Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - April 25, 1947, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia . Sou purpose to make popu More Christ Uke tar mews miss at Emu comm the annual state convention of the National Catholic Rural move ment which was held at Jamestown on tuesday and wednesday april 15 and 16, attracted delegates from All parts of the state. Places As far apart As Wanbi and Cummins sen Good representations and Well Over 100 men and women took part in deliberations of the convention. His lordship the most Rev. F. A. Henschke d.d., Bishop of Ragga Ragga and episcopal president of the movement in Australia returned Bishop Mccabe x to his former Parish to assist in the work. His Grace the archbishop of Adelaide the most Rev. Matthew Beovich and his lordship the Bishop of port Augusta the most Rev. Thomas Mcgabe d.d., also graced the occasion with their pre sence. A Large number of priests from the diocese of port Augusta and the archdiocese were also in attendance during the convention and took part in the deliberations during the various sessions. The sessions began each Day by the offering of the holy sacrifice of the mass by the it. Rev. Mon Signor m. B. Clune vicar general of the diocese of port Augusta who was also the celebrant at the Bene diction of the most blessed Sacra ment that brought the convention to a close on wednesday afternoon. Day of recollection in preparation for the convention a Day of recollection was made by about 60 delegates from All parts of the state and in spite of the Many difficulties the Retreat ants managed to observe the silence to a remarkable degree. The conductor was the Rev. Rather Walsh d.d., of Peterborough. The convention opened on tues Day morning with holy mass celebrated by the it. Rev. Monsignor m. B. Clune v.g., and attended by All the delegates and by a goodly number of local people. The first session of the convention was devoted to the opening address delivered by his lordship the Bishop of port Augusta the most Rev. T. Mccabe d.d., who is the episcopal vice president for South Australia of the . Bishop Mccabe s address his lordship began his address by expressing his pleasure in Wel coming the state conference to his diocese for the first time. A very warm Welcome was extended to his Grace the archbishop of Ade Laide who had graciously set aside All other matters of importance to attend the conference and to his lordship the Bishop of Ragga the episcopal president of the . And formerly Parish priest of this Parish. Or. Santamaria was the Only other individual to whom a personal Welcome a Rould be Given and that Welcome was in a Precia. Tion of what he was doing for the movement and of his unceasing Zeal and untiring labors for its Advance ment. More Christ like the .," said his lord ship is Catholic action and there fore the preparatory Retreat made by the delegates was the Correct preparation for this convention since the purpose of Catholic action is to form the. Minds and wills of its members so that they will always and in All circumstances think the thoughts and have the same desires As our divine master. Its ultimate and sole purpose is to make every person More Christlike in thought word and action. To do that it proposes that each person must know the thoughts of Jesus Christ through his divine truths and each must know the de sires of Christ s heart through his divine precepts. Then when they have put Christ thoroughly and completely into their own lives they will be filled with the desire to put Christ our lord with his love and truth into the lives of every one of their Fellowmen. Thus if the Catholic Farmer so lives in Christ for Christ and with Christ the love of Christ within him will overflow in the love of his neighbor and co operation with him. He will help encourage and co operate with his fellow Farmer no matter who he might be because that Farmer is one whom Christ his master loves and for whose eternal salvation he gave his life. Way of True Christian life in this Way the Catholic Farmer will become intense in his efforts to achieve that splendid objective of the Rural movement to make farming a Way of True Christian life not Only for himself but for every one of his fellow men and women of the land. By his efforts will be directed to the re introduction into farming of the purpose and order designed by god and so disregarded in modern times As our holy father. The Pope has pointed out so clearly when he said for notwithstanding All the. Difficulties the worker in the Field re presents the natural order decreed by god that Man should dominate by his labor material things and not that these material things should dominate him ". What we can learn in material Field his lordship went on to give some of the impressions he gathered during his recent trip to Japan with Cardinal Gilroy How 46 of the 72 millions live on farms or in Rural areas and can now support the whole population from the one fifth of the total acreage of Japan that is arable. He described the in Tensity of the cultivation and the Community life of the Rural villages in which the Farmers lived and the careful and Complete schemes for the conservation of water to pre vent the possibility of failure through occasional drought of the essential crops. Australia s Hope is in True Rural life referring to the utter destruction wrought by the atomic bombs his lordship pointed out that if the present trend of population Drift continues and if As appears Likely another War comes and Australia s capital cities Are destroyed As they could be each destroyed by the explosion of one bomb then there would be left to defend Australia the Mere handful of its Rural popu lation. Australia s Hope in the temporal and in the spiritual spheres lies in the True development of the Rural areas and Rural life according to the principles of our lord Jesus Christ. His lordship concluded his address by begging the Blessing of almighty god upon the deliberations of the conference expressing the Hope that it would achieve much for the cause of Christ and for the True welfare of our beloved Enn Norv.
