By Joseph T. McGloin, S. J. . It was once my privilege to work with a great group ef kids in Denver. Among other wonderful things they did, they used to go into the poorest of the poor homes almost every Saturday, and scrub and patch and clean and cook and, in general,work their heads off. When this project only place he can ever find com­ bad been going on a few plete satisfaction is in God, not in something God gave him as a weeks, I asked one of the stepping stone.

boys to give a talk. about it at the Sodality Council meeting. With no time to prepare himself and with no prompting from me, he stood up and said, at the beginning of his little talk, "This is the greatest Sodality project we have at­ -tempted. But if you're not go­ ing to do it for the sake of Christ, then you'd better not try to do it at all. You can't do it unless you do it for Him." Tremendous Ideals A few years before, that would have surprised me, but not at the time since you can't worK' long with kids without realizing that they have the most tremen­ dous ideals and thoughts, but that they are oflen afraid to ex­ press them lest they be thought "pious" or some such horror as that. , And this boy, in his straight­ forward way, had hit on the pro­ foundest of truths - that there are many things we simply can't do unless we do them for Christ. You could also add that if we had any sense we'd be doing everything for Christ and not just the hard things. Only One Purpose We hear so much about "the separation of Church and state­ today, and it often goes to .such silly extremes that we begm to think sometimes that our reli­ Ilion is an all-permeating thing, and our purpose in life is not just to stop now and then to think of God so much as to live our entire lives for Him. We have only one purpose, not many. We are to get to God, and that's all of it. And so, you and I cannot be partial successes or partial failures, but only 100 per cent successes or 100 per cent failures. Get to God and you will have succeded. Fail to get to Him and you will be an utter, eomplete 100 per cent flop. What Sin Is Not only that, but look into the problems you encounter in this life, and you are going to find that from 99 per cent to 100 per cent of them come from our losing sight of the fact that our purpose is not material or this-worldly at all, but some­ thing supernatural for which everything in this world is just ';1 means at best. Another way of putting this would be to say that when we encounter difficulties in this life, it is because we try to use some creature within our horizons-­ which can only be the means to our final purpose-as an end in itself. This is, in fact, what a sin is­ using a creature as an end in it- . self instead of as a means. It is looking for satisfaction in some­ thing which can never satisfy _ human being anyhow, since the

Live Morning Offering We are not here, then, just to look up to God every morning when we rise, and. every night when we retire, and at Mass on Sunday, and then go live our practical lives. No, our purpose conforms more to what we say each morning in the Morning Offering: "I offer you my prayers, works, and sufferings of this day * * *" But our lives do not consist either in only saying a prayer such as the Morning Offering and then going our unthinking way. No, we are to live that Morning Offering as well as re­ cite it. If you pick up a well-written life of a saint you will find that a saint is not primarily a miracle worker (though he needs Q cou­ ple to qualify for canonization), but· rather someone who does God's will very well indeed. He is one who lives for God. Serve Others You'll find, too, that if you look deeply enough into what you are supposed to be_ doing here on this earth in thj.s: ~uest for God,You are not 'going to be able to do the job as an iso­ lated and insulated being. No, you're going to have to do it in relationship with some others, maybe only a few others, maybe many others. You will not be able to serve God in fact, unless you some­ how' manage to serve others in His Name. It still remains true that Christ has told us, in no un­ certain terms, that if we claim to love Him and don't love our neighbor, we are nothing but liars. And He bas said that He' is going to consider everything we do or do not do to others as done to Himself. So - neglect others and you neglect Christ; hurt others and you hurt Christ; love others (an<~ be sure you know what that little word really means) and you love Christ. As to Christ But just go around shooting off your mouth about how much you love others when the only one you really love is yourself, and you don't love Christ at all. A lot of crimes are committed today, unfortunately, in the name of love, when it's really more a matter of selfish self­ love. So we have to tum to others -not, indeed, as the nobility be­ stowing a favor on our inferiors, but as to Christ, no matter what disguise Christ may be wearing at the time. It is my own contention that, as a group, teens are doing more in this line than any other group. It is also my contention that the teens of today are doing at least as good a job of this as any other generation.

Prelate predicts Expanded Ro'e For Catholic 'Welfare Conference WASHINGTON (NC) - .An expanded role for the National Catholic Welfare Conference in fostering the social mission of the Church was predicted here at the episcopal consecration of the NCWC's secretary general, the Most Rev; Paul F. Tanner. Archbishop Karl J. Alter of. Cincinnati, expressing the "pro­ found indebtedness" of the U.S. hierarchy to Bishop Tanner, said "an ever widening area of action will open up for the NCWC." He predicted an expanded role for the conference in the future, "particularly • • • in respect to the expanded concept of the bishops' collegiate responsibili­ ty." "In the inevitable reorganiza­ tion of our own national con­ ference, the office of general secretary will assume a role of major importance," he said. "The fact that the present incumbent now enjoys episcopal status will greatly facilitate· his effective cooperation in· the development of the new program."

Since the Council of Trent, Archbishop Alter said, "the Church has stood on the defen­ sive; it was like a city that was besieged or a country that was invaded." .The Second Vatican Council, he continued, "has changed much of this siege attitude.To­ day the Church no longer immobilized, no longer static, no longer hesitant and with.,. drawn in its confrontation with the modem world. "It speaks once more with assurance, confident that its message is relevent to the tem­ poral order and a source of manifold benefits to all man­ kind."

Diidogue With Catholics The executive secretary of the St. ~uts Archdioe­ esan Commission on Human Rights has made a most sensible and necessary suggestion, that Catholics should engage in "more dialogue with ourselves." The secretary, Father Francis M. Doyle, cited the "unheard-of" gains in interreligious relations in the past quarter eentury but commented: "While aU this is going

en, I sometimes wonder if we are not moving farther away from one another." It is tr~e that a Catholic can feel a great sense of pride in reading articles in Cath6Ilc newspapers and pel'­

iodicals that show a' w~mderful degree of kindness and llnderstanding toward those who are not Catholic. It is likewise inspirational to witness' Catholics and non-Cath':' olics working in close harmo.ny on joint projects. And all this makes for a ·greater degree of shock to observe

at times the lack of charity of' Catholic toward Catho­ lic, the name-calling that goes on in many periodicals and newspapers, the hostility of "new breed" -toward "old breed," of "progressive" toward "conservative,"

This should not be. lt would be a sad spectacle if the· old bitterness toward non-Catholics, now happily changing, were not to disappear completely but would be dir4~cted toward

those "of the household of the faith," as St. Paul called

his fellow-Catholics. Dialogue with non-Catholics is good and needed. Di­ alogue of Catholics with Catholics must likewise exhibit the same charity and spirit of understanding.

Still Decreasing The annual Gallup poll on church attendance through­ out the nation has once more been released and once again it indicates that regular' church attendance is still on the decrease. Ten years ago, forty-nine per cent of adults ques­ tioned indicated that they attended church regularly. At­ tendance in 1964 dropped to forty-five per cent. ~1id the latest survey shows that forty-four per cent of acltifts at­ tended some church regularly in this year of 1965. An affluent society like that in. the United States does nothing to foster regular church attendance. People have too much and are too immersed in things to bother much with the spirit. Indeed, either they never think of °it or see no need for religion. Religion, any religion, usually makes demands on a person, talks of such difficult things' as self-control and sacrifice, and these concepts are fast disappearing from the contemporary scene. There will be a reaction some day, true, but in the meantime neglect of God and the spirit continues..

A,nother Matter Students of the University of California have elect­ ed to their Campus Rules Committee a young lady who acknowledged, before the election, that she has been a Communist for the last three years. She proved to be the leading vote-getter among the seven under-graduates running for three positions on the committee. Unfortunately, only 5,900 students out ~f the 27,000 students on campus voted. The election also was held un­ der a complex representational system that did not pro­ vide conventional voting totals. But the fact remains that this individual was chosen and was the top vote-getter. Which shows that people have a right to chose any­ one they wish to represent them and to be their spokes­ man. They also must live with the consequences of t~eir action, too. And this may prove to be another and far different matter entirely.

''The Swiss federal 'govern",: ment is convinced that the same agreement will prevail in Switz­ erland. But the people of Switz­ erland like to found their de­ cisions on their own convictions and in harmony with the exigencies of their own country. We sincerely hope that when the various groups will have ex­ pressed their positive opinion on the matter, the people them­ selves will decide to eliminate the o.ply-vestige remaining of the sad events in 1847."

DePaul to Teach World Missions CHICAGO (NC) DePaul University here will offer a course on the major religion's of the world beginning Feb. 7, 1966. Father Robert Campbell, O.P., who will conduct the course, said it is part of DePaul's "Program for Greatness," one aspect of which calls for deepening mutu­ al respect for religious beliefs of others and increased familiarity with non-Western cultures. . The course will feature study and discussion of Protestant, Greek Orthopox, Christian Sci­ ence, Moslem, Jewish Orthodox and RefOrmed, Buddhist, Hindu and Mormon faiths. Prominent leaders from each of these religions will be guest lecturers each week, with themes eoncentrating on the meaning of life and death, of moral good happiness, suffering and the sence of man.

BERLIN (NC) - Archbishop , Alfred Bengsch of the diocese of Berlin was bitterly criticized by the official East German communist party .newspaper ~eues Deutschland because he signed a eonciliatory letter sent by the bishops of Germany to the Catholic hierarchy in Po­ land. The editorial said the arch­ bishop, whose residence is in East Berlin but whose diocese includes the western part of the city, "acted against the peace efforts of the (East German) nation . . ." Noting that nearly all the bis­ hopa who signed the letter are from West Germany, the news­ paper eoncluded that the letter waS a "political gesture" and that the bishops had involved themselves in a "very curious situation."

"Rare indeed," said Father White, "is the person who uses his automobile as a weapon for intentional killing or maiming of himself or others. , "But all too many people by their careless, negligent and reckless driving jeopardize not only their own lives but the lives, safety and property of others," he said.

"What they fail to realize is that the moral principles requir­ ing care and respect for life and property apply as much to the operation of motor vehicles as they do to other areas of human conduct." In recent years the Catholic Church has called attention to possible serious violation of the fifth and seventh commandments as a result of negligent driving and recklessness on the high­ ways, Father White reminded.

Represents Pope At Anniversary Of Abbey

Addition to Make Boston Hospita I Among Larg·est

LONDON (NC) AD atehbishop representing the Pope was present in West­ minister Abbey Tuesday when Queen Elizabeth and the ranking bishops of the Church of England opened the celebra-: tion of the 900th anniversary of the church built by King St. Ed­ ward the Confessor. The leading Roman Catholic attending was Archbishop Igino Cardinale, apostolic delegate in Great Britain. It was on Dec. 28, 1065-Holy Innocents' D,.ay~that the choir and transep1$ of the church were dedicated. King Edward was too ill to be present for the dedi­ cation and ~ied a. week later. But the original abbey church was his doing-in substitution for a vow he had made to go on a pilgrimage to St. Peter's tomb in Rome. Because of trouble in his realm, he had been dispensed of the vow by Pope St. Leo IX, on the condition that he either give the poor the sum he would have spent for his journey, or build and endow a monastery in honor of St. Peter. He chose the' latter, and the Benedictine com­ munityhe installed at Westmin­ ster was a major force in' the re­ ligious life of the country until it was disbanded by Henry ·VIII in 1540.

The Council OPeD~ with Pope John extending his arms to the bishops who are the successors of the. Apostlea and to the whole world saying: "Come." "Come to Rome." "Come to me." The Council closed with Paul saying: "Go into the world and save it." Between the "Come" and "GO" of Christ three years of teaching intervened.

Now we are sent into the world on the sublime mission to help form the eonscience of that world. Very fittingly the last schema to be passed and pro­ elaimed was the one on the Missions--a beautiful parallel to the words of Our Lord. We began with Liturgy or the "Come into the sanctuary;" we finished with the Missions or "Go into the world."

Catholic Schools Get Ford Grants

I .

Radical Christianity Needed

In Latin American Church

NEW YORK (NC)-The Ford Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $900,000 to two Catholic universities, one in Peru and the other in the Phil­ ippines. The grants were among a group totaling $6.2 million an­ nounCed .by· the foundation for programs to strengthen the edu­ , cational_ base of scientific and technological progress in devel­ oping nations of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. The foundation gave $567,700 to wthe. pontifical € a tholic Uni­ versity of Peru to heIlt it im­ prove. academic, admi~strative and fiscal programs in coopera­ tion with Notre Dame Univer­ sity. A grant of $354,000 was awarded to the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines to assist in the development ·of its library. The university is i:oiJ.­ ducted by the Jesuits.

From "The Church in the New Latin America" Edited by John'I. Considin~ MoM. Chicago friends and admirers of Father Leo Mahon have come to expect shock treatment when they gather for formal or informal addresses from him, whatever the sub­ ject. Somewhere out of the depths of his brilliant mind he d raw s· uneXpected con­ siderations that unfailingly iea involves mcost, If not all, of the following: succeed in upsetting their 1. Creating "family" (commu­ e.;luanimity and in propelling nity), rather th2lJl organization them forcefully tQward medita­ The Church, as Chrbt Incarnate

tion on the basic fundamentals. Thus the new breed across the United States which for the first time is hearing the call to s e r v e the Church in Latin America can listen to him with great profit. His in­ tention is not to turn them back from their resolve. Rather, he aims to prompt them to take full measure of the task involv­ ed in working in Latin America and to take full measure of themselves. With proper respect for the task and proper humility as concerns what· they have to offer they can move forward more securely toward the Latin American apostolate. Apostolic Method The thoughtful Catholic inter­ ested in cooperation with Latin America will recognize that in addition to the recruitment of precious personnel, attention must be given to the important problems embraced in the meth­ odo'ogy of the apostolate, direct and indirect. Wherever earnest missionaries gather there is un­ ending discussion of this sub­ ject. Those with a lifetime of experience behind them have their contribution to make; those who approach the subject with • new eye have creative .thoughts that often prove preci­ OUlJ. In the case of the Latin Anlerican apostolate, special eare is exercised to seek gui­ dance from the Latin Americans who are at home with the task and the people.

At Chicago the conferees ex­ peJienced the privilege of dwell­ ing: on the insights of one who had the. advantage of years of work· among Spanish-speaking grc,ups in Chicago fresh from the Latin American orbit. This was Father Leo T. Mahon, now head of the parish of San Migue­ lito, in the environs of Panama . City, the Latin American mis­ sion of the Archdiocese of Chi­ cago. Father Mahon presented this analysis of the needs of the Church in Latin America: The task of vitalizing the Church in Latin America is so complex that those who want to help must first search for the basic, significant problems and their solutions. To do otherwise would be tantamount to com­ pounding blindness with iue­ sonsibility. The present Church in North America was helped consider­ ably by the overflowing charity and apostolic spirit of the Church in Europe. Now, as a mature people of God, the North American Church is in a posi­ tion .to exercise this very same charity to our brothers in need in J..atin ·America. But our.char-.

fly, if it is to be effective, must be both revelant and significant. To put this· more concretely, the very complex task of revitalizing or reestablishing the Church in Twentieth Century Latin Amer-

in the world today, is a living. dynamic organism and must 'never 'be mere organization. The best organization is never of itself Church, nor will it cause Church. The effort must be made to create spiritual family­ wann, intimate, loving, self­ sacrificial. Once fonned, "fami­ ly" will find its own structure, perhaps heretofore undreamed of structures. 2. Building "Church," rather than schools or even churches The essence o,f Church is com­ munity of people in Christ. There is noticeable lack of Christian coDJ.lllunity in Latin America todar-a lack which thousands of schools, hospitals or temples will not filL A build­ ing, by itself (be it a church, a school or hospital), if it is not the expression of the faith, love and unity of a Christian community, is merely an empty, meaningless, sym.bol. It would be tragic merely to add more institutions and buildings to the Church in Latin America, al­ ready plagued by innumerable, meaningless symbols. 3. Fonning social, rather than merelyindividual conscience. The world is fast going collective and is strongly reacting to in-. dividualism. Perhaps nowhere is this process so unrelenting and visible as in Latin America. Come it must! But will it come from Jesus, Paul and John xxm or from Marx, Lenin and Castro? 4. Forming •. saintlT people and not merely saints We shall all be judged as members of a family, not solely lIS individuals. In the early, highly collective Church, particular judgment·

was interpreted in the light ot· the last day. We Blust counteract the tendency ot the past 1ew centuries to preacb. the opposite.· 5.' Forming a committed, not merely a knowledgeable people Our catechetical and preaching methods in the past have too much concentrated on informing· people rather than fonning them. Academic programs of· instruction must give way more and more to formation programs sUlO:h as Cursillos, Retreats, Bet­ ter World, and C.F.M. 6. Focusing the sacraments as encounters with Christ rather than statistical receptions Of what value are crowded Masses, full communion rails, long con­ fessional queues, if these same sacraments do not basically change the individual and col­ lective lives of the~ people? Mere reception of the uacraments, in the light of the condition of the Church in Latin America, would be useless, if not harmful. If necessary for a time, the number of people frequenting the sacraments should be re­ duced to those who·· approaclt them as encounters with Christ, their leader in the battle for Latin America and as a renewal of· commitment to Christ in com­

The proper, Christian attitude should he one of fulfillment. The true Chris­ tian observes the law by rising abflve it. He does far more in charity than the law requires.. 'l'be example of Christ, not the Law of Moses, establishes. the true pattern for Christian life. Such a standard might possibly reduce, for a time, the number of practicing Catholics, but it would create a dynamic:. image of Christ in His Church (the Sacrament) in Latin America. 8. Fonning Christians in so­ ciety, not members of Christian societies. Latin America is mov­ ing irrevocably toward a plura­

listic culture. The preachment

of the Latin American Church, as well as its institutions, has

in the past been tied to a unique Cat hoI i c culture. Lest the Church becomes just another interesting relic, it must change· its ·posture and mstitutions. The Church is no more the end than it is the founder; it is rather· the way. We should aim at form­ ing Christians in society-in po- . litical parties, in universities, in professions, in unions, and so on, ·rather than Catholic univer­ sities and Catholic unions. 9. Projecting the faith and not merely protecting it. The eall of Pope J obn to Council sounded the death-knell for "Ghetto Christianity." The Church must never again pretend to be the loaf, the meat, the only light.

Rather it must be the leaven that lifts, the salt that savors and .preserves, the light that shines brighter than all the rest. 10. Seeking the truth rather than claiming it. & Christiana we believe that the Truth be­ came Incarnate in humanity. Now we must strive to incarnate, ever more perfectly and ever more relevantly, Christ in our ~ety. This is never an ac­ complished fact but an ever­ continuing' process. The truth of· the Church lies in Christ. But we shall never possess the full­ ness of truth-the fullness of Christ-till the last day.

University Expands

Religious Program CHICAGO (NC)-The trustees' bf the University of illinois have voted 7-2 in favor of expanding the religion curriculum at the university's Urbana· campus. The trustees' action, subject to approval by the state board of higher education, calls for add­ ing two new courses-in the Old and new Testaments-to 10 reli- ' gion courses now offered at the· university. Also, students could obtain a minor in religion, The post of "program chairman" in religious studies would be created, and two new specialists in Scripture studiea would be added to the

Historical evidence. for "the gi-eat multitude of Romans" who gave their lives for Christ after trial by fire at the command of Emperor Nero comes from writ­ ings of the Roman historian 'Tacitus. . Construction of a church for the densely populated area of about 15,000 residents is expect­ ed to begin next month near one of the city's main traffic arteries, Via Aurelia Nuova. DiOcesan priests will be in charge.

Bishop Connolly's Christmas Sermon

Continued from Page' One or, by our customary title: the ,Book of the Acopalypse. In the first chapter of John's gospel, we read, as follows: '''In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God" (1: 1-2) "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, such as belongs to the only begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and truth." "And to all who re­ ceived Him, He gave them pow­ er to become children of God." "No one has ever seen God, but His only Son Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made Him known, He has given us a clear message." (John 1: 18)

In the Book of Revelations, before the wonderful vision of heavenly content and love for God, John wrote in Chapter 21, the words taken for our text. But He wrote more than that: "I heard a great voice from the throne saying: 'behold the dwel­ ling of God is with men. He will dwell with them and they shall be His people. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more,-neither shalL there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." "and He said to ,m'e, it is done! I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water without price from the fountain of the water of life." 'We are living in a day of Christian renewal. Thanks to good Pope John who announced the programme, and the highly perceptive and yet down-to­ earth Pope Paul the VIth., who illustrates renewal, by his in­ spiring, brotherly words, and more particularly by his deeds, -the Fathers of the Council and thei!;' sympathetic, understand­ ing observors have realized the need and taken prompt a<!tion. There is a spirit of good-will . all through Christendom, that can and will make out of the joy and peace we feel to-night, a perpetual Christmas. The twenty four hundred Concilar Fathers, coming from every race, country and climate, have painstakingly p rayed, hoped for, and planned for Christian Renewal. They have based their Decrees for ALL the faithful, on solid scriptural, logical, and inspired foundations: The Constitutions on Revelation, on the Church, the Community at worship, and the intimate' relations of Faith with the Modern World. The soo-called Decrees and they number nine, make up in logical order the application of the Constitutions to everyone of us, from the rank of the hier­ archy down the line to the laity, their rights and duties. First "f these is the recognition of the ftignity of the individual and his right to have his freedoms, and conscientious sense of re­ ligious obligation res p e c ted. Each man has an inalienable right to be guided by his con­ science,-assuming always that it is an honestly formed con­ science, and that he does not violate the rights of others, cause moral disturbance in the com­ munity, or state, and disturb the peace that should always be sought after among men. One may readily see hQ,W this pos­ ition might possibly be taken advantage of, in communistic (lr dictatorial lands. There, th~ concept of public order is based on laws, grounded in atheism and which have as their goai governmental control of the lives of the nations not' alone ,those already subject, but those that they hope some day will be. And what is government, and are the law:s but an ex­

pression of the will to dominate of a select few, who have risen to places of authority, from 1917 till to-day, and whose careers have been marked bY' 'ruthless­ ness, wholesale murders, and dishonesties that no man in good conscience could ever carry oun Nonetheless, the Church has gone on record for the rights of the individual J8nd communi­ ty conscience, always trusting that it be formed in the knowl-, edge that God is our Judge, and witness to what we pro­ fess ,or pretend to do. The remaining Decrees go down the line, treating of the Pastoral duties of Bishops. Here it is interesting to note that the first concern is with the Universal Church. There fol­ low directives for the govern­ ment of dioceses; the need for co-operation, under the guidance of the sheperd, of priests, re­ ligious and laity. It is all highly detailed, and those who are prone to interest themselves in the responsibilities of others than themselves, might have a fine time for themselves by re'ading this decree. More im­ portant for them that they first see, appreciate, understand, and follow what the Council sets up as the goal of activity for them. However, there's no harm, but rather only good that could result from the study of all constitutions, decrees and de­ clarations coming from Vatican II. The Decree on Priestly life and duties follows. Here we find traced out the obligation of the clergy to serve rather than be served. One lesson the priest and the bishop may learn from the ex­ ample of Pope Paul is that he is "an apostle on-the-go." He has placed no limit or stint on his sense of obligation. He is all that Pope John was, accessible, con­ cerned ',vith the poor, the de­ prived, the have-nots of the whole world. His devotional journey to Palestine laid the grounds for a reunion between the Orthodox and the Latin Rite Catholic. His visit to India, was truly apostolic; but what preach­ ing he did was more by example than by word. He made no ges­ ture or effort to turn the Hindu or Mohammedan his way. But he did much to hearten and help them. His comIng to the United States last Fall was in the inter­ est of Peace on earth, and the conquest of war, a highly desir­ able thing, in this suspicious, even though highly scientific age. Next the Council dealt with the processes of training priests, the work of the Missionary, the life and work of the Religious. It may surprise many, impatient for change to learn that in no case wa9"'there expected to be such a turning upside-down, or a complete change in the objec­ tives and lives of dedication that have made the priest mis­ sionary and religious loved and cherished by all, regardless of their religious professiolil.. I may say in passing that the religious does not belong in jail, even though well-intentioned z e a I has brought them to march in picket lines. The same applies to seminarians. Those that want complete revision of our tradi­ tion in seminary education had better try to establish' thei; own. institutions, and give the world proof of their particular genius and devotion in the cause of Christ. ,It is to be wondered sometimes whether a spirit of exhibitionism, rather than the love of God and neighbor is at the source of, modern-day un­ rest, especially in some schools and universities throughout the land. ' However, I wish to read from the Decree on Adaptation and Renewal of the ReliiioWl

mer is my duty; the latter • graee for me. The former is • danger; the latter, salvation." The lay-apostolate is a sharing in the salvific mission of, the Church itself. Through Baptism we are all one with Christ, Through Confirmation we should become strong and perfect Christians. Confession heals us. Communion sanctifies us. Mar­ riages makes us co-operators with the creative act of God Himself, and instruments for the spread of His love, in and outside the family, the commu­ nity, and even of the state. We are Catholic, with a clear outlook on the whole world. We have the right, and the duty, to take conscientiously upon ourselves whatever im­ proves the lot of our fellowman. , We must bring him Christ. We must learn to find Chrt'st in him, no matter what his condition or estate. In the spirit of St. Pat- t rick's famous prayer, we dis­ cover Christ "in the mouth of everyone that speaks to uS,-in every eye that sees us, in every ear that hears us." We bind to ourselves each day the virtue o~ faith in the Holy Trinity, the vIrtue of the Incarnation of Christ, with his redeeming death and resurrection. We remind ourselves that judgement is not to be feared by those who live dominated by the Love which Christ came to reveal and share with all who belieVe 'in His name.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!: Tiniest refugee to ar­ rive from Cuba aboard a plane of the government-spon­ sored airlift is little Pedro Luis Corona, born Nov. 25 in Havana, baptized in Miami and now happily ,resettled with his parents in Newark, N.J. NC Photo. Life. It reads as follows: "the more fervently they (the Reli­ gious) are joined to Christ by this total life-long gift of themselves, the richer the life of the Church becomes, and the more lively and successful its apostolate." The first objective of the religious life is to achieve a more profound union with God. They pray, they seek grace and inspiration through reading the sacred Scriptures, meditat­ ing on the Word of God, parti­ cipating in Mass. What structu­ ral changes are made, what changes in attire to suit sensible demands, what adjustments to modern needs, will never have a salutary effect if they are not with a view to accomplish spir­ itual renewal. Superiors are meant to be mentors and pat­ terns of life in a true sense of the word. They are to serve. They are to 'respect the dignity of their subjects. At the same time, both superior and sub­ ject must preserve the ideals of their particular community or order. They are to persevere loyally in their exercise of the vows, not forgetting that of obe­ dience, since this in no way ever lessens human dignity, as long as it is done generously out of the motive of love "for God and service of neighbor. They must never forget that their fulfillment as religious de­ pends on living consciously in the Presence of God, and seeking in every experience the means of finding Christ, and announc­ ing His Gospel, at least by their conduct. Some of you may think it strange, that your Bishop uses his Christmas sermon to talk But there's a purpose in it. The programme has been prepared for Christian Renewal. But un­ fortunately the best of ideals often go by the wind, for lack ,of proclamation, explanation and al?plication. And I want no one in this diocese ever to allege that he was never t~ld. Beginning this night, we start to implement ,what our record as Fathers of the Council requires of us. I should like every man, woman and school chlld of the diocese to become familiar with the

whole programme. In any case it is only right that beginnin~ with basic principles in the Constitution on the Church, and

following the ruling in the Decree on the Lay Apostolate

we bring ourselves· to realize

the tremendous importance at­ tached to the layman' and lay Woman in their practice of the Faith. I might sum up the whole matter of the religious duty of the Catholic laity, in the words of Jean Guitton, distinguished editor and lecturer in France. He said: "the layman lives in the world; he must deal with the world as he finds it. He goes into the activities and pre­ occup~tions of, his time, not to lose hIS soul, but to give a soul to th~ world." What especially characterizes the laity is that they live in the world, among worldings. Led by the Spirit of God, they shoulc work for the sanctification of those about them, as well as themselves. They bear witness to the unity that must exist in the Christian community. From Divine choice they have Christ as their Brother. They also have as broth­ ers in the sacred ministry those who are called to teach, sanctify and save them,-who break the Bread of Life for them, who ab­ solve, hearten and help them St. Au~ustine puts the relation~ ship between clergy and laity beautifUlly when he says: "What I am for you terrifies me' what I am with you console~ me For you I am a Bishop; but with you I am a Christian. The for-


Again since the layman lives

in the world, his apostoli.. field

is centered in the world. No

secular concern is extraneous te him, at least for his spiritual

development. "Whatsoever yoa do in word, or in work do all in the name and for the sake of 9ur Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God the Father." (CoL 3. 17). Through family life, so­ cial life, in the professions and all levels of contact, we a;e aD co-operators with truth, wit­ nesses to what we believe, seek­ ing ,our own Christian renewal through what we do in the home, or at business, "heralds of the faith," interested in all that keeps the Church beautiful and tnie to her Founder, never ashamed to show our faith, fear­ ful only that we could be dis­ loyal, more through fear of men than of God. "May we let our light so shine before men that they see our good works and glorify our Father Who is ill heaven;" (Mt. 5:16). Despite all our science, wealth and influence as a nation, noth- "­ ing ever happened in the world as necessary as the humble birth of Christ. Nothing more important ever happened in our life, than our Christian Bap­ tism that made us one with Christ, brothers of Christ, sons &f God. We cannot be suffi­ ciently thankful in what we say. We can prove our gratitude by the manner .f our life, conform­ ing 18 the Will of Our Lord, lov­ ing 8ur neighbor as He did and does always, from the Crib te the Cross, and forever in His heavenly home, where we, hope to be with Him eternally.

Guide for Seminaries Vincentian Cites Five Qualities Found

In Genius of St. Vincent de Paul

JAMAICA (NC)-Five quali­ ties found in the peasant genius of St. Vincent de Paul were r~c­ ommended. by a Vincenban priest to those who would aPJ?~ the Second Vatican CounCIl s statement on the renewal of seminary training. Father Maurice A. Roche, C.M., philosophy professor at Mary Iml..aculate Seminary, North­ ampton, Pa., said the reform of seminaries needs men who can imitate in St. Vincent de Paul "his reasonable obedience; his prudent initiative; his realization of the present need of the Church; his sense of the possi­ ble' and his preference for ac­ tio~ rather than criticism. Father Roche gave the princi­ pal address at the annual st. Vincent de Paul Convocation at St. John's University here in New York. prudent Initiative Father Roche said st. Vincent was outstanding in so many fields> that his contributions to the training of priests is over­ looked in preference to his other

achieve'ments, but his "ideas on the formation of clerics have had a lasting effect on the his­ tory of the Church since his time up until the pre~nt day." St. Vincent's prudent initiative made him careful never to "thrust himself into a portion of the vineyard entrusted to an­ other," Father Roche said. "He formed his own congrega­ tion of priests to give missions only because no other group was doing it, and only after securing ecclesiastical authorization," he added. In recogni zirig the needs of ' the Church, St. Vincent put em­ phasis on building seminaries "to train men to work as pastors in small country villages." He added: "The· training of this lower clergy had been sadly neglected for years."

T«;» Safeguard Human Rights

WORCESTER (NC) - A diocesan official advocated the reestablishment of a Church court for the pro­


tection of an individual's human rights. Father Henry G. Bowen, vice­ officials of the Worcester Dioc­ esan Tribunal told a luncheon meeting of professional and bus­ iness men here he felt the time has come when "we need to dis­ cuss and research and investigate the possibility of reestablishing or reactivating judical proce­ dures for the vindication of rights within the Church in other fields than marriage." Father Bowen, who holds a doctorate in canon law from the Catholic University of America, Washington, D. C., discussed the present-day operations of the tribunal in American dioceses, particularly in the Worcester diocese. Today, he said, Church courts deal almost exclusively with matrimonial matters. However, he added, the needs of the Church go beyond this one area. Only Recourse "Currently," Father Bowen said, "if the rights of an individ­ ual Cathvlic are violated or ig­ nored in some ecclesiastical or­ ganization, or by some official of the Church, or some clergyman within the Church, the only re­ course available is an adminis­ trative one-o-to appeal to some administrator of higher rank in the Church. "At times," he continued, "this procedure may be expeditious, faster, more certain of result, if the administrator will act-and , increasingly he will act. "But the success of this pro­ eedure is dependent ultimately Gn the good will and zeal of the administrator - a good will which mayor may not be pres­ ent. Thus, the existence or the use of this remedy is, at best, arbitrary." "This is an essential defect," he commented. "I think that we must examine carefully the pos­ , sibility of activating some judi­ cial channel in the Church through which these rights could be viridicated equitably, justly and expeditiously."

Laymen Have Role In Consecration WASHINGTON (NC) - Lay participation by staff members of the National Catholic Wel­ fare Conference marked the consecration Mass of, Bishop Paul F. Tanner, NCWC general aecretary. 'J'he epistle for the Mass was read by' William R. Consedine, director of the conference's Legal Department. The offer­ tory procession was composed of four members of the staff of the NCWC executive office­ .Joann White, Jane Schubert, J'03'ce Lowery, and Catherine Prince. Observei's said this was one of the first 'times that laymen have actively participated in a consecration Mass in this coun­ try.

Council to Meet


The m0nthly meeting of Fall River Particular Council, So­ ciety of St.' Vincent de Paul, will be held. next Tuesday night in St. Louis Parish hall fol­ lowing 'Benedictioo. 'io. the eh\uch at 7:45.

Members of Our Lady of Purgatory Maronite parish, New Bedford, received a'unique 'and precious gift at midnight Mass this Christmas. It came when Rev. Anthony Hardin of Ehmej, Lebanon exposed for their veneration a cloth used in 1950 to wipe the face of , Blessed Sharbel Makhlouf, famed Hermit of Lebanon. Startingly reminiscent of pictures of Veronica's VE!il, the cloth, .' a priest's linen amice, was used to wipe the face of the holy man when his coffin was opened in the course of moving his remains to a new tomb. Blessed Sharbel died in 1898, but his body has remained in­ corrupt and continuously exudes a blood-lil:e substance. It was this substance that produced an image of his face on the amice in 1950, explained Father Har­ din, who is a parish priest in Ehmej, a small town only 15 minutes walk from the monas­ tery in Lebanon where Father Sharbel lived his holy life. Father Hardin, together with a cousin, Karam Hardin, is in the United States to visit a brother, Joseph G. Hardin of Our Lady of Purgatory parish. It is the first visit to this country for the men, and marks the first time the brothers have met for 53 years. "But we knew each other right away," the bearded priest de­ clared. His was a late vocation, he said. He is married and has seven children. He explained that Maronite priests may marry before ordination. Built Tomb Although a Diocesan priest, Father Hardin has been associ­ ated with the monks of Father Sharbel's Order of St. Anthony of the Desert throughout his life. He and his New Bedford brother recall, as small boys, kissing Father Shabel's hand when the monk's body was disinterred shortly after his death and ex­ posed to the public. And in 1950, when a new tomb was prepared for the holy man, Father Hardin, not yet a priest and practicing the trade of a stonemason, was among workers on the project. The Lebanese priest said that at least two first cousins of Blessed Sharbel and many grandnieces and grandnephews still live in the Ehmej area. The hermitage where the monk spent

. nessecf the ,last week of the Second Vatican Council called it "a very significant event, not ,only in the Roman Catholic Church, but even in the world. The Rev. James Leo Garrett, professor of Christian theology ,at Southern Baptist seminary here, in an interview, said: ''The council did not remove any of the major theological differences, , but this was not what it was in­ tended to. Council actions did clear the atmosphere." Dr. Garrett went to the council as an individual, non-official ob­ server, although he was accorded , many of the privileges of obser­ vers. His trip was arranged by a private founda~ion here. Increasing Action He said his brief stay did not .equip him 'sufficiently to judge the overall council (although he has already studied 9 of 11 docu­ ments he brought home with him). But with this qualification, he viewed the religious liberty doctrine as "praticularly impor­ tant * * * from the Baptist per· spective particularly." One definite step he said he believes council action will pro­ mote is the interchange between Baptist and Catholic scholars. For example, he has noted in­ creasing action' here.
