20c, $6 Per Year

Appeal sets record The Most Reverend Daniel A. Cronin, Bishop of Fall River and honorary chairman of the 1981 Catholic Charities Appeal has announced that a record-setting total of $1,277,630.74 has been recorded. "I am profoundly grateful to everyone who has helped in any way," the bishop said, pointing out that the unprecedented generosity of contributors places diocesan programs, including socia.! services, counseling. health care and special apostolates on a firm financial basis for the 1981-1982 fiscal year. Bishop Cronin reported that 1981 Appeal totals were the highest in the 40 year history of the annual spring campaign, topping 1980 figures by more than $67,500. "It's a real consolation to me," he added, "to know that we can make plans to maintain and to improve our diocesan programs. So many folks depend upon us. I am delighted that our good parishioners all through the diocese and our kind friends in business and industry have made the 1981 Appeal so very successful." Monsignor Anthony M. Gomes, director of the Appeal, commented that over 100 of the 113 diocesan parishes had gained honor roll status by surpassing their last year totals. Leading parishes were Mount

Carmel, New Bedford, with returns of $32,829, Saint Pius X, South Yarmouth, $32,605, and Holy Name, Fall River. $30,031. From Diocesan headquarters, Monsignor Gomes noted that while regional and national "special gifts" to the Appeal continue to show growth, the principal strength of the campaign rests in the important parish returns, where, for the second consecutive year, the level of contributions exceeded the $1 million mark. V. Vito Gerardi of New Bedford, lay chairman of the 1981 Appeal, praised the thousands of volunteer workers who conducted the vital door-to-door phase of the drive. An informal survey of pastors indicated that parishioners seemed cheerfully generous, even in an uncertain economic atmosphere. There was a sense that the number of contributors was greater than usual, an indication, one priest said, that people appreciate the good work of the institutions and agencies benefiting from the Appeal. "God has most certainly blessed us," Bishop Cronin concluded, "and I am certain that he will bring abundant blessings to all those who have helped to make our 1981 Catholic Charities Appeal such a grand success.

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS form honor guard for annual Santo Christo procession of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, New Bedford.

.ROME (NC) Pope John Paul II, declared out of danger by his doctors, taped a Sunday noon message for St. Peter's Square May 24 and met briefly with Mrs. Rose Hall, one of the two Americans wounded with him May 13. The pope's doctors said he was in "very satisfactory condition," and should be restored to health within 60 days, barring any unexpected complications. The pontiff is on solid foods after nine days of intravenolls feeding. "That's a real relief," the pope reportedly said when he was told the intravenous feeding tubes in his right forearm would be removed. Meanwhile, Vatican Press Office Vice Director Father Pierfranco Pastore, told reporters that he wanted to "set the record straight" on the pope's words when he was first shot. He denied that the pope made the widely quoted comment: "Why did they do it?" The pope told his secretary,

Msgr. Stanislaw Dziwisz, "I feel a lot of pain," and said that he was hit "in the stomach," Father Pastore said. He said that during the ambulance ride to the hospital the pope repeated several titnes in Polish: "Jesus, Jesus. Mary my mother." As the pope woke up in the hospital room the morning after the operation, Father Pastore added, he told Msgr. Dziwisz at his bedside, "Last night we did not recite compline." Compline is the night prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours, the official church prayers marking the times of the day, which bishops, priests, deacons and some professed Religious are required to say daily in ordinary circum!'>tances.

Continued from page one At the pope's request Msgr. Dziwisz prayed the previous evening's compline with him, Father Pastore said. For the Sunday noon Regina Coeli May 24, the pope tape-recorded a thr~e-minute message, led the Regina Coeli, and gave his blessing, Father Pastore said that immediate1yafterward the pope conc~lebra~Mass in his room with 路his ,secretary of state, Cardina(Agqstino Casaroli. He said he did'.not know if the pope stood during Mass, but said that on previous days the pontiff sat in an armchair while celebrating Mass. The pope's Regina Coeli message, played over loudspeakers to about 30,000 pilgrims gathered at noon in St. Peter's Square, focused on the value of sickness and suffering when it is offered to God. His voice showed some signs of weakness and strain. For his first solid meal the pope had soup, cooked fruit, and some of the ton and a half of fresh fish that a group of Sicilian fishermen had sent to the hospital in homage to the pope. Doctors did not say when Pope John Paul would be allowed to leave the hospital, but there was some speculation that he might return to the Vatian in June. Dr. Francesco Crucitti, head of the surgical team that operated on the pope, emphasized that the pope was still convalescing and that the 60-day prognosis by the doctors was a general prediction that, barring complications, the pope could be restored to "a condition' of approximate normality" of health in two months.

the living word

Get on the Bandwagon There can be little doubt that the public reaction to proposed cuts in the Social Security program elicited the appropriate response. When the people raise their voice, when they organize and band together for a cause affecting their own lives, then Congress will listen and, if possible, act. Now is the time for parents of children in private/parochial schools to act. In the United States Senate there is a bill which will prevent parents who exercise their constitutional freedoms from being penalized for doing so. The bill in question, popularly known as Packwood/ Moynihan, would give parents of children in private or parochial schools a phased-in tax credit on their tuition payments. When fully effective, the credit would amount to 50 percent of tuition payments to a maximum of $500 per child. From the outset, let it be made clear that there are entrenched opponents to this bill. A few members of Congress sincerely believe that tuition tax credits would violate the First Amendment; a few others would use this constitutional argument as an excl!se to avoid facing the facts of the case. However, the main opposition comes from those forces which have reduced public education to its current status. The National Education Association is totally opposed to any form of aid to private/parochial education and especially to tUition tax credits. Afraid that the gravy train is coming to a abrupt halt, as indeed it is, and clutching at its fragmented straws of credibility, this organization will do everything in its power to defeat any type of tuition aid. In this battle, opponents to the right of parental choice have gained powerful support from influential liberal Congressmen. The two senators from Massachusetts, judging from their voting records, woulud not be in favor of helping parents in this regard. It is illogical that the federal government should deny grants to grade and high school students yet give them to those same students once they are of college age. It is equally illogical that the Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld legislation providing benefits for both public and private/parochial school children in the. areas of busing, textbooks, standardized testing and diagnostic and therapeutic services. To date the Court, as it should, has treated laws enacted by the Congress, a coequal branch of government, with much greater deference than laws passed by the states. Those concerned about our American tfreedom of choice; those who wish to see the rights of Americans ensured by law; those who want a free choice in the matter of child education should vigorously support the Packwood /Moynihan bill. It should be recalled that parents who seek tuition credits are paying taxes for the support of public education. They are not trying to evade that payment. They just want justice. A fair shake under the law will be provided them by Packwood/Moynihan. It's not just a matter of making a lot of noise or of mailing a letter. It is a matter of getting to our elected officials and letting them know, especially in ou r state, that they cannot take ou.r votes for granted. It is a matter of getting tuition tax credits off the ground and into the offices of Congress. It is a matter of getting on the bandwagon and getting that bandwagon on the move.

'Heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall not pass away.' Mark 13:31

'A hard and cruel music' By Thomas P. McDonnell I take it that a long enough time has elapsed, since the deatli by assassination of the popular composer John Lennon, not to have held against one the fact that one may have been something other than thoroughly enchanted by the life and works of the man. I mourn the death of anyone cut down by madness, especially in the midst of whatever gifts of artistic creativity that one might be said to possess, but I am also a dedicated enemy to the kind of milieu that John Lennon rep~ resented and out of which his music issued with either hammering or banal insistence. I believe there is a sickness of soul in humanity. today and should like to consider what I take to be at least one of its manifestations in the alleged music of our time, commonly known as rock, and all that too familiar jazz. Jazz may be one thing, and a very good thing at that, but rock is another and you can have it. Rock in general is a hard and cruel sort of music, typical of our times, and therefore full of violence. It is positively dispiriting to have to read those Charlie Martin rationalizations of the top rock and pop lyrics that the National Catholic wire service feels compelled to publish every week as a service to its subscribers. I realize, of course, the

goodness of the intent, which is to salvage something meaningful from the demented havoc wrought by these alleged songs. The fact is, however, there isn't all that much that can be salvaged from what one might naively presume to be the best of such songs. The worst of them, of course, are hymns to the drug culture and to sexual permissiveness at a time of life when adolescents are neither psychologically equipped nor spiritually mature enough to handle sexual responsibilities. Also, in rock music, the appeal to sexuality itself is almost always made at the lo\test possi. ble levels. In short, rock lyrics tend to be filthy. Parents are not only unaware of where their children are, they don't know what the kids are listening to. In the indoctrination of the young, therefore, it is not unusual for rock lyrics to appeal to perversion and adultery as acceptable modes of behavior. The Rev. Jesse Jackson has called pornographic music a form of child abuse. We fool ourselves badly. I think, to presume that the nicer or blander lyrics interpreted by Charlie Martin for the NC wire service do not in fact emanate from the hard rock and drug culture in which Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, John Lennon, and others have been sacrificed in the utterly pagan rites of self-destruction.

It is mostly on the grounds of music itself that I object to the primitivism of rock's maniacally insistent beat which, in the end, must reduce the listener to an almost malignant state of unconscious drives and potentially dangerous aggressions. When the great Russian exile Alexander Solzhenitsyn addressed a Harvard University graduating class several years ago, it went almost unnoticed that he spoke of our "intolerable music" as one of a shattering litany of signs which clearly reveal to us the steady disintegration of Western culture.

There is a struggle out there, my friends, which we had better recognize as crucial to the existence - and, indeed, the destiny - of the planet. Solzhenitsyn believes that it is "a fight of cosmic proportions" and that it has already started. Meanwhile just for the hell of it, we drench ourselves in a raucously thumping noise that pretends to be music and we dance :n garish bad taste to the flashing strobe lights of our endless unrest.

Questions about heaven, hell and purgatory By Father John Dietzen Q. This may be a childish question. U it is ignore iL If we are t,,' live in heaven always and forever, wouldn't it get awfully boring? If there is DO work and DO play what would we do - just hang around? I'd really like to. know. (California)

A. You're not the only one. This profound, frustrating question has intrigued Catholic and other Christian theologians for centuries. The final truth is we just don't know. Scripture and other Christian traditions tell us a

number of things about life after death, but they do not fill in many details. We know first of all that we will rise to a new life. We also know that this being which will exist in eternity will be ourself each of us with full consciousness of our identity from before death and with our full human nature, body and soul. . Furthermore, from the evidence of Jesus after his own resurrection, we know that this human nature will be dramatically different; our mental and physical capacities will go far

beyond our experience in this life. One thing is sure. Confronted with the unveiled infinite reality of God, with all the potential of creative love that is (in our limited human way of speaking) barely scratched by all the creation we know, and with the highly elevated spiritual and physical powers we will have to know and love that divine nature, I really do not think we will have a problem of boredom. We can only walk close to that great reality of heaven before we are confronted with the simple fact that we are dealing here with a mystery hidden deeply in the heart of God. No theo· logian has ever gotten far beyond St. Paul's declaration, "Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love him." I suppose we just have to trust in God that Paul knew what he waS talking about. Q. I was surprised at your recent answer to the question eoneemiog the place or Mary's birth and death. You said she probably died arcnmd Jenasalem. I thought we believed that Mary did not die but was taken up into heaven by God in the AssuMption. Do we believe that Mary died or don't we? (penn· sylvania) A. Catholic doctrine says nothing one way or the other about Mary's death. Christian writers have through the centuries debated both sides of this question. It has, however, nothing to do with the doctrine of the Assumption. When Pope Pius XII defined the doctrine of the Assumption in 1950, he deliberately avoided any attempt at settling the con· troversy. He simply said that "at the end of her earthly life" (the offical Latin text reads "expleto terrestris vitae cursu"), Mary was taken body and soul into heaven by God. The most common belief is that Mary died just as everyone else has, including Jesus. But there is no official church teaching on the subject. Q. In the Apostles' Creed we say "He descended into belL" Would you please explain why we say this? Jesus was the only perfect person on earth. He neVer sinned. Why would he have to go to hell? (Florida) A. The word "hell," as it is used in the Apostles' Creed, does not mean the "hell of the damned," which it usually means in current English. The use of the word "hell" in our ·English translation is unfortunate, but has been traditional for so long it will hardly be changed now. The word is a translation from the Latin (also Greek and Hebrew) word which means the "lower regions" - a generic name for the place where people go after death, without regard to a condition of reward or punishment.

We have a similar word (unfortunately also vastly misunderstood) in our Christian tradition. The name "limbo" has been used to designate a possible place or condition for children who die without baptism in other words, a place that is neither heaven nor hell but somehow neutral. As I indicated, misunderstandings of what the church has and has not taught about limbo are widespread. Nevertheless, limbo would probably be a more ape propriate word than hell for the "place where Jesus went" after his death.

Q. My question concerns pur· gatory which we hardly ever bear about any more. I always thought it was a place and that a certain amount of time was to be spent in purgatory by those who still have punishment due for sin. How can the Catholic doctrine of purgatory be recon· ciled with the concept or the afterlife outside of time and space? What, if anything, are we to believe? (Del.)

A. Purgatory assuredly has not gone by the wayside. It is still very much a part of our faith

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thur., May 28, 1981


Questions abollt lieaven, hell and purgatory as every sacrifice of the Mass and everY other prayer for the dead attests. Perhaps. one reason less is said about it today is that we have a lot of ; collected debris about purgatory to clear out of our minds. The hoary pil=tures of torture, p~p, and a scourging God which made of purgatory a kind of minihell may literally scare the devil out of someone, but they are totally irrevelant to the doctrine of purgatory. These gory images grew up around the idea of purgatory through the Middle Ages and later into the . Renaissance.

DO~lne "1(

At least two things are ~lear in the Catholic doctrine concerning purgatory. First, the Church teaches that there is some condiiion or circumstance after death by which any temporal punishment remaining for sins committed during life is satisfied, and that our prayers and good works on earth can assist those who are "in purgatory." Second, it is equally clear that the official teachings of the councils and other sources of Catholic belief have no intention of answering details about purgatory - whether it is a state or condition on the one hand or

a place on the other. Or whether time is Involved or not. Since the world after death would not seem to have hours or 4ays or locations in our sense of those words, it seems quite unlikely that purgatory involves place or time as we usually think of them. It is very possible that, in the burst of awareness of the reality of God and creation that might occur immediately after death, the pain that comes from our knowledge of our sins and shortcomings might be so acute and intense that an entire purgatory - or cleansing, which is what the ~ord, '~purgatory," means - could occur in an instant. While such an explanation seems to square with what we might expect about the threshold of eternity we simply don't know for sure. The church has not attempted officially to satisfy our curiosity about such questions, and probably couldn't if it tried. Q. I have visited many different parishes in our state in which the name of the deceased person for whom a Mass is being offered is not mentioned.. In 'act, in our area this practice has been eliminated almost c0mpletely. Is it Just that priests do not want to bother, or is there another reason that the Mass Intention is not indicated at the Mass itself?

A. I can think of two reasons. First, most priests today try to reduce announcements during Mass to a minimum. Since the special intentions for daily Masses are usually in the parish bulletin, everyone at church already has access to this information. If a particular name is to be designated, the appropriate place would be in the Prayer of the Faithful or possibly in the Eucharistic Prayer at the commemoration of the dead. Second, there is a greater realization today than in the past that all celebrations of the Eucharist are for the entire church, universal and local. This fact is emphasized frequently by the very prayers of the Mass themselves. Even though the phrase is used in some pious prayers, there is no such thing as "an abandoned soul." Every offering of the Holy Sacrifice has the same intention as the first offering of that sacrifice by Jesus on Calvary and in the resurrection: the salvation of the world. The practice of having special intentions for the offering of the Eucharist has a long, honorable and continuing tradition in the church. We continue that tradition today by our "special Mass intentions." That fact, however, should not lead us to forget that the intention of Christ and the church in every offering of the Mass is much larger than any specific personal intentions of our own. Q. A Catholic friend of mine was buried during the past few days, but there was no Mass. She was taken from the funeral

home to the cemetery for something called a committal service, which lasted about 10 minutes. In our city, Catholics are always taken to church for Mass before burial. Why wasn't she?

tery. Such a plan is expJicitIy provided for in the official "Rite of Funerals." However, whenever the Mass is not part of the burial rite it· self, the eucharistic celebration for the deceased person should take place without the body, either before or after the funeral.

Is this something new? (Calif.)

A. In our country, as in most of the rest of the world, the celebration of the Eucharist is nearly always a part (in fact, the central part) of the funeral rite for, Catholics. For one reason or another, however, it does occasionally happen that Mass is omitted at that time, and that the funeral proceeds from the mortuary directly to the ceme-

You are aware, of course, that someone who is known as a Catholic might not have a Catholic burial at all if he has, in some significant way, rejected the church and his membership in it during his lifetime.

Preplanning popular, say funeral directors .


It used to be unusual to preplan one's funeral but in the last 20 years, area funeral directors agree, the practice has grown in popularity. "We never push the idea on anyone, but people like to do it." says Mrs. Cecile Rock of Rock Funeral Home in New Bedford. And William Poule of DuffyPoule Funeral Service, Attleboro, notes that pre-planning not only relieves tensions for survivors but ensures that a person's wishes in the matter of funeral arrangements are clearly understood. "People used not to like to

talk about these things, but now they are breaking through," he said. Initially, agreed Mrs. Frances Hallett Webb of Hallett Funeral Home, South Yarmouth, there may be hesitancy in approaching the subject but almost invariably peace of mind comes when a person has made his or her arrangements. "If a person doesn't want to make complete arrangements, we encourage him or her at least to take a form and fill in information that will be needed for a death certificate," she said. "That

Burial norms are explained NEW ORLEANS (NC) - The new guidelines for Christian burial issued by the New Orleans Archdiocese represent its "position and teaching on death and burial," according to Father Thomas C. Dowling. Father Dowling chaired a committee of the archdiocesan Liturgical Commission which drew up the new guidelines after consultation with priests of the archdiocese and Archbishop Philip M. Hannan. "The need for such guidelines," from the questions asked by priests and people about new regulations and church teachings on death and burial, plus the increasing number of funeral Masses being held elsewhere rather than in the parish church." The guidelines, he said, are prefaced with a reflection on death and then outline the proper rituals. In "The Preferred Plan of the Rite of Funerals," three stations for funeral services are given: the first station, which is a service in the mortuary or funeral home; the second station, which is the funeral Mass in the church; and the tHird station whi'Ch takes place at the grave or tomb. "The stations are set up as a progression of mood through the rites accompanying death and burial," said Father Dowling. Emphasis is placed in the guidelines on burial from the parish church, which is the proper place for the funeral Mass. "Mass in the funeral parlor is an extreme option," said the priest.

Rex said about 25 percent of his monument orders are preneed and noted that in this area Barre granite is the top choice for upright memorials. He said that a flat marker can be obtained in about three weeks, while the upright stones are

They'll stay at posts MARYKNOLL, N.Y. (NC) Six U.S. missionaries working in EI Salvador under the Maryknoll mission society have decided to continue in their posts. The four priests and two nuns made the decision at meetings in Guatemala after consulting with Salvadorean church officials, said spokespersons at Maryknoll headquarters in New Yorlt. The decision was taken after church leaders at Maryknoll and in EI Salvador expressed fear for the lives of the missionaries following Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois' ll-day stay with Salvadoran guerrillas. Father Bourgeois' action came under heavy criticism in -1:1 Salvador where it was seen ~IS evidence that missionaries are involved in political activity. "Our decision was to r-emain in EI Salvador after consulting with Bishop Arturo Rivera Da· mas," said a spokesman f4)r the four priests. The two nuns made a similar decision, said a spokes-

Strikers may have Christian burial DUBLIN, Ireland (NC) People who die because of politically motivated hunger strikes can receive Christian burial and a funeral Mass, according to the Irish Bishops' Conference, which includes the bishops of Northern Ireland. "The church teaches that suicide is a great evil, but there is some dispute about w:ltether or not political hunger striking is suicide, or more precisely, about the circumstances in which it is suicide," said a memorandum outlining the policy. Granting of Christian burial does not mean approval of the hunger strike and church officials "pleaded with the hunger strikers to desist from their fast," said the statement from the bishops, alluding to hunger strikes by Irish Republican Army prisoners in Northern Ireland.

Neither the names of the six missionaries nor their plans for returning were immediately made available by Maryknoll.

VATICAN CITY (NC) _. Pope John Paul II has upgradEd the Vatican's Committee for the Family to the level of a pontifical council. The pope had intended to announce the decision at the end of his Wednesday general audience May 13 but was shot and wounded in St. Peter's Square on his way to the papal audience platform. The next day the Vatican Press Office released the pope's prepared announcement I>f the new pontifical council and the Latin-language papal document forming the office and spelling out its responsibilities. The document, dated May 9, is called a "motu pre,prio," which means that the pope wrote it, as the Latin term say:;, "on his own initiative."
