Besides the sharks, the surround

which the natives caught for them
selves and for the hospital patients.
Thefe was plenty to eat for all.
The island had already been
planted with corn (it sprouts in
four days in that rich soil) and
there are beets, beans, carrots and
even spinach. There are also dairy
cattle, ducks, chickens and pigs. At

sometimes a foot long, would

‘MaryknoU Comes to Sacred Heart’
“The Forum”, Sacred Heart High School Paper,
Prints Editors’ Interview With Sister Rose
of Lima, Formerly of Korea—Contrasts
Garb of Missionary Sister With
Uniforms of WAVES
/ and WAACS.
The evacuation of missionaries
from far-flung sectors of the
Orient, sad farewells, privations of
an eighty-seven day homeward
trip and the serene faith and con
i fidence of Sister Rose of Lima
combined to make “Maryknoll
Comes to Sacred Heart” a highly
interesting story in the current
issue of "The Forum", Sacred
Heart High school’s paper. The
current issue marks the first pub
lication of the 1942-43 series. The
Editors present a splendid word

touch to their "exclusive inter

Maryknoll Sister to the snappy

enrolled in the WAACS and

and Country in the armed forces,
The' latest WAVE or WAAC
uniform can’t begin to compare
with the snappy garb of a Mary
knoll Sister, and, computing the
achievements of both to date,
military army women and religious
army women, the latter could
profitably drop a little advice here
and there to the former, as we
have been convinced by a recent
delightful experience.
We sons and daughters of
Sacred Heart, eight strong, storm
ed the Convent, Sunday, Septem
ber 20, at twelve sharp to pounce
on poor Sister Rose of Lima and
beg her to give us a short inter
view and to pose for a photograph.
Sister Rose of Lima and three
other Sisters, who accompanied
her here, had been soliciting funds
at all the Masses that day. They
were delayed a little at the rectory,
so it was well after twelve when
Sister finally labored up the
mountain, so expertly scaled daily
by our own Sister. A little bit
winded, but smiling, she greeted
us, being duly introduced by S. M.
Valerian, Forum Adviser, and S.
M. Evelyn, Mission Director, who
seem to have been the power be
hind the interview. Sister, agreed
graciously to our request, and be
gan her story:
Whatever we expected to hear, as
disclosed by our awe-struck faces,
it could not ever have measured
up to one-fifth of what we actual
ly did hear.
Sister Rose of Lima has been
; in Korea for the last eleven years,
i Korea, we say? If you will re
call your geography you'll find
that Korea is a peninsula on the
, east coast of Asia between the
Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan.
You head correctly; Klrea is prac
I ttcally a spitting distance from
Japan and has been under her
formal domination since it was
annexed to the Japanese Empire
in 1910. The Mission itself was at
Shin-gi-shu, in the heart of the
city with government buildings
surrounding it.
The religious in the far east had
been advised by the United States
| Government to leave several times.
They remained, however at their
posts under direction from their
Bishop. But when the war actualy
began their safety had been so
threatened that they were finally
forced to evacuate.
Bister told us that in reality the
compound (the name applied to
the mission property) had been
under guard for the past two
years. No one was able to leave
it or to travel about the city or
i countryside without special gov
I eminent permission and even
with this they usually had a
guard. When the war broke out
many priests were imprisoned
and were unable to perform their
(uUes and some suffered horrible
ardxhips in the Korean prisons,
When the Anal ultimatum came
to evacuate Korea, or suffer the
consequences, the priests were al
lowed to say a last mass. The
doors were opened at three
o’clock in the morning at Bhln
gi-shu. and so great was the fer
vor and devotion of th: natives
• M*. 'it:
building was packed to overflow
ing. The whole congregation,
realizing that soon they would no
longer have the good priests and
sisters with them, wept a: a body,
and lamented tht'r approaching
loss. And their groans and cry
ing,Sister said, were something
“to remember to your dying day.”
Tearful Farewell
All this took place in the early
part of the month of June.
Immediately thereafter they
were herded away with their
scant possessions to the coast,
and as the party moved along,
missionaries from other locations
joined them, thin and haggaxJ,
some from being in prison, others
from the trying tension of those
last few days. Old friends met
and chatted and laughed, forget
ting, for the moment, their seri
ous plight in the joy of reunion.
At this point of their Journey
all the religions, to the number
of 120, were stationed in some
coast town in deserted barracks
composed of one not too large
room, and here, crowded in the
midst of filth and even covered
with vermin, they remained for
about two weeks. They used the
soiled bedclothes the soldiers had
left and ate food which in this
country we call by another name.
From Korea they went to
Tokio, where one of the fathers
died, and his body was burled in
that land. The government prom
ised that after the war they
would ship the priest’s body back ,
to Korea for a burial in the place
where he had labored so hard.
The remainder of the Journey
was made in a Japanese vessel,
the Asama Maru. On the side of
the boat was printed in large
black letters, “Diplomat,” and it
was constantly lighted at night.
Sister said that there was not so
much danger of being bombed or
torpedoed, because of the nature
of the boat, but there was plenty
of chance of hitting a stray mine
or two, a thought which did not
exactly cause one to rest in com
plete mental peace. A second ship
traveled with the Asama Maru so
that in the event of any such ac
cident, the unharmed.boat could
act as a relief vessel for the other.
S. S. Gripsholm
On they sailed throgh the
China Sea. At various ports they
stopped to pick up other passen
gers, but never were permitted
to go ashore. Sometimes they An
chored so far out that the city or
town was impossible to see. They
finally came to the east coast of
Africa. Here they were trans
ferred to the Gripsholm, a Swed
ish ship, and in it crossed the
Atlantic to Rio in Brazil.
On August 25, at 9 a. m., eighty
seven days from the time they
started, having spent sixty-eight
days on the sea and crossed five
oceans, they landed on Ellis Island,
and Sister confessed that the
thrill of seeing once again a real,
live, sea-worthy American sailor
will always be remembered as one
of the greatest Joys of her life.
From New York by devious roads
and channels Sister arrived at
Sacred Heart Parish on Septem
ber 20, apparently none the worse
for her terrible experiences and as
gay and light-hearted as a teenage
When Sister seemed about to
end her story the octet of en
tranced listeners begged her for
Sister mentioned again the grief
of the natives erylng in the church
that last day In Korea and the
weeping when they pulled out on
the boat bound for America. She
also said that thousands of Korea's

distance from us, yet so close to

persons, who, Just bom Into the
faith, now are deprived of their

of Lima. As Sister left the parlor,
her eight rapt listeners had a final
glimpse of that big smile with
which she had enhanced the tell
ing of her thrilling story. Her
final word was another request for
prayers as she proudly told us that
her three brothers are in the
service. Our feeble efforts to ex
press our appreciation followed her
on her way. as our gratitude and
prayers will follow her always.
