Excerpt from St. John's University: Collegeville, Minnesota, a Sketch of Its History The following pages pretend to be nofmore than a sketch, in the form of annals, of the history of St. John's. As such it is merely a compilation of events that will serve as working material for the future historian. Most of the information was drawn from the annual catalogues, the first of which was published in 1870; from the files of newspapers, such as Der Wanderer, of St. Paul, and the St. Cloud Daily Times; from the St. J ohn's University Record, private diaries and personal recollections. If many of the happenings chronicled do not rise to the dignity of historical events, the writer's excuse is that he has addressed himself primarily to the alumni of the insti tution, to whom the daily doings of college life are as ia teresting as the larger facts of history. For this reason too the forms of annals was chosen as a dress for the narrative. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Priesthood and crisis are two words that appear to be very closely related. Or so it has seemed for the past thirty years and more. The crisis in the priestly ministry is constantly showing new sides, however-the issue of the priest's own self-understanding, for example, the interplay of the various different vocations within the Church, and the struggle, in the face of a plethora of different offices and ministries, to discern what constitutes the specific priestly dimension and identity. Again and again, in his theological writings, Hans Urs von Balthasar has addressed the fundamental issues of office and ministry, of priesthood and discipleship. He has uncovered the foundations from a biblical and theological historical perspective and has offered answers to the current problems of priestly existence. This book presents the confrontation with relevant trends, and at the same time the opposing current generated by von Balthasar, since he does not follow popular positions but instead gives us the very core of the Gospel and of revelation, like rye bread. In order to illuminate the spirituality and meaning of the life of the priest of today, von Balthasar goes back to the origins, to the apostles, to their calling, and above all to that moment from which their apostolic mission and their entire Christian existence originates, the Paschal mystery of Jesus. On the eve of his death, Jesus establishes the Eucharist and the priesthood; immediately after his Resurrection he bestows on the disciples the power to forgive sins, entrusts his sheep to Peter, and sends them out into the whole world. Thus von Balthasar considers the life and mission of today's priests in continuity not only with the first apostles, but above all, with Jesus himself. The person and mission of Jesus Christ stand at the center of priestly spirituality. Hence all the reflections in this work revolve unswervingly around Jesus Christ and his mission. Jesus is the source and norm of priestly existence. Only when God, made manifest in the figure of the Savior Jesus Christ, is understood as the center from which this priestly existence springs, and only when this enduring center is proclaimed, can the bold presumption of the Lord in entrusting his mission to weak men be understood in confident trust and attract new followers, even in lean times.

Professor Milward of Sophia University, Tokyo, asks, What are the features of the genius of Western civilization that have so influenced the course of human history? And in our age, where has the West gone wrong? This distinguished literary and cultural scholar, resident in the East for the last forty years, argues that tradition and nature are fundamental to the soul of the West, and that a renewal of appreciation for these is essential to our recovery.
