Persons Prove Their Faith By Deeds of Charity "You see, then, that it takes deeds as well as faith, if a man is to be justified." St. James .2:


Beloved in ChristJ Each year at this time, our Catholic Charities Appeal asks us to prove· what sort of faith we have. Our faith could be dead, for want of signs of life. It could be selfish, given to measure .goodness by what is done for us person­ ally. It could be complacent, living on memories of what we once did in :the past. Too bad for the twenty-nine agencies of Charity in the Fall River Diocese, if this were so. Too bad for those that wait for\'attention and care in our homes for the aged, the chronically-ill, our orphans, homeless, the retarded child or grown-up ;~too bad for all afflicted with physical or emotional problems who are helped by our welfare services;-too bad for all who need guidance in some form or other should the work of Catholic Charity falter or fail. We are blessed with our twenty-nine agencies. Hardly a diocese, or archdiocese in the country can compare with the number and variety of services that we afford. We can, indeed, count such blessings. But it would be pre­ sumptuous, not to say unchristian, to say: "We have done enough". In the first place whom do we mean by we? The sisters that staff. our charities? Certainly they are not ready to call it a day. Then, perhaps we mean those that suppm·t the charities. Is it the one who has given accord­ ing to his means, or the one who tries to get off as cheaply as possible, arguing that enough has been done? But who can possibly feel justified in the eyes of God,-not to say in the eyes of men,-if he has no deeds to prove how genuine his' faith is? It is one thing to count blessings. It is quite another to see that they benefit the greatest number possible. So we have to renew our appeal each year. We must man our agencies. In staffing them, such particularly as our Homes for Aged and Infirm, we have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in salaries alone. And each one of such services could and should grow. The poor and the sick, the distressed in mind and heart are always with us. This year, we plan the expansion of' Marian Manor in Taunton. Weare to provide a new home for Aged ahd Chronically III in North Attleboro. We have in mind 'expanding our work for exceptional children. These are firm intentions. But there is, an ever expanding need affecting aU our charitable activities. The demand is there to be met. It grows more and more insistent. The Charity ,of Christ urges us to do all we can. . THE EUCHARISTIC PRESENCE INDICATES THE TONE OF CASSIDY HIGH

So I urge you, my dearly beloved in Christ, to take up your fair share of the burden and 'help us carry on, and increase where necessary, the precious work t<> which we have set our hand and our heart.

Cooney of Hartford has told the legislative Committee on Public Health and 'Safety that the artificial birth eontrol issue involves questions of both morality and public policy. Connecticut's anti-birth con­ trollaw bans the practice of arti­ ~ial birth control and the dis­ tr:ibution of contraceptive de­ vices and information. Cooney said the three dioceses believe it "should not be neces­ sary and it may not be advis­ able" for the legislature to act OIl the repeal question while outcome of a. COUl'lt test of the law is still undecided. The Supreme Court of Errors, the state's highest court, has agreed to review the convictions of. two officials of the Planned Pa·renthood League of Connecti­ eut who were fined $100 for opening a planned parenthood clinic in New Haven in Novem­ ber 1961. The state anti-birth control Jaw has also been before the U.S. Supreme Court which refused in June 1961 to rule on the law's eonstitutionality on the grounds that it was not being enforced.

Principal sponsor is Rep. Betty Kirk West of Pueblo. She intro­ duced a similar bill two years ago, but it died in committee. In several parts of the state, private school pupils rode on . schools buses for many years up until November, 1961, when Bryon W.

Religion Leaders To Spur Action On Race Bids

Bishop ,Cassidy High The Dioces.e will be honored by the presence of the distinguished Cardinal Archbishop of New York at tomor­ row's dedication of Bishop Cassidy High School in Taunton. Diocese. ' Cardinal Spelln:ian's willingness to preside over the dedicatory exercises is his thoughtful tribute to the late Third Bishop of Fall River. The High School to be dedicated in Bishop Cassidy's, name is a fitting memorial to the love of youth that characteTized the prelate's life and stewardship over the , Bishop Cassidy demanded excellence-of l1imself and of, others. The Sisters of the Holy Union of the Sacred Hearts who staff the new school have made the same demand upon themselves and those under their charge. The Sisters, bring to the new facility not only this enthusiasm for excellence but the tr.aditions of St. Mary's High School. Bishop Cassidy High is blessed in being the :recipient of such a rich heritage. Many schools must create traditions and wait for the passage of time to hallow them. Bishop Cassidy High School opened its doors several months ag~ with the happy traditions and long memories of St. Mary's whose work it continues. The beginnings thus made by Bishop Cassidy High promise much for the future.

Full Response It is difficult to see how anyone can resist the call of

charity-the' call of Christ.

Perhaps the emphasis in this year's Catholic Charities

Appeal should be not on the call of Christ but on the full response that must be made to it. Too often people think of giving to charity as one action - a solicitor calls, a gift is given, Christ is served. They would do well to ask themselves if their gift can be expanded into a continuing 'One. The devoted workers-religious and lay--who staff the many ,agencies supported by the Appeal do not give once and stop. Their's isa continuous giving of themselves. And so the pledge system-by which a person gives. not once but in installments through the year-is .a constant giving" not of resouroes but of the spirit of sacrifice. U sing the pIedge .system ·a person -can enlarge his gift without hurting himself too much. And he keeps in mind, through the yeM, the call of Christ. It is a continuing call-asking a continuing answer,a full response.

The Swiss theologian-Fat'l1er 'Hans Kung---'has been lecturing extensively in this country. He has been widely quoted in the pr.ess because what he has to say, while not always new, he says with freshness of eXPl'ession that is enlightening and even, at times, daring. One' of Father Kun;g'.g themes is that of freedom. He

calls upon Catholics to be "not fear-ridden ,and insincere, inhibited and ossified, prim and plaintive, f'amvtical and filled with tresentment, but 'courageous and self-reliant, big in ideas and in hea.d., dy>namic and vital, open and joyful." This Christian freedom is 'the freedom 'of the Childl'enof God. Many press stories have stressed this freedom role of the Christian and l1ave caused some readers to be filled with apprenension.To do justice to Father Kung and his thesis, tme pI'essshould have quoted what he further says about this fmeedom :that he sees as a mark of the Christian: "More freedom in the Church means that the demand on the EASTER.

Most Americans Believe God Exists ;Survey Shows 87 Per Cent Certain W~STMINSTER

(N C) - A major survey of religious beliefs among adult Americans dis­ closes that 87 per cent are "ab­ solutely certain" that God exists. Only one' out of 20 of those wrveyed said that religion is "'not very important" in their lives, Father John L. Thomas, S.J.• reports in a; new book pub.­ lished here in Maryland. However, he concludes from bis study that tne relfgious be­ liefs of many Americans are "inImature" and "superficial." Father Thomas, a sociologist Itt St. Louis (Mo.) University and a columnist for The Anchor, Cliscusses the findings. of inter­ views conducted with 2,987 adult Americans on the. role played in their lives by religion. HiS' book, "Religion and the Amedcan People," is published by the Newman Press and priced' at $4.50.

Honors Priests HONOLULU (l.'OC)-.A\ resolu­ tion adopted by the Hawaii House of Representatives con­ gratulated two priests, honored by Pope John who named' them papal chamberlains with the title of Very Reverend Monsi­ gnor. The priests are Msgrs. Francis Marzen, editor of the Hawaii Catholic Herald, dioc­ esan newspaper, and Daniel Dever, superintendent of dioc­ esan, schools.

Father Thomas says the sur­ vey is "the first large-scale at­ tempt to measure quantitatively some of the religious beliefs, practices and attitudes of Amer­ ican adults." "One impression emerging clearly ...... is that religion still remains highly respectable and extremely popu~ar among all adult Americans. People feel that a man ought to have some religion," he says. Three out of four of those in­ terviewed considered: them­ selves "active membersf' of a

Roses Are Red, Violets B'lue, Now. the .Car Is Scarlet, Too .


. By Mary Tinley Daly The '''soft sell" has been going on at our house for months, we now realize. So soft and so un-selling has been the approach that until the final "hard sell" descended we scarcely realized the gentle but steady pressure that had been applied. To draw bug by this time. Ginny was a parallel: each evening right. during the Fall and Winter, However * * * "We'll probably the Head of the House and be trading it in anyway, Ginny.

I have' walked to the mailbox, shortcutting through the back yard, out the gate and down the all e y to the corner box. Through the accumu­ lated 1 e a v e s, t hr 0 ugh the snow, the yard never seemed to change much. But the n, w hen Spring came at last and the yard received its first manicuring of the season, there was a distinct path from the back door, diagonally across the yard to the gate. Straws in Wind Back to the "soft sell" that brought this simile to mind. We had noticed with outspoken ad­ miration Ginny's willingness, even eagerness, to keep our little compact car clean. With no particular urging, Saturday after Saturday would find her, barefooted in warm weather, booted in cold, d iIi g e n t 1 y scrubbing away' with brushes and detergents, hosing off the suds, wiping the little green bug dry and applying polish. "Doesn't take the shine she used to," Ginny would sigh. "No ,.matter how hard I rub. Isn't that just too bad?" Yes, we admitted more or less absentmindedly, it was too bad. However, not being status-con­ scious as far as a slick shine on a car was concerned, we sel­ dom gave it a second thought. Dull or shiny, just so the thing ran was all we cared about. . Other straws in the wind: "Look at that car that just passed us. No, not the black Chevy, the red VW. Same year as ours but it looks· new." And again, "Bright colored ears are so much safer. You can spot 'em in the rear view mir­ ror. Bet the people' riding in them even feel safer." Obtuse as we were, such re­ marks seldom even interrupted our train of thought as we rode along - mentally adding to the g·rocery list, planning the week's menus, wondering if we'd short­ ened the new dress too much. Last Saturday came the "hard sell" as Ginny finished her car laundering, emptied the bucket, shut off the hose, hung the cleaning rags up to dry. "It's worn off, worn off com­ pletely in spots," she; said in disgust. "And if you want your car to rust away, to deteriorate utterly, well don't pai~t it." We looked with new eyes a·t the green bug, the' spotty green

Subdued Shade "You'll never get what it's worth that way," insisted our teenager. "It's a mighty good little car, what with all the money you've spent on its in­ nards. Now if you just had a paint job, you'd be in business." Sounded logic<~l. While our heads were still nodding up and down Ginny whipped out a list of names, addresses and prices on paint jobs, estimates she had garnered at uptown, downtown and suburban garages. "This one looks O.K." we de­ cided. "And since you want red, perhaps a subdued shade, may­ be toward the maroon?" "With red 1 eat her uphol­ stery?" Our artist pressed her point. "Ought to be just a· little bit brighter than maroon, don't you think? They can have it done by tomorrow." That score settled, Ginny zipped off in the spotted green bug, returning home by bus. "You're really going to have a nice looking car," she assured us. "Want me to pick it up to­ morrow after school?" The pick up we thought we could do for ourselves, won­ dering vaguely just whose cal' this was becoming; We found out. "Here's your cur, Ma'am," as we' _id the bill. "Isn't she a honey? Your daughter sure knows how to pkk colors!" This? This was our car? This flaming miniature fire engine? All it lacked was a siren. Thoughts must have fJound expression in words.

Miami Policemen, Firem·en Form Guild M I A M I (NC) Catholic policemen and firemen, by rea­ son of their spiritual trust; are obligated more than the average laymen to set an example worthy of the authority given them, the chief United States marshal said here. James J. McShane spoke to charter members of the newly organized Diocese of Miami Guild of Police and Firemen during their first Communion breakfast, which followed Pon­ tifical Low Mass offered by Bishop Coleman F. Carroll of Miami in the cathedral. ''Our affiliation with law and government, as policemen and firemen, dedicated to the pres­ ervation of life, the law and private and public property, stanWl us in good stead as Catho­ lies in that our·public trust may • easily be tTanslated 10 our spiritual trust," the former New York police officer said.

'Primary Role of Students Is to Lea:rn' NOTRE DAME (NC) - The president of Notre Dame Uni­ versity .has made clear in a letter to its students the position of the university in the wake of a dispute between the ad­ ministration and former editors of the Scholastic, student pub­ lication. Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., says in the five-page letter that he does not "consider faculty and students equal part­ ners in the educative process." He specifically assesses the performance of the Scholastic under three student editors who left their posts on the Scholastic when the university deleted from the magazine's March 29 issue material it considered "of­ fensive." The deleted matter in­ cluded an article dealing with a student. senate recommendation for more liberal dormitory rules. 'Lack of Integrity' Father Hesburgh says in the letter that during the year "the Scholastic had moments of greatness and the promise of being the best, rather than a mixture of the best and the worst, ever," but "several ten­ dencies marred the greatness:' He says these. included: "An excessively negative atti­ tude that felt called upon to scorn everything under God and to 'pontificate far beyond the limits of its writers'. modest wisdom. . .

Leading Catholic and Protes­ tant churchmen will address the meeting, at which choirs from 18 churches will sing both Catholic .__ ._~.~'-- - - iW.Q_PJ:QJ;estant hymns. Plans for t.'1.€l- ~"thering; be­ lieved to be the first of its lima in the United States, were made public by Catholic Auxiliary Bishop Stephen A. Leven of San Antonio and Methodist Bishop Paul V. Galloway. The idea for the meeting originated' with Bishops Galloway and Leven. Episcopal Bishop Everett H. Jones will be chairman. Bishop Leven and Methodist Bishop Fred Pierce Corson of Philadel­ phia will be the principal speakers. Attending the first public planning meeting for the gather­ ing were clerical and lay repre­ sentatives of the Catholic, Meth­ odist, Episcopalian, PreSbyterian, Christian, Disciples of Christ, and Baptist Churches. Also on hand were San Antonio Mayor Walter McAllister and Chamber of Commerce president James M. Gaines.

Earl Dycus, Bishop Galloway and Bishop Corson, Bishop Leven and Msgr. Roy'Rihn, pas­ tor of St. Pius X parish here. Bishop Galloway, addressing the planning meeting, said the need for religious unity today is "based on our sharing a common enemy and on the fact that Christian witness is divided in its efforts." He said the gathering will not be "an effort to bring the vari­ ous Christian churches together." If it simply makes it possible to "know each other better," he said, it will have accomplished "a great deaL"

The clergymen's campaign was timed when hearings for repeal of the law were scheduled in two locations in the' county. Among the clergymen were 86 Protestant ministers, 34 Catholic priests and 12 rabbis.

The entire tone of the chern., istry tables and cabinets is of light wood, while the table tops and sinks are black soapstone. The student tables, capable of accommodating 40 students, are equipped with sinks, gas jets, electrical outlets and positive and negative terminals. There is also a completely equipped hood built in on one side oj' each table. A portable hood, which can be connected to exhaust pipes at the end of each lab table, supple­ ments the stationary hood. All types of apparatus and chemicals ,needed for experi­ ments are on hand.

Holy Union Sisters' Educa'ting Area Youth Since· 1886

'The Congregation of the H9ly Union of the Sacred Hearts was founded in 1826 by Monsignor l'Abbe Jean Baptiste Debrabant at Douai, in the .diocese of Cam­ brai, France. This worthy priest of great piety and profound' humility was chosen by Divine Providence to save- souls at a time when France was beginning to recover from the horrors of the great Revolution. In order to fight against the scourge of reli­ gious ignorance, he resolved to found a society devoted to the teaching of youth. Such was the beginning of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Union of the Sacred Hearts. Sustained by an un­ shaken faith, invincible confi. dence and' a zeal which was proof against the most trying conditions, the small group of three or four with whom the founder began his work have today produced an order which includes more than 2,000 mem­ bers in over 150 conve~ts and schools, teaching. some 1.00,000 children all over the world. On Oct. 19, 1886 the' wooden structure on the present site of . the Academy of the Sacred

Hearts in Fall River became the first convent home in America for these ~eligious, who enjoy a justly-famed reputation in the educational field. In a matter of years the nuns have spread through the Fall. River diocese and now teach at 13 schools and a Sisters' college. Mother Helena The group of ten chosen sis­ ters who left their homeland for the education of children in the United States included a dedi­ cated Religious whose name to this day, 26 years after her c;leath, is very much alive. The Reverend Mother Marie Helena, S.U.S.C., foundress and first Provincial superior of the North Amel'ican Province,' was fre­ quently the object ot'laudatory words from the lips of Bishop Cassidy. At the first graduation ex~r­ cises held at St. Mary's Parochial School, Taunton, in 1911 Father James Coyle, beloved pastor of the parish and staunch advocate of Catholic education, announced plans for the opening of St. Mary's High School, and in Sep­ tember of that year three classes on . the secondary· level were started. Accommodations weI' e in­ creased with" an addition to the grammar school, and a barn at the rear of the school was re­ modeled to provide an additional classroom and a science labora­ tory.

Father McGinley To Step Down

Can Live Together Professor Tells Catholic Men Integrity,

Business Success Are Compatible

ATLANTIC CITY (N C) Honesty and success are far from being the ham-and-eggs of the Industrial world, a specialist in business ethics asserted here. Herbert Johnston, University Df Notre Dame professor, told a lession of the National Council' Df Catholic Men convention here "it may be that, in this job or in that business, you simply cannot luccced and stay honest." Johnston, with Father Ray­ . mond Baumhart, S.J., of Loyola University, Chicago, and Henry Flannery of the AFL-CIO, Wash­ ington, D.C., discussed "Moral Problems in Business Practice" at the session. Combining integrity and busi­ ness success is not impossible, .1ohnston stressed. He added: "I know personally, and so do you, highly successful businessmen on whose absolute honesty we

would stake anything. It can be done, though perhaps not easily." Johnston said he placed "little confidence in elaborate codes of ethics that are framed, hung be­ hind the desk of the chairman of the board, and dusted off and trotted out to impress whatever shareholders turn out for the annual meeting." "If it doesn't have teeth in it, the code doesn't'mean anything," said Johnston, who 'is· author of a book on business ethics. "And even if it does havl~ teeth in it so far as this particular com­ pany goes, the company itself will probably suffer in competi­ tion with those rivals who do not bother about such niceties." Government Control Johnston said he was uncer­ tain whether any code of ethics could be made really effective for a whole industry or for a whole economy. "But what I do know is that it it cannot be, there will be more and more government control of the economy," he said. "'As one example, observe that neither management nor labor wants compulsory arbitration' to settle their wage and other disputes; but a continuation of th~ 'pres­ ent situation in collective bar­ gaining means that both will probably get it."

One is its demonstration of the impor­ tance of care­ fully ·screening candidates for the priesthood and preventing those with such eharac­ teristics and difficulties fro m entering it. The author was born in Al­ bany, N. Y., in 1908, of a mixed marriage. His mother and father separated when he was very young, came back together later. His mother was, to say the least, dominant in his early life, along with her five maiden sis­ ters, with whom the boy lived for a time and who expressed nothing but disgust for marriage. Secular Clergy 'Humdrum' At 17, he went to a Catholic University, as a lay student in the undergraduate department. He held himself aloof from com­ pany, took no part in the ~cial and athletic life 'of his contem­ poraries. He toyed with the no­ tion of joining the Benedictines, but the community at the uni­ versity gently diverted him. His mind now turned to the secular clergy,' which, he says, he despised as humdrum and mediocre. Why be one of them? Because they had no .vow of poverty, hence he would, 1£ nec­ essary, be able to contribute to the support of his mother. He insisted on being a priest of a diocese where he would be a total strager. The Bishop of Davenport accepted him after a brief interview in a New York hotel and sent him, for his sem­ mary course, to the North ~r­ k:an College in Rome. He lasted there a year.

Regrets Catholics' Attitude Toward Father Bouquillon By Most Rev. Robert J. Dwyer, D. D.

Bishop of R!lno


It was hi NO\rember, 1891, that the Reverend Thomas Bouquillon, .profes,Sor of Moral Theology at the young 'and struggling Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., published his 'now famous pamphlet on "Education, To Whom Does It Belong?" Bouquillon was a Belgian, a only should but indeed must exercise ~ts power to afford ·its Louv.aln scholar, at home subjects reasonable and equal with the democratic liberal­ educational opportunitIes.

ism which flourished in his na· tive land during the latter part of the 19th cen­ tury, compara­ tively unspoiled by the anti­ religious b i a s which vitiated so much of Con­ tinental liberal­ ism (l,uring that same period and long after So it seemed to him a fairly obvious thing to say that the state as an institution has a very positive stake in the edu­ cation of its citizens. In Belgium religious educa­ tion, practically synonymous with the Catholic schools, was on par with secular education, and received from the state-de­ pending somewhat on the min­ istry in office-at least the min­ imum for teaching and operation. Looking over the United States with fresh eyes, he saw no rea­ son why the same happy solu. tion could not be reached here. He wrote the pamphlet' as he later confessed, a bit hurriedly, and while he was careful to stress that the primary and ori­ ginal right in education rests with parenthood itself, and that religion has rights in the matter upon which the state cannot in justice infringe, he scanted the ~evelopment of these ideas in bis haste to emphasize the role of the state. Glorious Fracas His intention, manifestly, was to allay the suspicion that the Catholic Church claimed an alto­ gether exclusive power over, the education of her youth. The substance of Bouquillon's essay, as well as of his further elucidations in reply to his critics, is pretty much common­ place in Catholic educational thinking today, and has been so for a long time. Then, unfortunately, heated tempers and exacerbated person­ ality clashes magnified it into a glorious fracas, involving the Catholic and secular press, all the editors who felt called upon to "view with alarm" or to take up cudgels in defense, together r4ir' with the more vocal members of thf' hierarchy, who thus early gave the lie direct to the canard that American bishops are all bound to think alike on every subject under the sun. Referred to Rome So angry did the debate be­ come between those who saw eye to eye with Bouquillon tha,t the state does have some rights in the educational field and those who regarded such an ad­ mission as a Garrisonian "coven­ ant with death and an agree­ ment with hell", .that the ques­ tion ultimately was referred to the Holy See. There the matter was decently interred, and Bou­ quillon, unrebuked, continued his teaching.

But the intensity of the mood,

the representations and misrep­

resentations made to Rome on

this and kindred subjects of the

day no doubt played their part ill evoking the letter Testem Benevolentiae from Pope Leo XIII to Cardinal Gibbons, on .lan. 22, 1899. The letter, actually, had noth­ ing to say specifically concern­ ing the school controversy, but

offered much sound advice and

. a prudential warning against any incipent American form of ~ . Modernism. State Has Rights American Catholics have long

aareed publicly and privately,

that the stat" has definite rights in the field of education, and not

Parental authorit:ll' must never be minimized or thwarted, but neither should it be misused in such a way as to deny the boon of educa'tion to the young. The rights of religion, and sp~cifi­ cally of the Church, in the intel­ lectual and moral :formation of her children are not to be de­ nied, and from anyone point of view there ought to be no conflict between any or all of these interests and rights. Power of Taxation There is no question but that the decade of the '90s formed a watershed in American educa­ tional thinking and practice. It was then that the state, con. ceived solely as a secular insti­ tution pursuing strictly secular aims, launched a program of public education for the entire body of the nation's youth, using for the purpose its wellnigh lim. itless power of taxation. It was then that the decision was made, consciously or uncon­ sciously, for the state to move massively into a sphere which up to that time had largely been preempted by religion, Protes­ tant or Catholic.

It may not have been foreseen

that in time this massive invasion w 0 u 1 d practically amount to the exclusion of reli­ gion from competition in the field, but the point had actually been made. In the minds of a few key figures it was a delib. erate maneuver. Missed Significance So Father Bouquillon, his de­ fenders and his cri.tics, may, not have grasped,at the time the full significance of what was afoot, but their uneasiness, even the . very bitterness of their deba·te, might well indicate a sense of an impending conflict. True, the Catholic school pro. gram had already been launched by the Councils of Baltimore, es­ pecially those of 1866 and 1884, but it was hardly realized then how titanic the struggle would eventually become between reli. gion and secularism for control of the American mind. And it was even less clearly realized how potent a weapon secularism had appropriated when it assumed, almost with. out question, the power of taxa. tion as its unique prerogative. Lost by Default "The old, unhappy, far-off things, and battles long ago'" '" "'" But perhaps if more of his con­ temporaries in Catholic America had listened to Father Bouquil­ Ion with greater respect, and been less prone to denounce him as a foreign-born troublemaker, we might today be much farther ahead, in our contest with secu­ larism for the American soul. We might have understood the terms of the conflict more clear- ' ly. It might just be hinted that secularism, back in the '90's, won the first round of the fight almost by default.



Unilateral Action on Cuba Dangerous • Hemisphere Reds 'Mean to Stay' In MIAMI BEACH (NC) - A former Prime Minister of Peru warned here that unilateral ac­ tion by the U.S'~ or any other nation of the Americas in re­ gard to Cuba could aid Soviet designs . in the western hemi­ sphere. Pedro Beltran told. the 53I'd annual convention of the Catho­ lic Press Association that the communists "mean to stay" in the hemisphere, and he made a strong plea for American na­ tions to stand united against this common enemy. Beltran, Peru's Prime Minister and Minister. of Finance from 1959 to early 1962, was the main speaker at the convention ban­ quet. Now publisher and editor of La Prensa, a daily in Lima, Peru, Beltran said later in his speech that Catholic journalists are in a key position to help bring about inter-American un­ derstanding. He stressed first that Cuba is the nerve center of operations for communist subversion of Latin America, and that a base so useful to the Soviets "is not going to be easily relinquished." "To understand the real threat of Cuba," he continued, "the first thing to bear in mind '" '" '" is the fact that the communists are in the hemisphere and that they mean to stay." Beltran said that while people in North America look upon Cuba in the light of "immediate danger of acts of war," South Americans see the threat in a different light. 'Ideal Center' "We see Cuba," he said, "as an ideal center of operations for the subversion of Latin America, fal" handier and more effective

Security and Immortality

God Love You


By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D. D. Everyone is Iivin~ longer' in the United states today, and

with increased longevity comes the problem of security. It would

be very interesting to go back into the literature of the

nineteenth century to see how often the word "security" is

found. Very likely, wherever we find "security" today, we would

have found the word "immortality" then. In other words, "se­

curity" is the economic side of "~orlality."

This is precisely the way it appears in the Gospels. Our Lord told the story of the man who added bam to barn in order to give him that final security where he could say to himself: "Come, soul, thou hast goods laid up for many years to come; take thy rest now * * *" It was not eternal rest but temporal rest he sought, not immortality bu·t security, not merit but cash. And it was all thought of in terms of MY bams, MY harvest, MY goods - as if the Lord had given him nothing! Does this mean there Is no place for

security in our lives? Most certainly not.

The Scriptures condemn the ID&D who

makes no provision for the morrow. But

.security must never be purchased at the

cost of eternal salvation; there must be a

Grateful for Aid to Church, Divine Mission MIAMI BEACH (NC) - Pope John has expressed his "warm commendation and gratitude for the valuable service which the Catholic P.ress Association and its members are rendering to the Church and her divine mission." His praise is in a letter to the 500 delegates attending the convention here of the CPA ­ association of Catholic news papers, magazines and general publishers in the U.S. and Canada. The complete text of the letter follows: Your Excellency, the Sover­ eign Pontiff Pope John XXIII has graciously instructed me to convey his paternal greetings to the Catholic Press Association of the United States of America on the occasion· of its annual convention. In his discourses and messages His Holiness has repeatedly stressed the obligation of an n~wspapermen to dedicate their work to the cause of truth and justice, and he has frequently reminded representatives of the Catholic press that it is their duty to cooperate in every way in consolidating and spreading the Kingdom of Christ among men. The delegates attending the forthcoming annual conven­ tion of Catholic Press Associa­ tion of the United States will be familiar with those -exhorta­ tions of the Holy Father and of his predecessors in the pon­ tificate, and they will find there­

Prelate Says Encyclical Stresses Traditional S'ocial Theory By Msgr. George G. Higgins Director, NCWC Social Action Department

Pope John xxnrs new encyclical, "Pacem in Terris" fPeace on Earth), has received more favorable comment ill the American press than any other papal document in living memory. Laudatory columns and editorials on the encyclical have appeared in nition," Mr. Hughes pointed 'out. almost every major news­ "And a Catholic tradition paper and magazine in the stubbornly fighting ram pan t United States. Of those that nationalism, through those same


have come to our attention, Emmett Hughes' piece, "The Lively Papacy," (N e wsweek, Ap,ril 22) is one of the best. Iti addition to giving an ade­ quate summary of the contents of the encycli­ w, Mr. Hughes managed, with­ .. the limits of a v e r y brief column, to put the document into some kind of historical perspective. Whereas the writers of many of the other editorials and columns on the encyclical greeted it with a certain air of pleasant and grateful surprise - and even, in !lOme cases, of astonishment ­

Hughes saw it as another logical step forward in the orderly development of Catholic social and political thought. Catholic Traditi9D He was very much impressed, of course, by the "boldness" of the encyclical and by the ''vigor of its thrusts." But even the boldest of its pronouncements, he suggested, "may provoke more astonishment than they de­ serve. In a serious sense, four centuries of modern history stand behind them." "A Catholic tradition rarely distracted, over those centuries, by the premises - or the pro­ mises - of an unbridled 'free economy' can greet a new age, more alert to the commonweal, with a sigh of relief and recog-


centuries, can rejoice, too, in the reriewal of Europl:'s and the world's ancient quest for politi­ cal unity." Similar Essay Mr. Hughes' discerning an­ alysis of the new encyclical against the backg,round of tradi­ tional Catholic social theory brings to mind a similar essay on the same general subject by Reinhold 'N i e b u h r of Union Theological Seminary and Alan Heimert of HarvQl"d University. , In a recent book, "A Nation So Conceived," these two Prot­ estant scholars have analyzed Catholic lJOCial and political theory in much the same way as Hughes has done in his News­ week column. "Catholicism," they point .out,

"never doubts the social and communal substance of human existence." They illustrate this' conclu­ sion by citing the attitJ,lde of the Church with regard to exagger­ ated individualism in the eco­ nomic order and exaggerated nationalism in the political order. Catholic social theory, they indicate, has never been

Accordingly - as Hughes haa

pointed out in his Newsweek column - the pronouncements of the new encyclical on these two matters should not have come as a surprise.
