World: Pope VATICAN CITY -- !pl -- His Holiness Pope .John XXIII told a group of Italian seminarians that they rnust prepare to work as priests in a real world, not an ideal one. "Today," he said, "a semin- arian's life is not a preparation for a service that one can hope to render in an ideal or dream world. Woe to you if you think that way. You will be heading toward bitter disappointment." "The true priest of the Lord," Pope John continued, "does not live according to unrealizable dreams of earthly happiness, comfort or well-being." Instead, he said, priests now as always "have to fight to remain safe in the Faith and in charily." The Pope told the seminarians that their lives must be a "spiritual retreat" and that they must carry out their work m a manner that is "humble and fervent and that gives with- out asking, without thought of self." The Pontiff concluded: "The young priest of the new times uses new techniques of spreading the Gospel and of well organized pastoral assistance. But he must be careful above all not to consider the apostolate as a technique and must conform his thought and l{fe to the sin- cerity, generosity and sacrifice which are taught by the Chris- tianity to which we must all feel committed."

For this reason the Association of the Holy! Childhood is one of the chief Pontifical Aidl Societies operating within the missionary frame: work of the Church to rescue the Pagan Child fron ignorance and superstition, from moral ant physical harm; which is, without a doubt, one o the primary goals of all missionary endeavor. Since the time of Pope Plus XI, especially, [hi Supreme Pontiffs have stressed over and ave: again the absolute importance of training a Natiw Clergy in every Mission Country. Wisely the recognize this as the basic plan which Christ desir ed from the very beginning. And the cycle of "pel secution history" has taught the lesson all too q uently that the Native Clergy must be pn pared to take over when the Foreign Missionari( withdraw or when they are forced to leave. .The training of future Native Priests and BishoI must begin very early, especially in Mission Land| The minds and hearts of the native youth must fashioned in keeping with the high requiremen of the Religious Life. In this important role tic Missionary Priest, Sister and Lay-Teacher look Holy Childhood for definite and sustained a nual material assistance to train native children schools and orphanages.
