Malvern Men Can Merit Their Share
Of Rich Graces During’ Marian Year
By REV. WILLIAM J. KANE
The Marian Year has begun. we, the Men of Malvern, wont to play
u part in it and to merit a full share of the rich graces, blessings and
indulgences that will be forthcoming to all devoted children of Mary.
In on encyclital letter entitled. “Fulgens Corona," given at Rome on
september 5. 1953, our Holy Father proclaimed the year beginning Decem-
hcr 3, 1953, and extending to December 8, 1954, as s Marian Year in com-
memoration or the centenary of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception
of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
During this period it is the wish or our Holy Father that Catholics
throughout the world should lit: up their minds and hurts in prayerrul
intercession to the Mother of God tor the multiple needs or modern man.
Especially urged by His Holiness is the olrei-ing of prayers for the
return of all men In Christ, the return of peace, charity and inslice. and
the restoration of the liberty or the Church in countries where catholics
nre now experiencing persecution.
That men have abandoned Christ is quite evident from a glance at
almost any edition of any secular newspaper. Every day one sees in print
accounts or horrible murders, of divorces, therts and other crimes. That
peace is absent from our present-(lay world no one questions, That charity
and justice are wanting; that Chri ‘s hunch is not only restricted in her
eR‘orLs to carry out His divine mission, but, in many places, physically am.
prisonrd are matters ul record.

peace, charity and justice-to man! certainly not our nuclear sricn ' ls
nor our materialistic philosophers and professors. certainly not the mi
taken theologians of our clay nor the men who sit at round tables to plan
the destiny of the world's peoples. ‘
The challenge of the antichrist has been hurled into the face of thc
Christian world. Unbelief there has always been, but for the MM time, in
our zllth century, entire notions, comprising a large part of the worlirs
