[ ..... Official [Parish is Established At Lynnwo+0d -+. Second Vatican Council Pastors, Catholic T° the Clergy' RelLgi°us and Laity c + the Press Mee t Archdiocese of Seattle Dearly Beloved in Christ: Assistants During these fateful days, the Bishops of the .,.u. ,0000l-00eeA entire world are wending their way toward the Holy City at the invitation of our Holy Father, Pope John Ill New Posts - ,,h l-- XXIII, to participate in the Second Vatican Council. In a century which has seen two world wars, the birth and death of numerous nations, the sudden rise and the unbelievable conquests of Atheistic Commun- ism, the spasms of hope and despair of people all over the world, the Council, which, to be sure, is meant directly to affect the Catholic Church and its membership, could well turn out to be the instrument under God to bring the world to its senses and to an honest and humble acknowledgment that man was made for God, not for himself, for eternity, not for time, for deep, spiritual happiness, not for shallow, materialistic pleasure. Three months after His Holiness, Pope John XXIII, took office, he announced the convocation of the Second Vatican Council. Through his years as priest, Archbishop and Cardinal, the Roman Pontiff had grown weary of watching indivi,duals, organiza- tions, nations and world bodies  ttempt to solve the ills of mankind and to bring peace by merely human ingenuity and efforts, with little or no knowledge of the availabilJ.ty of God's grace, and without reference to man's eternal destiny. The Second Vatican Council will bring together almost 3,000 Cardinals, Patriarchs, Primates, Arch- bishops and Bisl.ops, Abbots and major religious su- periors-undoubtedly the largest number of skilled, capable and resourceful men that has ever been as- sembled in one place at one time. What other body of men has a greater knowledge of the problems and misery of the human race, a deeper understanding of the yearnings of the human heart, and a surer insight into the Divine plan for genuine happiness? These are the men His Holiness has called together to take counsel with hixn to determine how the Church in the twentieth century can better fulfill its role of bringing men to Christ and Christ to men. Begging the prayers of all the faithful through- out the world, His Holiness has stated, "This under- taking is so important that human efforts and human powers will not, by themselves, be able to bring it to a successful conclusion . . . It is important for you to beg for the light and strength of the Holy Spirit constantly in your prayers and petitions." Knowing the place that prayer must have m our lives, and rea- lizing the gravity of the deliberations and decisions that will be made in Vatican City during the next few months, we:cannot but accede to the pleadings of His Holiness to offer earnest prayers for the success of the Council. Accordingly, a novena of prayers will be held in every parish church and in the schools and institu- tions of the Archdiocese, beginning on October 3 and concluding on October 11, the date for the opening of the Council. With every best wish and: blessing, I am : Devotedly yours in Christ, Archbishop of Seattle September 28, 1962. N.B.: The foregoing letter is to be read at all Masses in all parish and mission churches and in the chap- els of institutions in the Archdiocese, on Sunday, September 30. Oct0ber-The Month Of The Holy :Rosary Reverend and dear Father: October, the Month of the Holy Rosary, presents a cherished opportunity of renewing the Family Ro- sary pledge that was signed by over 140,000 of our flock during the Crusade that was conducted in Octo- ber, 1956, in the Archdiocese Of Seattle and through- out the Northwest. It is our firm conviction that our families have reaped and will continue to reap untold benefits from the restoration of this tradLtional prayer within the family circle. There is scarcely need of pointing out that the Rosary is Our Lady's special prayer. History has proven repeatedly the irresistible power of the Rosary against the enemies of Christ. There are many dangers besetting family life today. The Family Ro- sary recited daily is a definite safeguard for any family. It is not necessary to point out to you the vital o ianportance of prayer---constant, unremitting prayer for the solution of the manifold problems, personal, family, nat!onal and international that confront us today. We may have reached an impasse on the Ber- lin and Cuban questions that can only be settled by bloodshed. The entire world situation is frightening i.n the extreme. The increasing boldness, the savage effrontery of the Communist bosses, the constant sniping by cer- tain secularistic and materialistic elements at the Christian ideals and traditions upon which our Coun- try was founded, the never ending attempts to force God and the recognition of His Dominion over us from the halls of government, the market place, the schools, the diabolical campaign promoted by con- scienceless purveyors of unspeakable filth that finds its outlet on the motion picture screen and news- stands, all these and other evils are gnawing li&e a death-dealing cancer at the very moral fibre of our citizenry, young and old. "The most powerful antidote against the evils that threaten human society," the late Pope Plus XII declared, "is prayer, especially collective prayer . . . ? and what form of collective prayer could be more " sixnple and yet more efficacious than the Family Rosary in which parents and children join together in supplicating the Eternal Father, through the inter- cession 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 hap- piness in the home than the daily recitation of the Rosary." - I would ask you to entreat your people to offer their Rosary during the month of October in a very parti.cular way that the Mother of God will guide the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council in their delib- erations. With every best wish and blessing, I am Devotedly yours in Christ, (Continued from Page 1) 21, 1923.

THE CHANCERY By Order of the Most Reverend Archbishop September 28, 1962. October Intention For Family Rosary Success of the Second Vatican Council The General Intention recommended to the pray- ers of all Associates of the Apostleship of Prayer for the month of October is The Vatican Council. The Vatican Council is a convention of doctors and scientists in the field of religion. They repre- sent the Catholic Church, the biggest religious society in the world. At their head is the Pope, the Bishop of Rome. With him sit the Bishops of the Church, come from all parts of the globe to bring to these discussions the advantage of their learning and pastoral ex- perience. They are the Fathers of the Council, : To aid them in their work, the Church has assembled her greatest theologians, seminary professors and authorities in the different fields of theology. From a purely human point of view it would be hard to imagine a more authoritative group of men to whom we could look for religious leadership. T h e background and prestige of these men are tremendous. But over and above this array of natural talent is the fact that these men are not just functionaries in a human religions society. They are the divinely chosen leaders of the splendors of the Vatican, are the legitimate successors of the Twelve Apostles, the "Sent Ones" to whom Christ spoke." Just as Christ spoke to his Apostles the truths men had to know to save their immort- al souls, so, too, now is He speaking to this group of teachers the things men must know if they are to meet successfully the errors and dangers to Faith and morals which confront them today. It is the same group of teachers, the Apostles liv- ing on in their legitimate successors. Christ never in- tended a Church of one gen- eration. Knowing this, we feel around us the presence of the super- natural. We see our own Bishop in a growing light. We have seen him on the street with nothing to distinguish him from others save his pec- toral cross. We have seen him at Pontifical Mass in all the splendor of the liturgy. • Now we see him as one of a supernatural Church which these men through whom joint-  has, as one of its greatest ly, and in unison with the tasks, the job of transmitting Vicar of Christ, Christ Himself intact to the world the re- will speak upon the problems . velation which Christ came which vex the world today. If into our lives to teach, The we cannot listen to these men, . Pope add Bishops we see, sit- to whom can we listen? O .....

The [ollowing is a prayer he composed to ask /or God's help or this momentous event. O Divine Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of Jesus, Who dost infallibly assist and guide the Church, pour forth the fulness of Thy gifts upon the Ecumenical Council. Kind Teacher and Comforter, enlighten the minds of our Bishops, who, responding to the in- vitation of the Sovereign Roman Pontiff, will gather in solemn assembly. Grant that from this Council there may come forth abundant fruits; that the light and strength of the Gospel may ever more wktely influence hu- man society; that new vigor may infuse the Cath- olic religion and its missionary task; that the. Church's teaching may be better known and Chris- tian morality more widely practiced. Sweet Guest of our souls, confirm our minds in truth, and dispose our hearts,to obedience, so that the decisions of the Council may find in us gen- erous acceptance and prompt fulfillment. We beseech Thee, too, on behalf of those sheep who no longer belong to the one fold of Jesus Christ, that they also, glorying as they do in the name of Christian, may finally regain uni,ty under one Shepherd. Renew in our time Thy wondrous works, as in a new Pentecost, and grant that the Church, gath- ered together in unanimous, more intense prayer, around Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and guided by Peter, may spread the kingdom of the Divine Saviour, which is the kingdom of truth, of justice, of love, and of peace.
