The Christian Brothers ,ff California si.ce 1882 Father Keller Surrenders Leadership o f :1 "istophers New York (NC) -- After 23 years as director of the Chris- tophers, Father James Keller, M.M., announced he is entrust- ing leadership of the movement to Father Richard Armstrong, M.M., who joined the Christopher staff in 1960 and has served as assistant director. Father Keller, 68, cited age and health factors as reasons for the move. He said he will remain at Christopher headquarters here and devote himself to research, writingand serving as special consultant. Father Armstrong came to the Christophers after completing studies at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia Uni- versity. He was ordained at Mary- knoll, N.Y., in 1959. As director, Father Armstrong will have sole responsibility for editing Christopher News Notes, a seven-times-a-year pamphlet sent free to more than one million persons. Other duties include a weekly TV program carriedby 230 stations, a daily column in 72 newspapers, and supervision of courses and seminars at the Chris- topher Center in Midtown Man- hattan. Father Keller started the Chris- tophers in 1945. The basic ideaofthe Christopher movement, which has no member- ships, branches or dues, is to motivate persons to make a pos- itive contribution to such fields as government , education, labor relations, literature and enter- tainment. In talks to hQusandS of people throughout the United States, Father Keller has stressed the need for people who believe in God and the dignity of the in- dividual to work harder for good than others do for evil. The Christopher motto is: "Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness." Vicar Impressed By Morale of GIs New York (NC)-- Archbishop Terence J. Cooke camehome from his Christmas visit with American GIs in Vietnam, enthused over the high plane of morale and deep dedication he found among them. Upon arrival Jan. 5 at John F. Kennedy Airport here, the arch- bishop of New York, who also is military vicar of the U.S. armed forces, went to our Lady of the Sky chapel for a dedication ser- vice. Archbishop Cooke presented to the chapel an American flag in honor of his predecessor, the late Francis Cardinal Spellman, who before his death in December, 1967, made 16 consecutive Christ- mas visits to U.S. servicemen abroad. "The morale of the men was tremendous," Archbishop Cooke told newsmen following the chapel service. "Their wonderful spirit of dedication is something of which we can be proud -- their sacri- fice and devotion to duty is some- thing which we can appreciate." The archbishop said there is no group anywhere more interestedin peace than the American service- men in Vietnam. "They are hoping for peace with justice," Archbishop Cooke said. Canons CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 come more obvious. "Although some may find this change in the Mass difficult to accept, let us not forget our charity for others who have a great spiritual need for varied ways of expressing their rela- tionship to God. True Catholics are deeply concerned about the needs of their brothers. The Holy Father and his liturgical com- mission of bishops from all over the world have told us of the real value in these prayers: The pur- pose of these improvements is clearly spiritual and pastoral: to open the biblical treasures and the riches of the tradition of the universal Church inthe manner of celebrating the Eucharist more generously for the clergy and faith- ful, and to facilitate the under- standing and vital assimilation of this wealth, Welcoming these new Eucharistic Prayers with open-mindedness, will enrich the liturgy for all of us." "Whenever there was an oppor- tunity to offer Mass, the Mass was offered for peace." The archbishop had praise, too, for the Vietnam people. He said he found the Vietnamese "gentle, active and hardworking." Archbishop Cooke said he found "a tremendous ecumenical spirit not alone among the chaplains, but all of the servicemen -- living together as one family."
