Mother Teresa out of hospital

Mexican cardinal killed in airport shootout thought drug related MEXICO CITY (CNS) - Mexican Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo was killed May 24 in the cross-fire of a shootout at the Guadalajara airport that church sources say may have been linked to the recent upsurge of drugrelated violence in Mexico. The 66-year-old archbishop of Guadalajara and vice president of the Mexican bishops' conference died of as many as 14 gunshot wounds to the chest and throat while being driven through the airport parking lot, where much of the gun battle took place. Also killed were the cardinal's driver, identified as 33-year-old Pedro Perez Hernandez by archdiocesan spokesman Father Adalberto Gonzalez. According to Mexican television news reports, five other bystanders were also killed, including an unidentified woman and her young son. Initial reports said the shootout erupted. around 3 p.m. between rival gangs inside the terminal at the international departures counter. It spilled out into the parking lot .with police in pursuit. ' Hand grenades and AK-47 assault rifles were found in vehicles believed to belong to gang members. Cardinal Posadas was the third cardinal to die violently in this century. Cardinal Emile Biayende of Brazzaville, Congo, was slain in. tribal violence in 1974 and Cardinal Juan Soldevilla of Zaragoza; , Spain, was murdered by anarchists in 1923. Initial accounts from official 'sources and Mexican press reports were contradictory, but Father Gonzalez told Catholic News Service that the cardinal and his driver were killed as they came to the airport to await the arrival of the Vatican's delegate to Mexico, Archbishop Girolamo' Prigione, who was flying in from Mexico City. An employee at the apostolic delegation in Mexico City confirmed to CNS that Archbishop Prigione was en route to Guadalajara at the time. The employee, who asked not to be named, said the Mexican government's Interior Secretariat later telephoned the

ROME(CNS) - MotherTeresa of Calcutta, 82, was released from hospital May 21, over a week after being admitted for treatment uf broken ribs she suffered in a fall, a hospital spokeswoman said. "M other Teresa is feeling slightly better than in past days, although she still has rib pains. She will continue to convalesce in the convent," said the spokeswoman for Rome's Salvator Mundi Clinic. The nun, winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, fell May 12 as she walked to chapel at one of the Rome residences of the Missionary Sisters of Charity, the community she founded in 1949. She was admitted to the clinic the next morning. "We are watching her carefully because in a person of her age and her general condition this type of injury can lead to complications," Dr. Vincenzo Bilotta said May 14. He noted that Mother Teresa has had heart problems in recent years. Mother. Teresa had· an active schedule in Europe in recent weeks, traveling to her native Albania during a visit there by Pope John Paul II in April, and speaking to a number of church groups in Italian cities.

delegation to assure the staff that the shootout was not connected to the delegate's trip to Guadalajara. In Mexico City, government sources maintained virtual silence while Mexican President Carlos . Salinas de Gortari flew to Guadalajara on the evening of the shooting to pay his respects to the slain cardinal at the city's cathedral. The Mexican 'president was accompanied on the flight by Archbishop Adolfo Suarez Rivera of Monterrey, president of the bishops' conference, who had been in the Mexican capital for a meeting with other bishops earlier in the day. . On the afternoon of the shooting, President Salinas sent a brief message to Pope John Paul II expressing "deep sorrow" and offering the condolences of the Mexican people and government on the cardinal's death. Salinas said in his letter to the pope that the country was indignant over the killing and considered the violent circumstances under which he died "a grave affront" to all Mexicans. Jalisco state Gov. Carlos Aceves said during a press conference that state law enforcement authorities were "carrying out an in-depth investigation in coordination with the federal attorney general's office."

Stop Hate campaign next week Fall River Mayor John Mitchell has declared the week of May 3 I to be Stop Hate Week. The campaign· to· bring attention·to problems ofbigotry.,: racism , and persecution based on religion, sex, etc. will include a panel discussion 7 p.m. June I at the Church of the Ascension, 160 Rock St. Among panelists will be James McNamee, associate superintendent of diocesan schools; WSAR radio commentator Frank Baptista; Cantor Richard Wolberg of Temple Beth-EI; John R.

Sponsors of the event include the Diocesan Department of Education, the Fall River School De,artment, and the Greater Fall River Interfaith :Council"Council of Churchenirid Human Relations Task Force. The program is free and 'open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

He said police reportedly have two suspects in custody, both· of whom allegedly had thrown down weapons as police moved to arrest them. Bishop Martin Rabago told reporters that Cardinal Posada's death is only one sign of a deterioration in public order in the city. Guadalajara, long considered the stronghold of drug lords in western Mexico, is "a city which is living in the midst of a radical kind of violence," the bishop said. Father Gonzalez told CNS that the growing violence in the city included virtual daily executionstyle murders which appear to be linked to infighting among rival organized crime families. "It looks more and more like war here," he said. "It really is becoming a war zone."

FOCA heads for full House \V,..(SHINGTON (CNS) - The Freedom of Choice: Act was headed for'a vote by the full House after the Judiciary Committee May 19 narrowly rejected Republican attempts to amend the bill to give states more power to regulate abortion. The bill would prohibit most limits on abortion through the point offetal viability, which is not defined, or at any time throughout pregnancy "if such termination is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman." The committee accepted amendments that would allow private <hospitals to refuse to perform abortions and would permit some parental notice requirements. The final committee vote was 20-15. Several supporters of the bill acknowledged that they would have preferred passing it without the amendments but that would have made it less likely to survive a vote on the House floor. Although advoc:ates of the bill said they ho'pe it r.eaches the full House within a few weeks, Speaker Thomas Foley, D-Wash., has said bickering over amendments is slowing its progress. The Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee passed an unamended version of the bill in March and has not scheduled! discussion by the full Senate. Meanwhile, Catholic pro-life officials have charged FOCA supporters with deception, saying the bill in its current form would do more than codify the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision permitting abortion virtually on demand. -::Higi~:Qeh!nct.thy':;s!pgan. rf 'cmlibing E&e.';js:rle~~h6rllq:ufat~: nor responsible," said Helen Alvare, director of planning and information for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops' Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities. "FOCA is the stuff of abortion advocates' dreams, which are not satisfied even by Roe;'~she added.. Gail. Quinn, e.~«:cutive: ctirectw ofthe pro~life secreta-riat, had said in a May: 18 letter to House Judiciary Committee members it· was time for FOCA backers "to admit exactly what this deceptively named designed to ·do." Among the bill's effects, she said, are that some state regulations designed to provide information to w.omen· considering abortion would be invalidated. Also invalidated, Ms. Quinn said, would be state laws that restrict or regulate abortions after viability, when the child could survive outside the womb. "Thi~ makes no practical sense from any point of view: Such lateterm' abortions are more·dangerous to the motherthan'childbirth, and a pregnancy can be 'terminated' at this stage without ending the child's life," Ms,.Quinn said. "Fot.all its gnive:·faults, Roe did insist that· a wonilan's 'Iiberty to termina:te' her. pregnancy was not the only significant.value at stake. in abortion decisions," she adde:d. What also .had to be considered were· ~'impo·r.tant state interests in regulation," ineluding an interest in maintaining "medical standards" and protecting"pr.enatallife," Ms. Quinn said. •

A Healing Message In retrospect, the recent "gay" march on Washington did very little to help the participants' cause. Reduced to little more than a showcase for extremists, it was a cross between the world of Woodstock and that of a Fellini movie. The cause of civil liberties was not well served by outrageous public behavior; indeed, causes gain very little when their supporters act as shock troopers. What could have been an important moment of public statement became a circus, thanks to the extremists who seemingly control the gay rights movement. This sell out to stereotypes was a failure. In fact, it simply stated to the nation: "Beware. Be Careful." Traditionally in this country we have struck a balance between tolerance and approval. As one writer recently stated, "Tolerance is the primary civic virtue of American pluralism. We agree to get along with people regardless of their beliefs and day-to-day behavior. Approval is quite a different matter. American institutions are not set up to approve various world views or to promote the values of those who hold them." The primary meanings of the word approve as found 'in Webster's Dictionary are to sanction; consent to; confirm. The most general definition of approve is simply "to hold as good," followed by the synonyms of endorse, certify and ratify. Achieving such approval is the goal of the gay movement as it now exists. On the other hand, the common understanding of tolerance is one of freedom. The very notion of tolerance implies freedom from bigotry or prejudice. For some the verb "to tolerate" is demeaning; however, in its true sense, it indicates that one respects another's beliefs or practices without necessarily agreeing or sympathizing with them. The word carries a sense of free choice and recognition, but not necessarily of approval. Taking such distinctions as a reality in our social order, it is imperative that we recognize that the vast majority of Americans are simply unwilling to treat homosexuality as if it raises no moral, ethical or social qq,estions. For centuries the major faiths of Islam, Catholicism,:tJudaism and Protestantism have taught that homosexual acts are wrong. This obvious cultural struggle which is being played out on all levels of our society has become a controversy being debated in courts and legislatures around the country. But if the debate is worthy, it cannot progress in sincerity and truth as long as extremists on both sides of the issue are running the show. That is why we should support the path of tolerance. With that stance it becomes unnecessary to create categories that divide people and separate them into the favored and unfavored. In all of this we must be concerned about people, no matter what their views or preferences. The good Lord did not ask people who and where they were when he dispensed his divine mercy. He simply healed the wounded and made the broken whole with no questions asked. This must be our own approach to the healing process involved in the gay rights issue. We must in effect say what Jesus said to the woman taken in adultery: "Go and do not act like this again." Our aim is to heal people as we continue seeking to bring compassionate understanding to issues that may disturb our own cultural values. The Editor

Letter to the Class of '93 By Christopher Carstens

Dear Class of 1993: Here's to you for your making it through high school. Graduation is one of the few times in life when everybody you know will stop and take note of your accomplishment. Enjoy the moment; you've worked hard, and you deserve it. I've listened to a lot of commencement talks, and, frankly, most of them are pretty boring. They roll in some state senator or aging rocket scientist who drones on about something nobody ever listens to. Here are some ideas for useful things to do with your now welleducated brain while state legislative analyst Frobusher jaws on at your graduation. I. Make a list of all the rock bands who were big deals when you were in ninth and 10th grades, and who are big nobodies today. Love and Rockets comes to mind. So do Culture Club, the Eurythmics and Motley Crue. Like the Star Wars action figures and Strawberry Shortcake dolls you collected when you were in first grade, those bands' CDs and posters don't mean much anymore. Your tastes have changed, and what you thought were the most precious things on earth have become the clutter at the bottom of your bedroom closet. This exercise may well remind you that none of that stuff is very

important after all. Don't spend your life letting MTV and advertising tell you what's important. 2. Try to remember which teacher did the most to help you through high school. For me it was Ruth Duquette, She quietly made me think things through when I'd gotten all overheated and shot off my mouth - which I did a lot. Mrs. Duquette gave me the chance to work myself out of some tough corners. Who helped you through? Who asked the important questions, or kept you interested when you were losing contact with school? Who cared enough to reach out when you needed some assistance? There had to be' somebody or you wouldn't be graduating. That teacher is a person who will be important for the rest of your life. Take time to say thanks. 3. Even though you're out of school, you aren't through learning. Think of a book you've heard about, one that you'd like to read. Reading books is what makes the big difference between people who go on learning through their whole lives and the ones who begin slow brain death at graduation. Books keep you thinking, and thinking keeps your brain alive. Don't ever stop reading them. 4. While the speaker works on his old jokes, you could work on a list of your goals in life. Everything we know about success and motivation proves that the clearer your goals. the more

speCific you 'make y'OUj-:t'l;Hgets, the better y'our chances'of ;actu~Hy attaining,tne'in:' ':.: ' . If you know your' goals, then you can be your own boss: Even working for somebody else, you can use your job as. a tool to move toward personal goals> . Would you like to you,r~own business? You ,can do' it: Maybe you'd like to work 'for a'n a'irlihe o/r buy your own 18~wHeel truck or design fashions for private boutiques. ' If you can imagine it, you can make it happen. That's why you spent all tl1ese years learhing'to use your brain: ' . And, by .the way, congratulations and' good luck. We~re all really proud of you,

If we refuse to forgive, the results are very predictable. Bad feelings continue, revenge holds sway, and we are bound up and pinned down by our past offenses. Not very lifegiving, yet at least we know what to expect. We can't anticipate what will happen if we start forgiving. The forgiven might develop new personalities, causing us to discover new aspects of our own personalities when we try to relate with them. This could begin a scary, continuous chain reaction of selfdiscovery. We might never again have the security of knowing exactly who we are. . No wonder Jesus greets his followers with, "Peace be with you." He knows how much turmoil his gift of the Spirit will bring to our lives. Famous Scripture scholar .Ioachim Jere mias always believed' some authentic Jesus sayings were contained in the apocryphal"Gospel of Thomas." He was very cer-'

The meaning of "Kyrie"Eleison" A. The phrase you ask about is an ancient Greek prayer of praise of God. It was in common use during Mass until the change to English about 25 years ago. , It first entered the eucharistic liturgy somewhere arqundthe year 375 in Jerusalem and Antioch and remains a venerable part of those Eastern Cathqlic liturgies' which use the Greek language.

Q. Often ,~ltthe beginning' of The words are usually translated Mass, the priest or song I~ader Lord (Kyrie) have mercy, or Christ , says Kyrie Eidson or ChristeEleihave rilercy, in the sense of asking son, and we answer. forgiveness. "For' the, times we , Our COUplES' group hilS talked, have failed, Lord have mercy." about it, but none of us knows The real meariing of 'eleision," what these words mean. Can you help us? Why are prayers like this however, has more to do with said when we can't understand compassion or loving concern than with direct pardon for sin. them? (Missouri)

Thus it is not so much a petition for forgiveness as a praise of God's compassionate mercy, with the sense of "Lord, you always have compassion toward us!" Your second question is not' so easy to answer!

Latin language must not be disdained by the Roman rite, "we must plainly never forget that Latin must be subordinate to the pastoral ministry and is not an end in itself."

'J ust as in other concerns, "the highest law must be the well-being The church desires as much as , , o'f souls." (April 26, 1968) , possible to keep in its liturgical In other words, since the liturgy "treasury" some of the great tradiis above all "an exercise of the ,tions of faith and worship, with' •priestly office of Jesus Christ", the thought that beautifulexpe- in his praise of the Father, all riences which helped our ancestors , elements of liturgical, celebrain the faith might sometimes be tions must be chosen "to ensure helpful for us. thattlie faithful take part ~now­ , On the other hand, our liturgical worship is not a museum.

in the celebration of the Mass and the sacraments. Nothing in the liturgy should be determined by the personal inclinations or idiosyncrasies of the priest, liturgical planner or anyone else.

A prompt response to the Great ,Gerbil Gfveaway By DOLORES CURRAN

I recently received a wonderfully creative a.ppeal for funds from a nonprofit organization which operates sheitersfor teenagers removed from their homes for reasons such as neglect, abuse and acting out. The letter went like this: This year, instead of a Membership Drive, we are inaugurating the Great Gerbil Giveaway. Your name has been suggested to be included in this

drawing for Gus and Gwendolyn, two frisky gerbils. If, perchance, you are not a gerbil fancier - or have gone the gerbil route with your kids -, you might want to avail yourself of our GGI (Gainst Gerbil Insurance) Policy. It works thusly: You make a wee check , say $5j$lO(more is absolutely permissible) to Court House, Inc., and return it with great dispatch to us in the enclosed envelope and we WILL NOT put your name in the hopper. In fact, we won't even put your name in the same room with the hopper! Without the GG I, of course, you just might WIN Gus and Gwendolyn who, we have it on unimpeachable authority, have multiplying personalities.

Seriously, while the concerns ofthis epistle border on the whimsical, the cause and need are real and worthwhile. Please help us Cherish the Children. I laughed aloud when I read the letter. So did my husband who said, "Send them some money. Get our name off the gerbil raffle." So I did. Anyone who has tried to get rid of an unwanted pet knows the problem. We've had kittens, chickens and snakes on our hands as various children acquired pets in earlier days. One son, who had a talent for bringing home pregnant creatures delighted in their multiple births, then fought to keep the progeny. Take the large garter snake he proudly toted home around his neck. "Isn't it great?" he asked.

Are teen's friends 'a bad influence?

By Dr. JAMES & MARY KENNY Dear Mary: My brother and sister-in-law moved -to this country six months ago with their three children. The oldeslt is 17 and a good boy. He goes to high school, has some friends and I think this is fine. However, his mother told me his friends do not look like good boys; They smell of cigarettes and beer. Their dothes and manners are not pleasiing to her. One morliling she gently told

him to be careful and said, "Some of your friends came to look for you. They do not look good to me." The boy got upset and responded, "1 know. You don't need to tell me" and left the table. After this, everything seemed OK. But my sister-in-law is worried her son will learn bad . things from these friends. Missouri Even parents not newly arrived in this country have difficulty judging the friends of their children. This judgment must be doubly difficult for your brother and sister-in-law. How do you judge whether companions are good or bad influences?What action can parents take regarding teen friendships? Appearances can be deceiving. Some young men get tattoos, wear

an earring or choose outlandish hairstyles or clothing, yet are wellbehaved. Other teens might choose styles which appear inoffensive to adults but which signify gang or cult relationships. Judging teens merely by appearances is risky. If teens show signs of drinking or using drugs, parents are dealing with more than appearances. Parents need to be aware of telltale signs. The smell of alcohol lingers on the teen's breath or in a car. Changes in behavior such as greater agitation or listlessness, eyes continually bloodshot or pupils dilated, and the presence of unusual smells might be signs of drug use. I n the absence of specific evidence that friends are into harmful activities, parents usually should not interfere with children's friendships because it is almost impossi-

ble and usually unwise. Teens today are mobile. Unless they are kept ,home' constantly" there is little parents can do to prevent friends from getting together. But parents can and should stay informed. School counselors know students and are concerned about their welfare. If you are worried. meet with a school counselor and ask whether these youths have been in trouble with the school or the law. Youth leaders in your church can often provide similar information. Try to get acquainted with the parents of your children's friends. They are probably as concerned as you are. You can keep each other informed. If you get reports that someone is a "bad kid," try to confirm it through accurate sources such as counselors, youth leaders or pro-

bation departments rather than through gossip, w,hicIi. may be wrong~' • -. " r': .. '" 'n:" .. . ~. '. "",.'. _ I H old your teen to a' curfew.

Gaining insight from painful memories By ANTOINETTE BOSCO

My sister Rosemary and I just spent a weekend at a conference called "Breakthrough." Rosemary lost her husband of 46 years in March and we thought this conference could be a healing source for her.

It utilizes a technique called "Time Line - the study of how memories are stored and accessed in our minds, and how this memory storage affects behavior." The expectation is that if you go back to a traumatic experience that has remained unresolved in your life you may be able to relive that experience with new maturity and "cler.r" your past of this' tragic event. And many affirmed afterward that they did feel they had "cleared" past negatives stored within themselves. For example. if you at times

experience unreasonable anger, fear or sadness, it may be that you still react negatively to a first experience of these emotions, bringing that inward influence to bear on subsequent experiences. We went back in time to recall painful events. I recalled a summer day when I was about 4 years old. In those days milk wagons were driven by horses. I remember a scene where a horse had fallen. hit by a car, his blood staining the street red. I cried and asked my mother if they would take the horse to the

doctor. She told me no, the horse would have to be shot. I was traumatized at the thought. But in a way the experience provided my introduction to what it means to be concerned for another. The memory of that horse stayed with me for years.

Another painful childhood memory also came back to me during the conference. [t was in kindergarten when one of my classmates announced she was having a party after school. Anyone who wanted to could come to her house.

I followed a group to her house. When_ we got there, the little hostess stood at the top of the front steps and announced she would choose who could stay and who had to leave. [ think I was the first one she pointed to who had to go. I remember feeling devastated. as if there was something wrong with me. But my feelings changed almost immediately when I realized that I had done nothing wrong and that I didn't have to take the blame for her insensitive act.

AgainstSOA Dear Editor: ,As a Catholic priest with the 'Maryknoll Order, I have been an outspoken critic of U.S. military aid to El Salvador for the past 13 years. My involvement in El Sal,vador began in '1980, after Salvadoran soldiers raped and murdered three nuns and a lay missionary. Two of the slain nuns were Maryknoll Sisters. In March of this year, the United Nations Truth Commission Report on El Salvador was released. This report named 62 Salvadoran military officers responsible for the most serious acts of violence inEI Salvador's long civil war. According to lists of graduates obtained from the National Security Archivc~s in Washington, D.C., 47 of the 62 officers cited in the Truth Commission Report were trained at the U.S. Army School of the Americas" currently located at Fort Benning, Georgia. The School of the Americas (SOA) was established in Panama in 1946, and over the years has trained'SS;OOO soldiers from Latin American co'untries. This year, 2,000 soldiers from 18 Latin American countries will be trained for combat at the School ofthe Americas at Fort Benning. This training, which costs millions of dollars, is paid for by U.S. taxpayers. But this school is not only costly in dollars, but also in human lives: ,',':J" URJA.::t.issass,in(Ztio1.1, pf Archbishop Romero: 3 officers cited; 2 are SOA graduates.

No improvement Dear Editor: A 1986 clipping from the New Bedford Standard-Times indicated that from 400 to SOO aborted babies were born alive annually in the United States, that three abortions were performed every minute, that doctors reaped enormous profits from doing abortions, and that Planned Parenthood, with 700 clinics across the nation, took in some $14 million in 1985, much of it from taxpayers. Today the situation has not improved. I wonder how much more Planned Parenthood has faken in since then. Become active with Right to Life programs! Kathryn E. Nowak Cape C?d Nursing Home

A physician's plea Dear Editor: I have sent the following letter to Massachusetts Governor Weld: Your Excellency: You have, or will soon have, before you petitions for clemency for two prisoners of conscience in this State: Reverend Francis Hagerty, S.J., incarcerated at Barnstable and Reverend Thomas Carleton, incarcerated at Billerica. Their "crime" is befieving the definition of abortion in Massachusetts General Laws 112 K, to wit "Abortion: the knowing destruction ofthe life of an unborn child" and acting on that ,belief. Out of conscience they have engaged in peaceful civil disobedience intending by their action to prevent or delay "the knowing destruction of the life of an unborn child." In the Biblical sense, they were attempting to "rescue those being swept to death." I know you and I disagree on the issue of abortion - but surely We both believe in compassion and mercy. I can tell you, as a person who always across a lifetime obeyed the law, of one day praying outside an abortion clinic and suddenly without premeditation feeling moved to drop my crutches and sit down on the sidewalk in peaceful civil disobedience. Arrested twice in this State, I was nolle prossed once and on trial found not guilty the second time. Yet, I paid a high price personally for following my conscience. While in the custody of the Boston Police and being totally passive, I was thrown on my back in an elevator and another prisoner thrown on top of me, breaking two ribs in my .' ..... ",1

•• '

right chest. Society though aware, did nothing about this violation of my person. Was it because I was on the wrong side? Reverend Hagerty, S.J., is a 76year-old man with a heart condition who is on heart medications. He has been found guilty-he has served time. I suggest justice has been served and that the merciful thing for a Governor to do is to recommend release on the basis of time served. Reverend Carleton has a 92year-old legally blind father and an 82-year-old mother. Offered a sentence of one year with one and a half year suspended if he would pledge to not go near abortion clinics for three years, he said in conscience he couldn't agree to that; the judge's answer, "2 1/2 sentence" in jail. . Reverend 'Francis Hagerty, S.J., Reverend Thomas Carleton and other prisoners of conscience in this state are paying a high price indeed for following their conscience. This old Bay State has in the past honored conscientious violators of the law - David Thoreau (taxes), Governor Chub Peabody's mother (arrested in the South in the segregation crisis members of the underground railway (slavery). Against this, the present prisoners of conscience will be ultimately judged by history. As a citizen of this Commonwealth, I plead with you as Governor, in the name of mercy and, I believe, the rule ofjustice, to grant commutation on the basis of time already s(:rved to Reverend Hagerty, S.J., and Reverend Carleton.

EWTN cut decried Dear Editor: No doubt a great many of you recently received notice from [Whaling City) Cable Television stating that we no longer will receive EWTN (Mother Angelica) with so many wonderful programs. Less than three years ago I subscribed to Cable TV because of EWTN. They are going to present another channel during [daytime) hours. If you feel as disheartened as I do, would you please write to Janice Rogers (even a postcard will suffice) informing her or whomever you are able to contact how UPS(:t you are that you no longer will be able to receive EWTN. You can write to Ms. Rogers at Cable T.V., 700 Kempton Street, New Bedford, Mass. 02740 or call 997-6701. With so much trash on television, and continually getting worse, I believe if enough of us take definite action we can turn this around before it is too late. Genevieve E. Foley New Bedford Editor'~. note: A Whaling City Cable TV representative stated that EWTN will continue to be available from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. weekdays and from 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. weekends. She said the change was made because a survey indicated that EWTN had fewer viewers than other programming.

WASHINGTON (CNS) - An organization started by a French priest 50 years ago may soon reach American public school teachers. Cooperation with the National Catholic Educational Association is being sought to help a group ~nown as Teachers' Teams expand Its system of support networks for Catholics who teach in public schools. Started by Father Michel DuClerq, who considered all teaching a vocation and thought the church ignored public school teachers, Teachers' Teams has ,thrived in other countries since the 1940s. But its growth in the United States has been slow since its U.So start five years ago, said national coor~ dinator Sharon Whitehead, a math, teacher at Marcos de Niza High School, Tempe, Ariz. California, Arizona and New York groups are going strong and teams are starting in lllinois, M innesota and Pennsylvania, she said, but other regions haven't gotten the word. She hopes to increase awareness of Teachers' Teams by joining with the NCEA, which represents the interests of those in Catholic schools and religious education programs. "These are Catholics' with, a strong sense of mission who teach in public schools. They need our support and organizational help," said Mike Carotta, NCEA religious education head. Carotta said one of the most persuasive arguments he heard came from a Teachers' Teams omember who saidshe'MIantedto be j, included whenher'parlsh'celebOrates. o'· Catechetical Sunday, which recognizes those who teach Christian values. "I bring my values to my job," she said. A typical Teachers' Team meeting might include a discussion of self-esteeJ!l, violence in schools, politics or a statement of the U.S. bishops. Participants wOl~ld .con-. sider how the topic relates to Scripture, the work of an educa-, tor, Catholic teachings and personal experiences, Ms. Whitehead said. One California group concen-; trated on the National Education Association's support for abortion, she said, discussing how that support affected them as members of the ,nation's largest teachers' organization who disagreed with the NEA over the topic or who thought its position inappropriate for secular educators. Eventually the team succeeded in changing their local NEA constitution to official neutrality on abortion. Ms. Whitehead said her own group tackled the topic of selfesteem, often a problem for teachers who find themselves blamed by parents, students and society for a wide variety of ills. After discussions, team members began a quiet campaign in their own schools to boost co-workers' esteem with notes, positive comments and other acts of kindness. "This is not about praying with kids in the hallway," Carotta said. "It's about teachers who don't participate in the negative talk around the table in the teacher's lounge; who'll go the extra mile for kids with problems; who promote kindness ,and virtue in the classroom and then° who pray together regularly. It's the same as a ministry." 0

Farm ]~roblems unchanged says Chavez successor DENVER (CNS) - Although stunned by the death of Cesar Chavez, the United Farm Workers union is moving forward to meet the challenges the late labor leader left behind. According to Arturo Rodriguez, the union's new president and Chavez's son-in-law, the issues remain the same. Those are just and safe working conditions for the workers who bridge the gap between field and market, protection against sexual harassment and child labor abuses, and access to health care. "It is a shame that in 1993, we face what we do today - even with a new [U.S.] president," said Rodriguez to participants in a National Conference on Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers held earlier this month in Denver. "Now we face efforts to exclude farm workers from national health care reform," he said. He was referring to a new.Washington state health plan that provides no coverage for them but has been touted as a model for a national plan. "Why can't the farmwor.ker be treated with the same dignity and respect that all of us expect when we go to work?" he asked. Rodriguez, 43, called farm work "one of the worst occupations in the country and the most hazardous. With the pesticides, the sexual harassment women have to put up with in order to keep their jobs and the abuse of clhild laborers, it is literally genocide." He reported success with the union's third grape boycott, which was initiated last year, and warned ofanupllca:rn~(,),g-cil-nlpaigri thatthe路'" Califotrlhi'"Pable"Gnip'e Growet~ " have developed to counter路 the boycott. The "sneak a grape" campaign, according to Rodriguez, will be made public soon. A marketing ploy designed to get people to sample free grapes in the grocery stores, the campaign hopes to win back the boycott participants, by showing them what they have been missing. "Beware of that campai'gn," cautioned Rodriguez. '''When you see it in the stores, you tell that store manager that you don't want that. Say, 'No grapes in '93 in honor of Cesar Chavez.'" Efforts to develop an active grape market in Hong Kong last year were quashed when Chavez took the boycott across the Pacific. The news of his death April 22



"Nonviolence is the most powerful weapon we have," Rodriguez said in Denver. "Cesar taught us that. Wewill continue that philosophy and count on volunteerism.

redoubled the boycott effort In Hong Kong, Rodriguez said. The growers "are in big trouble this year," he said. "Boycotts work. They are the way for poor people to do' things." According to .Rodriguez, the UFW has regrouped and formed "Ceasar's Team," a select group of union organizers and volunteers who will promote greater community involvement in issues that affect farmworkers and safe food production. Rodriguez's own interest in the farm worker cause began at age 16 when his pastor at St. Margaret Mary parish in San Antonio participated in a march led by Chavez in the Rio Grande Valley. After he earned a bachelor's degree from St. Mary's University in San Antionio and a master's in social work from the University of Michigan, he joined the UFW in 1971. Rodriguez was elected to the union's National Executive Board in 1981, becamefirst vice president in 1992 and was named to succeed Chavez on May 3. He is married to Chavez's daughter, Linda.

CYO basketball awards given Trophies and jackets were awarded to members of nine championship teams at the recent annual Fall River Area Cya Basketball Awards Banquet. Also, sportsmanship trophies went to Cristina DePina, Espirito Santo (Junior A Girls); Tina Boivin, St. Jean Baptiste (Junior B Girls); and, Mike, Barbosa,. aur Lady of Fati'ma, Swansea (Junior B Boys). Brian De Mello and Jessica Romeo received scholarships to the University of Massachusetts summer basketball camp. Banquet guest speakers were James Flint, assistant men's basketball coach, and Tony Barbee, senior cocaptain, from the'U niyersity of Massachusetts-Amherst. The two played key roles in the recent success of the UMass basketball team, which captured the Atlantic-IO regular season and tournament championships this year and last. Both times the team went to the NCAA tournament, last year advancing to the Sweet Sixteen Round. Barbee reminded the young players that to be successful in any endeavor they must have a goal. Flint, who started for St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia in the mid-1980s, said he was always an underdog as a youngster but had dreams which he worked hard to fulfill. To be successful in any field, one must be willing to sacrifice, he .said, and that has been a key to his own and his team's success. Father Jay Maddock, Fall River Area Cya director, was master of ceremonies for the banquet, planned by Vivian Burke. Special guests were Father Paul McCarrick, diocesan Cya director; Father Francis Mahoney, former area Cya director; park commissioner and Mrs. Gilbert Amaral; and Ken Ford. League referees were honored guests, as were assistant Cya directors John Medeiros, Charlie Medeiros, Rick LePage, Tom Coute and Adam Burns. Seventy-five teams in eight divisions with 800 participants took part in this year's Cya program.

As Cesar said, 'You can't work with the poor unless you are part of that struggle yourself.' "We need to know and believe that Cesar is here with us - help-

ing us to do his work and our own work," he added. "He gave us enough work to do for the next 100 years with all the dreams he put before us."

A vacation ideal, If June is near. can summertime be far behind? Summer doesn't officially begin until June 21, but if your vacation dreams are not firmed up by now, it may be too late. Whether your vacation ideal is a cabin, resort or campsite somewhere in the North Woods, you will find that many of the choicest locations are already reserved. Cancellations may be your only hope. Those of us who are regulars in the north country, who have found the perfect spot and settled there, are pretty much divided into two groups-renters or summer residents. My three brothers and one sister own lakeshore cabins which they've been tending ever since their kids were in diapers. I say tending because they seem to spend most of their time mowing the grass. fixing the plumbing, patching the roof. repairing the dock, starting the motorboat or entertaining visitors. My wife and I, on the other hand, rent a cabin at a family resort with a sandy beach for one week where all the work is done for us. We arrived at our present cabin after many years at the same resort, and we can now look out on Whitefish Lake in three directions. Owning a cabin or renting one year after year cuts down on other summer jaunts, but we like our spot so well that we leave it only for church, groceries and a dinner out. How can you top loafing, reading, eating. sleeping, or, if the flesh is strong, swimming,jogging, golfing, water skiing, wind surfing or playing volleyball? , I don't know about your vacation state. but Minnesota has so many lakes that it's easy to get them mixed up in making reserva-

He said that the statue, following the custom of the time at which it was made, originally had an opening in the chest used as tabernacle. Now it encloses a relic of the True Cross, inset in a golden medallion. Due to the veneration in' which the relic is held, said Father Oliveira, the st.atue is always covered with a canopy and escorted by can?les when it i~ carried in processIOn. . Concluding the festival observance, Bishop O'Malley was a concelebrant at a Sunday morning Mass at which Cardinal Ribeiro was principal celebrant and homiliest. In the following days he visited several villages and scenic areas of Sao Miguel and also went to the island of Terceira, where the cathedral church of the islands and the diocesan major seminary are located in the city of Angra do Heroi'smo. In a report on the feast, the Ponta Delgada ne:wspaper A~ori­ ano Oriental, nott:d "This year we have the honor of a visit from the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon and the Bishop of Fall River, a Franciscan who surely has seen the marks of the Franciscan spirit among his diocesans who were born on these nine islands." After discussing his Azorean experiences, Bishop O'Malley commented briefly on his hopes for greater outreach to the Portuguese community !in the Fall River diocese. Specifically, he said he is looking towards ill1creased Portuguese-language radio and television programming and establishment of the Cursillo retreat in Portuguese. Personally, he hopes for a return visit to the hospitable Azorean shores.

St. Joseph's School Fairhaven police chief Stephen Foster spoke to St. Joseph's School students about violence during a May 19 visit. After discussing the definition of violence, students were invited to enumerate emotions that can lead to violent actions. Frustration, anger and stress were among emotions discussed as students shared examples of violent incidents they have witnessed in their homes and the community. People must learn to deal with these powerful emotions in positive ways and release them in a healthy manner without injuring someone or damaging property, Chief Foster said, adding that everyone has the right to be free from harm and to keep their personal property safe. St. Joseph's students will continue to work to resolve conflict through dialogue, tolerance, positive channeling of anger and learning to compromise, In the wake of recent violence in local schools, St. Joseph's has established SAV(Students Against Violence) which meets monthly to educate students and faculty in nonviolence and to maintain a safe school environment. .
