Friday, Sap. 24, 1965 THE PROGRESS---3 Archbishop Comments on Frank Council Discussion (Continued from Page 1) nored during the week at times and several speakers, cardinals and patriarchs among them, got the gong for overstepping the time allotted to them. The Pope is eminently fair and impartial in these matters. In his opening 45 minute address, he did not allude to a single schema or point of deliberation to be dis- cussed in this fourth session for the reason, as he stated himself, that his remarks might be misconstrued as favoring or rejecting this or that item on the agenda. Yesterday, we had the long awaited showdown on the docu- ment on religious liberty. Rumors were rife during the past few days that a vote might be taken in the council as to whether or not the discussion was to continue, that the only vote the con- servatives were interested in would be hdld to return the text to the commission, that the conservatives saw the handwriting on the wall and would maneuver to prevent any vote that might indicate a successful outcome to the controversy, successful for the progressives, that is, that the latter were ready to force a vote to end discussion because there was so much repetition in the arguments presented for and against the measure, that they also wanted a vote to approve the text in general as pre- sented which of itself would be tantamount to victory for the schema. Some of the rumors had some basis in fact for yesterday morning, despite a last-ditch attempt by the conservatives to block a vote on this historical document declaring the right of all men to religious liberty, two votes were held. A rising vote of approval was given to the proposition to end debate on the schema and then a secret ballot was taken on a proposition indicating approval in general of the text of the schema. This latter issue resulted in an overwhelming victory for the council liberals or progressives who voted approval of the document, 1997 to 224. It was said that the Holy Father intervened at the last minute to prevent the the council coordinating committee from postponing the vote in question but who knows? At any rate, history was made in the council yesterday and the impact of this bit,of legislation will be felt around the world, in all quarters for many years to come. The text states that no man may be coerced in religious matters against his beliefs and that no man may be prevented from worshipping according to his beliefs. In the final analysis, the voting showed that the Fathers were for the document almost nine to one. Those who were dedicated in their opposition were fully aware of the heological overtones that accompanied the schema and that is all that they could see. They were mainly upholding the Church's stand over the centuries against re- ligious indifference and laicism, if you will. It was not that they were intolerant of other's beliefs and practices. The terms "lib- eral" or "progressive" or "conservative" are used here in a rather loose sense, merely for the purpose of designating the two sides to the controversy. The full text of the declaration on religious liberty will not see the light of day until it has been revised and corrected according to the suggestions and recommendations submitted by the Fathers of the council during the past week, and voted upon. It was a very fruitful series of congregations during these past few days and the results will probably send John Cegley and his associated propllets of doom back to their beer mugs. This particular master of tergiversation who is the re- ligious editor of the New York Times had a particularly rough article on Pope Paul VI in the Paris or International Edition of the Times last week-end. Nothing pleased him about the Pope and he didn't have a good word to say about him. He paints him as slow, indecisive, timid, mysterious, an unmitigated traditionalist, a tool of the Roman Curia, etc., etc. All this comes about because the Pope did not follow the desires of Cogiey, Novak, Kaiser and others of that ilk, clerical and lay, and force a vote on the question of religious liberty and on the statement clearing the Jews from the ancient charge of deicide during the third session of the council. This crowd is as intolerant and inflexible as any lot of dyed-in-the-wool Com- munists. He predicts that the wariness and nervous hesitancy of the Pope will wear off on the bishops and that, as a consequence, little or nothing of a progressive nature will be accomplished during the session. Well, we shall see. Yesterday we began discussion on the pastoral constitution on the Church in the world of today, comprising 118 pages, that could very well take us into November. It will be very in- teresting to hear what the Fathers from different parts of the world have to say about the Church's role in their respective areas. Voting continues on the dogmatic constitution on revela- tion and the more than fifteen votes taken so far indicate prac- tically unanimous approval for the constitution and all its parts. Votes will be taken next week on the decree on the apostolate of the laity. These items were all discussed at length last year. Potpourri during the past week: my social life picked up considerably fez I entertained the Ray. Thomas McEnnis, pastor of St. Bernadette's parish in Seattle and the Rev. Jarlath Henaghan, one of the head curates in St. James Cathedral par- ish, Seattle. I was able to get them both into the council cham- bers for the celebration of our daily Mass and a portion oI the council proceedings. It makes quite a story. Mrs. Lena Cristopher, a neighbor of mine at Spring and Boron and a daily attendant and communicant at Mass in the chapel of my home, was in Rome for a few days on tour over the week-end. It was pleasant to be able to swap news with her at dinner here at the Flora. I also met Miss Lauri Lei Thead who stayed at the Flora for a few days on her round-the-world jaunt. She is a graduate of the University of Colorado and a staunch Seattleite. Rome is becoming a safer place for the tourist according to a recent report in the Daily American which should be good news for the bishop of Dodge City, with or without the help of Matt Dillon, et al. The police carried out a special campaign to protect visitors and the report showed that 260 hotels, restau- rants and bars were fined for not posting proper price lists or maintaining proper health standards, with 22 temporarily closed. Two hundred and ten peddlers were fined for working without licenses and victimizing tourists in such places as the Coliseum, etc. One hundred and sixtyJive persons, criminals and others of questionable virtue were ordered returned to their native villages. So much for that. Your correspondent was deprived of one of his feast days today, an Ember Day and the first day of fall. It should have been the Feast of St. Thomas of Villanova. My good mother used to claim that he was one of my patrons, Thomas the Villain, yet. Today, the Daily American carried a news item to the ef- fect that the Cardinal Archbishop of Boston would be leaving Rome soon to undergo serious surgery at home. The home town papers became somewhat alarmed and cabled the cardinal's doctor who is presently in Rome and the latter wired back that the cardinal was in excellent health. So some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed. The traffic situation here in central Rome has gone from bad to worse. There are, according to the license numbers on the cars, over 200,000 more cars on the streets than there were two years ago, the same number of streets, same dimensions, etc. The Fiat Company has put out a cute little number, a beetle-like vehicle called the Nuova 500. There are literally thousands of these tin cans running around the streets, all in the hands of the well- known Italian kamikazi driver. A six way intersection, of which there are plenty here, would remind one of the old dodge-era rides at a seaside resort. This new car sells for a thousand dol- lars, with liberal credit extended but no insurance. I forgot to mention in last week's communique that I had a delightful trip from Seattle to Rome, flying united to New York, where I officiated at the Nuptial Mass of a cousin of mine, and Irish International Air Lines to Shannon. flying the St. Brigid, blessed, I believe, by His Excellency, Bishop Gill, some few years ago. Flying in the St. Patrick, the first Boeing Irish jet, which I blessed myself, would have been too great a challenge. I was happy to, spend a few days here and there in Holy Ireland, visiting the great majority of my more than a hundred first and second cousins. A visit to Ireland is always refreshing and I feel perfectly at home with my own. We are a stout, hardy, resolute and humorous lot. I say this in all humility, of course. I also met Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Me.Ennis and congratu- lated them on the celebration recently of their golden wedding anniversary. At Lourdes Hospital in Droghedan, while visiting a few pa- tients, I was able to see the very capable and personable superior and superintendent of that tremendous institution, Sis- ter Jude of the Medical Missionaries of Mary, the sister of Father 3ohn Walsh, pastor of St. Monica's Church on Mercer Island. She was supervising the construction (SSTC) of 150 bed addition to her hospital. I also met Mother Mary Martin, the foundress of this community. The idea for the Medical Mission. aries was born in Nigeria in West Africa. It assumed definite shape in Dublin over a few years and it was formally established in Nigeria in 1937. The community already has over 450 mem- bers and it is represented in Ireland, the United States, Italy and in more than a dozen countries in Africa. It is one of the outstanding missionary foundations of the Twentieth Century. Mother Mary is a remarkable woman, sharp, pious, capable, efficient and humorous, of course. We flew to Rome via Lourdes on one of the new British BAC-111 planes. It resembles the French Naravelle somewhat, though it carries fewer passengers. There are two engine pods mounted one on each side of the fuselage toward the rear. They are fast and almost noiseless. The pilots like them for they are easily and completely maneuverable. Well, that is 30 for tonight, friends. Pray daily for the suc- cess of the council, please. We have settled into the regular councillor routine, rugged as it is, so that it is scarcely ap- parent that we have ever been away from it for two years. God bless. r-00Official Holy Name Men Give Plaudits Star of Sea Mission CCD Center Dedicated Success of Catholic Action; October Intention For Family Rosary To the Clergy, Religious and Laity of the Archdiocese of Seattle: October, the Month of the Holy Rosary, presents a cherished opportunity of renewing our dedication to the Family Rosary. It is our firm conviction that our families have reaped and will continue to reap untold benefits from the restoration of this tradition- al prayer within the family circle. "The Most power- ful antidote against the evils that threaten human so- ciety," the late Pope Plus XII declared, "is prayer, especially collective prayer . . . and what form of collective prayer could be more simple and yet more efficacious than the Family Rosary in which parents and children join together in suppKcating the Eternal, Father, through the intercession of their most loving Mother... There is no surer means of calling down God's blessings upon the family and especially of preserving peace and happiness in the home than the daily recitation of the Rosary." To implement this instruction of Plus XII the Holy See has prescribed that the Rosary, Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the customary prayer to St. Joseph shall be recited publicly each day m every parish from October 1 to November 2. The faithful of the Archdiocese are urged to manifest their com- mitment to the teachings of the Holy See by publicly joining in this daily recitation of the rosary for the announced intention of the Holy Father.
