"My Dear Brother:
If you have been blessed with an usually good memory, you may vaguely remember that in the last Issue of these random notes I asked a question about the number of meetings which our brethren must attend in a given calendar year. Whether it was the almost universal interest in the question or whether the brethren were moved by the generosity of the Christmas spirit, the response to this request was astonishing. From East and West, from North and South, came postcards and letters telling a dismaying and frightening story. Apparently the number of meetings attended by our parish pastors is one of the very real handicaps under which the Church Militant labors in our hour in the history of mankind."
