PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 7, 1969 Cardinal Mindszenty Is Visited Again Vienna (NC) -- Franziskus Car- dinal Koenig of Vienna has paid another visit to Jozsef Cardinal Mindszenty of Esztergom, who has been living in the U.S. embassy in Budapest for the past 12 years. Kathpress, the Austrian Catho- lic news agency, said Cardinal Koenig's visit to the Hungarian cardinal, who has resided in the embassy since the unsuccessful 1956 Hungarian uprising freed him from jail for a few days, was plknned before Christmas. The visit is one of several the Austrian cardinal has made to Cardinal Mindszenty since he fled to the U.S. embassy. The new agency said that no change in the situation of the Hungarian cardinal was expected in connection with Cardinal Koenig's visit. .Drs.

A prelim- inary period of varying duration, obligatory in certain Institutes under the name of postulancy, usually precedes admission to the novitiate." "During this probationary per- iod," the Instruction continues, "it is particularly necessary to secure assurance that the can- didate for religious life be en- dowed with such elements of hu- man and emotional maturity as will afford grounds for hope that he is capable of uncle rtakiag properly the obligations of the religious state .... " It is added that, "if in certain more difficult cases, the superior feels, with the free agreement of the subject, that he should have recourse to the services of a prudent and qualified psychologist known for his moral principles," it is desirable that this exam- Scouts CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Keep Current READ The Guardian I I_ Charter a Busl HENRY LIENHART Any size BUs aVailable, from school bus to luxGry air con- ditioned coaches.

Regarding the period of pre- liminary probation, the Instruc- tion says it is preferable that it should not take place in the noviti- ate house. "It could even behelp- ful that, either in whole or inpart, it be organized outside a house of the institute," it adds. Other points made in the In- struction include the following: --Religious life begins with the novitiate. -- "in order to be valid, the novitiate must be made in the house legitimately designated for this purpose." --The novitiate, as described in the Instruction, "must last l2 months" to be valid. --Absences from novitiate groups or the house that total more than three months "render the novitiate invalid." --The general chapter, by a two-thirds majority vote, may"in- tegrate into the novitiate formation one or several periods involving activities in line with the charac- ter of the Institute and away from the novitiate." But, the total length of time a novice spends outside the novitiate will be added to the 12 months presence required in the novitiate. --The major superior, for just cause, may allow the first pro- fession to be anticipated, "butnot beyond 15 days." --The habit which novices and other candidates for the religious life shall wear "rests with the general chapter." Regarding temporary vows, the Instruction says in part: "The general chapter, by a two-thirds majority, may decide to replace temporary vows in the Institute with some other kind of commitment as, for example, a promise made to the Institute. "This commitment will be made at the end of the novitiate and for the duration of the probation- ary period extending to perpetual profession or to the sacred com- mitments which are its equivalent in certain Institutes. The tempor- ary commitment may also be made for a briefer period and be re- newed at stated intervals, or even be followed by making temporary VOWS. It is stipulated that, "what- ever may be the nature of this temporary commitment, its effect will be to bind whoever makes it to his congregation or his Insti- tute and it will entail the obliga- tion of observing the Rule, con- stitutions and other regulations of the Institute. The general chap- ter will determine other aspects and consequences of this com- mitment." It is stated that the general chapter shall decide the length of the period of temporary vows or commitments, but that "this period shall last for no less than three years and no more than nine." The Instruction says the facul- ties it grants to religious Insti- tutes "have been suggested by a certain number of considerations based on experience." It is pointed out that it is "increasingly difficult to formu- late any useful set of directives equally applicable to all Institutes everywhere," For this reason, it is stated," the much broader norms set forth in the Instruction give to individual Institutes the possi- bility of prudently choosing the sol- utions best suited to their needs." And, it is added, the best solu- tions cannot be "absolutely iden- tical" for institutes of men and those of women.

Mary's Purity Termed 'Marvelous Model' Vatican City (NC) -- On the Feast of the Blessed Virgin's Purification, Pope Paul VI spoke of her "regal and virginal pur- ity so singular and exemplary that it offers the world a mar- velous model. "We must defend and restore in contemporary society, which is sliding toward neo-paganism, the respect and feeling for morality which now is being subverted and outraged by the hedonistic deca- dence and permissiveness of so many manifestations of modern life," he said. 113V= MAIN LITTLE "Meet Me at The Mario00 A rkansas ' Largest Convention t Leland C.
