Deepen Faith, Personal ity For Seminary Spirituality ST. MEINRAD (NC)-How do you.go about the spiritual formation of today's seminarianstomorrow's priests-at a time when notions about both "spirituality" and "formation" are changing drastically? The search for answers to that question brought 150 men from seminaries throughout the country together for the first national conference for seminary spiritual directors.

Sixty dioceses, 30 religious communities and 11 0 seminaries were represented to dialogue with several bishops, a number of seminarians and a sprinkling of lay and Religious observers. ,The week-long' meeting pro-, duced no one answer but there were plenty of ideas. , One' theme running throughout the conference was the relationship of contemporary behavioral sciences to spiritual for-

mation. "You'll never deepen a man's faith without deepening his spirituality," it emphasized.' Rev. Eugene Kennedy, 'M.M., psychologist at Loyola University in Chicago, hammered away at the idea of integral development of personality-particularly through relationships with others -as the ideal ~otmation.

Modern Bible Translations Available to Americans I'

BY RICHARD J. CLIFFORD, S.J: Father Richard Clifford is a member of the Society of Jesus, and a professor of Old Testament at the Weston Col~ 'ege School of Theology, Cambridge. The publication last September of The New American Bible, the work of American Catholic Scholars under the sponsorship of the Bishops' Committtee of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, brought 'to five the number of modern EngHsh translations of the entire Bible. Each of the Bibles comes in a variety of bindings and formats and some have notes and introductory articles included. The New American Bible is published by 12 different publishers. Before such profusion, the prospective Bible reader finds himself confused. How do the

Bibles differ from one another? What are the, special features of each translation? Which Bible maya Catholic read? ,What Bible is best for me? A Catholic may read any accurate translation of the Bible. He can choose therefore from any of the new translations. The Church recommends that the Catholic read his Bible with notes that are designed to fur-

On the role of women' in the Church, Cardinal Krol said that there is no groiJp of. women, , which exercises as much power· and responsibility as Sisters in ' -the Catholic Church. "If I.think the wily 1 do," Car; dinal 'Cooke said, "I ca~ than'k ~, the Sisters for it."

CAPE COD YOUTHS GREET BISHOP: Following the administration of Confirmation in St. Pius X Church, So. Yarmouth, Bishop Cronin was surrounded by the class members as he went outside, to meet the parishi,oners of the Cape Cod Parish.

Continued from Page Two seven months. Asked to elaborate on his resignation, Bishop Kelly, who has, been a priest for 27 years, said, "I think my views regarding the Church today are pretty well known." He said; however, that he plans to remain a Catholic. "I still believe in the Catholic Church," he said. "I think it· is the greatest moral force in the world." Church officials in Providence were surprised by Bishop Kel1y's announcement. Father David P. Reilly, chancel1or, said: "Sadly we learned this morning that the Most Rev. Bernard M. Kelly, auxiliary bishop of Providence, has resigned from active ministry of the priesthood. . "The diocese of Providence deeply regrets 'his decision. Certainly Bishop Kelly must have agonized and puzzled over this matter for a long,time. We realize that ultimately he must follow the dictates of his conscience and we earrestly pray that he finds peace and happiness in his decision."

. VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI has reaffirmed the ancient law that persons who hare lost the state of grace must recover it through the sacrament of Penance before receiving Communion. "There are some today who attempt to exempt the faithful from this indispensable condition," he observed at a general audience June 9. the eve of Corpus Christi. ' ·"But are those who dispense themselves of it 'faithful'?" he asked. , Pope Paul quoted St. Paul's warning in his letter to the Corinthians: "Whoever eats this Bread or drinks the Cup of the Lord unworthily will be guilty of the Body and Blood of the'Lord," The Pope 'commented: "It i~ necessary to have a pure soul; it is necessary to have recovered grace through Penance-the sacrament of rehabilitation-before approaching Christ's embrace." He also reaffirmed the validity of devotion to the Blessed Sacrament outside Mass. "Eucharistic piety has an extension greater than the brief moment of celebration of the Lord's Sacrificial SuPper." the Pope asserted. Corpus Christl, "The Lord .remains in the sacramental species.' and this permanence not only justifies but demands its own cult; especial1y adoration. Holy Communion outside Mass if it was not possible' . during Mass. and the solemn procession that will be the 'rite proper to tomorrow's feast. Referring to the institution in the 13th century of the Feast of Corpus Christi.'which focuses on the S'acrament of, the Eucharist without the sad overtones of Holy Thursday, the Pope said: "We must not be surprised at the belated institution of the feast and of the widespread worof the Eucharistic sacrament ... It testifies to the Church's progressive awareness of the treasures of truth and grace which it carries within itself, and the growing charity with which it responds to the great and myste' rious divine gift. The Church always had faith in the presence of Christ in the sacramental species even beyond and outside the celebration of Hie Eucharistic sacrifice."

'Yazoo' Revealing Report On School' Integrcition

Demand Release Of Soviet Jews CHICAGO (NC)-The National Coalition of American Nuns has issued a statement of sympathy and outrage regarding the Leningrad trials of Russian Jews.

Yazoo City, Mississippi, was among many communities in that state which until last year held out against the integration of public schools. A federal court set a deadline for the achieving of integration. Willie Morris was interested in seeing whether this will occur, and how and with precisely in the Deep South that what consequences. He was the most serious and effective for the achieving of a reaithen editor of Harper's mag- work ly jU,st interracial society is being azine, and lived for years in Texas, England, and New York City. But Yazoo City was his hometown, and he had deep family roots there and elsewhere in the South.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is a Soviet writer who received last Fall a Nobel prize. He has somehow' managed to get out of. Russia and cause to be published in Paris what ,he _ , calls '.'the most important work of my life." The b<rok, "August .1914," was .. refused .acceptance by ,Soviet ·censorsand- the author himself gives the reason:, "This book cannot be published in our country . .. because :of censorship for reasons inconceivable to the normal human mind and,were it for no:other'reason,'because it would be necessary to write the word God in lower case, but I cannot lower myself to that." Solzhenitsyn is, a' ,decorated officer of World War II, spent eight years in a prison' camp for criticizing Stalin, .developed and recovered from cancer while there, and his works have been hailed ~s worthy of place alongside those 'of the great Russian literary ma~ters.. And like so many of these', masterpieces, there is· in this latest of his books a religious undertone that seems to be part of the Russian Christian temperament. When there are men, great men, who would risk pressure and prison and even worse in order to exercise their right simply to write about God and to call Him by 'name, then the spirit of "Holy Russia" is far from deai:l.

INDIANAPOLis (NC) - If military chaplains become civilians and lose their rank, it will be impossible for them to serve the religious needs of servicemen, according to former chap, lains surveyed by the Indianapolis archdiocesan newspaper, the Criterion. A change to civilian chaplaincy was suggested in a letter to Cardinal Terence Cook of New York, armed forces military vicar, by the liberal National Association of Laymen. The grQup contends that military rank and pay makes chaplains subservient . to the military and servants of "Caesar and not of ~ Chris~," Most of the ch~plains surv~yed by the Criterion thought that uniform and rank made it easier to get the cooperation of other officers in providing religious services to the troops. A former infantry chaplain during World War II said he found his uniform a liability only when dealing with the enemy wounded or prisoners. "They felt the uniform meant Army, a,nd not priest," he added. Otherwise, "being part of the system'~ was necessary to get the job done, he said. '

Another chaplain thought a priest could be handicapped in performing his ministerial functions because he would be conscious of belonging to the military system. A priest, he .said, might be freer to. serye ' the .troops if he w'ere n'ot bound by military regulations and subject to its orders.In a letter to' Cardinal Cooke the NAL charged that the moral voice of the priesthood has been silenced through its involv'ement in the military, structure. A former army chaplain responded that "the implication that a_ uniform ,_ muzzles a chaplain is wrong." There are some people; who, think it is wrong to use tax dollars to pay the salaries of chaplains or build military chapels, he said. As long as the draft exists, the priest said, the military must .offer the same I,;eligious services that are available in civilian life. All the ex-chaplains agreed that if chaplains' were demilitarized and the churches incurred the costs now paid for by the government, the shortage of chaplains would increase.

Schools Du'e Last of State Funds; Supreme Court Appeal Considered I

DETROIT (NC)-While financially-pressed Michigan Catholic schools' prepared to receive a final allocation from an aborted state law, no.npublic school supporters said they may. appeal a state high court decision banning such assistance. Nonpublic school teachers will receive $3.4 million under provisions of the law, called parochiaid,' which voters rejected in , last November's general election. Michigan voters approved a constitutional' amendment, re-ferred to as Proposal C, outlaw'-, ing nonpublic s~hool' aid. The Michigan Supreme Court, which later reviewed an election challenge, upheld the vote but ruled that nonpublic schools were entitled to some aid 'appropriated by the state legislature last September. The' court said that the aid earmarked for teacher salaries was operative until last Dec. 18, the effective date of the amendment adopted in the general election. Two Dissent, Nonpublic school supporters . said, however, they are considering appealing the Michigan

James W. Smith, founder and president, said the organization also has established a headquarters in New York. Smith, the son of, a minister, said he founded the service to relieve clergymen of the embarrassment of requesting discounts in transactions. Membership is confined to bona-fide clergymen at a fee of $25 a year, with a charter introductory rate of $15 to prospective members who apply before July 31.

high court decision to the U. S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is already weighing three appeals related to state aid to nonpblic schools. Nonpublic school supporters maintain that the amendment should be voided because it was worded too vaguely on the ballot. They claim that according to its language, it fanned all forms of nonpublic school aid. The Michigan high court ruled, however, that the intent of Pro-' posal C was to ban parochiaid, not other forms of state aid, such as shared time and auxiliary services. Chief Justice Thomas'M. Kavanaugh and Justice Thomas Giles who dissented from the 5-2 majority decision commented, "The people have the right to change their constitution but must do, , it in a proper, legal way.. The rationale of the ~ajority fails to satisfy either logicdr ·law and we reject it. We vote to void the election." , Budgets Exhausted Cardinal John F. Dearden of Detroit called the decision "a step backward in harming the traditional pattern of education that has benefitted Mjchigan SInce its earliest days." Michigan's legislature adopted the parochiaid measure last July. It took effect last September and provided funds' for salaries for nonpublic teachers who taught secular subjects. Michigan nonpublic schools are not expected to receive the final parochiaid payment until' after this school year's term ends.' School officials said it would take as long .to process the payments. Meanwhile, Catholic schools that were depending on such aid to ease their financial, ills have reportedly exhausted their budglOts and are having difficulty meeting their payrolls. Some schools here are borrowing from the Detroit archdiocesee which in turn, having exhausted its ir.ter-parish loan fund, is now borrowing from local banks.

QUITO (NC)-"It is amazingly comforting to see how priests' complaints that were considered scandalous a few years ago now have a place on the agenda of the forthcoming bishops' synod in Rome," said the chairman of the second national convention of Ecuadoria~ priests' councils. The chairman, Father Augustin Bravo, said priests' councils in Ecuador are profiting from the efforts begun a year ago at their first national convention, which dealt with priests' relations with their bishops and with the Vatican. Attending the meeting were 103 priests; Bishop Leonidas Proano of Riobamba and Cardinal Pablo Munz Vega at' Quito. Cardinal Munoz Vega said the meeting "could mean strength,ening the mission of the Church today." Discussions, dealt with "The Priest and Liberation," a theme including pastoral renewal and efforts to achi.eve social jUstice.

grant of $55,000 to UFWOC's Delano office and $31,000 to UFWOC at McAllen, Tex., to develop educational radio programs for American poor in the southern part of Texas. Marcroft said he was in complete sympathy with the bishops' aims of breaking "the hellish circle of poverty" through the development fund. "Catholics throughout the Salinas Valley," Marcroft said, "were distressed and shocked to learn that $86,000 of the money collected, intended for the poor, yvas in fact given as a first installment to strengthen the organizational efforts of UFWOC. "This move to aid and encourage this organizing committee with a clear history of violence and a lack of responsibility in the Salinas Valley is in direct violation of the conditions under which these funds were solicited as outlined in The Observer (diocesan newspaper) as of Oct. 14, 1970. $85 Contribution The bishop suggested that the protesters direct their complaints to the bishop who is chairman of the Campaign for Human Development. National chairman of the campaign is Cardinal John Dearden of Detroit, national director is, Auxiliary Bishop Michae R. Dempsey of Chicago, and chairman of the bishops committee is Bishop Francis J. Mugavero of Brooklyn. "Computing the amount sent in by this diocese to the Human Development Fund," said the Monterey bishop, "and considering the protested allocation from the entire national amount proportionately, we are talking about $85 from the entire diocese of Monterey and $12 from the Salinas area. Hence, I think you will join me as I suggested in making known to the committee our own personal feelings' and offer advice for the future allotment of these charitable' funds."

sr. PAUL '(NC)-The archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis boosted nuns' minimum base salary to $1,900 a year by an outright raise of $100 and an additional $100, for education costs. However, the Sisters request for $300 per year retirement ben- _ efits was denied until a detailed report- of retirement expenses could be drawn up.

Statistics are very, pliable. They can be manipulated in all directions and prove anything. For example, I've spent"one quarter of the working hours of my married life in idleness. I've been married 17 years. I average about 20 loads of laundry a week. Some of the hours could even It takes about 15 minutes to fold one load. That means, be chalked up to "interior decoration."

where the couch was, crowd the end tables someplace in between, there's room for the playpen in a spot where the baby can't reach the lamps. Then I got a long cord for the kitchen phone, and could wash dishes while I was talking to a friend. But I never mastered holding the phone in the crook of my neck ,and wasn't too neat folding laundry that way. So I started talking to another friend. It didn't take any' big ,words, or elaborate phrases. I'd just think about the Blessed Mother as if she were standi~g right there, and I, was talking 'to her. I thought about her as another mother who went through many of the same problems I had. She would understand so many little things about being a wife and mother. About Little Things The whole idea grew. If I could talk about my problems, why couldn't I talk about the good little things-and even the in between? "See if you can keep that baby from waking up from her nap, till I get these dishe!\ finished? "No one was sick today-and everyone got out to school on time." "The boys had such a good time fishing with their grandfather." "Did you see the tulips? They're just beautiful this year." Maybe our religion hasn't changed so much. We used to recite, "Prayer is the ' lifting of the mind and heart to God." I'm just learning how to do it'-and that it is so much easier to do' it through Mary.

Expresses To Turkey,

Sympathy Sicily

VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI sent messages of condolence to leaders' in two' areas rocked by natural disastersTurkey, devastated by an earthquake for the second time in 10 days, and Sicily, where an erupting Mt. Etna threatened villages below it. After a new river of lava gushed down the slopes of the nearly 11,000-foot famed volcano experts on the scene said nine Sicilian villages were imperiled. Pope Paul, in a telegram sent by his secretary of state, Cardinal Jean Villot, told Bishop Pasquale Bacile of Acireale that he shared the "suffering, hardships and anxiety" of the villagers threatened by the ruinous molten lava flow. Cardinal Villot also wired the president of Turkey, Cevdet Sunay, informing him of, the Pope's "personal grief and solidarity" with the Turkish people "in this tragic moment of disaster,"

Pastora I Council

,

CINCINNATI (NC)-Formation of a national pastoral' council •ought to wait until there are more diocesan pastoral councils in the country. This is the consensus of a special committee of the Cincinnati archdiocesan pastoral council formed to study the feasibility of the establishment of a national representative counterpart for the Church in the United States. Dr. Russell Hannen,. pastoral council chairman, told a council session that the c~mmittee's report, not yet filed, will suggest that while a representative body for the American Church would be a good idea, "now is not the time for it. Only about 25 of the country's 165 dioceses have' pastoral councils now functioning, Dr. Hannen pointed out, 'adding that only two pastoral councils exist in the six 'Ohio dioceses. "We propose the continuing development of pastoral councils on the 'diocesan and regional level in the coming fi~e to 10' years,"- said Dr. Hannen.

Deplore Discrimination Nun Superiors. Back Suit Aimed at Dual Schools In Lafayette Diocese COVINGTON (NC)-The Louisiana Conference of Major Superiors, restating its support for school integration, has endorsed a suit seeking to prohibit the Lafayette diocese from operating dual school systems for blacks and whites. The case before' a federal court in Opelousas; La., "is an example of litigation by black Catholics who had exhausted all other possible ways known to them for securing social justice in the Catholic school system in the diocese of Lafayette," the conference said in a statement issued here. Twenty-six communities of Religious women, all members of the conference, signed the statement. The statement was sent to the state's bishops, school superin·';ncesan school board presidents. In January, '1970, the heads o,f the Sisters', orders went on record deploring racial discrimination in Catholic institutions, including their own religious communities. "Since that time," their recent statement said, "not much has ',een accomplished to bring about ~ocial justice within the Cathotic school systems of Louisiana." Black parents and school chil'ren are contesting two schools '1 Opelousas. They have alleged '1at the' Lafayette diocese dis'·'-;;"?,t.es 011 the baSIS of race and has refused to adopt' and .,lplement a plan for school de, segregation. Assisted by attorneys from the Washington, D.C.-based Com"Tlittee for Integrated Schools, their petition asks the court to order the diocese to dissolve the dual school system, and continue a, black faculty and adminis~ra-

tion of proper, proportion in racially balanced schools. "To those instances where Catholic diocesan and or local school boards will not voluntarily assure that their schools be nondiscriminatory, the only recourse open to a minority group seems to be legal means," the conference's statement said. "In these instances we feel that groups'"seeking court supervision, as an assistance to achieving the Christian principle of brotherhood should be encouraged and supported." Msgr. Richard Mouton, Lafayette diocesan schools superintendent, has flatly denied the race bias contentions. He said that since 1970 the diocese has taken steps to merge black and white schools· to attain a racial balance. Putting the plans into action takes time, he said. "We are definitely not segregationists," he added.

Council Emphasizes Responsibility To Avoid Teaching Anti.. Semitism LONDON (NC)-The Council of Christians and Jews emphasized the grave responsibility parents and teachers have to avoid teaching anti-Semitism when they explain the Passion of Christ. , A recent statement issued by the council said: "Both the World Council of Churches ~nd the Second Vatican Council have said that the historical events which led to, the Crucifixion should not be so presented as to _ ,fasten upon the Jewish people of today responsibilities which belong to our corporate human,ity and not to one race or com- munity." The statement went on to say that "Christians cannot understand Christianity without understanding Judaism and Jews. Perhaps Easter is the right time

within the Church's calendar to start on the quest for such an understanding." Criticize Play The statement quoted Jules Isaac, a French Jew and student of Christian-Jewish relations, as saying that in Christian countries the roots of anti-Semitism are probably deeper than anywhere else and that "despite praiseworthy efforts to deal with them, they remain alive today." The council's statement also criticized anti-Semitism in the Oberammergau, Germany, Passion Play" which, it said, was seen in 1970 by some 530,000 visitors from 113 countries. The play, enacted every decade since 1634 by Oberammergau villagers, has often been criticized for being anti-Semitic. This criticism" by both Christians and Jews, increased sharply prior to last year's performance when it became known that the old version of the play, with only a few changes, would be used again.

NEW YORK (NC)-President James M. Hester of New York University, givi'ng the main address at Fordham University's annual commencement, called for acceptance of "the seemingly contradictory proposition that the only way to keep private (higher education) 'institutions private is to give them public support."

Indian Cardinal Raps Abortion

Joseph and Marilyn Roderick

We picked our first basket of strawberries June 9. Actually the strawberries were planted by my cousin and partially tended by my father, so I can take very little credit for their presence. But the experience of picking a basketful is stilI one which does the job better than the gives special joy. garden. Last week I took Jason This recipe for pierogi dough' into the strawberry bed and was given to me the evening I explained how he should pick berries, being sure not to step on the plants and destroy the incoming fruit and he was thrilled. Each berry he picked was more succulent than the last and each seemed to him to get redder and redder. He was so thrilled when Marilyn came out into the yard that he ran as fast as he could to get her a berry. Fun With Gardens Nothing is m.ore satisfying to the gardener than to have his garden enjoyed, either because of the beauty of his flowers or the vegetables and fruit which take on a special flavor because they are home grown. This year Melissa planted a smalI garden which is doing quite welI. She has several rows of peas which should be ready by the traditional ripening date of July 4, two smalI rows of corn, two rows 9f radishes, two rows of carrots, five or six tomato plants. six hills. of pole beans, two rows of stringbeans, 12 pepper plants, a few squash seeds, and a 'row of endive. This was done in a few sessions, with me providing the labor of turning over the soil' and raking the earth smooth. Now I am enough of a realist to know that I will end up doing the hoeing and watering, but she deserves some credit for the work she has done thus far. However, she will gain a great deal more from having done her planting than if she had been shooed out of the ,garden. , My point in alI of this is that we would have a great deal more fun with our gardens if we planted things that the children could enjoy and they would appreciate out gardens alI the more for deriving some value from them. I have often said that the way to a child's heart is' through appealing to the eye and to the stomach and nothing

Romans Hear' Plea For Jailed Prelate ROME, (NC) - At a vigil of prayer for persecuted Christians, a leading Italian layman urged Catholics to pray -for Archbishop Raymond Tchidimbo of Conakry, Guinea, imprisoned for life at hard labor by the government of President Sekou Toure. Prof.. Luigi Gedda,.a consultor of the Vatican Council of the Laity and president of Catholics United for the Faith, referred to Archbishop Tchidimbo's .firm 'stand against a campaign 'against the family. ' It is believed in some circles that this is what alienated Pres,ident Toure and broughL about , Archbishop Tchidimbo's arrest.

Stresses Women's Christian Goal RICHMOND (NC) - Margaret Mealey, executive director of the National Council' of Catholic Women, said here she feels that liberated women should, not ..separate themselves from family, Church, community, career and country, but should deepen those concerns along the lines of Christian commitment. "As we become less rigid, less blindly conforming, less traditionally subservient, we will 'become more free to render the real service that determines how truly Christ-like we are," she said. ' Speaking at a diocesan Council of Catholic Women Convention here, Miss Mealey said "the liberation of Christian women, which will be included in the general changing lifestyle of American women, must b e guided by their Christian commitment." , Religion will "provide the necessary guidelines to keep ,liberation from becoming a' pprely agnostic or humanistic pursuit," Miss Mealey stated. She said she hoped that Christian women would not accept an extremist position at either end of the feminist debate, but would maintain more sensible middle ground.......;..a tenuous chore which continually includes avoiding polar positions."

Chaplain Leaves San Quentin BELVEDERE-TIBOURON (NC) -Ten years at San Quentin is a long time even if it is spent outside prison bars. Recently Father Thomas Ahern ended a decade of chaplaincy at the California prison and returned to parish life as associate pastor of Sacred Heart in Saratoga.

After my column last Spring on a Parish Voucher System in which I suggested individual Catholics be given the option of allocating their funds to the parochial school or the CCD school, I heard from readers the country over. . Apparently the col u m n Recently, there have been touched a few nerves bewell-publicized national meetings cause it was read from some of priests, bishops and nuns. pulpits, denounced from Each has wrestled with problems others and deposited in collection baskets along with weekly envelopes.

By DOLORES CURRAN

One of the saddest responses came from a reader who wrote: "Several of us who are unhappy with the CCD program appeared at our parish council meeting and formally" requested a parish vote on the budget. Our pastor became so upset at this that he tabled the idea and never allowed it to come up in subsequent meetings. Now, what do we do?" I couldn't possibly answer this man because I didn't have all the facts. Nor could I answer the group of ladies who, after developing a parent-education program for their parish, were told by their pastor, "I can't allow it because I can't be there all the evenings' to make sure' you' are teaching the correct doctrine." If these, and many of the other incidents reported to me, really' occurred, they are an indication of the real depth of our parish problem: our spiritual leaders aren't equipped to handle the growing liberation of Catholics. It's that simple. In instance after instance, parish councils which "find" to the displeasure of the pastor are dissolved without explanation. Complaining parents are written off as weak Catholics or trouble makers or both. Parishioners who go through the same democratic procedure they do to get action on a community problem are labeled militant or radical. Democracy in Church It's another of those cases where we laugh instead of cry only because it releases the same tension. Although Vatican II decided firmly in favor of a mature and involved laity, it seems that only the laity heard those hallowed words. Echoes may have reached the hierarchy but in too many cases, they were translated as, "A mature laity unless it interferes with my decisions." Orthodox Catholics are quick to point their fingers at democracy in the Church, charging that it is heretical. But we aren't voting on doctrine when we vote on whether or not to continue running a parochial school at the expense of religious. education for three-fourths of the parish kids. Mature Laity. We aren't voting on theology when we vote on the times of Masses; . the size of the parking lot, the subsidization of the diocesan paper and the alleviation of hunger in our area.

of collegiality and democratic voice within its own ranks. Unfortunately, none of these' groups has shown interest in the rights anq role of the laity. When I questioned one wellknown and. highly respected monsignor on this absence,. he replied, "But that's your problem. We have our own to work out." So, Mature Laity, a 'Voice in the running of our parishes, is our problem. It's up to us to discover how we can be heard if the pastor and/or his chosen representatives turn us off. It's 'up to us to get together ill rna.' ture and peaceful assembly to determine our alternatives to parish autocracy. Pastors tend to react to charges of heavy-handedness by saying, "My laity won't get· involVed so I have to make the decisions. I can't even get anyone to run for parish counciL" In such cases, I suggest the pastor look to his council. Is it really free to make decisions or is it a rubber stamp council? In 'parishes where the council really is a decision making body, there's no lack of candidates. Disinterest in. running is found most often in. parishes. where the . pastor has already decided on all major issues and either dares his members to vote another way or allows them to vote on such trivia they stop coming to meetings. Whether we bless or condemn it, Catholic Lib is on its way. People who are free to make decisions in all other bodies governing their lives aren't going to be "told" on non-doctrinal matters much longer. . If we are the Church-if we really are the Church - as we keep hearing we are, then where is our voice on parish matters? Locked up somewhere along with our responsibili~y and decision'making. power?

Abortion Referral Agency Illegal NEW YORK (NC) - A commercial abortion referral agency was declared .illegal in a New York Supreme Court decision that could have widespread effects on the multimillion-dollar referral business here. Court Justice Sidney H. Asch barred the Abortion Information Agency, Inc., from continuing its business of referring pregnant women for a fee to physicians and hospitals for abortions. "The law which sought te) emancipate women from servitude as unwilling breeders did not intend to deliver them as helpless victims of commercial operators for the exploitation of their misery," the justice declared. He referred to the New York statute which permits medically approved abortions up to 24 weeks. from conception without residency requirements.

Governor Mandel Says U. S. Needs ~rivate Schools CINCINNATI' (NC)-Maryland Gov. Ma!,vin Mandel said here that the nation needs a private as well as a public school system and spoke' with pride .of his state's tuition 'voucher plan to aid nonpublic school students. Gov. Mandel, in Cincinnati to receive an honorary doctor of laws degree at Xavier University, told newsmen that he sees two valid reasons for aiding private' schools and colleges. "First of all, they serve a very essential purpose" in the nation's educational system, he said. "A student ought to have the right of selecting the school he wishes to attend. If you' had only ·one public system, the educational system would tend to become stereotyped." Moreover, the governor said, "the cost to the state of absorbing into the public school system students attending nonpublic schools would be fantastic-not only jn operating costs, but in capital expenditures."

"A person might do very well on the inside -as your clerk and then fall apart on the outside. "But every once in a while through the help of some person, something clicks inside one of those guys. They 'snap to,' as they put it. They decide 'they've got to get with it." Chaplains have served at San Quentin since 1858, just a few years after the prison opened.

WHY IS SUMMER SPECIAL! ~

.

Think about it ... is there a special "summer spirit?" Summer doesn't include any special· religious holis!ays that create a whole seasonal spirit of celebration as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. . But then, summer IS special because EVERY DAY is special. Every day celebrates our life in Christ; every day for a Christian is a new birth in Christ {Christmas); every day is an experience of God's love in others (Easter); every day is a "Eucharist" (Thanksgiving). ..We only need to pause and reflect on the most natural happenings of our everyday lives to discover that summer does offer us countless ways to grow in Christian love, especially in the many opportunities to enjoy our families and friends: be it a long-awaited vacation or a simple neighborhood cookout! Because summer is such a getherness, we would ask you your brothers amd sisters in the than at any other time of the during the summer months.

beautiful season for fa~ily toto remember in a special way missions. Special, because more year, the missions suffer most

The financial help missionaries so desperately depend on to continue serving the poor, and to help even more in these critical times, reaches its yearly low. Schools, hospital-clinics, pastoralrelief-and development programs are affected: slowed down, crippled, or forced to cease completely. . But even more than the missionaries. themselves, it is the mission-poor who suffer the most, especially when the only hope many have ever seen for their lives begins to fade away for reasons they don't ~nderstand, especially those who have just begun to grasp what it means to share in the life of Christ ••• to share in the Community of God's People . . . to know that life does have a meaning because others do care; especi,aUy those who have nothing of material worth but who have learned that every day is special whem live,d in the faith and love of God.

It is a statement for all seasons. Be fair _to yourself, however, ,realize that obviously it is an ideal, not a statement about the fact of every' Christian's life. The fact is, of course, that Christians often .fail to act or speak "in the n;ime of the Lord Jesus." They sin.

In Search of Silence .

.

There is "a time to be silent, t and a time to' speak" says' the Old Testament sage, Qoheleth (3:7). Summer is an ideal opportunity to do both. With the increased leisure of the Summer months there is often more time to be with friends, with the family, to talk. Summer rings with the sounds of happy conver· sation on picnics, at the beach, t • on trips, or just around the back yard. Summer is great time to talk. ..-

Christianity Continued from Page Sixteen preacher must plead, as St. Paul kindness, humility, gentleness, does here, "Put on compassion, and patience. Be helpful to one another, and forgive one another, whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive each other in the , same way that the Lord has forgiv;en you" (3:12-14). We know from other parts of Paul's letters and from the Gospels that 'we do not 'and simply cannot do all this by ourselves. When we do these good things it is the result of a gift from God with which we cooperate. Paul says that God has called us together in the one body of the Church to the peace that Christ gives. That peace, he says, is to be "the judge" in our hearts (3: 15). It is not automatic however. Paul has to add, "Teach and instruct each other with all wisdom" (3:16). , Apparently it helps to sing. Twice Paul urges it (3:16). Apparently it helps to be fair first of all to the members of one's own family. In four different ways he says so (3:18-21). ,Be Alert at Prayer Apparently there was a considerable source of evil in relations between slaves and masters. Paul devotes five sentences (in the original Greek) to them (3:22-4:1). I am not just playing with numbers. It just happens that's the way Paul wrote. He doesn't keep it up. He moves on to something that applies to all, "Be persistent in prayer, and keep alert as' you pray, with thanks to God" (4:2). Apparently even in the moments of love given to us by God, when we have the grace to pray, we can droop and fail. We all know it is so. Even in this pure thing of loving prayer God has not so bound us to him that we cannot do otherwise. o

As i f it were not difficult enough to live the Christian life to our own and our family's .satisfaction, Paul reminds us of that paradoxical role to which each of us, even though weak, is called: "Be wise in the way you act toward those who are not believers, 'making good use of every opportunity' you have. Your speech should always be pleasant and interesting, and you should 'know how to give the right answer to every person" (4:5-6).

that does see it is all the more clearly a gift from God. Discussion Questions' 1. Why is it essential that the Christian life begin in a family setting? 2. What attitude does Paul have toward singing?

'New Dill'ector

Sil'ence Continued from Page Sixteen His care, His call, in the varied voices of our time. In the confusing voices of our age, the voice of God can be, heard-but only if we learn 'to find within ourselves an inner silence. "Be still, and know that I am God" (Ps 46:10)., God Speaks Through Creatures To be silent enough to hear God speaking to you is not easy. For some it is not possible without professional assistance. No formula can be prescribed' in a brief newspaper column, but one or two suggestions may help during the Summer leisure hours. First, try occasionally to notice some particular sound and be ptesent to it, attentively listening to it. Perhaps you may notice the chirping of a bird, the steady patter of rain falling, the happy voice of your child at play, the sound of a car passing by, the notes of a musical instrument. Just listen, forgetting the care, worries, absorbing, appreciating the particular sound. Second, on Q.ccasion, stop mentarily what you are doing, take' notice of whatever sound is most apparent and in your own words speak to God about what you hear. You might thank him for the sound of music, the tone of voice of your husband or wife; praise Him for your ability to hear, for the wonderful variety of sounds that warn us of danger, make possible conversation, ~ntertain us, soothe our troubled spirits. You might ask Him to help you learn to listen, to learn to hear' His voice speaking through the sounds of life. You might ask forgiveness for not taking time to enioy and appreciate the sounds that arc part of His creation. , Learning to hear God speaking through the creatures that sur- \ round us or through our own inner desires requires an inner silence that must be searched for and created. "Be still, and know that I am God."

De'epen: Faith, Personality Continued from Page One director of the Institute of Spirituality at the Gregorian University in 'Rome, agreed with the self-fulfillment idea but insisted that spiritual growth goes "deeper~' than that. "Self-fulfillment comes through self-denial in the New' Testament," he said, adding that to 'regard Christian self-fulfillment in "purely human terms" is not consistent with the Gospel message. The two points of view are not necessarily irreconcilable. Msgr. William F. Doyle, Director of the advanced course at the Naval Chaplains' School in Newport, pointed out that psychological insights can help "ready'; an individual for spiritual growth.

sphere." The priests tend to stress formal patterns and regular times of prayer; the seminarians prefer spontaneity and tend to resist regularly scheduled religious exercises. It was thought that at least on the graduate level, seminaries should not make religious exercises mandatory for their students-but should at the same time insist on a high degree of "accountability" on the seminarians' part with regard to the values which the practices express. The matter is not an "eitheror" proposition, Father Malatesta explained, since both freedom and obligation have a role to play in Christian life. Freedom, he said, does not contradict "knowing that there are certain things due to God" even though the best way to satisfy such obligations is through a free response. Father Broccolo also said the most helpful thing a spiritual director can do for the seminarians may be to expose his own spirituality to them, for example by praying with them. The students should be "allowed to share in the priest's relationship with Christ," he said. Directors are also "primarily change-agents" whose job it is to bring about growth and atti-' tudinal change in seminarians, said Msgr. Doyle. The director is the one who helps the stu,dent "articulate and evaluate" his religious experience, said Father Malatesta. Whatever the spiritual director does and is, there was agreement that he does not have an easy time. today being it and doing it. "These men catch it froin both directions ," one observer commented. "The students tell them 'You guys don't understand us.' Older priests tell them 'You aren't turning out the kind of priests we used to have.' You have to admire them for s.ticking with the job."

Nelson, principal of the 530-student ,school, spearheaded a fund drive which raised $47,200-enough to' keep the financially-sagging school open, and then some. The drive began when school opened last September, and Cotter's board of education estab. lished a committee to contact individual community leaders for donations of $1,000 each. About $35,000 was raised that way. Pastors and lay officials of the five Catholic - parishes here agreed to increase their subsidies' for the school. The Knights of' Columbus held a fund-raising dinner. 'Cotter students raised $4,000 through magazine sales, $500 at a white elephant sale, and donated materials and labor to paint the school gymnasium. Donations also came in' from .Cotter alumnae, solicited by mail. Father Nelson asked for and got free help from a local pub.1ic relations agency which promoted the drive. The Winona daily newspaper printed an_ editorial urging support of the school, and the Cotter principal was interviewed over local TV and radio stations.

Favors Improved U. S.. Relations With China DUBUQUE (NC) - A Catholic missionary who spent 10 years ' in China, four of them in communist prisons, said he approves recent U.S. attempts to improve relations with the Peking government., ' "We can't be forever ignoring China," Father Harold Rigney, a priest in the Society of Divine Word, said in an interview with The Witness, newspaper of the Dubuque archdiocese. Although he agrees there should be better relations with the People's Republic of China, he warne" that the United States ,must stay on guard. Recognition of Red China "would create much trouble for us," he said, while noting that "it will come.' It has to come." Father Rigney was rector of Fu Jen Catholic University in Peking in 1949 when Mao Tsetung's communist government took over. He was imprisoned' in 1951 and spent four years and two months in communist prisons on charges of spying. Communism 'Evil'

Dovorce Bill, The hit musical "Oliver" is coming to t,he stage of Fall River's Bishop Connolly High School auditorium Thursday through Saturday, June 24, 25 and 26. The live version of the widely acclaimed play based on a Dickens novel, will be a showcase for some of the outstanding talent of the Fall River diocesan school system. The ambit.ious production also represents one parish's efforts to keep its school in operation. The musical is being sponsored by the people of St. Mathieu's parish in Fall River. Fr. Thomas Morrissey ,assistant pastor at the North End church, explained how one small parish of 350 families decided to undertake such a project. "Like most parish schools, we are in the midst of a financial crisis. We have 288 children in our school. Only 88 are from our own parish. We're providing a· service for 14 other parishes. If we have to close our doors, the effects will be felt all over the city."

SANTO DOMINGO (NC) President Joaquin Balaguer has yielded to pressure from the Catholic Church and vetoed' a bill that would have legalized quickie, divorces for foreigners here. The bill, Which, President Balaguer returned to tlie Chamber of Deputies unsigned, was passed by' both houses of the legislature" in May. It was designed, its sponsors admitted, to create new sources , of revenue for the Dominican Republic by attracting foreigners-primarily U. S. citizens-to come and dissolve their marriages within a week. Catholic opposition to the bill was headed' by Archbishop Octavio Beras Santo Domingo; his coadjutor, Archbishop Hugo E. Polanco Brito; Bishop Roque Adames of .Santiago de Los Caballeros, and an ad hoc committee composed of more than 30 Catholic organizations.
