What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
MOUNT ST. CHARLES SCHOLASTIC. 0 Trent originated and fixed permanently in the mind and in the legislation of the universal Church the Diocesan College idea. On hearing of the establishment of the new College and of the happy choice of a patron, the Holy Father directed his Cardinal Secretary to write the following letter of approval: My Dear Lord Bishop: Dal Vaticano, Sept. 23, 1910. The Holy Father has heard with great satisfaction of your successful efforts in erecting a College and Preparatory Seminary, and it is with special benevolence that he regards your Lordship’s placing it under the patronage of the Great Arch bishop of Milan, St. Charles Borromeo. His Holiness expresses the fervent hope that, under such patronage, the College will become a center of learning and devotion. Moreover, the Holy Father most cordially bestows His Apostolic Benediction on your Lordship, on the priests and faithful of your Diocese, on the Faculty and pupils of the new College, and lastly on all those who co-operate with you in promoting the good of the College. Assuring your Lordship of my esteem, and wishing you every blessing, I am, My dear Lord Bishop, Yours very sincerely in J. C., R. C ardinal M erry del V a l . R t . R ev . J ohn P. C arroll , Bishop of Helena, Helena, Montana. On the occasion of his visit to Rome last year the Holy Father presented a beautiful photograph of himself to Bishop Carroll, writing beneath it with his own hand: Dilectis filiis Moderatoribus, Professoribus et Alumnis in Seminario Episcopali Helenensi Divo Carolo Borromeo dicato caelestium bonorum auspicem et benevo- lentiae nostrae testem Apostolicam Benedictionem ex animo impertimus.

The course of study embraces all the branchés of a commercial, English, scientific, classical and philosophical education. It will not only give the student the preparatory training for the priesthood, but will fit him for a professional, business or agricultural career. Besides the High School and College courses, there is a preparatory department for boys who have not yet finished the grades and who wish to prepare themselves for high school and college work. Our Course of Studies could receive no higher commendation than the fol lowing from the gifted pen of the editor of The New World of Chicago:
