What Catholics Believe'

SIR' In criticising the C.T.S.

pamphlet " What Catholics Believe " Mr. Bergonzi has put his finger on an inaccuracy which the Catholic Truth Society might well correct.

But surely Mr. Bergonzi has missed the point of the statement, which is that any theory of evolution which suggests that we with our immortal souls are descended from some sub-human creature is necessarily opposed to Catholic teaching. Whether this sub-human creature is supposed to be an ape or the ape's ancestor is surely irrelevant.

A popular pamphlet is necessarily couched in popular language. hut I feel sure that the Catholic Truth Society would welcome a direct suggestion from your correspondent as to how the offending paragraph should be re-worded so as still to be popular without offending the susceptibilities of the pedantic.
