A During these days of extreme tension and crisis , one is re-'
minded of an incident in the life of St. Francis of Assisi. One day
while he was hoeing in his garden, he was asked by one of his
'close iassgciates, what he would do if he were suddenly to learn
thathveqwals to die at sunset that day. After a few moments re-
flecti-ori St. Francis said, "I would finish hoeing my garden."
seems to me an answer to all the troubled young people
f "esQ'Qa,'dayS who are about to step into a world that appears to
Holxdno security for them or for anyone, young or old. Why
should they bother to go to college or plan for a career when an
atomic war threatens the very existence of civilized man? How
can they plan for marriage and afamily in the face of presentun-
certainties? We can't be sure of anything, these young people
say, not now, or next year or the year after that. Next summer,
or some summer too dangerously near, it may all go, the life we
have planned and prepared for. Our world is in such deafllyperil
that we have lost the promise of tomorrow.
St. Francis put the answer in a simple metaphor, GO ON
HOEING YOUR GARDEN. The task is still here--.the lesson to
prepare, the examination to write, the career to plan, the job
to perform, or Uncle Sam to serve. If the future looks dark,
so did it for the Christians during Nero's reign, for the early
Pilgrims, the colonial army at Valley Forge, the Blue and the
Grey at Gettysburg, or the Americans after PearlHarbor. And
out of each crisis has come improvement and progress, a better
life, agreater tomorrow. So however dark it seems today, how-
ever dark it is, we shall meet life better if we have fullfilled the
present to the best of our ability. Today is still ours, it is our
obligation to live it fully. As St. Francis said, we must go on
"hoeing our garden."
