R. BARMANN, S.J. BOGOTA, Colombia (NC)--Colombia has become the number one target of the Communists in South America in the opinion of observers here Until last year the top Red target seemed to be neighbor- ing Venezula. But vigorous anti-Communist measures by the government of that oil-rich nation, and the fact that it is cur- rently nejoying unprecedented prosperity, seem to have stopped the Reds there. The reverse is true here in Colombia where, observers say, Communist plans are moving ahead with terrifying speed. There assessment of the situation was echoed in the April 29 statement of the Colombian bishops which called for "a na- tional crusade to save the country." The bishops said the "greatest danger facing the Church and the whole nation . . . is the Communist advance," and added that they know "Colombia is one of the principal objectives of the international Communist movement in Latin America" "Red leaders recruited here and abroad," the bishops de- dared, "are methodically agitating within the universities and among the workers and farmers. Communist guerrillas have been trained outside the country and well known Communists hold responsible positions in various trade unions, student organizations and even in the government." Later, Luis Cardinal Concha of Botoga declared in an ad- dress to the nation that "there are authentic documents on hand proving" that the "activity of guerrillas in Colombia is inspired by the Communists, who want to provoke chaos in order to take over." He added that "Communist leaders themselves have ad- mitted being the promoters of these guerrillas." The Communists got their first real foothold in Colombia during the political civil war of 1948.1953. With the assassination of the popular Liberal party leader, Jorge Elieeer Gaitan, in 1948 during the Pan-American Conference in Botoga, open warfare between Liberal and Conservative party guerrillas broke out. The Communists infiltrated the guerrilla bands and kept the conflict going for five years. In 1953, the army under Gen. Gustavo Rojas Pinilla seized power but was unable to clear out the "bandits" Communists and became entrenched in their moun- tain hideaways. Five years later the national truce between the warring political parties failed to break up the by then inde- pendent guerrillas. Some of the bands really were just bandits, but others were Communist underground. Seminary Site Of Mary Day Following a tradition of 29 years, the Most Rev- erend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattle, has extended an invitation to the faithful of the Archdio- cese to gather at St. Edward's Seminary, Kenmore, Sunday, May 16, to pay public tribute to Mary, Our Blessed Mother. The Archbishop will preside at the ceremonies which will begin at 3 p.m. with a procession to honor the Mother of God. The annual "Mary Day" has been attended by increasing numbers of people from all parts of the area. All ceremonies take place out of doors on the beautiful campus of St Edward's Seminary. In extending his invitation to the clergy, Religious and la!ty, Archbishop Connolly referred to the second encychcaP of Pope Paul VI, "The Month of May." The eneyelicai, published in full in last week's Progress called for increased prayers to Mary during the Month of May for the Church and for world peace since "the present hour is especially grave." In his official invitation which was published in The Progress of May 7 and read at all Masses Sunday, May 9, the Arch- bishop says: Annually during the month of May, we formally assemble at St. Edward's Seminary to do honor to the Blessed Mother of God, as a family, to implore her gracious intercession for the favor of a just and lasting peace. We beg her aid in behalf of the cause of peace for the direction and guidance of those who seek peace in otlr name." Father Philip Corboy, pastor of St. Margaret's Parish, will be celebrant of the solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Father John Horan, pastor of St. Plus X Parish, Mountlake Ter- race, and Father Gerald L. Brown of St. Edward's Seminary, will be deacon and subdeacon, respectively. Chaplains to the Archbishop will be Father William E. Gallagher, pastor of St. Luke's Parish, and Father John P. Doherty, Archdiocesan Direc- tor of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. Father Howard Lavelle, pastor of St. Louise Parish, Belle- vue, will preach the sermon. Reciting the Rosary and singing Marian hymns, marchers will proceed around the grounds of the seminary then advance to the outdoor altar in front of the main entrance of the seminary. Children of parishes of the Archdiocese in school uniforms and carrying school banners will take part in the procession which will include Sisters, major and minor seminarians, altar boys, First Communicants and Boy Scouts. , Climax of the procession will be the crowning of the sta- tue of the Blessed Virgin by children of St. Margaret's School, Seattle.

JOHN QUIGG WITH HER PRIEST.SON Teens', . Surprise from Ireland By Joyce DeSoto EVERETTMore than 100 teen-agersmembers of St. Mary Magdalen's CYO Teen Clubkept a sec- ret for three months from the parish's priest youth director, Father Harold Quigg. They brought Father a Mother's Day gift all the way from Ireland that "completely surprised and shook" him--his mother, Mrs. John Quigg. It took a lot of work to fly Mrs. Quigg to see the eldest of her 11 children. The youths washed scores of cars, collected truckloads, of bottles, held dances and gave an "Around the World"show. For every dollar collected they raised another dollar for the parish and were able to put a sound system in the school hall. Last Saturday night at the CYO's annual Parent's Night the "gift" was presented to Father. Describing just how it all happened, Father Quigg said, "I knew the theme for the dinner would be Irish. We planned it along with the year's CYO events last Christmas. One year we had a Hawaiian theme, another Italian so I thought nothing of it. "So at the dinner I couldn't understand why Bob Hageman, CYO president, wanted me up on the stage. I didn't have any- thing to say until later on. "Bob said, 'We have a gift for you. Just a moment while I get it for you.' "Everyone around the tables looked up at me and started elapping. I was facing front and didn't see anything. Then there she was coming over the castle drawbridge the kids had made. And 1 was completely surprised. Imagine a whole parish know- ing and I didn't have the smallest notion." There are some 700 families in the South Everett parish. Father said the teen-agers were taken by surprise too. They expected, he said, "a gray-haired little old Irish lady with a cane. And she looks five years younger than when I saw her five years ago." Father started the parish CYO when he came to St. Mag- dalen's toassist Father William Lane, pastor. Five years later he can't say enough good things about the CYO teen-agers. "Their enthusiasm never falters. They worked twice as hard to bring my mother over and work for the parish as well. In (Continued on Page 3) Pope Paul Urges A United Europe VATICAN CITY (NC)Pope Paul VI again voiced his support for a united Europe during an official aud- ience for Luxembourg's royal couple. Speaking in French, the Pope told Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte that their country has special importance because of "the role which its geographic location and its peaceful char- acter have led it to play at the international level. 'By receiving on its soil one of the oldest and most notable of the European communitiesv--the European Coal and Steel Community--the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has contributed its part to the fulfillment of a task which is dif- ficult but which we regard as most useful for the common good: the construction of a united Europe." The Pope also referred to the coming celebration of the 300th' anniversary of the consecration of Luxembourg to Mary, Consoler of the Mflicted. He said: "She whom your ancestors chose then as their 'very loving protector and perpetual patron' has not ceased to surround with her maternal protection her sons of Luxembourg. And they on their part have always been disposed to offer her throughout the centuries the homage of their love, supplications and wishes," Pope Paul and the royal couple exchanged gifts during the audience May 6. ' JOURNAL OF A SOUL '1 am Poor I Mean to Remain Poor' (Fifth in a series oj 18 articles excerpted jrom "Journal o/ a Soul," the diaries o] the late Pope John XXIH. These lines were written in 1950 and 1952 when the ]uture Pope was Papal Representative in France. The entire 18.part series is brought to you through the cour- tesy o[ the Ballard Blossom Shop, 2001 NW Market St., Seattle, SU 2.4213.) HEN one is nearly seventy, one cannot be sure of the future. 'The years of our life are three score and ten, and even if we are strong enough to reach the age of eighty, yet these years are but toil and vanity; they are soon passed and we also pass away.' So it is no use nursing any illusions: I must make myself familiar with the thought of the end, not with dismay which saps the will but with confidence, which preserves our enthusiasm for living, working and serving. Some time ago I resolved to bear constantly in mind this reverent expectation of death, this joy which ought to be my soul's last happiness when it departs from this life. I need not be- come wearisome to others by speaking frequently of this; but I must always think of it, because the consideration of death, the judieium mortis, when it has become a familiar thought, is good and useful for the mortification of vanity and for infusing into evething a sense of moderation and calm. As regards temporal matters, I will revise my will once more. I am poor, thank.God, and I mean to die poor As for my soul, I shall try to make the flame burn more brightly, making the most of the time that remains as it passes more swiftly away. Therefore, total detachment from the things of this world, dignities, honours and things that are precious in themselves or greatly prized. There are some who, to flatter me, speak of the Cardinalate. Nothing here of any interest to me. I repeat what I have already (Continued on Page 6)
