The Benedictine Monastery at Subiaco, where a retreat for men was held last weekend, will conduct its final retreat for men there the weekend of August 10-12. Monsignor O'Connell believes that once a year Catholics should retreat from the worldly distractions of work and recrea- tion and devote one weekend to taking spiritual inventory of themselves. And hundreds of Arkansas Catholics have been gathering at the seminary every summer since the early 1930's when the retreat movement was begun by the late Bishop John See RETREATS on Page 3 The Sentry Says: here Is No Substitute for the Good Home Where Christ, His Mother and the Saints Occupy Promhmnt Positions.

Vatican Council Expected to Consider Use of Vernacular in Holy Sacrifice Chicago, (NC)The prefect of the Sacred Congregation of Rites predicted here that the October ecumenical council will consider whether vernacular should be used in parts of the Mass. Arcadio Cardinal Larraona, C.M.F., an administrative official of the Holy See for more than 20 years, made the prediction in a press conference. The Cardinal, a member of the central, preparatory com- mission for the Second Vatican Council which convenes on Oc- tober 11, expressed his belief that there may be a majority of delegates who may favor the use of modern languages in portions of the Mass. The Cardinal, a member of the Claretian order, said that there are signs of considerable support for the use of modern languages. The council, he said, may take cognizance of the fact that lay- men are participating ever more in the responses of the Mass in Latin and thus would recognize the feasibility of eventually using the venacular. Cardinal Larraona was in Chicago for the 30th anniver- sary of the police branch of the St. Jude's League, an organiza- tion sponsored by the Claretian Fathers. The league assists young men studying for the priesthood. He celebrated a Pontifical Mass in St. Peters' church in downtown Chicago and then re- viewed an outdoor parade of more than 2,500 Chicago police- men. Cardinal Larraona said that it is possible permission may be granted for the use of the vernacular in some portions of the Mass, chiefly in the first part known as the "Mass of the "Catechumens." He pointed to signs of consid- erable support for vernacular, but cautioned that "a unity of expression" should be maintain- ed for that part of the Mass which is a profession of faith, the canon. He emphasized the difficul- ties of maintaining accuracy in translations into dozens of lan- guages and said that rather than break the line of tradition, the faithful should be given more instruction in tim mean- ing of the language of the Conway Man Ordained', 1st SolenJn Mass Slated Rev. Joseph A. Seiter, C.S.Sp. Pontifical Mass Set'for Pentecost The Feast of Pentecost, the "birthday" of the Catholic church, will be celebrated next Sunday, June 10, and Hm Excellency Bishop Albert L. Fletcher will offer a Solemn. Pontifical Moss in St. Andrew's Cathedral, Little Rock. The Mass, scheduled for 9:30 A.M., will commemorate the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles, following Christ's Ascension into Heaven. Fourth Degree Knights of Co- lumbus will provide an honor See PENTECOST on Page 3 Conway--The Rev. Joseph A. Seiter, C.S.Sp., son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Seiter of Roue 4, Conway, who was ordained last Wednesday in Norwalk, Conn., will sing his first Solemn Mass in St. Joseph's Church here next Sunday, June 10th, at 9:45 A.M. Assisting Father Seiter at the altar will be: The Roy. Sylves- tcr F. Dellert, C.S.Sp.. pastor of St. Joseph's, as Archpriest; The Rev. Amos H. Enderlin, Dea- con; and The Rev. Mr. Vincent Stegman, C.S.Sp., Subdeacon. The Rev. Anttmny Lachowsky, C.S.Sp., will deliver the sermon. Father Seiter attended St. Jo- seph's Parochial School before entering Itoly Ghost Missionary Seminary, Cornwells Heights, Pa., in 1950. He made his first vows in the Holy Ghost Order in 1956, and was ordained at St. Mary's Seminary, Norwalk, Conn., by His Excellency Bishop Walter W. Curtis of Bridgeport on June 6. As a ltoly Ghost Father, Fath- er Seiter is a member of a world-wide Catholic missionary order numbering over 5,000 members. Holy Ghost Fathers work in missions in Africa, where 20 tl.oly Ghost Fathers were slain in the Congo last New Year's Day, and in par- ishes, missions, and educational works here in the . United States. After a short vacation at home with his family, Father Seiter will return to St. Mary's Seminary in Norwalk to com- plete missionary training, after which he will be assigned to one of the Holy Ghost missions. Father Seiter has four sisters See ORDINATION on Page 3 canon. There also is a possibility, 'R ligio F[ i ar Not Real however, he added, that the e [,$ lV V p "movement for primitivism" among Church liturgy scholars may see the removal of "ap- pendages" introduced into the Mass in its later stages of de- velopment. H said he does not believe the Mass will be ex- panded. - 'Put Up or Shut Up,' Interracialists Told Worcester, Mass., ) -- The arrival of impoverished south- ern Negroes on "Freedom Rides" to the North is a chal- lenge to northerners to "put up or shut up" on their commit- merit to racial justice, a Cath- olic newspaper said here. "If we do not now try to help some of those people who are not wanted in Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas or any- where else, our words have been meaningless," the Cath- olic Free Press, newspaper of the Worcester diocese, said. "The penniless people who have come North on a one-way bus ticket are just as much refugees as any who ever fled China, Hungary or Cuba," the Free Press said. Bishop Tracy Tells U.A.
