Draft rejects US .nuclearpolicy

By Jerry FUteau NC News Service Important elements of current U.S. nuclear deterrence policy are condemned as immoral in a draft national pastoral letter written by a committee of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. The document, specifically' re­ jects, on the basis of traditional Catholic moral pr:inciples, any policy that holds out the' option of nuclear response to a non­

Liberty's lover

By Pat McGowan Two years ago The Anchor ran a Fourth of July feature story on Charles DeLeo, self-styled Keep­ er of the Flame of the Statue of Liberty. It was not an Anchor exclus­ ive. The Reader's Digest, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The New York Daily News, many other newspapers and tele­ vision programs: all have had their fancy caught by a 34-year­ old 'vietnam veteran who's con­ ducted a lifelong love affair with Lady Liberty. For the Fourth of July, 1982, in a world torn by wars, terrified of nuclear annihilation, not very sure of anything anymore, it seems a good idea to run another story about DeLeo, who has his priorities extremely straight: cross, flag, Lady Liberty. Born on New York City's Low­ er East Side, he quit high school to join the Marines, served in Vietnam, then drifted from one job to another before, 10 years ago, destiny caught up with him. Out of work and visiting the statue that dominates New York harbor, he impulsively applied for a National Park Service job on Liberty Island. Hired as a maintenance mechanic's helper, he cleans the island grounds and performs other routine chores. But before long he was drawn to the statue itself, where he now also checks the four 10,000 candlepower bulbs in Lady Lib­ erty's torch, cleans her 200 win­ dowpanes and keeps her interior paint shipshape. Members of the public climb to Liberty's crown, 26 stories above the harbor. But DeLeo climbs four more stories, up a cramped ladder within the statue's right arm, to' re'ach the torch, where he begins each day with prayer, perched on a breathtakingly in­ substantial catwalk surrounding the "lamp beside the golden door." He feels ~is work is a religious vocation. When Pope John Paul I( spoke at nearby Battery Park in 1979 he lit Liberty's torch and prayed for the suc­ cess of the papal pilgrimage. Un­ married, he uses most of his $18,000 yearly salary on such projects as sponsoring overseas orphans ~nd helping the missions of Mother Teresa.

To date he has given away over $22,000, responding to quer­ ies such as "Are you crazy, Charlie, giving all your money away when times are so unsure and money is so tight?" with a simple, "I don't give my money away, but put it into God's bank." DeLeo is generous with time as well as money, answering let· ters, of which he receives hun­ dreds, mainly' from schoolchild. ren, promptly and at length. Among his correspondents is Luella Wagner of St. Dominic's parish, Swansea. Some time ago she heard of the Keeper of the Flame and sent him a Statue of Liberty commemorative medal her husband had obtained in .France during World War·II. .The gift sparked a regular cor­ respondence and recently Mrs. Wagner received a gift in re­ turn: two small pieces of one of the original gl!lSS panes protect­ ing Liberty's torch. DeLeo explained that the torch .was earlier this spring hit by lightning, shattering glass which had been in place since 1892. He collected the shards and has sent them as precious relics to special friends. He also sends correspondents copies of his poems, many of which have' been brought to­ gether in pamphlet (oim. He is especially proud of a prose poem about Lady Liberty, which he recently recited on "Real to Reel," ·a nationa11y syndicated Catholic television program. It follows:

The document was not made public. Nevertheless, stories on it appeared in the general press and elsewhere. They were ap­ parently based on what reporters were being told about the docu­ ment, however, rather than on a reading of the document itself. The document itself reveals tightly reasoned applications of moral principles which, if agreed to by the rest of the U.S. hier­ archy, would make the final Turn to Page Seven

Pope studies Vatican • grIevances VATICAN CITY ,(NC) - Pope John Paul II will reply personalIy to grievances of tht;l 1,670-mem­ bet Association of Vatican Lay Employees. The papal secretary of state, Cardinal Agostino Casaroli met last Friday with association rep­ resentatives and read a letter written In the pope's name. The pope' said the worker's problems merited "an examina­ tion deep and organic" and promised to review them himself and reply to them. The workers' grievances near­ ly caused the first strike in the history of Vatican City State. The association held a silent pro­ test on May 3 inside the Vatican to demonstrate workers' solidar­ ity with their elected represen­ tatives. On June 14, workers planned a strike during the first two hours of each shift, but the action was postpo~ed because of the pope's pressing schedule ,of trips to Britain, Argentina and Switzer­ land within a two-week period. Vatican sources said that the strike has now been deferred in­ definitely and that another meet­ ing between Cardinal Casaroli and worker representatives is planned for today.• Among worker demands are wage and benefit increases, pen­ sion plan modifications, a 36· hour work week and an end to a Vatican policy prohibiting hiring of employees' children.

Electronic Warfare' The battlefields of Lebanon and the Falklands have indeed shown the world that the outcome of modern combat d,epends on electronic gadgetry. It is ·also evident from these encounters that war is very good business for firms that design and package electronic arms. As one observer stated: "Electronics have gone to war and' war today is good business." . Companies such as IBM, RCA and GTE, along with uncounted other concerns, large and small, are providing the electronic gimmicks that make modern weapons so deadly. Because of these so-called miracles of technology, electronic warfare has become a staggering force in our social order. This year alone, it is estimated that American sales of electronic weaponry will exceeed $7 billion. Keep in mind that similar business deals are being measured in francs, marks and rubles. Electronic warfare as seen nightly on television is actually an international business venture as ins'atiable ·in its greed as it is deadly in its design. International competition in the sale of these weapons is as fierce as is their ultimate purpose. The IBM/ Japanese cloak and dagger disclosures are typical. However, no matter what is said and done by other nations, there can· be little doubt that American electronic gadgetry' is a most ,popular export item. U.S. aircraft and other electronic items are the backbone of Israeli success in the' Mideast. Texas Instruments, McDonnell Douglas and Grumman,to cite.a few, are major suppliers of armaments to Israel. Due chiefly to American electronic . ingenuity, it seems, Israel has been extremely.successful . in its encounters with the PLO and Syrian forces. Although it is known that American-manufactured equipment was used by both sides in the Falklands,· its influence in determining the outcome of the struggle has not as yet been determined. But in many ways the Falklands were a'proving ground for 'the hitherto untested destructive capabilities of electronic warfare. The lack of available information in this area indicates that the electronic weapons business is shadowy indeed. What we do know is that electronic arms have changed the methodology of warfare. We also know that this country is one of the world's prime suppliers of such arms. As the generals and corporation boards evaluate the effectiveness of their strategy and weaponry in Lebanon and .the Falklands, we should be well aware that we have in' many ways taken a step backward in our so-called process of civilization. Once again, man has. lessened in importance. The machine, the gadget, is everything. We have entered an era in which machines are beginning to oppose not men but other machines. He who controls the machine, be it a com­ puter or a Sidewinder missile, will control man. In face of all this, may we 'hope that the human spirit will not falter. The world of the microchip has much to offer. But it must be permitted to become more than a sophisticated means for one nation to visit death upon another, as evidenced by the civilian casualty totals in Lebanon. Our world has become a testing ground for deadly' electronic games. Simply because we currently hold tech­ nical superiority, we should not assume that these games will never be played' in our own backyard. .

• .Prayer In By Father J. Harrington Massachusetts has had as many laws concerning prayer in . public schools as any state. After the 1962 Supreme Court ruling that such prayer was un· constitutional, in violation of the First Amendment prohibition a­ gainst establishment of ~eligion a 1974 Massachusetts statute man­ dated publ.ic school teachers to provide for a minute of silent meditation at the beginning of the school day. Since this pro­ cedure bypassed oral prayer, it was deemed COllstitutional by the Supreme Judicial Court. . But in 1979 Massachusetts passed a statute calling for vol. unteer-Ied classroom prayer: It was clearly contrary to the let­ ter of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling and was struck down by the state's high court. Since then the following con­ stitutional amendment has been proposed: "Nothing in this Con­ stitution shall be construed to prohibit individual or group prayer in public schools or other institutions. No person shall be required I;ly the United States or by any state to participate in prayer." However sincere the propon­ ents of this 'amendment ~ay' be, they seem ignorant of the diver­ · sity of religious: traditions,. the · nature of personal piety, and the · vulnerability of the young to peer pressure. Because of these fac­ tors, I could never support this amendment. There are 90 religious organ­ 'izatiorisin America with a memo bership of at least 50,000. How can one prayer be acceptable and in no way offensive to all these gro'ups? In a classroom in our own diocese there might be


Cambodian-American Buddhist, EvangeI.ical Protestant, Universa­ list, Roman Catholic, Jewish and Muslim children. While such di­ versity in one classroom is ad· mittedly unlikely, .it is possible. No child should be forced to choose between lip service com· pliance with or conscientious ab­ stention from a ritual. This is far too much for most children to handle. Similarly, it is beyond expectation that a prayer could be composed that would be like. ly to express the piety of a group of children of diverse religious backgrounds. Jack Danforth, an ordained Episcopal priest, active in polio tics, has astutely observed: "Prayer that is so generiil and so diluted as not to offend those of most faith is not a prayer at all. True prayer is robust prayer. It is bold prayer. It is almost by definition sectarian prayer."

schools classroom. A period of silent meditation seems the best way of protecting a child from being coerced into joining in .a set prayer that may have little or no meaning to him or her. Children should learn their prayers at home and should feel free to say them without impos­ ing their personal piety upon their classmates. It would, in fact, behoove the public schools to provide "released time" for students enrolled in sectarian re­ ligious training programs. Concern over public school prayer seems at present more the concern of politicians, than of 'church officials. This should indicate that the matter is really more a political .than a religious issue.

Busy-ness won't do

Remember Maureen, the woman who wanted a deep­ er relationship with her non­ communicative husband? Well, I got lots of mail on that one. It was evenly divided be­ tween those who, like Maureen, felt her pain and despair over facing 25 years with a husband who never talked or listened to her and those who had little pa­ tience with her complaint. These latter, almost to a per­ son, said, in effect, that Maureen needed to stop feeling sorry for herself and get involved in some meaningful vOlunteer work. "There are all kinds of organiza­ tions out there waiting for wo­ men like Maureen to help," wrote a representative writer. "Let her get off her duff and over to the Red Cross or the soup kitchen to get some mean­ ing out of life." Others sent long lists of local agencies looking for volunteers. I hear what these writers are saying but it bothers me because it emphasizes what i see as one of the major blocks to good per­ sonal communication: an accept­ ed cultural attitude that says that busy-ness and activity can com­ pensate for lacking intimacy. It's this attitude that drives men (and now, women) to workahol­ ism to make up for empty rela­ tionships in personal lives. And that isn't any response to those

who expect and want more than a physical marital relationship. The irony in Maureen's case is that she already over-volun­ teers. That's how I met her, in fact. She spends most of her time and gets most of her interperson­ al satisfaction from chu-rch work, an activity in which her husband shows little interest. asked her to respond to writers' suggesti.ons that she be­ come busier to alleviate her mari­ tal loneliness and she said, with evident anger, "Don't tell me to get more involved. I'm volunteer­ ing too much now. What I want is some sharing with my hus­ band, not one more activity. I didn't marry to find intimacy in the Red Cross." I

I've noticed that when couples begin to lose their relationship, their activity level with others· rises, whether it's in work or organizations. They join more clubs, take more courses, work more overtime - all of which alleviates the need and opportun­ ity to focus on' the problem in the first place, which is a dwind­ ling interest in one another. If they volunteer together, it's an· opportunity to relate, at least, but that's a rare move for these couples. Rather than telling a Maureen to get more involved we should encourage couples to strip them­ selves of these artificial outlets

question of Labor Secretary Ray­ mond ponovan puzzles him. "I don't mean to convict Ray Donovan," he adds, "but I find it disappointing, almost shocking, that when the FBI told White House cOllnse! Fred Fielding some disquieting news about Donovan's past, Fielding said, 'Don't pursue it.'" Fielding was "part of the Nix­ on period" - deputy to John Dean. "There was never anything that rubbed off on Fred Fielding, but I, would have chosen some­ one else." Cox 'has done more than speak of the insensitivity of the Reagan White House to the Watergate experience. Reagan has named two Water­ gate figures to obscure public posts: Frederic W. Malek, a Hal­ deman aide and author of the chilling "government responsive­ ness" memo, to the board of governors of the U.S. Postal Corp., and CREEP' Finance Chairman Maurice Stans to the Overseas Private Investment Corp. Cox, who is now chairman of Common Cause, announced im­ mediately on hearing of 'Stans' appointment that he would testi­ fy against it. Various friends of Stans have importuned him to accede to Stans' oft-repeated re­ quest to "give me back my good name." Cox is adamant, and the nomination has not been resub­ mitted to this Congress. Cox minds most the prosper­ ity and celebrity of the richly rewarded reminiscing perpetra­ tors of Watergate. "I ask myself if my Uncle Max would have published these books - -he was Maxwell Per­ kins of Scribner's, you know. And I tell myself that no repu­ table publisher would. I am puz­ zled what it tells us about our­ selves." He finds it "amazing" that Charles Colson, the born·again prison reformer, should have been conunencernent speaker at Wheaton College, while Elliot Richardson, the 'Boston Brahmin who heroically refused to fire Cox at Nixon's bidding, hardly figured in the commemorative roundups. , Ruefully, he recounts an ex­ perience at Tulane University. Through a series of mishaps, Cox found himself addressing some 25 embarrassed students in a hall that had been packed to the walls the week before to hear G. Gordon Liddy, the rat-eating, pistol-packing, tight-lipped CREEP heavy who served the longest jail sentence of them all. "That is the one th!lt worries me most. X asked what the fas­ cination was for young people - did they want to hear a rebel? But I was told that he is pursu­ ing the right course."

Ripped apart by war in Leb'anon and elsewhere in the Middle East! Most are children. Others .. are sickly,' aged, handicapped. The rest, are farmers without land, workmen without work. All cling to the shreds of dig·nity. Each seeks a chance to begin anew. A hot meal, a blanket; a tent" a few tools for the bread-winners. school­ ing for the children-:-any .of these can start whole families toward piecing their shattered lives together again.





There are now countless victims from- the con­ tinuing fighting in the Middle East-and the number increases daily. Some have already worked their way out of poverty. Someone cared enough to train them for new jobs, or help school their children, or. piece together scat­ tered families. But some are still huddled in open camps, or town slums, or crowded fn with relatives equally poor. The refugee colonies teem with destitution and a poisonous sense of futility.

.. ..

Through the Holy Father's Pontifical Mission for Palestine, the Catholic Near East Welfare Asso­ , ciation has already mended tens of thousands . of refugee families through edu.cation, new jobs, new housing, medical and orphan care, food, clothing. Any kind of helping hand is eagerly grasped by those eager to help themselves.

Cape man .aids handicapped By Pa* McGowan "The saine Jesus who heard .the cry for recognition from the handicapp~d of Judes imd Sam­ aria 2,000 years ago calls us, his follow~rs, to· embrace our re­ -sponsipility to our own handi­ capped brothers and sisters in the United States." On-e man who has taken seri­ ously those opening words of the 1978 Pastoral Statement of the U.S. C.atholic Bishops on Handi­ capped People is Arthur M. Con­ nelly of St. Francis Xavier par­ ish, Hyannis. The immedi~te past president of the 10,OOO·member Massachu­ setts Associatio[l - for Retarded Citizens, (MARC), he is the

father of 18-y.ear-old David, a student at Dennis-Yarmouth Re. gional High School. When David was born, his parents were told he would be "a vegetable." They didn't agree. Today David is active with the Dennis-Yarmouth baseball team, which presented him with an "Outstanding" .award. He func­ tions well in many other areas, said his father. Growing up, he was helped by an array of...§tate 'and federally financed educational and develop· mental programs fought for by MARC members. But now, his father fears, David and others of the six per­ cent of the state's school popula­ tion estimated to be retarded and in need of services, stand to lose many of. their hard-won gains, due to cuts in human services budgets. A longstanding problem for 'the retarded and their families, ,not properly addressed even in time~ of less austerity thim now, he added, is that of "turning 22." There' are' a few programs for the adult retarded and "what hap­ pens after we die?" is the ques­ tion that haunts parents. The U.S. bishops share these

concerns, noted Connelly. The prelates admitted in their 1978 pastoral' "that at times we have responded to the needs of some of our handicapped people only after circumstances or pUblic opinion have compelled us to do so." To redress such oversights, the bishops have designated minis. try to the handicapped as a "special focus for the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Catholic Confer­ ence." They said their action "repre­ sents a mandate to each office and secretariat . . . to address the concerns ,of handicapped in­ dividuals." ­ Should the bishops be looking for specific ways to express their concerns, Connelly has some suggestions. He' wO\Ald like to see the church "take more leader­ ship in disseminating news on advances and hopes for handi­ capped, people." He also feels that, the moral problems and principles involved in many cases should ,be recognized and studied. , He thinks that churches should be involved in opening group homes for the handicapped, pos­ sibly on the model of the Cana­ diim l'Arche homes, where adult retarded . persons are guaran­

teed a home for life, cared for ' by people who have made a per­ manent commitment to such an apostolate. Locally, ,he pays tribute to the work accomplished by ~he Cape Cod Nazareth Hall school for re­ tarded children. "It provided ser­ vice when no one else did," he said, noting that public school , prograJ11s are now "drying up" government funds -that used to be channe!e~ to the Hyannis school. ' A service Connelly' would like expanded is that of signed Masse~ for the deaf. Occasionally celebrated now on the Cape, he

would like to see them become a regular thing. Those interested in this project. he said" could contact him at 362-2109 or Peter Kirwin, director of Catholic Social Services of Cape Cod, at 771·6771. Kirwin ,is vice-presi­ dent of the Cape MARC chapter, which has some 250 members. Mainly, Connelly would like Catholics to remember words of the late Cardinal Richard Cush­ ing: "The exceptional child gives an exceptional opportunity to commune with Christ."

Draft rejects U.S. nuclear policy

Continued from Page One statement one of .the strongest moral condemnations of nuclear deterrence yet issued by a major church body in the United States. As a first draft, the document is still subject to committee changes based on comments and criticisms by the bishops. Are· vised draft will then be subject to further debate and amend. ment when the country's bishops hold their annual general meet­ ing this November. It would reo quire approval by a two-thirds vote before becoming a national pastoral letter expressing the collective moral guidance of the U.S. hierarchy on war and peace issues today.

It lists six "immediate" princi­ ples applying to the morality of nuclear weapons in the present context: - "Under no circumstances may nuclear weapons or other instruments of mass slaughter be used for the' purpose of destroy­ ing population centers or other predominantly civilian targets." - "We do not perceive any situation in which the deliberate initiation of nuclear warfare, on

doned, even if it "is not intended to be carried out at all," for several reasons. Among these are the "degradation it produces" in relationships between the two sides and the danger of loss of control over events regardless of the original intent. - "Christians and others of goodwill may differ as to wheth­ er nuclear weapons may be em­ ployed under any circum­ stances." But even if a categori.

The key section of the draft calls reliance on nuclear weapons "fundamentally abhorrent." It says they would have "no place" at all in a world of peaceful reo conciliation towards which all people should strive.

Conference At a Conference on Nuclear Disarmament held last Satur­ day in Boston, Bishop Ber­ nardin elaborated on concepts included in the draft version of the bishops' forthcoming pastoral letter on the nuclear arms race. He said American Catholics should make theirs a "peace church," declaring that be­ coming such a church "means shaping the public posftion of the church as an institution and the personal consciences of the members of the com­ munity of the church into a coherent, consistent force for acknowledging and respecting the dignity and rights of all the members of the human family, reversing the arms race and redirecting resources to the human needs of our citizens and the poor of the globe." Archbishop Bernardin said he sees in the church's cap­ acity to create a constituency for peace a uniquely Catholic contribution to the peace· making process In America to­ day. He said that the public con­ cern over the nuclear peril has created what he called an "open moment in the history of the arms race, an oppor· tunity to use ideas, ideals and public sentiments to reverse the race, reduce its dangers and rescue the world from the threat of destruction." Dr. Helen Caldicott warned conference participants that mankind may be afflicted with a fatal illness - nuclear wea­ pons. The president of Physi­ cians for Social Responsibility said the illness was rapidly spreading as more and more nations threatened to join the nuclear club and as the super. powers added to their already superfluous arsenals.

. The two conference leaders In­

sisted that the Collegeville meet· ing was not convened to result in action by the bishops. "Even today as we conclude, we are not indlcating any call to the confer­ ence of bishops to adopt a par­ ticu;lar plan of action or to adopt a corporate stance on any issue," Bishop Malone said. And Archbishop Roach agaJin affirmed the a'im of the 10-day assembly. "'We deal with issues and actions at the annual plen­ ary meetings in Washington. We purposely avoided that format here. Rather we. reflected. And . it worked." He said the bishops feel that meetin·gs on "the Collegeville model would be valuable every three or five years, but could not replace the annual plenary meet­ ings and their format.

Planning for the Collegeyljlle assembly was carried out by a committee headed by Bishop Ma­ lone. ·Preparations included a series of regional and provincial bishops' meetings at which the assembly themes were chosen.

Although no decisions were made dUriing the assembly,· sug­ gestions and proposals by l>ish­ , ops dU1'1ing its course will be com­ piled and sent to aU the bishops.

It seems to m~ that If we have done It, and It makes people happy, there's nothing wrong with It. How can priests act· this way? Is there wnythIng we ean do? (pennsylvania) A. The size of a really ade­ quate answer to your question would be staggering, far byond the scope of this column. Your concern is far too important, however, not to respond to at least in some way. My first reaction to your letter (which was considerably longer than ·the part I quoted) is that your parish is lucky to have the priests you describe. While in­ dividual judgment always enters into music, it sounds as if they know what they're doing. The fact that a musical com­ position sounds passable and that it makes people - choir or con­ gregation - happy, does not by itself make it sacred music. As Pope John Paul said two years ago, "It cannot be said that all music becomes sacred from the fact and at the moment in which it is inserted into the liturgy." The church has very explicit and clear criteria on what music maybe used in liturgy, and also how it should be used. These criteria appear, hi our own time, in the section on sacred music (Chapter 6) of the Constitution on the Liturgy of Vatican Coun­ cilll, and in numerous documents by the U.S. bishops and others. Briefly, any music must meet three tests before It may be used in the Eucharist or other official liturgies. 1. The first is artistic. Of the three tests this is the one most offended against in many par­ ishes. Whether traditional or modem, organ or guitar, choir or folk-group, music does not become appropriate for the litur­ gy simply because the notes hang together and the composers or performers have well-intentioned hearts. 2. Second, music must be litur­

gically correct. That means, among other things, that the mu­ sic must fit the liturgical seasons and feasts, and must give oppor­ tunity for the whole. congrega­ tion to participate in those parts of the Mass which are theirs. A solo "Our Father," for ex­ ample, or a response to the Pre­ face ("Holy, Holy, Holy") sung by a folk group alone, would offend against this requirement: 3 Third, the music must be pastorally appropriate. That doesn't mean it has to be some­ thing the pastor likes, but that it be music which will help this particular congregation, at this particular time, pray and worship God well together. Lots of conc;erns enter here: the musical experience and pro­ ficiency of the people, the econ­ omic, social and family cares they bring to that celebration of the Eucharist, and. so on. Obviously, few parishes meas­ ure up fully to all of these re­ quirements all, or even most, of the time. But as St. Augustine 6nce remarked about liturgical music.-(l,600 years ago - it's no new problem): "Do not allow yourselves to be offended by the imperfect while you strive for the perfect." What can you do? If you're serious about your interest·, get a copy of the booklet, "Music in Catholic worship," published in 1972 by the American Bishops' Committee on t~e Liturgy. A good study of this very readable document is a bare minimum for any competent Catholic musician or music director. It's available from USCC Publications, 1312 Mass. Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005. (There Is a chapter of the Na· tlonal Association of Pastoral Musicians In the Fall River di· ocese.

Hungering for spirituality

By Virginia Finn

By !Dolores R. Leckey

As president of two companies and chairman of the board of a third, ' Jack O'Donnell runs a marathon in his career. But he also runs a spiritual marathon, carefully cultivating a spiritual life. He is intensely committed to both. ,O'Donnell, a layman from Wellesley, Mass., is a technolo­ gist. From childhood, he enjoyed taking things apart. That skill plus his ability in math, physics and chemistry earned him a doc­ torate ,in chemical engineering at MIT. , According to O'Donnell, what Rome is to Catholicism, Boston is to high technology. In Boston, early in his ,c~reer, he' worked on projects such as de­ veloping industrial membr~e units to purify industrial waste­ water. Subsequently, he started three companies in which purpose as ~uch as profit provides the ra­ tionale. If they succeed, the earth should be a little freer of pollu­ tion and hazardous health risks. One company is working on a process for removing sulphur from coal, while another com. pany is developing techniques to destroy toxic organic chemicals in industrial waste. What accounts for the _career ~hoices of a person like O'Donnell? " Coming from a strong religious family, he credits his undergradu­ ate education at the University of Notre Dame for his Christian perspective; He has consistently an deli~erately turned down lucrative career' offers -!luit he feels compromise his conscience. Over the last Ip years, he has reflected seriously arid often on such 'questions as "What talents did God give me and how can I use them?" "What does God want me to do?" "O'Donnell measures his faith journey not by years or places but by the impact of key people who have affected it along the way. His family, he says, "has sought people and places that, have fed our spirit." ' What does a week in O'Don­ nIl's spiritual life look like? It Turn to page thirteen

People are hungry for, bread in many parts of the' world, but , for God's spirit in all parts. This universal hunger can be seen in the variety of spiritual quests witnessed in our age.

Another' view is that spirit­ uality is esoteric, associated with the occult and with psychic \ wonders. Then there are those, who ,equate spiritual wholeness with power, money, improved inter­ personal relations. All these viewpoints have seri­ ous limitations. First, it is important to re-' member that the spiritual life does not belong to the chosen

few. , In their statement on the laity, "Called and Gifted," the U.S. bishops wrote "Lay men and women hear the call to holiness in the very web of their exis­ tence in and through the events of the world, the pluralism of modern living, the complex de-, cisions and conflicting values they must struggle with, the richness and fragility of sexual Turn to page thirteen

Continued from page twelve relationships, the delicate bal­ ance between activity and stjJJ­ ness, presence and privacy, love and loss." Clearly, church teaching situ­ ates the caU to holiness in the midst of ordinary life. Guidance is critical in the prac­ tice of spiritual disciplines. It re­ minds us to heed the warning of the anonymous author of "The Clo.ud Unknowing" who said that individuals embark upon a serious and demanding task when they begin to bring their lives into relationship with God. It is a task that leaves no leeway for self-deception or illusion. How then does one undertake the spiritual journey? The life of Jesus offers the Christian three basic patterns for growth in holiness: - Solltude. From time to time; Jesus withdrew to be total­ ly alone in God's presence. Some degree of solitude ha~ long been recognized as an essential of the creative life, whether it be artis­ tic creativity, creative family living or ministry. An important part of solitude, of course, is prayer, full of our own needs and those of our world. - Intimate Friendshlp. Chris­ tian spirituality demands the sharing of life and .faith, prayer and work with others. Spiritual direction, a one-to-one relation­ ship, is certainly part of this. Small study and prayer groups can also be part of spirituality. Family, neighborhood, parish and workplace - aU can become places of spiritual growth. ....; Publlc Worship. In the gos­ pel accounts of Jesus, public worship takes a vital place. It seeins that participation in a wor­ shipping community is as impor­ tant for Christians as solitary meditation or intimate sharing with one other person. At the same time, we cannot encounter the Jesus of the Scrip­ tures without meeting the Jesus who reconciles, frees and heals. Spiritual strength and power cannot be contained; they over­ flow, touching all who will ac­ cept them. The spiritual life, then, in Christian terms, is a whole life, involving the mind, the body, the spirit, the emotions. The spiritual quest begins now, where we are, in the messiness of ordinary human life.

RUN IFOR THE ROSES . Born in the valley And raised iJ:l the trees Of western Kentucky On wobbly knees With Mama beside you To help you along . You'll soon be a-growing up strong. All the long lazy mornings In pastures of green The sun on your withers The wind in your mane Could never prepare you For what lies ahead The run for the roses so red. And it's run for the roses As fast as you can Your fate is delivered Your moment's at hand It's the chance of a llfetime In a lifetime of ch~ce , And it's high time you joined in the dance It's high time you the dance. . . .From sire to sire It's born in the blood The fire of a mare And the strength' of a stud It's breeding and it's training And it's something ~nknown That'drives you and. carries you home.

Writte~ and-~ung by Dan FOg~l~erg, (c)' 1980 1981 by Hickory ~rove Music; A~inistered by April Music Inc.

DAN FOGELBERG'S "Run for the Roses" describes a young horse preparing to run in the, Kentucky Derby."But a second reading reveals "an additional dimension' of 'the song's message. . The song applies to us as we try to reach. our goals. . 'FogE,!lberg speaks of "a lifetime of chance." But"how rri~ch

does luck guide our: lives? Does succcess -boil down' to meeting the light people at the right time? Are health and happiness in,the hands of fate? . c~ance, People .win contests by meet people by chance and . sometimes . seem to be in just the right. place at jUlit t~e right time. J.... _; .

Yet life does not depend on chance alone. We can make our own luck by working to create opportunities. Those who sit back. and wait for the right mo­ ment may wait a lifetime. But we also cannot say that our lives are totally under our control. A quick glance at a newspaper proves the opposite. We cannot control natural dis­ asters, freak accidents or when and how we will die. If we try to cOI?~rol everything or everyone, the effort will lead to anxiety and fru,stration. Fogelberg mentions "somethin unknown that drives you an carries you home." This. specia inner quality is known by man . names. 'But we might describe it as belief in oneself. Certain periods of life may go smoothly while at other time things seem uncertain. What cah carry us through both periods is the confidence that we can bounce back and even learn from the hard times. , That kind -of confidence de­ . velops when,' in trying some­ _ thing new, we discover more of who'we really are. That does not mean, therefore,' that we should take foolish risks ·or try . out foolish' acts. But neither is winning the "run for the roses" of life achieved through over­ . caution. Christians possess an extra in­ sight called faith, with it, our run for the roses is more than just an effort to attain earthly good fortune. , Sometimes we' get discouraged 'by what happens to us. Luck, we may think, isn't with us. Christians are not immune to human {eelings yet faith widens our perspective, gives us hop a~d expa'nd~ our trust. .
