THE PAPAL ENVOY VISITS THE GRAIL

After the luncheon given in his honour by Adele, Countess Cadogan, on May 14, the Papal Envoy honoured the Grail with

a visit to the Headquarters at 58, Sloane Street. His Excellency, who was accom panied by Mgr. Godfrey and the other members of the Papal Mission, was taken over the house and was shown some of the diagrams and charts illustrating the organisation of the movement. In the main office he was attracted by the statistics of the Rainbow Scheme (for practical training for the apostolate) which had been started in January last and has already several hundreds of members working for its different sections.

Two maps attracted Mgr. rizzardo's attention, the first showing the numerous " outposts" of the Grail, and the second the distribution of the magazine to subscribers all over the world. The February issue, devoted to the study of Communism, he singled out as being very opportune. This number has been reprinted, as the demand far exceeded the supply.

Fisher Committee Work The Envoy visited the Fisher Committee room, where some of the secretarial work is done and the organisation of the industry in Cleator Moor is carried out. Here he saw statistics of unemployment in England, and photographs of the men at work at the Committee's workshops in Cleator Moor. He was much impressed with the designs of the toys and reliiious

figures exhibited. He then visited the Grail Chapel. Before giving his blessing to the Grail leaders present, His Excellency said, " I am happy, very happy, to have seen with my own eyes the wonderful work the Grail is doing and to be able to bring such consoling news to the Holy Father."
