"There has never been a mass like this said an astonished priest from Auck- land, New Zealand. At times the rhythrtm be- came so contagious that the audience Joined spontaneously in tlie hand-clapping, as if the occasion were a show instead of a mass. But a priest explained that tte display made the mass no less sacred in its central sac- rament on the eucharist, the focus of the Eucharistic Con- gress, in which Catholics be- lieve that bread and win mirac- ulously becomes the flesh and blood of Christ at the moment of consecration. The new involvement of ab- original culture in the euchar- ist was regarded by prelates as an extension of tlie congress theme of human brotherhood, taken from the words of Christ to the apostles, one an- other as I have loved you."

J_____________________________________IH_T Altho By PAUL 5IOFMANN New York Times Service ROME The current best seller in ecclesiastical book- stores here is a slim volume by a Spanish Jesuit who teaches at the pontifical Gregorian Uni- versity and praises Karl Marx as a "prophet." The author, Rev. Jose Maria niez-AleErria, also accuses the Roman Catholic Church of "vis- ceral suggests that the Vatican divest iiself of its riches, and describes priest- ly celibacy as "a factory of madmen." Diez-Algria, who teaches so- ciology at the church's fore- most institution of higher learning, has publicly criticized the conservative Vatican estab- lishment before. MEDDLING In March, 1970, Diez-Alegria and two other Jesuits of the Gregorian University faculty, in a newspaper interview, de- nounced the Vatican's opposi- tion to the divorce bill that was then before the Italian par- j liament as undue meddling in the country's domestic affairs. Diez-Alegria, who is 61 years old, has long been close to groups of left-wing Roman j Catholics in Italy, Spain, West 1 Germany and other countries. M His new book, entitled Yo iiCrco en la Espcranza (I bs- i licvc in has been pub- I lished by Desclee Brouwcr, in I Bilbao, Spain.

"Father Diez-Alegria's book is going to scandalize the Vatican even more than Father Kung did." Rev. Hans Kung is a Swiss theologian who teaches at Tu bingen University in West Ger many. In recent books, he has questioned papal infallibility and other traditional churcl doctrines. Diez Alegria, says he owes much to Marx although he does not subscribe to the materialis- tic philosophy of Marxism. GUIDED "Marx has guided me to re- discover Jesus Christ and the meaning of his he writes. Diez-Alegria contends that the Roman Catholic Church "as it has existed in history, contains little that is Christian." Diez-Alegria says that Chris- tianity must not become a po- litical instrument of Marxist so- cialism, "but neither must it be- come a political instrument of anti-communism, as it has been." According to the Jesuit, "ac- ceptance of the Marxist analy- sis of history, with its elements regarding the historical mean- ing of class struggle and the ne- cessary overthrow of private property, of the means of pro- duction, is not in any op- posed to faith and to the gos- pels."
