Since 1890 Colored Seminary For Native New Guineans Planned WEWAK, New Guinea—Bagar am, on Kairiru island near here, has been chosen as the site of a new regional seminary in Central New Guinea for the training of na tive seminarians. The site was chosen by the Rev. Clarence J. Howard. S.V.D., former editor of St. Augustine's Messenger at Bay St. Louis, Miss., who was sent to New Guinea last year to establish and direct the seminary. A native of Rocky Mount, N. C., father Howard was the first colored priest of the Divine Word Mission aries to be assigned to foreign mis sion work outside of Africa. He ar rived in Wewak Feb. 12. Father Howard recalled that Ba garam was the site of a flourishing mission before the war. but the Japanese used it as a supply base, with the result that American fliers subjected it to heavy bombing. “We are going to have to build o.. seminary from the ground up,” the priest reported. “Good build ing material, especially cement, nails and paint, are hard to get here. We certainly would appreci ate any of our friends helping to supply these needs." Father Howard was formerly As. sistant Provincial of the S.V.D.’s Southern Province in the United States. ----------------—o Italy Gets Canadian Aid MONTREAL—(NC) Some 630 crates of clothes, medicine and oth er supplies, valued at $25,000 have just been shipped to Naples.

Not long ago, the City of Colum bus announced plans for the in ception of one of the largest and most beautiful municipal rose gar gens in the world. What most people may not know is that this city has already under painstaking and loving cultivation a rose garden of another sort, and that this garden ships its blooms all over the world. This is the garden of the “Mis sionary Rosebushes of St. Therese.” Its blooms are seminarians trained in foreign lands with money col lected here to pay for their educa tion. To The "Little Flower99 These Columbus “Rosebushes" are matched in parishes all over the land and are the work of grati tude to St. Therese of the Child Jesus, started some 30 years ago by a Manchester, N.H. woman. Miss Irene Farley, cured of acute tuber, culosis after making a novena to the "Little Flower,” patroness of world-wide missions. Already the result has been the training of some 400 seminarians in China. India and Africa, though the work is not confined to those countries. More than half a million dollars have been raised all over the Unit ed States in the three decades since the movement started in a single parish in the New Hampshire citv. Quietly and slowly it spread to oth er parishes, other states, till it had its Columbus beginnings last Jan uary, through the offices of a Lan caster young woman who came to Columbus to live. She is Miss Helen Hammack, a secretary in the college of engi neering at Ohio State University, living here at 28 East Woodruff avenue. Since January, the roots of the rosebushes have spread to 10 parishes in the city, where members donate a pledged 25 cents a month. In six short months. $200 have already been raised. The work is going on under the direc tion of the Rev. James Kulp.

Some $200 was garnered In six months from 10 local parishes as the first flowering here of the "Little Flow er's" rosebushes. A “Rosebush” consists of 20 members, and the member who gathers these 20 members is call ed a “Rose Gardener.” All moneys collected are sent to Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, National Director of the Propagation of the Faith.” Father Kulp said that the cost of educating a seminarian in such lands as China. India and Africa is about five dollars a month, repre senting the monthly 25-cent col lections of a single "Rosebush” of 20 members. He said, “Many young men in these lands want to become priests and there are hundreds of thousands of natives who have no spiritual guidance whatsoever. A fertile garden, indeed, especially when we consider that the oppon ent in winning the souls of these poor people is communism, to which, in their despair, they may turn, unless offered the Word of God.” Men. as well as women, are en gaged in the work. Father Kulp said. Parishes where ‘Rosebushes’’ are growing are: St. Joseph's. St. Patrick’s. St. Ladislaus, Immaculate Conception, St. Aloysius, Holy Name. St. l*o, Our Lady of Peace. St. Mary’s. Groveport, and in the Catholic Youth Organization. God Love You--------------- Modern Martyrs Crucified And Crowned Willi Thorns The Holy Fa ther’s Society for the Props gation of the Faith main tains 614 areas in the mission ary world, each of which aver ages as large as the State of New York. It aids every mis sionary society help maintain mentary schools, 174 leprosaria and 3,162 dispensaries. The sac rifices you make we send direct ly to Rome to be distributed by the Holy Father Himself to the missionaries China is our greatest worry. There were 143 dioceses or prefectures apostolic in China a few years ago. After 4 years, 61 Bishops remain but they are not allowed to have any contact with their faithful and are under house arrest. This is equivalent to the destruction of all the Cathedrals, schools, or phanages, convents, hospitals and monasteries in 57% of the dioceses of the United States with 43% of the Bishops under house arrest. Picture 36 Arch bishops and Bishops of the Unit ed States in prison, 7 of them dy ing in prison and you have some idea of the persecution in China! The number of priests known to be in Chinese prisons is at least by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen----------------- Crowning with thorns has re cently been revived by the young Communists in China who de manded also that Sister Superior of the Catholic hospital in Chao tung be crucified Years ago, Lenin said: “Remember, the shortest route to Paris passes through Peiping, China.” By this he means that Europe would be conquered after Asia was con quered. 33% of the population of the world ia today under Com munist control! What does this mean to you? Do you depend on politicians to stop Communism? It takes a faith to meet a faith a belief in Christ to overcome a belief in anti-Christ. This faith in Christ becomes concrete only in prayer and sacrifice ... If you had a World Mission Rosary and each day the yellow beads reminded you of China, Korea and Vietnam, you would pray for these people. At your request and a $2 offering, we will send you one blessed by me .. When the Irish Catholics were perse cuted they brought the faith to America. Today, the persecuted Chinese Catholics are bringing the faith to Formosa. Since 1945, the increase in the number of Catholics is 40%. 1,500 converts are under instruction, 250 of whom are university students. Sacrifice! Deny yourself some thing. Give up something in the name of Jesus and Mary. This is what others are doing! You make an act of faith each time you allow Him to decide where your sacrifice should be sent. Pin your sacrifice to this column, tear out and send to the Most Reverend Fulton J.

He has been in institutions since his fa ther died and his mother was forced to give him up because of illness. He’s a healthy boy, likes to play football and baseball, is rather small for his age, and is quiet and frank. He needs play mates and the kind of attention and affection found in a Catho lie home. If necessary, the Cath olic Welfare Bureau will pay the cost of keeping him in your home. For details call the Bu reau at MA. 5891. Reds Rule Chii Says Expelled HONG KONG (NC) The idea that communist China will fall from within is “the wildest of wish ful thinking,” according to the Rev. John J. Tierney, Maryknoll missioner from New York. He was recently expelled from South Chi na after 25 years of mission work there. “Despite all that missioners have done in China, a Christian would hardly dare look at us to day,” Father Tierney said. “Had 1 not seen it with my own eyes I Van Fleel Lauds Catholics For Aid To Korean Needy NEW YORK (NC)-The gener osity of U.S. Catholics in aiding the homeless of Korea has been prais ed highly by Gen. James A. Van Fleet, commander of the U.S. Eighth Army forces in Korea. The general’s praise was con tained in a letter to Msgr. George M. Carroll, before the Maryknoll Missioner left Korea for the United States. Msgr. Carroll has served in Ko rea as WRS- N.C.W.C. representa tive as a correspondent for the N. C.W.C. News Service, and as Ad. ministrator Apostolic of Pyong yang, the communist capital of Korea. In his letter Gen. Van Fleet slat ed: “It gives me great pleasure lo express my appreciation to you and to the National Catholic Welfare Conference on the splendid work you have done here. Please convey my appreciation to the National (. atholic Welfare Conference for the services they have rendered and the large amount of relief sup plies donated to help the war suf ferers in Korea. "During the past year you have been working tremendously hard to alleviate the suffering and mis ery that is always present in a war zone, and particularly has that been true in Korea.” Catholic Tomb Found In China ROME—(NC)—The discovery of a 14th century tombstone marking the burial place of a European Christian woman may throw new light on the early history of Chris tianity in China According to Osservatore Ro mano, the tombstone was found a few months ago in the city of Yangchow, Kiangsu province, when workers tore down an old wall to use the stones for new construc tion. The Mone bears the follow ing Latin inscription: In nomine Domini. Amen. Hie jacet Katerina de Viljonis quae obiit in anno Do* npni mileximo CCCXXXXI1 de mense Junii.”( In the name of the Lord. Amen. Here rests Katerina de Viljonis who died in the year of Our Lord, 1342. in the month of June.) The stone shows, Osservatore reports, the Blessed Virgin holding the Child while seated on a round Chinese bench. The epitaph men tions the martyrdom of St. Cath erine of Alexandria. It shows the wheel, symbol of her martyrdom, and the angels carrying her to heaven. In commenting on the discovery, the Vatican City daily points out that the existing documents relat ing to the Franciscan missionary efforts in China at the end of the 13th century make no mention of any European women in that country. Hence, the discovery of the tombstone in Yangchow, where Marco Polo was governor for more than three years, is an archeolog ical event of first importance. While nothing is known about the identity of Katerina de Vil jonis, it is not considered possible that she was a Religious The first Catholic missionary Sisters went to China in the 19th Century. ia At Gunpoint Marvkuoller would find it hard to believe such a change possible. II ishful Thinking “For the present there is no hope, and let no one hope, that a communist state will fall from within. That is the wildest of wish ful thinking, for the Chinese are a nation of grovelling slaves who dare not question the will of the government in any matter, regard less of how personal or unpleasant. Obey like a dog is the only chance left, for the time has passed when anyone but the man with the gun has a say in anything.” During the past two years, Fa ther Tierney reported, he has seen poor and rich alike liquidated, with a barbarity equal to the most fiend ish methods of uncivilized people. Anyone who opens his mouth to criticize the least action of the government automatically becomes an enemy of the state. Scores of people commit suicide daily, their only means of freeipg themselves from the evils of communism. “Disgusting as it all is, we can learn a lesson from the common ists,” Father Tierney added, “for they are missioners of a sort, one hundred per cent. If we had start ed Catholic cells all around and followed them up as they did, we might have a different story to tell today. Diabolism Complete “You cannot imagine anything so diabolically complete. They talk communism, study communistic books, and go to school at night to listen to communistic propaganda, which now is ‘down with America and kill the American devils.’ “They read only communistic newspapers because there are no others. Loud speakers give noth ing but their own news students at school study a brand-new set of textbooks with accents on what Russia is doing for the world’s poor. It is so bad that it all seems like a horrible nightmare, but it is very real. If the Church cannot combat it, woe to the world.” 1652 Oakland Park Wed.
