Sister Vera's Day

SCHARPER

M,other By Jo-Ann Price NEW YORK (NC) - At the conclusion of the NBC-TV taping of "A Conversation with Mother Teresa of Calcutta," director Jack Dillon emerged from the control room with a glazed look in his eyes. He joined the technicians who flocked around the nun. n seemed Dillon had been so caught up in what Mother Teresa was saying, according to' interviewer Phil J. Scharper, that he had to keep asking himself: "What are you doing? You're supposed to be directing, not listening."

Others in the tough-minded camera crew reacted similarly to the message of the slight, wrinkled, smiling nun in the white sari, as she described her work in relation to the 41st International Eucharistic Congress. Electricians, a cameraman and soundmen-who can sometimes be among God's frozen people when it comes to televising long speeches or endless intetviewssimply melted at her words about Christ, love, death and bread. "God bless you, Mother Teresa," one said. "Pray for us, and

we will remember you," said another. Much of what the 66-year-old founder of the Missionaries of Charity will say during the upcoming show will echo her appeals in behalf of "the poorest of the poor" made before many audiences last spring in the United States and Canada.

MUNICH, GERMANY - Cardinal Julius Doepfner of Munich died suddenly of a heart attack here last Saturday. He was 62. He was made a cardinal in 1958 by Pope John XXIII, while he was bishop of Berlin, and three years later he was appointed to head his present See, whose full name is Munich and Freising.

'Extraordinarily Religious'

National BOSTON - In another so-called 'death with dignity' case, the Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled that treatment may be withheld from a severely retarded, elderly patient dying ,of leukemia. The state high court agreed with a lower court that it is ~ot in the best interests of Joseph Saikewicz, a 67-year-old resident of the Belchertown State School with the mental capability of a three-year-old child,' to receive painful drug treatment that would probably prolong his life from two to six months. '

PRINCETON, N. J. - Findings released by the Gallup organization indicate that Americans are "extraordinarily religious," with 94 percent professing to believe in God and 60 percent in life after death. The figures are contained in a study, ':Religion in America, 1976," which also indicates there could be 10 million more Catholics in the U.S. than shown by official Church figures of 48.8 million. Some observers have criticized these figures, saying that many Catholics do not register in their parishes. Despite a downward trend in religious influence in the 1960's, the study concludes that little evidence路 exists for any large-scale turning away from religion in the past 15 years.

Third World Youth Scholarships Set VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI has established three scholarships to provide youths from the Third World with professional training in Italy. The three scholarships to be known as the Mater et Magistra, Pacem in Teris, and Populorum Progressio grants, after three major papal encyclical letters on social justice, .will enable selected young people engaged in technological and managerial fields in developing countries to study for periods of up to' three months at the International Center for Advanced Technical and

Professsional Training in Turin. The center is run by the Geneva-based United Nations International Labor Organization. The Pope has asked the Pontifical Commission for Justice and Peace and the secretariats of national bishops' conferences to select winners of the scholarships. The first ones will be from English-speaking countries on the African continent. The three young people will be enrolled in a course on the methodology of- training, which begins in January next year.

Letters to the Editor

If Only You Catholics The position of the Bishop of Rome is a unique one in the Church. He is not only the head of the Church - he is its foundation. And this means that the Church rests on him as the Peter of this age. No wonder, then, that when Pope Paul visited the World Council of Churches at Geneva, he set the context of his address to that body with his opening words: I am Peter. He could say no other. By -that statement the Holy Father is true to the Will of Christ Who .established His Church to rise on the foundation of Peter and the successor of Peter. It is sometimes said that this is a stumbling block to the ecumenical movement. Rather, it is a statement of the reality of the matter. The Catholic Church desires the unification of Christendom. But that can never be accomplished unless there is fidelity to the Will of Christ. And this does mean that the Pope is the foundation stone of the' Church by the Will of Christ. This can never be brushed aside. The coin of charity has as its other side truth. Truth demands that there be no watering down of the position of the Pope, while charity demands that no ecumenical discussion take place without this being clearly understood. There have been vicious attacks on the Pope in recent years. He has borne these. with the patience and serenity that reflect his position as the vicar of Christ, the servant Christ, the suffering Christ, the redeeming Christ. The coming weekend, which focuses attention on the Holy Father, is a splentlid occasion to reaffirm, as Bishop Cronin's letter puts it; our unity with him in faith and in charity. The faith of Catholics is the faith of Pope Paul. And he certainly projects to the whole world the image of a man of charity, a charity that every Church .member would do well to emulate - a charity clear and unmistakable that reaches up to God and out to ,neighbor. Mahatma Gandhi once said to a Catholic missioner in India: If only you Catholics were more like your Christ. It could be said also; If only you Catholics were more like your Pop~. o

"The Pope '8 Hobby" It has been three years since Pope Paul opened the gallery of modern art at the Vatican Museum. This has been called, in the language of some, " the Pope's hobby." His interest in modern art is underscored by his address the other day to a group of Americans and Italians meeting in Rome for a seminar on the spiritual inspiration in American art. Voicing sincere respect and warm feelings for the world's artists, the Pope said that they are on the road that leads to God since the artist explores his deepest aspirations; whatever enhances the spirit or raises men's eyes does point him on the road to his Creator. The Pope's presence at the seminar was seen as an unusual gesture. It certainly shows the many sides of the Holy Father. It indicates his wide-ranging interests and his concern for all manners of people and especially for those whose activities and works touch the spiritual dimension of man. And the artists, in turn, were deeply touched that one who carries so many heavy burdens does understand their aspirations and takes the time to give them encouragement and to pQint out the road where their creativity leads.

International Blackmail This example of Third World reaction, together with their re'cent antics at the United Nations, whereby they refused to condemn terrorism, is but a crude and rude case of international blackmail. Americans for the most part realize the honest disposition of peoples who seek independence and self-determination. After all, that is how we got started. However, how can we continue to give full support to Third World countries that refuse to respect the rights and freedoms of the international family? How can we encourage irrational dictators who foster and support international terrorism? How can we continue to play the international game of suicidal roulette?

Reaffirm Oneness Continued from Page One There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and works through all, and is in all. As one body, the Body of Christ, let us reaffirm in our day the leadership bf Peter by prayerfully supporting Pope Paul VI with the obedience of faith. Another aspect of the Holy Father's office is suggested to us today in the Gospel. As Vicar of Christ and Successor of Saint Peter, the Pope must be ready, as were the Lord Jesus and Peter in the Scripture just read, to reach out to the hungry and weak in the Church and the world and to bring them needed nourishment. One in faith with the· Holy Father, we must also be one with him in Christ-like works of charity. Precisely in order that the faithful of the Diocese of Fall River may share in the charitable works of Pope Paul VI, I have the privilege of announcing that next weekend we shall have the annual "Peter Pence" Collection. I pI;ay that your generous response to this Collection will reflect your union in charity with the Chief Shepherd of the Church. I, beg your continued prayers for Pope Paul VI. His office is a weighty burden. May the Lord strengthen him so that he may continue to be that visible source and foundation of unity in faith and charity which the Vicar of Christ has been down through the centuries.

Mother Teresa Continued from Page One program is that Mother Teresa, who will address the hunger for Freedom and Justice symposium at the eucharistic congress along with Archbishop Helder Camara of Olinda and Recife, Brazil, on Aug. 3, will specifically link her work to the "hungers" to b~ discussed at the meeting. To satisfy mankind's hunger for God, for instance, "Jesus made Himself the. bread of life," she said. And at the end of each life, Christians may well be judged by the criterion "I was hungry and you fed me," she added. . With the sensitive prodding of Scharper, editor -of Orbis Books, Mother Teresa discusses many hard-nosed questions. Is she "just another type of social worker?" Is her work "really worth it" or is it just a drop in an ocean of human need? What is meant by giving "until it hurts" and sharing with poor nations? Has the work of her Sisters and the large network of their co-workers made the poor more "visible" to the affluent? What is meant by a "hunger for justice", the "hunger for. understanding", the "hunger for the Spirit?" The show, produced by Doris Ann, flows smoothly from one memorable quotation to another by Mother Teresa: 'Heart of the Church' -"We give the dying tender love and care - everything possible that the rich get for their money, we give them for the love of God." ' -"If people in the. United States do not answer the needs of people . . . they will miss the touch of Christ in their lives. What is given to them is given to share, not to keep." -"If we do not give until it hurts, there is' no meaning to giving." Mother Teresa sees her fastgrowing religious order. as a catalyst, putting the needy in touch with affluent food producers, and the dying in touch with love. In seeking out 46,000 lepers, lonely and misunderstood, she pictures her co-workers as receiving more than they give, freed from a suffocating materialism. To feminists who support the cause of ordination of women to the priesthood as an aspect of the "hunger for justice," Mother Teresa's answer on the· TV show is this: women are the ....heart.... of the Church. Their primary role is one of serving others with love and compassion, in the style of Mary.

Dislikes " Lay Clothes Dear Editor: Enclosed is a clipping from the Catholic paper "Our Sunday Visitor". 'I go along with the Sunday Visitor, which makes a practice of not carrying photographs of priests and Religious who wear lay clothes. My question is, "Who gave permission for this change?

Twofold Reason "The night of Easter is spent in keeping the vigil (perviglia) before the coming of our King and Lord, that the time of His resurrection may not find us sleeping, but awake. The reason for this night is twofold: either because He then received back His life when He suffered, or because He is later to come for judgment at the same hour at which He arose." - St. Isidor, "Etymologies," 6, 17, 17th century.

of Fatima, Knights of the Immaculate and the Association of the Miraculous Medal, I wrote the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI, about the times today and about some of the books I read pertaining to the life of Our Lady and her appearances on earth. His Holiness answered: "Always pray the rosary when you want something from the Blessed Virgin. The Blessed Virgin is the most powerful intercessor in all creation. Pray the rosary, tl}e rosary mysteries are the prayers Our Lady asks for." The rosary is not to be abused. Keep reading about the Blessed Virgin and never stop. Joseph S. Skypeck New Bedford

THE ANCHOR-Diocese of Fall River-Thurs. July 29, 1976

In Coming

Week ROBIN HOOD DELL WEST, with Philadelphia's skyline in the background, will be the site of several By Cliff Foster PHILADELPHIA (NC)-Among other things next week's 41st international Eucharistic Congress in Philadelphia promises to be a celebration of the entire Church in miniature. More than a million people from 100 countries are expected to attend the liturgies and other programs making up the largest single religious event ,in the nation's history. Planning for the Phiadelphia event began in 1973 at the last congress, held in Melbourne, Australia. The U. S. bishops agreed to help underwrite part of the cost during their fall meeting in 1973, despite some objections, and the theme of this year's event, "The Eucharist ahd the Hungers of the Human Family," was chosen by Pope Paul in 1975. With more than 170 news organizations from all over the world signed up to cover the congress, it will undoubtedly become a major media event. Each day's events are clustered about a specific theme: the hunger for God, for bread, for freedom and justice, for the Spirit, for truth, for understanding, for peace, and the hunger for Jesus, the bread of life. The congress will open Aug. 1 at noon at Philadelphia's SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, and will close with a Mass before an expected 250,000. people at John F. Kennedy Stadium. Other sites for congress events are the Spectrum and Veterans Stadium, both near JFK, the Philadelphia Civic Center and the Robin Hood Dell, east and west, two outdoor theaters. Spiritual Renewal During the week there will be more than 50 liturgies; major conferences on hunger, family life, freedom and justice, clergy and Religious, ecumenism, youth ministry, and women and the Eucharist; 700 religious exhibits, an exhibition of liturgical arts' I and 14.different pageants, plays and concerts. The congress itself was pre, ceded by a year-long nationwide program of spiritual renewal, in-

50 Years Ago By Stanley B. Pieza CHICAGO (NC)-More than a million visitors from all over the world showed up. Among them were 12 cardinals, more than 300 archbishops, bishope and abbots, more than 8,000 priests and 8,000 nuns. The occa!!ion for the gathering was the 28th international Eucharistic Congress, held here on the shores of Lake Michigan from June 20-24, 1926. To this day, it is considered the greatest religious demonstration ever held in North America, although it may well be topped by next week's c<lngress in Philadelphia. At the closing ceremony, more than 600,000 men, women and children marched in a three mile procession around the lake at St. Mary's of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, Ill., a subJrb about 40 miles northwest of here. That ceremony, according to James O'Donnell Bennett, Chicago Tribune writer, was "the most colossal prayer meeting song service in the annals of Christendom ... world's records for throng and character have lJeen broken." . The man who brought the 28th Congress to Chicago was Cardinal George Mundelein, who had received the red hat from Pope Pius XI only two years before. Considered an organizational genius, Cardinal Mundelein directed preparations for more than a year before the congress convened. Twenty-five committees of clergy and laity were organized to carry out the plans. There were committees on health, safety, housing and food, transportation, program, finance, processions and pageants among others. The press gave front page treatment to the event, with four to five pages of pictures daily throughout the congress. To get the news from the seminary, 50 pieces of teletype equipment were set up. One company spent $60,000 to bring wires onto the seminary grounds for just one day. Photographers and reporters followed the cardinals every-

Pope Says Art Bears Religious Message VATICAN CITY (NC)-Pope Paul VI told participants- in a seminar on American religious art here that art maintains, even in the modern world, its capacity for carrying a religious message to 路the world. "We are convinced that even today a work of art is a potential vehicle for .the religious message," the Pope told a group conducting a two-day seminar on the influence of religious inspiration on American art. Among those present at the special papal audience was Cardinal Terence Cooke of New York, president of the Committee for Religion and Art in America, who thanked the Pope for the' opportunity of conducting the seminar in the Vatican. Cardinal Cooke's committee was established to find outstanding American art and then find donors to give its selections to the Vatican.

Women's day at Soldiers' Field brought a turnout of 200,000. A choir of 6,000 nuns from all over the country and 3,800 singers from Chicago churches sang. That evening, 200,000 men attended a special service in which 100,000 Holy Name Society members carried candles in procession. More than 175,000 attended students' ceremonies the next day, while a 3,000 voice choir sang. Closing ceremonies at the seminary drew the largest crowds of all. As the great procession made its way on the three mile trek around the lake, a thunder storm developed. Hail fell on canvas and. umbrellas. The pilgrims continued to sing. When the first of the marchers returned to the altar, the sun burst _through the clouds. Cardinal Bonzano held the monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament aloft, and the crowd knelt in adoration.

"What dinner plate?" I asked. Mom Stoutheart picked up 'the New York Times. "It's right here in the paper. The official dinner plate. It's made of sterling silver and it costs $300.00 -also $3.00 for shipping." I grabbed the Times and looked at the full-page ad. "You've got it mixed up.

done almost daily. All in all, it is a quiet period in the garden, when things are sown and we are waiting for results. For that reason I find it a good time to evaluate the garden and to plan for the coming season. Notes are made as to what should 'be moved-in the Fall and where, as well as what should be removed. It is easy to forget plants after they have produced and are quiet in the garden. I for instance have been meaning for three years to remove a poorly situated peony, but I forget it each year until I see it again in bloom in the Spring. Good Checking Time For the beginner this is a good time to check out dead spots in the garden and to plan accordingly for next year. My garden holds together well until early August, and then it begins to wither. With this in mind I have been investing a great deal of my garden money into lilies which bloom in August and have the added advantage of not taking up too much space or appearing too lush. Of course, there are plants for each season and the careful gardener will note the times of year when he must provide for something special. The problem I find is that as the season progresses the garden takes on a busy look and therefore whatever is provided for late season bloom should not add to the already lush look of late Summer. The difficulty for the older garden is normally that there is too much growth and, plans have to be made for thinning and removing unsatisfactory items. This is admittedly difficult. New gardeners tend to think in terms of quantity since they need to fill space, but older gardeners must think in terms of quality and purpose of bloom. Too often we r~fuse to discard a plant because it was expensive or we think it might produce' better next year; unfortunately, next year always seems to come and the plant never improves. We had a very lovely experience last weekend. A French folk group was visiting in our area and we were able to house one of the young performers for three days. She was a lovely young lady named Dominique Roux, 16 years of age and as charming as her native country. While my own children were very excited at the prospect of a visitor coming from another country, they were even more delighted when the visitor and her companions turned out to be a joy in themselves. Dominique's companions were a very talented group of folksingers, dancers and entertainers from across the French countryside and they offered us a glimpse of another land that one

old lady who sang with more vigor than I could ever muster, to our lovely house guest. Jason, who had conversational French in the fifth grade, and who is also very unselfconscious in his manner was at ease immediately witb this darkhaired, blue-eyed charmer. However we all managed, in one way or another, to converse with a little bit of our French and Dominique's English. "It gave me an opportunity to use my French," said Jason. "It was fun trying to undestand her and seeing the unusual instruments that the folk-singers were using." Any exposu're of this type can only make us realize more fully that it's a small world after all and that people are warm and friendly even though their nationality and language may differ from ours.

IITrusting the People : Opportunity in Detroit

Diocesan Legion of Mary To Mark 25th Year

"Trust the people," Jimmy Carter says. How long has it been since a politician built a successful national campaign on this theme? Of course there has been much praise of the decency, productivity, and fighting spirit of the American people, and plenty of promises to re- considerations. The Catholic people will challenge each other spond to their needs, wheth- and their leaders to translate er they know of these needs their commitment to social jusor not. But Carter has done it; he has gone directly to the voters, affirmed their goodness, promised them a government as

By

MSGR. GEORGE G. HIGGINS decent as they are, and he stands within shouting distance of the White House. Carter, a man with an obvious bent for efficiency and order, has promised to open almost all decision-making processes to public scrutiny, to build his program on the popular will, to "give the government of America back to the people of America." A fine bicentennial theme whether it constitutes a serious response to the public issues of our time remains to be seen. One can't help but remember the partisan of Andrew· Jackson who loved his appeals to "the people" but, when the Tennessee general actually invited ordinary people to the inaugural party, his admirer complained to his wife of the "masses of good-for-nothings who tracked mud on the White House carpets." Loving the folks is one thing; sharing power, responsibility, and hors d'oeuvres with them is something 'else. Carter may not be the only one in a bicentennial bind. Two years ago the American Catholic bishops began holding open hearings around the country, inviting ordinary people to express their concerns about the fate of the Church and the nation. The bishops promised to develop a five-year plan of action which would directly respond to the problems raised. To help formulate this plan, some 1,200 official delegates will meet in Detroit in October in the first national assembly of the American Catholic community ever held. Among the delegates will be 75 to 100 bishops and cardinals, eaC'h with one vote.' Given the traditional image of the Church, this "call to action" conference may be even more surprising, and more interesting, than Carter's commitment that the people shall judge. Problems at Detroit The event is not without public significance. The bishops have already confronted Carter on ~he abortion issue; the consultation suggests that the Catholic people have a full agenda of other public issues they think embody serious moral

tice into pastoral policies which embody that commitment and help create a "community of conscience" able to participate effectively in the public dialogue. Yet the biShops will have their problems at Detroit, not unlike those Carter will face if he gets to Washington. The Catholic people who participated in the bicentennial consultation seem to feel that liberty and justice begin at home. They want greater equality in the Church, greater accountability of priests and bishops to the people they serve, more room for personal growth, freedom and responsibility. The bishops' people, like Carter's, are a bit skeptical of rhetorical democracy, somewhat suspicious of authority, rather convinced that only when you have a hand on budgets and personnel will you really get open and responsive lea~ership. So the bishops, like Carter, took some risks in listening to the people. As the ,time for action approaches, the bishops are beginning to learn the lesson of the American Revolution, that self-government rests less on the responsiveness of leaders than on the tough-minded independence of the people themselves because, as the British and the later federalists would learn, no one else could govern them. Sharing respons~bility and power with real persons and groups, and not with "the people" of speeches and slogans, brings less efficiency, much disorder, more than a little conflict and contention. Underneath all our skepticism of both bishops and politicians is a lingering desire to give democracy another try, to begin again. Perhaps the national ele~­ tion will give us another opportunity. Whether that happens or not, we Catholics can give a sign of promise to our fellowAmericans at Detroit in October and in the months that follow.

Lauds Missioners Expelled by Reds VATI€AN CITY ~NC)-Pope Paul VI has praised the "great love" of foreign missionaries expelled recently from 'Southeast Asian countries. Addressing 8,000 people at a general audience here, the Pope said, "The total love shown by these missionaries was taught to them by Jesus Christ Himself." That love, he asserted, gave them the strength to leave lands where for years "they had prayed, taught and worked." In recent months. all foreign missionaries have been expelled from Laos and Cambodia, and many have been expelled from Vietnam.

,Abp. Lefebvre Is Suspended VATICAN CITY ~C)-The Vatican has suspended from his priestly functions retired French Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the traditionalist who refuses to recognize the changes made in the Church by the Second Vatican Council. ' In a note made public July 24, the Vatican termed its action "a painful affair" and said that Archbishop Lefebvre "was forbidden to carry out any function deriving from his Holy Orders. "He cannot celebrate Mass nor administer the sacraments nor preach," the note said. The suspension is apparently the first such drastic action by the Church against a bishop in almost two centuries. The last such suspension, according to knowledgeable sources, involved the famous French statesman TaneyrandBishop Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord. At the beginning of the French Revolution Talleyrand defied the Church when he led French bishops and clergy in taking the oath of Civil Constitution of the Clergy, which supported the laicization of the Church and confiscated its holdings. For this, he was suspended from his priestly and episcopal functions, as is Archbishop Lefebvre -at present.

Love "We pardon in the degree that we love."-La Rochefoucauld

The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 7, 1921, when a priest, a layman and 15 women met ,around a table on which was a statue of Our Lady of Grace, flanked by two lighted· candles . and two vases of flowers. The 17 knelt, invoked the Holy Spirit and prayed the rosary. Today thousands of legion prasidia around the world begin their meetings in the same way. The layman present at that first meeting was Frank Duff, a civil servant and a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The group had met at his suggestion to form a little associa. tion to perform the spiritua'! works of mercy. They began by visiting the sick in a large Dublin hospital. From that beginning the legion spread throughout Dublin, then through the rest of Ireland and the other British Isles. In 1932, when a Eucharistic Congress was held in Dublin, the legion became known to delegates from all parts of the world. They saw a successful lay apostolate with a' simple, attractive organizational structure, 'limited to the spiritual works of mercy. The organization spread through the United States, Can.ada, India, Australia, Africa, Europe and the Spanish-speaking world until today it is active in nearly a thousand dioceses and its prayers are recited in over 60 languages. Its handbook, called the most popular book ever written by an Irishman, is the work of Frank Duff, who is justifiably known as the founder of "the largest body of lay apostles the Church has ever blessed." Ordinary Catholics The Legion of Mary, listed officially as a pious union in the Church, may be defined as an association of Catholics, formed in an army for service in the spiritual warfare which the Church is perpetuaHy waging

SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR: Msgr. Thomas J. Harrington is diocesan spiritual director for the Legion of Mary, in charge of some dozen praesidia in Fairhaven, North Attleboro, Taunton, New Bedford and Fall River. The units include two junior groups. the Church. A legionary must forget himself, his own comforts and desires and concentrate on what he can do for others through the power of the Holy Spirit and the ministering help of Mary. Praesidium membership is open to all Catholic men and women who lead edifying lives and are animated by the legion spirit, or at least desire to foster that spirit in themselves and are willing to fulfill the required duties. Let's listen to the founder of the legion, Frank Duff, describe its members: "Not special souls or unusual types but ordinary Catholics living the everyday life in the world. Its membership comprises the learned and the unlearned, laborers and leisured, the unemployed, widely differing classes, colors, races, including not a few whom the world would consider as primitive or depressed. In a word, it represents typical Catholicism."

Models of the Parish

BY FATHER JOSEPH M. CHAMPLIN

A new pastor or parish administration would do well. to spend several months listening to comments and suggestions from the poople. The input, plus personal observations and other d,ata, will give the leaders a good basis to make some decisions about future trends and practical projects.' However, these people also need to ask themselves a few . questions: Where are we as a congregation? What kind of a parish shQuld we become? How do we reach that ideal? The Vatican II Fathers believed that the parish is a little diocese, just as the diocese is a miniature of the Universal Church.

In the Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People, the laity are encouraged continuously "tQ cultivate the 'feeling for the diocese,' of which the parish is a kind of cell." (Number 10). The Liturgy Constitution also notes: "But as it is impossihle for the bishop a'lways and everywhere to preside over the whole flock in his church, he must of necessity establish groupings of the fait'hful; and, among these, parishes, set up locally under a pastor who takes the place of the bishop, are most important, for in some way they represent the visible Ohurch constituted throughout the world." (Number 42). Our understanding of the Church, then, will color our concept of the diocese which, Tum to Page Thirteen ~~

IN THE DAYS OF PAUL, Steve Landregan writes, those who would add to Christ's demands were called "Judaizers," a name derived from the idea that men must not only answer Christ's call but that they must also observe Jewish Law. (NC Sketch) BY STEVE LANDREGAN

God's free gift Qf salvation through Jesus Christ is so simple that for 2,000 years Christians of various sects have been insisting that perfect Christianity must call for more than Christ asks of all men. In the days of Paul, those who would add to Christ's demands were called Judaizers, a name derived from the fact that they taught that men must not only answer Christ's call to "reform' your lives and believe in the Gospel'~ (Mark I, 15), but that they also must observe Jewish Law, the Law of Moses. In two of his letters, Galatians and Romans, Paul explains his teaching on observance of the Law by Christians. In Galatians the Apostle confronts efforts by Judaizers who were attempting to discredit Paul as an Apostle and accusing him of watering down the Gospel of Jesus Christ to win converts (Gal. I, 10). Paul's repetition of the same teachings in Romans appears to reflect his concern that the Roman community not suffer similar division between its Jewish and Gentile members. The problem has its roots in the Old T.estament. To Israel the Law was the greatest reli-

gious reality, the revealed will of God. So imbued was he with this belief that he found it difficult to think that even with the free gift of Christ's grace, the law could be completely dispensed with. Paul confronts the situati<m head-on in his letter to the Galatians where he writes "a man is not justified by legal observance but by faith in Jesus Christ" (Gal. 2, 15-16), and in Romans with the statement that "we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from observance of the law" (Rom. 3, 28). In his teaching, Paul is careful to explain the place of the law in the plan of salvation. It is holy and good (RQm. 7, 12), a great gift to Israel (Rom. 9, 4), but possesses no power of itself to save man (Rom. 7, 14). It merely points out what sin is (Rom. 3, 20). Sons of God He uses an example easily understood by citizens of the Greco-Roman world, the pedagogue, a slave, whose sole responsihility was to watch over a boy and lead him to and from school while he was still a minor (Gal. 3, 23ft). The Law, in Paul's teaching, was such a guardian; "In other words the Law was our monitor until Christ caine to bring about our justification through faith. But now that faith is here we are no longer in the monitor's charge. Each one of you is a son of God because of your fait!h in Christ Jesus. All of you who have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Him" (Gal. 3, 24-27). But Paul points out that faith does not free the Christian from morality. The moral ideal of the commandments remain, they are exceeded by the commandment

of love which is the fulfillment of the Law. "Owe no debt to anyone' except the debt that binds us to love one another. He who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. The commandments, 'Yoll shall not commit adultery; you shall not murder; you shall not steal; you shall not covet; and any other commandment there may be are all summed up in this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' Love never wrongs the neighbor, hence love is the fulfillment of the law" (Rom. 13, 8-10). Thus, in Paul's teaching on the law the unselfish, undemanding love of God and neighbor set forth but never completely achieved in the Old Testament (Dt. 6, 4-5: Lv. 19, 18) is made possible for Christians, because man, reconciled by the death of Christ, is filled with the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 5, 5ft). "In Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor the lack of it counts for anything; only faith, which expresses itself through love" (Gal. 5, 5). Man's freedom from the law, Paul insists "is not a freedum that gives free rein to the flesh. Out of love, place yourselves at one another's service" (Rom 6, 12). The Christian who lives by the Spirit will not yield to immorality (Gal. 5, 16) but will enjoy the fruits of the spirit, "love, joy, peace, patient endurance, kindness, generosity, faith, mildness and chastity" (Gal. 5, 22). For the Christian the Law is not something e:l{ternal, carved on stone tablets, but is written by the Spirit on his heart (2 Cor. 3, 3) in fulfillment of the promise of God made through Ezekiel (Ez. 36, 26-27).

Models of Parish Continued from Page Twelve in tum affects our approach to the parish. Father Avery Dulles' classic book, "Models of the Church," can be most helpful in this regard. His analysis of five different models gives individuals in leadership roles a framework within which to analyze those "Where?" "What?" and "How?" inquiries. Something of each model should be found in every parish; but the emphasis on this or that model will vary depending on the circumstances. For example, an Inner city parish may concentrate on the herald and servant modelspreaching to the unchurched and allevilating neighborhood poverty. A mobile suburban con4gregation, on the' other hand, could stress the community and sacrament mCldels-quickly welcoming newcomers and developing effective parent programs preparing youngsters for their first sacramental experiences. Visible Sign We can thus, according to Father Dulles' view the parish as: -Institution. Leaders according to this concept would seek to foster in parishioners a sense of tradition, order, loyalty to the Holy Father and closeness to the bishop. SendIng designated persons ~ the chrism Mass so they can pick of the holy sacratal oils is one technique which will underscore the unity between parish and bishop. It also illustrates the congregation's oneness through him with the universal Church. -Community. An administration in view of this model works to build a family or community spirit within the parish, to show each member how we form part of an intimately linked spiritual body. "I am the vine, you are the branches." Occasional introductions at Sunday liturgies, coffee hours after Masses and name tags during study sessions are a few steps which have proven helpful in this process. -Sacrament. This model be-. lieves that the Risen Christ is present in our midst through signs and symbols. The Church thus becomes the visible sign of Jesus' invisihle presence. Attractive vestments, gestures made carefully, baptismal candles and contemporary reconciliation rooms are obvious consequences of this concept which sees Church as a sacrament. -Herald. A biblical, Scripture, Gospel, preaching, teaching Church-those are notions we embrace according to that model. Parish leaders who try to fulfill this ideal will encourage well prepared homilies, comprehensive religious education programs for young and old, and Bible oriented prayer groups. -Servant. This model considers the Church _as a group of people reaching out, trying to make the world a better place in which we live, working to overcome today's injustice and misery. A Thanksgiving Day Mass with food for the poor and a committee for the missions are two possibilities which flow from the servant Church model.

Cross-Section Of Catholics At Meeting WASHINGTON (NC) - Delegates to the Oct. 21-23 "Call to Action" conference in Detroit, sponsored by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops' (NCCB) Committee for the Bicentennial, represent a cross-sec· tion of 'V.S. Catholic Church membership, conference planners here said. 'Fhe ,more than 800 official delegates already registered for the conference include five cardinals, 81 bishops, public officials, high school students, blacks and native Americans. About half the delegates are laity and represent the desired "mix" of minorities and underprivileged, planners said.

'CHRIST GLORIFIED,' a sculpture by Jewish artist Luise Kaish, hangs in a Maryland seminary chapel. Mary Maher says it depicts "a- strong, potent risen Lord who seems to come in a Herculean way from the very material in which it is embedded."

St. Paul Does Create Differences Continued from Page Twelve said, "If a pogrom were here. and someone knocked on my synagogue door,. who would save my sons?" His head dropped and then suddenly focused directly onto his' minister friend. "Lyle would. Lyle would." One felt that the young rabbi had himself long shared some of his friend's harder hours of proclaiming the Gospel. Spiritual Colossus There is in a seminary here in the D. C. area a statue of a strong, potent risen Lord who ·seems to come in a Herculean way from the very material in which it Is embedded. The arms are strong, imaged in Old Testament Mosaic strength and bold courage. Often it has seemed to me that the image is a more spiritual Colossus than an historical Christ. Yet, whatever, it is lovely, big, bold and uncompromising. It is strong and seems incapable of the malice of reducing differences to platitudes by virtue of misplaced piety. It is the work of a Jewish artist. 'Paul did stress that for Christians, the Old Covenant made with Moses had been replaced by Jesus Christ who claimed to inaugurate the New Covenant. There is no way short of distortion to change His claim for purposes of ecumenism. No Jew can accept his claim; no Christian can reject it. So Paul leaves us with Jesus' claim and we face an understandable dilemma. iBut Paul himself warns Christians against showing contempt for Jewish people when he reminds them that they (Christians) are wild branches grafted into the olive tree itself to share its life. "... Remember that you "ACT NOW - Turn spare time into $$$! Be a SANTA's .Demonstrator, earn comi$$lons up to 30% • OR • have a Toy & Gift Party in your home and earn FREE Gifts. Our 29th year!

do not support the root: it is the root that supports you" (11, 18). And he invites his listeners to a ~ove of the Jews, since they are "still loved by God for the sake of their ancestors" (11, 28). The U. S. bishops, in their Nov. 20, 1976 statement, said: "In effect, we find in the Epistle to the Romans (Ch. 9-11) long-neglected passages which help us to construct a new and positive attitude toward' the Jewish people. There is here a task Incumbent on theologians, as yet hardly begun, to explore

the continuing relationship of the Jewish people with God and their spiritual bonds with the New Covenant and the fulfillment of God's plan for both Church and Synagogue." Like Jacob, we may be called to be wounded and healed ·to receive more understanding. We may be caIled upon to be "anawim," the little ones of the Lord of the Hebrew Scripture who were given understandIng because they dared to depend for it beyond themselves.

Plan to Observe Franciscan F'ete ASSISI (NC) - Three thousand Franciscan monks and nuns will gather here in September to inaugurate the celebration of the 750th year since the death of St. Francis of Assisi in 1226. Father Costantino Maria Vincenti, of the Assisi office coordinating the year-long celebration, said the 3,000 Religious will celebrate Mass Sept. 29 in the famed Basilica of St. Francis in this Umbrian hillside town. Other celebrations will follow over the next year, during which the Catholic world will remember the bourgeois boy from Assisi who renounced his worldly position to become Italy's patron saint and the inspirttion for

the worldwide Franciscan Order. The program for the anniversary year will be announced early in Sc;ptember, Father Vincenti said. He added that the inal1gural cerer 'ony on Sept. 29 will be prec . ..led by a meeting here of Franciscan superiors, both male and female, Sept. 21-28. The meeting will include superiors from abroad, and also some nonCatholic heads of Religious orders, he said.

The purpose of the conference, the culmination of 18 months of consultation and preparation, is to develop a five-year social action plan for the U.S. Catholic Church with the goal of achieving "Liberty and Justice for All," the theme of the NCCB bicentennial project. One of the delegates is 56year-old Mary Harper of the Scott, Ark., Economic Oppc-i:unity Agency staff, a Little I )ck diocesan delegate, and a 30-year veteran of the cotton fields, where she started working at age 10. From 41 States She later moonlighted as a domestic servant and school bus driver to support her nine children. She lost another nine children at birth. Resuming her education in middle age, she received her high school certificate in 1971, at the age of 51, and has since earned 59 college credits. Ninety-four of the nation's 176 Catholic dioceses and 70 church organizations, of 100 invited, so far have named official delegates to the October session. In several instances, the bishop chose not to include himself as an official delegate. The early listing shows delegates corning from 41 states and from locations ranging from Alaska to 'the Virgin Islands.

It has also changed the way I relate to other people." Explaining that- he has a "terrible temper," Utley said he finds it easier to control now. "I see the same effect on the other people in the show." The cast seems almost like a family, Utley said, describing the first time they rehearsed thp. Last Supper. "We seemed to be reliving the true experiences. We aU broke down and cried. It wasn't acting any more, and we couldn't help but feel God's presence." Another result of being in the

show for Utley has been increased awareness of the Bible. ",I find myself reading the Bible more," he said. "I'm now learning things I was never told about in school and getting a clearer view of what Christ's life was really like." Utley describes the show as "just like the New Testament but with a 20th-century flair." "Like other shows about Jesus, we are trying to speak in language that people today can understand," the actor said. "It differs from other shows in that it explores what happens today not only to black people but all oppressed people of the world." Further describing the show as a spiritual and political musical, Utley said it tries to emphasize the importance of unity among mankind. Black Roles Needed "The world is our-home and we - all ethnic groups - must take care of it," he said. "We must be true to ourselves and true to each other -1ike Christ." The olay begins with the death of Christ followed by a flashback to the Annunciation. The life of Christ up to the time of His death and resurrection is then seen through the eyes of the mother Mary, the narrator. The show's music is "Gospel" rather than rock, Utley said. Utley was born and raised in Washington, D.C., where he still lives. He spent two years at a parochial school here, attended . Ballou High School and Washington Technical Institute where he majored in advertising and de- sign. During the time he worked at NC News, he took dancing lessons at night. He has also had five years of theater training. Utley said there is a great Turn to Page Fifteen

The hardest thing I've ever done Is keep believing there's someone In this crazy world for me. The way that people come and go Through temporary lives My chance could come And I might never know. I used to say, "No promises, Let's keep it simple." But freedom only helps you say goodbye. It took a while for me to learn That nothing comes for free . The price I've paid is high enough for me. I know I need to be in love I know I'v~ wasted too much time I know I ask perfection Of a quite imperfect world And fool enough to think That's what I'll find So here I am with pockets full of good intentions But none of them will comfort me tonight. And wide awake at 4 A.M. Without a friend in sight, . I'm hanging on a hope . But I'm aU right. Sung by The Carpenters Written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis Š klmo Music 1976, ASCAP Like most of the Carpenters' songs, their latest single touches an experience common ~o all: the need to be in love. The need is universal and perhaps our strongest motivating force. But despite that, it does not always happen easily and the Carpenters help us reflect on the reasons. Our first difficulty is the climate of our age, which sees change as the only constant. With so much designed to be disposable, we get the impression that everything must be temporary, including love. We even build that temporariness into our relationships with, "No promises, let's keep it simpie." Since few things are certain to 1ast, we hate to tie ourselves down to anything in case we should need to let go quickly. This lack of ties we call "freedom." Soon, however, we discover that, "freedom only helps you say goodbye." , If there is nothing to hold you there is no reason to believe that love will last. The singer comes to grips with the problem, even though "it took a whi'le to learn." She discovers "that nothing comes for free." For love to be satisfying and lasting it requires that the lover he willing to pay a price, commitment. Commitments go against the grain in our culture because of the emphasis on temporariness and freedom. Real freedom, however, involves making a choice and this means committing oneself to something. Once the choice is made a person is freed to invest totally in that selection. Hopefully the investment well pays off. But without it there can be no reward. With choice and commitment come real freedom. Without such a choice, a person is merely a slave to indecision and a constant victim of "temporary 'lives." Without such a commitment a person may recognize the "need to be in love" but will never really satisfy it.

Support Continental Walk Members of the Provincial Council of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts, with headquarters in Fairhaven, have passed a resolution supporting the Continental Walk for Disarmament and Social Justice, a coast-to-coast walk designed to call attention to efforts to improve the quality of American life and to express opposition to oppression of minorities and manufacture of armaments. Members of the congregation, which staffs 10 parishes and two institutions in the Fall River diocese were urged to participate in the walk as it passes through the Wareham-New Bedford-Fall River area August 13, 14 and 15. They were further urged to use this opporunity to acquaint those they serve with Church. teaching on war and social justice, and to ask parishioners to join the walk. Cross-Country Journey Although the walk is primarily being accomplished by "links," with members of each participating community walking to the next community, a _ core of some 50 people are making the the entire cross-country journey. Walkers left San Francisco last January and expect to reach Washington, D. C. in October~ Teach-ins, leafleting and demonstrations have been organized along the route by participating communities.

After the show closes here, it could go on to Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston and possibly Broadway, Utley said. He will continue to study dance and theater. According to Utley, the finale of the show, "Lift Every Voice," also known as the Black National Anthem, says a lot about mankind's situation, his own situation and his home and his hope for a better world. His voice trembled as he recited it: "Lift every voice and sing 'Till earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmony of liberty Facing the rising sun of our neW day begun Let us march on to victory."

membership in the Shia minority within the Moslem faith. Most Moslems belong to the Sunni branch of that religion, and the Sunnis, according to Father Labaky, are "fanatical." To further complicate the picture, Bishop Aboujaoude emphasized that "the Lebanese in general - and I can speak for my community - wholeheartedly support the Palestinian cause. Those people are entitled to have • a state of their own," he told NC News. "But the trOUble came when they wanted to solve the Palestinian problem at the expense of Lebanon," he added. Both Bishop Aboujaoude and Father Labky oppose the solution which becomes more and more mentioned as the war, now in its 16th month, drags on: partition. "De facto, there is partitioll now," the bishop said. "But we don't want it. The Maronites Bishop Roland Aboujaoude' have always opposed partition."

Maronite-Rite Bishop Says Strife Not Religious By Thomas J. Barbarle WASHINGTON (NC) - The civil war that has transformed Lebanon from a thriving commercial hation into a chaotic land reeking of gunpowder and death is not a religious war, according to a Lebanese bishop now touring the United States seeking relief funds. "It is not religious in its nature nor in.it9'.origins," said Bishhop Roland Aboujaoude, patriarchal vicar for Maronite Catholics in Lebanon. "But of course there are religious overtones," to the struggle, he added. Bishop Aboujaoude and Father Mansour Labsky, a pastor from Damours, a Christian village, are visiting Maronite-rite parishes throughout the United States, Canada as well as some in Africa, in an attempt to raise funds to deal with a refugee crisis. Both men insisted that the war is between those who wish to see Lebanon continue to· exist as a pluralistic democracy and those seeking the eradication or expulsion from Lebanon of all non-Moslems. Complex Struggle The complex nature of the struggle, they indicated, can be appreciated by considering that

when Syria intervened, it did so on the side of the so-called "Christian rightists," despite a long history of support for the "Palestinian leftists." According to the bishop, that move was prompted by Syrian President Hafez al-Assad's conviction that the Palestinian Moslem opponents of Lebanon's Christians were becoming too powerful - alopg with Assad's
