Sacrifice of Comfort Sleep,
Pay off Huge Church Debt
................by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
Trtiis atory will illustrate how
sacrifices done for Our Lord are
rewarded a hundred fold. A very
aealous
pastor
in the missions
was complain
ing that his
people lack
ed xeal and
though they
had little of
thia world’s
goods, they
were
able to cut down on his heavy
debt of what in our money
•mounted to $200,000.
Another missionary priest sug
gested to him that he begin
his
church perpetual adoration
of Our Lord in the Blessed Sac
rament, night and day. One Sun
day the pastor announced his
plan for sacrifice of comfort and
Bleep
giving his people three
weeks
to hand in their names if
they were willing to make a
Roly Hour, either during the day
or the night. At the end
of that time a sufficient number
expressed themselves as ready
to
watch and pray before the
Eucharistic Lord.
At no time within the next five
months did anyone fail to keep
his
appointed Hour of prayer

even the color lines in the par
ish which before were embar
rassing, now began to dissolve
as the faithful sensed their one
ness before their one Lord. The
pastor never once spoke of his
debt, but he gave constant inspir
ation to his people by his Eu
charistic vigils. At the end of
five months $135,000 of the
debt has been paid. A few weeks
later in far off England someone
who had heard of the perpetual
adoration died leaving $65,000
thus wiping out the entire debt
in less than a year.
See what others are doing
GOD LOVE YOU to A C. “I
want a favor so badly that I was
tempted to promise $10 when I
receive it. Instead I am paying in
advance Why should God always
give first” GOD LOVE YOU
to A D. “Enclosed is $5 which
I have saved by giving up that
extra bag of potato chips or can
dy bar for lunch at school. With
a little more self-restraint, I’m
sure I can send more next time.’’
GOD LOVE YOU to Mrs.
“Enclosed is $1820 for the Mis
sions. This represents a third of
the money I earned working ov
ertime GOD LOVE YOU to
Y “Enclosed is $35. the mon
ey I have saved toward a down
payment for an automobile. I am
sending it along with my pray
ers for those who are in much
greater need than I.” GOD
LOVE YOU to Mrs. EDS. for
$5 the money she saved by not
buying a pair of fur-lined gloves.

uted 63 per cent of all th- money
given to the 614 missionary areas
of the Church throughout the
world last year But that only
amounted to a Catholic per capita
contribution of 16 cents.
Auxiliary Bishop Fulton J.
Sheen of New York .says that while
that figure could be a lot better,
it is better by five cents than the
per capital figure of the next best
country. New Zealand. The aver
age donated by all of the worlds
Catholics is just 'wo cents
While his television work and
duties as Auxiliary Bishop ol Xew
York take up a lot of his time.

he is national director
Bishop Sheen said that the sori
rty “is the largest humanitarian
service in the world During 1952
he said, “the society cared lor
80,000,000 people in thousands ol
institutions all over the world
80 per cent ot them pagans.”
Not even the United Nations has
an agency so vast or with so many
technical experts he declared, add
mg “And yet. we were not even
listed in a recent publication of
world social organizations
The most successful area in the
mission field tight now is Africa,
according to the orelate “Even in
cluding the 60,000,000 Moslems in
the north in the overall population
of 190.000 000. the Catholic popu

“And just think ot Africa s size.
It s 8.000 miles long and 3,600

A.F. Of L., Boy Scouts, Alerted
To Threats Of Obscene Books
WASHINGTON DC (NC)- A
countrywide alert to the threat
of obscene literature is now being
sounded through national and civ
ic organizations.
THE CATHOLIC TIMES, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13. 1953
Teachers have agreed to cooperate
the drive to weed out the poi
sonous publications.
In a letter to NCCM, George
Meany. A. of L. President, said
that “the reading material of
America s future citizens is and
should be a matter foi national
concern.”
The labor leader agreed with
Council’s position opposing govern
ment censorship of publications
and called for elimination of the
objectionable literature by the
publishers themselves
The National Congress of Par
ents and Teachers expressed “deep
interest” in the obscene books
problem and referred tin NC(
plan to its committees on legisla
tion and on comics, motion pic
tures, radio and television.
For the Boy Scouts of America,
Chief Scout Executive Arthur
A Schtick gave hearty approval to
NCCM’s alert plan:
“The future of our country is
dependent on our youth and their
training and for this reason 1 am
heartily in favor of your pro
posals .”
The Kiwmiiis International has
taken the anti pornography drive
under official consideration as
have the Congress of Industrial
Organizations and the Girl Scouts
of America.

NEW YORK (NC) The Rev.
Daniel A. Poling editor of the
inter denominational “Chris tian
Herald.” says “there never has
been in America and never should
be a wall between’ religion and
State.”
In an editorial in the Christian
Herald, Dr. Poling writes that “it
has remained for a Jew. Will Her
berg, to challenge Protestantism
to a positive instead of a negative
position in the whole matter of
religion (not sectarianism) in pub
lic education
“Christian Herald follows that
argument and agrees with it. Too
many of us have been panicked by
misstatements of the principle of
separation of Ch'irch and State.”

Communists Expel Fr. Sands,
China's Last Columban Priest
ST. COLUM BANS. Neb—(NC)—

received at Columban U. S. head

Father Sands is the last Colum

10 Loretto Sisters from Kentucky.
20 Missionary Sisters of St. Colum

the mission field in these areas.
Now. only a lew Chinese priests
arc functioning there, and these
are marked men and regarded by
the Reds as “traitors” to their
country.
Father Sands had been alone in
hiv parish since the end of 1948.
During that long period he saw a
priest only once, when a Chinese
priest happened to be passing
through. Isolated from the world,
in ill health, and subjected to long
and repeated interrogations he
nevertheless clung tn his post de
spite all the eft’ords of the Reds
to dislodge him.
Although threatened by the po
lice. his people were faithful in
attending Mass on Sundays. The

Can you give him a mite as a token of sympathy for the great Cardinal

The shrine Fatima Chapel that we are trying to build in Ethiopia will

like to give It to Our Lady in memory of a loved one? If you haven’t
that, any help will speed the completion of this wonderful work.

Because St. Thomas the Apostle was its first missionary and Is its pa

W’e must have missionary sisters, too. Sister Maire-lgnace is a novice
