THE CATHOLIC TIMES Friday. Feb. J. 1954 Young Catholics Assail Trend To Materialism HILVERSUM Holland (NC) Higher wages and short er hours cannot alone solve present-day social problems. What is needed is a concept of “social justice'’ that aims at setting up an integrated society in which modern man can find food to still the spiritual hunger in his soul. This was one of the key thoughts brought forth at an international meeting of young Catholics, at Dra kenburgh near here.

Some of the views presented by various speakers at the meeting were: There is *n over-emphesis in Christian social thinking on the “economic man" and too much time is waated in analyzing the errors of the past rather than investigating the processes by which the future can be shaped. New social structures developed by mass society (i. e. political par ties based on class distinctions) have failed to halt the alienation of the individual from society. It is impossible to reverse the developments that have led to the present-day economic order. The mass type society is an inevitable part of modern economy. The social crisis of modern Eu rope reflects the permanent crisis of mankind which has its roots in original sin and in the struggle be tween God and Satan. Preserving and stimulating a healthy family life oilers the most promising prospect for relaxing pi esent tensions inherent in mass type society. The human relations factor must be considered to a far greater ex tent than heretofore in industrial enterprises, together with decisive efforts to give workers a share in the responsibility for, and the man agement of business enterprises. Christians hsvs the special re sponsibility of drawing upon their Faith and the strength of the Sacraments in taking the in itiative toward solving social problems. Their guiding princi ple should be the restoration of man to his dignity as a person and as a child of God. Among the American delegates were father Eugene J.

Father Junipero Serra was a great saint, who wished from child hood to serve God as a missionary. Conquering all opposition to his vocation, the little lame Franciscan also conquered the wilderness and thousands of souls in California with gentleness and patience. Here is history, adventure and political intrigue. After years of labor, the white mans greed brought war. but Father Serra, loved by the In dians, began again his labors. The language is directed at girls and boys in their early teens, but as did this reviewer, you may find the entire family reading the book. L.F. Spurs for Antonia, Katharine Wig more Eyre, Hale & Co. Spe cial edition. Cadmus Books, 1943. An intriguing novel (ages 10-14) with a Catholic background, “Spurs for Antonia’’ is the moving story of a child who finds herself trans planted from stuffy Boston sur roundings to a California ranch. Antonia had always lived with her reserved Aunt Alicia, but when her aunt dies she moves out west to live in unfamiliar surroundings with her father, who had. because of financial difficulties, sent her to Boston when she was a baby. Antonia faces many problems in her new life, particularly since she is com meed that her father wishes she were a hoy, and her tribula tions and triumphs, described in a mature, uncondescending style, will supply the junior miss with several hours of entertainment. Lack Of Religion In rhe Home Cited As Cause Of Delinquency gion in the home, some modern trends in education, and working motheis were listed this week as the thiee basic caus es of waywardness of today's Amer ican youth. Writing in the latest issue of Catholic Men. magazine of the Na tional Council of Catholic Men, Msgr. Joseph E. Schieder asserted: “A solution to the problem of juvenile delinquency will be had only when the mind* and heart* of our youth are turned to God, Who made them and they choo*e to live by the authority end teachings which are Hi*.” Monsignor Schieder. who is di rector of the Youth Department, National Catholic Welfare Confer ence, testified on the subject be fore the Senate Juvenile Delin quency Subcommittee. Speaking of lack of religion in the home, the Monsignor said: “If a child is reared in a home where God is a stranger, where attend ance at church or the synagogue is only something that he hears other young people talking about, ob viously then. God the Giver of laws is indeed Somebody foreign to him ... If God and His teach ing* are unknown to a teenager, what is there to prompt respect for parents?” The Monsignor also told the sub committee: “Slowly' but surely we are reaping our just deserts” from a form of education “which consid ers discipline as outmoded” He scored he theory that “a child in a classroom is not to be reprimand ed for fear that in later life he will be the victim of «ome infer iority complex.” “Cradled in this sort of educa tional atmosphere it is difficult for Only 10% Take Mau Mau Oath NAIROBI. Kenya (NC) Mis sionaries estimate that only’ 10 per cent of Catholic* among the Kikuyu tribe have freely taken the oath of the dreaded Mau Mau. This is an impressive fact in view of the torture and cruelty which have been the stock in-trade of the anti-Christian, anti Europ ean movement that has spread like a plagt’t throughout this British colony. Other Catholics who have been terrorized into taking the oath have not regarded it as binding, but continue to attend Mass and receive the Sacraments, Th* Mau Mau oath include* refuting assistant* to any Europ ean, and boycotting mission I schools. It insists on denuncia tion of th* Christian Faith. M.W. The Happy Hollister* and the In dian Treasure, by Jerry West Garden City Books. Garden City, New York, 1953. $95. As an example of the series, this Happy Hollisters book makes quite a good impression. The story is suitable for children, either boys or girls, of around nine or twelve It carries the Hollister family of five children, a dog, a cat and her five kittens, and the father and mother to New Mexico, where children learn Indian games, the thieves who had stolen goods they had come to buy, discover a clue to a buried and turquoise mine. Harmless, and lots of fun! M.W. me to conceive how a youth in his leisure time hours is going to curb his passions or thwart his inclina tions to be dishonest,” the youth leader said. On the subject of working moth ers, the Monsignor told the sub committee “it has been well said •No one can do two jobs and do them well’.” He said the most im portant job today is that of rais ing a family, but that in 1953 there were 5,300,000 working moth ers and 5 200.000 had children under 18. Monsignor Schieder said there are many mothers who are forced to work, but added there are others who allow their chil dren “to roam the streets at all hours of the night because mother is working on the swing shift.” The Monsignor also indicated before the Senators the indecent magazines and obscene movies of the day. He said that the “Police Gazette” shunned by a bygone so ciety as an indecent publication is “a nursery tale book” compared to some that teenagers read today.

SCATTERBRAIN Most of the trouble that comes as distractions in prayer is caused by failing to prepare yourself for prayer. One just can't get down on his knees and start out praying like a good fellow. Holy Scripture says something about tempting God by not preparing for prayer. First of all you ought to invoke the aid of the Holy Spirit. Then it would be a good idea if you en listed the help of your guardian angel and your patron saint. By that time you will be able to raise your mind and heart to God. and you ought to be on the way. It isn’t easy, but it is at least scientific and thoughtful.
