"For more than three-quarters of a century those Marxian prin- ciples have become the handbook of communistic training which would strike at the roots of the Christian doctrine. Hence the ap- peal made by the Holy See for prayerful intercession in behalf of the timely training of Catholic leaders in mission countries."

The Vic- ariate Apostolic of Anking, in which the Mexican missions are located, has a population of 7,- 000,000 inhabitants of whom only 26,000 are Catholics. Face Difficult Situation "The situation of the Church in China is extremely difficult," Father Chavcz said. "Means of subsistence have been cut off-- interiorly because cultivation of the land is under control of the occupation troops, and exteriorly because little or no aid is ar- riving. The few foreign mis- sionaries who have remained in the invaded zones have had their activities summarily restricted and are virtually prisoners. Many have died trying to go to the aid of the dying in prohibited zones. Schools and dispensaries lack food and medicines, and the ma- jority of them have been closed. The native clergy finds itself in extreme penury and in a situa- tion which is aggravated by the fact of Chinese citizenship."

Colored pictures of the miracu- lous image were sent to China from the National Basilica in Mexico and some 20,000 have been distributed. The Chinese seemed to be enamored by the swarthy appearance of the Vir- gin and the bright colors of her robes; some of them, still pagans who have never given the slight- est indication of conversion, Fath- er Chavez said, treasure this image of the Mother of God and weserve it with reverence in their PAGE SEVEN Subiaco Faculty Attend Mass Of Crusaders of Sacred Heart I Fr.
