FALL RIVER - As the last full week of the Catholic Charities Appeal was drawing to a close Appeal headquarters announced that it had surpassed the $3.5 million dollar mark and hopefully was on its way to eclipsing last year's total of $3,947,000. The Appeal formally closes its books at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21. As this edition of The Anchor went to press the phones were ringing off the hook at Appeal headquarters with parishes calling in their most recent totals, and advising them as to what they would be doing in the final few days to guarantee their parish exceeded its previous year's total. "What has become a 'benchmark' over the past few years is the level of effort that parishes have shown right up until the very last few minutes of the Appeal", said Mike Donly, director of Development for the diocese.

WASHINGTON (CNS) - Getting the world's wealthy nations to pony up billions of dollars to cancel debt and to finance relief and development, particularly in Africa, fs shaping up as a theme for the' global stage this summer. And that "stage" is the artistic sort, as well as the political kind. In Washington, London and Brussels in early June, presidents, prime ministers and pop stars outlined their approaches to eliminating global poverty.

Blair in July will become chairman of the G-8, made up of the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, Canada and Russia, Blair's Commission for Africa, a panel convened to determine how to defeat poverty in Africa, has recommended that wealthy nations cancel the debt ofthe poorest countries in Africa and double economic aid to the continent.

At the White House, President George

ternational community to increase emergency humanitarian aid for Africa and announced the United States would contribute an additional $674 million. Blair said the United States and Britain share "a real and common desire to help that troubled continent come out of the poverty and deprivation that so many millions of its people suffer. In a situation where literally thousands of children die from preventable diseases every day, it's our duty to act, and we wilL" The Catholic Campaign Against Global Poverty, a joint project of Catholic Relief Services and the U.S. Conference ofCatholic Bishops, also is encouraging people to push to cancel the debts poor countries owe to the World Bank and other financial institutions, which requires the agreement of the Group of Seven, the G-8 countries minus Russia.

Notes From the Hill This briefsynopsis ofpolitical goings on in Boston and Washington is provided by the MassacI",setts Catholic Conference (MCC), the public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state and governed by the bishops in each ofthe dioceses in the Commonwealth. New effort on marriage underway BOSTON - A recently formed ballot question committee,, has launched a new campaign to pass a constitutional amendment in Massachusetts giving voters a clean vote on defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman. Supporters ofthis new amendment hope to defeat another amendment authored by Senate President Robert Travaglini that would impose a constitutional mandate to create same-sex civil unions equal to marriage. The new amendment reads: "When recognizing marriages entered after the adoption of this amendment by the people, the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions shall define marriage as only the union of one man and one woman."

The Roman Catholic Bishops of the four dioceses in Massachusetts back this new amendment to the state constitution. Supporters have to collect at least 66,000 signatures this fall to bring it before the state legislature next year. At least 51 out of the total of200 state legislators have to approve it in two different constitutional conventions. If that is accomplished, then the amendment goes to the voters in 2008. The legislature approved the Travaglini amendment once already last year; and is expected to take it up again later this year. Since it was introduced by legislators, and not through an initiative petition, it would need 101 legislators' votes to be placed on the 2006 ballot. The new amendment introduced by would require state officials to issue future marriage licenses only to couples consisting of one man and one woman. It would prohibit judges or town clerks from redefining marriage again and prevent the legislature from creating samesex marriage by statute. . The new amendment would do nothing beyond fixing the legal definition of future marriages. It

would not affect any previously recognized marriage or alter any existing rights. Any marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples before the amendment is approved by the voters in 2008 would continue to be legal. The amendment would be prospective, not retroactive. . Npr would the new amendment prohibit the state from recognizing civil unions or domestic partnerships. The complex task of fashioning benefits and determining which persons should receive them would remain with the legislature. ·Some questions for Catholics may arise. By not abolishing existing same.-sex marriages or not b~nning same-sex civil unions, does the new amendment fail to go far enough, making support for this approach morally problematic? This question requires a careful assessment of the political arid

"When you see parishes that exceeded their previous year's total two and three weeks ago working up until the very end, not to make their parish look good but simply to solicit all the money and support they can for the Appeal itself, it is the utmost sign of charity and selflessness. You could have all 96 parishes exceed their goals, but if that was all they were concerned about the Appeal would remain basically stagnant from year to year and would never be able to keep up with the increasing demands being put upon it by those in need across southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and the Islands. It is because 'they look beyond themselves and their parish' that they continue to strive right up until the very end to make certain the agencies funded by the Appeal have the resources nec-

essary to be as effective as possible ministering to the thousands in need who look to the Diocese of Fall River for assistance," continued Donly. Contributions to the Appeal can be made either through a one-time donation or through a pledge, which is payable monthly, quarterly or semi-annually. For those wishing to use a credit card for their donation or pledge MasterCard, Visa, and American Express are accepted. Donations to the Appeal can be sent to the Catholic Charities Appeal Office, P.O. Box 1470, Fall River, Mass. 02722; dropped off at any parish in the diocese; or can be made on the Appeal Website: For information, visit the Website or contact the Appeal office 'at 508-675-1311.

amendllent. [fsuch tolerance is pennissible, then why not support the Travaglini amendment? It would also define marriage as only the union between one man and one woman. While the Travaglini amendment expressly recognizes same-sex civil unions, could Catholics still vote for it at the ballot box by saying they only "tolerate" the objectionable language? Here the analysis must take into account the actual function of the Travaglini amendment. Currently, same-sex civil unions are not recognized in Massachusetts. The Travaglini amendment would create this new legal status and then


require it to be treated exactly the sam\,? as marriage. Its adoption would block any efforts to restrict civil unions in the legislature. Thus, a vote for this amendment at the ballot box would go beyond tolerance. It would cause an objectionable wrong - the new legal status ofcivil unions for same-sex couples - to come into being. The new amendment must be preferred over'the Travaglini amendment. Signature collection will take. place between September 21 and November 23 this year.

heat" on the G-8 leaders. The concerts, known as Live 8, wil1 be broadcast worldwide. Irish rock musician and producer Bob Geldofannounced the free concerts would be held as a fol1ow-up to the Live Aid concerts he organized in 1985 to raise $100 million for Attican poverty relief. Twenty years later "it strikes me as being moral1y repulsive and intel1ectual1y absurd that people die of want in a world of surplus," Geldof said at a recent press conference in London. The concerts in Philadelphia, Paris, Rome, Berlin and London wil1 be free, Geldof said, because "we don't want people's money. We want them." The concerts will include some ofthe world's best-known performers: Paul McCartney; U2 and Coldplay; Stevie Wonder; Crosby, Stills and Nash; Andrea Bocelli; Snoop Dogg and Tim McGraw; and others.

Geldof's feilow Irishman, U2 lead singer Bono, has long worked the halls of the U.S. Congress and the national legislatures of Europe and Canada on debt relief and related issues. In an address in Brussels, Bono challenged leaders ofthe European Union to forget national politics and take advantage of the momentum building in support of debt reliefand development aid. "People are dying for the most stupid reasons," he said. "These are. avoidable catastrophes." Geldofsaid one theme ofLive 8 will be to encourage people to go to Edinburgh, Scotland, for a massive ral1y July 6 as the G-8 leaders gather there July 6-8. Pope Benedict XVI was invited to participate in the Live 8 gathering in Edinburgh. However, a June 9 statement from the Vatican said the pope's first foreign trip would be in August to World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany.

Pope Benedict says traditional family must be defended, helped

CHILDREN FROM St. Edward Parish in Lowell, Ind., pray in front of the Eucharist during a children's holy hour at their church recently. St. Edward started a children's prayer hour to coincide with monthly First Friday Benediction. With an adult leader, children gather around the altar, where they pray, sing and discuss their faith.

The pope's speech to the Dio- cision about a definitive gift in cese of Rome's annual convention which freedom, freely given, finds at the Basilica of St. John Lateran its fullest expression," he said. "The various modem forms of was the most extensive of his three interventions on the family in three the dissolution of marriage - like free unions, 'trial marriages' and the days. Pope Benedict told the diocesan pseudomarriage between persons of convention that contrary to what the same sex - are expressions of many people think today marriage an anarchic freedom," he said. What many people today think is not a "casual sociological construction," but a reflection of the of as freedom is a way of acting truth about the human person, the based on the idea that each person meaning oflife and the relationship should do whatever he or she wants, ofhuman beings with the God who whenever he or she wants, paying created them out of love and for no attention towhat it means to have been created male and female and love.

Just as understanding the full openness to having children also are a reflection of the identity of the meaning of human sexuality rehuman person as an "indissoluble" quires an acknowledgment of the human vocation to love, so the true unity of body and spirit. "Man is a soul which expresses meaning of parenthood can be itself in the body and a body that is grasped only when seen in the light given life by an immortal spirit," he of love, Pope Benedict said. The pope said it is "contrary to said.

Pope Benedict said the Church's obligation to help build strong families must not stop with defending marriage, preparing engaged couples and helping married couples in crisis. The fundamental role ofparents to educate their children in the faith, in morality and in good citizenship also is under attack today, he said. "A particularly insidious obstacle to education today," he said, "is the massive presence in our society and culture ofthat relativism, which recognizes nothing as definitive, leaving as the ultimate standard only the individual and his or her desires." The pope said that without guidance a person's individuality and desires end up "being a prison," rather than freedom. Meeting at the Vatican with pilgrims from the Diocese of Verona, Italy, Pope Benedict said it was right that concern for the family was at the center oftheir diocese's recently concluded synod. "In your diocese, as is the case elsewhere, the number of divorces and irregular unions has increased, and this is an urgent call to Christians to proclaim and witness to the Gospel oflife and of the family in its entirety," the pope said. Pope Benedict said that, despite the problems all couples face and the "social and cultural conditioning" that currently seems to encourage couples to split, "Christian spouses have not stopped being a sign of the faithful love ofGod." Also, Pope Benedict confirmed the convocation of the Fifth World Meeting of Families in July 2006 in Valencia, Spain. Pope John Paul II had convoked the gathering. o

Do first the thing you don't want to do By KASE JOHNSTUN CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE "Do the thing you don't want to do first," I have heard a million times. I tend to agonize over something I don't want to do until I get to the point that I won't do it. It is amazing how many other little things you can distract yourself with while avoiding something important. Rearranging my music selection from alphabetical to the order of the lead singer's birthday is not a priority, but it happens when I don't feel like being responsible enough to dive head first into household chores or homework. Truth is, the agony and the

stress of putting off my responsibilities really create agony and stress about putting things off, and that agony and stress really stress me out, so I continue to agonize. Just starting the thing you don't want to do - household chores, exercising, homework, visiting grandma, taking your little sister to the park or even getting up out of bed to go to school - will move you along the road toward alleviating the agony and stress that procrastination brings. Trust me: When college rolls around, procrastination becomes easier and easier. So nip it in the bud now or you will spend every night between 12 and 4 a.m. finishing homework

for your early morning class. I have a friend, Kristen, who all the way through high school didn't get started on her homework until 10 at night. -I)<~



Coming of flge

Ten will become midnight as she begins her collegiate run next fall, and I can't wait for the stories. "I just can't get rolling until 10," she always tells me. Personally, I know there are many of you out there


like me who will miss their "window" if they don't get started on their responsibili-, ties by six or seven in the evening. What do I mean by "window"? The space shuttle always needs its window to enter the atmosphere. If the pilots miss the window, they have to orbit until another window opens up, and if they try to enter without the window the ship may burn up around them. I can never begin work late. Otherwise I will have to orbit again. My window is in the early evening. Just like as my new puppy is learning, if I sit I stay, so I have to jump into whatever I have put off or it

won't happen until tomorrow, raising my stress and agony level higher and higher until the next evening when it peaks. "Do the thing you don't want to do first" I have heard a million times, and I admit, like you, I am trying this every day. It's not easy, but I find that when I have tackled that miserable chore I no longer am annoyed by my own stress and agony. There is nothing more to stress and agonize about until tomorrow. And then tomorrow, "Do the thing you don't want to do first," and you may avoid missing the window and burning up in the responsibility atmosphere. ':.. ;:: :', :".

Pope says Church must take Gospel into public sphere VATICAN CITY (CNS) - The Church must take the Gospel message into the public sphere in order to "attain the common good" and bring about "a civilization oflove," Pope Benedict XVI said in a letter to Spanish bishops. "The true nature and mission" of the Church involves "promoting the common good for all people," and, as such, "spreading the faith and religious practice cannot be confined to the purely private sphere," he said in a written message released by the Vatican. Christ came not "to judge the world," but that the world would be saved by him, the pope said in the letter, read to thousands of pilgrims at the start of a pilgrimage to the sanctuary of Our Lady of Pilar in

Zaragoza. Fifty-one Spanish bishops and the apostolic nuncio to Spain, Archbishop Manuel Monteiro de Castro, were to take part in the pilgrimage as part of the Year of the Eucharist and Spain's.Year ofImmaculate Mary. . . The May pilgrimage was part of the yearlong celebration marking the }5Oth anniversary of the dogma of the Imma~ulate Conception and the 50th anniversary ofthe consecration

ofSpain to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The pope said in his written message that Mary and Joseph still represent the ideal model for all families. "In the house ofNazareth, Jesus reached maturity within a family ... that continues to be a model for all families," he said. Born into a family that displays "an understanding climate and reciprocal support," a child develops the ability "to undertake without uncertainty the way of the good, without becoming disoriented by trends or ideologies that alienate the human person," the pope said. Spain's lower house of Parliament approved a gay marriage bill April 21. The bill, which also clears the path for gay couples to adopt children, was to go to the Senate. The first gay marriages could be held in Spain as early as this July. In his letter to Spanish bishops, Pope Benedict asked for Mary's intercession in protecting human life from conception "to its natural end" and protecting those who are victims of social injustices. He also asked that religipus freedom be respected, as well "the freedom of conscience ofeveryone."
