VATICAN CITY (NC) - At a meeting that was more substance than ceremony, Pope John Paul II and President Bush exchanged views on the fighting in Lebanon, political changes in Poland and the outlook for East-West detente. Meanwhile Barbara Bush took time from official meetings and state dinners to serve lunch to 40 homeless women at a Vatican shelter staffed by Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity. After a 55-minute private audience May 27, Bush and the

pope delivered speeches that emphasized the importance 'of new opportunities for peace and human rights in the world. It was Bush's first meeting as president with the pope. Vatican officials, noting that the encounter came early in the Bush term, said it allowed the Holy See to, provide input on several important issues - especially Lebanon and the changing scene in Eastern Europe. Bush said he came away from the meeting committed to "redoubling our effo~ts, in every way pos-

sible, for world peace, for strengthening the family and for freedom of religion." The president said his 55-minute private conversation with the pope "was a talk that I'll long remember. I was again inspired by his moral and spiritual leadership." The pope, speaking to Bush and his 33~member entourage in the papal library, said recent world events had demonstrated that Turn to Page II

U.8. bishops to discuss their teaching role WASHINGTON (NC) - The U.S. bishops are to vote on statements on their own doctrinal responsibilities and on reconciliation between the United States and Vietnam when they hold their spring meeting June 16-19. The meeting, the first to be held at Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J., will also feature extended discussions on evangelization of black Catholics in the United States, integrating Catholic social teaching in'the church and society, and implementing the bishops' 1987 national pastoral plan for Hispanic ministry. A three-year, $360,000 plan to observe the 1992 fifth centenary of Christianity in the Americas is also up for a vote at the meeting, It includes plans for celebrations to culminate in an October 1992 visit by Pope John Paul II to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to meet with a convocation of bishops from throughout the Americas. Also to be voted on at the meeting are two clergy exchange agreements, one with the bishops of

Korea and one with the bishops of the Philippines. Although the meeting of about 250 bishops will last four days, only the first two are devoted to business sessions open to the press. The third day, Sunday, is a day of prayer and recollection, to be

led by Cardinal Godfried Danneels of Malines-Brussels, Belgium. June 19 will be devoted to an executive session closed to the press, according to an agenda released by the bishops' Office for Media Relations in Washington. -The office said a final press con-

ference would be held Saturday, June 17, after the last public session of the meeting. The document "Doctrinal Responsibilities: Approaches to Promoting Cooperation and Resolving Misunderstandings Between Bishops'and Theologians" has been

St. Mathieu's p,arish to close Bishop Daniel A. Cronin has announced closing ofSt. Mathieu's Parish in Fall River, effective June 25, 1989. Bishop Cronin explained that it was a painful decision to make; however, he stated that both the diocese an~ the parish must face the reality of declining vocations and the dwindling number of parishioners. The late Rev. Adrien E. Bernier, whom Bishop Cronin praised as a noble churchman, had continued to provide priestly ministry to the parishioners until last fall, when his terminal illness prevented him from doing so.

After Father Bernier's death, the diocese assessed the viability of ,the parish, consulting with parishioners and priests alike. "Although we must face the painful reality of closing this parish, its spirit will continue, not only in its rich history, but also in the people who have been affiliated with St. Mathieu's. Their faith was the essence of St. Matheiu's parish and that faith will continue in the many other parish communities that will receive them," said Bishop Cronin. The bishop thanked the parishioners for their gracious coop-

eration and prayerful spmt. He also thanked the priests of St. Anne's parisn, especially the Rev. John R. Foister, pastor, for their generous ministry to St. Mathieu's. , During June, parishioners are invited to register with a new parish community of their choice. St. Mathieu's records will be kept at St. Anne's parish, and the diocese will begin to take the necessary steps regarding disposition of the parish property. The last Mass to be said at the parish, on Sunday, June 25, will be offered for the repose of the soul of Father Bernier.

in various drafting stages since 1980. It was initially presented to the bishops for debate and a vote at the end of their meeting in November 1987. Atthat time, Denver Archbishop J. Francis Stafford wanted to return the document to the bishops' Committee on Doc-' trine for substantial revision, argu-. ing that it treated' the teaching authority and doctrinal responsibility of bishops too lightly. The bishops voted down his motion to return the document to the committee, but there were not enough bishops present to continue the meeting, so business was suspended. • In November 1988 the slightly revised document was again on the agenda but a last-minute letter from the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, expressing concern that portions of the document seemed to put bishops and theologians on the same level, led to its withdrawal.

First pope in A rctic Circle VATICAN CITY (NC) - Chalk up another first for the traveling pope: today John Paul II will become the first pontiff to cross the Arctic Circle when he visits the Norwegian town of Tromso. Crossing the Arctic Circle will put him within reach of slightly more than 600 of Norway's 20,000 Catholics, The fact points out the lengths to which the pope will have to go during his trip to five Nordic countries to find the sparse and scattered Catholic population in a region where Lutheranism is the dominant religion. The pope also will visit Iceland, Finland, Denmark and Sweden on his trip, which started yesterday and ends June 10. It will be the first papal visit to each of the five

countries, where the total number of Catholics is less than 200,000. Except for Sweden, which has more than 120,000 Catholics, the pope's followers in the other countries would easily fit into a section of the sports stadiums that often provide the venue for papal events. ,During the 10-day trip, the pope's itinerary calls for visits to 14 cities and towns in locations so far north that in June the sun hardly sets. The papal visit is expected to give a shot in the arm to the region's tiny Catholic minority, many of them either immigrants or refugees from central Europe and South America or descendants of immigrants and refugees. The trip will give the pope an opportunity to cement ecumenical

relations with Lutherans, 'send signals to the Soviet Union; he will be within 60 miles of the Soviet border while visiting Finland, a neutral country in superpower struggles; and strengthen waning religious values in a highly developed, secular and materially well-off society with roots in Christianity. The region's Christian roots go back to the Middle Ages. Catholicism was firmly established in four of the countries by the beginning of the II th century and in Finland during the 12th century. Currently, Lutheranism is either the state religion or the favored one throughout the five Nordic countries. It swept away CatholiTurn to Page Six

Valdez gets' another first

New head for oldest see

WASHINGTON (NC) - Valdez, Alaska, already famous for the' worst oil spill in history, now has a pleasanter claim to fame: it is the first place in the United States where a Catholic nun performed a marriage. . The nun, Mercy Sister Carol Ann Aldrich, is the leader of the Valdez Catholic communiiy in Valdez, but technically she performed the ceremony in a civil capllcity. A combination of fog, rain, a priest shortage and a provision in church law led to Sister Aldrich presiding at the May wedding of Stacey Smith and Rodney Mitchell at St. Francis Xavier Church in Valdez. The nun has been pastoral coordinator of the 90-family parish since last fall when the previous pastor was reassigned by his order. Archbishop Francis T. Hurley of Anchorage - who was to have assisted at the marriage but could not land his plane in Valdez because of bad weather - explained the details in a telephone interview. He said he invoked a provision in church law for mixed marriages - Mitchell is not Catholic under which a bishop can dispense the Catholic party from being married according to the canonical form ordinarily required by the church.

BALTIMORE (NC) - Bells rang out for 30 minutes May 23 as a procession of priests, deacons and ecumenical leaders opened the installation Mass for Archbishop William H. Keeler as head of the archdiocese of Baltimore, the nation's oldest see. Representing the Fall River diocese at the installation were·Bishop Daniel A. Cronin and Msgr. John J.

themoorin~ A Losers' Conflict Secretary of State James Baker's recent scolding of Israel at least caused the raising of an eyebrow in most diplomatic circles. It has been some time since a ranking AmericanWhite House official has dared to question the state of Israel on almost any subject. Of course, the Baker chiding will not send even minor shock waves across the killing fields of Paltestine. The world knows well that the United States cannot nor willabandon its de facto military and economic support of Israel, which receives a '$3 billion aid package from this country. About $1.8 billion goes to bolster military development and $1.2 to so-called economic assistance. Despite all the talk, no one in Washington or in Congress is about to change the way America does business with Israel because the political consequences would be disastrous. What is unique about the Baker statement is that a presidential cabinet member dared even to hint that Israel should change the way she treats her captive people. Even the media pundits were caught unaware by this chiding. Nevertheless, it happened and there must have been a reason. Be that as it may, Baker surfaced the feelings of many Americans in regard to the . . Palestinian question. In times when Russia is daring to show a new path to its own people and when China is tqying with new ideas, it's rather sad to see Israel stubbornly determined to enforce the status quo with the Palestinians and -refusing even the merest notion of compromise. Each day more and more Palestinians are aligning themselves with Islamic fanatics with all that implies, especially in the area of Pan-Arabian support. The Israeli response has been and continues to be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. However, David's slingshot has been replaced by today's sophisticated implements of war and the combatants are too consumed by hate to even think of peace. Unfortunately, the United States is once again caught in the middle and will continue to pay aheavy price for its position as evidence~ by the bombing of Pan American Flight #103. Although the governments of the world will brush aside Baker's reflection on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we should not. Realistic appraisals of the situation should be heard. It should be a source of hope that others might dare, even agains~ great odds, to offer solutions that might extricate the United . States from a hopeless entanglement. There is no doubt that the' Mideast situation will worsen. The fanatics are beginning to rule the day. For proof, one has only to look at suffering Lebanon. What is happening there can surface with explosive force anywhere else throughout the area. History teaches that it is nearly impossible to control religious fanaticism in any denomination; but it 'can be contained and moderated by purposeful and merciful actions . which heal and unite. However, such processes must come from within. They cannot be enforced or demanded. In the case of the Israelis and Palestinians, it would be well for the United States to heed this lesson. It is' obvious we cannot contain the conflict, nor should we inflame it. We should not continue to give to one side what we deny to the other. If we continue to follow this policy, in the long run the American people will be the real losers. Baker's words ~ight have been minimal; the danger is real and maximum.

Such personality evolution takes time and is usually assisted by caring friends. Balance is another quality of the well-designed life. A variety of interests inoculates us against boredom, which can be a deadly enemy. Many people who have suffered through the agony of addiction testify that boredom was one of the factors wreaking havoc in their lives. Young people, especially, need a dramatic challenge to help them prove themselves and feel that their lives have meaning. . Without the right blend of unity and variety, one can become an out-of-balance person, even a fanatic. Such people may help to raise consciousness but they rarely succeed in making needed changes.

Balance is especially valuable in the political arena. When out-of-balance people ·hold important positions, we may' all suffer. Last March 24, when Captain Joseph Hazelwood allegedly had too much to drink and overestimated the abilities of his. third mate, the Exxon Valdez went aground, spilling millions of gallons of oil and contaminating some 700 miles of Alaskan shoreline. We may never make so dramatic a mistake but all of us have been guilty of negligence at one time or another. Too often we travel on automatic pilot until we are forced to face a crisis and may need to turn to others to heJp clean up the mess or disharmony we have brought into our lives or into those of others. Perhaps if we regarded our lives as serious works of art in the making and cherished them as we do the work ofa Da Vinci or a Michelangelo, it would make a difference. At the sign of peace at Mass we implicitly recognize the beauty of our·fellow worshipers. The root of "shalom," the Hebrew word for J1ea~e, means to be intact, com'plete, put together inside. . To greet someone with "Shalom" means to wish him wholeness, to hope that he is filled with the happiness that comes from being in harmony with self, others, nature and God. Ii is' asking that' his life be·a work of art.

Wedding woes Several years ago we visited friends at their simple lake cabin and had a wonderful day with them. They live in a part of the country where the weather is pleasant only three months or so a year and it was obvious they loved escaping to their lake life for the weekend. "Do you come out here a lot in the summer?" I asked innocently and knew right away it was the . wrong questIOn. They stared at each other f Oli a full minute and then he said, "This . the f'Irst time .. IS thiS summer. Too damn many weddings." ' d' d She became d efenSlve an tne ' d I to so ften hiS wor s." t seems l'k I e · d' ' , k'd a II our fnen s an d re Iatlves I s are getting married and that's taken all our Saturdays. John doesn't think we have to go to all of them but I know they'd be hurt if we didn't." We were close enough friends to be able to talk about it freely. Obviously, it was a source of contention between them. He worked in a hot and dirty job all week and longed to get away to the lake on Saturday but they both came from large families and were of an age where the nieces and nephews had reached the marrying age. I understood both sides and was sorry for them. They had saved and worked hard for their lake getaway but they couldn't get away.

We got into a discussion on how command a performance is a wedding. We agreed that family wedding attendance is important but disagreed on weddings of friends' children. I even remarked that in this age of expense some friends may feel called upon to invite us but might be happy if we send . regrets. The other half of our friends' problem was that she enjoyed weddl'ngs but he dl'dn't _ a fal'rly common couple problem, I've noted. • If there aren't many close friends there or if the ones who are there . are fellow workers, it can be just another day for a lot of men. And we all deserve a day off at the end of the week. Living farfrom our relatives, we have the opposite problem. We miss the wedding fun, the reunions )Vith relatives, and the joy that family weddings bring. We get to a few, but not many. I don't believe that weddings are command performances, though, and that if they steal our summer relaxation from us, we need to send regrets now and then. Invitations shouldn't imply mandatory attendance. A Simple note to the effect that we have other plans should take care of hurting others' feelings, especially if they are real friends.

When we hand our schedules over to others because of the guilt they instill in us, we are handing our lives over to them.

without a priest

JOHN DIETZEN

Q. My question concerns celebrating a Sunday liturgy without a priest. A friend of mine in Maine says it happens in their area, but I am confused. How are such services performed without a priest? Is a lay person allowed to read the Gospel, give a homily and follow the exact format as an ordained priest, excluding only the consecration? I am confused. (British Columbia)

A. Sunday liturgies without a priest are occurring in ,increasing numbers in many countries. This must baffle Catholics who quite rightly have always considered celebration of the Eucharist an integral part of the Sunday worhsip. As you know, the eucharistic liturgy has been essentialfor Christians from the beginning, We cannot even imagine the development of a custom which would contra.dict that tradition. Apparently, until the church discovers some way of dealing with

Perhaps, then, parishes might consider a program on "Revisiting Symbolism in Our Lives." If some symbols have been lost, surely others are taking their place. What are they? To explore Christian symbolism is to explore ties that bind. A living community is one with a shared language of symbols.

ordained to preside at the Eucharist, the phenomenon you ask about will continue to grow. The bishops of your' country (Canada) established a ceremony and policy for Sunday liturgies conducted by lay people or others who are not priests as long ago as 1981. The Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship issued a "Directory for Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest" in June 1988. The U.S. bishops' Committee on the Liturgy now is preparing such a ritual for our countr'y, based on that Vatican Directory. Generally these rituals call for a Liturgy of the Word similar to the one at Sunday Mass, with some form ofthanksgiving prayer (which, as you indicate, is not to be in the form of the eucharistic prayers of our present missal), a communion rite and concluding prayers. According to a survey sponsored

PLUMBING/HEATING

by our bishops last year, 70 dioceses in the United States have parishes or missions under the administration of a deacon, lay person or a religious sister or brother. Thirty-one ofthese dioceses had Sunday worship without a priest during 1987, Leaders of Sunday prayer in. almost all of these dioceses have been authorized to preach as well as read the Gospel and other Scriptures. Statistics are yet higher in a number of other countries in Europe and Africa. More detailed information for Canada, including instructions and complete rituals, is available from the Canadian Catholic Conference (90 Parent Avenue, Ontario KIN7NBl). As I indicated, similar documents for the United States are not yet available.

ANCONA, Italy (N C) - Citing good conduct, Italian authorities have granted a two-year reduction in the life sentence being served by Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who shot Pope John Paul II in 1981. Authorities in Ancona cited "irreproachable conduct" by the 3 F year-old papal assailant, who is in a maximum security prison in nearby Ascoli Piceno. Based on previous Italian cases, legal observers estimated that Agca would be released after serving 24 years, or in 2005. He could qualify for four additional years by meeting good conduct requirements. Agca was arrested immediately after the shooting in St. Peter's Square May 13, 1981. He confessed to the attack, which seriously wounded the pope and two women. Years later, Agca claimed he was part of a plot involving other Turks and Bulgarian agents. At a trial based on those accusations, however, Agca was uncooperative and eventually refused to testify. The defendants were acquitted and released.

Facejacts Dear Editor: After watching Tom Brokaw's follow-up discussion of Roe vs. Wade on NBC, I realized something about pro-choice. Advocates of abortion as a solution to unwanted pregnancy have rationalized and intellectualized the reality of abortion. To them, abortion is a sort of eraser that wipes out a mistake, and then the woman can go on as if nothing really happened. . Too bad we can't say the same for the aborted baby. He or she . cannot just pick up his or her life and go on. The unborn baby's reality ends in the death-dealing procedures of abortion.·1t is final. An "I'm sorry" won't change it. But then, the intellectuals counter with semantics - "a fetus is not a baby." They also say,how cruel we are.to advise a woman that she would do better, to have the baby and give it up for adoption to someone who really does want it. Yet they are not cruel for advocating death to the unborn. Will ,things change when abortion' is routinely done for, gender selection? Will we have gone too far then? Or will there be another rationalization to oil our consciences? Let us face facts. There is no such thing as being "only a little bit pregnant," and human beings conceive human beings. Abortion ends the fetal life of a human being. Janice Vinci New Bedford

The Anchor Dear Editor: Waiting eagerly for my weekly copy of The Anchor, I get more and more fascinated with the title because of its thought-inspiring direction to the daily changes in this storm-swept world floundering in every form of life attempting to tear down God's kingdom. Weekly we meet The Anchor and for us, the faithful, another version of an anchor, the seaman's key, comes to mind. The anchor keeps his ship from drifting or being swept away. Alone, the anchor needs to be held by something stronger than itself. Here is where we take our stand. Let not the changes, as we see them in the life of all of us, get us lost in the turmoil. For us, we look to the only safe anchorage as we profess our Faith, the supernatural gift of God, and witli this st~onghold we cannot be deceived by what the world offers. See, Father Moore, what The Anchor is doing for me as well as the mariy way's being offered,'on page after page, in our diocesan weekly for 'its readers to ponder.

The Unspoken Word I never got to call you "Ma." At the beginning of time, when we were all waiting to be, I waited my turn. Grandma had her turn. You had your turn. But when it came to me, you decided I would be too much trouble. I shouldn't be born. Your feminist rights were at stake. I waited for you to make the decision that you thought was yours alone to make. You didn't care about God, who planned the universe and each one of us. You didn't care about Daddy. As you and I walked to that abortion clinic, I knew what it meant. And where there had been light and warmth before, darkness began to descend and as I left you, perhaps you could feel my pain for the word that would never be spoken, "Ma." Jeanne M.

WASHINGTON (NC) - Convincing U.S. Catholic couples tb follow church teachings on ma~­ riage and family life requires ap. expla,nation of those teachings ani:! not simply asserting that "the pope says so," said the vice president df an institute focusing on the theology of marriage and family. I Carl A. Anderson, vice presiderit of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Famlily, said the church's understand!ing of the human person and of God's creation needs to be exL plained to Catholics before many of them will follow the teachings! Anderson is also vice-president for public policy of the Knights olf Columbus, which is funding th~ institute's Washington campus, l where classes began last Septembe~. It is the first branch campus of the Rome-based institute. I The number of Catho"Jic couples using artificial means of birth cont trol, Anderson said, shows "how much work needs to be done" i~ , educating pebple about the ChriSt tian vision of marriage and famil)' life. I "It is a very complicated issue that has to be looked at from phiL losophy, theology, sociology, etc.f to begin to understand why the church teaches this," Andersort said during interview with National I Catholic News Service. "The answer isn't really 'the pop¢ says so.' The answer has to b~ fiIIed out with an understanding of Christian life, theology and spiritut ality.". I Before becoming an official of the institute and the Knights, Andert son, 37, held positions in the office of Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., at the U.S. Department of Healttl and Human Services and at tht White House. He said strengthening family life, improving educa1 tion and upholding pro-life valueJ were the focus of his government ...... I work.

Anderson, who has been a visiting professor at the institute in Rome, wiII teach courses on family law and on laws related to bioethics, human rights issues and population policies. In the interview at his Washington office, Anderson described himself as "one of those pro-life activists who came to Washington and stayed." His pro-life activism began while he was an undergraduate at Jesuitrun Seattle University and worked against a 1970 Washington state referendum legalizing abortion. • After receiving a degree from the University of Denver College of Law, he and his wife, Dorian, moved to the nation's capital, where he became legislative assistant on pro-life issues to Helms. After five years in Helms' office, Anderson moved to a position as a legal counselor in the Department of Health and Human Services, where he helped develop policies for the medical treatment of severely handicapped infants. In April 19l52 "Baby Doe," an IndIana newborn with Down's syndrome, died of starvation after the baby's parents refused to allow surgery to correct a blocked esophagus. Anderson worked with HHS officials, physicians and others in preparing what became the 1984 federal regulations barring discrimination against handicapped newborns. In 1983 he moved to the White House Office of Policy Development helping formulate Reagan administration policies on pro-life,

population control and family Issues. Anderson co-chaired the White House Working Group on the Family which held hearings and researched the overall situation of U.S. families and the impact on families of various government policies, such as welfare or federal tax laws. The group's work led to President Reagan's September 1987 executive order requiring federal agencies to review all current and proposed activities and policies on the basis oftheir impact on families. "That was something I was I~cky to participate in," Anderson said. "It recognizes that people live in families," and that their dreams and aspirations are tied up with a desire to improve the quality oflife for their families. In 1985 Anderson moved to the president's public liaison office and· was appointed acting director in 1987. His "swan song" there was coordinating Reagan's September 1987 meeting with Pope John Paul II in Miami. "I can look back on my government service with a certain sense of accomplishment," said Anderson, who joined the Knights' staff in . December 1987. "Government service is really taxing on one's family and family commitment," he said, adding that it's difficult to leave a White House meeting to attend a Cub Scout dinner. Working for the Knights, he said, meant continued pro-life involvement, as well as pro-family activities at work and at home.

SOVTH BEND, Ind. (NC) Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland -- of Milwaukee recently told a Notre Dame Vniversity Conference that the historic Latin American church meetings of Medellin and Puebla have had a great impact on the V.S. church. He cited as examples of the influence of the Latin American church: - Entry by the church in the V nited ~tates into a "post-modern period," in which it was no longer maintained that unaided human reason would be able to create a perfect world. \ _ - V.S. Catholics' involvement in movements including Renew, in which Catholics meet in small groups that have been compared to Latin America's basic ecclesial communities. - Growth o(black and feminist theologies of liberation in the V nited States. - Emphasis on a "preferential option for the poor" that, he said, was "brought into the common 'parla'riceOfthe chiIrcheS'" by -fhe Medellin and Puebla conferences. The Notre Dame conference commemorated the 1968 and 1969 meetings of the Latin American Bishops' Council, known by its Spanish acronym of CELAM, in Medellin, Colombia, and in Puebla, Mexico. In his speech, the archbishop said that "one cannot underestimate" the impact of information provided in the past 30 years to American Catholics by V.S. mis- . sionaries to Latin America. "Even bishops in the Vnited States who were more conservative in theological matters began to assess the situation of the church in Latin America in a different way because of the witness of, members of their, own dioceses, people whom they knew and trusted and who were working for and with the churches and local leadership in Latin America," he said, V .S. missionaries to Latin America, Archbishop Weakland said, also brought to the V .S. church "a more sympathetic and experiential appreciation... of liberation theology." He said their"interest and enthusiasm" made it possible for many major works of liberation theolo-

Vatican officials had said the Later, the president introduced pope a1so'planned to strongly raise the members of his entourage to the issue of Lebanon during the the pope, quietly describing what

each one did. The atmosphere was cordial and friendly, with the pope warmly greeting the officials and sharing laughter with Bush. At the end of the ceremony, the president and his wife, Barbara, presented the pope with a gift of a silver bowl and plate. Bush had what he called "a touch of America" after the papal meeting when he greeted some 250 seminarians, priests, religious and Catholic laity in Ii Vatil!an hall. He was given an ovation by the crowd, which iflcluded top U.S. Vatican officials. . Mrs. Bush During her visit to the Vatican shelter, Mrs. Bush spooned out rigatoni with tomato sauce as Archbishop Cassidy held plates for her. She then served salad, bread and strawberries to the homeless women before going upstairs in the building to visit several bedridden residents. The 72-bed hostel, at the edge of the Vatican's border with Italy, was opened last year by Pope John Paul II as a gift to the Missionaries of Charity. Mrs. Bush heard about the initiative and asked if she could make a low-key visit to the facility. Mrs. Bush later said she was impressed by the church-run shelter. "It was magnificent. There was great warmth, affection and love, and it did not smell like an institution. It was wonderful," she told reporters. When she arrived, Mrs. Bush was greeted by the 65-year-old doorkeeper, Adelina Lunati, who thrust a bouquet of flowers into the first lady's hands and welcomed her "to the house given by the Holy Father to us poor." Mrs. Lunati, white-haired and nearly toothless, said she had been abandoned at the age of 10 months in an orphanage and had been poor ever since. She said being doorkeeper is "the greatest joy I have - I'm like St. Peter, 1open to the sick and the poor." Residents applauded as Mrs. Bush greeted the four nuns who run the house and two American novices who were helping out over the weekend. The Americans iden-

volunteers at a neonatal ward in Eugene, Ore., a producer staging plays for the homeless in New York City, counselors at a home for runaways in Nashville, Tenn., and a Peace Corps volunteer who was a veterinarian in Africa. Those featured are ordinary people. Their unselfishness costs them leisure time, but their rewards are found in the meaning and depth of . their lives. The.documentary confronts worldly wisdom with the testimony ofthose who respect the dignity of the human spirit. Its title is taken from Jesuit philosopher Teilhard de Chardin, who wrote: "Some day, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love. And then, for the second time in the history of . the world, humankind will have discovered fire."

The shelter residents were for the most part middle-aged or elderly. Some were still in the old· and frayed clothing they wore when they lived on the Roman streets.

"They know it's a festive day, but I don't think they know it's Mrs. Bush," she said.

\XASHINGTON (NC) - A "think tank" of 40 Hispanic leaders recently met to develop guidelines for small ecclesial or base communities called for in a 1987 Hispanic pastoral plan approved by the V.S. bishops. The plan urged creation of base communities within parishes and . recommended developing parish Hispanic teams to go door to door visiting Hispanics as ways to slow loss of Hispanic Catholics to fundamentalist sects. Participants in the "think tank," listed attributes they thought small ecclesial communities should possess, among them: .

to Protestant churches because th~y feel the "giant majestic churches <?f the Anglos" are impersonal. Base communities, she said, can "petsonalize" Catholic parishes. I Father Lorenzo Ruiz said 12 small communities he had worke~ with, at Holy Family parish ip Albuquerque, N.M., "transforme(l the entire parish" and'community. There were no sidewalks an'd inadequate drainage in the poqr Hispanic neighborhood in which the church was located, he said. When it rained the streets woul~ flood and children walking to school would arrive with their clothes covered with mud. : As a result, he said, they werle frequently sent home for clean clothes. Parents' participating ih, church communities were concerned their children were missing school and angered that the city was not preventing the flooding.

Miss Cuadra said that in the diocese of Raleigh small commudities have helped to unite Puertb Rican, Colombian and Peruvia~ residents who are mainly well,educated professionals, and poor Mexican and Salvadoran season~l migrant· workers who work oil area tobacco farms. '. I The relationship of the professionals to the migrants is "not p~-' ternalistic, but one of genuine friendship; she said. I Father Ruiz said one stumbling block to creation of small communities nationwide is fear on thb . part of some "burned-out" pries~s "that this is one more programi' they must cpordinate. I But, he said, "I can assure you this is a model of church in which the priest doesn't have to do ever~thing." In his experience, he sai~, small ecclesial or base communities foster lay leadership and help to decrease the priest's duties. I In Latin America, such communities have thrived among thf rural and urban poor and stress action to overcome poverty ana what members see as unjust soci~tal "ructure,. I

Graduates challenged: end "drug train" nightmare

By Father Joe Felker It is prom time. It is time for

end-of-the-year graduation events and a general winding down ofthe school year. It is a time when we can become very centered on ourselves and our school's customs,'or we can expand and see beyond to new ideas and new options for celebrating these events. At a recent high school retreat I was talking with some juniors and seniors after supper. "Are you going to the prom?" "How much are you spending?" "Where are you going for dinner'!" These were the main topics of discussion. I said, "I'm going to the prom this year." After a couple of startled looks, someone said, "Who is taking you?" I responded "I'm a chaperone and will be there for the Mass before." To which I heard, "Oh." Yes, at least one Catholic school has a prom Mass for the,couples, their parents and staff. Afterward, the couples go out to dinner and then on to' the dance. It is a nice ",ay of reminding everyone that our religious belief and val,ues touch all aspects of our lives. A few of those going to the prom record ~hat they ~pend and give 10 percent of the total to th~ church or a charity. The cost of a dress or tuxedo, shoes; flowers" dinner, hairstyling and the pro in itself can easily come to '$400 or $500. Giving $40 or $50 fo church or a charity is a nice offer-ing to help a wor.thy cause. Another school has an aftergraduation party. It costs $25 for the evening of fun, food, games, movies and prizes, ending with a nice breakfast. Besides the admission fee, the public school collects canned goods and usable clothing for local food pantries and church shops for the poor.

A very clear message is given. In all we do - in our celebrations, in our lives - we should share with the less fortunate. Several parishes in my area recognize graduating seniors at a Sunday liturgy, followed by breakfast for them and their parents. The graduates help plan the liturgy and are lectors, giftbearers and so forth. Again, it is a way for the parish to celebrate with its young people. A special blessing is given as the seniors move on to college, vocational schools and fulltime jobs. Often the junior class is involved in the breakfast, ushering and serving at this event. Finally, let's look at the long break of s'ummer. Is there some way to keep connected to parish activities? Is there a summer school program in need of volunteers? Are senior high students needed to help with junior high fun activities? Has your parish service projects you can be involved in? ',' The parish really needs teenagers willing to share their time, talent and treasure. Teens are important members ofthe community. So, what about it? How will you celebrate the prom, the ending of the school year arid the movement into summer break? Will you share. in a significant way with others at this time? I hope the answer is yes. Folks need your energy and enthusiasm. The church needs you.

MIAMI (NC) - When students ,0fSt. Thomas University in Miami graduated in May, they received a lecture on drug abuse. Jesuit Father William J. Byron, president qf The Catholic University of America in Washington, said he was speaking about drugs instead of usual commencement topics "without apology" because the "drug train" hurtling through the country is a national "nightmare." It is a problem "that awaits a creative remedy froni you, the next generation of leaders in this great country of ours," he said. Father Byron argued that resolving the drug crisis requires looking at the reasons behind the demand for drugs. He cited three main causes for the demand: - Everyone's desire for a "high," which comes easily from drugs, but at the cost of dependency, and far less easily from "athletic, academic, artistic or other achievements." - The desire to avoid physical or psychological pain in a culture that "encourages escape at any price" from pain, disappointment, discouragement and monotony.

RENE DICKHAUT of CoyIe-Cassidy was named Division 3 Player of the Year on the All-Scholastic girls' basketball team chosen annually since 190 I by Boston Globe sports reporters.

Child aid 'asked WASHINGTON (NC) - The U.S. Catholic Conference has asked the Senate to support an amendment allowing low- and moderateincome parents to get government aid for, child care even at a religious facility. Frank J. Monahan of the USCC's Office of Government Liaison, said the amendment to the Act for Better, Child Care "would allow parents ,the right to select the day care provider of their choice." , The act, if passed, 'would provide grants to nonprofit agencies to expand child care and would give child care :certificates to lowincome working parents.

:For the homeless ,

chological pains of growing up can make drugs attractive. "To the adolescent eye, everyo~e else is happy, except me. All others feel good about life and about themselves; I'm the only one with the problem," he said. He asked the graduates "to consider what you might do in the years ahead - as parents, helping professionals or just friends - to put yourselves ,between some adolescents and their problems." He suggested that' underlying the demand for drugs in the United States ,are cultural attitudes that must be overcome. "Do not be taken in by the big lie our culture of consumerism perpetuates," he said. "Do not believe that to have is to be, that to have more is to be more fully human, and, worst lie of all, to live easily is to live happily. "Life will be painful at times. Bear it, and in the burden you bear, you will find happiness." , He urged the graduates to realize their own" infinite worth, regardless of what you do or what you have." . "I hope you will communicate this realization by word, action and the commitment of your concern and time to others, especially to the young, ,as your personal contribution to the reduction of the demand side of the drug problem in America," he said. "If demand reduces to zero," he added, "supply no ,longer remains a threat."

- Do they recognize that violence is too often the problemsolving method of first resort? - Do young girls buy into television's false message that a middle-aged man can be a sex symbol, but that for a woman to be a sex symbol, she must be under 30? Singer concl uded that more research is 'needed on the impact of TV viewing, but warned parents against letting television's purveyors of violence and commercialism become dominant influences on their children. He asked if parents were prepared to monitor, control and discuss the medium so that their own family values might prevail. Singer's right on, but it also seems that parents, especially in families with two wage-earners, need help and that the schools could shoulder some responsibility here. Certainly religious edu'cation teachers should pay attention to anything shaping values. To be literate today is not only to understand how the printed word communicates meaning, bUt also to know how society's dominant medium, television, transmits its messages and vision of reality. Making sure young people can distinguish between authentic and non-authentic visions of life is not only a media literacy issue but a,lso a religious issue, important to both classroom teachers and parish religious educators.
