Collegiality in Church Government

His Views

Belgian Cardinal ft»re~(fJnd~

OAKLAND (NC) - Leo Cardinal Suenens of Malines-Brussels, Belgium, has responded to criticisms of his remarks calling for a fuller exercise of collegiality in Church government. In a mail interview with the Catholic Voice, Oakland diocesan newspaper, Cardinal Suenens spoke of the views he had earlier expressed in the French Catholic periodical, Informations CatholiQues Internationales. In the French magazine, the 64-year-old Belgian cardinal criticized the election of popes by the college of cardinals itself. He said all who are affected by a decision of the Church should be involved in what he called the "decision-making," though not necessarily in the "decision-taking." After the French magazine interview, there were press reports of a letter from members of the college of cardinals to

Cardinal Suenens, whose views the other cardinals criticized. The letter reportedly was signed by Eugene Cardinal Tisserant, dean of the college of . cardinals; Jean Cardinal Villot, papal secretary of state and Gabriel Cardinal Garrone, prefect of the Congregation of Catholic Education. Cardinal Tisserant . has confirmed only that he sent Cardinal Suenens a letter but he refused to disclose its contents. The California interview: Q. Cardinal Suenens, would you have said the same thing if the Pope had been Pope John XXIII instead of Pope Paul VI? A. Exactly the same. This is not a matter of individuals but rather of functions. Q. Are you not commenting on the Curia as a "whole" when, in fact, there are members of the Curia of various viewpoints? A. I have said from the outset that to classify them as a single bloc would be an oversimplification.

Q. Have you received any criticism on your recent interview from any of the hierarchy in Rome? A. Yes, from some Cardinals in private letters. Q. What are the main criticisms that have been leveled against your positions as expressed in the interview? A. Well, some people feel that I am attacking persons, when I am speaking only of functions. They seem to feel my comments about the papal nuncios have been personal attacks. My intention was not at all . to discuss persons nor local situations in the present or the past but the difficulties of the role of a papal nuncio in the post-concHar church, especially in regard to the nomination of Bishops where the role of the nuncio is, in practice, decisive. Because of that the theology of a nuncio is vital, and by "theology" I mean LEO CARDINAL SUENENS the vision of understanding Archbishop of Malines-Brussels which the nuncio has of the

Church in the world of today. It will be according to that criterion that the nuncio will favor the person he feels is the right man for the place. It happens only accidentally that under the present system of appointments the vision or liberty of actions of a nuncio is better than that of the local hierarchy. I rejoice at that happy accident, of course, but this function of a nuncio must be seen and studied in normal circumstances, and as a whole, and not in exceptional or accidental situations. It seems that some of my correspondents apparently misunderstand what I said about nuncios in general. The nuncio's function makes him the man to whom people complain. Thus, there is a risk that if a nuncio is not careful, he can be imposed upon by individ;uals who are hostile to the Bishops. This could happen anywhere in the world and the cirTurn to Page Thirteen

VATICAN CITY (NC)-A Roman cardinal" ol)e' of the top officials of the Second Vatican Council, has taken exception to various interpretations of the counc!l's teachings in recent years. Pericle Cardinal Felici, head of the commission for the interpretation of the council's decrees and former general secretary of the council, voiced his opinion in an article in L'Osservatore Romano entitled, "The Logic of the CounciL" Cardinal Felici took particular issue with those who are critical of Pope Paul's way of working and who "seem to want to submit his activity as the primate of and the supreme teacher in the Church to the control or ap-, proval of the bishops." The cardinal said this attitude is contrary to the explicit teach-' ing of the council, which recognized the "primacy of the pope as pastor and teach,er of' the universal Church, a primacy which carries with it the personal magisterium conferred by Christ." , 'Singling out othei' areas which he said are not being true to the "logic" of the council, Cardinal Felici made the following points: Easier Christknity While the council spelled out necessary changes in the training of future priests, a number of seminaries around the world are not following the indications of the council but are carrying out other programs "either unknown or disapproved of by' the counciL" At the same time, the council dealt at length with the life and ministry of priests, he said, but '''today some want to secularize or desecularize th~ priest."

Vote $1.1" Million To Back Racial Justice Work BOSTON (NC)-The Uni~ ted Church of Christ synod has approved a minimum guarantee of $1.1 million for its newly established commission for racial justice. The synod of the 2-million member denomination agreed to a minimum of $500,000 in 1970 and $600,000 in 1971. The 15-member commission, staffed by a majority of black churchmen, was established by the synod in answer to demands made by black clergymen who had advocated approval of the Black Manifesto which seeks $500 million from churches in reparations for past inequitable treatment of blacks. The synod made no provision for turning any funds over to the National Negro Economic Development Conference which has proposed the Black Manifesto. Hit South Africa The synod requested a study of the feasibility of supporting a black university in the South; approved in principle establishment of a black printing and publishing plant and urged the possibility of participating financially in a Southern land bank for underwriting cooperative farms. The synod also rcommended the withdrawal of all church investments in any financial institution doing business with South Africa. It is estimated the investments total $2 million. The new commission on racial justice will have decision making powers in disbursement of funds through 'existing UCC agencies.

Diocese Issues Census Figures ORLANDO (NC)":-A census in the Orlando diocese shows its Catholic population is 46 per cent more than what was estimated when the diocese was established a year ago. Of the 1,292,600 total population in the 13-county diocese, 128,112, or 10 per cent, are Catholics. Edward J. Moloney, executive secretary of the diocese; noted 75 per cent believe the diocese should encourage Catholic high schools and 82 per cent favor continued diocesan backing for elementary schools. Efforts to obtain public tax money for schools were approved by 65 per cent, but 16 per cent said they would not support such efforts. Long Range Planning Thirty per cent said they would more generously support Catholic schools if a detailed financial report was made available, while 35 per cent indicated a "wait and see" attitude. Another 35 per cent said they would not be more generous knowing the details of school finances. Bishop William D. Borders of Orlando expressed concern for "the inadequacies and inequities in our religious education program" because only one-third of Catholic students attend Catholic schools. The bishop said the purpose of the census was to enable diocesan authorities to set up long range planning, to formulate an educational philosophy and procedures for the area, and to move more efficiently in financial matters.

New Bedford 'Educator of Year' Also Active In CCD, Narcotics Prevention Work By Patrica Francis

Charles F. Foley, 30, of 102 Topham Street, New Bedford, is a combination of people. He is the husband of the former Florence Mello of Fairhaven, with whom he went through Fairhaven High School and Bridgewater State College. He is the father of a lively quintet-Colleen, 7, Michael, '6, Maureen, 5, Tara, 4, and Timothy, 2. He is a fulltime history teacher at Fair,.' haven High School and a part-time Confraternity of Christian Doctrine teacher at , Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church. He also is a part-time student, working for his masters degree at Rhode Island State. Now he is something else: The Outstanding Young Educator of Greater New Bedford, a title bestowed on him by the New Bedford Jaycees. Foley seems a little confused by the new title and the commotion it caused. A native of Fairhaven, now a member of Holy Name Parish in New Bedford, his life previously ran along a familiar path. He met Florence in high school. Their acquaintance blossomed into romance in Bridgewater. "We were graduated on a Sunday and married the following Saturday," he says. Mrs. Foley taught briefly after their marriage. "Very briefly," her husband says. "Colleen was on the way then and the others followed." Keep Records Together With a child a year being added to the household, Charlie Foley made a decision that the family has stuck to. "All the children were baptized at St. Mary's in Fairhaven, where we were married. 1 thought it would be more convenient if all the records were in the same place!" His CCD teaching began when Charles Foley was a college freshman. ""I started teaching at St. Mary's. It was pretty foolish, really. 1 was a freshman in college and I, was teaching high school seniors." However, "foolish" or not, young Foley continued his religion instructing through college. Three years ago, he switched to CCD classes at Immaculate Conception, primarily because the classes were in the afternoon and fit more easily into his schedule. Because scheduling is a way of life for the Foleys. For five years, "a long hard grind," he admits now, Charles Foley has been "grabbing what courses I could" toward the requirements for his master's degree. It was rough, he says, "but you can't be a full-time father and a full-time student at the same time-my important job is being a father. "So, you have to make a choice and be patient. Then, things come, event~ally."

Seminary R'ector Heads Church BOSTON (NC) - In a hotly contested election the Rev. Dr. Robert V. Moses, Jr., 47, president of the lancaster (Pa.) Theological 'Seminary was elected president of the two-million member United Church of Christ. Withstanding challenges by candidates supported by Negro and youth groups of the UCC, Dr. Moses achieved a first ballot election, polling 437 of the 719 votes cast at the denomination's synod here. He succeeds the Rev. Dr. Ben M. Herbster, who retired after eight years in the office. The Rev. Dr. Arthur D. Gray, a black Chicago pastor, supported by a Negro clergy group, polled 241 votes, while the Rev. Paul E. Gibbons, Cornell University chaplain, supported by a youth segment received 41 votes.

your family. Don't make your family ashamed of you.' As they get older, I hope that will stay with them." During his eight years as a teacher,Charles Foley has developed an awareness of the problems young people face today. • Two years ago, he helped organize a student workshop on narcotics for Fairhaven students. It lasted three days and then narcotics prevention turned into Charlie Foley's "prime outside activity." "I volunteered like a dummy and then' they volunteered me as chaiman (for a narcotics program for parents)," he recalls. Last January, Foley and his committee "ran a big workshop for parents. More than 1,000 came." From that have evolved regional and parents' councils that are working on the area narcotics problem. "And it is a problem," Foley says. This Summer, he will complete his requirements for a master's degree-and then eventually it would appear he'd like to start work on a doctorate. Meanwhile, Mrs. Foley keeps the home fires burning. "She,keeps going around here. With the children and the house, she has her hands full," Charlie says of his wife. The pride in his voice as he speaks of her indicates he knows hers is a responsible part of their partner.ship.

Students Hold First Conventson CHICAGO (NC)-Black Christian Students, (BCS), a newly organized youth movement for high schoolers, survived its first national convention here intact, but some trauma was noticeable. I The two-day convention at Loyola University was marked by intense eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation among the delegates on the future direction of the movement. Since its foundation last Fall in Chicago, as a breakaway movement within the high school Young Chrisian Students (YCS), BCS has made inroads into various Catholic high schools and black parjshes in the Chicago archdiocese and has begun to spread to other parts of the country. . The convention, devoted to black identity, black awareness, and black culture, Wa!l attended, by, 125 delegates, moderators and chaplains. ' Sloan Letman, national coordinator, emphasized "the heart of BCS is black responsibility." "And the idea of black responsibility is being willing and able to make a sacrifice for your people~" he declared. . "Black responsibility is' not fighting your own folks. Nor is it selling out to the establishment," he added. . "What I want to do as moderator of BCS is to train young students who can lead our people. This takes time.. You can't do a quickie job and turn out an instant leader overnight," Letman said. Letman emphasized that "what makes this different from other black groups is that we ha,ve done something for these students on an individual, personal basis. But we do need adults to help with these kids."

"By organizing ourselves as Black Christian Students, we have indicated our desire to develop' a movement for black stu,dents which is something much more than,a humanitarian movement, a 'protest 'movement, a civil rights movement. We have added' a Christian dimension," he said. "You had to emphasize your mon denominator American any more, 'thanks to 'you, because you have shown us that what we meant by integration really meant absorption of your identity. "We had to emphasize your identity to us dramatically in order for us to realize this is what we should' all be striving for - our own self identity, awareness,pride, and that out of this alone will come respect and equality for everyone," Father Giese said. '

Imposed Culture Black identity through the black arts movement was explored by Eugene Perkins, Chicago poet, playwright, and instructor of black literature at Central YMCA Community College. "So long as white America was successful in suppressing the culture of black people, it was able to impose upon them the culture of the oppressor and therefore deny them the basic strength and dignity a people need to overcome oppression," he ·said. "For years black people in America have cOl'\sciously or un,consciously. striven to becqme the image of ,'their oppressor. And it is for this very reason that black people have never been able to develop a base of identity, a sense of nationalism, which could enable them to conChristian Dimension front white America from a base Father Vincent J.

Pope Says Church Wants R:enewal, But Not Break With Tradntion VATICAN CITY (NC)-The Church is anxious for renewal and change but not at the ex: pense of break with its great tradition, Pope Paul VI said in a general audience. The Pope, speaking to thousands in St. Peter's Basilica, devoted himself to the theme of new things or novelty and change in the Church in the period following the Second Vatican Council. . He noted that a number of changes have already followed on the council and that more are to come in time. However; he cautioned against embracing novelty or change for the sake of change alone. As he put it: "In itself novelty means change. Change must be judged not only; in itself as regards its content and purpose. Does what is new today really lead us to a Detter Christianity?" While welcoming renewal the Church finds the question of the "new" extremely complex said the Pope. He added that "the new cannot be produced in the' Church by a break with tradi-' tion.

goqd Christians. The break we can consent to is that of conversion, of the break with sin, but not with the inhefitance of faith and of life of which we are the responsible and 'fortunate heirs." Original Sources The Pope said' hE? does not want a rigid and outmoded Christianity but that the renew-· ing of tl!e life of the Church must come from a returning to its original sources. "If you meditate on it, change in Christian life and in the Church can come from .purification, an operation which is now in progress and indeed which always is in progress. "It can come through a deepening. Who can say that he has understood everything, appreciated everything of the treasure of the word, grace and mystery which we carry within ourselves? How much Christianity can grow along this path? "And then through application: it is not so much a matter of inventing a new Christianity for new times, but of giving to authentic Christianity the new points of reference ·of which it is capable and which we need."

Rep'ea\t'$ Charge Of Racism CHICAGO (NC) - At a Mass of Thanksgiving over appointments of three black priests as pastors" here, a black priest from New York's Harlem section reiterated a charge of "conscious' and delib-' erate racism" against Chicago's John Cardinal Cody. The charge was made by Father Lawrence Lucas of New York during a Mass concelebnited by 15 black priests, including the three pastors, in Holy Angels Church here. Cardinal Cody appointed the three black pastors. They' are Father q-eorge Clements, pastor Holy Angels parish; Father Dominic Carmon, S.V.D., pastor of St. Elizabeth parish; and Father Kenneth M. Brigham, pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish.. Father Lucas, in his sermon, stressed the steps involved in-the appointment of Father Clements. He said: "George, your troubles are just beginning." 'House Nigger' He recalled that a group of parish laity and black organizations sought to have Father Clements named pastor of the parish last December, but the post went to Father Rollins Lambert, also a black priest. Father Lucas said the cardin",1 "like -any racist" had "passed over George who had proclaimed himself a black man first and then a priest." In the selection' 'of Father Lambert as pastor, Father Lucas said, he was picked by the cardinal as "the house nigger to be used to carry out his will." Father Lucas charged that after Father .Lambert threatened 'to resign, the cardin'al admon,ished him to contain himself for .a few months and Father Clements would be appointed a pastor. The' three black .pastors were appointed by the cardinal early in June. The cardinal had no comment on the sermon by Father Lucas.

SAN ANTONIO (NC)-Catechetical scholars and mass media experts attending a study week here - have formed a permanent· committee to consider the possibility of the Church entering into a worldwide educational program 'via satellite communication. Establishment of the committee, to be known as the International Workshop on Religious Education and Mass Media, came at the conclusion of the International Study Week on Mass Media and' Catechetics held at St. Joseph's Retreat House. The 15~member permanent committee, international in scope, will continue to explore and implement proposals probed at the study week, which fea-· tured discussion on how mass media in an age of electronic 'communications can help bring , the Christian message to more people in a more effective and meaningful way. The week was hosted here at the invitation of Archbishop Robert E. Lucey and attracted more than 50 catechetical scholars. and mass, media experts from throughout the world. It was reportedly the first full scale international conference of its type ever held. Elected chairman of the permanent committee was Father Virgil Elizondo, director of. the San Antonio archdiocesan Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. International Conference Members o( the group were authorized by participants at the conference to "gather information on the technical, economic and political feasibility of satel-

Mark Anniversary Of Coronatoon .WASHINGTON (NC) - Diplomatic representatives of many countries, high U.S. Government officials, members of Congress and judiciary, members of the clergy, and laymen prominent in civic life of the nation's capital attended a reception here, marking the sixth anniversary of the coronation of Pope Paul VI.

lite communication and involvement with it." The committee, it was revealed, will also plan an international conference for late 1970 to interest other church groups and organizations in the future of satellite' communications. A record of the conference proceedings, it was announced, will be presented to several Vatican commissions and other church groups. The report adopte,d by the conference participants called on the Church to recognize the role of space communication in "the danger of propagating decidedly materialistic and anti-humanistic ideologies." The document stressed the need for a specific policy should the Church be invited to participate "in cooperative, pluralistic demonstrations via satellite." Joint Venture Also emphasized in the report was the "opportunity of the Vatican City State, as' a member of a satellite organization, to take the initiative in proposing a joint venture with the United Nations, the World Council of Churches, the International Academy of Sciences, development banks and other organizations to reach the underprivileged all over the world with satellite transmitted information on health, nutrition, vocational skills and universal primary education. In a greeting to participants at the session, Archbishop Lucey stressed "this is '" wedding we wanted for a long time, in which catechetics and mass communications are brought together.." He said catechetical experts have been working diligently to find new, effective, and relevant ways of bringing the Christian message to modern day man and that "mass media .experts have been making astronomical strides in developing the various media of communications with the masses."

Their paths until now have been different. Ray is a communicant of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church. Davis belongs to St. Francis of Assisi. Their common denominator is a love for music and good voices that earned them places in the Southeastern District Chorus, sponsored by the Music Educa. tors Association.

This week, they have been in Boston for rehearsals and a. final Boston concert. "Hopefully, we'll be back August 8," Ray said.

A U. S. embassy spokesman said that Peter Flanigan, a special assistant to President. Nixon, delivered a message from the U. S. President to the Pope, but said he had no idea of its contents. The Vatican announced no more than the bare fact of the visit by Mr. Flanigan. The embassy spokesm<tn also told newsmen that the embassy did not expect to make any further statement on the surprise visit.

That means money, Davis muses. But he sounds as though the money somehow will make an appearance. He woudn't dare face Judith without her souvenir dolls.

SPRINGFIELD (NC)-ReactiOll to the Senate Education Committee's rejection of two bills to aid Illinois non public sch~Ols was a mixture of anger ancl resentment, aimed not only at the vote. but also at the possibility of a state income tax. Officia,ls of Citizens for Educational Freedom (CEF) and the

National Association of Personal Rights in Education, (NAPRE), two organizations which favor state aid, accused members of the senate. committee of "bigoted comments" and "intolerance." The senate education committee rejected both proposals, which had been approved by the Illinois House, on the grounds

that state aid to non public schools would be unconstitutional and financially unsound. A number of committee members cited one or both of these reasons in explanation of the defeat, by votes of 9 to 3 and 10 to 2, of bills by Representative Edward Copeland and John Mati路 jevich. Copeland's bill called for

purchase of secular educational services and Matijevich's bill asked for flat tuition grants. Sponsors and backers of the two bills said there was a possibility they might be revived in the legislature prior to its June 30 close but none considered this likely.

Dresses and Matching Slacks Fas-hionabl;e for Fall, Winter

Made of elegant material such as chiffon, crepe or brocades they travel the night circuit and then become City-Pants. I guess country pants are more tweedy. Freedom of speech, thought and action seems to be the thing particularly with the you.ng~r generation and perhaps thiS IS why the freedom of the pantlook has caught on so well. Certainly they allow the wearer a great deal of freedom of movement. The wearer can gracefully exit from a car without practically spraining her back to keep her hemline within the bounds of good taste. Sitting doesn't present the problem that mini-skirts did and all in all if it doesn't detract from the wearer's look of femininity then there isn't any reason she couldn't join the crowd. Of course' ,like all good things they shouldn't be abused (worn to the wrong places) and they shouldn't be worn by those who can just not wear slacks. A fulllength mirror would be a big help here. Paris reports (yes they still dictate a great deal of what is going to be "in" in fashion) that they will be showing dresses with matching ribbed tights to cut into the pant scene. Even maternity clothes (that dull dreary subject) will get a lift from the pant look for some of the designers of this type of

Two American Sisters On De Namur Council CINCINNATI (NC) Two American Sisters have been elected to the general council of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur at Rome. They are Sister Edith Ryan, coordinator of a self-study program for renewal of the congregation's Ohio province, and Sister Joan Bland of Trinity College in Washington, D.C. Their election came at the congregation's general chapter in Rome and was announced at the headquarters of the Ohio province. It was also announced that Sister Patricia Mary Flanagan of Chicago has been named superior of the Ohio province. She succeds Sister Agnes Fasy, who will go to Kenya, Africa, to assist in the establishment of a new mission.

without the trousers they also give the consumer douole value for their money. A two-outfit package for the price of one. This two outfit look, using slacks with a tunic top that can be worn alone isn't just limited to the outfits for those ladies-inwaiting. Even in the lower price lines this two for the price of one look will be a big seller. In fact I noticed while thumbing through the Fall and Winter catalogue of one of the leading mail-order houses that arrived this week that dresses with matching slacks will be a big item for their customers. Fashion is a fickle friend and it takes quite a bit of time before it does filter dClwn from the beautiful people to those of us in the common group. Perhaps this big push on the pant-look from this low-priced catalogue house is an indication that the trend is nearing its end. Incidentally, because I'm more of a New England puritan than a "pace-setter" it was only this past seaso':! that I purchased a very swishy pair of bell-bottoms. Made of a soft terry that has the feel and look of velvet they are a fun-fashion to wear but one can't help feeling conspicuous in them as they swirl' around one's ankle: However, they are comfortable and I do think I'll take a belated venture into a pant-suit this Fall.

Ukrainian Center Opened in Rome

1969

NotreDameHead Opposes Voting Rights Change

ROME (NC) - A church for Ukrainian Catholics and an institute for Ukrainian studies have been opened in Rome, fulfilling a long-felt desire of Soviet-exiled Joseph Carqinal Slipyj. The new complex of buildings devoted to service of Ukrainian Catholics spread throughout the world is located on the north'eastern outskirts of Rome. The church, modeled on the basilica of St. Sophia in Kiev,. was consecrated and is the realization of a dream of Cardinal Slipyj ever since he was nileased by the Russians in 1963, after 18 years of imprisonment. The institute is to have three faculties: theology, philosophy and law, and mathematics. While Cardinal Slipyj has the. title of major archbishop of Lvov, U.S.S.R., he lives in Rome and has not returned to his homeland since his release was obtained by Pope John XXIII, in 1963.

WASHINGTON (NC) Father Theodore M. Hes'burgh, C.S.C., chairman of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, has revealed his opposition to' the Nixon administration's proposal to rewrite' the 1965 Voting Rights Act. His three-page letter has been forwarded to the House Judiciary Committee which has been holding hearings on voting-rights legislation. _ Father Hesburgh believes the administration's propo'lal to abolish advance federal clearance of new state and local election laws would weaken the government's efforts to eliminate discrimination against Negro voters. Endanger Extension Atty. Gen. John M. Mitchell, testifying on the administration plan, had' proposed as a substitute that the federal government could file suit against any state and local election laws that were racially discriminatory. Rep. Emanuel Celler of New York, committee chairman, who previously had opposed the, proposal, said he is "suspicious that the administration really wants to kill the Voting Rights Act by this ruse" of proposing seemingly broader legislation. Rep. William M. McCulloch of Ohio, the committee's ranking Republican, while not questioning the administrative's motives, said its proposal could endanger simple extension of the Voting Rights Act, which is due to expire next year. ,Mitchell AlternaUves Rep. McCulloch, in opposing the administration plan, said the ' 1965 law has been "highly successful" in enabling 800,000 Negroes to register as voters in seven southern states that previously used literacy tests and other devices to bar them from' registering. ' Rep. Celler, backed by the Civil Rights Commission, contends the gains could be lost if the Voting Rights Act is allowed to expire. Reps. Celler and McCulloch, sponsoring a five-year extension of the act, claim they have majority committee support. Mitchell has countered that if those states resume discriminating against Negroes, the attorney general could go to fed/:ral court to block them. Prolong Abuse The trouble with that, committee sources said, is tha t it puts the burden on the federal government to find the discrimination and prove it, allOWing discrimination while the cases are in court. The same objection is raised to Mitchell's p'roposal to replace pre-clearance laws with a clause enabling the attorney general to block them in court after they are passed. father Hesburgh, president of the University of Notre Dame, who has been a membt'r of the Civil Rights Commission since 1958, was named chairman by President Nixon in March.

Missioners Travel to Destination by Air Four R'eligious Orders Organize Agency ROME (NC) - There are no mini-skirted' stewardesses serving champag~e, but there is a Catholic missioOlii-y "airline." ' That old image of traveling apostles handing out penny cate,chisms, living in straw h4ts and using huge cooking pots, is as obsolete as tropical helmets. Today a missionary priest in sports clothes or a missionary nun in plain dress may spend a couple of weeks at the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization in Rome, brushing up on regional diatetics or soil problems. And to get to the field afar where they can put this knowhow to' work most missionaries prefer to travel by plane: The demand for flight accommodations has been so great in recent years that the missionaries have acquired their own "airline." The home base for the departures is Amsterdam. From there missionaries from the United States, England, and Northern Europe begin their journey. Started in Holland After a brief landing in Rome, the plane continues on an eighthour flight to Entebbe in Uganda. Passengers may then go on to Nairobi, Kenya, or smaller planes may take them to regions more remote. On other trips the missionary plane touches base in Bangkok. From there missionaries find their way' to mission centers or remote islands of the East. , The idea of the missionary "airline" was born in Holland in 1949, out of the need for ,missionaries to get to an~as where help was needed. Father Van 'den Ven of the White Fathers, who serve 56 dioceses in Africa. met with representatives of four missionary orders: The Holy Ghost Fathers, the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Mill Hill Fathers and the Jesuits. Together they organized the Romana .Associatio pro Trans-

Piotrowski, RA,PTIM's general manager. "Last year RAPTIM carried over' 5,000 missionary workers to Africa and, the Far East. Our Eastern service began in 1966," he said.

SAGINAW (NC)-A new salary scale and retirement policy has been approved by Bishop Francis F. Reh for priests of the Saginaw diocese. The salary scale, effective July I, provides for a base pay' of $3,500 per year-with an increment of $100 per year up to 20 years for every year of service to the diocese. Ordinary household expenses of the priest will be paid by the parish. He also will be provided an automobile allowance for parish business. Offerings made for Masses, baptisms, weddings, funerals, will,no longer go. to the' priest, but to the parish treasury. The Christmas collection, heretofore for priests of the parish, will now go to the Priests' Retirement Fund. This will be a saving to parishes by abolishing a special tax which has been levied in the past so that $50,000 of diocesan funds could be given to the priests' retirement fund. The new plan will become effective Jan. I, 1970. A retirement benefit of $500 per month will be 'paid to retired priests who may choose to retire at 65, and must retire at 70.

Church Replies To Milita,nts In St. Louis

Plriests Warn Of Revolution

ST. LOUIS (NC) - The archdiocese of St. Louis owns no property in slum areas-except for churches, schools and related facilities that serve the poor and are operated at a deficit. This is the substance of a report issued by Msgr. Francis M. Doyle, executive secretary of the archdiocesan Human Rights Commission, in answer to demands of ACTION, local black militants organization that has interrupted Mass at two Catholic churches here and has promised a continuing series of "Black Sundays." ACTION demanded that the archdiocese "make public all slum properties owned" and disclose all investments in corporations which practice racial discrimination. The Human Rights Commission statement supplemented earlier informal comments made by Dr. Richard Childress, a former chairman of the Human Rights Commission, about the existing debt of the archdiocese. Dr. Childress' comments were his own and were not a response of the archdiocese. Msgr. Doyle said: "I can report that the archdiocese has never invested in slum property." He added that "occasionally a piece of such property has passed through the hands of the archdiocese as the result.of a legacy or some similar cause," but that the archdiocese always disposes of such property "as quickly as we can." No Profit "At times," the report continued, "humanitarian reasons make this (disposal) impossible." It cited the instance of one fourunit building where the tenants pay $15 per month rent. "Since they are unable to obtain housing anywhere at a price they can afford, the archdiocese maintains ownership," the statement said. "Thus, at any given time there may be one or two pieces of residential property in deteriorating neighborhoods owned by. the archdiocese, but for all practical purposes we own no such property and the archdiocese realizes absolutely no profit from 'such property." Msgr. Doyle also noted that the archdiocese own 42 churches and 35 schools in such neighbor. hoods-"few, if any, of which can continue to serve their neighborhood without constant financial aid" from the archdiocese and other parishes.

Prelate Aided Drug Addicts, Alcoholics PATERSON (NC) - Requiem Mass for Msgr. William N. Wall, 52, who worked for 15 years in rehabilitation of drug addicts and alcoholics, was offered in St. John's cathedral here. Burial was in his family plot in St. John's Cemetary, Worcester, Mass. Msgr. Wall, who aided thousands of addicts and drunkards, was killed in a freak accident at "God's Green Acres," a I:n-acre farm he maintained to aid in rehabilitating drug addicts, in rural Sussex County.' A tractor he was operating overturned and crushed him. A priest for 25 years, Msgr. Wall in 1953 opened Mount Carmel Hospital for alcoholics at Straight and Narrow streets here. A short time later he opened St. Dismas Hospital for rehabilitation of drug addicts.

CORDOBA (NC) - A violent uprising of the masses in Latin America is imminent, a group of so-called "progressive" priests warned here. The priests, members of the Third World Movement, made their prediction after a meeting in this third major city of Argentina. (The third world is a term used to describe the underdeveloped nations.) The prospect of a general popular explosion in Argentina and the rest of Latin America was held out by the priests in the light of the bloody disorders here and elsewhere in Argentina in recent weeks. Cordoba was one of the theaters of student-worker disturbances that flared throughout the country in May. Clashes here between the students and workers and police resulted in the deaths of 14 persons. The priests, in their statement, said that suci, disorders are "a symbol and a preview of what will come shortly among the whole of the Argentine and Latin American masses, who want a new order in .political, social, economic and cultural fields." PONTIFICAIl. COMMISSION: The General Council of the Pontifical Commission for latin America (COGECAl) recently met in Rome and was received by the Holy Father following a study that recommended improvement in the selection, preparation and performance of missionary personnel sent to aid the apostolate in latin American countries.

College Presidents Draw Lessons From Disruptions on Campus

Northern Ireland Problems

NEW YORK (NC) - Concluding a meeting here on campus' unrest and violence, nine college presidents issued statements on "lessons to be drawn from a year's experience of campus disruption." The meeting was held in the John· La Farge Institute while, according to a spokes'man, "details and impressions were still fresh in their minds." During a press conterence Dumont F. Kenny, president of York College, Flushing, N. Y., and chairman of the group, said "speculation on the causes of current unrest, although highly

In January of this year, ;nhen the ~ivil rights movement in Northern Ireland moved into hIgh gear and predictably met with vi.olent resistance from Rev. Paisley and his fanatical Protestant followers, L'Osservatbre Romano characterized the conflict in Ulster as a war of. religion. emphatically· in an article entitled "Ulster After The Bludg"Londonderry," the Vatican' eons," in the May 19 issue of daily editorialized, "is. rav- The Nation.

aged by clashes which remind one, not so much of street bra w I s, but rather of a true and proper war of religion." It said that in the six co unties of Northern Ireland, "Catholics are in a condition which makes the m second and third-class citizens." . This strikes me as being' an oversimplification of a very. complicated problem. ... To be sure, religious discrimination, going back for centuries, is one of the major sources of the trouble in Northern Ireland. Indeed it would' probably be fair to say, .that nowhere else in the so-called free world has there been so much coldblooded religious bigotry as in Ulster. Militant Struggne Donald Connery goes so far as to say in his recent book, "The Irish," that "there are few places in Christendom where the humane teachings of Christ have become so perverted. The Irish Republic may have its own col- . lection of fanatics who are beyond the pale of' reason, but Northern Ireland excels in its abundance of diseased minds. I have heard it said that Ulster n'eeds nothing so much as. a decade of atheism to get itself straightened out." That may be putting the case against Ulster a litHe too strongly or, in any event, too rhetorically, but the record will show, I think, that Connery's as· sessment of the situation in the North is basically accurate. This having been said, however, I think it is important for Americans to realize that the new civil rights movement in Northern Ireland is primarly a militant-some would say, a. revolutionary - struggle for social and economic justice and only secondarily a protest agains.t r.eligious discrimination as such.. Miss· Bernadette Devlin, the celebrated heroine of the' movement, was at pains' to make this point for the record when she announced at a 'civil rights rally in London on June 22 that she· does not intend to· run again' for· the seat in the British Parliament to which she ·was. elected only last April. Fight for Underdogs "The problem of Northern Ireland," she said, "is not that Catholic and Protestant hate each other. We .do not hate our fellow citizens 'because they go to a different church. "We are fighting for the Catholic and Protestant underdogs of the working class. The. problems of Northern Ireland are not theological but economic. There is not enough work for 'those at the lower end of the social scale." Benedict Kiely, a Northern Irish author living in the States, made the same point even more

To many outsiders, he wrote, the struggle in the North "still seems to be a simple matter of Catholic against Protestant. Time Magazine," he continued, FR.

Belgian Cardinal Suenens Gives Views Emphasizes He Speaks Only of Functions Continued from Page One cumstances will vary according to the individual temperment. Favorable Comments I did not say that all nuncios can or do succumb to that risk, thank God, but rather that that risk is inherent to the function. My comment should have been read in that perspective and not given a personalistic interpretation. 'Q. Have you had reactions from places other than Rome? A. Yes, I have received a great number of letters thanking me for the fact that I said what so many are thinking-and seeing in that openness something other than destructive criticism. I really think when a crisis exists, the first need is to disassociate the truth from any excesses of language and from negative criticism. It's very different to criticize out of love for the Church and the Pope rather than out of lack of faith-the danger yesterday was the loss of popular acclaim, today the danger is a possible loss of intellectual acclaim. Some people have said, in a cautions way, that they agree with what I said, at least 80 or 90 per cent of it, but that it was inopportune for me to have said all that I did at this time. New Generation My answer to that reaction is as follows: a) I start the discussion by asking just what day or month or year the discussion of those problems will be opportune? Somehow I never get an answer. to that precise question. b) Then I observe that where there are tensions it is always opportune to admit them frankly. That is a first step to solution. I think now is the opportune time because we are in a crisis; we are losing some of the best members of the Church. It is urgent for us to open a dialogue with them to help them to remain faithful. The time has passed for us to be like an ostrich with our head in the sand. c) Finally, I think the problems I have raised for discussion will need a serious time of study in the Church. I am not speaking for tomorrow. I am thinking in the context of the future, the next generation, but we have to start the discussion now. Letters of Criticism Q. Will the Synod of Bishops solve the problem? A. A synod cannot solve such complex problems in a fortnight

or without serious theological preparation and then not only with theological competence. The best we can hope for is that with the help of the new Theological Commission established by Pope Paul, the synod will make a good inventory of the problem. We don't need some generic juridical tests, but simply to face the real problems of daily life. Q. There have been reports in -the press that Cardinal Tisserant has sent you a strong letter of protest and asked for a public retraction. Is that true? A. The press has carried such reports of letters from Cardinal Tisserant and other cardinals. According to these reports my interview was judged as being defamatory, disrespectful and even slanderous with regards to officials of the Roman Curia. Let me say, first of all, that difference of opinion is quite normal in the Church, but I cannot accept that my iiltentions are questioned and that a discussion which was-'about ecclesiastical structures should be considered as al} attack on personalities. I had attempted at the beginning of the interview, to anticipate such criticisms in emphasizing that I would only speak "in terms of tendencies, functions and institutions as such, rather than of personalities;" fn any case, I say again that the intentions of individuals are not under question, and to classify' them 'en bloc' would be an oversimplification. Furthermore, I mentioned in the interview that the problems of the administrative reorganization of the Church and the exercise of the ecclesiastical authority have been already questioned for many centuries, and were even brought before the First Vatican Council. It is obvious then, that I was not speaking of specific persons, but rather of structures and systems in the Church. Discussing the exercise of authority is not at all the equivalent of denying that same authority. I, therefore, consider as being totally unacceptable the accusation made against the interview, saying it was defamatory and slanderous and I therefore also see no cause for a retraction. Expression nnvitation Q. One of the main objections seems to be that regardless of whatever merits your criticisms might have there is no need for public discussions of the problems.

A. I quite admit that there can be divergence of opinion about the adequacy of public discussion of these problems. Certain people want them to be treated in very private circles and others do not want them to be discussed at all. But my answer to that criticism is that the problems are there-as public as can be. I did not bring out any secrets - the council documents already have raised .and made public many of those problems and the council wrote a strong invitation for the people 'of God to express themselves. If the Church is the people of God, then this is a normal consequence. Discussion Intolerance Frank, open and constructive dialogue, inspired by a loye of the Church and its head (Pope Paul), is a sign of vitality and strength. It is normal and healthy that there should be this open discussion about vital problems which concern the whole Church, and all the more so, when these problems are felt in their acuity and urgency all over the world, and are being publicly discussed in the press whether we like it or not. Intolerance of public discussion of these differences, under the pretext of' preserving unity, seems to me to be harmful in the present day. Honest Voices Furthermore, the numerous and positive reactions to the interview, coming from laity and priests of every rank, from at home and abroad, show that the suggestions made merely expressed the feelings of many and that, if implemented, they could help to surmount the tragic situation in which the Church finds itself today and which impedes its mission in the world, in the service of humanity. We are confident that a careful, reading of the whole original text and not falsified extracts or fragments out of context will enable one to form an objective judgment. And to conclude, it would perhaps be useful to re-read these lines of His Holiness, Pope Paul VI, by which he invited the mem·· bers of the Roman Curia "to receive criticism with humility, reflection and even gratitude. Rome has no need to defend herself by turning a' deaf ear to suggestions coming from honest voices, and all t.he more so, when they come from friendly and fraternal ones."

By Barbara Ward The Church is not unaware of the scale of the population explosion in. our day. The discovery of this fact is, after all, fairly recent. Only 30 years ago, the demographers in Western Europe, looking at countries like Britain or France or Sweden,. were Howeyer, a profounder diffiplotting the exact 'year-rin culty' would remain. Even the which these communities wisest counsel, even the most would die out since they effective methods of regulating were no longer producing enough babies 'to make up for adult deaths. It is only in the postVT a r censuses c 0 v e r i n g the whole w 0 rid community that the run way c h a rae t e r o f population growth has become apparent. Today, the prospect that by the end of the century-only 30 years away-the world's population will be growing by a billion every 10 years, has begun to change our whole understanding of the problem. 'In the introduction to Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI recognizes the potential gravity' of this vertiginous increase. The encyclical argues, however, that the "safe period" and the rhythm method, being, as it were, implanted in' 'man's biological structure, are the permissible way of dealing with th() problem of "responsible parenthood"-in other words of nofbringing more children into the world than first the family and then the local societly and then the whole planetary community can nourish, educate and support Much Is Unknown At the same time, the Encyclical recognizes that we do not yet . know all that we should about the cycles of fertility which underlie the safe period. They do, in fact, vary very greatly from woman to woman and from age ,to age group. Moreover, research has some questions to ask about the consequences of using the method withoutk~wing more about its real nature. In fact, at. the beginning of the 19th century, nobody had ever heard of the safe period and it is only gradually that research has been directed towards understandiri'g its true significance. It is for this reason that Pope Paul called in Humanae Vitae for more scientific enquiry into the whole question of the rhythm method for, Clearly, if it were possible, by improved understanding, methods and possibly drugs, to make it absolutely safe, then the result would be to abate a great deal of the controversy over the official Catholi,c position. Whether, as a result of scientific intervention, the means .." ould then be less "natural" is a question that has obvious implications for any atempt to define "natural law" in this context.

Plan to Aid All Minority Groups

In New Jersey TRENTON (NC) - In an attempt to assure the rights of all minority groups, the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights will give increasing attention to discrimination practiced against racial and ethnic groups other than Negroes. That pledge was given here by James H. Blair, division director, at a press conference where he cited discrimination against Italians, Jews and Puerto Ricans in particular. These groups, he said, "despite their economic and educational achievements are still subject to the evils of covert and overt discrimination. " His agency, he said, "regards their fight for complete equality" as one of its major functions. He said the division had received a number of housing complaints from Jewish people and that members of other ethnic groups have complained of discrimination in the employment field. Blair, a Negro, said few Puerto Ricans have brought complaints to his department, which has both investigative and enforcement powers. In order to change the situation, he said, more Spanish-speaking people will be added to his 73-man staff. He also said the division will begin launching investigations on its own before waiting for formal complaints. Surveys on discrimination in education, hospitals, nursing homes, insurance, unions, supermarkets, and public unti/ities are planned, he added. Blair also revealed that the division would seek new legislation to enable it to investigate complaints against law enforcement agencies.

Insist Upon End of Job Discri'minati@n NEWARK (NC)-The responsibility of Catholics to eliminate job discrimination has been emphasized by the Bishops of New Jersey who have called for cooperation with Project Equality, an equal opportunity employment program which was inaugurated on a statewide basis last Tuesday along with other religious hodies. "Every man, irrespective of his race, creed or color, has a . God-given right to use his talents and skills to provide for hiinself and his family the necessities of life," the Bishops averred in their pastor,,~ letter. Review Practices They noted, however, that "despite the clear teachings of our religion and the laws which we have supported in our state and in our nation to protect these rights, discrimination continues to impose 'tremendous economic hardship on millions of our brothers." Declaring that "we must practice what we preach," the Bishops asserted: "Catholic institutions have a serious responsibility to remove any discrimination in their own hiring policies and to use their purchasing power to assist other employers to recognize their moral obligation to provide equal employment opportunity for all." The four Bishops called on pastors and administrators to review their own employment practices "to ensure that persons presently employed or seeking employment are not discriminated against because of their race, color, or, except when required by the nature of their position, their religion." Multiple Causes They noted the employment practices will be reviewed by Project Equality and that criteria to assist in evaluating hiring policies will be provided. "We request all Catholics to coopernte immediately in our program," said the Bishops who directed pastors and administrators "to inform their suppliers of

.- _

goods and services of the aims and methods of this program." Discussing the existence of job bias, they declared: "Discrimination which may exist unconsciously has many causes-ignorance, deficiency in education, bad example and unreasoning fears never subjected to logical scrutiny or the light of truth.

"Positive steps are required on our pact to eliminate discrimination in employment," they asserted because it has "increased other forms of social injustice." Signing the letter were Archbishop Thomas A. Boland of Newark and Bishops George W. Ahr of Trenton, Lawrence B. Casey of Paterson and George H. Guilfoyle of Camden.

O~ ce~~~®ga@lifr11 WASHINGTON (NC) "Much of the unrest in the Church today is due to the fact that collegiality' is not always understood correctly," according to Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin, general secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. He spoke at a special Mass in St. Matthew's Cathedral here commemorating the sixth anniversary of Pope Paul VI's coronation. Collegiality, Bishop Bernardin said, "refers directly only to the relationship between the Pope and the bishops," but indirectly affects the entire Church. "For when the bishops act collegially with the Holy Father, it is understood that they will reflect !he needs, hopes and as-, pirations of the people whom they serve." "Still, it would be incorrect to conl';lude from this, as some seem to do, that collegiality implies a complete democratization of the Church," he aserted. Important Step Bishop Bernardin, in his dIscussion of collegiality, said the bishops' synod to be held 'in October will have as its purpose to discuss the relationship be'tween the episcopal conferences of each country and the Holy See, and the relationship of the conferences among themselves. "This is another important step , toward the full implementation of the concept of collegiality," he said. "But if this collaboration between the Holy Father and the bishop is to. be truly effective, both priests and faithful will have to work closely with their own bishops. "On both sides there must be complete openess and full trust and confidence. Honest criticism is needed, but it must be given in charity and the only motive must be to build up the Church, not tear it down," Bishop Bere nardin added. Members of the diplomatic corps, government officials, judges, members of Congress and other dignitaries were present at the special Mass honoring Pope Paul.

Objecting also to the inclusion of the word Catholic in the title of the party, he added that the label "United Catholic Front" could be very misleading.

Referring to the "desperate need" of Catholic schools, Archbishop Alter declared: "If our Ilonpublic schools go under,it will not only hurt the students in these particular schools but it will become a major disaster for the public schools themselves. It· will mean a tremendous increase in their enrollment and hence new taxes; 'immediate overcrowding of' classrooms; huge expenditures for new schools; an increase in teachers' salaries and at the same time a demand for many more teachers." ' Sense of Fair Play "Self-interest alone Would urge every citizen to keep the nonpublic schools alive," the arch~ bishop said. "Justice, moreover, urges it; and freedom of choice in education, together with a sense of fair play, will put the problem on a much higher level of civic virtue."

The strike is one of a series which has involved public and private workers in transportation, banking and the press, and has brought about virtual martial law. The Montevideo archdiocese is helping the families of strikers who reside, in the heavily populated borough of El Cerro in which the struck cold-storage plant is located. The strike is two months old. The strikers have received wide public support. During - a Corpus Christi procession groups of youths asked the public to coop~rate with-- the strikers.

Archbishop Alter added: "If the legisiature will allocate $100 to each child in the non public schools, these schools can survive; moreover, not one cent will be used for religious education but for secular subjects only and such as are approved by the state board of education." He expressed confidence that "if everyone understands the situation, then a fair share of the tax dollar will be made available to all children and the nonpublic schools c;an continue in existence."

NEW YORK (NC)-Four years ago Bishop Joseph Blomjous, W.F., of Mwanza, Tanganyika, resigned in favor of his auxiliary.

It would seem natural for him to seek in retirement a "little peace and quiet." Instead he travels the world attending chapters of Religious, lecturing on the introduction. to modern missions and spreading his enthusiasm and interest in "updating the clergy of the East- , ern Church." "roving" Described as a bishop, the energetic Joseph Blomjous is constantly on the go. When he wants a few weeks of quiet, he said, "I go to Jerusalem." Interviewed during a brief . stop-oyer ,in New York last week in the office of the Catholic Neal' East Welfare Association, the prelate admitted there is a need for updating the clergy everywhere; but emphasized that there is an "even greater need to update the Oriental and Orthodox clergy of the Eastern Church. "Ecumenically this is important, but it is not only for the question of unity. We must go back further than that and make the Christian Church relevant in the modern world. This is especially important in the Middle East."

Seek to Aid DENVER (NC) - Archbishop James V. Casey of Denver has requested aides to prepare a "practical program" to help disadvantaged Mexican - American students. The action by Archbishop Casey resulted from a demand by a student group that the archdiocese contribute $100,000 to set up a scholarship fund for needy students. Archbishop Casey met with representatives of the United Mexican American Students (UMAS), a student organization at the University of Colorado Denver Center.

The Evaluating Committee is a group of lay advisors which makes recommendations to the archbishop on the allocation of a $1 million fund set aside to aid the city's disadvantaged. A statement issued by the student group said it "is demanding that the Catholic Church become involved with the problems of the Chicanos (Spanish-speaking youths) in Colorado and not just give lip service."

Some 40 UMAS students waited outside the chancery office while Archbishop Casey was meeting with three representatives of the group.

Settle Another issue at College

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs., July 10,1969

JERSEY CITY (NC) - One by one the causes for which the students at St. Peter's College staged a lengthy strike this Spring are being pulled out from under them by those on whose behalf the demands were made. The latest lost cause is that of Father Daniel Kilfoyle, S.J., who has revealed that he' will leave St. Peter's to teach at Colgate University in the Fall. Before the strike began, Father Kilfoyle announced that he had applied for separation from the Jesuit order and the priesthood and that he had asked for a contract as a layman from St. Peter's. College authorities said they would make no decision on that request, however, until Fr. Kilfoyle's clerical status was cleared up. When they started their strike in April, students had as one of their demands the offering of a contract to Father Kilfoyle. The priest himself was active in the strike in support of student demands. College authorities acceded to the demand and offered Father Kilfoyle a contract. But now, he said, he does not wish to teach at. St. Peter's. "I have every reihson to think that the administration of the college is not' seriously interested in promoting the study of religion and theology in a genuinely free academic atmosphere," he said.

"He must be a good mixer," the majority said. "He must enjoy the company of ordinary folk. People are more important , than administration. "The bishop s~ould not be tied to his desk. ' "No priest wants a bishop who regards modern youth as rebellious and lacking moral standards!' ' As for a bishop's intelligence, the poll called for "normal intelligence" as against "a high IQ." He must above all be "deeply spiritual", and also "sympathetic," it said. He should have spent Jive to 10 years in parochial work, should have a relatively progres-

Real Leader He should have soine pastoral experience outside of parish work, such as chaplain to a 'univer?ity, a convent or a jail and he should have administrative experience, preferably as a pastor or else in a diocesan office. He should not have spent too much time in academic work, should regard the laity as partners, encourage the development of deanery and parochial structures and be distinctly concerned with the problems and aspirations of youth. In general the priests of the Brentwood diocese said they want a bishop from among the ranks of the parochial clergy, capable of knowing his priests and people and of being a real leader:

Shared Churches LONDON (NC) - The British Council of Churches and a Catholic working group including two bishops have met to discuss the possibilities' of ecumenical cooperation, including shared churches 'in the new suburban spi)lover towns now being planned in this country. The conferen.ce generally expressed the view that such cooperation was essential in view of the sheer impossibility of the churches finding capital costs for separate denominational development. But it was also appreciated that shared buildings and perhaps joint parishes' and areas of ecumenical experiment raise theological problems. One major problem was inter-communion. Animated discussion followed the desire of some to share in an "agape" or love-feast as an expression of fellowship in a situationwhere all cannot yet receive Holy Communion together.

Publish Pope John's Notes On Bergamo Bishop Radini

$882,378 Grant 1'0 AidJ .Agency

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy

NEWARK (NC) - A federal grant of $882,378 has been given to the Mt. Carmel Guild, social welfare agency of the Newark archdiocese, to cover the firstyear cost of staffing its new $3 million Community Mental Health Center here. Msgr. Joseph A. Dooling, guild director, announced the grant and said that the Department of Health, Education and Welfare would share in the staffing costs for the first five years. He said that under the federal program the guild will receive a decreasing amount for staffing the five-story center, which is due to open in September. The first-year amount represents about 75 per cent of staffing costs, Msgr. Dooling said. The guild will provide the rest of the funds. The mental health center is expected to service 200,000 people, offering patient care, emergency and diagnostic services, partial hospitalization, out-patient services for children and adults, rehabilitation services and other programs.

Giacomo Radini Tedeschi was appointed Bishop路 of Bergamo, in Northern Italy, in 1905. He was consecrated in Rome, where he had been serving in the curia, and one of the assistants at the ceremony was a young Bergamasque priest named Angelo Roncalli. Bishop Radini took Toward the end, he became more patient, and sympathetic. Father Roncalli to Bergamo wary, Resignation to Death with him, and appointed him Some of the lessons which Ra-

his secretary. This position Roncalli held until the bishop's death in 1914.2 years later, Roncalli published a set of "biographical notes" about the late bishop. Roncalli's later fame as Pope John XXIII has now led to the translation 0 f these notes and their publication under the title My Bishop (McGraw-HilI. 330 W. 42nd Street, New York, N.Y. 10036. $6.95). Someone has styled the work "the best thing the Pope ever wrote." That is a very dubious opinion. Pope John's spiritual journal far surpasses this tribute in every respect. The young Father Roncalli was deeply devoted to his bishop, admired him greatly, and wrote about him discreetly. He heaped praise upon Radini's memory, and surely at times exaggerated (as, for example, in the number of addresses which he says Radini gave during the Holy Year of 1900). Radini the person does peep through the eulogy which his former secretary composed. Now and again, a detail is given which lets us see the human being (for example, Radini, even as a bishop, doing his own mending). There are only a couple of anecdotes, occurring rather late in the book, which permit us to observe Radini in a specific situation, doing or saying a specific thing. For the rest, its largely generalization. Hard-Working Churchman Radini was of an aristocratic and moneyed family. Ordained in 1897, he taught in the seminaries of Bedonia and Piacenza. Leo XIII 'brought him to Rome in 1900, and there he pursued an almost incredibly busy round. With the advent of Pius X in 1903, Radini seems to have lost favor. He was proposed for two of the more important sees in Italy, then assigned to Bergamo. His career as bishop is sketched not consecutively but in a路 departmental way: a chapter on his pastoral visitations, another on the building he did, a third on his seminary policy, and so on. He was involved in social action, but we do not get enough of the concrete background and circumstances to know what the difficUlties were, and what the accomplishments. So, too, with the troubled political situation. Pius X laid down the non expedit rule which required Catholics to abstain from voting; this was not followed in Bergamo. Was it this or something else which led to the positive disfavor that overshadowed Radini's last years? The situation is only gingerly hinted at. Radini seems to have been a gifted, high-principled, hard路 working churchman. He also appears to have been rather aloof and severe. He ruled in an almost military sort of way, and never asked or welcomed advice.

dini taught Father Roncalli were not learned precisely as intended. "He was not a man to turn a blind eye," his secretary wrote. But as pope, Roncalli showed that he knew when to turn a blind eye. He said as much when. someone questioned him on the subject. . One can conclude from the account of Radini's death (apparently of cancer) that his young assistant never forgot the calmness and complete resignation of the bishop as he faced the end. When, almost a halfcentury later, it: came Roncalli's turn to die, he edified the whole world by demonstrating the same qualities at the same pass. A fuller, more personal, more colorful biography of. Radini would be welcome, particularly in what it would tell of the relations between him and the man destined to be pope. As it is, there is just enough of Roncalli in this restricted memoir to make it rewarding to the admirers of the magnificent John XXIII. Psychiatry, Clergy For fifteen years there has been an annual Institute for Mental Health at St. John's Abbey in Minnesota. This has brought together psychiatrists and clergymen of various churches in order to help the later in pastoral . counseling. Nineteen of the many psychiatrists who have participated in these sessions have now contributed to a book, Psychiatry, the Clergy, and Pastoral Counseling, edited by Dr. Dana L. Farnsworth and Dr. Francis J. Braceland (St. John's University Press. Collegeville, Minn. $6.50). Its purpose is twofold "to furnish the clergyman or other counselor with a summary of basic knowledge about human beings and their quandaries" and "to illustrate how a fifteen-year dialogue between clergymen and psychiatrists and psychologists was organized and maintained." Pastoral Counseling An introductory chapter outlines the history of psychiatry and its relations with religion. Next, the development of the institute at S1. John's is described. Then comes a 3plendid chapter on the techniques of pastoral counseling. One would hope that many celrgymen will read the book straight through, and return to it fairly frequently. But this chapter on techniques should be required reading for all of them. It is direct, practical, comprehensive. Its list of do's and don'ts should be mastered by anyone who has to do any counseling. Other chapters deal with the emotional probelms of children, adolescents, young adults, the family, older adults, the middle aged, the aging and aged, the dying. There are chapters on depression, suicide, alcoholism, drugs, sex education, the paranoid parishioner, the unwed mother. Invaluable Insights A路 chapter on confidentiaity spells out the obligation of secrecy incumbent on the counselor, and the mode and degree o.f com-

Diocese Sponsoring Low

FRESNO (NC)-The Fresno Diocese will sponsor a $1.5 million dollar lowincome housing project in southwest Fresno. The Church's entry into the field of low-income housing sponsorship resulted from the statement of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops on the N~tional Race Crisis, April 25, 1968, which emphasized lack of decent housing, deplorat;~ living conditions in cities and rural communities, and housing segregation. The project is the first of several scheduled for sponsorship in the eight-county California diocese. Catholic Charities and the diocese will provide the neces-

sary "seed money" to begin the project. Essential Need Located on a seven and a half acre site in southwest Fresno, the project will feature 80 to 100 units, depending upon the design, size and land arrangement. The property is within one of Fresno City's Redevelopment Agency parcels. Catholic Charities' involvement in housing is a manifestation of the organization's desire to meet the most essential needs of people living in the diocese.

FAIRHAVEN LUMBER CO.

LONDON (NC) - Compass, a small group of laymen who help ex-priests and nuns, has reported that over the past four years the group had seen 192 priests and nuns who had decided to leave the religious life. They are at present receiving an average of three to four applications for help each week. "<;:elibacy is the main issue," said Douglas Gibson, the group's administrator. "Seventy per cent of the priests who have come to us are now married." Compass, whose members' are voluntary and which operates on the little money it can get from the public, seeks especially to help former Religious fi.nd work and accommodation. \
