10A OUR SUNDAY VISITOR The Observer Edition January 6, 1952 Irish Bishop Strongly Indicts Welfare State Dublin --(NC)--- The welfare state and its enactment was strongly criticized at the annual meeting of the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Belfast by Bishop Dan- iel Mageean of Down and Connor. Saying that there are many per- sons nowadays who prefer the dole to a "decent day's work," the Bishop warned that the welfare state might undermine the sturdy spirit of independence character- istic of the Irish. "Unfortunately," he added, "the welfare state is coming in. We have a lot of evidence around us. To my mind, although the welfare acts are doing a tremendous amount of good they are necessar- ily doing a lot of harm. "They don't give the ordinary lpeople the opportunity of exercis- Ing Christian charity. One of the great benefits we are losing by the establishment of the welfare state Is that of Christian charity, which is growing cold. And to gain any advantage in the welfare state the ~o OOr suffer the humility of having undergo a gruelling process in which all their private affairs are Investigated. A great many people ~refer to draw the dole rather than o a decent day's work." In a sermon at Holy Cros~ Church, Belfast, Father Celsus C.P., said: "The social schemes an( services of smug governments are lust so much vinegar and gall, or the poor are always with us and the poor still want."

His !process of rehabilitation, as the Rev. Jose Maria Martin Lopez, is in progress in Granada, his dio- cese. In asking to be accepted anew among his brethren in the priest- hood, Father Martin Lopez made public a voluntary retraction of all that may have given scandal during his abandonment of the sacred ministry, when he devoted himself entirely to the writing that brought him renown. He warned others not to follow his example in leaving the priest- hood. "May those who are blind- ed by the false glory of a name or by the false glitter of money know that these have been for me the ~ourc~dof pain, remorse, and tears," "I do not believe that I have in any way attacked Church dog- ma or-Christian morals in my works," Father Martin Lopez de- clared. "However, having writ- ten for a frivolous public and in a mundane environment, not befit- ting priestly dignity and decorum, I hereby retract anything in my writings which might be against Christian principles and I submit~ everything to the review and opin- ion of the Church. I am willing to withdraw or destroy whatever I am commanded." He said God granted him "the gift of His grace and Divine Mercy, so that I return to Him and wrap myself within this glorious garment of my priestly cassock."
