Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - July 14, 1944, Adelaide, South AustraliaNational Library of Australia radio replies froth station 2sm, Sydney broadcast on sunday last by the Rev. Or. L. Rumble m.s.c., in answer to questions submitted to or. Rumble s session from station 2sm. The Pope italian Catholic Tambar Springs w. Elliott Armidale. A the anglican Synod recently at Armidale Bishop Moyes said that the direction of the roman Catholic Church is Ana must be without something of a that is the opinion of Bishop Moyes and it is based on ignorance and prejudice. Even though the Pope happens to be an italian by birth from the moment of his election As Pope he ceased to be an italian subject and incurred the grave obligation to fulfil his duties independently of All merely National considerations. There is nothing specifically italian in his concept of the Christian religion or in his administration of the Catholic Church. Since he is a human being whoever is elec Ted Pope has to be born in some particular part of this world. He can t be born in All countries at once. And if because the Pope happens to have been born in Italy his direction of the Church must be italian then if he were born in France it would have to be French if in America american if in Germany German if in England English and so on in definitely. If there were anything in the strange ideas of Bishop Moyes it would be impossible for Christ to establish a visible Universal Church with any visible head at All against whom a charge of National Bias could not be Bro Erht non italian i even before the fascist revolution 1 with its outburst of wild National ism said the Bishop it was in conceivable that the italian go j verment would permit a non i italian prelate to be enthroned in the Vatican.", that is nonsense. The Popes have never acknowledged the jurisdiction of the italian government. Prior to the concordat acknowledging that Vatican City was not italian territory the Popes voluntarily remain i de prisoners of the Vatican refusing to set foot on italian soil subject to the temporal Rule of the italian government. If the cardinals had chosen to elect a non italian the the italian government could have done nothing about it even had it wished. But what advantage does Bishop Moyes see in the election of a non italian Pope ? such a Pope could not behave differently from a Pope who was italian by birth. He could not favor his own nation nor allow his nationality to influence his. Administration. As a matter of fact he would lose his nationality from the moment of his election. These of j sections proposed by Bishop Moyes could come to the mind Only. Of a Man whose thinking cannot Rise above narrow National limitations. Religiously to the Catholic there Are no National distinctions no foreigners no strangers. Spiritually every Catho Lic is equally a member of Christ. All Are one in him. And National differences disappear in the presence of the Unity of the Universal Church. The Musty old Vatican the atmosphere of the Vatican said Bishop Moyes is not Only italian but mediaeval that is sheer Guesswork. Has Bishop Moyes Ever visited the Vati can has he even come into con tact with its atmosphere let him ask the accredited representatives of the various countries at the Vatican whether they have detected in the holy see a world embracing Outlook or a merely narrow National italian View. Let him ask them whether in their dealings with the holy see they have found the Pope thoroughly Well informed and up to Date or whether they have encountered Only a mediaeval ism centuries behind the times. The a Musty old italian Vatican idea is the child of prejudice and nothing else. A Friendly approach realising these facts and trying honestly to appreciate the attitude of the Church of Rome add Bishops Moyes t believe that we ought to collaborate with open eyes to the utmost she will give.". The facts Bishop Moyes asks his anglicans to Realise Are not facts. That he believes he is trying honestly to appreciate the attitude of the Church of Rome makes things All the More pathetic. He is so obviously incapable of appreciating the Atti tude of the Catholic Church. He suggests collaboration with open eyes but eyes open to what they Are eyes clouded with suspicion How Ever wide open they May be and Reading their own prejudices into All that they behold. It would not foe a very Happy approach to make Friendly advances to a Man with the introductory declaration i suspect you to be a liar a schemer and a scoundrel but on some things i think we could get along together All right. But no tricks mind you i be got my eyes fade better understanding we ought to collaborate declared the Bishop for the Sake of the world s needs for the Sake of National Unity and for the Sake of a better understanding of each i can but remark that no one needs a better understanding of the Catho Lic Church than Bishop Moyes him self. His address to those present at the anglican Synod of Armidale could serve Only to intensify their misunderstanding in regard to that Church. We cannot work together he added without some of the barriers now set up moving according to dictates of love and truth under the guidance of clearly Bishop Moyes meant Well. He not even advert to the fact that during his address he was care fully bolstering up the very barriers which will have to be removed if love and truth Are indeed to prevail. And i Hope at least that my comments upon his description of the Catholic Church have made this Clear. That would be some contribution towards a better understanding Between anglicans and catholics. And with that i conclude my treatment of this subject. Death and Faith slipping Sydney at the beginning of this terrible War my son was killed. There is no one who hears of that who will not be filled with sympathy for you admiration for your son in his Devotion to duty and gratitude to you both for so great a sacrifice for the common Good. Now i find it terribly hard to keep my Faith in god. That is not your reason speaking but your present despondent tells us that god cannot exist for the Mother whose boy comes Home safely and yet not exist for the Mother whose boy does not return. If your own son had returned you would not have found it hard to believe in god. Yet god would be non existent then if your son s failure to return proves that he is non existent now. But As i have said your difficulty does not arise from reason but from a sorrow clouding your mind for the time being. And it is with your Sor Row that i must Deal not with the logic of your thoughts. Sorrow without Hope i still Pray night and morning and All through the Day. That in itself can be an excessive indulgence in your sense of loss. Not for a moment would i wish to Dis courage you in your prayers. But even prayers must be kept within reasonable limits. True prayer is never frantic. No one of course could blame you for experiencing a great sorrow. While hearts Are human they break. And god does not want us to be inhuman. Jesus himself sanctioned our tears by his own when he heard of the death of his Friend Lazarus. But still As st. Paul wrote to the thessalonians we christians must not sorrow As those who have no Hope. We will not have you ignorant Brethren he wrote concern ing them that Are asleep that you be not sorrowful even As others who have no Hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and Rose again even so them who have slept through Jesus will god bring with i thess., in 12-13. Advage to a Mother i simply drag on from one Day to another and wonder whether i will Ever see him again. Frorup what you Tell me of him in the rest of your letter if you yourself serve god and save your soul there is no doubt whatever about your future reunion with him in heaven. But you must make an Effort to divert i your thoughts to other considerations besides those of your own sense of loss. To drag on from Day to Day in self centred misery is hot right and your own son would be the last to be Happy in the thought of your doing that. If you will let your thoughts go out to other considerations it is possible for you to find Consolation in realising that he is free from the aft wieties so Friis Ahkii Nitos 1 thought of his courage and generosity. Nor should you let the feeling that you Are now without him make you forget the years you had with him and god s goodness in giving you such a son of whom you should be so proud and whose love for you was As great a Joy to you As your love to him. To be ungrateful for what we have received giving Way Only to complaints that we have not received More is unworthy of a character with any Nobi Lity at All. The Shock of grief i think if i could be convinced that i will see him again life would be Worth living and i could endure my stay on this Earth living in Hope. If you want that conviction make a big act of resignation to god s holy will and renew your determination to love and serve Christ in a Way befit Ting the Mother of such a son. But be patient with yourself making allow Ance for time to take the Edge off your sorrow. This death has been such a blow to me As to deprive me of my Faith. That is not. A True interpretation of your state. The Shock has made things seem very dark but the Sun will Shine again. I really do not want to lose it be cause i know that if Only i can keep it it will help me through. No one who has really lost her Faith could have written those words. A Catholic neighbor a Catholic neighbor of mine said if i wrote to you you would be Able to explain things to me. I can simply say that you can be quite sure of one thing and that in that god knows what is Best for each one of us. We May not see that now but we will in due course and we must take it for granted in the mean time. She tells me that she says a Rosary for me every Day. Some Day you will understand what that has meant to you also. She explained that prayer to me and i think it very Beautiful. You should try to learn still More from her about the Catholic religion. If Only i could have the Faith she has i think i could be Happy. You could have it even As your son the moment he went to god knew it to be the truth. But to. Obtain it it is necessary to study the Catholic religion and to Pray earnestly to god for the Grace of Faith in it. This life not All i wonder Why god does these things to us when we try to bring up our children to love god if this life were All there is no answer to that question. But this life is not All. And you should not begrudge your son his happiness with the god you taught him to love. 1 a the Way out sometimes i think i can endure it no _ longer and look for a Way out. Such thoughts should come Only to be banished at once. There is a Way out but not along the lines of cowardice. The Only Way out is in with and through Christ who is the Way the truth and the life. Though you have a certain degree of Faith you Are not solidly grounded in the Christian religion. What you have hitherto been. Taught is proving in sufficient when put to the test by such a trial As this. Send me your name and address and det me Send you in. A own some Bop let Catholic Rel in.
