“The Holy Father has demon
strated his deep interest in the
Holy I^and, not only by his words,
but also by his works. In setting
up, six years ago, the Pontifical
Mission for Palestine, he assured
its 800,000 homeless that the Vicar
of Christ would be present among
them by an enduring mission of
mercy, which has lasted to this
moment and will continue as long
as the sad conditions exist in the
Middle East.”
Monsignor McMahon said that,
since 1948, the Pontifical Mission
for Palestine has given assistance
to Palestine refugees in the total
value of $20,000,000. It has dis

tons of clothing, and 30 tons of
medical supplies. It conducts 250
centers for the distribution of
clothing and food. It also has 31,

Priest Urges
Youth To Fight
“The only way to combat dis
crimination and segregation is
to recognize it as a sin, and
fight it accordingly.”
This observation was made
here by Father Donald Jette,
S.S.S., Church history profes
sor at St. Joseph’s Seminary of
the Blessed Sacrament in near
by Euclid. He was guest speak
er at the Communion-breakfast
of the Catholic Young Men and
Women’s Club.
Pointing out that Catholic youth
can do much to eliminate discrimi
nation and segregation, he stated
that “we are strictly bound by the
law of God to assist the needy, and
avoid obvioas acts of hatred.”
"We can't call ourselves fol
lowers of Christ, if we discrimi
nate against any human being be
cause of color, race or national
ity," he said. "It is a sin, and in
some instances a mortal sin, if
the motive for discrimination or
enforced segregation is based on
Father Jette said that most acts
against the Negro were caused by
ignorance, although some times
they “indicate an apparent hatred.”
He called on the youth to dispel
the ignorance among their associ-
ates. He said:
“The conversion of 13,000,000
Negroes in the United States to
Catholicism could come about, if
Catholic leaders exerted every ef
fort to wipe out discrimination
and segregation.”

Urged To True
dio, NC) A true spirit of
Christian hospitality is much
better than merely efficient
service, His Holiness Pope
Pius XII told a group of hotel
keepers at an audience in his
summer palace here.
He spoke to 1,500 delegates who
had come to Rome for a General
Congress of the International Ho
tel Association.
The delegates, who came in full
strength for the papal audience
were counseled by the Holy Father
that their part in better relations
and understanding between peo
ples is much greater than might
The Pope said that “the noblest
part of your profession” is hos
pitality, and the fact that hotel
keeping had now become an indus
try should not make them forget
the dignity of its origins.
His own interests naturally will
suggest that the hotelkeeper treat
his guests with every possible at
tention. the Pontiff said, adding
however, that “whoever has a suf
ficiently elevated idea of the hu
man person will unite to manifesta
tions of deference the delicate
touch of sincere respect, which
gives to the task of hospitality its
true nobility.”
