YEW told : You have the Pope behind you

From Our Own Correspondent

THE biggest contribution the Young Christian Workers can make al the present time is to lead young people back to an understanding of the meaning of life, said Fr. Agnellus Andrew, 0.F.M., to a crowded rally of Y.C.W. members in Manchester's Houldsworth Hall on Sunday.

Yoti have the Holy Father and the Chtirch behind you,"

Fr. Agnellus assured them.

Cardinal Griffin and Bishop Marshall sent their good wishes to the meeting, at which Alderman Hugh Lee and Alderman Leslie Lever. NEP. for Ardwick, were present.

People today, said Fr. Agnellus, drift along on the tide without exercising their will. They have become creatures of circumstance with no ideas about shaping today or tomorrow.

Few of them have any sense of a path through life or any sense of conviction of trying to lead others.

The Y.C.W. members, however, have a sense of purpose in life, a knowledge of life. a knowledge of what life is for.


The world is desperately in need of leadership, and it is for the movement to bring the forces of Christ into the life of the country—not in a mood of aggression. nor aith bitterness, but simply and solely for the love of Christ and the love of the world for which He died.

Thomas Hurst, leader of the Chorlton-on-Medlock Y.C.W. section, presided. The national secretary, Cliffe Metcalfe, spoke on preparation for marriage and family life, and the organiser of the girls' section. Sheila Jackson, spoke of women in the workshop and the part they can play in the restoration of family life.

The country has made " terrific advances" in social welfare but has sacrificed the sacredness and unity of the family. said Mr. W. Hough. national organiser. at the annual rally of the Liverpool Area Young Christian Worker movement. on Monday, hi the Acton Hall, Liverpool.
