Providence Hospital will be the first to effect this forward- lodking conpt in the Pacific Northwest, Sister Gertrude said. In his remarks of welcome, Dr. S. N.

Also, since the Earlier we mentioned priest is to pattern his own life that St. Edward's Semin- after the earnplo of Jesus ary in Kenmore, em- Christ, he must do his very braces the four years of best to acquire the virtues and high school and the first chareeteristios of his exemplar. two years of college of liberal Everything the student does in arts--all this but still much the seminary, then, is devoted , to this spiritual goal.

From the first me- meat of rising to the time for lights out at the end of day, the student lives in constant intimacy with God. Every class, study period, and meal begins and ends with prayer. Every action of the day is consecrated to God, to do Him honor and to help the student prepare for his life as a priest. All these things tend to form a true spiritual atmosphere et St. Edward's, an atmosphere permeated with the Christian virtues of faith, reverence, and hrotherly love. Beside general atmosphere, however, there are a number of spiritual exercises in which all the stu- dents take part and in which they receive particular prepara- tion for their sacred calling. We shall consider three of these. The first is a formal devotion called M e n t a I Prayer. The main purpose of this exercise is to help the student to grow in the knowledge and appreci- ation of the truths of his faith and to put them into practice in his daily life. This type of prayer con. sists in choosing for con- sideration a particular truth about God, or an event from the life of Jesus Christ, or some virtue. The student ponders the subject slowly and prayerfully, making an application of it to his own life and asking God to help him improve himself by put- ting it into practice. Another devotion designed to increase both knowledge and practice of things spiritual is the reading of spiritual books. The most important of these, of course, is the Bible. As a fu- ture preacher of the Word of God, the student hasparticular interest in the Bible, an inter- est cultivated by daily reading and frequent explenatieas of its passages sought out in class and in his own personal medita- tion Other spiritual books in- clude lives of Jesus Christ and the saints, books treating the religious life, and books spe- cifically on the priesthood. The general aim of both Mental Prayer and this type of reading, then, is to in- crease the student's knowl- edge of God and of the things pertaining to God, all of which will form the basis of his work as a priest. Frora this brief sketch, it can be seen that the spiritual pro- gram ia paramount in the train- ing of a student at St, Ed- ward Seminary. 'With Simplicity Of Heart,' Pope Greets Presbyterian Leader O VATICAN CITY, April 1 (Radio (N.C.)"With the simplicity of my heart I thank you for your visit." That was how His H o 1 i n e s s Pope John XXIII greeted the Rt. Rev. Archibald C. Craig, Moderator of the Church of Scotland, when the top Presbyterian leader responded to a prece- dent-shattering invitation to call on the head of the Roman Church. Dr. Craig revealed in a Rome press conference later that his 45-minute meeting with Pope John March 28 had been a cor. dial one. He said that at one point, the conversation "touched upon the matter of peace and, in this respect, Pope John de- clared that 'the peace of the world has two bases: truth and freedom'." Dr. Craig had come to Rome to join in celebrating the 100th anmversary of St. Andrew's Presbyterian church Merch 25. The long-planned trip followed a fortnight's visit to the Holy Land. Last fall, after Dr. Craig had let it be known that he hoped to pay a courtesy call on the Pope, the question was submitted to a special body of the Church of Scotland's general assembly. Despite opposition on the part of some Scottish Calvinists, the report was favorable; the spe- cial committee said that "any invitation from the Pope would be warmly welcomed." The in- vitation to Dr. Craig to visit Pope John was issued through the Secretariat for Promoting Christian U n i t y, one of the preparatory agencies for the ecumenical council. Dr. Craig's meeting with the Pope was described by both s i d e s as a private courtesy visit. As with previous Vatican calls by heads of other Chris- tian denominations, no photo- graphs of the meeting were published and there was no dis- cussion of religious differences. The Pope received Dr. Craig in his study at ll:15 a.m. and conversed with him privately through interpreters. The Vatican City daily news- paper, L'Osservatore Romano, said of the meeting: "His Holiness was pleased to underline the great quali- ties of religiousness, and the tenacious and intelligent in- dustry of the Scottish people among whom there have al- ways been--but especially in our times--illustrious scien- tists to distinguish themselves and merit the attention of the haman family." The paper went on to say that the Pope else called the Moderator's attention to the fact that a Scotsman, William Cardinal Heard, sits in the Col- lege of Cardinals, and t h a t among the pontifical seminaries of Rome "there is a flourishing college of students from that noble nmion." At the conclusion of the audi- ence, two of Dr. Craig's fellow ministers were received by the Pope. They are the Rw. Stuart Louden, chairman of the Church of Scotland's committee on relations abroad, and the Rev. Alexander MacLean, pas- tor of St. Andrew's in Rom. There was an exchange of gifts ttt the conclusion Of hhe meeting. Dr. Craig presented the Pope a silver bookmark embroidered with a celtic mo- tif featuring a cros bearing the image of the sixth.century Apostle to Scotland, St. Co- lumba, The Pope reciprocated with medallions of his pontificate, and bound copies of the acts of the diocesan synod of Rome two years ago and of "The Activities of the Holy See in 1961." In his press conference later, Dr. Craig indicated he had been impressed by Pope John's references to the unity "brethren in Christ." He said the Pope elaborated on this score, and that "when tra. lated, I found this correspond- ed Closely with what I had tried to say to members of St. Andrew's church a couple of days ago." Asked what might result the meeting, Dr. Craig replied, "I don't know what to say," Later in the day, however, he said he anticipated "good re- suits from this visit." He made this remark on visiting Augus- tin Cardinal Bea, S.J., presi- dent of the Secretariat for Pro- moting Christian Unity. The S c o t s Calvinist added that he had been moved by his visits to Rome's ancient Christian shrines, such as the catacombs and the excevatior under St. Peter's Basilica. Dr. Craig was the fourth major non-Catholic leader to see the Pope in less than 16 months. The Most Rev. Geof-., frey Francis Fisher, then h of the 40-million member Any glican Communion, visited Pope John December 2, 1960, becom- ing the first Archbishop of Can- terbury to meet a pope since the Church of England severed its ties with the Holy See 400 years earlier. Like Dr. Craig, Archbishop Fisher stopped Rome after a pilgrimage Holy Land. The Rt. Rev. Arthur Lich- tenburger, Presiding Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States, conferred with the Pope for 40 minutes last November IS while en route to the New Delhi assembly of the World A Council of Churches. i Another American Protestant recei'ed by the Pope was the Rev. Dr. J. H. Jackson of Chi- cago, president o f t h e five. million-member National Bap- tist Convention. He met the Pope December 20, 1961. Changes In Mass Possible (Continued from Page 1) In connection with these re- ports, Vatican circles cite that the press service of the prepa. ratory commission, comment- ing on possible matters under,. discussion during the sesstomi  devoted to the liturgy, call0d attention to the goal .that the lexgest possible n u m b e r of Catholics be able to assist at Mass more fully and dcnoutly. :The press service also noted t b a t The liturgical move- ment of this our age, with it studies concerning the origins and evolution of various parts i of the Mass, has certainly fa- vored a more precise aware.: hess of those additions whlcl  over the centuries ha,,e oh,, fuscated the clarity and en- cumbered the simplicity of: the original rite."
