The first meeting 'which was held on the morning of May 22 was attended by His Eminence Gregory Peter Cardinal Agagi- a n-i a n, Prefect of the Congregation of Propaganda, and by His Excellency the Most Reverend Peter Sigismondi, Presi- dent. and by the General Secretaries of the societies, 'His Excellency t h e Most Reverend Leo G. B. Nigris for the Propa- gation of the Faith, Monsignor Anthony Mazza for the Society of St. Peter Apostle and the Reverend Gastone Courtois of the Sons of Charity for the Missionary Union of the Clergy. Twenty National Directors, twelve from European countries, six from the Americas, one from South Africa and one from Australia took part in the meet- ings with counselors who are resident in Rome. Commemoration Made At the first meeting His Eminence Cardi- nal Agagianian made a commemoration of His Eminence Peter Cardinal Fumasoni Biondi who had opened the meetings of the Pontifical Mission Societies e v e r y year of the twenty-seven during which he was Prefect of the Congregation of the Congregation of Propaganda. Cardinal Fumasoni Biondi was called to his eternal reward a short time after he had address- ed the national directors last year. Wisdom Comes From God The meetings of the present year, said Cardinal Agagianian, actually began on Pentecost the previous day, with the con- secration of fourteen missionary bishops by His Holiness Pope J o h n XXIII . . . eleven Ordinaries and three Auxiliaries Bishops . . . for diocese of India, Basuto- lad, Burma, Niger, Liberia. Kenya, Tan- ganyika, and Colombia. Co-consecrators for the ceremony were His Excellency the Most R e v. Fulton J. Sheen, Auxiliary Bishop of New York and National Direc- tor of the Propagation of the Faith in the United States, and His Excellency t h e M o s t Reverend Edward Mason, Vicar Apostolic of E1 Obeid, Sudan. At this con- secration, the Holy Father spoke of the Congregation of Propaganda as a wise and generous mother. Wisdom comes from God, said His Eminence, Propaganda has been a mother from the time of its founda- tion and its generosity comes from the Christian people of whom the National Di- rectors are agents. "You come here in Springtime and you bring Springtime to us," said His Emi- nence, "Because it is thanks to you that we are able to help the Missions. May you be blessed and may you meet with an ever more complete understanding of the needs of the Missions for ever more efficacious aid to them."
