Todiiiffllas ever, the world is searching frantically for the
key to unlock the door of peace. It is groping desperately in
the darkening shadows of war for that evasive keyhole. But all
the keys in the world have thus far failed to turn the magic
latch that will swing open to all the door of security and hope
and happiness. For that key is not the golden key of oratory
or the leaden key of military might. The key to world peace
was given to mankind so many hundreds of years ago by the
Redeemer, speaking in His Sermon on the Mount, to all the gen-
erations of our race. It is the theme of the Eight Beatitudes.
It is justice, humility and sacrifice, Chastity and charity. It is
ever the ancient and the new song of all times, the Gospel of
Christ and His Church. The world has great need today, as it
has in every age, to contemplate and meditate upon His Beati-
And that ultimate goal of ours-that evasive peace. Is it
not the goal given so beautifully in the Eight Beatitudes?
Jesus Christ said that the Kingdom of Heaven would be the
reward in the hereafter, not the kingdom of time and space.
But He also said that those who lived His Gospel would even
possess in part the joys of earth and would find justice, com-
fort and mercy both here and in Heaven. Is this not the answer
It is towards this goal, a peaceful world through living
the Beatitudes, that we, the student body of Aquinas High
School in this critical year of 1949, do pledge ourselves in this,
our annual. We will prayerfully strive to live the Beatitudes
and help others along their beautiful and sacred path, so that,
in the long years following commencement, we will find our
world the world We want it to be-this world of tomorrow,
where justice and charity and Christ Our Leader reign su-
preme and peaceful in the hearts of men.
