In the news-sheet of the Belgian section of the J.O.C. in Britain a good story of Canon Cardijn is told. When croups of various J.O.C. groups, BeIgian, French, Swiss and British. were discussing in Paris the programme of the international celebrations to take place in Rome, an air-raid siren, practising for the grim business of war, was heard. After the excitement Canon Cardijn was heard to say : " Gentlemen, that was yet another sign of the barbarism which is threatening us—another reason to intensify the work of the J.O.C."
