YLV TD.AV, 31. J 961 I FOR A PERSONAL SACRIFICE FOR LENT 1961 ". . . To Embrace The Entire World." In his Lenten message to the Catholics of the United States, pleading for the poor of the whole world, Pope John XXIII speaks from the depths of his great heart: "Since Our election to the Choir of Peter, Our vision has been extended to embrace the entire world, and on every side We see the sufferings of the sick, the privations of the poor and destitute, the agony of the exiled and homeless We, too, deep- ly moved by the trusting confidence, of the count- less ones who look to Us for sustenance and solace, ask: Whence shall we buy bread thai these may eat.3'r Our beloved Pontiff knows from personal ex- perience the challenge of the Church and the great opportunities for the works of mercy in countries of the Near Last'where His Holiness served the Cause of the Church as a Diplomat. As the Suprer~e Shepherd this concern reaches out to oil peoples everywhere who still await the arrival of the Good Samaritan. Today, more than 130,000 Missionaries in 702 areas of the Foreign Missions oct in the name of Pope John XXIII. In his name they play for real the role of the Good Shepherd. In his name they have compassion on the multitude, they care for the sick, they minister to and shelter the Leper, the aged and the young. In his name they work to preserve the pure and to redeem the fallen. Like the Vicar of Christ, they, too, desire to embrace the "Whole Flock." In the name of the Pope they build schools, construct hospitals, establish dispensaries, e r e c t seminaries for the Native Clergy. All these things the,] do that the sweet Name of Jesus might be known and understood and loved, that all men everywhere might know His as Savior. THE SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH MUST a AFFORD GREATER SUPPLIES TO THE MISSONS OF OUR HOLY FATHER IF WE ARE TRULY "TO EMBRACE THE WHOLE WORLD."

Say You Saw It in THE OBSERVER t Dominicans Hint Trouble For Prelate CIUDAD TRUJILLO, Domi- nican Republic- (NC) ~ The government-controlled p r e s s and radio have hinted at vio- lence for a Catholic bishop who ~ublicly denounced the regime of Generalissimo Rafael Tru- |ilia for its persecution of the Church and the people. Two major propaganda or- gans of the Trujillo regime at. tacked Bishop Thomas F. Rein ]y, C.SS.R Prelate Nullis of San Juan de la Maguana, and said: "We can tell him that soon he is going to have to depart with his clergy, because we have reports that nationalist mobs are gathering to give him a good clubbing in his own church. May God grant that it happen soon!" Bishop Reilly, a Redemptor- ist missionary from Boston, had a statement read at all Masses at his cathedral in San Juan the p~evious Sunday, protesting the expulsion of Father Roger Resells, C.I.C.M as "the latest of a long series of violations of human rights and rights of the Church." He told his people that "while the regime of Gen- eral Trujillo publicly professes to respect the rights of the Catholic Church, the regime is and has been for many months engaged in acts of intimidation and persecution." The Bishop also spoke out against the beating of one of his :priests by the secret police, and :the burning of the main doors of his cathedral March 1. He said that "no mention of these episodes has been allowed in ~ary the press or on the radio." Owytr,I Radio Caribe, the station con- trolled by Maj. Juan Abbes Garcia, longtime head of the Trujillo secret police, renewed its invective against Bishop Reilly several days 1 a t e r. Speaking of him "the drooling Yankee who boasts the title of Bishop of San Juan de la Ma- guano," and la~er referred 'o him as "Mister l~eilly"---using the English.
