POTTS Jeweler Many Timely Work Can Be Obtained During Lent. At the beginning of Holy Wee the library staff has made som notes on a few of the religious book that are outstanding for Lente reading. The religious books ha been circulating steadily from th reserve in the main hall the pas few weeks. Bach year in the spring someon turns to the "Little Flowers of S Francis of Assisi" for inspiration and there is a tiny volume by Mu kerji called "Daily Meditations" tha reminds us that beyond all th tumult there is the silence. An anthology of spiritual wisdon selected by Gerald Bullett is drawn from many ages and literatures ani 3 entitled "The Testament of Light. Hailed by Hugh Wajpole as "one o the best living writers of Englisl prose," the anthologist has includes :n his book many prose extracts as well as poetry, and prominent min sters have found this book stimu lating- in its spiritual insight. Passion Characters Described. In "Figures of the Passion of On: iord" Gabriel Miro describes the chief characters of the Passion. H. show us Caiaphas, Anna. .Pontiu; Pilate, Nicodemus in their officia roles and their reaction to the per sonality of Jesus. Each chapter ;ives a complete picture iri itself. "Jesus of Nazareth, the prince of ife" by A. J. Reynolds is a narra- ive of Jesus from Hie Gospel of fathew, Mark, Luke and John. tf$ rtO^- This book belongs to the Elizabeth Hanf ord collection. "Meditations on the Cross" by Toyohiko Kagawa are most appropi- ate for the Lenten season, and since Mr. Kagawa's visit to Des Moines, there has been an increased interest in his books. "Mirror of the Months" by Sheila Kayo-Smith contains twelve "meditations on the spiritual meaning' of the months of the year. The most timely are those on March and April. In the chapter on March, the month of the Passion, she meditates on Calvary, where willing acceptance of suffering was made a means by which grace may be obtained. April, the month of the Resurrection, commemorates the redemption of the human thought by Christianity which baptized into itself the best of Judaism and paganism. "Moods and Truths." "Moods and Truths" by Fulton J. Sheen compares the moods which dominate modern thinking and the truths which inspire ultra-modern thinking. Seeks to direct minds to the eternal and abiding- truths which must remain the foundations of sound thinking because they are od-made. Mothers and teachers will find the New Testament stories in volume 10 of the "Master Library" and the Story of the Master in volume 6 of "Book of Life" lovely to reaJ with their children. The Book of Life was a gift to the library from Miss Gertrude Decker. "Pilgrim Artist in Palestine" by '- F. Anson includes the Way of the ross--the actual places where the events in the Sacred Passion took place. "Songs From the Slums" by Toyo- iiko Kagawa are poems written vhen the author was a consumptive icy living in the slums of Japan. Re- ·eals .the sensitiveness of the youth o the sorrows of his people and of ,is desire to help . Mary Pickford Writes. Sorrow over the loss of her moth- r and brother prompted Mary Pick- ord to write "My Rendezvous With Jfe" to help others find a way out F that sorrow by gaining faith in od and themselves. She describes eaifch as life progressing beyond our hy-Eioal senses. In regard to a fu- ure life, she says that nothing in jis universe is ever lost. God would ot create a distinct personality just o wipe it out in a few years. She notes the saying that "Happy lives ·e little lives. They do not live be- ond their rose-wreathed walls." lose who venture out into a life of rife must accept sorrow and bear gallantly, looking for consolation ward the shining mountain · tops ahead. "Who is Then This Man?" by Melanie Mamas is the story of the last three years of Christ's life on earth. It is told in a beautiful and reverent manner by a French woman.
