PAGE TWO iiii i i St. Justin Society. The naming of six native Chinese Bishops by Pope Pius XI, on October 28, 1926, "proclaimed the maturity of Chinese Christianity and turned a new page in the religious his- tory of my country," Father Tien said, but the Chinese Church is still quite young anC "needs the help of its elders." And the na- tive Bishops, he added, are more in need of aid than other mis- sionaries because the number of their flock is usually smaller and, therefore, the resources of the Vic- ariate more limited; although his resources are more meager, the demands are greater while Europ- ean and American missionaries get help from their respective coun- tries, he must depend solely upon his own resources and what aid he receives from the Propagation of the Faith. To these three nor- mal difficulties has been added the ReD. Anthony Tien States Chinese Catholics, Need Help (By N.C.W.C. News Service) Frihourg.--Catholicism has not yet touched the intellect- ual world of China and that explains why, after more than three centuries of evangelization, the Church in China still remains in the missionary category and intellectually anal economically dependent, the ReD. Anthony Tien said in an address here be- fore the Academic Association for the Missions. Father Tien is a guest in Switzerland of the ' destruction resulting from war- fare; but to offset financial losses, the Bishops may derive comfort from the fact that "the hour of trial and misery has become the hour of grace and God; conver- sions in China were never as numerous as during the last six years; and in 1942, more than 100,000 baptisms were recorded." Seek Economic Independence From the beginning of their episcopate, Father Tien said, the native Chinese Bishops have striv- en to realize economic independ- ence through every legitimate means, and have sought the moral assistance and, cooperation of the civil authority. Following the col- lective appeal of the Chinese Bish- ops to the Central Government in 1934, the President of the Chinese Republic replied: "We are assured that relations between the Chin- ese Government and people on one hand, and the Holy See, on the other, will make greater progress."

Next in importance, Father Tien plac- ed the intellectual develop- ment of clergy and laity for "it is impossible to elevate the religious level of the population unless the cultural level is elevated at the same time." The result of the alms-giving method, he said', has been that "after more than three centuries of evangelization, Ca- tholicism in China--although it has won over some 3,000,000 faith- HOTEL BROADWAY B.

Phone 2910 HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS ful, a colossal figure in itself but insignificant beside the 450,000,000 inhabitants--has not yet touched the Chinese nation," for the reason that "Catholicism has not yet touched the intellectual world of China." About all that 300,000,000 Chinese know about Catholicism is its name, he added, "and even its name is often cop-fused with that of Protestantism"; still an- other 100,000,000 have a vague !notion about Catholicism; and of ]the 3,000,000 converts, about eight-tenths are peasants. Must Overcome Obstacles The aptitudes and qualities re- quired for a good missionary are numerous, Father Tien pointed out: "He must have virtue of a supernational, moral and physical order -- qualities of mind, heart and will; but the specifically mis- sionary quality is none other than the device of St. Paul: 'I be- came all things to all men.' To attain this ideal, love is evidently essential; but there cannot be true love without knowledge. To love it is essential to know. Therefore EASTER Phones 802-803 GLOBE DRUG CO.
