"Hence it is necessary to demand that only those eucharistic prayers be used which have been approved by the lawful authority of the Church, for they clearly and fully manifest the sentiments of the Church." Father Rotelle said that in this country the use of unauthorized eucharistic prayers "is widespread, especially on university campuses and in small-group liturgies." He added that the reason for this is understandable. "There is felt in many sectors of the country a need for more eucharistic prayers," he said. This need is especially' felt "in Religious communities, where there is daily celebration of the Mass," he said. While some of the privately prepared texts he has seen are "quite good," he said, generally "the quality is very, very poor." The liturgy expert said that the unauthorized texts "are frequently deficient in the elements of praise and thanksgiving to God; often enough they are just those elements which the liturgical reform has attempted to restore to the Roman liturgy."

WASHINGTON (NC) - U. S. support for population control programs abroad must not -be given in a manner contrary to peoples' moral, religious and cultural traditions, Bishop Edward E. Swanstrom, executive director of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), told the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Bishop Swanstrom submitted a lengthy statement to the committee on behalf of CRS, overseas 'aid agency of U. S. Catholics, during hearings on foreign aid authorization legielation. . Acknowledging that "we are at the crossroads as far as the future of our foreign aid legislation is concerned," Bishop Swanstrom stated that it has to be given a new thrust and a new direction. The prelate also said that the foreign aid program should ,increasingly be channeled through the private sector, such as cooperatives, universities, firms of various types, individual experts, and other private entities, includ'ing voluntary agencies. ' This is a general policy supported by most legislators, he said. Little Im=,rovement Attacking the excessive' bureaucratization of government efforts, and the failure to use the potential of the voluntary, agencies in spite of legal provisions to do so, Bishop Swanstrom declared, "Too often in recent years, sound voluntary agency programs intended to improve the welfare of tqose at the very bottom of the economic ladder have been sacrificed on the altar of Gross National Product (GNP) or have fallen prey to the vicissitudes of political expediency." He added that the growth of GNP in the majority of the <;leveloping countries has meant little or no improvement in the social ,arid economic conditions that the "trickle do~n" theory . of development simply has not worked. Stressing that the voluntary agencies are concerned mainly with the .problem of the "quality of life," the bishop said that small community projects for which there has been no government support, are much more meaningful. He called for government funding of these projects, which have -been using the small resources of the voluntaryagencies. Saying that "food and its production s!lould be our number one priority for all peoples," the bishop called for "earmarking part of our annual production for the world's poor." . He said that voluntary agencies must -be given the opportunity to develop and administer people-centered programs of foreign aid at a minimum cost to the American taxpayer.

,Cardinal Asks Soviets to End Repression WASHINGTON (NC)-Cardinal John Krol of Philadelphia, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB), warned the Soviet Union of the need "to eliminate repressive and discriminatory practices" against religious a'nd ethnic groups in the Soviet Union. In a carefully worded statement marking the visit of Soviet Communist party leader Leonid Breshnev to President Nixon, the NCCB president hailed the meeting as a continuation of "the pursuit of peace between the two nations" and expressed hope that it would lead to increased commercial and cultural exchanges and "significant reductions in military expenditures." Cardinal Krol noted that the June '18-26 visit coincides with the 10th anniversary qf Pope John XXIII's encyclical letter Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth). The visit is in harmony with Pope John's "call for recognition of pluralism and openness to dlialogue, even among those w'ith markedly different viewpoints," the cardinal said. But he added that certain human rights "are severely restrict-

ed in the Soviet Union and Eastern European countries," He singled out two human rights which Pope John had c~lled "universal, inviolate and inalien-' able:" The right to honor God ac: cording to the dictates of an upright conscience, and the right to profess (one's) religion privately and publicly." "When there are just reasons fqr it, the night to emigrate to other countries and take up residence there." Cardinal Krol's reference to the right of emigration evidently referred to the severe restrictions placed on the emigration of Soviet Jews to Israel. The repression of religion In the Soviet Union was highlighted last year when more than 17,000

Lithuanian Catholics sent petitions to United Nations general secretary, Kurt Walheim, accusing Sov,iet officials of pers'ecuting Catholics. In May 1972, just hefore President Nixon's visit to the Soviet Union, thousands of youths rioted in Kaunas, Lithuania's second largest city, after the funeral' of a Catholic youth who had burned himself to death "for poLitical reasons." Cardinal Krol said he was looking forward to the NixonBreshnev meeting, anticipating that the agenda will include not only commercial and military affairs between the two nations, but will also include considerations of the need to eliminate repressive and discriminatory practices by the Soviet Union and communist party leadership.

Catholics Ask Governor to Save Marriage Conciliation Services ALBANY (NC) - The New York State Catholic Committee (SCC) is urging Gov. Nelson Rockefelled to veto a bill that would destroy state marriage conciliation services. The SCC has also urged the governor to approve temporary funds to continue the conciliation services until the special legislative session convenes in July. Funds for the services ran out and were not renewed in the supplementary budget. "We were shocked to discover the legislature, in its final hectic weekend, destroyed the efforts of our New York courts to save marriages headed for divorce and

annulment," said SCC secretary, Charles J. Tobin, Jr. Under the provisions of the revised divorce law, a conciliation service was set up to help save broken marriages. It is this service which the ,bill ends. "We urged a veto ... because we believe it very important for the state to take every possible step to help married people, particularly young people, solve their differences and reconcile and restore normal family relation," Tobin continued. The same legislative session enacted a million-doHar program providing family court referees for ,foster care placements.

Instruction Carries Obligation Continued from Page One multiplied over the years," the archbishop said. "They were published (in many forms) and some, with frightening frivolity, improvised. "At first they were used as models for study, but before anyone realized it, they were introduced into liturgical use. "Meanwhile, the silence on the part of authority, perhaps suggested by prudence and pastoral sensibility, ended up by bein~ understood as benevolent agreement with thi~ intolerable abuse," The archbishop said this ban on improyisation is final and de~ cisive and leaves no one with an excuse for disobeying it. Referring to a politely worded request that bishops' conferences and individual bishops see to it that innovations cease, the archbishop said: "This courteous way of speaking ...to bishops ... should not be considered ,a mild rebuke, nor should there be any doubt about the obligatory force of this instruction." The archbishop continued: "All abusive eucharistic prayers

are to be eliminated from use at the altar. Priests who do not do this can no longer allege the excuse of being in good faith. "Nor are hishops able to have any uncertainty a'bout the mind of Rome." , Recalling that the Second Vatican Council ruled that the Vatican and, in certain instances, the local bishop would set the rules for Iitur,gy, Archbishop Bugnini said that in the matter of eucharistic prayers the Vatican is establishing for itself exclusive jurisdiction. Bishops' conferences may still request permission for eucharistic prayers not in the renewed Roman Missal, but conferences must be sure that such proposed uses are "necessary and opportune," and wi1l have "great import" to the entire nation. According to the archbishop, this should rule out special eucharistic prayers for youth groups, workers or clubs. The archbishop said the Vatican was prompted to this action because of "love of the unity of discipline in the Church during the common prayer and for the welfare of the entire Church."

WASHINGTON (NC)-A manual listing 61 experts in various areas of Catholic education and describing programs that they will present on request has been published by the elementary school department of the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). The 131-page paperback, entitled "Resourceful Persons-A Service Manual for Catholic Elementary Schools," .gives the names and addresses of the resource persons, their areas of expertise, the types of programs they present and the programs' goals, the range of the customary stipend, and outlines of program content. Areas of expertise included in the manual are administratio!1, boards of education, curriculum, early childhood education, evaluation, humanization, minority awareness, religious educat,ion, value education, faith community, and special education. Sister Leo Vincent Short, executive secretary of the elementary department· and editor of the manual, said: "While ~duca­ tional theory is certainly necessary, practitioners in the field want to know how to implement new ideas and programs. Administrators and teachers· are busy people and don't have the time to research resourceful persons who will assist them with the process of implementation. This service manual will fill such a need."

LOS ANGELES (NC)-ThJirtyeight priests have finished a year's study of Spanish in a course set up to help them communicate with the many Mexican • American Catholics here. The course, set up three years ago at the request of priests here, is taught by Miss Dolores Quevedo, a teacher of 25 years experience. The course prepares the priests to celebrate Mass, hear confessions, give counsel and conduct everyday conversations in SpanislJ. It also tunes them il1 at the grassroots level to many aspects of Mexican culture: spirituality, history, literature and family life. Spanish-speaking parishioners respond to them with particular warmth, recognizing that the priests have gone to some effort to learn to speak the language of their parishioners. The class is held once a week in a' meeting room next to the boxing gym at Resurrection parish in Los Angeles' eastside. Many priests attend class on their day off.

Gunm~n

Kidnaps Priest, Woman

NOVATO (NC) - A gunman kidnapped a priest and a woman parish employe and then attempted to rob a bank here in California before he was captured by police. The man entered Our Lady of Loretto rectory here June 12 and asked Leonard J. Calegari, the associate pastor, for $200. When the priest refused, the man drew a gun and ordered Father Cale· gari and Mrs. Louise White to ' leave the rectory with him. The man ordered Father Calegari to his automobile where six 7.th graders were waiting for the priest to drive them to a picnic. "I told the kids to get lost," Father Calegari said. "They must have wondered what was wrong with me, but they got out of the car." The gunman then ordered Father Calegari to drive to a Novato bank. Inside the rectory, Father Charles Farrell, the pastor, called police. ,Meanwhile Father Calegari, Mrs. White and the gunman had arrived at the <bank. The gunman ordered the priest to enter the bank and ask for $},OOO. The priest told bank employees what was happening; they called 'the police. Police arrived and arrested the man. They charged Eugene L. Gray, 23, of Oakland with kidnapping with intent to commit robbery. ' . ',' .~

Miss QuevedO is assisted by a group of teacher aides, who for the most part speak no English and thus of necessity provide i,nstant Spanish practice for the priests. So .far, 167 priests have finishL'<1 the course.

"Have a Go" , Several' years ago, when the city of London was experiencing a wave of crime, Scotland Yard appealed to Londoners to -"have a go at the criminals" if they could do so without endangering, their own lives. The Londoners responded with all the verve that might be expected of a people that has for many centuries understood that unless there is order and respect for law on -an island, then living could become not only distasteful and difficult but almost impossible. Londoners kept a close watch on the streets, and let some mugger attempt a crime and he found himself being chased by bowler-hatted gentlemen frorr the City and by schooll?oys throwing' rocks, by respectable housewives willing to ram him with a pram and by ,all sorts of passersby, ready to "have a go" at him. I There have been a few instances' this past week in New York City that have brought optimism into the hearts of the police and, given rise to the hope that people are beginning to show cooperation for the good of all. The 'instances all involved flagrant open crimes and the perpetrators-as the New York police phr~se it-found themselves being attacked by ordinary citjzens indignant at the outrages taking place on the city streets. People chased ~ muggers, youngsters threatened them with boards; a.nd in all cases the arrival of police cars br6ught relief to the criminals who ~ere quite happy to escape the hands of their captors and retreat to the safety of police protection. No one is advocating vigilante justice. But it is good when all citizens become outraged at evil, band together to oppose it whenever they see it, and willing to "have a go" at those who dare to run rough-shod <;>Ver the rights and well-being of others.

But there can be no vacation from God. And there also must be the exercise of every care so that accidents donoi:' mar what was planned as happiness or vacation.

It explains that word in view of the total celebration respecting the ability of the people to understana and in terms of their daily life." Local adaptation was also stressed .in the general intercessions. "Insight and a certain freedom should go into the composition of these intercessions, for they are both essential to the very nature of this prayer," the congregat!on said. The congregation stressed the role of the. priest in bringing together the universal elements of the Mass and the elements that can be adapted to the local community. ". "As (the priest) presides over the liturgical action, whether by reading, singing, or by use of gestures, he should carefully help the participants to achieve a true sense of community as they celebrate and live the memorial of the Lord,"- the congregation said. The four eucharistic prayers, which replaced'the single Canon of the Mass several years ago, are i,n use around 'the world. While the Vatican has also approved other. eucharistic prayers for use in particular countries, no additional ones have been approved for use in the United States. ' Father Rotelle said that the U. S. bishops' liturgy secretariat is in the process of developing other eucharistic prayers for possible . use in this country. Some of these may be designed for particular occasions or particular groups such as children. Under the guidelines established by the Vatican, these must be approved by the national bishops' conference and then sent to Rome for approval by the Vatican ,before they can be used in liturgical celebrations. "I personally wish they had IlJllowed episcopal conferences to prepare their own eucharistic prayers, but maybe that will come later," said Father Rotelle.

Conferences Show Vitality of Church VATICAN CITY (NC)-Bish,ops' conferences demonstrate the "Vitality" and the "modernity of the institutional Church," Pope Paul VI told thousands gathered in St. Peter's Square for his noontime blessing June 17. Cooperation between the body of bishops and the Holy See is as old as the Church, the Pope said, but the worldwide formation of bishops' conferences recommended by the Second Vatican Council gives testimony to the perennial vitality and the ever-growing modernity of the institutional Church.

Bishops Meeting Shows Concern For Family Life RIO DE JANEIRO (NC)-Bishops from the United States, Canada and Latin America will gather here at the end of June to take a close look at the condition of marriage ~l1d the family in their areas. ' Continuing '. earlier joint consultations oll'.··Church problems, the eighth In~er-American Bishops meeting ,will consider ways of making Christian love, marriage and family life more relevant to contemporary society. Cardinal Eugenio Sales of Rio will be host to six other cardinals, 18 bishops and teams of priests and lay advisers. They will review thre~ working papers - for the United States, Canada and Latin America-on ':the family: a vision of the reality, theological reflection, and a pastoral response." Teams of theologians, social scientists and experts on pastoral work have developed a comprehensive survey of conditions for Christian family living throughout the New World. 'Think Team' Many of the spring regional bishops meetings in the United States dealt· with the subject, and last March the Latin American Bishops Council (CELAM) asked a "think team" to come lip with recommendations to curb further deterioration of family life. The Canadian Bishops Conference has also dealt with the pastoral care of the family. In April it started a national study of family life. Cardinals George B. Flahiff of Winnipeg, John Krol of Philadelphia, Humberto Medeiros of Boston, Avelar Brandao Vilela of Sao Salvador, Brazil, Raul Silva of Santiago, (Chile), and Pablo Munoz Vega of Quito, Ecuadlor, are attending the study sessions along with Cardinal Sale. Other participants from the United States will be Coadjutor Archbishop Leo C. Byrne of St. Paul-Minneapolis, Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll of Miami, Archbishop Thomas A. Donnellan of Atlanta, Bishop George W. Ahr. of Trenton, Auxiliary Bishop Juan Arzube of Los Angeles and Bishop James S. Rausch, general secretary of the National Conference of Catholic' Bishops.

Abbot to Found New Monasticism ROME (NC)-The Benedictine abbot of St. Paul's Outside the Walls-a controversial figure because of his social and political views-said in a Pentecost Sunday sermon that he. will try to found a new kind of monastic life in what he called "the new desert, the anonymous quarters on the outskirts of the great cities." A monk at St. Paul's Outside the Walls confirmed to NC News that abbot Giovanni Franzoniwho has drawn the fire of conservative churchmen in Romehas decided to leave St. Paul's in an attempt to create a modern monasticism in a working-class district of, Rome. The monk said Abbot Franzoni had made his decision "mainly because most monks of St. Paul's Outside the Walls do not share his ineas."

What I do fall back on in my closet at' this time of the year, when school is still in session but one's thoughts are on the heaches,are those jacket dresses that have become a very impor~ tant part of a busy woman's wardrobe. Sleeveless, they are t.he perfect answer to unbearable heat, yet with the jacket to tote along they can even be enjoyable in places where the airconditioning is turned on to the highest degree. ' What is the proper attire at t.he present time if you're for'ced to work when the sun is at its hottest? This Pi course depends a great deal o~~,where you work. If it's an air:coditioned office, then your problem .is nil and those long slee-&ed knits that you bought in Jan~~ry ,and February can still be utiHzed. However, if open windo~I' then sleeveless dresses are a ~ust. For the scOpol teacher who has most of th~' summer off, the only time these will be needed are those '~dog IIdays" in June but she hates to invest large amounts of money in strictly summer attire, for she'U spend the rest of the, summer in golf skirts, shorts or the like. Linen Sheath Transitional clothes are hard to come hy; either they are too sporty for office attire or too warm and overdressed to be comfortable. One of the most comfortable type of outfits that I have found, along with the jacket dress for summer working women, is the linen-like sheath with perhaps a monogram or interesting pin to relieve its plainness. Halters, bare midriffs, and other extreme fashions that seem to create such a rage when temperatures rise are. certainly not office wear, although I have gotten to the point where I'm al-

her best when the humidity rises are to present a well dressed image without appearing overdressed, to appear cool while still ,remaining fairly well covered and above all to keep her own "cool" when she doesnt't feel' like it. Think cool-just think, fall'is only three i m.onths away!

Irish Presbyterians Vote tolOrdain Women BELFAST (NC)-The Presbyterian Church in Ireland, at its general assembly here; voted 410 to 132 to admit women to ordination as ministers. "Women in the whole of the Western world have, been promoted to the highest executive posts 'and' there are women prime mmlsters," said Dr. John F. Park of Stormont Presbyterian • Church, who has proposed the resolution. '''Our church' will not be a piorleer. The Church in Scotland, the United Reform Church in England and some European and Scandinavian churches have women ministers and there has been no adverse reaction." . Attackin'g the resolution, the Rev. Donald Gillies quoted St,. Paul: "Sin lentered the worTd because of the deception of the woman. Instead of submitting to God she rebelled, and wanted to be \i:ke :God." The Rev. Gillies claimed that Eve was the founder of women's liberation, which had led to the entry of sin into the world. I

Some time ago I wrote that I felt Christ was a happy man, that He couldn't have attracted crowds unless He radiated warmth, love .. : a joy of living. I said, too, that I felt that part of our role as Christians was to share His joy of living. A reader took S1. Peter said to him, as they exception to the column . . . approached the third door, "Be and wrote why she objected quiet, and make sure those other to my attitude: doors are closed tightly." "How could He, the sinless Son of God, be happy knowing the minds of men? He sawall new sins which Satan would de-

vise, knew the perfidy of man and yet the burden was on Him to save the ungrateful ones. The instances where Christ was happy are rare indeed. His task was not a frivolous one. He had a serious burden to save mankind. The only joy He knew was in saving souls. "In our world today, with its drug culture, the pornography foisted on our youngsters, the moral decadence in general, Satan has a hey-day and you talk of joy." Choose Your Heaven I am reminded of a story of a man who died. He practiced no ' religion, hut nevertheless had live,d a good life. When he arrived at the gates of heaven, St. Peter said to him, "Since you were not a member of any parlicuar church, you're free to pick out whichever heaven you want to stay in." The man asked, "What do you mean ... whichever heaven ...?" S1. Peter said, "Let me show you." He led the man to a door, which he opened. Millions of people were inside. They were all happy, singing, laughing, enjoying themselves. As he closed, the door,' S1. Peter said, "Tha,t's the Jewish heaven." ,,; S1. Peter opened a second door. Millions of people were inside ... all happy, singing, laughing, enjoying themselves. "That's the Protestant heavcQ." The man was' pl'eased with t)1e prospects of heaven, and became rather animated in his enthusism.

Reople Participating I ' In Bishop's Selection HULL (NC)-The clergy, Religious and laity of the Hull diocese here in Canada are being asked to help in the selection of a new bishop to succeed Bishop Paul-Emile Charbonneau, 50, who resigned for reasons of health. A public opinion survey is now being conducted in the Hull diocese to obtain an assessment of the diocese and to find out what qualities people would like to see in the next bishop. "We are not asking for any names, but only the qualities that people would like to see in the next bishop," said Msgr. JeanMaurice Theoret, pastor of St. Jean Bosco's Church here.

He opened the last door. All the people were kneeling, piously praying, with long, solemn faces. As S1. Peter closed the door, the man asked, "Why all the quiet ... and your concern about the noise from the other two heavens." St. Peter shrugged his shoulders. "That's the Catholic heaven, and they think they're the only ones up here." The letter writer said, "The only joy He knew was in saving souls." Man, Too Yet, He was a man, as well as God. , Didn't ,He enjoy His mother's cooking? Didn't He enjoy the beauty of a sunset, or a refreshing drink of water on a hot day? We do know that He enjoyed a party'... His participati'on at Cana made the New Testament. His life, like ours, had both joys and sorrows. ' Should we not enjoy? Should we go around with tears, desperation, and dejection? Should we all wear sack-cloth and ashes, 'berating ourselves for our own sins, and the sins of all mankind? Should we constantly lament, and bemoan? Should we' dwell on all the faults, weaknesses, and immoralities of the world? My correspondent says that we should have no joy because the world today is plagued with drugs, pornography, and moral decadence. But in my lifetime I have heard men reading the Bible ... while orbiting the moon. I have seen the coronation of a Pope via a satelIite relayed TV picture., One disease after another has been wiped from the face of the earth through medical research. And for the first time in man's h,istory, the governments of great nations are seriously trying to solve the problems of hunger and poverty. This is, indeed, a great time to be alive! Enjoy!

Communication Office Gets New Director LANSING (NC)-Father Donald L. Eder has been appointed director of the re-established Lansing diocesan office of communications. Establishment of the office came at the suggestion of the diocesan priorities committee, which had expressed a concern to communic"te the work of the Church and the Christian message through modern means. Father Eder, 44, was ordained June 5, 1954 and has served the Lansing diocese in pastoral assignments and in education work": He holds a master's degree from Michigan State University and spent the last few months of 1971 at the Institute for Continuing Education sponsored by U"J U.

Doctors Boycott Catholic Hospital JACKSON (NC) - A group of local obstetricians and pediatricians have decided to boycott the obstetrics unit at Mercy Hospital here in Michigan because the hospital win- not allow surgical sterilizations. Although an organization has been set up to fight the boycott of Mercy Hospital, which is run by the Sisters of Mercy, the boy-

cott seems to be rather successful so far. In the first five days of June there were only two births compared with 20 in the same period of June 1972. The doctors who are boycotting the Catholic hospital are referring their patients to the cityoperated Foote Hospital, which has shown an increase in its obstetrical unit's occupancy from

45 per cent in early June, 1972 to 75 per cent in early June, 1973. Of seven practicing obstetricians in the Jackson area, six say they are practicing exclusively ~t Foote. Complicating the situation is a proposed consolidation of services offered by Mercy and Foote Hospitals.

Antipoverty Unit . Issues Manual For Schools WASHINGTON (NC) - The Campaign for Human Development (CHD), the U. S. bishops' antipoverty agency, has published a teachers' manual for poverty and social justice education in the nation's Catholic schools and Confraternity of Christian Doctrine programs. The manual, entitled "Poverty and Justice in America," was prepared by the CHD's.education staff. Geared primarily for high school and junior high students, the program can also be adapted for use in the elementary grades. It is designed to be used with or without the 10 curriculum modules on. poverty and racial an~ ethnic groups. Various Projects The manual outlines 18 projects which teachers can use to help students understand the nature and workings of social injustice. The projects are based on an activity-reflection format, in which the students first en-. gage in an activity such as a poverty game or community survey or see a filmstrip or slide presentation. Afterwards the students discuss the meaning or application of what they have seen or done. The projects range froin graffiti analysis to living on a welfare diet for a week, from multimedia presentations of the lifestyles of poor whites, 'blacks, Spanish-speaking and Indians, to home or community interviews and acting out government procJ esses. . The manual also includes a bibliography for teachers arid suggestions for publicizing school programs through the local media. It is available at' the national· office of the Campaign' for Human Development, U.S. Catholic Co~ference, at 1312 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.

Study of Authority In Church Urged VATICAN CITY (NC) - The joint working group of the Roman Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches recommended to its parent bodies that they study the role of authority in the Chlirch "as an essential part of its teaching and pastoral responsibility." . The Roman Catholic WCC group at its May 21-25 meeting in Windsor, England, also recommended studies of the role of the Church in social and political affairs, especially in the field of civil rights. A third recommen· d!ltion encouraged studies of the legitimate contribution that "new movements" might make to "the total fellowship of the churches." This was announced in a joint communique published here June 15. The five-day meeting was the 13th since the joint working group was established in 1966 to single out and encourage opportunities for oooperation between the Roman Catholic Church and the WCC.

A FEW FORTUNATE ONES: This family group considers itself one of the most fortunate among the millions of Peruvians because their shelter of a thatched roof over a mobile ,truck with .old doors for walls giv~s some shelter.

PARIS (NC)-over a quarter of France's 60,000 physicians signed a declaration opposing abortion, saying that "the deliberate interrupti~n of a pregnancy for reasons of eugenics or to resolve a moral, economic or social conflict, is not the proper action of a physician." The statement was released at a press conference here by' Dr. Jerome Lejeune, professor of genetics at the University of Paris. It came in response to a petition by 330 doctors, clergymen and medical students favor'ing the. liberalization of France's 1920 abortion law. The 1920 law makes abortion a crime except when the life of the mother is in danger. The French government's council of ministers recently approved a new abortion bill which would allow abortions if the mother's health is endangered, if it is certain that the child wpuld be born abnormal, in cases of rape, or incest, or where there is serious risk to the mother's health. The new bill must still be approved by the French parliament before it becomes law. Dr. Andre Hellegers, director of the Kennedy Institute for Bioethic,s at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., who was with Dr. Lejeune at the press conference, told NC News that the French doctors' statement is also being circulated in parts of Latin America, in the United States, and in other parts of Europe.·He said several thousand doctors outside of France have already signed the statement. . The statement declared that "the fruit of conception is a livling being from the very instant of its development." From fertilization to birth "it is the same living being who develops, matures and dies. Its particular characteristics render it unique - and therefore irreplaceable."

Tanzania Catholics MOSHI (NC) - There were 2,663,770 Catholics and 118,723 catechumens (those preparing to be baptized) in Tanzania as of the end of June 1972, according to statistics recently published by Jimboni, the bulletin of the Moshi diocese. Tanzania has a total population of 12,777,349.

Lay Teachers Sue Cleveland Diocese CLEVELAND (NC)-The Cathol:c Elementary Lay Teachers Association (CELTA) has filed a .$2 million damage suit against the diocese of Cleveland in its effort to win recognition as the bargaining agent for the elementary teachers in the diocese's schools. The suit names as defendants Bishop Clarence G. Issenmann; Mrs. William N. Novicky, .diocesan superintendent of education; the members of the Board of Catholic Education; and all pastors in the diocese.

And we c~n't forget the dad, who, trying to offset the grief of his young son over the death of his favorite little turtle, suggested a full funeral. Together they dug the,plot, made a tombstone, lined la box with velvet and proceded solemnly out the back door. At this point, the turtle moved slightly. -The boy , looked at the turtle, then at the anticipated funeral, and said to his dad, "Letis kill him." Finally, there's this mother who, full with child, told her young daughter about the blessed event but asked her not . to tell Little Brother that Mommy was carrying a baby, because the time would seem so 10l)g to ' him. A few days later, Little Brother askep, "When are you going to the hospital to have that rabbit?" "Rabbit?" shrieked his mother. Little Daughter explained, "I knew you didn't want him to know about 'the baby so I told him you were going to have a rabbit." Naturally he was disappointed. So it goes fellow parents, but stay in there. I understand there's a lot more to come. - '

Those Who Leave Should 'Have Tears in Heart' The Bishops call' for "dialogue" and "legitimate pluralism" in the Church and we can see from history how the Church has lived with vast changes, social, cultural, scientific.

St. Peter simply assumed that Christianity would

By BARBARA WARD

carryon all the externals of the law of Moses_in dress, in die~s, in circumcision. St. Paul, on the contrary, belonged to the educated middle class of Romanized Jewry. He knew that if Christianity came to the Greek and Latin cities of the Roman Empire clad in the cultural trappings of Jewry, its chances of penetrating that society would be' virtually nil. So, at the first Council of the Church at Jerusalem, St. Paul led the group who argued against the retention o,f the external rules, of the Mosaic Law. The arguments were pressed home. St. Paul "withstood Peter to his face" in the full assembly and won his point. The Chr,ist'ian Gentiles would now evolve a culture and a pattern of life as much influenced by the classical tradition of Greece and Rome as by the Biblical tradition of the Jews. • Difficult, Needed Does this archetypal example of both the necessity and thfi! diff.iculty of dialogue tell us anything about the Church today? She confronts as perhaps never before the problem of living with other cultures and other faiths. She faces, too, a technological era new in history in which science is both all- , powerful, but beginning to lose its earlier promise of omniscence and salvation. It is a time of tremendous opportunities and tremendous risks. What are the modern eqUivalents of the obstacles St. Paul attacked - the Mosaic Law and local Jewish regulations of diet and dress? What are the particular cultural roadblocks in the way of wider and deeper understanding of Chr.ist's Gospel of love and suffering and resurrection? We have to ask these questions as loyal Christians. How can we do so without tearing the Church apart? St. Peter and St. Paul between them give the Ibeginnings of an answer. Their divisions of understanding led to absolutely no break in trust and affection. The Acts of the Apostles are very explicit about personal divisions. St. Paul himself mentions them freely in his letters. But between the Church's leader and the Church's chief mis-

of St. Paul. And perhaps we might say, ,in parenthesis, that this gives us one more insight into St. Peter's uniquely lovably personality - outspoken, rash, brave,' mistaken, profoundly humble and, like all truly humble people, ready to be wrOng. So perhaps this illumina,ting episode in the earliest life of the Church teaches us what we might call the style of the dialogue. Delicate Balance Both those who propose changes and those who think the changes unwise and dangerous must act with profound seriousness. The balance in the life of a community between renewal and continuity is' always incredibly delicate. ' There is no certainty that either side is always right. Some issues cry out for continuity, others for change. Only a fundamentally wise and serjous dialogue can find out, in each particular case, where the balance lies. The protagonists must also treat each other with the deepest human respect. Accusations of bad faith, of trickery, of "radicalism," of "clerical tyranny" make nonsense of true dialogue. St. Paul "withstood" St. Peter, but he did not remind him about the cock crowing at dawn. This respect is especially called for from those who are in authority for they are in the stronger position. One reason why the Bishops call for "due process" and open, proceedings when questions of openness and frankness are part of the respect a man in authority owes to those who are within his jurisdiction. Love Needed But equally the critics and the' supporters of new ideas owe the Church "establishment" respect and trust. Nor is it possible to renew a beloved institution by marching out and denouncing it with all available means of pub· licity. Erasmus and Thomas More were better "reformers" than Luther, the revolutionary. But all this is simply another way of saying that love is the precondition of creative dialogue. We cannot debate fruitfully with people we scorn or hate. Even if agreement is impossible, th0se who preserve the continuity of the Church should not show triumph. And tho'se who feel they have to go should leave in the mood of Samuel Adams who, after America's Declaration of Independence, thought all day of England with tears in his heart.

In the Lands of the Bible THE DEAD SEA The contrasts to be found in the Holy Land are nowhere more apparent than between the two seas of the Jordan Valley. In the north lies the Sea of Galilee and in the south the. Dead Sea.

Near the headwaters of the Jordan, the Sea of Galilee is filled. with fresh, sweet water from the heights of Mount Hermon and the Antilebanons. In the past it has supported a large fishing industry and even today, one sees fishermen on the shore and in their boats following the trade of Peter. On the other hand, the Dead Sea lives up to its name and is biologically dead. The high

There was a pensive little girl waiting to be fitted with ari artificial leg, a widow weeping over the body of her husband and tear-filled faces of young and old. There was a beggar dying in a Calcutta train s.tation, a person undergoing surgery in a remote region ,of Burma, and a tough GI weeping after a buddy's death:

In the 6th century before Christ the founder of a new sect within Hinduism proposed a method of liberation which \ even the lower castes could follow. Eventually this sect was branded as heretical and beCame a religion separate from Hinduism. It is known as Buddhism.

The founder of Buddhism was horn into the warrior caste in . India about 560 B.C. As a young man Siddhartha Gautama was apparently shielded from the harsher realities of life such as death, disease, and poverty. Gautama married and had one son. But when he faced the fact of pain and suffer-ing he found no satisfaction in the answers given by Hinduism. He left his family to begin a search for a. better solution to the problem of suffering. Gautama continued his spiritual search for five or six years. Yoga, fasting, meditation, morti_ fication failed to show the way. Finally while sitting under a Botree he experienced the illumination which revealed the true path to emancipation. From then on he was known as the Buddha or the Enlightened One.

American Church Needs' More Monsignor Egans

Buddha Religion

A lot of people around the American Church rejoiced to hear that Notre Dame's first Reinhold Niebuhr Award went to Monsignor John Egan. The "Little Monsignor," as he is affectionately known by many of his friends in Chicago, is one of the great churchmen of our era. Even action, marriage education, urban problems, and now pastoral if he has to receive the theology-Msgr.

gates that have led them to new, rich, constructive, creativc lives. Few people who have come into contact with him for any period of ' time have escaped his enthusiasm and his instinctive intuitions as to what ought to be done and how. In times of change, uncertainty and confu- . sion, the gatekeepers who can not only open the gates but persuade people to go through them and then indicate the directions of travel are absolutely indispensable. If there is another gatekeeper in the valley as skillful as Jack Egan, I have yet to encounter him. And yet, as I reflect on his career, I am troubled; for I see no one in my generation or the generations ihat are coming after me who is capable of playing the same sort of role. Jack Egan opened the gates for me and for many of my generation. I atone time foolishly thought that I might do the same for those coming after me. Alas, that is clearly not to be; but if there are any people. of my age who are playing the same. role that John Egan has played so brilliantly for so long. I don't know who they are. And if there is a new breed of gatekeeper coming after us, I am afraid it is invisible.

et is honored in his own time if not by his own people. Therc is a bit of irony about Msgr. Egan's award being named in honor of perhaps the greatest of all American Protestant theologians. Niebuhr wrote many hrilliant books about political ethics and philosophy, but he was, if one is to judge by some of his essays on practical political problems, scarcely capable of delivering a precinct if his life depended on it. (I remember his 1960 article claiming that "most priests" had v,otec! for Nixon. How in the world he knew. that escaped me then and still does.) Msgr.

In the Old Testament it is called Chinnereth. Chinnereth is the Hebrew word for harp, a term which describes the shape of the lake and from which Gennesaret and Gennesar are derived. Beauty Spot The word lake more accurately describes the body of water· because of its small I)ize. Its length is 12-13 -miles and its width is only 7-8 miles. Its blue waters, the ,cliffs that surround it on three sides' and the green plain to the north combine to make the lake a true beauty spot. Its tranquil atmosphere contrasts sharply w.ith the hustle and bustle of Jerusalem and most visitors find their visit to the lake and its many historic and sacred sites a high point of their stay in the .Holy Land.

Manchester Vicar Named Director WASHINGTON (NC) - Msgr. Wilfrid H. Paradis, ,episcopal vicar for Christian formation in the Manchester, N. H. diocese, has been named project director for the planned U. S. National Catechetical directory. In his post, which he will assume on August 1, Msgr. Paradis will serve as executive officer for a broadly representative directory committee responsible for drafting the text of the Cate· chetical Directory and for the management of a wide ranging consultation process that will precede it. Msgr: Paradis is a member of the Canon Law Society of America and the National Catholic Historical Association. In 1971 the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy published a General Catechetical Directory for the worldwide Church and asked that -it be incorporated and concretized in national directories &ccording to local needs.

Hinayana or the Lesser Vehicle is the form of Buddhism found in Thailand, Ceylon, Burma, Cambodia, Laos and Indonesia.. Its adherents prefer the term Theravada and claim to be closer to the original ideas of Buddha. In Tibet, Buddhism combined with magic and demon worship in what we know as Lamaism. Perhaps 100,000 Amerkans, mostly of Japanese ancestry, practice Buddhism. The Fathers of Vatican II observed: "Buddhism in its multiple forms acknowledges the radical insufficiency of this shifting world. It teaches a path by which men, in 'a devout and confident spirit, can either reach a state of absolute freedom or attain supreme enlightenment by their own efforts or by higher assistance." '

,THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-THurs. June 21, 1973

Continued from Page Sixteen Enlightened by this knowledge Buddha was moved by compassion for suffering mankind. Instead of continuing to enjoy the· happy state of nirvana he achieved during the night of his enlightenment, he tra~elled up and . down India teaching his Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path Qf Righteousness. He devoted the remaining 45 years of his life to sharing his saving knowledge with those caught up in the mystery of life's sorrows. Countless millions of men ~nd women for 2500 years have therefore revered him as the "compassionate Buddha."

By RT. REV.

MSGR. JOHN S. KENNEDY

This book, then, is mostly about William F. Buckley,- Jr., with Senator James Buckley a secondary figure, and their eight brothers and sisters, living and dead, in ·distinctly minor roles. Of their mother, there are a few distant glimpses, and their father's ~career is outlined and his character suggested. Mr. Markmann's attitude toward the, Buckleys is ambivalent. In a way, he admires them; their intelligence and style, their energy and loyalty. But a theme repeatedly sounded in the book is the threat which, in the author's view, they represent. Thus, Mr. Markmimn; while granting William F. Buckley, Jr.'s sincerity, argues that "it is of course, precisely this honesty that makes the able man far more dangerous than the demagogue." He' maintains that "a Buckley, like a Lenin or a Trotsky ... having been brought by reason and faith to embrace a view, will neyer change convictions for mere advantage. Such men are the greatest possible menaces." Conservative Party Presumably the concrete form which the menace takes is the Conservative Party, until now a force only in New York State. William Jr. made it viable by his conspicuous run for mayor of New York City, and James' success as its candidate for the U. S. Senate in a three-race, brought it to sudden majority. According to Michael Harrington, former chairman of the Socialist Party, "the Conservative Party is a very serious development thilt could be a portent of significant change in American political life." We shall see. Debating Devices Mr. Markmann tries very hard to establish the existence of a monolithic Buckley doctrine, which all the members of the family subscribe to and promote, and indeed something distinctiv;e which might be called Buckleyism, although he does not use the term. Yet his own evidence indicates that the family does not unanimously and undeviatingly cling to an immutable doctrine, and also that change is discernible within William, Jr.'s thinking.

cially'interesting is the detailing' of his debating devices.

Former Prime Minister B'elieves Divorce Unacceptable in Ireland DUBLIN (NC) - Former Irish Prime Minister Jack Lynch has said he does not believe the Irish people as a whole would accept or approve of legislation providing for divorce. In an interview in The Catholic Standard, weekly newspaper pUblished here, Lynch, leader of t.he opposition Fianna Fail party, which was ousted as the ruling party in February elections, said also he does not think divorce would be a major factor in the process of reunification for the predominantly Catholic Irish Republic with Northern Ireland, which is two-thirds Protestant. The constitution of the Irish Republic now forbids divorce. "Even if this was a very important factor in the ultimate reunification of Ireland, I think people would have to consider it very carefully," Lynch said. Protestants Opposed He said he believes that, even apart from religious grounds, a "majority of the majority" Protestant population in the North would not favor divorce. "You must remember, first of all," he said, referring to Catholics in Northern Ireland, "that one-third of the population in the North would almost certainly favor our ban on divorce on religious grounds." The Church of Ireland (Anglican), the second

largest Protestant denomination in Northern' Ireland, does not favor divorce either, he said, and while the Presbyterian Church, the largest Protestant denomination in the North, tolerates it, it does not encourage it. At the family level, he said, the Protestant community does not fayor it. , Special Position In May, in a report to the general synod of the Church of Ireland meeting in Dublin, a committee headed by Archbishop Alan Buchanan of Dublin said that the constitutional ban on divorce in the Irish Republic should be removed, Lynch also discussed the article of the Irish constitution referring to the special position of the Catholic Church which the people had voted to delete in a plebiscite last December. Article 44, Lynch said, had no great significance and had not put the Catholic Church in a special position. It was merely a statement of the fact that 95 per cent of the population of the Irish Republic are Catholic. "I don't think it had any great impact in the end," he said, "in other words, the Unionists (those in Northern Ireland who favor continued union with Great Britain) said okay, that's that, so what."

Oppose New Prayer Version

HUNTINGTON (NC)-Ninetytwo per cent of the respondents to a recent survey taken by Our Sunday V.isitor, National Catholic Weekly, oppose changing the text of the Our Father. The changes were proposed by the International Consultation on English Texts, an ecumenical advisory group of liturgical experts, in an effort to make the Our Father more meaningful to' Christians, Of the 2,613 people who responded by sending in the ballots printed in Our Sunday Visitor, only 210 favored the proposed changes. Many of those who voted for the traditional version expressed the opinion that there have been enough changes in the Church. The proposed new form reads: "That's about it, Father... But if that's you tapping the line, Sgt. Feebrick, would Our Father in heaven, holy be you call me right back?

Cardinal Krol Praises Ireland's Attitude Toward R'eligious Freedom GLENSTAL (NC) - "In the Irish context, freedom of religion means freedom for religion not freedom from religion," Cardinal John Krol, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, told Irish churchmen here. The Philadelphia archbishop began an eight-day visit to Ireland by offering Mass at the Shannon. Airport, then continued to Columba Abbey where he addressed an ecumenical meeting of leading Catholic and Protestant dignitaries of western Ireland, Also in attendance were the Catholic archbishop of Cash~ el, the bishop of Lim'erick, and Church of Ireland deans of Killaloe and Limerick. Contrasting Ireland's encourugement of religion with the "active hostility" or "grudging tolerance" shown to religion in some nations, Cardinal Krol noted: "There is a recognition on all levels of Irish life that to deny man's origin in God, his dependence on God and his destiny with God is to deny the ultimate reality about man and to frustrate the very purpose of his existence:" Citing the fact that Ireland, although 95 per cent Catholic, has had two Protestant presidents and 'a Jewish .Ierd mayor
