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.”

Im

quet for Joseph
Cardinal Minds
zenty and other
captives of com
munism.
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

Stations of the Cross, 418 visits

Franciscan rosaries, 3 Seraphic of
fice, 3 Memorares. 845, prayers

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

Joe Breig Says
Report on Your Gifts
My wife and I suddenly find our
selves engaged in a strange and
rather baffling new activity.
You will remember that I asked
readers to join

in preparing a
s
operated by th* University. Th* UHF station, which will be affiliated with
the NBC television network, will extend th* University's resources for education, information and
•ntortainment throughout northern Indiana and southern Michigan. At th* ground-breaking cere
monies were (loft to right) Vincent Fraatz, University engineer Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., execu

finite in value, infinitely pleasing
to God.
Two persons sent stipends to me
for Masses. 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.”

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

added:
"Anyone who maintains that
faith in God is simply an affair
of th* home or of the church,
and that it is not an affair of
our public lift or our public
school*—that's th* sort of fellow
I'm against."
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

deny God.”
“So I am opposed to the opera
tion of public schools on the ex
plicit or tacit assumption that
there is no God and that America
has no God.” Dr. Weigle said.
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." He said there now is

Another Protestant churchman
here for the convention issued a
strong statement on the question
of religion in the public schools. Dr.
Gerald A. Knoff, Methodist Minis
ter and secretary of the council’s di
vision of Christian education, said:
“When education deals with all of
life with the exception of relig
ion, it creates tbe impression, par
ticularly in the mind of a child, that
religion is about as important a*
stamp collecting or other hobbies.”
