Archbishop Edward Howard

Religious strife and bit­terness have become rare and incidental: Catholic and non-Cath­olics of all religious beliefs and of none — work together in close harmony for everything that pertains to the common good. The Church’s institutions of worship, of charity, of education are flourishing. The only enemy we have to fear— but this is po­tent — is lethargy. We have a solemn obligation to transmit to our children the priceless heritage we have received from our fathers. To this end we must re-kindle in ourselves the zeal of our forbears, their spirit of self-sacrifice. Our churches, our schools, our charitable institutions are overcrowded. Without any assistance of subsidy from public funds we must provide for these pressing needs. Will we be equal to the challenge which faces us?

— Archbishop Edward Howard’s pastoral letter, March 7, 1957
