Speaking at Gabrial House. Grail Center Prof Kohya Tagita. a member of the
the first Spanish and Portuguese
missioners came to Japan in the
16th century, about one million
Japanese were baptized, he said
Then the Tokugawa Shogunate

more than 200 years. Christians

echoes of the L.tm forms often
are clearly heard, he continued
About 20.000 of the “secret
Christians” have been converted
to the Chui ch in the past century
since Admiral Perry reopened
Japan to western commerce, the
professor said. Their number has
grown today to approximately
100.000. most of them in the Nag
asaki Diocese, which includes
manv remote islands southwest
nf the Japanese mainland.
But even those who are con
verts maintain a catacomb com

Their faith is extremely
strong," he said, "and they
are not at all apostolic."
The tattered remnant of the
faith preserved by the “secret

Morality Seen Violated
By Racial Segregation
NEW ORLEANS (NC) Racial segregation is a
violation of moral principles.” Archbishop Joseph Rum
mel of New Orleans, declared in an address here at the
New Orleans archdiocese teachers' institute.
“Children should know." the Archbishop declared, “that
regardless of color, al. are chil
dren of God That. I think, should
be communicated to children by
those in direct charge of them.
Social justice should be an inte
gral part of the school program
so that, children will be prepar
ed with the principles of justice
and charity.
Tn the situation here, the pre
late said there “is a great deal of
turmoil, a great deal of misrepre
sentation and not much evidence
of Christian principles.” He said
that he had been asked “What is
the moral responsibility of inte
gration’’ And is segregation a
moral issue of interpretation of
a so-called way nf life’”
The Archbishop said: "Christ
told St. Peter, 'Teach all na
tions ... I am with you all days
even to the consummation of
the world.' If *hose words
mean anything, they apply not
only to Peter but to his succes
sors, the Bishops, and all
groups associated with the
Church. Questioning and chal
lenging the authority of the
Church is not a conviction but
an alibi of certain prejudices.
“In Genesis we read that God
made one man and one woman
The Old Testament and the New
Testament are without discrimi
nation In the second place. Christ
did not die for one race, one
group He died for all men The
kingdom of Heaven is available
to all.”
“If we go back to the Gospels
we learn that our Lord Jesus
Christ said. Thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself. Practical ap
plication may not always be easy,
but you can make children kind
and loving willing to do for oth
ers as they would wish others to
do unto them the Archbishop
said.
