President Kennedy's proposal of Federal aid to public elementary secondary schools only set off a controversy with Catholic leaders seeking long term, low interest U. S. loans for nonpublie schools. James Francis Cardinal McIntyre in Los Angeles charged U.S. discrimination against Cub a n refugees by failure to include finandal aid for Catholic schools their children attend. Requests for 270 lay missioners came from eight countries as 50 U. S. Sees named directors for the Papal Volunteers for Latin America (PAVLA).

secuted throughout the. w;;rld. The U. S. Bishops approved the following special prayer to be recited at services in connection with the observance. The text of the prayer follows: "Lord Jesus Christ, who chose 110 become an exile from Your

Heavenly Home that we, the exiled children of Eve, might not be banished forever from Your Father's Face; You who as an infant in Your Mother's arms, fled into a strange land to escape the tyrant who sought Your life, we beg You to look with compassion upon the multitudes of men, women and children in our oWn day who have been forced by other tyrants as cruel as Herod to seek refuge far from their homelands. "You who were rejected by those You had come to save, who knew poverty and privation throughout Your life on earth, who suffered monstrous injustice at the hands of Your enemies, who endured the abandonment tlnd desolation of Your last hours on the Cross, we beseech You to open Your Wounded Heart and Deceive therein the millions of Your own followers and friends whose faith in You has brought Upon them the evils of oppression and ill-treatment in many :llorms and degrees. "You, Our Lord and Saviour, who died to give us the glorious freedom of the sons of God, comIort with divine hope all those who are now deprived of their lauman rights, thelJ: liberty and security, their homes and famBies, above aU the opportunity to enjoy freely and without fear the supreme blessings of their boly faith. "Inspire in us who have never suffered these great misfortunes an ever-increasing spirit of . Charity toward our persecuted brethrert throughout the world, 80 that, out ~f our own spiri~ual resources, our heritage of religious and political freedom, our material substance, we may do more and more to brighten their night of exile, to lighten their burdens, to strengthen them in vatient£hope until the day when; God willing and helping, they also may know again the joy of the peace that You brought to this . .. world."

Papal Bull . Pope John' has solemnly signed the Papal Bull calling forth an ecumenical Council of the Church sometime next year.. This is a significant event in the twenty-centuries old life of the Social Body 9f Christ. . , The chief purpose of the Council will be, of course, to make the unity of the Church of Christ evident and attractive to those not of the Faith. Misunderstandings will be . clarified so that those who do not "speak the language" of ,Catholic creed and code and cult will know, in twentieth century language, what Catholics hold and believe. A beginning has been made. The daily newspapers and weekly news magazines, radio and' television-all have been showing a great interest in the forthcoming Council. Indeed, the feeling is that these news media have shown a greater enthusiasm than many Catholics for whom this is an important event. Of course, the twenty-first General Council in two thousand years is somewhat more significant than a yearly World Series so the news channels should be interested in covering it. And many Catholics are perhaps apathetic toward the Council because they .feel, with justification, that they possess the truth and there can be no essential changes in their way of life rising from what the Council may say or do. What they do not realize 'is that their Faith will be revivified by the Council, and the interest of their non-Catholic brothers so stirred that many' will look to Catholics-all Catholics and every Catholic and any Catholic , -for information and inspiration. Here is where Catholics must do their share to present the Faith with clarity and' all the beauty 'of its truth. And, more importantly, to live that Faith in the same way in their own lives. It matters little for the Fathers .of the Council to spread before the world in glowing terms the riches of the Catholic Faith if individual Catholics are seen ignoring those riches, and if whole Catholic communities are living lives at odds· with what is .being preached~ Catholics must take the forthcoming Council as seriously as do the news media. Concern for souls-their own and -those of their brothers-should be at least as ~trong . a motive as satisfying curiosity about news.

§ngmm The crises and tensions set forth in the year-end reviews are calculated to leave even the most casual and lightheaded reader in a sober mood. And they' seem to stand as a preview of more of the same to come in the year ahead. . That is why it is most heartening to read the Pope'B Christmas message and to catch some of his spirit ()f calm assurance in the midst of the fears and troubles ()f the world that Pope John understands so very well. . One paragraph stands out in this regard: !'We cannot believe that the terrible energy now under control of man will be },'eleased for the world's destruction. For side by side with elements of fear and apprehension, there are positive signs of good will that is constructive and productive of good." It is good that the Holy Father has chosen 'to underline the "positive signs of good will" in the world. It would be very easy for men to become discour~ged or cynical other"" wise. And negative attitudes are productive of nothing but .their like. So it must be recognized that there are millions of men and women in the world striving, more than at any other time, for peace with justice. There is charity in the world, "'as evidenced in the willingness to give means and services 'to help brothers in need. The various charity drives and Peace Corps volunteers and Church lay missioners give eloquent testimony to this. There is a strong desire for unity among Christians that is driving men to sit down and discuss religious differences where before there was only the m~thod of standing up and out-shouting one another. In several areas of the world, whole social structures are undergoing revision, replacing with responsibility, and equality older political and cultural forms' and customs. Such "positive signs of good will" cannot be unproductive of good. Good will generates enthusiasm and trust and hope, and ~nspires other men to dare to attempt whaft otherwise they would be content to let go by default. And the heavenly promise to men of good will is peace.

TODAY-Holy Innocents, Martyrs. As if He could not wait to share our sorrows, to experience the full ti:agic reality of the human situation He had chosen, our Lord becomes the subject .of . human tyranny and injustice even as an Infant. He is like us in all things except· sin. So this celebration of the slain innocents brings before the Christian mind another facet, another aspect, of the Incarnation. He who has come and will come again as our judge is fully human as well as fully divine. We meet nQ stranger but rather one of our own.


TOMORROW-Third Mass of 'Christmas Day-Scripture ReadingS of Second Mass. It isn't that this world of ours has divinized itself, has lifted itself up by its own bootstraps. "Not by reason of good works that we did ourselves, but· according to His mercy" (Epistle). It is God who 'has made this totally unique "break-through." He has broken through our shell of self-sufficiency, our shell cif separation, our shell' of independl!nce, and restored to us what we had lost by sin. SATURDAY - Third Mass '01 Christmas Day-Scripture Readings of Second Mass. Because the Son of God is now the Son ()f Man, all sons of men may now be sons of God-and without ceasing to be sons of men, to Pe fully human-this is tlHl point of the Incarnation. The old iron curtains between matter and spirit, between the temporal and the eternal, between this world and the next, melt in the white hot. glare of God's love ma'de visible and tangible to the human race.

SUNDAY WITHIN THIE OCTAVIE OlF CHlIUSTMAS. Simeon said that Jesus was a "sign" (Gospel). So'He is, the greatest of all signs, the great Sacrament of God's 'love:-this divine Person whose human nature gave visible radiance to the nature of God which was also His. The liturgy we celebrate today is a liturgy of liberation-from slavery to sonship-because He was "born of a woman." He uses signs (sacraments) to communicate with us, tQ act upon us, to accomplish in us that transfor· mation of which tlHl Epistle speaks.

mas. The Church celebrates the blessing the whole world has received in the coming in the flesh of God's Son. For the Incarnation means that God has gathered this broken and scarred earth into His arms and has given,it the kiss of peace. The obvious joy and gaiety of our public worship in this season has nothing to do with the sentimental warming - of - heart prompted by the sight of a baby. It is rather because in place of all the futility, the uncertainty, the darkness of a life without Christ, now a pattern emerges and the desert becomes a highway. TUESDAY-The Holy Name of Jesus. The pattern' and the highway are Jesus, whose name for this reason receives the veneration of Christians everywhere. A name is a personal thing. And the holy Name of Jesus marks Christianity forever as a personal religion, as a religion of personal discipleship. To think of it· as a series of propositions, no matter how sound, is to do the Christian religion a great disservice. WEDNESDAY - Mass all OIl January 1. Wp,at better time could there be, then, for the beginning of a new' civil year than this season of rejoicing in the new life of grace, the new sense of direction God has given us and the new meaning of life He has shown us in the coming of His Son? For in this birth time, too, finds meaning and dignity. Time is no longer a mere purposeless cycle, a mere ticking off of days, weeks, months. Time is the space given us for entering into the Mystery of' ChI'ist, and it moves inexorably toward His coming in glory.

double taxation that plagues Catholic parents, a Canadian bishop said here. Bishop Bruno Desrochers of Sainte-Anne-de-Ia-Pocatiere di'acese in Quebec said "there IS no difficulty at all," in the Canadian school system. "Our Catholic schools are public schools," he stated. "Religion, recognized by the government, is taught two hours a week during regular class hours." Non-Catholics who must attend Catholic schools, he continued, don't have to study religion. And the same is true for Catholics attending Protestant schools. The Bishop said the system is administered by the Council of Public Instruction for the Que~ bec province. It is composed of a Catholic committee and a Protestant one, He said he believes the establishment of a "neutral committee" in addition to the Catholie and Protestant education committees would make the system workable in the U. S. Quebec already is considering the addition of such a committee there, he stated.

Urges Catholics Play Active .Role In Civic Life

Catholic Events •• April, 1961

ST. LOUIS (NC) - It is "not intelligent" to work against the public school system on the ground that it fails to teach religion, Joseph

Cardinal Ritter said here. The Archbishop of St. Louis said Catholics should play • greater part in civic activities and also help promote the good of public schools as well as their own. "Among the good things of the community, there must be good schools," he told the St. Louis Archdiocesan' Council of Catholie Women's board of directors. "We would like to see religion in those schools, but we must not stand off until religion is included as a part of the curriculum. It may never come in our day." Il"ersonal mtenoest

While Catholic lay men and women "cannot commit their parishes, as individuals they can and should take a personal interest in civic projects," he said. Acknowledging that many civic undertakings are controversial in nature, the Cardinal advised the lay women not to shun a project merely because it is controversial. "Don't be afraid of these situations, as long as they are not on doctrinal grounds," he said. "Participate in them, if they are merited by your study and observation."

Arrange Regional Fair for Schools High Schools of the Diocese will participate with public schools in the first Qreater Fall River Regional Science Fair, open to students in grade seven through 12, and scheduled to take place the weekend of March 24 at the Dwelly Street Armory, Fall River. Rev. Patrick O'Neill, acting superintendent of schools, will be coordinator for Catholic school participation in the event. Students from Attleboro, Dighton, Swansea, Somerset and Fall River will be eligible to enter exhibits. Winners will enter a New England' science fair. The Greater Fall River Fair has as organizers Dr. Harry Levine, president; Dr. Kenneth Shand, vice president; Robert Murray, treasurer; Sister Pauline, O.P., secretary; Roger H. Dubois, assistant secretary. An open planning meeting will be held at 8 Thursday night, Jan. 4 at Dominican Academy, Fall River. All interested adults are mvited to attend.

Asks Catholics Lead Racial Justice Fight TOLEDO (NC) - Catholics should be leading the fight for interracial justice, but by and large they have failed to do so, a leader in the interracial movement said here. Lloyd Davis, president of the National Association of Intergroup Relations Officials, blamed lack of understanding of the issues, "an excessive caution disguised as prudence" and "failure to relate doctrine to the practices of everyday life" for Catholic deficiencies in this field. Deploring the "gradualist crawling race toward interracial justice," Davis declared that for Catholics "nothing short of a total commitment" to ending racism can be squared with their religious beliefs.

Feehan Squires Bishop Feehan Circle, Columbian Squires of Fall River, will make a pilgrimage to LaSalette Shrine, Attleboro, Thursday, Jan. 4.

u. S. Catholic population was recorded at 42,104,900, a year's gain of 1,233,548,. by the 1961 Official Catholic Directory. In his Easter message Pope John told the world that despite persecution, bloodshed and tribulations Christ will triumph. Violence broke out in the Dominican Republic when' demands that Gen. Rafael Trujillo be named "Protector of the Church" were ignored by the Bishops. Death claimed: Father Robert J. Slavin, O.P., 54, president of Providence College. Judge L. Fritz Gordon of Dade County (Fla.) Circuit Court ruled Bible reading and recita'tion of the Lord's Prayer in public schools do not violate the U. S. or Florida Constitutions.

Be Happy in Christ

Biography of Pope Leo XIII· 'Marred by Inaccura(yl1

God Love You By Most Rev. Fulton J. Sheen, D. D. How different are our times from those of Bethlehem! Theil the whole world was expecting God to ~come man; now the mood is one of man eX})ecting man·tO become God. Then both Jew and Gentile looked forward to redemption; today; except f\or the loyal followers of Christ, hearls are yearning not for salvation but· for prosperity. The star in the East to which deluded men now look Is the Soviet star, which once again promises, lUI did satan: "You will:be like unto gods."

By Rt. Rev. Msgr. John S. Kennedy. Leo XIII; one of the greatest of the popes, has been dead for 58 years. Yet no biography of him has been published in the United States 'since the year. of his death, and that one was a translation, not an original work. Brother William Kiefer,· S.M., has abuses; he also spoke and acted undertaken to supply the to effect a radical reordering of lack with a book called Leo thought and practice which XIII: A Light from Heaven would bring the affairs of men (Bruce. $3.95). His is a curious production. He has been handicapped, obviously, by the inaccessibility of the Vatican archives on Leo's pontificate. And· he. admits he has leaned very heavily on the 58 _ year - old book referred - to ab9ve. The result is an account which is not critical in the best sense, but seems more a eulogy than an incisive study. Leo XU was born in 1810 and christened .Vi n c e n t Joachim Raphael Louis Pecci; the sixth of seven children of Count Louis Pecci and his wife Anna. He wsa close throughout life to his older brother Joseph (whom, whet! pope, he made a cardinal), and the two began school togetheJ." at Viterbo. Their teachers we~ Jesuits, whose ranks Joseph waS later to join. Brilliant Student In 1825 young Joachim entered the Gregorian f University in Rome where he made a brilliant showi~g. He went on ,from the classics to philosophy, then to theology. . At 23 he was admitted to the Academy for Noble Ecclesiastics and at the Sapienza University took degrees in law, canon and civil' Before ordination he was made a domestic prelate and assigned a post in the government of the Papal States. Raised to the priesthood at the end of 1837, Monsignor Pecci was appointed civil governor of the Province of Benevento. Less than four years later he was shifted to a similar, position in Perugia. Hardly two years thereafter he became papal nuncio to Brussels. In another two years he was named Bishop ofPerugia. Thus, within eight years of ordination he had held two difficult political offices, served as head of an important diplomatic mission, and been assigned a diocese. A variety of experience was acquired in short order. Reigns 25 Years His incumbency as ordinary of the diocese of Perugia wils to last for 33 years. In the course of . it he became a cardinal, and his fame as a churchman, administrator, Jntellectual swelled. These were stormy times for the Church, with. Perugia wrested from the Papal States and persecution of religion introduced there. In his own diocese Cardinal Pecci had to deal wi th the tides; trends, and problems which made all Europe restive and explosive at. this time. When Pius IX died in 1878; Pecci was 68 years old, a fraillooking man. He was elected to the papacy, which was not a sur,prise but the surmise was that his reign would not be very long. It was in fact, to last %5 years. Soeial RefOl'DlS Both momentous and memorable, it saw vigorous growth within the Church and the achievement of a mOdus vivendi with forces supposedly ineompatible with her. Leo XIll had a discerning eye for the root eviJa of "the time, errors which 'have borne their bitterest fruit in our own da1'communism, for one. But be did more than decl"J' sophistrJ' and

into accord with objective truth and unchanging principle. His blueprint for social reform is a case in point. His encyclicals are a treasure house of Christian . wisdom, as pertinent to our age as to his. Encyclicals ·Analyzed These encyclicals the author analyzes at some length. And be details little remembered concerns of the pontificate--pointing out, for example, LeO's interest and practical success in bringing Eastern and Western Christians closer together. He also sprinkles about lPlecdotes which indicate the temperament of this illustrious but sbarptongued successor ·of Peter. A fault of the book is exemplified in this matter of anecdotes. There is one, related· on page 192, which if it occurred in Leo'a ease, was an exact repetition of something said and done by Pius IX.



The author's authority for attribution of the story to Leo is as follows: "This story was given to the author by a priest friend who heard it while in Rome." That hardly seems sufficient grounds. The book is weak in documentation. Glaring Errors It is also marred by inaccuracy. On the very first page of the intrOduction, the name of the present bishop of Cleveland is mispelled, and. this is all too indicative of what is to follow. "Piazza de Spagna" is used 'instead o.f "Piazza di Spagna,"and "Viva Papa" instead of ''Viva il Papa." "'Manna and God' would not, could not, be served by the Pope," says the author, when, surely, he means Mammon and God. Pope John XXIII's encyclical is styled "Mater et Magister" and not, as it should' be, "Mater e' Magistra." And so on. The errors are many and glaring. Needs Pruning; Research There are, as w!'lll, 'some jarring infelicities of style, and even grammatical lapses. We are told that "the conditions of religion in Russia and the East in general was anything but desirable." It is said of the American hierarchy that they "had two strikes against them." "The Vatican CQuncil, which had read of his work, knew his worth also" is certainly a clumsy expression of an improbability -now a council reads of anything or anyone, it is impossible to say. The text, then, should have been rigorously pruned and pointed, so as to rid it of imprecision and awkwardness. And for a penetrating portrayal of the pontiff and hiS reign: much more research is required.

Air Force Chaplains On Special Retreat SAN ANTONIO (NC)-riftytwo chaplains of the southwestern region attended a special retreat for Air Force chaplains at St. Joseph's Retreat House here. The,four-day retreat was con- . ducted by Father Francis Kilday, O.M.I. Air Force chaplains attend four retreats a ,.ear under a· program devised by Magr. (Maj. Gen.) Terence P. Finnegall, Chief of Ail' Foree ehaplaina.

It must not be thought, however, t.'bat an evR is on one side of the Iron Curtain and all goodness is on the other. Good and bad 8ft mixed as they were in Sodom and Gomorrah, as they will be at the Last Judgment. The point is this: the issues are now becoming clearer than they ever were, before. The struggle is between the forces of the GodMan who is Christ and the man-god who is Antichrist.

Catholic Events •• July, 1961 Pope John issued his Mater et Magistra social encyclical which drew worldwide praise from leaders in all walks of life.

Catholics in Moscow, Rus~ sia, succeeding Father LouiS A. Dion, A.A. A survey showed there are 120 U. S. Negro priests. K. of C. Headquarters in New Haven, Conn., reported there are 1,143,714 members.

Straight ahead of the entrance, on the far wall, is a large painting of the Madonna and Child, and overhead are new crystal chandeliers. Everything in Marian Manor is planned to accommodate its future residents and the Dominican Sisters, who will staff it. 'with this in mind, an intercommunication system which can contact rooms separately or all rooms together is installed. It is also a record system, enabling prayers or music to be, heard throughout the, building. Safety Precautions For safety, the home is completely sprinklered, and an allnew heating system now exists 611 the first floor and basement, where there had previously, been no sleeping quarters. The sprinkler system is connected with the city fire station so that when set off it will alert it immediately. On the wall near the main desk in the Marian Manor lobby are lights for each section of the, building so ,that firemen can immediately place the location of any fire. At Uie rear of the lobby, the original elevator remains, and a Second elevalor with double entrances has been installed across the corridor.
