11—THE CATHOLIC TIMES
Friday, Mar. 4,1955 Educator Urges Schools To Foster Catholic Reading MILWAUKEE—CNO A pro gram of directed reading in par ochial schools to condition boys and girls for reading of the Cath olic Press as adults has been ad vocated by a Fordham University professor in a Catholic Press Month article in The Catholic Jour nal. The article, “Educating Children to Read Catholic Periodicals,” was written by Dr. James A. Fitzgerald, head of the Fordham University elementary education division. He Wrote: “If adults generally are to read effectively in life outside the school, they must be taught syste matically to read in school. If adults are to read high quality materials, they must be taught as children to •earch out, to locate, and to read materials of worth. "If Catholic people are to read Catholic magazines and other magazines of high value, they will do so more universally and mor# effectively if they are in troduced to Catholic periodicals —newspapers and magazine*— while in school. "Such a habit practiced in school will carry over to adult reading end will make life more worth liv ing. Directed reading of weekly publications supplemented with the less frequently published periodicals for children achieves these purposes.” “It can be safely said.” he em phasized, "that the reading needs of the 30-million Catholics of this country are not being satisfied.” CA. 4*1285 HARRIS & DE CESSNA Incorporated Contract Bond* General Insurance 20 S. 3RD ST., COLUMBUS, O.

Each evening since. Mary and I have been opening letters and tabulating results. We find the task odd. It seems to us that we are trying to ex press, in .statistics, something in expressible. How can figures on a piece of pa per give any real idea of the love of God and love of fellowmen that move readers to send in their spir itual gifts? What numeral, for instance, can represent the contribution of one wife and husband the latter a sufferer from multiple sclerosis? The wife writes that they are offering for Cardinal Mindszenty, each day, the hour between 3 and 4 o’clock in the morning. Whatever that hour brings, whether joy or sorrow, they will unite themselves, through the Im maculate Heart of Mary, with “all the prayers of all the peoples of the whole world at that time.” Another woman writes that she will offer daily Mass and Commun ion for Cardinal Mindszenty “as long as I live.” How can you classify such mu nificent gifts? You cannot. Nevertheless, we must make some attempt to report, in human terminology, what is ul timately measurable only by God. At the time I write this, Mary and I have tabulated the following gifts for the great Hungarian cardi nal who was sentenced to life im prisonment by the Communists: Masses, 1,786 Rosaries, 2,450 Communions, 2,173 devotions, 10 Little Office. 10 litapies (of vari ous kinds), 35 fasting days, 10 no venas, 52 Stations of the Cross, 418 visits to the Blessed Sacrament, 388, Franciscan rosaries, 3 Seraphic of fice, 3 Memorares. 845, prayers (miscellaneous), 1,451 Sacrifices, 1,554 alms, 2 aspira tions, 8,813, Our Fathers, 1.045 Hail Marys, 5,095, Glorias, 1,035 spiritual Communions, 325 holy hours. 25 remembrances by priests saying Mass, 40. In addition, 18 Masses are being offered specifically for Cardinal Mindszenty and the other captives. This is especially heartening. We all know that the Mass is the great est of prayers it is the prayer in- Comptometer Students Wanted to take short, inex pensive Comptometer course classes day er eve ning*.

I am deeply grateful. The Society for the Propagation of the Faith will see that the Masses are said. Where possible, however, it will be better if readers make their own arrangements, and sim ply tell me how many Masses are being offered. I hope there will be hundreds of Masses before our spiritual bou quet is complete. I hope, too, that all of us, as we go along, will be inspired to do even more than we have promised, and will pray that others may be given grace to join our movement. I would like to make a special ap peal to readers who are not very pious, and above all to those who are wrestling with indolence, spir itual coldness and sin. There is more joy in Heaven, you know, over one sinner repenting, than over 99 just. It would be a noble .gift to Cardinal Mindszenty and the otheh Christian heroes if some one who has been living a self-indulgent life would make a good confession and perhaps offer a novena of Masses and Commun ions in their name. These modern martyrs would ap preciate something like that more than anything else. I should think. After all, they are suffering not only for their faith in God, but also for human freedom -especial ly for our liberty to practice the Faith we sometimes neglect. Finally, let us pray not only for the persecuted, but for the perse cutors. Let us bless those who re vile us let us overcome evil with good. St. Aujnistine’s Great Influence Noted by Slieed To be “nailed to another man’s mind” is, to say the least, an unusual experience. Frank Sheed, the translator of “Confessions of St. Augus tine,” last week gave his Crit ics Forum audience a glimpse of the impressions he gained while studying the noted Saints writings. According to Mr. Sheed, there are three qualities about Augustine that make his work timely through all ages: his vast powerful mind, his use of language (“You must study Isatin to read ‘Confessions’— He can’t be translated”) and his ability to translate experiences. The conflict of two great pas sions, corporal and intellectual, made “Confessions”, Mr. Sheed pointed out. Augustine knew sin and knew how to bring out the horror of sin without sordid de tails “Every sinner recognizes in St. Augustine, a brother,’’ Mr Sheed observed "Confessions” tells the story of Augustine’s struggle uith his tre mendous passions and reveals the work of God in the Saint’s soul. The work points up the great les son that Augustine gave the dark ages—a lesson that led to the re birth of civilization. Mr Sheed summarizes the les son as “a double truth about man the spirit is primary but the body is sacred, too.” Mr. Sheed pointed out that the great champions of Christianity such as Emperor Charlemagne and Pope Gregory the Great studied the writings of Augustine. He re marked, “Anyone doing anything went to Augustine. He influenced the world's great minds for a thou sand years and will continue to do so.” I ... o.........- Boys’ Town Mayor Chosen BOYS TV)WN, Nebr.—(NC)—Jer i ry Newberger, 18, of Sioux Falls, S.

Church St. Protestant Churchman Says Trench Toward Godless Public Schools Curbed CINCINNATI—(NC)—Dr. Luther A. Weigle, dean emeri tus of Yale University’s Divinity School, said he believes that the drive of those who would secularize completely the public schools has been ‘‘considerably blunted, if not stopped.” The Protestant churchman and scholar in an interview with an N.C.W.C. News Service reporter here declared himself thoroughly opposed to ‘educational theorists —John Dewey was the outstanding one—who would try to force any reference to our basic theistic faith out of the public schools.” Dr. Weigle came here to attend the annual meeting of the division of Christian education of the Na tional Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. Since 1929, he has been chairman of the commit teg which prepared the Revised Standard Version of the Bible (Protestant). Dr. Weigle said he wanted to make it clear that he did not ac cute the public school* of being Godless. “They are not,” he said. “I would say the great majority of them do in various ways reflect our faith in God.” But, he said there are “theor ists” who overemphasize the sep aration of church and state until they advocate what amounts to “a AVAVAWAWAVAVAV. •The Sseee Thai I* Diffaraat" FURNITURE I ACCESSORIES ST-69 W.

Dr. Weigle said failure in teach ing history, culture or ethics prop erly would result from a “policy of silence” about the theistic faith which is such “a vital part of our American national life and Amer ican culture.” He said a “policy of silence is bound to pvt the public WHERE THOUSANDS SAVE MILLIONS fyi Current Return y 1 7O Account* An Insured To $10,000 CENTRAL OHIO FEDERAL SAVINGS 78 South Third Street BUYERS' NEWARK GUIDE CLASSIFIED SECTION 2*c per line p. o Boa Cohrmbw* 1*.

A member of th* Cengroga tionalist Church, Dr. Weigle said he is pleased to observe a trend away "from the sort of extreme secularism which men like Dewey advocated."
