two priests he interviewed person
ally. They were among some 45
Catholic priests and members of
religious Orders released with a
large group of so-called “political
prisoners” during late November
and early December, according to
reports received here.
Their Bishops were shocked by
the condition of the released
priests. Some looked like skeletons,
and nearly all gave the impression
of having suffered terribly.
The majority of the freed priests
presumably will be unfit to exer
cise their former ecclesiastical du
ties for some time to come.
Railway tickets were supplied by
the Communist captors to return
the priests to their former places
of residence, and they were given

Priests Released From Slav
Prisons Like ’Living Corpses’
Report 45 Freed After Long
i ears In Communist Prisons
GRAZ, Austria —(NC)— Priests recently released after
long years in Yugoslav prisons are “like living corpses
human automatons who must be trained and taught like child
ren in order to resume normal life.-’
These words were used byja Yugoslav Bishop to describe
also a small amount of money.
Some had spent five or more
yeers in concentretion camps
without ever having been
brought before a court. Others
were sentenced in 1945, 1946
and 1947 by Communist "Peo
ple's Courts."
Ixmg years of suffering left
marks upon their minds and per
sonalities. Communist warders, at
the behest of the O.Z.N.A. (secret
police) had deliberately used
methods designed to destroy the
personality and all feeling of hu
man dignity.
On their return the priests were
afraid to speak in a normal fash
ion u ith their Bishops, asking over
and over whether somebody was
behind the door listening to the
conversation.
Their captivity had been shared
with common criminals. For years
the priests were refused any kind
of spiritual literature. Many of
them, so as not to forget their Lat
in, wrote down prayers on scraps
of paper.
At the beginning of their im
prisonment—in 1945 and 1946—
many were physically beaten and
assaulted by the warders. Later on
the physical punishment was grad
ually reduced, but every day they
were humiliated afresh for being
priests.
The worst prison appears to

where during the winters of 1945
•nd 1946, in order to make room
for new prisoners, hundreds
wore driven naked from their
bods into the prisop yartl in
freezing weather. Many froze to
death or soon diod from pneu
monia some begged guards to

At least eight Franciscans died
from pneumonia in the camp at
Stolac, and six priests died from
exhaustion and cold.
It is estimated that there are
still about 100 Catholic priests in
Yugoslav jails and concentration
camps.
Fourteen of the released priests
were from the provinces of Bosnia
and Herzegovina six from Dal
matia eight from Slovenia 11
from Croatia, and four from the
province of Vojvodina (known as
Banat and Bacska during the Habs
burg Monarchy).
They were imprisoned in Lepo

Excavations Throw New
Light On Ancient Hippo
BONE, Algeria, North Africa —(NC)— This seaport, the
Hippo of ancient times and the See of St. Augustine, came
into its own during the African campaign of World War II
when it served as an important debarkation point. Today,
for Catholics because excava-
it takes on added significiance
lions now in progress shed new
light on the fifth-century Bishop,
who has been called one of Catn
olicism's greatest minds.
Recent excavations uncovered a
chapel in the form of a seven
leaf clover which St. Augustine
used and a monastery over which
he presided.
Five years ago, St. Augustine's
cathedral itself was found in the
midst of ruins which yielded evi
dence of five civilizations—Punic,
Byzantine, Roman, Christian and
Vandal.
Archeologists have determined
and clearly marked the church's
dimensions, 162 feet long and 65
feet wide. Rich mosaics cover the
floor area and stout marble pil
lars rise from the nave. Unearth
ed within the church's precincts
were a baptismal font, a presbv
tery with episcopal throne, and
tombs of bishops.
Excavators currently are dig
ging about the ruins of another
cathedral, supposedly that of a
rival Donatist bishop. In his
writings, St. Augustine speaks of
the “noise" of the Donetists—
an heretical sect of the day—
from the neighboring cathedral,
which he said could be too well
heard in his own church.
Today, overlooking Bone and the
Mediterranean is a twin-towered
cathedral presided over by the
First Catholic
College Built
In Indian State
VIJAYAWADA, Andhra, India—
(NC)—Hindu Governor C. M. Tri
vedi laid the cornerstone here on
what will be the first Catholic col
lege in the new’ Indian state of
Andhra. It will be named after St.
Ignatius Loyola and will be con
ducted by priests of the Society
of Jesus.
Among those who attended the
ceremony were Archbishop Thom
as Pothacamury of Bangalore,
Archbishop Mark Gopu of Hydera
bad, Bishop Ambrose De Battista
of Vijayawada, and Bishop Igna
tius Mummadi of Gundtur.
The college will stand on a 95
acre site, more than half of which
was donated by a college commit
tee headed by a local Hindu lead
er. Another local Hindu philan
thropist donated a hostel which
was blessed by Archbishop Potha
camury.
Mr. Trivedi paid a tribute to
the contribution Catholic mis
sionaries have made to the ad
vancement of education in In
dia. He pointed out that 1,000,
000 students are at present re
ceiving instruction in Catholic
institutions throughout the coun
try.
These students are being cared
for in 52 colleges, 820 high, mid
dle and industrial schools, and
more than 4.000 elementary
schools, Mr. Trivedi said, adding
that a good portion of the insti
tutions are in the hands of the So
ciety of Jesus, which first began
education in India in 1543.
Bishop of Constantine, Algeria
Connected to it is a large mon
astery of the Augustinian Fathers.
Directly in front of the cathedral
is the site of the ancient ruins.
A retired French admiral and
noted scholar, E. Marec, is the
man most responsible for the im
portant findings. His initial in
terest in Bone dates from World
War I, when he sened with French
naval forces there. Twenty yeais
later he began excavation work
under the auspices of the French
government in Algeria and with
support from the Ecole des Beaux
Arts of Algiers.
M. Marec said the sea came to
the very edge of St. Augustine/
cathedral in Roman times. Today
new’ Hippo or Bone stretches from
the location of the old Cathedral
to a new' shore more than a half
mile beyond.
M. Marec is readying a volume
on his findings for publication
next year, the 16th centenary of the
birth of St. Augustine.

God Seeks To Possess, Guide
Us As Our Ego Does Now
by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
The word “Incarnation,” is taken
from two Isatin words: “in” and
“carne” (in the flesh). The Eter

took on our
human nature
and became the
Son of Man.

He took from

and our
selfishness do now.

When we are made Christians
we are “stamped” in Baptism
with a resemblance to the Divine
Nature. It is the Will of Our
lxrd to have as many made
“Christoform”, i.e., conformable
to Christ's Likeness as possible.
That is W’hy we have Missions so
that Indians, Africans, Japanese
and Chinese may be “other
Christs.” They cannot do this un
less we help them that is
where your sacrifices to The So
ciety for the Propagation of the
Faith come in.
“Decarnation” is the opposite
of Incarnation. As the Incarna
tion means bringing God into the
flesh. “Decarnation” means mak
ing the flesh Godless. Incarna
tion is Christian. “Decarnation”
is Communism. The Incarnation
makes us children of God “De
carnation” makes us children of
Satan.
By the mere fact that we do
nothing to apply the Incarnation,
“Decarnation” increases and mul
tiplies. By just setting aside this
column without making a sacri
fice for the Holy Father’s Mis
sions, we leave a person or an

to F.J.M. “Enclosed is $5 which
