Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - February 7, 1947, Adelaide, South Australia
National Library of Australia radio replies continued from Page 4. Claim to infallibility Jesus Christ is infallible. Correct. It s quite a Relief to find that we agree on that much. You teach that the Pope and the Church Are infallible. That is our Catholic teaching. But Nam has sinned mud come Short of the glory of god. True but that has nothing to do. With infallibility. You re mixing up infallibility with impel ability. We do not claim that the Pope or any other human being is impeccable i.e., unable to commit sin. We do claim that the Pope on rare occasions within a limited Field and under cer Tain particular conditions is infallible i.e., unable to define wrong Doc Trines As articles of Faith. No insult to Christ you dare to put your Pope and your _ Church on Christ s level Catholic teaching does not imply that at All. Christ As god is in fallible in his own right. The in fallibility of the Pope and of the Church is a derived infallibility communicated to the Church by Christ. If you wish it is the in fallibility of Christ exercised through his Church. In this matter there fore the Pope and the Church As the instruments used by Christ Are not put on a level with Christ. Not blasphemy this is blasphemy. You Are talking of things you do not understand but let me ask you this. Do you believe absolutely that the gospels contain the word of god and Are infallibly True you will say yes to that. But if y6u admit that the writers of them were endowed with infallibility does that mean that you dare to put them on Christ s level and that you Are guilty of Blas Phemy the evangelists were human beings. Each of them would admit that he had sinned and come Short of the glory of god. So those considerations can t be an argument against the possibility of a human being receiving the gift of infallibility from god. �. Gambling you said in a recent broadcast that gambling is not a sin. I said that in itself gambling is not sinful. People who Gamble to excess using Money they should devote to the payment of just debts or in supporting those dependent upon them or again people who employ dishonest Means to obtain Success these people sin by such abuses. But gambling in itself and apart from such abuses is not sinful. If it were you would have to say that All Book makers Are engaged in a sinful and wicked profession of its very nature. That s absurd. Perfectly honorable and thoroughly Christian men engage in bookmaking. Gambling is not sin Ful in itself. Christ at Randwick if it is not would you expect to see Jesus Christ if on Earth to Day at Randwick races i would not expect him to be sufficiently interested in such things to attend Randwick races. But if he did not go there it would not be because it would be sinful to do so. Try to live up to the title you take and have some common sense. Every thing is not sinful which one would not expect Christ to do. You would not expect him to Don a policeman s uniform and direct the traffic in a City Street. That does t make such a policeman s occupation a sinful one. Games of Chance would you expect to fed him play Imp two up Baccarat or Hornie Homie i would not expect him to he sufficiently interested in those things to want to engage in them. But that does t mean that they Are sinful forms of amusement or recreation in themselves. He would of course Tell thobe who do engage in them to observe such Laws of the land As have been made by i lawful civil authority to regulate them. From that Point of View he would say again Render to Caesar the things that Are cae sars keep the Law of the these Are ail classified As gambling. That does t mean that they Are to be classified As sinful. Can you explain this it is for you to explain the reasons for your Assumption that gambling is a sinful thing of its very nature. You just take that for granted and offer not a single consideration to justify your views on the subject. For the rest 1 think i have sufficiently explained the Catholic attitude towards such suggestions As you have made. Timber cheapest rates prompt delivery w limited Timber merchants tort Adelaide conducted tour through spam or Denville issues Challenge or. Alfred Denville . For Newcastle was highly Indig Nant at the reports brought Back from Spain by miss Monica Whately mrs. Leah Manning mp., and mrs. N. Brake when interviewed by a representative of the Catholic times recently. The three ladies travelled to Spain under the auspices of the emergency committee for democratic Spain. Or. Denville who has just re turned from Spain pointed out that mrs. Brake is the Secretary of the International brigade association and yet Safe was allowed to travel freely through Spain. Spain cannot be quite As bad As it is painted he commented if such a woman is allowed to visit the country. He dismissed As nonsense miss Whately s statement that there is considerable opposition to the present regime among the clergy. These ladies should have rear used he said that they Only met those clergy whom their hosts wanted them to meet. I do not doubt that there Are a few clergy in Spain who Are opposed to the Franco regime but clergy in opposition to the government Cam be found in any country in the world. Met All classes no one fathered me when i went to Spain continued or. Denville. I. Went As a free Lance. I went where i liked and spoke to everybody i met. I met people in the Back streets of Madrid and in the docks at Barcelona where there Are still a few who give the clenched fist Salute the three women he alleged were on a conducted tour and were not Able to meet the Ordinary people. Therefore they were unable to give an unbiased account of life in Spain to Day. Or. Denville had several questions to ask mrs. Manning who had painted a terrible picture of economic conditions in the country. Did she Realise for instance that the reason for the shortage and High Price of Olive Oil was that Spain was compelled to buy Back from America the Oil she had sold her but at vastly increased prices Flere Are some of the other queries he would like to put to mrs. Manning. He promised that if she was Able to convince him that he was wrong he would be prepared to do Allan his Power " to help her in the future. Full pay on sunday when she was in Spain on Franco s birthday did she not feel the enthusiasm of the people for their Leader or did she think that the whole thing was stage managed does she Realise that in 1945, the Spanish government set aside an emergency fund of 660 million pesetas Over �16,000,000 to meet the prob Lem of unemployment in agriculture caused by the drought which took on the character of a National disaster and which was without precedent for Over a Century does she Realise that by a Law of july 13, 1940, All workers have the right to receive full salary on Sun Day the obligatory weekly Day of rest and that there Are thirteen religious feast Days and two National holidays to which the same Law applies ? does she Realise that Large families Are Given special privileges they enjoy a. Reduction in the Price of rail Way tickets and in the Cost of All land and water travel within Spain. And preference is Given to them for Entrance to bathing resorts sanatoriums where they Are Given reduced rates. The Spanish people Are a different people altogether from the people i knew in 1931, 1934 and 1936," concluded or Denville. They All look Well fed and they Are certainly Well dressed. This is most noticeable among the clergy who in the old Days were often Down at Heel. Now one won t see a badly dressed priest in the whole of pre fabulous a new Block of built up Flats is to be built in the Elpaso Quarter of Malaga.
