Black Catholics Seek More Voice VATICAN CITY (AP) - The head of a group here to urge greater control by black Americans over their church life says the response from U.S. prelates attending the World Bishops Synod lias been "open and profitable." But one member of the group takes strong exception. Joseph Davis, a Mairianist lay >rother and executive director of the National Office of Black 3athollcs, and five other American black Roman Catholics are lere primarily to Insist upon the appointment of a black archbishop for Washington, D.C., to replace Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle. Cardinal O'Boyle, 75, is "known to have tendered his resignation, but Pope Paul VI has not yet accepted it. His dejected face slumps under a snobby hat. We don't know wFio ne is. But w« know what he is. He is a MAN. One of usf • To his loved ones ho may be a disappointment. To himself he may be a failure. To society he may be useless. • • » But to God he is a SOUL — like each of us! And therefore his whole life can change .. . when one day he'll discover the power and^strength and hope with which every soul is endowed. ' '*"'" Quietly, behind the closed doors of a pastor's study, the Church is daily helping men to come to grips with their problems. Sunday by Sunday its pulpits are imparting faith and courage for those secret inner struggles. The century-old Christian concept of the dignity of man has never rested simply on who and whaf we are. It is founded on the vision of what — with God's help — we can become.
