One day, as the sisters at the hospital head quarters of Fr. Graham’s mission were returning from Mass, they found a small infant wrapped in papers lying at the side of the road. With Fr. Graham’s permis sion. the baby was taken to his mission 100 miles distant where trained baby specialists could care for it. Several weeks later, Fr.

For the third time since the war, German Catholic boy scouts have succeeded in carrying a light lit at the shrine of Our Lady of Cathol ic youth headquarters near here to Berlin, the former German cap ital. Once the scouts had reached the borders of the Soviet Zone, they bore the light, by surreptious means, all across the communist ruled area until they reached the western sectors of the city. There the light was handed over to Ca tholic youths who had come from the Soviet zone itself. They, in turn, carried it to every part of the Soviet realm of Germany, as a trib ute to the Blessed Virgin. A traditional pilgrimage afoot across three countries—Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium—was re sumer this year for the first time since the war.

The work at the new school, con ducted by three Brothers, is de picted in a documentary film on the activities of the teaching Con gregation in the Belgian Congo, which was presented at the Col lege of St. Joseph here. The film was described here by the Fides News Agency, as “a truly artistic production." Made with the help of the government of the Congo, it traces the educa tional work of the Brothers of the Christian Schools since the first Brother arrived in 1909. There are 90 Brothers of the community in the Congo at pres ent. Fides reported, 30 being Con golese. The Brothers have three “official” schools at Boma, Leo poldville, and Coquilhatville, and several primary, normal and mid dle schools throughout the coun try. They also have special train ing centers where instruction is given in agriculture and in the arts and crafts.

The laymen in cluded driver, a factory worker, a truck a clerk and an apprentice, modeled their movement organization set up earlier on the in Belgium by Canon Joseph Car dijn and took its name. Together they studied the social encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII as the basis for their work Their aims were to pro tect the dignity of workers and ap prentices. organize the apprentice system, provide job security and aid the unemployed. Helped by Father Cardijn and the late Louis Cardinal Lucon. Archbishop of Reims, the Jocisl movement grew rapidly. In 1931 more than 1,000 members made a pilgrimage to Rome. In 1937 some 85,000 Jocists gathered in a Paris stadium to hear a 10th anniversary Mass celebrated by a former mem ber. World War II interrupted the or ganization's growth. When nazi oc cupation forces outlawed the JOC, jailed Father Guerin and executed a number nf members, it had to go underground. But it continued to work in prisons, concentration camps and even among deportees at forced labor in German factor ies. After the liberation it resumed its growth and now in its 25th year includes 400,000 members. On the occasion of its anniver sary, the chaplain general of JOC received a letter from Msgr. Gio vanni B. Montini, Substitute Vati can Secretary of State, written for the Holy Father. Msgr. Montini wrote: “The Jocist movement has shown itself to be a providential form of the Church's presence the world of labor, whene it has been, alas, too often ignored. It offers to par ishes, with which it has established close cooperation, a unique chance to expand the field of their apos tolate.” Network Program To Feature Bishop Sheen, Missionary NEW YORK (NC) The four point plan of the White Fathers in Africa will be discussed by Bishop Fulton J.

From Mother Elisabeth and her eight cloistered companions in the Carmel of Heraklion, Athens, comes this hesitant appeal for aid: “Twenty years ago, on this hill above Athens, our little Cannel was founded. Even ten years ago we had only two cloistered Sisters. Now we are nine, not a big community but an awfully poor one. “We need only $300 to feed and clothe the whole community for a year! But even that amount is hard to get. And then our little “cells" occupy the whole space of 20 by 18 feet. We have made attempts to build more but the cost is $1,000 and that is out ol the question. You have been so good to us and we must turn to you once more.” Well, we have been good In the sense that we send two food pack ages, each costing $10, to the Sisters monthly, with a few stringless gifts, whenever they come our way. Perhaps you will want to help this cloistered Carmel, w'here they pray for us night and day. It seems that God demands great poverty of His chosen daughters. Any gift—$1, $10. $100—will be God's answer to those who really love Him.
