Of Materialism
Holy Father Warn* Against
Drive To Incorporate
Individual Into Mass
COLOGNE, Germany (NC)
Woman has become the principal
target of a “destructive tendency
to absorb the individual in the
mass, His Holiness Pope Pius
XII warned in a longhand letter
to the German Association of Cath
olic Women which held its con
vention here.
His Eminence Josef Cardinal
Frings, Archbishop of Cologne, at
tended. as also did some 600 dele
gates and guests from the United
States, Belgium, Holland, Portugal
and Luxemburg.
Dr. Gerta Krabbel, for 27 years
president of the association, re
signed and was elected honorary
president. A seven-member board
of directors took over her execu
tive functions.
The Holy Father’s letter stated:
It seems that there is a conspira
cy to make it difficult for all men
and Christians to safeguard their
personal dignity, nay, even to
make it impossible.
“Technology and the business of
advertising and mass propaganda
in radio and motion pictures hard
afford a rest to the senses and
prevent concentration on one s in
nei self. A type of man is being
developed which cannot stand to
be alone with himself and his God
for even a single hour The in
dividual is being absorbed by the
mass.”
The Holy Father urged women
to counteract these tendencies by
upholding the dignity of the Chris
tian person, especially in family
life.
Matrimony and the family, the
letter said, “have already suffered
severe inroads such as the Church
has never experienced before
Let us make no mistake. Europe
an culture will be Christian and
Catholic without dilution, or else
it will be devoured by the prairie
fire of a materialistic culture
which has no regard for anything
but the mass and physical vio
lence.”

At least two societies helping to
organize the conference are known
members of the self-styled Inter
national Committee on Planned
Parenthood, of New York. It
spread to England four years ago
and has recently set up other cen
ters in many lands. One of the so
cieties concerned is the British
Family Planning Association.

l/.S| Leaders
His Eminence Bernard Cardinal
Griffin. Archbishop of Westmin
ster Archbishop Joseph Masterson
of Birmingham, and leading Cath
olic laymen are on its honorary
committee. Catholic leaders from
the United States and various Eu
ropean nations are expected.
The International Committee on
Planned Parenthood, 501 Madison
avenue, New York, boasts increas
ing successes in the propagation of
birth control ideas through the
establishment of local groups from
Cuba to Siam and from Japan
across Asia and Europe to the
United States. The only countries
mentioned where the Internation
al Committee does not appear to
be making progress are Catholic
Ireland and communist Russia.
Catholic opposition everywhere
appears to be a regular obstacle.
Mrs. Margaret Sanger, advocate of
birth control in the United States
since 1912, is the moving spirit
behind the committee.
The British Family Planning As
sociation set up a London head
quarters for her international com
mittee in 1948 with “a generous
grant” from the Brush Foundation
of Cleveland. The Eugenics Soci
ety, another collaborator inside
the Oxford conference, provided
the accommodation.
Mrs. Sanger claims 517 birth
control clinics in the United
States. Among her chief backers
are listed the Brush Foundation,
Dr. Abraham Stone, Dr. D. F. Mil
lam. Mrs. Dorothy Brush and Pro
fessor Frank Lorimer.

Joe Brcig Says
Reply To
I dislike intensely to take public
issue with a fellow-columnist. I
dislike especially to do so with
Father James Gillis whom I
reverence for many more reasons
than that he is the dean of living
Catholic columnists.
But Father Gillis, who is by way
of being what is called an isola
tionist, has repeatedly demanded
a definition of isolationism, and a
statement of how far the non-iso
lationis.ts believe that America
should go “to set things right in
al) the world.”
Well, nobody can set everything
right But I do think that Father
Gillis’ views on this one matter are
dangerous because he
persuade readers that
should not do nearly as
she is doing to set right
be righted. It seems to
his view ought to be refuted.

a smear
lationist
who, without realizing what he is
proposing, wants America to cast
aside what I may call the Cross of
the World, which has been laid up
on our country by an inscrutable
Providence.
I cannot think of any other def
inition which is historically accur
ate. and exact enough to go to the
whole heart of the matter, and yet
broad enough to cover every shade
of isolationism, and every twist
and turn of it.
1 have every sympathy with the
isolationists except with those
who are hypocrites, like the Com
munists. I was an isolationist my
self before Pearl Harbor—partly
because I was a sentimentalist, and
partly because hatred of war had
been woven into my very being
by my temperament, and by the
fact that my ancestors had fled
from Europe to escape militar
ism.
But plain, bitter facts facts
that had to be faced—forced me to
change. And gradually I came to
see that America has long
carrying a cross—a terrible
but proud and noble, too.

the voices of the tormented cried

Now we bear one more cross—
the cross of the crusader who
stands against godless Communist
despotism and aggression against
terror, atheist persecution, torture
and death, against atheist perver
sion of the minds of the world’s
children by men who hate every
thing decent and good.
Can we refuse that cross? I

Father Gillis has asked for a
straighl answer to this question
“Do you propose to go to war if
necessary in the attempt to set
things right in all the world?”
The answer is yes, if necessary.
I do not believe it will be nec
essary. Our I^idy has promised
that the world can be saved by
prayer and sacrifice—including, I
think, the sacrifice that Americans
are making to relieve the world’s
distress and to strengthen the
world’s defenses.
But if war it must be. then yes.
There are far worse things even
than an atomic war. One of those
things is enslavement of ourselves
and our children under men who
hate God, who would transform all
the earth into one monstrous blas
phemy, one incarnate hell.
