I- READ BIBLE, SCOTS URGED N Edinburgh, Scotland, March 20 (NC)--Current inexpensive edi- tions of the Scriptures have deprived Catholics of  all excuses for not reading the bible, Archbishop ' Gordon Gray of St. Andrews and Edinburgh said in . a pastoral letter. "We Catholics have sometimes been criticized : for not reading the Bible," he said. "If there is an element of truth in the accusation, the blame does . not lie with the Church but with ourselves.

After referring to her fervor as an Episcopalian, Pope John said that Mother Seton arrived at the Catholic Faith "not by a denial of the past but rather as reaching a providential goal . . . for which she had been prepared by the whole course of her former life." He said that Mrs. Seton's entering the Catholic Church was an "enriching of the treas- ure she already possessed." The Pope also praised the United States and called Mother Seton a "Precursor" of the U.S. parochial school system in his address in St. Peter's basilica at an afternoon ceremony for the beatification, the last in a series of steps which lead to being named a saint. Reared an Episcopalian Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, the first native U.S. citizen called blessed by the Catholic Church, was born in New York City in 1774. Brought up an Episcopalian, she was the mother of five children and a widow when in 1803 she be- came a Catholic. In 1807, she founded the Sistei's of Charity of St. Joseph. Pope John noted in his ad- dress that the United States has continually adopted laws which are "derived from princi- ples of Christian morality" and "ever more in keeping with the dignity of the human person." "In the United States, the heroes of the most noble un- dertakings are honored with acclaim and admiration both in life and death," he said. "For the first time, a heroine of the United States of Ameri- ca has appeared in glory above the altar of the Chair of St. Peter's basilica." The beatification s t a r t e d with a morning ceremony in St. Peter's. The basilica was in semi-darkness as a long ac- count of Mother Seton's life and the French Revolution. At the end of the. 19th century, the abbey :'grounds were bought by the French government and *ilused for a trade school. . ' '  . COMMISSION SET LIP ,---; Rome, : March 20 ....

He is Bishop-designate Den- nis Vincent Durning, S.S.Sp., who has been named by His Holiness Pope John XXlII to be first Bishop of newly erected Diocese of Arusha, Tanganyika. The Holy Ghost Father has THIS VATICAN PAINTING of the new Beata, Mother Elizabeth Seton, display during the beatification ceremonies in St. Peter's Basilica March 17, depicts the religious families stemming from Mother Seton's work. " A gasp of awe, or perhaps of pride, escaped from the pre- dominantly American congrega- tion. Some 3,000 U.S. pilgrims, including 500 Sisters of congreg- ations which claim Mother Seton as their spiritual mother, flew here for the ceremonies. :On St. Patrick's Day Enlivening the dark dress of the pilgrims, and even the hab- its of some of Mother Seton's nuns, were flashes of green -- a reminder that St. Patrick was not forgotten on his day even though it was the day of Mother Seton's glorification. Pope John called Mother Se- ton "a p r o di g y of celestial grace." "God led this woman through many experiences and to pro- found decisions concerning her spiritual life," he said in his address. He called the Filicchi family, whom Elizabeth met on a visit to Italy in-1803, a "shining ex- ample of fidelity to the Church." They portrayed "be- fore the eyes of the fervent Episcopalian, as Elizabeth then was, the ideal picture of Cath- olicism as it should be lived. "The newly beatified arrived at Catholicism, .not by denial of the past but rather as reaching a providential goal through study, prayer and the practice of charity for which she had been prepared by the whole course of her former life." Finding herself in the Cath- olic Church, he said, was "an enriching of a treasure she already possessed." "The name and symbol of charity .became the program of her interior life." he said. "In founding the religious family of the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph (1807) . . . it was her wish to dedicate herself to every form of charity. "Her work for the education of youth stands Out above all She is rightly considered one of the precursors of the paro- chial school system which has borne and still bears such abun- dant fruits in the United States, providing the Church and the country with a constant flow of fervent Catholics and exem- plary citizens," he said. Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop of New York, read an English translation of the Pope's address. The Pope spoke in Italian. Many Americans at Rites Among the U.S. pilgrims at the ceremonies were groups led by Cardinal Spellman, Joseph Cardinal Ritter, Archbishop of St. Louis; Archbishop Law- rence J. Shehan of Baltimore; Archbishop Patrick A. O'Boyle of Washington, and Archbishop John P. Cody, Apostolic Admin- istrator of New Orleans. Others at the ceremonies were: Archbishop Martin J.

"watt and see': .can kill ,: religious vocations, Archbishop Edward F. Hoban has warn- red. Archbishop Hoban, Bishop of Cleveland, urged parents to give "warm encouragement" to their children if they show an interest in the priestly c: religious life. In a pastoral letter opening a diocesan vocations week ob- servance, he cautioned: "All too often a 'wait and see' attitude--the worldly ad. vice to taste material plea- sures first or even outright opposition to the vocation-- has destroyed more effec- tively than any persecution of Christ and His Church." Archbishop Hohan declared that "no greater blessing or honor can come to a truly Christian family than the gift of a vocation to one or more of its members." Greater Seattle, Inc.

At Dublin, the group was received by Irish President Eamon de Valera. After the Latin document proclaiming Mother Seton blessed was read, a pontifical Mass was offered by Paolo Cardinal Marella, Archpriest of St. Peter's basilica. Pope Blessed Relics In the afternoon ceremony at which Pope John paid homage to the new blessed he received a gold reliquary containing relics of Mother Seton. The reliquary, designed in the form of an ostensorium, had a map of the United States on its base. It was presented to Pope John by the postulator for Mother Seton's beatification, Rev. Lui- gi Bisoglio, C.M., and the vice- postulator, Rev. John P. Mc- Gowan, C.M., of St. Vincent's seminary, Philadelphia. Archbishop Shehan officiated at Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. The large painting in front of the basilica showed Mother Se- ton together with Sisters of the congregations of her spiritual daughters. Inside the basilica hung two paintings represent- ing two cancer cures worked through her intercession -- one for Sister Gertrude Dorzender: far of New Orleans and the other for Ann Teresa O'Neill, 15, from Baltimore, who was at the ceremony with her mother. Ann was presented to the Pope during the afternoon ceremony. Holy Father Receives Pilgrims Immediately after the after- noon ceremonies, Pope John granted an audience to all the pilgrims present in St. Peter's. The following day, March 18, the first Mass of a triduum in honor of the new blessed was offered by Cardinal Ritter in the Church of SS. John and Paul, the titular church of Car- dinal Spetlman. The S i s t i n e choir sang at the Mass and Fa- ther McGowan gave a sermon on Mother Seton. On Tuesday, U.S. pilgrims were guests at a reception at the North American College. The second pontifical Mass of the triduum was offered by A m 1 e t o Cardinal Cicognani, Papal Secretary of State and loyal supporter of Mother Se- ton's cause. A s e r m o n was preached by Rev. James P. Cunningham, C. S. P., procur- ator general of the Paulist Fathers and pastor of Santa Susanna, the parish church for Americans in Rome. U.S. Monsignor Closes Trld,um The final Mass of the triduum Wednesday was offered by Ar- cadio Cardinal Larraona, C. M. F., Prefect of the Sacred Con- gregation of Rites. Msgr. John Middleton, rector of St. Peter's church in New York City, where Mother Seton was re- ceived into the Church, preached the sermon. Bergamo Priest Declared 'Blessed' VATICAN CITY, March 21 (Radio, NC)--More than 10,000 people were present in St. Peter's basilica for the beatifi- cation of Blessed Luigi Palaz- zolo, Bergamo priest who de- voted his life to the poor of that diocese, the native See of His Holiness Pope John XXIII. Praising the Church's new- est blessed, the Pope recalled that he was five years old when "he heard that vener- ated name for the first time." From then on, the Pope de- clared; through his years as a seminarian, priest and bishop, he had "looked for this day which Providence had granted him to see as Bishop of Rome." Blessed Luigi's beatification March 19 followed that of Blessed Elizabeth Seton by two days. Pope John stressed that both new blesseds are examples of the vitality of the Church. After venerating relics of Blessed Luigi, the Pontiff de- livered an address on the bless- ed's life. He stressed that Blessed Luigi practiced to an outstand- ing degree the theological vir- tues of faith, hope and charity as well as the cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, temper. ance and fortitude. He noted that Blessed Luigi was one of the many priests of the last century to devote himself to the education of the young and the care of the poor. He pointed out that the congregation the new blessed founded--the Sisters of the Little Poor of Bergamo--are at work today in Europe and Africa "carrying out all the works of spiritual and corpo- ral mercy." Stamp Honors St. Paul MADRID (NC)--Spain has is- sued a special postage stamp to commemorate the 1,900th anniversary of the arrival of St. Paul in this country. Havana broadcast heard here, blamed "reactionaries" for the differences which led the Church to excommunicate him. (In January, 1962, Archbishop Dino Staffa, adviser on canon law to the Papal Secretariate of State, told newsmen in Vati- can City that Premier Castro was automatically excommuni- cated for restricting the work of bishops and priests in Cuba. The Holy See had not formally decreed Castro's excommunica- tion but Archbishop Steffa said that no formal decree was nec- essary for the decree to be ef- fective. (His Holiness Pope John XXIII received the credentials of Cuban Ambassador Luis Amado-Blanco y Fernandez February 3, 1962. The Holy See has kept its nunciature in Ha- vana open.) "Conflicts between the revo- lution and the Catholic Church have begun to disappear," Castro said. "In the first months of the revolution there was talk of counter-revolu- tionary cases in the Church, but now such talk is seldom heard." He gave no indication, how- ever, that the 570 priests ex- pelled since he seized power in January, 1959, would be allowed to return. "Imperialists" who "tried but failed to set the Catholic Church against the revolutit,n" are now "subsidizing" non- Catholic sects and using them as a "vanguard for infiltra- tion," he said. While stating that his regime "respects the religious senti. meats of any citizen" he indi- cated that Cuba will not toler- ate nonconformist denomina- tions such as Christian bodies which worship Saturday ,.'nstead of Sunday. He labeled three sects--the Jehovah's Witnesses, the Evangelical Band of Gid. con, and the Church of the Pentecost--as "the principal in- struments of imperialism to- day." Requiem Said For Cuban Cardinal HAVANA (NC) -- Solemn requiem Mass was offered yes- terday in Havana Cathedral for Manuel Cardinal Arteaga y Betancourt, 84, who died in San Rafael Hospital, Havana, March 20. The Cardinal-Archbishop of Havana had been in failing health for over a year. He ob- tained refuge at the Argentine embassy in Havana when Cuba was invaded in April, 1961. The Cardinal was transferred to the hospital when Argentina sev- ered relations with Cuba in 1962. Bishop Coleman Carroll of Miami attended the requiem in Havana. The Cardinal is t h e third cardinal to die in 1963. The number of cardinals is now 82. Franciscan Sister Is Jubilarian TOLEDO  Sister M. Roberta, O.S.F., of St. Mary Academy here will celebrate the golden anniver- sary of her religious profession Monday, March 25, with a Mass of Thanksgiving to be of- fered by Ray. Fabian Gussen- hoven, O.F.M., pastor of St. Francis Church, in the Acad- emy Chapel where Sister will renew her vows. Sunday, March 24, Sister of her community from As- cension Convent, Portland, and St. Bernadette's, Seattle. will join the Sisters at the Academy in celebrating the day. Sister Roberta was born in Pomeroy, Ohio, and entered the novitiate of the Sisters of St. Francis in 1908 making her final profession there in 1913. She has taught in schools throughout the West as well as in New York. She was also sup- erior of Sacred Heart Hospital in Havre, Mont., and of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Santa Maria, Calif. The most outstanding of all Sister's work was the es- tablishment with three Jap- anese Sisters of the Japanese Catholic Mission in Los An- geles which was eventually taken over by the Maryknoll Sisters. In 1931 at the request of the late Bishop Robert Armstrong of Sacramento, Sister single- h a n d e d established another mission modeled after the one in Los Angeles. It continued until 1943 when the Japanese were evacuated. At present, Sister Roberta is still active. She supervises study periods at the Academy and assists in Confraternity in- structions in St. Francis Church and in Sacred Heart Church, Winlock. Getting the Green Light TOKYO, Japan -- The pa*rti- cular blessing wasn't in the Ritual, but Rev. John Crowe, S.S.C., managed anyway. "It isn't often a priest is called upon to bless a traffic light," said the Columban mis- sionary, "but we blessed the newly-installed traffic signals in front of the church in shima Ku with full pomp and ceremony. "The local police chief and a few of his aides attended and after the ceremony hon- orable tea was served in the church hall." Thief Picks Wrong Victim MADRID (NC)--A thief here picked the wrong time to pur- loin a visiting bishop's valise. Madrid's detectives were all for the bishop. The irreverent thief took the valise--which held the bishop's miter and other liturgical ob- jects -- while the detectives were at a ceremony honoring their patrons, the Guardian Angels. (The feast, usually celebrated October 2, is marked during March in Spain.) Bishop Leopoldo Eijo y Garay of Madrid had excused the detectives from the Len- ten fast for the day. After taking advantage of the dispensation of a banquet, the well-fed detectives found the thief at the Madrid Thieves' Market trying to sell the stolen goods.
