ARTS BROWSING We're All Specialists "ANNOUNCING CHRIST," by Rev. Francois Varillon, New- man Press, 503 pp., $6.95 OTH this book, and the bne following, are of particular interest to the appropriate spe- cialist. However, both of these books are important. Each, in its own area is a meaninRful contribution to Christian per- ception, and appreciation. Their influence should be felt on all levels. In "Announcing Christ," we again behold that wonderful di- chotomy of God's Church, the beautiful seeming contradiction wherein the simple is so pro- found that the depths will nev- er be adequately plumbed by  living man, and the profound is so simple that a child might grasp, with great facility, the fundamental question of cre- ation and salvation. Father Varillon writes with much profundity and sagac- ity. He presents the unfold- ing of salvation history to that pinpoint in time, the death and resurrection of i Christ and the establishment IW of God's Holy Church. That pinpoint in earthly time that forever changes the face of our eternity. This is hardly an original story, but it is a history that can never bear enough repeat- ing. This is especially true when theologians of this auth- or's talent apply their genius to a discussion of the most im- portant fact in history. He begins at the beginning: "Man is a religious animal. He has been. always Despite appearances to the contrary, he still is." From this point we are brought forward through time and philosophy, via the in- spired word of God. The book has the subtitle "Through Scripture to the Church." While this is strictly true, it does not indicate the full scope of Father Varillon's knowledge and useful reading. In developing his many points such as, The Various Stages in the History of God's People, On the Threshold of the New By JOHN J. ECKHART Testament, Christ in Word and Action, The Discourse after the Last Supper, The Paschal Mystery, The Mystery of the Church, The Sacraments, and The End of Man and History, the author makes profuse and specifically suitable references to the Fathers and Doctors of the Church. In fact, his particular talent in using both tradition and scripture, is an excellent ex- ample of the reasonable mesh- ing of the two, the way it should be meshed, making one wonder what all the shooting is about concerning the primacy of one over the other. Once again, I fear I do not envision everyone reading this book. Not that they couldn't w i t h profit, but due to the very thoroughness of the author and the nature of the vast project, it does tend to ponderousness. But it only tends, it never becomes ponderous. It is reas- onable, and by its very reason- ableness, it is inspirational. "CONTEMPORARY MORAL THEOLOGY, Vol. II, MAR- RIAGE QUESTIONS," by Re,. John C. Ford, S.J. and Rev. Gerald Kelly, S.J., New- man Press, 503 pp., $6.95 T IS really a shame that this book will not be as widely read as some others, of more questionable value, concerning this increasingly popular sub- ject. The authors are to be con- gratulated for a philosophical posture vastly superior to much of the nonsense spewed into print on the problems of mar- riage. These authors obviously are not seeking sensational repu- tations, but rather are much involved in truth and reason. They do not/ear down all ex- isting structures in the capri- vating exhiliration of new for the sake of new, but neither do they remain immovably attached to concepts ] u st because they are old and hallowed by tradition.

These problems include birth control, "The Pill," fam- ily planning, as well as the morality and justice of all mar- riage rights and obligations. Unfortunately most of this serious attempt at an intelli- gent approach is couched in the slightly more esoteric language of the moralist, and is meant, primarily, for con- lessors and spiritual guides. And this is how it must be. As a layman, I cannot con- Ceive the duty of the confessor as one of faceless absolution. Obviously this encounter of sin- ful man with forgiving Christ must be as numerically varie- tal as there are persons con- fessing. Each penitent, with say his marital problems, poses an- other subtle shading, another facet of the immutable truths. This book was written is a further guide for those that must weigh each individual act on the scale of morality. It can- not be simple. However, there is great hope for a continuing g o o d sense approach to this sub- ject while men of this stature continue to investigate, not whine, about the problems of marriage. To know this book exists is a good thing. To read it is a better thing. Star of Ch,:itv Long ago in Holland it was customary for a procession of young men to pass through the streets just before Christmas. collecting money for the relief of the aged and the helpless.

AThtlee miracle of Cane, opening miracle of His public life, Jesus reveals the work of His minis- try. He expresses, too, the role of His holy Mother in the work of Salvation. The scene is a wedding in Galilee. Jesus' Mother is there as well the first of His chosen few whom Jesus brings to the feast. All partake in the joyful festivities for unlike John the Baptist, whose life was in the desert, Jesus goes among men to make holy all human activ- ity. He and His disciples join the party in enjoying the gifts of God--but the wine supply runs short. (possibly because there were more guests -- the disciples .-- than expected). Before the couple even notice, Mary sees the difficulty. Does she want these people to be embarrassed by the shortage? No. Unable to correct the sit- uation herself, she goes to her Son and simply tells Him: "They have no wine." She is humble. She does not suggest what He should do. She doesn't press Him, but she does know His concern for others. He will do what is best. Jesus' answer may seem stranRe: "Woman. my hour has not yet come." First is the form of address: "Woman . . ." Why does Jesus not say: "Mother . . .";that would be more personal and in line with the physical reality. Jesus is making a public state- ment here and addresses His Mother in a common, polite form; yet there is an even deep- er significance. The first man of creation called the Mother of all men "woman" (Gen. 2: 6-25), and the first man of the new creation REV. MR. MICHAEL C. O'BRIEN St. Thomae Seminary. Keemoro now calls His mother "woman." Christ prepares for the events this miracle prophesies for on the Cross He will again call her "woman" and make her the mother of all men in the per- son of St. John (Jn. 19:25-27). He is announcing the new creation and the new testa. meat. The second part of the reply, "My hour has not yet come," may, at first sight, seem to say, "I am not going to do anything about it." But His Mother ob- Viously did not understand it that way. The final hour has not yet come, that hour of glory when He will offer the redemp- tive sacrifice, when He will change the wine to His own blood of sacrifice for the glori- ous resurrection of all man- kind (Matt. 26-28). This is not that hour, but it is a sign and prophesy of it. This clear, the way is prepared for action, for the preparation alerts them that what comes next will not be ordinary. This is enough for Mary. She tells the servants to do whatever He tells them. In her. the supreme eonfldenee and openness revealed at the Annunciation in her, "Be it done to me aeeording to your word," (Lk. 1:38) is again manifest as she tells them to dq likewise. Then, qlfietly, the miracle. The servants fill the jars and brinR them to Christ. What God usually does in months by means of grapes and sunlight He does in an instant, and water is completely changed. Now there is wine, and the finest of wine in great abundance. When the head steward says, "You have kept the best until last," he says more than he realizes. If we look back to the Old Testament, we find Moses lead- ing God's people out of Egypt's slavery. In the desert, the water supply ran out and Moses struck the rock and water poured forth (Ex. 17:1-7). The people bad drink as well as a sign of God's presence and of new life. Moses' miracle foretold the promised land to which God was leading His people, a land flowing with milk and honey. Christ is to lead God's people, His people, out of bondage. His life is the new exodus from the slavery of sin to the freedom of the promised land of the Chris- tian era. The definitive entry into that land is to take place especially with Christ's sacrifice in His last days--Climaxed in His resurrection and glorifica- tion. This first miracle announces that final event Christ takes plain water and changes it into the finest of wine, and this in abundance. The water of the Old Testament is com- letely changed. No longer is it water and no longer is it the era of the Old Testament. This wine of the Gospel is better than even the waters of the original creation and the water of the Law of Moses. And Christ will lead the people of God from their bondage to the freely given life of the New Testament. The road to the Resurrection is opened -- the road to the "marriage feast of the Lamb" (Apoc. 19:6-10). "And his disciples believed in him." They, at least, began to under- stand what He intended to teach them, the mystery of the min- istry. ............... :. r Price Tags to New Legislations By r-+rqe N. Kramer, Ph.D. This week's news con- sisted chiefly of a little of this and a little of that, nothing outstanding, sensational or unexpected. Not even President .Tohnson's five special messages to Con- gress proposing far-reaching legislation have made much of a dent as prime news. because he had Mready promised these in his State of the Union Mes- sage. The really new aspects of these five messages are the price tags, the immensity of which nobody can aporeciate anyhow, and the precedent the President established by propos- ing these vast measures before inauguration day. The health and medicare pro- gram was sent to Capitol Hill Friday. A broad estimate of the cost of the first part of the pro- gram would require $262 million in new spending for the fiscal year 1966, and $800 million in 1967. Medicare would be financed out of an increase of Social Security tax from the present 3 percent on the first $4800 of salary to .2 percent on $5600 of income by 1971. These are minimum figures, which may be expected to increase as time goes on. Tuesday, the education pro- posal called for $1,68 billion in new federal spending.- This would raise federal outlay for education in the fiscal year of 18 startin in July to a total of $8.6 billion. That is billions, not millions. The recommended b u d g e t item for the space program will be nothln less than abnut 5.5 billion, of which one billinn may be allocated to Isnding de- tection equipment on Mars in 1971. Messages concerning foreign aid. perhaps to cot not less than another $3..5 billinn, and rhanges in the immigration laws have not yet been announced. Even before the twn cham- bers of the new 8th ConRress have been sufficiently orga- nized to do business, they have been overwhelmed by the "mnst" leRislation de- manded by the Great Society. Other presidential messages, such as the one on the econ- omic situation of the nation and that on tbe budget will come very shortly. Any hope of the members of Congress to adjourn this session before August or September at the earliest must be referred to the committee on day-dreaming. While Congress will begin wrestling with the nation's prob- lems, two events next week are certain .,t9 atuse national in. te1"est--the reConvening of the UN General Assembly Monday and the presidential inaugura- tion Wednesday. Hikita's Docha By this time the general be- lief has been fairly well estab- lished that poor Nikita Khrush. chev has not been executed or even imprisoned. He is assertedly livtng a quiet life in an exclusive re, treat where his Daeha, or country house, is located about 24 miles west of Mos- cow. He spends much of his time hunting moose, deer and rab- bits, for which he must be per- mitted to carry a gun. Voluntarily or involuntarily, he rejects all interviews and re- fuses to see anyone excepting his closest friends and relatives. Despite the excuse given by his successors in the Kremlin that he was forced to retire be- cause of ill health, Khrushchev at the age of 70 is surprisingly spry. When not hunting, he de- friend, Roswell Garst, and in raising thoroughbred hogs. He apparently does not worry overmuch about the state of the world nor his great loss in not being able to keep it in perpetual turmoil.. For a dictator he seems quite content and composed. After all, a dacha, or a spa- cious apartment in Moscow's Lenin Hills if he wants it, to- gether with an income of the equivalent of $300 a month when the working slave in-the Soviet Union must .be content with an $80 per month average, is noth- ing to be sneezed atl Of course, poor Nina, his wife, receives a mere pittance, the equivalent of only $132 a month. By this time it gradually dawns upon the mind of the reader that it was just another quaint Commie gimmick when Khrushchev was "ousted," and the explanation we gave at the time that it was all part of a game to relieve the Peking- Moscow "rift" which Khrush- chev had so ingeniously pro- moted to fool the Free World was not far from the truth. votes a great part of his time _ _ experimenting with hybrid ,'r seed supplied by his Iv.'a Banking Cooperatives By MOST REVEREND FULTON J.

NE does not often think of mission- aries as being bankers, but they are. Their business, however, is never conducted for their own profit, but solely for the profit of so-called depositors. The sort of bank that e missionary runs is called a coopera- tive. As Our Lord fed the multitude before He preached to them, so today's missionary must "go, and do in like manner." The following story from a missionary will illustrate how essential cooperatives are in mission lands, "A man lived with his wife and five children in a bamboo hut with a thatched roof and dirt floor. He had been work- ing eight years in the jungle, cutting down giant trees to clear the land. But, having no money to buy rice, beans and corn, he had to borrow from a moneylender to whom he paid 10 per cent interest a week." (If he borrowed $10 his interest was over $52 a year!) By the time his land was cleared the pc, or farmer found himself so heavily in debt thet he could not plant, buy provisions for the rainy season or medicine for his sick children, To remedy thls common situation the mis- sionary founded a cooperative among the farmers four years ago. They now pay only eight per cent interest instead of 19 per cent a week. And the 465 members o| the eoopera. "rive receive over 200 per cent more for their harvests than they did from the "loan shark." The cooperative today is debt-[ree, has a three-ton truck and a purebred bull with which the members can improve their growing stock without charge.

KANE, Ph.D. Pro4Nles of Soololoqly, Universlty of Notre Damo Wh can a young mother do for her husband and three : children when she is dying? There m'e no relatives to rear them. + How can I assure mysel[ they will be properly raised spiritually, mentally and emotionally I say emotmnally since I believe my death will be deeply disturbing to these young children. I am not atraid [or mysel[, not spiritually anyway, but it crushes me to think at my children. OUR letter is an unusualiy sad one. It is almost inevitably a tragedy for young children to lose a mother and the home broken when youngsters m;e below the teens does present greater problems than later. The fact that there are no relatives to help rear the children further complicates matters. But you should take heart by placing your trust in God and taking certain steps now when you are able to do so. You do not mention the nature of your illness except to indicate it is fatal. Has your physieian informed you that your illness is fatal?] I must assume he has or you would not write in such a vein. But physieians are trained in medicine, not prophecy. What he,  in effect, means is that statistically speaking the type of illness you have is almost inevitably fatal. More than one patient hat been given up by medical science only to recover and live: for. years. This is no reflection on medical science and one would be rash not to consider most seriously such a statement from a physician. But at the same time one can pray that if it be God's will, you may be spared to see your children reared. Don't forget that hope is a virtue to be encouraged by all in all. You can recognize the possibility that you may die, H6w- much time is left so far as medical science can gauge it? This may be most important. You indicate you have made your peace with God, spiritually you are prepared for death. Here, at least, is an advantage not shared by all persons. URING these final weeks or months, it is easy, or to put it more strongly, it is difficult for you not to become discour- aged, pessimistic and depressed. Your husband and children will carry memories of you with them during the rest of their lives. The kinds of memories they hold will depend in part, and for the young children almost entirely on how you behave during these trying days ahead, .- So far as your health permits, you can spend whatever time possible in teaching your children about God, virtue and in gi' ing them a tt;uly religious outlook on life. You will have to try to keep up your husband's spirits, He too must be suffering keenly if he knows of your probable impending death. If you have any property, real or personal, you should con- sider how you wish to dispose of it. If it is of any significant value, you should call an attorney and make a will. Talk this over Witi your husband and the lawyer. The latter can offer sound advic if you have money or investmehts, particularly if you wish to establish a trust for your children. But while the disposal of property is a mundane matter, it must be dealt with. Your spiritual outlook seems excellent and there remains the important question of how you can assure yourself that your children will be reared soundly. No one can ever be entirely certain of what will happen in the future, whether he is living or dead. The future belongs to God. OU fear your death will be emotionally disturbing to your children and you worry about their future rearing for lack of a mother. So perhaps the best possibility would be for them ti acquire another mother through your husband's remarriage. You indicate that you are young and I assume your husband is, too. Life will be quite lonely for him and while some widowers do an outstanding job of rearing children without help, it is quite difficult. He must be absent from the home during most of the day. A housekeeper will help and sometimes they make marvelous foster mothers. But there are not the ties that would exist if your husband remarried. Talking to more than one husband who has suffered a recent bereavement, I invariably hear the same remark. So long as the children are around in the evening, things are fine. But When the children retire, or if older, go out, he feels a sharp pang of loneliness for his late wife and companion. It may not be easy for you to do this, but you should sound your husband out on this matter and encourage him. Obviously, it will be difficult for him to discuss it at all and he probably will not want to do so. A great deal depends upon your approach. If you do this on the basis of the mutual love you have for each other and for the children, as well as the welfare:of all,- I think he will understand. N the event of your death and your husband's eventual decision to remarry, he will want someone like you. He willalso need someone who is not merely willing, but eager, to assume the role of mother to three young children. So his choice will have to be made prudently and after some interval of time. I would not reoommend a quick marriage after a short inter z val of mourning. He will be too emotionally upset to make a careful decision. Furthermore, his memory of you will still be strong within him and he will make constant comparisons 'be- tween his widow and his wife. During this interval a housekeeper will have to fill in and, in fact, it may be you already have such a woman beca use. o.f your illness. If so the transition, in the event of you/" demise, will be somewhat eased. Perhaps an older woman could be em- !oyed to live in the home and give most of her attention fo Child rearing while another could carry on the household chores. Or as the children grow older they could be placed in board- ing schools, coming home during vacation periods. This I would definitely not recommend because it deprives children of a true home life, in which they can learn what mar- riage and family living really are, There are cases in which such procedure must be followed and there are some fine boarding schools. But at best they make a poor substitute for a good mother in a good home. The remarriage of your husband may make this possible for your children. ,,:,0-1,:.,,.a,. ,. ao,,,. K,'VW.,.
