China, Japan, the Americas, the Philippines and other different outposts of the Church. The ceremonies, which lasted through Friday. Saturday ane Sunday. have been magnificent.

On Friday, during the preliminary retreat, there was the solemn ceremony of the renewal of vows before the Superior General, who has come from Rome for the occasion. The village is decorated, the church and grounds are in gala dress, and the presence of hundreds of visitors and relations corning to say good-bye to sons and brothers makes this annual departure of the missionaries a very solemn and im essive scene.
