Priest Challenges Widely
Accepted Political Axioms
INDIANAPOLIS (NO A priest challenged three
commonly accepted political axioms in a speech here.
Speaking at a Serra Club luncheon. Msgr. Victor L.
Goossens, Indianapolis archdiocesan director of the Society
for the Propagation of the Faith and pastor of St. Mary’s
church, said:
—Government* de net de
rive their power from the con
sent of the govern*©. Th* pow
er come* directly from God.
—Mon are not created equal.
They are created with equal
—Democracy is not neces
sarily th* best form of govern
ment. Under certain conditions
a monarchical regime might bo
mor* advantageous for th* citi
Msgr. Goossens supported his
statements by citing the political
writings of Pope I-eo XIII. The
priest said that while Pope Leo’s
“Rerum Novarum’’ is best known,
he wrote nine encyclicals on so
cial problem* during his long
“Rulers receive their office
from the electorate but their
power comes from God,” the
priest stated. He cited as support
the following quotation from
Pope. Leo XIII’s encyclical on civ
il government, “Diuturnum”:
"Tho«* who ar* placed ©ver
th* Stat* may in certain case*
ba chosen by th* will and de
cision of the multitude but
the rights of ruling ar* not
thereby conferred. As regards
political power, the Church
rightly teaches that it comes
from God.”
Since those in political office
derive their power to govern
from Almighty God, Msgr. Goos
sens said, it follows that they
have a grave moral responsibility
to rule in a manner that is in
complete conformity with the law
of God—a responsibility that is
often overlooked today.
“Just because they are elect
ed by the people, some office
holders have the mistaken no
tion that their only moral obli
gation is to their constituents,"
he said. “Nothing, of course,
could be farther from the
The commonly accepted axiom
that “all men are created equal”
should be amended to read “all
men are created with equal
rights.” Msgr. Goossens suggest
ed. “The inequities in nature it
self negate the notion of absolute
human equality,” he asserted.
The Monsignor pointed out that

endowments, health, social strata,

and the like make it obvious that
all men are not created equal.
The third point in modern po
litical philosophy which is refut
ed by Pope I^o XIII, Msgr. Goos
sens said, is the theory that de
mocracy is the only acceptable
form of government.
“.Just because we in America
have thrived on one form of gov

Former Utah Mayor
Ordained to Diaconate
DENVER—(NC) The Rev.
Harry DeJonghe, former mayor
of Park City, Utah, has been or
dained to the diaconate al St.
Thomas’ Seminary here.
The odds were against him
when he was elected mayor of
Park City in 1948, but he won by
a 3-1 margin. There were only
200 Catholics in the mining city’s
population of 3.000. He overcame
Mormon opponents and became a
Democratic mayor in a predom
inantly Republican county.

In the winter they live in a
small “pueblo” called Paras, near
Monterrey, Mexico, where there
is not always a priest or padre
available for Confession, First
Communion or even Maas, for
there is a great shortage of priests
in Mexico.
They were quite apologetic
about not having made lheir First
Communion before. They move

throughout the United States
from April tn October so there
is little opportunity for formal
catechism instruction.
Like the Trevinn camp many
other children of all ages attend

in the discussions at one time or
another. They are also very hard
workers and sometimes it would
be very late when they returned
to the camp from the “labores” or
