Archbishop Tells Of Pope's Birthday: Offers Mass At Altar Where Luther Stood By the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly Archbishop of Seattle Rome, Nov. 28--The masterful Augustinian monk, Martin Luther, leader subsequently of the great re- ligious revolt of the 16th Century, rode into Rome in the late spring of the year 1511 and put up at the Augustinian monastery at the foot of the Pincio just the Aurelian Wall. Whether Luther, four years after his ordination, came to Rome ;n fulfillment of a vow or as the re'presentative of a number of Augus- tinian monasteries that desired to lodge some protest or other, matters little here. He lived for a short time with his Augustinian brethren and today clerical visitors to the monastery can be shown the room that Luther occupied. During his sojourn in Rome, he said Mass in the Church of Santa Maria Del Populo, connected with the monastery. It was his one and only visit to the Eternal City. Offered Mass For Martin Luther On Monday last I offered the Ho'y Sacrifice of the Mass in the parish church of Santa Maria Del Populo for the repose of the soul of this fractious, headstrong, intractable priest and for the ultimate return to the fold of all Lutherans, on the same altar where tradition has it that Luther said his last Mass in Rome. This is, for the moment, my own personal contribution, however remote, to the ecumenical movement. The church, itself a regular treasure trove of liturgical art though its exterior is anything but impressive or attractive, was erected in 1099 by Pope Paschall II. It was redesigned and re- constructed in 1497 by Pope Sixtus IV. It contains paintings and classical sculptures by a number of prominent artists of the time, Pinturicchio, Maratto, Bernini, Sansovino, Raphael, Lorenzetto and Del Piombo. Within nine years Luther was to be excommunicated by Pope Leo X. The bill of excommunication, "Exsurge, Domine", was issued June or July 15, 1520, condemning 41 of Luther's proposi- tions drawn from his writings, ordering the destruction of the books containing his errors and summoning Luther himself to recant within 60 days or receive the full penalty of ecclesiastical punishment. Luther paid no attention to the bull of excommuni- cation, defying Rome and the Pope to do their worst. Quiet Devotion To Mary From that time on, he recognized no superior, tolerated no rival, brooked no contradiction and the last slate of the man became worse than the first. However, despite his eccentricities, his idiosyncracies, his mental ak ,'rations of one sort or another, Luther had a quiet devotion to Our Lady, if anything that Luther did can be said to be quiet. He preached regularly on her feast down to the year of his death and there are some 80 of these sermons etant, most of which postdated his break with the Church. He was a confirmed believer in Our Lady's divine motherhood and her perpetual virginity. He accepted the Im- maculate Cenception, he did not openly deny the Assumption and he could speak with enthusiasm about her faith, her humil- ity and her purity. However, he was caught up in the wave of anti-R.:mani.m that swept Germany in the beginning of the 16th Century and he went the way of all flesh. So much for Martin Luther at his point for he is bound to receive some mention in the council in sub- sequent sessions. Cancels Spring Session Yesterday, in response to an appeal from a number of Latin American bishops and missionary bishops from distant mission fields, the Holy Father cancelled the spring session of the coun- cil for 1963 and set Sunday, September 8, the Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Mother, as the opening date of the long fall ses- sion. While the closing date of this three month meeting has not been announced, it is thought that the session in question will adjourn December 8. The cancelled session would have opened May 12 nd closed (Continued on Page 2) Pope John Leaders Hail Upcoming Is Under FA | * __I mace Meet Educator Asks Aid For All: Treatment Kettgton 00r-ns Of Soci iized Educati VATICAN CITY, Nov, C ICANGO 2 :O a e a on 29 (NC)- Osservatore Paotimtelfof e ohferNa3nal I-h said theme attitudes are Romano, Vatican C i t y (N +o ll:ad "'the best guarantees for sue- VANCOUVER, B.

Garvey, C.S.B., told a public meeting of the British Columbia Catho- lic Teachers' Association: "The state is not by nature a busi- ness man, a medical practi- tioner, nor is it an educator."

The state has the right to protect society by setting suit- able academic standards, Fa- ther Garvey said. But he warned that "it has no right to determine the philosophy or re- ligion which is taught in schools; or that there be no religion or philosophy taught in schools." Father Garvey said it is not sufficient for the state to permit schools in which reli- gion is taught. "Such schools have a right to receive tax support," he added. He said that most countries in the world and all Canadian Brother Eagle Scouts provinces with the exception of Manitoba and British Columbia, support schools which teach religion. Father G a r v e y stressed that it is Up to the layman to press for government support of schools teaching religion. "It is the duty of laymen to work for democratic rights, not as members of a Church but as citizens and parents," he said. "If the Church is tempted to take over the work of lay- men . . . to obtain political rights for them, there is a danger that these rights will be looked on as concessions to a particular church." Headlines and Deadlines: Deep Freeze Remains By George N. Kramer, Ph.D. It's a little too early to expect the flowers to bloom, but judging by some press and government pronouncements, Spring is just around the corner. / The cold fact, however, is that this is still winter time diplomatically as well as met- eorologically and the d e e p freeze remains. The blossoming hope that the Cuban crisis has dwindled to the vanishing point and that the Commies have been chas- tisod into good behavior may soon be nipped in the bud. We seem as never before to be faced with a critical situ- ation which only astute and resolute statesmanship will be able to resolve. Whether the policies which are apparently being formulat- ed by our Department of State will meet this need is still an unanswered question. The only source of information we have at present are elusive and anonymous "spokesmen" and "informed sources" speaking through daily news columns. Some of the hints dropped through these channels are the following: The Administration is satisfied that Khrushchev has fulfilled his part of the bar- gain made with President Ken- nedy by having removed all his missiles from Cuba. The Administration be- lieves that Khrushchev w i 1 1 live up to his promise to with- draw all his IL-28 bombers by December 20.

The paper reported that since Tuesday, Nov. 27, the Pope has had to cancel his audiences "On the advice of doctors . . . because of the accentuated symptoms of gas- tric troubles for which the Holy Father has been under- going for some time appropri- ate medical and dietetic treat- ment, and which caused rather strong anemia." The paper added: "Everything leads to hope that as a result of treatment arranged and underway, the august Pontiff may very soon resume the welcome audiences. As is obvious, all his children scattered all over the world are not content with simple good wishes, even though ex- pressed with ardent devotion to the Common Father, but they will add to this the com- mitment of particular prayers that any slowing down of the fullness of the apostolic minis- try of the Vicar of Jesus Christ may soon disappear."

Statements endorsing t h e aims of the meeting ca m e from Francis Cardinal Spell- man, Archbishop of New York, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, and other leaders. Their statements were released here today by the National Catholic Conference for Inter- racial Justice, which is serv- ing as secretariat for the Con- ference on Religion and Race. The conference, to be held at Chicago's Edgewater B e a c h Hotel, will bring together some 800 clergymen and laymen rep- resenting more than 60 groups for discussions of the role of religion in dealing with prob- lems of racial justice. The Conference will adopt a "statement of conscience" representing a consensus among those attending and will also propose a series of action recommendations for dealing with racial segrega- tion. It will be the first national meeting convened jointly by all the major faith groups in the U.S. The convening bodies are the Department of Racial and Cultural Relations of the Na- tional Council of Churches; the Social Action Commission of the Synagogue Council of America; and the Social Action memorate the centennial of the Emancipation Proclama- tion, which was signed by President Abraham Lincoln on January I, 1863. Cardinal Spellman in his statement praised the "dedica- tion and spirit of brotherly love" of the religious bodies taking part in the conference. tions throughout the world." Former President Eisen. bower said the deliberations of the eonferenee should pro- dome "guidance and leader- ship for development of a national elimate in which the equality and dignity and fel- lowship of all will be clearly recognized."

The student is Andrew C. Tater, 21, a University of Maryland junior, who refused to sign an oath including the phrase, "So help me God." Tater says he is an agnostic. Tater first was turned down for the job at the local post office. Then he sought help from the area branch of the Ameriean Civil Liberties Union. After the ACLU spoke with postal officers, he was given a form in whieh the name of GOd was omitted.

New Feature Begins... Requiem Sung For Archbishop John J. Swint WHEELING, W.Va., Nov. 28 (N.C.) -- Pontifical requiem Mass for Archbishop John J. Swint, Bishop of Wheeling, was offered in St. Joseph's cathe- dral here. Archbishop Swint died No- vember 23 of an apparent heart attack a little more than three weeks before his 83rd birth- day, which would have been on December 15. A spokesman at the cathe- dral residence, where he lived, said the Archbishop was cheer- ful at lunch on the day of his death. When he did not appear for dinner, fellow priests went to his room and four.d him dead there. Beginning this week another distinguished by- line  Rev. Leo J. Trese  will join The Progress' long list of gifted writers Father Trese (pronounced Traysee), a wise and kind priest with a rich background in training and experience, in a column entitled, "God's World," will offer instruction and inspiration on the problems of living the Christian life today. For example, in his initial release on Page 4, he says the reason people worry so much is that, though they believe in God, they forget to trust Him. Father Trese, who first wrote for publication at the age of eleven, has authored 12 books, including "Many Are One," "Vessel of Clay," "Parent and Child" and his latest, "101 Delinquent Girls." One of the most widely read Catholic writers, he has written numerous newspaper and magazine articles and a Confraternity of Christian Doctrine series, "This We Believe." In demand as a lecturer and retreatmaster, Father Trese is currently chaplain at a home for the aged in Detroit. He also has been a pastor and a counselor to maladjusted girls. THE A. L.
