Better Stations wanted

WHAT a tragedy that he was unable to base his authority on the witness and faith of the Church, for surely many, even of real goodwill, must have felt that the authority of that Bible which he physically handled with such effect was, taken alone, insufficient for the modern mind. Yet, doubtless. the spell he cast temporarily overcame this evangelical weakness. Whereas Fr. Proudman, standing in those magnificent Dominican robes. symbols of centuries of the continuity and authority of the Catholic Church, evoked from one passer-by the curious comment: " He's got it all wrong, maie—just like the Pope," and from another:" They're just a flock of sheep." For my part, I would suggest that any preacher on that occasion—and Fr. Proudman was excellent is hopelessly handicapped by the appalling Stations held up over the crowd. I can think of few better deeds froni a benefactor than the presentation of a set of Stations in the style of modern, vivid, poster art. A Catholic tradition of singing, which rises above a feeble, nervous whine would help also. Surely a good choir around the platform leading the rest would be worth it.
