M HE SEAL of Mount St. Mary's College, designed by Baker of London, contains 
a circular shield about which is the name of the college and the date of its found- 
ing, 1925. The circle has four divisions. At the bottom center an open book is 
inscribed with the college motto — Deus llluminatio Mea — God My Light. At the 
upper left three angel wings signify the city of Los Angeles. The fleur de lis of 
France at the upper right represents the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet who 
were established in France in 1650. At the upper center a lily surrounded by thorns 
stands for Mary, Mother of Sorrows. The seal beautifully symbolizes Mount St. 
Mary's College, founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in the city of 
the angels.

My Dear Girls, 

When you entered Mount St. Mary's College four 
years ago, you read on the first page of your college 
bulletin: The purpose of the foundation of Mount St. 
Mary's College is to offer to young women an oppor- 
tunity of receiving a liberal education in an environ- 
ment conducive to the development of sound Chris- 
tian principles. 

You did not, at that time, dwell too seriously on the 
real meaning of that paragraph. Freshmen never do. 
But during your precious years of study you have 
developed a background of knowledge and of values 
which have given you a sense of perspective, and 
you now look on Mount St. Mary's as a symbol of 
the highest and best in culture and sanctity which 
makes for that complete education spoken of by His 
Holiness, Pope Pius XI, in his Encyclical on Christian 
Education. 

There is a great difference between knowing 
truths and living them, my dear Seniors, and so, I 
repeat in this written message what I have so often 
given you verbally. This philosophy of yours is not 
a decoration — it is a weapon. Use this weapon to 
combat the spiritual problems of the day. All your 
faculties, all your tendencies — even your passions — 
can be developed along the grooves of Christian per- 
fection. The world's greatest need today is holiness. 
Choose your pattern among the saintly women of 
history — a Theresa, a Catherine of Siena, a Joan of 
Arc, or a Little Flower, if you please, but be a saint, 
each one of you. God love you, every one. This is the 
daily prayer of 



Your devoted 



■lister

¥ JOIN with the Senior Students of Mount St. Mary's, in paying tribute to Mother 
Marie de Lourdes, C. S. J., and in acknowledging the splendid service she has rendered as 
President of the College. 



As your third issue of THE MOUNT coincides with the Centennial of California, we 
rejoice in the heritage conveyed to our State through the efforts of the Franciscan Mission- 
aries. They planted well in the soil of California the spirit of faith which has been constantly 
watered by the devotion of loyal and devoted followers of Junipero Serra. 

May God in His mercy bless both the land of our State and its population.

California, 

you are a church, 

adobed once, rebuilt with gold 

on dusty graves, 

fertile with the faith 

of Spanish monks and Indian 

races — 
graves catacombed beneath the 

cities — 
each a kneeling place 
upon your soil. 

Your pillars are 

the curving cedars from the 
south, 

Redwood pines, and pale- 
scarfed firs. 

Your carpet-moss is yearly 
plushed. 

Your windows are stained-glass 

of thin clouds filtered through 

with sun. 



The hill-sides are 

your altars banked with 

flowers — 
Buck-brush Holly, Owl-faced 

Clover, 
Azaleas, Asters from Sequoia, 
Lupine bluer than Brodiaea, 
chaliced Poppies flattered 
by the lighted tapers 
of the Yucca. 



The landscapes are 

your panels, symbol-filled 

and laid with pious folded 

Palms, 
with olive boughs and wind-shy 

corn 
that tans beside the 
gold-gowned orange, 
fat-throated doves, 
the locusts and wild honey. 

Swing the incense, Wind, 

from your flower-filled censer. 

The sacrifice is ready! 

Let high-priests come 

with purpled wines 

from grape-vine meshes, 

with sun-flushed plums and 
apricots, 

brush-brown fowls and muff- 
clad sheep, 

cotton smoothed to altar laces. 

Bleach wind-cleaned wheat 

for breaded hosts. 

We take of your Communion.

The senior class of Mount St. Mary's College has chosen 
the California Centennial as its theme for the 1949 issue 
of The Mount. 

"California," a poem by Margaret O'Connell Knoell, 
'41, will carry the theme verbally while drawings by 
Katherine Williams, '49, will illustrate lines from the poem 
which localize the theme at the Mount.

^Jo the kj retaliates of 1949 



Your college days here at Mount St. Mary's will soon 
come to an end. For four years you have been preparing 
yourselves to take your places in a world that needs Christian 
guidance and Christian leadership. The Church should be 
able to count on you to lead in the formation of public 
opinion and to withstand the prevalent spirit of secularism. 

You are to be the spiritual, the social, and the educational 
leaders in this confused and confusing world. You are to be 
its teachers, its religious, its mothers, and its professional 
and business workers. The future of Catholic education is in 
your hands and in the hands of your fellow Catholic colleg- 
ians throughout the country. You must comprehend and 
support legislation that will insure the continuance of our 
system of schools. You must provide the teachers that are to 
staff these schools and you must provide the students who 
are to be educated. 






Great are the responsibilities that are yours but glorious 
are your opportunities. What you stand for as Catholics, and 
what you should strive to accomplish, the world needs. You 
have the truth — the eternal truth — and this truth should 
light your way in search for all other truths. 

We are confident that each one of you will accept the 
challenge that is presented to you. We shall be with you in 
spirit in your future efforts — in your successes and in your 
failures. We bid you a prayerful farewell. May our Lady 
whose children you are in a very special way guide and 
protect you and may her Son under whose leadership you 
go forth find you ever loyal to Him and to His Church. 

SISTER ROSE de LIMA.
