Francis McCarthy, Somerset pastor who heads up the program in the Fall River Diocese. "The value of this clothing was placed at $332,510," Father McCarthy reported as he expressed the hope that the

parishes will again demonstrate their concern for their less-fortunate brethren in all parts of the world. "Our realization of 233,000 pounds compares most favorably with the national diocesan average of 122,302 pounds," Father McCarthy ~mphasized. "And, th~ $332,510 value of our diocesan collection last year compares with the national'diocesan aver_ age value of $175,865 last year," said the pastor of St. Patrick's

parish in Somerset. "It is most heartening to us who are closely associated with the annual Thanksgiving Clothing Collection to see so many kind and considerate people who are ready to discard warm articles really before they originally intended so as to help the needy under-clothed individuals scattered throughout the four corners of the world," the Somerset pastor declflred.

Several of the observers have remarked that these are the best seats in the basilica. They can see the proceedings much better than many of the bishops, particularly those seated at the back of the tiers of seats. Throughout the week, the observer-delegates attend private meetings where experts on the various subjects under discussion consult with them. In these meetings one of the first prerequisites for ecumenical discussions is being fulfilled - that earnest discussions on what each of the bodies believes be carried out in a calm and thorough man_ ner. There 'has been much speculation upon the results of this first confrontation betWeen Catholics and their separated b'rethren at an Ecumenical Council. Both Protestant and Catholic officials hastened to caution those who wrongly believe that Christian unity will pe accomplished at this Council. Beyond Expectations At the same time, however, both groups have expressed some surprise at the great s'teps already taken toward Christian unity. A few, indeed, have expressed amazement that, when they had stripped off the heavy layer of polemic which has accumulated they found that there was a broader basis for agreement than they had expected earlier. Before recounting some of the views expressed by several Protestant observers, it is necessary to make some distinctions. First of 'all, most of the non-Catholic denominations represented at the Second Vatican Council are of the traditional Protestant heritage. . While the traditional Protestant churches accept Holy Scrip_ ture as the basis for their faith they do not generally believ~ in a literal, word-for-word interpretation of the Bible as do the more fundamentalist Protestant bodies. Fundamentalists CabO And, most 'important of all the traditional Protestant chur~hes regard the multiplicity of Christian confessions as a scandal The fundam_ntalists, generally 'have .no such qualms. In fa~ many of the, latter regard this proliferation as a benefit. ' As a result,there has beenwithin those more traditional bodies which are affiliated with the World Council of Churchesa tendency to draw together and there have been several mergers within those ranks. On the other hand, the more fundamentalist ' gro~ps have organized t-o oppose ecumeniciSin. Most of the impetus for Catholic-Protestant ecumenicism has come from two areas-Northern Europe and the mission fieldsAsia and Africa. In Gefmany particularly, there has been ~ great tide of ecumenism, basically among the Catholic Church and the Evangelical or Lutheran bodies.

Mazgaj, now' a professor at St. John Vianney'.!1 Seminary in Bloomingdale here ,in Ohio, made the report 'in am article in the Steubenville Register, newspaper of the diocese. "In September of this year" he wrote, "the Polish comm~ nists began the liquidation of convents and other institutions run by the Sisters. "The Sisters from the confiscated convents and institutions are sent to locations similar to concentration camps, where nuns of various orders are now being forced to live together, separated from society. These camps are actually the remains of ghettos created for the Jewish population under the Nazis during the last war." He call~d it "the kind of persecution that communist Poland manages to a great degree te hide from the eyes of a :free world." He said most of the removabJ of the Sisters have been accomplished by trickery to avoid violence and the possibili ty crl publicity.

WASHINGTON (NC) The specter of a truculent eommunist China holding a, second communist veto in the United Nations Security Council has been fended off for another year. Much to the relief of Washington, the United Nations defeated for the' 13th consecutive time a move to give China's UN seat to the communist government of the mainland. The United States, which had led the fight each year against admission of the Peking govern_ ment to the world organizati9n dedicated to peace, expressed "gratification" at the 56-to-42 vote of rejection. Twelve nations abstained. Outright Refusal This year, as in the session of the past year, the vote wac outright refusal to seat the communists. In 11 previous sessions, the assembly had voted, with a dIminishing margin between yeas and nays, to postpone consideration of the question of seating. Those in favor of seating Red China were mainly the communist bloc, including Cuba, the Asian and most of the Arab countries, joined by the three Scandinavian countries, the United Kingdom, seven African countries formerly under British administration, and Guinea and Mali. Opposed were the U.S., the Latin American countries, the rest of Europe, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and }5 French-speaking African countries. Portugal - which has not hidden its disenchantment with its NATO allies since India's invasion of Goa and the belaboring it receives in the UN OIl the subject of its African possessions - was among those abstaining.

He asked the attom~ys gene:ral to "urge on the Supreme '~urt the proposition that the ~luntary use of prayer in the ::::ation's public schoolo la not til violation of the Constitution d the Uni1:ed States." iOe:Je Penelling Finan's letter invited the state liegal office:rs to join .with him. :l:n an amicus curiae (friend of fhe court) brief in Bcase no.w f!)ending before the high court. In that .case, a Baltimore woman is, challenging the concrtitutionality of Bible reading ond reoitation oftbe Lord's ~rayer in public schools. The SupremeCow.:t agreed to consider the .case.

"!Every ,single person I :met ·gavemea gift of some kind, no' matter ·how small or large. "They work ,very' hard in the fields, even (the women, 'and 'because they marry very ·young, they look'old ·when they are 35," l'JIrg, Gaboury said, 'as she described some'of ·the weddings. "Weddings are held at a~y time and 'are rather 'helter·skelter. The ·bride and groom, and often there are three.or··four Qt the same 'time, stand 'at the pews and the attendants sit 'anywhere in 'the 'church. 'Mass is celebrated <first and after that ·they move·up,tothe altar. Baptisms are even'more 'heciic," she added,"fO!' they are 'held on fiesta days and ·all the ·babies born since 'the last 'fiesta are brought to 'the :church, 'hundyeds in one dllY." In Father Nincentts church, only about 76 people attend Mass and "the 'peQple readi!y furnish excuses, ·including .Jack of proper <clothes, ·for ·their absence.

A matter of life and death. How oten the words are used-and how seldom do fhey really reflect the facts. They are used to dramatize a situation, to express a critical s-tate of affairs, to call · attc jon to a serious matter. But rarely do they tell the literal truth. But here is one instance where they do-the Annual Thanksgiving Clothing Drive. . Strange, isn't it, to think th3lt someone has the means of saving a life thrown in an attic or tucked away in a doset or jammed into a trunk? But it is the literal truth that a blanket, a child's coat, · a few yards of remnant, a worn pair of shoes-these ,can · mean literally life or death to some person in a refugee eamp of Europe or on a sampan in Hong Kong harbor or on the chilly slopes of a mountain in Peru., ' There is really very little necessity of stressing the importance of the Clothing Drive. Through the years the Catholics of America-and their non-Catholic neighbors as well- have donated old but usable clothing and shoes and · blankets for the benefit of the poor of the world. These _clothes are sent to centers where they are sorted and · cleaned and sent by the bail overseas.' And then they are · distributed by workers of the Catholic Relief ServiceNational Catholic Welfare Conference to men and women and children possessing' only one qualification, the only one asked of them-need. \fhnOlA.Clh the uk With thE But it is good for the donors to know exaetly what their gift accomplishes-to try to visualize the smile on By REV.

I always thought that thai Church was the' one u.... changea.ble thing In this tUIIbulent world. Now everyday'S newspaper refers to all kinds of changes. Why is everyone, the Bishops included, so eagellP to change our religion? Mr. L.n.

So far, the Bishops have only discussed liturgical problemt'l that the Church may face in a changing world. No th i n g has been definitely changed as yet. But let's say that there are changes ·t hat come a -b 0 u t , what wil1 be changed? The essentials!! Of course not. No one can change what God 'hae decided or what our own natuio demands. ,': For instance, no matter whafl we shall always adore God through the Sacrifice of the Mass because this is God's e:.pressed Will and our only truly natural way' to express adequately our adoration. However, how can this esse&tial thing ever be meaningfu'l and available for us? Well, we have greatly changed in the last 2000 years. The essentials aPe the same but the methods used to make this essential something real and vital to our live. must bridge the gap between the essential and our changes. Here, however, there is a danger. Because there are external and secondary adjus~ ments; because the Church hal used every available means to study God's revealed truth moN · deeply and fully, this is not su&. ficient to think that the Church is being swung about like • weather vane.' , . We cannot reduce our religioa to the practice of certain exteri.01' rites or rubrics. ReligiOll would then' become only OU!' habitual way of thinking 01, doing, or repeating certain set actions. Such a traditionalism would become a oomfortable - escape, but not be religion. . Religion is our relationship • God. By revelation we have learned that such a relationship - is that of an adopted son to His 'Father. Yet the conne"ction m ,even more intense for this Father · of ours' gives us sustaining life which an adopted Father cannoL Further, this life 'as a chiH .of God, fellow brother with eveq other creature on earth, is goVerned only by love of God ancl · love of neighbor. Whatever CaD. 'better stir up and express such a love is good. But since we u" ceasingly' change in what we call progress espeCially in education, we must f'md recently adaptive means to express and live our love. . The greatest danger that the Church faces' is that of being rejected because it is thougbll some old, archaic institution made for men a long time ago. It is the Church's work-everywhere, all the time, to' present and live the essentials revealed by the Divine Teacher. For thi1J she must use the means and methods ·that are natural for a particular people, culture, time. Religion must ever.be something real, motivating in everyone'. · life and never something put on, make-believe. The change? Yes, in not what God has said but in how we caB answer better to God's call.

Hymn. Actually, of course, in most of our parishes we do not sing, and the Introit is not iJsed as an ,Entrance Hymn. And this is only one sm.all aspect of the confusion and misunderstanding and hopeless habits which haw reduced Catholic public worship to the level of pious formality. In any case, it is ·the intentioa of the Church to place those words on our lips as we begin the celebration of the Eucharist · today. They express so beautifully the great benefit 01. liturgy. Here God humbles us in :m. ·truth. We fiild our human plaee, . our bearings, our direction whell we turn to Him' as we do ill , public worship. Such a humbling is an elevating of man and not a depression. It is every time a rediscovery of the true dimellsions of human life. . TUESDAY-St. Felix 01 Valois, Confessor. It is in the house · of the Lord, in our public worship; that we grow "like a cedar 01 Lebanon" (Introit). A strange contrast '00 the commonly accepted notion that religion stunt1s human growth and puts an end to human advancement But the Christian insists that it is true and the. liturgy supports him. He insists that without the "open end" of which God's Word assures us (victory over death) even our tremendous advances in science and technol_ ogy are an illusory "growing." But with an open sky and 11 transcendent goal every step on the path of man's earthly domin_ ion over things and nature can be true growth, true offering, a true advance toward the consummation of the kingdom. WEDNESDAY - Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is the presentation of ourselves (and through us all creatures) in the temple of His glory, now in sacramental worship and ultimately in the Beatific Vision, that is the key to worth and value.

NOW WE'RE ELEVEN: Th~ 10-child family of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Caron, South Swansea, expanded last Saturday to 11, when eight year old Mak Koo Lim, Korean orphan, arrived by air from his native land after three years of negotiations. Front, from left, Susan, eight; Carolyn,

The family had' a visit of inspection from a representative of the Department of Immigration and Naturalization, they paid for their prospec- ' tive ,son's plane fare from Korea to New York, they they settled' down to wait for him. Meantime their own family had increased to 10 children. They knew their Korean son's name--Mak Koo Lim-his birth_ day-April 4--and even exactly what he looked like. The Fall River Catholic Welfare Bureau. had been sent a snapshot of eight year old Mak at the beginning of negotiations. The Carons borrowed it and had an enlargement made. For months before Mak's arrival it occupied a place of honor in the living room. As a result, when seven of the Caron children accompanied their parents to Idlewild Airport b 'New York last Saturday to meet their new brother, all recognized him with no trouble. Mak was scheduled to arrive at Idlewild 6:30 Saturday morning, :18id Edward, but plane trouble, delays en route and bad weather delayed him until 5:30 that night. As a result, he was almost in a stupor from fatigue. So Many Cars Ris new family was pretty tired too. They were on hapd at the airport at 5:30 in the morning, spent the day sightseeing in Manhattan when they learned there'd be a delay, and finally

got home to South Swansea at. 11 Saturday night. Mak sat on the edge of the front seat of the car for the first hour going 'home," said Beatrice Caron. "He couldn't take hill eyes off all the cars on the highway-but.then he kept dropping off to sleep." Seen the day after his arrival, . however, the handsome' little' Korean already seemed well ad_ ; justed to life in Massachusetts.. Although he speaks no English ' at all, he romped' happ'ily with the young Carons and was par- . ticularly fascinated by the youngsters' toy cars and trucks. He attended 'Mass with the' family and "seemed right at home with everything, blessing , himself, using holy water and genuflecting," said Beatrice. She dressed him in some carefully saved clothes of her 11 year old son Robert to go to church. "When he was dressed, we took him to a mirror and showed him what he looked like. He just gasped, he was so pleased with his appearance." Mak's new brothers ·and sisters are James, six months; Peter, one and a half; Barbara, two; Carolyn, four; Rosemary, five; Donna, six; Susan, eight; Robert, 11, and Lorraine, 16. Another brother, Edward, 19, is in the Army, stationed at Ft. Dix, N. J. Legally, the little Korean will be known as Mak Isidore Caron. Isidore is his baptismal name, given him by the Sisters in Korea. Mak is Eurasian, explained Edward-half American and half Korean. "We wanted a Eurasian child because -neither the Koreans nor many Americans want such youngsters." . A Few Marbles "Also, we wanted to give another Korean' a chance at a place in Mak's orphanage. There are so many homeless children in Korea that the orphanages can't accommodate them all-so when one child leaves a shelter, it means that another can be taken

In.''

Mak looks well-nourished and is in good health, a tribute to the care 'he received from the Sisters at his orphanage. 'He can't seem to get enough milk, . .though," said Beatrice. "He' drinks glass after glass." She said he arrived with no luggage at all, just the clothes on his back '~and six marbles, two balloons and. two toy cars in his pockets." Beatrice and Edward Caron, soft-spoken and relaxed in the midst of their active brood, aren't the least dismayed at adding number 11 to the family. "We spend between $50 and $60 a week on food," said Beatrice. Weekly consumption of milk runs to 60 quarts and 20 loaves of bread are used for sandwiches, breakfast toast, and the snacks and nibbles beloved of growing children. Fifty pounds of potatoes disappear every two weeks. Edward and Beatrice,are good managers, however. Edward himself built the family's neat and cozy home at 27 Maplewood Avenue, directly across the street from the South Swansea. postoffice where· he has been. postmaster 14 years. Some of the children attend St. Michael's parochial school' and some the nearby public school, while Lorraine is a junior at Mt. St. Mary Academy in Fall River. Mak won't go to school until he's picked up a bit of English. In Korea he completed two grades, but the Carons don't know as yet where he'll be plaCed in school here.

Vatican TV Show NEW YORK (NC - A one hour television documentary on Vatican City is being prepared by the American Br~adcasting Comp~ny for showing on Easter, April 14. The program will tell the Vatican's story through the lives of people who live and work there. It will be shown as part of ABC's "Bell and Howell Close-Up" series.

What has been the reaction of friends and neighbors to the Carons' new son? "When we told peOple what we were going to do, most said God would bless us, but some thought we were crazy," said Edward. " 'Ten children, and you want more!' they'd say."

Moral Obligation ''We look at it this way, though-we're trying to follow Our Lord's ·teaching, 'Suffer the little children to come to Me.'

What we do for youngste1'9 \b done for Him. Also we read io St. James' epistle that we havo a moral obligation to care foli' orphans-and St. Paul tells, ua that we must love our neighboi' -so .we feel we have lots a1 Quthority for what we're doing." The Carons are the first family in the Fall River Diocese to adopt a Korean youngster. They hope they will not be the last.

'Advises Adults M-inim,ize War Fear for Sake of Childrer. By Mary Tinley Daly

Dea:.: . Mrs. Daly: What do you think of a teacher who scares children half out of their wits? Our George, eight years old, came home in absolute terror, saying "Teacher said we'd all be dead in two weeks anyhow, so why bother with homework." He couldn't eat his dinner, had nightmares and years my father was overseas. I listen to the radio (it was has been. asking over and would before the days of TV) and over again, "Is it true that would become terrified at what we're all going to be killed?" My husband 'and I have tried to reassure the boy but it does no good. I spoke to the teacher and she said that George had exaggerated the whole thing. She admitted that she had been extremely nervous aft e r the announcement of the blockade of Cuba and "perhaps it was reflected" in :ler attitude toward the children. Don't they teach teachers to keep control of themselves and not let their emotions color the lives of the children in their charge? Mrs. R.B.H. Dear Mrs. R.B.H.: You are right. Teachers have DO right unduly to upset their charges and undoubtedly the teacher in question did reflect her nervousness. She may 'Oll' may not have used the words your son reported, but he got 'the gist of what she was feeling.

The Pontiff speaking at 11 general audience explained why persons visiting here cannot be allowed to attend Council SellDions. He said: "It is not a matter of the laity not entering into the things of the Church. On the contrary, it is for them that these meetings are being held, because it is a question of bringing the substance of Christianity more into conformity with the grace of Christ." Only bishops and other autho rized persons are admitted to Council sessions, he said, because "everything must be done in good order" and because the bishops are the custodians of the Christian truths which 8r<il under discussion.

By Most Rev. Robert J., Dwyer, D. D. Bishop of Reno

Have you ever noticed 'the gesture of the priest at the' Hane Igitur of the Mass, which immediately precedes the Consecration? The celebrant extends his hands 'over chalice at this moment. It recalls' a similar gesture that was used in the Old Testament, which prophetically referred to the Sacrifice of Our Lord. In the Book of Leviticus we read: "The man who would win the Lord's favor with burnt sacrifice of cattle must bring a male beaSt, without blemish, to the door of the tabernacle, and lay his hand on the beast's head, and SO it will be accepted, and will serve to make atonement for him."

There is no other Saviour for sin than Our Lord; only a God Who became Man 'and took upon Himself their sins oan· open .Heaven to them. If you rejoice in the Redemption which you have, why not make sacrifices to give it to Asia, Africa,. Latin America? The Directors of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith throughout the United States, who are the Holy Father's own representa-.

They, in turn, will deliver them to the Pontiff that the peoples of these continents may lay their handa upon the Cross of Christ and thus be saved.

Church's Future In Latin America Rests with La ity

15

SAN JUAN (NC) - Catechetical teaching looms large in the future of the Church in Latin America, a papal diplomat asserted here in Puerto Rico. Archbishop Emanuele Clarizio, Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic whose jurisdiction extends to Puerto Rico, told the annual Confraternity of Christian Doctrine here: "The Church is in danger in Latin America due to the lack of religious instruction. Will they be truly Catholic or will the Church lose them forever? It depends on catechetical teaching." A total of 864 delegates attended the convention in Our Lady of Guadalupe parish here. 'Fundamental Importance' A message from Archbishop James P. Davis of San Juan, who is in Rome attending the Second Vatican Council, asserted that the future of the' Church in Latin America is in the hands of the laity. He stressed the ''fundamental importance" of the apostolate of the laity, "the apostleship more intimately joined with' the mission of the Church, which is the continuation of Christ our Redeemer's mission."

This, of course" han been a serious drawback in the development of that kind of climate of mutual respect, let alonn fur unity." , "Anglicanism," he stressed., stands midway between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism, so our eoncern lies in two directions. Rev. Mr. Samuelson' said he believes the· most: effective patli to unity is througJi the method. of mass eonversions. Father Gallagher said the Catholic Church eould advance the cause of unity by revamping its sYstem of teaching theology in seminaries so as to include a course in the fundamental tea~ ings of other churches, and by spelling out more clearly the essential nature of the Church, especially in relation to, the pope and the. bishops. J::>oge's' Role "The' w,hole question of authority; in, the Churcn can be, properly; appreciated," he said, "if the pope's role is.looked upon as a primacy: of. serVice; a9 an authority; not simply; ov.er the' Church, but in the' Church, Christ's institution: of an S!'b~ trator and mediator in the· service of unity." "Our call for' unity,". Father Gallagher asserted, "is to removo any obscurity, to make truth and practice so clear that we will invite recognition, not submission."

Yes, Father A;P., there are many ways of seeing. First with our eyes. For some with the fingers. And a third way. Seeing with the heart.

NEW YORK (NC)-A priest- . editor said here that the "very personal religion" practiced by many Catholics is obscuring their spiritual obligation to help transform the world. "Our people by and large do not see any social implications in their religion," declared Father Albert J. Nevins, M.M., 'editor of Maryknoll magazine. He spoke at the Peace Award luncheon of the Catholic Association for International Peace. In his speech, Father Nevins stressed the following three points: The apathy of the American p e 0 pIe, including Catholics, toward main issues, largely because of their materialistic outlook. The failure of many Catholics to recognize that they must assist mankind as a whole. The need for Ca'tholic leadership to formulate programs emphasizing the responsibility Catholics have toward their fellow men. 'Spiritual Midgets' "While we have become a nation of technological giants," Father Nevins said, "we are also rapidly becoming a nation of spiritual midgets . . . We have become smug, fat, rich and spiritually flabby. Our scale of values ia structured on material comforts and not, as it should be, on the spiritual."

FORT MYERS BEACH (NC) Father Miguel Goni is a seagoing priest who commutes each Sunday by boat to offer Mass in his new 'ission. Father Goni, administrator of Ascension parish here in Florida, inaugurated Masses on Sanibel Island and found himself with a transportation problem. Since he celebrates Masses at 7:30 and 9:30 in Ascension church and must be on Sanibel Island at 11, he accepted the invitation of a local family to make the trip in their motor launch. Eight minutes is the best time in which Father Goni, a native of Spain, has made the crossing with 12-year-old Patrick Blaney as skipper.

Malik, on the need for a "spIritual offensive" to "put the material in its place," the Maryknoll priest stated: "Yet any spiritual offensive would be greatly handicapped by the very personal religion practiced by so many of our Catholic people." "Our people by and large do not see any social implications in their religion," he continued. "Our children are still being taught that the most important thing is the salvation of their individual souls ... In today's compressed world, men must relearn the truth the Church' has always' taught: The doctrine of human interdependence is based on the Christian brotherhood of man under the Fatherhood of God,"

Conley, who has taken leave of absence from a post at Marquette University, Milwaukee, to direct the study which has headquarters at Notre Dame University, said that the right of parents to choose freely and without financial penalty the schools they want for their chll. dren is as sacred a right as any in the Constitution.

The . families - two Polish, two Yugoslav and one Hungarian - arrived at the airport here after a trip financed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. The families, sponsored by the Catholic Immigration Committee here, are staying in hostels of the St. Vincent de Paul Society until they get settled in new homes and jobs. James R. Gaynor, chairman of the Catholic Immigration Committee and national president of the S1. Vincent de Paul Society, welcomed the families when they arrived. He said that some of them had been lingering for years in refugee camps because of physical disabilities caused by wartime privations and ill- treatment. Among those who at'rived were a Hungarian widow, Mrs. H. Veres-Klement, and her two children, Ferenc, 17, and GizeIla, 16: The father of the family,' a taIlor, has not been seen since he was taken for police questioning on the night of Dec. 16, 1946.

The Archbishop ~:aid that, because of this practice, "in certain regions of India some local customs of the people have been ,added to the existing liturgical rite.
