Itinerary for Sunday Mass

Five Catholic Bishops waited to greet Archbishop Spellman this week when he was due to land on his Far Eastern tour on Chungking airfield. His programme of Sunday Masses over the last month has been Manila, Korea, Tokyo, Chungking and Cairo.

In Chungking he had a personal and unofficial conversation with President Chiang Kai-shek.

Apart from visiting American troops, of whom he is Military Vicar, the Archbishop was concerning himself with problems of the Far Eastern missions field,

Of Japan he said : " In the Honschu area of Japan 26 Catholic churches were destroyed. There are 150,000 Japanese Catholics. In China damage done to Catholic missions is estimated at one-and-ahalf billion dollars."
