Dear Graduates of 1954:
We are living in times of novelty and change. In the very atmosphere
about us, there seems to beanervous intolerance for that which recalls the
past. People become enthusiastic very readily over anything new, even if
extravagant and radical, in studies, in politics, in economics, in moral and
spiritual problems. The Church has neverfeared the healthy development.
But in the midst of this feverish preocupation with what is new, and in the
onrushing succession of theories and activities, it is important to have a
right judgment of things, to maintain an orderly connection between the
old and the new, to restrain and combat those social changes which defy
the principles of the Divine and natural law. We must preserve our civili-
zation from madness of the fool who would deny God, reject the right of
the workingman, destroy the family, exclude the principles of morality
from industry and augment the struggle of the classes. You are entering
this maelstrom of social, economic and religious conditions. You, there-
fore, have an obligation and a sacred duty as well as a difficult task to do
your bit to make this a better wor-ld to live in.
The remembrance of the happy years you spent here at St. Florian,
dear graduates, will always be cherished by you. In time you will realize
more and more that the beauty of these years is the result of the kind of
life you followed here, your studies, your joyful recreations, your religious
practices, the dedication of your energies to the cultivation of good citizen-
ship of this wonderful country of ours. In your family life and here at
school you have been trained in the knowledge and path of truth. Keep it
straight and ever ascending.
My dear Graduates, the Fathers and the Sisters of St. Florian are proud
to give you back to your families, proud to send you into society, a chosen
legion of young men and women. May yours be the guiding light following
the beams of the Immaculate Heart.
Yours in the Same Heart,
Rev. Peter P. Walkowiak, Pastor

To the KEEPER OF KEYS, HIS HOLINESS, POPE PIUS XII, in gratitude for the many times
He has used the KEYS to our splrtual advantage. To You, Holy Father, who alone among the
Church Sovereign Pontiffs, set foot on American soil and made generations happy by this momen-
tous statement: "My desire cherished foralong time, was to see with my own eyes this country
and to feel the pulsation of its life and labors. What could be more natural for me than to know
at first-hand this great and powerful nation, which by its force of its labor and organization, by
its ideals, by its inexhaustible sources of wealth, has done such great things in the past and
promises so much for the future, not only for this country but for all humanity. I am indeed
happy to find myself within the territory of a great people who know how to unite so beautifully
and successfully a sense of discipline with the exercise of a just, legitimate, and well-ordered
liberty. May all the sons and daughters of the North American continent enjoy a noble and decent
existence, which is a prerequisite of a true lasting peace."
May the PRINCE of PEACE reward your fatherly solicitude with a WORLD PEACE during
your gracious reign. This is our Marian Prayer.
