Nuns Hospital Plan Supported FAIRBANKS, Alaska, July 10 (NC)A news- paper here has called for support of a wi.dely dis- cussed plan that would enable a nuns' community to purchase land for construction of a hospital in Fairbanks. The proposed sale of a 20- acre tract of land to the Sisters of Charity of Provi- dence for construction of a new hospital has been dis- land or return the land to the city. The Fairbanks Daily News- Miner, self-styled "independent newspaper," said in an edi- torial: "Favorable action on the proposed city ordinance to sell land to the Sisters of Char- ity for a new hospital will be a benefit to the entire com- munity . . . Furthermore, the Sisters are the only local group capable of arranging the fi- nancing of the needed institu- cussed at length at City Coun- cil sessions. The hospital would replace the 50-year-old St. Joseph's Hospital conducted by the Sisters of Charity. Caldwell F. Corrigan, attor- ney for the nuns' community, said in a letter to the council that he objects to certain nega- tive restrictions on future use of the property, and a provi- sion hat under certain condi- tions the property could revert to the city. City Attorney Barry Jack- son insisted on inclusion of a clause stating that the nuns must build a hospital on the tion." The newspaper explained that the nuns' community, "through foundations, con- tributions and other resour- ces, will be able to qualify for a loan and Federal-State matching funds," but that "the Community Hospital As- sociation does not appear to have this capability." "In fact, if the project is not sponsored by the present (St. Joseph's) hospital," said the newspaper, "it seems un- likely that any new hospital will be built at all--at least not within the next few years." Encyclical Asks Penance In Preparation For Council By James C. O'Neill VATICAN CITY, July 11 (N.C.)H Holiness Pope John XXIII has is- sued an encyclical calling for the practice of pen- ance by the world's Catholics in preparation for the coming ecumenical council. In the seventh encyclical of his reign, entitled Paenitentiam Agere (To Do Penance), Pope John also called on the world's bishops to institute a solemn novena in honor of the Holy Spirit to invoke the blessings of divine grace on the Fathers of the council. The encyclical was made public July 5, but was dated July 1, the feast of the Most New Office For Rome Vicariae ROME, July 7 (NC)-- The offices of the Rome vicariate will shortly be transferred to new quar- ters to relieve the over- crowding which now hampers the routine office work of a diocese with almost three mil- lion people. The new offices will be tem- porarily located in the Palace of St. Callistus, formerly the headquarters for six of the Vatican's sacred congregations which administer the affairs of ille Church. The congregations are now housed in two office b:ildings adjoining St. Peter's Square. The move to the former home of the congregations, however, is only a temporary one. On June 24, His Holiness Pope John XXIII announced his in- tention to unite all of the Ro- man diocesan offices under the ample roof of the Lateran Pal- ace, one-time home of the popes which today houses lit- tle more than a little-visited museum. The reason that the vice. riate will move twice is that the St. Callistus building has already served as an office building and needs only mi- nor alterations to serve the needs of the vicariate. A plan to adapt the Lateran Palace for office space is be- ing drawn up but it will take months before it is completed and will require large expenses which the Church today pre. fers to concentrate on prep- aration for the forthcoming Second Vatican Council. qhe vicariate's present build- ing is an ancient dark struc- ture, located in the most con- gested part of the city. AI- thoueh it could handle the pre- ;ar requirements of a popula- tion of about 800,000, it cannot today accommodate itself to the demands of almost three million people. 731 Attend Nocturnal Vigil Nocturnal vigils on the eve of the first Saturday of July attracted a total of 731 persons in St. James Cathdral, Seattle, and St. Patrick Church, Ta- coma.

Its Latin text contains about 3,500 words. The Pope stressed that Christ explicitly taught the need for the practice of penance and that the Church has always considered it . indispensable "for the perfection of its sons and its better future." The Pontiff recalled that in the document convoking the ecumenical council, he had urged all Catholics to prepare for it by prayer, the practice of the normal Chris- tian virtues and voluntary mortification. The encyclical pointed out that "if we consult the books of the Old and New Testa- ments, we shall notice that every occasion of a more solemn encounter between God and humanity--to express Ourselves in human terms-- has always been preceded by a more persuasive reminder to pray and to do penance." Emphasizes Penance Noting that Moses, the Pro- phets and the Apostles all em- phasized the need for penance, the encyclical declared: "It is the duty and need of all Christians to do violence to themselves, either to drive away their own spiritual en mies or to preserve their bap- tismal innocence, or to renew a life of grace that has been lost by transgressing the di- vine percepts . . . "The Church, beloved spouse of the Divine Saviour, has always remained in it- self holy and immaculate by means of the Faith which en- lightens it, of the sacraments which sanctif it, the laws which govern it and the many members who Morn it with the beauty of heroic virtues. "But there are also deaf chil- dren who, forgetful of their vocation and of their election, mar this interior heavenly beauty within themselves and whose lives do not reflect the divine likeness of Jesus Christ." Follows Tradition After pointing out that the popes of the past have recom- mended the special practice of penance on the eve of ecu- menical councils, Pope John mentioned specific practices that can be followed through- out the world. First, he urged the world's bishops to institute a solemn novena of prayer to the Holy Spirit that the coun- cil Fathers may be showered with heavenly gifts and grace. He added that a plenary indulgence could be attached to this novena to be gained by everyone taking part in it under the usual conditions Moreover, the Pope said, "it will also be fitting to organ- ize in individual dioceses a propitiatory penitential func- tion. This will be a fervent in. vitation, whieh will be accom- panied by special series of ser- mons, to perform works of mercy and to practice penance by means of which the faithful will seek to propitiate A1- (Continued on Page 2) Pontiff Calls Sisters On U.S. Tour BISHOP Peter Dory of We, Ghana, West Africa, is tour- ing the U.S. looking for help for his two pet projects; an experimental farm and a new minor seminary.

Will Attend Council: Anglican Observers Named LONDON, July 11 (Ra- dio, NC)The Archbish- op of Canterbury an- nounced the appointment of three Anglican church- men to serve as "delegate ob- servers" of the 40-million mem- ber Anglican Communion at the Second Vatican Council. The clergymen who will at- tend the Catholic council are the Right Rev. John R. H. Moorman, Anglican Bishop of Ripen, England; the Rev. Fred- erick C. Grant of New York, former president of the Prot- estant Episcopal Church's Sea- bury-Western Theological Sem- inary at Evanston, I11., and the Van. Charles de Soysa, Archdeacon of Colombo, Cey- lon. The Most Rev. Arthur Mi- chael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, Primate of All England and top spiritual leader of the Angliean Com- munion, disclosed the ap- peintments July 5 at a Church of England assembly here. He said at the same time that "deep doctrinal differ- ences" between the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches do not stand in the way of "the call that comes to all Chris. tians to pray for the forthcom- ing Vatican council that it may by God's blessing serve the cause of Christendom in truth and righteousness." Archbishop Ramsay said in his statement to the Church assembly: "It is fitting that we of the Anglican Communion should accept this invitation from our fellow Christians in the Roman Catholic Church, In so wide a fellowship as ours, embracing in addition to England 17 independent prov- inces all over the world, it has not been easy to work out who should be these ob- servers. Archbishop Ramsey's state- ment surprised the Church of England assembly and was frequently interrupted by ap- plause. The warmest applause sounded when the Archbishop said: "It is fitting that we of the Anglican Communion should accept this invitation from our fellow Christians in the Roman Catholi, ";hurch." To Greater Sanctity By James I. Tueek word of comfort especially to cloistered nuns for whom 'Sis- ter Poverty' often becomes 'Sis- ter Destitution.' Jesus, the Son of God who became poor, will come to comfort you. Mean- while, in His name, We extend Our own hand on your behalf to your fellow Sisters who are in more secure economic con- ditions and to generous bene- factors. "In this respect We also encourage similar undertak- ings of the federations of cloistered convents affiliated with the Sacred Congrega- tion of Religious." Preparations for the council, VATICAN CITY, July 11 (NC)  His Holiness Pope John XXIII has called on the world's Sis- ters to lead a life of greater sanctity to assure the success of the coming ecum- enical council. The Pope's call came in .a 4,000-word letter published July 7 in which the Pope detailed the ways to greater perfection for women Religious in their life of prayer, example and apostolate. Although the papal document was described Simply as a let- ter, its length, content and im- portance placed it on a par with the encyclical, Sacerdotii Nostri Primordia, which Pope John issued on the priesthood in August, 1959. References to the coming council were contained only in the introductory paragraphs of the letter, in which the Pope stated that the council is "a solemn hour for the history of the Church" and that it de- mands a great spiritual re- surgence among all Catholics. He had already made appeals to the clergy and laity, the Pontiff said, and now he wished to summon the world's women Religious to prepare them- selves spiritually for the coun- cil. He stated: "It is natural that in this atmosphere of intense prep- aration those who have of. fered themselves completely to God and who have become familiar with the excercise of prayer and the most fervent the Pope went on, require that charity s h o u I d distinguish consecrated souls "reconsider themselves." with renewed fervor the com. The rest of the letter con- tains practical counsels on the spiritual life of women Religi- ous. In regard to destitute clois- tered nuns, the Pontiff said: "We should like to direct a mitments of their vocations." This, he continued, will produce at the proper time "a prompt and .generous response to the decisions of the council." Therefore, the Pope said, (Continued on Page 2) rdinal A JOB WELL DONE MRS.

The 67-year-old former Apostolic Delegate to Canada died July 7 after suffering a heart attack. His death leaves membership in the Sacred Col- lege of Cardinals at 86, includ- ing 29 Italians. Death came to the Cardinal less than four months after he had been made a Prince of the Church by His Holiness Pope John XXIII at the con- sistory of March 19. At the time of his elevation he was serving as Apostolic Nuncio to Portugal. He received his Red Hat, the traditional symbol of a cardinal's rank, from the Pope only in late May.

Thomas Cardinal Tien, S.V.D., said he believes the uprising will stem from the extremely poor conditions under which the Chinese now are living. He said the conditions are getting worse, rather than improving. He expressed hope the uprising will come in the near future. The 72-year-old Red exiled Archbishop of Peking estimated it would take the Communists 20 to 40 years to wipe out the Church in China. He predicted the Reds will fall from power ....... erected the new Dio- within that time. Cardinal Tien, who is Apostolic Administrator of the Taipei, Formosa, archdiocese, said he looks for no change in the atti- tude of the Chinese Communists--merely a switch in tactics. The Red aim in China is to stamp out religion, but the Chinese are strong in spirit, he said. "The more they are persecuted, the stronger they become," he observed. on the feast of SS. Peter and Paul June 30. From Lecce he came here to visit his birth- place. (At the Vatican, Pope John, on receiving news of the Cardinal's death, im- mediately gave instructions for a message of condolence to be sent to members of the Cardinal's family and then went to hls private chapel to pray [or the repose of the Cardinal's soul.) During 39 years in the papal diplomatic c o r p s, Cardinal Panico served the Holy See in eight countries. He visited evcry Canadian cese of St. Catherines in On- tario, three new Catholic uni- versities and five seminaries. On the silver jubilee of his elevation to the episcopacy, in 1960, he received a high dec- oration f r o m Portugal, the Grand Cross of the Order of Infante Henrique.
