Sir.-The Catholic Church has a flag of its own-the Papal Flag -but how sorrowfully it is neglected, Only under very exceptional circumstances do we find it brought forth from its dusty cupboard and shown to the general public.
On the recent visit of His Excellency. The Apostolic Delegate, to Leeds an attempt was made to fly the Papal Flag from one of the two flagstaffs on Leeds Cathedral. The Flag, however. presented a poor spectacle, it was not very clean and was hung incorrectly insofar as it appeared to be flying at half-mast.
The Church of England leave us far behind in this respect. The Flag of St. George is prominently shown from their Churches on all great occasions.
The Papal Flag is one of which we should he proud, one of which should be owned by every Catholic Church in the land. and I should hate to hear the word " expense" issue from the mouth of any Parish Priest. The Flag should be flown on every important occasion, both spiritual and temporal, thus showing the loyalty of Catholics to His Holiness, the Church, the Queen and country.
