In his appeal, Bishop Fletcher cited a recent letter addressed to all membesof the American hier- archy by Pope Paul. It reads: To Our Venerable Brothers To Archbishops and Bishops of the United States of America, As Vicar on earth of Him Who "went about doing good" (Acts X. 38) and taught that as we do to one of the least of these His breth- ren, we do it to Him (cf. Mr. XXV.40), We consider the aid and relief of the hungry, thirsty, strangers, naked, sick and in prison to be a most lmportantlart of Our supreme Apostolate. We and Our Predecessors have always needed generous collabora- tion in this immense undertaking, and have ever found willing assis- tance on the part of numerous char- itable souls who have entrusted to the Successor of Peter the fruits of their self-sacrifice; and thus "distribution was made to each as any had need" (Acts IV. 35).

As you now prepare to give yourselves, and to ask your Cath- olic people to give as liberally as possible to the annual collection, which is made throughout the Uni- ted States on "Laetare" Sunday, We hasten first of all to assure you and them of Our heartfelt gratitude for your magnificent cooperation in the past, which has sustained a world-wide organiza- tion of charitable and merciful ac- tivities sponsored by the HolySee. Then, We requestyourunselfish aid, your open-hearted and open- handed donations toward the unfor- tunate victims of war, of oppres- sion, of disease, of poverty and of numerous natural disasters all over the face of the earth. As We make Our appeal, the words of the Apostle Paul come to mind: "The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows boun- tifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver... You will be en- riched in every way for great gen- erosity, which through us will pro- duce thanksgiving to God; for the rendering of this service not only supplies the wants of the saints but also overflows in many thanks- givings to God" (II Car. IX. 6-12). The armed conflicts which have continued during the past year have been augmented by natural disasters and accidents, which have deprived multitudes of their homes, clothing, food and medi- [I Cu rs i l Io Conducted In Federal Prison Kingston, Ont. (NC) -- For the first time in Canadian history, a Cursillo was conducted within the walls of a federal prison by 20 members of the Cursillo move- ment, a "short course in Chris- tianity." Warden J. H. Meers of CollIns Bay Penitentiary here said he was very impressed with its effects on the 28 Catholic inmates who par- ticipated. Meers added he will sug- gest, "in my report," that the Cursillo be considered by all prison wardens across the nation.
