Catholic Guild

Catholic Guild

The highlight of this year's programme for the Catholic Students' Guild was the visit to St. Mary's College Art Studio on Sunday, June 25. Members inspected some very fine examples of sacred art, which showed originality and modern ideas without departing from Christian teaching. Rev. Fr. B. F. Blake, S.M., gave a short talk on the principles of sacred art, followed by afternoon tea and then Benediction in the College chapel. The Guild is grateful to the Sisters for such an enjoyable afternoon.

Another interesting meeting was held on Sunday, July 11, when Mr. A. Dronke gave a talk on "Christian Youth in Europe." Mr. Dronke traced the growth of the Youth Movement from the beginning of this century and dealt particularly with the efforts made to bring about a return to the Liturgy.

Several members of the S.C.M. were visitors to the Guild, and Mrs. Potter, secretary of this organisation, gave a short talk on the activities of the movement and explained briefly its aims and objects.

On July 4. Messrs. S. Gilhooly and B. Healey led discussion on "The Authenticity of the Gospels," and showed [unclear: how] from both intrinsic and extrinsic evidence it could be shown that the Gospels were an authentic record.
