Wages War Against
Enemies of Church
INNSBRUCK, Austria (NC)—
Per Volksbote, Catholic weekly
here, has called for a world-wide
campaign for the signatures of
Christians, Moslems and Jews to
a resolution demanding religious
freedom in communist-dominated
count The resolution with
these signatures should then be
forwarded to the United Nations,
Hundreds of millions of such
signatures would serve true peace
and set in motion a force which
would make communist regimes
slow down their persecution of re
ligion, the paper says.
Catholics throughout the world
have a particular obligation to pro
vide the initiative for such a move
ment. according to the paper.
“It is the scandal of the 20th cen
tury,’ the Volksbote declares, “that
among the 340 million Catholics so
few are active in word and deed to
help by prayer and action their
brethren in the Faith who are sub
jected to the greatest church per
secution in history.’’ There arc 60
million persecuted Catholics be

What fhp Holy Father Does With Yonr Money—
40c goes to home missioners in America
9c to the Catholic Near East
51c to the foreign missions
In the foreign missions the Holy Father has to supnort—
97,758 missionaries 15,600 seminarians
45.000 schools 2,300 colleges
3.132 dispensaries 1,200 hosnitals
175 leper asvlums 1,720 orphanages
260 homes for the aged
54,000,000 aged, sick, children, victims of leprosy were cared for
by the missionaries last year.
The HoJv Father’s way of combating Communism is to erect
the Cross and the altar as a spiritual fortress against the
Hammer and the Sickle.
Outlined by Bi
The Pope has pointed out seven
ways for the faithful to help the
Church’s world wide missions,
Bishop Fulton J. Sheen writes
the current issue of WORLDMIS
SION (of which he is editor-in
The seven mission aids are:
prayers of the faithful, adoption
of native priests, zeal by the cler
gy, prayers and sacrifices of chil
dren, women in altar societies, fos
tering vocations, and general alms.
Bishop Sheen, who is national
director of the Society for the
Propagation of the Faith, enumer
ates the list in a commentary on
the Holy’s Father’s recent en
cyclical on the missions, entitled
On the subject of alms, the
“Each missionary society has to
train its missionaries and aid its
members in the field. But since
only four per cent of the total
number of missionaries are from
America, it follows that the Hoiy
See has to support most of the oth
ers. There are 27,000 priests on the
foreign missions, 10,000 Brothers
and 63,000 Sisters, 85,000 cate
chists and 94,000 lay teachers, all
of whom have to live. But in order
to work they have to support their
42,000 elementary schools, 4,000
high schools, 2,200 colleges and
professional schools, 1,200 hospit
als. 3,200 dispensaries, 180 lepro
saria, 1,800 orphanages and 270
homes for the aged.”
U. S. Biggest Giver
Bishop Sheen then goes on to
say that over 50 per cent of the
total contributed for the missions
of the world comes from the Unit
ed States, the per capital contribu
tion of American Catholics in a
year being 13 cents. The next high
est, he says, is “little Luxem
bourg” with 11 cents, and the next
highest nations rate as follows:
French Canada, eight cents, New
Zealand, New Hebrides and Baha
mas 7 cents, Australia. Malta and
Ireland six cents and Belgium and
the Netherlands five cents.
“There is no necessary relation
between the economic status of a
country and the alms contributed,”
the Bishop writes. “Christian alms
are not given because of superflu
ity, but because of the intensity of
the faith. When, however, one real
izes how much is spent on other
things, the alms are still very
low. The average Catholic Amer
ican last year gave 13 cents to the
Holy See for missions, but he also
averaged $8.60 on the movies. One
could dream about the moral stat
ure of America if the figures were
reversed and 13 cents were spent
on movies and $8 60 on Evangelii
Speaking on the adoption of na
tive priests, Bishop Sheen notes
that the per capita income in In
dia is $56 a year, in China .$26 and
in Kenya Colony, Africa. $21. He
adds: “Many of the best-intention
ed Catholic families in these lands
could not possibly afford to edu-

even though he had the vocation.
So the Church must look else
where. It looks particularly to the

World Vision Needed
As to the zeal of the clergy, the
Bishop notes that the priest is bid
den to enlarge the horizons of his
apostolic zeal, so as to think not in
terms of parish or diocese alone,
but to have universal sympathy for
all mankind. He writes that “the
Savior said to every priest: 'Go
teach all nations,’ not ‘Go teach St.
Joseph's parish’.” On the mission
aid of women in altar societies,
Bishop Sheen writes:
“Women cannot bring the bread
and wine to the altar as sacristans,
but they can prepare linens, the
vestments, the copes and the chas
ubles for the Holy Sacrifice. What
a joy to the Eucharistic Heart of
the Savior, when the power of His
Resurrection is re-enacted in the
Mass, to see the natives of Africa,
China and Japan lift up the hosts
and chalice from the altar linens
wrought by the Catholic women of
America as a proof that all peoples
are one in this supernal act of

most sacrificing for His Missions.
