NEWS AND NOTES

r 1 ■'O-MORROW is the Feast o f Feasts, when the rites of the Church are an Alleluia Chorus, and when there is no kneeling in the Divine Office. The angel’s words, “ He is not here ” were spoken over a tomb, where it was vain to seek Him ; because He is not a God of the dead, but o f the living. “ I arose and am still with thee,” are the first words o f to-m orrow’s Introit. He is with us as the bringer o f life and joy. We pray that the blessing and gladness of Easter may come abundantly upon all who read these lines and upon all they love.

Once more it is a jo y to acknowledge the zeal with which many of our Protestant brethren have again worked for a reverent observance o f Good Friday. Speaking generally, the time has not yet come when Catholic Bishops or Societies could approach Athletic Associations and other spoilers of Good Friday ; and therefore we are all the more thankful that devout Protestants are exerting their still considerable influence in the right direction.

Mgr. Seipel, who never quite got over the wound inflicted upon him by a would-be murderer, has been obliged by ill-health to give up the leadership o f the Christian Social Party in Austria. He remains, however, a convinced member of that P a r ty ; and he will still devote his voice and pen to the fulfilment of its Catholic ideals. We salute him with respect and gratitude.

Morning after morning, during last week and this, watchers of European affairs have been told that the new German Cabinet is in peril. This was true. It was also true that the Reichstag was in still greater peril. If the Ministry of that able Catholic statesman Dr. Briining had been beaten in some o f the excitingly narrow divisions which have taken place since it assumed the responsibility of government, there would have been nothing for President von Hindenburg to do save to govern by decree, thus adding Germany, for a short or a long spell, to the list of countries in which elective institutions have broken down. For the present, the new Cabinet is safe and Parliamentary government may continue. Nevertheless Germany’s economic problems remain both grave and complicated. We have been asked to say something about the direct attack on President von Hindenburg’s patriotism which was made a few days ago by one of the ex-Kaiser’s sons. The only comment that we have to make is that the speech, according to the information which lies before us, has done more good to the actual President than to the former Emperor.
