The Holy Father s Mission Aid
A man of some eighty years stopped in
the office last week. "Father, I don’t have
much but I just fell into some extra
money,” he said. "I was going to take a
trip. Then I thought it would be a much
better way if I gave it to the Holy Father for
his mission needs.” Was it a bonus, in
surance dividend or settlement? We
didn’t ask. But God bless him for such
loyal devotion to our wonderful Pope for
the daily flood of heartrending pleas for
mission emergencies. Often we have no
time to appeal.

told the seminarians that “com

Many British Reds Quit
Due To Hungarian Revolt
Communism emerged from the
shades in Britain 36 years ago to
set up a shop window political
party with local branches and lat
er its own newspaper, the Daily
Worker. It does not seek publici
ty. political success or even wide
membership, preferring to grasp
power by infiltrating into the
trade unions and other essential
groups and agitating behind an
army of fellow-travelers.
The party is reputed to have an
actual membership of around
30.000, out of all proportion to
the support it gets and the unrest
it causes. While boosting for all
is worth the sales of the Daily
Worker, it keeps actual party
membership selective and molcjs
those who join into a well-trained
nucleus of leaders.
Most sensational resignation
of all was that of Peter Fryer,
the Daily Worker's star report
er who had been sent specially
to Budapest to cover the rebel
lion. Mr. Fryer protested that
two of his stories were not used
and a third was severely cut.
In a published statement he de-
the diocesan elementary and high
schools held each spring.

Of Christ’s Birthday
The author of the following article is assistant editor

By Michael Derrick
LONDON (NC) In the front windows of many
homes in Britain this Christmas Eve a lighted candle will
be seen, put there to show the Infant Christ the way a
custom borrowed from other countries.
Promoters of this scheme
are a small group of anony
mous Catholic ex-servicemen
whose Christmas poster cam
paign, initiated in 1950, has
caught the popular imagina
tion. This year they mean to
make Christmas a festival of
light. Not only will candles
glow in the windows of private
houses, but, wherever it can
be arranged, the posters—pic
tures of the Nativity scene dis
played orv the public billboards
—will be floodlighted.
In six years the Christmas
poster campaign has become in
ternational. Individuals in other
countries ask for posters in
1955 the mayor of a town in the
U.S.S.R. sent a request for some
Although Catholic-inspired and
directed, the Christmas poster
campaign has been warmly sup
ported not only by the Catholic
Bishops but by the leaders of
other churches, too.
"If Is altogether splendid,"
wrote the Archbishop of Can
terbury, Primata of the church
of England, and he edded: "It
should play a really important
part in bringing the truth of
the Christiaq Gospel back into
the hearts and minds of the
The posters carry no indication
of the source of their distribution
—only a simple painting of Christ
in a manger, equally acceptable
to all Christians.
The promoters stress that this
is more than a publicity cam
paign nn behalf of the great
Christian festival. They ask every
Christian to say a prayer when
passing one of the posters.
"Talk about Christmas and
its meaning to as many people
as possible," they add. "Be as
well informed as possible your
self about the theology of the
Many Catholics, and doubtless
many other Christians, have been
brought back to the practice of
their religion as a direct result
of this campaign. One priest
wrote last January:
"Just before Christmas I was
coming down the convent drive
when at the gates I saw a man
at the Christmas
poster whitfh was displayed on
the wall next to the front en
trance. He was a complete
stranger, but quite spontaneously
he turned and said. ‘Isn’t Our
‘“Yes indeed,’ I agreed, and
asked, ‘Are you a Catholic?’
"'I used to ba, 25 years ago:
and now I've forgotten how to
go to confession.' Then he add
ed suddenly: 'Could you help
me?' 'Of course,' I replied.
"We walked to the nearby
church, and he made his confes
sion there and then. He had even
forgotten the Hail Mary, so we
said it together. And the next day
he received Our Lord again
Costs of the poster campaign
are met by the sale of stickers
showing the nativity scene. These
have already helped to spread the
Christmas message on nearly sev
en million letters and parcels.
But the costs are much lower
than might be thought. Not only
do many shops offer to display
the posters, but ail over Britain
