By REV• ROBERT W. HOVDA, Catholie University : , TODAY-St. Antonine. BishOP. Confessor. Part of the message of the picture of the Saviour as watchful and attentive and personally-interested Shepherd is also the message of today's Gospel parable. Each of us is different. yet this variety hasn't got out of the control of loving Providence". Faithfulness .to His claim is not in wishing we had the "talents" or gifts 'of another, but rather in accepting ourselves and in using respo~­ sibly what· He~as. given us. o


TOMORROW - SS. Philip and James.' Apostles. Catholic public worship ,and ,oommon prayer follows the norm given by our Lord in today's Gospel. It is worship of the Father and prayer to the Father; through Christ, and in the Spirit. So it is never proper, nor' is it true, to defend' the doctrine of the oommunion of saints or of the intercession of 'saints by denying 'the Christian's immediate access to tpeFather. Prayer for the intercession of saints is enrichment, an. act of oonfidence in fraternal charity, iil 'bearing one another's burdens. But it is never a denial hf the norm. SATURDAY SS.. Nereus," Achilleus and Companions, Martyrs. The Gospel tells us about a man who put his trust in the words that Jesus had spoken ,to him. It is this faithful trust that the liturgy, seeks to elicit through the Spirit working in' our hearts as we listen to the Bible readings at Mass. At Mass we are not concerned with scholarly problems relating to .. the biblical texts. We listen to hear the good news of our salvation.

This is not any attempt to sabotage organized sports. They have a great place in the community on a natIonal , " I and area and local basis. !

with his Resurrection. After the Resurrection, for the worshiping community of Christians on earth there remain those evil .desires which war against the soul (Reading) and, the constant struggle ·forvirtue and righteousness (Collec't, Secret, Postcommunion). This is the "little while" (Gospel) in which sorrow is real even though it is the prelude to certain joy. The difference is that we have in His Resurrection the covenanted Pro:vJ.ise, and that' moral perfection is not the end or goal of the Christian's spiritual life but only a means and an' expression of the life of union with the Father in Jesus Christ and the Spirit.

MONDAY - Mass as on Sunday. The fact that this is the "little while...· the "space-be~ween,". the time of pilgrimage. In no way reduces the importance of this earthly life. On the contrary. the G<>spel compares it to. a time of pregnancy, a time of dIscomfort, pain, -anx~ety. but entirely J!ecessary if there is to be jOY,a birth, a new creature. Our chief act of public worship is a -sacrificial act not only because it is through our Saviour's freely-offered death and Re, surrection that we have a divine answer to the human problems of sin and death. but also because we must offer ourselves with Him during this "little while." TUESDAY - St. John Baptist De La Salle. Confessor. The liturgy, our public worship, is a teacher to form teachers. The good news does not belong to that segment of humanity which h,as thus far been able to hear it. It d~es not belong kl any Latin or European cultural bloc. We honor today a great teacher and a founder of a teaching order. The Mass reminds us that a true Catholic will receive 'all cultures, languages, all "children," as the Son of God took a human nature and identified himself with every "race" and every people. Only when we receive a,nd accept them can we share with them the good news.

trying to bring peace betweeli the factions of the empire. Iii 482 -the Emperor Zeno issued a statement of doctrinal ambiguity called the Henotikon (formula of union) at the, instigation of .the ·patriarch Acacius. In its positive wording the statement was orthodox, but it undermined the' value of the Council of Chal-: cedon. Pope St. Felix III held' a council in Rome and deposed ar -, excommunicated Peter Mongos, the Monophysite patriarch of Alexandria, who had' ousted the CatholiC'" patriarch after signing the Henotikon and also Acacius, who had composed 'the formula. Acacius refused to submit and brol:e off union with Rome. The schism lasted for some 35 years,: spurred on by the rule of Emperor Anastasius, a professed Monophysite. At the death of Anastasius, Justin" his successor. began negotiations with Pope St. Hormisdas and peace was externally restored, in 519 by having the oriental bishops sign the formula of Pope Hormisdas in which the primacy of the Holy See is affirmed and the leading Monophysites condemned. Pope VigiIiu8 Justinian succeeded his uncle Justin as emperor in 527 and reigned 38 years. Famous for his', work in consolidating Roman law, he is likewise infamoiJs for his interference in theological questions. Justinian was greatly influenced by his wife Theodora, ;l' striptease artist oonverted to Monophysite Christianity, who did much to further Monphysitism even trying to have a Mo~ophysite appointed patriarch of Constantinople. When Pope St. Agapitus died on a visit to Constantinople and his successor Silverius died after banishment, Theodora contrived to give the papacy to Vigilius, a deacon, on the condition that he approve her Monophysite' favorites. It appears that Pope Vi'gilius .publicly professed the creed of Chalcedon as Pope, but in a, private letter addressed to the three eastern patriarchs he sided with their Monophysite views.

They Won't Starve It isn't easy to learn to be relaxed and unconcerned about food if you were brought up to believe that it is sinful- not to finish everything on your plate But parents have no .magic way of knowing how much a youngster can eat. Children have a built-in appetite regulator. On this regime they may miss a meal or two but they will not starve.

Many children normally go through periods of temporary loss of appetite. If you immediately get upset and start insisting, your child quickly learns that his eating is very important to you. He senses, too, that at mealtime he can rebel against too many spankings or harsh training practices in other parts of his life. As, one youngster put it, "It~s my stomach, isn't it?"

Father Heffernan warned o~ "hindsight specialists who have the answers to everything long after .the answer is needed," and added that "presidents of anything from parish groups' to large countries are fair game for criticism·... "A~y president or chairman," he stated, "accepts the responsibility not only of coming up with ideas, but also of being exposed to the criticism of the overenthusiastic ',' .

mn Courrncol Work : PARIS (NC) - Laymen are not taking part in 'the work of. the ecumenical eouncil because the lay aposwlate itself has not spread far enough, Maurice Cardinal Feltin has declared. ' . '''Some people have thou/.tht that certain laymen might, even in the role of consultors, be <:aIled to cooperate with the bishops, since there now is in the Church an organized laity colla,;, borating actively in the aposto- ' late of the ,bishops and priests," the Archbishop of Paris noted. '''There seems to be no obstacle to the principle of su~q . participation. ,'. "But without doubt, this par~ ticipation of laymen has not yet been sufficiently widespread in the Church to allow, at this pOint, their active and di~ect contribution to an ecumemcal council." Cardinal Feltin contin~eck '"Let us guard against con.. eluding that the laity are n~ present at the council. , 'Present Through Bishops'

"First of all, there is a com.,' mission of, the lay apostolate, whose members and consultors, both. bishops and priests, have collaborated long and deeply with the laity in Catholic Action movements. . . '''But above all,' the laity are: preseqt at the council through their bishops themselves. "It' would be a caricature of the Church to think of the laity as ,a sort of third estate (lower, claSs) less favored than the bis,:" hops and priests, who up to now had no place in ecumenical councils. . !'Laymen are the people of God who have the bishops as their guides and responsible leaders. Each diocese, is like a family with the 'bishop as its father, or even mj:>re likea body' with a bishop for a head.' Wherever the bishop is, there also are priests and, laymen in-, separably united to their chief."!

Most Rev. Ftdton J. Sheen, IDl.



We have been writing this column for more than 10 years. It is quite different from most columns in that it combines two chm:acteristics: 1) it gives missionary information; 2)· it offers a spiritual challenge to aid the Holy Father and his Society for the Propagation of the Faith. It seeks to distress· the comfortable, to whom it is addressed, and to comfort the distressed Da!Dely, the poor in Asia, Africa and Oceania. '

Our readers are of two different types. ·Ii~e the two daughters-In-law of Naomi. When Naomi returned to her natlvo Bethlehem after the del1>&h of her' two sons, their wives,· who were Moabfite and not .Jewish women, accompanied her to the border' of .JUQ. "Orpha kissed her mother-In-law and went back (to the; pagan land); Buth would not leave her side." Orpha had many good qualities. She was courteous and kind; she had reverence for those .who were wholly dedleated to God: she was· affectionate and thoughtful, but she "went back to her own people and the goda they worship." Ruth, however, said to hell' mother-In-law: "Thy people shall be' my people: thy Gocll shaJ.P be my God."

.-EASTERN GARB: Clothed in Eastern Rite vestments, Richard Cardinal Cushing, Archbishop of. Boston, presides at the consecration of Archbishop John· Bassoul of Horns, .Syria, at ceremonies in the Cathedral of the Holy .GrOSS, ~oston. NC Photo.



Our readers are led in the "God Love You" .column to the borders of the mission world, to the lands where missionaries· sp~nd themselves an~ are b,;ing spent for the cause of Chris~. . Some, however, are hke Orpha: when they see the Holy Father ,there pleading for The Society for the Propagation of the Faith they give the column a ·mother-in-Iaw kiss and go back to thei; Cross:-Iess world, the idols safe in their pocketbooks. Others, like. Ruth, .when they hear the Vicar of Christ plead for aid, prayers and scarifices, say: "Thy people in Africa and Asia shall be my people." Each day they make a small act of self-denial and at the end of the month send it to the Holy Father through his own Society. .. . . May we ask the Ruth-readers to pray for the Orpha-readers, IIInd may we assure the Ruth-readers of celestial blessings. We never hear of Orpha again. But Ruth married Boaz and .became the mother of Obed, and Obell was the grandfather of -David. Thus, from. her .seed sprang Our Lord and Savior, Jesus ChriSt. So the sacrifices of Ruth-readers will beget other-Christs as converts and priests in mission lands. . ,.

Students swap oral exams with each other and prepare ,apprehensively for the BIG TESTS. ' Ahead of the. game in one field are those students who prepared for the recent 12th annual prize examination in mathematics. The purpose of such an exam is three-fold-to stimulate interest in mathematics among teen agers; to encourage high standards of proficiency in these schools; and to acquaint students who are proficient in math with the professional opportunities in this field. Math imperative Mary Ann Ferreira and Judith Callahan of Fall River's Mt. St. Mary's have received full tuition grants from the National Science Foundation to attend Brown University summer school. The girls will be studying physics, biology or electronics." In all these fields,an extensive knowledge of math is imperative. Someone asked what benefits students derived from the recent Diocesan Teachers Conference. Posing the question to the teachers brought forth the facts that· their profeSsional competence was improved, they returned to their students renewed In spirit and enthusiasm, and the opportunity for exchange of ideas resulted in a broadening and valuable experience for the individual teacher. . One principal summed it up with "We continually strive to learn and improve,o~selvesthat our students may in turn be better." Refreshing It is to hear teachers in a discussion group relating scholastic problems and find_ ing them common. Fairhaven, New Bedford, No. Dartmouth, Fall River, Taunton or the Attleboros--teachers swapping scholastic experiences found their students with like problems and aptitudes generally.

PATERSON (NC)-Hospitality to refugee CUban~ arriving in this area from Miami is not m matter of option but "the law of Christian living," Bishop James A. McNulty of Paterson said here. The Bishop asked Catholics m. the diocese to open their hearts and homes to Cuban children, 4(]) of whom arrived at Newark Airport under auspices of PatersO!l Diocesan Catholic Charities. Noting that "2,000 refugees ar~ rive in Miami every week," ths Bishop added that "their loved ones have been slain or imprisoned, their homes and posseszions taken from them." "In this emergency," he stated, U 'love of neighbor' is not a matter of option or counsel; it is the Lord's commandment. It is the law of Christian living. This lov<1l of neighbor embraces all men i:JI need."

PHILADELPHIA (NC) - A challenge to "awaken the conscience of Catholic America" was given Catholics in the communications media by Father Albert J. Nevin~. M.M., president of the Catholic Press Association. "America stands at the crossroads, and like it or not, those of us who are in communications are the guardians of the American conscience, the balance scales of justice, the catalyst of public opinion," the priestjournalist said. Father Nevins, who is editor of Maryknoll magazine, spoke at a dinner after receiving Villanova University's 51. Augustine Award for 1962. Dwell in Void "By and large our Catholic-people are insensible, dwelling in a vast void of silence," Father Nevins said. "It is not that

Hails Efforts' Continued from Page One by Catholic and Protestant churchmen in the restudy was: "How could Hitlerism have - occurred in a Christian civilization?" The Jewish leader cited the action of His Holiness Pope John XXIII in eliminating the phrase "perfidious Jews" from the Good Friday liturgy and the declaration of the' Protestant Synod of Berlin-Brandenburg that "hatred toward Jews is a manifest impiety." Recen& Steps Shuster said recent steps by leading Catholic authorities had raised 'hopes that the forthcoming e cum e n i cal council would "pave the way for a fundamental reexamination of distc ·ted pictur~s of other religious groups contained in religious texts which in the past have been the source of misunderstandings and prejudice." At another session, the' direct,· ")f the Jewish 'agency's Latin American office warned that anti-Semitism in South America generally, and particularly in Argentina, "is at its highest level since the end of World War II."


Praises Nuns WASHINGTOfJ (NC) - Rep. Thomas J. Lane of Massachusetts. in a statement placed iy the Congressi1>nal Record, paid tribute to nuns, saying, "wherever there are people in need ••• there you will find a nun."

C051l~~oe!mce they are in favor of hunger, oppression, disease. But they are so wrapped up in their own cares, comforts and little worlds, that they have subconsciously drawn the shades so as not to be disturbed by the problems outside." CathOlics in the communications media, Father Nevins said, must strive "to make our people understand that in the baptismal ritual they were pledged to the service of God and neighbor." "Despite 0 u r technological growth, the American people have fallen behind in the aI'eas of religious fidelity and moral responsibility," he declared. "Expediency has become a national virtue with 'What's in' it for me?' the motto of the day."Father Nevins charged: "We feed upon our own· pettiness, our material comforts, our personal prides. We offer the 'world our pastel kitchen phones and selfdefrosting refrigerators, never realizing· that while the world may need bread, we ourselves have a greater need for the reaffirmation and revitalization of the tremendous Judaeo-Christian ideals that are the cornerstone of our society and the pillars of our nation." r------~ c_

Numb~r Tripl'es


Continued from Page One the' midway march in the p'ast half century, the ratio of priests to Catholics~ was actually one per every 662.> Thus, while the ;ratio improves between 1912 and 1937, ,it has actually deteriorated in the last 25 years. .. Religious Order A comparison· of the figures for religious order priests with those for diocesan priests shows that, while both groups have been growing, the order' men have been increasing fa'ster than the, diocesan clergy. In 1912 there were 12,996 U.S. diocesan prie~s and in 1962 there are :13,774. Thus,' the- number of diocesan clergy today is two-and-a-half times the number a half century_ ago. At the same time, however, t1}e number of religious order priests is almost five times what it was 50 years ago. Order clergy, who totaled 4,495 in 1912, number 21,807 today. In 1912 there were in the United States 6,006' seminarians 'and 17,491 priests;' thus the number ,)f seminarians was roughly' 36 per cent of the number of "priests. By contrast, in' 1962 there are 46,189 seminarians and '55,581 priests - 83 per cent as many seminarians as priests. This is an improvement Qvet 1937, when there were twothirds 'as' many seminarians as' priests 21,877 seminarians and 31,649 priests. 'Related to the increase in the number of seminarians 'has been the increase in the number of seminaries - from 83 in 1912 to 205 in ']937 and 545 today.

THE HOLY LAND-sacred to Christian, Mos.tem and- Jew~ has been, for the past fo~rteen years, A LAND DIVIDED. Since 1948,' the time of the Arab-Israeli War, more than ONE MILLION ARABS have been homeless, living in _ exile in GAZA, JORDAN, LEBANON and SYRIA. ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND of these ARABS are CATHOLICS. The PONTIFICAL MISSION FOR PALESTINE, our Holy Father's Relief Agency for PALESTINE REFuGEEs' has bee n instrumental through the years in bringing spirituTht Holy Fathrr's MisJion AiJ al comfort and material aid to these war victims who lost everything' and for tilt Orimfa/ Churrh still need everything. Operating with funds donated through the CATHOLIC NEAR EAST WELFARE ASSOCIATION the Father of Christendom has been able to give food, shelter, clothing, medical aid and spiritual care to thousands who lost, in 1948. home, livelihood, all maierial possessions. During the month of May each year we appeal for the necessary financial help to keep the PONTIFICAL MISSION FOR PALESTINE in operation. The number of refugees continues to grow as children are born in exile-4,OOO babies were bom in Gaza last year - and, with no immediate solution of the "Palestine Problem" in sight we must continue to supply these poor people with all the things necessary for the life of their bodies 'as' well as for the .life of their souls.

Case enjoyed an open date Tuesday and coach Jack McCarthy promises to have the Cardinals in fine fettle for today's crucial Hanson Field date. Somerset will be looking toward a sweep of the series having taken a 7-2 decision on opening day behind the effective hurling of Sophomore portsider Jim Goodwin. Coach Jim Sullivan will more than likely go with Goodwin again today. The youngster is 3-0 at this writing. Somerset executed an unusual triple play, in last Thursday's ,8-2 conquest of Apponequet. The homesters had men on first and second, none out in the fifth. A tap to the mound was fielded to third for a force; third baseman Bruce Cranshaw fired a strike to Ray Ready at first to get the batter and Ready then whipped a throw to shortstop Pat Hunt on second to rub out the third runner who had swung wide on the play.
