for others, the more we help
ourselves. Our home parish, our
home dioceses have grave needs
and must be helped, but every
now and then we must think of
others, for by a Divine Paradox,
only by ‘Hosing our life do we
find it.” As sending the blood
to the extremities of the body
aids the heart, so making sacri
fices for poorer missions at home
and abroad helps the heart at
home. The persons and parishes
that are most blessed are those
who are most conscious of the
yearning for Christ among the
Christ-less people of the world.
The left side of the heart and
the right side of the heart have
no direct communication one
with another. There is communi
cation between them only after
the blood pours nut from one
side, and flows through the en
tire body and back again to the
other side. So in the Mystical
Body of Christ, each Catholic
and each parish has communion
and strength within itself, only
when it dispenses its plasm of
self-denial through all the cells
of the Mystical Body of Christ
throughout the world.

Capnchiifs Death
In Red Bulgaria
ROME (Radio, NC)—A Capuchin
priest has died in a prison in Com
munist dominated Bulgaria under
mysterious circumstances, accord
ing to SICO, information service of
the Sacred Congregation for the
Oriental Church.
The service said the priest was
42-year-old Father Fortunatus Bak
alscki. O M.. Cap., who had been
arrested July 18. and who was re
ported by the Bulgarian police to
have died of double pneumonia on
an unspecified day during August.
Suspicion centers on the cause
of Father Bakalscki’s death, SICO
said, because he was in robust
health at the time he was arrested.
It added that neither his religioui
superiors, nor his family or anyone
else, had been advised that he was
ill and in danger of death.
Father Bakalscki’s fate recalled
the case of another Bulgarian
Capuchin, Father Damiano, who
was arrested two years ago and
has been unheard of since. A re
port reaching Vienna last March
said the priest had only then been
brought to trail for his “hostile
attitude toward the communist re
tenue. He was condemned to 12
years’ imprisonment, the report
offer these sentiments of deepest gratitude to Bishop
Sheen and those wonderful diocesan directors of the Propagation
of the Faith, all of whom have been so good to the Near East.
