Council Considers Colle iality Vatican Signs Concordat With Hungary

In an historic communique, Osservatore Romano announced that the Vatican and the People's Republic of Hungary had come to an agreement for the first time in 15 years. According to the agreement, the Holy See would have at least partial adminis­ trative authority over the Church in Hungary. S,ince the conviction of Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty in a spectacular

Pontiff Stresses Work of Spirit

Evolution-not revolution -is to be the result of the Council. This was the core of Pope Paul's talk and action at the opening of the Third Ses­ sion of the Vatican Council. This spirit must spur the bishops in their debates and it must also temper those who seek but the spectacular. To seek reform is not to betray the Church. Collegiality and Christian Unity occupie<fthe Holy Father's thoughts and 00 all he applied the same principle-evolution, not revolution. The Father,s assembled in council should be confident in their deliberations that through them the Holy Spirit is acting. "The Church is here."

Rome in no way could direct Church affairs in that Commu­ nist country. Within minutes of the signing, the Vatican announced that Pope Paul VI appointed five new bishops to Hungarian posts and confirmed an appointment pre­ viously made' by Pope John XXIII.

The changes announced in­ cluded the transfer of Bishop Hamvas of Csanad to the see of Kalocsa and the foliowing ap­ pointments: Msgr.

Says So. America Is More Aware Of Red Threat

Prelates Ask End Of Racia I Bias

LOS ANGELES (NC) The exiled Auxiliary Bishop of Havana says those who are helping Cuban refugees are giving a beautiful exam­ ~e of Christian comradeship and unity in love of God. . Bishop Eduardo Boza Mas­ wdal called aid to refugees "una labor muy hermose." The Los Angeles archdiocese ranks .second in the nation in the num­ ber of resettled Cuban refugees. The young Cuban Bishop, eonsecrated in 1960, said: "1 am here in the name of the Church to see to the spir­ itual health of my people during this time of trial,"

Awakens Others Bishop Boza, who now resides In Venezuela, was exiled from € u ba nearly three years ago. "All Cubans have the hope of return. We think it is impossible that communism will last there. But we do not know the hour that God has designated for this return," he said. Bishop Boz,a said Castro-con­ trolled Radio Havana publicly exhorts Latin Americans to re­ volt against their governments. "At the same time," he added, IlIthe Cuban revolution has awakened the people of Latin America to the danger of cow­ munism." Thwarts Church The Church in Cuba, he said, is in a static situation. He ex­ plained: "The Church is limited to the inside of the temple and is unable to carry out its apos­ tolic and educative missions." At the reception attended by the refugees, the bishop urged them to live and practice their Faith and to use their periods of trial to become better Catholics. He recommended that they study Catholic social doctrine and form a sound social con­ ilCience.

Nelligan, its director from the start, was chairman of a con­ ference on ecumenism held in Baltimore last June. Father Titus Cranny, S.A., di­ rector of the Unity Apostolate of the Graymoor Friars, said the award would be presented in Baltimore next month. The award is given in memory of Father Paul James Francis, S.A., founder of the religio~ commu­ nity, who was a pioneer in the unity movement and began the Chair of Unity Octave observ­ ance in 1908.

SACRAMENTO (NC) - The Catholic bishops of California in a joint statement issued here have called upon their people "to work together' toward the goal of healing the ancient wounds of discrimination." "Through friendly cooperation we must work with energy and perseverance to provide for all, equal opportunity for employ­ ment, decent and proper hous­ ing, and full participation in ed­ ucational facilities, preserving always the freedom of con­ science in' the free exercise of SUffrage," the statement said. Christian Love The bishops said "that social justice and racial harmony can not co-exist with the hatred and discrimination of the racist, nor with the misguided activities of agitators which lead to violence and subversion of athe law." "Only in the atmosphere, of Christian love, through prudent and energetic cooperation can we, with the help of God, make positive progress· toward the solution of the complex prob­ lems of racial justice," the state­ ment asserted.

Father Thomas J. Carroll of Boston charged that there exists a "sighted backlash" of preju­ dice against the blind, compar­ able to the so-called "white backlash" of prejudice against Negroes. "If you can see this analogy­ !If in any degree you can feel an identification with other groups who suffer from prejudice-then you are in a position to give leadership in times which are in fact troubled and dangerous," he told delegates to the 19th annual convention of the Blinded Vete­ IIImS Association. Opportunities Open Father Carroll, director of the Boston Catholic Guild for the Blind, noted that both Negroes .-ld blind persons have taken _ides forward in recent years. "I have seen job opportunities open up for the blind persons whioh were never open beme," be said. "In that time I have seen a new decent base of se­ curity. I have 'seen blind per­ sons allowed on public transpor­ tation. I have seen them lmowcd in restaurants and' hotels a;l­ though they had guide dogs. In­ ereasingly I have seen bUnd persons making use of their vot­ ing rights." But at the same time, he said, there is a "sighted backlash" I!UIlning counter to this trend. Numbers Growing "Increasingly I hear from the general public and from people Wlho should be knowledgeable Cbe question, "Why do you need 8ft agency for the blind? Doesn't flbe state do everything for them? I understand that the Federal government takes care of them." l'ather Carroll reminded the Minded veterans that "in our so­ eiety you are a small group and therefore you are not danger­

ous.", "'But remember, there are those _ Our society who must find a group to look down on," he ad­ ded. "New statistics suggest tOOt in eur country some 900,000 per­ sons are legally blind. The num­ bers are growing, and as the DUmbers grow your problems will increase. And I saJY to you beware of the sigJhted backlash, lor some people get frightened W1hen others come abreast of them in the struggle upward."

WUERZBURG (NC)-A for­ mer Japanese kamikaze (sui­ cide) pilot, Father Alois Matsuo, 38, celebrated his first Mass in the Franciscan church here in Germany. Baptized in 1949, Father, Mat­ suo entered the Franciscan Or­ der in 1954 and studied in Assisi and Padua, Italy, where he was ordained. Last Tuesday Father Matsuo returned to Japan. In his home town of 60,000 inhabitants, there are no Catholics besides him­ self and a single family.

Favors Conscience Moral Test Teaching Suggests Change From 'Outmoded Legalism' ltANSAS CITY (NC)-British Archbishop Thomas Roberts, S.J., believes it is about time t_he Catholic Church substituted the demands of conscience for the outmoded legalism still being used to determine morality. The outspoken Jesuit prelate, one-time archbishop of Bombay, India, told the 21st congress of the National Federation of Cath­ olic College Students that purely rationalistic and authoritarian appeals for morality are no long­ er effective in the modern world. Divinity of Christ He criticized the moral teach­ ing of St. Thomas Aquinas, which was based on the philos­ ophy of Aristotle. St. Thomas, he noted, held that lying was wrong on the ground that if everyone lied the fabric of soci­ ety would be ruined. But, he added, ''Christ was not a juridicist. He was not a bu­ reaucrat. We face that danger when we have men who are con­ nected with bureaucracy." Archbishop Roberts said that m 0 s t non-Catholic Christians will no longer accept the author­ ity of Aristotle or S1. Thomas. "It is even more difficult when talking to a non-Christian," he continued. "They do not accept the divinity of Christ and conse­ quently Christ has no special authority for them. Individual Test "'Gandhi, for instance, believed

that Christ was the best man he had ever known. But he did not believe in Christ's divinity. In talking to a man like Gandhi, it is ridiculous to appeal to the authority of Christ." Instead of appeals to authority, Archbishop Roberts suggested that the Church base its moral teaching more firmly on the in­ dividual conscience. He described this as the central task of the Vatican council. "It is the key point about which everything shall revolve," he said. "It is based upon the idea that the act of faith is some­ thing free. And this freedom must be free of all external re­ straint. His Conseienee "Certainly we know that no

Urges Foundation For Humanities WASHINGTON (NC) - Rep. William S. Moorhead of Penn­ sylvania has asked Congress to est·ablish a National Humanities Foundation "to develop and pro­ mote a broadly conceived policy of support for tlhe humanities and the arts." In introducing the legislation the congressman said the foun­ dation would promote studies in languages, literature, history, philosophy, religious history, art, music and the performing a·rts.

"concept of shared-time offers an opportunity for both the State and the Church to perform relligious instruction f\lnctions withQut encroaching on each other." Need Formula -A free pluralistic society needs both public schools and religious instruction, and the long hard lessons we are now learning is that the public school 'cannot do the job of the churches," Dr Stearns said. "We must find a formula in which the church will be free to establish that part 9f a total school system which is designed for its own job, reLigious instruc­ tion," he added. 'l1he plan must· be flexrble so that, within his own discretion,

one can be saved but through Christ. But only a few, through these millions of years, could know Him. God left the human race for thousands of years with only this-his conscience. Peo­ ple should know that we respect freedom of conscience and that we are willing to die for it. Our respect must be the same that God has for the human con­ science," he said.

Sees All-Vernacular Mass in 10 Years -O~A (NC) Father Adrian Nocent, O.S.B., Belgian theologian and liturgy expert, estimated it will be 10 years be­ fore Mass will be offered entire­ ly in the vernacular. The Benedictine from the A!bbey of Maredsous, Belgium, who has been giving special courses in liturgy to clergy and laity in Ottawa, said the evolu­ tion would have to come about slowly and the faithful would have to be prepared for it. He pointed up the difficulty of a suitable translation of the Canon of the Mass.

ISAIAS 2:4·"

At the very beginning of this Council it was empha­ sized that difference in language has obscured the fact that Catholics and Protestants hold many beliefs in com­ mon. Theologians were asked to look behind the language to the doctrine and to see to what degree Catholic and Protestant beliefs paraIlel each other. In Protestant theological circles recently, there has been a renewed interest in the place of Mary in the plan of God for man's salvation. From the talks and writings of manY COUlicil Fathers, Protestants have understood that the Catholic Church herself decries exaggerations about Mary and wishes to give her only what God Himself gave her-the unique position of Mother of Jesus Christ. Prot­ estant fears that Mary was somehow taking the place of Christ were dispelled. And in this new atmosphere, Prot­ estants have been able to ask themselves why they have taken such little notice of her and what her position actuaIly is. It is a beautiful thing to read what many of these theologians are writing about Mary - about her par­ amount importance in the life of the Church and the life of the Christian. When Catholics hold out their own beliefs in clear perspective and without distortions and exaggerations, their own faith is purified and they inspire their Protestant brothers to look at the 'Church and to see in it Jesus Christ and His teachings.

LA CROSSE (NC) - After a vacation with his parents' in Richland Center, Father Emmett Faber left here for a second three-year assignment at ,the Holy Cross mission in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, which is main­ tained by the La Crosse diocese. Twenty years ago the Catholi~ religion was virtually finished in Santa Cruz," said Father Faber before his departure. "To­ day there is a great change. Churches are full; interest in re­ ligion is growing. This is due largely to the influx of American missionaries; including diocesan priests." Red Menace Father Faber said communism "remains a serious menace" in Bolivia, although it has been curtailed under the administra­ tion of President Victor Paz Es­ tensoro. The communists are ac­ tive particularly in education and in labor unions. He said the Alliance for Prog­ ress, still in a formative stage, has begun to provide schools, which is one of Bolivia's basic needs. He also said that Castro­ ism holds a "magic sway" over an "appreciable group of Bolvi­ ians." Two other La Crosse diocesan priests, Fathers Joseph Walijew­ ski and Edward Penchi; two lay missioners, Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Lund of Stevens Point, Wis.; and five Dominican nuns from Sinsi­ nawa, Wis., are on the n:U.,-sioD staff.

Bike Guidelines Bicycles, those joyS of child­ hood, the inexpensive, healthful way to travel, need certain guidelines if they are to be used with safety. Parents must be sure that their children are able to handle their bikes with skill and that they know and observe bicycle regulations before allow­ ing them to ride bikes to school. Studies by the NSF show it is better for a ,bicycle to keep to the right side of the road, rather than on the left facing facing traffic. Soft or rough shoulders, curbs and guard rail~ make it impossible for a cyclist facing traffic to yield the right of way to every approaching vehicle. The cyclist should use hand and arm signalS' to warn others of any intention to stop or turn. He should never attempt to squeeze in between two lanes of traffic, whether the cars are in motion or not. Riding more than two at>J;east should never be done. Bicycles should be walked across busy streets, in cross­ walks or at intersections. If it is used at night, the bi­ cycle should be equipped with the proper headlight and rear reflector.

Justice and CharifyOblige All .To Aid in Eliminating Poverty

C,atholic Women

Council Auditors

. ,

By John J. Kane, Ph.D. "Today we hear a great deal about eliminating poverty. n seems to me that most poverty is due to downright lazi­ ness, indifference, or unwillingness to take on jobs that are menial. Didn't our Lord say that we will always have the poor with us? I cannot help but believe that some of the per cent of the patients can af­ private institutions. present talk about poverty ford You will find them in state and the elimination of it are and federal institutions, and ob­

praetically ridiculous." Of course, our Lord did 1Jlly that we shall always have the poor with us. Neither do I thir.k that any plan will. com­ pletely elimi­ nate all poverty. But there is no reeord, so far as I know, of cur Lord saying .' t:bat we should ItOt attempt to eliminate poverty, or to aUe­ Yiate the plight of the poor. Again and again in His own words and deeds, Christ tried to do exactly this, and the Church since her foundation, has fol­ lowed in His footsteps. Let's try to look at this:matter • bit realistically, divorcing it entirely from political consid­ erations. Furthermore, let's be­ gin on the lowest possible level, our own self interest. Poverty is costly to society. You and I, assuming that we have adequate incomes, are spending part of our money to Ilelp support those in dire cir­ cumstances. Of course, there is absolutely IW) objection to this. On the contrary it is a moral obligatiml laid down by Christ Himself. Bv.t I do want to point out that 1hose who oppose efforts to re­ 6uee poverty~ are hurting their own pock~ which is just ~ut the weakest argument m: which I know,

Prefer ~ Help In the wake of poverty we ltave physical and mental dis­ ease, delinquency, crime, a IUgh infant mortality rate, end above aU. a loss of produc­ .ve capacity. Now if you will lust look at these factors for • tnoment, you can see what. trreat social problem povert)- u. Today, illness costs the aver­ age American family about six ~ cent of its income, an in­ cease of about two per m!nt points over the last 10 years. Basically, there is no complaint about this because the revolu­ tIS.-on in medical treatment is well 'Worth the medical cost. The problem is many families simply eannot pay for it. Therefore, we have a choice. We pay for it through 18Ka­ • on, through private charity.. 01' · 'We allow them to suffer and die. : 7ortunately, in our kind of a lIOciety we prefer to help them. And so in every state the phys­ Ically ill do get some kind of. aedical treatment, :lJODle fill hospitaJiMtion by means 111. , tmblic &DistaDce, the lter:r-MiUr 8Ul, «' otherwise.


MeDtal Dlness

1t is a liWe depressing to talk · ef mental illness and U1e facts Ilbout it are just overwhelmill.g. It is estimated that, at .8O!De ~me, one out Df every 10 persona · will spend lC'lIIle time in a meD­ tal institution u a patient. The · 80st of treating mental illneu U _ prohibitive that less than two

viously these institutions are supported by tax payments. In addition to this there are any number of persons who are mentally or emotionally ill who receive absolutely no care what­ soever. A recent study in a cen­ tral section of Manhattan showed that four out {)f every five per­ sons required some kind of psy_ chiatric assistance, but many were not getting it. In most cases these people are unable to work, or if they do obtain a job, they do not hold it very long. Th€ r efore, they join the ranks of the unemploy­ ed, perhaps - collect unemploy­ ment compensation for a time, and then end up on relief. Once again the taxpayer who is work­ ing pays for this. Cost of Crime I would not even attempt to estimate the total oest of crime in the United States, but those experts who do so place it in the billions. Certainly, once again, the taxpayer is paying through the nose to support peo­ ple in penal institutions, to sup­ port their wives and children who have nO other income, not to mention the productive loss, and the actual loss of life and property. This is not to say that poverty is the cause of crime and delin­ quency at all. Rather, it iato lJay that there is a high asso­ ciation between both. There are many other things that could be said about the problem of p.overty. You could use various kinds of estimates, but empioying the most eonserv­ ative ones, it is true that about one-fifth of the American pe0­ ple are living in poverty. Moral Issue 1 ~gan by staying that I would attempt to discuss this 011 the lowest level possible, that of the financial ~om to all of us. But let me conclude by placing it where it really belongs. Poverty is a moral issue. We all have a deep obligation in jmtiee and charity to assist our brother. In doing so we not onl,. help ourselves, :f:inanciaJ1.y speak. ing, in the long run. but what is far more important, we gain gr~e through the practice of cl'1ar:ity. This subject is 90 eom­ pleK that sometime in the future I hope I -can devote another column to it. In the meantime, try' to think of poverty, not in terms of poli­ tics, but in terms {}f Christ who said, "So long as you bve done it to the !least of these, My bl'eth­ l'ell'I, 7 - ha:yedone it to Me."

Rather Than Specialists,' Franciscan Says QUINCY (NC)- Delegates to the Quincy College MedicoMoral Institute her~in illiriois have been told that hospitals need more nurses who are g~neralists, rather than specialists. Father Pacific Hug, O.F.M., institute chairman, said, "there is a danger in our highly tech­ nical specialization of welfare services that they tend to be­ come professionalized. In hos­ pital work we need more nurses who are generalists rather than specialists." Somebody Cares Father Hug. chairman of the departments of philosophy and psychology at Quincy College, told the 165 delegates from 30 states. "I know it bas long been the fashion to teach nurses and medical personnel that they must not get personally involved in the welfare and .concern of the patient," he declared.

CASTEL GANDOLFo' (NC)­ Pope Paul VI revealed here that representative Catholic women, both Religious and lay, will be present at the ecumenical council for t~ first time in the course of the third session. He said a small number of women will assist at some general council sessions in the capacity of auditors. . The Pope made his announce­ ment to a group of Sisters for whom he celebrated a special Mass at his Summer villa here on the feast of the birthday of Mary. ''We believe the day has come," he told them, "to give

. higher honor and more effi­

ciency to the religious life ot

women, and that this can be achieved by perfecting the ties uniting it to that of the whole Church." He said this first-ever repre­ sentation of women in the COUD­ cil will be "small--obviously­ but significant and almost sym­ bolic." The women auditors are to be drawn from among the Sisterhoods and from Catholie women's organizations.

Hierarchy ISSUE'S Text for Mass

Prelate Scores Court's Stand On Obscenity

LONDON (NC)-The offidal English text to be used at all low Masses in England and Wales from the first Sunday in Advent (Nov. 29) has beea issued by the hierarchy here. It gives the English language versions for both priests and people of all the ordinary, OJ' non-changing, parts to be said in the vernacular. The amount of English ill­ eludes no~ only the ConfiteoP1 Gloria and Credo, but also other acclamations and res po n s. e II throughout the Mass, such all the Orate Fratr~ and Suscipiat, Some Variations A difference from the Amett-' ican vernacular noted is that the English text for England and Wales retaines the second per­ son singular-"Thou" and "Thee" and "Thy"-in reference to God. But the Dominus Vobiscum become "The Lord be with you" and the reply "And with you." Here the American reply il! "And with your spirit." There are other slight variations in translation, notably in the Gloria and the Creed.

STEUBENVILLE (NC­ Bishop John King Mussio of Steubenville has accuse<\. the U.S. Supreme Court of "con­ fusion, contradiction and a cer. tain irresponsibility" in its latests actions on obscenity and eensorship. The Ohio prelate said in a dltatement that the justices of the high court are "utterly eon­ fused about the. nature and meaning of the word pornog­ raphy" and are making the na­ tion suffer for their confusion. "While they experiment in doubt and indecision," he said, "they turn loose upon this coun­ try a flood of filth and scum which the majority of our citi­ zens is convinced will ruin the moral fibre of our nation." The Supreme Court'l;! latest l'Ulings on obscenity and cen­ IIOrship came when it reversed an Ohio ban on the movie "The Lovers" and a Kansas ban on a number of paperback books. The same day the court by a mmmary action reversed Flor. ida court rulings against the novel "Tropic of Cancer." The justices wrote a large number of conflicting opinions in the Ohio and Kansas cases in which they showed themselves sharply divided on the basic is­ sues of what constitutes obscen­ ity and what can be done about it. B ish 0 p Mussio called it a "tragedy" that "the justices act like sure men when they are not." He particularly challenged the argument advanced by several justices that the test of "commu. nity standards" for determining whether material is obscene re­ fers to national rather than local norms.

Brothers to Teach Nomad Tribesmen CAPE TOWN (NC) - Two young members of the Little Brothers of Jesus arrived here in South Africa on their way to Angola where they will work among the K'ung bushmen. Brother Francois, a French­ man, and Brother Charles, a Bel. gian, will continue the work of Father Jean-Marie, who died last year after eight years among the bushmen. He founded a cen­ ter to help these nomads, called Chamavere. The K'ung. bushmen are a dying race, near to starvation most of the year. They have no permanent homes and often sleep in the open. They get meat only a few days of :the year, fruit for about 65 days a year and for the resi: m 0 s t 1 y go hungry. The Little Brothers of Jesus are trying to teach them to settle in homes and to engage in agriculture.

Blast Supreme Court Obscenity Decisions NEW YORK (NC)-A group of CathoHc, Protestant. and Jew­ ish leaders in a joint statement have sharply attacked the U.S.. Supreme Court for its latest actions in the area of obscenity an censorship. They charged that the: court has reached "shocking c6nclus­ ions" on these issues whi~h ex­ hibit "contempt for the public and utter indifference to, Or dis­ regard of, the morality that guided the framers of: our Con­ lItitution." . The religious leaders' have called for stepped-up eriforce­ ment of anti-obscenity laws and for public denunciations of the Supreme Court'» stand.

HEROES HAVE THEIR DAY: Pope Paul gave a special audience to 16 children from various countries who were being' taken on a tour of Europe in recognition of acts of heroism each had performed. H~~re the Holy Father talks with Rita Sanford a 14-year-old polio afflicted English girl, who walked. seven miles supporting herself in a 'wheelchair in order to qualify for membership in the Girl Guides, English equivalent of the Girl Scouts. Her act has been called an "apostolate of optimism" among all polio victims. NC Photo.

Parochial Plant Renovation Underway Extensive Work Cit St. Stanislaus Church St. Stanislaus Parish, Fall River, is undergoing a building renovation that is effecting every part of the parochial plant­ church, school, rectory, and con­ vent. Revl Robert S. Kaszynski, ad­ ministrator, has announced that kneeling pads, public address system and cooling system will contribute to the personal com­ fort of the congregation. The beauty of the ohurch will be enhanced by a new reredos, a Shrine to St. Anth.ony, replace­ ment of vestments and sacred vessels and new stained glass windows in aluminum window frames. The exterior renovations will consist of repairs to the roof and new steps at the side en­ trance. A 42-foot steeple which will be illuminated nightly is being erected and will be dedicated on Saturday, Oct. 17. Father Seigny, O.M.I., who is on sabbatical leave, is doing all the manual labor in the renova­ tion of the priests' sacristy. Pre-primary quarters are be­ ing added to the second floor of the school. The convent on Broadway has been partially remodeled and painted. A new altar has been erected in the chapel and new

guests' dining room facilities have been completed. The exterior of the rectory and the building of a garage have changed the physical ap­ pf!arance of the property. The interior has been renovated by tile families of the parish who

volunteered their services dur­ ing the Winter and Spring months. Future plans call for the land,scaping' of the church grounds, building of a parish center and renovation of the exterior of the school.

BOISE (NC)-Bishop Sylves­ ter Treinen of Boise announced an intensive diocesan "crusade for souls" here. . In a statement in the Idaho Register, newspaper of the dio. cese, he said that "in just a few weeks, every parish in the dio­ cese of Boise will begin conduct­ ing the first of two annual Inquiry Classes." In urging priests and people to an intensive effort for more conversions, the bishop added~ "Nor is this inconsistent with true ecumenism." Prayers, Penance "Be persistent without being offensive or obnoxious," said Bishop Treinen. "Make your prayers for this intention devout and long * * * Make your pen­ .ances severe--give up smoking or drinking. Stop quarreling." In his closing remarks, the bishop announced the goal of the crusade for souls: "One convert to each Catholic home each year."

Harlem teenagers has been car­ rying on a program of good citi­ zenship and civic improvement. They are working on a youth­ oriented program involving vo­ ter registration, jQb opportunity surveys, and housing investiga­ tions. Right Things

The program idea, originating with a group of Protestant min­ insters known as. the Citywide Coordinating Committee, has since been adopted in several Catholic parishes. "I suppose, "Father Edward T. Dugan said, "these same kids could have been just like those involved in violence and rioting. It merely is a matter of getting them interested in the right things, instead of those that lead astray." 'Lack of Education" The program was initially oon­ ceived as a way of finding jobs for school dropouts but has ex­ panded to cover other areas of civic activity. It is succeeding most satisfactorily. "More than 25 per cent of the young adult population of Har­ lem is unemployed,'~ Fr. Dugan said, "and that is more than twice the percentage of the white youths. Things have become worse rather than better over. the past 10 years or so." "Lack of education has stifled the incentive of Negro youths," he noted, "and this in turn has led to bitterness, apathy and even violence."

Los Angeles Readies For Liturgy Change LOS ANGELES (NC)-Pas­ tors here have been urged 10 train parochial school children in vernacular participation at Mass so they will be an example to adults when the change goes into effect. . Auxiliary Bishop John J. Ward, chairman of the Archdio- cese's Liturgy Commission, said' laity participation through se. lected responses in English is tentatively scheduled to start Nov. 29, the First Sunday of Advent. . "It is our intention to proceed gradually in liturgical reform," he said, "introducing in successive general dispositions those modifications which seem to be possible, necessary or useful, without, however, altering the text of the liturgical books cur:rently in use until their complete revision is effected."

The Mass was also a visible demonstration of the "collegi­ ality" whieh, he said in his ad· dress opening the session, is the principal issue before the Coun­ cil.

Signs School Street . Closing Legislation TRENTON (NC)-Gov. Rich­ ard J. Hughes of New Jersey has signed into law legislation per­ mitting municipalities to forbid traffic on streets adjacent to private and public schools at hours when children would be going to and coming from school. This has been the traditional practice in many localities but last. year the courts ruled it il­ .legal when residents near St. Mary's School, Rutherford, com­ plained about the halting of traffic there. Designation of such streets as play streets is now possible at the time when children are as­ sembling for school in the morn­ ing, during the noon recess and at the close of school. Approval of the designation must be given by the state motor vehicle di­ rector before it becomes effec­ tive under the new law.

Asserts Klan Spirit Alive, Dangerous MINONK (NC)-Although the Ku Klux Klan is today small and fragmented, its spirit is still alive and dangerous, Michael J. Howlett, state auditor of public accounts, told the Holy Name Society of St. Patrick's church here in Illinois. "The Ku Klux idea-the false identification of bigotry as a form of patriotism-is a threat, and a serious one," Howlett said. "One need not be a member of the Klan to encourage the growth and power of the Klall mentality." .

to be forgotten. Here was a ful­ filment of the dream of the litur­ gical pioneers: the worship they long had visualized as social prayer, as a divine celebration which is a family observance with all its baptized members sharing in oommon that sacra­ mental unity in Christ that the mystery of the Holy Eucharist signifies. Now the Church, represented by its worldwide hierarchy, has made a reality of this dream which envisioned a worship more' expressive of the inner­ most meaning of the eucharistic banquet, a worship illustrative of the loving communion of God with man and of man with God as a sacrifice which is in a sense reciprocal, as a sharing in divin­ ity on the part of the creature

in a unity of mutual charity with the Creator. The Pope as Vicar of Christ, joining in a strong voice with 24 bishops who acted as vicars of all the faithfUl in a sacred function in which the celebrants were facing not only the con­ gregation of the shepherds of the universal Ohurch but also the representatives of those churches and communities not in union with the Holy See and an international multitude of faithful. responding in joyoUS unison to the Mass prayers re­ cited by the Father of All-this indeed, was ecumenism in prac~ tice. It was apparent that many of those present felt this was the beginning of a new era of Chris­ tianity.

ST. LOUIS (NC) - Father Frederick R. McManus, Catholie University of America canon law professor and an adviser te the new Vatican liturgy com­ mission, will again serve ae president of the National Litur­ gical Conference.

Communism is winning the world be­ cause it rings doorbells, buttonholes passers­ by, goel;' into the highways and byways. The world is its parish. Fire has two qualities: light and heat. So does the Gospel. Its light . is truth and faith. Its heat is love and zeel. The two should go together, but they are divorced. We have the light but no heat; the Communists have the heat but no light. We have the truth, but we keep it inside walls and formalize it in a pulpit. They have the zeal and become missionaries. As Marx said: "Philosophers dream about the world; we must change it.. Humanity cannot live without firebrands. The moment the Church becomes so formalized that she has little or no tnterest in people and the world except as members of a parish or a diocese, Communism rflls the vacuum.

Energetic FaR River Quartet 'Paints Ch"!lrch, • Sings Masses, Teaches "tn New Mexico What did yon do :tihis Summer? Madeline Morin, Patricia Dumais Denise Gelinas and Donna Thibault, June graduates of Jesus-Mary Academy in Fall Riv~r, painted a church, washed and waxed its interior, cleaned it nightly, s'ang 10 high Masses a week, plus a few weddings, washed dishes for a community of Sisters, AND taught catechism to 23 young­ sters every morning and an­ other 50 every afternoon. Are they exhausted? We loved it, they. say. The am­ bitious foursome did all this in Ruidoso, New Mexico, where the lone parish priest hadn't sung a high Mass for three years be­ cause he had no choir. He knew of the girls' arrival only three days in advance but quickly r-ounded up his young parishion­ ers and told them there'd be Summer school for them. Of 73 children who attended, a morn­ ing group at St. Eleanor's parish in Ruidoso and an afternoon group in its mission of San Pa­ tricio, 33 were prepared for First Communion by the foua:- Fall River girls. The others were only slightly older than First Communion age. "Imagine, they didn't know any games," marvel Pat Dumais. "We taught them Ring around the Rosy and Little Sally Sau­ cer." Started in March The New Mexico project be­ gan in March when Reverend Mother General del Rosario of the Jesus-Mary community vis­ ited Jesus-Mary Academy in F'all River. She spoke to senior class members, explaining tM need of Summer workers in Jesus-Mary missions in the southwest part of the United States. Some 21 students originally volunteered to go south, but only four could be taken from Fall River, because other Jesus­ Mary schools were also send'ing girls to the area. Originally the Diocesan quar­ tet expected to work in EI Paso, Texas, but when they arrived at Jesus - Mary headquarters there, they were sent to the Sis­ ters' Summer house at Ruidoso where they plunged into their whirl of activity. "The people are 80 friendly,· they reported. "Not like us re­ served New Englanders!" They said that although the inhabi­ tants of Ruidoso are very poor, for the most part living in two room adobe huts, they were hos­ ·pitable in the extreme.

Bishop Wright said that much of. the article in the magazine, featuring Boston's Richard Car.,. 'dinal Cushing on its cover, w. accurate. But the "posed picture el Catholic Maltbusians" was Ii "grotesque misrepresentation of the thrilling realities that really challenge our generation and Holy Church," he said.

Since 1895 Good Done Without Ostentation At Fall River's Dominican Academy "W~'re from DA," proudly say Lucille Boilard and Suzanne Ratte. The affectionate nickname for Fall River's Dominican Academy indicates the special feeling its students have for it, and Lucill~ and Suzanne are no exception. They're exceptional though in the offices to· which fellow classmates have elected them. Starting yesterday, Lucille took her place a'S sodality prefect and Suzanne picked up the reins a'S school presi­ dent. Both had previous lead­

ership e~perience, Lucille as junior class secretary and Su­ zanne as junior class president and glee club secretary-treasu­ rer. Green - eyed and brown ­ haired, vivacious Lucille is a member of St. Louis de France parish, Swansea and the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Emile Boilard. School organizations in­ clude glee club and athletic as­ sociation, and favorite school subjects are "French-and ev­ erything. I especially like lan­ guages." Lucille's a participant in DA's unique radio program which weekly airs the Christian view­ point on a spectrum of matters. "We're the only school with such a program," she notes, add­ ing that nearly 300 broadcasts are already chalked up to DA's credit, and that the program continued all Summer. Hopes to Teach Lucille plans to attend college, majoring in languages, and pre­ paring for a teaching career on the high school or college level. Meanwhile, "I love to write," and to keep her pen sharp she'll aid on DA's yearbook staff. Outside school, she has a vari­ ety of interests. They include swimming, singing, reading, sewing and cooking. "I attempt them," she admits, of the last two. But there's no doubt of her enjoyment of the product of cooking! She likes Italian, French and American' foods. "I just like food," she sums up. St. Anne's Suzanne, brunette and hazel­ eyed, is a member of St. Anne's parish in Fall River where she's active in CYO. In school she's a busy bee, holding membership in the athletic association, stu­ dent council, sodality and glee club, in addition to serving as a cheerleader and participating in intramural sports. She has two brothers and a sister. The boys are students at St. Anne's parochial school and Diane, her sister, is at DA. In Suzanne's tradition of leader­ ship, she's sophomore class pres­ ident. They're children of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Ratte. Suzanne names math as her favorite school subject and after college she'd like to teach grade school. After-school hours are often used for babysitting, but . this Summer gave ample time for swimming at the Ratte cot­ tage in Swansea. Both Lucille and Suzanne say

Outstanding History Dominican Academy is staffed by the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, the only community to be founded in the Fall River Diocese. It opened in 1895 with three boarders and four day students and by 1908, 13 years later, had prospered to the extent that it was necessary build an addition to the ori­ ginal building. In 1915 anlYther wing was added.

Today Dominican's enrollment is nearly 300 students. The work of the faculty is aided by St. Catherine's Guild" a women's auxiliary, and an active Alum­ nae Association.

Lauds Civil Rights Record Of Labor's Top Leaders


By Msgr. George G. Higgins Director, NCWC Social Action Department


The writer of this column is quoted in the Catholic press as having said that the American labor movement is "on the spot" in the field of race relations and civil rights. This quote, which was taken from the sermon de­ livered at the annual Labor nitely better than that of many Day Mass of the Archdiocese tank-and-file union members at of Washington, has ruffled the local level. Uncompromising Support the feathers of some of our friends in the labor movement. They think I was being a little too hard on or­ ganized labor, and they are quick to point out that by com­ parison wit h business, edu­ cation, the pro­ fessions and other segments of American life, the labor move­ ment has a rea­ sonably goo d record in the field of race re­ lations. This is true, of course, as I went to the trouble of point­ ing out in the text of my Labor Day sermon, which in context, reads in part as follows: Judge Performance "On Labor Day, 1964, the labor movement, like every other or­ ganization in American society is on the spot. For the moment, it must expect to be judged al­ most exclusively on its perform­ ance in the field of civil rights and must expect to be told, even by its friends, that its record in this particular field has· been far from perfect. "In fairness, of course, it should be pointed out that the American labor movement has done much in the past and is doing even more at the present time to promote the cause of in­ terracial justice, not only within its own ranks, but in the com­ munity at large * * * "However, many labor leaders have yet to grasp the depth and the passion of the present racial erisis. As a result, there is, un­ fortunately, a growing rift be­ tween organized labor and the Negro community * * .. Leadership's Record "It should not be necessary to add '" * .;. that the record of American industry and Amer­ ican management is no better than that of organized labor in the field of race relations and civil rights and, on balance, may not be quite as good. But surely this is no time for either side to be comparing its record phara­ saically with that of the other. They are both in the same boat." I am fully prepared to stand by this capsule-like summary of labor's past and present per­ formance in the field of race re­

lations and civil rights, but, to

round out the picture and to 'put it in slightly better context, I should like to add at this time that the record of labor's top leadership - beginning wit h George Meany, president of the AFL-CIO - is much better than that of many second and third

echelon union officers and infi-

Diamond Jubilarian Dies in Canada Sister Marie of the Guardian Angel, S.S.C., formerly superior at St. Anthony and Sacred Heart Convents, New Bedford, and St. Joseph's Convent Attleboro, died after a long illness in St. Lau­ rent, Canada. The former Regina Dansereau of New Bedford, she celebrated the diamond jubilee in the Holy Cross Sisters in 1963, on which occasion she visited the Diocese for the last time. Among her survivors is Joseph Dansereau of New Bedford.

President Meany and the ma­ jority of the other top officers of the Federation can. be proud of their uncompromising support of equal employment opportu­ nity. Indeed the record will show that if it hadn't been for them, the Congress probably would not have included a section on equal employment opportunity in the Civil rights Act of 1964. Moreover, Mr. Meany and his colleagues on the executive council have made it abundantly clear that they intend to do everything within their power to bring about voluntary com. pliance with this section of·the law and that they will whole­ heartedly support the govern­ ment in its efforts to enforce it by court action if voluntary compliance is not forthcoming. Unfortunately, however, a siz­ able number of local union offi­ cers and rank-and-file union members are less enthusiasti­ cally in favor of equal employ­ ment opportunity than Mr. Meany and the other members. of the AFL-CIO Executive Council. These are the men who are putting the labor movement on the spot in the field of race re­ lations and civil rights. They will have much to an­ swer for if, by dragging their feet on this crucial issue, they mislead the Negro community into thinking that the labor movement as such is out of Sym­ pathy with the Negro's legiti­ mate and belated demand for complete and unqualified equal­ ity of opportunity in the field of employment.

Illinois Bishop Allows Mass In Homes

THE ANCHOR Thurs., Sept. 17, 1964

CongrTe~~ p~~~S


ROCKFORD (NC)-Bish­ op Loras T. Lane of this TIl­ inois Diocese has adoptd a new liturgical program which features the celebration of Mass in homes of the faithful under specific conditions. In a letter to the clergy, Bish­ op Lane said in these days when the Church is endeavoring to bring about an interior renewal in the life of her members, par­ ticularly through the liturgy, special attention must be cen­ tered on the heart of liturgical worship, the Mass. The "Neighborhood Mass" plan envisions that the home where the Mass is offered will be a center to which all the neighbors will be invited for the event. It will not supplant church services on Sundays 01' holy days but rather, as a spe­ cial practice of a weekday, cre­ ate a better understanding of the sacred mysteries, the bishop said. Appeal The special appeal of the home Mass is the proximity of the people to the altar, enabling them to observe and study the sacred actions. In such small groups they are better disposed to participate actively in the people's responses and to appre­ ciate their role as co-offerers of the Sacrifice, the prelate said. Conditions set by Bishop Lane are: permission of the bishop is required; the Mass should be in the evening between 4 and 8 P.M.; the people are to be in­ structed in participation and hymn singing; and a homily is to be given. The privilege may be used once each month for each parish unless special circum­ stances warranted a more fre­ quent use. The ceremony is to be in a different neighborhood each month and both Catholic and Protestant neighbors are to be invited.

Say Brazil Masses Now in Portuguese RIO DE JANEIRO (NC) ­ Portuguese has become the offi­ cial language of the Mass throughout Brazil. Father Hildebrando Martins, O.S.B., who headed the Rio de Janeiro Archdiocesan Commis­ sion on the Liturgy, said that "the pUblic accepted with enthu­ siasm the innovations introduced into the Mass." He added: "The fact that the Masses will now be celebrated in Portuguese makes possible a more -active participation on the part of the faithful." Linguists have developed four versions of the Mass which are in use in various parts of the country. In general, about 80 per cent of the Mass is now being said in Portuguese. Its frequency varies throughout the country. Most dioceses make the vernacular obligatory on Sun­ days and holy days.

Religious Still Active In East Germany BERLIN (NC)-A number of religious orders of men and women are still active in com­ munist ruled East Germany, ac­ cording to a Red official. Arthur Kother, who is in charge of Church-state affairs in Erfurt, stated in the commu­ nist newspaper, Das Volk, that Dominican Fathers are working in Leipzig, along with Redemp­ torists in Heiligenstadt, Fran­ ciscans in Goerlitz-Weinuebel, Dinglestadt and Huelfensberg, and Jesuits in Dresden, Weimar and Erfurt. Among the Sisters he men­ tioned Urselines in Erfurt and Carmelites in East Berlin.

Spanish to Increase Latin American Help MADRID (NC) - Archbishop Casimiro Morcillo of Madrid has urged Spanish Catholics to ob­ serve a day of prayer and fast­ ing for apostolic work in Latin America, declaring "we have not even done a small part of what Latin America needs and expects from us." President of the Organization for Priestly Cooperation with Latin America, Archbishop Mor­ cillo cited the need for coopera­ tion among groups aiding the Church in Latin America. He said his group wanted to extend its work to Asia and Africa but had been urged by the Holy See to concentrate on Latin America and the Philippines.

Observers fear the communists might regain control of Kerala, India's most Catholic state, which th-ey lost in 1959. The re­ union of two warring communist groups and their victories in re­ cent by-elections have reinforced the fear.

BOMBAY (NC )-Chicago-born Msgr. Paul Marcinkus, a mem­ ber of the Papal Secretariat of State, said during a visit here that he is impressed with the prep<>ration for the 38th Interna_ tional Eucharistic Congress which will open in Bombay Sat­ urday, Nov. 28. Msgr. Marcinkus came t8 Bombay with Father Joseph Missaglia, general consultor of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers, for a visit which touched off new speculation that Pope Paul VI would come to India for the congress. The rumors were de­ nied by the Vatican press office. "We have come to manifest the interest of the pontiff in the congress," Msgr. Marcinkus told newsmen. "What we have seen so far is very encouraging. Our presence here is indicative of the personal interest of His Holiness the Pope in the con. gress." Msgr. Marcinkus said he was particularly impressed by the assistance given to the congress by non-Christian citizens, by the Indian government and by the government of Maharashtra state. "

Readi."g Bible Intelligently 'Gives Pleasant Surprise By Rev. Joseph T. McGloin, S.J. Some teacher or columnist or other promoter is always trying to get you teen-agers, whether you're 17 or 70, to "read the Scriptures." It's a commendable plug, too, and one I'd like to add my own two cents worth of encourage­ ment to--not just to read only point is that God created the Bible, but to read it in­ the whole works, no matter how telligently, as you would any He went about it. goOd book. Read its mean­ Or take the story of original


ing, not just its words, not just the lines but between the lines, so that you see wha t is there specifically and· what is there implicitly as well. Try reading the Scriptures, not as a duty, but as something you want to do, and you're ir for a pleasant surprise - the sort of surprise that comes to a rational human being with real discovery. It is utterly inconceivable that anyone could read the Scriptures and not enjoy the reading if he goes about it right. No kidding. 'Salvation-History' The very first thing you have to do if you're to appreciate or enjoy the Scriptures is to under­ stand just what they are. This library we call "The Bible" is not secular history nor a scien­ tific treatise. If God had wanted a scientific treatise He would have inspired a scientist as His writing instrument insteal;l of those He did make use of. On the other hand, the Bible is not just a collection of pious fables, either. No, it's what is called "salvation-history," the story of God's intervention in human history, a fascinating story at that and a vital one for us. Notice how the story 'is told in a very human way, with very human touches, because God is talking through human beings and with human beings, not with geniuses or saints or angels. Human Characteristics God is, of course, the Author ef Scripture, but you'll notice how the writer He inspires eomes through with his own hu­ inan characteristics, writing SO that the people of his day will understand his meaning. You ean't fail to notice that the hu­ man writer will often tell the "what"of, this story of God's in­ tervention in human history accurately, giving us the "how" of the story, however, in his own human way. You read, for Instance, that God made the universe in six days, and then rested. Here is an obvious example of the writer's telling us the "what" and explaining the "how" in language understandable to his readers. The "What," or the fact is that God created the universe. The "how," or the method of doing it is relatively unimpor­ tant, the important fact being that even if the universe was created according to the then eommon conception, God is still its Creator. 'Forbidden Fruit' A modern inspired writer would undoubtedly tell us that God is the Creator of the world, even if He did the job by cre­ ating matter with the potency for evolving into our presen~ universe inherent in it. As a matter of fact, any but a care­ less reading of the Scriptural account of creation will convince you that the furthest thing from the mind of the inspired writer was a contradiction of any theory of the "how" of cre­ ation, such as evolution. His

sin. Certainly the sacred writer didn't believe in talking ser­ pents. But his pagan contempo­ raries did, and the serpent, then as now, was a symbol of evil. "Forbidden fruit" had the same meaning then as now. It isn't the "how" of original sin that counts most with the sacred writer, but the fact, its nature, and its consequences, There is, then, a divine Author of Scripture using a human in­ strument to give us the message. And so we get God's message, with the personality and back­ ground of the human writer coming through, too. After all, if God had wanted it otherwise, He wouldn't have bothered with a human writer at all. He could have just dropped the message from a cloud. Original Sin Read again the story of origi­ nal sin, and notice how well the inspired human writer brings out the nature of sin in his illus­ tration of its "how." Adam and Eve had been enjoying perfect happiness, perfect control of themselves and the wonderful friendship of God (which we sometimes call by a stuffier term, "sanctifying grace"). Then they goofed and threw away these gifts. Notice, as you read, how Eve, woman-like, dallies with the temptation, much as the lady at a mink stole sale rationalizes her way into buying: "Now the woman saw that the tree was good for food, pleasing to the eyes, and desirable for the knowledge it would give * * *" (Genesis 3/6) Once the foolish sin is com­ mitted, Adam and Eve are ashamed and hide. God comes looking for them. "When they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, the man and his wife hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden * * *" (Genesis 3/8) He calls out to them, and they emerge, scared and ashamed. Adam's 'Excuse' The truth comes out but Adam has an "excuse": The woman you placed at my side gave me fruit from the tree and I ate." It is as though Adam is telling God it's all His fault­ "the woman you placed at .my side"! Eve in her turn, blames the whole thing on the serpent. Notice that we ·have here a very human illustration of the theology and psy.chology of sin -bringing out its nature, the tendency to blame someone else, to 'excuse" ourselves, or even blaming God for making Us the way we are. But no mat­ ter what the actual details of that first sin, the sacred writer is telling us that man was not created evil by God, but brought evil into the world by his own pride and disobedience. Notice some of the other hu­ man touches here. God takes pity on man's helplessness after his sin, and "The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them." then, looking at this helpless pair, He can't resist a most ironical remark: "Indeed! the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil! And now perhaps he will put forth his hanci and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever!" (Genesis 3/21f.)

I n 1962 the splrl . ·te d Spartans were Bristol County League champs, in 1963 they were runnersup to Durfee.

The dean of area coaches, Jim Burns, embarking on his thirty­ second year at the helm at Coyle in Taunton, could produce the surprise team. Jim Burns' club was the only team to dent the Durfee goal line last year. Once again Coyle's hope will fall upon the shoulders of Mark Doherty who has quarterbacked the Warriors' since his sophomore year. To the North may lie the sleeper of the eoming season, the Bombardiers of Attleboro. Under the able direction of Coach Jim Cassidy, the Jewelers are again expected to pose many problems for their opponents.

Co-captains Kerry Horman and Bill Lefort will be the stal­ wll1"ts of the line with shifty half back Jim Ferrara leading the backfield. The addition of Feehan brings the Bristol County League to its full nine-team eomplement. With each playing eight league games, there is only one open spot in the schedules to be filled with non-league oppo­ nents. . All in all, the Bristol County League should be this season, as in the past, most interesting and competetive with perhaps a few upsets thrown in for spice.

William J. Guste, Jr., state K of C deputy, feels most Catho­ lics now recognize their duty to obey the law. He added: ­ "To require separate facilities, even if they were equal, which they never really were, was and is an obvious and deliberate slight to all Negroes. In effect it downgrades them for no rea­ son than their accident of birth. It says in clear, certain and in­ sulting terms, 'You are not good enough for me.' And it says tha aimply because of their color."

Expects Better Music Sees Improvement to Accomodate Liturgical Chonge and Participating Congregation . BOSTON (NC)-Summing up the current Church music situation, C. Alexander Peloquin observed: "For the people in the vernacular movement, the bat­ tIe is won; for us liturgists, it's just beginning." Peloquin, a teacher, composer and conductor might be called the Leonard Bernstein of Cath. olic music in the United States, intel'!l"upted one of the busiest schedules borne by any musician on this continent for a brief in­ terview here. With the advent of the Mass in English (an event that Pelo­ quin's music ushered in resound­ ingly at the recent Liturgical Week in St. Louis) musicians :face an overwhelming task. Briefly, everything has to be done over again, made new. Not only must music be made for the new liturgical language, but its forms must be revised to accommodate a new element­ the participating congregation. Like Sore Thumb All of a sudden, diction be­ comes an overwhelming con­ cern, not only to the choir' but

250-Pound Bell Gift To New York City OLOT (NC)-Bishop Narciso Jubany Arnau of Gerona blessed in his cathedral here in Spain a 25()-pound bell that the statuary industry of Olot is sending as a gift to New York. The Spanish Minister of Trade, Alberto Ullastres, will present the ben to Francis Cardinal Spellman of New York, on the occasion of a special display of statues and religious articles Sept. 15-Oct. 1 at the permanent exposition of Spanish products in New York.

to the composer, because the Ut­ urgy will be in the language of the people. A false accent, a lengthening of the wrong syllable, a musical line that does not really suit the sense of the words, muddling of parts that obscures the text, might have been borne in Latin, because most people in the congregation were not quite sure what was being sung. Now, with English texts, these things will stand out like a sore thumb. The new liturgy will force an improvement in Church music. Setting music to English words requires a treatment different from Latin, Peloquin noted. The style has to be syllabic; melis­ mata (the singing of groups of notes, rather than a single note, on one syllable) can be used only sparingly, if at all. Even when they are (just barely) possible, English vowels will not bear the kind of elab­ oration that is possible in Latin or Italian, Peloquin remarked. There are also strongly-marked stress-accents, which must be accommodated, and often am­ biguous syllabic quantities which can lead an unwary com­ poser int.o pitfalls.

Council Work

Work of Spi ,it


Continued from Page One a convention of delegates sent by their home churches. "We are the Church because as teachers of the faith, pastors of souls, we represent the entire Church '" * '" as fathers and brothers who personify the com­ munities entrusted to the care of each of us, and as a plenary assembly legitimately convoked by the Holy Father." The Fathers should not be fearful but confident in their deliberations because "the Spirit is here." The fact of the pres­ ence and guidance of the Holy Spirit was stressed three times by the Pope. Two things are to vitalize the Church: the apostol­ ate and the Spirit. Christ estab­ lished both for the Church. The . Apostles - today's bishops - are officially entrusted with the apostolate; the Spirit uses the bierarchy as His ordinary in­ strument. Vatican I In speaking of collegiality the Pope reminded the Church 'that the First Vatican Council had intended to present an authori­ tative expose of the powers and prerogatives of both Pope and Bishops. However, war inter­ rupted the council (Italian Rev­ olution and Seizure of the Papal States). Thus all the Council could do was "its first part dealing with the head of the Church, the Roman Pontiff, and bis sovereign prerogatives re­ garding primacy of jurisdiction and infalUbility of teaching." Difficult Theology Some of the difficult aspects to be treated were outlined by the Holy Father: (a) the nature and the mission of the Church's pastors (bishops); (b) the epis­ copate's "constitutional prerog. atives"; (c) relations between the world's bishops and the Holy See; (d) the "constitutional idea of the Church under its differing Eastern and Western expres­ sions; (e) the hierarchial or­ ganization of the Church. Papacy The position of the Pope in no way defrauds the bishops of their own importance. "No one should regard this centralization as a device put together by pride. It surely will always be tempered and balanced by alert and timely delegation both of authority and of faculties for local pastors. We assure you, our brothers in the episcopa,te, that this centralization is rather a service and a manifestation of the unifying and hierarchical spirit of the Church." Christian Unity It was "with reverence and esteem" that the Pope spoke to the non-Catholic ODservers who flanked him in the tribunes. His one intention, he emphasized, was to remove "every obstacle, every misunderstanding every hesitancy." ' To be "all things to all men" eould today :Je described as "pluralism in practice." How­ ever, the same Apostle Paul also exhorts all to "preserve in unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" because there is only "our Lord, one faith, one Bap­ tism, one God and Father of all." The separated churches he said, were "the churches' that are so far and yet so close to us", the churches of his "sleep­ less nights."

Continued from Page One uation nineteen hundred years ago in his Catholic letter: "Those who hear the word of God with­ out living by it are like a man who sees himself in a mirror, and goes away forgetting imme­ diately the kind of man he is." (St. James 1:23) I do not know of any better description of our situation than that. Because re­ ligion is not religion unless it affects our lives. If a person believes one thing and practices another then his life is a living contradiction. But in order to practice we must know well what we believe. We must know it to the point that we can tell people about it, to the point that we want to tell others about it, and to the poir.t that we practice what we preach. For all these reasons the pro­ gramme of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine is important. It is important to know. It is of the essence that we be inspired. We must know what we believe We must adjust our way ()f lif~ to what we believe. Because Christianity is a Way of Life. And no matter what our fervor, God WiIling,-and with a little effort it can always be stronger, and more effective in our world. That is what Pope John wanted when he summoned the Council: first, to know what Christ wants of us, and then to adjust our­ selves completely to what we believe, and then to present to the world around us a sincere and honest expression of a liv­ ing faith, an articulate faith. This is what every Holy Father in our time has sum­ moned us to. This is what the Ecumenical Council urges us to. This is what every spiritual leader hopes and prays for. And

the firm foundation for all this is laid in the work of the Con­ fraternity of Christian Doctrine. So I instruct the clergy to preach on St:nday, September 27th, on the work of the Confraternity. I urge' them to have meetings of meml:ers of the Confraternity and of those interested in im­ proving and perfecting their work. And I counsel all to be at pains to organize, to activate the programme, and identify themselves with it in every parisI;, of the diocese. We will all b~ better for the interest and effort. And our approach to the world, our impact on the world will be the more sure when we know fully in Whom we have believed, and when there is no shade of conflict be­ tween what we profess to be­ lieve and what we practice. I am deeply grateful for what has a lready been done in the Diocese. But we still have a long way 10 go. In 1965 we are to be host to clergy, religious and laity from the whole New En­ gland area in a Regional Council of thE! Confraternity. Many will come to us fuH of conviction

and rich in experience. May we be willing and able to give to them and! share with them fruits of our own experience of Our Blessed Lord's standard of values. "If you know these things, you shall be blessed if you do them." Faithfully yours in Christ JAMES L. CONNOLLY Bishop of Fall Riv~r.

Continued from Page One parts of the "Church Schema" not yet debated: The Eschato­ logical Aspect of the Church and the Role of Our Lady in the Church; the Lay Apostolate the Church in the Modern World. Schema which must be restud~ led are: the Pastoral Duties of Bishops, Ecumenism, Revelation During the debate on th~ schema, lesser schema-proposi~ tions--(which were once full fledged schemata, but have been reduced by study commissions) will also be presented to the Fathers. However, they will not be de~ bated by long series of pro and co~, spe ches. Instead, "report­ 7 ers aSSIgned by the competent conciliar commissions will pre­ sent the platter of the proposi­ tions to the Fathers and they will simply signify their ap­ proval or disapproval. These propositions include: the Oriental Churches, the Mis­ sionary Activity of the Church Religious, Priests, Matrimony: the Formation of the Clergy Catholic Schools. ' Such a presentation of the propositions will greatly speed up the council's work. As was announced by the Pope some time ago, (1) all the Fathers - Cardinals included­ must present a resume of their talks five days before they are to speak; (2) so as to avoid rep­ etitions, the Moderators after viewing these resum~ can bring certain Fathers to'gether and ask them to name one of their number to represent the group of repetitious speakers; (3) after a discussion is closed, a bishop can still speak on the same subject but only if he has 70 Fathers back him up and sign a petition in favor.
