has been chosen for the groper cele

the Catholic world. At that period a
num ber of hlsarchs attacked the dog

therefore determ ined to institute a
special feast which should at the
sam e tim e be a protestation in favor
of the unwavering faith of the Church
and an honorable reparation for ths
blasphemies of impious men. The
Church desires on this day to avow
her love and gratitude to Our Lorn,
while she publishes a solemn act Of
faith In the Holy Eucharist. The Sac
