Dioceses Sent Job Guidelines WASHINGTON (NC) - The National Conference of Catholic 'Bishops and its civil action arm, the U.S. Catholic Conference, have adopted affirmative action guidelines designed to guarantee equal opportunity for minorities in employment practices. The NCCB has sent the guidelines to all U.S. dioceses as models in developing local plans. The guidelines affect all aspects of NCCB-USCC personnel policy and include specific steps to recruit minority job applicants. Many dioceses already have equal employment opportunity policies, but not many actively . '. recruit minorities, according to Msgr. Aloysius Welch, director of the National Catholic Conference for Interracial Justice. While the NCCB-USCC guidelines deal primarily with internal personnel policies, they also say the conferences will not deal with "suppliers of goods and services" who discriminate. . According . to a report filed with the Eq}1al Employment Opportunity Commission last April, 110 of the 299 NCCB-USCC employees are black, Hispanic or Asian. Twenty three of 160 professionals and 87 of 139 support workers belong to minority groups: The guidelines result from the bishops' bicentennial program which recommended adoption of, an affirmative action plan. The introduction says "In our effort to secure the human Fights rooted in our tradition, we will be prompted not merely by the demands of civil law, but by the moral imperative inherent in that tradition. "It will be the continued policy' of the NCCB-USCC that there be no discrimination because of race, color, sex, national origin, an individual's handicap or age," ~e guidelines said. The guidelines said the NCCBUSCC personnel director or his designee will examine all firings, transfers and demotions to see that they do not involve discrimination. Steps to improve recruiting of minority applicants will include stating that the conference is an equal opportunity employer in all job .advertisements; advising employment agencies of the equal opportunity policy; contacting organizations which train minority workers.' In a cover letter to bishops who head dioceses, Bishop Thomas Kelley, NCCB-USCC general secretary, said the 1964 .Civil Rights Act allows religious organizations to take religion into account in hiring and recruiting practices. A spokesman for the NCCBusec personnel office said the conferences do not yet have a plan for enforcing the guidelines on suppliers, although many church agencies work with Project .Equality, a church organizatio.n in Kansas City, Mo., which compiles a directory of companies which do not discriminate.

St. Louis Prelate Has Resigned Pope John Paul II has accepted the resignation of Cardinal John Carberry, .archbishop of St. Louis, who was 75 on July 31. :Born in 'Brooklyn, he was ordained for that diocese in 1929. He studied canon law at the Catholic University of America. In 1956 he was named auxiliary bishop of Lafayette, La., succeeding to that see the following year. In 1965 he was appointed bishop of Columbus, O. and three years later became archbishop of St. Louis. He was created a cardinal in 1969.

But Holy Ghost Father Vincent J. Donovan, who served in Tanzania and intends to return to Africa, rejects that approach. He sees these church institutions as flowing from the Gospel, not preceding it. So, Father Donovan would present to the people the "naked Gospel," offering them nothing but Christian belief and faith. ' For most of the years he spent in Tanzania working among the seminomadic Masai people, that was his approach. The Masai considered the African people most unlikely to accept Chrisianity and Western missionaries. Yet, at one time,Father Donovan was the priest for as many as 30 scattered Catholic Masai

communities, able to visit each of them only once a month. The story of his work among the Masai and his convictions about how the church should function in mission lands are -examined in Father' Donovan's book, "Christianity Rediscovered," published by the FidesClaretian Press at Notre Dame, Ind. Father Donovan said, in an interview with the Dayton Catholi,c Telegraph, that "nobody really questioned" the church's method of "bringing education on a vast scale to an upderdeveloped country." Education became the main door to Christianity. 'But the Masai, with their own culture and Ilfestyle, rejected the schools and in the process rejected Christianity." He recalled an experience of one mission where many had gone through Christian schools

In the sixth century St. Columba and his disciples landed on lona and from there spread Christianity to Scotland. It is also the location where many Scottish kings are buried, including MacBeth, the figure upon which Shakespeare based his play. The island was recently acquired by the Fraser Foundation after it had been put on sale by trustees of the previous owner, the late Duke of Argyll. The sale did not include the 12th century abbey and its lands and buildings. These were bequeathed in 1899 to the lona Cathedral trustees. The abbey and its buildings were in ruins at the time. They were restored by the trustees, but over the years Atlantic storms and ~ad weather have made repairs necessary.

The priest recalled he gave them no gifts becau~e the Masai identified this as the image of the missionaries. His request was to talk to them about God. It was a "severe method" but one that "opened doors," he said. Father Donovan invited the Masai to tell him their ideas of God. Then he told them what he believed, eventually presenting the Gospel message.

the living word

themoorin~ One but Different The fact that people often refer to the American church rather than to the church in America is more than mere coincidence. The Catholic church in the United States is truly a distinctive and unique member of the universal church family, with its own flavor and follies quite apart from the mind and mood of the church in 'other lands. Often it is misunderstood and misquoted because others just do not realize that there is no other reflection' of the Catholic church in the world quite like that of the United States. . " As the world media prepare to cover the coming visit of Pope John Paul II to this different pasture of his shepherding, it would be well for them to make some attempt to learn of the American church with all its '- variables and varieties. . The Holy Father will be visiting what could be termed "people" church, not a elite or clerically dominated church such as often has been the case in other lands. For the better part of its life in this country the church has been truly people oriented. This perhaps is due to the fact that our church did 'not spring from American soil but was imported, as was everything else pertaining to the concept "American." It was and basically still is an immigrant church, with people from every ethnic background coming together only in our day with any semblance of unity and understanding. . National diversity has played a definitive role for better or worse, in molding the image conjured up when we refer to the Catholic church in'the United States. Th.is indeed . ' makes us different. Yet there are other important factors that must be taken into consideration if we 'are' to have any hope that others will see us as we are and 'not in some factitious flight of fancy. For instance, many Catholics in this land have been educated in a truly unique parochial school system from preschool to the postgraduate level, a school system that brought immigrants into the mainstream of American life owing nothing to public education. This indeed is something European Catholicism neve.r experienced. And the American church did all this on its own without support of the state. Whereas in other lands the church depends on state support, American Catholics for 'the most part not only survived but thrived on the policy of separation of church and state. But it has not been easy for' the church in America. From the very outset it has had to fight for each success with a government more than prejudicial and often openly hostile. Yet this has proved a blessing, since it forged thaL unique link with Rome that is so very much a hallmark of American Catholics. To be sure, the church in this country faces some grave difficulties and will indeed be路 challenged by the person ~d mind of the present Holy Father. The spirit that prevails in some areas of American church life flows in direct opposition to JQhn Paul II. However, when all is said and done, one can always depend on the average American Catholic to be a faithful witness to the see of Peter, with all that this implies. These are but a few of the characteristics that make the church in this land so uniquely American. Yes, we are one, but we are also very different.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland The capital of the British province of Northern Ireland is a sick city.' The first thing that struck me going to Northern Ireland was an apparent lack of security.

All had rifles ready.. The tension tells on the troops. The evening of my arrival, a British soldier broke under the strain, ran out of his coinmand post and began shooting. He seriously wounded a young Catholic. In April, 12 soldiers and policemen were killed in one of '. the worst months in six years in terms of casualties to security forces. In the last 10 years, nearly 2,000 persons have been killed in Northern Ireland. Because of the continuing violence, Britain still has 13,000 troops in the province.

of the mood of American society. Carter spoke of a "crisis of confidence" in American institutions and a lack of common purpose, and if Carter's diagnosis was partly designed to help politically, the religious leaders did not question its accuracy. They made a statement at a press conference the morning after the talk in which they pledged themselves to:' - Conserve energy in religious institutions. - Adopt -simpler lifestyles. - Develop plans to help those

hurt by rising fuel prices. -'Press Congress .for action on energy issues. "We pray and we trust," they said "that God will inspire' our people to follow a more modest way of life, free from dependency on luxuries mistaken for necessities. We profess loyalty to a standard higher than mere materialism. History has called on us to demonstrate that we mean what we profess. It is up to us to lead, to demonstrate the reality of oQr moral commitment."

Carter, his top aides and speech writers met with the religious leaders for three hours and the conversation .stretched

Persecution Toll Continued from ,Page One cion; which gives names, dates, places and in most cases indentifies those responsible for the acts of persecution. . Previously, the Catholic publication reported on hundreds of lay leaders who have arrested, tortured, killed and missing after arrest. Military' go~ernment agencies linked by the paper to the church persecution include the. National Guard, the National Police, military intelligence, migration authorities, the armed forces and paramilitary squadrons. A statement signed by the Priests' Council of San Salvador said that January 1977 marked the end of a tradition of respect for the church in El Salvador and the beginning of "a systematic persecution." The council adds that this is perhaps due to the "deep awareness since Vatican II of the church's prophetic role of helping the poor, of awakening the people to their rights and dignity, which is seen by the rich as a threat to their interests." The priests cited the support given to land reform projects by the Jesuits for the killing of Father Rutilio Grande, a Jesuit, and death threats against' 50 other Jesuits in the country. Also threatened with death was Archbishop Romero for his defense of the poor. His homilies over the Catholic radio station are being jammed. He has been nominated by legislators in Europe and. the United States, and by human rights organizations, for the 1979 Nobel 'Peace' Prize.

Interesting Reorganization Of Archdiocese TORONTO (NC) - The appointment of three new auxiliary bishops for the Toronto Archdiocese comes in conjunction with a major reorganization of the See, the first of its kind in Canada, launched by Cardinal G. Emmett Carter. The new bishops, all with long pastoral and administrative experience in Toronto, are Msgr. Michael Pearse Lacey, rector of St. Michael's Cathedral; Father Leonard James Wall, vicar g~n­ eral and chancellor of financial affairs; and Father Robert' Bell Clune, president of [the Catholic Church Extension Society. They join Auxiliary Bishop Aloysius M. Ambrozic. Cardinal Carter, h~ad of the largest English-speaking diocese i~ Canada, said the archdiocese has grown so large "our problem is we can't serve all the people many of our churches are jammed to the doors."

The cardinal said he will diride the sprawling diocese into three regions with an auxiliary bishop in charge of each. Bishop Ambrozic will head the central region and continue his archdiocesanwide responsibilitY to ethnic communities."Bishopdesignate Lacey will take charge of the west region and also be responsible for personnel in the whole archdiocese.. Bishop-designate Clune will be bishop in the east region as well as vicar for . Religious and director of permanent deacons. Bishop-elect Wall will continue as temporal chancellor of the archdiocese in addition to being named administrative assistant to the archbishop. Cardinal Carter stressed that the move is not a division in a technical sense but "a pastoral allocation of responsibility and an attempt to make sure there is episcopal leadership as close to the scene of action as possi. ble."

The division is a first for a Canadian diocese, although it has been done in a few metropolitan areas in the United States and Europe. The Toronto type of reorganization,' first done in Paris, followed a close study of two U.S. archdioceses, Boston and Detroit. "I am asking each auxiliary. bishop (in the regions) to assume all the responsibilities of a residential .bishop inasmuch as this can be done while maintaining the unity of the archdiocese." Cardinal Carter said. "In a word, he will be the chief pastor of these parishes and institutions which are within the co.nfines of his territory . . . In this new fashion ev~ry­ one will have access to a bishop who will be, in effect, his pastor."

-' Sing-Ie Parent Tells Her Story MCSHERRYTOWN, Pa. (NC) , :.- She was single, a teacller and nervously awaiting the ar-· rival of her first child. Mary Furlong, in 1971, was the first in her area to be in that situation. She lost friends. But the love she has gotten from her adopted daughter Rachael, who is black and now 15 years old, compensated for that. So much so, in fact, that about two years ago Miss Furlong, a teacher of social science at Delone Catholic High School in McSherrytown, Pa., adopted a second daughter, a biracial child named Judy, who is now 12. Raising a family alone is rough at times, admits Miss Furlong, who prefers to be known as a parent rather than as a mother, but it's' also something .she would not change. Miss Furlong traces her interest in adoption to her own fam-

i1y and her profession. She was raised with a strong sense of service to the community. "It may sound corney," she said, "but when I die, I want to leave people on whom I've had an influence. I feel a responsibility as a human to make this world a better place for my having been there." Her other motivation comes from teaching. "You see a 16t of kids (in school) and you want to have some influence on their lives. But you only toucp part of them - you only touch. them academically. Once in a while you become good friends with someone, but that will only last for three or four years. I wanted more than that." Althoug~ Miss Furlong said her teaching has put her ahead of some" parents on being able to communicate with teens, "I'm learning on the job," she noted.

"But .y enjoy it. U's not easy but being a teacher in high school has made it easier." There are disadvantages with being a single parent. "It's tough being the only driver in the family and having to be the one to drive to the 4-H or doctor ... " There are also bright spots. "I really have the time to devQte to them with whatever situation comes up. I have time to spend with. them and try to explore alternatives to behavior. That is the greatest strength." Miss Furlong has also received some nice benefits from her children. "They've helped me to grow as' a person. r hope I am more loving and open as a result." , Rachael and Judy have a simpIe approach to their relation-, ship with Miss Furlong. "We just think of her as Mom," Rachael said smiling.

By Father John Dietzen Q. About five years ago we brought our daughter and her I8-month-old child from Florida to live with us. A neighbor of our daughter had called telling us she had taken our daughter to get stitches in her chin. We dldn't realize the situation, but our daughter's husband had been abusing her for over a year. She had tried to stay with him since she felt she should live with her husband. Now it seems there is no hope for that. We understand that the diocesan marriage court decides if there are grounds for a marriage annulment. Could you . suggest what action we might take? (01.) A. You do not give many de-

tails, but I have found that whenever there is serious physical abuse, particularly early in marriage, there are often also other psychQlogical problems that make an annulment at least worth investigating. Your first move should .be to contact your parish priest, explain the situation, and ask his advice. He will guide amd help you through: the procedures which, as you indicate, are under the responsibility of the marriage court of your diocese. If it is impossible to contact a parish priest near you, you may write, directly to the diocesan marriage court and explain the circumstances. I am sure they will help arrange at· least an initial interview with someone. Q. I am deeply hurt by some

people in our church who don't think I' give enough money in the collection. I almost died three years ago and cannot work as hard as I used to. I do try to give what I can to poor people. I know some people laugh at me when I give 25 cents a week in the collection, and 25 cents in the poor box. I am old, and spend a lot for medicine, but I feel I spend more money on poor people in a month than those who laugh at me spend in a year. What can I do? (La.)

Rhodesian Martyrs By Father Joseph Champlin In 1978 a German-born nurse and nun, Sister Ferdinanda volunt~ered for a post in a Rhodesian 'mission hospital, even though well aware it might mean for her a violent martyrdom. Only two months later, the 50-year-old missionary Sister of the Precious Blood suffered that fate, the victim of a violent, terrifying raid. She and a physician were attending patients when some apparently drugged or drunken men broke into the hospitai ward. They forced the doctor out at gun point, shot him, then ordered Sister Ferdinanda' to ,raise her hands above her head. As she walked down the stairs and away from the structure, someone shot her several times through the head, shoulder and "IF THE OTHER refuses to accept my words of reconciliation, so ,be it.

How Can I Forgive?

Representatives from the religious community went to Ger- , many with some hesitation to inform Ferdinanda's 80-year-old mother about her daughter's death. The faith-filled woman simply, replied: ",I prefer that my child died for Christ rather than be unfaithful to him. Soon I will be reunited with her." Unfortunately, this, martyrdom has been frequently repeated in Rhodesia. My partner and I concluded our South Africa and Rhodesia lecture tour Aug. 10, the date of my own baptism and the feast of St. Lawrence, the deacon martyr. During the course of a closing liturgy, one of the sisters remarked: "We celebrate to-, day the feast of a martyr.

Judas

II

By Father: John J. Castelot

o

In all the lists of the apostles in the New Testament, Peter is named first and Judas last. Not that they were at completely opposite ends of the spectrum; both suffered from a lack of faith leading to disillusionment and rejection. Peter repented and subsequently enjoyed resurrection faith, while Judas' remorse apparently led' to despair. Apparently; he really don't know. And this points up a sharp Turn to Page Thirteen


For Children

Fr. Boylan Continued from Page Twelve a scholar who understood the processes of mental prayer and could communicate a guidance that rang true. He 8welt on questions of distrac~ions, elation and depression the value of the imagination and the patience needed when images gave way to inner repose. He, a contemplative, assured thousands of activists that they could and should meditate. Father Boylan did not come by the simplicity and beauty of his writing style easily. He writes, "As a Cistercian, writing is a part-time job. And a Cistercian has no spare time. The Divine Office takes six hours a day. Add to that the daily work period and the time needed for one's personal prayer. Cistercian silence and the use of signs take away one's facility for the use of words. Reading Latin and French does not help the flow of English. I find my pen becoming m6re and more clumsy. The more I have to say, the fewer words I have with which to say it. Besides, I can only write at night time, and the Cistercian day ends at seven i'n winter and eight in summer." 'Nevertheless he continued to write, with some material resulting from conferences he gave as a retreat master. Despite his disclaimer of being unable to find words, he· is remembered as a language stylist. In "This Tremendous Lover," Father Boylan touched a responsive nerve among those who .yearned to hear about a God who loved them. This book liberated readers from unwarranted fears of a threatening God. He told .people about Christ's forgiving love and called them to return this love. In his final years he had two goals: to persuade Catholics of the need for a spiritual life and to help restore metaphysics (in the Aristotelian sense) and its influence to the intellectual life of Europe and America. He who thought "persons were more important than things," also saw the need for an abstract metaphysics to help the processes of thinking reach the truth. This priest-scientist made a large wave at mid-20th century. He deserves a fresh hearing today.

Martyrs Continued from Page Twelve olics, particularly missionaries. I· discovered instead great joy, a radiant happiness equalled only in the kingdom of Lesotho where poverty, not persecution, dominates the scene. Their spirit of forgiveness and .trust resembled the attitude of early ~issionaries described in the Ads of the Apostles. ."As Stephen was being stoned . he could be heard praying, . 'Lord Jesus, receive my spirit! . He fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice, 'Lord, do not hold this sin against them!' And with that he died." Acts 7, 59-60. "The apostles for their part left Ute Sanhedrin full of joy that they had been judged worthy of ill-treatment for the sake of the name." Acts 5,41.

New Series To Start Tying in with the family themes that have been selected for special emphasis by the American bishops, a new Know Your Faith series to start this fall in The Anchor will address such issues as family unity, spreading the Good News of the gospels, developing spirituality and interacting witb others. The current theme for the series is the public ministry of Jesus. Written by foremost writers and educators, Know Your Faith is carried by diocesan ,newspapers throughout the country. It reaches some three million readers each week. The new series will include the following ~tegories: - Awareness articles on current situations and questions. Among' topics to be treated will be men's. and women's roles in a changing

world, sex before marriage, and parenthood. - Caring and Ministering ways to develop a deeper caring for one another and a better understanding of the ministries each is called to fulfill. _ - Biblical Insight articles based on Scripture passages applying to the theme e,f ~e week. - Family Portraits, articles about individuals, fandlies and groups, often unknown outside their communities, who are successfully meeting the challenges of life. - For Children: articles retelling in simple language the material of the Biblical Insight articles. Know Your Faith is endorsed by the United States Catholic Conference and the National Conference of Catholic Biships.

Judas Continued from .Page Twelve contrast between them: Peter comes through to us as thoroughly open, transparent; Judas is opaque, dark, mysterious. Judging from the confused portrait of the betrayer in the New Testament, he was just as much a mystery to the early church. The tradition preserved few factual memories about him. ,But it had some few data at its disposal, and those data called for explanation. Here was a man deliberately chosen by Jesus, an intimate who for some strange reason and in some mysterious way turned on him. How could he have done such a thing? The only explanation the Gospels offer is not exactly compelling. In the scene of the anointing at Bethany, the fourth Gospel specifies Judas as the one who objected to the waste of precious ointment. And the editors, some 70 years after the fact, explain parenthetically: "He did not say this out of concern for the poor, but because he was a thief. He held the purse, and used to help himself to what was deposited there" (John 12, 6).

The same motif of greed comes through in Matthew's story of his having picked up 30 pieces of silver for his treachery. But this, too, was a paltry sum, and the evangelist seems to have hit upon it because of its association' with Zecharian 11,12-13. Luke (22:3). and John (13,2,27) shift the blame to Satan, but this is a theological, explanation of sorts, not a pistorical or psychological one. In all four Gospels Judas leads the crowd that arrests Jesus, and the synoptic tradition has him identifying. the victim by a kiss of greeting. That kiss must have pierced Jesus heart more deeply 'than the solder's spear. It must have heen one of the most excruciating tortures of' his passion. To be crucified by his en-

emies was bad enough, but to be betrayed by a dear friend, by one "who had dipped his hand. in the dish with" him - that was real agony. Yet not one Gospel has him reacting angrily; he is simply burt beyond words.' The evangelists, especially John, picture him as knowing all along this was going to happen; but this, too, smacks more of theology than history. He had not selected a traitor; he had chosen an apostle, one whom he loved as much as the others, one for whom he had high hopes. If he had, as seems likely, disappointed Judas, the apostle, in his tum, had more than disappointed him. Inevitably, legends grew up around this sinister, pitable character. The early Christians reasoned that someone so evil must have died a shameful death. Two of the resulting traditions are recorded for posterity, one in Matthew (27,3-10), according to which he hanged himself, and another in Acts 1, 18, according to which he died a gruesome death in a field which he had purchased. However he died, he is presented as a grim warning to all: There is sometb.ing of Judas in . all of us, especially when we insist that the Lord adapt himself to our plans or else. It .would seem this was Judas' undoing: He had dreamed of Jesus' being a messiah of a different kind, and when he saw his dreams vanish, disappointment turned to violent resentment. And we are warned' also against that insufferable smugness that would 'pt;esume - or worse, vindictively hope - that the poor fellow died in unrepentant despair.

Meditation "If our faith is to be made

vivid, it must be ,by meditation," - John Chapman

Continued from Page Twelve Jesus. They gave Judas 30 pieces of silver in return. Judas now waited for the right moment. He did not have to wait long. After the Passover meal, Jesus went to a secluded olive grove to pray. It was called Gethsemane or the Garden of Olives. He took with him only three of his friends. It was dark. So Judas led a band of armed men to Gethsemane, as they approached the garden, they vvondered how they would recognize Jesus in the dark. Judas said, "The one I go up to and kiss, th~t is Jesus. Hold him tight." The mob broke into the quiet olive grove. Judas went right up to Jesus. "Peace, rabbi," he said as he kissed Jesus. Jesus looked at Judas sadly. "Friend, do what you are here for," he said quietly. Just then men .surrounded Jesus and tied him up. The next morning Judas was shocked to hear that the Jewish leaders had condemned Jesus to death. This was not what he had expected. Judas thought they would just keep Jesus quiet until the Romans could be overthrown. He had no idea they wanted to kill Jesus. So he huried back to the chief priests. '\1 did wrong in betraying an innocent man," he confessed.' They laughed at him. "That's Y0l.\r problem." they said. So Judas threw the 30 silver pieces on the floor of the temple and ran out. . • He was desperate. He felt trapped. He loved Jesus. He did not want Jesus killed. Yet he had betrayed Jesus. He felt he had been tricked. He felt guilty. As he ran through the city streets, he panicked. Some people say he took a rope and hanged him-· self.

In just 93 minutes Dugan and his robot explain 16 centuries of history, save the fair lady's imprisoned father, introduce Mordred to a laser gun, play havoc with Merlin's morale and throw in enough moats and jousting knights to delight children and adults, medieval'ists and sci-,fi fans.

Pope Is Praised, _ By Billy Graham, '----~~-'-., NASHVILLE, Tenn. (NC) The Rev. Billy -Graham said the reaction of the people of Poland to Pope John Paul II's visit was . a manisfestation of a worldwide spiritual revival. Dr. Graham. made the comment while in Nashville for the start of the Nashville-eentral South Crusade at Vanderbilt's Dudley Stadium.' Catholic Bishop James D. Niedergeses of Nashville welcomed the well-known evangelist and asked for God's blessings on the crusade. Dr. Graham spoke highly of _ the pope. "No other hum~n .being in the world could do what he did in Poland and Mexico," he said. He told Th~ Tennessee Register, the diocesan newspaper, tnat he would like to talk to the pope if he visits the United States in September, but Dr. Graham said he would have to wait for an invitation. "You don't just call up and say . I'd like to meet the pope," he said. Dr. Graham said the primary reason he brought the crusade to Nashville, where there is one church for every 683 people, was "because Christians must be dedicated to Christ. As Pope John Paul I said on the last day of his life, "One priority of the church must be to evangelize those already baptized.' I think that's true in \ the Protestant church as well.

Church Suffers In Mozambique. KINSHASA, Zaire (NC) - Relations between the Christian churches and the Mozambique government have been det~riora­ ting this year, according ~o a story in Documentation and Information for and About Africa (DIA), a newsletter about Christianity in Africa. ) During 1979 so far, 15 Catholic churches, the country's only Anglican Cathedral and three Presbyterian churches have been closed down, said DIA. The only Catholic seminary was forced to close because all 20 students were drafted into the armed forces. . Since gaining independence from Portugal in 1975, Mozambique has been ruled by the Mozambique Liberation Front,' a Marxist-Leninist group. State restrictions on religion have been especially hard on the Catholic Church, which the government considers to have been too closely alligned' to Portuguese. colonialism.
