THE. "cross and mini powder" image of the missionary priest is dying fast, in the minds of most intelligent people It is already dead.'For those who have arty lingering doubts, this week's BBC Panorama programme on Msslion Work in Latin America elliould have re-1 moved the last remants of confusion.

Instead of seeing the Church as a "power out to conquer and impose an ideology on simple people" we saw the Church serving mankind as Christ commanded.

As one of the priests in the programme put It "We have to put hope in . the body before we can t hope in the soul".

prime work of the Catholic missioner today is not to fight CAmimunism, not to impose a foreign culture on a bockward nation, not to take advantage of people's superstitions, but to bring Christ's love to every human being.

Next Sunday -Mission , Sunday — you will be able to read in your CATHOLIC HERALD what the modem rnissioner is about. In a specisil 12-page issue you will learn from Archbishop Dwyer and other well-known figures in the Church how every modern wiente is being used to bring Chrisfs.proraise to the troubled, the under-privileged and the lost.
