THE CHANCERY Business: By Order of the Most Reverend Archbishop December 25, 1964. Victory Over Obstacles To Christian Unity January Rosary ln00enfion The new year of 1965 brings the Morning Offering a new look. It is through the Morning Offering of the Apostleship of Prayer that we ask God to grant the Holy Father's Month- ly Intention. The Intention for January, "Victory Over Obstacles to Christian Unity," is especially appropriate for beginning a new year. It brings to mind our gratitude to God for giving us the grace to live as Christians and emphasizes our obligation to help others in gaining the grace to enter and live in the happiness of Christianity. "To whom much has been given much is expected." This saying applies to all those for- tunate enough to have been born Christians or become con- verted through their own and or the efforts of others. As we say the "new" Morn- ing Offering, which is really only slightly changed, we will begin with the Holy Father's Intention for January as fol- lows: "0 Jesus, through the Immac- ulate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the inten- tions of your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, repara- tion for sin, the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our Bishops and of all members of the Apostle- ship of Prayer, and in particu- lar for victory over obstacles to Christian unity." Fr. Bolger Guadalupe FriJav Dec 25, 1%4 THE PROGRE, SS_3- Suffers College Change in Dress Hot Two Strokes Dedicated Approximately six weeks of recovery now feces Rev.

He has "some slight use of his left arm," said his cousin, Bernard Conlin of Minneapo- lis. His speech has also been affected. But he is also able to sit up in bed. Therapy is hoped to be be- gun some six weeks from now, possibly in the Seattle area. He was provincial of the Redemptorist western prov- ince for 12 years before be- coming pastor of Seattle's Sacred Heart Parish. He was reassigned to the Palisades five years ago. A sister and brother reside in Columbus, where he was reared and educated. Ladies, 'Aft Christmas Message Urges Disarmament (Continued From Page 1) not only to the advantage of the particular countries con- cerned but also to the others in course of development or in a state of need. "Hunger and misery, sick- Q ness and ignorance still cry out for remedies. In this age of plenty and of brotherhood, we do not hesitate to make our own once more the pleas of the innumerable poor and suffering of today, in need of genuine and substantial relief." The Pope recognized that: many difficulties "lie across the path of freedom and friend- ship in social life." But, he :said, "we never grc, w tired of urging love for one's neighbor as the basic principle of any truly human' society." The Pope in closing his talk extended his particular good Concelebration Permitted Monks Q NEWTON, N.J.

Masses were concelebrated for Q four December 14 to 17, days, during the annual retreat. Father Plus Kiernan, O.S,B., prior of St. Paul's, said he ',found it a very satisfying way of offering Mass.

He also sent his blessing to priests, religious men and women, missionaries and to all Christian fa|uilies. "May the newly born Child bring to them the comfort of love and the sweetness of a renewed confidence: and may He likewise spur all who have the newer and the means -- Those most of all who are re- sponsible for the common good --to unite in a constructive ef- fort, to bring effective solidar- ity, new means, and suitable plans to bear on the immense needs of the world's poor and ell their hopes which cannot continue to be disregarded." Tax Exemption Suit Dismissed BALTIMORE (NC)--A Balti- more Circuit Court judge has thrown out the suit against property tax exemptions for churches which was filed by self-avowed atheist Mrs. Mada- lyn Murray. Judge Wilson Barnes said December 17 he would explain the basis for his dismissal in a memorandum later. Mrs. Murray and those who support her suit have 30 days to appeal to the Maryland Court of Apeals. In Honolulu, Hawaii, where she now re- sides, Mrs. Murray told in- quiring newsmen she plans an appeal.

'Encounter With Religion Stirs Students LIVERPOOL, England (NC) -- Closed-circuit TV wa s brought into play at Liverpool University to accomodate over- flow crowds at four-day dis- cussions described as an "en- counter" w i t h Christianity. Five Catholic priests and the Anglican Archbishop Michael Topic Among Sisters BATON ROUGE, La.  A survey here shows , that the dramatic change in attire made by Ursuline Sisters m Oklahoma has been a hot topic of conver- i' sation in convents. The division of opinion is shown in one comment i Ihat such modern garb would permit closer relationship with students, while another thought lhe attire made the Sisters look as if they were wearing a parochial school pupil's uni- form. The Oklahoma City Sisters, teachers at McGuinnes High School. recently abandoned their traditional garb and sub- stituted a dark, street-length skirt, long-sleeved white blouse, and a sleeveless dark weskit decorated with the Ursuline crest. In place of a bonnet, they are wearing a small head- band. "I'm for the change," a school teacher of Notre Dame said emphatically when ques- tioned by the Catholic Commen- tator, newspaper of the Baton Rouge diocese." "There are a lot of places in which we are now spectac- les," she added. "In a new habit, we could stand up and take our places in any field, difficult for the older Sisters ': because they have worn this ' habit for so long." , Superior Sees No Need For *: Drastic Change CINCINNATI (NC)  , The head of 900 Sisters ) of Mercy has said her com- i munity will change its garb, / but that "a drastic change is neither needed nor desired." Mother Mary Albert, superior for the community's Cincinnati, province, said complete secu- larization of the habit is jarring to hy people, will not make Sisters closer to those they serve and will not definitely in. crease vocations.

We think it made, the habit still will be would attract more girls to the Sisterhood," she said. One Daughter of Charity, whose community recently abandoned its traditional attire and switched to a simple garb, was doubtful. "Maybe it will bring more "something that sets a Relig- ious apart and indicates her total consecration to her Divine Spouse and the works of the apostolate in His service." Emphasizing that the habit ' "is only of secondary impor- tance," Mother Mary Albert Ramsay of Canterbury were vocations. Yet, it is almost like in the team of 16 clergymen leading the discussions, being a lay teacher," she said. The program was aimed at getting the basic :Christian ten- ets across to the university's 5,000 students, and encouraging a dialogue between those of differing viewpoints. 'Fate of Church' In U SS R ASHINGTON  Statistics purport- ing to reflect "the fate of the Catholic Church" in the Soviet Union and occupied countries over four de- cades are given in a Congressional doc- ument which has made its appearance. A study made by a team of research special- ists for' the Judiciai'y C0mmiffee of the U. S. House of Representatives contains a paragraph which says: "The fate of the Catholic Church in the USSR and countries occupied by the Russians from 1917 to 1959 shows the following: (a) the number killed: 55 bishops; 12,800 priests and monks; 2.5 million Catholic believers; (b) irn- prisoned or deported: 199 bishops; 32,000 priests and 10 million believers; (c) 15,700 priests were forced to abandon their priesthood and ac- cept other jobs; and (d) 8,334 theological semi- naries were dissolved; 1,600" monasteries were nationalized, 31,779 churches were Closed, 400 newspapers were prohibited and all the Catholic organizations were dissolved." It is also stated that "the same fate met the Islamic religion." The study says "the whole Ukranian Auto- cephalic Orthodox Church, with all its clergy, was dissolved and many of its members were deported to Siberia." The study is entitled "Nations, Peoples, and Countries in the USSR," and in the words of its director, concentrates "largely on what is the official policy of genocide concern- ing non-Russian populations in the USSR." The study was made by Dr. Lee E. Dobri- ansky of Georgetown University here, whose co-workers were Dr. Wasyl Shimoniak of Mar- quette University, Milwaukee, and Salvatore L. Constabile of Georgetown. Dr. Dobriansky introduced the study before the committee. He noted that it is "more ac- curate scientifically to speak of populations in the Soviet Union," and said the various "distinct national organisms" are not the same as the "so-called ethnic groups here in the United States." He reminded, too, that there are many forms of genocide, and that the form it took under Khrushchev was "more subtle" than it was under Stalin, "but nevertheless the objec- tive is the same, namely, the so-called assimi- lation of the many non-Russian nations and peo- ples in the USSR." The researcher said it was Lunfortunately the notion of many that genocide involves solely the physical destruction of people. He said its many forms include the elimination of languages and the suppression ef religious forms. The study that the Russian Reds began in 1918 to confiscate church property, While assert- ing that "every citizen has the right to practice or not practice religion." Some forms of re- ligious practices could still be carried on some years later, despite progressive steps against religion, the study says, and in 1929, the Soviet criminal code was made to prohibit the organi- zation of any prayer gatherings and to provide severe punishments for those who broke the law. These punishments ranged from three years' im- prisonment to the "highest measures of socialist defense -- death by shooting." Admitting it is hard to establish precisely the number of victims of Russian genocide, because Soviet statistical publications "are far from accurate," the study says. "Combining Soviet Russian data with the data of eye witnesses and foreign specialists of Russian policies, one can see that the famines of 1920-24 and 1932-33, the purges throughout the entire colonialist Soviet regime, slave labor, and deportations affected more non-Russian nation- als than the Russian people itself. Today, there would be at least more than 8 million Ukranians alive, 3 million Kazakhs, Poles, Jews, Germans, Kalmyks, Finns, Latvians, etc., at least a 20 million total if it Were not for the Soviet Rus- sian policy Qf imperiocolonialism and the Rus- sian desire to conquer other nations." As for future changes in her community, she commented: "The change in the fall was enough for right now." A Carmelite Sister, who said her community is contemplat- ing a change, said the Oklaho- ma experiment had caused much discussion. She did not favor a sharp change. "Personally," she said, "I think the habit is a symbol or more than just a mode of dress. I feel it is a symbol of a way of life. I think the habits now are more in keeping with the Religious life." Sister thought that perhaps too much emphasis was being placed on dress instead of interior life. "Modification, Yes," she said. "Radical change, no." A Sister of St. Joseph said that the Oklahoma nun's dress does not strike her as a Sister's garb.

And you can bet a drumstick that what happened last year didn't happen last Thanksgiving. A year ago, the young Col- umban pastor of St. Francis de Sales church here decided to raise his own gobbler. He bought plenty of grain for it and watched his bird grow to a hefty 14 pounds. His cook, Kuri- yama-san, outdid herself in the trimmin's and the feast looked fit for a king. i declared; "We came to re- ligion to serve God and His Church according to a certain mode of life; it was not to wear a particular garb." "I feel thin many people re- spect the Sisters because of their habit," she said. "The argument that young . people would more readily confide their problems to one dressed as they are, simply does not hold. We are the re- cipients of far more confi- dences now, dressed as we are, than the critics whe use that argument could ever imagine." Would a change of habit be the means of getting more cand!dates? .
