At the same time it recognizes that in some countries the practice. has grown of placing the consecrated bread in the hand of the communicant. In such cases it provides that the conference of bishops may present their reasons for continuing the practice if they should so desire.

Papal Letter Gives Supporft to Cardina; WASHINGTON (NC)-Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle revealed at a news conference that he had offered 41 dissident Washington priests a new chance to return to the exercise of their priestly ministry if they would reconsider the,ir position and accept the Pope's encyclical on artificial contraception. Cardinal O'Boyle also made public a letter he received from Pope Paul VI expressing encouragement and support for the cardinal in the long standing constroversy ~ over the encyclical and exhorting the dissidents to "reconsider" their position. But the dissident priests, led by Father John E.

Bishop to Bless Parish Center

HOUSTON (NC) - Most Rev. Humberto S. Medeiros, Bishop of Brownsville, Texas and former chancellor of the

Bishop Connolly will bless and dedicate the new St. Francis Xavier Parish Center in Hyannis on Monday night at 7:30. Following the ceremonies, an open house will be conducted for parishioners and visitors to the Cape Cod Center. George Cross, chairman of the Selectmen of the Town of Barnstable, of which Hyannis is a part, will speak and then G. Arnold Haynes, contractor, will present the key to the new center to Rev. Msgr. William D. Thomson, pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish. The center will meet the need for CCD classroom and will accommodate educational, social and recreational activities.

Fall River Diocese, praised members ()f Serra International at their 27th convention here for their continued dedication "in the midst of the turmoil of the day." Bishop Medeiros stressed that "not a few Christians are now going lhrough a crisis of faith, that the temptations of this scientific and technological age have been too strong for many good followers of the Crucified and Risen Son of God." He continued: "Even the noblest of human sciences, which is theoiogy, has had in recent years a divisive influence upon many priests and laity when it has been motivated and en IightTurn to Page Six

occasions when Mass may be celebrated, with the local bishops' permission, for small gatherings even outside churches and chapel~. Detailed rules are given, but these do not substantially change the concessions and variations permitted by the publication of the revised Order of Mass last April 6. The readings from the Scriptures are not restricted on these occasions to the usual series but "readings adapted to the 'particular celebration can be chosen from approved lectionaries." Encouragement is given to a period of meditation or instruction prior to Mass in special circumstnaces, as well as to the preparation of intentions for the prayer of the faithful by the individual participants. No changes are made concerning the vestments of the priest or the use of sacred vessels. The other Roman document describes the background of recent requests from episcopal conferences and individual bishops that "the eucharistic bread be Turn to Page Five

Speck Triggers Tax Query WASHINGTON (NC)o:-Tax exemption for Church property! The rash of publicity on the churches and taxes has made many speculate that it would be only a matter of time for this issue to reach the Supreme Court. No one, however, guessed it Under challenge in the Walz would originate with an al- case is the constitutionality of most phantom figure, a re- state laws exempting Church cluse New York lawyer, who property used for religious purmade his challenge not by a flamboyant courtroom appearance but by mail. Not only that but this time honored exemption involving land valued at many millions of dollars is contested by a man owning 638 square feet of Staten Island, bought for $100 and presently taxed at $5.24 a year. Such is the case that is properly known as Walz v. The Tax Commission of New York. Frederick Walz contends that the exemption enjoyed by religious organizations increases his property tllxes and thereby forces him to support churches in violation of the First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution. Walz's arguments were rejected by the state courts of New York but the U. S. Supreme Court has agreed to review the issue.

poses from state taxes. At issue is a tradition dating from colonial times, actually antedating the Federal Constitution. The basic issue centers on the following question: Is there a contradiction between federal constitutional provisions against the establishment of a religion or the use' of public funds for religious purposes and state statutes exempting church property from taxation? The Federal Constitution makes no reference to tax exemption. There was no discussion of the issue in the Constitutional Convention nor in the debates on the Bill of Rights. The historical fact is that at the time of the founding of our country churches were not taxed. After the ratification of the ConstituTurn to Page Eighteen

ing Christians' of them in a rite that recognizes their babyhood. The new baptismal rite for infants, published June 20 by the Holy See, is the first such in the history of the Catholic liturgy. The present ritual, promulgated three and a half centuries ago, is an abbreviation of the rite for the Baptism of adults. Under the new ritual, which goes into effect Sept. 8, parents are given a more active role to play, while godparents continue to have an important part. The responsibilities of both couples are made clear. The chi I d's incorporation through Baptism in the people of .God is given gr~ater emphasis, and the rite is oriented toward the participation of the parish community. The new text, in the words of Father Annibale Bugnini, C.M., secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, is "much gentler." It understands the infant's "real condition." Gone are the long interrogations to which the baby-cooing or crying or sleeping-:-has been subjected "as if he should or could reply" (again to quote Father Bugnini). Gone is the hairraising exorcism. And though the book of the ritual still offers the traditional renunciation of Satan, . his pomps and his work-which always rang discordantly when addresed to a child fresh from the hand of God-there is an alternate choice. This alternate renunciation is "more in harmony with the modern mind," Father Turn to Page Five

Institute at Stonehill Asks Awareness of Black Needs


"As an organization professing to be universal, extending to all areas of the world, encompassing all peoples, the Catholic Church must demonstrate its awareness of the black man's needs and demands." This is the essence of a position paper presented by the Black Religious at- priests, black Sisters and black with black people. tending the fourth annual Brothers The paper concluded with the Brothers Institute at Stone- observation that unless black

hill College here in North Easton. The paper was drawn up by a caucus of 12 black Brothers among the 200 representing 50 congregations in attendance at the institute. It was presented at the closing session by Brother Regis Lake, S..-\., of the Atonement Friary of Cumberland in nearby Rhode Island.

Freedom to Mature Two questions considered by the caucus concerned means of increasing black vocations and means of increasing black awareness ,in the religious life and communities. The black Brothers feel that response to their questions generally centered around the need for realization among all Catholics of the difference existing in the cultures of black and white even the ugh they speak the same language, share· the same coun· try and look for similar goals. The Brothers' formation systems were cited as an example of the disparity where the pres· ent system is based upon white middle·class values which literally force black religious aspirants to adopt white values at the expense of adulterating their own. The answer to this probe lem, th~ black Brothers feel, lies in permitting the black Religious freedom .to mature in his religious life in his own 'black awareness. Fostering Vocations A mid-Western Franciscan Friary, which uses African-style vestments designed to orient black clerics and Brothers in religion in terms of their own culture, was cited as an example of an environment conducive to black religious formation. More of this type of innovation should be encouraged, the paper said. Forcing Out Blacks Brothers, whose pI'del' has had greater contact with black youth than that of most religiou'i communities, strongly suggested that black Religious become more involved in the housing problem apostolate. Such work among the laity, they are convinced, could provide exposure to an awareness of the needs of black Catholics while simultaneously stimulating a fostering of vocat.ions. Noting the fact that· the Church has placed ethnic-related over other ethnic prelates groups, Italians with Italians, Germans with Germans, Irish with Irish, the black Brothers pointed out how little has been done in terms of placing black Jos~phite

E[ffid E~pe[fimenh211 5cchool lP'l'ogB"@m i~ N<ew J®w§er C@mmuW1loif'y VERONA (NC) - An experimental program with wide reIigious backing ended here with the revelation that the Verona board of education would not renew a contract with the Newark board of education for schooling up to 40 black children from a poverty area. in Newark. Spokesman said the program was being discontinued because it did not look as if the Verona system could handle more than 19 of the Newark children in the 1969-70 year. Privately, . however, board members admitted that the progranl," which tfiey termed a so-. ciological and academic success, was being ended because of the opposition it engendered. When. first proposed in April, 1968, the plan drew public support from the Verona Clergy Club, the Verona Council for Inter-Religious Activity and ministers from six of the seven churches in the community, including Our Lady of the Lake Catholic church. Opponents of the proposal brought suit, however, organized Citizens for Fair Decisions and elected ~n opposition candidate to the school board in February, leaving the majority with only a 3-2 control and throwing public board meetings into turmoil. Although the program was .experimental, supporters indicated that it would be continued if experience proved it to be successful. When it was begun last Fall, 38 children from grades one through five from Hawthorn Avenue school in Newark were bused to three of the four -elementary schools in Verona daily. Early this year the courts dismissed the suit challenging the . practice. The program at a cost of about $1,000 per pupil, was funded by Newark and by the state and federal governments. Above Average A preliminary report issued in late June indicated that a majority of the -parents of Newark children, and a majority of the Verona parents who took the children into their homes for lunch, thought highly of the program.

Directives on Home Mass, Communion Continued from Page One placed in the hand of the faithful who communicates himself by placing it in his mouth." The development of the present usage, now prescribed by custom and confirmed by the instruction, is explained as arising from a better understanding of the Eucharist, as well as a sense of reverence and humility so that the minister (priest or deacon) properly "places the particle of consecrated bread on the tongue of the communicants." While acknowledging the an-

tiquity of the other usage which some wish to restore, the instruction from the new Congregation for Divine Worship insists that the usual practice does not detract from the personal dignity of the communicants. It also cites the results of a survey taken among all the bishops of the Latin rite.. The response of the bishops opposed (1,233 to 882) any change in the present usage, even by way of experiment in small communities (1,215 opposed, 751 favorable). Decision Against In the light of this reaction

Thurs., July 3,

., ., ., .,

It pertains to the bishop to examine accurately the circumstances in order to judge whether in each case pastoral reasons dictate a Eucharistic celebration, or if instead it would be better to suggest another religious celebration.

The special gatherings for which permission can be given to celebrate the Eucharist are: Gatherings for a retreat, religious or pastoral. studies, for one or more days,or for'meetings of the lay apostolate or similar associations. Meetings for pastoral motives in certain sections of the parish. Gatherings of the faithful who live far away from the' parish church and who periodically come together to enrich their religious formation. Gatherings of young people or of persons of the same condition or formation, who periodically come t.)gether for religious formation or instruction adapted to their mentality. Family gatherings around the' sick or aged who cannot leave their house and who otherwise

would never participate in the Eucharistic celebration. Included with these are friends and those who look after the sick. Those gathered together for a wake or for some other exceptional religious occasion.




The permission to celebrate the Eucharist for special gatherings, outside of a sacred place, can be given only by the local Ordinary. In cases of celebrations in private houses or institutions, he will give his permission only if the group gathers where there is no chapel or oratory and only if this i::; a fitting place for such a celebration. Celebrations in bedrooms are always excluded. =!:




No Mass may be considered as an exclusive action of a particular group, but as a celebration of the Church, in which the priest, exercising his office presides as a minister of the Church over t:1P. entire liturgical action.

WASHINGTON (NC) Nearly a fourth of the membership of the U.S. House of Representatives has ap-





A ;nore complete and perfect participation in the celebration is had with Eucharistic communion. Fot communion under both species the disposition in the Instruction on Eucharistic Worship must be adhered to (cf. n. 32). This type of communion is excluded when Mass is celebrated in houses. Giving commun-. ion to oneself and receiving it in hand are likewise excluded. For celebrations of the Eucharist for special gatherings outside of a sacred place, especially in private houses, these conditions are required: The faculty may not be given for Sundays and holy days of obligation. The necessity of obtaining the

permission of the local Ordihary should always be kept in mind. If the celebrant is not the pastor, the pastor should be notified. These, then, will give a report to the bishop concerning the celebrations. The norms for Eucharistic fast should he observed; in no way can the Eucharist be preceded by an agape. If one should follow, it will not be at the same table on which the Eucharist is celebrated. Bread for. the Eucharist remains unleavened bread, the only kind permitted In the Latin Church and not without grave reasons. It will be confected in the customary form. The celebration should not occur late in the night. Even in gatherings with family ties no one is to be excluded who desires to participate.

* ::



The furnishings of the altar (cross, altar cloth, candles, Missal, purificator, corporal, hand towel and communion plate), the sacred vessels (chalice, paten, pyx), the vestments (amice, alb, cincture, stole and chasuble) should be, in number, form and quality, as desired by present legislation. :i:


* ::

Those who wander from this line, even if it is alluring, finish in creating bewilderment in the faithful. At the same time they are killing and rendering sterile their sacerdotal ministry. .

This Instruction, prepared at the request of higher authority by the Sacred. 'Congregation for Divine Worship, will regulate every type of Mass celebrated in special gatherings until the Apostolic See disposes otherwise.

Excerpts From Instruction on Giving Communion In view of the state of the Church as a whole today, the present manner of distributing Holy Communion must be observed, not only because it rests upon a tradition of many centuries but especially because it is a sign of reverence of the faith toward the Eucharist. The practice in no way detracts from the personal digr,lity of those who approach the great sacrament, and it is a part of the prepar~lt.ion needed for the most faithful reception of the Lord's body. 'J 0:0 .~ ~. In addition. this manner of communicating, which is now to be considered as prescribed by custom, gives more effective assurance that Holy Communion will be distributed with the appropriate . reverence, decorum, and dignity; that any danger of profaning the Eucharistic species, in which "the whole and entire Christ, God and man, is substantially contained and permanently ;Jresent in a unique way", will be avoided; and finally that t.he diligent care which the Church has always commended

for the very fragments of the consecrated bread will be maintained: "If you have allowed anything to be lost, consider this a lessening of your own members."



After he had considered the observations and the counsel of those whom "the Holy Spirit has



to ImlPlemerJilt Approved ChalTJge§

placed as bishops to rule" the Churches, in view of the seriousness of the matter and the importance of the arguments proposed, the Supreme Pontiff judged that the long received manner of ministering Holy Communion to the faithful should not be ' changed."

The core of the ceremony, consisting of the administration of the sacrament itself, is immediately preceded by the blessing of the baptismal water and by the renunciation and profession of faith (uttered on behalf of the child by the parents. godparents and entire congregation). It is followed by the anointing and the giving of the white garment and a candle lighte.d from the paschal candle. The rite is concluded before the altar with the Our Father and the blessing of the priest, bestowed separately upon the newly baptized, the parents and all present.

pealed to President Nixon for a formal expression of concern "over discrimination against Roman Catholics in Northern Ireland." Speaker John W. McCormack and 100 other representatives of both parties signed a letter to the President saying they are "disturbed that intolerance and discrimination are encouraged by and rooted in the laws of Northern Ireland." The signers asked the President to relay this concern to Prime Minister Harold Wilson of Great Britain and Prime Minister James Chichester-Clark of Northern Ireland. Fear for Safety Rep. Philip Burton, D-Cali.f.. who with Rep. Thomas P. O'Neill Jr., D-Mass., solicited the signatures, told a news conference the appeal was made public because of fears for the safety of Irish Civil Rights Association members. Burton said the group was to rally at Strabane, a predominantly Catholic area, for a planned peaceful march to Derry. He said "we are concerned that they will have violence visited on them by the Northern Ireland police." Burton said the signers' concern was aroused by last Fall's violence in Northern Ireland. where, he said, laws and customs effectively limited land ownership by Catholics, barred them from :iobs and deterred them from voting in local elections.

NIAGARA FALLS (NC)-The Carmelite Fathers of the Canadian-American province elected a "committee of eight" to set up commissions and involve all members of the province in carrying out the changes voted at their provincial chapter meeting here in Ontario. The committee is also charged with studying the role and composition of a senate; the extension of a definitory (council); a personnel board; an institute for study of Carmelite community life, and a structuring of the provincial chaper itself.

Infant Baptism Rite Continued from Page One Bugnini said, and centers around Christian aversion to evil. Warnings by t.he minister are directed at the parents and godparents and congregation, to engage their responsibility. With regard to the child, the minister emphasizes that grace is a sheer gift. The new baptismal rite begins with the ceremonial welcome of the infant or infants and their family at the door of the church. There follows t.he liturgy of the word, which sheds light on the meaning of Baptism, That finishes with a common prayer of intercession for the child or children to be baptized.


Express Concern Over Situation In Ireland

from the bishops, Pope Paul VI decided against the petitions already presented. The concluding section of the instruction, however, explains that where the "new" practice has already developed, the conferences of bishops may vote on the matter and their Jecision would be submitted to t.he Holy See. The Holy See in turn "will weigh the matter (of introducing the usage of Communion in the hand) with care, keeping in mind the bonds which exist between the several local Churches among themselves and with the entire Church."

Excerpts From Instruction on Special Masses Pastoral care is directed also to special gatherings, not with the scope of engendering a tendency towards a separate or privileged class but with the hope of meeting special needs and of deepening and intensifying the Christian life according to the needs and the preparation of the persons in these gatherings. It achieves this by taking advantage of the opportunities which emanate from a common spiritual or apostolic commitment and from the desire for mutual edification.

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs., July 3, 1969

Universal View It is not too often that a person or a group gets a

unique idea. This is evidenced by the recent Instruction from Rome regarding Masses for special groups. Encouragement is given for Masses offered on the behalf of special conditions or classes of people - students, the aged, specific guilds or organizations. And the many variations that people have thoug~t up for these Masses have likewise been considered' by those in Rome. . The conclusion drawn by the Instruction is tnat the Mass belongs to the whole Church community and so it must keep its character as the offering of the whole Church and cannot tie disjointed and changed at the whim of an indivdual celebrant or at the wish of a small group. There is much opportunity - in readings, in the homily, in preliminary explanations, in the prayer of .the faithful - for the Mass to assert its relevance to a specific group. But the Mass always and ever must remain the Sacrifice of Christ and of His whole Church. It is'not a drama that can be shifted and changed to suit the feelings of the moment of an'individual or group. It is THE drama of Christ offering Himself in union with His Church throughout the world. The Mass is a means of union of people with God in and with and through Christ. It should draw those participating closer to one another, true, but not at the expense of alienating them and separating them from all others. For it also draws those participating closer to every other person in the Chur~h and in the world in the deepening of belief in the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of all men. Because the whole matter is one of faith, of belief in God as the Creator and Father of all, in the belief in Christ as Brother to every person,. in the. belief路 that every person' in the world is brother and sister to Christ and to every other pesron. This is the universal and truly catholic view that one brings to Mass and finds strengthened through Mass..

Old Glory-


A name for the American flag is Old Glory. It is said to have received this name from the ancient custom of sailors who would present to their skipper, at the outset of a voyage, a flag folded in the form of a trianglea custom observed to this very day. The flag would be , raised over the ship and dedicated to the Trinity, to the Father and Son and Holy .Spirit. And as it unfurled the sailors would acclaim, Glory, Glory, Glory. This, thread of God and religion has been in the American heritage from the very b~ginning. The very first 'constitution drawn up in this nation, that of the Mayflower Compact in 1620 signed. in Massachusetts Bay off Plymouth, was based on God. And the United States is the one' country. in the world that was deliberately founded, in its Declaration of Independence, in its national Constitution and those of its' States, as a nation holding fast to belief in God as the Author of all men and of the rights . of men. No one in this nation would want to force belief in God upon the fastidi<;>Us atheist. But, likewise, no atheist should be able to force the posture of public atheism upon the majority of those in this nation who believe in God. No atheist should be allowed to banish from the American scene a national heritage that is inextriCably linked with belief in God and in the rights of men deriving from God.

ulty censure of the college president and acting dean, and criticized the faculty for not affording the two administrators the same right of due process they claim for themselves. The board also rejected three of five students demands stemming from a campus boycott last April. A student demand for permission to live off campus was accepted. In an apparent compromise move, the board announced the appointment of Dr. John J. Dillon, Jr., as acting vice president in路 charge of "internal" affairs at the college. The board said the appointment would free the president, Msgr. Hugh J. Phillips, for "representative work in external affairs." Officially, Dillon succeeds Father Paul V. Redmond who asked to be relieved of administrative duties to return to philosophy teaching. Voted Censure Sources speculated that Dillon, a member of the English department, might effectively take over the running of the college while Msgr. Phillips engaged in public relations work. The board said it was rejecting the censure because of the lack of due process in the faculty proceedings. Board members expressed dismay that the faculty did not afford the college officials the same privileges it advocates for the tr~aUnent of its own grievances. The board also said it had considered the five student demands 'arising from last Spring's campus 'boycott and the recommendations of Msgr. Phillips and a college committee formed to study them.

Bishop Medeiros Continued from Page One ened not by faith but by the rationalism of the times. "It has happened and it is happening that many in' the Church are foilowers of the popular names among contemporary theologians and not of the Son . of God." Stresses Strong Faith Theology is important, the Brownsville Bishop continued, but it is not a substitute for faith. "A good priest is and must always be a man of strong faith," Bishop Medeiros said. Bishop Medeiros cautioned Serrans not to be discouraged by the deciine in vocations in recent years but to take it as "an incentive to pray more fervently, to sacrifice more selflessly and to love more ardently the mission assigned to you by Christ Himself."

Atmosphere of. Hate and Retribution It is

true that, many local churches in the South - even Catholic churches - practiced segregation. It is true also that many local churches in the North practiced de facto segregation. However; it is true also that churchmen are successfully ending this prqctice. One has only to reflect on the courageous late Archbishop Rommel of New Orleans. There may be locales, where churchmen are not moving as fast as some would have them. Also, there may be isolated incidents (,I' indifference. and neglect.


However, in the total scope of the' historic reality of the religious bodies in the United States, Mr. Forman is not justi-路 fied to' create such a climate of hostility and violence. The churches of this country must work together in concrete and determined action to see that every man, regardless of his color or ethnic group, lives in dignity and true freedom. But, this must be done in the spirit of peace and brotherhood -not in an atmosphere of hate and retribution. Mr. Forman's manifesto will

not achieve this end as it presently exists. It will "only serve to widen the void that he supposedly seeks to bridge. It will also endanger the constitutional freedom of religious expression that so many have died to preserve. May our heritage from the past provide, guidance to the problems of the present and encouragement to strive for an understanding that is fair and just and the imperative necessity of defending our freedom to worship God in peace and harmony.

Jersey Nuns Reject S'ecular Dress Plan

CALDWELL (NC) - The Dominican Sisters of Caldwell believe that the wearing of secular dresses by members of their Religious community would be an "expensive digression from the serious concerns of the Church," While nuns in some other c(~mmunities have already adopted, or are considering, the wearing of secular dresses, the New Jersey Sisters-at a general chapter meeting - quickly rejected the secular dress propos~I, without debate, Mother Dolorita Absbro praised the community's degree of stability in the post Vatican Council period, noting that only 34 professed Sisters have been dispensed of their vows in the last six years. There are presently about 400 professed nuns in the Dominican Sisters of Caldwell, with .:lbout 100 more junior professed Sisters.

Study Establishment Of Parish Councils

MARY HALLORAN, R.N. "We're more and more involved in programs outside the hospital. Today, to give the care that's needed, you have to be really involved in the community. "Because of growth, we have to be able to utilize the nurses we have to the utmost capacity. We're developing nurses as team lead,ers, supervising practical nurses, aides and orderlies. "We have unit managers, who relieve nurses of a good many of their non-nursing functions so they can get back to bedside nursing and give the best possible patient care," As she speaks, Mary Halloran's enthusiasm for her chosen career lights her face. It's hard to imagine her being anything but a nurse. Today, weighed down somewhat by her large office and big desk and phone calls and mountains of administrative :work, Mary Halloran still finds time "to get out on the floors and visit the patients and talk to the nurses," She also finds time for other assorted duties-like supervising the events of the Catholic Nurses' Guild, an organization devoted to the spiritual and professional betterment of Catholic nurses of the area.

SAGINAW (NC) Bishop Francis F. Reh has promised there will be a continuing study leading to establishment of parish councils in the Saginaw diocese. In an address sponsored by the Saginaw Association of Laymen (SAL) at St. Paul Seminary, the Michigan prelate stressed the necessity of a common effort to, come up with proper guidelines for parish councils-but added "this does not mean councils can't be formed now," "We are not engaged in delaying tactics," the bishop said. ' "If you .feel you can set up one now, well and carefully, go ahead." Bishop Reh, former rector of Rome's North American College, said a parish council should be marked by openness, a real representation of the parish community, and by freedom of action.

P"opose Chapel Of Astronauts

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall, July 3, 1969

Asks Aid in Id,entifying

CAPE CANAVERAL (NC) Five Episcopalian and four Cath· olic laymen with the ap'proval of their bishops have proposed building at Cape Kennedy Space Center here a million dollar in· terfaith Chapel of the Astronauts, to be paid for by public. subscription. Edwin F. Trevor, executive secretary of the sponsor group, known as Chapel of the Astronauts, Inc;, said the men who conceived the idea of an interfaith chapel were inspired by the reading of Genesis during the Apollo 8 flight last Christmas. The interdenominational house of worship, although essentially Christian inorientation,will be designed to accommodate Jewish services, Trevor said. Target date for opening of the chapel has been set for Christmas Eve, 1969, the anniversary of the Apollo flight.

Original Home Decoration P,ossible on Small Budg,et

Copit'O~ Educator

Aword Winner

By Marilyn Roderick

WASHINGTON (NC) - The president of the Washington Archdiocesan Board of Education has received the 1969 Faith and Service award from Kappa Gamma Pi, national Catholic college women's honor society. Mrs. Theresa B. Posey, principal of La Salle Elementary School here, has been Cited for her dedication and service in interfaith and interracial activities, carried out especially with the archdiocesan Office of Urban Affairs and the Sodality Union of Washington.

My first impression upon entering the apartment was of the striking use of color, my second was admiration for the gal who had decorated it. The gal who is the proud owner of the apartment is Mrs. Artemisia (Artie) Anderson of St. Anthony's parish in Yes, this is the amazing part of Fall River, part-time secrehome-love, not money, tary and full-time mother of Artie's has created it. "Oh I paid $3 four children. I had heard for that, $12 for that," she com-

Artie had done a spectacular job in redoing this third floor apartment in one of the older Victorian homes, that was at its peak when the cotton industry was king. But no amount of advance "wordof-mouth" publicity had prepared me for the beauty of each room and of the individual pieces in those rooms all lovingly chosen and refinished by Artie. Antiquing and refinishing furniture is her hobby and in this charming group of rooms she has a suitable setting for her finished work. French Kitchen The kitchen is the first room you enter and its white plaster walls and bright yellow. and black accents give it the look of a French country setting. Artie explainp.d that she hadn't really finished all the furniture and built-ins that she wanted for this room but to this columnist's eye it w~s perfect as it was. At the tall old-fa:;hioned windows were:the. shl,ltters that. she had found in the eves of the house and through hours of patient refinishing had restored to their original beauty. Plants of every description filled these windo\Vs, adding just that right touch of, greenery. As we left the kitchen we en'tered a hall-way dining area that contained some beautiful pieces of refinished furniture, including a large chest with a matching hanging shelf over it done in tones of blue. This area is papered in a red and blue pattern in soft colors that looks as if it had come from the lining of an old East Indian tea chest during the whaling era. Two ladder backed red chairs stand on either side of the crest and opposite it is a satin smooth table and chairs, with caned seats (Artie also does her own caning). Each room that we entered was more perfect than the last.' Artie's bedroom is dominated by the handsomest brass bed imaginable - one that this treasure hunter had picked up for a pittance, had re-brassed for $30 and is now worth in the vicinity of $500.

Rehabilitate Bishop In Czechoslovakia VATICAN CITY (NC) - The Vatican City daily newspaper has reported "with lively satisfaction" the rehabilitation of former Auxiliary Bishop Stanislav Zela of Olomouc, Czechoslovakia. Bishop Zela, L'Osservatore Romano said, was among a group of laymen and clergy rehabilitated by a court in Czechoslovakia. The newspaper said they had been unjustly convicted in 1950, and that all charges against them has' been declared unfounded by the rehabilitation court.

mented as we toured the rooms and when she told me that her most expensive find was a fiftysome dollar chest in her living room, I couldn't believe my ears. The Goodwill Stores and unlikely junk and antique shops were Artie's hunting,grounds for fine objects to redo and her sharp collector's eye can spot fine lines and beautiful workmanship even in a piece that has had its beauty hidden under years of bad paint jobs and neglect. Seeing the possibilities of individuality in even the most unexpected spots, Mrs. Anderson has decorated the closet door in her ll-year-old son John's room with a full door British flag, using red racing stripes, blue paint and white contact paper as the medium. A perfectionist to the most minute detail, she even added this combination to a clear light over the door and called it a Ben Franklin lamp. Girls' Room Every room in the house just bubbles over with thi!\ attractive girl's talent,1 and nowhere is this more evident than in the large room occupied by Marybeth, 13, Martha, 8 and Jennifer, who is almost 7. Brigh.t shades of orange; yellow and green have been picked up from the paisly printed wallpaper &nd carried over into even the smallest accessory, even the paper Tiffany shade that covers the overhead light fixtures. Artie again commented that this room was far from what she wanted it to be, but I couldn't help answering that to me each room looked like a page out of a magazine. If this tour of Artie's apartment taught me anything, it taught me that one can't bemoan what her house looks like because of lack of m0l1ey. This girl has taken possibly the smallest furniture budget imaginable and ended up with a home that a shelter magazine would be proud to photograph. Also I must add that this gal has missed her vocation - she's a born home decorator!

Mexican-American Problems Studied SAGINAW (NC)-The Michigan Catholic Conference, organization 'of the state's Catholic bishops, is increasing its efforts to improve living and working conditions for Michigan's more than 200,000, Mexican-Americans. MCC's ad hoc committe on Mexican ~ American, problems, headed by Bishop Francis F. Reh of Sagh1aw. met here with representatives of La Raza Unida, a statewide coalition of Spanishspeaking organizations, and' discussed what the Church can do to help Mexican - Americans achieve dignity and equality. La Raza Unida representatives said in the past the Church has been concerned primarily with the spiritual needs of MexicanAmericans, and urged that it now direct greater attention to the "",ultiple social problems confron:ting the Latin community in Michigan."

Time' Cardinal Heenan Says Life of Church 'Has Never Been So Healthy' ROCHESTER (NC)-John Cardinal Heenan of Westminster told piocesan priests here that although "things never have been worse, in our lifetime, in 'the Church," in many ways, the life of the Church "has never been so healthy." The English cardinal conducted two retreats for priests here at the invitation of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. He was en route to London, after a visit with Westminster priests serving as missionaries in Peru and Chile. Cardinal Heenan said that although the Church establishment "is in a very pitiable state," there are bright hopes. "By comparison with other periods in the Church's history, we're really in a glorious age. Consider the confusion in the Church after some of the other councils. "We must keep some sense of proportion," he continued: "We are 1,000 times better off than in past centuries." The cardinal based his retreat conferences on the Second Vatican Council's decree on the priestly life and ministry. He said: "Priests have a special obligation to perfection." "Because we must be the living instruments for the sanctification of the family of God,"

Cardinal Heenan said, "priests must discipline their lives to a much higher spiritual plane of perfection than even the finest of the laity." Despite the bitterness of internal controversy distressing the body d the Church and the current "rash of defections" of many clergy and Religious, the cardinal said he believes the post-counbl era is "a happy time." "If it had not been for the (Second) Vatican Council, coming precisely when it did, we might have ended up pretty much as badly as our predecessors in the 16th century, when the Protestant Reformation broke the Church," he asserted, "I believe that is why God allowed the council to be called."

He said the commission has not yet filed its report with thE! Holy See. The commission, appointed as a result of the order's appeal to Rome, initially ordered the separation of those nuns desiring to maintain the traditional habit and way of life and those who wished to make modern innova路 tions. About 450 of the more than 500 Sisters chose the experimental group. The commission said the Sisters would be permitted to con路 tinue their experimentation for "a .reasonable time." The commission planned to study the reo newal program and make recommendations to the Holy See as to final decisions about the order.

CARACAS (NC)-The Christian Left group has occupied the Caracas church of Santa Teresa here in Venezuela to press for Church renewal and "pry the bishops out of their conservative position." Forty-five youths arrested durthe ensuing melee were released by police at the request of the Church authorities. Some of the youths had reached the pulpit after the pastor, Father Hortensio Carrillo, pleaded in vain for order. The group, which also calls itself ''The People of God on the March," says it seeks a faster pace in following the Second Vatican Council directives for Church renewal and the guidelines on social reform issued by the Latin American bishops at Medellin, Colombia, in 1968. "This is a movement against those Church leaders who do not follow, or stall on, the decisions of the ecumenical cOflncil, the second general assembly of the Latin American bishops (at Medellin) and Pope Paul'.s encyclical, The Development of Peoples," said a spokesman for the Christian Left. About 20 priests are reported to have joined the group, made up mostly of university and highschool students and a few workers.

Quiet, Successful Louisville Archdiocese Builds Mission Churches With Contributions

CLEVELAND (NC) The Cleveland diocese has announced formation of a 65-member commission, which is to be "an instrument of major social changes" in the areas of race, poverty, peace and human relations. The permanent, widely representative Diocesan' Commission 'on Catholic Community, Action includes priests, Religious and laymen reflecting a broad range of viewpoints and organizations, among them the controversial Christians Who Care. CWC, a coalition of members of several peace and civil rights groups, criticized diocesan officials early this ,year for alleged lack of involvement in social projects. Some CWC members took part in an unauthorized Mass in the St. John's cathedral last January which resulted in the arrest of two priests on charges stemming from the incident.

Cardinal Cooke Cites Encouraging EI'ement arll Student Values JAMAICA (NC)-Terence Cardinal Cooke of New York said in an address here the "most en.couraging, element in student values today is the search for the sacred, and here, students are playing a truly prophetic role." Cardinal Cooke delivered the keynote address at the commencement exercises of St. John's University here. He was • also awarded an honorary degree 'by the university. The cardinal said "the young are indicating in word and in act that man is truly, in his deepest nature, religious." They are, he went on, "plaintively asking a civilization which is materialistic in fact if not in theory, if there is not more to life than the size of one's income, or automobile, or swimming pool." Discussing the concept of life, Cardinal Cooke said, "it "alienation" in contemporary can be good to be alienated, in the sense that we become more aware of our need for God and each other. It is the human condition to be alienated. Sense of Alienation "The very definition of any believer is one who is a,way from his true home," he continued. "In this life we are pilgrims, not permanent residents. Our restlessness, our yearning for perfection, our ultimate dissatisfaction with any material thing are all signs of our alienation, implanted by God Himself " A sense of alienation, the cardinal asserted, "can lead to positive, valuable, even prophetic insights..We must not refuse to listen only because voices we hear are young vOices; we must not become encrusted and .immobile," he said. • "We who are older in time," Cardinal Cooke said, "have a duty to our own experience to tell it 'like it was,' and always will be ...

Father John Flynn, archdiocesan director of education and study director, said the study has three purposes: Identifying archdiocesan priorities and resources in such fields as education at all levels, administration, worship, communications, ecumenism, charities, social action and mission work. Drawing up a detailed plan of religious education for all age levels. Preserving quality Catholic education through such means as sharing personnel, consolidation, reorganization and improved financing. A central planning committee has been named for the study. Its 32 members represent various interest groups in the archdiocese. Area and parish planning committees will-also be formed and will meet in the Fall.

that it is the historical source of the very virtues that are held most dear by the young; that if it sho.uld appear irrelevant, it is only because Christian norms are exactly the norms taken over by the, state in its educational, welfare and civil rights programs . . . . That 'instant paradise' must always remain an i1\usion; that outrage may be the necessary origin of reform but never a permanent state; that reasonable men demand answers, not obscenity, violence, or rhetoric in reply to the question, 'What must be done?" The cardinal concluded: "There are two great elements in any society-its permanence and its progression. The just society tries to keep the two in balance. At different times, depending on circumstances, it will emphasize one or the other."

WORCESTER (NC)-Stability may b~ the most important qual· ity of Christ for priests to imitate "in our moment of history," John Cardinal Wright said here. Cardinal Wright made the comment in a homily delivered during a concelebrated Mass in St. Paul's Cathedral here, his last public appearance before leaving for Rome to take up his post as prefect of the Congregation of the Clergy. Cardinal Wright, formerly bishop of Pittsburgh and first bishop of Worcester from 1950 to 1959, said a Jewish survivor of a nazi concentration camp recalled later that priests stood up best under imprisonment there. "Why?" he asked. "They' had never studied counseling. They were ''lOt psychiatrists. All they knew was the Epistle (from the Mass of Jesus Christ the High Priest) and the Gospels and the Scriptures and the concept of the priesthood contained there. "But when all others went mad, they stayed sane. There was no question of roles in their minds. It didn't cross their minds lo quit because they knew exactly who they were and they knew exactly why they were there and they made themselves useful to 'men and pleasing to God."

Quit Hospital Bon Secours Sisters Cite Difference In Phi'losophy BALTIMORE (NC)-A lingering "difference in philosophy" was given as the reason for seven Bon Secours Sisters' termination of work at Good Samaritan Hospital. Differences between - them and the administration were not specified, but termed as an "unworkable" situation by Mother St. Urban, provincial. . The three-way hospital "experiment," of eight months, which involved the Baltimore archdiocese, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions,' and the Bon Secours Sisters jointly running the hospital for those with chronic illnesses ended officially with a joint statement. It said: "Representatives of Good Samaritan Hospital and the Sisters of Bon Secours have announced that by mutual agreement the Sisters of Bon Secours have withdrawn and have been released from the terms of an affiliation agreement between those institutions and the Johns Hopkins medical institutions. "Because of a difference in philosophy, the terms of the affiliation agreement were found ' to be unworkable. The seven Bon Sccours who have served

at the Good Samaritan Hospital have withdrawn effective June 20, 1909." Nuns Reassigned Last month, Dr. Thomas Harvey, the hospital's chief executive, had verified rumors that Sister Mary Ruth would resign as director of nursing. At that time the Sisters would make no official statement. Howlwer, after publication of the joint statement that the Sisters had stopped working in the hospital June 20, Mother St. Urban said they had also left the hospital convent June 24. Besides Sister Mary Ruth, others wllo left are four Sisters in nursing services, one medical technologist and one in physical therapy. "All the Sisters have been reassigned to other Bon Secours institutions of their own choosing," said Mother St. Urban, who said she was disappointed in the outcome of the Good Samaritan arrangement.

MIAMI (NC)-The devastating scene which followed the recent crash of a DC 4 cargo plane in a Miami busines district was likened to the aftermath of wartime bombings by the first of three priests to arrive at the site. The accident killed 10 persons and injured 11 others. Father Francis Fenech, pastor of Corpus Christi Church, who rushed to the area minutes after the crash of the ill-fated plane, said the scene was reminiscent of his native Malta where he ministered to the dead and injured during the World War II bombings. Amid the screams of sirens from rescue units and ambulances, fires on both sides of the street, and the shouting police, firemf.:11 and medical teams, Father Fenech and two other Miami priests, Father Emilio Martin and Clemente Seoane, recited the prayers for the dying and administered last rights to victims. Included were the three-man crew and one passenger aboard the Dominican Air Lines plane which was bound for Santo Domingo when it plunged to earth minutes after taking off from Miami International Airport. "When planes crash, you expect t.o see charred bodies but one can never become accustomed to the heartbreak of this type of tragedy," Father Fenech said. He added that some of the bodies removed from ruined blllldings and automobiles were not: immediately identifiable.

New Plan Equalizes Pay for Clergy PARIS (NC)-Beginning Oct. 1 all priests in the Parish archdiocese will receive the same monthly pay of 350 francs ($70), plus cost of living allowances depending on the nature of their work. The new pay regulations, also adopted in the suburban dioceses of Creteil, St. Denis and Nanterre, are designed to reduce inequalities between the standard of living of priests in well to do parishes and those in poor parishes.

Cites Favorable Reaction To Popens Geneva Visit By Msgr. George G. Higgins Division of Urban life,U.s.C.C.


I had the good fortune to be in Geneva,' Switzerland, on June 10 when Pope Paul VI paid his historic visit to the International Labor Organization and to the World Council of Churches. When I discovered, upon my return to Washington, that the de-' tails of the Holy Father's out of touch with what is going the ILO. fantastically busy day in the on Bein that as it may, I would be city of Calvin had been so willing to give almost unlimited widely covered in thir; country by all the media, I didn't see any point in commenting on the Pope's trip in t his column two wee k s after the event. I simply took it for granted t hat anyone who had read a newspaper or listened to a radio or turned on his television set that day, or on the following morning, was aware of the fact that the· trip had gone off remarkably well from almost every point of view. It wasn't until I caught up with Patrick Riley's post-mortem NC report on certain anonymous Roman reactions to the'trip that I changed my mind and decided that it might serve a useful purpose, after' all, to jot down some of my own first-hand impressions of the Holy Father's visit to a city which has come' to be known over the centuries as the Protestant Rome. Anonymous Sources I must say that I found' Mr. Riley'c; report, rather disturbing, but, before saying why, let me hasten to add that my criticism of the report is not to be interpreted as a personal criticism of Mr. Riley. On the contrary, I have the highe3t possible regard for Riley'S professional competence, and I am proud to be able to add that he has been a cl6'se personal friend of mine for many years. I have no quarrel with Mr. Riley, then, or with his report as such, After all, a report is a report and not a personal essay. I am only concerned with the opinions expressed by Riley's anonymous Ro~an sources. Mr. Riley's NCS dispatch of June 13 reports, in summary, that Vatican circles are increasingly doubtful about the_ value' of the Pope's visit to the World Council of Churches and, to my surprise-I almost said to my astonishment" that' th'ey are not very excited' even about his visit to the International Labor Organization. With regard to the latter point, Mr. Riley's cabled dispatch says that "few, if any Vatican. officials contest the value, .01' at least, the harmlessness of his visit to the International Labor Organization, the announced goal of his trip to Geneva." .

CHICAGO (NC)-It's easy for a Catholic priest to be branded a "subversive" or a communist in Recife, third largest city and biggest poverty pocket in Brazil, say two Oblate of Mary Immaculate missionary priests. One. had been expelled from Brazil on subversive charges, the other is temporarily here to study. One said it works like this: "You preach to your people: 'God gave the world to all men, not to a few people'," said Father Darrell Rupiper, O.M.I. He was given 30 hours to leave Recife on Christmas day, 1968. He said he 'has received 300 letters asking l1is return to Christ the Redeemer parish, where he was pastor for 35,000 Brazilians. But until the military dictatorship of President Arturo da Costa e Silva has a change of heart, Father Rupiper will, be a Newman club chaplain at the University of Illinois. . Illustrating current tensions, . Father Boniface Whittenbrink, O.M.I., recalled a funeral he attended shortly before arriving here for two years of sociology studies. "It was for Father Henrique Pereira Neto, the first Catholic priest to be killed in Brazil., He was a jovial man, student chaplain for the whole city, which has two colleges, one Catho·lic." Father Neto, 28, was found hanging, from a tree on the campus of the university 'of Recife May 26. His body showed signs of torture. "The government said they'd arrest anyone who showed up to make the eight-mile non-violent funeral march to the gravesite," said Father Whittenbrink. Yet the wooden' coffin' "was carried 'past m'ore' tHan 7,000' mourners waiting for it.

government, some Cat h a I i c clergy and many conservative Protestant clergy in the country. "He's 60 and not afraid," said Father Whittenbrink. "Before I left, he said his name was first on the list of 32 persons in Recife who've reportedly been ,condemned to death by a guerrilla group called the Communist Hunt command." Terrorist activities have been going on the last two years against the lives of well-known progressive leaders throughout the country, the priests said, And they added some say the death of the Brazilian priest proves a shift from political to religious terrorism. . Father Whittenbrink said 70 per cent of all Brazilian families don't make $30 a month. Gov-' ernment statistics show that $70 a month is minimum for food purchases. Father Rupiper said he doesn't pretend to understand the intricacies of politics or economics. "But I do know that the Brazilian people are suffering."

New Saint!' Founded Congregation Though Bedridden 22 Years VATICAN CITY (NC) - A woman who founded a congregation of teaching Sisters, although she herself was bedridden, has been canonized. Julie Billiarti the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, was canonized in ceremonies that were substantially , shortened. The Holy See announced that the ceremonies had been "reviewed and simplified according to the criteria governing the entire liturgical reform." ' One of the most notable changes was that Pope Paul VI walked in procession into St. Peter's Basilica instead of being carried on a chair. He wasaccompanied by about 50 persons. It had been customary for members of a new saint's Religious order to display a tapestry depicting the saint, but this was deleted in the new regulations. Also missing were the tapestries that traditionally depict miracles attributed to the new saint, and the red silk draperies that usually hang from the ceiling of the basilica. St. Julie's congregation devotes itself to the religious education of the young. A Belgian cardinal who lived during her time once described the founding of her Order as "the breath of the apostolic spirit upon the heart of a woman who knew how to believe and how to love." St. Julie was the daughter of peasant farmers who also ran a little shop at Cuvilly, France, where she was born July 12, 1751. She received her basic education from her uncle, the village schoolmaster. Beatified in 1906 She contracted a mysterious i1ness which gradually deprived her of tile use of her limbs.

Seeks to Alleviate Blood Shortages PROVIDENCE (NC) The Providence diocese has begun a state-wide blood donor program to alleviate blood shortages in the two Rhode Island Catholic hospitals. The program involves a week campaign conducted by either a large parish or combination of smaller parishes. Its goal .is to obtain 50 pints per week, which is the amount needed at St. Joseph's and Our Lady of Fatima hospitals in Providence. John H. Albanese, diocesan blood bank chairman, said more than half the 157 pastors in the diocese have appointed parish chairmen to direct campaigns in conjunction with the program. The program was started when 30 parishioners of St. Philip's church, Smithfield; contributed in the first of what is now an ongoing series of drives.

Pope Supports Cardinal

From her bed she would often teach catechism to children, although .she was unable to walk for 22 years. During the French Revolution she aided fugitive priests. Her activities so incensed the ruling revolutionaries that they threatened to burn her alive. Smuggled out of her house and hidden in a hay cart, she was taken to Compeigne. A hunt continued for several months, and she had to be moved from house to hous.e to avoid being captured. After taking refuge in Amiens, she met Francoise Blin de Bourdon, later Mother St. Joseph, who was to become her close friend and associate in all her work. St. Julie founded the Sisters of Notre Dame at Amiens in 1803. The motherhouse was transferred to Namur, Belgium, in 1809. St. Julie died April 8, 1816, while she was praying. She was beatified by Pope Pius X on May 13, 1906.

The separate news conferences followed a meeting held the previous evening at the ini.tiative of Cardinal O'Boyle. At that meeting the cardinal ,read the Pope's letter and proposed once again to the priests that they accept the Church's teaching. At his news conference, Cardinal O'Boyle said that while in Rome this Spring he had sought an audience with the Pope to seek his "advice and guidance" on the dispute in Washington. He said the letter was Pope Paul's response to that request. "We have had occasion to appreciate and admire your selfdedication and devotion in defending the truth of Christ taught and proclaimed by the Church," Pope Paul wrote the cardinal. "Of this fidelity we have had particular proof on the occasion of the publication of the encyclical which we deemed it our grave duty' to address to the Church and to mankind, in defense of the supreme values of life and conjugal life.

Ford, who won four "Oscars" in a career in the movies dating hllck some 40 years, came here for" the HemisFilm_ Festival at St. Mary's University, at which he was honored. "Today's movies are inferior to those of two decades ago and so are the current' box office stars," Ford told newsmen. He ~alled the current output of sex, violence and off-color movies a "disgrace." Ford added: "They really aren't making any money. The people in the Midwest won't go to see them."

People everywhere, said the prelate, need more roads and more wells and more pumps and more fertilizers. But more than that people all need the spirit of concern to share with others and make a chain reaction of such concern grow all over the country and the world. The archbishop said in the talk, broadcast over the All-India Radio network: "We must talk about it, write about it, publicize what is being done about it, create public opinion in favor of stepping up the pace and quality and extent of a full, integrated harmonious developnwnt for each man and all . men in the country."

Forum Honors Bishop, Editor ST. PAUL (NC)-A bishop and a Catholic journalist were among five persons.honored here at the fifth annual National Wanderer Forum for distinguished service to the Church. Bishop William L. Adrian of Nashville, Tenn., was honored for his "truly exemplary zeal , and courage in guiding and fortifying the religious faith of the thousands of readers who eagerly await your weekly column in the Wanderer (weekly newspaper)." ~'Your tireless devotion continuing far beyond the burden of years and the call of duty has earned for you the well-deserved gratitude of countless faithfUl Catholics," the award citation said. Bishop Adrian, who recently suffered a stroke, was not· present to accept the award. It was accept~d by Father Robert Burns of Boston who reported that the bishop is doing well and is offering Mass each day for nuns in a Nashville hospital. Paul Hallett, an associate editor for the Register system of newspapers in Denver, was honored for "consistency and steadfastness of purpose in your long and distinguished career as a Catholic journalist." ,

ostolic and pastoral concern, that all the priests and laity should give the same acceptance," Pope Paul wrote. "We know the instructions you have issued for the purpose, and the wise directives you have given the clergy. We are familiar with the firm, but pastoral approaches you have made to those priests who have found it difficult to give assent to the teachings of Humanae Vitae." "We wish to testify to all this," Pope Paul told Cardinal O'Boyle, "for your comfort and for the encouragement of all who, with you and like you, grieve at a situation that is a cause of disturbance for the conscience of good Catholics." The Pope asked Cardinal 0'Boyle to convey to his "direct and faithful collaborators, as well as to the priests who give cause for some anxiety, our fatherly greeting and the assurance of our constant prayer and our sincere affection." Responsibility "To the latter in particular," said Pope Paul," we wish to send, through you, cordial, sincere word of exhortation to reconsider their position, to reflect on their responsibilities, and generously to provide their collaboration in order to reach at last, and speedily, the solution that all so ardently desire." "We trust that these words of ours will not be in vain, and that the priests in question, animated, as we like to think, by a sincere desire of absolute fidelity to Christian truth, will seek a meeting with their own bishop to re-establish full communion of sentiment and of aims with him, in the supreme interest of the Church and of souls." Cardinal O'Boyle told newsmen that his meeting with the dissidents had been "friendly," and that he had hopes of a settlement. He said the priests could have as much time as they need to think the matter over. Asked why he was optimistic of a settlement in light of the priests' apparent rejection, Cardinal O'Boyle replied: "There was free and open discussion, back and forth, for two hours and I thought that was good." Pope Paul's letter to Cardinal O'Boyle was dated May 15 and bears the Pope's own signature. It was not received until about 10 days later.

RockefeUer's Veto Jeopardizes f . . 1" 'Higher Educ/Cltion Program Aid

Christian Challenge Lies In Aiding Family Life

WASHINGTON' (NC) - Gov. Rockefeller's veto of, a New York Assembly-prepared measure to clarify the provisions of the 1968 Bundy college aid bill has placed the whole program of grants to non public higher education in jeopardy. The measure would have specified precisely how grants made under the state's $20 million program of aid to private institutions of higher learning could be used. The governor's veto means, among other things, the potentially troublesome question of whether the grants can be used for "religious'~ purposes remains unresolved.

Few of those concerned with the fantastic growth of population in recent years have really grasped the full extent of the crisis. It is not simply that the world's population may shortly be growing by a billion every. decade. The deeper danger is that three quarters of that billion out of wedlock and with a .life expect?tion of five years, is very will be born in the stagnation far from the ideal of Christian of unreformed country-sides marriage which the Church upor in the workless, shelterless miseries of vast urban sprawls. T his b a c kg r 0 u n d has been very largely dIsregarded by the supporters of birth control in the devel. oped I and s. They have concentrated so strongly on family planning that they .. barely asked under w at conditions families can live in such a way that "responsible" decisions about family size' can in fact be taken. Nor have they made it clear that even the most successful progr<lms of birth control can do no more than slow down future growth. The next two billion' "earthlings" are, as it were, already locked in to the numbers and fertility of present-day mothers. And at least two-thirds of those billions will live below the poverty line. Money Needed In ether words, every argument for population control put forward by its supporters should, to be convincing, be accompanied by' as 'strong a plea for a vast increase.,in economic assistance to give families the decencies and hepes which make "responsible parenthood" a geQuine possibility. Otherwise, as we have already noticed, advocacy of family planning can look suspiciously like the advocacy of fewer poor (and usually colored) children, with no care for how they live now and only the desire to see that in the future there are not enough of them to be troublesome. But the critics of family planning have shown just the same myopia. Those political leaders who want large populations for prestige' reasons-they are to be found all over Latin Americadisplay little realization of the fact that millions of adolescents crowding into great cities, without education or work blow up the state long before they strengthen it. Even when we leave behind these essentially trivial and degrading arguments of power and' come to the deep concern expressed in Humanae Vitae for the quality of human relations and the preservation of family life, the problem has to be faced that to produce a child every year in the favellas, all too often

Accuse Government Of Persecution


PARIS (NC) - The French Young Christian Workers (YCW) have a.::cused the Brazilian government of persecuting the Brazilian YCW. In a petition it invited its member;;; to sign and send to the Brazilian ambassador in France, the French CYW said repression "rages ferociously" against the Brazilian YCW.

holds. Yet this rootless, feckless procreation is all too. likely to be typical of population growth over the next bitter decades unless a vast effort of investment and development is made to reform agriculture and humanize the cities. Facts of Life HUincmae Vitae does not, of co~rse, condemn responsible parenthood. It simply limits parental choice to the rhythm method. But one may ask how such methods can be learned and applied 61 teeming slums with no calendars or thermometers, indeed with almost no knowledge of biology, with no settled homes or jobs, with illegitimacy rising to more than 50 per cent of births and the terrible hemorrhage of abortions continuing year after year, as mothers by one means or another get rid of children they cannot hope to rear. These are the existential facts of liie below the margin of subsistence in the great cities of the developing world. These are the facts now. These will be the infinitely more terrible and pathetic facts 10, 20 years from now-unless a' real and vast effort of aid, development and reconstruction is made over the next decades. In other words, the pre-conditions necessary for responsible family life must be a profound Catholic concern, if' anything convincing is to be said on methods of family planning. It is for this reason that it should be possible for Christians and humanists of all persuasions and convictions to work together in the field of the preservation of the family. Vast efforts of money, and of trained work are needed if the rural economy is to be made productive enough to feed and hold at least part of its people while the cities are to be "civilized" in the true sense of giving homes and jobs and hope to all their inhabitants. Every stagnant countryside needs its ~eform of agrarian str.uctures, its .extension services, its marketing and credit unions, its regional centers for storage, marke~s and' processing units. Every favella needs its school, its church, its credit union and self-help housing scheme. Unending Field The ,f ield here for missionary activity is unending. The health centers require marriage c'ounsellors, child care experts, nurses and visiting doctors. There is no reason why,-as in Mauritius, the' Christian community 'as a whole cannot cooperate in setting them up to ensure a deep. respect for family life and instruction in acceptable methods of responsible family planning, Catholic parents following the dictates of their conscience without coercion. But the point is that, over vast areas, nothing of this kind exists. Nor will it, without a new effort of aid on an unprecedented scale. Here is the real field of effective cooperation, the direct challenge to the Christian conscience.


Keating Named To Commission WASHINGTON (NC) - Presic dent Nixon has named Charles H. Keating Jr., founder of Citi'zens for Decent Literature, to the U. S. Commission on Obscenity and Pornography. Keating, member of St. Vivian parish, Finneytown, Ohio, sUEceeds former U. S. Sen. Kenneth P. Keating of New York, who has been appointed ambassador to India. They are not related. . . Authorized by Congress in commission was 1967, the formed early last 'year by President Johnson to study the effect of obscenity and pornography on anti-so~ial behavior and to find a constitutional. means of controlling its distribution. It is to prepare a report by the end of next January. Among the 18 members of the commission are psychiatrists, judges, civic leaders and Clergy-' men, including Father Morton Hill, S.J., founder of a New York anti-obscenity campaign. An attorney and former swimming champion, Keating is legal counsel for Citizens for Decent Literature, whose major headquarters are in Cincimlati, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.


Reaffirms Support Of Projecf/' IEquali·ty CHICAGO (NC) - John Cardinal Wright, recently named prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy and former bish" op of Pittsburgh, has reaffirmed his support of Project Equality, nationwide interfaith program, sponsored by.the National Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice with headquarters here. Project Equality places th,e purchasing power of religious organizations behind a drive for fair employment practices. The program insists that all firms doing business with participating religious jurisdictions maintain a strict policy of non-discrimination in hiring and purchasing . procedures.

Moreover, Rockefeller's reasoning in his veto message has left Catholic educators in New York puzzled and dismayed. The governor said that while he personally favors aid to church-related colleges, he doubts the present bill can survive court . tests of its constitutionality. He mentioned New York's Blaine Amendment which prohibits state aid to sectarian institutions. Catholic educators say the Rockefeller veto failed to take into consideration the· new possibilities opened up by the U.S. Supreme Court, and the New York State Court of Appeals in its most recent decisions on the use of public funds for use of the secular education of students in church-related schools. It also failed,' they claim, to take note of the avenues opened by the decision in the East Greenbush textbook loan law case that it was legal for public authorities to lend textbooks to all students without regard to

their religious affiliation or. the kind of school in which they were studying. . Muddy Situation The vetoed bill was aimed at clarifying the somewhat muddy situation about aid to private colleges approved by the legislature last year. That law (based on a study by McGeorge Bundy of College needs in the state) cited the do-or-die necessity of directing public funds to non public as well as public colleges. With about 50 per cent of collegian s in the state .in nonpublic schools, the study pointed to the potentially chaotic possibilities of not aiding all the colleges. Since the bill provided for "unrestricted" grants, however, there was always the possibility that a non public college receiving the aid might run afoul of the First Amendment if it chose to use that aid for a religious purpose-to 'pay for the services of a campus chaplain, for example, or the maintenance of the chapel. With this in mind, an amendment to the bill was drafted and passed. This amendment would have specified that the grants under the college-aid bill "not be used for any impermissible' purpose." That's the legislature's way of saying don't use the money to support religion. Lack Guidelines However, with the Rockefeller veto, the situation is as it was before. The State Education Department, which must administer the grants under the 1968 law, is faced with the problem of handling this program without. sufficient guidelines from the legislature. ' Gov. Rockefeller's dragging in the issue of, the Blaine Amendment as he did in his veto message is the most puzzling of all. The law has nothing to do with Blaine. The Su- , preme Court and the New York State Court of Appeals decisions in the last Greenbush textbook loan case made it obvious that· secondary benefits to schools are incidental to the real purpose of aiding students. The amendment to the Bundy program would have done precisely that-made it obvious that the purpose was to aid students-and thereby avoid the consitutitional red herring that now exists, and which the education department rimst- handle as it administers the program.

Church Replies To Militants In St. Louis

FClvors Programs To Aid Migrants

ST. LOUIS (NC) - The Catholic Church in St. Louis owns no slum property or corporate stocks and bonds, a Church spokesman said here in response to demands by Negro militants. But the spokesman, Richard J. Childress, dean of the St. Louis University law school and a member of the St. Louis archdiocesan commission on human rights, said the archdiocese "does have a substantial debt." Almost $1.5 million is spent by the Church annually on inner city schools, where "3D per cent of the students are not Catholics. This is something the Church is contributing," he said. The militants demanded that the Church reveal ownership of slum properties and remove its ' investments from certain local corporations which. they accused of discrimination. The militants, members of ACTION, also have demanded in church confrontations that the archdiocese turn over to ACTION 75 per cent of its revenues for black路operated community programs to help the poor. Whil~ the Church owns real estate, Childress pointed out, it is used for Church-related functions :;uch as schools, hospitals and rectories. He added that the archdiocese "owns no investment real es'ate." Childress emphasized that he was speaking for the archdiocese and not for Religious orders, but added: "I don't know of any they own." Father Edward J. O'Donnell, editor of the St. Louis Review, archdiocesan newspaper, and a member of the archdiocesan commission on human rights, said he will soon make public reports "on the extent of the Church's involvement in the community." Will Surprise Critics The reports, now being drafted by the commission, "will honestly try to tell people the extent of the Church's involvement in the inner city, and will surprise some critics with what the holdings of the Church actually are," Father O'Donnell said. John Cardinal Carberry of St. Louis replied to militants in a pastoral letter issued June 15 stating that the archdioces~ "cannot and will not condone planned interference or disruption of sacred acts of worship." He also gave specific guide路 lines to priests for handling church demonstrations, and ordered that pastors refuse to allow demonstrators to read their demands during Church servic~s.

The cardinal's statement followed .'} threat by some demonstrators that they would defile consecrated bread and wine as "symbolic protests" at future demonstrations. Since the cardinal issued his pastoral, demonstrators have been arrested at confrontations at St. Louis Cathedral and at Central Presbyterian Church. Action and the Black Liberation Front-another civil rights group -have said that demonstrations will continue despite the arrests.

DAYTON (NC)-The time has come to de-emphasize paternal路 ism in the migrant worker apostolate a"nd to give active support to programs of collective bargaining and resettlement of migrant families. This is the view of Father Albert H. Ottenweller, leader in migrant assistance in the Toledo diocese, upon which h,e expanded at a meeting of the east-central region of the Conference of Major Religious Superiors of Women's Institutes here in Ohio. He asserted migrant families "want to get out of the hole of paternalism and don't know how." An apostolate centered around "programs of paternalism," Fr. Ottenweller added, may well "keep them down in that hole." "If we are really Christian, we must help bring them into a life of dignity and self-respect," he said. The paternalistic programs are the easiest, the priest said, but not necessarily the best.

WASHINGTON (NC) - Some 65 Catholic school personnel from throughout the nation took part in workshop on school relations sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) at Georgetown University here.

learn more about the priesthood, and when Serrans love the priesthood and communicate this love and respect, then the future holds no problem," Louis A Arru told over 800 persons attending the 27th convention of Serra International here. Arru is president of Serra International, an organization to promote vocations to the priesthood. He addressed the convention participants on "The State of Serra." Bishop John L. Morkovsky of the Galveston-Houston diocese welcomed the participants to the "Mother Diocese of Texas." He gave his a:5dress first in English an,d then in Spanish. Miguel Cardinal" Miranda y Gomez of Mexico City spoke to the group on the 28th Serra International convention scheduled to be held in Mexico next year. Frank R. Young, convention chairman, gave a "Texas" welcome at the morning session. Arru called the members of Serra International "dedicated, devoted and determined men. I know, for I met them throughout the world." "I've seen Serrans, young arid old, trying to do a professional job on behalf of youth, on behalf of the ministerial priesthood, on behalf of the Church. 14 New Clubs "I've seen the faith and devotion of hundreds of Serra chaplains, and ladies and gentlemen, if anyone has a small doubt about t!le priesthood, about its strength and its spirit of service, just look around you at your own chaplains-they're men of God of whom we can all be proud." The Serra president reported that there are 327 chartered Serra Clubs representing 13,000 men in 23 nations. Arru noted that ;;;ince the last year's convention, the .international board has granted charters to 14 new Serra Clubs, inclUding seven from Latin America. "This past year of Serra has been one directed toward professionalism-with 'men deeply interested in acquiring new knowledge in order to serve their organizat ion with greater enthusiasm, 'stronger energy, and increased efficiency," he continued. The Serran president read the encouraging words of Pope Paul VI who said: "Serra's work for pries~I:" vocations is the most important in the Church today.

Urge President To' Help Insure Relief F~sghts



Tax Query Continued from Page One tion tax support for established churches was discontinued but specific tax 'exemptions were promptly enacted by individual states, for example, Maryland in 1798, Virginia in 1800 and North Carolina in 1806.

NEW YORK (NC) - The three leaders of Joint Church Aid-USA sent Persident Nixon a telegram urging that "the United States government, all concerned nations, the United Nations and the Organization of Afric1jn Unity take the strongest possible action to obtain from both Nigerian afld Biafran leaders the necessary safeguards to insure completion" of nightly relief flights to secessionist Biafra. The telegram was sent to Mr. Nixon by Betram H. Gold of the American Jewish Committee, James MacCracken of Church World Service, and Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom of Catholic Relief Services, representatives of the three agencies comprising Joint Church Aid-USA. The religious leaders told the President they were "enheartened by news of plans to implement a new route for increasing relief _supplies by river and land for the suffering women and children in blockaded Biafra." They also noted that some three million civilians are still dependent upon the mercy air flights to sustain their lives:

Challenge During the early 1800's when' Congress imposed direc,t taxes, 'it specifically exempted from federal taxes the properties whicfl were exempt by the laws of the states. After the Civil War by law the Southern states were obliged to rewrite their constitutions and have them approved by Congress. In the Constitution of five states there was provision for the exemption of church properties. The first major challenge to church property exemptions was initiated by the so-cal1ed Liberal League in the 1870's. It reached the point that President Grant included the recommendation in a Stat2 of the Union Address in 1875, stating that church property should bear its own proportion of taxes. The plea fel1 on deaf ears in Congress, but there was some support for the idea at state levels. The exemptions, however, continued to survive various chal1enges. " Today 36 state constitutions contain either mandatory or perJ;Tlissive provisions for church exemption. In all other states there :lre statutes providing the exemption. Litigation There has been much litigation through the decades challenging this special exemption but most of it has focused on whether a particular property satisfied statutory requirements. Few have focused on the strictly constitutional question, whether directly under the First Amendment, or indirectly under the Fourteenth Amendment. And these few cases would probably be interpreted as an affirmation of the constitutionality of the church property exemptions. The Walz case again call,S the church' exemption into question. As is their custom, the Supreme Court justices gave no explanation for accepting the case. Attitude The history of the _United States demonstrates a' common accord on the question of property tax exemption for religious organizations. From the beginning a long-standing attitude that such an exemption is consistent not only with the thinking of the majority of the people but has had the endorsement of all state legislatures and on occasio~ from Congress. Neither the concensus of the majority nor the approbation of legislators, however, is a guarantee against a countermand by the U. S. Supreme Court. The famous New York prayer case left no doubt of that. This is why there will be much concern over how large in history might become a tiny speck of Staten Island.

Nigerian Harassment With no stockpiles available, the message stated, and only one relief flight completed since June 15 because of Nigerian Air Force harassment, "there is imminent danger of a rapid escalation in the death of thousands of children by starvation."

Express Opposition to Black Manifesto Cardinal Supports Congregationa,lists' Stand BOSTON (NC) - Opposition cropped up' along several fronts here against the militant Black Manifesto demand for $500 million from churches in reparation for past injustices to the blacks. The Rev. Dr. Ben Mohr Herbster, president of the United Church of Christ, told the general synod of the 2-million member denomination, he would have "no truck" with the philosophy behind the Black Manifesto. • The Rev. William P. Gray, minister of the First Church -in Malden, Congregational, and the deacons of h'is church, took a full page ad the Malden Evening News, disputjng the Manifesto and its demands. Richard Cardinal Cushing of Boston, in a letter to Mr. Gray, support-;d the stand of the Congregational Church, declaring: "Congratulations! Well done!" The United Church of Christ synod was thrown into turmoil at its ol)ening session of the twoweek sessions when black churchmen demanded the denomination withdraw from a court injunction being sought in New York:tgainst the National Black Economic Development Conference, which 'issued the Black Manifesto. James Forman appeared as spokesman for the black group. After considerable heated discussion, punctuated by some namecalling, the synod voted to instruct its board of world ministries to withdraw frbm the suit, but still later in the proceedings, the iSSue was forced back to the floor. Threats Offensive At one point, Forman declared the Catholic Church was not "exempt" from the Manifesto reparations demands. And a bit later the Rev. Albert B. Cleage Jr., of Detroit, said: "They just have to be patient." At a later session, Dr. Herb-

ster declared he would have "no truck" with. the philosophy behind the Black Manifesto. He said he was concerned for racial and social justice, but found" "threat of revolution," of "armed confrontation" and of "sustained guerrilla warfare inside this country" to be "offensive." Mr. Gray disclosed the support expressed by Cardinal Cushing at th.e UCC !iynod. 'Most Barbaric Country' Mr. Gray and his deacons, in the newspaper ad, said their church could not support "any group regardless of color, that declares the United States is the most barbaric country in the world" and cannot give financial aid to "a militant group that proclaims it is committed to a society where the total means of production are taken from the rich and placed in the hands of the state.'! Mr. Gray said he received a letter from Cardinal Cushing which said:
