Freedom from ··Forced Abortions The latest development in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts concerning the ongoing abortion controversy is scheduled for de.:>ate in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, June 5. The members will consider the various proposals drawn up by the Social Welfare Committee of the Legislature. The recent Supreme Court abortion decisions greatly limit the power of a State to protect unborn human life by forbidding or restricting abortions. However, it should not be alleged that these cases hold that a woman has a 'constitutional right to fGrce a doctor, hospital or the general public to provide her with an abortion. To hold that State legislatures are limited in their power to forbid abortions is not that same as holding that state legislatures are required to provide abortions. Recently Senate President Harrington and House Speaker Bartley proposed legislation.

that hospitals, health facilities, doctors, hos. pital staff persons and hospital employees be protected in matters concerning abortions and related matters.This legislation was referred to the Social Welfare Committee of the Massachusetts legislature. The Social Welfare Committee has amended the original proposals and has limited protection from compulsory anti-life activities to ~hose hospitals and health facilities said to be under the direction of a recognized religious order or group. One of the dangers of such limited protection is that it omits any hospital or health facility which might object to abortion and related anti-life activities for moral reasons (as distinguished from' religious reasons). Opposition to abortion is not limited to the ten:ets of one religious faith. A further danger is the contention that these . contemplated revisions may place any hospital

Appeal Nears $800,000; Closes Tomorrow Noon The 1973 Catholic Charities Appeal climbed to $791,882.68 today with many incomplete parish returns and special gift donations still to be reported. The official closing of the Appeal is 12 noon tomorrow. This should see mqre parishes exceeding their 1972 final totals. Appeal Headquarters in Fall River has issued the final' notice. Joseph H. Feitelberg of Somerset, this year's diocesan lay chairman, said: "All special gifts, priests' donations and parish contributions must be at the office' by 12 noon tomorrow to be included in the final official 1973 tabulation. I urge that all retl,lrns be made in person to insure proper accreditations. The final Appeal total will be published in next week's edition of The Anchor. I hope all the parishes will be "over the top" by tomorrow." 53 have surpassed their 1972 final totals in this year's Appeal. These parishes are members of the Honor Roll. The new members added to the Honor Roll are: Holy Ghost, Attleboro; St. Mary, Seekonk; St. Mary,

or health facility at the whim of a single antilife member of its staff. The possibility exists, opponents of the proposed revision maintain, that such hospitals and health facilities will be deprived of administrative flexibility. Opponents of the' revision proposed by the Social Welfare Committee are asking rightto-life groups to register their objection to the Social Welfare proposals and to register their support of a bill which states that no hospital or health facility need be required to perform abortions, sterilization or engage in related anti-life procedures and which also gives protection to conscience whether formed because of religious tenets or moral principles. A redrafting of the Social Welfare proposals would achieve, proponents contend, selfdetermination for the individual hospital. or health facility. Each hospital or health facility would decide by vote of its governing body whether its policy would be to perform abortions or not.

Bishop Listens to' Parents; Rejects Advice to Close Seminary RICHMOND (NC)-Bishop John J. Russell has rejected the suggestions of his official advisers in favor of the pleas of a lay group and decided to keep the Richmond diocesan high school seminary open. Bishop Russell said St. John Vianney Preparatory Seminary, located near Richmond, is a "vital part of our program of seeing that our people have sufficient priests to meet their pastoral needs in the years ahead." Both the diocesan consultors and the Council of Priests had advised the bishop' to close the seminary, with the council recommendating it be closed in June. The Council of Priests' action drew strong protest from the seminarians' parents who heard of it in a letter from Father Thomas F. Shreve, seminary rector, who had said it was "unrealistic to think that the bishop will not follow this recom路 mendation." Parents held protest meetings, wrote and phoned the bishop and even sent telegrams to Pope Paul VI urging that the seminary be kept open. General Criticism . Reasons given for closing the seminary included the relatively small number of graduates who eventually reach the priesthood from high school seminaries, the mounting cost, and general criticism of the concept of high school seminaries. Bishop Russell, who founded St. John Vianney in 1960, acknowledged that when he began considering the possible closing several weeks ago, "there seemed to be valid reasons for discontinuing it." I "Then as things developed," he said, "it became apparent 'to me that. reasons for keeping the seminary open far outweighed those for closing it."

Among those reasons, he said, are the high priority. the Church. must give to encouraging vocations to the priesthood and the "indication that the percentage of its alumni continuing in advanced studies for the priesthood is increasing." Percentage Increasing The 'bishop said that "while the -number of young men in advanced studies for the diocesan priesthood is much smaJler than we would like," 33 of the 84 men from the diocese who are "now in college seminaries or theological studies attended the seminary. This, he said, "must be a major consideration for keeping St. John's open."

lease of this column. With regard to the first question, I am satisfied,in my own mind that the growers' opposition to the hiring . hall was the factor in their decision to break away from the UFWU and'settle with the Teamsters. Time magazine has reported (May 7, 1973) that "most growers are eager to get rid of the UFW at nea"ly any price." Why? Why did the grow-. ers doublecross the Farm Workers Union and hastily sign contracts with the Teamsters ~'a.fter only a single day of formal bargaining" during which, Chavez charges, no genuine farm workers sat at the negotiating tableT' The answer is obvious: Not only because the supposedly aUpowerful Teamsters were willing to settle for a smaller economic package. But because the Teamsters as T'ime has put it, ':also allowed growers to bring b,ack the labor contractors who hhdpick groups of workers for a day's labor," whereas Chavez' collective bargaining contracts had banned the contractors and set up union hiring halls to supply field workers to the growers in an orderly way and on the basis of seniority. Phony Organization The labor contractors (with whom the Teamsters, to their shame, have recently signed a master agreement) and with few exceptions, the growers as- well, have bitterly opposed the hiring hall system as a matter of principle. 'That's putting 'it very mildly. John Gregory Dunne, author of one of the better books on the history of Chavez' union reported in ,1967, at the height of the so-called Delano table grape dispute, that "throughout the ( 'Joaquin) Valley, contrac-

They are currently trying to do just that, but I think they are wasting their time, and are court'ing nothing but trouble. Chavez, for his part, is still fiercely committed to doing away with the labor contracting set-up and replacing it with the hiring hall. He considers this a non-negotiable issue. I completely agree with him in this regard. To be sure, the present UFWU . hiring hall system has some kinks in it as undoubtedly can be-and, in fairness to the growers, should be-made to operate more ~ficiently. ,It's one :thing, ,however, to improve the operation of the hiring hall system, but something else again to abolish the system at this late date and return to the labor-contract' ing set-up. Teamsters Deal Disgraceful Chavez wili never agree to go the latter route.

Says Biblical Laws Difficult to Apply ATLANTA (NC) -'Evangelist Billy Graham said he is studying how ~ar a m'inister can, go in applying old biblical laws that are no longer compatible in modern secular society. "In the Bible, people 'were stoned to death for kidnapping, murder, fornication, adultery and a number of other crimes. I am sure no person today would say this is what we ought to do," Graham told a news' conference. It would be easy to apply biblical teachings in the governing ::If a Christian society, Graham said, then added that he knew' of no town in America where the majority' -of people were "real, believing ChrIstians."

Prime Minister Visits Pope Paul VABCAN CI1Y (NC) - Less than a monihafter Australia and the Vatican agreed to establish full diplomatic relations, Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam paid a courtesy call on Pope Paul VI. The premier, accompanied by his wife, visited the Vatican and met privately with the Pope for more than 30 minutes. Because the vi<;it was private, there was no official ceremony of state. However, he was greeted with red-carpet treatment once inside Vatican City and Pope Paul also received Mrs. Whitlam and others accompanying the prime minister after ,the private meeting. No details of the conversation between the prime minister and the Pope were disclosed. However, it was considered certain that the unsettled conflict in Southeast Asia was 'among the topics discussed. The opening of full diplomatic relations between Australia and the Vatican was announced March 27 as a means' of "pro'moting mutual frie'ndly rel'ations." The agreement provides that AustraHa will name an ambassador to represent it at the Vatican, and the Vatican will be represented by a pronuncio in Australia. To date neither side has nominated candidates for the new posts. ' Whitlam flew into Rome after -a week's visit in London. Just before leaving London, the Australian prime minister told newsmen that his country and New, Zealand planned to appeal to the International Court, of Justice if France contfilUes to" carry out plans for new nuclear tests in the Pacific.

Communications June 3 has been designated as World Communications Day. The question asked is-What is the message of the' media? ' All must recognize that the media cannot survive economically unless they satisfy their audience.' And every viewet is the audience. The one who reads, who listens, who sees-this is the audience who has, therefore, a re- sponsibility for what is produced. Vatican Council II has said: "All who of their own free choice make use of these media of communications as r~aders, viewers or listeners, have special obligations. For a proper choice demands that they fully favor those presen~ tations that are outstanding for their" moral goodness, their knowledge and their artistic or technical merit. They ought, however, to avoid those that may be a cause ot occasion of spiritual harm to themselves, or that can lead others to dangers through base example, or that hinder desirable presentations and promote those that are evil. To patronize such presentations, in most instances, would merely reward those who use the media only for profit." The obligation is on every person, then, to promote «The ea roth and approve ~hat is a positive value in the media and to declares Gods protest and let one's voice be heard at what tears down values of decency and brotherhood and honor. handiwo,.~~, . .'

,Pope Appeals F'or Vocations VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI has called on "the young ilind the not-so-young" to answer God's invitation to accept religious vocations. In a message published in connection with the 10th World Day of Vocations May 13, the Pope stressed that Catholics are free to choose a Religious life or to reject his call because God respects "tft1e freedom of his sons, whom he has created as free persons." , Pope Paul, said God's call to Christians to accept a Religious vocation "has the force and sweetness of an invitation which loses none of its divine power nor taIres anything away from your freedom." The Pope added: "You are free: therefore, decide. As Christ did." . The Pope said: "We say to all of you, most beloved sons, bot!h young and not-so-young, you must not let persons, ideas or events block your choices and your decisions. Why do you hesitate and wait? The image of this world meanwhile is changing repidly. Other groups of men are arriving on this earth. "The Gospel must be announced to all. To the ranks of the poor of yesterday are being added those of, tomorrow. There are and there will 'be the hungry, ,thtose who thirst; the imprisoned and those who are sick in body or spirit. These await you. In Them, Christ awaits you. There is work for all. There is a place ,for you as well."

Oregon's Death With Dignity Bin Dies Quietly SALEM (NC)-A "death with dignity" bill died quietly h~re when a legislative committee interrupted testimony and voted without dissent to table the measure. The action was almost anti. climactic with opponents of the b'ill outnumbering supporting witnesses by nearly 8 to 1. The House legislative committee heard a former Congressman, doctors, a registered nurse, a legislator and others characterize the bill as unnecessary, imprecisely drafted, pagan and potential1y dangerous. Dr. Rober Goldman, a Porto' land physician who specializes in the treatment of cancer patients, told the committee that no legislation is needed to induce terminally ill patients to discuss with their 'doctor their' treatment at "the' end of, the line." One of the first things his patients do after learning their illness is terminal is to request him not to extend their life at the end, Goldman ·testified. But as death approaches, "life becomes more precious even under very difficult circumstances," and the pati(mt almost invariably clings to life for every possible minut,e, he said. At this point, Goldman noted, the wishes of the patient may be at odds with the wishes of his family or others who-under the proposed law-would be legally empowered to request that his death be hastened. In this way, he said, the bill, if enacted, could lead to the deprivation of the patient's rights. 'We Never Know' Dr. Russ.ell Sacco, a Portland physician, testified that doctors routinely diseontinL!e medical procedures as patients approach death. But this is done selectively and as is medically indicated, when the procedures are no longer effective or when the patient is no 'longer able to tolerate them. It is not done to hasten death. Whether at any time a patient has. a chance for recovery, he said,' "we never know." Robert Oliver, appearing for Gov. Tom McCall, said provisions of the bill concurred with the governor's beliefs on death with dignity. The bill would have authorized individuals to execute a document "directing that no maintenance medical treatment be utilized for the prolongation of 'life at such time as he suffers a terminal· illness."

Gives $2 Million To Marquette MILWAUKEE (NC)-A retired Milwaukee industriadist has given Marquette University $2 million to build and equip a' gynasium for students at the Jesuit school here. T/he gift of Evan P. Helfaer, 74, former head of a drug firm here, means that Helfaer has donated a totall of $4 mill'ion to Mar-. quette, including $1.6 million for a theater. The new gymnasium will be used largely for physical education and intramura'l programs, rather than intercollegia'te events, and it will include a swimming pool, basketball, tennis, handba11 courts and track facilities.

Strong Religious Press Is Vital MINNEAPOLIS (NC)-A strong religous 'press is a vital, important part of the Amenican free press, a former presidential secretary said. In an interview, George Reedy called strongly for efforts to maintain and increase the diversity of newspapers in America ~a theme he was to stress in his talk to the joint convention of the Catholic Press Association and Associated Church Press here. Cont'l'ary to popular claims, the number of papers in America has not declined, although competition between papers in major markets has fallen dramatically, he sa/id. This in turn requires the rise of a strong community press to HOLY NAME CHURCH, FALL RIVER take up the slack, according to Reedy, former press secreta,ry to the Ia1te President Lyndon B.

Plan To Build? Low Cost Financing



Services originally were conducted in a tent erected on property acquired on Read Street. Father McNamee and the original 400 who previously had attended St. Joseph and Sacred Heart Churches immediately undertook planning for the construction of a permanent church. Their endeavors reached fruition in 1925 when Bishop Feehan presided at dedication ceremonies of the church and rectory at Read Street and President Avenue. The new parish continued to grow under the guiding hand of Father McNamee, and, in 1938,

"This has come about, he said, "because of the recognition by the ministerial Church that the layman has his own distinctive mandate by Baptism to teach, minister and lead in the name of Christ. "Without any kind of doubt, I can see a layman heading this missionary council in the future," the seasoned missionary said.

Bobbie' Prov,es Ha·ppiness P,ossibl,e' wit,h Handicaps

Install First LPN As Nurses' Head

Roberta, the youngest of my eight children, is retarded. Shortly after she was born, there were different reactions . from friends. When told Bobbie was a Mongoloid, a wellmeaning business associate of my husband's said, "Well, fortunately they usually , don't live long. It's just as as the priest started to read the well. They can't amount to Gospel. She wrapped herself around much." It's true that many me,-snuggled her head into the Mongoloids are born with physical defects that can shorten their lives. Some doctors recommend leaving such disorpers un-



treated and allowing the child to die. Tihese, doctors, anj my husband's well' meaning associate, equate happiness in life with achievement. ,\chieving wealth, social position, or professional status. Mongoloids have Jittle capacity for achievement. Because Bobbie will not achieve these things, they think she cannot be a happy person. As it happens, ,Bobbie has proved these !predictions to be wrong! A birth defect which thrzat, ened her survival when she was an infant, (an opening in the wall of 'her heart) has healed spontaneously, without surgery. As far as any doctor can predict now, she will live a normal lifespan. 'But even more incredible, as a lively six-year-old, Bobbie is the happiest -person I know! Not Cluttered Bobbie's mind is not cluttered ,with problems, or fears. She doesn't worry what others will think; she never considers "what's ,in it for me?" Lf she's -angry, she lets you know ... and gets it out of her system. If someone teases her, she gives him a frown, and says, "Aw, come on ... CUT IT OUT!" That's as much grudge as she is capable of holding; minutes later her sunny smile returns. Much of the time she over- flows with happiness and affection. At Mass last Sunday she was a bit weary. I picked her up,

Newspaper Publishes Abortion Supplement JEFFERSON CITY (NC)-The Catholic Missourian has offered to diocesan newspapers' and interested groups a four-page supplement on abortion entitled "How Far Did the Supreme Court Go?" ' "The .supplement is designed to be educational and to have the widest possible readership appeal," said Father Hugh Behan, editor of the Jefferson City diocesan weekly. "The legal and medical facts are presented and moral viewpoints of Jewish, Protestant and Catholic leaders are included. Many people are not aware of even the legal and legislative implications of the Supreme Court decision," he said.

crook of my neck, completely relaxed. As Father finished the Gospel, Bobbie reaohed over my shoulder, extended her littlc hand to the man in back of me, and whispered, "Peace." She may not understand the word, but she conveys the message. Bobbie comes home from school' eX/uberant. "Yc'u know what, Mommy? We had a birthday Iparty!" Her elation is infectious. The other day, one of our neighbors called to her, "Hi, Bobbie. How are you?" The neighbor rather expected to be i'gnored. ,Bobbie caJled back, "I'm FINE! How are you?" She not only delights in being ... .but sincerely cares how other people are! Bobbie -Loves She's only six years old, yet she's brought deep love to our family, joy t,o the neighborhood, and, I believe, a greater understanding of life to aU who have come in contact with her. Bobbie loves. Bobbie is uninhibited. Her excitement over a dish of ice cream gives more instruction in living than some of the deepest thoughts from the most learned professors. Granted, she grows slowly"develops slowly ... and ,in so doing has given me a greater awareness of a child's growth process, a better education than I could get from a\'l the textbooks in the world. Thus, Bobbie is a teacher. She',)) probably never be a fellow of a great university, yet she has already taught more philosophy, psychology and theology than the world is ready to accept. Possibly this is why some people are afraid qf ret,arded chil~ dren. The message they teach is too powerful, too poignant, too profound for some to face. Next week I'll tell you why I think Bobbie is such a happy person, and how I believe we can all ,learn to ,be happy ... from her.

Catholic Black, White Schools to Merge PINE BLUFF. (NC)-:The student bodies of St. Joseph's School, now predominantly white, and of St .Peter's School here, now predominantly black, will be merged next fall. Auxiliary Bishop Lawrence P. Graves of Little Rock, pastor of St. Joseph's parish, said tentative plans call for pupils in the first four grades to study at St. Joseph's School and for those in grades five - through eight to study at St. Peter's School. Bishop Graves said in a Sunday pulpit letter that Bishop Andrew J. McDonald of Little Rock had ordered the merger. Bishop Graves said "it's obvious that the relationship between black and white is a problem of our whole nation. And this might possibly give some help to solve that problem in the future."


AWARD CEREMONIES: Philip L. Hemingway of St. James Parish, New Bedford, is congratulated by the Rev. Ernest J. Bartell, president of StonehiU College, after presenting Mr. Hemingway with the college's Outstanding Achievement Award. ,Mrs. Hemingway looks on during ceremonies at the Americana Hotel, New York.

Stressed Northwest Bishops Told Church Must Create 'Christ-Centered. Environment' SPOKANE (NC)-The Church's task in family life is "t6 create a Christ-centered environment," a lay representative told the region XII meeting here of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. . Mrs. Doris Gilmore was keynote speaker on the topic, "Christian Marriage and Family Life" at the meeting, wh:ich drew 80 partkipants, including lay men and women, Religious, priests and bishops of the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. It was one of 12 such regional "consultations" being held in place of former national spring meetings of the National Conference of Catholk Bishops. Recommendations from these meetings will be brought to the annual national meeting of U. S. bishops in November, for decision-making and implementation. Mrs. Gilmore of Kennewick, Wash., observed that the role of the Church is not so much in the area of structures as in building a "Chr>ist-centered environment and fostering community interaction and sharing." Human beings "don't change independently," she said, "but in ' groups." Hence the importance of concentrating on the development of a Christian environment ,in the family, and of fostering strong values there. "But just being a family is not enough," Mrs. Gilmore said. 1II11IItllllltllllltlIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlIIIIUUllllllll""""""1II1t1111I1IIIIUllllIIIIIIIlUlIll1IUl"""

"Interaction is ne'eded-praying together, group discussions together, go'ing to Mass together. Young people need to become aware of family values "so that these will be clear when challenges come from their high school and coIlege environments. Mrs. Gilmore, who represents the laity of Region XII on the U. S. bishops' AdV'isory Council, also called on Church leaders to make information available on the risks of physical and emotional damage to younger girls and women who use contraceptive pills' over a long period of time, and she asked for support of the "biHings Method" of natural family planning developed by two Australian doctors and cla'imed by them to be 100 per cent efficient.

Says It's Simple Proces\s To Layer Azalea, Bushes By Joe and Marilyn Roderick

The' time of y~ar has come when azaleas are in bloom; and they are something to see. There is no flowering shrub which has such an overall effect; azaleas supply a-burst of color which is delightful in early Spring. Most of the azaleas can be easily reproduced from healthy mother cookbook, read it carefully and get discouraged at failures. plapts by layering. We have don't I'm sure even Julia Childs has suggested that people re- her off days."

produce their azaleas but we are constantly told that they have no idea how to go about it. The process cannot be simpler and is one which is relatively foolproof. This works with lowgrowing, hushy varieties that can be rooted in the ground while. still attached to the mother plant. Takes Year or Two Merely take a 'branch growJng close to the. ground and away from the front of the bush and bury it in soil an inch or two below the surface. Mound good garden soil over it and place a large rock over it to anchor it in place. Leave it in this position for a year or two and then test it by pulling it up slowly to see whethE;)r or not it is rooted. If it is, it can be cut from the

mother plant and moved to its own location in the gal'den. A better method, but one which I find unnecessary, is to make a thin incision in the branch you select for ·rooting, add a dab of rooting hormone and mound it under soil as in the above. Using this m~thod, my father and I have managed to reproduce almost every variety of azalea we have purchased. I have never attempted to down even my azaleas, but they require airlayering which is another process altogether. The value of being able to reproduce your azaleas cannot be overstressed. Not only do you save money but more importantly you are able to coordinate colors of the same varieties for a greater effect in the garden. In the Kitchen It doesn't seem possible that it was only 15 years ago that I ventured forth ,into the kitchen to learn how to boil more than water. My mother was and is a housewife who didn't encourage her daughter to spend her spare time cooking. Probably, as I look back now, she realized that I would have many years ahead to spend at that. hot stove.

But my husband who encouraged me to learn cooking and atempted to down even my worst concoction, and that helped me start on my kitchen duty with an open mind and an eagerness to .Jearn. This; coupled with a natural' love of cooking that I didn't know I had, made me turn on to the Kitchen rather than turn off.


There'll be a large number of girls facing just this experience when June rolls around and tne month of brides brings forth a whole new batch of' first-time cooks. If I had any "less than sage" advice for these young females just starting out in the kitchen I would say "Get yourself a &ood

KNOW YOUR FAITH God~-The Judge!'

God Judges With Love

"He will come to judge the. ,iving and the dead." With these .Jr like words, Christian creeds jirect our faith to the final ac)ion of Jesus Christ in the mys;ery of salvation.

We know that God will be our Judge. That may not sound like a very happy thought with which to bring to an end this series of meditations on God's titles. But it is very true. And it is, after all, the truth with which our lives will end. It is just as well to face it.





All the other titles we have looked at so far have turned out to be facets of God's love. ChI1istians often forget that fhe sam~ thing is true of God our Judge. His justice and his judgment need not be frightening things, they too are one more side of his all-encompassing love. God our Judge is the same God we have known as Shepherd, Bridegroom and Father. Even in the Old Testament, the day of judgment to come is not a time of terror for God's people. Israel looks forward to it as to a time of vindicat,ion. Those who have trusted in God will not be confounded. All the world will see that they were right~their God is King, and he· will show himself faithful to those he has. chosen.

SHARING OF JOY: "Then shall all the. trees of the wood sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes, ..." A motorcyclist rears up joyfully among trees which seem to share his happiness. NC Photo.

The reaotion to the idea of God's judgment has been and 1 till remains rather gI1im and frightening. For many preachers 1hroughout the ages, it has been the 1:ruth introduced by God and faith to "counterbalance" an ex(essive optimism or smugness , bout being saved. And for many Christians, unfortunately, the linage of God the Judge is best r ut off until tomorrow or forgott3n altogether. In some ways, however, we rlUst deal wHh the idea of a di\ ine Judge. The immediate imJ: ulse is to associate him with the courtroom, the agonizing J: rocess of prosecution and de.f ~nse ane!- th~ uncertarinty in-


valved ·in allowing a jury or judge to sort through the evidenceand pass judgment. If divine Judge and judgment mean anything, they mean none of these things. As Judge, God is the final and only aI1biter of right and wrong, true arid false, law and disorder. More importantly, he 'is the creator of the right, truth and law on whioh justice <is decided. But he is more than Judge too. Self-Knowledge He is the transcendent master of this world, the loving savior of men, and our shepherd and Fa'ther. If Judge "counterbal· ances" these truths to suoh an extent that they are cancelled out or erased, then our understanding of this Judge is faulty. If he is, then our response to him has to be one of gratitude and joy-not fear and trembling. What is dear from this v,iew of God as Judge is the part played by man. Guided by consoience or the demands. growing out of faith, man really knows where he stands with this Judge. Such knowledge of innocence and guilt, of course, is possible even in our human courts, but for various reasons men will insdst on their 'innocence and do everything to avoid being found Turn to Page Seventeen

Hopes Jesuits Will Keep Ignatian Tradition Alive

The Time cover story on the Jesuits was one of the better pieces ,of religious journalism that has emerged in the popular press in the last decade-though since Mayo Mohs took over as religion editor of Time that journal has been remarkably free of the . stereotypical cliches about are "concerned" is obvious changing Catholicism, which enough; they' certainly tell us that tn every one of their press have become part of the releases. It is much more diffi,journalistic conventional wis<10m. One' need only compare the Time article on the Jesu.its with



Gary Wills' notorious Playboy piece (which many say led to the closing of Woodstock Collegeone supposes that Mr. Wills is happy for at least hav,ing gotten his revenge on his novice master). In Time, the complexity, the pluralism, the conflicts, the problems, the possibilities of contemporary Jesuit life were, ,I thought, treated in a sophisticated and balanced fashion. I'm an outsider, of course, and couldn't say for sure, but most of the Jesuits I know were satisfied and even pleased with fhe article. 'New Jesuits'

cult, as a Jesuit sociologist remarked to me somewhat cynicalIy, "to tell what it is that COlicerns them." One thing that does not seem to be on their list of priorities, alas, is concern for responsible, careful, and dispassionate schol·· arshi<p. Gary Wills tells us that John Courtney Murray is pass::! ~indeed, more than that, he was the "theologian of the cold war." No doubt about it, John Murray would have had no place at the Center for Concern. But ·if younger Jesuit scholars wish to fallow the academic fashions of a couple of years ago, they will not cease to be Jesuits or part of the Jesuit tradition for that reason. The real problem for the Society-or so it seems to an uninvited outsider - is whether it can become more pluralistic, more flexible, more sophisticated. in meeting the challenges of ,the contemporary era without at the same time condemning, much less losing, traditions that have held ,it together and made such a glorious contribution to the Church and to humankind.

Regular followers of this column will, I am sure, testify that I observe a similar approa,ch in my writing. Call the Columnist People normally enjoy hearing about specific instances of good liturgies. They want to know of worship experIences which actually "worked." From these successfully creative efforts, they can gain ideas and ~nspiration for their own parish, convent or school situation. Fortunately, those responsible for such fruitfiul programs have been most generous lin sharing these with me over the past four years. On trips for lectures or meetings throughout the nation I am always on the lookout, hoping to discover a unique worshiping community or learn of a particularly powerful liturgy which I can later describe to readers. At this time I would like to invite 'letters from persons who feel they have a liturgical event, or approach which might prove beneficial to other·s. Drop me a note at Holy Family Rectory, 45 West Fourth Street, Fulton, N. Y.· 13069. Please include details and your telephone number.

Process Divine judgment, is, first of all, a continuing, ever-present process. Through conscience and fa'ith, we place ourselves under our own and God's judgment of our infidelity to what is demaned of us. The fiinal judgment will not be a surprise, and we are not meant to live in dread of surprise or hidden evidence that will tip the scales of God's judgment. Secondly, for those who sincerely commit themselves to this Judge who wishes to show mercy rather than punishment, the judgment is one of vindication and salvation. We are not criminals fearful of the crushing verdict of the divine judge. We are his servants, loved ones, sheep, children. Only those who refuse the guidance of conscience and faith "have ,to fear God. But again the judgment 'is already present; the severe sentence of the just Judge will come as no surprise. This somber side to reality and to man's choices about his relationship with .God ~s not one that should instill fear in us, not df cur fidelity is sincere and constant. But it is a reminder that choice Hke judgment is a cont,inual reality. It also makes compassion and efforts for the converslion of sinners more than a pious platitude.
