PAGE 12 THE GUARDIAN, SEPTEMBER 26, 1969 Pontiff's Sufferings Held Price of Being 'Epiphanic Pope' Rochester, N. Y. (NC) -- Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, whohas described Pope Paul VI as the Epiphanic Pope, pointed out that holding such a title bears a price of suf- fering. "As the Apostle Paul was ac- cused of causing 'havoc in Jerusa- lem,' so Pope Paul is accused of causing 'havoc inRome,' "Bis- hop Sheen wrote in an article for New Clinic Serving Women Heroin Addicts New Orleans, La. (NC) -- Beth- lehem-House of Bread, an inter- racial interdemoninational opera- tion here staffed by Dominican Sisters, has opened a metha- don clinic for women heroin addicts of the city. Methadone is a non-euphoric morphine derivative which blocks the effects of heroin. Administ- ered in stabilized doses, under medical supervision, methadone allows the former addict to be- come a productive citizen of so- ciety. Sister Mary David, O.P., direc- tor of the House of Bread which was formed to aid needy women and children, said "There are at least 500 female heroin addicts that we know of in New Orleans," Sister David said, "and probably more. But we plan to reach be- yong the addict with out treat- ment. We hope to make visits to their homes -- only if invi- ted -- to be sure the family has adequate housing, clothing, and food." 10 GLR Schools In Volleyball League Te n Catholic schools of Greater Little Rock will compete this Fall in the expanded paro- chlal volleyball league.

What brought up hatred against Paul, he said, was the letter, Hu- manae Vitae, "proclaiming the continuity of love and life." Throughout history, Bishop Sheen explained, the authority of both the pope and the Church was challenged on high doctrinal matters such as the divinity of Christ, the union of His Godhead and human nature, and the Trin- ity. "But in this 20th century," Bis- hop Sheen wrote, "the attack comes not from the speculative intellect, but from morals and the area of sex." "In these days when geneticists and others recommend birth out- side the mother's womb, it is indeed interesting that the greai- est defender of sex is a celibate Pope," he said. Describing what he calls a "betrayal from within," Bishop Sheen said "Our Lord's view was that if an enemy had betrayed Him, He could have borne it. What makes it hard for Pope Paul is that He is betrayed by those who break bread with Him." All agonies of the Church register in its visible head, Pope Paul, according to Bishop Sheen. Pope Paul, he said, "must be tormented more, because as the Epiphanic Pope, he brings to an end the Time of Nations; he inaugurates a new era in whose remote future is the coming of Christ in the glorious Epiphany." Bishop Sheen emphasized that "he who has a mission to man- kind for good, suffers. He who has no mission, talks." The Pope, "in completing the promise of the Lord that all na- tions must hear the Gospel, must also feel the nails and thorns and bitter scorns," Bishop Sheen wrote. But "there is joy in the midst of all this suffering," the prelate said. Pope Paul, he pointed out, once remarked that "he had an indescribable joy in being per- mitted to suffer for the Church.'" The tragedy, Bishop Sheen con- tinued, "is not that he must suf- fer so much, for one cannot be the Vicar of Christ without being scarred by Christ; rather the tra- gedy is that those who are loyal to him are silent." Methodi st-Catho I ic Talks Continuing Valletta, Malta (NC)-- The third in a series of Catholic-Meth- odist meetings was held here to dis- cuss the ministry and the opportun- ities for both churches to join in solving the problems and challen- ges facing present-day Chris- tianity. A Catholic delegate at the meet- ing, Father William D. Purdy of the Vatican Secretariat for Pro- moting Christian Unity, said that the wave of secularism sweeping the world constitutes the main challenge in the life of the peo- ple and the churches. The meetings between represen- tatives of the Catholic Church and the Methodist World Councllbegan in 1967. This year, 10 delegates from each church attended.
