I0 THE PROGRESS Fr_i_day, July I /752  t I /r  Y Ft)R 7"lIE+ Father Szeman, Archdiocesan Director Rev. Stephen Szeman, Archdiocesan Director SISTER CiTV OF SEATTLE HE other day we had a very pleasant visit from Father Etienne Durecu who is the Port Chaplain in Japan for the Port of Kobe. Father Etienne is also the pastor of Sacred Heart Church in the same town. Kobe. of course, is the Sister City of Seattle. Like Seattle, Kobe is a large port, in fact one of the main ports in Japan. Some 5,000 ships a year go through the port and its facilities. The history of the Catholic Church in this famous port-town, started around 1867 when it was finally opened for foreign trade. Since then the Catholic Churqh has progressed in this area, However, it was and still is a very, very difficult task due to the opposition that was faced by the early Christians. The gov- ernment was quite hostile at first and placed many restrictions upon foreign Christians, As the little group of Christians grew, they constructed many churches in the area. The one main church was finally finished in December of 1923. This is the church of the Sacred Heart. To the Catholic of this area it is a symbol, in a way, of their Catholicity. To all the Catholic strangers who come into port, it is just like a homecoming cele- Iation. Many Seattle seamen can recall going to Mass in this very church, Great credit must be given to the Catholic and mis- sionary priests of this area because it took heroic sacrifices to build a church and make progress here with such a small number of people. The unfortunate thing was that in 1945 dur- ing the war, the Church and the rectory and all the facilities in this area were completely destroyed by our bombers. Even more unfortune was the fact that some of the Fathers were seriously injured and Father FaDe, the pastor, was at that time killed when his church burnt. He and some of his parishioners were kneeling at the altar of Mary when the church was struck. Reconstruction of the famous landmark was began in 1948 and by 1950 the outside walls and the roof were completed, At this point the work had to cease, due to the pressing needs of the people and the fact that they just did not have the funds to carry on. It wasn't until 1954 that the inside of the church was finally worked on. A new rectory was constructed between the years of 1948 and 1949. This rectory serves as a hub of Catholicism in this area. It is a retreat for any priest passing by to take care of the other missions. Father Etienne had very many other interesting things to say. He told us about the port and its facilities, the industries of the area, the growth of the Church in this area, and of course explained to us why it was so difficult for the people of this area to become converts. Several things are holding the con- version of the people back. One of those things is the degree with which the people of the country are being filled with mod- em materialistic philosophy. In the meantime, he stressed how important it would be for Catholics to maintain their position in society and to be able to show the people of the community that they were interested in the community and that they were about to have beautiful churches and maintain them. to have schools and to have high standards. Father thought it would be very wonderful if the people of the Sister City of Kobe would be able to do something special to help them complete their Church and make it a real landmark in this international port-town. We cannot, of course, bring back the priests who have lost their lives in this mission, but we can help to restore once more the House of God. In this way the Catholics iu this area will be strengthened and eneouraged in their faith, and our example will be noted very carefully by the non-Catholics. It is this example that will help to bring others into the Church. Anyone who would be interested in doing anything to hetp restore Sacred Heart Parish in our Sister City can do so by send- ing their offerings to this office. This way we will be able to supply some of the sacred furnishings that are needed for the Church and maybe put some of the windows back that were destroyed. This surely will be a very fitting way to show all that we are interested in our Faith, that we are interested in our Sister City. This landmark of Christianity in a corner of God's vineyard will be our monument to those great men who made the spread of the Faith pos/ible in this area--men like Father Fage who died while spreading the Faith. Cut out this column, pin your sacrifice to it and mail it to Father Szeman, Archdiocesan Director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, 907 Terry, Seattle 4, Washington.

The Court, in an opinion writ- ten by Associate Justice John M. Harlan, held that the Post Office Department erred in bar- ring from the mails three maga- zines aimed at homosexuals. The court thus introduced a significant new element into the field of obscenity law. Rep. Granahan Deplores Ruling On Obscenity WASHINGTON, July 11 (NC)Rep. Kathryn E. Granahan of Pennsyl- vania has charged that a U.S. Supreme Court rul- ing on obscenity in the mails was "an incredible series of judicial rationalizations." The court held June 25 that the Post Office Department erred in barring from the mails three magazines beamed to- ward homosexuals. Justice John M. Harlan, joined by Justice Potter Stew- art, held that, to legally ob- scene, material must be guilty of "patent offensiveness." He said the magazines involved were not.
