D D ckhart Gifts of Providence "APPROACHES TO THE CROSS," by Canon Jacques Leclerq, The Macmillan Co., 113 pp., $2.50, trans, by The Earl of Wicklow. HE age tries to deny death. It tries to deny that there is sickness, sorrow, privation and-old age. These are diffi- cult concepts to live with, but we make a valiant try. Our advertisements, our mer- chants, all point to the youth giving, comfortizing, hypnotic suggestion that their products are for the young, the young in heart, or any old fool in his second cildhood. We are not acting like Christians, not when we refuse to accept sickness, poverty, old age, injustice and death as gifts of Divine Provi- dence. Canon Leclerq, never fail- ing in his good sense ap- proach, has written what should be the new handbook of Christian rationality a n d mode of living life. He begins by explaining the fallacy of referring to all the good things that happen to us as "providential," and refusing to use the term in relation to the sorrowful gifts. His words lead us into Christ's t o t a I kingdom, the equal joy we should share when He has laid further suf- fering on our shoulders, to know these sufferingsas a share in His complete redemp- tive act. None of his topics are pleas- ant, but the proper reception of such suffering, such facts of life like old age and death, can be the subject of the most pro- found optimism, the deepest joy, and open well-springs of Divine love that give a true and awesome meaning to all that seems unjust and without meaning from our limited point of view. Our Model was unjustly ac- cused, maligned, humiliuted, tortured, and finally killed in a terrible manner. He bore it all with humility and pa- tience. We must trust to His wisdom, His meaning, His By JOHN J. ECKHART love, and pray with Henri Nicaise, "O Lord, You have struck me so hard that everything in me is as it were broken." Canon Leclerq closes this fine b o o k by quoting the entire prayer of editor Nicaise as a model of how we can, if prop- erly disposed, approach the Cross.--J.J.E. THE JEWISH.CHRISTIAN AR- GUMENT, by Hans Joachim Schoeps, Holt, Rinehart and Winston. 208 pp., 1963. NYONE seriously i n t e r - ested in Christian-Jewish dialogue today would be fool- ish to ignore the disputations of the past 1,900 years between the Church und the Synagogue. Conscious of an improving atmosphere for Judea-Chris- tian polemic, in 1937 Hans Joa- chim Schoeps, a German Jew, chronicled the main controver- sies between the two groups. His book, just recently trans- lated into English, pinpoints the pertinent beliefs which have recurred as stumbling blocks since the First Century A.D. Schoeps records this tale of conflict sometimes as n heated debate, occasionally as a friendly meeting, often as a hostile and bitter si- lence through the years. Over and over the abiding theme remains: Jew could not af- firm, nor could Christian deny that Christ is the Mes- siah; that the election of Is- rael has been transferred to the Church; that the Law of the Old Testament has been abrogated through faith in the Christian revelation. As historian, Schoeps appears to be without prejudice. He displays a keen perception of the motives and attitudes of the participants involved. His book affords a fair insight into Jewish conviction. Understand- ing and respect, not facts and figures are the probable con- sequence of hearing him out.

The theme for the observance is "Read and Unite Our Chang- ing World." Unity has become a charac- teristic of this day and age. The Ecumenical Council stresses unity in faith, the nations of the world stress unity in treaties, the United States stresses unity in race relationships and Cath- olic Book Week stresses unity in good reading.

Thomas, S.J. in the world, not only every soul: "Preach the I am 15 years old and beginning to date. What I n'ant Gospel to every CREATURE," said Our Lord. You may think this column too general for Who in the Church has to learn most about Mission? The Church of the Western World! The Missions have been regarded as a found- ling on the doorstep of the Church of the West- ern World and, in particular, the United States. Missions have not been a legitimate child to be daily cared for, fed, and nourished, but some- thing that interrupts one's comfort and peace until it has been thrust into other hands. Once or twice a year, a collection is taken for the 2,000 million who do not know Christ, and an odd gift here and there is sent to the found- ling. The Council will remind the Catholics of the Western World that the Missions are not found- lings to whom we give gifts, but our own flesh and blood whom we serve before we please our- selves. The Council, furthermore, win recall the words of Our Lord to His Church in which He united two ideas that may not be divorced. One: "I have come not to be ministered unto, but to minister"--this means Mission. The other: "And to give my Life for the Redemption of many"-- this is Passion. Mission is service of others; Pas- sion is the crucifixion of self for others. Our Lord intertwined the Church and the Crucifix, the Body and its surrender in love, the source of Divine Power and the love by which that power is surrendered to others. In the Missions, the Church can present itself to the world only as a servant, not as lord; only as giver, not as receiver. Its symbol is the towel with which its Divine Founder girded Himself to you to do anything about, saying it refers to the Church, the bishops and the priests. But YOU are the Church and you are waiters to the wedding of Mission and Passion. By send- ing a sacrifice, you will make us bishops and priests remember: "What God hath put to- gether, let no man put asunder."

Big Fizzle at De Gaulle Conference By George N. Kramer, Ph.D. The most promising news of the week turned out to be a sorry disap- pointment. The world was wondering what explanation for having ex- tended diplomatic recognition to Red China President Charles de Gaulle would give at his semi-annual press conference last Friday. The thousand newsmen and officials who squeezed into the ballroom of the Elysee Palace avidly awaiting sensational dis- closures left after 92 minutes of boring discourse with little more information than they had when they came in. They noted that Le Grand Charles was not his. usual self. He seemed older and tired. Whether the ?g-year- old general had really aged or whether the turn of events within the past week dis- heartened him was not clear. Using up most of his time talking about France and the six years under its present con- stitution together with its past and future relations with other nations, he reserved only the last 10 minutes to talk about the recognition of Red China. He avoided any clarification of France's position in the cur- rent controversy with Peking on the "two-Chinas" issue, yet he insisted that an internation- ally guaranteed neutrality for Southeast Asia appeared to be "the only situation compatible with the peaceful life and prog- ress of the populations." He said a neutrality treaty in which France is interested would be inconceivable "with- out China's being a party," but that diplomatic recognition did not imply "any kind of ap- proval of the regime that now dominates China." The way it looks from here, President De Guulle for once is day-dreaming, even though his remarks implied that he was a realist with a positive and far-reaching policy. But he appears to have no policy, much less a plan. The question of France sev- SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9 7:45 a.m., Hour of St. Francis, KXA Radio (/70 kc.)

It is equally unlikely that De Gaulle will take the initi- ative in this matter, especially since he expressed high praise at the press conference for "Marshal Chiang Kai-shek, to whose valor, patriotism and spiritual elevation, I am duty bound to render homage." These words caused Peking to deliver another blast against the French President, along with renewed demands this week for him to withdraw dip- lomatie recognition from Tat- wan. The French assumption that Peking might be persuaded to cooperate in maintaining neu- trality in Southeast Asia is an idle hope as shown by the com- munist Chinese activities in Laos, South Vietnam and Cam- bodia. They are not likely to decrease merely because Paris wants neutrality. It is already quite apparent that De Gaulle did not for- see recent developments and now finds himself dangling in a most undignified manner between the horns of a di. lemma. He is almost certain to be impaled by one of them re- gardless of what he does now. The tone of his press dis- course sounded a note of doubt, if not insincerity. Chou Returns Cbeu En-lai returned to Pe- king Wednesday after a most successful 50-day tour of 10 African states. He had planned on staying two weeks longer, but he was reported eager to return home to handle the problem posed by the exchange of diploma- tic missions with France. He is also quoted as having said that once his government's representative "appears in Paris, no other man can pose as the diplomatic representative of China." In the light of this state- ment it will be interesting to see what happens when Red China's charge d'affairs arrives to take over the Chinese em- bassy building within the next few days.

More Perplexity De Gaulle has had some ex- plaining to do regarding his new move toward Peking. For one thing, his govern- ment advised all capitals with which it has relations that her recognition of Red China im- plies no change in her attitude toward Communist East Ger- many. West Germany feared that the French action may be consid- ered by some uncommitted countries as a precedent for recognizing East Germany. France replied this week that there was no parallel between the situation of divided Ger- many and China and that France's disdane for East Ger- many had not changed. She said she regards the so.called East German Republic as non- existent, as a mere fiction. Then, too, De Gaulle under- took to clarify his ,position after President Lyndon John- son had said that his prescrip- tion for the neutralization of Vietnam was "not in the in- terests of freedom." In the first press confer. enee for which he gave news- men advance notice and to cameras since taking office, President Johnson Saturday reviewed eight troublesome problems, among which was South Vietnam. Pressed by newsmen to com- ment on De Gaulle's neutral- ization proposal, he said he did not agree with the general, although De Gaulle was en- titled to his view. The interests of freedom can be served un- der present conditions only by pursuit of the war effort in South Vietnam "diligently and I hope successfully," President Johnson said. Saigon Coup The bloodless unexpected coup which overthrew the rul- ing military junta of South Viet- nam last week now appears to have some relation to Presi- dent De Gaulle's desire to neu- tralize Southeast Asia. The new chief of state in Saigon, Maj. Gca. Nguyen Khanh, told Americans he had staged the coup to save South Vietnam from being forced into neutrality as LaDs was, and that four arrested members of the junta had been plotting with French agents to bring this about to coincide with France's recognition of Red China. "De Gaulle has blantly inter- fered in Vietnam," he charged. French officials denied that France had any part in the coup in South Vietnam or that diplomatic relations between the two countries had been broken. Strangely, however, the for- mer head of state in Saigon, Maj. Gen. Duong Van Mirth, has agreed to serve the new government as adviser. As a consequence, the U.S. contin- ued its complete backing of South Vietnam and recognized its new regime. Agitators, however, seem to be stirring up the people against the Khanh junta with overtones of criticism of the U.S. for having belned Khanh seize power. Demonstrating students this week were call- ing for return of Gen Minh to leadership and more effec- tive war efforts against the Viet Cong. The hopeful sign is that Gen. Khanh is advocating a stringer anti-Communist program and this appears also to be the popular sentiment.

I have heard lots o/ priests talk about it but they don't help very much. I have decided to give you another chance. f only you had let me know what those priests who didn't help very much had to say I would know better where to start! Was it because they didn't say what you wanted to hear that you didn't find it helpful, or because they talked about things you didn't understand? Because, you see, it makes a difference to me as I try to be worthy of your "one more chance!" The fact that you have sought out advice lets me know you are a thoughtful person, apparently anxious to do the right thing. And I also know that today it is not easy for a girl to know all the social answers when popularity with the boys seems to hinge on casual approach to necking. Your contemporaries may well be telling you that kissing is the LEAST you can do. If you want me to back this up, I must disappoint you. Why? Simply because kissing may be the MOST you can do. It may even be more than you StlOULD do! Let me explain. There is no magic formula to guide you in this area. There is no set number of minutes you may hold a boy's hand, or sit in a parked car, or dance--safely. There are a few basic facts you should know about this boy-girl relationship as the dates start. Perhaps you already know the adolescent boy is not. in gen- eral, as mature as a girl his own age. He is going through greater turmoil, physically, through these years than she is. He is created by God in such a way that his physical reactions will be more easily triggered, even when he reaches maturity. For this reason the girl, and the woman, has a God-given responsibility to be the guardian of the morals. Boy Has Responsibility, Too O NOT misunderstand me. I am not saying that the boy is without responsibility in this area, but he is more apt to lose sight of it or to misunderstand it in his intensity. Hc is also quick to misconstrue even the most innocent gesture of warmth from a girl. . He may regard the kiss she bestows as a "Thanks for the pleasant evening" as an avowal of everlasting love. She, on the other hand, may regard his routine handholding as a prelude to an engagement. Since this sort of thing is not easily discussed, great misunderstanding and heartache can follow. So, what are you to do? How are you to know? Is it always wrong to kiss? Always OK? We might start by thinking of a kiss of a mother, father, or valued friend-of-the-family. This per- son has such a deep affection for you that an outward sign seems warranted. Yet there are many people of whom you are very fond who would never think of kissing you, simply be- cause your relationship is not deep enough. A first guide then is: a kiss should be meaningful, indicative of deep affection for a special person. This immediately rules out the meaningless sort which is meant only for date-bait. That type kiss and girl who gives them out, quickly gains a reputation among the boys as an easy mark, and she becomes the "Belle of the Forest Preserves" where it's dark. However, she seldom makes it to the prom. Having become selective, does all kissing become right? No, for when there is deep affection present between the boy and girl, a kiss can be dynamite. In this ease, each one must exercise such deep concern for THE GOOD OF THE OTHER (working definition of love) that no serious temptation to sin be permitted. To guard against this reqnires a thorough knowledge of oneself as well as one's date. You might be able to recognize those situations (fatigue, emotional movie, romantic music) which bring on a lessening of alertness; that are removed from the usual "chaperone" deter- rents (drive-ins, home alone, single dating in a car); that are frightening in themselves (horror movie, rough neighborhoods, risque shows). Second guide line then is: a kiss should be a Special Occasion, not a habit. There Is Simple Answer T is here that I'm usually asked "But why should anything that seems so natural and is so pleasant possibly be wrong, ever? If God didn't mean for us to be proficient in the art of kissing, why did He make us react so pleasantly?" The answer is simple. Our whole mechanism is set up to respond to this pleasure completely in marriage. It is here you find the ultimate answer to your question for kissing is always all right when it is recog- nized as a first step in affirming love. It is always wrong when it becomes an end in itself! Need you be "in love" with any boy you kiss? Not necessarily, but any boy you kiss should be worthy of your love and both of you should know that the kiss is a vital part of God's Plan--a privilege not lightly to be bestowed, and never without a grasp of the responsibilities it carries with it. A final word: Teenage kissing is vastly over-rated due to some mysterious conspiracy by High School Image Makers It is really much more meaningful and important in your adult life when it can be for real. Be wise. Wait until you're ready. The date you may lose for this stand wouldn't be the one you'd want to live with the rest of your life, anyway. /..b . .
