On Religion’s Status
In South America
RIO DE JANEIRO. Brazil—Conflicting opinions have
been expressed by Latin American Catholic leaders con
cerning the assertion by an American priest that the
Church is on the decline in Latin America.
Th* assertion i* mad* in an
article, "How Catholic i* Latin
America?" by Maryknoll Father
Albert J. Nevin* in th* current
issue of Sign magazine, pub
lished in Union City, N. J., by
the Pattionisf Father*.
According to father Nevins, the
hurch is at best, just holding
on in Isatin America.
“Eacts do not warrant calling
Latin America a Catholic contin
ent." he writes. “By tradition it
is Catholic, but in actual prac
tice the lAtin American people
as a whole live in neglect of their
Faith. The great body of peo
ple of Isatin America live out
-ide the Church, separated from
its sacraments, ignorant of its
doctrines, and unaware of the so
cial teachings that could lift
them from their wretched pov

of Rio de Janeiro replied in an
interview published in Tribuna
dr, Imprensa that the increasing
evidence of Church expansion in
Brazil is an effective refutation
of Father Nevins’ statements.
He noted that 80 naw dio
ceses have been created in Bra
zil in recent yeers, that the
number of Brazilian bishop*
has been tripled, that the num
ber of priests has been nearly
doubled, and that within the
past 50 years the number of
seminarians has increased
about 300 per cent.
“So intense has been the ef
fort of the Brazilian clergy,” the
Bishop added, “that it succeeded
in rousing the enthusiasm of the
laity to perform many apostolic
works in their different spheres
But Father Alvaro Negromonte,
a catechetical leader in Brazil,
agrees with the Maryknoll priest.
He explained that the present
decline of the Church is the ef
fect of gradual abandonment of
religious instruction of a proper
kind. He describes the piety of
the majority of Isatin Americans
as “more religious sentiment
without doctrinal foundation.’
Father Negromonte said:
“The only effective means
preserve Catholicism is to
crease religious instruction
the parishes and schools accord
ing to the conclusive instructions
of the Catholic Church. Without
this, Isatin America. Brazil in
cluded. will within two more gen
erations no longer be a Catholic

leader. Hildebrandt lxal con
ceded that there is a Jack of re
ligious practice and too much
sentimental piety in Brazil, but
disagreed with Father Newns’
conclusion that this is evidence
of a serious decline of the Church
in Latin America.
