The article covers issues related to the Catholic Church as of August 21, 1926. A joint pastoral letter from the member of the Catholic hierarchy of Spain addressed immorality in public and private life, which include the proliferation of pornographic literature and public baths. French Jesuit martyrs James Salès and William Sautemouche were beatified at Rome, Italy in June. The celebration of the Twelfth of July in northern Ireland is said to have been accompanied by unwonted quietness.
