Council Fathers Attend AAlniversary Mass Pope Acts ." To Speed CONVENTS B E I N G CONFISCATED -- Steu- benville, Ohio, Nov. 8 (NC)  A P o 1 i s h refugee priest said here he has learned of the removal of Sisters from convents and their internment in special camps in Red-ruled Poland. Father Marion S. Mazgaj, now a professor at St. John Vianney's •Seminary in Bloomingdale, made the report in an article in the Steubenville Register, newspaper of the diocese. "In September of this year," he wrote, "the Polish Communists began the liquidation of convents and other institutions run by the Sisters. FREEDOM OF RELIGION PROMISED -- Ran- goon, Burma, Nov. 7 m A "socialist program," in which everyone's right to profess and practice his religion is recognized, has been announced for Burma by General Ne Win's government. General Ne Win and other high-ranking mem- bers of the Defense Services first took over the government in November, 1958, and gave it back to civilian political leaders in February, 1960. Last March 2, General Ne Win, in a bloodless coup, took control of the government again. The rulLng body now is known as the Revolution- ary Council of the Union of Burma. It is a military group, with General Ne Win presiding. ISLANDWIDE MISSION PLANNED m San Juan, P. R., Nov. 7 (NC)mA pastoral letter issued by the Puerto Ri,ean hierarchy has called for  a con- centration of "all apostolic activities" throughout the island for the success of an islandwide mission • to be held early in 1963. The pastoral, signed by Archbishop James P. Davis of San Juan, and Bishops James E. McManus, C.SS.R., of Ponce; Alfred D. Mendez, C.S.C., of Arecibo, and Luis Aponte, Auxiliary of San Juan, asserted the mission will be "the greatest event in the religious life of Rico." Eighty missioners, including members of relig- ious communities, will direct the missions in every parish in Puerto Ri,co. ASK BACKING FOR CIVIC DRIVE  Lima, Peru, Nov. 7 (NC) w The support of the Church in a national campaign to build civLc responsibility among Peru's people is actively sought by the army junta now ruling the country. This was stated here by a spokesman for the army group, Gem Juan Bessie Collas, who said. "I believe that the Church has a highly valuable message at this time. If Catholicism in Peru changes its structure and attitude and puts the stamp of the Gospel on the social teachings it possesses, it can perform a great task in our country and in all Latin American countries, since they are all essentially Catholic." SAYS SCHOOL ,AID IS SAVINGmMelbourne, Australia, Nov. 8 (NC)--State assistance to privately operated schools would be a money-saving move, a high government official sad here. Prime Minister Henry E. BoRe of Victoria State acknowledged this in responding to the appeal of a deputation from the Victorian Catholic Parents and Friends' Federation to lift the "financial block- ade" described by them as strangling the indepen- dent schools. The deputation estimated that the government would have to s p e n d $560,000 in the Melbourne metropolitan area alone next year to accommodate pupils who cannot be handled in the crowded Catholic schools. The Victoria State government gives no direct tax aid to these schools at present. I II II I For the UNUSUAL IN GIFTS ..

A hearing-aid firm ran a "nuntius surditate affectis," (an announcement for the hard of hearing). It pays to use The Progress Classified Ads. Debates (Continued from Page 1) the advisability of permitting concelebration under certain circumstances. There had been a great deal of repetition in the arguments, a completely unnecessary factor in the dis- cussions. The proposal for terminating the discussion on this chapter was put to a vote of the Fa- thers of the Council and they arose as one man, all 2211 of them to approve the proposal. This happened in the middle of a speech that was being deliv- ered by one of the bishops and he was forthwith cut down-- kaput, much to his surprise. However, he and those who were to follow him were per- mitred to submit their papers and manuscripts to the general secretariat for inclusion among the proposals already offered. I am sure that the "periti" (experts) as well as the Prot- estant and Orthodox observ- ers also arose as one man but I failed to note this. Begin Discussions Of Sacraments The discussion moved on to the third chapter of the agen- da, on the sacraments and sac- ramentals and 17 bishops spoke on these subjects before the 13th General Congregation of the council adjourned. It was interesting to note later on in the day the headlines in some of the local papers about the important announcement that had been made at the beginning of the session yesterday morn- ing. One newspaper stated: "Pope Slashes Speechifying" and commended the Holy Fa- ther in his efforts to speed up the work of the council. We all agree, at least on this one point. The Holy Father re- ceives a report every day of the progress of the council and it is said that everything !hat is being said at the sessions ]s "pumped" into his apartment so that he may listen if he has the time and I should add, the patience. He is really remark- able. Coronation Of Pope Marked On Sunday last, we assem- bled in St. Peter's for the sol- emn commemoration of the fourth anniversary of his cor- onation. The basilica was filled to capacity, not only by the Fathers of the Council in their proper seats, but by thousands of other guests, members of the diplomatic corps, religious orders of men and women, seminarians from the many na- tional seminaries in Rome and its environs and the faithful at large, those who could get in. The solemn Mass was cele- brated by Cardinal Montini of Milan according to the Ambro- sian Rite, used in that area of Northern Italy. The Holy Fa- ther spoke after the Gospel and his voice was strong, clear, resonant and forceful. Greeted Cardinals With Smile For all his four score years he was the complete master of the occasion, greeting with a smile each one of the cardin- als during the Gloria as they went one by one to make their obeisance to him. After the Mass, he appeared at his apartment window to give his blessing to the thousands in the piazza who could not gain admission to the basilica for the special observance of his coronation anniversary. He has the common touch and the fa- therly approach and aDleal and the people love him for it, Met Seattle Seminarian In the piazza we met James Eblen, our sle representative from the Archdiocese at the North American College. Jim Northwest Prelates Gather At St. Peter's STANDING BEFORE THE PILLARS of St. Peter Basilica are six prelates Spokane; Most Reverend Francis D. Gleeson, S.J., Bishop of Fairbanks; from the Pacific Northwest books and briefcases in hand. With them is Most Reverend Joseph P. Dougherty, Bishop of Yakima; Archbishop Very Rev. John R. Sullivan from St. Thomas the Apostle Seminary. In the noUy; Most Reverend Thomas E. Gill, V.G., Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle center is the Most Reverend Archbishop Thomas A. Connolly of Seattle. and Most Reverend Dermot O'Flanagan, Bishop of Juneau.  The six prelates are (from the left) Most Reverend Bernard J. Topel of for the use of the vernacular in the liturgy for his own person- al benefit. Many bishops favor a wider use of the vernacular in the Church's public worship while others insist that Latin remain the language of the Church throughout the world. Probably some kind of compromise will be reached when all the proposals have been examined and weighed. Your correspondent would like to see English used for the fore'oart of the Mass, the Mass of the Catechumens. This arrangement w o u I d bring the Mass closer to the people and afford them the opportunity of participating more directly, m n r e con- seiously, m o r e attentively and with greater devotion in the Holy Sacrifice. I would also like to see the Mass celebrated facing the people for the same reasons. This would necessitate a num- ber of changes in the design and construction of our sane- tuaries and altars but I believe it would be all to the good. English should also be substi- tuted for Latin in the adminis- tering of many of the Sacra- ments, including Confirmation. However, I would not go far- ther than that. At a later date we are to take up the question of the breviary and the Latin and vernacular will then come in for a great deal of debate. It appears from an examina- tion of the entire Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy that the "pros" are in the saddle, as it were, the professional litur- gists, that is, those who have been in the forefront of the li- turgical novement for a num- ber of years. Much of the agenda seems to represent their views and opinions and in some instances even their arguments are included in footnotes. While it is true that the lead- ership of the movement in re- cent years has been somewhat more conservative, relatively speaking, there still eXist in the ranks certain "liturgiolo- The Universal Church THE UNIVERSALITY OF THE CHURCH is graphi. cally portrayed in these pictures taken following a session of the Second Vatican Council.

As the retired school teacher declared after attend- ing a lecture to learn more about a subject in which she was interested and about which Latin, may I state that the use of the Latin language in the sessions was at first somewhat confusing, due principally to the variety of accents of the speakers.

Hit i i iili tlli arranging to take him and some of his friends on a pic- nic to Tivoli on one of our free Thursdays. We do ramble on. In each of the chapters of the Constitution on Sacred Liturgy, there is a section de- voted to the advisability of substituting the vernacular for the Latin in some of the cere- monial, the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the = administering of the Sacra- ments, etc., and this particular faccl of the agenda is sub- jetted to endless proposals and suggestions. Some Favor Wider Use Of Vernacular It is somewhat strange to hear a prelate in purest clas- sical Latin (probably a Sulpi- clan student or alumnus) argue Church over the centuries. Anticipates Compromise On Liturgy One of the purposes of the council, according to the Holy Father, is to bring the Church more in line with modern thought, with the demands of modern times, with modern cultures, etc., and one fails to see how this can be accom- plished by reverting to the pract!ces and ceremonial of the early ages of the Church. Whatever comes out of the council with regard to changes in the sacred liturgy, the com- munal worship of God, the prayer life of the Church, etc., will undoubtedly be a compro- mise of one sort or another. That is what many of us antici- pate. To return to the question of (NC) -- The remains of Ven- erable Mother Elizabeth Seton, foundress of the American Sis- ters of Charity, were exhumed and identified here as a neces- sary step toward her beatifi- cation. Mother Seton, who died in 1821, is expected to be beatified next year. When this happens, she will be the first U.S.-born person so honored by the Church. Speculation has set March 17 as a possible date for the beatification ceremonies in Rome. The exhumation and canoni- cal identification of her re- mains was carried out under the direction of officials of the Baltimore archdiocese and per- sons connected with her can. onizatiun cause. to hear the opinions of the cardinals, patriarchs and bishops on the canonizations of four new saints. The causes to be voted on are those of Blesseds Vincent Pallotti, Peter Julian Eymard, Antonio Pucci and Francesco Maria of Camporosso. A consistory is a formal pre- liminary to canonization. The Pope will deliver an address. Following this, Arcadio Car- dinal Larraona, C.M.F., Pre- fect of the Sacred Congrega- tion of Rites, will read a re- port on the lives, virtues and miracle of the four blesseds. Then, the prelates will give their opinions on the causes. Blessed Vincent P a 11 o t t i, founder of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate, known as the Pallottine Fathers, died in his native Rome at the age of 55 January 22, 1850, and was beatified 100 years later to the day. The congregation he founded now numbers more than 2,200 members. Blessed Peter Julian Ey- mard, founder of the Congrega- tion of the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament and of the Servants (Sisters) )f the Bles- sed Sacrament, was born near Grenoble, France, in 1811 and died in 1968. He was beatified in 1925. Blessed Anfonio Pucci was born near Pistoia, Italy, in 1819. He became a priest of the Servite Order, the Ser. rants of Mary. Blessed Francesco Maria, a Capuchin Brother. was born at Camporosso, northern Italy, in 1804 and died in 1866. He was beatified in 1925. -- The assistant director of the Veterans Administration chaplain service has urged that Veterans Day, November 11, be a day of prayer throughout the nation. Msgr. Joseph W. Hartman said in a special message: "There are many who still .crry their scars of service in their maimed bodies. For these we must not only give thanks but also our prayers and support. "We pray that all those who served us in our need receive from a merciful God that eternal reward which alone can satisfy the heart of man . . . We pray that we may continue to lead the whole world toward true peace, the peace el justice for all mankind."
