LOYOLA COLLEGE Page 2 REVIEW of the Feast of Christ the King. His many and brilliant encyclicals gripped the a ttention of the world. With a masterly grasp of principles that has evoked uni- versal admiration, this great Pontiff outlined the social and economic problems and the solutions to be applied to them. His reign was characterized = a humble submission to the will of God, a fearless courage in facing countless difficulties, divine daring in his defence of the rights of the Сеше, and a life nobly offered and evidently accepted by God for peace in a strife-torn world. He had the warmest affection of the faithful and the respect of even the Church's enemies. He was regarded as a leader of the forces of good continually fighting the forces of evil. The free men and women whose battles he fought will not forget him. NEY Our Tryst with Royalty The late spring had robbed Montreal of much of its floral gaiety, but a brilliant sun and a warm welcome made our Royal Visitors aware of the affectionate loyalty that filled the hearts of its citizens. There are those who would make of royalty a matter of pomp and circumstance, of social amenities and straining precedences. But as the King and Queen rode by our hearts throbbed with a higher interest than that. We were moved because behind all the pomp and glitter there was evidently something solid, substantial, real. “Let every soul’, says St. Paul, ‘Бе subject to higher powers; for there is no power but from God, and those that are, are ordained of God”. There is the substance. To make their Majesties social figureheads is to demean their office and, in so doing, to demean ourselves. We welcomed the King and Queen because they are symbols of an authority which we are in conscience bound to honour and obey. Our loyalty is based on no emotional urge, but is rendered with a feeling of honour and dignity, since it is our submission to the will of God. Unlike our fellow-Catholics subject in various parts of the world to tyrannical statutes we Canadians enjoy with the peoples of the British Commonwealth true religious and democratic liberty. The unimpeded daily exercise of our religion gives testimony to our liberty; the gracious, unpretentious demeanour of our Sovereigns proclaims the true democracy of our country. ууу Up Spain! For more than thirty months the whole of Spain was ravaged by a cruel war. For months and months Catholics prayed for a satisfactory end- ing. Finally in March 1939, their prayers were answered. With the surrender of Madrid, Franco's victory over the loyalist' reds was confirmed. But one cannot consider his victory only from the military or political point of view. It was a victory for Christianity over one of its worst enemies—Commu- nism. It can justly be compared with Constantine's victory at the Milvian Bridge, or with that of Charles Martel at Tours. It is a thing to deplore that even the Catholic world during the course of the war was divided in opinion. The majority sided with Franco's rebels , while a small faction were for the government's loyalists . This was the work of false propaganda. Especially in the United States was this opposition among Catholics noted. Some were deceived by the terms rebels and “‘loyalists’’, but most by the “atrocities’’ and ‘‘cruelties’’, always front page news, said to have been com- mitted by the rebels. But the burning of churches, the butchering of defenceless

His personality had commanded a feeling of intimate affection besides the deepest respect for his powers of intellect and diplomacy. Bearing the name of peace, his first words broadcast to the nations were of peace. By his bearing, manner, and temperament, no less than by his well- balanced judgment, he impresses one as a conciliator, an arbitrator, a peacemaker, an apostle of peace. Like his predecessor Pius XI, of revered memory, he has come to the Pontificate at a crucial period. Pius XI found a world shattered by war and revolution. All about him ancient governments had broken; all about him was a world torn by war and hatred. What he saw was a world demoralized, in the exact sense, a world which had lost its moral bearings and its moral values. To-day is a time of wars and rumours of wars, of revolutions and revolts, of strifes and contentions, of social, economic and political upheavals. The moment calls for a man—the man of peace who shall ensure that priceless blessing to us in our day. Pius is a name of peace, and our Holy Father, the twelfth of shat title, in choosing it has given us a good omen and has brought solace and comfort to our hearts. In his august office of Supreme Shepherd of souls, he stands before us as the ideal ruler for the Church in these parlous times. The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. y т Pius XI On Friday, February 10, four days after completing his seventeenth year as Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church, Pope Pius XI was called by God from his labours here below to his eternal reward. Maker of History and Champion of Truth, the Pope of Catholic Action, the Pope of the Workingman, the Pope of the Missions, Pius the Peacemaker in his first encyclical ‘‘The Peace of Christ” launched a world-wide crusade to win the world for Christ. One of the outstanding acts by which he sought to accomplish this aim was the institution
