VATICAN BROADCAST How Catholics Act in France

From a Correspondent A series of talks is being broadcast by the Vatican Radio Station on the Church in France.

The first talk of the series, on the principles and organisation of Catholic Action in France. was prepared especially by the Director-General of Catholic Action in France.

He said that modern Catholic Action began at the end of the war when the ranks of the clergy were depleted and an anti-clerical government wished to exile the survivors.

It was realised that to gain France to Christ it was no longer sufficient to capture the intellectual elite. Leaders must be trained from all social classes.

The plan of campaign, inspired by Marshal Foch, is not to " defend the

Faith," but to attack. The Church in France had been too much on the defensive.

Catholic Action is organised by the Bishops, who meet each year to draw up a " One Year Plan." They are guided by a committee of specialists and scholars.
