Vatican hits

Israeli blast

VATICAN CITY (NC) The Vatican reacted sharply Sept. 13 to Israeli criticism of a planned private meeting Sept. 15 or 16 between Pope John Paul II and Vasser Arafat, head of the Pales­ tine Liberation Organization. "Such an outrage to the truth cannot go unanswered," said Vatican press spokesman Father Romeo Panciroli, after an un­ named high Israeli official sug­ gested that the meeting showed papal disregard for the World War II holocaust of Jews and for tens of thousands killed in Leb­ anon because of the PLO pres­ ence there. Plans for the pope and Arafat to meet have evoked a bitter controversy since they were an­ nounced Sept. 10. Israeli government spokesman Dan Meridor said Sept. 12 that

the Israelis would view a papal meeting with the PLO chief "grievously," especially because the pope is "the representative of a moral and spiritual author­ ity." • But a high government official in Jerusalem who asked not to be named used much stronger language to criticize the 'Vatican. "The church, which did not say a word about the massacre of the Jews for six years in Europe and has not had much to say about the killing of Christians for seven years in Lebanon, is now ready to meet a man who committed the killings in Leb­ anon and who wants the de­ struction .of Israel in order to complete the work carried out by the Nazis in Germany," the official said.

WASHINGTON (NC) - The president of the U.S. bishops con­ ference has strongly protested the attacks in Nicaragua against church people and institutions, saying the incidents "have be­ smirched the image of Nicaragua in the international community." "We cannot fail to protest, in the strongest possible terms, the attempted defamation and acts of physical abuse directed at prominent clerics, the inappro­ priate exercise of state control over the commmunications media, including those of the church, the apparent threats to the church's role in education, and, most ominous of all, the increasing tendency of public demonstrations to result in bloody conflict," said a Sept. "9 statement by Archbishop John R. Roach of St. Paul-Minneapolis, president of the National Confer-, ence of Catholic Bi;hops. ' "In recent weeks, institutions and persons of the church, in­ cluding bishops, have been sub­ jected to attacks of a serious, at times dis~racefuI, nature," said Archbishop Roach.

"They have heightened ten­ sions within the country, in­ creased discord, fear and sus­ picion. They have generated 'a conflict between church and state and have besmirched the image of Nicaragua in the inter­ national, community," the arch­ bishop said.

A Matter of Rights According to figures released by our own Diocesan Department of Education almost eleven· thousand children have entered diocesan classrooms this week. This figure indicates that there has been an increase of about 300 students from last year. From all reports, this, increase would indeed be greater, if there- were more seats available in our schools. This is especially true on the high school level where there are entra!lce waiting lists in many schools and also on the lower grade level. At the present time, the nation is experiencing a mini baby boom. Schools tha;1 have nursery and kindergarten grade levels are under great enrollment pressure. Considering the number of parents seeking ad­ mission to parochial schools on these levels, it seems that " grammar school seats will be filled for a few years to come. Young parents today have education goals and objec­ tives quite different from that of even ten years' ago. A mere surface survey indicates they want to restore "values" to life and living. Having been raised as children in the chaos and charades of the sixties, they seek to establish in their family lives stability, morality and responsibility. They view the parochial school as a basic means to ensure value learning for their children. They also consider this means of educational development as their right. They ate worried that they will not be able to exercise this right. The entire question of rights is critical to our world of education. There are many who view catholic, parochial or private education merely as an alternative fonn of learning. Certai~ly, there are people who want to send their children to a parochial school because they don't want them to face " some of the difficulties that are admittedly present in public education. This attitude is a, weak and insecure base on which to build the case for alternative education. ' Parents who choose to send their children to a paro­ chial or private school regard their choice as a natural right. This sentiment is-corroborated by the Fathers of Vatican II. ' In their declarization on education they state that all men' of whatever race, condition or age in virtue of ther dignity as human persons have an inalienable right to education.'l They also reflected "Parents should enjoy the fullest liberty in their choice of schools." "The public authority; therefore, whose duty it is to protect ana defend the liberty of citi­ zens is bound according to the principle of distributive· justice to en~ure that 'publicI subsidies to schools are so allocated that parents are truly free to select schools for their children in accordance with their consicience . ." In a few weeks this entire question will be pl~c~d on our state ballots. In November, parents who send their children to parochial schools will have an opportunity to express themselves in this manner via the ballot box. Friends of parochial and private education will likewise be given the same chance. . yve urged all citizens and all peoples regardless of relIgIOUS preference who value the democr.atic process to j0?t in this expression'of human rights and take away the stigma of second cla$s citizenship that exists when one chooses to exercise a constitutional privilege. As November approaches, lets not forget it really is a matter of rights and freedoms. '

Kalb has been covering this story for more than eight months. "When you spend so much time on a major effort, a program that could make a lot of waves, you have to ask your­ self, 'Why am I doing it?' For me, the attack on the pope was too much. It was the kind of act that has to be considered beyond the pale." He continued: "The world is such a cockeyed place that there have to be certain institutions, certain representatives of peace and good will, beyond the strike of the terrorists. Yet the pope still remains a terribly vulnerable figure because he insists on gqing to the people." ,Viewers will have to judge for themselves how strong a case the NBC White Paper makes in implicating the Kremlin in Ag· ca's attempt at assassination. As for Kalb, he concluded, "I am immensely proud of this program and so are all my colleagues who , worked on it."

How to 'ditch

"They ditched me," he door slamming, arm' wrestling, sobbed, his hot little face and wheelie-popping. But it's a pyrrhic victory because bearing unmute evidence of usually even if the youngest wins he an heroic attempt at keep­ loses because his brotlter wants

ing up with his older brothers and sisters. His short legs just couldn't do the job and he soon, found himself alone as his sib­ lings chuckled their way to the store without him. His little chest began to beat more smoothly as he rested but his shoulders shook and he cried, "I wanta go too. Why can't I go? Why do they always ditch me?" How to answer that question. Should I tell him that ditching is a time-honored family sport, the prize going to the oldest, the fastest and the sleekest? Or go into the reasons a successful ditch is so satisfying to an older sibling - a get-even for having to "watch" the little kids, a flex­ ing of superiority or maybe just a chance to break the routine? Ditching is even more attrac­ tive when a parent specifically instructs an older child to keep an eye on a younger. Has there ever been a parent who hasn't heard a righteous ditcher say in defense, "But I did keep my eye on him. I could see him all the time from inside the bush. He just couldn't see me." Every family has its ditchers and ditchees. Ditchers tend to be the oldest but not always. Once in a rare while a cunning younger sibling can outditch an older. Then the game can become seri­ ous, with face-saving challenges thrown in to test superiority in other family sports like foot-in­

to get rid of him anyway.

Impatiens really isn't



As painful as the ditching pro­ cess is, I believe it prepares us

for later life when knowing some ditching techniques helps. Adolescents use ditching skills honed to perfection in childhood to ditch parents later on when the worst ignominy possible is being seen with them. We have one we call the Silver Streak who, after Mass, snakes his way to the car to avoid having to stop and talk with parents' friends. Apostolic community ex­ tends only so far. Pre-adoles­ cents 'use the same technique when their radar tells them there's a game room within a half-mile radius.

Ditching unwelcome admirers at a dance, game or concert is a valuable talent among young people. Ditching a group with values one suddenly realizes don't match one's own is im­ measurably easier if one has practiced on younger siblings. A quick turn here, a pause there, an attachment to a foreign group usually does it, followed by an apologetic explanation later, "I'm sorry I got separated from you." Adults ditch, too. For me, the art reaches its highest form in the supermarket a half hour be­ fore dinner when I spot an ac­ quaintance I haven't seen in two years. My cart turns on a dime and I march to a different aisle, suspecting all the while she's doing the same to avoid seeing me. Men ditch by not seeing. When they're in a hurry, they stare their way through a crowd, pre­ tending preoccupation and pro­ fundity. It usually works. All of us ditch, whether it's to avoid petition signers or back slappers. That's why parents don't get too upset when children ditch each other. Although it causes pain when one is little and berefit, ditching is part of growing up.

Family Night

A weekly at-home program for families

sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Family Ministry

OPENING PRAYER Gentle Lord, school once again is in session and our fam­ ily has begun a different rhythm. What a gift it is, Lord, to con­ tinue to learn and grow. Thank you for this time together to learn and grow as a family. Amen.

TO THINK ABOUT Now that school has begun most of us think it's time again to start learning. What wild non­ sense, because really everything we say and do involves learning. This Family Night, let's take a look at some of the ways we all learn and grow, especially at home.

ACTIVITY IDEAS Young Families On a large piece of paper, draw a diagram of the house or apart­ m~nt. Together go from room to room and write down on the dia­ gram all the things the family learns in each room. Be sure to cover phYsical, social, and spirit­ ual matters. Tape the diagram on the kitchen cupboards for all

to be reminded of the richness of learning in the home.

Middle Years Families Share some thoughts about how family members help each other grow and learn. Let each family member write a short love note to each of the other' family members, specifically expressing thanks for a way he or she was helped to learn and grow. Place the letters in a large bowl and open a letter and read it aloud at each meal.



Share some thoughts on: 1. What is the most worth­ while thing I have learned in, my life? Why? 2. What person has taught me the most? Share a memory about that person. 3. Learning to me means . . .

SNACK TIME Fresh fruit and hot spiced tea.

ENTERTAINMENT MIND CHALLENGE Place ten objects on a tray. Place it in the center of a table for 30 seconds, then remove. Take away two things and return the tray to the table for 15 seconds. Have each family member list what objects are missing. Repeat until all the objects are gone. Then bring back the tray with all 10 objects. See who listed the most correct­ ly. Award him or her a paper button entitled "Supe, Mind."

SHARING - Share a funny experience from the past week. - Each share a moment he or she felt hassled. - Share a time someone felt close to God.


Dearest Lord, thank you for this Family Night and for our beautiful family. Bless our teach­ ers at home, at work, at school, and at play. Help us to do one special thing this week for some­ one else, Amen.

effective and profound social re­ newal," the Vatican official said. In a message to the congress on behalf of Pope John Paul, Cardinal Agostino.Casaroli, papal secretary of state, urged various natural family planning organ­ izations to "joil1 forces? Tn order to avoid 'criticism because of in­ ternal squabbles. ' "The churcq's doctrine is. not identified with any of the meth­ .ods in particular," h~ said. "Scientific understanding alone is not enough," Cardinal Casaroli added. "To it must be added the ethical, motivation and the personal capacity to put it into practice which is possible only when there is a deep spirit­ ual life nourished by the divine word and by the sacraments." Doctors John and Evelyn Bill­ ings, developers of the Billings method of natural family plan­ ning, brought congress partici­ pants up to date on research supporting their techniques, while Professor Jero·me Lejeune,' discoverer of the cause of Down's syndrome, discussed pre­ vention of mental deficiencies. As well as by luminaries such as Father Bruce Ritter of Coven­ ant House, author Walker Percy,. Rep. Henry Hyde, Mother An­ gelica of the Eternal Word Tele­ vision Network and Sir William Liley, a pioneer in parental physi­ . ology, Sister Lucille was. im­ pressed by 19-year-old, Gloria Soledad Diclo, a medical student and natural family planning teacher from the Dominican Republic who gave delegates a "power-packed talk" on youth as leaders of youth. In that connection Sister Lu­ cille noted that the youth to youth method is in successful use in Mexico where young peo­ ple are teaching each other na­ tural family techniques. "Once again," she concluded, "the Lord has showered me with . his graces, for truly this Con­ gress was another beautiful privilege to meet again all my friends teaching Billings all over the world.

tion of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

"We now desire as a continua­

tion of the thought of our pre­ decessors, to strongly recom­

mend the recitation of the family rosary."

Over the years, said Amaral,

the Men of the Sacred Hearts have brought their statues into hundreds of English and Portu­

guese-speaking homes. They do not seek donations but any offer­

ings made are given to such

causes as the diocesan Ecclesias­

tical Students' Fund and the Rose Howthorne Lathrop Home. Some 16 men are active group members, said Amaral. They

meet at St. Elizabeth's Church, Fall River, where Father Jorge de J. Souza, pastor, is their chaplain. Amaral has a message for Fall Riverites who have not as yet

been reached by his special apos­ tolate: "If the men come to your

home, welcome the gift they

want to leave: an awareness of

the love of the hearts of Jesus ,and Mary."

Bishop Connolly High School who have for years done one-on­ one tutoring of Nazareth young­ sters, at the same time uncon­ sciously acting as peer group role models. Nazareth has invisible as well as visible functions. Over the years the schools have become spiritual powerhouses, receiving almost daily requests from di­ ocesan residents for their some­ times spookily e!!'acious pray­ ers. Once the children were asked at 12:15 p.m. to pray for the happy death of a hopelessly ill and suffering man. "At 12:25," related Sister Maureen Ha,nley, then the Fall River principal, "we received a call: (He's gone to God, thank you.' " On another occasion a priest requested prayer~ for a hospital patient who refused to see him. On his next hospital visit he was, passing the door of the patient when he was beckoned in. "He w'ants to':see you now, Father," a family member whig': ,pered. And Nazareth children could give lessons to many on the subject of brotherhood. The school, said Sister Maureen Han­ ley, had just accepted its first black child when a pupil who had never seen a black rushed up to her. "Hey Sister," he shouted, "doesn't Billy look beautiful in that color?"

I can't cut back on my job, but I can't do both. Do you think men should help at home? My husband respects your_ col­ umn. Please say. (pennsylvania) What I think may not be that· important. It is more important what you and your husband think. Married partners must work out their own personal style of living and division of labor. You clearly have a disagree­ ment about how the work should be divided. .Keep talking with each other. Tell your husband what you can and cannot do, but do not make judgments about what he should be doing. Listen to his opinions and his feelings and see if you can arrive at some compromise. Several points raised or im­

spouses m~y stem, in part, from their lack of required knowledge and skills. So break the home­ making job· down into its com­ ponent parts and let your hus­ band begin with the easier tasks. Having been a housespouse myself for a period, I would rate homemaking tasks as follows,· from easiest to hardest. Like any beginning employee, men home­ maker husbands should start at the bottom. 1.

Out of all this emerged a vis­ ion of a church determined to be present to current needs and to­ day's people: a church' in the modern world.

without losing its soul. A guiding principle of govern­ ment for Pope John was "See everything. Correct a little. For­ get the rest." This shrewd approach grew out of years of experience.

The church in the world By Katherine Bird

"The joys and the. hopes, the griefs and the anxieties of the men of this age, especially those who are poor or in any way) af­ flicted, these too are the joys and hopes, the griefs ~ anxieties of the followers of ChrlsL" ("Con~ . sttultion on the Church in the Modem World," Vatican Council II.)

Over the years, Jesuit Father Donald Campion has turned to the words above time and again because he finds them so "re­ warding to mull over." As individuals, he explained, we tend to be preoccupied with our own concerns when we "need to be more and more aware of the fears and problems" that confront so many in today's world. A journalist who covered the Second Vatican Council, Father Campion said it was "hard not to feel the excitement of the event - - the sheer spectacle of 2,500 bishops" debating issues no council had ever before ad­ dressed. Cardinal Giovanni Monfini (the future Pope Paul VI), and Car­ dinal Leo Suenens of Belgium sounded the call for the docu­ ment that became "The Consti­ tution on the Church in the Mod­ ern World," the priest com­ mented. In speeches at the close of the council's first session, the two cardinals "took a forward look

at where the council should go" and pressed for a more system­ atic approach to the problems of Christians ill this compl~x modern world. In the background was the knowledge that Pope John XXIII was dying. . At the same time, the idea of taking up such "unprecedented" topics as those to be covered in. the document on the church in the 'modern world caused con­ troversy. However, the council fathers agreed to tackle the topic. Asked what tipped the scales, the Jesuit replied, "There was a broad feeling that the church couldn't avoid" issues such as social and economic conditions, the family, war and peace, the place of various ethnic traditions if she "wanted to be an instrum­ ent of God in the world." In addition, Father Campion said, the encyclic:;als of Popes ,Leo XIII and Pius XII had paved the road' as had Pope, John XXIII's "Pacem in Terris," pub­ lished between the first and sec­ ond sessions of the Second Vati-· can Council. In Father Campion's view, Pope John Paul II, who had a hand in drafting the "Constitu-, tion on the Church in the Mod­ ern World" is showing its "con­ tinuing benefit" for the church today. In his encyclicals, the pope's arguments on work, jus-' tice and human rights often echo themes from the Vatican II docu­ ment, the Jesuit added.

An active and dedicated laity has been central to this effort - appropriately so when one reflects that Vatican II was the first church council to concern itself so much with lay people. And what are the results? - Lay persons are more ac­ tively engaged in lay ministries; they take roles in the church's worship and work on their own spiritual development. - Clergy and laity have entered into new relationships, respecting each others' responsi­ bilities and competencies. - New efforts to develop Christian community have emerged, and lay' persons are

archbishop and appointed him papal ambassador to Bulgaria. In this post, he developed new diplomatic skills. But his 10 Bulgarian years were lonely. He was in an alien culture, in a minor post. He felt passed over, ignored and, per­ haps, not appreciated. He did not dwell on self-pity, but made his Bulgarian period a time in which his faith deepened and matured. Then he was appointed apos­

tolic delegate to Turkey. If Bul­ garia had nourished his under· standing of Eastern Europe, Turkey instructed him in the values of Orthodoxy and Islam. Next, at age 65, when most men are retiring, Archbishop Ron­ calli was named papal nudcio to Paris, where his assignment was to reconcile church divisions dating from World War II. The artist of administration, organization and diplomacy soon proved himself deft as a recon­ ciler. His religious fait~ was as contagious as his genial nature. The pope made him a cardinal.

He has grown up in Nazareth, played in its streets. Furthermore, before he left Nazareth, Jesus was an ordinary artisan. His family was not es­ pecially distinguished; and it was known to everyone in town. Mark's designation of Jesus

as the "son of Mary" is most un· usual. A man was always identi· fied as the son of his father. ' The most natural explanation is that, by this time, Mary was a widow. Mark gives no hint that he knew, of 'the virginal con­ ception, and even if he did, it is most unlikely 'that Jesus' people would have. The "brothers and sisters" that Mark mentions are in all likelihood Jesus' cousins - the usual biblical way of indicating such relationships. Two "broth­ ers" are later identified as sons of another Mary, one of the wo­ men at Calvary. In any event, the townspeople found Jesus too much for them, literally. "They were scandal­ ized by him," which means that his ordinariness was a stumbling block preventing them from arriving at the truth about him. "Their lack of faith distressed" Jesus and so he performed no miracles there, as he normally demanded faith as a prerequisite for such favors. Instead, he, reo marked sadly, quoting a familiar proverb: "No prophet is without honor except in his native place."

I just asked your disciples to drive out that evil spirit but they were unable to do so." Josiah and the other disciples wondered what Jesus was think­ ing about them. They did not like him to know they could not help the suffering boy.

"What an unbelieving lot you are!" Jesus sighed. "How long can I endure you? Bring the boy to me." Just then the evil spirit threw the j)oy into conVUlsions. He rolled on the ground, foaming at the mouth. "How long has this been happening to him?" Jesus asked. "From childhood," the boy's (ather replied. "Often it throws him into fire and water. You would think it would kill him. If you can help us, please do!" "If you can?" Jesus repeated the man's words. "Everything is possible to a man who trusts." He turned to the boy. In a fim voice, he said: "Mute and deaf spirit, I command you: Get - out of him and never enter him again!" . The evil spirit threw the boy into convulsions once again then, with a loud shout, left the boy. He lay on the gr.ound as still as a corpse but Jesus took his hand and helped him to his feet. The crowds were awed as the boy stood smiling before them. Later the disciples asked Jesus privately, "Why couldn't we drive out the dreadful spirit?" "This kind you can drive out only by prayer," Jesus told them. Josiah never forgot Jesus's words.

'Conscience' clause' binds hospitals MILWAUKEE (NC) - "Vitri­ olic pro-lifers" may cause a cur-, tailment of Catholic witness in the health field, according to Jack Curley, executive director of the Catholic Health Associa­ tion. Though he was not specific, Curley said in a keynote address to the Milwa~kee convention of the National Association of Chaplains that 12 Catholic hospi­ tals are being threatened by the "radicalized" issue of abortion. The basic cause of friction be" tween Catholic hospitals and pro-life groups is the hospital's having physicians on their staffs who perform abortions in their private practices, Curley said.

For children

A "terrible polarization" exists between those who believe unions should receive encourage. ment, and others so opposed to them that "they would run over a labor organizer." As a church-related -organiza­ tion, said Curley, the CHA must recognize the employee's right to organize and strike. But it must also consider the .right that people have to health care. ' "There are no easy answers, but we've begun to ask the right questions," said Curley. In respect to allocation' of "scarce" resources, he said that in health care this Cfould mean deciding who will receive specie fic types of treatment. The final answer will rest in the public policy forum, where the Catholic witness must be made visible. Curley advised chaplains to demand more attention for the elderly. Noting the emphasis placed on baptism, confirmation and matrimony, he characterized spiritual and sacramental care for older persons as "fragment­ ed." An expanded ministry to the elderly is, he said, "a marvel­ ous witness opportunity."

- The laity's prayer, study and action have been stretched and strengthened. Ninety-eight percent of the church's laity are principally engaged in the secu­ lar arenas of work, family, neigh­ borhoods, politics. The work of the council continues as they seek ways of following Christ in their own lifestyles. Pope John XXIII died during

the council and was succeeded

by Pope Paul VI. As Pope John had opened this global gathering, so Pope Paul closed it, expressing appreciation and enc9uragement to various groups, including workers, art­ ists, philosophers, scientists and youth. Perhaps as we move through the '80s as people of faith and action, we,· might reread the council documents and be re-in. spired to "build in enthusiasm a better world."

summer were donated to her .. " ." parish. It st~rted ~ one Suh~ay when Father Morgan Rowsome, pastor. of San Martin de Porres, called on parishioners to give some­ thing in service to the ·church. "Father Rowsome said some can't give money, but they can give time and talent," said Miss Rendon. "So I asked him if I could put on a dance workshop to give my time and talent." Father Rowsome agreed. And Miss Rendon, a high school sen­ ior, had her work cut out for her when over 100 girls in leotards showed up in the parish hall for the first practice. "I thought I'd be lucky to get 20 girls, so when 100 were there wilting for me I was shocked," said Miss Rendon, who has taken dance lessons since age 3 with well-known Laredo dancer Syl­ via Zuniga. But a little advice from her father, a third degree black belt karate teacher, saw her through the many rehearsals that follow­ ed. He told her to "keep cool and have discipline," and apparently it worked. "She has something God gave her," said her mother, a former comedy dancer in Laredo. "She is very gifted with children. They are attracted to her like a mag. I net." Miss Rendon and her young troupe. performed a 22-number recital Aug. 15 to a near·capacity crowd in the Laredo Civic Cen­ ter, which seats around 2,000. The program featured jazz, bal­ let, gymnastics, modeling, coun­ try·western and classical danc· ing. Between revenues earned from the classes -- $5 for parish· ioners, $10 for others - pro­ grams and the recital, Miss Ren­ don and her dancers raised over $~,OOO for the parish this sum­ mer. Miss Rendon choreographed the entire performance and danced five numbers' herself, something that is easier than waiting in th.e wings, she said. Miss Rendon is no stranger to the stage. She has been doing recitals since the seventh grade.
