THE OBSERVER EDITION Sunday, February 11, 1951 OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR News Section--Page 9A Prayer Campaign 0 Fall River, Mass.--A special "Prayers for Missioners" campaign has been launched by the Diocese of Fall River, Mass., for its native sons and daughters overseas. Inspired by the arrest in China of Maryknoll Bishop Frederick A. Donaghy of New Bedford, Mass. a city in the Fall River Diocese the campaign was started by the diocesan office of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Bishop Donaghy, head of Wuchow Diocese in Kwangsi Pro- vince, South China, has been held in jail by Communists since December 28, 1950. Four other Maryknoll Fathers from the dio- cese, one Maryknoll Sister and one Sister of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary also are stationed in the present danger zone in China. "Many missioners today, some from cities and towns in the Fall River area, are being viciously per- secuted and are in grave danger, states Rev. Raymond T. Considine diocesan director of the Propaga- tion of the Faith. "For courage, they need our special prayers. In using the occasion to count mis- sionary heads, we were surprised to discover that our small diocese with only a little over 200,000 Catholics has almost 50 sons and daughters overseas." Fall River Diocese has 49 native sons and daughters serving as foreign missioners in nearly every corner of the world today. They represent 19 different religious orders and are stationed in 24 separate mission areas. In addi- tion, the diocese has supplied a number of home missioners now working among Indians and Negroes in the United States.

Mission Reports Reveal Struggle For Existence New York -- (NC) -- Reports from the mission fields to the So- ciety for the Propagation of the Faith reveal the hardships shogun- tared by mission priests and Sis- ters in many places in far-off lands. In China it is mostly a struggle of life and death. Many slave as coolies in order to survive. One Bishop, reports say, sells cigar- ettes of his own making and an- other makes sandals. One Apos- tolic Prefect makes and sells soap to keep from starving. Many of the missionary priests drive trucks to eke out a living. Some of them are also confront- ed with difficult housing condi- tions. Children are not angels, al- though they look like cherubs, asleep in their beds at the end of a day. We are glad they are not angels. Yet sometimes their behavior wears us down to the point of ex- asperation. We grow sarcastic and begin to scold. Then it's time to leave the chil- dren with grandmother or a baby- sitter and go to a movie. A short separation will be good for both parent and children. When we are rested, we are able to talk things over quietly with children. They will listen and of- fer intelligent suggestions. They will surprise us with their under- standing. But we must understand the child if he is to understand us. He is restless with a driving energy. He fidgets while he talks. He jumps from one thought to anoth- er. We need to accept his fidgets as natural to his age. He is often sensitive to criticism. He may even fear it. He may suddenly withdraw his confidences if we are too severe. Then our quiet discussion becomes one-sided. We may find ourselves doing all of the talking while his thoughts are far away. Or he may sulk in a silent rebellion which he does EA Convention Program Nears Completion; Sister Madeleva To Address Elementary Unit Meeting ~ashington--(NC)--With final l teacher.

She is Sister Mary Madeleva, multi-decorated poet-president of St. Mary's College for Women, No- tre Dame, Ind. The Holy Cross nun last year was chosen by the Women's National Institute as one of the nation's "seven "Women of Achievement" for 1950. Sister Madeleva also was honored by His Holiness Pope Plus XII with his special blessing for her work in establishing a theological school at St. Mary's College, which she had headed since 1934. In keeping with the general theme of the convention--"Human Rights and Education" -- Sister Madeleva's address will concern the problems of human rights and the that indications point to an at- tendance in excess of 10,000 Cath- olic educators from all parts of the United States and from sev- eral foreign countries. The convention will feature the largest number of commercial ex- hibits in the history of NCEA meet- ings. James E. Cummings, con- vention manager, said arrange- ments have been completed for 24l exhibit spaces, which will display the most up-to-date teaching aids and other modern equipment for schools and classrooms. He said that virtually all the exhibit spaces now have been reserved. All of the convention sessions will be held in Cleveland's Munieio ~al Auditorium. Bishop Edward F. oban of Cleveland. host to the convention, will officiate at the Solemn Pontifical Mass in the aud- itorium which formally will open the sessions.
