Official Bishops' Relief Collection D To the Clergy,, Religious and Faithful of the Archdiocese of Seattle Dearly Beloved in Christ: The annual Bishops' Relief Collection will be taken up in every Catholic Church throughout the United S t a t e s on Laetare Sunday March 28. The g e n e r o u s contributions of the faithful to this national collection have, for the past 20 years, enabled the bishops of the coun- try to sponsor the tremendous work of Catholic D Relief Services. This agency has aided more than 30 million needy, men, women and children, in Southern Europe, Africa, the Near and Far East and Latin It has distributed over one and three-quarter billion pounds of surplus food, clothed people in every part of the world and promoted so- cial, educational, health and welfare programs in over 70 countries. It is the largest work of mercy and charity and compassion ever conducted by a non-government agency. D Not too long our Holy Father, Pope Paul ago, VI, quoting from Pope John's two great encyclicals, "Mother and Teacher" and "Peace on Earth", stressed the maternal anxiety of the whole Church for the poor, the needy, the afflicted, the hungry, the suffering and the sorrowing. Last year we contributed the sum of $70,381.86 to this important nationwide appeal. This outstanding response has been increasing year by year and I am D confident that your generous interest in this special appeal will again this year represent an eloquent total of gratitude to the Good Shepherd for the i- total of gratitude to the Good Shepherd for the in- He has showered upon each and every one of us and which we take so much for granted. If we could forget our troubles as easily as we forget our bless- ings, we would probably be a happy people. With every best wish and blessing, I am Devotedly yours in Christ, N. B.

"Laetare Sunday will find you again asking your generous people, themselves also now more deeply conscious of the plight of their needy brothers and sisters of God's great fam- ily, to' contribute to the Bishops' Relief Fund," Pope Paul said in his letter. "We would have you convey to them our warm appreciation f o r shouldering with us the burden, increasingly heavy, of feeding and caring for the flock of Chirst, His people everywhere."

They have eyes and ears, they walk and talk and hope and yearn. Like us they suffer when in need, and their needs .are greater and more elemental than we can really appreciate. In a word, these poor are our brothers," Pope Paul continued.
