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.

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. Di
rector of the Society for the Prop
agation of the Faith for the Dio
cese of Columbus.

Columbus Cultivates Another Kind Of Garden 14th Centurv
Rosebushes Of St.

Faith Over World
V .J®
a-M
Father Jamas Kulp, Director of the Society for the Propagstion
of the Faith, confers with the Misses Marie and Helen Hammack
on plans for the work of the "Missionary Rosebushes of St Therese"
in the Diocese of Columbus. 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.

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

through Peiping, China.” By this
he means that Europe would be

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

Catholic Home Sought
For 12-Year-Old Boy
Are you willing to give a 12
year-old boy a good home? The
lad has not had a real home
since he was an infant. 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.

recently expelled from South Chi

there.
“Despite all that missioners

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.

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.”
