Both documents are concerned with the pastoral care of "mi- grants," but it is clear that this term applies not only to people who leave their countries for economic or social reasons on a permanent basis, but also those who migrate even on a part-time basis, such as various workers within Europe, or Latin Americans who move to the United States to find income to support families left behind. The first of these documents is a motu proprio (a document written by the Pope himself) en- titled "Pastoralis Migratorum." The second is an instruction im- plementing the Pope's document issued by the Office of Migration, which is part of the Vatican's Congregation for Bishops. The motu proprio is basically an extension of Pope Plus XII's document "Exul Familia," con- firming the need for a special apostolate to all those who, for one reason or another, are re- quired to leave their native lands to seek a home or at least work in a foreign land. The accompanying instruction notes that the term "migrants" no longer is restricted to those who have changed their lives for economic or political rea- sons, but also includes temporary workers or even seasonal work- ers who are required to move from one country to another for reasons of work. The Pope's motu proprio is ............................... 0 fficial Announcement Diocese of Little Rock 2500 N.

Hinckley Memorial Burse, honoring the late pastor of St. Patrick's parish, North Little Rock, is one of two new burses established in the Dio- cese of Little Rock to help finan- ce the education of Arkansas men studying for the Holy Priesthood. A complete $5,000 burse in honor of St. Leonhard and in memory of Leo and Evelyn Van Gels of Little Rock was announ- ced by His Excellency Bishop Albert L. Fletcher. The bequest for the burse was received under terms of the will of Mr. Van Gels.

Adrian Mr. Ccrcmtles concerned with implementing not only the teaching of Plus XlI but also that of the Second Vat- ican Council. It aims at es- tablishing the basis for pastoral care for all forms of migrant work- ers. The papal note also for- mally sanctions the transfer of responsibility for many of the var- ious apostolates to national bis- hops' conferences, a practice that has already been in use for many years but which, up until now, has nominally been specifi- cally within the competence of the Vatican Congregation for Bis- hops. The accompanying instruction noted that the Pope's document calls for three fundamental prin- ciples: 1) -- Respect for the spiritual and cultural inheritance of the re!grant. This includes especially his language, his means of ex- pression, mentality and religious life; 2) -- The unity and legitimate diversity of various ethnic groups so that variety and difference will not be at odds with the es- sential community of the ecclesial community; 3) -- The cooperation of all the people of God, so that the enor- mity of the problems facing all of them can be understood and taken into account not only by dio- ceses and parishes but also by religious groups of men and women and the laity. The instruction is aimed, ashas been the general thrust of the work of the migration office, to the European problems of mi- gratory labor and, without speci- fication, especially to the Italian problem caused by the great movement of Italian laborers out- side of Italy .throughout Europe. However, the migration office over the years has been dealing with a wide variety of special ethnic, linguistic, and national problems throughout the world. It has had to supply chaplains forAmericans in the Middle East, for Italians in Latin American countries and for Spanish people working in Switzerland. According to the instruction, the extension of the concept of a person who has moved perman- ently to a new country to build a new life but who still for var- ious reasons needs religious assistance from priests and oth- ers of his own group, there have been now added other categories: workers "guests" within Europe's Common Market, specialists of a number of technological and scientific groups, volunteers in relief and assistance programs SEE MIGRANTS ON PAGE 2 The Sentry Says: How Can We Feed Dogs and Not People?
