Over $300,000 Mark First returns from the 115 parishes and the Special Gift dona- . tions received to date bring the total to $308,216.00, in the 1973 Catholic Charities Appeal. "It is most gratifying to see the initial parish reports." said Joseph H. Feitelberg of Somerset, diocesan lay chairman of this year's Appeal. "It indicates a most favorable response by the people in the parishes to Bishop Cronin's call for support of the works of chairty, mercy, social service and other apostolic endeavors of the diocese," he noted. Every parish which surpasses its 1972 fina'l total in the Appeal ~


in this year's campaign will be listed on the Honor Roll. Last year, 88 p;lrishes execeeded previous totals and were enrolled on

The family spirit which pervaded the discussions communicated the' notion that an era of dialogue has arrived and .polarization is waning in the American Church. The convocation, and. 11 others like it across the United States, had a set purpose: to probe questions of "Fami,ly Life and Marriage" and "Youth and the Church'! and to give special consideration to abortion. The findings will form the input for what the National Conference of

Shows Priest's Victimhood In Rev. Leo C~rry's Life Just as the mother of the apostles James and John did not fully understand "that their foliowing Christ would mean sharing in a new and eternal and perfect priesthood whose offering would no longer be vicarious, but for real ... so Father Leo M. Curry was chosen by Christ to drink deeply of the cup of suffering."


Honor Roll. .Indications show that every parish will strive to surpass its 1972 contributions. The first parishes to attain honor roll stat liS this year are St. Louis, Fall River with a total of $3,383 up to this date, and St. Rita, Marion with a present total of $2,622.00. Other parishes are close to achieving Honor Roll Status. A new plan, started a few years ago, divides the diocese into five areas, listing the first five leading parishes in each area. There would be 25 parishes listed. The areas are: Cape Cod and the Islands, the Attleboros, Taunton, New Bedford and Fall River.

So spoke Rev. Daniel E. Carey, pastor of St. Dominic Parish in Swansea as he delivered the homily at the concelebrated Pontifical Mass' of Christian' Burial for his classmate, Rev. Leo M. Curry, Co-Chaplain of the Catholic. Memorial Home, who died on May 5. "When Father Curry stood at the altar to offer the Body and Blood of the Lamb of God, he was at the same time offering his own bodily sufferings in union with Jesus. "The cup Father Curry offered was filled with :the sufferings of the High Priest, but inseparably intermingled in that cup was the wealth of his own. It was not unfortunate, it was of divine plan and design, that Father Curry suffered mental anguish and physical pain for so many years of his life. "Pressed to his lips was the same cup of which Jesus drank, tl1e same cup that was offered to James and John, the same partici'j)ation in the Victimhood of the Lamb of God. "In this our own day, we hear much of the participation of the laity in the priesthood of Christ. An earlier generation heard little of this profound truth whereby Turn to Page Three

Catholic Bishops will say on the subjects in their annual meeting next November. Bishop Louis E. Gelineau of Providence,.R. I., spokesman for the New England bishops said a committee of four prelates-Archbishop John F. Whealon of Hartford, Bishop Peter L. Gerety of Portland, Bishop Wa,lter W. Curtis of Bridgeport, Bishop Joseph F. Maguire of Boston-will study all the information and report back to the bishops of the region. After approval by the region's bishops, the recommendations will be sent to the NCCB in Washington for consideration along with the reports of the other 11 regions. The New Englanders did their assignment and went further. They took 10 "consensus" votes on extra things they thought the hierarchy should know their views about. These included Communion in the hand which they indorsed almost unanimously; exploration of "women in the ministry"; education on the subject of unconditional amnesty for draft evaders; appointment of vicars in dioceses for the Spanish-speaking; examination of diocesan investment policies in the light of Turn to Page Six

Invitation Bishop Cronin cordially invites all the clergy, Religious and laity of the Diocese to participate in the priestly ordination of Rev. Mr. Steven R. Furtado, Rev. Mr. Philip J.

An appeal for Catholic books for free parish libraries has been received from the Republic of Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon. During 1972, say officials of the Sri Lanka Association of Parish Librarians, seven 50-book libraries were organized with the aid of donations from the U.S. Anchor readers may send books to M. Henry, 25/3 Lauries Road, Colombo 4, Sri Lanka (Ceylon). Packages should be marked BOOKS-NO VALUE and should 'bear the donor's name and return address.

Continued from Page One we believe that all those baptized in Christ Jesus share in HIS priesthood to a definite degree. "But, though earlier generations may not have heard of it, may it not be true that they were not without an understanding of participation in the Victimhood of Christ. "Perhaps our parents and grandparents demonstrated their understanding more effectively than our own generation when we heard from their lips so often the e~pressions such as 'It is the will of God' and 'It is the cross I have to bear.' "Though they realized it not in theological terms, they were drinking of the cup offered to their lips by Christ the Priest. To all who are baptized in His Name, the Lord Jesus grants a share in his priesthood, and a share in greater or less degree in His Victimhood." Congratulating the family of Father Curry that their priest relative had been especially chosen by the Priest-Victim of Calvary, Father Carey offered a final tribute: "It is a privilege to be able to pronounce over our beloved brother priest, Father Leo M. Curray, 'Behold, a lamb of God.''' Principal celebrant of the Mass of Christian Burial, celebrated at the Cathedral Tuesday morning, was Most Rev. Daniel A. Cronin, -S.T.D., Bishop of Fall River. ' Some 30 priests concelebrated with the Bishop While many others from throughout the diocese witnessed the rites. Also assisting were Bishop James J. Gerrard, AuxiHary Bishop of Fall River, and Bishop James 1. Connolly, Former Bishop of Fall River. Born in New Bedford Oct. 31, 1908, he was a son of the late <


Robert J. Curry and Ann M. (Mullaney) Curry. Ordained hI Kiver May 31, 1934, by the Most Rev. James L. Cassidy, he was a gr~duat3 of St. Mary's a~d Holy Family High School in New Bedford and completed seminary at St. Charles and St. Mary in Baltimore. Formerly an assistant pastor at St.' Patrick's Church ,in Fall River, he had been assistant pastor at St. Patrick's in Wareham and St. Joseph's in Taunton. He served with the Society of St. Sulpice and was administrator of St. Augustine's Church in Vineyard Haven. He had been pastor of St. Joseph's Church in North Dighton. He is survived by a brother, Thomas Curry of Taunton.

Individ,!-al Effort


The Catholic Charities Appeal is a prime example of the whole People of God working together. . Every individual involved in the Appeal has a role to play. The Bishop focuses the work of charity and mercy that the Church must perform. The Appeal Office staff does the demanding work of lining up all the details and providing the theme and supplies. The priests of the parishes must give the commitme:nt and leadership and establish the parish structure. The volunteers who ring door bells must-{)ach one-do th{~ most important work of insuring that every individual is given the opportunity to share in the work of Christ by contributing to the Appeal. At this stage, the work of the Individual collector means much. . If a few collect.ors in each parish decide to make return calls, to speak with conviction to those whom they contact, to giv~ the exampr,e to others by their own seriousnesstheQ great difference will be evident and it will be a difference for good. If a few collectors take the easy way out-a perfunctory single call and then no more effortthe difference will be an unhappy one. Yes, the Church believes in giving great responsibilities to individuals. And if each individual cooperates, the work of God will be can:ied out.

Woods Hole Native Marks Silver Jubilee As Carmelite Nun in Terre Haute J.Last Friday was a special day for the family of Sister Joseph of Jesus Mary, formerly Charlotte McKenzie of St. Joseph's ,par,ish, Woods Hole. The cloistered Carmelite nun celebrated her silver jubilee as a member of the' Carmel of Terre Haute, Ind. Among those rejoicing with her were her sister, Miss Helen McKenzie, a biology teacher at Lawrence High School, Falmouth, and her mother,' Mrs. Robert L. McKenzie, now a resident of Buzzards Bay, two married brothers, Robert and Richard, five nieces and a nephew. Another sister, Anne, died in 1967, and also passed away is her father, Robert' McKenzie Family members were not able to travel to Terre Haute for the jubilee, but members of Sister Joseph's convent are arranging a later celebration for them.

Spain, who has recently.been 'declared' the first woman Doctor of the Catholic Church, and who is still known for her tremendous spiritual insight, her wisdom and ller sense of humor, through timeless writings that are the patrimony of the whole world, Carmel today is still a place set apart for God. Through prayer and cloister, liturgy and manual work, the Carmelite nuns offer praise to God, and intercession for all men. They support themselves through mak路 ing altar breads, and liturgical vestments, and a variety of crafts, but Carmel is, above all, a solitude where the divine romance of God seeking the soul and the soul seeking God is still lived out in joyful giving.

tionships in Carmel? Would this not be a real key to our work of renewal? It could bring about a revitalization of older vocations, and inspiration for new ones. "Superiors need a new, understanding of the degree of ,individualization that exists in the growth process of each Sister. They need the vision and ability to meet the challenge of working out the process of spiritual and personal growth, not in a general way, but through meet,ing the personal need of each nun, at whatever level of human incapacity or spiritual underdevelopment she may be. The Holy Spirit is the unique director of souls, but to the extent of a woman's innate talent for intuition and understanding, can we not tend the spark of life and love until it can catch hold more deeply and rise to the demands of the living Flame? Two Contributions "There is no doubt but that our Holy Mother herself had this touch, this gift of dealing person to person with her nuns. There is no doubt; too, that Prioresses and Novice Mistresses attempt to imitate this quality of Teresa, but our nuns come from a far more complex world than that of the 16th century, and even carefully selected candidates reflect the 'Problems and complexities of our times. "Two new contributions that have come to us from the Council and that affect every relationship in the Church' speak of this point: the consideration of the human person as the summit of creation; and the notion of government for all superiors as a loving service."

Most Gardeners Are Happy ,To Share Their Expertise By Joe and Marilyn Roderick The Spring garden is in full bloom and if there is a time of the year when most gardens are pretty, it is now.

I have mentioned before that there is nothing a gardener likes more than· having people. visit and. admire his garden. This is something ,that. most people overlook in planning their own gardens; they search through catalogs rather than through. gardens. Of course, this is done out of misplaced shyness, but it is unfortunate that beginners fail to take advantage of the experienceand quality of other enthu· . siasts. Stop and Ask _ I still make a point of visitling pretty gardens and loolting for them. Whe!'! I see something different or especially eye-appealing I. do not hesitate to stop my car and inquire of the gardener, cven if it means knocking on a doo'r, to determine what it is that I ha've seen. I cannot. even count the number of times I have done this and how many times I have spent an hour or two. with some newly met gardene!' talking ahout his or her garden. This is especially true of the Spring garden when one sees so many perennials and small plants. There are so many var,i· eties of rock plants, for instance, that it is almost impossible' to have seen them all; a diHplay of interested ignorance is no crime. On these visits to other peoples'gardens I rarely seek plants; only infol1mation.Nobody likes a free-loader. Quite often, though, we end in trading plants that we are interested in, and it's a worthwhile experience on all sides. My' point is that gardeners as' a whole are both proud to sl10w and generous 'with information about their gardens and if the beginner wishes to avoid spending a great deal of energy needlessly he should take the opportun,ity to avail himself of the information he c~n garner from exp€~rienced gardeners. in the Kitchen Other than Watergate, one of the main topics of conversation where people gather in food.

Dessert recipes are always a favorite and without a doubt over the years ,they are the ones that have elicited the most phone calls and letters. Desserts Are Tops Perhaps one reason for the immense popularity of cake recipes is that even if the man in your life is a staunch meat and potato man he Vlr.ill still try a variety (of desserts and most men enjoy cakes. . Cakes can venture out to club meetings, coffee clatches, and late snacks. They can be tucked into lunches, brought into the office foJ' everyone to try, or just kept at home to nibble on. When I thi~k back on the recipes that have crossed my desk, the ones, that stick out in my mind as the most popular are carrot c:ake,. red velvet cake pumpkin cake, sour cream coffee cake, ete. These are the ones that crop up year after year.,... with slight variations-but basi· cally the same and I'm posJtive that 20 years from now they'll still be the favorites with a few new twists. You know what Marie Antoinette said - "Let them eat cake.'" This very simple 'cake reclpe may already be in'your files but I found it in Gladys Taber's new cookbook, "My Own Cook Book," just recently published by J. B. Lippincott Company.

KNOW YOUR FAITH God Loves' With An Eternal Love I I God--The Bridegroom! "You're nobody till somebody loves you." These opening lyrics of a once-popular song 'express one way of describing human love. In a sense, the sentiment of these words goes a bit beyond the ordinary "moon-spoon" ro,mancism of lesser lyrics. They state the impact of love on the Derson loved. For the, first time perhaps he or she feels like someone else has singled him or her out of the crowd as lovable.

Can God fall in love? If he did, could his love be blind? If it was, would it be infinitely blind? Who would 'dare sugge5t such things? God to us means infinite perfection. His love for his creatures merely appreciates that same perfection in' other forms.



When God loves his creatures, he recognizes the image .of his own'perfection reflected in them. In loving .us, God admires his' own' handiwork. But. we could hardly imag.ine God loving us as if he were real· Iy being attracted to someone outside himself. We can't think of him loving us 1n the way that one' of us "falls in love" with another. Those notions seem to violate our basic idea of what Go<! is.So much for our "basic idea." Whatever the reason; God in fact has chosen to describe himself frequently in the Bible as'·8. passionate and even foolish . lover. As God tells his own story, he blindly pursues 1m unworthy object-ourselves. And even repeated bad experiences with us never succeed in teaching him to give us up. The classical scriptural passages are Ezekiel 16, Jerem.iah 2, and 3, the Song of Songs, and the book of Hosea. In these and many other passages of the


The joy of such recognition and affection can bring a feeling of , self·importance and worth perhaps for the first time. . , Ordinarily, love does not stop there. It often leads to marriage, WITHOUT GOD: "We began to experience how cold the seal on the mutual affection and commitment of the lovers to ,and hungry, we were without him."

A Brush With Death· II A few days ago I had an ex· trem~ly close brush with death -and. one hour to prepa~e for it. It ha'ppened on a' Monday morning on a commuter flight from Philadelphia to Trenton. I was enroute to Princeton Theological Seminary for my weekly



graduate course in liturgy and had as companions 7 other veteran air travelers. We were fortunate to have as pilots two men quite young but compete'nt, most professional and remarkably cool under pressure. At 9:20 our plane approached the small Mercer County airport in Trenton, then zoomed up and circled away from the field. "Folks, we're haying trouble with our landing gear, but we


recognition. Love is like that; it increases us and draws out all of those things that lie dormant within us. God's Total Love Because of the centrality and significance of love in human experience, it is not surprising that God used it to describe his relations with men, But he did not stop simply with the emotion and effects of love; he used the symbolism of marriage to represent his devotion and commitment to those he loves. Anc;l so his People, Israel and the Church, are Iiis bride, and as the Bridegroom he constantly showers her with affection and signs of devotion. His love, however is different. In the most profound' sense, his love made nothing into somethings and somebodys by a creative word. Deserted and betrayed 'by his lovers, he entered over and over again into new marriages with them. As a matter of fact he never ,rescinded that initial contract and never stopped loving what was goo<! in his creation. Finally, unlike all human love and marriage which looks to some bene· fit to both lovers. God is totally unselfish and generous. All he asks is a return of the gift of . ., Turn to Page Eighteen

Jesus Clnd Joy Joy is a key to meaningful religious education. L~arning about God and the meaning of life is meant to be a happy experience, even if at times it may be difficult and painful. In the very first book written on Christian education, St. Augustine in the fourth century signalled out the teacher's joyful spirit as the second most important attitude of the successful catechist. The first requJsite was iove, which is creative of 'joy. Augustine writes in his First Catechetical Instruction: "The thread of our discourse is affected by the very joy that we ourselves eXiperience, and as a consequence is delivered more easily' and received more gratefully . . . our chief concern is what means we should adopt to ensure that the catechizer enjoys his work; for the more he is able to do so, the more agreeable will he prove." Augustine's insight, drawn from his own experience as a catechist has been confirmed by religious educators through the General Catechetical Directory (No. 53) and the American Bishops Basic Teachings for Catholic Religious Education (No.2) indicate the close relationship between insight into the reality of God's love and the experience Of joy. • Image of Joy Knowing God, recognizing his gracious involvement in our lives, is a source of joy."

Teresa's Book ,Is Insi,der's Story of Mafia Workings


Is there any point in reading My Life Jin the Mafia by Vincent Teresa with Thomas C. Renner (Doubleday, 277 Park Ave., New York, N. Y. 10017. $8.95)? Not to keep you in suspense-yes, there is. It is far from being an important literary work. He confirms the allegation It is not a profound study that the top men of the regional -of organized crime in the mobs have working arrrange· United States.

KENNEDY w~:::=:t::*}:$m!W~m~~it11~§i?J~


Nostra which is corrupting this country· . Teresa, now in ,his middle 40s, was the number three man in the New England mob (referred to by its members as "the Office") until his arrest and conviction in 1969. Imprisoned at Lewisburg" Pa., he became an informer for the government later that same year, upon learning that the mob was cheating him of money to which he was entitled, and threatening his w!fe and children. His grandfather had been a member of the Mafia in Sicily, and after coming to this country headquartered a small gang in Boston. The author's father did not follow that lead, but worked hard in modest jobs to support his family. ' Vincent Teresa got in trouble early. He was insolent and intractable at school, and his education ended with the eighth grade. As a boy he gambled heavily and lost heavily. It was to pay debts thus incurred that he turned to a life of crime. Evidently he had a gift for winning people's confidence, and this he exploited in ever more ambitious - swindles. Versatile Criminal He says that he was never a "made guy," which meanfl a formally initiated member of the mob. To qualify as a "made guy" one had to perform a murder under orders. Teresa never fulfilled this requirement. But the list of crimes he perpetrated, or was somehow involved in" is extensive. It incudes the stealing of millions of dollars in cash, goods, and securities. He was involved in arson and counterfeiting. He ran crooked gambling junkets to Las Vegas, Antigua, Haiti, London. He loansharked and blackmailed. These are but a few highlights of the varied career of a versatile criminal. But of greater interest: than his personal accomplishmlmts is the insight he offers into organized crime. He knows antj tells , most about its operations in New England. But' he is acquainted with its personnel and doings in , New York, Chica'go, Detroit, Miami, New Orleans and elsewhere in the country:


ruling body of nine to twelve members called "the Commis: sian," 'The Commission' Each mob has its a'ssassination squad which keeps in regular training and is kept on regular salary. These squads are available for what Teresa calls "Iendlease assignments." Ifa boss in New England wants a special joh done, he can borrow one or more assassins from, say, a boss in New Jersey. "There's no charge for the service - it's a favor from one boss to another." The multiplicity and the magnitude of organized crime's enterprises are staggering. In terms of money, billions are involved. And the invasion of legitimate businesses is already major and continues to expand. The power wielded by this massive force of evil is tremendous, and certainly inimical to the society within which it functions. Corrupt Intrluence How account for its baleful success? Teresa cites, first, the buying oj' key police' officers and officials by the mob. He names some names, but not a great many. He instances the kinds of collaboration on which the criminals can count and the amounts paid for it,. The mob has its connections in the offices of at least some district attorneys, according to Teresa, and there are corrupt judges. II: has connections, too, in liquor licensing offices, in motor vehicle offices, and in other municipal and state agencies. It wields great political influence, a.nd it has power in labor unions. Then there is the attitude of people. On the part of some, there is indifference to what is going on. Others consider the mob glamorous and flock to clubs and resorts which it owns or patronizes. The mob counts heavily on the greed of individuals, not only in its vast rigged gambling system but also in its loansharking. The latter offers a prospect of profits which can 'be hidden from the federal tax collectors. Special Treatment Teresa observes of people, "The mOfe money they have, the easier they are to take." He speaks, for example, of a millionaire who, when he heard of loansharking, was eager to get into it. This man was a prominent citizen in a large American city. The mob's sway reaches into federal prisons, according to Teresa. \",'hen he was sent to Lewisburg, he found that other mob prisoners had a section to themselves. It was ruled hy Car.! mine Galente, known as Lillo, once undel'boss to the celebrated Joseph Bonanno. He had been convicted, on narcotics conspiracy charge. He had special food, special privileges, and special treatment.

Continued' from 'Page Sixteen ing about God's goodness "should awaken joy," for his is the "love of a father, the love of a/ spouse." The Bishops' final allusion to God's love as that of a "spouse" echoes a recurring biblical theme. ' Beginning with the prophet Hosea and running through to the very last chapters of the New Testament, God, and then Jesus, is referred to as the "Bridegroom." The image is always evocative of joy, because it recalls the intimately personal love God has for each individual as well as for his chosen people. Unless the religious educator communicates a sense of deep joy, people may rightfully question whether what he beUeves and teaches is really "good news." Joy, a mark of the Holy Spirit's presence (Gal. 5:22), can not ~ubstitute for sound doctrine or honest intellectual investigation in religious education. But the teacher's joy iii what he or she has to share is an obvious factor in making doctrine credible and intellectual effort worth while. , Each catechist might do well to reflect on whether he really is'happy to see those he is teaching, whether he shares with his students a personal joy in his faith. A serious resolution, to work at making religion education a joyful experience is not far from the very heart of becoming a more successful cate· chist.
