Priest Stops Fast; Mayor Acts On Smut (Continued from Page I) nography; strict enforcement of licensing requirements and other administrative controls; seeking creation of a special court to deal with obscenity cases; and enlisting coopera- tion of area district attorneys in fighting the problem. So far, the priest charged, these promises have not been acted on. A spokesman for the Mayor said that "a number of things have already been done in this area, more are being contemplated, and an announcement on the subject will probably be forthcom- ing" shortly. A spokesman for Father Hill said he had undertaken his fast with the approval of Rev. William T. Wood, S.J., pastor of St. Ignatius, one of the foun- ders of the Operation Yorkville campaign. Other founders are R a bbi Neumarm and the Rev. R. E. Wittenberg, pastor of Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran church. In interrupting his fast "tem- porarily," Father Hill said he wanted to talk with Deputy Mayor Gavanagh about Cav- anagh's plans for anti-obsecnity efforts before he decided whether he would halt his fast permanently. Mayor Wagner, assigning Cavanagh to supervise the drive against pornography, said he would employ '*all available controls" against distribution of obscene ma- terial to children. He announced that the police department was distributing warning notices to 786 book- stores notifying them of the laws against obscenity. At the same time, the Mayor said the city would "avoid any v i o I a t i o n s of constitutional rights or freedom" in its pro- gram.

It contains the first representation of Mary with the Christ Child with the Prophet Isaias pointing to a star indicating that the first Christians believed that Isaias foretold her birth. For that reason Pope Plus XII, while still a Cardinal, visited this catacomb in 1931 on the H00th anniversary of the proclamation of Mary as the Mother of God by the Couneil of Ephesus, to eele- brute the Mass at the altar beneath this oldest mosaic in existence which honors Mary. The next morning I returned to celebrate Mass at this altar. As we neared the end of our citizen ambassador program each one decided to pursue his own interests in Rome. Be- fore going our different ways we had a farewell dinner in the Flora Hotel on a Sunday night. Several spokesmen gave a summary of their impres- sions of the trip and two thoughts kept occurring. First, the program had its greatest impact in helping 35 Seattle citizens of different faiths, race and background to get better acquainted and as an in- dication of the unity fostered, a date was set for the first of many planned reunions in Se- attle. Secondly, while we saw much to admire in our travels we agreed that we have a new appreciation for America, not just its material standard of living but the religious and hu- man values written into our Constitution which we may have taken for granted. On Monday evening I had dinner with Fathers Thomas Stransky, C.S.P., and J o h n Long, S.J., both members of the Secretariate for Church Unity and Father Anthony Mc- Devitt the proxy who will rep- resent Archbishop Toolen of Mobile at the Council, since the latter is unable to attend due to illness. Before going out to dinner I arranged for Rabbi Levine and Dr. Corson to haw an hour's visit with Father Stransky, which they enjoyed very much. In the course of the evening we discussed ecumenical pro- ceedings in various coun- inundation for our mutual ef- forts to promote religious understanding on the TV and radio program "Challenge". Father Stransky informed us he had written an artieh on the second session of the Council to be published in "The Sign" magazine in Oc- tober. Before leaving Rome I cele- brated Mass at the Tomb of St. Peter. Many pilgrims w e r e present even though it was an early hour. However, my most interesting insight into Roman piety came Sunday evening when I wa returning from the catacomb of St. Agnes along the Via Nomentana. We passed the Russian embassy, in former times the residence of some noble Roman, with a large wall around it. In the center of the wall, as if pene- trating the Iron Curtain of Russia, was a small Madonna with lights burning before it, carefully cultivated by the Ro- mans who have permission of the City Council to maintain these shrines at certain places throughout the city. The People-to-People pro- gram ended in Rome. For per- sonal reasons of devotion I de- cided to visit Lourdes. On the I r i s h Aer Lingus plane was His Beatitude Stephanos Si- darouss of Alexandria, Egypt, who was coming to Lourdes for two days before proceeding to Rome for business prior to the opening of the Council. He is the first of 10 Patrirachs in the Church and as a Patriarch he is next to a Cardinal in dignity. He had studied law in France and practiced it in Cairo for several years before deciding to study for the priesthood. I helped him with his baggage and transportation to a hostel for priests, St. Thomas Aquinas where I stayed and where he also ob- tained accommodations. He spoke English fluently. This kind, humble prince of the Church appointed me his chaplain while we were in Lourdes, as I was one of the few priests there who had visited his native Egypt. As the Coptic Patriraeh he rules over 80,000 Christians in communion with Rome who traet their Christianity and lturgy back to St. Mark. Becaiise of my assignment I was allowed to celebrate Mass at the main altar of the crypt at 7 a.m. and his Mass followed at 7:30 a,m. To the amazement of many hundreds of pilgrims from dif- at my Mass, they saw a priest celebrate Mass while a Prince of the Church insisted on being the altar boy. He instructed me on the Coptic Mass which is something similar to the Dominican Rite and each morn- ing I tried to assist him. I walked beside him in the Pro- cession of the Blessed Sacra- ment and we visited the Legion of Mary exposition together. The Legion is active in Egypt and by permission of the Holy See 80 Orthodox Coptic Chris- tians serve in praesidia with those who profess allegiance to Rome. g On the feast of the Holy Name of Mary he celebrated Mass at the altar in the Grot- to, which marks the spot where the Blessed Mother appeared to Bernadette on that cold winter day, February 11, 1858. It was my privilege to assist him while a French priest gave a commentary on the Coptic Mass to the thousands of pil- grims who watched in front of the Grotto. With this picture of two men, of much different rank, age, race and background united in their faith in Christ at Mass in devotion to Mary His Mother, I shall conclude the story of the 35 citizen ambassadors who left Seattle August 5, in an ef- fort to get to know people of other countries better and to allow them to know us better. It was a memorable and re- warding experience and I am profoundly grateful to the edit- or of the Catholic Northwest Progress for making is pos'sible to share this adventure in citi- zen-to.citizen diplomacy with you. BBC Marks gaber Centenary- LONDON (NC) -- The British Broadcasting Company marked the 100th anniversary of Rev. Frederick Faber's death with a special nationwide performance of some of his best known hymns. The choir of Brompton Ora- tory sang an aU-Faber program which included "Faith of Our Fathers." Brompton Oratory was founded by Father Faber himself in 1849, four years after he gave up his Anglican minis- try of eight years to enter the Catholic Church. The priest died September 26, 1863, but the BBC marked the centenary during the second week of October. Lay Retreat Schedule The Palisades Visitation Retreat (Mm'a Retreat Hm) .

Also in the group was an excellent mixed choir from Germany. Following a few brief remarks in German and Italian on the feast of the day, the Nativity of Mary, whom he called 'Hope of Christians" the Pontiff asked us to join in the recitation of the Angelus. He then blessed all of us and the religious objects in our possession. The German choir sang several numbers and gracefully acknowledging the applause of the people he withdrew. Earlier that morning the Pope had gone to a local parish to celebrate the Mass for the people and to preach a ser- mon. In the afternoon Dr. Cor- son and I visited the catacomb of St. Priscilla which dates back to around the year 150. It is my favorite catacomb, in that we find the first Chria- FHday, Nov.

Mother Joseph, born Esther Pariseau on April 16, 1823, in a stone farmhouse on the Ile Jesus near Montreal, was the third child of Joseph and Fran- coise Pariseau. Her father was a farmer as well as a design- er, carver, painter, body- mak- er and wheelwright, and his daughter learned all his skills. She entered the Sisters of Charity of Providence, Decem- ber 26, 1843. On November 3, 1856, at the request of the Bishop of Nis- qually, Mother Joseph, as su- perior, and four other nuns, began the trip to Vancouver, on a mission of works of charity and mercy. From the day of her arrival, Mother Joseph was called upon to build, teach and help the sick and poor. She and the oth- er Sisters made many begging trips throughout the North- west. People from all walks of life assisted Mother Joseph in es- tablishing an orphanage, school, insane asylum, home for the aged and hospital. She was ar- chitect, carpenter, mason and artist. In 1873, P r o v i d e n c e Academy, the first of Mother Joseph's large building projects in the Pacific Northwest, was completed. She was architect, carpenter, mason and artist. The Institute of Architects has acclaimed her as the Pa- cific Northwest's first architect and the West Coast Lumber- man's Association recognizes her as the first Northwestern artist to work in'wood.
