Certainly no one can even begin as yet to measure the affectionate help and assistance that will be given to the homeless and emotionally disturbed children who will be cared for in the new St. Vincent's Home on Highland Avenue in Fall River, where construction is almost路 completed. This new endeavor was undertaken with great courage by my predecessor Bishop Connolly, and with its mQdern facilities, the Home should be able to provide the most recent professional methods of bringing assistance to the young ones who will be received there. It has been with great sacrifice that this enterprise has been carried on, and it will require the most ardent support of all to insure its success.

It stressed that the responsibility for adaptations of the new ritual dies with the bishops' conferences, although some provisions are made for decisions by individual bishops and the celebrant. As far as bishops' conferences are concerned, the article' stated that "the question hi not only that of translating the ritual into 路a living language and to avoid being overliteral ... but also of truly adapting this rituaL" Nevertheless, it was also stated that the "basic ritual," which is the normal way of proceeding in initiating an adult into the Christian life, should not be omitted.

,SANTIAGO (NC) - Cardinal Raul Silva of Santiago said he expects to ship soon 10,000 copies of the ,Bible to Cuba, thanks in part to a contribution from Pope Paul VI. The shipment, which has prior approval of Marxist authorities in Cuba, was offered during the Chilean visit last Fall 'of Premier Fidel Castro. When acute paper shortages here prevented the printing of such -large edition, the Chilean Bishops Conference sought to buy the Bibles in Spain, but some $15,000 was needed. Castro asked about -the delay in delivering the Bibles during a meeting in February with 12 priests and seminarians visiting from Chile. They belong to the organization Christians for Socialism. Cardinal Silva said tilat 'on a recent trilp to Europe he sought financial aid for the Bible shipment among friends there. One unnamed source gave $10,000, he ,said, after the German Catholic aid organization Adveniat turned down a request fo'r funds. Pope Interested "Jef the Cuban bishops want Bibles, let them ask directly. If the Chilean bishops want to send this gift, let them foot their ,bill," the prelate said was the com· ment of a German source. Cardinal Silva added that he, brought up the subject of the Bible shipmept to Cuba during a private audience with Pope Paul. "He immediately showed a keen interest and wanted the project to succeed. He picked up the phone and called Archbishop Giovannia BenelU, asking him to find $5,000. I was really moved and grateful. "When 1 went to see Archbisbop 'Benelli (Vatican undersecretary of State), he' was waiting for me with 50 bills of $100 each." Last January the Chilean Bishops' Conference,secretary, Bishop Carlos Oviedo Cavada of Concepcion, said the shipment "is a firm offer, and in conversations with Castro it was even mentioned that we could use Cuban ,ships." Months earlier the bishops wanted to send Bibles, to Cuba but dropped the attempt when approva-I came from Havana' for 200 copies only..

Anti-Abortion Rally Planned in Bri"tain


Nurses Schedule Spring Parley

LIVERPOOL (NC) - An antiabortion rally here April 30 is being sponsored by the nondenominational Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. Organizers expect about 20,000 persons to attend. Fleets of buses and a special train will bring people from all parts of the country.. Mrs. Audrey Dawson, an Anglican who is honorary chairman of the rally, said that Britain's present Abortion Act, passed in 1967, is unjust. "No law which denies legal protection to any section of the public because of race, creed, age or size can be just. All it boils down to is that doctors are . being used in an attempt to sweep problems under the mat because society will not face up to its responsibilities, such as developing more adequate' housing or giving a fair deal to unsupported mothers."

Protest Expanding French Army Base PARIS (NC) - Two French bishops have joined a protest movement in south central France that is seeking to prevent the extension of a French army camp. Bishop Jean Ernest Menard of Rodez and Bishop Cy.prien Tou'rei of Montpellier recently went to the small town of LaCavalerie, about 50 miles north of the Mediterranean coast to ce,lebrate a Mass for the demonstrators. After the Mass they went to the nearby farm of Lanza Del Vasto, a pacifist writer who undertook a 14-day hunger strike to protest the ministry of defense's decision' to expand the camp of Larroc. Del Vasto is a native of Italy but he has l'ived most of his life in France and writes in French. He is now 70 years old and became a diseiple of the late Mahatma Gandhi during a visit to India between 1936 and 1938.

Start Relief Appeal For South Sudan GENEVA (NC) - the World Council of Churches has launched a $500,000 relief appeal for the South Sudan.

The appeal follows ratification of a peace agreement between government authorities in Khartoum and the South Sudan Liberation Movement. Although hostilities hc,we been suspended, there are still many displaced people as a result of the guerrilla war that split this country between the dominant Arab north and the, black Africans in the south.

gestures and symbols in the Mass in the name of Indianization. Despite the protests, the Vatican approved a 12-point plan submitted by the Indian bishops for the adaptation of the

Dep·lores Cat·holic Writer's Criticismof'Cesar Chavez

The Committee on Pastoral Concerns from Region One of, the Leadership Conference of , Women Religious invites all sis, ters to attend a Day of Sharing at Archbishop Williams High School in Braintree on Sunday, May 7 from 2:00 to 4:30 P.M. At this meeting groups with specific interests, e.g., ethnic America, suburbia, prisons, third world, national political network, communications media, will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, problems, projects and "dreams." The May meeting evolved from a resolution at the March 26th session held at Cushing High School, Boston; The represimtatives from 22 religious communities in the New England area agreed that the' LCWR could be of great service to sisters by fostering meetings, providing a clearing house of services available, communicating to all sisters the work being done by communities, and publishing a neW-s.Jetter coordinating the work ·of the region. Further information about the committee, can be obtained from the chairman, Sister Grace Donovan, provincial of the Holy Union Sisters, 492 Rock Street, Fall River.

Worthy of Regard Pope Praises Priest Associati'ons Working Under Church Authority V:ATICAN CITY (NC)-Associations of priests working within the system of Church authority to foster spirituality 'and the brotherhood of priests were praised by Pope Paul VI. The Pope acknowledged, however, that such associations have an uphill fight in interesting some priests precisely because the associations are approved by Church authority. Speaking of an audience March ,22 to leaders of an association of Italian priests, the National Council of the Apostolic Union of the Clergy, the Pope reiterated the sentiments of the Second Vatican Council and the recent world Synod of Bishops that "such associations serve the whole priestly order." Stating that he values highly the work of priests' associations "in the light of today's priestly reality," the Pope added: We well realize the difficulties your union is encountering today because of the widespread

indifference toward official structures and even joining associations." The Pope said, however, that the personal priestly responsibility and group activities engendered by associations actually lighten the task of authorities. This comes about, the Pope said, either "through the free initiative of the rank and file in accepting the directives of superiors or, while awaiting these directives, in adopting a style of life more animated with the generosity of the Gospel." The Second Vatican Council said that priests' associations are "worthy of high regard and zealojls promotion." The final pronouncement of the 1971 Synod of Bishops on .the ministerial priesthood advocated the promotion of priests' associations because they further the aims of priests and promote '~holiness in the exercise of their ministry."

Nixon Determined to Encourage Flourishing of Nonpublic Schools ,PHILADELPHIA (NC) - The Nixon Administration "is determined to encourage the flpurishing of the nonpublic school systern in this country," according to a message from te President delivered at the 69th annual National Catholic Educational Association convention here. U. S. Education Commission. er Sidney P. Marland, Jr., read Pres-ident Nixon's message as part of his keynote speech on "Public P.olicy and the Private School" at the gathering of an estimate 15,000 Catholic educators from across the nation. "My position on nonpublic . education is well known," Nixon .said in the two-page message, "but I should like'to take this opportunity to路 restate it briefly' here." . Nixon's message said U. S. nonpublic schools "have been integral to our nation's educational system from the very beginning," They provide a healthy competition for the public school system, and "offer spedal opportunities for minorities-notably Spanishspeaking Amer.jcans and black Americans," Nixon said. "The ultimate goal of our total education system in the United States is quality education and equal educational opportunity

far all," Nixon's message said, adding that in order to achieve that goal, "We must put our, schools on a sounder financial footing." For Federal Action Nixon noted that his two-year School Pinance Commission "has recently submitted its recommendations to me," and that the f,inal report of his four-man panel on nonpublic eduucation "shOUld be available within two weeks," The President said he had asked a bi-partisan advisory commiss-ion on inter-governmental relations, to review preliminary school financing proposals, .and said he intended "to make specific ~ecommendations to the Oongress for federal action," In his keynote speech, education commissioner Marland did not clarify what kind of recommendations Nixon might eventually make, but he said the Pres.ident "has directed us to make an earnest search for solutions under law" to the problems of private

STOCKHODF (NC) .,.-, The Catholic Church in SwedeI'! is gradually becoming less of a foreign body and more of a con- ' structive partner ,in inter-<)hurch activities in the country, according to a r~port issued here. The report, entitled "Six Years of Ecumenical Work in Sweden," _ was by Jesuit Father Herman Seiler, former chairman of the ecumenical commission' of the Stockholm diocese. The commISSIon, appointed two weeks after the end 'of the Second Vatican Counci,j by Ameriean-born Bishop John E. Taylor of Stockholm, was the first such commission in Scandinavia Father Seiler said. Many regarded the' commission as a test of the Catholic <J1)urch's wiHingness to participate in ecumenical programs in the traditionally Lutheran countries of Scandinavia, the Jesuit said. "While there has not been any 'ecumenical miracle;' of course, in the last six years," he said; "a remarkable and indeed 'surprising development, deserVing consideration in' other lands, has taken place." ' As a typical example of such ecumenical development, Father SeHer cited the admittance this January of the Catholic Church as a full member of the Swedish Council of Churches. ' "This' fact," he said, "signifies not only an essential change of ' climate, but also a search for solidarity in the fact of ipcreased pressure from radical secularism and in relation ,to the thorough. : ' going change tg be effected, in the near future in the .churchstate relationship."

Centers Moved SANTO DOMINGO (NC)-The government of President Joaquin Balaguer quietly moved birth control centers from six hospitals staffed by nuns, thus complying with requests made by the ~ishops early last year. The centers function elsewhere, along with some 42 clinics devoted to "family 'planning" under the Dominican Republic Council on Population and Family.

• SHREVEPORT (NC) - The families of 43 black children have asked a court to force the diocese of Alexandria, La., to integrate its school system by September. or lose tax exempt status and any federal school aid. The suit filed by parents of the chlidren maintains that the diocesan school system is segregated, has "served as a haven for white families fleeing public school desegregation orders," and has ·served to undercut the desegregation orders of federal courts. Filed in the U.S. District Court for the' western district of Louisiana here, the suit names as defendants Bishop Charles Paschal Greco of Alexandria; Msgr. John Wakeman, diocesan school superintendent; Secretary of the Treasury John B. Connaly; Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Elliot L. Richardson; Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Johnnie M. Walters;. and St. Joseph's parish in Mark~ville,. La.. The 43 children "either attended segregated parochial schools in the diocese of Alexandria, or within the past two years attended a segregated parochial' schOol for black pupils which was closed w,ithout providing said children with an opportunity to attend a racially unitary .parochial school," the suit says. In 1971-72, the parochial school system consisted of 35 schools, with a total enrollment of 10,900 students," the suit says. "About 20 per cent of these students are black. "In 1971-72, 25 of these sch.ools have 90 per cent or more white student enrollment, while 8 h~,:,«:, 80 .1?er .cent or more

Protest'S Viol'enoe on Swedish TV STOCKHOLM (NC) - Samuel Nygren, a father of four children in Falun northwest of Stockholm, has started a nation-wide campaign to make the stateowned television network cut down on profanity, violence and sex scenes in its programs. Nygren appealed to all Christians in Sweden to put away their TV sets during July, August and September and to stop paying their TV license fees for those months. (To have TV sets in their homes, persons in Sweden must pay for licenses, renewed periodically, similar to

automobile licenses in the United States.) 'In an interview in Dagen, a Pentecostalist daily, Nygren said that he is particularly concerned about the profanitY,violence and sex scenes in TV programs for children. He said that he wants "one Christian program every day and one Christian children's program every week on TV. "There are'more than one million active Christians in our country. It is a clear democratic right tha,t we take part in decii sions on TV programming policy."

Cardinal Urges Aid for SchoQls

rHE ANCHORThurs., Apr. l3, 1972

Expect Approva I ·Of School Tax Credit, Plan PHILADELPHIA (NC) - The president of the National Catholic Educational Association has rated, from good to excellent" the chances for passage in Con~ gress this year of a tax credit program benefitting parents of nonpublic school children. FatherC. Albert Koob told a press conferenc!! at the 69th annual NCEA convention here that "one serious weakness" with tax credits is that poor peopl'e who . pay no federal income tax will ,not benefit from the proposal. Thirteen tax credit bills-allowing parents to substract some school costs from their final income tax bill-are now before the Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representativ~s.

The NCEA president said he I)oped companion legislation providing special educational assistance to the poor would also be introduced. Several congressional offices are "toy'ing around" with that kind of legislative pro, posals, the priest said, but nothing concrete has yet been final, ized.

" ' , Other Concerns The NCEA president also discussed what he considers major concerns besides finances, among the estimated ,15,000 Catholic educators attending the convention here, Those concerns fall into three major, categories, he said: determining the best, content and methodology for religious instruction; coping with shared responsibility in school management; and integrating structured c.urricula with independent study, especially amo;lg high school teachers. "I find a great deal of good coming out of the 'purification process' ,in Catholic education," said Father Koob, referring to questions being raised about current Catholic educational philosophy and structure. , Finding answers to some of , the' hard questions, he said, will mean "a much better system of , education in the years to come."

.Ohio Chancellor Favors Nationa I Pastoral Council YOUNGSTOWN (NC) Is there a need for a national pastoral council in the U.S. Msgr. J. Paul O'Connor, Youngstown chancellor and chairman of the U.S. Catholic Conference advisory Council's steering committee studying the feasibility of a pastoral council, emphatically says "Yes." Is such a council advisable now? Just as emphatically, he answers "No." Msgr. O'Connor says the theological basis for a national council grows out of the Vatican II assertion that ent.ire People of God-clergy, Religious and laity-all make up the Church. He also cites Pope Paul VI's comment that man today desires to share in decisions that affect his life. The role and form such a council would assume lJas not yet been decided, but several ideas are emerging. 'Prophetic' Teaching The council, Msgr. O'Connor suggests, would discuss issues of national importance and advise the bishops, encouraging them to be more "prophetic" in their teaching. If a national council existed several years ago, he says, it could have, for example, urged the bishops to issue a statement on conscientious objection much sooner than they did.

Interview with Cardinal Conway Explicit

Practice Justice, Superiors Told

Warns Against "Too' Simple an Interpretation" ARMAGH (NC) - Cardinal W111iam Conway of Armagh sees the British government's takeover of direct control of Northern Ireland "as a positive step." Political life in the British province, he told NC News in an interview "had become polarized and had lost aU flexibility. A break in that continuity. was desirable-analagous to the electric shock treatment given to patients with nervous illnesses ... "Something like this was necessary to break out of a vicious spiral ... It provides a breathing space during which new po'litical alignments and figures may emerge." The cardinal, who was born in the North, said the view that Britain's takeover and dissolution of the Northern Irish parliament was brought about by the violence of the outlawed Irish Republican Army is "too simple an interpretation." The violence would have withered away," he explained, "if there hadn't been deep-seated distrust in a large section of the, population with the existing political arrangements and with some of the methods used to combat violence. It was this deep-seated distrust that produced the change."

ROME NC)-Superiors of Religious orders must practice what they preach by showing justice toward the men and women in their orders before _preaching it to the world. That was the theme of a meeting here at which Religious superiors launched a' program to implement the teachings of the 1971 world Synod of Bishops document on world justice and Pope Paul's Jan. 1 appeal to everyone "to work for justice." At the meeting's end, the Jes" uit superior general, Father Pedro Arrnupe, president of the Union of Superiors General (male), and Mother Mary Linscsott, superior general of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur . and president of the International Union of Superiors General (female), issued a joint communique saying that members of Religous orders "have to witness to justice not only through their " ~ direct involvement in its promotion in the world, but also through their own example in their lives and institutions."

Lutheran-Catholic Group to Meet ROME (NC)-A new international joint working group of Roman Catholic and Lutheran representatives will hold meetings in October to review and evaluate contacts and conversaNons that the two churches have h'ad on various levels over the past five years. The first session will meet Oct. 16-20, probably in Europe, 'and will review earlier dialogues, consider Lutheran-Catholic situations in vari-ous countries, look at relationships between the two bodies on the theological level and give special attention to local and regional contacts and cooperation. Three 'additional sessions are scheduled to be held in the three following years.

GODTHAAB (NC) - The 50 Catholics living among the 46,000 Lutherans who inhabit Godthaab are about to get a church of their own. . The first Catholic church to be constructed on the Danish island since the Midd'!e Ages will be built with the financial assistance of the Cath{)lic archdiocese 'of Cologne in West Germany. At the end of the 14th century

there was a Catholic bishopric Ihere, but it was abandoned when Scandinavian settlers left. The little Catholic community of Godthaab is ministered to by three Oblate Fathers. Father Finn Lynge, 38, who converted to Catholicism 19 years ago and entered the Oblates last Autumn, organized the first pilgr.image to the Holy Land in the island's history.

The Money In-Between. Time Springtime is like a "money in-between time," a chance to catch our breath: hopefully Christmas bills are all paid, and we prudently start putting a little away, anticipating vacation, graduations, and weddings. Even better, for many people this. in-between time brings an addition to their pocketbooks by way of tax refunds. What's my point? There are several. Many people ask what they can do additionally to help th: missions and the. wor~d's poor? Many people, feeling the stram of present-day mflabon, still send a sacrifice regularly and write they wish it could be more. There are many ways to give to the missions, and this "in-between time" is one opportunity we hope is not missed. The missionaries serving in the most poverty stricken areas of the world have no "in-between time" • • • no vacation • • • no tax refunds. The spiritual and material suffering of the poor goes on; the relief, hope and progress missionaries bring de, pends on your suppol'1l, financiallYl-true-but ~st by your concern and love, and by the unseen power of your sacrifices and prayers. Springtime is often 't time when mission concern and sacrifice is forgotten. Yet here is a special opportunity for sharing. When many of us are catching our breath and feeling refreshed with spring fever, the missions begin to feel the additional hardships of neglect. This year could be different if our springtime embraced the poor of the missions!

FAITH God .is Ou'r Father

I !I



.God our Father is a God of For example, one of the, i~reatest paradoxes of Christian :;pirituality is that the God we eall Father is also Mother. In Christian tradition, God the :father does not just generate, he also brings forth; he not only initiates life, he also sustains it; he not only provides food, h~l himself is food. In addition, qualities often closely associated with fatherhood, such as paren. 1ia] authority, justice, and power, are complemented in him by a dependence onilie free love of his sons and" daughters, by mercy, and by 'tenderness. This provides a clue for us to what .it means to be "in God's image." For to be in God's image" whether we are men or women" is to be called to the fullness of' the humanity he gave us, creat·, ing in, ourselves a synthesis of' what are mistakenly referred to as .exclusively 'feminine' quali.. ties. Each human being at times is c:a21ed to reflect strengtih, at. others weakness, at times aggression, at times surrender.

THE ANCHORThurs.. Apr. 13, 1972

Caroline Matilda's Story 'Curiosity of History' "As happy as kings"-it is an ironic expression. Certainly it would be so regarded by close observers of the species. Thus, a woman with long experience of the English court in the nineteenth century said. "The more I know of royalties the more I pity them-the race is a sume power. Caroline Matilda, ignored by her husband most extraordinary one and generally and hostilely viewed by rivals in I'm glad my station in life is the Danish royal family, found of a less exalted degree."


Sour grapes? Consider the specimens found in Hester W. Chapman's Caroline, Matilda: Queen of Denmark (Coward, McCann and Geoghegan, 200 Madison Ave., New York, N. Y. 10016. $6.95) and Nina Epton's Victoria and Her Daughters (NQrton, 55 Fifth Ave., New York, N. Y. 10003. $7.95). Caroline Matilda, born in 1751, was a member of the English royal family. Her father .was Frederick, Prince of Wales, the son of King George II. Frederick died before his father, hence was never king. This gave his father keen satisfaction, for he detested bis son. Why? Sister of George III

a friend in Johann Struensee, a young German physician. The king had taken a fancy to Struensee, who shrewdly used this favor to work himself up to the chief ministerial post. He became, in fact, dictator. For two years, he and Caroline Matilda ruled Denmark, getting the increasingly unbalanced King Christian to sign decrees of their fashioning. The queen and the doctor were more than good friends, and this scandal intensified the fury of their enemies at court. Short Reign A coup was staged in 1772. The king was physically captured by relatives and made their creature, to be manipulated by them as he had been by the queen and the doctor. After the coup, Struensee was beheaded, and Caroline Matilda was exiled to Germany. She had been in Denmark. only six years, a short, turbulent, often nightmarish term. She died alone in 1775, aged 23. Her pathetic story' is of no great importance, except as one of the curiosities of history and as evidence of the doubtfulness of the "'happy as kings" bit. Miss Chapman has written better books about more sigpifkant' subjects. This minor work is marred by some silly and taste-. less .comments abqut relig!ous conversion.

Frederick seems to have been a decent sort. Not too bright, of course, but then neither were other relatives of equal eminence. Kings have a way of disliking and even persecuting any heirapparent. George referred to his Victoria's Daughters son as "the lowest stinking coward in the world," kept him at a .

To say that Victoria dominated her daughters would be to perpetrate an understatement. But at least they enjoyed her affecttion, which is more than can be said for her eldest son, the P.rince of Wales (Iter King Edward 'VII). Some of the narrowness and prejudice characteristic of the mother could be found in the daughters, but one or two of them acquired, a more liberal attitude and even a modest degree of intellectual competence. In this, too, there is a greater distance than that in years between Caroline Matilda and the daughters of Victoria.

.COmmOn Culture Herita'ge Basis for 'Ethn'ic Thing' I note that from that secure bastion of cosmopolitanism. Westchester County, Mrs.. Sidney Callahan has announced that "this ethnic thing is mostly a fraud." Not only is it a fraud, it has "already crested and revealed how little it has to offer.'" Not only is ' the' ethnic "thing" over, it is Of course, as even t:he most also "basically bankrupt." cursory investigation of the sitThis will come as an in-


teresting revelation to the considerable number of younger 1>cholars who are dedicating their professional careers to the study of ethnic heritages in the United States. It will also come as a considerable suprise to many .American, Poles, Italians, Greeks, Hungarians, and Lithuanians who have discovered that for the first time since their ancestors came to the United States it is now legitimate to be proud 9f their past. They are frauds and they are bankrupt if they think that there may be something in their respective heritages that t:ari enrich American life. , Mrs: Callahan's notion of history is, to,.put it mildly, quaint. "Everybody who came to these shores (except the blacks) came because they didn't like something 'in the old country. Mostly thOse somethings that were gladly left behind were barriers arising from highly developed , ethnic, racial, religious, or class consciousness." ,

uation would have revealed to Mrs. Callahan, this is not what those who are interested in the persistence of ethnic group identifkat-ion in American society are talking about-save for the crazies who appear on television occasionally. What most· of us are talking about has noth,ing to do with blood and race. It has to do with common cultural heritage. ' When a black 'man calls another black man "brother," he is asserting that American blacks have had many cultural experiences in common, experiences of oppression, yes, but also experiences of triumphing as human beings over oppression. Blacks share experiences of keeping alive faith and hope and fraternity in the midst of the most impossible of circumstances. Similarly, when an Irishman, or at least some Irishmen, celebrates St. Patrick's day, he is not glorifying Gaelic blood (whatever ,in the world that might be); he is asserting the value of the Celtic and Christian heritage whieh influenced his ancestors , and which still influences,him,

Continued from Page Sixteen It is not surprising then that God revea,ls himself as a father already in the Old' Testament. The prophet' JereP1iah' describes God's thoughts: "How I should like to treat you as sons ... You would call me, 'my father' ... and never cease fOllowing me" (3:19). Hoseah the prophet,puts similar words in the mouth of God: "When Israel was a child, I loved him; out of Egypt I called my son ....It was ,I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms ... I drew them with human cords, with bands of Jove; I fostered them like one who raises an infant to his' cheeks (2:1-4). Catechetical. Directory The Jewish people reponded to God's affection, by calling him their father: "Y<;lU, Lord, are our father" (Isaiah 63:15). Jesus was building on this long tradition when he taught his disciples to pray "our father ..." (Mt. 6:9). His whole life was lived -in an intimate relationship with his father, whose will he accomplished arid whose love he shared with all who were open to accept it. His whole mission in life was to help men real,ize that God was in fact their father, that they were indeed brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of the same father. Christian education-at home, in the classroom, in churchcontinues Christ's role of enabHng people to relate to God as a Father. As the General,Catechetical Directory states. ;'The supreme purpose of the incarnation of tlt.e Word and of the whole economy of salvation consists in this: that all men be led to the fa'ther. Catechesis, therefore, since it must help to an ever-deeper understanding of this plan of love of the heavenly father, must take care to show tha~ the supreme meaning of human life is this: to acknowledge God and to glorify him by doing his will, as Christ taught us by his words' and by the example of his life, and thus to come to eternal life" (41). The effort of Christian educat1ors--of whom none are' more important than mothers and fathers-is to help people to realize the love God' has for each person, and to respond to that love with deep trust and affection. In a sense it is to make real in relation to God what Gene said of his father: "When I hear ,the word 'father' ... it matters."
