By Dr. Carlyle Adams Question: "I have heard lhai he Roman Catholic Church caches that the single life is a higher state' than the married, Would you please explain this?" --Indianapolis, Ind. Answer: In' the Roman Cath- Iic Church marriage is regarded as one of the sacraments.. On the other hand, it teaches hat "the virtue of chastity" is Christian ideal. This latter teaching is basec on two passages in the New Testamenl. One is Malthew 19:11, .2, and the other is Corinthians ':8, 32, 33. 35. In the latter passage St. Paul iuggests that one who is unmarried has more opportunity for undivided service to God.

On the other hand, St. Paul points out in the passage in Corinthians that unless the single or unmarried state can be used for the Glory of God it is better for one to be married. * » * Question: "If we believe in predestination that God has control over whatever we do and our every act is predestined, then how do you explain the purpose of God's sending His Son into the world to show men how they should live?" --Mechanicsville, N. Y. · Answer: First of all I doubt If you have properly defined "predestination." It does not mean that God predetermines every single event of life. Predestination refers only to the ultimate salvation of souls. The doctrine holds that God Himself elects those whom He will save. · * · Question: "U is suggested by some clergymen that God gave man a free choice between good and evil. Would not an omnipotent and omniscient God know from the beginning which of His children would be good and which would be evil?" -- Newport, Ky. Answer: God endowed His creatures with intelligence and the ability lo make judgments and choices. We mortals are able to do whatever we wish to do, within Ihe limils of physical ability. But we are not able to escape the inevitable consequences of the things we choose to do. The theology of "predestination" is the doctrine that people attain the goodness and love of God not by their own merits but by His mercy and grace. Question: "In my Catholic Bible I find the name of St, Tarsicius. A friend who is intelligent i n these matters has corrected my spelling and insists that the name should be Tarcisius. Can the Catholic Bible make a mistake, or are there two spellings for this name?" --Jamaica, N. Y. Answer: Tarsicius is the correct spelling. This Saint lived in the third or fourth century and was martyr. According to tradition ic was killed in Rome when attacked by a mob while he was carrying the Blessed Sacrament. It is believed that he was a deacon. His feast day is August IS. He Is not to bo confused with another Saint of the eighth century whose name was Tarasius.
