THE RECTOR SAW RED
Quite recently I read of the sudden death of a man whose pastor I
visited the following day. I inquired of the pastor what kind of I Catholic

Then came questions. I was now talking to myself. Do we have
"Retrealeliouse Catholics" at Malvern? Are there in our member-
ship individuals who use the Retreat only for that once-A-year
spiritual hath? no we have men who, utter listening to and meditrt.

Lord. go away unchanged, unimproved, unnlindful of thzir duties
to God, sell‘, and fellow-man?
The purpose of the Retreat is to help us to lead better lives, to fulhll
better the duties that are ours, to make us love God more and to serve Him
more faithfully, to bring as eventually to Him Who is Eternal Happiness.
The Retreat-Muster hopes that he sends his retreatants back to their homes
butter sons of their Heavenly Father, better busbnnds and fathers, better
parishioners and citizens. We do not expect (even though we sometimes
hope for) the miraculous. We know that habits of ' g ‘ "‘ are not
easily eradlcatcd, but we do hope and work for and pray that all will go
away just 2 little improved for their weekend with God.
Will 5:: RED AGAIN
If the good pastor is right, if some of our retreatants are not good
Catholics, if some are not seen, or too infrequently seen, at Holy Mass and
at the Communion railings of their parish churches, I expect my face will
be red again-not flushed as before, but blushed to learn that the graces
God so generously channeled through the spiritual exercises of the -retreat
have been so ignored, so wasted. or so quickly dissipated.
May we have no so-called “Retreat-House Catholics"!

This oratory will be situated at the east end of the second floor

design and original in every respect. This will be a chapel of which

Retreatants in our Eucharistic King. ‘ ,
