the Foreign Minister stated. “Un
der communist domination, Chris

severely persecuted and the great

“One of th* principal com
munist aims is the destruction
of the Christian faith. In signifi
cant contrast, South Korea dur
ing the course of the war has ex
perienced a vitalising and wide
spread campaign of evangelism.
“So long as the communists re
main in north Korea, one of the
sharp and increasing differences
between the two areas will be the
intensified Christianizing of the
south and the deadening materiali
zation of the north. This is one
effect of the disastrous Panmun-
jom truce of which Christians all
around the world should be pain
fully aware. We plead for their
help in our endeavors to restore to
our brethren in the north an op
portunity for a restoration of their
spiritual life.**

2000 Have Followed
In Steps Of Newman,
Convert Specialist Says
(NC-W.C. News Senice)
NEW YORK An estimated 2.000 ministers of the Angli
can Church have come into the Catholic Faith since the con
version of England s John Henn’ Cardinal Newman, it has
been stated by Monsignor Thomas J. McMahon, spiritual di
rector of the St. Paul Guild, an organization dedicated to con
vert work which has headquarters here.
The Monsignor said it is impossible to number exacth the
converts and the ministers of other
Protestant religions who have em ,weH what u today vi.
bra^d/.a\h?J'CHm,.S,n‘?,,l2 ,daVS Ul of Catholic population*
throughout th* world."
The Monsignor expressed his
of the Colonies. He added, how
ever, it is known that 12 convert
ministers “haxe adorned the Cath
olic Hierarchy” and that many oth
ers have become priests.
Since the close of the 19th cen
tury. Monsignor McMahon said, the
Catholic Church has been the sub
ject of attack by those who claim
it has lost through leakage more
than it has gained by conversions.
“Tha record remains/' the
Monsignor continued, “that from
the few hundred of the Colonial
days, we have grown into a giant
Church of many millions Not all
this, by any means, has been
brought about through the accre
tions of births into Catholic fam
ilies or by the great waves of im
migration. This great work has
been effected by the preaching
of the Gospel, in work, more
than in word, to our non-Cetholie
fellow citizenry, as they have
come in tho many hundreds of
thousands, ever the yeers, to
views in a pamphlet titled “To
days Cyrenians” published here
by St. Paul Guild, an organization
of clergy and laity all over the na
tion founded in 1901 for the prin
cipal purpose of lending material,
temporary help to convert minis
ters.
Economic Prob I am
According to Monsignor McMa
hon. lhe principal problem for the
Protestant minister considering
conversion is economic,
“For. the Cross which they clutch
is the terribly hard wood of ostra
cism on the part of friends and
parishioners of yesteryear, of di
rect economic necessity imposed
on them by their voluntary renun
ciation of a life of comparative se
curity, of never ceasing humilia
tions throughout the rest of their
mortal lives.” Monsignor McMahon
stated. “All this would be their lot.
even though peace of soul and
God s choicest graces were to be
their priceless possessions for
ever”
Th* Monsignor recalled that
"in 1846, Father Doyl*, a priest
of th* Diocese of Southwark in
England" mad* an eloquent plea
for assistance by th* Church to
convert ministers, pointing out
also that besides ostracism by
former friends and parishioners,
many had tha obligation of car
ing for large families.
The pamphlet explained that the
St. Paul Guild functions under the
I honorarx piesidency ot His Emi
nence Francis Cardinal Spellman.
Archbishop of New \oik. In
early years, the Guild was known
as the National Catholic Converts'
League and adopted lhe present
name in 1924. Besides its aid io
convert ministers the Guild pub
lishes a quarterly magazine. The
Epistle, and conducts a program of
Catholic adult education at Guild
House here
Monsignor McMahon, who also
is president of the Pontifical Mis
sion for Palestine and national sec
retary of the Catholic Near East
Welfare Association, stated
“We cannot boast of a true apos
tolate to the other sheep, if we do
not care for their former shep
herds.” He urged greater partici
pation “in this apostolate for the
blood brothers of Simon of Cy
rene.”

At 1955 Rites
RIO DF. JANEIRO. Brazil—(NC)
—The 36th International Eu
chanstie Congress which is to be
held here from July 17 to 24. 1955.

the demonstration of devotion to
the Holy Eucharist.
He said th* majority of pil

pected f*om the United States,
from the countries of Europe,
and from Africa.
Principal ceremonies of the Con

“Brazil, which net er in the
course of its history has deviated
from the mam roads of its Chris
tian vocation, looks forward w’ilh
joy. Cardinal Camara said, “to the
splendid opportunity propitiated by
the Holy Father to bring together
Catholics from all over the world
as a brotherly and generous least
of Faith. Hope and Chanty.”
