FCDIQWLARD 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. I .. sl if +2 ' 1 7 O

DEDICLQTICDN 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. "Lumen Christi"
