Must Teach Christianity Within African 'Context KAMPALA (NC) - The Christian Church is in danger of losing influence with intellectuals of many African countries if it does not train Church leaders to express Christianity in an African context, according to a Protestant chaplain at Dar es ,Salaam University in Tanzania. The Rev. Cuthbert K. Omari said in Uganda during the colonial era the Christian Church

Resume Building Brazil Cathedral RIO DE JANEIRO (NC)-This 'city of four million people will have a new cathedral despite several attempts to stop construction by some priests and lay groups who consider it costly and of little use. Cardinal Eugenio Sales of Rio de Janeiro said building is' going ahead. "Our concern now is how to blend this architectural colussus with the pastoral needs of the city," he added. The cathedral building was started six years' ago by his predecessor, 'the late Cardinal Jamine Barros Camara. , Opponents 'of the project argue that there are already 20 churches in the downtown area where the huge structure is being erected. These include La Candelaria, '. which currently serves as a cathedral. All are almost always empty, opponents note: Most of the white-collar daytime. population of the area .'lives in the 'suburbs. When Cardinal Sales was made Bishop of Natal in the late 1950s, he remodeled the old cathedral there to make a residential complex for low-income families.

played a great role in preparing the intellectual because the Church was so deeply involved in the educational system. He made his views known in an article in Sharing, published by Gaba Publications here. "Some of the most noted of the first generation of political leaders during the awakening of nationalism and independence in Africa," he said "are products of Church schools. They are the people who, after they had been given the philosophy of the dignity of man. could not tolerate the injustice of colonial rule." But in the post-independence era, Chaplain Omari said, when the new elite turned to· the Church for spiritual guidance, they found they were still being served by many of the same old pastors who tended to be conservative or outdated in their approach to many social issues.

Understanding . In addition to needing. leaders who can express the Christian faith in an African context, the Church also needs people who can understand the present generation, the Protesant clergyman said. It is necessary to understand what the people like and dislike, he added. The clergy, J1e explained, must learn to know the members of their congregations and their social background thoroughly. "This involves ... living with the people in their .•. villages, in-· stead of in ,a big parish house where life is; divorced from the life of the people," he said.

Bishop Resigns WASHNGTON (NC) - Pope Paul VI has accepted the resignation of Bishop George L. Leech, 81, of Harrisburg. He has been succeeded automatically by his coadjutor Bishop Joseph T. Daley, 55.

WASHINGTON (NC)-Adopting a more open system of nominating bishops is going to be "a .tough nut to crack" but there is room for optimism, according to a canon lawyer. Father James H. Provost made the comment here after attending the annual convention of the Canon Law Society of America in Atlanta, where a plan was endorsed to involve more than just bishops in the naming of bishops. He is the CLSA's information officer. Father Provost said the plan has been forwarded to all U.S.

Cyprus Situation 'Still Dangerous' WASHINGTON (NC) - The situation on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, where hostilities between the Greek and, Turkish populations brought Gr'i!ece and Turkey to the brink of war in 1967, is "still dangerous," said a Franciscan priest who spent 17 years on the' island. The priest, 69-year-old Father Kevin Mooney, retired this year from his posts as' parish priest in Nicosia, the 'capital' of Cyprus, and representative there of the Latin-rite patriarch of Jerusalem and of the apostolic delegate in Jerusalem. ' Greek Cypriotes make up 79 per cent of, the population and Turkish Cypriotes 18 per cent. When the island became independent in 1960 after 82 years of British rule, the constitution provided for a Greek Cypriote president, a Turkish ,Cypriote vicepresiden.t, and a House of Representatives with 35 Greek Cypriote and 15 T~rkish Cypriote members. Dissatisfaction 'wiJh constitutional changes proposed by the President, Greek Orthodox Archb,ishop Makarios, fed to hostilities between Greek and Turkish Cypriotes in 1963 and a United Nations peace-keeping force was sent to the island in 1964. "There is no solution in sight," Father Mooney said. "Talks have been going on for over three years between representatives of the Greek and Turkish populations. While they have prevented an outbreak of violence, they have not achieved 'anything in the way of a settlement. !

"Credit' for peace is due in large measure to the presence of the UN force," said the priest, who saw the past fighting at close quarters. The church where he was pastor stands on the Green Line, the border between the Greek and Turkish sections of Nicosia, and in 1963 bullets whistled past the door.

Essentially, the plan calls for an ll-member,committee in each diocese to review the needs of the diocese, the' qualifications needed in the next bishop, and possible candidates to fill the post. The recommendations of the committee would then be reveiwed by the priests' senate and forwarded to the local bishop.

A FUTURE PRIEST NEEDS YOUR HELP

Have you ever wished you had a son a priest? Now you can have a 'priest of your own'-and share forever in all the good' he does. . . . Throughout the Near East each year, grateful bishops ordain hundreds of new priests trained by people like you .. , . Their own families are too poor to support them in training, 'but good Catholics in America 'adopted' these seminarians, encouraged them all the way to ordination.... In some inspiring cases, this support was given at personal sacrifice. . . . How carl you begin? Write to us now. We'll send you the name of a young seminarian who needs you, and he will write to you. Make the pay' ments for his training to suit your convenience ($15.00 a month, or $180 a year, or the total $1,080 all at once). Join your sacrifices to his, and at every Sacrifice of the Mass, he will always remember who made it possible:.

Look at the nearest $10 bill. What is it actually worth? Only what it will buy. Today, it will hardly buy enough to feed a family for two days.

November is the month of the Holy Souls.

Depe.rsonQlizati.on People complain that they live in a depersonalized society. , They indicate that they are frustrated at being treated '. in the mass, as units on a chart, as figures ina percentage': r . Perhaps'this explains'in' some measure why the hippies yearn to break away from society; but, in the process, they so often merely move from one depersonalized segment of society to another. This explains, too,~why some people look with· longing at the commune where each individual attains importance simply because he is" one among . . just a few others. But the answer to the complaint of depersonalization begins within the individual. . If each person is aware of himself as a special creation of Almighty God; as a child of God and brother or sister . to Christ, as an heir of heaven, then he already has the reason for· his importance. AQd it is the real reason - not any wrong reasons like status or health or money that may carry a person along for a while ana then bring him to . ·collapse. Once a person is dWare of his individual importance in the view of God' and for the rest of mankind, then he can' also see the value of his thinking and speaking and acting. He can see where his life has valu~ even in its smallest. and most hidden implications. He can see that he can touch other people and influence 'al1d transform them. It is not done on a global scale, to be sure, but the . effect is nevertheless still real and valid. Then his attitude is not to flee society, not to cop out, . ,not to turn away from' the human race, but to transform it from within, beginning with himself and with those closest to him and around him. This is the leaven in the mass that Christ speaks of. It is the way ofthe Christian. ' .

'Meeting".:"

Continued from Page One Neil Kluepfel, ,publisher, 23rd -Publications, New York' City, asked the delegates' to become physically involved in the learning experience as doers and not just teachers. Dr. Harper, speaking in the auditorium of the Deauville Hotel, noted that the youths of today "aren't interested in think- ' ing about religious truths but only want to experience the warmth and comfort of the human expression of their reality. But most interestingly for those of us who bear formal responsibility for their development, we've discovered that they hold us responsible for their' religious turmoil and claim that we have failed them." Mr. Kleupfel, in the auditorium of the Carillon Hotel spoke on two elements that are essential in the religious education, "ongoing parental education and earlier formal education programs." He also explored the reason children and adults have an innate "need to know." Comparing this drive to adult education, Mr., Kleupfel stated "need to know explains why our best efforts in adult education concern sacrament preparation programs. The big question is how we can create need to know situations for continuing adult education." Bishop Joseph L. Bernardin, General Secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, in his closing remarks for the opening session noted that "we live in an age of growth, change and wavering levels of polarity." He. stressed the shared responsibilities of bishops and religious 'educators in providing a faith understanding for human experience today.

Bishop 'C·Walsh Backs Nixon China Policy

Freetown Graphologist Explains, Writing Reveals Character at SHA Book Fair

LOS ANGELES (NC)-Bishop James E. Walsh, released last year from a Chinese Communist prison, said here that establishing diplomatic relations with Communist China "is the only sensible thing to do." The 80-year-old Maryknoll . bishop had spent 40 year.s in China, 12 of them as a prisoner . of the Communist regime. "In principle," he said, "there should be communication between nations. We cannot ostra. cize each other. If we are to go around examining each others' credentials, who can- pass nius~ ter?" "The Chinese," he said in an interview with The. Tidings, Los Angeles archdiocesan newspaper, "have a natural genius for friendship and sociability. Establishing communications with them may help bring about a modification of the Chinese government's policies and perhaps eventually eyen be of some help to the Church." 'Sensible Thing' Asked if he supports President Nixon's move to establish U. S. relations with mainland China, he replied: "Of course. I think it's the only sensible thing to do." Bishop Walsh was here to concelebrate aMass on the silver jubilee of the episcopal ordination of Archbishop Timothy Manning of Los Angeles. Bishop Walsh, interviewed 'at the Maryknoll Fathers' house here in the central city, wore a wool cardigan sweater under his suit coat imd the same style Roman collar he wore 25 years ago. He seemed frail but his light. blue eyes were clear and bright, lighting with the animation and emphases of his conversation. "If the Chinese people ever

got the opportunity to assert themselves and were able to free themselves from the slavery of communism, they would welcome the missionaries back with open arms. 'Changed Externally' "I don't think there has been a change in the basic mentality of the older Chinese. They are just as good and just as friendly as they ever were. But they have changed externally to stay out of . jail, more restrained in manner, impelled by a desire to stay on the safe side and keep out of trouble." The bishop was free in China from 1948 to 1958, when he was jailed. He had been under Communist surveillance since 1951 but was free to move: about and so had opportunity for seven years to watch comn;lUnism establish itself. Bishop Walsh was imprisoned in Shanghai's British-built Ward Road Jail which, he said, held 20,000 prisoners. "During that time," he said, "I never saw any priest, bishop or foreigner - except my brother who was allowed to come and visit me." He said he had no news at all of Bishop Ignatius Kung of Shanghai, who was sentenced to life imprisonment. .,

Catholic' Weekly lFacingCrisis FRANKFURT (NC)-Publik, a Catholic weekly established here three years ago with the financial support of the German bishops, is facing a financial crisis. Despite an investment of some $7 million, the paper, which was meant to set a new course in German Catholic journalism, has failed to attract a large readership. Its circulatiQ.n is about 95,000 and there are only 9,000 regular subscribers - less than the minimum considered necessary for survival. , Moreover, editor Alois Schardt a Munich television director on leave of absence from that job, and his staff have adopted policies that are arousing growing opposition, particularly from the bishops . of the traditionalIy Catholic Rhine-Ruhr region. Most German Catholics still seem to prefer the more sedate style and makeup of the diocesan press, whose publishers feel that the money diverted by the bishops to Publik might more profitably be given to their papers so they can compete with mass-circulation general press. Catholic publications like the Rheinischke Merkur of Cologne and the Deutsche Tagespost of Wuerzburg are struggling to survive, although they are more representative of Catholic opinion than Publik, which appeals mainly to the intelligentsia. Several bishops have pleaded for press policies more in keeping with predominant Catholic trends.

"The code is a major 'problemin the industry because all the trade papers write about-and nobody ever praises-the rating, system," Valenti said. "As a're· sult,the code is under heavy fire.

MARY CARSON

"Well, we were poor when I was a kid. We had to struggle. My father worked 16 hours a day. My mother took in washing. The kids in the family all did odd jobs. I used to lug groceries when I was eight years old, and if I got a nickel, I thought I was rich. We all worked together, and saved until we made a better life for ourselves." That story is often, righteously repeated. The difference is that there was a father setting the example. The mother worked with him. There was a bond of unity and love in the family. Who Will Save?

children. And they all live in a three room tenement apartment in a large city ghetto. The plumbing is faulty, the refrigerator is about to give up. There is rarely any hot water, and very little heat in the Winter. Twice a month Shirley gets a welfare check to support her family. But she is not a very good manager and the money doesn't bring the nutritional value that it should. Besides, the prices are very high at the corner grocery ... and Shirley' can't get to any other place to shop. Sickness, malnutrition, emotional disturbance and despair share Shirley's three room tenement. Why, Why, Why? Why did she let herself get into such a situation? Why did she have all those children? Why didn't she do more with her life? Why didn't she? Why didn't she? Why didn't she? Why is she the way she is?

R I" " xperts on e Iglon, Communism to Meet

LONDON (NC)-A meeting of experts on religion in Communist countries is being organized by the Center for the Study of Religion and Communism. The exact date of the meeting was not set..The center, founded by John Lawrence, an Anglican, studies and analyzes. a wide range of internationai newspapers, tiooks and other publications to appraise how the various communist regimes are be~ having toward organized religion. The center's director is Anglican Father Michael Bourdeaux. Among its patrons are Anglican Archbishop Michael Ramsey of Canterbury, Roman Catholic Cardinal Franz Koenig of Vienna, Britain's chief rabbi, Louis Jakobovits; and President Willia~ Tol~ert of Liberia. :

Having nothing all her life, Shirley's one deep desire was to have something. And when she "came of age" the one thing she could have, one thing to call her own, was a chlid. She had never known "family," "home," "security." And if' she had never known them, how could she learn them? So she had a. child when she and another ... was only 15 and another 'and ·.another. These were the only riches she she could amass. But she didn't have the knowledge or· experience to handle her riches, and she followed in the footsteps of the exampie of the generations that had been her forebears. But now there is no room for the baby Shirley is carrying. There are people who actively oppose legalized abortion,. but they won't be able to save Shirley's baby. Shirley doesn't have $150 to pay for a legal abortion. Her baby will die in the kitchen of a woman on the block who knows how to do such things. It will" cost Shirley only $25 ... and maybe her life. Who will save Shirley'sbi:lby?

Cemetery Service Speaks of Hope for the Bereaved' It is at the grave that the community. often confronts the stark reality of the loss of the person. This part of the funeral should, therefore, by its prayers and readings speak' to. the needs of the people gathered at the grave. It is appropriate to hear the Word of God again, It is also ap-

propriate for the community to gather into general intercessions some of its prayers and hopes concerning this situation. The priest, in turn, prays that the deceased might enjoy the fulness of life, and that those who survive may prepare for the day on which their lives will be radically

transformed by the experience of death. Having heard the Word and been strengthened by.. the prayer of the community, the community departs-to continue their attempts to be good messengers of the Gospel, and to try to understand better the message of God contained in the death of their beloved.

WHITE PALL ON CASKET: Presentation of gifts before the pall-covered casket. Continued from Page Ten The Funeral Mass should bring out as clearly a~, possible the paschal and hopeful character of the occasion of Christian death. Its signs and symbols are very important here: the color of the garments, the readings, the music; in general, the attitude created at the Mass often is the most lasting for the community. At the Funeral Mass many sym-

boIs of new baptismal life are used: holy water, recalling the baptism itself; the paschal' candle, recalling the baptismal prayer 'that,' as a result of a light-filled life the newly bap.tized may meet Christ with all the saints; the white pall, bringing to mind the baptismal garment, an outward sign of Christian dignity; and the prayer that this dignity would be brought unstained to everlasting life.

GATHERING AFTER FUNERAL: Support and concern community for the family at their loss of loved one. Gathering After F~eral It is very important that the copcern of the commqnity not stop at the cemetery. While the ritual burial is now over, the concern and support of the community must be carried over into every day life. It is certainly'appropriate, therefore, that the community gather after the funeral· ritual 'for some kind of collation. While the occasion of death for the Christian will always be difficult and hard to understand, the concern and support 'of the community of believers will be an essential factor not only in assisting the immediate survi\:ors . to work through the situation, .but also to express to all men the faith of this particular community in the Word of God, in' his message of life everlasting. In order that this expression of faith be a clear sign to all men, certain important component factors must be always taken into consideration.

MILWAUKEE (NC)-The Canon Law Society of America has added its voice to a growing number of critics of the proposed "Lex Fundamentalis" or basic law of the Church. The society does not believe the Church needs such a written constitution, according to Father .William J. La Due,who attended the society's annual convention

Church' laws which are to be restructured. Father La Due said the CLSA has three main objections to the Lex: The fact that there is a great deal of dispute over whether a written constitution for the Church is possible or even theologically sound; .. The Lex in its present form

presents a very narrow understanding of the Church; The Lex, as written, actually is regressive. Explaining the society's posi-. tion, Father La Due pointed out that never before has there been an attempt to write a constitution for the Church, even in the Middle Ages when canonical sciences were flourishing.

Cardinal Dearden cannot succeed himself as president. He served five years because the bishops felt the first president needed a longer term to insure the orderly growth of the two American Church organizations. Under Cardinal Dearden's leadership, the American Church has moved cautiously forward on renewal matters. The cardinal has been described by persons close to him as moderately liberal and politically adroit. They say one of his chief strengths lies in his ability to work with bishops of different' persuasions.

Example of Obedience

ExU~d· P·re'late Showed Loyalty to Church . '. NEW YORK (NC) -. Cardinal Jpzsef Mindszenty' demonstrated noble examples of obedjence and submission when he left Hungary and went to Rome at .Pope Paul's request, says columni!,t Father Daniel Lyons.

The two most 'famous or infamous words in Catholic education as' far as I' am concerned .are "Si~ter$ays ..." Now we all know that children, especially young children, "His deepest wish was to rerespect their teachers beyond all reason, but t~is is espemain in Hungary with his people cially true for Sister. Some,how Sister is not like Mrs." {or a Christmas that would de- , . .' . but when the Holy Father. light the younger members of the , made his wishes clear, the: priSo,.and-So or Mr. X who family (especially Phronsie) by mate obeyed and went into exile are 'also teachers. Sister is making tree decorations and forever," said the Jesuit when Sister and all that title connotes. So when that first grader comes home and says that Sister says' we need toothpick~ for class tomorrow, you had better make up your mind that you inust get those toothpicks under pairi of death. And when Sister says that· children should brush their teeth three times a day,· you had better believe that (after years of reminding and begging for the same end) your first grader will rush his tt;eth three times a day. Not an. Ogre .

. Actually, I find it a' great pleasure that someone can get something. out of the children,. because I can't.. The difficulty is 'that as the children grow older the" come to realize that Sister is Sister and not the fount of all knOWledge, and she certainly is not an ogre, so Sister~s authority begins to be, less pronounced' and we lose that little edge that we once had. Certainly though it is a pleas'ure to see children- have some respect for something or' someone. If there has been a change in children, it has been mainly in the area of re!!pect for the authority of age. This has become a thing of the past. We are bringing up our children to be thinkers, whjch is a good thing, and' we do not expect them to swallow everything: they are told merely because people are older than they are. The difficulty with this approach is that we cannot always depend . upon children to be tactful or to show courteous respect to elders and they .sometimes become querulous or ·outright disrespectful. So for as long as it lasts I will sit back and revel in those magical words which are capable of moving mountains, or at least Jason and the girls: ~'Sister says. "

Belts were her thing last year and she made one 'for me also, that was of gold mesh with tiny hand-s,ewn blue beads. These gifts were not only lovely and original but they were also filled with the thoughts of the creator. Presently the magazines are filled with hints,. patterns and send-away kits to get you started on your Christmas projects early and really ,make this an old-fashioned Christmas.

Doctor Urges Changes in Quality Of Care for M'entally Retarded WASHINGTON (NC)-If the quality of care for the mentally retarded is to go up, the number of professionals paid to do the caring must go down. Changes in the manpower system, not more power, is the key· to better care, said Dr. E. Fuller Torrey. He is special assistant· to the director of the National Institute of Mental Health. Torrey, whose views are not necessarily those of the NIMH, told a mental retardation symposium here that immediate abolition of the present manpower systems in institutions for the mentally retarded "would be the most important first step which could be taken toward achieving a system in which people care." It is easy for officials to call for more money to improve the care system, but "more money without massive changes in the personnel system will accomplish very little," he said. . Quoting writer MiguelCervantes, he noted that money "may only cover a dung hill with a piece of tapestry when a procession goes by." To get better care for the retarded, described by Torrey· as society's "non-princesses," all job categories, all titles and all pay scales should be aboJjshed at the institutions that purport to do the caring, he suggested. Irrelevant Training "The manpower system is archaic and counterproductivethe selection of people is illogical, their training irrelevant, the rewards of their work are antithetical to caring, and they bankrupt the system," he added. Torrey's indiCtment was aimed in partic1;llar at professionals

who he said offer no guarantee that their services measure up to their advanced degrees, high pay and high status. Institutions, "our name for one kind of throw-away container for throw-away people," Torrey said, have about 73,000 fulltime personnel caring for approximately 200,000 of the nation's estimated six million mentally retarded. That breaks down to about one staff person for .every two· institutionalized retardates. Although administrators may call for more personnel and more professionals to do the job, Tor. they believes that "in the case of professionals we may even need fewer of them." REV. ALFRED R.

Man With A Unique Hobby We would like to share with you the personal insights of a man who has travelled extensively in mission countries and who has the unique "hobby," as' he calls it, of making friends among young people of every race, creed, and nationality, and keeping in touch witlll them all,· although there are thousands. . We are referring to our friend, Archbishop Sergio Pignedoli, the President of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. . The Archbishop arrived from Rome in September to meet and speak with the Society's Diocesan Directors meeting in New York. After ·telling us about his fascinating hobby, the Archbishop went on to relate what he believes we as adult Christians, and especially as American Catholics, have to give to' our young people, as well as the whole world . . . "The youth of today_ presents a vivid example of a world in quest of God. What do they seem to be looking for today? Precisely what they have always looked for-great ideals, generous dreams, a brighter and better future. The young people of today, moreover, show signs of having a conscience which is more than ordinarily alert and sensitive in relation to social problems. Present day youth well realizes and experiences the insufficiency of mere possessions, and they are actively searching for something more satisfying to their human sense of values. Our youth know what it is 'to have everything!' They know there must be 'somethilllg more,' so the search goes on." "The experience of the youth today confirms this fact: that the world expects something very 'different' from us; it expects from us something it hasn't got. But if we insist on giving to the world things which it has got already without us, tl).E\n we tend to beco.me irrelevant-if not ridiculous. What the world asks of us is that we should be unto it 'signs of a higher Reality.' "Here is the argument: Ought we not first attempt to resolve problems such as social injustice, hunger, ignorance, oppression? Ought we not labor to give man a human existence before we concern ourselves with making him a Christian? And we answer at once that this distinction is to .a large extent an artificial distinction." "Missionar!.cs of every age have always managed to accomplish both things. And so I feel that our Missions. do not have to make any apology if they have made every effort (and they always have) to find solutions for the social problems they came up against. And when we stop to c~nsider the poverty of the resources which are at their disposal; when we realize how puny they are in comparison with those enjoyed by the big international agencies; we find that the achievements of our Missions in the field of social service are really very considerable; worthy, in fact, to stand comparison with those of Governments or international agencies • • ." "God. is to be found only in friendship and in love. He wishes to talk with His friends face to face. We wish our young friends the great joy of finding His friendship. If a young man chooses to enter into this friendship, he also settles for friendship with all .his brethren; he decides to get out of the straightjacket of his own selfishness and to bring the encouragement of hope to men somehow or other. And with the hope, he brings the friendship' of Him Who is our Hope, our Joy, our Certitude!" -. Please send a generous sacrifice for our missionaries today because you are their only means of support, but even more, because you are their friends!

VATICAN CITY (NC)-In a , hard-hitting document from Pope Paul's own justi.ce and peace commission, the 1971 Synod of Bishops was asked to help gear up the Church for action against injustices that exist both within the Church and in the rest of the world. As the synod began its probing into the problems of world justice, the. Pontifical Commission on Justice and Peace asked the bishops to: Deplore the mon,etary action of "the few rich nations which adversely affects the welfare and development of two billion people." Urge greater respect for those who refuse to bear arms in "certain wars or in. certain acts of war." Solve the injustices witl)in the Church,especially where "certain Church, institutions", compromise with "social, economic and political structures that generate injustice." The 19-page document: produced by the pontifical commission at its general assembly in the Vatican in late September, was addressed to "the fathers of the synod" to make -them more aware of the "mission of the Church in building a new world of justice and peace."

S bishops' study made public earlier this year indicated that, while most American priests are in favor of optional celibacy, most would not marry if they had the option to do so. "However one interprets this," Cardinal Dearden said, "it seems at least to point to the conclusion that the discipiine of celibacy is not in itself 'the heart of the matter."
