For Catholicism,
But Lacks Priests
NEW YORK (NO Japan
is experiencing “a second spring
time” hut sorely needs the service
of more priests.
Msgr Louis Akira Ogihara. S.J..
Apostolic Administrator of Hiro
shima, the city on which the first
atom bomb was dropped, brought
this word when he arrived here on
a world trip he is making on be
half of his vicariate.
Many Japanese are not content
with Shintoism, Buddhism or com
munism,” Msgr. Oginara said.
“Young people, especially, are
searching for truth and, as a rule,
Japanese Catholics are very pious.’’
The Monsignor said that in his
vicariate there are 6,800 Catholics,
compared to only 1,735 Catholics
in 1946. There are in the area 40
priests, 60 Sisters and four Catho
lic schools for girls There are
some 1,800 persons taking instruc
tion in the Catholic Faith at pres
ent.
The Monsignor said Our Lady’s
Memorial Shrine for World Peace,
which, with its cross overlooking
the city, has comp into existence
after the devastating bombing, is
symbolic of a “second springtime
for the Church" in Japan.

Not to sham
one's food with another was a
sin most displeasing to God.
Rather than be guilty of it the
people either would not eat or
pise they would go out in search
of the hungry who might share
their bounty. Sometimes this vir
tue is developed more highly in
the natural order among pagans
than among some who are sup
posed to be Christian. Herodo

torian, tells how’ after he wfas
shipwrecked on a barren coast,
strangers took him in, gave him
their best bed and even their
best food. It so endured in his
memory that he wrote a page
about it in his History. Among
the Moslems, w'hen a visitor
comes, and there is no food,
but nnly a single young lamb

The forum also heard a
talk by the Rev. Charles Keenan,
managing editor of America, who
emphasized the fact that the im
pression of American democracy
gained by African students in the
United States depends to a large
extent upon the treatment which
they as Negroes receive here.
American practices of discrimina
tion and segregation plant their
minds distrust of western ways, he
said.

James MacDewitt in 1948 aimed at

It would be grand if we could answer the plea of
good Father Joseph Khalife, pastor of 400 very
poor inhabitants of the mountain town of Dena,
Lebanon. Architect himself, with the people the
builders, he came to grief, because he has no fur
ther means to finish their House of God. He aska
for $500 to finish the chapel and give it the sacred
articles needed for Holy Mass. Perhaps you can
content the heart of this dear priest with a mite.
READ OUR PAMPHLETS on the Near East Missions. Your string*

GRACE IS LOV ELY
Sister Mary Grace is a novice with th* Sisters of
St. Joseph in India. God has called her to a life
of selfless devotion to our lepers and our aick poor.
Thia will come in two years, for she must be
trained, and this will cost $200. Can you make her
your adopted daughter in Christ? She will be
your shining star for eternity.
NOTHING IS SMALL
God judges the gift by the giver. So many must
make real sacrifices to give to our poor. It is a
bleating on our Near East Missions. Your dollar
monthly to a Mission Club, your mite given even
once to help one of our appeals, the smallest string

SOPHRONIUS UNCOMMON?
A certain great Sophronius, Bishop of th* Holy
City of Jerusalem in the year 638. had to “wel

FOR FIVE TERRIBLE YEARS th* Holy Father**
