Java Mission Raised To Vicariate Hastings, Nebr. 0}.--One hun- dred and seventy Catholic priests, Brothers and Sisters were sta- tioned in the Vicariate of Ban- doeng, Java, the Crosier Fathers of Immaculate Conception Monas- tery here report on the basis of 1939 statistics on the Mission of the Crosier Fathers in Java. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. James H. Goumans, O. S. C., recently was named Vicar Apostolic of Ban- doeng, Java, according to word received here. A native of Venray, Holland, he went to Java as Su- perior of the Mission there in 1926. Bandoeng was set up as a Pre- fecture Apostolic in 1932, and Monsignor Goumans was named its first Prefect. Because of the rapid growth of the Mission and the increase in the number of missionaries working under Mon- signor Goumans, Bandoeng was raised to the status of a Vicariate Apostolic last month and Monsig- nor Goumans was named Vicar Apostolic, the Crosier Fathers state. The Catholic population of the Vicariate in 1939 was 17,917, of whom 1,723 were natives and 16,- 924 were Europeans. There were 147 persons under instruction at the time. Forty-seven Catholic grade schools were attended by 2,- 485 boys and 1,927 girls. There were eight regular mission posts on the island. The report of the Crosier Fathers stated that there were 815 baptisms, 276,182 Holy Communions and 189 marriages last year. Nuns Open Sanitarium. Dyer, Ind.

The distinction be- tween them was clear: On the one side was Patrick, the apostle of the true God Whose loving mercy makes a bright and shining path in a world of-darkness; on the other side was the druid priest, the follower of a false faith which had made a world of shadowy fears and uncertainty for men. As it will always be so, so it was then: with the help of Almighty God St. Patrick triumphed. The knowledge of the Irish peo- ple acquired by Patrick when he acted as slave shepherd stood him in .ood stead during the meeting and the fire of faith he lighted has burned brightly during the succeeding 15 centuries. He light- ed the brand of mission activity which has been spread by Irish Catholics throughout the world and is hailed today as ofie of the great missioners of the Church. Heart-to-heart talks with our Lord about the trials, the worries, the troubles and anxieties of our day will do much to obtain for us the refreshment promised by Christ when He said: "Come to Me all you who labor and are burdened and I shall refresh you." Consolation shall sometimes be given to you; but to be fully sat- isfied shall not be granted to you. , i i i i ii say It With... -,FLOWERS FROM [ THE GUARDIAN, MARCH 13, 1942 PAGE THREE U. S.

(EL--Twenty years of re-education will be required to clear up the lies and prejudices inculcated into German youth by Nazi and Prussianism, an audience of 500 was told here by Dr. F. W. Foerster, non-Catholic German ex- ile, educator and author. Dr. Foerster spoke at Catholic Central Auditorium here in the 13th lecture of the current Chris- rain Culture Series under the aus- pices of the Assumption College Lecture League, Windsor, Ont. Nazism did not begin recently, Dr. Foerster said, but is the flow- ering of an' intellectual and moral disease with roots far back in history. There has been a good German;, and many heroic and splendid Germans, he said, but as a group they have not been ex- pressive enough in opposing the poison in their midst and have therefore become usable in the de- signs of evil men.

The latest word from the Sisters in the Philippines was a cable dated December 28 informing Mother Mary Hildegard of Jesus, : United Provincial here, that all were well. There are ten Ameri- can Sisters among the 120 Francis- can Missionaries of "Mary in ten convents in the Philippines. Two of the convents are in Manila.
