PRIEST'S COURTESY BRINGS 3 INDIAN SOLDIERS INTO CHURCH

Three non-Catholic soldiers were recently received into the Church by Mgr. Thomas Roberts, S.J., Archbishop of Bombay, in his private chapel at Wodehouse Road, and received their first Holy Communion at the Military Chapel at Colaba.

While,passing through Durban, an Irish Catholic soldier brought three nonCatholic comrades with him to the church when he went to Confession. They were so kindly received by the priest in charge, an Oblate of Mary Immaculate, and by *the local Catholics, that they said there was a spirit in the Catholic Church that they could not find elsewhere.

During their voyage from Durban to Bombay, they used all available time on board asking questions about the Church of their Catholic companion, and arguing with him on Catholic doctrines and practices. They also went through the Catechism which had been given to them by the priest at Durban. Becoming convinced of the truth of the Catholic position, they only needed a few day's further instraction before their reception.
