C.tliolic Youths City (NC) -- The Holy declared itself on the theological renewal but time has put theolo- their guard against turn- into '.'obfuscation H01y See fears may be and altered are "those Which always, everywhere were professed, or less awareness." These encouragements and fears were expressed in a letter sent on Pope Paul VI's behalf by Papal Secretary of State Amleta Cardinal Cicognani to Bishop Carlo Colombo, president of the Italian Theological Association. The occasion was the third nat- ional congress meeting at Sestri Levante on the subject of "Theo- logical Language Today." The letter noted that theology, What is a Controlled Label wondrous emporium of sus- tenance, convenience and supply that is the modern supermarket he shopper goods American be- er childhood imagininss and at time a widening valley of deci- st beyond understanding. 7000 to 8000 different pro- her as she shops today and well-known brands and S aS nw and unknown as tomorrow. advertising, home econo- and congressmen about "private brands"-- brands"--"quality"--and reigns !

"It should be noted that the Second Vatican Ecumenical Coun- cil itself showed fidelity to like models," the pontifical letter ob- served. "It was unshakable fidelity to the teaching of the Apostolic See and of the ecumenical councils that rendered the Fathers and Doctors o[ the Church faithful witnesses and highly authoritative interpreters of the deposit of the Faith. "Therefore the Church, while it encourages progress of both positive and speculative theology and hopes for its grand renewal in conformity to the principles and wishes expressed by the Second Vatican Council (cf. Decree Optatam Totius, Nov. 14, 16), at the same time demands that such development be homogeneous. That means that such develop- ment should be true and authen- tic, so that the ideological and imaginative increase in adaplingto the minds of men the theoretical and practical truths contained in the living and inexhaustible pat- rimony of Divine Revelation may not dissolve into loss or into obfuscation and alteration of those truths which always, everywhere and by everyone were professed, with greater or less awareness." Theologians cannot hope to make the truths of the Faith readily ac- cessible to the modern mind, the letter asserted, yet they must be Warren Baldwin, Jr. * AUTOMOBILE * FIRE * BONDS * HOME OWNERS The Insurance Agency That Serves Your Interest First Mark Williamson * LIFE Allan E.

Miss Lillian Summers and Miss Mary Raley will serve as co- chairmen of the Mount St. Mary Alumnae Association which will have charge of the hospitality com- mittee next Sunday. They will be assisted by Mrs. Robert Peters, Miss Catherine Boever, Miss Elizabeth Prieur, Miss Frances Hart and Miss Elsie Jansen. convinced that even analogical expressions of the mysteries of God's life and of eternal salva- lion have "the value of objec- tivity." Summing that up, the letter said: "Humility and magnanimity, faith in the transcendence of the Divine Word and trust in human language, are thus the endow- ments that must sustain whoever girds himself to investigate, in order then to propose to others by word of mouth and by writing, the truths of the Christian re- llgion." Here Cardinal Cicognani quo- ted St. Augustine's comments on the Gospel of St. John: "I dare to say, my brothers, that probably not even John told things the way they are, but the way he could, because he spoke of God as a man spoke; and even though inspired by God, yet he spoke as a man nonetheless. Because in- spired, he said something; if he had not been inspired, he would have said nothing. But because he was an inspired man, he spoke not everything that is but spoke what he could as a man." (in Joann. Evang. C. I, Tract. 1) Although the theologian does not benefit from inspiration, the letter proceeded, he has "the necessary means to carry out worthily the mission entrusted to him by the sacred hierarchy." First is the trust in the capacity of human reason to reach absolute truth even beyond the natural or- der, the letter said, adding that such trust is necessary "to avoid the shoals of nominalism and of presumption." The second means is"charisms granted to those who expose di- vine words, with regard to the var- ious needs of the hearers." Such eharisms must be prayed for, the letter declared. The third means is "faith in the charism of truth." The letter closed with a cita- tion from the message of Pope Paul to the international Congress of the Theology of Vatican II, Oct. 1, 1966: "Let them, there- fore, avoid yielding to the desire for facile acceptance andpopular- ity, at the expense of the sureness of doctrine taught by the magis- terium, which in the Church rep- resents the person of Jesus Christ the Teacher.
