities approached, his constant trailing Mrs. Erin about the house posed a problem for her of arranging the pres- ents, without him seeing them. She put him ir the living room and to occupy his attention, brought in a little cupcake with a single candle on it. To her as- tonishment, he promptly seized upon it, and exhibited it to the other hildren as his birthday cake. Moreover, he was bursting with pride over it! A few minutes later, Mrs. Erin threw open the folding doors, revealing the din- ing room gaily decorated and on the table the gifts all gathered under the cover- ing of the over-estimated dishpan, on top of which rested a beautiful big birth-. day cake, lighted by six colored candles. The children came dashing in, Danny foremost In the rush. He stopped short. Wonder spread over his countenance. His mouth opened. His eyes were the size of dollars. He was speechless. A silence fell on the whole room as the realization dawned on the others that they were witnessing omething much deeper than mere childish pleasure. Then out of the mit welling up ih his eyes, two great tears began to course down the solemn little cheeks. A sob broke the stillness. It wasn't Danny's but came from sensi- tive, sympathetic Peter. In a moment they were all crying, Mrs. Erin with the rest. That evening, after the children had all been put to bed, recounting the story to her kindly, understanding husband, she concluded in a voice still choked with emotion: "You know, Dennis, I suddenly realized, as never before, just how much these kids need us." Yes, Mrs. Erin, "my how these kids need you !"--not just you as an individual foster parent, but hundreds more like you. These kids need adults who love children enough to want to understand them, to help children help themselves-- adults who can think within themselves what you said to us that time Ronnie went a little berserk shortly after he came to you, "This boy had Bo many reasons why he had to be mean," adults who have enough'faith and hope to say, as you did, "He'll be all right when he is one of us.'! They need people with patience enough to let a hurt, anxious, insecure child determine his own pace in developing and showing his affection for his foster parents. They need people with enough humility to respect the child as WHY THREE MASSES AT CHRISTMAS? BOUT the middle of the fifth cen- tury, St. Leo the Great authorized pries{m to repeat the celebration of Mass on great feasts so that no one might be deprived of the privilege of assisting at the divine mysteries. The custom of three Masses on Christ- mas-at first, restricted to bishops--was introduced into Franoe when Charlemag- ne established the Roman Rite in his states. Little by little, this practice became general. Since the twelfth century, all priests have had the privilege of celebrating three consecutive Masses on Christmas. Many liturgists attach a mystical sig- nificance to the three Masses: The first, at midnight or before dawn on Christ- mas morning, signifies the darkness of the world before the birth of Christ: the Mass at dawn, the grace brought into the world with the coming of Christ; the third, in the full light of day, the abun- dant graces in which the world may par- ticipate now that the Redeemer has been born. a creature with "God-given rights to his " sum life and the pursuit of his own hap- piness. They need foster parents thor- oughly imbued with the most Christian ideal of unselfish devotion to children not because they are pretty, charming, bright, talented, but because they are sons of God, heirs of heaven and little sisters and brothers to all of us in the Mystical Body. Catholic Children's Bureau is more than proud of Dennis and Mary Erin; we are grateful to God for them and all like them. "May their tribe increase," and may the homeless Babe of Bethle- hem fill their souls with the unutterable peace "that surpasseth understanding" both during this Sacred Season and when they themselves come finally knocking at the portals of their Everlasting and True Home seeking admission as servants and foster parents of Christ's little ones. N ETHIOPIA, Christmas is ceelbrated on January 7 because the Gregorian calendar is not followed there. Last year on this date, Fides Service reported, some 5,000 pupils from the schools of Addis Abada passed before the Emperor and Empreu of Ethiopia to receive a woolen shirt and a packet of sweets as a Christ- ma gift. All the teachers who assisted in the distribution )f gifts were enter- tained at a buffet lunch. Kind Old Lady--Do you like going to school, Roger ? Roger---Yes, ma'am. I like coming back too.
