Book tells of miracles wrought by agricultural missionaries by Louis Cassels up religion editor in his vivid parable of the last judgment Jesus pictures the King of heaven sitting on a throne with All Mankind arrayed before him the righteous on his right hand and the wicked on his left. The King Speaks to those on his right. A come enter and possess the kingdom. For when i was hungry you gave me food a surprised the righteous ask a lord when was it that we saw you hungry and fed you a and the King replies a anything you did for one of my Brothers Here however Humble you did for no one takes this parable More seriously than the Small band of dedicated christians who Are serving the people of undeveloped countries As agricultural missionaries. First in Field More than 50 years before the . Government began sending technical Aid missions abroad american agricultural missionaries were at work in the Backwoods villages of Asia Africa and latin America. With practically no resources except their knowledge and their Bare hands they helped to dig Wells build compost heaps Plant seedbeds Check erosion. They showed Farmers How to increase the yield of each previous plot of land by using better seeds and fertilizers. They introduced protein Rich crops such As peanuts and soybeans. They Learned How to Cope with the plagues which periodically wiped out the Chicken flocks. They organized credit unions to deliver Farmers from the clutches of usurious moneylenders who charged them up to 200 per cent interest on Loans. They founded marketing cooperatives. They taught the Village women How to use local products such As sisal Straw to make handicrafts that could be sold in the cities. Heroic efforts recounted the heroic efforts of the agricultural missionaries and some of the miracles they be achieved in raising living standards among the poorest people on Earth Are recounted in a new Book called a crusade against hunger Harper amp Row by i. W. Moomaw an Ohio Farmer who went to India in 1925 As an agricultural missionary for the Church of the Brethren. In recent years Vatican Council accomplishments related at ecumenism workshop Winooski Park a a Veteran Pau list editor told the workshop in ecumenism at St. Michael s College tuesday that no one of the 16 documents approved by the Council should be considered a a paper a to absolute be a document a the Rev. John b. Sheerin . Declared a is to Lay a dead hand upon it. The Council fathers were not concerned about making the documents the last word in Reform. The Bishops main concern in Many instances was to make sure that the documents kept the doors open to possibilities of further a the texts Are not the crystallization of the Best thinking in the Council but Only a foreshadowing of better things to come. The dynamism of aggiornamento released at the Council was More important than any text especially in View of the fact that Manv texts were the product of Compromise for the Sake of consensus. Father Sheerin editor of the Catholic world and an observer at the Council spoke on a has Vatican ii improved Catholic protestant relations a he said that Compromise was not a betrayal of evangelical honesty. The Bishops he said a were realists anxious to produce documents that could be implemented not grandiose professions of Liberal objectives. We Amer Lucians Are aware that a unanimous supreme court decision has a better Chance of being successfully implemented than does a 5-4 the Central document of Vatican ii he said was the a Constitution on the a the Public image of the Catholic Church has been that of an institution modelled on the absolutist lines of the roman Empire. The second Vatican Council rejected the notion of the Church As an absolute papal monarchy and approved the doctrine of collegiality. It will not Only bring the Pope closer to the Bishops but the Bishops closer to the priests and the priests closer to the people. The Ideal of collegiality is authority exercised in a framework of the decree on religious Liberty father Sheerin said has a Stormy career but its theme is now in Safe Haven As an official teaching of the Catholic Church. It is the Basic founds Tion for ecumenism. There could be no dialogue or collaboration Between catholics and protestants unless the Catholic Church recognized the right of every Man to follow his conscience and to organize his life publicly As Well As privately in Accord with his a the decree on ecumenism a father Sheerin said a builds upon the right of conscience and proceeds to recognize the protestant and orthodox conscience with respect. The decree has helped to convince protestants of the ecumenical sincerity of the Catholic father Sheerin cited some of the decree s major features a i it recognizes that the Catholic Church must Bear some of the responsibility for the breakup of Unity at the time of the reformation. 2, it affirms that All who have been justified by Faith in baptism Are incorporated into Christ have a right to be called Christian and with Good reason Are accepted As Brothers by the children of the Catholic Church. Note that it does not say that All baptized Are members of the Catholic Church. The ecumenical problem is the reintegration of All Christian churches and communities into the Church of Christ. 3, the decree recognizes other Christian churches As churches and ecclesia communities. The decree shows that Christian churches share a common supernatural reality and that god uses these churches As Means of salvation for their members. 4, the decree evinces a genuine ecumenical attitude toward protestants. 5, the decree urges collaboration Between catholics and other christians in the civic and social Fields. It is reluctant to commend common worship and says that the decision Here in each Case lies with the local Bishop but it does Praise joint participation in prayer service with other christians. On dec. 4, 1965, Pope Paul personally participated in a joint prayer service with protestants and orthodox at St. Paul a outside the Walls where Pope John first announced he would Convene the second Vatican Council. 6, the decree urges greater collaboration Between Catholic and other Christian theologians and scripture ecumenical workshop postponed Williamstown mass. A the ecumenical liturgical workshop to be sponsored by the we hams College Chapel has been changed from saturday april 30 to saturday May 14, it was announced today. The change in Date is to accommodate Alexander Peloquin music director of the Cathedral of is. Peter and Paul Providence r. I., who will be conducting a diocesan festival on the earlier Date. On May 14 Peloquin will be joined on the panel by John Ferris organist and choirmaster of Harvard University and Kenneth Roberts assistant professor of music at Williams and organist and choirmaster of Thompson memorial Chapel at Williams in a Day Long series of discussions demonstrations and group activities which Deal with music for a new a a ecumenical Church. The May 14 workshop will be open to the Public and is especially designed for clergy organists and choirmaster and choristers in the Berkshire area. Registration will be handled by professor Roberts from whom a brochure detailing events of the workshop is available. He has kept in close touch with agricultural missionaries in All parts of the world As a Field representative of the interdenominational Agency agricultural missions inc. Moomaw does no to dwell on the hardships of the work. He is absorbed with the results the Well nigh incredible transformations that take place when modern farming technology begins to lift people from the Brink of starvation and introduce them to a new life of Hope and human dignity. But at the end of the Book he Speaks out with the Long suppressed bitterness of a Man who has seen too Many babies starve. A at present the churches have 320 agricultural and Home economics workers in service abroad a he says. A they make up Only 3 per cent of the total number of american protestant missionaries sent abroad. Give Only crumbs a today the protestant churches of in suit port average of member per sents Little America Are giving of this work an ten cents per year. This repro More than the crumbs that fall from our tables. A there is no situation in which a Small investment can do so much to relieve human suffering. Why Are we doing so Little Why this feeble response when the Church is confronted by the greatest Opportunity of the Century does this represent the heart of the american people a in the parable of the last judgment the King turns to the people on his left and tells them they re unfit for the kingdom of heaven because a when i was hungry you gave me nothing to they also Are surprised and ask when this happened. And the King answers a anything you did not do for one of these Humble ones you did not do for sea rings it Kun Al a r v Arlington Between the 12th and 18th centuries the ruling class in Venice cast a ring into the Adriatic sea each year As a Token of their claim to Dominion Over the sea. Remember you get double triple a a so Blue Stamps every wednesday at grand Union Empire no minimum Purchase necessary the other decrees also reflect brotherly concern for those not of the Catholic Faith a father Sheerin said. A the Constitution on the Church in the modern world a he said a constitutes a Clear break with the last remnants of medieval thinking. The text is admirable for its intensely sympathetic attitude toward the world. I think catholics can look upon the Council achievement with realistic optimism. We have to be realistic in admitting the Council left the problems of mixed marriages birth control and nuclear warfare unsolved and we must realize that implementation of Council reforms will require a colossal amount of work. But in the Light of our meager expectations on the eve of the Council the actual achievements now seem just Short of Shaftsbury a pcs meets Shaftsbury a at the March meeting of the woman a society of Christian service of the first methodist Church held in the Church social room it was voted to contribute to the District fund for retired missionaries and Deaconesses.
