For Blasphemous

LONDON The British Broad
casting Corporation, state radio
monopoly, has apologized to His
Eminence Cardinal Bernard Grif
fin and the Bishops of England
and Wales for its “grave error” in
televising on Easter Sunday a blas
phemous play about Christ and the
Virgin Mary.
But the corporation, a govern

decision to repeat the play on a
later mid-week evening, despite
protests, on the grounds that strict
adherence to the Christian line
would “set an undue limitation on
the range of our services.”

the practical value of existing mis

A statement to this effect has
been made here by the Sacred
Congregation of Rites, which issued
the decree simplifying the rules.
The statement declared:
“It must be noted that such a
reform will still require several
years. Consequently, not only pres
ent breviaries and missals will
keep their practical value, but also
those which eventually may have
to be printed in the meantime. As
prescribed in the decree, the latter
must conform in wery respect to
the present texts.”
A false prudence which manifests itself into a “mean
and selfish concern about one’s own comfort or pleasure or
temporal profit” was scored Sunday in a nation-wide radio
address by Msgr. Paul J. Glenn.

among modern dey mon.
We are prone to be prudent with
the prudence of the flesh, the Co

examples the parent who reasons
that It is unwise to send his chil

businessman who believes that the
manipulation of certain stocks to
the ruination of his fellowman is
perfectly justified because “busi
ness is business,” or the Catholic
who concludes that fasting and
abstinence are very inconvenient
and cut down on their efficiency.
“And how sadly often in our
day,” Msgr. Glenn continued, “do
we hear the whine of even young
people about ‘security.’ Caution,
foresight, shrewdness, reason, un
derstanding are debased to the
single service of material wealth.
