CCUA-NCWU Declaration Warns of Growing Satanism (Following is one of severalDeclarationsof Principles adopted during the 1974 joint convention of the Catholic Union of America and the National Catholic Women's Union). angels. The general attitude of much of mankind is a fluctuation of total disbelief of the devils to an unwholesome emphasis on them. In addition from time to time there have been devil worshippers, or Satanists. The popularity of the film 'The Exorcist' is an example of the fascination today with the Devil. It comes at a time, especially when many young people are throwing over the traditional norms of Christian morality and seeking new ex- periences in the occult. In a foolhardy fashion, just as many The Catholic Church teaches that God created the angels. He allowed them the choice of their destiny having bestowed on them the marvelous gift of freedom. The acceptance of His Divine Will would bring them eternal happiness; the rejec- tion, eternal punishment. The angels, who freely submitted. their wills to the Will of God, passed their trial successfully and were rewarded with eternal happiness; the angels, who followed the lead of Lucifer, or Satan, in his revolt 'I will not serve', are damned in Hell for all eternity as devils, or fallen 'Unions' Principles Cover Wide Range St. Louis -- The Catholic CCUA and the 58th of the CWU, Central Union of America and the National Catholic Women's Union have adopted a joint Declaration of Principles, calling for reviving devotion to the Sacred Heart, supporting a pro-life Amendment to the Constitution, deploring abor- tion, contraception, and satanism, advocating an in- stitute for Christian leadership training and the promotion of fraternal insurance. - The Declaration on satanism is published herewith, and other segments of the "principles" will appear in coming weeks.

Theme of the joint convention was Pope Paul VI's call last November "to construct a new world more human and just, more aware of society's real needs, according to the Gospel's holy instructions. Christianity cannot be lived in any old way; either it is lived fully or it is betrayed." His Excellency Bishop Albert L.

Chi lean Churchmen Plead for Amnesty Santiago, Chile (NC) -- Catholic, Protestant and Jewish leaders have appealed to Chile's military government for am- nesty for political prisoners, a lifting of the "state of internal war " and a review by civilian courts of the sentences imposed by military courts. Their appeal came almost a year after the overthrow of Marxist President Salvador Allende, Sept. 11, 1973. In a letter to Gen.

In spite of half- hearted denials, Satanism is both a denial and a hatred of God. The most hideous and sacrilegious form of Satan worship is the so-called 'Black Mass', a parody on the true Mass, in which the Satan worshippers abuse the Body of Christ in the Holy Eucharist This is why our priests and people must be on constant alert to protect the tabernacle in the Church.
