Priest Resigns RC Post, Seeks Release From Vows TORONTO (CP) Very Rev Edward Boyce, 37, says he has resigned as head of the Eastern Canada region of the Roman Catholic Hedemptorist order and has applied to Rome for dispensation of his priesthood vows.

Henry Loewen Study Hour Service Dome Of The Rock Jerusalem was one of Mahomet's favorite cities. Leg- end has it that the-rock in the Dome of the Rock, a Moslem mosque in that city, bears the imprint of the rear hooves of Mahomet's white horse, which ;he Koran says he rode up into the independent line, states the Baptist professor. Although an outspoken evan- gelical himself, he scorches his fellow religionists for that ultra independent trait. The go-it-alone attitude, ac cording to Henry, has led1 to "an almost endless prolifera- tion of denominations and an eager readiness, of isolated groups of believers, to seal themselves off from almost everything and everyb o d y else." Henry quickly adds that he is not advocating the typical church merger as a desirable alternative. He warns, how- ever, that evangelicals have emphasized independence to (he point of isolation. am not he says, "that adding more rings to the evangelical circus, how- ever glamorous the riders, however spectacular the per- formers, is an effective waj into the immediate future for biblical Christianity." That mania for independence has had disastrous results for the conservative or evangeli- cal wing of the church, states Henry. "By failing to tran- scend their isolation and inde- pendency, evangelical Chris- tians have virtually forfeited a golden opportunity to shape the religious outlook of the twentieth century." A second extreme facing the twentieth century church, ac- cording to Henry, is what he caL's "the foible of ecumenic- ity." The ecumenical emphas i s upon organizational oneness, le fee's, has caused ''denomi- national merger to become the church's big business." But, he maintains, no man her o church unions can be substi- lues for genuine spiritual re newal. The emphasis, Henry contends, must be on "fidelity to God's Word and union with Christ.'' "Unless the church rises to spiritual he states, "it will have no real message for oui" time. The difference be- tween a body and a corpse lies not in the organization of the material elements, but in the spirit which supplies its Life. One does not produce a live body by joining together two corpses." If churchmen continue to fol- low the church union road blindly, they will discover that 'the ecumenical vision is a dream that may turn into a according to Henry.

By HORACE CASTEIJ, Keuters Correspondent LISBON (Reuters) -Offi- cially, a brief but sharp quar- rel between Portugal and the Vatican has been settled. But deep down, Portuguese displeasure over an audience granted by Pope Paul to three anti-Portuguese guerrilla leaders remains, casting a shadow on relations between this staunchly Roman Catho- lic country and the Holy See. The Vatican's explanation that there was no political sig- nificance in the audience and that the three men were re- ceived July 1 as Christians, not as political leaders, was accepted by the Portuguese government. Prime Minister Marcello Caelano said afterward that relations with the Vatican now could return to their- "old cor- diality." But many Portuguese feel that, whatever the Vatican's explanation, the basic fact re- mained that the three guer- rilla leaders could and did make immediate political cap- ital out of their brief meeting with the pontiff. DEPORT STUNS LISBON The three men, Agostinho Nelo, Parcellino Dos Santos and Amilcar Cabral, liead guerrilla movements which have been fighting Portuguese forces in this country's Afri- can territories of Angola, Mozambique and Portuguese Guinea for the last 10 years. They are regarded hi Portu- g a I as Communist-inspired and the country's most bitter enemies. First reports that the Pope had received the three men stunned Lisbon. One news- paper said it seemed incredi- ble that the Vatican should make such an apparently po- litical gesture against a friend as old and loyal as Portugal. The fact that it was the first time a pontiff had received African guerrilla leaders, and that the audience followed an anti-Portuguese conference in Rome, deepened Portugal's official bitterness.
