Unemployment Insurance Poses Schools Problem By Nancy Frazier Catholic legal experts are studying possible responses to a .recent opinion by Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall that lay employees of church-related elementary and 'secondary schools must be enrolled in state unemployment insurance plans. The U.S. Catholic Conference Office of General Counsel, in collaboration with attorneys for v&ri4Jus dioceses around the countty, is expected to decide within a month on the response, which could include court action or attempts to change federal legislation.

SHE'LL BE 96 this month. For an unusual look at nuns, old and young, see page 11.

Marshall issued his 0pl'RlOn that "unemployment insurance coverage for employees of church-related schools is constitutionally permissible" in an April 18 letter to Bishop Thomas C. Kelly, general secretary of the usec and the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. Many CatholiC' educators fear that the new tax could lead to the closing of som,e already financially troubled schools. Although the federal government will pick up 80 percent of the unemployment insurance costs in the first year of participation (1978), Catholic elementary and secondary schools will be required to pay a certain percentage, set by the state, of the income of each lay employee during 1979, if they use the contribution method of payment. For example, a Catholic school in Illinois with 15 lay employees, all making over $6,000, would owe $2,700 to their state's unemployment insurance program next year. That state assesses three percent of the employee's first $6,000 of income. The new tax applies to all lay school employees, full - or part-time. Excluded from the insurance are priests and Religious, and all employees who work exclusively for the church, such as Tum to Page Seven

WASHINGTON (NC) - President Jimmy Carter urged support for his foreign aid bill at a weekly Bible class at the First Baptist Church of Washington and one church official concerned about the bill worries that "it may be that only prayer and faith can save the bill." Leaders of virtually every religious group in America are afraid that Congress will use the "tax revolt" as an excuse to gut - and, some say fearfully, even eliminate - U.S. foreign aid programs. But religious leaders and others backing the $7,352 million appropriations bill are not relying on faith and prayer alone. They are trying to speak in a language Congress is more familiar with, letters from constituents. The U.S. Catholic Conference, the Interreglious Task Force on U.S. Food Policy representing a number of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish organizations, and other groups have all begun asking their constituents to write their congressmen to support the bill due to be voted on the House either July 11 or July 18. Congress' mood "can probably be countered by a show of voter support for the U.S. development assistance program," the Task Force said. A House vote scheduled for the middle of June was pushed back 'by the House leadership which feared it did not have the votes to block substantial cuts in aid levels and restric-

'Slippery Slope' Argument Proved MILAN, Italy (NC) - The worst thing about the legalization of abortion is that when it is legal it becomes accepted, a French Catholic physician said. The physician, Michele Guy, said; "In France now, young women become pregnant to verify that they are fertile and then abort." Dr. Guy, a gynecologist, and her husband, Francois, an eyeear-nose-and-throat specialist, spoke in an interview duing a convention in Milan sPQnsored by the Pauline Fathers' publishing firm to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the encyclical "Humanae Vitae" ("On Human Life"). In that document Pope Paul VI reaffirmed the church's opposition to artificial birth control. Tum to Page Five

tions on aid for certain countries and programs. The most vulnerable part of the bill funds U.S. contributions to international financial institutions such as the World Bank and International Development Association which make loans for development projects in poor nations. The bill's supporters believe pending floor amendments, if passed, could cripple the banks. A broad spectrum of religious groups are trying to stimulate letters from their constituents to their congressmen because congressmen who want to cut the bill argue that California's vote for Proposition 13, a radical property tax reduction, means Americans want to see government spending cut across the board. "While the des;.re of many Americans for tax relief is clear," the Task Force said in a bulletin, "it would be unconscionable to accomplish this at the expense of the hundreds of

millions of persons with incomes of less than $200 annually." The church effort is part of a larger lobbying effort on behalf of the bill by the AFL-CIO, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the League of Women Voters and several human rights organizations. The bill's supporters say the bill approved by the House Appropriations Committee was better than they expected. But, they say, it faces a number of floor amendments which would hurt it badly. Some of these amendments would prohibit the use of U.S. contributions for loans going to Uganda, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Mozambique and Angola or for projects involving palm oil, sugar, citrus, tobacco, grains, oilseeds and steel that would weaken U.S. markets. The U.S. Catholic Conference and others opposing the restrictive amendments say that international development banks Turn to Page Seven

Thousands Attend Amherst Marriage Encounter Meet By Helen Plasse AMHERST, Mass. (NC) "We are not second class. We do not choose the lesser路 of two goods. We have been called by God to be great saints in our marriages and in our family lives," David M. Thomas told an audience of some 400 married couples. The admonition came during one of the 20 talks presented during the Fourth International Worldwide Marriage Encounter convention. The event drew some 18,000 to the sprawling campus of the University of Massachusetts. Thomas, a theologian and a consulting editor to the publication Marriage and Family Living, defined spirituality as "a recognition of the deep presence of God, which is here in our midst." His ideas on family spirituality were among the many tie-ins to the convention theme, "Focus on Family." In addition to the 20 invited speakers the convention featured the exchange of views on evangelization, parents as educators, family rights, the impact of change and family values. Among those who offered advice to couples was Archbishop

Raymond G. Huntharusen of Seattle, Wash., who urged the participants to "let go all the props, let go all the security; let yourself fall totally, heartily in the spirit of Jesus." The Seattle prelate was homilist at the concluding ceremony - a concelebrated Mass in the university football stadium. He told the international assembly that "Christian martiage stands at the center of the Christian mystery. It is not isolated, not closed in." Tum to Page Seven

Serrans Advised on Vocations TORONTO (NC) Young people are asking for the opportunity to make up their own minds on whether they have a vocation to be a priest or sister. And it is up to parents and other adults in the church to communicate in a way that helps rather than hinders a young person's attitude toward a formal religious life. This was the message of Brother Charles St. James of Chicago during a vocations workshop at the annual Serra International convention in Toronto. Brother St. James, a member of the Brothers of Christian Instruction with 26 years of experience working with youth, said adults and parents "do make a difference" in young people's lives. . "Yes, he can influence them to make certain decisions," he said. "!But young people resist and resent the pressure we put on them when we present them with manipulative statements like 'Don't you think you should be . . . ' '~Their answer is, "Yes, but let me decide. Don't push. You've taught me to be independent . . . now give me a chance.' " Brother St. James, who is a member of the U.S. National Catholic Vocation Council, told the largely middle-aged Serrans, "We should be proud and grateful for our young people's independence," Serra, an international organization of Catholic laymen trying to encourage greater vocations, met in Toronto for its

thirty-sixth annual convention. About 1,650 members and their families attended. Brother St. James cautioned his audience to reoognize that there is "some fear, even resentment" in their efforts to encourage vocations. He said: "I've known parents, like yourselves, who wanted to see more young people answer a vocation. But wt~en it comes to them, they often said, 'I don't want to lose my pretty daughter.' "So our comments betray our values and attitudes. Even more important is our non-verbal communications with young people." He cited the case of young people now entering religious life who are resented for "not being molded in the image and likeness we traditionally have of priests and sisters." And, he said, "if the tone of our conversation with young people is consistently negative, we create a distance between ourselves and them which we may not be able to cross later." Parents are models to路 their children, Brother St. James said. If young people hear them "putting down, even if only by implication, the new-style priests and sisters," they are not likely to have a vocation themselves.

themoorin~ Reflections on the Bakke Decision The Bakke decision by the Supreme Court once more focuses national attention on the 'issue of race in American education. Some werle hoping that the justices would render a clear-cut decree on the matter, especially in light of the thorny issues arising from affirmative action. Others were interested in seeing whether the decision would once more restore a balance that might counter the charge of favoritism so often heard in connection with civil rights legislation. The cour:t seemingly appeased both factions while in effect merely keeping the pot simmering on the back burner. The issues of race and edul::ational opportunity, how·, ever, will undoubtedly come before the court again. There are just too many situations causing undue turmoil and tension in our educational institutions. The Bakke situa·· tion was but the tip of the iceberg. For example, reflect on the ramifications of "busing." Think of what busing has and has not done in its legal.. istic attempts to bring racial balance to public educ.ation. In many cities it has increased racial imbalance rather than bringing harmonious equality to the classroom. Yesterday's minority is today's majority in many inner city schools. In these circumstances, when one con·· siders the ideal and the effort that has gone into its nonachievement, busing must be considered a miserabie flop. Recent reports indicate that not only have efforts to achieve racial balance in education been thwarted by busing but that has diminished the effectiveness of the educational process itself. In some schools, more time has been spent on separating warring busing factions among students than in helping them learn to read and write. Given all the areas of concern that must be faced in education, the Bakke decision should be seen as only a part of the whole. Efforts must be made by all sectors of American life to make equal opportunity a reality in aU phases of education for all citi~ens, be they black, yellow, red or white. All of us know in our hearts that the law is not the sole solution to the problems of inequality that still remain in our classrooms. • The issue causing racial imbalance and tensions will never reach lasting solutions by means of the legislative process. Such solutions will be achieved when direction is given to all areas of our life by men and women who realize that racial harmony can only be achieved when we accept one another as one family not of men, but of God. The Bakke case tells us that we still have a long way to go to reach this goal.

The Home of 'Yeritas' Hears the Truth By Thomas B. McDonnell Thomas McDonnell is a member of the staff of the Boston Pilot who also contributes to the Church World, Maine's diocesan newspaper. His columns will appear on an occasional basis in The Anchor. Alexander Solzhenitsyn went to Harvard one June day and stuffed a commencement adress in their ears. I realize this is a crude way to describe such an exalted occasion - I mean the graduation of the Class of '78 from America's oldest and most distinguished university, of course, but that is what Solzhenitsyn did; and it has left the Cambridge-Boston axis in a state of shock. The fact is Solzhenitsyn's remarks were not really directed to the students of the Class of '78. iJ:t was a prophetic act of stuffing it in the ears of the liberal, so-called intellectual community - that is, the kind of liberality of the West that Solzhenitsyn identifies as having all hut destroyed the mind and heart of western civilization. It was an address to the faculty. I saw only the hour-long broadcast of the event on public television, but even in this adumbrated version you could readily see Isaiah the prophet holding forth in Harvard Yard, for God's sake, and the sense of the greatness of the man was something you couldn't mistake for the presence of a mere celebrity. You'd better look long and long at this man, because there is only one of his kind in the world today. I mean this in the sense of the writer, Solzhenitsyn the writer, who speaks in

the voice of someone crying in the wilderness, who has suffered and was there - :wherever freedom has been totally extinguished, and now here, where it has been distorted and abused. After showing fairly good video tapes of Solzhenitsyn giving the commencement address at Harvard, the PBS station offered some commentary to viewers and listeners - as if any commentary at all were necessary. A functionary from the TV station was supposed to be interviewing the New York Times' alleged Russian expert, Harrison Salisbury, but neither one of them was capable of recognizing the significance of what they had just seen and heard. They did what all such knee-jerk functionaries do when confronted with something that confounds them: they· created a category in which they could place Solzhenitsyn and thus dispose of him. In this case, the category was - well, he's a 'moralist,' and so that took care of the prophet Solzhenitsyn once and for all. We won't have to think about him anymore. There are only two outstanding people in media who seem to me capable of interpreting Solzhenitsyn to us after one of his powerful speeches or interviews, and they are William F. Buckley, Jr. and Malcolm Muggeridge. I can hear the facist wing of the liberal establishment screaming now, "Oh them!" But they understand Solzhenitsyn to the very heart and core of his being. I don't believe that half the people at the Harvard graduation knew what Solzhenitsyn was talking about. The Boston Globe demonstrated they didn't

know what Solzhenitsyn was talking about by running a front page headine which said the great Russian writer "Laments West's Darker Side." That wasn't it at all,. for our human nature itself has a darker side. Solzhenitsyn was in fact searingly defining for us the crucial errors of ·the West. Something else. Buckley, a couple of weeks ago, wrote on the nature of eloquence in one of his syndicated newspaper columns. He was replying to James Reston, another of our 20th century's professional naifs, who was wondering in his innocence what had happened to eloquence in our time, and he cited men like Roosevelt, Churchill, and DeGaulle as practitioners of the lost art. "The trouble with the search for eloquence," Buckley wrote, "is that it cannot issue except from telling the truth." This clearly explains, I think, why Lincoln in his noble simplicity was eloquent and Roosevelt in his frequent deviousness was not, and why Churchill was merely grandiloquent. "That is why," Buckley concludes, "the only great elo~ quence in the world today is that of Solzhenitsyn and his fellows; and they are not permitted to speak at the United Nations." It's a wonder that Solzhenitsyn was allowed to speak at Harvard. After all, it's been a rather long tirpe since "Veritas" has meant ~uch of anything to that higher institution of mislearning. OnEl way or another; you must get ~nd read the complete text of the prophet Solzhenitsyn to the Harvardians.

Amb. Lowenstein Dear Editor: I was privileged to hear Ambassador to the United Nations Allard Lowenstein speak in Hyannis a few weeks ago. Ambassador Lowenstein spoke on his efforts and those of others to bring up the long-dormant idea of human rights to the International circle. A good speaker and a realistic observer of world conditions, Lowenstein remarked that what is needed by us today is to admit to one another that we do have problems and to say to one another, "I made a mistake." I thank Ambassador Lowenstein for his timely and urgent message. I also thank him for helping me with my own thoughts concerning our nation. Yes, as a nation we have made a mistake. We made a mistake to think so carelessly of human life. We made a mistake to encourage a civilized society to turn on itself. We made a mistake to think we could be the conscience of doctors. We made a mistake to think that we were helping women to be free, when in fact, we have enslaved them with a loss of self-respect. We made a mistake in our interpretation of the 14th Amendment, knowing fullwell the writers of the Constitution never dreamed we would exclude the very right to life. Somehow the words of Ambassador Lowenstein make a great deal of sense. As a nation striving to be first in human rights, we must be ready to say to one another, we made a mistake. Lee E.

John Haffert, a leading layman in the Blue Army, said that the group tried to buy an airplane for this and future tours. Those plans, too, fell through. But the group managed to lease a DC-8, hire a crew and fit out a chapel in the plane between the first and second-class cabins.

Red Sea - reenacting the Passover in a unique fashion. Usually the pilgrim statue travels around the United states. Kaczmarek former president of Kasmir and Sons plastics manufacturers, places the statue on a purchased first-class plane seat next to his own as he travels from diocese to diocese preaching the message of Fatima. "When I was asked to be the statue's escort," he said, "I refused. Then one day when the statue was within 15 miles of my Michigan home, the official escort fell ill, and I was called on to 'pinch-hit.' "As I preached in a church in Cassidy, Mich., a nurse who did not know me volunteered to care for my invalid mother without payment if I would accompany the statue. "Since that day, nurse Donna Madison has been caring for my



mother 12 hours a day and won't even accept car fare payment from my family," says Kaczmarek. The appearance of Mrs. Madison three years ago convinced Kaczmarec to become the statue's escort - and it was the first of many wonders and cures which he says he has witnessed. "The statue wept tears on our visit to Las Vegas Jan. 8-10 this year," he states. "Ninety-ni~e percent of the cures I've Wlt.nessed are of the spiritual nature, and an additional one percent are physical cures," says the Flint, Mich., native. Kaszmarek said that before he felt the "call" to follow the statue he was tongue-tied and very shy. On this tour, be spoke in a single day at 12 Masses in Bombay alone. Kaczmarek says that the statue, carved out of Brazilian cedar on the direction. of Sister Lucia (lone survivor of the three children who saw Mary at Fatima) is said to change facial expression. Members of the, pilgrimage said that they saw the statue smile in Anchorage, Alaska. The· tour has included stops in Honolulu, in Japan and Korea, in Hong Kong, Thailand, and several cities in India. The pilgrim statue which ended its world tour in Fatima May 13 before it returned to the United States, is booked ahead for two years of visits to parishes. In Rome, Pope Paul VI did not take part in the Fatima ceremonies, but authorized his secretary of state, Cardinal Jean Villot, to send this telegram: "The Holy Father expresses deep happiness over the solemn Marian ceremonies ... He hopes that Romans will continue to show their centuries-old and ardent devotion to Our Lady through ·Christian living, always consistent with the Gospel message."

Are We Playing Games In The Survey Business? lIy REV. ANDREW M. GREELEY

With its characteristic skill for uncovering the amateur and the inept, The National Catholic Reporter recently headlined a new "study" of the priesthood by CORPUS, an organization made up of some (but by no means all) resigned priests. The study is about as reliable as The National Catholic Reporter itself. According to the NCR story, all diocesan priests and all religious order priests doing parish work in the country received copies of the questionnaire. (I

didn't, incidentally.) The r~颅 sponse rate was 16 percent, and there was no follow-up to rah;e that rate. Not surprisingly, the study found that priests favor the ordination of married men, 0)tional celibacy and the retU:'n to the active ministry of married priests. CORPUS issued a statement demanding that bis:lops begin preliminary actions to achieve these goals. Of course, no one is holding his breath until that hapens. The NCR story doesn't mention it, but it would appear that there has been a declir:e in support of optional celibacy sin:e the NaRC study of the priesthood in the beginning of the decade. It would also appear that the clergy is less likely to support the ordination of wor.1:~n than the laity. Funny thing, but

the NCR doesn't mention that either. Now I don't particularly believe either one of these findings, but then I don't believe anything else about the study either. I'm not accusing CORPUS or the NCR of falsifying anything; I'm merely accusing them of not having the slightest idea of how to take a survey. The survey director is described in the NCR article as saying that the results are "extremely valid" because of the size of the response (6,000 priests are about one-sixth of those surveyed) and the similarity of answers from different regions of the country. I'm not sure what the adjective "extremely" adds to "valid," but I do know that neither size of response nor regional distribution of response has anything to do

with validity as this word is used by those whose business it is to do surveys.

.I did not invent either probability statistics or casual modeling, but I must insist that those who have never heard of R. A.

H,ow To M,ci,ke t,he Summer Last ... and Last a,rid Last By


While a few people dislike summer, most complain that it goes too quickly. It's probably because they treasure freedom from schedules, less pressure . . . and, for some, two weeks of preci~us vacation. I read a story once about four families who had an ingenious approach to summer vacation. They rented a large cabin in the

mountains, each family for t\vo of eight consecutive weeks. Eetween them, they had 13 children. At the beginning of the eight weeks all 13 children and O:le set of parents went to the cabin. At the end of those t\Vo weeks, another couple then took their two weeks with the 13 children. All four couples agreed it was an ideal summer. Actually the two weeks in the mountains with the 13 kids were horrible . . . but the other six weeks at home alone were marvelous. ,I .always complain that summer goes too quickly and that story made me realize that I

could probably change that. With a little effort I could make summer seem endless. There are half a dozen kids in my neighborhood who always make the top of my Least Favorite People list. Suppose I were to take those six kids for July and August, giving their parents two months freedom? Thinking of one boy in particular, two hours, not two months, would be all that it would take for me to wish it were September. There are other possibilities: * Hire a maid ... who doesn't start till September. 15. ':' Keep your lawn trimmed with a nail clipper and a ruler,

':' Go back to work . . . in a bakery without air-conditioning. ':' Do absolutely nothing. ':' 'Plan your vacation for October. * Spend the summer' in your teen-ager's room with the stereo going full blast on the latest rock group. * Find a crafts project you absolutely detest. Join a group that meets every day for July and August. . . Actu'ally I'd 'prefer' another plan. For one summer I'd like to do all the things I always plan and never get to. Without having to get anyone out for school, it would be good to read late into the night and sleep

until noon. There should be time for picnics, and swiimming, for visiting museums, for 'visiting friends I don't often see. There should be time just to think, to enjoy the warmth of the weather. There should be time for so mlmy things . . . but unfortunately work gets in the way. I wish my husband and I hadn't let our family develop the bad habit of eating. Summer's . such a beautiful lime, but it lasts only two or three months. I wonder, if we lived in a warmer climate where it was "summer" for six or eight months of the year, whether I'd tire of it. I don't know ... but I'd like to find out.

The Carter Arms Sale Policy By



Last' month was the first llnniversary of President Jimmy Carter's announcement of a new policy to reduce American arms sales. That anniversary, falling on the eve of the United Nations Special Session on Disarmament, offers a fitting time for a review of implementation of that policy. Carter said that in the future arms transfers would be looked upon as " an exceptional foreign policy implement." "In the future," he said," "the burden of persuasion will be on those who favor a particular sale rather than those who oppose it." A year later, the administration and its critics read the same figures in different ways. The administration says that actual arms sales have decreased from $9.3 billion to $8.6 hillion, although a report by the General Accounting Office, a congressional watchdog agency, said the $9.3 billion figure was actually

overstated by $584 million, making the actual decrease $66 million. But Carter exempted arms sales to traditional U.S. allies and sales of technical services from his arms sale ceiling. So during the same year, arms sales to NATO, Japan, Australia and New Zealand increased (rcm $1.3 to $1.5 billion. But the mest dramatic increase came in sales of U.S. technical services, which rose from $900 million to ,$3 billion for countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia. This means that overall arms sales rose from $11.2 billion to $13.2 billion, still well over half the world's arms sales. The institute for Policy Studies, a think tank based in Washington, said, "There have, with few exceptions, been no significant changes in sales to specific regions or countries" and be justifications given for each arms sale are "shorter and more perfunctory than they were under Ford or Nixon. "A Congressional Resear::h Service report released in October of last year concluded t.hat instead of being used as an EXceptional foreign policy instrument , U.S. arms transfers eentinue to occur on a rather reutine basis>

The Institute said the administration's arms policy is "full of gaps and contradictions." "Most recently spokespeople for the administration have argued that congressional and other critics have simply expected too much too soon from President Carter's new policy," the Institute said. "We conclude from this, however, not that we should be pa-tient, but that Congress should resume its efforts to control U.S. arms sale policy in the rection of ::-eal and effective restraint." The State Department marked the first anniversary of the Carter arms sales policy by saying it had refused $1 billion in arms sale requests from 67 countries during the past year. The department acknOWledged that some of the sales would have been refused even before the new policy. Father J..Bryan Hehir, associate secretary for international justice and peace for the U.S. Catholic conference, is somewhat more patient than other administration critics. In recent testimony on defense spending, he commended the administration for its initial efforts and said "it was not to be expected that such a departure could

show immediate results." He said the work of the new Arms Export Control Board "is immensely complicated by domestic pressures, by the momentum of lhe trade itself and by the relatively greater importance 'Of farms exports to the economies of the' United States and France." . Father Hehir has called the arms sale policy "a well-conceived and realistic路 attempt to strike a balance between those arms transfers that seemed clearly in the U.S. interest, for example, to NATO countries and Japan, and those that resulted from high pressure selling (or worse) by sales representatives of U.S. manufacturers or embassy and U.S. military representatives." a~ministration

He said the USCC was particularly concerned about arms sales to authoritarian countries who used their weapons against their own people. But he said that in cases such as arms sales to the Middle East, "the judgment . . . is a more complicated affair, politically and ethically."

"It is not, however," he said, "as clear as it might be that arms sales are no longer being used as a convenient 'implement of foreign' policy.''' He pointed to the sale of $1.2 billion in arms to Iran as "a case in point."

July 18 Rev. Adalbert Szklanny, 1968, St. Patrick, Fall River

"It is obvious that in assessing the political and moral legitimacy of a given case it will be necessary to examine the local, regional and international context in which the sale is made," Father Hehir said.

Question (orner , ?•




Q. In a mixed marriage in which the wedding is to take place in a Protestant church, and the priest has been asked to participate in the ceremony, what is the new ruling on the promise of raising the ebilclren Catholic? (T~.) A. Several years ago, the American bishops agreed on a recommended procedure, which is now followed in most of our coun~. According to that procedure, the Catholic partner in a mixed-religion marriage signs a two-fold statement. In the first, he or she reaf· firms faith in Jesus Christ, and indicates the intention, with God's help, to continue living that faith as a member of _the Catholic church. 'Secondly, the Catholic promises "to do all in my power to share the faith I have received with our children, by having them baptized and reared as Catholic." Notice that these statements add nothing to what the Catholic already believes, presuming, of course, that he or she is knowledgeable about the faith, and is committed to it - a presumption the church makes -yvhen a Catholic comes and re: quests to be married as 'a Catholic. The non-Catholic partner is not asked to sign or promise anything. The priest who is helping the couple arrange for the wedding is required to sign a statement which includes his affirmation that the non-Catholic partner has been informed of this declaration and belief of the Catholic. Normally, the priest will also explain what these beliefs mean to the Catholic, how much beliefs affect the Catholic's life, and then urge the couple to be sure before their marriage that their respective faiths and convictions can. be preserved and. honored in their marriage. This type of procedure is common now in the United States -and elsewhere, and is observed in all mixed-religion marriages, including the situation you de,scribe. Q. The nUDS in our parish:, as most '~nUDS today, no longer wear their veils and habits. But I have seen some sisten recent· ly who have and wear the full religious garb. Why is this? A Protestant friend asked me and I don't know the answer. (Fla.) A. Within rather broad regulations supplied by the church conceming the dress by religious men and women, each order or community has the responsibility of setting its own policies on the matter. Some groups of sisters still adhere to the traditional style habit, or something quite close to it. Others prOVide for considerable flexibility for their members as to color, style, and so forth. Without getting in-

'? •





volved in the wisdom or propriety of the presence or lack of changes, this is at least the reason for the differences you note in the types of dress wom by women in religious orders. Of course, rules conceming dress, no matter how carefully and pmdently drawn up, are not always respected by all sisters - or brothers or priests for that. matter. So it may not be fair to blame everything you see on the whole church, or on the community to which an individual belongs.

The concluding Mass had several hundred concelebrants. Scriptural readings were given in English, French and Spanish, languages used extensively thrOUghout the meeting. Participants were from 34 foreign countries and from throughout the United States. A delegation of French-speaking Canadians, headed by Bishop Adolph E.

Included among foreign guests were couples from Ireland, Australia. the Philippines, Korea, Puerto Rico and several South American countries. Convention participants were united by a common elem,ent all had experienced a Marriage Encounter weekend, a technique for helping couples to communicate and share deep feelings. Worldwide Marriage Encounter, sponsor of the Amherst meeting, is one of the principal branches of the movement, described as "devoted to the ~­ newal of the sacrament of matrimony iIi and for the Catholic Church:' Other denominations have adapted the movement and nine faiths were registered at the convention. Worldwide Matiage Encounter was launched· in ,the late 1960s by Jesuit Father Charles Gallagher, who spoke at the Amherst meeting on evangelization. He challenged. his listeners "to examine how you are going to be evangelists" and recommended that Catholics "leam to spend ourselves most recklessly."

Visitation Ri:ghts By Dr. Jim and Mary Kenny _ Dear Dr. Kenny: YOlJr advice to allow the custodian parent (of ehildren after a divoree)to decide when the other parent can visit is disheartening. People divorce because of incompatibility - if they got' along well, they wouldn't divorce. Consequently, the courts see that the stable development of a cbi1d from a broken home needs the 'reassurance that the absent parent still loves that child. As a divorced, remarried mother of four, I hardly feel justification in depriving my children of contact with their "natural" father good or bad. (Olda.) A.

Values Taught, Caught, He Says ST. LOUIS (NC) - Speakers urged strengthened family ties and the rejection of some cuirent theories and practices the first national Parent Day Convention, sponsored by the National Forum of Catholic Parent Organizations. iNorbertine Father Alfred McBride, executive director of the National Forum of Religious Educators, called on parents to pass five values t~ their children: love; truth, esteem,' fulfillm~nt and spirituality. "They must concentrate on their capacity to love, not to be lovable," he said. "You're not in the 'business of raising teddy bears."

Positive qualities of - love care, concern, respect and responsibility - must be taught, he said: "A verY pernicious educational theory has swept the nation like a black plague over the past 10 years, and that is that values caught, according to Father McBride. He described his recommended technique to overcome deficiencies in self-esteem. "If you treat those children as precious vessels of the Godhead, that's how they will feel about themselves." He encouraged lavish praise to "bring them out of themselves, to make them stretch." Another speaker, SHnor Ford,

a professor at the Fordham University School of Education, said many children today are not learning to read, to write and to add, .. and more importantly, , not loving the Lorc;l Jesus," because they do not feel wanted, cared for or useful. She criticized" American television viewing habits as excessive, and cautioned against the attitude that children should have everything their parents missed in childhood. Children need responsibility, she said. "When we make each kid .in the family feel that the whole family is counting on him, we give him a reason to hope, a reason to live."

upper Peninsula in Michigan, the waterways adjacent to the Great Lakes in states like Wisconsin, and the so-called Catholic line along the Mississippi, stretching all the way from parts of Iowa in the north to St. Louis and finally to New Orleans, is indebted to the Jesuit missionaries. Eventually, the Midwest would be dominated by Catholic immigrants of German extraction, attracted by the' rich farmlands, but originally it was selfless missionaries who settled the area for the Catholic Church. .The California missions are tourist attractions today, but for Turn to Page Thirteen

II Juniper. Serra By Father John J. Castelot California was first settled by the Spanish in the 18th century, under the leadership of heroic Franciscan missionaries. Their leaders, the most heroic of them all, was Fra Junipero Serra. He was born in 1713, in Petra on the Spanish island of Majorca. He became a Franciscan priest and after earning his doctorate in theology was named to the Lullian University faculty. His future seemed assured: a life' of quiet scholarship combined with pastoral work. But when he was 30, he decided to be~ome a missionary. Turn to Page Thirteen


Junipero Serra Continued from Page Twelve He induced one of his students, Francisco Palou, to join him. They landed at Vera Cruz, and from there walked 250 miles to Mexico City. On the last leg of the journey an insect bit Junipero but he paid no attention to it. It became infected Junipero never healed and caused him agonizing pain for the rest of his life. After a period of orientation at the Franciscan Convent of San Fernando, he was sent to the missions in the wild Sierra Gorda country to the north. He learned the Indians' language and labored at their evangelization for over eight years. Then he took charge of the missions in Baja (lower) California. The new inspector general of the Indies, a Christian gentleman named Galvez, visited. He, like Serra, dreamed of claiming Upper California, then unchartered wilderness, for the faith and Spain. The expedition was carefully planned and painfully carried· forth, with Serra and the civil governor, Portola, in command. Eventually, they reached San Diego and established a mission, one which proved extremely troublesome, largely because of the Indians' hostility. But Serra loved them and won them over, at least temporarily. Communications with Mexico were slow and hazardous, but this was just a first step; they were eager to find Monterey. Portola reached it by land, Serra by sea a few days later. Junipero was ecstatic. It was a lovely spot and he made it his headquarters and lost no time in converting the local Indians. Some of the ci~il governors were excellent men; others were thorns in his side. One in particular was quite neurotic and finally Serra went back to Mexico City to explain the situation to the viceroy. When he arrived he was so sick and his leg so ulcerous that they forced him to bed. But not for long; the viceroy. proved to be a man of highest caliber who accepted all of Serra's recommendations and sent a new governor to replace the troublemaker. Serra's devotion to his IIndians was well nigh incredible.

Missioner Continued from Page Twelve presence seen and felt by using volunteers. Every summer, six to eight young men come to Jefferson, not as Catholics, but as concerned friends. They are ready to patch a leaky pipe, haul a load of used clothing to a family in need, or run over the mountain to visit Aunt Hattie, who is old and lonely. By the time the ties of friendship are knotted, the volunteer is recognized as a Catholic, and "Ah, he's not a bad fellow a.t alL" It's the outstretch that enlarges the gateway to understanding and spirituality for thousands of mountain people. It's the extra reach that brings them through the open doors of the church. This is the task Brother Kedley is about, the task of missioners everywhere.

When he learned at Monterey that the San Diego natives had burned the mission and killed, among others, a dear Franciscan friend he begged the governor not to take reprisals. It is impossible to tell in a short space all of Serra's accomplishments. Either personally or through others, he founded missions from San Diego to San Francisco. Age and infirmity caught up with him; the condition of his leg was intolerable and he had contracted an asthmatic condition which made breathing painful. He died quietly at the mission near Monterey-Carmel on Aug. 28, 1784 at 71.

Unchurched Continued from Page Twelve suming visits from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. On Saturday, they gave two hours to the program; on Sunday everyone had a day off. At month's end, the visitors there was an evaluation of the four-week's work. The results? - A little more than half the homes were visited with someone at home; in the other cases either no one was in the house (the callers left a brochure) or the former parishioners had moved. - The missionaries unearthed an abundance of spiritual needs among parishioners. For example, 30 confined persons requested Communion at home; 36 more referred to the church's social service representative; 40 with marriage cases or conscience problems asked for priestly assistance. Feedback from parishioners led to several practical recommendations for the future: - An ongoing, year-round home visitation; - A follow-up to problems or concerns aired by people; - Rotation of Communion calls between priests and sister ministers of the Eucharist to offer shut-ins an opportunity for penance and the anointing of the sick: - More frequent home Eucharists; - Greater awareness of Italian-speaking parishioners; - An occasional Latin Mass; - A parish newsletter to promote communication with the inactive people of St. John's; - Continued parental involvement in the church's sacramental preparation programs. Actual costs amounted to $3,800, money the workers considered well spent.

New Land Continued from Page Twelve the early Franciscans they were outposts for the rooting of the Gospel. The Franciscan strategy was that of St. Paul, setting up a network of Christian communities a day's journey apart. As for the 13 colonies, there was no missionary activity in the strict sense. There simply were not that many Catholics. The priests who came to serve the resident Catholic population possessed technical mission status but their work was one of maintenance more than conversion.

o matrimbnio uma realiza9~0 de amor m~tuo e sobrenatural capaz de gerar compreensao, entre-ajuda, e respeito. No plano de Deus, 0 homem e a mulher unem-se para se completarem. Deus, criando urn e outro com caracterfsticas diferentes na ordem da vida ffsica, espiritual, comunitaria e particularmente familiar, marcava a cada urn a sua actividade propria e complementar. Para al~m da justa compreensao da propria pessoa e da do cenjuge, o segredo da verdadeira uniao matrimonial esta, precisamente, no amor, entendidorecta e globalmente no sentido de Cristo. A propria natureza ca{da, os instinctos e inclina9~es, as taras herediat~rias e contra!das, as solicitayoes fntimas e externas de mais variada especie, as artes, os meios de comunica~ao social, a publicidade e tantos outros factores contribuem com frequencia, para se fazerem monstruosas redu90es do amor, minimizabdo-o, falseando-o ou achincalhando-o. o amor nao uma receita, nem uma tecnoca, nem urn produto de propoganda, validos para todos da mesrna maneira; nem assunto para faceis conversas, momentos de lazer. Nao vern, nem injectado de fora. Nasce na pessoa, da sua constante atitude livre de se doar e querer bern ao outro, atitude que informa e enche toda a vida. Amara e aceitar e querer 0 outro tal como e, na basica e permanente preocupacao de 0 tornar feliz, partilhando aotes e capacidades a todos os nfveis da pr6pria pessoa, do ser e do ter. Leva consigo, portanto, 0 esquecimento e si mesmo, 0 sacrif{cio de si proprio para se debrusar e "perd~.r" na pessoa amada, achando-se tambem, simult~neamente, realizado a outro nivel de comunhao e uniao. A pessoa nao urn ser ultimado, completo, estatico; urn ser humane em constante "fazer-se" at raves do tempo e das mais variadas e inesperadas vicissitudes.

youth ... By Cecilia Belanger



Along with other devotees of NBA basketball I've followed the regular season's play, plus the playoffs, and throughout there were references as to how' religious a particular player was and that he was a member of the Christian Athletes. Some of my friends want to know more about th;s organization. I think what triggered their interest was refere':J.ces to Marvin Webster, center for the Seattle Supersonics, and to Elvin Hayes, the "Big E" of the now world champion Washington Bullets. In haseball there's a story of Cleveland Indian Andre Thornton and how Christ helped him overcome the tragedy of losing his wife and little daughter in an automobile accident. In a letter I received from him he said "we should continue to show our faith and not be ashamed of it." Hardly the words one expects from a ballplayer these days. Andre is in his early 20's. He had his choice between football and baseball and chose the latter. Said his mother was happy about that. He has great respect for his mother. Ar..d how could one be a Christian and not respect one's parents? Kyle Rote Jr., soccer player for the Dallas Tornadoes, in answer to the question, "How does your attitude or philosophy toward violence or unnecessary physical contact fit in with your Christian philosophy of life?" replied: "It fits very well. I respect my opponents no~ only for their ability but for their personhood. Even though I may not know them, I'm concerned about them. 1 don't hate the enemy as an athelete is sometimes progammed. 1 want him ~o have a fulfilling life, but I don't think that beating me is a requisite for him having that fulfilling life. You don't have to give up or slack off to allow another person to feel personal worth. You give all that you have physically and psychologically because you're trying to reach whatever potential you have. And you honestly want others to reach that same fulfi1Iment, whether it be teammates or opponents." Coach Wayne Stagaard, head. football coach at Garden City High in southwestern Kansas, tells it this way: "Before be·· coming a Christian my coaching philosophy was ·based on competition at any cost. Now 1 focus on competition and co.operation." Stagaard's commitment to Christ was a decision that came about through his daughter Sunday Dawn, who weighed 2 pound!! 8 ounces at birth and underwent two major operations fOf curvature of the spine in he,r first fqur years. "I'm the cocky type, said Wayne, "and up until then 1

Once I asked Chri3t to fill the vacuum inside me, I started 11 new life." Several questions were put to Dr. William Beausay, president of the Academy for the Psychology of Sports. A former colle]e football player, he is also a pastor. Q. What should be the Christian's response to violence? A. There's no option. Jesus was not a violent person. The Christian is opposed to violerce in any fonn. Q. Ar.e there certain levels of sport - elementary school r,ge through the pros - at wh .ch violence is most destructive? A. Much worse at the lo\',er levels; less a problem in ':he pros. I have strong feelings about children's sports. Kids should not suffer defeats of a highly organized, pressurized nature in atheletics before the age of 13. 0, a playground with their buddies, fine. There's little there about winning lind los;ng. Their play is generally spontaneous, humorous, and creative, as it should be. The adult approach to kids sports, however, is usually quite intolerable. We do some pathological thing~ to youngsters. The problem is :)arents and coaches. 1 have difficulty with the coaching -;lrofession. Our best coaches an in the colleges and wit'l the 1=ros; basically, with people who don't need them. Our worst coa~hes are with the kids who are 'very dependent on good leadership. The pyramid is just upside down. And at the kid level you get some real animals. Just unbelievable! Unprepared men trying to get kids to do what they . are not capahle of doing and then getting mad at them when they can't." Christian Atheletes have a book of devotions. Contrib~Jting to it are coaches and players from the realms of baseball, basketba.ll, football, hockey, soccer. Here are a few examples: "Almost every athlete has had an unforgettable . competitive experience: making a last-second shot, a great defensive play, or a long touchdown run. Although I'm a basketball coach, my greatest thrill as a player came in football.

"I was a college sophomore battling for a starting position when 1 got an opportunity with the kick-off return team. As the second half began 1 was in the deep left position. Our coach had instructed us to employ the center return with the interior lineman cross-blocking. "I caught the ball on the five and started up the middle. It looked hopeless -a solid mass but 1 plunged of bodies straight ahead. Suddenly delayed timing of -the crossblocks opene~ a ,huge hole. One man touched me as I shot through it and cut left. My roommate threw a great block and then I was all alcne for a TD.

tv, movie news New Film "National Lampoon's Animal House" (Universal) After being expelled, the members of a rowdy fraternity get revenge on the college administration and a riyal fraternity by disrupting a homecoming parade. Too mindless to be satire, too funny to be farce and too snide and vicious to be likeable, "Animal House" tries to pass itself off as an anti-establishment qlovie despite reserving some of its most tasteless jibes for blacks and women, finally, besides being gross and vulgar in a variety of other ways, it exploits sex and nudity. C - Condemned.

Films on TV Tuesday, July 11, 8 p.m. (CBS) "West Side Story" (1961) - The rousing Jerome Robbins' musical with music by Leonard Bernstein is a contemporary, inner-city adaptation of the classic Romeo and Juliet theme, with Richard Beyner and Natalie Wood as Tony and Maria, the star-crossed lovers, set apart ethnically and by their opposing street gang backgrounds. Set in New York's upper West Side, the film captures the grit of life in the city's lower depths with glimmers of hope and elements of tragedy in a delicate balance. The songs and the dance numbers of course. are the selling card, and in terms of its energy and verve, the movie is among the very best. Rita Moreno is the standout here, and won an Academy Award for her performance (one of 10 Oscars given the film). Some of the social issues, relationships and street language, however, require a fairly mature sensibility on the part of the viewer. Morally unobjectionable for adults. Friday, July 14, 8 p.rn. (CBS) - "Scalawag" (1973) - Kirk Douglas (who also makes his debut here as a director) befriends an orphan brother and sister and matches wits and prowness with a gang of pirates over a treasure in gold in this old-fashioned adventure based upon a Robert Louis Stevenson story. Only moderately entertaining, the film

also contains a clumsy attempted rape sequence, played for laughs, that seems utterly out of place in a general audience film. Morally unobjectionable for adults and adolescents. Saturday, July 15, 9 p.m. (CBS) "Fear is the Key" (1973) - .Barry Newman stars as a salvage operator who, by reason of a wild and complex chain of events, finds himself ensconced in an oil baron's palatial home and given the task of dredging up a sunken treasure. A mildly divertbg movie based on a story by Alistair MacLean. Morally unobjectionable for adults and adolescents.

Halt to Uganda Trade Is Asked WASHINGTON (NC) - If you buy a cup of coffee in the Senate cafeteria, you're no l()nger putting money in Idi Amin's pocket. Jay Treadwell, director of the Senate food service, has dropped General Foods, which uses Ugandan coffee, and switched to Colombian coffee. The action is part of a growing boycott of Ugandan coffee by those who charge that U.S. coffee imports from Uganda pay for Amin's dictatorial rule. On the Senate side, Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho), chairman of . the subcommittee on foreign economic policy, has promised to begin hearings on U.S. tradewith Uganc.a, although a date has not been set. Church also said Ugandan coffee farmers are not getting a fair return for their investment and that most profits are taken by the government. Major U.S. buyers of Ugandan coffee are ·Folger's, General Foods, Saks International, Nestles, Coca-Cola, The ACLI Sugar Co. and J. Aron and Co., Church said.

Pro-Abortionists Hit by Bis~op PROVIDENCE, RI. (NC) - A group calling itself the Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights in Rhode Island has drawn are· sponse from Bishop Louis E. Ge~ineau of Providence who exprsssed "fundamental disagreement" with it. The newly formed group is associated with the Washingtonbased Religious Coalition for .Abortion Rights, according to an official of the national group. Formation of the Rhode Island group was announced by the Rev. Beverley Edwards, a chaplalin at Brown University, and the Rev. Wilbur Ziegler, a Methodist pastor. . In a statement released by the Rhode Island group, about 350 signers affirmed their belief in "a woman's right to choose" abortion. Of the signers, at least 59 are Protestant ministers and three are rabbis. Calling themselves "concerned leaders and members of various religious commun~ties," the coalition called abortion "a serious and tragic option," but added, "yet in a broken world, we affirm that there are times when abortion is the most appropriate and loving choice for women and their families." The group also said denial of public funds for abortions "makes it unjustly difficult for some to exercise a moral and legal right." "We want to emphasize that this is not a Protestant-versusCatholic kind of thing,". Mr. Ziegler said. "We've been in touch with Bishop Gelineau and we've discussed our positions in detail. We certainly don't want anything we do here to jeopardize the excellent relationship between the Catholic Church and other churches in the state." Bishop Gel1ineau said in a statement that he had met recently with "some religious leaders of the state who indicated to me their intention to publicly express their views on abortion in the form of a statement to be issued by a group or coalition. "I clearly stated my strong disagreement with the theological reasoning they proposed then, and I reiterate now my fundamental disagreement with the statement," the bishop said. Bishop Gelineau called on Catholics to take a more active role in pro-life efforts, and said, "in order to change the present situation of permissive abortion in our country and reestablish a legal basis for protecting the unborn, efforts to pass a constitutional Human Life amendment must cQntinue."
