The Catholic Times Columbus 16, Ohio, Friday, August 15, 1952 The Sacred Priesthood To fulfil the duties of Holy Orders, common goodness does not suffice, but excelling good ness is required that they who receive Orders and are thereby higher in rank than the people, may also be higher in holiness. The Eucharistic Sacrifice in which the Immaculate Victim Who taketh away the sins of the world is immolated, re quires in a special way that the priest, by a holy and spotless life, should make himself as far as he can, less unworthy of God, to Whom he daily offers that adorable Victim, the very Word of God incarnate for love of us. “Realize what you are doing and imitate what you handle.” says the Church through the Bishop to the dea cons as they are about to be consecrated priests. From the Encyclical "Ad Catholici Sacerdotii" Of Pius XI Class War Is Alien To True Church Goals Objectives Are To Compose And Solve Differences Says Sovereign Pontiff CASTELGANDOLFO (Radio. NC)—In dealing with the labor problem, the objective of the Church is “the overcoming and composing of social differences,” not class struggle. This was made clear by His Hol iness Pope Pius XII in an address to Italian chaplains assigned to look after the spiritual needs of Italian emigrants to various Euro pean countries. “Tell your Catholic people,’ the Pope said, “that the Church has a'ways had. and will always have maternal concern for the workers”, and that her action “extends to ail classes and all conditions The Pope then pointed out that, at least in those countries where th chaplains and 'ne emigrants will go, “the labor question has long passed its first stages He went on to say: “What 60 or 70 years ago was a g. al to be gained for the worker, has since become, with the '’o"ab oiation of the Chur:h, his natural right and safe possession.” It was in this connection that the Pope added his reminder that class struggle is alien to the objectives of the Church. The papal audience fcr the enii gi.nts’ chaplains coincided with the publication of a new' Apostolic Constitution which cooidinates and regulates the wo k undertaken by various institutions of the Church in behalf of Catholic emigrants f-om all countres The Pontiff reminded the -hap lains that in tho work thev will mainly dea! with individuals and small groups wh*» lack the benefit of association with large Itai’.an n: tional communities like th-.se ex is* ng in other cunt nents. Hence, ho said, the chaplains must d’di cate a large part of their acti i:i°v to works of correr?! mercy r ps even legal help hi this way, the Holy Father added, ’.e emi grants will becor.° disposed toward bcmr recept or of spiritual aid which includes il.e ooss’bilitv cf matin'? eon pssion in Italian. The Pontiff also counseled the chaplains to urge their spiritual charges toward attending local churches and adapting themselves to the religious life of their new homes. He emphasized the import ance for the emigrants to make contact with local Catholic labor and youth organizations. -------------o------------------- Bishop To Attend Plaque Dedication To Major Gentile Bishop Ready will be present at the dedication of the memorial plaque in honor of Major Don Gen tile in the State House Yard, Co lumbus, Friday, Aug. 22 at 2 p. m.

He is buried in St. Joseph's Ceme tery. During the war, Major Gentile was credited with shooting down 19 German planes and destroying seven more on the ground. As top American ace in the European the ater. he flew 182 combat missions totalling 350 combat hours. The late President Roosevelt called him “Captain Courageous,” and Gen.

New Zealand and the Unit ed States have bid goodbye to Honolulu after what was describ ed as a highly successful meeting to implement the tripartite secur ity treaty signed in San Francisco last September as another weapon in the free world’s defense against communist aggression. The meetings’ main purpose was to set up political and military groups to plan the joint defense of the three nations in case of an aggression. In an extemporaneous talk after the meeting, U. S. Sec retary of State Dean Acheson la mented the need for military preparation but added: “If mili tary force is going to be used, then we also are going to be in a posi tion where we can stand up like men and not have to tremble and shrink when those who have mili tary power rattle the sabre in their arguments with us.” Commuinst reaction as express ed by Moscow’s Pravda, was to brand it “a new step on the road to the creation of an aggressive Pacific Bloc.” Izvestia, another Moscow Communist organ, said difficulties will arise because of “the growing national liberation movement in the Asian countries and also because of the inter imperialistic contradictions in the Pacific and particularly the contra dictions between the United States and Great Britain.” The inception of a defense alli Father Gieringer replaces the Very Rev.

In Cairo, Egypt’s new strong man. Gen. Mohammed Naguib, said he would welcome military aid from Britain or any other West Europe an country.
