Perry was ordained as the first black Catholic bishop in modem times. Six days later, he ordained me to the priesthood in Techny, Illinois. My class was his first• The missionary order to which I lJeiong in the Catholic Church, Di- vine Word Missionaries (SVD, ac- ronym for Latin "Societas Verb= Divini"), pioneered training blacks for the Catholic priesthood. Bishop Perry was one of our products. Not surprisingly for that period in American history, there were pro- testers outside the ca- thedral during his ordi- nation ceremony to the bishopric. My grade school classes in Pittsburgh suburbs were "lily white" in racial composition, but all that changed when I started studying for the priesthood• I al- ways had black classmates in my seminary years, especially in Phi- losophy and Theology. Those classes experienced increased blackpercentages because,f trans- fers from Bay St. Louis, Missis- sippi, Bishop Perry's alma mater. I'll always remember the devo- tion my dad had to St. Martin de Porres, a black Dominican lay brother from Peru, who ministered to African slaves brought to that country in the 1600s. While in the seminary, I had sent dad a relic of this saint after his heart attack in the 1950s. St. Martin is reputed to have been able to bilocate and even do aerial flights. Pope John XXIII, who canonized him in 1962, made him the patron of interracial jus- tice. Dad worked for Jones and Laughlin Steel Corporation in Pittsburgh as a superintendent of the Blooming Mill. One of his responsibilities, of course, was hiring. Given dad's commit- ment to racial justice, I'll always remember the chagrin he expressed when a black man came to him for employment and dad had to turn him down because of work unavailability• His cha- grin stemmed from the prospective employee's reaction: he accused dad of prejudice for denying him a job. Nothing was further from the truth, and it hurt dad deeply. It is good to see blacks more widely integrated into American society now than they certainly were not back in those 1960 years• After all, the American flag is only partially white. It is equally good to see them starting to be more present in GCHS and in our county. The presence of racial pluralism in a community can broaden perspectives, teaching first hand lessons in racial har- mony. As relatively isolated as our kids are in these rural areas of West Virginia, that's a needed experience.
