Possession By Demons NEW YORK (AP) — Cases of persons being possessed by demons "are still fairly frequent," Dr. Jean Lhermitte, a French neurologist and Roman Catholic layman, writes in a new book, "True and False Possesion" (Hawthorne). "Whatever sceptics, unbelievers and the ill-informed may think, demonopathic manifestations are not extinct. . . . Although it is currently maintained that cases of diabolical possession appeared more frequently in an age when religious faith was more vigorous than today, observation of the facts proves otherwise."

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a store-, house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. I was a little girl, then. The pews at our church were rough wooden benches, and my feet wouldn't reach the floor. But, as though it were yesterday, I remember his sermon. About a woman who poured oil on the feet of Jesus. Some people said this was a wasteful thing to do. The oil was expensive; the money might have been given to the poor . . . But Jesus wasn't angry with the woman! "In the eyes of God," our old minister said, "the most precious treasure is the love in a human heart." No single thought has influenced my life more than that one. Most of my happiness <— all of my strength when sorrows come — have been somehow entwined with that simple truth. I shudder at times to think; what if that day I had not been there? » A sermon, a prayer, a Bible passage does not touch the same chord in every heart. $ut as you seek each Sunday to see life through the eyes of God, there will come mighty visions stirring the depths of your soul.
