Educationot Children Is Parents Primary Duty l

!By Mary Tinley Daly , It wouldn't be qUitetruthflil to say that we're in a fever of anticipation over an upcoming PTA meeting ... on the other hand, it" isn't as bad as the story they tell of an expectant mother weepin'g profusely while the doctor --'----0---.---~-­ tries to console her.' "I 'don't mind having an- and· history," she said, "Check'to see that he has done those three." other baby," she's supposed She told 'of a child who stayed to have sobbed, "But I can't up for hours doing a whole page ,<

stand' the thought of ~ight more years of PTA!" Mat t e r of ,,~.:""W"""""'" fact, most par- ,." ,.,........ ents find a midole ground on the sub j e c t: The y realize that a meeting with school" auand thorities with other parIl)nts Is mutually belpful. \. Unless well .organized, howIl)ver, such a meeting presents possibilities of pitfalls: an educator who launches fortn on a long, dlctatoiial tirade, parents who make this their sole social event and prolong it ad infinitum, and~the lady who would air her own grievances . . . . "What This School Needs ..." "Georgie came home last Tuesday _ the day it rained, you know, and his cap and clothes _ were covered with mud _ but I'm getting ahead of ,my story. Anyway, Georgie came home and he said, 'Mummy' he said, ·the children in,that school are 'perf ., ect rowdies. These were his very w»l'ds, ladies and gentlemen,

'perfect rowdies.' Now, I don't mean to say that they were your children. he was talking about. But there are children in this IlChool ... I won't mention any names but I think you all know .whom I'm talking about. "Anyway, those 'boys took my fJon's cap and threw it over the fenc'e into the rectory yard. And

then they made him climb Hie fence to get it back, Over the fence, mind you, not walk through the gate. Why, a'eorgle might have fallen _ or, well, I1lmost anything. I think _ and my husband agrees with me, don't you, Fred - we think that what this school needs ... etc., de." ' Such was our memory of PTA meetings of the past, attended mostly by mothers and they were there only .qecause a prize was given to the class with the greatest proportion of long-suffering representation. PTA Has Changed Fortunately, nowadays; PTA's have' changed, reflecting the fiound judgment and realistic ap-' proach characteristic of today's young parents, as well as the cooperative open _ mindedness of forward-looking teachers. Concerted efforts of fathers, mothers and teachers result in a pooling of thinking on questions vital to I1ll. With the wide age!span in our family, we find ourselves bridges between the old and the new _ many of the young parents being contemporaries of our "old" chlldren and having tots In the early grades while our youngest is In the seventh. We are gratefully

aware of, the change. "

The careful planniI:\g of our present·organization was an eye­ opener. Rather than a I1elter­ skelter get-together, just to meet

and "discuss," those in charge

.had set a definite topic, secured B panel of authorities, each with a time limit, then opened' the meeting to questions.' The topic was "Study"-vague untll we .saw the objective ap-' proach. We learned from the IlChool's principal the difficulties caused by crowded classrooms, of the need of parental interest,. ex:' planation of assignment ~ooks. "]f your. child says he bas nomework In arithmetic, speIUng

of arithmetic, though the assign­ ment book, In the child's' own writing, had stated: "Page II, first row." ' Need Hand at Home One of the points taken up was the' invaluable study technique of separating the known from the unknown, with only a quick 're­ view. of the known and concen­ trated .study time devoted to the unknown. (How many times we have seen our children spend their whole time· and energy over familiar ground, hedging away from really digging In and mastering the new work that has been explained in class that day.) We didn't need a blueprint; nor d')'d the other '.pa)"en'ts, to show us that a certain directional 'hand at home during those homework ·hours could channel youthful and inexperienced efforts toward real progress In stUdy. Underlying the entire parent­ school relationship, and openly expressed, was the truth 'that It· is the parents' primary duty to educate their children: By no Dleans' abrogating their right, ' they simply delegate this author­ Ity, temporarily, to the school. No longer in vogue Is .the attl­ tude'. "H'ere' they al'e, S)·stel·. You

2) The greatest modern au­ thority on the subject highly commended this book: saying to 'the author, "I congratulate you :heartily," , 3) A writer in,a "Digest" arti­ cle used the same title: "Th'i'ee Negro, Popes," and asserted- that , "at least three of,the 'Popes were Negroes." , . 4) Correspondence' of the lead­ ing authority, 'noted above-an­ other priest-who' spent 'many years on research about Negro history and culture-aside from the commended book-in his own writings included the three popes , among his "Negro Saint,S." 5) An article in a' Catholic, religious magazine, in 1955, head­ ed "Were There Negi'o Popes?'" stated: "the opinion that they were 'Negroes enjoys . . . probability," Three ,Saints The Popes under discussion were very earlY popes-Victor I, Melchiades and Gelasius I, who reigned in-the 2nd, 4th and 5th centuries. They were historical and learned pontiffs - all three officially listed as saints. They contributed important and emi­ nently wise decisions and thought to the Church - some still in force today. They lived in a day when the early Christian Church, and the prevailing Roman Empire, which encompassed the whole known world, did not bother, to let 'our later' generations knowprecis.el:y about a man's color - White, yellow, brown or black; they seemed not to care about it, for· themselves or for posterity. This is a simple but well-known his­ torical fact. One writer on the subjec~ "Were There Negro' Popes?" ­ states that "the question' cannot be answered with certainty." Others counter that the assertion cannot in any case be disproved. However, all catalogues of the pontiffs, issued from early times, ' Jist these three distinguished Pope - Saints as Africans. Two were born in Africa and the other was born in Rome of African parents. • Racial Bias Aside from the distinctio~ns made by anthropologists, ethno­ logists 'and other precisioilists, present-day scholars of the 'sub­ ject give us, almost unanimously, this general jui:lgment: If these three holy and learned Popes appeared today in certain' areas of the United States they would certainly find themselves subject . to racial bias, because of color. In his "Stories of Great Saints," (Paulist Press, New York, 1949) Jesuit Father Genild C. Treacy, now director. of Loy­ ola Ret1'eat House, Morristown, N. J., and former president of American Press, pictured and narrated the lives of the'''Three Negro Popes." He was encouraged and assist­ ed in his writings by one 'who is recognized as an ol,ltstand)ng authority on Negro history' 'and ' culture - Jesuit Father Arnold J. Garvy, former professor at 'Loyola University, Chicago. Fa­ ther Garvy, who died in 1950 at the age of 82, had, over a period of 20 years, compiled a vast amount of bibliographical mate­ rial on the Negro - some 25,000 cards with half Ii. million entries ' ' , - and thousands of periodicals, and' clippings. ' . Decisions Still Stand It has been ascertained that Father Treacy relied, in part, upon information collected by Father Garvy ami received a congratulatory letter from him. upon publication of his book. .. 1418 SO.

BASIN HARBOR (NC)­ 4'Lawyers are failing the na­ tion In their historic task of molding and leading pub­ lic opinion," 'the dean of the Bos­ ton College law school has told members of the Vermont Bar Association. , Jesuit Father Robed F. Drinan told the Vermont lawyers that the legal profession to 8 lament­ able' degree has become "8 force of reaction and Ineptitude." Father Drlnan said that all too frequently lawyers' organizations retreat Into sllimce in the face of grave new legal, problems like Juvenile delinquency, divorce and widespread obscene literature. He said that one of the most pressing problems confronting the legal profession Is the urg,ent need for more extensive research 1nto the law's newest problems. He blamed the small amount of money spent on the basic legal research as one of the principal reasons fl1r the failure of the legal profession to cope ·wlth some of society's most l}rgent problems. Inept and Clumsy "The law struggles with the problems of juvenile delinquency. mounting divorce rates and court calendars everywhere are con­ gested with' automobile accident (Cases," said Father Drinan:, "but the law is inept and clumsy be­ (Cause of the lack of adequate so'cio-legal research into prob­ lems new to the law." He said that the best and per­ haps the only method I)y which research required to modernize the law can be accomplished is by the establishment of a law center with adequate research facilities. The most promising place, he said. for such a research ceen tel' is in the law schools of the nation. "The legal profession, bar as­ I!ociations and law school alum­ ni," Father Drinan said, "owe it to the prestige of the law to which they have dedicated their lives 'to provide as rapidlY as possible centers where qualified researchers can unearth those statistics without which no work­ able Jaw can be' written or Im­ plemented."

Law Should Look To Eternal Life Bishop Asserts

Jlohlll\ IL. Thomas, S. J.

st. lLouls University

'ST. PAUL (NC)-Limited visions of civil law' that do not .take into account man's eternal destiny were criti­

My wife and I can't seem to agree on the kind of friends 'we should cultivate. We come from somewhat dif­ ferent family backgrounds. '1'feither Wus gets along very well with the other's former friends. She wants me to (Jrop most of mine because she doesn't approve of some something has been wrong with of the things they do. I your attitude toward companion­ think this is unfair. I tell ship. Do you obje.(:t to your wife ]her she can have her friends and lI'll have mine. What's wrong with th~t? [~k~


:J think you iN e a liz e, Bill, l'· , , .,", that the answer t'-' to YOur question !' 1~il. calls for the '~f.'i making of a few ! "~~" :,\;;,{. necessary dis- l Unctions. Mar­ riage is a part­ nership based

on cOmpanion­ lJhip. When you

X1arry, you

flgree not only to establish a family but to face life together liS two-In-one-flesh. The married 1C0uple are one, joined by a sacra­ mental contract and the deep mystery of marital relations In B 1C0mpanionship for life. Although marriage does not deprive you of Jndlvlduallty, It does oblige you to think always In terms of your family relationships. This Is the over-all picture, lllut, as YOU suggest, reality Isn't Iquite so simple. Former, long standing friendships tend to per­ sist and to be valued. If husband nnd wife cannot agree on these. trouble Is bound to arise. Let's look at the situation a little more ICl0sely and perhaps we can see In what direction the solution wlll lie. Should Share Recreation First, It should be obvious that ,. II married couple should have i;ome friends In common. If they Bre to be real companions for me, they must learn to play to­ gether as well as work together. Indeed, a great part of their entertainment and recreation Mould be shared as, a couple. The habit of doing things, together starts with courtship. It should continue "throughout mar­ riage If marital companionship Js to mean anything in the 1C0uple's lives. Some men appar­ ently forget this. They expect their wives to remain at home taking care of the house and IChildren while they enjoy the 1C0mpanionship of others. In some tiodeties this Is an accepted pat­ tern. For various good reasons, it Js not the American way of doing things. , Second, both husband and wife Ilhould take for granted that their partner may wish to main­ tain some friendships which may not be interesting to them. Op­ position to this may stem from two sources. They may really feel that their partner's friends are not good for them and their marriage. Undue drinking, gam­ lllling, and questionable associa­ tion with the opposite sex may IDe occasioned by such friend­ ships, and the spouse may.rightly object to their continuatIon. Jealousy and Suspicion On the other hand, opposition may stem from over-possessive­ ness and the desire to have the partner entirely to oneself. Some spouses are suspicious and jeal­ <DUS of all friendships in which they, do not share. Some resent the enjoyment which the1r part­ ner apparently receives from them. This attitude does not spring from tlie, desire for true companionship but rather from selfishness or the wish to domi­ nate the partner. In seeking a solution for your lCase, Bill, ask yourself the fol­ lowing questions. Have you cul­ tivated a group of friends which you and your wife enjoy associat­ Jng with as a couple? If not, you ]had best start finding some. for





having some friends whicl) you do not particularly like? If you honestly feel that these friend­ ships are not harmful, you have no reason' to object. Does she object to your friends? Ask your­ self if their company may not be'. incompatible with your present role as husband and father. Finally, does your wife seem selfish and over-possessive? Some women - and men - are. On the other hand, she may only' be

asking fOl' an' even break In companionship. The Important

point for your future happiness

is that you start making friends together as a couple. If you do this, the few friendships you may wish to maintain separately will seem relatively unimportant.

check to secure an adequate family living wage. Many of these, .he said, must put small children into nursery schools, or leave them with baby-sitters or with relatives. Often they let their teenage children run their own lives without adequate su­ pervision. The result in too many cases is a social pattern of delin­ quency, he declared. Woman's Role While some women must work to supplement an inadequate in­ come, the Bishop observed, many others do so only to fill their homes with gadgets or with unnecessary luxuries. ' Woman's role is to be the heart of the home,' the help-mate of her husband, and the full-time mother of her children, the Bish­ op stressed. The common good of society depends on woman acting in-her proper role to pro;' tect the integrity of the family, he said..

cized here by Archbishop William O. Brady of st. Paul. Drawing a parallel between civ­ il law and the canon law of the Church, Archbishop Brady, a na­ tive of Fall River said that "law must be regarded and cherished as a means to serve 11n end more important than the book." "In the' instance of the Church," the Archbishop con­ tinued, "that goal of Church law Is to aid and to help~ to insure, if possible, that men will be good, uplifted, save their souls and gain heaven. Such an expression seems not only natural but es­ sential in describing the func­ tions of religious legislation,"

, Limit Visions

"It may be possible that some

, do not view civil law in that same light," the Archbishop stated, "but think of it as serving the

state as a. goal, or, as promoting

the common good as a total ben­ . efit, or as protecting personal

rights." ' "Such limited visions restrict the role of even civil law much

too much," he declared. "Even

when such limited goals are pro­

perly won, there remains another question-a question of why the common good is to be main­ tained, why personal rights are to be vindicated, why society is to be promoted and justice in everything upheld." ' He said "the answer, of cOUl'se, identifies the goal of all civil law with the expressed goal of Catho­ lic Canon Law, nor can there be any division between them." " Life Eternal ' "All laws; civil decrees as well • as religious directions," he con­ ciuded, "ate aimed to help men to a fuller and a better life; to insure that they will be good­ good men and good citizens-to make men happy as far as hu­ man happiness can reach, to se­ cure the citizen the contentment of a peaceful existence and a peaceful conscie,nce, to hearte~ him with a, vision of a tranqml life here, in anticipation of a life eternal in its beatitude."

Demand for Speed Affects Accuracy of Reporting

instance. Communication was highly in­ adequate also In r" the case of the ~', talk In which r' the Holy Father d Ire c ted the r: Jesuits to avoid 'I the use of to­ bacco. Come to think of It, this Inad­ equacy Is frequent and wide­ BPread In the handling, by press, radio and TV, of news originating in Vatican City. Nor would I draw the line there. I think that an objective Itudy would show t1}at people are poorly Informed by and large. about many eventS of each day. The technologists have tele­ .coped time and space ,for us. They have given us the instru­

ments we need to get and to 'dis­ .emlnate tile news. Our Journalistic practices, however, have not kept pace. In­ deed, from our point of view.

there Is a kind of Frankenstein aspect to the speed of modern communications. We are too much hurried. The demand for faster, faster, faster reporting tends to prevent us from being thorough enough to be truly accurate. And then there are the mad­ dening problems of space in newspapers 'and magazines, of time on radio and TV, and of competition for the attention of the public. . \ Io'alse by Omission We must not blame too harshly the bedevUled repoi'ter who un­ balances what the Pope - or anybody else - says In his search for a striking lead for his story. Nor can we withhold sympathy from the harassed man on the copy desk, handcuffed by head­ line requirements, for simply writing: "Pope urges widows not to remarry,'~ or "Pope tells Jesu­ its to stop smokIng." Neither headline Is false, nor 18 the story und~r the headline false. That trouble Is that both Bre so Inadequate as to be false by omission. ' The Pope did not really "urge Widows not to remalTY." That is, Buch was not the Intent, the bur­ den 01' the point of his talk on widowhood. What the Holy Father' did was to remind' us that wld9whood, lived for Christian motives as a Christian way of life, Is higher, as a state In life, than remar­ riage. The f'tate of widowhood is nobler, ill Itself. than the state of remarriage, in the same way that virginity, for Christian motives, is higher as a state than malTI­ age. But this does rwt mean that marriage Is a low state in life. It is a high state. It is simply not as high, as a state, as virginity. Neither is remarriage an igno­ ble state. But It Is not as noble .as widowhood. Pontiff's Intent The Pope did not "urge widows not to remarry." He could not issue a universal counsel such as that. There are any number of cases where widows ought to l'e­ marry. The Pope knows this. But the Pope was aware also that there is a tendency to look down upon widowhood. Pope Plus wanted to correct this attitude. He wanted to re­ lltore appreciation of the value of the widowed state as a way to higher holiness. . That is what his talk was really









Similarly, the Holy Father re­ minded the Jesuits that theirs is a special way of life. As members of a religious .soclety, they give themselves totally to the service of God and fellowmen. For this service, they need spe­ cial direction, training and disci­ pline. And they ought to put aside everything that Is super­ lluous. Smoking, said the Pope, 1&, one of those superfluities. The fact that he told the JeBu­ to stop smoking was incidental to his brief review of what ·the religious life, especially' the Jesuit life, i8 all about. , We Journalists owe It to mod­ ern man to improve our reporting very markedlY.


Jesuit Answers

Bishop Oxnam


Nearly two tho u ~ and Georgetown University ,stu­ dents and faculty members

were urged by a Jesuit priest to

give thanks that "loving tolera­

tion" has been the historical tradition of Georgetown. Father Frank L. Padner, S.J.• regent of the University's Ed­ mund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, said in the sermon, of the traditional Mass of the Holy Ghost: , "Men and women of George­ town, let us give fervent· thanks todaY, that loving toleration has been the historical tradition of our alma mater. Let us thank God for this Indwelling among us of His Holy Ghost-not in the prideful spirit of the phaTisee, but In the wary and watchful humlllty of the publican. Open to All "Let us resolve 'with the help of our Divine Guide and Advo­ cate to prolong here the Catho­ lic tradition and the separation of Church and State that pre­ vailed in Baltimore's early Mary­ land.

Where the ,Soil Was Shallow is a novel by Jose Giro­ nella (Regnery, $4,95) written several years before his great' work, The Cypresses Believe in God; It is a com­ mon device of publishers to trade upon the success of an author's later work by is­ suing (or re-issuing) earlier romance with· Yvonne the author books, and identifying them asks: "What had happened that they no longer were able to be iOn the jacket or in adver­ apart from each other? He loved

tisement, with the later work. It is not often ,that such Ii gambit' pays off, for the :mW:A~:,:.~;.;:.;;, earlier work Is. more often than not, inferior. "'\ Such Is the :~ case with thIs novel. Th e author has aimed at pre sentlng a sort of universal modern man, in Miguel Serra Rnd then a pic­ ture of the dIs­ organized, 'atomized world in which that man lives (this is better brought out in the original Spanish title of the book: Un Hombre-A Man.> Cleric to Smugglel' Miguel's father is an itinerant cellist, who dies 'shortly after the book opens, while the child is only a few years old. ImmedIately Miguel and Eva. his wife, begin ~the wanderings about Europe which will characterIze the' son's life. There Is a brIef period when Miguel thinks he wants to be­ come 8 Jesuit. He spends a year 1r. a' Belgian seminary, being severely disciplined toward the end because of his pre-occupation with a group of gypsIes encamped near the seminary. . Partly 8S a result of this pun­ ishment, Miguel renounces cleri­ cal life. and mother and son set off together. They travel In France, Spain, and Ireland, and while they are on a mountaln­

leaving Miguel on hIs own, with a moderate fortune.

The boy decides that he must make 8 living In some way. and thinks brIefly of following hIs father as a musician. This is re­ jected in favor of running a bookshop in Paris. Within a short time, Miguel builds up a fine business In this store. He also, Requires a mistress, Yvonne. daughter of his landladY. This Is not Miguel's first experience, In 1l11eit love. While staying with his mother In Ireland he had a brief affair with a young girl hired to teach him English.

He tires of bookselling and of

Yvonne after Il. few years, and is

next attracted to circus life. where he has followed still an­

other girl, a gypsy named Jean­ nette. For her sake he buys the limall circus 1n which she is a trapeze artist, and spends the next few years in Its manage­ ment, at first profitably. Later he loses both the circus and Jeannette. 'Llved Like Gentleman' As the book ends, Miguel has returned to his father's country of Catalonia, and at the sugges­ tion of relatives has entered upon a new career as an importer of smuggled goods from France, and OUl" last picture of him is this: "Sometimes he laughed, and sometimes he wept; sometimes he sinned and sometimes he went to Confession . . . For the rest, he lived like a gentleman." Sometimes it is possible to see, in a confusing picture of a con­ fused life, a part of the univer­ sality of experience that the au­ thor seems to be driving at, but for the most part. Miguel and all those with whom hIs lot is thrown are far too special and Iieparated from our own experi­ ence. The wrIting, too, though this may be a by-product of translation. is awkward, often to the poInt of being laughable. One example must suffice. Of the

Sandy Was a Soldier's Boy (Houghton Mifflin, $3.00) Wandering neal' the Big House on an estate near his rural SCot­ tish home, 10-year-old Alexander Don aid Kilconquhar McBain spies (a) a large squirrel; (b) a glass green-house - and he has a slingshot In his pocket. Hitting the squirrel proves impossible; hitting the greenhouse all too easy. In an ecstasy of 1l1icit JOY. Sandy knocks out 27 panes of glass, only to be immediately ap­ prehended by the nephew of the greenhouse owner. who turns out to be also the commanding off.!­ eel' of the Black Watch regiment in which Sandy's father 'is Pipe Maior. ' .The rest of the summer Sandy spends in work about the estate, to pay for the windows - but it is pleasant work. in which he is accompanied by the Colonel's daughter Sheila, and worried over by the Colonel's aunt. The story 'ends with an imaginary in­ vasion of Scotland, in which Sandy plays a short and heroic role. This Is a thoroughly pleas­ ant and rewarding little book.

Rev. John E. BOYd, Diocesan director of radio actiVities, in­ augurated the 1957 radio season for the Catholic Theatre Guild of New Bedford at Radio Station WNBH. The first presentation was an original, script written for radio by Miss Ellen Gaughan, a 111e111-' bel' of the guild. The play was . titled "St. Jude Thaddeus." Miss Gaughan's play, directed by Christopher Best, was the first of 21 dramatic productions to be broadcast bi-weekly. The play 'dealt with several incidents in tIle life of St. Jude. cousin. servant, and beloved friend of Jesus Christ. The Cath­ ·olic Church honors and invokes St. Jude universally as the patron saint of hopeless cases and things despaired of. The similarity in the nlilme Jude and that of. Judas Iscariot. has caused St. Jude to be forgot­ ten by many through the past. Today however, there are many religious 0 l' del's within the church 'who conduct novenas to the powerful saint.

United Nations Day Prayer Prepare!l

WASHINGTON (NC) A prayer prepared especially for United Nations Day, ·Oct. 24, by Archbishop Robert E. Lucey of San Antonio has been released by the United States Committee for the United Nations. The paryer says in part: "Give to us, we pray, an understanding of international unity and human solidarity. Let us not forget that all men are one In their creation, in their redemption and in their sublime destiny. Give us the light to see that our country belongs to the family of nations;' our people belong tb the' human race."

PISA, Italy (NC) - Dominican Father Thomas McGlynn, who has preached many sermons in his 25 years as a priest. is now completing what he considers his greatest sermon-and it is in stone. , !,'ather, who has had a long career as a sculptor, will complete shortly the 15 and a half-foot statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary which he has cai'ved in accord with the personal des­ cription of Sister Lucy of Fatima, who as a child was one of the three who experienced the visions of the Blessed Virgin at Fatima, Portugal. When completed the statue \vill be shipped to Fatima, Portugal, as the gift. of the American peo­ ple. It will be placed above the door of the basilica there at the order of Bishop Jose Alves Cor- , reia da Silva of Leiria.

In other \\iords. environment and the home react upon one another. Environment can help or hurt the home. Homes, therefore must assist and protect one another." The prelate asked how long "will aspIrants persevere in the choice of living that is proper to the priestly state" in an environ­ ment where human life is treated cheaply. where marriage is a convenient arrangement, and where Sunday is not observed as the Lord's Day. "All but· the rare individual will succumb to seduction in its diverse guises." said B ish 0 p Rehring.

Divinity and Sacrifice

Godlove Yo'u By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheep, D.D• . Saint Peter was willing to admit a Divine Christ, but wi's unwilling to admit' a 'Suffering Christ. "Thou .:a~t:, the' Son of the Living God", he told Our Lord 'at Cesarea Philippi. But when Our Lord s.aid that He must die for the sins of the world Peter rebuked Him. A year and a half later or within a week of Our &avior's Death. when Our Lord told the Greeks that like a seed He must first fall to the ground and then rise again, there was the s-ame misunderstanding on the part of the crowd. They argued that the Christ Who was to come was to be eternal? Why then did He say that He would die?


Neither Peter, at that early moment. nor

the people could reconcile Divinity and a Suf­

fering Humanity, al,though th!! prophe.ts Isaias.

Daniel and Zacharias had clearly prophesied

that Our Divine Lord would be the Suffering

Redeemer. Sometimes we Catholics are like

, Peter' and the crowd, finding it difficult to

reconcile adding g,acrifice. self-denial and a

. cross to our faith in the Divinity of the Church. Is it not enough to believe without, "taking up a cross daily"; is it not enough to receive C0111munion without having it obligate us "to announce the death of the Lord until He come"?' Why if Christ sacrificed His life"for our' sins. do we have to ad'd our sacrifices?

SACRAMENTO (NC) - The quick growth of the retreat move­ ment among Amcrican lay Cath­ olics "tolls the deathknell" of passive Catho~icism, Bishop Rob­ ert J. Dwyer of Reno has said here. He spoke at the eighth western regional conference of the Na­ tional Lay\\'omcn's ~etreat As­ .~.':


Bishop Dwyer said the lay movement has spread with unexampled rapidity to cvery part of the nation. exercises its influence over countless thou­ sands of persons, and is a clear indication of an awakening sen­ sitivity among American Catho­ lics t,o the broader implications of the spiritual life. Deep Catholicism "It tolls the deathknell," he stated, "of that type of Catholi­ cism which is 'merely passive, content with fulfilling the mini­ mum requirements which the Church lays down as essential for participation'in the Mystical Body of Christ, For it is through m e d ita t ion and prayer and through the apparatus o'f'the i'e­ treat that the ability to appre­ ciate. Catholicism in depth, is achieved." Although he praised the sig­ nificance of the retreat move­ ment, Bishop, Dwyer cautioned the delegates against the pitfall of emotionalism in religion. "Surface religion is the bane of Americtt,", he declared. "It is fataJly easy, in' the Church or ,out of it, to allow emotionalism to' serve as a substitute for the r~treat

real thing, We are sometimts astonished to see religion treated as a sort of phenomenon of mass hysteria, and, vast throngs swept off their feet by the personal magnetism of the'revivalist. Two Fold Purpose "There is, actuallY, something very sad in this-the evidence of a great spiritual hunger which 'is' not' assuaged by' any adequate spiritual food, We say this not critically, but with the clear realization that. genuine religion cannot be measured by purely sentimental response. It must' be built up in the soul by long training in the solid truths of the Faith," , The Bishop said a retreat has a twofold function, namely, per-, sonal and social. ,"The individual Catholic makes a retreat," he stated. "primarily for the sake of his own soul'..• The retreat is his withdrawal, his recoiling within himself to be alone with God ... to understand religion in depth. It is only after ' this withdrawal ... that he feels

inspired to return to the world

. in strength, prepared 'to live more

fully and more completely the

Catholic fife." 'But it is of equal importance, he continued, "that no Catholic lives. for himself alone." It is fOl' this 'reason, the, Bishop added. "that the withdrawal of "the re­ treat shOUld, logically,be followed by 'the return to' the ,world with a heightened .sense of the aposto­ late and a fresh,vigOr in carrying out the command of "Christ to teach all ltatioll3.i '

Iridividual Right Concern about the wisdom of the Fifth Amt:ndment is nothing new in American history, Father Kemp continued, noting that just 100 years ago there was a vigor­ ous attempt to have the protec­ tion . against self-incrimination thrown out. Current interest in thl;] amend­ ment, he believes, has been intensified 'by televised hearings which "have brought the issue more before the eye of the public than at any other time in our history." "There have been numerous Instances," he continued,' "where the U. S. courts have been frus­ trated in their effort to obtain evidence. However. whatever the abuses, it is still competely within l'1ght of the individual to appeal to this right assured by the Constitution. The vast machinery of governmental prosecution must find other ways of bringing the accused to justice without invading his right of conscience,"
