Explaining t he convention emphasis on Latin America, Thomas P. Coughlan, Serra International president, stated: "In this time of economic and social revolution in Latin Ame- rica, it becomes increasingly important that C a t h o I i c lay leaders from Serfs understand the challenge being met by their fellow Catholics in Latin America. But, understanding is only half of the battle. Serrans must act. They must hear from L a t i n American authorities what can be done by North Americans and o t h e r s. The Church in Latin America is dynamic. The 2,500 people at- tending the Convention must learn from it and help it." Serra is an international or- ganization of Catholic busi- ness and professional men af- filiated with the Pontifical Work for Priestly Vocations. It has as its objectives the fostering of vocations to the priesthood and the furthering of Catholicism. Founded in 1935 in Seattle, Serra has grown to a member- ship of over It,000 in 290 Clubs located in 20 countries. POPE PAUL'S SECOND YEAR i i Peace Efforts Marked. By James C. O'Neill (NCWC Newt Service} VATICAN CITY--An- xiety for the precarious state of world peace beat like a dimly throbbing drum throughout the second year of Pope Paul vrs reign. E ] e c t e d June 21, 1963, his reign is dated as June 30 since that was the day of his corona- tion. In the two years since Pope Paul succeeded P o p John XXIII to the awesome and lonesome office of Vicar of Christ on earth, the 67-year- old Giovanni Batista Montini has made himself a champion of peace among nations and among men and organizations. Constantly in the past year the Pope has spoken and writ- ten on the subject of peace. He has consistently warned the world's leaders of the conse- quences of a new outbreak of war. But if he has sounded warnings, they have been only half heard. For as he himself noted on the feast of Corpus Christi: "We are saddened by the news which comes to us from various parts of the world and by the reports of such sorrowful happenings." Then he went on to pinpoint them: Vietnam, the Congoand the Dominican Republic. Noting that he had received news that a truce in the Do- minican Republic has been con- firmed, he expressed the hope that honorable and constructive negotiations might resolve the problems of that island coun- try. If success is achieved, it will be due partly to the work of the Pope's apostolic nuncio in S a n t o Domingo, Archbishop Emanuele Clarizio, who has Is. bored with the Pope's encour. agement, to bring about agree- ment between opposing sides. In the cause of peace, Pope Paul has talked long and earnestly with many world leaders and their representa- tives such as British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Henry Cabot Lodge, former U.S. ambassador in Vietnam. His Christmas and Easter message to the world repeated insistence on mankind's desire for peace and he made the same theme the bulk of the message of his second encycli. cal, Mense Malo (Month of May), w h i c h he published April 30. His history-making journey to India at the end of 1964 pro- vided Pope Paul with a world. wide platform for his appeal for peace. Repeating the an- cient .plea to convert swords into plowshares. P o p e Paul urged the world's leaders to halt the arms race and devote at least part of the money being poured into armaments to relieving the hunger and misery of many millions of peo- ple. The Indian tflp was a milestone in e history of the papacy. For the first tlma in history a pope traveled halfway round the world to a major non-Christian nation to take part in a Eucharisfie eon=:ress. This trip and the earlier one to the Holy Land set a precedent for Pope Paul and future popes to journey anywhere on earth. In fact, forecasts of the papal journeys have far outstripped actual voyages. During the past iiii i HAVE YOU VISITED THE [ NEW KAUFER STORE? {Hear Junior Boot Shop J l/z Block East of N0rthgate and Glamour-Ella) | I"'., ,,- .. -0,01 year it has been reported that the Pope was to visit the Do- minican Republic, the Philip- pines, Great Britain, the United States and Poland. Even as his second year as Pope closed, the Pope still was reported to be considering the possibilities of going to the United States, specifically to the United Nations to make an- other appeal for world peace, and to Poland to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of Christian- ity in that country. In other fields, too, Pope Paul has worked for peace over the past year. Ecumenically, the most sig- nificant step is the naming of Catholic representatives to work on a ioint commission with the World Council of Churches. The aim of this pilot commission is to ex- plore avenues of cooperation and study between the Cath- olic Church and the WCC, which could a d v a n c e the march toward Christian uni- ty., Though it is only a first step, it is still an important, orac- fEcal approach to the problem of Christian unity, taken at an official level. O t h e r ecumenical gestures brightened the ecumenical hori- zon during the past year, in- cluding an exchange of visits b e t w e e n representatives of Pope Paul and the Greek Or- thodox Patriarch Athenagoras of Constantinople (Istanbul). The Holy See also sprang quickly to the defense of the patriarch when it was reported that Turkish officials, angry at the Greek government over the Cyprus situation, threatened to expel the patriarch from his traditional residence in Istan- bul. To the Orthodox were re- turned three relics of early Eastern saints which have been preserved in Italy for centuries. The relic of the skull of St. Andrew the Apostle was car- ried about St. Peter's basilica during a session of the ecu- menical council, before being returned to the Orthodox Patri- arch of Patras. And the relics of St. Sabbas and St. Titus will be returned to Jerusalem and Crete. Among the most Important accomplishments during the past .year of the Pope's reilen was the promulgation of three maior schemas at the closing of the council on Nov. 21. Most imnortant of these was the Constitution on the Nature of the Church. This document, which includes a definition nf the collegiality of the world's Catholic bishops, is of basic theological importance and its effects will be evident in the develooment of the Church for centuries to come. Also imnortant were the De- cree on Ecumenism, w h i c h gave a high-level, go-ahead light to efforts to achieve Chris- tian unity, and the Decree on the Oriental Churches, which will have particular meaning for the development of new re- lationships between the Eastern rites of the Catholic Church and non-Catholic E a s tar n churches such as the Orthodox. The conclusion of the third session of the c o u n ci I was marred by failure to bring the finished document on religious liberty to the floor for prelimi- nary approval. The Pope acknowledged the claim of a group of council Fathers who maintained the document was a substantially new one and that there was not enough time to study the text before the council closed. However, he assured the Fa- thers that it would be the first matter on the agenda of the fourth and final session. In a dramatic gesture of the unity of the Church, Pope Paul startled the world by expand. ing the college of cardinals to an unprecedented number of 103 members. Among the 27 new cardinals named by him January 25 were three Eastern rite patriarchs, bishops from behind the Iron Curtain and simple parish priests and scho- lars. Pope Paul also set up a new Secretariat for Non-Believers which will seek means of a- proaching the millions of people who profess no faith and ad- here to no church. The new secretariat will con- centrate on the' problem of atheism, a problem for which Pope Paul has shown particular concern. In his first encyclical, Ecclesiam Suam, issued on Au- gust 6, 1964, the Pope devoted a considerable part of his let- ter to atheism, both theoretical and practical, and called it the "most serious problem of our age." In his desire to remove some of the outdated spice. dor which surrounds a pope, Pope Paul quietly ordered that the "flabella" or ornate ostrich fans which used to flank the panel throne during processions be put awav. His t i a r a, made especially for him by hls former archdio- cese of Milan, was contrib- uted to alleviate the world's misery. Moreover, he has not used any other of the Vatican's col- lection of triaras but instead has chosen to wear the miter of a bishop and to carry a crozier. The latter has not been used by popes in recent cen- turies. The Pope's year has been, as it has for everyone, a mix- ture of things. As the Pope himself told one general audi- ence, the Vicar of Christ, too, has his disappointments and frustrations, his joys and com- pensations. Movie Sef Church Given Pries Acfor ORCHID ISLAND, For- mosa (NC) -- A church built as a movie set on this tiny island off the south. east tip of Formosa is now being used regularly as a place of worship by the aboriginal inhabitants, A film company asked Father Alfred Giger, a young Swiss priest of the Bethlehem Mission society, to play the part of a Catholic missioner in a movie being made on the 27-square- mile island. In gratitude for his cooperation the company con- structed a sturdy wood build- ing and donated it to the priest when shooting of the film was completed. Some 800 of the 1,600 Yami tribe aborigines of the island, 40 nautical miles from Taitung, have been converted to Cath- olicism by Father Giger dur- ing the last 10 years. The Yamis, like all abofl- genes of Formosa, are of Malayan stock, and isolated on the island famed for an abundance and variety of or- chids, are the most primitive. They live in semi-under- ground dwellings, the men wearing little more than loin cloths and the women woven skirts, and their staple food is sweet potatoes, fish and seaweed. Episcopal Dialogue Begins WASHINGTON (NC) Repre- sentatives of the Protestant Episcopal Church and of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States held an official but unheralded first meeting here to discuss problems which have hitherto stood in the way of closer relations. The 15 participants in the ini- tial formal conference Tuesday included three bishops repre- senting each church. The Roman Catholic group was headed by Bishop Charles H. Helmsing of Kan- sas City-St. Joseph, head of the subcommission for talks with the Episcopal Church of the Catholic Bishops' Com- mission for Ecumenical M- fairs. His Anglican counterpart was Bishop Donald H. V. Hallock of Milwaukee. The meeting, held at the headquarters of the National Catholic Welfare Conference here, was envisioned as the first of a series of exchanges to take place at least once a year. W h i I e the discussions re- mained general in nature, some specific sore spots in the rela- tions between the two churches were touched on. One was the longstanding Anglican reproach against the Roman Church for its prac- tice of "rebaptizing" condi- tionally Anglicans who be- come Roman Catholics. Epis- copalians generally regard the Roman Catholic practice as a dishonor to the sacra- ment of Baptism. Catholic participants in the m e e t i n g acknowledged that there is no doubt about the validity of the Anglican bap- tismal liturgy. They indicated that the practice of "condition- al baptism" must be brought into conformity with the tradi- tional doctrine of the Church. In the same vein, the Angli- can participants agreed that "confirmed Roman Catholics r e c e i v e d intb the Episcopal Church should in no circum. stances be conditionally con. firmed by Anglican bishops," according to an official release after the meeting. Hiroshima Church Honors .Father Arrupe MADRID (NC) -- In homage to Father Pedro Arrupe S J, newly elected head of the So- ciety of Jesus, a church dedi- cated to St. Ignatius, founder of the society, will be built in Hiroshima with funds collected throughout the world.

A medi- cal doctor as well as a priest, he converted the Jesuit house near Hiroshima into a hospital to help the victims of the first atomic bomb explosion there Aug. 6, 1045. Sisters Maintain Mobile Clinic SEOUL, Korea (NC)--In ad- dition to treating 141,376 pa- tients in their regular clinics during 1964, the Maryknoll Sis- ters in Korea maintained a mobile clinic to care for 4,361 patients in villages and rural areas, xt was reported by Sis- ter M. Augusta Hock, superior. of the Maryknoll Sisters here. CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF SEATTLE JULY 1965 JUNE 1966 FATHER JOHN PALMER CSSR FATHER FREDERICK VICKSTROM CSSR ! FRAFER MICHAEL J.
