II [ IT IS part of the general confusion of our time to assume that when a man speaks against Communism that he thereby is anti-Russian. It is this confusion which we seek to dissipate, It really ought to be clear to everyone that an idealogy is distinct from a people. The ideology of Nazism has passed, but the German peo- ple survive. In like manner, Rus- sia existed long before Commu- nism came into being, end will continue to exist long after Com- munism has been forgotten. Communism iS so little a part of the Russian people that it has existed only about thirty years in the almost One thousand years Christian history of Russia. This distinction we make be- tween Communism and Russi has its basis in the Christian dis- tinction between the sin and the sinner; one can hate Communism as an evil system, but still love the Communists as creatures made to the image and likeness of God and capable of Divine Re- demption. It is interesting that the Church las never once condenlned Com- munism without at the same time speaking of its affection for Rus- sia. For example Pius XI, on Feb- ruary 2, 1930, wrote on Encyclical entitled The Soviet Campaign Against God, the major portion of which was concerned with prayers for Russia: "We approved and enriched with indulgences the circulatory prayer 'O Saviour of the world, Save Russia,' and again in the course of the last few months two forms of prayer in which the people of Russia are commended to the protection of the sweet wonder worker of Lisieux, St. Theresa of the iInfant Jesus." A later Encyclical directed against Atheistic Communism on the 19th of Mrch 1937, ends with these words: "We pray the Lord to enlighten the Russian people, that they may abandon the slippery path which will precipitate one and all to ruin and catastrophe, and that they recognize that Jesus Christ, Our Lord, is their only Saviour, for there is no other name under heaven given to man whereby we must be saved." , Though the world does not know it, all the prayers said at the end of every low Mass throughout the entire world, are said for the intention of Rus- sla It was in 1980 that the Holy Father ordered that these prayers which up to that point had been said for the settle- ment of the Iteran question, should now be said for the con- version of ItussiL This means that now as ever in the past, the Church is willing to accept the erring into the treas- ury of her souls, but never the error into the treasury of her wisdom. In the light of this dis- tinction we raise our voice in de- fense of Russia, not as some fel- low travellers would do in order] to justify the spreading of evil] germs of Communism through a I seeming love of a nation, but t rather because of the inherent} dignity of a great and holy people. There is a deep seated tradition in Russia that it would one day become very wicked before it would ever become very good. Nineteenth Century Russia which l might be called the twilight of Communism foresaw the terrible upheaval. ,Unlike the Western writers wh were babbling inevitcable progress, the Russian writers were full of foreboding about bourgeois ma- t e r i a I i st i c civilization. Not (Continued on Page 4) EW YORK -- One of the most notable literary con- tests ever conducted under 2atholic or any other auspices has been announced by The Christophers, who -are offering a total of $30,000 in three awards for the best book-length manu- scripts submitted within the next 20 months. The Christopher- movement is comprised of those who undertake individually and personally to re- store Christian principles to the various phases of public life. By .prayer and work they strive to "bear Christ" especially into the fileds of education, government, labor-management and communi- cation of ideas (newspapers, mo- tion pictures, radio, magazines. book ,and other media). To "be a Christopher one need not "join" any additional organization; each works as an individual. There are no meetings and no dues. "Much of the tragedy of our times," holds Father James Kel- ler, M.M., director of The Chris- tophers, "seems to be due to the fact that anti-Christian elements Churches Prepare To Reenact Sacred Holy Week Drama Parishes Throughout Diocese Will Commemorate The Savior's Passion and Death With Impressive Devotions have swarmed into key posi- tions in every field of human endeavor. These anti-Christ cru- saders are causing hundreds of milions over the earth to have a false outlook on life, to ig- nore their eternal destiny. On the other hand, most Christians, without intending any harm, have remained aloof in their own small worlds, leaving the running of the big world to those who hate Christ or know Him not" The contest which The Christo- phers now announce is part of their aim to bring Christian prin- ciples into the field of communi- CALLING her children to participate with her in the tri- umph of Palm Sunday and then to accompany her on the sorrowful way to Calvary, the Church will re-enact next week the divine drama of man's redemption at the price of Christ's passion and death. CZECH ARCHBISHOP PROTESTS STATE SCHOOL MONOPOLY PRAGLrE(NC) -- An article protesting the proposed seculari- zation of Czech schools has been written by Archbishop Joseph Be- ran of Prague and published in Svobodna Noviny, • independent daily here. The Archbishop re'calls the re- peated assurances of President Eduard " Benes that Catholics would enjoy ,absolute freedom of religion, and declares that news emanating about school projects, tolerating only State Schools, is very disquieting to the Catholic population. A State monopoly of Czech schools, a copy of the practice al- ready forced onto Slovaki,a, the Archbishop asserts, would damage Czechoslovakia's good n a m e abroad. Meanwhile the officials who seized control of the schools in Slovakia, secularizing all Catholic schools and placing them under lay management, are endeavoring hard to preserve the present status qua. In an effort to strengthen their hold on the former Catholic schools these officials have started a campaign to force Slovak school teachers to sign statements saying they are opposed to the re-intro- duction of Catholic and other de- catioh of ideas.

Visit New York, March 26.---Car- dinal Van Preysing, Bishop of Berlin, left by plane for home this morning after five weeks in the United States as guest of the American Hierarchy. In a parting message the Cardinal said that he had been mightily stimulated "by this visit among a free people who freely acknowledge God's "sov- ereignty and sincerely try to love their fellowmen every- where." Since Ash Wednesday, when she bade the faithful to observe the Lenten season of penance and mortification, the Church has worn the garments of sadness. Her liturgy has carried the notes of pain and sorrow. Next week her sorrow will climax in the poignant drama of Good Friday. Palm Sunday ceremonies, at the beginning of Holy week, will of- fer a prelude of joy, a dramatic contrast for the tragedy to come. Blessed palms will be distributed in the churches and glad Hosan- nas will recall Jerusalem's joy at Christ's triumphant entry in the Holy City. Churches throughout the dio- cese announce impressive services for Holy week. In many the Tenebrae service or Office of Darkness will be observed. And all will celebrate, on Holy Thurs- day, the abiding miracle of Christ's love in the Holy ]guchar- ist.

II [ IT IS part of the general confusion of our time to assume that when a man speaks against Communism that he thereby is anti-Russian. It is this confusion which we seek to dissipate, It really ought to be clear to everyone that an idealogy is distinct from a people. The ideology of Nazism has passed, but the German peo- ple survive. In like manner, Rus- sia existed long before Commu- nism came into being, end will continue to exist long after Com- munism has been forgotten. Communism iS so little a part of the Russian people that it has existed only about thirty years in the almost One thousand years Christian history of Russia. This distinction we make be- tween Communism and Russi has its basis in the Christian dis- tinction between the sin and the sinner; one can hate Communism as an evil system, but still love the Communists as creatures made to the image and likeness of God and capable of Divine Re- demption. It is interesting that the Church las never once condenlned Com- munism without at the same time speaking of its affection for Rus- sia. For example Pius XI, on Feb- ruary 2, 1930, wrote on Encyclical entitled The Soviet Campaign Against God, the major portion of which was concerned with prayers for Russia: "We approved and enriched with indulgences the circulatory prayer 'O Saviour of the world, Save Russia,' and again in the course of the last few months two forms of prayer in which the people of Russia are commended to the protection of the sweet wonder worker of Lisieux, St. Theresa of the iInfant Jesus." A later Encyclical directed against Atheistic Communism on the 19th of Mrch 1937, ends with these words: "We pray the Lord to enlighten the Russian people, that they may abandon the slippery path which will precipitate one and all to ruin and catastrophe, and that they recognize that Jesus Christ, Our Lord, is their only Saviour, for there is no other name under heaven given to man whereby we must be saved." , Though the world does not know it, all the prayers said at the end of every low Mass throughout the entire world, are said for the intention of Rus- sla It was in 1980 that the Holy Father ordered that these prayers which up to that point had been said for the settle- ment of the Iteran question, should now be said for the con- version of ItussiL This means that now as ever in the past, the Church is willing to accept the erring into the treas- ury of her souls, but never the error into the treasury of her wisdom. In the light of this dis- tinction we raise our voice in de- fense of Russia, not as some fel- low travellers would do in order] to justify the spreading of evil] germs of Communism through a I seeming love of a nation, but t rather because of the inherent} dignity of a great and holy people. There is a deep seated tradition in Russia that it would one day become very wicked before it would ever become very good. Nineteenth Century Russia which l might be called the twilight of Communism foresaw the terrible upheaval. ,Unlike the Western writers wh were babbling inevitcable progress, the Russian writers were full of foreboding about bourgeois ma- t e r i a I i st i c civilization.

Since Ash Wednesday, when she bade the faithful to observe the Lenten season of penance and mortification, the Church has worn the garments of sadness. Her liturgy has carried the notes of pain and sorrow. Next week her sorrow will climax in the poignant drama of Good Friday. Palm Sunday ceremonies, at the beginning of Holy week, will of- fer a prelude of joy, a dramatic contrast for the tragedy to come. Blessed palms will be distributed in the churches and glad Hosan- nas will recall Jerusalem's joy at Christ's triumphant entry in the Holy City. Churches throughout the dio- cese announce impressive services for Holy week. In many the Tenebrae service or Office of Darkness will be observed.

Visit New York, March 26.---Car- dinal Van Preysing, Bishop of Berlin, left by plane for home this morning after five weeks in the United States as guest of the American Hierarchy. In a parting message the Cardinal said that he had been mightily stimulated "by this visit among a free people who freely acknowledge God's "sov- ereignty and sincerely try to love their fellowmen every- where." Since Ash Wednesday, when she bade the faithful to observe the Lenten season of penance and mortification, the Church has worn the garments of sadness. Her liturgy has carried the notes of pain and sorrow. Next week her sorrow will climax in the poignant drama of Good Friday. Palm Sunday ceremonies, at the beginning of Holy week, will of- fer a prelude of joy, a dramatic contrast for the tragedy to come. Blessed palms will be distributed in the churches and glad Hosan- nas will recall Jerusalem's joy at Christ's triumphant entry in the Holy City. Churches throughout the dio- cese announce impressive services for Holy week. In many the Tenebrae service or Office of Darkness will be observed. And all will celebrate, on Holy Thurs- day, the abiding miracle of Christ's love in the Holy ]guchar- ist. On Good Friday, the faith- ful assembled in their churches, will commemorate the three-hours of Christ's agony and His death upon the Cross. At The Cathedral Holy Week ceremonies will open in St. James Cathedral with the blessing and distribution of palms at the Ii o'clock so]mn fnss on next Sunday.
