PAGl 2 GKORGIA BULLETIN’ THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 14, 1963 WHICH BISHOPS’ SUPPORT Cardinal Talks ‘Liberal’ Views COLOGNE, Germany—{NC)—— It is not surprising that bishops, as Fathers of the ecumenical council, should support “pro gressive and hneral views," the dean of the German hier archy explained here. Joseph Cardinal Frings, Arc hbishop of Cologne, in a lenten pastoral to his archdiocese, pointed out that, while bishops are bound to obey the pope, as 4.80 PER ANNUM Paid Quarterly . con mean HIGHER RETIREMENT INCOME!

Therefore it is not surpris ing, he noted, that bishops who have been "incomparable in their obedience to Rome, should in this new situation, support progressive and liberal views.” Cardinal Frings, who is one of ten cardinals making up the council presidency, noted that the First Vatican Council’s do gma on the infallibility of the pope brought “some danger of centralistic development with in the Church" But His Holiness Pope John XXIII and all the faithful, he noted, are convinced that the strength of the Church rests upon two immovable pillars: the episcopate and the primacy of the pope. “All the bishops agree with the Holy Father," he said, “that old truths must be preached to an entirely changed world with new methods and in a new lan guage, and that it is impossible to ignore certain results of modern science.” Shamrock Knitting Mills ST, PIUS High School debate trophy winners.

The debating sector was the largest open invitational high school debate in the nation. The question for debate was “Resolved, that the U.S. should promote a common market for the Western Hemisphere." LUTHERAN LEADER Council Eased U.S. Tensions NEW YORK -NC- A Luther an Church leader said tensions between Catholics ami Protest ants in the United States have been lessened as a result of the Second Vatican Council. Addressing the 45th annual National Lutheran Council meeting here, the Rev. Dr. Paul C. Empie, council executive di rector, said that comments of Protestant observers and press representatives, “while guard ed, support the conclusion that the climate and direction which characterized these initial de liberations in Rome forecast the arrival of a new era in Christian relationships." DR. EMPIE said the increase in the "number and scope" of dialogues between Catholics and Protestants "over a variety of subjects and issues'* are con tinuing. He also noted an in crease in the number of in vitations received by Lutheran pastors to speak on Lutheran history, teaching and activit ies before local Catholic groups. “Since reciprocity usually follows in such matters," he declared, “this sort of two- way process of getting-to-know -you is certain to affect favor ably the climate of interchurch and community relationships.’* THE council shied away from taking a firm stand on Federal aid to non-public schools. It failed to approve a statement prepared over a two-year period by its social trends com mittee which advocated support of "limited and specific use" of tax funds for non-public col leges and universities, but which opposed the use of such funds for support of non-public elementary and secondary schools. Amplifying this stand, the statement said: "PUBLIC tax support for church schools, even in limit ed and specified ways, would create great advantage for some religious groups over others at the elementary and secondary school levels, but would not necessarily have the same effect at the level of college education." It also asserted that "the common good requires us to hold the line against the use of public tax funds in any manner that will serve to subsidize non-public schools and school systems." The council represents about two-thirds of American Luther*- anism, some 2,500,000 mem bers.

It took place over a DIFFERENT VIEWS ON UNITY KEEP CHRISTIANS APART, PROTESTANT LEADER SAYS PARIS -{NC) One thing keeping Protestants and Catho lics apart is a difference of opinion on what “Christian un ity” means, a leading Protest ant theologian said here. Prof. Oscar Ci'Umann of the Universities of Paris and Bas- Official My dear Catholic People: Last Sunday I wrote to you about our first Archdiocesan Cen sus. Today, in the midst of Catholic Press Month, I want to speak to you about the growing world of facts and ideas opened up by four doors - the Catholic newspaper, the Catholic magazine, the Catholic pamphlet, and the Catholic book. That these doors are marked Catholic - with a capital C - is known to us all. That they are also catholic - with a small c - that they have world wide concerns, a universal message, a truly total scope, is not as well known. Our own new Archdiocesan weekly newspaper, The Georgia Bulletin, is a case in point. It is speaking to Catholics, but also to our whole public community. It treats of Catholic subjects- doctrine, moral problems, the liturgy, Catholic organizations, but it touches frequently on the society in which we live. A Spanish bishop, Dr. Pedro Cantero, put it this way: “a paper that does not take its news from passing events, and gives no answer to the questions of the hour, is a paper doomed to dis appear”. The Georgia Bulletin dedicated to truth wherever it is found, is not doomed to disappear. With your Interest and your subscriptions, it is destined to grow and flourish. There are many excellent Catholic magazines today. In fact, it seems that as our secular magazines get bigger and bigger with full pages of advertising, many of our Catholic magazines get better and better, with more good writing and good ideas. Fine pamphlets are on sale in most of our parish churches. Good books are available in parish and public libraries,parish book stores, and the Notre Dame Book Shop in Atlanta. If there is one characteristic that should identify today’s Catholic, it is to be alert and alive to the history that the Church is making. It is our hope that every Catholic family in the Archdiocese reads The Georgia Bulletin, and subscribes to it too. When you receive your notice of a subscription, think of it as an invitation to a weekly tour of the whole Catholic world, with stopover privileges in Georgia. There is a question of duty and responsibility here, of course. But it is also a question of opportunity. As Pope Saint Pius X, our patron, said: "To be a Catholic, to call oneself a Catholic, to belong to Catholic organizations, and at the same time to be indifferent to the Catholic press, is clearly an absurdity”. Here is your opportunity - your children’s opportunity - to support the Catholic press, by your interest, your reading, and your subscriptions. With every good wish, Sincerely yours in Christ, Paul J. Halllnan Archbishop of Atlanta el, Switzerland, who attended the ecumenical council's first session as a guest of the Secre tariat for Promoting Christian Unity, expressed this view dur ing a conference at the Sorbonne on “the hopes and experiences of a Protestant observer bet ween the two sessions of the council." AMONG those attending were Pastor Marc Boegner, longtime president of the Protestant Fed eration of France; and Bishop Cassien, rector of the St. Ser gius Orthodox theological insti tute here, who also attended the council’s first session as a guest of the Unity Secretariat. Prof. Cullmann said that, for Catholics, Christian unity is possible only under the Pope. For Protestants, he said, the unity of the World Council of Churches is enough. Another block to unity, he FROM ENGLAND noted, is a difference of opin ion on interpretation of the Bible. Catholics give a dog matic value to the Church’s interpretation of Scripture, while Protestants have accepted interpretations which at times conflict with one another. AFTER praising His Holiness Pope John XXIII and Augustin Cardinal Bea, S. J., president of the Secretariat for Promot ing Christian Unity, Prof. Cull mann answered charges that the presence <rf Protestant observ ers at the council was dangerous for Protestantism. "Let us all remain true to our Faith,” he said “but let us cooperate with one another. The council created the climate nec essary for that. If each church fulfils its own task and renews itself in the Holy Spirit, the beg inning of unity will come some day.” Priest-Author Set For Local Lectures Emory University and Geor gia Tech will be the scene of lectures to be presented by the Rev.

NAJIONALMERIT Marist Seniors In Scholarship Finals Last week the National Merit Scholarship Corporation an nounced the finalists in its scho larship program. Among the eleven thousand seniors se lected throughout the United States are two Marist seniors: Timothy Armstrong of St. Tho mas More Parish and Donald Schliessmann of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. To achieve finalist honors, the two Cadets earned high scores on the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Tests taken in March, 1962. As a re sult of additional high scoring success on the December Col lege Entrance Examinations, both boys were promoted to the finalist category.
