James tL Dearly he theme of this week and the close association with the World's Fair throws into sharp relief the pro- lem of maintaining Christian standards in the modern world.

C. MaRhatta,i College New York, N. Y. rother Celestine will de- liver a talk on "The Theology of Death and the B' Vocation" at Wednes- day aflerzaxm's sVady group for Brothers. In his speech, Brother stresses that "'the theology of death is de* vdoping tmrrently in the whole large" context of a renewed un- derstaeding of Christian eschatol- ogy or the study of last things." Brother Cetestine, head of the theology department at Manhat- tan College, gives the four par- ticular points of emphasis in the study of death: (1) death as mys- tery; (2) death as activity; (3) death as fulfillment; and (4) death of the Christian in Christ's death. As a mystery, it is comparable to the sense in which Christ, the Church and the Sacraments are mysteries--they have a visi- ble, material aspect rooted in time and also an invisible, divine aspect linking them to eternity. Death is an act involving the soul as much as the body. Death is fulfillment because what it be- gins is greater than what it ends. It is the consummatiofi and the consequence of all that has gone be/ore. Finally, death involves s in the death of Christ. It is a life* long process,whereby daily we reflect Christ s eschatol0gical at- titude to the temporary character of this world and grow as well Week needs of the body and the needs ot the soul. To maintain Christian stand- ards, in a world disordered by sin we must first acknowledge the gulf between earth and heaven. To maintain Christian standards in this world you must not only acknowledge the gulf but seek the bridge. In accomplishing this we must examine first of all -- our atti- tude toward the body. Thron_gh the sufferings of the body, you will rise from the cross to the glory of the Resurrection. Secondly, Christ also used the material good of creatio to worship His Father and to show their v a 1 u e to men. Thirdly, Christ committed Himself to men. God the Son assumed a human nature so that He will always be a man and will also plead the needs of His fellow men. For you I a y m e n, "one another" means your own children, your students in CCD, your fellow workers and businessmen, your neighbors and your community. Finally, nowhere more elenr- ly than in sacramental signs and liturgy does Christ show us that things of earth can be used to bridge the gulf be- tween earth and heaven. So turn back to your earth with all the vigor and zeal and love which you can muster. Seek Christ. Seek the things that are above, but firm in the convic- tion that the things that are be. low will one day be where Christ is when Christ will be all and will present the whole of crea- tion, the whole of man to His Father. We Must Transform The World "We cannot remain neutral and on the sidelines as we view the changes taking place in the world or be concerned only with our own salvation. We must trans- torm this modern wer'-d imo the Kingdom d God . . . in prepa- ration for His return." --Father McManus VISIT LITURGICAL WEEK SEE ALL OF SCENIC SEATTLE in His risen life which we share by grace.
