This was reported here by Msgr. Irving A. DeBlanc, direc- tor of the Family Life Bureau, National Catholic Welfare Con- ference, who attended the recent congress of the International Un- ion of Family Organizations in Madrid. Msgr. DeBlanc, who was re- elected to the executive board of the IUFO during the meeting last month, said delegates to the 2ongress from some 40 nations "universally agree" that women with pre-school children should not work outside the home "ex- cept in extremely dire circum- stances." Cites Disadvantages The Monsignor said delegates agreed that the working mother Dial WO 3-5409 330 S.

In view of these circumstanc- es, Msgr. DeBlanc said, the IUFO delegates felt that "for the few economic, social and psy~ chological benefits they receive, mothers who work outside the home are paying too heavily.'' Adopt Resolutions Resolutions adopted by the 14 year old IUFO reflect the con- cern of the organization of pub- lic and private family agencies with the problem of the working mother. Among the recommend- ations were these: ---That the father's salary be adequate to support his family in reasonable comfort. --That there be general recog- nition of the need for family al- lowances by which large fami- lies would receive proportionate- ly more assistance from the state. --That, in cases where women must work out of necessity, they should receive as much money as a man doing the same work. --That there be experiments in arranging part-time employ- ment for mothers who must work outside the home at hours when their children are in school. --That there be recognition of the wife's need for a day off each week and that efforts be made to promote family vaca. tions: ---That mothers help each oth- er in caring for children, shop- ping and doing housework. Need Co-operative Efforts Msgr. DeBlanc particularly emphasized the need for interna- tional co-operative efforts to re- lieve women of undue work bur- dens and protect their role as wives and mothers.

"Christian countries should have an understanding of human dignity and should be concerned not only with the minimum well- being of their own people, but with the distinctively Christian concept of world brotherhood," he commented. Management Obligation He also stressed the obligation of management to respect and make allowances for the unique situation of the working mother in those cases where it is un- avoidable that she seek outside employment. He said there is need for rec- ognition of the fact that a wom- an makes her special and vital contribution to the welfare o~ so- ciety precisely by fulfilling her roles as wife and mother. Msgr. DeBlanc noted that at the turn of the century only" 5% of the married women in the U.S. worked outside the home, whereas today the figure is 30%.

Our Lord criticized those who followed Him rather for the bread He gave them, than because of Himself Expressed in psychological language, there are differences between a sentiment and a disposition. The Pharisee in the front of the temple had a very conscious sentimenL of religion and all that it involved, such as fasting and paying tithes. The publican in the back of the temple had a disposition toward religion which was less on the surface and by which he instinctive- ly knew to beg God foregiveness for his sins. Attitude Desired Sentiments are consciously formed; disposi- tions are unconsciously formed and are what we call "instinctive." He who goes to Mass re- luctantly on Sunday has a conscious sense of duty; he who goes to Mass naturally to love and worship God, has a disposition or a second nature of religion. So it is with our attitude towards the Mis- sions. Those " ho think of it as a Mission Sun- day duty are a long way from those who think of the Missions whenever they think of the Holy Father and the Mission of Christ to preach the Gospel to all nations. Do you know how we would like you to feel about the Society for the Propagation of the Faith: Like a man working in a boiler factory, who hardly notices the noise, except when it stops. Prayer is to be like that. Religion Corporate We are always to be sub-consciously aware of God, so that we know when He stops being there. This is the way the Society for the Pro- pagation of the Faith is to all the directors, all who work and sacrifice for it. The slightest stopping of our dedication to it even heightens our sense of duty toward it. Because we live in a civilization in which religion is so often considered an individual affair, we 'are apt to forget that Christianity regards religion as corporate. We are bound up first of all with those who share the same faith and eat the same Divine Bread; but we are also held responsible for the hunger, the evil, and the ignorance, the sufferings of every- one in the world. Common Suffering We are with Christ co-redeemers of the world. As Christ suffered in His Body for the salvation of the world so we unite ourselves to His sufferings through self-denial for the sake of His Mystical Body the Church. If it were not for noble Catholic souls who deny themselves the world would long ago have been overwhelmed with wickedness. The Catholic who does not feel the lashes and the persecution visited upon four million Cath- olics in China has failed in his vocation! Would a mother or a father be indifferent to the suf- fering of their sick child? Then, how shall, we who belong to the family of the Church not feel the trials of our brothers in*Mission lands as our very own agony?
