Affirms' Righ! to Organize ATLANTA (NC)-Archbishop Thomas A. Donnelan of Atlanta, affirming the Church's sup-' port of the right of workers to organize, called on labor unions to admit workers into their ranks without discrimination. He made the. appeal at a press conference during which "he announced that a May Day Mass for labor would be celebrated at the cathedral here. 'Msgr. George Higgins, United ,States Catholic Conference, director of the division of urban life was scheduled as a homilist. "This event will present the Church with a unique opportunity to publicly declare its concern for the condition of working man, his' rights and duties," the archbishop said. ,One of man;s, rights, he declared, "a.nd sometimes this can

even be a' duty, is, to gather together in organizations which will enable him to bargain collectively for living wages, decent working conditions, and humane hours whieh will' allow him to work and spend time with his family.in dignity." He noted that the Second Vatican Council and the world's bishops have recognized these rights. Archbishop Donnellan :said that in recognizing and strongly promoting the right of workers to organize, "the union likeWise, should guard against any exces7 sive use' of economic power which' fails, to recognize the rights of others or employ ppysical violence as a tactic for, gain." Georgia's governor, and Atlanta's mayor proclaimed ,May Day as Church-Labor Solidarity ·Day.

Opposes Illegal Aid to ··Schools BROOKLYN (NC) - Catholic schools would rather "take no aid at all and starve until we close" than accept an unconstitutional form of government financal assistance, Bishop Francis Mugavero of Brooklyn declared here. He told a meeting of Catholic teachers: "Money is the real problem, all right, so real, our very survival is at stake. But how it comes makes all the difference in the world." Noting that many opponents of state aid to Catholic schools have claimed that Catholics are not concerned with observing the Constitution, Bishop Mugavero said: . "Let me tell you, clearly and firmly, that we, above all, are concerned. Moreover, we are prepared to take no aid at all and starve until we close rather than accept a form of aid that violates the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, which is the sacred·'guardian of our religious liberty. "Nothing more prejudices the right and just solution of this grave problem in American life than legislative enactment that would provide help on a crisis basis, at the expense, of basic constitutional principles." Bishop Mugavero also stressed that financial assistance can be designated for' parochial schools under the reasoning that "if the non public school is an important institution in our society preserving pluralism and providing freedom in the important area of education, then it is good for our society to preserve it."

Right: Mrs. Mariette Eaton, R.N., B.S., instructor at the. Fall River nursing school gives the American Beauty Rose to Miss Susan Petisca, a tradition in the graduation exercises of St. Anne's Hospital School of Nursing.

·Conf·erence· Director 'Warns of Implications.· WASHINGTON (NC)-Tougher welfare plans now being proposed by the federal government were criticized by the department of social development at the United States Catholic Conference (NSCC). John E. Cosgrove, departmental director, said he was concerned about possible implications of President Nixon's recent advocacy of a plan that encourages people on welfare to work at whatever jobs are available. He added 'that he is dismayed by reports of further actions which in esssence directly oppose the USCC's earlier call for a substantial increase in the $I,600-a-year minimum guaran-' teed income for a family of·foui under the President's original Family Assistance Plan. That plan, known as FAP, was not enacted by Congress last· year and'is still pending in the House Ways and Means Committee. Major changes in the plan, however, have occurred since the legislation was conceived by the administration nearly two years ago. More Restrictive For one thing, it now stipulates that a welfare mother must register for work and take a job unless one of her children is under the age of three. If she fails to do this, her family's federal subsidy will be cut - by $800. The President earlier proposed that welfare mothers be exempted from. the work requirement if at least one child is under six. If this new more restri'ctive exemption goes into effect as

outlined, it would mean that several hundred thousand additional women would come under the plan's work requirements. Cosgrove called the committee's injection of a more inclusive work plan for mothers "very detrimental to family life" and said it would "add an extra burden to a mother who is already the head of a family a':ld who is faced with the-. various problems of poverty." The plan's tougher approach to welfare recipients represents the views of Ways and Means Chairman Wilbur Mills (D-Ark.) and is also in line with opinion President Nixon expressed to a conference of Republican governors in Williamsburg, Va. The President, while saying that his welfare reform program

will . be "White House priority No. 1 until it is enacted," also dwelt on welfare reform as a means of getting people to work their way off welfare rolls. He said he favors a plan that encourages people to work "and that means whatever work is available. " Agreeing .with the President, Cosgrove noted that "any honorable work obviously has human dignity attached to it," but he added, "it should be compensated for at a humane level and therefore we reject the idea that any work available is suitable." He urged that "suitable" employment be defined so as "to include pay of at least the federal minimum wage - whether or not the job is covered by the law-or the prevailing wage for the industry, whichever is higher."

FalmouthWomen Donate Books A traditional activity of the Women's Guild of St. Patrick's parish, Falmouth, is the presentation of selected books to the . Falmouth Public Library. In 14 years, 39 books have been donated, including the Jerusalem Bible. This year's selection, "The Morality of Abortion," edited by John T. Noonan Jr., is .considered especially significant by guild members due to its timeiiness and content. '.'Through our· library we feel that we speak out as Catholic women to our townspeople," said Mrs. George S. Cahoon, literary chairman for the guild.

In these times of renewal in our Church, we' need ~nd want our priests to be holier, wiser, and stronger than ever. Please send to all of them your gifts uf grace, fullness, holiness, and strength. Help the newly' ordained ·to keep their dedication and zeal. Teach them how to make time for moments of intense prayer each day. Guide them to look to you for constant help. Then perhaps, dear Lord, inspire to greater devotion those priests who have already been ordained. May they grow in the 'realization of what a privilege is theirs to hold you in their hands each day and to bring you to all of us who need you so much. Encourage and aid pastors who are "snowed under" by so· many details and problems. Let them seek and feel the comfort' of Your Presence each day in order to keep more easily their precious' balance in every facet of their work. Only You know how to measure the amount of patience and understanding which they need.

Have you ever wished you had a son a priest? Now you can have a 'priest of your own'-and share forever in all the good he does. . . . Throughout the Near East each year, grateful bishops ordain hundreds of new priests trained by people like you.... Their own families are· . too poor to support them in training, but good Catholics in America 'adopted' these seminarians, encouraged them. all the way to ordination.... In some inspiring cases, this support was given at personal sacrifice. . . . How can you begin? Write to us now. We'll send you the name of a young seminarian who needs' you, and he will write to you. Make the pay' ments for his training to suit your convenience ($15.00 a month, or $180 a year, or the total $1,080 all at once). Join your sacrifices to his, and at every Sacrifice of the Mass,. he will always remember who made it possible.

Disillusion,ment :.

To a certain group of European and American intellectuals - real and otherwise - Cuba's Fidel Castro was th~ir o~n pet revolutionary. From a reasonably safe dis- , tance they hailed him as a true man of the people and one whose actions anel governmeritwere "a model in the realm of socialism." All ofa sudden--and not, 'of course, surprisinglydisillusionment has set in. The Cuban poet, Heberto Padilla, was recently imprisoned in Cuba on unspecified charges and issueq what was called a "confessIon" describing himself as ignoble, unjust, treacherous and lying among other things. : ' Now' 60 American and Europeans who' once praised. Castro have denounced him and this action as absurd and have expreS;ed their shame and' anger over what has happened. " " People like Jean-Paul Sarti-e, Susan Sontag, Alberto Moravia, Pier-P~olo Passolini have signed t~e protest.The "ordinary" person will undoubtedly be glad to see that these Western intellectuals have finally caught, up with the common-sense' evaluation ?f Castro that· most people made years ago. But it is strange how these, so.called well-informed persons have to wait until one of their own is touched before becoming aware of /what is really going' on.

.Says America Gives Best Hope of World Survival At a time. when all over the world the smart "with-it" attitude among the educated young is to be anti-American, it is a refreshing surprise to come. upon a book which, written by, of all people, a young left-wing Frenchman, says the exact opposite of But today in the UI'!ited States, the world's current cliches. This book "Ni Marx ni the extent of the racial revoluJesus" by Jean-Francois Re- tion is, as M. Revel points out,

By BARBARA

WARD

f

vel has a rather silly title since the young author never mentions Christ from beginning to end and apart from a few libertarian views on sex, says nothing that a serious, dedicated' follower of the gospels of justice and compassion would not approve. But for. the Communists and Anarchists' and the Maoists and the Weathermen and all other infinitely branching groups of left-wing radicals who have made America the world's scapegoat, the book is really bad news. M. Revel's thesis ~s, quite simply, that social revolution of any real kind is unthinkable without a combination of political freedom and economic elbowroom and that the only country in the world in which the~e conditions prevail are, precisely, the United States. The much needed '''revolution'' of the 20th century which will allow technological man to come to terms with his fantastic power, his promise of affluence and his total planetary interdependence can only begin in one countryand that is America. Not a Hell-Hole One cannot, in a short column, give all the reasons for this total rejection of the typical leftwing image of America as an imperialist hell-hole, oppressing its own minorities and carrying war around the world in pursuit of the almighty dollar. But three of M. Revel's reasons seem to me to be of very great interest, especially to the Christian citizen. The first is the issue of race. God in His wisdom created at least five versions of the _single species, man. Some He made yellow, some brown, some black and another by no means major group he made a sort of pinkygrey which they are pleased to call white - an odd idea when you consider that .probably .the only time at which a man is truly white is when he is a corpse. None of these groups finds it easy to live with others. Black .men throw .brown men out of East Africa. Brown Indians of the North despise the blacker' Tamile of the South. The Chinese 'solved the problem for 2,000 years by simply not admitting anyone else existed. The Japanese drove their few miserable whites-the "hairy Ainus"-into their far North. And what the white man has done to virtually everyone else makes up the horrendous colonial record of the last four centuries.

uniquely radical in speed and extent. Of course, it is imperfect. Of course, it has a vast way to go. But the. whole force of law is behind it. Most of the educated young are behind it. The growing power of the vote is behind it. In more and more areas, it is strictly irreversible. In a small planet where God's children of every race and color must co-exist or perish, the radical. racial change visible in America is one of the possible pointers to human survival. Power of Vote

The power of the vote is a second clue to the American revolution. While a group of elderly bureaucrats . without a new thought since 1928 rule Russia and no political mechanism ex.ists to change one of them, the American voters, now enlarged to include a vast contingent of the young, are beginning to remake their Congress. Constitutional figures and frelidoms were -uniquely-one of the remarkable consequences of plural a'nd decentralized power in the Christian MidCile Ages. It is there that parliaments and burgesses and free corporations and the common law all have their roots. Today, the - American republic chiefly represents the continuity of that great tradition. And if our planet is to survive, one thing is certain. It must live under plural and decentralized power. Above all, in America today, the moral revulsion and political will of a free people are putting an end to a tragic and mistaken war. One might have thought America's "military - industrial complex" more powerful than anything since the pyramickbuilding Pharoalls. ·But it has not proved strong enough to bemuse, scare or bulldoze public opinion into acquiescence. What, other vast military power in the world has' ever condemned one of its own officers for a specific war crime? Where else could a 29year-old SOldier-lawyer write to his own President and Commander in Chief, delivering a dignified rebuke and a defense of legal "due process" worthy of a Marshall or a Brandeis? From War to 'Law If our planet is to endure, the human species must find its way from war to law. As M. Revel reminds us, a world under the governance of peaceful procedures is now ·the central revolution of survival itself. America is not there yet. But where were the Russian students protesting the rape of Czechoslovakia? Where were the young Chinese denouncing Mao Tse-tung's total support of West Pakistan's butchery in East Bengal? As a planet, we may not, bloody-minded tribalists that we are, make it through to the year 2,000. But America today gives us more hope of doing so than any of the other giants in our troubled world.

EMMITSBURG (NC)-A silent candlelight march around the Daughters of Charity provincial house here was held by St. Joseph College students protesting a recent decision to close the college in June 1973. St·. Joseph's Board of trustees voted April 12 to close the college after the Daughters of Charity's southeastern provIncial council told the board it could no longer staff the college. A shortage of Sisters for the order's health, welfare and education apostolates in 41 other' houses was cited. Student tuition and fees have doubled at St. Joseph's in the past six years, and the Maryland college is still operating under an annually escalating deficit. "It is regrettable that the severe personnel and financial problems have forced this action· when St. Joseph College is probably at its most vibrant point of development," said Sister Margaret Dougherty, college president. St. Joseph's is one of the oldest Catholic women's colleges in the country, founded in 1809 by Blessed Elizabeth Seton who also established the Daughters of. Charity in· the United States. Student enrollment this year is 518, with.40 Sisters and 31 lay faculty mem1;lers and administra. tors.

inner city schools-St. TheresaVisitation and St. Cecilia's grade schools and St. Martin De Porres High School. Board members of the predominantly black schools staged a peaceful sit-in at Cardinal Dearden's office in early March after their vicariate voted to close down all five of its schools. Cardinal Dearden spoke at an emergency vicariate meeting March 16 and said $180,000 pledged to the vicariate from the· arcdiocesan development fund could be used mainly for its schools. He said another $50,000 would be forthcoming later next year. Those attending the meeting then took another vote and decided to leave open the three schools whose boards were involved in the sit-in.

Order of Christian Unity Studied LONDON (NC)-The ecumenical Order of Christian Unity, inactive for. the past 15 years, has been revived here undf:!r the chairmanship of Lady 'Lothian, wife of the under,secretary of state for foreign affairs and a Catholic. In recasting its policy and' widening its objectives, the organization aims at giving Christians a chance to 0xpress their commitment through their professional skills. It seeks to

~nlist

members of Parliament, university personnel, lawyers, doctors and nurses as members, some of whom will investigate and give 0xpert opinion ,on the ethical, einvironmental and social .problems facing Christians today. Lady Lothian told a press conference here that the Order of Christian Unity' represents "a huge, silent maj'ority of reasonable Christians .Who find themselves somewhe,re between the casual, conventional '~ype' which. goes to church only :;or weddings and funerals and the militant who work within rigid official organizations."

Toursts Returning in Numbers As Capital- Looks to Bicentennial WASHINGTON (NC)-Visitors came here in impressive numbers over the Easter holidays and, because of improved weather, may have seen a better display of the 'cherry blossoms than did those who came for the festival itself a week or so earlier: The visitors undoubtedly took away many varied impressions. Following an estimate that the number of ·tourists who came here in 1970 reached an all-time high of 17-million plus,' the latest influxes were heartening to those directly concerned with attracting visitors to the Nation's Capital. Just a week before Easter - Sunday was the third anniversary of the assassination (April 4, 1968) of Dr. Martin Luther King in Memphis,. Tenn. That tragic event touched' off three days of rioting here, leaving physical scars and ugly feelings. The inflow of tourists dropped off quickly and sharply. . This year the: anniversary prompted a number of looks at what restoration has been ac. complished along the "corridors" on 14th and 7th Streets Northwest and H Street Northeast, where tti'e burning and looting were largely, concentre:tted in 1968. '. The conclusion' was that ,relatively little has be.en don~ to .heal the ravages of those days which so many people want to forget.

KNOW YOUR FAITH Celebration of Death Religio'us, Experience III

Catholics have tended to play •down religious experience. They did not expect to feel th.eir piety, nor did they trust such feelings. With' due exceptions for special occasions, religion for them was business-like and matter of fact. The liturgical renewal began a change of attitude. Worship became more expressive, more experiential.

He is' not one being alongside other beings, 'one object among many He is beyond creation, 'and ,as such He caimot be experienced. , But we· do .experience Him in the signs of His presence in the world.

• THE ANCHORThurs., May 27, 1971

Religious Experienc'e Continued from Page Sixteen ence from a presence to God that is the fruit of faithful love. p'erhaps the mystical sense is a special gift. Or perhaps it depends on psychic structure as' well as grace. , The non-mystical experience of God 'is the, birthright of every Christian. It occurs when God is real to a person. To know and' love God is to experience Him. There is a difference, then, between experiences of God and experience. Experiences are infinitely variable. Believers do .not seek particular experiences of God..They may welcome these peak moments, when God seems very near. moments of great fervor and enthusiasm. But experiences are not as important as ,a bona fide, personal union with the Lord. God is person and subject. It is on this level we experience Him as Christians. This means that we know Him by His revealing Hilmself, by His becoming a "Thou" to us. All persons are known and loved in this way. They open themselves to each other and in this way experience each other. It is no different with God. He has revealed 'Himself to men. He continually reveals himself and "speaks to men as friends and lives among them, so that He may invite and take them into fellowship with Hims~If." (Divine Revelation, n. 2) He is in the world in His Son. 111

The Son is manifested in His People, in the persons who are united in, Him and form the, sacrament of His presence. Through Christ we go to the Father. By faith and love we have contact with the divine persons ,as "thou's," as the Absolute beyond and beneath the objects of human life. But this faith-experience is clothed' in a variety of psychological . phenomena. The latter are the ways we picture God, the ways we translate our depth experience into our own representations and symbolizations. The symbolizations are not nearly as important as the experience' itself. They are not, in fact, a reliable' index to the quality of our faith and love. How do you know you are experiencing God? 'Not so much because you "feel it, or "know!' it, but because your life proves it. The Lord gave this one maxim: "By their fruits you will know them." The effect of God can be found in all things, in the Church and in the world, in religious practices and secular events, in pain <;Ind pleasure, in everything and in nothingness. The measure of His presence is our faith, hope and charity. Discussion Questions L What significance do -you see in the renewal of interest in

Continued from Page Sixteen takes place. Without a living, loving community - first at home, then in the wider com-, munities of school neighborhood, parish-little effective Christian education can be expected' to take place. Young children, older youngsters, and adults can certainly learn the content of Catholic ,teaching and even grow in percontact with Christ sonal through a highly individualistic approach to catechesis. But without the experience of a community of caring, faith-filled Christians, they will miss one of the deepest dimensions of Chris,tian life-namely, that we are called to live as a community, God's people that Christ calls us to union with Him within the community of believers, His Church. The' Second Vatican Council teaches the role of community in Christian life with words that are repeated twice in the Council documents. "At all times and and among every people, God has given welcome to whosoever fears Him and does what is right. It has pleased God, however, to make men holy and save them not merely as individuals, without any mutual bonds, but by making them ·into a single people, a people which acknowledges him in truth and serves him in holi.ness" (Constitution, on the Church, 9; Constitution on the Church in Modern World, 32).

Then he countered with what he considers .the basic appeal of the priesthood: "What, then, has the priesthood to offer a man? Only thisthe opportunity to be another Christ to the people around him. But what could boy or man want more than this? Christ came on earth to worship his father and so sanctify his people. This is what he wants his priest to con-. tinue doing for him."

Mission Director He later accompanied Archbishop Carroll to Vatican City where they explained' the refugee program in an audience with Pope Paul VI. As director of the Miami diocesan Spanish-speaking Apostolate, he coordinated efforts of priests and nuns who worked closely with migrant 'workers. The bishop, too, would at times go into the fields and celebrate Mass with the migrants. As a priest, he was director of the Nombre de Dios (Name of God) mission in St. Augustine, Fla., site of the first Christian mission in the U. S. There he conducted pilgrimages, many of which attracted the area's Spanish-speaking. Now Bishop Fitzpatrick, the son of 'Irish parents, goes to a new diocese where MexicanAmericans make up about 80 per cent of the diocese's 500,000 Catholics.

question, not a social one. He said those who maintain. that abortion is a social question would "disenfranchise men of certain religious convictions." He said that in effect they are saying "that certain citizens may not have a vote on particular issues."

"Anyone who is convinced, be he Catholic or not, that abortion is an attack on human life has the rig!)t and the duty to say so.. Every human person is a mem.ber of society and has a serious . . social responsibility to shape the values of t1'\at society as they are expected in its laws."
