Proof of Good Will.
"There Is no country In the world so
free from the taint of modernism aa
America, and none possessing Catholics
more devoted to the Holy Father." de
clared Rev. E. V. O'Hara In his sermon
last night at St. Mary's Catholic. Ca

new American cardinals appointed by
the Pope, and of their office and work
He said. In part:
"The reported creation of thre new
American cardinals has served to di
rect attention to that great body of
counselors of the Pope and likewise
has indicated the harmony of the
church In America with the Ideals of
tho Holy Father. The College of Car
dinals has grown from the practical
necessities of th administrative life
of the church. It had Its origin In the
early centuries In the body of prin
cipal clergy who wer closely asso
ciated with th Pop In tha charitable
and admlnlstratlv work of th City
of Rome. For many centuries the num
ber of cardinals has been fixed at
about 70, though ther has seldom been
that number at one time.
"Vpon th death of a Pope It develops
upon the cardinals to select his suc
cessor. The manner In which they
hav fulfilled thla obligation haa en
titled thorn to ba recognised as th
most notable electoral body In the
world. Notwithstanding th political
Intrigues of European governments,
they have selected a singularly high
minded and Independent series of sov
ereign pontiffs. In this regard no bet
ter example Is needed than the present
occupant of th Se of Peter, whose
first act was to declar that hereafter

any cardinal to represent the wishes

and are chosen as representatives of

special regard to their practical wis
dom and their scholarship.
"The fact that four American citizen!
