St. Patrick's To Close Its School in June St. Patrick's parish, Fall River, staffed by the Sisters of Mercy, will close its school in June, ending an educational enterprise that began during the pastorate of Father Michael Cooke, who served the South End parish from 1890 to 1914. The statement of Father James F. Kenney, present pastor of St. Patrick's follows: We have an announcement to make today, which we make with much sadness, affecting as it does, 100 of our parish families and 50 families from other parishes, all represented in our parochial school. It has long been common knowledge that the survival of St. Patrick's School has been precarious, its continuation be-

the living word

themoorin~ Vigil for Vocations As announced in all parishes of the diocese this past weekend, a unique Vigil for Vocations will be held throughout the diocese on the weekend of June 3 and 4. A segment of this special vocations weekend will involve the faithful of the diocese. Parishioners will be asked to join the Vigil by promising to pray on one day each month for one year for vocations to the religious life. Prayer cards for this purpose will be made available at all churches this weekend. This paper urges everyone who attends Mass this weekend, including summer visitors, to become part of this Vigil. Vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, brotherhood and sisterhood are everyone's business. Often in the past it was thought that a vocation was a private affair between a particular individual and God. Fortunately, the unique concept of ministry in the Church is undergoing an evolutionary change. As a result, the concept of vocation is being viewed in a new dimension. The rapid growth of the permanent diaconate in this country is a particularly encouraging factor reflecting this broadened and more realistic notion of vocation. Yet, de· spite this positive sign, the fact remains that many more priests, sisters and brothers are required to serve effect· ively the needs of the Church in the years ahead. Really, what all of us must do is to take the words of Christ to heart. So often we look for gimmicks and miss the message. Christ recommended that we handle the vocation crisis simply by "asking the harvestmaster to send workers into his harvest," by praying for vocations. What was true in His day is equally true today. Somewhere along the line of modem progress we as a church have lost the simplicity and honesty of this message. Now once again we are asked to take those words of the Lore. to heart. The Vigil for Vocations is a reminder of His original request. Let's heed it.

What Price Murder? This past Sunday a local paper carried a display ad for a gynecologist to perform first trimester pregnancy termina·· tions (fancy phrase for abortions) on a parttime basis. In e. punch line the ad emphasized that the position was "very lucrative!" Talk about worshiping the golden calf! Not only do we advertise for a merchant of death but we stress the fact that money is the object of the murders. It is these signs of our times that should make us aware of the fact that abortions have become a big money deaL It is also interesting to note that often those who righteously uphold abortions happen to have a little abortion clinic business on the side. In some situations these little murder mills are indirectly supported by not so guiltless foundations which hide under the cloak of neutrality but in fact are responsible for a definite pro-abortion attitude. Newspapers, it is true, depend upon advertising as their chief source of income. Yet must they become so involved in the profit game that they become effective tools in the hands of those who would sell a life for a buck? In the face of such advertising policies, the voice of protest must not be stifled by threats; truth must not be intimidated by deceit; the heartbeat of life must not be destroyed by murder for a price.

Evangelism and Ecumenism By Father John B. Sheerin, CSP

Evangelism is in the headlines not only because Jimmy Carter, an Evangelical Protestant, is in the White House, but also because the American bishops have launched a national campaign to implement :?ope Paul's apostolic exhortation on evangelization. At the sa me time, there is a new burst of interest in evangelization all through Latin America. Brazil, for instance, has been called an "evangelical showplace" and Argentine evangelicals are even beginning to talk about world evangelization. The movement is a welcome addition to Catholic life. For many years we have encountered the false notion that evangelism is a strictly Protestant concern. 'But evangelism is a sharing the good news that Jesus died and rose for us and that he offers forgiveness of sin and the indwelling of his Holy Spirit to all who accept baptism and the Gospel. Catholic evangelism carefully avoids proselytism, that is, any resort to unfair or dishonest tricks in at"~racting converts to the Gospel. My Paulist confrere, Father Alvin Illig, who heads the U.S. program, draws a sharp distinction between churchgoing Protestants and those unaffiliated with any church. If worken knock at the door of a home they will ask if the occupant is a churchgoer. If so, they say "God bless you and be faithful in your attendance at church." If the person says he or she does not go to church the Catholic evangelist will invite him or her to a Cathoilc meeting. "We begin" says Father Illig,

"with the human condition of loneliness, objection, fright, guilt, the questions of pain and sorrow, life and death, and we view these in the light of the message of Jesus Christ." No sleight-of-hand techniques, no high pressure, no hard-sell approach, simply an invitation to the lonely and the searchers to become part of a believing family. This approach is a far cry from old convert·making methods, which appealed to rational arguments. The new approach is warm, friendly and intimate, as is evident in its motto: "We care: we share." Yet it is more than hearts and flowers. As its brochure says, "There is no true evangelization if the name, the teaching, the life, the promises, the kingdom and the mystery of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, are not proclaimed." The Gospel message reaches full development when the hearer accepts and assimilates it, then makes a sincere commitment to follow it. I find that many Catholics think that ecumenism is dead and that evangelism may prove to be its replacement. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Ecumenism is very much alive but frustrated at top official levels. Members of the AnglicanCathc.~ic and Lutheran-Catholic dialogue groups have been making strides in agreement on points of doctrine, unfortunately Vatican officials are proceeding at snail's pace in taking action on them findings. Christianity needs unity to make progress. Matthew Arnold once wrote: "Two things about the Christian religion must surely be clear to anybody

with eyes in his head. One is that men cannot do without it: the other, that they cannot do with it as it is." This is true more than ever. Secularism was and is a flash in the pan: it cannot give men and women the sense of the holy needed for a happy human life. But Christianity is also disappointing because it speaks not in a clear trumpet tone but in discord. • I' If a Christian leader says "the church teaches," the response in the minds of many Christians is "What church?" ,Christ spoke with authority because his Gospel had unity, Vatican II has helped immensely in bringing Christians together, but much is yet to be done if Christians are to speak in a united voice. Evangelism will help give the unchurched new trust and confidence in Christ, but that confidence will be shaken if Catholic Christians say one thing, Protestant Christians another.

Chapel Blessing on Holiday Bishop Cronin will celebrate Mass and bless the new chapel at Sacred Heart Cemetery No. 2 on Mt. Pleasant St., New Bedford, at noon Memorial Day. An invitation has been extended to the public by Father Ernest E. Blais, cemetery director, to participate in the service. The brick-faced Cape Cod style chapel is primarily designed for use in conducting interment prayers following parish funeral Masses, said cemetery officials. They noted that the majority of families prefer the chapel ceremony to traditional graveside rites and that the prob-

lem of inclement weather is avoided. Memorial Masses will be regularly at the chapel on All Soulo; and Memorial Days. Its furnishings include an organ and chimes are to be installed shortly. An unusual feature 'is interior stained glass windows, artificially lit and protected from exterior vandalism. The altar top, is als~ glass, with space beneath for a ,casket to rest during committal prayers.

THE ANCHOR-·Diocese of Fall River-Thur. May 25, 1978


Historians of the future will ponder the May, 1978

meeting of the American Catholic bishops. The last great battle to provide some sort of justice for Catholic schools was raging on the floors of the Houses of Congress and the leadership of American Catholicism gathered in solemn assembly and agonized over Rhodesia, ERA, birth control (celebrating the 10th anniversary of "Humanae Vitae" kind of like celebrating the anniversary of the sinking of the


Serious studies have been done on the mental outlook needed to be a good parent. Whether they ar,e taken seriously by anyone contemplating parenthood is an open question. Having worked for 23 years raising eight children, I am a bit late but I studied one such article. I now hav,~ documented proof of something I have long suspected. I shouldn't have had any kids. While these articles deal with theoretical attitudes, they seem

About the Pacl<:wood-Moynihan-Roth bill the hierarchs seem to have sai:i nothing at all. The barricades were assaulted and the commanding Officers were somewhere else. Meanwhile, the national PTA sends form letters to all PTA members in the country to send their congressmen on the tax credit issue, and members of the Coalition to Save Public Schools cheerfully spread lies about Catholic schools, serenEl in the confidence that the Church an:l its leadership will continue t:> lie down and play dead. Small wonder that the Co'-

I will be able to go without a full night's sleep for months at a time and go 0,1 cheerfully with my daily task~" knowing that being a good parent requires some sacrifice. 2. When my toddler spills hi ~ milk on the floor and I am wiping it up and he spills the other half on my head, I will gently remind him this is not a good thing to do. 3. When I have almost finished chasing the last kid out the door to catch the school bus and she says she is a pine tree in the school play . . . and needs a costume . . . TODAY . . . . I will take brown paper. bags and crayons and creatively

umbia Broadcasting System feels free to vilify the Catholic Church on the abortion issue all the time ignoring the fact that black opposition to abortion is stronger that that of Catholics. While the bishops bite their tongues, help for friends of educational choice comes from what many would consider an unlikely source, the University of California at Berkeley. Two law professors there, John Coombs and Steven Sugarman, have written an extraordinary book, "Education by Choice: The Case for Family Control."

preme Court in the famous Serrano case, requiring equalization of school expenditures in all school districts in the state. The theory was later rejected for national application by the U.S. Supreme Court on the basis of a very dubious opinion by the reactionary justice, Mr. Powell. But it still applies in California and is one of the most powerful intellectual tools of egalitarianism to be found in American society.

Coombs and Sugarman are radicals. In an earlier book, "Private Wealth and Education," they laid out the theory later adopted by the California Su-

"Education by Choice" is an even more radical book. Arguing basically with the methods and from the traditions of AngloSaxon law Coombs and Sugarman propound the extraordinary, insidious, revolutionary doctrine that the family is the best institution to determine the best in-

whip up an instant tree. 4. Before taking my child to church I'll explain the beauty and wondEr that surrounds Mass, inspiring such reverence that my child will always behave piously and devoutly. 5. ,J will never become angry with my children, because I teach by example. If I yell at them, they will learn to yell. 6. I will always provide them with nutritious, well-balanced meals so that they learn good eating habits. This will prevent the junk-food syndrome during adolescence. 7. My children will always be neatly dressed in clean, properly fitted clothing. 8. Each of my children will have a quiet, well-lighted, suitable place to do his homework . . . and will NEVER study distracted by radio, records, TV or

the phone. 9. When I do not like a teenage fad, I will explain my reasons to my children. They will recognize my wisdom and abandon the fad immediately. 10. When my children are young I will teach them the value of good order and neatness in a home. This training will serve them well - particularly during 'their teenS. 11. Knowing that regular, adequate sleep is important, I will set bedtime schedules that will' be strictly followed . . . even if there is a term paper due the following morning. 12. I will start early to keep the lines of communication open so that my children will always feel free to discuss ALL their problems with me. 13. Following my good example, my children will always be

terest of the child, and that it should make decisions about education. Yet Education by Choice ought to be read by every priest, religious and layperson who is at all serious about the Catholic schools' role as an educational alternative. We will not see a more deftly defined, sharply honed and brilliantly articulated defense of the family's authority and responsibiity in question. It is part of the appalling irony of the contemporary state of American Catholicism that the Church will ignore Coombs and Sugarman's powerful arguments about the importance of the family, while it goes through the ritual motions of launching yet another national campaign on the family.

polite, courteous, responsible and thoughtful. 14. All my children's friends will always be welcome at my home. 15. ·Every day I will be grateful to God for the marvelous opportunity of being a parent. .;:




If you answered "true" to more than half of these, forget it. Don't even babysit. If you answered "false" to more than half of these, at least you have some idea of what parenthood is really like. If you answered "false" to all of these . . . it's too late . . . you're stuck with the kids you are already raising. Just hang in there, do the best you can and don't be intimidated by all the articles that try to convince you that everything you are doing is wrong.

Natural Networks Can Contribute to Mental Health By JIM


One American in seven needs mental health care at some point in his life; at any one moment, 20 percent of the population - particularly the poor, non-whites, women and separated and divorced persons - suffers from depression. These findings by the President's Commissiol1l on Mental Health outline the scope of the problem. ilts recommendations

include more funding for com· munity mental health centers; smaller mental hospitals, com· munity~based centers; trainin{; more mental health profession-· als, and inclusion of menta: health care in national insurance. The commission also offered two approaches of special signi,· ficance for Catholics. It empha.. sized the importance of com, munity support systems such a1l family, - neighborhood, church and voluntary associations in improving mental health; and it recognized that racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds must be considered in mental health matters. Neither point is new. But thE.' commission report marks a rec·

C·ost o,f Clot:hes Necessitates Ca,nny Shopping By MARILYN RODERICK

"It's ridiculous!" groaned. a friend who had just paid. $21 for pants for her 14-year· old son. The rising cost of children's clothes hit me too this week when I bought Jason a suit and the only one I could find wa~ $50, a pretty high price for a

12-year-old Beau Brummel. I should have had a clue the other week when I bought a suit for a one-year-old and found that toddler's togs have risen in price by at least twothirds since the days when I was buying them regularly. Since my son usually exists in cords and alligator shirts, and

I know their cost, it's when deviate from that norm that find prices breathtaking. The only thing to do is to shop for bargains, for which I had no time in the case of Jason's suit. Another enemy of economy is brand names. Our young people are brainwashed and pants that sell for less, look

the same and wear as well are bypassed for B,rand X, which everyone's wearing. With food as well as clothing prices hitting all-time highs, if any readers have suggestions on stretching clothing budgets, by all means share them with us!

How To Wake Up Dear Editor: I thoroughly enjoy Mary Carson's column, and I especially delighted in the one for May 4. Waking up in the morning and following through with getting up had always been my most difficult chore. Alarm clocks or any loud noise totally ruined my day. Perhaps it was the clanging of my parents' alarm when I had to get up extra early to prepare me for the mile and a half trudge to parochial school many years ago, and the after-clang calling: "WILL YOU GET UP," Perhaps it was my late husband's horrid fear of being late for work, hence alarm clocks scattered in most I"ooms of the house. After my husband died I really was desperate and started praying to any saint I could think of, and some that perhaps weren't saints. "Hate to wake up mania" had been with me most of my life. So one very desperate night,

The Other Side Dear Editor: I have been saddened by the somewhat onesided coverage of "Holocaust" by our Catholic papers, the Wanderer excepted. If 29 million persons died, why no mention of the "other 23 million"? And why should this holocaust be so emphasized while other "holocausts" are passed over, esp. those under Communist lUle where millions of Christians have been murdered in Russia, China, the Ukraine, Armen.a. And what about Uganda today? Also, anyone familiar with Germany and its people would say that the Dorf family as depicted in the film,) is not. representative of the average German family in those days. I can attest to the agony of the German people at that time when "speaking up" could mean loss of one's livelihood and even

one's life. And many did protest and suffered the consequences! As to the Concentration Camps: how much do we know of the conditions in our prisons and mental hospitals? I believe a TV presentation of the latter was shown in February. Most viewers of Holocaust would not be familiar with historical elements which led to the rise of Nazism; would not know that Anti-Semitism did not originate in Germany; and would be unaware of the intense post-war efforts on the part of the German Government and the Churches to make amends to the Jewish population.

Christ Fasted Dear Editor: There have been several articles in past weeks dealing with the fact that the clergy have lost touch with the people. Have they not lost touch with themselves? One writer suggests priests walk their parishes. This is a wonderful idea, however, many can hardly make it to their cars. When man partakes in the glory of God, he does not partake in the spirit only but physically also. When Christ was with us He taught us not only to pray but also to FAST. In the Ladder of Divine Ascent, St. John writes ."Satiety of food is the father of fornication; an empty stomach is the mother of purity," Christ fasted and Christ walked.

School Closing Continued from Page One parochial schools - have buffeted St. 'Patrick's as well. Cost escalations of recent origin have forced us to confront the inevitable and acknowledge that problems beyond our fiscal resources preclude the operation of St. Patrick's School beyond the close of the current school year. This decision has been reached painfully, after much prayerful consideration, extensive discussion with the parish school board through evaluation of the fiscal potential of parochial and parental resources and the concurrence of diocesan authorities. . Our sincere thanks are extended to the many who have shared in the effort to maintain St. Patrick's School, not the least of whom are the members of the parish school board and their affiliated workers, for without their devoted concern St. Patrick's School would have been forced to close some years ago. It remains for us now to join together in a oommon effort to resolve the consequences of this change in our parish circumstances by directing our efforts to the welfare of all members of St. Patrick's Parish in a spirit of parish unity and solidarity. May God bless all for the good works of the past and the Holy Spirit inspire us to provide for the needs of the present and the future!

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River,-Thur. May 25, 1978



IChanging Church



By Father Donald McCarthy

By Father Alfred McBride

Someone recently offered this bit of sage advice. "Don't gripe about your church, it might have changed since you were there last time." Within the Catholic tradition these words seem to have relevance as parishes offer innovations such as new kinds of music at Mass, communal Penance services and lay persons distributing Holy Communion and speaking from the pulpit about marriage, social problems, and parish finances. In fact, priests often hear people say they don't go to church anymore because it just isn't the same as it was in those peaceful days before the Second Vatican Council in 1962-65. On the other hand, many priests feel that a greater proportion of Catholics who come to Mass today have an active and personal commitment to their faith than was the case in those complacent days of old. Catholics who are firmly convinced of the abiding presenca of the Holy Spirit speaking in the church through the pope and the bishops seem least likely to turn away from the church in frustration during these days of rapid change. They know that the Spirit will guarantee the church's authenticity, no matter what changes occur. But this does not mean that every new experimental practice can be blamed on the pope or the bishops. When the Second Vatican Council called for renewal, the enthusiastic response throughout the world sometimes left both bishops and average lay persons gasping in dismay. In this age of ra~:>id communication and full media dramatization of a kind of "instant reform" exploded during the past decade. Several more decades will be required to sift the chaff from the wheat. Three areas of Church life stand out as authentic and desirable: 1. The new model of the church as People of God. The laity are now more fully involved in the church's work through pastoral councils and parish councils; through leadership roles in Catholic schools and hospitals; through parish ministry to the youth, to married couples, to the sick and the aged; and through family-centered religious education. The church as a community has a renewed vision of her role as a leaven in the civic community .. and as collaborating ecumenically with other churches and communions for the good of the human community. 2. The new model of the priesthood and religious communities. The role of service to the world and presence in the world has changed the traditional model of priests and Religious

Religion should be a canny mixture of spiritual experience and exemplary moral behavior. Elimination of one or the other produces inadequate results. Take away the spiritual experience and you have only the cranky moralist. Remove the moral quest and behold a mere self-seeker of spiritual experience, doomed to disappointment because without the moral quest, he cannot realize spiritual experience.

THIS IS AN ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPH of St. Therese of Lisieux (in black veil) ~ith her Carmelite novices. The statue of the In fant of Prague in the background sY.ID~oh~es the saint's teaching of "spiritual childhood ," her path to perfection through ImItatIOn of the virtues of the Child Jesus.

The Saint of Little Things By Father John J. Castelot

Imagine a girl who died at 24 having done nothing spectacular, yet who came to 'oe known and revered all over the world in just a few years, without the help of a press agent. was acclaimed a saint by millions of Catholics and non-CatJ:olics, and within 30 years was canonized. The girl was Therese Martin, who became Sister Therese of the Child Jesus and is referred to lovingly as the Little Flower. Marie-Francoise-Therese was born at Alencon on Jan. 2, 187 3. She was the youngest of five daughters, whose father was a watchmaker and jeweler, and whose mother produced fine lace. While Therese was her daddy's darling, she was just feur when her mother died, and it took her eight years to recover from the emotional shock. This was her "winter of trial." Eer

as persons not only set apart but even isolated from the human community. Seminaries no longer follow a monastic life style but encourage pastoral activity by their students and contacts with the larger Christian and civic community. The contemplative orders, however, are still an integral part of the church. 3. The new model of spiritual development. The old asceticism of an individual and private spiritual life has come to include greater emphasis on community prayer and worship and spiritual growth through serv 'e and support of others iii need. The Mass and the sacraments are becoming more effective experiences of the presence of Christ as路 well as exercises of spiritual conviction.

resultant sensitivity, shyness and diffidence made school life difficult for her, although she was a good student. At, 10, she became seriously ill, suffering convulsions, hallucinations and comas for three months. Her sudden cure came in answer ';0 her prayers to Our Lady of Victories. Then, on Christmas of 1886, she underwent a dramatic change, her "conversion." It came about simply as a reaction to a chance remark of her father's about her childlike attachment to Christmas festivities. Whatever the psychological connection between the remark and her reaction, she later wrote that "on flat blessed night the swe~t child Jesus, scarcely an hour old, filled the darkness of my soul with floods of light. By becoming weak and little for love of me, He made me strong and brave; he put his ownweapons into my hands so that I went from strength, beginning, if I may say so, 'to run as a giant.' " Earlier that year her sister Mary had joined Pa\lline, her eldest sister, in the convent, Carmel of Lisieux, and the next year she got her father's permission to enter the same convent. However the ecclesiastical authorities considered her too young. A few months later her father took her to Rome on a French pilgrimage for the sacerdotal jubilee of Leo XIII. When she knelt for the Pope's blessing, she broke the rule of silence and asked him, in honor of his jubilee, to permit her to enter Carmel when she was 15. His kindly but noncommittal answer was: "You shall enter if it is God's will." It was God's will, and she joined her sisters on Apr. 9, 1888.


She took seriously the special Carmelite duty to pray for priests. In spite of her physical delicacy she observed all austerities called for by the rule, but she was not allowed to fast. Her prayer life was unpretentious. Her autobiography contains a beautifully simple description of prayer: "With me prayer is a lifting up of the heart; a look toward heaven; a cry of gratitude and love uttered equally in sorrow and in joy. In a word, something noble, supernatural, which enlarges my soul and unites it to God . . . Except the Divine Office, which in spite of my unworthiness is a daily joy, I have not the courage to look through books for beautiful prayers . . . I do as a child who has not learned to read - I just tell our Lord' all that I want and he understands." She struggled against her irritability with the idiosyncrasies of some of the sisters. She wrote, " I am a very little soul, who can offer only very little things to our Lord." She was appointed assistant novice mistress when she was only 20 and was considering accepting a call to join the Carmelittes in Hanoi. But it was not to be. Tuberculosis struck her down 18 months before her death. Her autobiography, written over the years at her superior's command, was edited and circulated among other convents. But soon it became public, and her "little way" to holiness created a sensation among ordinary Christians. Near death she had promised: "After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses." Those roses were untold graces for innumerable souls. She was canonized by Pius XI in 1925.

The .council of Trent had urged Catholics to be people of good works both in the area of moral action and spiritual deeds. While hoth are necessary, there is a primacy given to the spiritual deeds, for the spiritual experience should sustain the lasting dedication to the moral order. For Catholics the Mass has always been the supreme source of spiritual experience. This was true officially and in theory, but not always in practice. The Council of Trent reformed the Mass by eliminating what we might. call the "allegorical Eucharist," in which each part of the ceremony reflected a scene from the Passion, and replacing it with a "ritual Eucharist" in which each detail was minutely regulated. The Tridentine Mass was to be unchangeable, reflecting the unchangeable nature of the church. From one point of view this was successful. The Tridentine Mass prevailed from 1570 to the mid-1960's, although it was not accepted in France and Germany until the 1830s. As a recognizable international ritual, it offered comfort, solace and familiarity to Catholics from Rome to Paris to New York to Hong Kong. On the minus side, it allowed for no spontaneity to speak of, and it forbade the use of vernacular. Protestants had made the transition to local languages but the Fathers of Trent could not take that step. Thus, while Catholics held onto the Mass as their central saving ritual and sacrament, they often looked elsewhere for the spiritual experience of God which their souls hungered. On the popular level, this was expressed in what has been called devotionalism. Critics have complained that such devotions were too sentimental, suffused with bad taste and inauthentic quests for the experience of Christ. T/1e opinion is too harsh. Devotionalism for centuries afforded millions of Catholics a simple, direct and appealing access to the love and experience of Christ.

Sunday, June 4 will be graduation day for students at Bishop Gerrard and Bishop Connolly

Vocation Vigil Continued from Page One literally, recalling that his advice on getting vocations is very simple: ask the one in charge to get them for you - pray to the Lord of the harvest. That's what people in the Fall River diocese will be doing for the next year. This weekend the Vigil will be explained at all Masses and participants will be asked to sign a card pledging to offer special prayer for vocations on one day each month. The cards will be returned to Bishop Cronin as tangible evidence of the prayer power that will be directed to the vocations goal. In a section of the card to be kept by those joining the program, the bishop explains the Vigil further. He writes: May I suggest that on your chosen day you try to attend Mass and spend some time in prayer, offering it for priestly and religious vocations. You could, also, offer a Rosary, visit to the Blessed Sacrament, or any specific sacrifice or act of charity for the following intentions: - For priests, sisters, brothers and deacons who have served your parish in the past, for those who are now serving; and that future Church vocations will be forthcoming from your home, parish and dicese. - For those studying for religious life and the priesthood. - for one of the above, who at this very moment, is facing great temptation. If you miss your chosen date, the next most convenient date is fine. May God bless you for joining our prayer "Vigil for Vocations." Somewhere there is someone who needs your prayers.

New Order Begun By Famed Nun ROME (NC) - Mother Teresa of Calcutta, world-renowned founder of the Missionaries of Charity, has established a contemplative order for men. The order was founded Pentecost Sunday in Acilia, a small town outside Rome. Called Fratelli della Parola (Brothers of the Word), it is the male branch of the Sisters of the Word, also founded by Mother Teresa. Members will spend most of the day in contemplation, also then devoting several hours to preaching or announcing the Gospel message in other ways. The Missionaries of Charity, whose work is the service of the poor, have nearly 1,100 members in iOI houses throughout the world, including one in New York City. Lay persons, called Co-workers of Mother Teresa, are associated with them.

focus on youth ... "I don't care _to hear presidents' speeches, nor senators' interviews. nor receive letters from congressmen that tell me nothing. I'm sick of the whole mess. We still spend too much time talking about arms f.nd weapons and who to sell them to, and there'~; too much politics involved in everything, and th~re are too m,my best-selling books written by people who break ':he law. I ask myself, 'why arr. I knocking myself out?' This letter was written b)' a college freshman. He was down and needed encouragement, reassurance. And this seems ~:he mood of so many young people who hate war, want peace, want to earn honest livings and find the world is in no b~tter shEpe one day than the next. I think they are more disappointed in leadership than in anything. They feel leaders are out to make money, are more interested in that than in serving the people. They write boo"its, sign TV contracts and zo\\ ie, they're on their way! And they wouldn't be there 'at all were it not for the American people. This is what I hear all the time. What to do about it? The fact that the major powers cannot reach an arms agreement is discouraging to youth. Those who opposed the Viet Nam war could not ('scape the feeling that Christ was between heaven and earth, between the lines, absorbing in his body every pellet and every bullet from either side. We think of how he tried to make peace with his blood, of how he pleaded that we stop the enmity that divides us. And now the Christ that youth clung to is being torn apart again. Those who don't believe in him are undermining the faith of those who do believe, but who in their inexperience a'td vulnerability are wondering who will come forth and put this matter to the test once and for all. They are tired, these you ng

people, of the many sects who claim they and they alone have the answers. Of one church saying that it and it alone is superior, especially when they take a good hard look at the members of these churches and then in sorrow, shake their heads. Wo:~ds, words, words. There is only one race - the human race. And the long, uphill struggle has shown us one thing, the affirmation that God made us this way, that Christ died to keEp us this way, so that the big sin has always been that we are constantly trying to put asunder what God has joined together. Let no one accuse youth of not loving their country whenever they discuss these matters. Love and freedom have nothing to do with the transactions performed by some nations. Power is in there somewhere - the . love of power. Security? How can one be secure? Is there ever security in this world? The only security is our faith. The self that relies on God knows that He is the only security. It is the ego that cannot accept that fact. On Palm Sunday I looked at the symbol for peace that I received. r never throwaway the palms. They are part of our future. They make us ask hard questions of ourselves. Vou ask, "What kind of King inspires me to wave this palm?" Is myself large enough and my ego small enough to follow Him into a city of viJlence? Will I deny Him? Or will I accept every blow rendered to Him?" It is hard to be a Christian. But for some of us, harder not to be.

"Short People" was intended to be a satire on narrowmindedness, and instead, has been taken literally. But poking fun is intended to help the listener notice situations that are not funny at all. Taken with less than its satirical intent, this song presents little. But it offers valid ideas when considered within its intended context. "Shortness," or narrowmindedness is a condition manifested in many ways. Too often our put-downs "shorten" another's sense of worth. The carefulness and sensitivity in which we respond to another can make the difference in how he realizes his potentials. When our view is "tall," when we look at our lives with confidence and imagination, we discover that each stage of life's growth is filled with opportunities to learn and love. But when we allow fear to "shorten" our attitude, we miss the fullness meant to be ours. Looking at the Gospel, we see that Jesus took the time to add the personal caring to cure all types of "shortness." He saw personal worth in each person and helped others see it. As his followers, our task is the same.

Holy Family has a bye on tomorrow's Division Three season finale. The Hockomock League also completed its regular season yesterday.

Entering this week's action, Somerset and Dennis-Yarmouth, running a tight race for the Division One Conference crown had qualified with New Bedford High not yet out of contention for a berth in the Eastern Mass. playoffs.

The schools that have qualified are looking ahead to the Eastern Mass. tournament, scheduled to open one week from today and continue on June 3, 6, 8 and 9.

Sharon and Oliver Ames of the Hockomock League appeared to have dinched berths in the Eastern Mass. tourney with Canton and King Philip still in the running.
