Walesa infant baptism delayed 'J1URIN, Italy (NC) - The family of Lech Walesa, the Po· lish labor leader imprisoned since the Dec. 13 imposition of martial law in Poland, has de­ cided to postpone baptism of the youngest Walesa until her father can attend, the Turin-based daily newspaper, La Stampa, has re­ ported. Maria Victoria, born Jan. 27, had been scheduled to be bap­ tized in Gdansk, Poland, March 7.

Danuta Walesa, Lech Walesa's wife, later told Western report· ers in Poland that the baptism is scheduled for March 21 and that her husband would be released by then to attend the service. Mrs. Walesa also said that her husband would be at home to celebrate Easter, April 11, with his family. Polish authorities did not com· ment on that development. Walesa, head of Solidarity, Poland's suspended independent labor union, is being held by the government· at an undisclosed location near Warsaw.

Politics, unions not for 'priests VATICAN CITY (NC) - An official of the Vaticans Congre­ gation for the Clergy said that a document on associations of priests released by the congrega­ tion on March 8 had little im­ mediate applicabillty to the Uni­ ted States. "Truthfully, we did not have. the United States in mind when the document was written," said the official, who preferred not to be identified, "though, of course, the message is meant for the whole church." The document prohibits priests from forming organizations in support of a particular political ideology or associations which would band priests to advance their own objectives in the man, ner of a secular labor union. The document, titled "Declara­ tion on Some Associations arid Movements Forbidden to the Clergy," specifies certain valid priests' associations. "These would be organizations which have to do with the min­ isterial work of the priest and exist to make the ministry more fruitful," said the congregation official. He gave as an example priests' senates, which exist in most U.S. dioceses or groups promising the spiritual life or works of charity.

Our Changcng Colleges 'Blame it. on the times or whatever. Yet one cannot deny that'dramatic changes are taking place on our college and university' campuses. The murky depths of, our eco­ nomic mess have occasioned concern and agony in the halls of ivy. The lightning growth of the computer world has also cut its own distinctive path across many a quad­ rangle. These developments nave !\ffected attitudes and behaviorial patterns of students. . ' For example, there is a marked shift away from what might be termed traditional liberal arts course's to fields offering better earning opportunities, such as business and law. The new thinking is also reflected in the declining numbers pursuing graduate degrees in academic subjects~ The number and quality of students aspiring to be tomor­ row's professors are indeed shrinking. There is no doubt that finances are a serious problem 'fo~ many. Tightening of student loan requirements and the universal rise· in tuition rates are major reaons why increasing numbers of collegians have or are seeking side jobs or are attending'school only parttime. Stress can also play havoc with the life of a student. In addition to long study hours, young people todayf~ce . longer working hours. Social pressures, poor dietary habits and insufficient rest form a lethal combination that many students just cannot handle. The result is a growing college suicide rate. ' Another sign of change ori the college'level is the very . conservative mood of students. The political activity which so m:arked the past decade is becoming a fading "memory. Pure survival is the main reason for liberal dreams ending in oblivion. Again, more students, victims ot' our permissive. society, are living, together. Often such arrangements are difficult and demanding in themselves, adding to stu­ dent woes. "~". ,,:;1,.' ."" ~:..

The human heart must be' fed as well as the human body.

THE

They're In school!

"I can't wait until they all get in school," is a ,phrase uttered by mothers' the country over. It ushers in the third stage of family life ­ when the last child enters school. This crucial stage opens up new vistas for mothers and consider­ ably changes at-home relation­ ships in families. This stage means that wives can become more interested in people outside the home - pro­ fessors, bosses, co-workers ­ as they reenter the job market, volunteerism, and college. They can also become more indepen­ dent, more tired and more insis­ tent that the family share in household and familial chores. But families aren't always eager to do this. They like hav­ ing the old wife and mom on hand to meet their physical and emotional needs. .In fact, one of the greatest tensions of this stage comes when the family permits Mom an additional career on con· dition that she continue to senre at home as she has always done - which is Impossible. She sim­ ply can't add eight hours of work, study or volunteerism to her schedule without' cutting back on something else. If she tries, she's heading for a family breakdown. The husband frequently feels threatened at this stage. His wife's new-found independence

can unsettle him and he doesn't like doing occasional laundry after working all day. Or picking the children up from basketball practice. The best thing a family has going for it at this time is fidel­ ity and supportiveness. Many families, in fact, report that this is a much healthier time in fam­ ily life because Mom has other interests and they don't feel re­ sponsible for her total fulfill­ ment. Families who encourage their wife and mother in her new life outside the home feel good about it. They assume more responsi­ bility for picking up their cloth­ ing, doing'their homework with­ out nagging and cooking a meal before she gets home. Families who sit back and wait for her to come home to serve them experience unhappi­ ness. My favorite story on this concerns the 44-year-old mother who served and supported her four children through' college, then announced she wanted to go to college herself. "But, "Mom," came their stunned reo sponse, "when you're finished you'll be 48." "I'll be 48 anyway," she re­ plied calmly. How can Lent serve this fam­ ily stage? It's a good opportun­ ity for the family to evaluate f~elln,gs and responsibility to­ ward this shift in relationships

Does she have a right to spend more time on church work or homework than on me? Why should I have to dust? Did I marry to send my wife off to work with other men? Can we'support her in the way she has supported us? How fairly are family chores allocated? And, most impor­ tantly, can we pray together to bring about a happier' family re­ lationship in this vital stage of family life? Someone once likened the fam­ ily to a spiderweb. Whenever one strand is touched, the whole web shakes. When a dad leaves home, when a teen gets a job, when a mother goes to work, the web becomes temporarily un­ settled. Yet all the strands are needed for a healthy' web. The' family where each member. fo­ cuses on' the entire web as well as on his or her own strand re­ mains the strongest.

Elections debate

With the March 28 elec­ tions in El Salvador moving closer, debate over the value of the elections seems to have intensified. One side says the wartorn country is not ready for free and meaningful elec­ tions; the other says they will be a legitimate demonstration of the wishes of the people and a major step toward peace. Among those who have com­ mented, at least indirectly, on the elections has been Pope John 'Paul II. Four weeks before the vote he endorsed a statement by the bishops of El Salvador which, while recognizing the "abnormal circumstances" under which the elcetions will be ,held, generally backed the election process. But others have' warned that the elections may turn out to be less than representative. The Reagan administration also has been accused of banking too much on the elections instead of also pursuing negotiations. aimed at ending the fighting between the country's warring factions. Electing a new constituent as­ sembly for El Salvador is the main purpose of the balloting. That assembly's major task will be to draft a constitution and prepare for presidential elections possibly next year. How representative the elec­ tions will be remains a question. The guerrillas in El Salvador and their political arm, the Demo­ cratic Revolutionary Front, say they wUI boycott them and the guerrillas say votes will be kill-

viations" from the church's ban on .priests' involvement 'in parti­ . san politics and its demand for . doctrinal fidelity. Father Pittau, former Jesuit provincial in Japan, is rumored to be the pope's choice as suc­ cessor to Father Arrupe when the general congregation elects a · new superior general. At the press conference, Father Pittau declined to discuss de~ails of the meeting's other major topics' -apostolic formation, discipline, fidelity to the teach­ ing authority of the church and secularizing tren4s. . But in commenting on the criticism by some German Jes­ uits of Pope John Paul's extra­ ordinary appointments of new Jesuit leadership, Father Pittau indicated a route that Jesuits throughout the world are likely to follow in the future. "We obey, but St. Ignatius (founder of the Jesuits). told us that we can present our differ­ ences to our superiors," he said. "The Germans said to the' pope, let us tell you our difficul­ ties. We have a responsibility to tell you that we want a general congregation as soon as possi­ ble," he said. "The letter was not an act of rebellion, not an act against obedience, but one of the phases in our process of obedi­ · ence."

Instead, they' carried a clearer sense of the church's expecta. ·tions for the 26,622-member so~ ciety, the likelihood of the elec­ tion of a new superior. general within 18 months, and a feeling of Pope John Paul II's "very deep iove" for the order, accord­ ing to the Jesuit second-in-com­ mand. Father Giuseppe Pittau, the 53-year-old coadjutor to Father Paolo Dezza, the pope's personal delegate to the Jesuits, summed up the Feb. 23-March 3 session at a press conference March 8 in Rome. The most controversial topic ·of discussion among the 86 Jes­ uit provincials and other leaders was "the problem of how to live the priestly life and what to leave to the laity," said Father Pittau. And in the even more contro­ versial area of political action by priests, the unresolved ques­ tion was "in what circumstances can a Jesuit' exercise a direct political role when there are no lay people to 00 so?" he said. "Even the pope admits that in some circumstances" such poli­ The Task tical action by priests may be ·justified, Father Pittau said.

According to Father Meier, in­ terest in :be~ter financial manage­ ment for religious institutes ante­ dates the current federal budget cut backs. developing when fed­ eral laws were changed in the 1960s and 1970s. Then, ·for the first time, reli­ gious institutes were liable for taxes on unrelated business in­ come. Social Security and Medi­ caid benefits were made avail­ able ·to elderly religious but their communitie~ were taxed for the former and involved in'more red tape in order to participate in the latter. : On the heels of those changes came fund-raising and financial­ management scandals involving religious orders 'or programs, and the resulting need for Religious to better "monitor our own fin­ ancial reporting . . . and try to avoid repetition" of the problems, Father Meier. added.

do more long-range financial planning and to involve skilled lay people in religious institutes' financial matters. Sister Mlocek and Father Meier said. As a result of such new atti­ tudes, religious leaders now fre­ quently seek training in finances and investment. They are also increasingly concerned about social justice issues, the practices of corporations in which they may have stock investments and the need for accounting and money management practices re­ flecting religious values. Although they must fund their apostolic works, religious groups do not share the concern of the secular world for large profits or at least a healthy bottom line. "We have values that go be­ yond that." said Father Meier. In other words. the religious bottom line remains "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice and all these things shall be added unto you."

Chinese paper praises Jesuits uits are marked by "gigantic marble tombstones decprated with Catholic crosses and tradi­ tional Chinese carvings which re­ produce swarms of dragons:' The Vatican Radio report was broadcast less than a week after Pope John Paul II said in a talk to Jesuit leaders Feb. 27 that the Society of Jesus hoped to resume its once "privileged place" as evangelizers of China. Most Jesuits, like all foreign missionaries, were imprisoned or expelled from China after the 1949 communist takeover.

Synod document released

VATICAN CITY (NC) - Hu­ man reconciliation with God and with other human beings in a troubled world will be key topics at the 1983 world Synod of Bish­ ops, according to a 50-page prep­ aratory document released at the Vatican. It was the first time the Vati­ can has made public a prepara­ tory synod document. Previously, the preparatory documents were sent on a confidential basis to bishops. The document provil1es 27 questions to promote discussion of the synod theme, "Reconcilia­ tion and penance in. the mission of the church." "To the extent that Christians are thankful and faithful to God for the great gift of reconcilia­ tion received, they become living witnesses and founts of recon­ ciliation in everyday existence," said the document.

tions for church teachings on penance and reconciliation. "The central nucleus of bibli­ cal revelation is precisely this: God does not abandon man in his sinful condition, but wishes to bring him into communion with him," the document said. Part three, "The Church .Sa­ crament of Reconciliation," con­ tains a discussion of pastoral issues involved in the church's ministry of reconciliation. It reiterates the church's stand on general absolution, saying that it is permissable' only "if there is a great need, namely when, in view of the number of penitents, sufficient confessors are ncit available ... so that the penitents would, through no fault of their own, have to go without the sacramental grace of Holy Communion for a long time."

expect to change your views, but because they want their own way. We think that carefully thought-out, "hoijse rules" can alleviate mych arguing. "House rules" are' policies that stand day after day. They change only in special unusual circumstances. With house rules in place, teens and parents have no, reason to argue about each instance that comes up. I We agree with your son that there is nothing wrong with go­ ing out, even every night. A young man of 16 seeks the ,com­ panionship of his agemates. That is normal. ' There are 'no other young peo­ ple at home. You do not mention any behavior problems or prob­ lems with school work. Appar­ ently your son is doing every­ thing right. You admit you can find no reaslln to insist he stay home. ' You might set the following hours: On school nights he must be home by 10 p.m.; on week­ ends he may' stay out once' until 11 p.m. and once until midnight. Those are only guidelines, hours which seem reasonable to 'us. The important thing is that you, establish a policy so both you and your son know what to expect. Next, it is, important to focus

on your' son's good points. He seems reasonable, respectful, obedient, and apparently he does not get into trouble. Not all par­ ents of 16-year-olds can say this. Perhaps you and your husband together can write down all your son's good points. The simple act of writing them down will make you more aware of them.' Good points in anyone should not be taken for granted. Finally, if some of your older children live in your area, they can be a resource for you. Per­ haps your young son can visit or stay with them on occasion during vacations. Perhaps they have children close to him in age. With such arr!lngements you and your husband might en­ joy a brief vacation 'from parent­ ing, while your young son en­ joys his extended family. If you 'can use the resources of your family, focus on good points and set reasonable house rules which are acceptable to you and your son, you will have taken several steps toward the peaceful household you want and deserve. ,Reader questions on family living and child care to be an­ swered in print· are invited.

uestion corner By

Father John Dietzen

Q. A short time ago you an­ swered a ,question about prayer, how our prayers are answered by God, and how he does things for us In the light of our pll1lyers. But doesn't God know what's best for us, and won't he do that, If he really loves us, regardless of what we ask for - or for that matter whether we pray at all? (pennsylvania) A. Obviously, God' does love all people. Scripture teIls us that he views all of his creation as good, and this goes most of all for human beings, who are made most like him in their ability to know and to love. Because of that love, he always wants what is best for us. Many elements essential to our relationship to God enter our lives with prayer, not least of which is the deep desire for the things God gives us, which must be in our hearts if we are to re­ ceive his gifts. But did it ever occur to you that what is best may be quite different if I am praying desper­ ately for something than if I am not? We are individuals, all diff­ erent, even in' our deepest rela­ tionlihip with God and the world. My humility before God, my' trust in him, my conviction in faith and love that something will be good for me, for my chil­ dren whom I love, or for the people for whom I care very much - all tl)is goes in to de­ termine what is really best for me in God's eyes here and now. This surely does not mean that we ought always to receive ex­ actly what we pray for, It, if we pray hard enough. But prayer (and that means above all a habitual prayerful spirit before God) affects us deeply, so that we are ,truly not the same persons we would be if we did not pray. Therefore, what is best for us will be different, too, in God's eyes as well as our own. Q. My fonner husband, whom I married In the church at a nup­ tial Mass, died recently. We were divorced 30 years ago, and three years later he married a Catholic woman In a Baptist church. He never practiced his faith as far as I know. Recently, he became ,suddenly III and died In a coma, without regaining consciousness. But how could he be given the last rites and be burled from the Catholic Church? shocked at this. (IIllnols) A. First of all, there may be much about his last y~ars and days that you do not kn6w. Off­ hand, I can think of several cir­ cumstances that might legiti­ mately explain his burial from the church. Perhaps some of these would be unknown o~tside of those closest to him in his final hours. Most important, however, the church gives every benefit of the doubt to one who has been a Catholic and who indicates any desire ~o be considered a Cath­ olic wh~n he dies. Catholic burial never implies approval of all an individual's

Service·integral

WASHINGTON (NC) - Jesuit Father Paul C. Reinert, chancel­ lor of St. Louis University, told educators that service is integral to Catholic colleges and univer­ sities. He said the principal pur­ poses of a college can suffer "unless administrators, faculty and students generally engage in some carefully planned; targeted and controlled form of commun­ ity service." The priest spoke at a Washington meeting of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities.

actions; even less does it imply any judgment of him one way or the other. The church simply ac­ cepts the person as one of its children, as a brother or sister of Christ, prays for him or her and professes its faith in the lov- , ing mercy of God. You were deeply hurt by the divorce and the wounds obvious­ ly are still far from healed. But I hope you don't begrudge him either the church's prayers or your own. Questions for this column should be sent to Father Dietzen, St. Mark's Parish, 1113 W. Brad­ ley, Peoria, nt. 61606.

Baltimore may own St. Francis book BALTIMORE (NC) -- A Balti­ more exhibition in honor of the SOOth anniversary of the birth of St. Francis of Assisi Included a missal believed to have been used by the saint. The Latin book, dating from about 1200, is thought by schol­ ars to- be the one St. Francis opened to the' three random passages which inspired his re­ unuciation of worldly possessions and his turning to God. The exhibition, "God's Min­ strel: St. Francis of Assisi," was presented by the Archdiocese of Baltimore and Walters Art Gal­ lery, with additional funding from the Maryland Committee for the Humanities. The book, known as the A'ssisi missal, is part of an art col1ec-' tion bequeathed to the city of Baltimore in 1931 by Henry Walters: Walters bought the mis­ sal in 1913 from a Paris art dealer. Robert Bergman, director of the city-owned Walters Art Gal­ lery, said that although no exact, determination of the missal's au­ thenticity has been made, there is strong circumstantial evidence linking it to St. Francis, founder of the Franciscan orders of friars and preachers.

,The age of psychology

B~

know your faith Psychiatry and God By Dolores Leckey One of my best friends is a psychiatrist. We met in a Chris­ tian meditation group. There I came to know Dr. Gerald May as a person at the center of the ongoing contemporary' conversa­ tion between psychology and faith. Some years ago, fresh from his psychiatric residency, he was working in 'a drug rehabilitation program, using all the medical and. psychological tools at his dis­ posal to treat clients. Some peo­ ple got better. and some did not. He wondered what made the dif­ ference. To his amazement, May dis­ covered that many who recovered from drug addiction, or who were clearly on the path to recovery, shared a .common experience: some awaresness of a mystel}' at the heart of life. " U ; It was· at,' this :point. he' claimSl that the most important insight of his career occurred.. He saw that he was not the one who healed people. Other factors were at work. May began to regard his skills in psychology and psychiatry as tools - helping grace ttl flood a person's life; opening a person to the grace tha~ is always avail­ \1 • able. The rigorous training psychia­ trists receive does not always in­ clude courses inspirftuality. Yet May's work in drug rehabilitation led to some radical changes in his idea of what good therapy is, what he could contribute to peo­ ple who are emotionally ill. For example, he thinks it not only appropriate but advisable f~r him to pray for his clients - and sometimes with them. Part. of his professional work is at the state mental hospital. There he has found that teaching patients some techniques of meditation - being open and . receptive; learning to listen and to :be quiet - often relaxes them enough to open them to psychia­ tric help. For May, spirituality and psy­ chology are "yokefellows," to use -St. Paul's phrase. Of course, he. uses the tools of psychiatry Iiugely. to treat people who are seriously ill emotionally. But for a moment let's speak mor~ broadly. What have spirit­ uality and psychology to do with each other?· You JJJay remember St. Paul's poignant cry in his letter to the Romans: "I do not understand my own actions. For I do' not do what I want, but I do the very

thing I hate ... Wretched man that lam." What psychology and psychiatry have demonstrated is the vast area of unconscious life that is part of' us. Our conscious life influences our conscious decisions. It has some effect on the way we act, the things we fear or' enjoy, what we hope for and how we plan our lives. . Many believe that realization of the unconscious is one of the greatest of modern discoveries. The study and practice of PSY­ chology are a way of bringing forth our hidden selves, of let­ ting us see why we act as we do, and perhaps of expanding our ability to act responsibly. And that is part of what 'it means to be mature: growing' in awareness of what we want and why; of what we care about.

When I asked .May what he would cite as the single' 'most im~ portant contribution psychology could make' to the faith life of Christians, he replied, "Bringing to consciousness the unconscious defenses against God!' There is a slowly growing opinion 'among practitioners in psychology; typified by May (and his older brother, Rollo May, a widely known author), that in the' 'depths of the, human soul there is a mystery. This mystery - one Christians call tile Holy Spirit -is not a puzzle to be solved. It is an invitation, a sum­ mons to a journey. For May this is a'vital insight. He thinks psychology can help those served by it to enter the divine presence. What happens after that is a matter of freedom, human, and divine, and of grace.

By. Father John Castelot

cording to their Christian inter­ pretation, prepared for John. Be­ fore Mark says a word about _John, he cites a mixture of Old Testament passages - one from Chapter 40 of Isaiah. And even though the verses come from different contexts and apply to different situations, they refer to the coming of a' messenger who will prepare for an intervention on God's part. For the early. Christians, John was that mess­ enger. .

Since Mark is writirig a pro­ clamation of the good news and not a life of Jesus, he tells his readers nothing about the Sav­ iour's origins. In fact, he gives no information about Jesus prior to his appearance on the public scene. Instead Mark opens his Gospel with an account of the ministry of John the Baptizer. From the point of view of a. writer, this sets the stage for the entrance of Jesus. But more important, from the theological point of view, it identifies him as the Messiah and, indeed, as the Son of God. .If John prepares the reader for Jesus, the Scriptures have,. ac-

Why do people refer to this as the age of psychology? Accor4ing to Notre Dame Pro­ fessor John Borkowski, psy­ chology has had a "dramatic effect on our culture." Psycholo­ gical theories "filter slowly down through a 'culture .over the de­ cades, affecting novels, art and music," he explained. Gradually, the psychologist continued, these theories begin to exert a "subtle influence on people," on what they value and what they expect from life. As an example, Borkowski pointed to the influence exerted by Sig­ mund Fre'ud's theories. What has seeped into our culture is a search for "individualism and self-fulfillment," with some diffi­ culties as the result, he said.. In going about its tasks, psy­ chology is guided by a model which makes certain assumptions about why human beings act as they do. This model "defines the arena and guides the theories developed' about human be­ havior," Borkowski said. He hop\ls that psychology is on the threshold of developing a new model and that a 'more realistic view of what human life should be will filter into our culture. He hopes this will help people come to better terms with their lives. The new model Borkowski re­ fers to su~gests that it Is quite

normal to experience conflict and tension in one's life. This means we are often going to be restless., What does this mean in terms of the search for happiness? Borkowski suggested that there is a need for people to associate happiness more closely with "re­ cognizing who you are and where you fit in the world, knowing your relation to God and to other people." ,Borkowski added, however, that this is not the "common definition of happiness," a word he tends to rebel against. In his opinion, people too often see happiness as something "static," a point they can reach. "where nothing is tugging against them." Turn to Page Thirteen

drug abuse, alcohol use, violence, ­ sex and profanity; fairer repre­ sentation of minorities and the elderly; and an end to discrim­ ination against Christians and Christian values, and to com­ mercials pandering to sex or pro­ moting personal feminine hy­ giene materials. He cited "The George Burns Early, Early, Early, Christmas Program," which featured Play­ boy bunnies, as an example of ..bad programming. NBC responded to Mr. Wild­ mon's charges with a statement that said the boycott is an "ob­ vious attempt at intimidation" which the network will resist. Following the CBW announce­ ment, Henry Herx, TV critic for NC News ll!nd staff member of the U.S. Catholic Conference's Communication Department, questioned whether such a boy­ cott could be effective. He' noted that NBC is the weakest of the three networks and suggested that, given NBC's already low ratings, judging whether the net­ work's future problems are the result of a succcessful boycott ­ or are just programming failures - will be difficult. More over, determining how many viewers support a boycott also would not be easy, Herx said.

But he added that the boycott may , later be extended to other. net­ works. According to Mr. Wildmon, a Methodist minister, NBC and its parent corporation,' RCA, have "excluded Christian characters, Christian values and Christian culture from their programming." Mr. Wildmon listed 11 de­ mands which he said NBC must address before he calls off the boycott. The demands involved less use of material depicting
