Action Program to Fight Povert[i Outlined for Canada After Studg Ottawa (NC) -- Recognizing that erty which challenged governments tegy in the next decade are: and the churches to give top prior- ity to the war against poverty. It proposes four broad guidelines for a united strategy in the 1970s and seven first steps to be taken during 1969. Guidelines for a unified stra- "action is the language expected of Christians" and "much more is possible," a strategy report is- sued here challenges Canadian Christians "to risk becoming a 'poor church' -- or at least one more in keeping with the life style of the Servant Lord" in an effort to overcome poverty. Commitment of resources to development is listed as one of the "essential first steps" in the bat- tle against world poverty. The report calls for church congrega- tions to give three to five per cent of their revenues to development projects. The report, "Towards a Coali- tion forDevelopment," wasissued by the Interchurch Strategy Com- mittee, and was presented to rep- resentatives of the Canadian Cath- olic Conference and the Canadian Council of Churches. It also is directed to "all concerned Cana- dians." It was issued to coin- cide with the first anniversary of the national conference in Montreal on Christian Conscience and Pay- I Latin Is International Language in 5weden Stockholm, Sweden (NC) -- Be- cause of language difficulties, Catholics of various nationalities residing in Sweden have found Latin to be a language they can use for ordinary communication among themselves. Italians, Croats, PolesandGer- roans all know some Latin from the Mass liturgy and can use simple phrases to facilitate contacts as long as they are unable to master Swedish. Their Catholic pastor here also uses Latin for ordi- nary conversation and appears to be getting along well with it.

It calls on Christians to "take stock of existing manpower, revenues, in- vestments, and buildings in the light of human needs" and to "ex- amine consciences." A problem to be solved, it suggests, are what changes in priorities are required. --Commit more resources to development, a "ministry of shar- ing." A de-emphasis of new build- ing and a greater emphasis of community uses of existing pro- perties are suggested in this guide- line. It also ask more financial resources be committed to pov- erty programs. It suggests chur- ches provide "seed money" for lower-income housing. --Animate people, the "ministry of hope." The report says prior- ity should be given to the education of Christians' social conscience, at all ages. It asks for support of social animation programs to re- lease "people power." --Initiate political action, or the "ministry of justice." The report calls for assistance to the deprived and minority groups in their ef- forts to organize. It urges sup- port of "research into the 'human consequences' of public policies in such fields as science, defense, education and family life." Priorities for 1969, which the report lists as "essential first steps," include the actual commitment of resources to devel- opment. Minimum possibilities listed in the report are: --Earmark at least three to five per cent of 1970 congregational revenues for development. --"Adopt a form of voluntary assessment in lieu ofpropertytax- ation, or delay completion of new church buildings. Invest these funds in development of people." --An interchurch campalgndur- ing Lent, 1970, to support self- help projects overseas. --A review of resources and a questioning of consciences at var- ious institutes dealing with thepov- erty problem. The report also calls for de- cisive responses to the report "at all levels." Itaskschurchor- ganizations, departments and agencies to integrate their prog- rams within the united stra- tegy. It calls upon Christians in public groups to start or support new initiatives in human develop- ment. Church leaders are asked by the report to "begin to set up a Coa- lition of Canadians for Develop- ment (CCD) to coordinate and service the unified strategy. If and when required, establish equivalent bodies at regional- community levels. "Poverty," the report says; "is the sum total of human needs and hungers. In this broad sense all of us are poor. The majority of mankind is denied even the basic necessities of existence. Under present priorities, arms before aid and money-power before peo- ple's needs spellpoverty for most. oooa Aop0000- WIEDERKEHR ro,.g00t WIEDERKEHR WINE CELLARS, INC.

The report's guidelines with "essential first steps" in fighting poverty will serve as a frame of reference for other nations to follow, Msgr. Marvin Bordelon said in an interview with HC Hews Service. He said he agrees with the authors of the Canadian report that their proposals are possible and realistic. Msgr. Bordelonalso believes the proposals are "gutsy." He is especially enthused with what he calls the "theological con- text" of the strategy report. This context, Msgr. Bordelon saM, is found in the report's reference to the rubric of ministry. Plans for the next decade, ac- cording to the report, must center on the ministriesofpenance, shar- ing, hope, and justice.
