THE GUARDIAN, DECEMBER 5, 1969 PAGE 7 Lauds Cursillistas for Apostolicity City (NC) -- The in- and collective efforts of laymen are greatly need- the Church these days, Paul VI told pilgrims and gathered in St. Peter's Paul began his remarks notice of the presence pilgrimages, including 0f the Cursillos de Cristi- an apostolic movement to leaders. Pope was happy to greet first and "happy to have join now in our prayers very many needs of the of society and of the He added: "We know with good spirit they are ani- how much good they have been able to carry out silently." This observation, he said, leads him to think in general "of that reawakening of the Christian con- science, of that religious and ef- fective activity, of that calm and strong witness to the name Cath- olic which can be born spontan- eously and with order within the breast of the laity itself and which can truly comfort the Church, tormented by many adversities and more than ever obligated to pour forth its charisms and to place its services at the use of the modern world." The Pope then continued to de- velop his theme on the need for an active laity. "Yes, beloved sons," he said,"itis from your own ranks that must arise that individual and collective affirma- tion of spiritual and moral forces of which our times have such need and for which often the qualified ministry of the official Church is not sufficient. "From each and everyone there can come valid help for the cause of Christ, that is, for the truth of His revelation, of His divine message, in our history of mortal men and for the marvelous design of salvation which the Gospel work- ing in the Church offers to us. This is the vocation which the council has reawakened in the people of God, in the faithful laity, for the pastors especially; and now today we reawaken again this vocation, we encourage it, we bless it, invoking upon those who gen- erously hear it and follow it, upon them we invoke the sweet and strong assistance of Our Lady." ts Find What It's Like to Be Poor Ohio (NC) -- Thou- of persons spend endless of depression in the inner- because of poverty and their to overcome it. is no relief for them, not t from Catholic charitable or- situation is sometimes dif- for the affluent to under- Sometimes all they know : the inner-cities is what they textbooks. only way to really know how to be poor and homeless it. And this is priests as part of a project for the Internship Program at Case Reserve University. They put on work clothes and took to the streets to find out whether they could survive. For a week they were, in their own words, "penniless, powerless, and nameless." Msgr. P. Breen Malone, pastor of St. Patrick's church here and impostor among the poor, was one of those to live the poor life in Cleveland. After sampling Cleveland' s bleak inner-city life, he emerged depressed at what he found, and determined to make affluent per- sons more sensitive to "our suf- fering brothers." The 46-year-old priest ate bo- logna and crackers on Cleveland's Public Square, worked in a fac- tory all night, slept in a third- rate hotel, and sat on innumer- able bar stools to talk with lone- ly men. In his contacts with the poor, who exhibited "a fantastic sense of sharing and concern," Msgr. Malone found God. But in his brushes with church-related agen- cies set up to help the poor, he said he found rejection. After failing to obtain some decent clothing from the St. Vin- cent de Paul Society, the priest asked a clerk: "Is there any Catholic insti- tution in Cleveland that can take care of me?" The clerk replied, "No, I don't think there is." Fort Smith Church Guide CONCEPTION, of Garrison Avenue. Sunday s, 7:00, 8:30, 10:30 A.M. on and 6:00 P.M. Holyday 6:00 and 8:00 A.M. 12:05 P.M.

(NC) -- Min- nesota's fair bus law is con- stitutional, according to a de- cision handed down by District Court Judge David E. Marsden here. The court dismissed arguments that the law violates the state and federal Constitutions and held that the law, passed during the last session o the state legislature, is fully within the scope of both Constitutions and is a lawful en- actment of the legislature. The 24-page decision held that the purpose of the law as enacted was to protect the health, wel- fare, and safety of school children by providing equal bus trans- portation for both public and non-public school students and that any aid accruing to religious institutions was only incidental. a wildfire is ILLEGAL00 no matter how it staffs.
