He pointed o~t that a bishop is abqve all else Do pastor shepherd of the flock, father of the­ family of God, apostle 0:1; Jesus Cht:ist. All other powers, authority, privileges and rights flow from his first quality and eharge w.hich' is fatherliness. , And' he is the father who is eKpected' to' be the saint; the 'lJervant 'of his people, the rep-, 'J'esentative 'Christian fro m whom bis',flock takes example.

PASTORAL STAFF: The crozier is a pastoral staff, a sign of jurisdiction. The origin of the crozier is traced to the shepherd's crook. The crozier is carried in the left hand with the crook turned, furward. Bishop Medeiros will use the crozier during Pontifical Mas8 and other ceremonies throughout his Diocese. The complete cro­ zier is atthe left while the crozier crook is above.

Since'the fifth century the the crozier, or pastoral staff, haa been especiaJly emblem-' atic of t~e bishop's office. It

Choice' of Bishop Rests With Pope The eon see rat ion of • bishop is the e x e Ius i v e right of the SovereignPon­ tiff, and cannot be perform­ ed without a mandate explicitly 'given by his Holiness. When the consecration takes place outside of Rome, the nec­ essary documents, known as "'bulls", from the Latin ,word "bulla", signifyipg the leaden fleal attached to them, are sent _ the Bishop-elect, notifying mm of his appointment and au­ thorizing him to select as ,his Cl:onsecrator any orthodox bish­ "" with whom should be' asso­ dated two other bishops as as­ sistant consecrators. If the consecration occurs on Sl day other than a Sunday or file feast of an Apostle, special' permission from the Holy See must be obtained by Apostolic llKief allowing the choice of that alay. The ceremony must take place in a church that is conse­ «ated; that is, the church must be free from all encumbrances and 'solemnl~· dedicated in per­ 1)etuity to the service of God. .

symbolizes his duties as pastor or shepherd of the flock, and is specifically mentioned in th'e ritual of episcopal consecration. The crozier symbolizes the , full~ess of the priesthood with which' a bishop has power to sustain the weak, confirm the wavering and lead back the erring; The cl,lrved upper part of the staff is adorned with sym­ bolic ornaMents. . At first the crozier was' a straight staff but In the 11th cen­ tury tb,e crook was added. By the 13,th century ornamentation was common. The present cro­ zier is in several sections, sep-

arated and boxed when not in

use. It is held in the left hand

just ,below the knob which con­

nects the crook with the staff.

1,'he prayer of blessing says: o God, who does sustain huDlan

weakness, bless this staff; and in

the clemency of Thy merciiul

kindness operate inwardly in the

manners of Thy' servant what he

outwardly designates.

As, Bishop Connolly handed

the crozier to the Bishop at to­

day's consecration; he said:

Receive the staff of the Pas­

toral Office. 90 that in the cor­

rection of vices you may be

lovingly severe; giving judg-

, ment WIthout wrath; softening the minds of your hearers while fostering virtues; in all tranquil­ 'ity not neglecting strictness of discipline.

'CcrdQnal Cushing, Asks for' ~ n,ity Amo~g


BRIGHTON (NC)-Rich­ ard Cardinal Cushing, speak­ ,ing at St. John's Seminary' where 125 students staged a protest demonstration I ast March made a plea for unity, and ' understanding' ,between priests and their bishop and be­ tween older and younger gen­ erations in the' priesthood. Cardinal Cushing, who or­ dained 31 students at the semi­ nary here, tole: the new priests and the seminaric:ns that he had prayed there would be "no es­ trangement between you ·and me, who must work 'so closely together." And noting that' he was eelebr~'ting his 45th anniver-: sary as a priest, he said he' bad come to understand what his predecessor, William Cardi­ nal O'Connell, meailt when he spoke of "the loneliness that surrounds a bishop." "'ork as Team Cardinal Cushing told the ,members of the ordination class and the other seminarians that "a bishop and his priests must undertake their work as a team." He encouraged them to be leaders 1I1 their communities but offered "two qualifications" to this. "First of all," he said, "when you or I take a stand, it shall lIlot be counter to the teaching or traditions of the Church * * * If we are to attempt to tamper or change the substance of, our faith, we are rootless, what we say is without relevance to ,our office-and most of all we act irresponsi bly." His second qualification was that "we must act not only ac­ ~ording to zeal but likew'ise ac­ eording to prudence." "We must be quite certain of the real connection between the work of Christ and whatever, other,work demands a great deal 'of our time and energy," the . 'cardinal said.

: PECTORAL CROSS: Is not a sign of jurisdiction but of order or dignity. The ordinary cross is worn over civilian dress, as well as over the cassock, sim'ar, manteletta and mozzetta. The, pictured cross w~is used by the late Bishop Marx of Brownsville.

In addition to his ring, the distinguishing mark of a bishop is the pectoral cross, which should be worn ex­ posed at 3,11 times.. It is a smali cross' worn on a chain around the neck, and is a sign of dignity. It has been worn by bishops since the 16th century. There are two types of cross; the ordinary and the pontifical. The ordinary cross is gold or gold-filltd, wit h out precious stones; It is generally worn from a gold chain and is used in daily life, over the clerical suit as well as the cassock or other liturgical garments. The' pontifical cross is hol­ lowed to contain relics of s'aints and is also made of gold. It may be studded with diamonds and other precious stones. It is SU9­ pendcd from the neck by a cord of green and gold silk for bi8h­ ops. Other ecclesiastical digni­ taries have different colored , cords, the pope's being gold. In 1927, Most Rev. Emmanuel pusB. Ledvina, late Bishop of Corpus Christi, Texas, gave ref­ uge ·to the exiled priests form

Mexico who fled the persecu­ tion of President Calles of Mexi­ co,' and ih an act of gratitude the Mexican Bishops later pre­ sented the above pictured pec­ toral cross to Bishop Ledvina. Bishop Ledvina, in turn, gave the cross to his ,successor, the present Or<:linary' of Corpus . Christi, Most Rev. Mariano S. Garriga. He presented it to Bish- ' op Adolph Marx, the late Bis.hop of 'Brownsville, whom Bishop Medeiros is succeeding. ,The name of the pectoral cross derives from the Latin, "pectus," breast.

BALTIMORE (NC) -A new scholarship program for needy high school boys has been launched by the Maryland Prov­ ince of the SocietY of Jesus as the result of the sale of 200 acres of land owned by the order for more than 20G years. Sale price was close to $1,000,000. The land, located in Bowie, Md., was originally owned by the Carroll family of Maryland whose members included Arch­ bishop John Carroll, first Cath­ olic Bishop of the United States. It was deeded to the Jesuits in 1756. Under the new scholarship program five b"ys will be chosen ~ach year to attend each of the five Jesuit high schools in the Baltimore province. The value of each scholarship will be $1;600, and in addition to meet­ ing academic standards of the schools, applicants will be re­ quired to show genuine financial need,and potential qualities of leadership in civic, religiolls and social affairs.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall -River-Thurs. June ,~ 1'96&

Who are the Directors

God ·Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen~ IDl.:D. We directors of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith are beggars. This is our vocation. We are the Lazaruses' of the world seated at the gates of the rich, showing the sores al~ leprosy of the Missions to all who eat well and are clothed in purple. We are' the boats into which the Lord steps to visit the Gerasenes and to preach to the multitudes. We are the Simons of Cyrene who have been commandeered into service to help Christ carry the burden of His Cross in space and time. A pastor has his parish, a bishop has his diocese, but the world is our parish. And what a parish! We 'know that if the non-evangelized started a procession in front of the Propaganda building in Rome, and walked day and night, single file, second by second, it would take them 30 years to pass. We know, too, that if the hungry and the impoverished could walk around the earth, over seas as well as land, they would encircle this .planet 25 times. We are the publicans of the Church, the tax collectors, the lineal descendants of those who begged for Rome outside of Rome­ the tax collectors of the Propagation of the Faith. Like Gaul. tile mlssloJl 01 the Church Is divided in three parts: 1) those who produce Z) those who distribute and 3)' those who receive. All three are mentioned in . the sidh chapter 01 st. John's Gospel. Who produces? We Directors 01 The

Society lor the Propagation 01 the Faith

are like the boy who produced the bas­

ketful 01 loaves and fishes, except that

our baskets are Iilled with Iranes, lire.

pesetas, shillings. marks, and dollars.

Who distributes? The Congregation of

the Propaganda distributes. Like the

12 apostles, it hands out our loaves and

fishes to the hundreds 01 thousands on

the hillsides of Africa, Asia, Oceania

and elsewhere. Who receives? The' mis­

sionaries are the receivers. They apply

each year to the Propaganda for the'ir'quota 01 bread and fishes. But the supply is soon exhausted. Later, like the multitude, they cross the I~ke looking for more. .. For this triple service, there were triple satisfactions Ol' blessings in the Gospel for the Lord is never outdone in charity. The apostles, after having distributed the bread and fishes,_ each received a reward: there were 12 baskets given to them,one for each. Next, the receivers, too, were pleased for each one, the Gospel tells us, "had his fill." But what about the boy who had the basket loaded with provisions? We do not even know if he got his basket back. Was he the only one who went away disap­ pointed that day'! No! The Gospel tells us "t}:lat Jesus took the' loaves, looked up to heaven and gave thanks." Of the three, the boy was the one who expressly was described as giving to Our Lord. The distributors received the food from the Lord; the re­ ceivers took their food from the disciples, but the boy gave to the Lord. He did not receive, he gave; and his gift becam~ the occasion for the announcement of the Eucharist. Ours is, therefore, a Eucharistic work. As sacristans of the missionary' Church, we. give bread for the paten, wine for the chalice, loaves and fishes for the hungry. Jesus takes and thanks. And, only' one chapter later in Matthew, there is another multiplication of loaves and fishes. It must be that the Lord sent the, b'oy home ,with his' empty basket, to fill it up again. So out to: the highways and byways we go as beggars. At times it is very difficult; ·there is much opposition and want of sympathy. Even when we give all we have, it is asked: "What are these among so many?" Bu,t over-riding them all is the supreme consolation, namely, it is the Lord Who takes from us. It is the Lord Who thanks, It is the Lord .who says, "God Love You!" . -

WINE OF THE MASS: Two barrels of wine decorated with the coats of Arms o{f Bishop Connolly and Bishop MedeiroS are presented 1;.0 the consecrator at the offertory 9f the Mass. .

Urges Religious Find Vocation Meaning BLACKWOOD (NC) Ninety-nine priests and Brothers were urged to find the modern-day meaning of their vocations, in the light of Vatican Council II, at a charter conference of "key men to guide the' American religious Brother of the futu~e." Father Edward J. Sponga, S.J., Jesuit Maryland provincial, in his keynote address at the Brother Formation Seminar, held at St. Pius X Retreat House here in New Jersey, told those present to look more deeply into the three hallmarks of the' brotherhood~humility,' hidden­ ness and humble service - and make them pertinent to today's world. These· signs are "more valu­ able than ever," be said, "but they need expression in the 'inner city' of society, that place where the God of today's world is found-among the poor and underprivileged." Father Sponga told those at­ tending the two-day seminar that everything we are experi­ encing today k. interrelated to the total Church picture. Ecumenism, birth control, rQ­ dal strife, the liturgy, e.elibacy and the "crisis of obedience,'" were listed by Father Sponga as issu~ which are eontributionc

to the present unrest in the Church, an 'IUlrest, which he

stressed, the religious Brothe~ must understand and confront.

Varied Vestments Of Significance And Symbolism

Schools' Community Assets

Ceiebrating a pontifical "Mass, Bishop Medeiros will wear the deacon's tunic beneath his, chas­ uble., This symbolizes the fact, that 1n the episcopacy all orders, find their culmination: The vestments worn in this way are known as tunicles. For practical reasons they are thin­ ner than the dalmatic and tunic actually worn by deacon and subdeacon at solemn Masses. Even under his biretta and mitre Bishop Medeiros will wear a z,\cchetto or small skullcap. This is a sign of dignity or honor and is purple in color, composed elf eight triangular pieces.

Plans Pilgrimage :BOSTON (NC)-Richard Car­ dinal Cushing of Boston has an­ nounced he will sponsor a 20­ day Pilgrimage to,the Holy Land fFom Oct. 27 ~to: Nov. '15. The tour, open to both clergy and laity, is being organized by the Cardinal Cushing Boston Pil­ grimages, with Brother Gerard :Brassard, A.A., as secretary.

schools" Superintendent Die k said:

TOLEDO (NC) - Speak­ ing at the dedication of a $2­ million Jesuit high school for boys, Bishop George J. Reh­

, With his elevation to the episcopacy, Bishop Medeiros is entitled to wear many vestments of historical inter­ est and symbolism. Among these is the mantel­ letta, a sleeveless garment dat­ ing from the latter half of the 14th century. Reaching almost to the knees, it is open in front and fastened at the neck with a book. Its materials and colors differ with the season of the year and the ecclesiastical rank of the wearer. Bishop ,Medeiros will wear purple and black man­ tellettas, of broadcloth in Winter and merino in Summer. A do­ mestic ,Prelate also wears the purpie manteIJ.etta. A 'titular Bishop, such.. as :Bishop Gerrard, wears the man­ telletta over the rochet, a sur­ plice-like garment with closely fitting sleeves, worn onlY by prelates, with the exception of those other clerics permitted to wear it by special papal indult. The cuffs of the rochet are lined with silk, the color indi­ cating the rank of the wearer. The Pope, for example, has cuffs of white, cardinals have scarlet, and bishops have red except during penitential seasons and times of mourning, when the color is purple.


"We are partners in the mos& important business of our age­ partners in providing for our children the kind of education which will equip them for * Q 0 good, ,responsible living." He pledged cooperatiop to the Jes­ uit educators, returning to a city where they were active in education ~or 38 years prior 00

Prominent members of the Toledo community backed him up, including Frank Dick, super­ intendent of the city's public 1936. schools, and Mayor John W. Pot­ Mayor Potte:: said the Toledo ter. ' 'community' expects the high Welcoming St. John's High school to provide a significant, School to the roster of city portionoi its future leaderl!hip.

TUNIC:, Bishop Medeiros will wear a tunic under the dalmatic and chasuble at pontifical functions. Other vestments of the new Bishop include gloves, which have been worn by bishops at pontifical Masses since the 11th century. Originally used simply to keep the hands warm, gloves have taken on a liturgical char­ acter to such'.an extent that there is a special prayer to be said while putting them on. They are made of knitted silk, ornamented on the back with crosses. They vary ''in color ac­ cording to the other vestments of the Mass; and' ate riot used at Requiem Masses nor on Good Friday. '" The following prayer was re­ cited at today's' consecration at the bestowal 0:" the gloves. Encompass,O Lord.. the hands of this Thy minister with, the clearn~ss of the new Man Who descended from heaven, so that as Thy beloved Jacob,: his hands covered with the skins of young goats, implored and received the paternal benediction, after offer­ ing to his father most agreeable food and drink, so also this man may deserve to implore and to receive the benediction of Thy grace by means of the saving Victim offered by his hand; through our Lord Jesu,s Christ, Thy Son, who in the likeness of sinful flesh, offered Himself to Thee' for us; Otber Vestmen. Other'vestments worn at p0n­ tifical Masses include silk stock­ ings and sandals, both of the liturgical coior proper to the day. 'T,he gremial, an apron-like vestment, is laid on the bishop's lap when be is seated during Mass or when be is conferring

Holy Orders. Originally the gremial served simply to keep the other vestments from being soiled, but it is now often richly ornamented itself. The gremial may be of silk or linen, silk being used at pon­ tifical Masses and linen at cere­ monies such as blessing of holy oils, ashes and palms.

Ushers Ushers for this morning's­ Consecration ceremony in the Cathedral were Robert F. Cog­ geshall, James F., Diskin, Mi­ chael J. McMahon;' Walter F. Deda, Gerald Eagan; William E. White Jr.. James E. Wingate and Edward Blythe.

Antaya 51'., who has. here June 10 to direct a.labor­ worked' in,' the jewelry' industry management training program illl ' . -' ,'. in' Attleboro all his life, played reru. a big part in the finer points qf the making of cross and ring. In. business with his two sons, JolUa r • ~ . and Donald, he has: been instru­ mental in bri,nging the company to its present stage. ~ , The ring was made in, basi-_ Congrat;..Jati(jft$ . cally the same way as the cross: , Heavy gold had to be hand­ shaped, hammered, filed, sawed and finally brought to its finished condition. ' The stone-cutter,' one of the best in the trade. cut the stone so that it would be unique. As it to, a would have. been impractical to, make dies for one ring, it had to be done by hand, including the carving of the ornaments on each side. The stock required yet another skill -- spinning ­ P,e'ate which IS used widely in the sil­ verware ind1,lstry.

Bishop Medeiros' cross and ring were made by Antaya Brothers in, Attleboro, a city long known for its jewelry' craftsmen. The beginning of the industry here dates back to the early 19th Century. Very heavY ,-gold had to be rolled to close dimensions. Both ring and cross required' a piece of gold one-quarter inch thick, five inches wide and six inches long. 'The rough shapes were cut with jewelers' saws and in the case of the cross· tl}e back had to be hollowed out as it woulcl.have' been much to heavy to wear had it been solid. The design of the cross, was then chased in by hand, a skill that is fast disappearing. When the final shape h~d been accom­ plished, 'a back cover had to be applied, carefully, dQne with gold as the bonding medium. Filing, ~anding and fitting had to be done as a small compart­ ment in the back is necessary

NEW YORK (NC)-One of the oldest and most successful ' m'ilitary recreational centers in the country-the Cardinal Spell­ man Servicemen's Club-marked its 25th cnniversary here. Keynote speaker at the anrii­ versary observance at the center was Auxiliary Bishop William .T.

The war plunged the center into increased actIvity, and some

three million men enjoyed its facilities before the fighting ended. The decision to keep the center going after World War II was praised by Bishop Moran, who pointed out that during the Korean conflict another million and a half servicemen visited the center..
