With filial love and gratitude we, the class oi forty-five,
humbly dedicate this small work to him whom God has
destined to pilot Holy Mother Church through one of this
world's stormiest periods, to Our Holy Father, Pope Pius Xll.
We beg His Holiness, as head of the visible Church, the
Mystical Body of Christ, of which we are all members, to
receive with this work our pledges of loyalty and love and
our promises to offer daily to Our Lady Queen of Peace his
own prayer for "PEACE IN THE TRUTH, IUSTICE AND
CHARITY OF CHRIST."
Humbly we beg his benediction.

In last year's edition of the Torch, the class of forty-four
attempted to show how all the acts of the daily life of a member
of the Mystical Body are brought into Holy Mass and there offered
to God the Father together with and through His divine Son, Christ.
Conscious of the truth that no theme could be more sublime
than that of the Sacrifice of Calvary, we have chosen to celebrate
this year the Peace and Unity of Holy Mother Church. the Mystical
Body of Christ, in which the Eucharistic Sacrifice plays an essential
part: for it is in this Sacrifice that the members of the Mystical Body
are united, the greatest with the least, in Christ and with Christ and
one with another. In his Encyclical Mystici Corporis, our Holy
Father says: "Through the Eucharistic Sacrifice Christ our Lord
wished to give special evidence to the faithful of our union among
ourselves and with our divine Head ,.... For here the sacred
ministers act in the person not only of our Saviour but of the whole
Mystical Body and of everyone of the faithful."1 Through this most
holy bond of union wherein we are nourished daily with the Sacra-
ment of His love, ought we not to grow rich in Christ?
In this work we pay especial reverence to those members of the
great family of God through whom we ourselves are united in a
particular way with the divine source of all blessings, Christ. We
honor: our common Father. His Holiness, Pope Pius XII, Vicar of
Christ on earth, who exhorts us all "to love Holy Mother Church
with a devoted and active love"2: the Bishop of our diocese, His
Excellency, the Most Reverend William F. Murphy: our pastors,
our teachers, our parents, both the living and the dead: our class-
mates who are in the armed forces and those who have been called
from the Church of this world to that of the next: finally, all the
underclassmen of St. Joseph High School. For all these we pray
the prayer of our Saviour to His heavenly Father: "That they all
may be one, as thou Father in me and I in thee, that they also may
be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me"3.
If our picture is not as complete as it should be and as we should
like it to be, it is due in part to our inability to express perfectly the
spiritual by the use of the slender material resources at hand. The
spirit of love and sincerety, however, has actuated our undertaking.
