41 Vol. 68, No. 26--Seaffle, Wash., Friday, June 25, 1965 $4-.00 per year--10c per copy  !iii i : 16,1tars Should Be ,n Ideal Center' Postconciliar Commission States VATICAN CITY (NC)--The spirit of the tican council's Constitution on the Li. gy demands that in building or renova- ing churches, the main altar be placed at the focal point of the attention of the congregation, but not necessarily in the geographical center. This interpretation is given by the post- conciliar Commission for Implementing the Constitution on the Liturgy in its (May) bulletin, Notitiae. With this issue the commission began publication of brief lanations of recent liturgical documents response to questions asked of the com- qlission secretariat. Asked whether the altar should be placed at the very center of the church, the commission stated that its liturgical mstructi0n of last September "does not speak of the mathematical center of the church" as the only place for the altar. Rather, it said, the altar should be at the so-called "ideal center, central in the sense that the attention of the whole con- gregation of the faithful is spontaneously turned to the altar." The commission expressed agreement with the statement that "the best place for the seat of the celebrant and the ministers is behind the altar, in the apse; lest the altar hide the celebrant and ministers, the seat should be elevated, at least by three steps, so that the people can see them and it will appear that the celebrant truly presides." At the same time, if the tabernacle is in the apse, the "presidential seat" of the celebrant may be placed "at the side of the altar and somewhat elevated." Another solution for the placement of the tabernacle, so that Mass may be cele- brated facing the people, was also pro- vided. The question asked was: "When Mass is celebrated at an altar placed between the main altar and the people, may the Blessed Sacrament be reserved at the main altar, even if the (Continued on Page 2) Reform Mandatory, Liturgist, Says IBALTIMORE (NC)--The keynote speak- her laws, her forms of discipline, her er at the Liturgical Week said here Cath- olics must remember in these days of reform that there is a distinction between the Church and Christ. Father Frank B. Norris SS, professor of systematic theology at St. Patrick's Seminary, Menlo Park, Calif., spoke Monday at the opening general session of the 25th annual "week" sponsored ere by the National Liturgical Confer- The theme of the observance--and of two other "weeks" to follow in August in Portland, Ore., and Chicago--is "Jesus Christ Renews His Church." Father Norris held that it is "manda- tory today for us to speak of the reform of the Church." But he held tha a trend which identifies Christ with the Church it- lf has not disposed Catholics to speak th ease of changes. e emphasized the danger of Catholics unwittiogly worshiping the Church itself, doctrinal formulas, her liturgy or even the Mass. "Whatever may and must be said about our attitude toward these sacred realities," he said, "we cannot give to them the homage due to God alone." Delegates and guests to the assembl were welcomed by Lawrence Cardinal Shehan of Baltimore. He hailed liturgical reform and praised the national Liturgical Conference, whose headquarters are in Washington, D.C., for its efforts to help the nation's Catholics implement the changes in the Church's public worship. He added that "where great care is given in rendering the liturgy of the Church, there we can sense the renewal of spiritual life that is taking place." "However," he said, "where the new liturgy is not carefully and perfectly put on, there it is not having its proper el- !feet." Gift Store Has New Owners Catholic Gifts and Church Goods, Inc., aling in: Seattle with Catholic religious goods for some 27 years, has passed on to new owners. Holding ,the controlling interest in the company, whose well-known store is lo- cated at 609 Union St. in downtown Seat- tle, is the Hunt Family of Seattle and Port- land. New president of the corporation is John c Hedrick, attorney from St. Joseph's rish, Seattle. Joseph Droll becomes e president and general manager. Other corporation officers include Wil- liam P. Hunt, long-time Seattle resident, who is second vice president; Dr. Wallace D. Hunt, former King County health super- imendent, secretary; and James A. Hunt of Portland, treasurer. Hunt, a Seattle native, is head of Port. land's Catholic Book and Supply Co. Louis G. Jeannot, manager of the cor- ration for some years, has resigned to post-graduate work at Marquette Uni- versity in Milwaukee to prepare for a teaching position at Seattle University. Continuing with the firm will be staff members Joseph Mahoney, Joanna Lass, Mary Donohoe, Patricia Donohoe and Jack Conroy. "Policies and services of the com. pany, which for many years have been characterized by a strong book depart- ment, emphasis on good contemporary sacred art and service in the field of catechetical materials, will be contin- ued and strengthened," said Hedrick and Droll. Both executives affirmed that the Cath- olic Gift Store was known for many years "by the creative spirit of service to the Catholic community" as established by its founders--Miss Marie Freeburn, Mrs. Florence Fitzpatrick and Mrs. Mary Bresnahan, the latter associate editor of The Progress. "It is this quality and spirit, served also by Mr. Jeannot, which the new management will seek to further," the pair said. "It is hoped that in time the original title of this firm, 'The Guild,' will again become the name by which is is known." Droll, who is transferring to Seattle to manage the firm, has been with the Port- land company for six years. The Hunts have controlled .Portland's Catholic Book and Church Supply Co. since 1952. Droll, a native of Switzerland and for two years a member of the famed Vatican Swiss Guard, arrived in the US in 1953. Droll emphasized that he will manage the company independently of its Port. land affiliate "with policies to serve best the needs of the Archdiocese of Seattle." Father Hubert Celisi a prison chaplain,in, Brussels, Belgium, is welcomed :on his arrival in New York to serve as "grandfather" at the Bar Mitzvah !(Jewish confirmation) of 13-year-old Norman Wolbrom. The boy and his moer," Mrs." Regina 'Wblrbha: Of JacksdnHeighis,' NW, greeted the pHest. Father Cells sheltered Mrs. W01bmm(then 1'3); artd,her sister and br66r fr6m' the Ngzig '@hen'tlie thrde were ok[haned in Belgium during World War II. Mrs..Wolbrom's parents were killed at the Auschwitz con- centration camp. She said she wanted Father Cells to act as "grandfather" because "my children have no grandparents and he was the last to see my parents." (Religious News Service Photo) Fr. De Pauw Leer NEW YORK (NC)--The Catholic Tra- ditionalist Movement distributed to news- men here a letter by Father Gommar A. De Pauw praising a bishop's criticism of the translation of the Bible being used in US vernacular Masses. Father De Pauw was leader of the movement until April 7 when he dis- associated himself from it at the order of his superior, Lawrence Cardinal She- han of Baltimore. The Belgian-born professor of moral theology at Mount St. Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg, Md., lauded Bishop Robert J. Dwyer of Reno, Nev., who called for improvement in the quality of the trans- lation of the Bible being read in English at Masses. Population Problem VATICAN CITY (NC)--An official of the Vatican Secretariat of State has con- firmed that Pope Paul VI has received letters from two groups of Nobel Prize winners asking him to put the Church be- hind a population control program. One group was made up mainly of British and European prize winners, the other mainly of Americans. Among the reported signers were nine members of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Aging Negleced WASHINGTON (NC)--The secretary of the National Conference of Catholic Char- ities told the Senate Special Committee on Aging that the Economic Opportunity Act "sins by neglect in bypassing . . . the older person." Monsignor Raymond J. Gallagher, tes- tifying before the committee, said the present law "fails in its ability to deal with the totality of the problem of poverty in our society." No Coexlsfence ROME (NC)--Giacomo Cardinal Ler- caro of Bologna has warned here of the danger to the Church and to workers in attempts to bring about an "impossible marriage" between the Marxist and Chris- tian view of society. "The solution of concrete problems, and even before that their interpretation, must necessarily have reference to principles which cannot be shelved. If these prin- ciples, in addition to being false, are also --as in this case--intolerant of any differ- ent attitude, then dialogue is impossible and exposes the truth to falsification." More Priess BELGRADE (NC) -- Over 100 priests were ordained in 1964 and a number of new seminaries have been opened, but there is still a shortage of Catholic clergy in Yugoslavia. Many priests were lost during the war and many others had to leave the country later. In the immediate postwar period there was no possibility of training new priests. Cuba Jails US Baptist Ministers KINGSTON, Jamaica (NC)--Two Amer- ican Baptist missionaries have been sen- tenced to prison terms by the Havana Military Court, according to reports reach- ing here. They have been accused of espionage, counter-revolutionary activities and illegal currency dealings. Rev. Herbert Caudill, 63, of Waynesboro, Ga., was sentenced to 10 years, and his son-in-law, Rev. David Fite, 31, of Omega, Ga., to six years. Both bad been convicted of dealing in black markeet dollars. The Rev. Mr. Fite was acquitted of the espionage charge, but the court made no annmincement on what action it had taken on the same charge against the Rev. Mr. Caudill. They were arrested and tried along with 22 Cubans, most of whom were Baptist ministers. The fate of the others was not immediately reported. Anticipating 10 glorious days of summer at CYO Camp Don Bosco near Carnation is the foursome, among 195 boys opening the camping season Tuesday.

Climate Favorable for Pope Paul's Visit to UN UNITED NATIONS (NC)--Rumors  a possible visit here by Pope Paul VI have aroused not only lively speculation, but also widespread interest and enthusiasm on the part of various delegates, secre- tariat members and representatives of : non-governmental organizations related to the UN. The UN General Assembly's president, Sir Alex Quaison-Sackey of Ghana, who delivered a moving address at the Pacem in Terris convocation last February, was asked at a press conference whether ru- mors of the Pope's visit are true. "I cannot reveal any secret," he said smilingly. This reply is being widely interpreted as affirmative. Although United Nations and Holy See authorities who would be directly con- cerned with a visit of Pope Paul to the UN have not confirmed or commented on such rumors, a particularly favorable climate exists for such a visit. This dates from Pope John's encyclical on peace, Pacem in Terris. This received unprecedented quotations in various UN bodies, and elicited a surge of hope among all actively engaged in searching for peace. From the beginning of Pope Paul's pon- tificate there has been a cordial exchange of greetings and corresponden.ce between the Pope and UN Secretary General U Thant. On July 11, 1963, the Pope received U Thant in private audience and stressed "the very high conception" which the Holy See holds of the UN. The Holy See considers the UN the fruit of a civilization to which the Catholic re- ligion gave the vital principles, the Pope said. He called it "an instrument of brotherhood between nations, which the Holy See has always desired and pro- moted, and hence a brotherhood intended to favor progress and peace among men . . . "The convergence of so many peoples, so many races, so many states in a single organization intended to avert the evils of war a0d to favor the good things of peace,, is a fact which the Holy See considers as corresponding to its con- cept of humanity and included within the area of its spiritual mission in the world." Several references to Pope Paul's ap- peal for peace last December at a press conference in Bombay at the Internation- al Eucharistic Congress were made in the debate of the UN Disarmament Commis- sion, which has concluded its deliberations. The permanent observer of the Holy See to the UN; Msgr. Alberto Giovanetti, last January presented U Thant on the Pope's behalf a beautifully embossed copy of the Bombay appeal, in which the Pope had said: "Would that every nation, thinking 'thoughts of peace and not of affliction and war,' would contribute even a part of its expenditure for arms to a great world fund for the relief of the many problems of nutrition, clothing, shelter and medi. cal care which affect so many peoples*." In accepting the copy of the appeal, U Thant said that the Pontiff's appeal "will always rnain an invaluable source of, inspiration for me and for the organize, tion I serve." Archbishop Martin ft. O'Connor, presi. dent of the Papal Commission for the Corn. munication Media, who will head the Holy See's delegation to the UN's 20th an. niversary ceremonies in San Francisco June 26, is bearing a special message to the convocation from Pope Paul. Ike Changes, Now Favors Birth ,Control Aid Abroad WASHINGTON (NC) -- Former Presi- dent Dwight D. Eisenhower endorsed legislation which would permit the US government to extend birth control aid to foreign countries, reversing the position he maintained while in the White House. The former Chief Executive's views were expressed in a statement filed with a Senate foreign aid subcommittee and made public Tuesday by Sen. Ernest Grueniog of Alaska, chairman. Curtailing the world's population ex- plosion is a key issue to world survival, he said. History "will rightly condemn us" unless "every enlightened government" comes to grips with the population con- trol movement, he added. The former President detailed his shift on the issue of distributing birth control information to foreign governments. "Ten years ago, although aware of some of these growing dangers abroad, I did not then believe it would be the function of the federal government to in- terfere in the social struetures of other nations by using, except by private insti- tuitions, American resources to assist them in partial stabilization of their numbers," Eisenhower said. "I expressed this view publicly but soon abandoned it. After watching and studying results of some of the aid programs of the early '50s, I became convinced that without parallel programs looking to pop. ulation stabilization all that we could do at the very best, would be to maintain rather than improve standards in those countries which need our help." He maintained his stand against dis- pensing birth control aid abroad as late as 1959. In the statement filed with the subcom- mittee, he said dissemination of birth control information, as well as birth con. trol itself, are regarded by some as a moral question and "therefore scarcely a fit subject for federal legislation." "But I cannot help believe the pre- vention of human degradation and star- vation is likewise a moral, as well as a material, obligation resting upon every enlightened government," Eisenhower stated. "If we now ignore the plight of those unborn generations which, becanse of our unreadiness to take any corrective action in controlling population growth, will be denied any expectations beyond abject poverty and suffering, then his- tory will rightly condemn us." JOURNAL OF A SOUL" '1 Will Accept All Willingly' (Eleventh in a series o t 18 articles ex. cerpted tram ']ournal o[ a Soul", book o/ innermost thoughts o t Pope John XXIII. The e,tire 18.part series is brought to you through the courtesy of Ballard Blossom Shop, 2001 NW Market St., Seattle, SU 2.4213.) Turning my thoughts in on myself and on the varied events of my humble life, I must admit that hitherto the Lord has spared me those tribulations which make the service of truth, justice and charity hard and distasteful for so many souls. I have lived through my childhood and youth without feeling the effects of pov- erty, with no anxieties about my family, my studies or situations of danger, such as my military service, for example, at the age of 20, and again during the Great War, from 1919 to 1921. Humble and unpretentious as I know myself to be, I was always warmly wel- comed wherever I went from the seminar- ies of Bergamo and Rome through the 10 years of my life as a priest with my Bish- op in my native city, and from 1921 until now, 1961, that is from Rome and back to Rome again, to the Vatican. O God, how can I thank You for the kindness always shown to me wherever I went in Your name, always in simple obedience, not to do my own will but Yours?

I know that my answer to myself and to the Lord, is always the same: "I will take the Chalice of Sal- vation, and I will call upon the name of the Lord." As I have already indicated in these pages: if and when the "great tribulation befalls me", I must accept it willingly; and if it delays its coming a little longer, I must continue to nourish myself with the Blood of Jesus, with the addition of all those great and little tribulations which the good Lord may send me. The little Psalm 130 has always made, and still makes, a great impression on me: "O Lord, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child is quieted (Continued on Page 4) t " t t
