OLD AGE PENSION
At the rep-ular weeklv meetinir last
FrMav. members of the Rotarv Club
discussed the old pension bill that is
now creating much comment tnrougn
out the country. Several members
were heard from, each taking different
figures surrounding it, the living oxen,
sheep and asses that St. Francis had
grouped it all thi. struck such a
responsive chord in human hearts
that the custom thus born seems des
tined to endure a- long as Christmas
St- Francis, who never became a
priest because he considered himself
unworthy of the honor, acted as dea
con at the midnight .Mass ami de
livered a fervent Christmas sermon
at the greatness and mercy of Christ
whom he lovingly called the ."Child
of Bethlehem." A beautiful legend
is attached to this s.-ene. It relates
that St. Francis having sung the
words of the Gospel':' "and they laid
Him in a manger," knelt down tu
meditate on the mystery and there
appeared in his arms a child jsur-
I -rounded by a brilliant light.
The faithful eagerly seized upon
the pious custom of erecting 'crib and
the practice spreading rapidly to
neighboring localities, was soon
introduced into the monasteries and
Franciscan churches and propagated
in a special manner by St. Clara,
who established the devotion in all
the houses of the Poor Clares. These
were the beginnings and the devotion
to the crib has since spread through
out the whole Christian world. From
Christmas 'Eve until the octave day of
the ' Epiphany ' (January VMfi) the
crib is shown in ail Catholic churches
serving as a reminder of the mys
teries of the Incarnation and recall
ing the historical events connected
with the coming of Christ.

The representations of the crib today
are often very elaborate and beauti

Probably the most beautiful and
largest crib in the world is in the
old Franciscan church of Ara Coeli
in famous Santo Bambino, a figure
in Rome. This church possesses the
statue curved from wood, representing
the Infant Christ. This statue is cov
ered with gold and adorned with many
rich jewels. It is. said to have come
