10--THE PROGRESS Friday, March 30, 1962 SOCIETY FOR THE Rev. Stephen Szeman, Archdiocesan Director 907 Terry Avenue, Seattle 4Telephone MAin 2.8880 REBIRTH In "GREEn HELL" OR three days bands played, people danced in the streets, and baskets of exotLc flowers overflowed the small Maryknoll rectory in the Bolivian jungle. No, this wasn't a typical fiesta  but rather, a spontaneous, jubilant demonstration by the people of "Green Hell" at the news that their "Gringo" priest had been named a Bishop. In an interview here, while prepa'ring to return to his Bolivian mission following his cunsecratioh on March 7 in his hometown of San Francisco, Bishop Thomas P. Collins, M.M., compared the celebration that rocked his Bolivian mission to that of a "block party" in the wake of V-J Day. "The people interpreted the announcement as a triumph for the home team," Bishop Collins said, "and they went all out to show their appreciation to the Holy Father for honoring their remote parish at the headwaters of the Amazon." But the husky, 45-year-old bishop was quick to recall a ftr more somber, depressing reception 19 years ago--marking the arrival of Maryknollers in the Panda Vicariate of Northeastern Bolivia. Complete indifference greeted the American missioners in 1942, he said. Very few people attended weekly Mass, and less received the sacraments; men were openly hostile to the presence of the "Gringo" priests; no couples were married in the Church; concubinage was commonplace. "Although the majority of the people were' Catholic by birth and baptism, few practiced their religion," explained Bishop Collins. "But actually, it's" unfair to place the blame entirely on the people. The fact is that for generations there simply were not enough priests to care for their spiritual needs." To combat this massive spiritual apathy based up fear and ignorance, the Maryknullers established parish schools, adult education courses, clinics and a hospital. Priests were sent up the treacherous jungle rivers in power launches to administer to the forgotten rubber-workers in remote baraccas. "Once our people realized we worked mainly among the poor, their attitude began to change," said Bishop Collins. "Hostility gave way to co-operation. Every person insisted we accept some form of payment for every service rendered. School children brought a few dozen eggs, or a couple of shaggy chickens, as tuition. Many a medical bill was paid for with a young suckling. But the important thing was that in this way the people maintained their self-respect." Today, the "Gringo" padres are respected and loved, ac- cording tu the bishop. Apathy and indifference have been re- placed by enthusiasm for any parish project. The men are now the backbone of the parishes. Young couples insist upon the Nuptial Mass at their weddings, and regard concubirmge as a spiritual and social stigma. The river parishes rank among the most generous in all of Bolivia. The Panda Vicariate, a sprawling region along the Amezon headwaters, is about the size of the State of Kentucky. As the Vicar Apostolic of the Panda, Bishop Collins is responsible for the direction of 25 Maryknollers working in the 40,000 square mile jungle area. He is expected to return to his mission in Riberalta, the end of this month. Spanish Nuns Impressed With U.S. Spirituality WINTERS, Calif. (N C) -- A group of Spanish nuns, f i r s t members of their community to be assigned to the U.S., have reported themselves favorably impressed with signs of spiri- tuality in America. The four nuns, members of the Missionary Discalced Car- melites from Barcelona, Spain, came here to do catechefical work among the Spanish-speak- ing in this area. Mother Bertha of the Divine Heart, superior of the group, said the nuns had come to the United States with "an image of a more materialistic society in this country." Instead, she said, they found religious "f e r v o r" among Catholics. The nuns said they were particularly impressed by the heavy attendance at church and the widespread re- ception of Holy Communion. The Missionary Discalced Car- melites were founded in 1860. The community now has 1,964 m e m h e ' s in Europe, Latin America, Cariada, the Philip- pines and India.

It was the second award for Mr. Day, the first being a scroll presented in 1960 in recog- nition of his maintainance of a high moral standard in his profession. Shown with Mr. Day is Rev. Joseph McInerney, director of the shrine and Frank Zimmer, chairman of the shrine committee. Mr. Day is appearing in a Vancouver nightclub. Defends Bishops' Views On U.S. School Aid Issue "This is not true," he said. "The Bishops were not respon- sible for asking for Federal aid. They did not oppose Fed- eral aid. But they did oppose gratuitous giving. They said Federal aid should be distrib- uted on a basis of need and that it should be non-discrimi- natory. "They said that if discrimi- nation against six million non-publie school children were written into the pro- gram they would oppose such discrimination," he contin- ued. "Those who wrote a discrim- inatory bill and those who would not see the justice of our position are responsible for the defeat of the program NEWARK, N.J., March 28 (NC)Archbishop Thomas A. Boland of Newark defended the American Hi, erarchy against charges that it was re- sponsible for the defeat of pro- grams to provide federal aid to education. Speaking at the first annual Conference on the Lay Aposto- late here, the Archbishop said there has been a great deal of "misunderstanding" regarding the sole of the Church. It has been charged, he declared, that the Bishops "disrupted a plan engineered by the NEA (Na- tional Education Association)" tu provide Federal aid tu edu- cation. Activities Calendar to provide Federal aid for edu- cation. Not the Bishops." The Archbishop add ed-- "Catholics are full citizens. When we ask for what should be ours by right, we should be listened to. We should not be relegated tu a secondary posi- tion." The conference here was sponsored by the Archdioce- san Council of Catholic Men, which has been reorganized in Newark by Archbishop Be- land. Archbishop Buland cited the controversy over aid to edu- cation to point up the need for a well-organized, unified laity. He urged a dual program: (1) a striving for personal sanc- tification and (2) study. In the latter regard, he said: "We cannot represent the Major events sponsored by Catholic organizations are listed here. The purpose of the calendar is to aid in avoiding conflict of dates in scheduling events. List- ings should be sent to The Progress i n writing.

Asks Film Regulation By Industry NEW YORK, March 26 (NC)An official of the National Legion of Decency w a r n e d here that if the film industry refuses to regulate its product the public will be inclined to ask for legislation against ob- jectionable movies. Msgr. Thomas F. Little, ex- ecutive secretary of the legion, made the statement in a lec- ture March 26 at Fordham University's School of General Studies. He noted that in a statement issued last year the Roman Catholic Episcopal Committee for Motion Pictures, Radio and Television said that if volun- tary classification of films is rejected by Hollywood, then public opinion would demand mandatory classification by the states. Msgr. Little said that some progress t o w a r d voluntary classification "has been made, especially through the efforts of the Theatre Owners of America."
