Armchair Excursion VkTICAN IMPRES- SIONS, edited by Fran- cis Sweeney, S.J., Sheed &amp; Ward, 266 pp., $5.95. O ONE writer could cap- O ture the mystique of Rome or of the Vatican. Each is too complex, too involved in the tangled skein of Western histo, too overlain w i t h a multitude of human mosaics, too "Roman" to be investigated and recorded by any one talent. However if the writings of many authors were gathered under one cover, certain notes of similarity would become ap- parent and a feeling about the Vatican would emerge. The. Rev. Francis Sweeney, S,J., has compiled such a treatise. Not all of the writers includ- ed were devout Roman Catho- lics. Johann von G o e t h e, or terry Wadsworth Longfellow had never been decorated for their great devotion to the Church. But even in the writ- ings of the antagonists we wit- ness the truth of the Vatican emblazoned. Even writers whose emotions are clouded by 'Papist" concepts h a v e not )eea able to leave the Vatican without a profound conviction they have seen the center of an old and continuingly, meaning- ful manifestation of faith. Other writers brought within the purview of this book in- clude Hillairo B e 1 1 o c, Sean O'Faolain, E d w a r d Gibbon, Montaine+ James Fenimnre Cooper, Booth Tarkington, G. K. Chesterton, Graham Greene, and many others who reflect the same diversity of sty 1 e, opinion, and reaction. They are By JOHN J. ECKHART longer works, the tragic and the comic. In their writings they cover papal elections, with all of the attendant grandeur and Italian emotion, Vatican architecture, papal audiences, art and his. tory, as well as same interest- ing character studies. And the common notes that emerge? The reader, perhaps not even consciously, begins to recognize the sublimity and majesty that must be the Vatican. Through the eyes of such a wide variety of writers we can p e e r beneath the Bernini columns, the angelle work of the Sistine Chapel, the procession and polities, to the heart of the matter, as Graham Greene would have it, to the dead center verity that here exists the seat of the Prince of Apostles, Vicar of Christ on Earth, in the suc- cessor of Peter, the Roman of the demands for downgrad- ing devotion to Our Lady comes from outside the Church. This book, through the intelligent ap- lication of lively faith, aids in further illumination of the life of Mary and her correct posi- tion as the natural mother of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. Father Weigner writes poet- ically, prayerfully of the rich doctrinal h o I d in g s of the Church as they concern Mary, mediatrix of all grace. While he does not propound any new or startling inno- vations in Marian tradition or devotion, through the fullness of his talent he leads into a deeper appreciation of the life of faith lived by Mary. He considers Mary as she has been praised by the great prophets and saints, and finally Pontiff. in the last section he further While each of us would duly reveals the position of Mary as note exterior manifestations as the gracious mother of all men they impressed us, I am certain through meditations on the Re- each of us could evoke the sary. same fundamental emotion if we could but view the Vatican. But until that time I can only recommend this excellent arm- chair excursion in the company 0f many talented writers who have seen and recorded.

SHEEN hen Pharaoh refused to obey the Divine Command to let the He- brews go out from Egypt, the land of slavery, God sent plague after plague upon the country. Pharaoh made promises, but always broke them. Finally, God sent the plague of darkness. Pharaoh relented and said to Moses: "Go and sacrifice to the Lord and take your children with you, only leave your flocks and herds behind." Notice the compromise which Pharaoh de- manded. The flocks and herds of this pastoral people constituted a principal part of what they owned; these were their earthly possessions. The issue raised by Pharaoh's demand was, therefore, whether or not God has title to all that we have. Moses refused to accept the compromise on the grounds that all of us are nothing but stewards of any wealth that we have. Further- more, all of our possessions are to be made available for sacrifice. Moses .said to Pharaoh: "Nay, thou must let us take victims with us, if we are to offer the Lord our God burnt- sacrifice." Recently there came to our attention a letter from a father who has six children and teaches school. His salary is much less than he once earned working in a factory, and yet, recogniz- ing the stewardship of his wealth, he gives 27 per cent of it to the Lord. As he put it: "We may do without many things which we think are necessities, but we enjoy it because many will hear of Our Lord in the missions who other- wise might not. Each moment we enjoy bounti- ful and multiplied blessings of Our Lord and Savior. God blesses our stewardship." In gratitude for any blessings that you have teceived, may we ask you during this Thanks- giving season to set aside at least a penny a day for the missions with the prayer: "I do this out of love for Thee, O Lord." Then at Christmas time, send you sacrifice-offerings to the Holy Father throdgh his own Society for the Propagation of the Faith. GOD LOVE YOU to M. F.

Have you ever stopped to thank God for the gift of Faith? What better time than in this Thanksgiving season; what better way than by offering the Worldmission Rosary. Each decade is a different color, representing the five conti. nents where missionaries are laboring to bring Christ to the pagans.

None of this would have been necessary, ev duflng the trying economic and or- ganizational times o the early 1930+s it an important point of the social encycli- cals had been more accept. able among the forces of ownership. Sharing the profit still re- mains an untried force, and this state of affairs exists in an economy based on the pro- fit motive, The relative importance of labor and capital in the hier- archy of capitalism will always remain an academic exercise for students of Econ. I and II. It can, and often does resOlve itself to the moot question of Which came first the chicken Or the egg. Without capital investment we cannot have the tools of production. Our economic primer COn- tinues with the obvious con- clusion that without the hands of labor, all of the tools in Creation would fall idle. For our purposes it is not necessary tO become involved in these theoretical considra- tions. The Church and The Worker By John J. Eckhart Slxth of a Series i The facts are that we live in an economic philosophy that recognizes the right to private protrty but i attempting to sell our free computitive system to a world too willing to acct the Marxian dial- ectic. We claim, with validity, that our profit motive system has produced the highest standard of living in the world. And still w0 are not yet ready, willing, or se*mitgly able, to apply the same mo- tive to our labet-mafagement relationships. It /OUld lrhaps be Unfair to categorically assume that ownership, o r management, retains a closed mid on the subject. It only seems that way. The concept of the worker sharing in the direct profit of the employer still hovers in the purgatory of eeenomic heresy. For too many gen. erations of investors+ the pro- fit has been the sole posses- sion of ownership, prosetnd. ing right, justice, or een academic consideration. It has always been under- stood, on the practical level, that the worker was paid wages for the use of his labor, and never was the contribu- tion of his labor to be thought of as any kind of lien on com- pany profits. There are several reasons why this concept must change. If we believe that private ownership and profit instill cer- tain notes of propritory pride in prodact, service, or labor, all related to the inherent dig- nity of labor, then how can we deny the worker the chance at this same pride in ower- shit and labor. is the conviction of the Papal encyclicals t h a t a worker whose infer4t bo. come the same as the md interests of the employer will bec0e a worker eute in the knowledge thaf ! t$ hib rtant to the tnnployer+ that he retains his dignity as a WOrker, and a worker les e0ncerned with "ela#t Wr- are." HOw this profit sharin is to be ttcComplished on an Individ- ual basis is not [t difficult a problem as iS Onvirtcing ownership that the worker shottld share in the profitg of production.

The fallacy that if Khruh. cbev removes his missiles and jet bombers from Cnba the crisis will be dissohted and the daner removed from our shores is utter nonsense and not eensonant with the facts of Communist Ideology, ptaetice or history.

AssoIofe Professor, St. Louis University What can married children do when they see that their invalid mother is simply driving their elderly lather to de. spair? Lately he's started drinking--just enough to remain in a kind o stupor so her constant nagging won't bother him. Mother's always dominated the [amily, and since ather's retirement she insists he spend every moment waiting on her. They could hire a part-time nurse, but her constant criticism drives e,ery one away. If we're not there to be nagged, she takes it out on Dad, and he must agree with her or she lets him have it. We're araid he'll become an alcoholic. How should we handle this situation? here are several points in your interesting letter that I wish to comment upon before attemp- ting to answer your basic question. In the first place, it is well for all of us to reflect that no other human experience more clearly reveala our true character and the quality of our Christian outlook on life than our reaction to sickness, particularly prolonged sickness or the state of being an invalid. It is not primarily a matter of enduring pain, for pain is relative in terms of our sen- sitivity, stamina, expectations and anticipa- tion at the time--as every mother knows. Bt sickness and its associated ineonveaioncu must be personally interpreted or given men- ing, and it is here that the experience becomes a revealer of character. Mature Christians regard sickness as hum- bling reminder of their human condition, and as members of the Mystical Body, they grad- ually learn to accept it as an opportunity to participate in the redemptive sufferings of FATHER ChrisL THOMAS . People who have no faith, or those who have not learned to interpret their experiences in the light of faith, regard all sufferings as meaningless evil and consequently become frustrat. ed, resentful, or even bitter when forced to endure sickness, Hence by way of compensation, they may learn to use their illness as a means of gaining unmerited attention and sym- pathy, as a convenient excuse for all their fault. attd lack of effort, or as a way of maintaining control and domination over the people around them. Compenmtion Prolonged hese compensations (which are really escapes from reality) may become so rewarding that some people prolong their siege of sickness, imagine they arn flick, or pretend to be sick rather than give them up. We see this tendency frequently in children, but since most of us remain more or ls immature and sooner or later must endure some sickness and suffering, we should all be on our guard against it. Otherwise, when sickness arrives, we shall probably act childishly or display the sentiments of the little man who re. fused to take out life insurance to prOteCt his wife and children: "When I die, I want it to be aud day for *eerybedy!" Second, you mentioned that your mother had always dOmin- ated the family. I/1 this connection I would like to comment that it is a rather common misconception to believe that it is more charitable and better for all concerned to allow domineering persons to have their own way. This peace-at-any-price philosophy in marriage is false on s*veral counts. Both partner# suffer, fOr the flilt one be, comes u negative personality, while the unchecknd vie of the domineering partner seriously hinders all growth in virtue. The chi|dren also suffer, since their parents offer them otly a dis- torted model of Christian marriage. Third, as hi so many human relations' dlfflcultit% your prOblorn  to involve onflieting tltlttg lnd obliptiens, for yon must love and rovortnmo y0er pareato yt censure them for their eouduct. The conflict is oni F apparent. It is be. cause you are bound to love and reverence them that you must do something about the preSent sltuaflou. Tfae love seeks the real good of the pern loved. Perhal the major obstacle you face, i that the situation is so oatstding and you arid your ist are the odtmt of it. In other words, you are not going tO find it  th,r to tell her the truth or to get her to listen to you if you do. lerib/ Own Thinking HEN dealit with such situations, your first Kep mt be to clarify your own thinking.
