Two Delegates At Girls' Parley

Ecclesiastical Bees Buzzing

Rev. Martin Buote, Diocesan Chaplain of the Catholic Committee on Girl Scouting and Camp Fire Girls, of St. Joan of Arc Church, Orleans, and Mrs. Theodore J. Aleixo of Taunton, diocesan chairman of the committee, represented the Fall River Diocese at the Second National Conference of the National Committee for Girls Organizations sponsored earlier this month by the United States Catholic Conference in Detroit. The three-day conference was hosted by the Detroit Archdiocesan Catholic Committee and consisted of general sessions and workshops at which procedures for presenting the various religious youth and adult awards programs were exchanged and discussed by the delegates representing 25 states. Also discussed was local implementation of national plans of cooperation between the United States Catholic Conference and the Girl Scout and Camp Fire organizations. Among conference speakers were Cardinal John Dearden, Archbishop of Detroit; Bishop Michael F. McAuliffe, of the diocese of Jefferson City, Mo.; Helen Brady, director of national and international relations of the Girl Scouts; Mrs. John Molyneaux, national representative of the Camp Fire Girls; and Rev. John Endejan, chairman of the national Committee for Girls' Organizations. The next national conference is tentatively scheduled for 1981 in Houston, Texas, and also in the planning is a series of regional conferences. Father Buote and Mrs. Aleixo will present a report on the conference to the Diocesan Committee on Girl Scouting and Camp Fire Girls at a June meeting in preparation for a general workshop in the Fan for Catholic leaders in Girl Scouting and Camp Fire. .

Three of four Ecclesiastical Bees testing knowledge of "chutCh vocabulary" in matters to do with Mass, the sacraments and other areas of Catholic life have been held as part of school observance of the diocesan jubilee.

John Magnani 'Bishop Daniel A. Cronin presided earlier this month at a funeral Mass for John Magnani, father of Father John V. Magnani, pastor of St. Mary's Church, Taunton. The Mass was celebrated by Father Magnani at St. Mary's Church, North Attleboro, with a large number of diocesan priests as. concelebrants.

Ff\THER BOUSQUET

Father Bousquet Jubilee Father Roland Bousquet, STL, will mark his silver jubilee of ordination at a Mass of thanksgiving at 5 p.m. Sunday at St. Stephen .Cburch, Attleboro, where he is pastor. Concelebrants will include Father Horace J. Travassos, assistant chancellor, and Father Raymond P. Monty, secretary to the diocesan tribunal. Father Monty will also be homilist. The congregation will include parishioners, friends, relatives and members of other parishes Father Bousquet has served. Music will be under the direction of Kevin Birch. A testimonial banquet will follow the Mass. The jubilarian, a Fall River native, was born Nov. 8, 1927, the son of Ephraim and Lillian (Bourque) Bousquet. He attended Blessed Sacrament grammar school and Msgr. Prevost High school before entering the Seminaire de Philosophie and the Grand Seminaire de Montreal, where he earned his licentiate in

sacred theology, magna' cum laude. After ordination on May 22, 1954, Father Bousquet served as associate pastor at Notre Dame parish, Fall River, St. Joseph, New Bedford and St. Jacques, Taunton. With his appointment as secretary to the diocesan marriage tribunal, he resided at S1. Louis de France parish, Swansea, from 1971 to 1972. He was then named administrator of St. Roch parish, Fall River, where he served until 1976, when he was named to his present assignment. Father Bousquet has served the marriage tribunal in a variety of capacities and is at present a defender of the Bond. He has also directed the New Bedford pre-Cana program, written for The Anchor, served as a member of the board of examiners for the clergy and has been chaplain to Taunton State Hospital.

Founder Says Cursillo Spreading

Madame p'resident?

-LOS ANGELES (NC) - The cursillo movement continues to spread its mesage of Christian' commitment worldwide, Eduardo Bonnin, its co-founder, reported. He was in California for regional and state Cursillo meetings.

CHICAGO ~C) - Ellen McCormack, the Long Island housewife who ran for president in 1976 as a pro-life candidate, may run again in 1980. She. has authorized establishment of an "exporatory Democratic presidential campaign committee" on her behalf for a possible pro-life campaign during the Oemocratic primaries and has said she will decide in the next fe'o/ months whether she will actq.ally run. Her aimouncement came during the first National Pro-Life Political Action Conference, held in Chicago.

The Cursillo momentum is particularly strong in the United States, he said. An estimated 750,000 Americans have made a Cursillo de Cristiandad (Little Course in Christianity), according to Eduardo Kalbfleisch of New York City, U.S. national coordinator who accompanied Bonnin. A business man at Palma on the Spanish island of Mallorca, Bonnin, other laymen and priests, guided by a bishop, spent five years preparing for the first cursillo, given in January 1949 to counter immorality and religious indifference. .

The intensive three-day cursillo programs quickly spread through the Spanish-speaking world. The first U.S. cursillo was held in Texas in 1957 by two Spanish airmen training there. English-language cursillos began in 1961. The philosophy of the movement, .Bonnin said, is that "it is possible to share yourself at a supernatural level, as well as at a human level." He added that a cursillo does not teach anything new but "allows a participant to experience what he already knows." Bonnin said that cursillos have had a great influence on movements such as charismatic renewal and Marriage Encounter. ..

Ex-Police Chief Lands'in Jail SANTA ANA, Calif. (NC) Former Santa Ana Police Chief Edward J. Allen ended up in what used to be his own jail after he was arrested with 11 other anti-abortion demonstrators for a two-hour occupation of an abortion clinic. Allen, who is retired, and the others were charged with criminal trespass at Dr. Edward Allred's Family Planning Associates Medical Clinic in Santa Ana. He was released from jail and will stand trial later. The demonstration was "a matter of conscience," said Robert L. Sassone, an attorney representing the protestors. "We are working toward the time when a morally and spiritually alert court will reinstate the abortion law as it was a few years ago," he said. "We believe that protests of this type will hasten that day."

the living word

themoorin~ Total Renewal There certainly is a new 'spirit in the Church and it's not merely the result of the election of a Polish pope. It's much deeper and more profound than that historic happening. It is to be found in the signs of renewal and revival that are flowing from the efforts and labors of Vatican II. The grassroots movements of the Charismatic Renewal, Cursillo, Marriage Encounter, Echo, Tech and Emmaus are but reflections of this active spirit that is penetrating the Church as it brings to life the teachings and documents of the Council. It is the spirit of hope that is seen in various parish prayer and study groups; it is the spirit of understanding that is growing as more and more Catholics daily read the Bible; it is the spirit of faith among those who are seeking to bring the millions of baptized b,rothers and sisters back to the pews. Yet, despite the great progress that has been made, there are still pockets of resistance dedicated to maintenance of the status quo, for whatever that might mean in the reality of today's world. Unfortunately, many of these obstacles to renewal are clerical. There are some priests who just do not want anything new to upset them and their tidy and tried way of life. To be certain, this is not the case in the majority of parishes. However, there are still many holdouts who attempt in evry way possible to block efforts to implement the decrees of Vatican II, even those marked with genuine discernment and 路enthusiastic dedication. Yet it is these same people who wail and moan as they see the emptiness of their churches on Sunday and the lack of cooperation by families in parish activities. The litany of woe could be chanted without end. Invocations of pleas are many; responses are minimal. It is indeed a very strange situation when a given local parish just refuses to. be part of an ongoing process of evangelization and renewal. This should not be the situa路, tion. With the shortage of priestly vocations, many bishops cannot heal the hurts, or they would have priestless churches. What then can be done? The burden, and it is indeed a difficult one~ rests both upon the shoulders of the Ordinary of a diocese and the laity involved in such distress. Bishops should -be constantly persistent ,.in their efforts to seek total parish renewal in their dioceses, as exemplified by our own Jubilee Day of Deyotion. In every way possible, bishops should make every effort to point out that what is now taking place in the church is of the church and has her blessing.' Parishioners who hunger for renewed faith should be respectfully persistent in their attempts to bring the teachings of the church to fulfillment in their parishes. In a spirit of loyal cooperation, they should share in current parish activities, always trying to expand and develop new ministries that will encourage worship and prayer that the lost sheep might once again find shepherds who really do care. Many of today's social ills and moral conflicts could 'truly be solved in the course of efforts to renew parishes still stubbornly clinging to a past that lacks love, a present that lacks faith, a future that lacks hope.

Getting Unmarried Hazardous To Health By Amomette Bosco

A mother with three young children, recently divorced, was telling me her troubles. She had insomnia, a serious skin disturbance, a new ulcer, had had an automobile accident and was getting frequent headaches. I didn't have to be a physician to recognize that her array of new physical health problems were reactions to the- stress of her single-with-responsibilities life situation. Out of curiosity, I researched how much studying had been done on the relationship beween being formerly married and one's state of health. I found a dismal picture, as this mosaic of the results of several researches shows: ......: Sixty-three percent of divorced wives have experienced medium to high trauma, as measured by such indices as sleeplessness, memory loss or poor health at some point during the divorce process; - Over 40 percent of individuals filing for divorce reported five or more symptoms of mental health disturbance; - Divorced or separated women were more likely to admit to "worrying all the time" or of having fears of an impending nervous breakdown than any other group '- male or female - in the population; - A study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics indicated that the divorced had more psychiatric symptoms and to a more serious degree than did persons of other marital status;

- Divorced and separated women scored highest of any group on questions dealing with the stressfulness of life; - In terms of the overall mortality rate, as well as the rate of death due to motor vehicle and other accidents, suicide and death from homicide, the rates are higher for the divorced of both sexes than for any other marital status. For divorced men, the suicide rate is 4.2 times higher, and for divorced women, 3.5 times higher than for married people. To mention specific studies, a sampling of 4,000 divorced persons in California, cited in "The American Way of Divorce, Prescriptions for Change," by Sheila Kessler, showed that divorced persons are more likely to report physical disabilities, chronic illness, neurosis, depression and isolation. A study done by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, called "Selective Symptoms of Psychological Distress," stated that anxieties to women who are divorced were significantly higher and that they evidenced symtoms of nervousness, inertia, insomnia, trembling hands, nightmares, perspiring hands, fainting, headaches, dizziness and palpitations. Dr. Uri Bronfenbrenner, a noted expert in family life studies from Cornell University, did a study of 70 families and reported again that single mothers who worlt, made statements about stress twice as often as mothers from intact families. A few months ago, I attended a conference on stress and had

the good fortune to have Dr. Robert Rackel at my table for lunch. He is a family practitioner who heads what is called the ,best stress management clinic in the country at the University of Iowa College of Medicine. He said that more single than married people die from pneumonia, tuberculosis, cirrhosis of the liver, syphilis, influenza and various forms of violence. Hypertension is also more common among the unmarried or previously married, especially young widows and newly divvorced. In the first year after a divorce, said Dr. Rackel, divorced people have 12 times more illnesses than people who are married. The group in greatest jeopardy are divorced men. When it comes to coronary heart disease, strokes, cancer of the lung or stomach, the rate for 9ivorced men is almost double that of married men. It's almost three times as high for hypertension, five times as high for suicide, seven times as high for cirrhosis of the liver. Even driving a car is more dangerous for the divorced male, three times as fatal, as for married men. It seems that in spite of the concept of single men as carefree bachelors, facts show that this state is actually dangerous to their health. Such statistics have led Dr. James J.Lynch of the Psychosomatic Clinic at the University of Marylancl Medical School to conclude: "Lone~ liness is clearly a major contributor to premature death in this country."

REFUGEES IN DISTRESS: Over 400 Vietnamese refugees are towed by a landing vessel from the USS Robert E. Peary in the South China Sea, about 400 miles south of Thailand. As people continue to flee Vietnam, other countries are feeling the strain of resettling them. (NC Photo)

Refugee Program WASHINGTON (NC) - The problems involved in caring for refugees from Vietnam and elsewhere in Indochina have become so severe that, according to reactions from government officials and resettlement agencies, even good news seems like bad news. The most recent gob<! news, these officials agree, is that Vietnam has announced it is ready to release up to 10,000 refugees a month directly to countries such as the United States, France and Australia which have resettled hundreds of thousands of refugees since 1975. Such a step would probably sharply reduce the number of "boat people," refugees leaving Vietnam in small, fragile boats.. But the bad news is that refu-

gee experts seriously doubt whether Vietnam and the receiving countries are physicaIly capable of handling such large numbers each month. At the same time, the U.S. refugee program is facing several legal and financial crises. In the coming months, the United States will have to deal with a steady flow of Indochinese refugees from three sources: - The 250,000 people now in temporary camps in Southeast Asia, - The refugees, particularly relatives of refugees already in the United States, to be released each month. - A continuing, though probably smaIler, flow of "boat people." Don Hohl of the U.S. Catholic Conference office of l\:tigration and Refugee Services, said that people who do not fit into the categories for emigration to be agreed on by Vietnam and the receiving countries will leave on boats. In the short term, the U.S. coordinator for refugee affairs, Ambassador Dick Clark, says the U.S. program will run out of money on June 1.' Congress is working on a supplemental appropriations bill, but is not likely to complete action until at least the end of June. The State Department is also trying to untie other funds to cover the shortfaIl. Unless funds are found, Clark said the movement of refugees out of Southeast Asia will stop and some boats may be pushed back out to sea where some refugees would drown. John McCarthy, director of· USCC Migration and Refugee Services, told NC News that the

USCC has guaranteed the U.S. government that it will move half of the refugees scheduled to come into this country even without federal money. . The usec has resettled about half the Vietnamese refugees in the United States. McCarthy said that between cash reserves and cutting expenses in diocesan refugee programs, the usee can pay for the needed transportation. He said other refugee agencies will do their best to do the same. In the long term, the usce and other voluntary agencies are relying on a proposed overhaul of refugee law offfered by the Carter administration and Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) to make resettlement more orderly. 'But Hohl said Congress may not pass the bill by Oct. 1, the beginning of the next federal fiscal year. There is no organized opposition to the bill, Hohl said, but opposition could appear at the last minute. At the same time, he said, the ,bill faces a slow congressional process and several recesses that could delay passage. The proposed bill would broaden the political and geographic definitions of refugee and aIlow 50,000 refugees into the United States each year, compared with 17,400 under current law. The bill would allow the president to let iInOre than that 50,000 refugees a year into the country with Congress' agreement. The administration has sought appropriations for the transportation and resettlement of 120, 000 refugees in fiscal year 1980.

Says Social Justice Is P路reached, Not Practiced

Iy &V.

ANDREW M.

GREELEY

The church has finally won its battle with its lay teachers. The Supreme Court has ruled (with Mr. Justice 'Brennan voting against the church, as he always does) that Catholic teachers are not covered by the provisions of the NationalI,.abor Relations Act. Since public school teachers are not covered by the act either, and since they have established their ability to o~ganize unions

nonetheless, one imagines that the hierarchy has not heard the end of Catholic teachers' unions - though now it will have to deal, in all mankind, with a militant union, probahly an affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers, presided over by that militant anti-Catholic, Albert Shanker. Cardinal Cody's victory may well turn out to be a Pyrrhic one for Catholic schools.. . I have been persuaded by the legal scholar, Professor H. Douglas Laycock, that even though the court ducked the constitutional issue, precedents are overwhelming for applying the freedom of worship clause to

the teachers' union case. Doubtless we can expect the church's lawyers to push the question as much as they can to make the church immune from as many laws (such as the copyright laws protecting church musicians) as possible. But it is not edifying to see the church going to court to engage in union busting. As far as the archdio(:ese of Chicago is concerned,' that is surely the goal. There is less interest in protecting the freedom of worship clause of the Constitution than there is in eliminating the teacher's union. The Catholic church, then, persists in its historic pattern of preaching about

social justice to others and refusing to practice it itself. The "Call to Action" shopping list of the demands of justice that should be imposed on other institutions stands revealed for what it is - hypocrisy. There are Some church leaders who insist that they are not anti-union and are prepared to engage in collective bargaining with their employees so long as the federal bureaucracy is not meddling in the sensitive issue of Catholic education. The behavior of the Internal Revenue Service unfortunately gives some prima facie support for this position. But if the church leaders are sincere and I

think some of them are, but most of them are not - they will promptly set up either in their own diocese or nationally a voluntary version of the National Labor Relations Board to protect the human rights of church employees to organize and to bargain collectively. If such an agency is not established - and I personally believe there's about one chance in 10 million that it will be - then the church will be in the bizarre position of having won a major victory over the human rights of its own employees within a week of Pope John Paul's issuing a major encyclical defending human rights.

Confessio'n~ by Computer: What W,e'v,e B,een N,ee路ding Iy MARY CARSON

The Church really ought to apply modem management techniques to some of its problems. Just compare the empty churches at confession time, to the lines of cars wating at dawn for gas stations to open. The difference is simply in how the situations are managed. Oil companies have created the fear that the world will run out of fuel right in the middle of your summer vacation. And so they have people willingly

waiting in line to pay an exorbitant price for fuel they have imported because they have ex-. ported our own fuel at an even higher price. Why can't such techniques be used by the Church? When was the, last time you saw fines outside a confessional? Those lines could be around the block if the Church operated like the oil companies.

cuss arms control issues and support the treaty. But, just as the administration faces a tougher Senate fight over SALT than over the Panama Canal, the churches will find it more difficult to influence the SALT vote. One reason is the highly technical nature of the treaty, but the major problem may be that while there was virtually unanimous support for the Panama Canal treaties within the re-

ligious community there is sharp division over SALT II. The majority of church groups support SALT II, arguing basically, that it does not go far enough in limiting nuclear weapons, but is still worth having. But the major SALT discussion in the churches, especially the Catholic Church, so far has involved SALT supporters and a small group of Christian pacifists who believe the treaty

legitimizes nuclear weapons and nuclear war and will send the arms race along a new路 path, emphasizing technology instead of numbers. The most visible organization taking this approach is Pax Christi, a Catholic pacifist group; the group's most visible spokesman is Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit.

Canal treaties in 1978; the Carter administration understands this and is relying on the churches to play a similar role in winning Senate ratification of the second Stategic Arms Limitation Treaty. Church action on SALT II has been built on the Panama Canal experience. Twenty-four religious denominat~ons and groups, including the U.S. Catholic Conference, have formed the Religious Committee for SALT to dis-

The debate will be difficult because of its moral ambiguity.

Cursillo Dear Editor: lin regards to the Cursillo Region I encounter the weekend of June 15-17 at Assumption college in Worcester. It promises to be a fantastic weekend for Cursillistas from throughout New England and New York State. May I enjoin Christians everywhere for their prayerful support. As we gather in the presence of Christ, the main ingredient will be worship and praise to God. It would be much appreciated if we felt the support and prayers of all of our brothers and sisters especially from the Fall River Diocese. Thank you. John O. Rego Swansea

Churc;h History Is Studied at Theology Parley The Sixth Theology Institute for clergy of the Diocese of Fall. River took place last week at La Salette Center. for Christian Living, Attleboro. The theme, American Catholicism in Growth and Crisis, was expertly addressed by Msgr. Joseph N. Moody, presently professor of history on the faculties of St. John's Seminary, Brighton, and Boston College. Msgr. Moody developed the study of the history of the Church in the United States during four conferences. Bishop Carroll, the first Bishop of- Baltimore, was a key figure in the speakers's treatment of the heroic dimension, a review of the missionary impulse that created the Church in America. Msgr. Moody reflected on the state of colonial America, especially as preserved in reports of the earliest Jesuit missionaries. These reports, required by superiors, are some of the best and often the only records of the development of Catholicism in the colonial states and the West. Celebrating his 50th anniversary of ordination, Msgr. Moody underscored the immense work of the Church involved during the period of immigration, when, reflecting the American spirit of welcome, she helped thousands to enter the mainstream of American life despite the difficulties of adapting to an alien culture. In the Church, immigrants found a touch of tbeir homelands, easing the development of their new American identity, while preserving their faith. Although a native of New York, Msgr. Moody commented that he knows the northeast very well, having served as a Navy chaplain and as the commissioning chaplain of the USS Massachusetts. Making note that he was celebrating his 75th birthday during the year of the diocesan diamond jubilee, the historian reflected on the problems particular to immigrants working in the mills of Fall River. He described Fall River as a "microcosm" of the immigrant Church,

By Father John Dietzen Q. several years ago I read that Jewish archeologists discovered evidence of writings relating to Jesus dating from the first century. These were to be released later but I've heard nothing on the subject since. Have· you any knowledge of what these might be? (Calif.) A. During the past few decades archeologists have discovered numerous writings apparently dating from around the time of Our Lord.

giving much credit to national parishes for sustaining morale and faith, while encouraging social companionship that facilitated the entry into life in the New World. Msgr. Moody noted his interest in having priests of Fall River and New Bedford, knowledeable in local parish histories, 'share their reflections with him. His final area of concern was that of the Church of the 20th century, involved in the tumult of two world wars. The threats of Americanism and Modernism, he commented, were occasions for much maturing of the Church in the United States. The sixth in a series of annual theology institutes for priests was part of the continuing education program for clergy, directed by Rev. Michel G. Methot. It offers the busy priest time to live, study, discuss, pray and grow with his brother priests. The 1979 Institute was especially appreciated for the opportunity it afforded to be in touch with the American church story in general and local stories in particular.

considerable attention and respect was naturally afforded anything that would enlighten us about Christ. Full -texts of many documents have been handed down, even though the original, or even a very early manuscript, had never been found. Certain modern discoveries seem to give us parts of some of these documents, but contain nothing specifically about Jesus that we did not already know. Certain texts of the Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered after World War II in the southern part of the Holy Land, speak of a Teacher of Righteousness. Some conjectured at first that this teacher might be Jesus, or at least a man closely connected with him. Experts now agree that this is not so. The Teacher of Righteousness, whoever he was, died some decades before Our Lord, and apparently had no more connection with him than any of the other holy men living in first century B.C. P~es­ tine. Q, Several years ago my son, a Catholic, married a girl who had been baptized a Methodist and had been previously married. Her first husband abused her and their child, which caused her to divorce him. When she and my son were thinking about marriage, they went to a priest who told them they could not get married in the Catholic Church because she had been baptized a Methodist, so they ended up being married by a justice of the peace. This is a real heartbreak to me, and I think to him, too. Is there anything they can do to get married in the church? (Fla.) A. There are too many facts missing from your letter for me to give a very helpful answer. The mere fact of her being baptized a Methodist would not create an unsolvable problem unless her first husband were also a baptized Christian. If he were not, a procedure might be possible that would allow the marriage. Other significant factors would be whether her first husband had been married before, what circumstances existed in the first marriage that might suggest the possibility of an annulment, and so on. Presumably a priest consulted by someone like your son would ask all the necessary questions to explore any avenues for marriage in the church. If your son hasn't talked with at least one other priest during the past few years to obtain his opinion, I'd suggest he do that. Sometimes one priest will see a chance where another does not. Questions for this column should be sent to Father Dietzen c/o The Anchor, P.O. Box 7, Fall River, Mass. 02722.


Continued from Page One presentation on the task, the art, and the attitudes of youth ministry. The definition from "A Vision of Youth Ministry" was used: Youth ministry is the response of the Christian community to the needs of young people (age 14 to 18) and the sharing of the unique gifts of youth with the larger community. This includes the twofold goal of individual personal and spiritual growth and participation in the life, mission and work of the faith community. The gathering was reminded that ministry means valuing relationships more than programs. People, not projects, should be the focus of attention. Following the presentation participants divided into small groups to discuss their work, their needs, and possible goals for the future. The 20 people present agreed on the need to provide a training program which would enable parish leaders to work with and for youth. There was also a need seen for a broader sharing of ideas by those already involved in youth ministry. It was pointed out that all this should be undertaken in· the context of ministry to a total parish community. Father Bouchard pointed out that the need for training and sharing had been recognized previously by the Priests' Council and the Youth Ministry Advisory Group (youth and adults from various areas of the diocese). The result of these consultations, he said, points to the next steps to be taken for the development of youth" ministry in the FaIl River diocese.

The Deaf-Mute

Susan Muto

By Father John J. Castelot

By Father Adrian van Kaam

Each account of Jesus' feeding the crowds (Mark 6, 31-44; 8, L-9) is followed by a series of parallel events: recrossing the lake, landing, controversy with Pharisees, dialogue about bread, miracle of healing. This is an obviously artificial structure designed to further Mark's theological purposes. The confusion and misunderstanding which follow each feeding lead up to the opening of a man's ears in one case and of a man's eyes in the other. This fits nicely into the evangelist's overall theme: Without faith Jesus cannot be understood, even by those who physically witness his miracles.

Vatican Council II is a call to spiritual renewal of the whole people of God. In the wake of the council the Holy Spirit inspires many lay people to a new interest in the life of the spirit. The more widespread the interest in spiritual formation, the more urgent is our need for experts. In view of this the Spirit seems increasingly to inspire. lay -persons to devote their life to prayerful reflection on the Catholic foundations of the spiritual life. One such leader is Dr. Susan Annette Muto, fireless research in the Scriptures, Church Fathers, Catholic doctrine and the spiritual masters forms the trustworthy basis of her teaching and writing. After a period of successful work .as editor of the Jewish Chronicle of Pittsburgh, God directed her to Duquesne University's Institute of Formative. Spirituality, where she deepened her understanding of ascetical and mystical theology and became deeply involved in the unique project of the faculty and doctoral students: the systematic scholarly development of a science of formative spirituality. Ms. Muto teaches courses in the art and discipline of meditative reflection and spiritual reading as preparation for and deepening of the life of prayer. She is now executive director of the institute and managing editor of its two journals, Studies In Formative Spirituality and Envoy. Like her colleagues, she considers herself a person called by God to fulfill a ministry in the church. This explains her dedication and that of her colleagues, which goes far beyond the call of duty and is rewarded with an increasing influx of dedicated students, clergymen, religious and lay people. Besides lecturing frequently, Ms. Muto is a prolific author. One of her best known works is "A Practical Guide to Spiritual Reading." Most recently she published together with this writer, "Tell Me Who I Am: Questions and Answers on Christian Spirituality" and "Am I Living a Spiritual Life?"
