Issu'es Guidelines For Holy Week . .

Bishop Daniel A. Cronin has issued directives concerning the celebration of the Rites of Holy Week. The Commission for Divine Worship has also announced a group of consultative sessions to' assist clergy, Religious and laity in a more fruitful c~lebra­ tion of the Holy Week Rites. Only the speci~l Holy, Week services are included in the portion of the newly translated Missal: The Passion Sunday Rite and Mass (formerly "Palm Sunday"), the ChrIsm Mass of Holy Thursday morning, the Holy. Thursday evening Mass of the Lord's Supper, the Good Friday afternoon service, and the Easter Vigil and Mass. Modification of the Rites of Holy Week principally affects the texts of the orations, antiphons and readings; options have been introduced for certain of, the rites and prayers.

.

"While the' changes are less sweeping than some made in the past, it Is," the Bishop point· ed out, "nonetheless incumbent upon those charged with pas.toral responsibility to study the new rites carefully in order to cerebrate them with solemnity and pastoral· sensitivity. ParisI:1 musicians must plan the Holy Week rite!! with the priests.'! While not describing· the new rites in detail, 'the bishop's directive did highlight changes, J:ur~

VATICAN, CITY (Nt) -;- The first ambassador to the Holy' See from Thailand presented his credentials to Pope Paul VI in brief ceremonies here. He is Chatichai Choonhavan, a 48-year-old Buddhist, whQ will continue his duties as 'ambassador to Switzerland with residence'in Berne. Dual presentation is a common practice among smaller nations. In his address of welcome, Pope Paul said in English: "We express the hope and desire that Thailand will enjqy ever-increasing progress and prosperity and be 'J:>lessed with ' tranquility and peace." The Pope' pledged the efforts , of the, Church "in fostering the well being of a people whose very name recalls their proud 'heritage of freedom."

, 'Duringa recent poll of directors,' officers and staff of The Fall River National Bank, it was found that drugs are the number one priority in the Fall'River area. Drugs are a problem--:a .major problem. Drug abuse touches all segments 'of our oommunity. Drug abuse· is a 'major disease and it. is·eating into one of our community's greatest assets- our youth.. '.

, A lot of people have talked about the drug problem but now we are going to do more . ,than just talk, and we ask ~veryone t.o join us. Control of ,drug abuse requires education, understanding, rehabilitation and money. We are not aple to rehabIlitate,' but we intend, to serve as activators in other areas. At the present time, we are 'holding. a drive within' The Nation~i Bank for donations from o~r own people to help aid ,local drug ,action agencies. , During April, WE will conduct a mo'nth-Iong concentrated effort to spark action within the area to. fight drug abuse.

Ordain New Bishop In North Vietnam', VATICAN' CITY (NC)..-, The / ,ordination of a new bishop to fill an empty North Vietnam~se diocese has ,been confirmed by'a Vati~an spokesman. Frederico Alessandrini of the Vatican press office confirmed" reports, out of Hanoi that Father Paul Nguyen Nang has been oro, dained bishop of Vinh by Archbishop Joseph Trinh Nhu Khue of Hanoi. The appointment of the new' bishop had n6t been announced by the Vatican in its normal information bulletins. However, Alessandrini said the orqination was "regular."This implied that it was authorized by the ~oly See although communications between the Holy See' and the Church in Vietnam have been difficult and infrequent in recent years because of the war. Alessandrini said no 'further details were available on the appointment because of the lack of free communic~tion.

WASHINGTON (NC) - VicePresident Spiro Agnew struck a discordant note with Americans United for Separation of Church and State when he recently said he, had no objection to govern· ment aid,for ~ath6lic schOols. C. Stanley Lowell,' AUSCS . . associate director, used Agnew'~ golfing experiences, to, make his point. '!'We did not protest" •. when Agnew "struck hapless ,spectators with errant. golf balls. ' l,3ut 'when he tries to soak the de"fenseless taxpayers' with the I c cos's of Roman Catholic schools, tl1is is going too far.': 0

Agnew told Wall that "the hard line church and state sep.aratio·n, ,theory is no longer as powerful as it once, was in the minds of the Protestant constituencies around the. country. "I think it is now possible," Agnew said in the article "to develop the kind of assistance that is' needed:"

In a statement denouncing the Lowell predicted that state aid to Church schools "will go on and on until the institutions of this Church will receive full government subsidy, and a little more.

About half the mil\tary budget ,in the United States is not spent on the wasteful technolqgy. of. an ever-spirallil1g nuclear arms race. It is spent upon ground troops either fighting in Vietriam or ready to engage in other "limited" operations. Is any reduction possible here with- running their show' and :telling out handing the world over them what' to do. Whatever else they'may or may not want, they to Communist expansion? do not want the ex-conquerors back.J<orea was an exception'. The Americans· not. only, ..had U.N. - cover. They had in Syngh.man Rhee the embodiment· of Korean .nationalism arid the' uniqlJe fact that· the .outgoing· imperialists' were . yellow and' Japanese.

By BARBARA WARD

In Vie'tnam: t"heoutgoing colo~ . nialists were white and French '(and America's Eurbpean' allies), The center of local nationalism was with Ho Chi-Minh iJ'l the North. These: precoriditions' in, evitably .dragged, the Americans into ail essentialiy and tragically civil' struggle with overtones of ':Iiberation". and radical change which a large modernized, technological Great Power is wholly unfitted to handle.

This, after" all, is a frivolous question, The Poles have recently, reminded us how weary even the workers can be of the workers' utopia. o If . a system' which imposes itself by force on its own people there turns-as in Czechoslovakia - to impose itself on other people, are the nations simply to stand aside and let the violence and the injustice be done? Where would Europe be if the British and' later the Americans had simply allowed Hitler to have his way? The lesson of 1939 was surely to stop dictatorships while there is time. Is the lesson no longer valid today? Dubious Instrument There are a number, of reasons for questioning .}Vhether developed industrialized nations, including America, can, effectively undertake the military task of stopping disorder and aggression in the Third World. Europe is another matter. Between highly developed modernized nations, the strategy of holding a military balance can be an effective policy. It has long been called "the balance of power" and although it does not absolutely guarantee peace, it can hold off. violent conflict for long periods. But much of current U. S." expenditure is either absorbed in Vietnam or is in readiness for beginning where conflicts are most likely to break out - in Asia, Africa and Latin America. And it is here among what are very largely post-colonial peoples that G'reat Power intervention, with all the latest means of military technology-:-shQrt of nuclear arms-is a very dubious instrument for use in any so called international police action. The chief reasons are political. T'he new nations which have emerged from colonial or semicolonial control 'have two things in common, The first is an unfinished search for modern conditions combined with great instability as the search goes' on. To modernize is to produce 'deep social division" as some grow rich and others are left behind, Every conflict has elements of potential civil war. For an outsider to become involved is the equivalent of being sucked into a thick bog of local politics. The second Roint is historical. All developing peoples share a memory of white Westerners

On Saturdays everyone is responsible for. one room of the_ large house. They dust, wash and wax until that room is sparkling. If they want to spend a weekend with friends they do their job on several afternoons . during the preceding week. "They never have to be told to do their jobs-it's a pattern for them," said their mother. Jeanine is learning to sew and we give her her fill of sewing and mending. We try to encourage them to do the things they enjoy." . The two oldest boys, Michael and Paul, who are students at Coyle, were on '~What's 'My Linc" this year. Their unusual occupation is peeling eggs for a neighborhood businessman. They also pickle tripe and pigs feet. An army mess sergeant could learn a few things from Mrs. Pelletier's mass buying system. "We have two freezers and I buv meat only when it's on sale. if chickens are on sale I buy 40 or 50. I also buy 100 to 200 loaves of day old bread at a time. I buy dented cans almost by the case." She thoroughly enjoys and makes the most of her garden.' "I freeze everything," she says. "Some afternoons we'll bake eight cakes and freeze them." She swears they are their milkman's be,st customer. The cl!i1dren are all good eaters and they are never sick-not even with colds, she says. ,Share Blessings The Pelletiers have been so keenly aware of their blessings that they wanted to share them and this' is what prompted them two years' ago to addp~ Brian, now aged five. The whole, family voted to do this. "We had wanted very much to adopt a Vienamese baby and we tried so hard. We wrote to Washington and even the Bishop of Saigon begging him to help us. But it's almost an impossibility. The quota is something like seven children a year," Mrs. Pelletier said. ' But Brian with his sparkling black eyes and huge dimp~e, fills all their hearts and he is a lucky boy indeed to be part of th'is warm and wonderful famil~. ,

Like Changes' DETROIT (NC)-Most Detroit Catholics like the changes in the Church since Vatican Council II, ,but sOlne still yearn for the go~d old days,' the final report of a comprehensive archdiocean sur·' vey shows. Over 60 per cent of arc'hdiocesan priests, Religious and adult laity polled thought Church changes were either proceeding at the right speed or should go faster.
