Father Edward Flannery, for­ mer editor of the Providence Visitor and now a member of the Seton Hall University Insti­ tute for Judaeo - Christian Studies, spoke on the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on Non Christian Religions. ''The declaration," he said, "puts aright the mistakes and injustices of some 2,000 years' standing. In brief but crystal­ clear words a program is set up for bringing about the harmo­ nious relations that should exist between the two faiths (Chris­ tianity ard Juda~sm)." The early' Church, he noted, was a Jewish church, and the modern Church must now be taught this again 'and recognize "the bond that spirituality ties the people of the New Covenant to Abraham's stock." , "To do this," he said, -!!all of our media of communication in the Church must be employed­ the pulpit, tp.e press, the school­ room." Scholarly studies must be undertaken, texthooks must be examined, stereotypes and false images must' be identified and rooted out and social-political tensions must be explored, said Father, Flannery.

WASHINGTON (NC) Catholics lead the country in church attendance, with Lu­ therans heading the list of

Protestant church-goers, accord­ ing to the 1966 Gallup Poll audit on church attendance. ' Forty-four per cent of the na­ tion's adults attended church in a typical week this year, the same proportion as in 1965. The figure indicates a halt in the 10­ year decline in church attend­ ance reported in Gallup Poll audits from 1955 to 1965. In 1940, only 37 per cent of the nation's adults went to church during the period surveyed. By 1955 the proportion had climbed to 55 per cent. Since that year, the percentage of church-goers has been steadily declining. The The 1966 survey results mark the first deviation from the pat­ tern of decline. 49 Million Attend Gallup Poll has conducted an. audit of church attendance every year since 1955. The 1966 audit involved surveys, of representa­ tive samples of the adult popu­ lation made in eight selected weeks during the year. Over 12,000 persons were asked: "Did you, yourself, happen to' attend church in the last seven days?"

Need of Church 'True' Laymen' MEXICO CITY (NC) - The Church today needs- "true lay­ men," a prominent Mexican Catholic lay leader said here. Jose Alvarez Icaza, president of the National Center of Social Communication and of the Latin American Secretariat of the Christian Family Movement, said that the "true layman" is not one who is glamorized, passive, do­ mesticated, or incapable of caus­ ing 'problems.''' He added that laymen might act "imprudently" at times, but that "the worst imprudence would be fpr the Church and the world to become dissociated. Alvarez Icaza is one of the laymen named by Pope Paul VI to membership on the newly established Cowlcil for the Laity. He and' his wife, Mrs. Luz Maria Longorio de Alvarez Icaza, served as lay auditors at the Second Vatican Council. Alvarez Icaza said it was nec­ essary for organizations engaged in thc work of the apostolate "to serve the people without consid­ ering themselves a special group above the rest." He said that in apostolic ac­ tivities "we must realize that, voluntarily or otherwise, we must dispossess ourselves of superfluous comforts, or those Who lack the bare necessities of life will come to tear them away from us, because social insensi­ tivity among the well-to-de classes, their blindness, their timidity and fumbling at solu­ tions, are becoming more serious every day."

It is no mistake to say that in many ways Commu­ nism in Russia has been changing. In the ecpnomic field it is even borrowing incentive ideas from capitalism. In the fields of politics it is a far cry from the rule by the proletariat so much talked about in earlier days.. ~uri~g this era of change and evolution it is well for ChrIstIamty and the West to have as many contacts with the Soviets as possible in the hope tha,! many subtle influences might thus be exerted.

at Vatican City' with the party, was unable to attend because of illness. Before . President Podgorny left the library, he presented the others who had accompanied him and Pope' Paul spoke, according to the Vatican 'communique, "of his special esteem and his lively affection for 'the great Russian people." He also presented President Podgorny with a reproduction of the monumental work "Codice Atlantico" of Leonardo da Vinci. This consists of a col­ lection of 1,750 writings and various drawings of the Renaissance genius, It gets its name Atlantico fi-om the vastness of its size-about a foot and a half ' long and almost afoot wide with 804 pages~and from the vastness of the material contained. After leaving Pope Paul, President Podgorny and his suite toured various papal halls, the Borgia and Raphael rooms with their famous frescoes and the Sistine Chapel. In this great chapel, the direc, tor ·of the Vatican museums, Deoclecio Redig de Campos, explained the triumph of Michel-, angelo's frescoes. At one point he told President Podgorny the story that Michelangelo grew angry at a papal official, Msgr. Martinelli, who complained that the artist's work was too advanced. Michelangelo took revenge by painting Martinelli in hell with donkey's ears. c When the outraged prelate complained to Pope Julius II, the Pope ·said he was sorry, there was nothing he could do about it since the artist had put him in hell rather than in purgatory. This obviously' amused the Soviet official. President Podgorny, like any other visitor to the Vatican museums, also stopped to view the famous statues of the Appollo Belvedere and Laocoon. He also went outside of the scheduled tour by asking to visit the Vatican picture galler)<- so that he 'could see its·' famous Raphael paintings. The party then drove through the Vatican gardens and to St. Peter's, where the~r were met by 'Paolo Cardinal Marella, archpriest of the basilica, who gave him two. volumes of the official reports on the excava­ tions under St. Peter's. The ba­ silica's top engineer, Francesco Vacchini, gave President Pod­ gorny a tour of the basilica, with special stops at the Pieta, the' statue. of St. Peter and a visit down in th~,.~nfessional area beneMh the' 'main altar.

S. Bishops Committee' on Latin America. "We are happy to report sub­ stantial progress to Your Holi­ ness," Archbishop McGucken ·wrote to the Pope. "The most reverend Ordinaries of the dio­ ceses of the United States" as well as the major sbperiors of the religious communities recog­ nize the gravity of the responsi­ , bility placed on them to answer this extraordi'nary call.~ • In his report, 'compiled by the Latin America Bureau of .the National Conference of Catholie' .Bishops, Archbishop ,McGucken also pointed out that the 5,116 Church workers in Latin Amer­ ica comprise more than 50 per cent of the total 9,500 United States Catholics working for the Church outside the' country. The total Latin American fig­ ure includes 2,090 priests and Brothers representing 118 com­ munities of men; 254 diocesan priests from 67 dioceses; 2,416 nuns from 404 communities of women; and 356 lay volunteers recruited by P AVLA and other organizations. "It is notable," Archbishop McGucken told the Pope, "that this growing movement to serve the Church does not represent the assignment of superfluous personnel. No such superfluity exists. It represents, rather an admirable readiness to sacrifice for ,the larger needs of the Church."

Suggests 'F ront Door' Welcome For Federal Aid to Education

, 'MINNEAPOLIS (NC)'- Fed­ eool aid should be welcomed "through the front door of the house of education" and not by back door approaches, Msgr.. Terrence J. Murphy, president of the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul, said here. . . Speaking at commencement exercises at the University of Minnesota, Fat her Murphy asked: "Can we not frankly recognize -that -the national government, as the instrument of all the peo­ ple, has a legitimate role in .providing better education? In­ stead of a back door approach, can we not candidly welcome national programs through the . front door of the house of edu­ cation?" Msgr. Murphy dismissed fear of "restrictive federal controls," asserting "that there is sufficient

"Surely," he continued, "our economy is a national one that transcends city and state bound­ aries. Surely our national des­ tiny is tied directly to education. Only in the last few years have we come to draw the logical cor­ ollary of this fact of iife, name­ ly, federal support for education at all levels."

By Mary Tinley Daly One of the older grandchildren, imbued with the missionary spirit plus her father's innate talent for sales­ manship, called for a formal appointment with us for an CUjnterview."· "You'll find out what it's all about when I get' there, Grandma," sIh.e prom­ Matter of fact, we were glad ised.

She nudge in the literary depart­ arrived on the dot af two, ment, for our magazine subscrip':' oomplete with props, and after

a few pleasantries OIi>ened up :with the pitch: "At our school we're trying to I'lee that people get good maga­ zines to' read. Now, you would 1Iot want to take Playpoy, would you, Grandma?" No, we assured her, Playboy really bolds nothing I)f interest for us, not at our stage of life. Teasingly, we asked was she trying to push Esquire in its stead-a magazine, we mentioned in passing, for which h<~r grand­ father had written. "Well, I don't know much about that, but if Grandpa wrote for it I guess it must be O.K. What I really had in mind," she went on earnestly, "is to see if you Grandpa would like tel take "sQme Catholic magazines. We've got plenty on the list and our school gets a commission on everything we sell, Catholic and non-Catholic. I mean, Catholic and all the others." Young Saleswoman She· opened her little blue plastic briefcase and brought out the catalogue of offerings, quite II formidable list. As we sat on the couch together, we' went down one colum'n after another._ "We're not supposed to 'pres­ IlUre' anybody," she said, "not even our folks, but if you'iI tell me the ones you think you'd like', I'll read· you a description of them and tell you the prices, so's you won't have to put on your Blasses. Also," here was the salesman again, "the longer you take 'em for, the more money you save. Like, if you subscribe for three years you save more than if you' took 'em, for one, and lots more than if you bought them from a newsstand." This was not exactly news, but II point well worth malting for any able salesperson. So we studied the list and gave' our order, an order slightly larger than would have been tendered a door-to-doo}' saies­ man, and received a businesslike receipt. "Now, if they don't start com­ ing, Graridma, just call me up. Business is business, YOUl know! And.thank you very muc:h." ,

tions had been rnnning out and we'd simply n~glected to renew them.. We were also surprised at the number and the quality of the sample magazines our granddaughter showed us. Authoritative Press Would that we could subscribe to all those we found fascinating. That' being impossible, at least we can keep up with, them through our own parish library which keeps current and past numbers of these magazines and many more. Perhaps your par­ ish 'library is similarly well equipped, or your public library. Nowadays, with renewed in­ terest in the Church and all that pertains to it and the more in­ tensive coverage of the subject in the secular press, we are for­ , tunate in having an authoritative Catholic press--backbone of all, Diocesan weeklies--as well as all sorts of magazines handling a variety of factual information, feature material and editorial comment. A browse-in at libraries where such materials are available is an eye-opener and a mind­ opener for those who have not kept au courant with the Cath­ olic press as it exists in this Year of Our Lord 1967.

She forecast, that in a short time there would be no seasonal clothes, that light weight fabrics and pale shades w.ould be worn ye~r round. This would certainly solve the storage problem that so many of us have with seasonal clothes. In her classes, which began as a hobb J and have turned into a 13 hour a day job, there is an atmosphere of fashion aware­ ness. Such names as Cardin, Galanes, and Ricci crop up con­ stantly in a student's conversa­ tion, and the patterns of such Parisian designers are tackled with confidence under the expert hand of Mrs. Farrington. Her students are always aware of the shape of things to come as her monthly trips to New York keep her np on the very latest fash­ ions. long before they are seen in area stores. ' "The shape for' this coming Spring," said Mrs. Farrington, "is for a softer silhouette, with more and more of a fitted line and a sense of motion in the skirt. This trend toward a skirt that moves will make it easier for a woman to ,Sit down grace­ fully, even though her hemline is above her knees.

Among this Vogueish sewing teacher's future plans is the opening of a custom design salon where a woman can have an out­ fit created exclusively for ,her. Mrs. Farrington feels that there are ,enough fashion-corlscious women in the area to warrant this type of shop and in my per­ sonal ,opinion if anyone can carry, such a venture off with exactly the right touch, svhe can.

States." In 1964, he was elected to the executive board of Serra Inter­ national, charged with the re­ sponsibility of supervising Serra "in all of South America. Now I am covering the world." He pauses lor a minute, pon­ dering the next step. "There still are no Serra chibs on the moon yet." As a man on the go, Jan Ber­ bers describes his main purpose as "studying Serra Clubs, how they are working, how they are performing." In the process, he is delivering "interchanges of information" about how clubs in the various parts of the world function. "I am trying to sell our or­ ganization the idea that work n,lust go into this," he says. "Fos­ tering vocations must be done by external activities as well as prayers." Growth of Serra

After seven years of e;fforts in South America, he feels Serra has proved its value. "We are seeing an increase of vocations. We can't prove it's a result of

our work, but vocations are growing."

However, Jan Berbers feels that fostel'ing a vocation is not enough. "We are not only fishing 'for new vocatio'ns, but maintain­ ing old' ones. Our job is to help the church in all priestly fields:" -,' Some clubs specialize in visit­ ing seminaries, in keeping 'close contacts with new young priests, in conducting vocat.ional orienta­ tion sessions for young peoplee:­ "Where we must point· out all vocations, not just religious oli.es, ancj let them make their choice freely" - in conducting. parish programs, where Serrans speak to adult groups. "Mol'e than ever' today young­ sters are r'eceiving impl'essions from all sides-too little about vocations. W" must point out to them the man)' ways of life that will lead t.o God." "Explain from experience to teen-age boys what is necessary to be a good Catholic doctor, a good Ccltholic lawyer-a good priest." He has discovered in his travels that the "new church" is a church ;'1 mot.ion. "There are the oldel' ones who don't under­ stand about the new church.

There' are some young priests with too much impatience." Asked how the effects of Vat­ ican II are being received by peoples in parts of the world he has already' visited, Mr. Berbers shrugs his shoulders: "About half and half. Half who miss the old, half who can't wait for the new." Asked about recently publi­ cized accounts of the "lack of need" for missionaries and mis­ sion funds in South America, Mr. Berbers shakes his head. "1 disagree," he said. "South America needs priests and money more than ever. That is neces­ sary. But programs should be well studied. and prudently man­ aged." He points out that in Latin America, "where there are 210,000,000 Catholics, there are only 38,000 priests. Compare that with one priest for every 750 Catholics in the United States. Half of the priests in Latin America, he says, are mission­ aries from the United States and Europe, the other half are native priests. New I;iturgy

The "new litur'gy" has been "very profitable" in South America, he feels. "People are participating more than before, which is important in a country , t hat doesn't have enough priests:" He says, though, asked abput "too ,rapid 'progr'ess" that has -embroiled some Dutch priests'in controversy, "In Holland, a few priests are going too far. They are doing things not yet pet'­ mitted-and we have to mainta'in always discipline in the church." One of the problems of the rap'id swing t.o "newness" in Holla'nd, he feels, is that in his nativecountJ'y, "People are very religious minded. Families c.is­ cuss these things, and some a-e too progressive.

"This will level off, though." Right now, he feels, "we neC(lJl silence more th.an ever to s~ whether we are fulfilling th~ role God has for· us in this time of history." When his long trip is OVCIi', Mr. Berbers admits, "it will, be good to be home again and sfin down by the fireplace in quiev' n am longing to be quiet now." Besides, Mr. Berbers has fl home project to continue. W<Jiting for him in Mnntivideo are two sons, Paul, 16, anllll Thomas, 13, both students at n Catholic high school opel':Jted by the Marist Brothers. Are both his sons considei'ing the priesthood? "No," he replies emphatically. Then he cocks his head: "Bwfi perhaps one!"

, ~,¥NDHURST (NC) ­ The Vatican instruotion cur­ tailing experimental Mass rites is not intend~d to pro­ hibit the celebration of Masses in private' homes, according to the official who made the instruction known. Father Annibale Bugninl, sec­ retary of Consilium, the Vat­ ican's post-conciliar commission on the liturgy, made that clarifi­ cation in a letter to Msgr. Henry G. J. Beck, noted ecumenist and pastor of Sacred Heart parish here in New Jersey. Msgr. Beck, who has said Mass in the homes of parishioners on about six occasions with the ap­ proval of Archbishop Thomas A. Boland of Newark, had asked for the clarification in a letter to Father Bugnini. lDompetent Authority Father Bugnini replied that "given the required order and preparation, and with the neces­ sary authorization from the com­ putent authority, there is a great deal that can be done. "It was the arbitrary experi­ ments outside of these limits that have been condemned. That was all. Do not be afraid that we are trying to close all the doors-what we are working for is a living liturgy, which is both serious and beautifuL" Msgr: Beck said he has sent Q copy of the letter to Archbishop Paul J. Hallinan of Atlanta, chairman of the U. S. Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy, be­ cause of the confusion caused by the Consilium instruction. l[)Jear!y Defined' The instruction, dated Dec. 29, 1966, and published Jan. 4, con­ demned " 'family Eucharistic banquets' celebrated in private homes and followed by a meal, and Masses offered using strange and arbitrary rites, vestments and formulas Q Q 0" It also stated that "It must moreover be remembered that it is not lawful to celebrate Mass in private homes, except in those cases foreseen and clearly de­ fined by the liturgical legisla­ tion." Publication of the document led some bishops to withdraw permission they had given for such Masses. Father Bugnini, in his letter to Msgr. Beck, said the instruction will be explained further in the February issue of the Consil­ ium's publication.

parochial school sit u a t i 0 Ii through a survey prepared by the Catholic School Board. The 10-question survey was distributed at all parishes in the area. It asks laymen for their opinions on dropping grades, raising teacher requirements and adopting assessment plans to raise teacher salaries. One question asks: Are sep­ arate Catholic schools and col­ leges really needed? Another proposes a .family payment of $20 per month pel' child to cover education costs. Five Proposals The last survey question lists five proposals and calls for pro and con opinions on them. They include: Consolidating several adjoin­ Ing parishes to set up one good elementary school in the area. Having wealthier parishes help poorer parishes finance their elementary schools'. , Having each parish send a fixed percentage of income to a central school equalization fund, for distribution on an "as need­ ed" basis. Possible droppi.ng of the Cath­ olic school system if there are 70 per cent lay teachers in the system by 1970. Establishing a three - year training scholarship program for lay teachers.

Priest S t res s e 5 Changing Nature. Of Communism

TH'E 'ANCHOR-

Thurs., Feb. 2,

WOnrtl@O'i)°S ~~!UHi1tn Fight~ (C@O'i)Cer

WASHINGTON (NC) ­ Asserting that dialogue with Marxists is "both possible and feasjble," a priest warned here that "the Church of Christ should not close this

door."

.-;.,;

€ o mmunist w r i t e r shave praised Pope Paul VI's efforts for peace and have taken II positive view of much of Vatican Council II, Father John F. Cro­ nin, 5.5., assistant director, So­ cial Action Department, United States Catholic Conference, said here. . The priest addressed the Con­ ference on the Changing Nature of Communism lilt St. Albans .Episcopal church. The confer­ ence was sponsored by the Methodist Board of Social Con­ cerns, the National Prebyterian Center, the Episcopal National Cathedral and 1lJ. S. Bishops' Commission on Ecumenical Af­ fairs. Father Cronin spoke on the role of the Church in commu-' nism's changing nature. 'll'llJree IDirectives

"When the Church confronts present-day communism, it has at its disposal three recent policy directives,'" the priest stated. The first of these is an opening created by Pope John XXIII in his Encyclocal, Pacem in· Terris. "Here the Pope mai{es the fa­ mous distinction between false and unchanging principles, and movements and organizations which a're subject to change." The second source of guidance is found in Pope Paul's encycli­ cal Ecclesiam Suam, Father Cro­ nin continued. The priest said that this document maintained the opening made by Pope John and called for an honest and, open dialogue with unbelievers, not excluding communists. "This opening was further en­ larged by Vatican Council II, in its pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World. The council confrollted atheism more in the spirit of sorrow than of condemnation. It also extend­ ed the invitation to dialogue," the priest said. Father Cronin maintained that the very' natuI'e of the Marxist system makes it open to dialogue. This is because the Marxist­ Lenin philosophy contains two primary elements, he explained. Tremendous Turmoil "It is both a condemnation of capitalist exploitation and a system for revolutionary seizure of power. It is not, and this is most important, a methodical scheme for exercising power or ordel"ing economic life," the priest declared. "From this it follows that thc experience of guiding nations according to Marxist-Leninst principles inevitably will show the weakness and deficiences of the system," Father Cronin said. "This is quite evidentJI'om the tremendous turmoil now prevail­ .ing in most of the communist world. Questions are being asked and basic assumptions are being questioned." . "One must not exaggerate the extent or depth of these changes, yet it is safe to say that the- door to dialogue is at least slightly open," Father Cronin said. "The Church of Christ should not close this door."

Henry G. ;T. Beck, Church histo­ rian and a member of one of the U. S. bishops' subcommissions for talks with Protestant denom­ inations. Most of the time, Msgr. Beck said, community action programs are pure sociology. "We should be doing these things because Christ told us to do them. This, not the fact that we all live in the same town, should be the reason behind these actions," he said. The pastor of Sacred Heart parish 'in this New Jersey com­ munity believes that what is necessary is "real theology ­ building the kingdom of God." And the place for this theol­ ogy, he added, is in local clergy associations, which more and more priests are joining. "Here the clergy can sit down and find the theological basis for their common ~ction, and ex:­ plain it to their congregations." he said in a~ interview. 'Afraid of Theology' "They must bring the layman.' in on the theology of ecumen­ ism," he added, "or he will be unprepared for developments at the top." Right now, he continued, the layman "is afraid of theology. H:e doesn't feel qualified to con­ sider the theology of ecumenism, and so he ignores it when he gets together with members of other churches." ' Msgr. Beck also feels there is a need for leadership on the dio­ cesan level. "Too often," he said, "the local pastor won't take any action unless he is given strong leadership by the chancery. "He 'may even want to, but unless he has the leadership he may not know what to do, when to do it or how to do it. So he plays safe and does nothing."
