Raymond Kearney, chancelorl of the Brooklyn diocese.

"One of the chief fdifficulties in carrying out the provisions of the decree, it appears to me," said Father Kearney, "is the size of many of the dioceses in this country. Take, for instance, the Brooklyn diocesj covering the distance from the East River to Montauk Point, with only one bishop with the authority to administer the sacrament of confirmation. At present, confirmation is administered several years after the reception of holy communion. "However." remarked Father Kearney, "if the decree is final we, shall adjust our conditions to its' requirements. The new order has not as yet been received officially end until it has been published and promulgated nothing definite can be said with reference to its operation.

This is an advantage to children not attending the Catholic schools for they are returned to the classes of religious Instruction." Mons. Thomas J.

In these localities the child in many Instances receives confirmation shortly after baptism and Holy Communion as early as 6 years of ace. Matter of Custom "There has been no absolute law regulating the practice in this country, mostly a matter of custom, but In vogue since the early days of the church here.

It has been found advantageous to the youth to delay confirmation until its later years for It is returned to classes of Instruction and better understands the real meaning of the sacrament to make them better and stroneer Christians and soldiers of Jesus Christ." "In this country, where many of the children not attending the Catholic schools are deprived of systematic religious instruction after they have received their first Holy Communion, the practice of bringing them back to prepare them for confirmation, supplies them with helpful rd lasting lessons in theier catechism taught to them by trained teachers."
