14--THE, PROGRESS Frclay, Feb. 21, 1964 Catholic Today--But Tomorrow? XTREMES of wealth and poverty, impatience with the status quo, resentment of foreign domination and the frustration of intellectuals and the proletariat --all make Latin America ripe for Communist conversionl As the land's economy is still based on agriculture, agrarian reform is the chief problem: only five per cent of Latin Amer- ica's total acreage is being used, as compared to 24 per cent in the United States. Agricultural production will not keep pace with the population growth until agrarian reform takes place, and the latter requires heroic sacrifices by the upper classes and the Church. Latin America will soon possess the largest number of bap- tized Catholics in the world, but the shortage of clergy has caused widespread religious illiteracy. Millions claim to be Catholic who, though baptized, have never made their first Communion or been married in the Church. Devotion to Our Lady is fervent, but as this is usually not accompanied by a Sacramental life, its basis is clearly superstitious. The chief dbstacle to the advancement of these poor is mass illiteracy. Seventy million cannot read or write, and half of the school-age children have no schools to attend. Hope for the fu- ture lies with further development of mass-communication me- dia, a dynamic catechetical system and the slowly growing middle class, from whom it is hoped vacations will come. What are American Catholics doing? There are now over 2,000 American missionaries in Latin America and hundreds of Papal Volunteers. The Latin American Bureau of the National Catholic Welfare Conference is devoted to the rejuvenation of the Catholic Church in these lands, and American Bishops set aside over a million dollars each year for Latin American projects. Employment of lay auxiliaries, Catholic and Protestant, in missionary service has been on the rise since World War II for several reasons. One is the development of international cooperation to reduce illiteracy, promote public health and de- velop natural resources. Another is the tremendous growth in population, which has caused professional missionaries to spend most of their time caring for new Christians to the neglect pf non-Christians. The Church is taking an increasingly active part in this work. There were 307 American lay missionaries in foreign countries as of January, 1962 -- an increase of 211 from 1958. Society for The Propagation of the Faith Ray. Stephen Szemon, Archdiocesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4MA. 2.8880 Numerous organizations in the United States sponsor these lay missionaries. Centers have been set up in Mexico, Petropolis and Puerto Rico to train persons from various countries who are heading for the missions of Latin America. But compare our zeal -- or lack of it -- with two non- Catholic sects. The Mormons (1.5 million members) have over 11,500 active missioners. Mormon youths generally serve as mission aids for several years at their own expense. Je- hovah's Witnesses have 803,000 "heralds" among their 3.5 million members; 120 mission institutes in over 100 countries T FER,S 60th SALUTING HATIOHAL BOOK WEEK Apostolic Sanctity in the World Haley, C.S.C .... 3.75 Reflections on Growing Old LaFarge . 2.95 Friends, Romans & Protestants McGloin . . 3.50 Handbook of the Militant Christian Eramus ...3.95 Crisis of Faith; P.
