Office Phene S Last week we spoke of the irst require- ment in building the "Church .Visible" at home and abroad, and that requirement is: PRAYER. Fortified with the seeds of spirt: tual growth, the second condition for mis- sion development must follow, and that second condition is: GENERQSITY. Pope Pins XII in his Mission Encyclical, "The Gift of Faith," said it so well in these words: "But would a prayer for the Mis- sionary Church be sincere if it were not accompanied, wherever possible, by a gesture of generos- ity?" American Catholics generous be- yond a question. Look at our Churches, Schools, Hospitals and works of Charity. American Catholics are good to the Mis- sions. Last year several million dollars were gathered all around the world by the SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH. Of this amount more than fifty per cent came from Catholics in the United States. It is a great deal of money even when you realize that it represents only a per capita contribution of $0.31. Generosity for the Missions comes easy to a people who recognize a spiritual responsi- bility to their fellow-men around the world. At the present time there are over seven hundred Mission areas throughout the world which depend upon the PROPAGA- TION OF THE FAITH for financial assist- ance. Working in these territories are 125,- 000 Missionary Priests. Sisters. Brothers, and Lay Apostles. Under the direction of the Holy Father, this spiritual army is en- gaged in establishing the Church and per- forming the spiritual and corporal works of mercy, For the most part all their ma- terial requirements must come from the outside. Their progress is often slowed down not by lack of zeal but rather by shortage of funds. Pope Plus XII express- ed it very clearly in these words: "What could the missionary not do, who is paralyzed in his apos- tolate for want of means, with the m o n e y that a Christian spends occasionally on passing fancies! May every member of the Faith, every family, every Christian community question it- self on this point." In pl.anning for the future, be mindful of the Missions: No bequest is too small to further the work of the Church in Mission Lands where opportunities are so great. m m -J mmm iim li al lim im i m ii The Society for the Propagation of the Faith 507 Avenue B, Sterling, Illinois I am enclosing my personal gift of I $ for the support of Catholic I Missions throughout the world.
