WARNING OF FRANCE UNHEEDED Jesuit Preacher Attacks Birth Control Shops

From our own Correspondent


An attack upon the continued sale of contraceptives in this country, in spite of the dire warning of France, was made by the Rev. W. d'Andria, S.J., preaching in St. Aloysius's Church, Garnethill, Glasgow, on Sunday.

" We are a Christian country," he said,

" a country in which the word Christianity, is frequently on the lips of our statesmen. But we must remember that Christianity is not merely a belief in Jesus Christ; it is also the conducting of ourselves according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

" In every important street in this city," he continued, " there are shops wherein takes place a flagrant defiance of God's law. In the windows of these shops disgusting wares are displayed even before the eyes of little children. Need 1 say more? Read the pastoral letter of the Archbishop of Toulouse. He will tell you from what sin France was suffering.

Father d'Andria also took to task those who said that this or that Catholic nation had let the Allies down. What a nation did it did not do as Catholic. The action of Scotland as a nation would not be the action of the Presbyterian Church.

There were others who asked what the Pope was doing. The Holy Father was the only tote neutral. So far he was the only power which had fulfilled every condition of neutrality, but he did not hesitate to condemn injustice wherever he saw it.
