Celebration of the Feast of the Birth of Christ will begin with Midnight Masses in churches through- out the Archdiocese of Seattle on Christmas Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 24. Processions to the crib are planned before the Mass in many churches. In his official Christmas letter, the Most Rev- erend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, extends "warm, cordial greetings as we prepare to observe the great Feast of the Nativity... " Making note of his absence from the Archdiocese for the Vatican Council during the past several months, the Archbishop continues: "The Feast of the Nativity of Christ leaves us helpless in the presence of the amazing humility and limitless love of God for us. Christ became Man to save us and to bring hope and happiness to a world that had been dark- ened by the sin of our first parents . .. "Indeed, the dominant tone, the principal theme of this annually recurring Feast is love. All the as- pects of Christian charity and love are here. In a special manner, Christmas joins man to God, and men to each other. Christ becomes the Son of Godwwe are His brothers and brothers of one another. He came on earth to bring love and peace to all mankind and our relations with one another, irrespective of race, creed, color fo national origin, must be marked by friendliness, neighborliness, thoughtfulness, forebear- ance, understanding, sympathy and tolerance. "Never may we by prejudice, injustice, ignorance, deny to others the blessings, happiness and joy we wish our own friends during this Holy Season. This is the season that makes the whole world kinwthat drapes a mantle of benevolence over all of us." In addition to the Midnight Masses, Mass will be offered according to the regular Sunday Mass schedule in most churches on Christmas Day.

Vatican Acknowledges Peter Pence Offering Acknowledgment of the Peter's Pence of- fering from the Archdiocese of Seattle has been received by the Most Reverend Thomas A. Con- nolly, Archbishop of Seattle. Signed by Amleto Cardinal Cicognani, Vatican Secretary of State, the letter follows: Your Excellency: The munificent Peter's Pence offering which Your Excellency recently presented from the Archdiocese of Seattle for the year 1963, has been a twofold source of solace and comfort to the Sovereign Pontiff. This generous oblation testifi,es first of all to the ardent feelings of respectful homage and loyal- ty which His beloved children nourish for the Vicar of Christ, and to the strong bonds of loving affec- tion which unite them with the See of Peter and the august Person of His Holiness. Moreover, it gives eloquent expression to the fraternal charity which animates the donors, who, at the cost of no little privation and sacrifice, have thus furnished the Holy Father with liberal means to relieve the suffering, console the exiled, assist the sick and shelter the homeless, whose pleas for aid are unceasingly raised towards the Common Father of all. Confident that Our Divine Redeemer will not fail to recompense with a copious return of choice favours and special graces such devotion to His Vicar on earth, and such willing charity towards His less fortunate children, the Pontiff, renewing His heartfelt gratitude and invoking that heavenly reward upon Your Excellency, and the priests, religious and people of the Archdiocese of Seattle, imparts from His heart to you and to them His loving Apostolic Blessing.
