NOVEMBER, 1949 THE JEFFERSONIAN PAGE THREE KS™! Purgatory Believed by Martyrs RIGHT, SAYS PRELATE New Orleans— "Certain forms of segregation may be justified, tout frankly we can see no neces- sity for the ruling when there is a question of purely religious ob servanee," This statement was made here toy Archbishop Rurnmei following cancellation by the prelate of the annual lloly Hour observance af- ter city park authorities had in- sisted that adorers of the Blessed Sacrament be segregated as soon as the procession of our Euchar- jstic Lord had entered the stad- ium. Negro Catholics walking in the procession, said the Archbishop, evidenced the "universality of our Church," and he refused to allow any Holy Hour of prayer in ■which these children of the Church could not participate as members of the mystical Body of Christ. The Archbishop's action was based on Catholic doctrine that, whereas social equality was not intended by our Maker iWho ob- viously created us unequal in race, int...

Rather her critics took the only avenue of escape -agnosticism, i.e. it can't be known, no facts of history in encyclopedias are cer- tain, the Pope must have had a hand in Britannica, etc. Substantiating Mrs. Calvert's view from history and the Bible, two other forum writers com- mented on the objectivity of Pet- or'fc position as the first Pope.

This comment was made her# t y a Baptist preacher, Rev. L. Louis Aber, to his congregation ui'ou his return from a 3 day re- treat at a neat'by Roman Catholic Trappist monastery. The minister, undecided about accepting a new post, went to one of the Roman Catholic Church's strictest monasteries to pray over thi? matter.

Noting this, James W. Rushing in a pre-Christltngg letter to the Dailas News, expressed his mind openly on the matter. He felt no compulsion whatsoever, he said, to celebrate a "Roman Cath- t>Hc festival." As far as he was concerned, he said, Dec. 25th is not the birthday of Jesug Christ. Actually the exact date of the Savior's brth i's not known. But the date is not' so important as the fact that He 'was iborn.
