) ohn Eckhart ]ewing Our Nat&apos;l Conscience "THE MODERN GOD," by Gustave Weigel, S. J.,The Macmillan Company, 168 pp., $3.95. "[_ENCE, we must not ex- | ! pact too much from the intellectuals in our quest for God. Only three generations ago they told us God was dead. To- day many of them laugh at their predecessors, and tell us that God is very much alive. On their own word, it is evident that the intellectuals were mis- leading guides in the past. There has been nothing so changed that the new members of the class have a higher de- gree of infallibility than their fathers had." Such honesty is refreshing, especially from a member of the very class he justly criti- cizes. One of the important points of this book, empha- sized by the author himself, is the possible evil results of that great occupational haz- ard of the intellectual... pride. Father Weigel believes him- self, and truly I would think, a member of that congregation, the intellectuals. It is important therefore when he reminds us that to walk with God is not necessarily the lot of the intellectual. He is, in fact, given the same chance at heav- en as the rich man. It's too narrow a gate for such a large brain pan. With just such honesty, con- viction, and obvious thought, Father Weigel probes beneath the ugly outer layers of our secular, and secularistic soci- ety, to find the dwelling place of the Lord God. He examines a culture founded on the rock hard be- lief in a personal God, a cul- ture seemingly hellbent to slice away from that founda- By JOHN J. ECKHART tion, and still, like a child, not quite certain the mo d e r n prophets are right. But the author does not rele- gate his dissection to the body politic. He also examines the face of the Church in such a shaky world. In his examination he calls for a "big theology." While this might smack of a Madison Avenue advertising campaign, it is the language best understood by most Ameri- cans. By this he means the real and the complete living of the Gospels, every bit as applicable in this century as it was 2,000 years ago. It's a heady proposition, but reader, it is my minuscule opinion that you will agree it is the only theology that will lead out of the morass o[ modern stupidity. This saving theology must find its goodness within itself. And here he makes a strong point for maintenance of strict orthodox standards, something Father Weigel has been ac- cused of forgetting. He states himself that... "Just bringing the churches together and gluing them one upon the other will not make one big church." Good for you Father Weigel. There were times in the past I had my own doubts. For a clear view into the interior of our national conscience, read this book. I do not agree with every word he writes. Big deal, It is a book worth reading. "THE LORD'S DAY," by Louis J. Putz, C.S.C., Fides Publishers, 234 pp., $3.95. HE infinitely rich mines of the liturgy and the liturgi- cal year bear witness to an ever increasing amount of excellent reading that is meant to aid us in a more complete understand- ing of the mystery that tran- scends all mystery. Plus Parsch ram ain s the master in this field, a truth quickly admitted by Father Putz. However, such a subject cannot be the exclusive proper- ty of one writer. This book takes us through the Sundays of the year, as well as the major feasts. Fa- ther Putz gathers in a great treasure of .historical back- ground, Gospel reference, as well as his own well present- ed reactions and conclusions on the Lord's day, the Sun- days and feasts. His literary style is quite ac- ceptable, cursive, tight, eco- nomical without tenseness, and while it does not explode with mystic poetry, it very certainly conveys the depth and beauty in the contemplation of the Lord's Day. 7"eature Films On Television Bellingham KING-TV (NBC) Channel 3 KVOS-TV Channel 12 KIRO-TV (CBS) Channel 7 Tacoma Seattle KTNT-TV (CBS) Channel 11 KOMO-TV (ABC) Channel 4 KTVW-TV Channel 13 MOTION PICTURE CLASSIFICATION BY NATIONAL LEGION OF DECENCY: A-I--Morally Unobjectionable for General Patronage; A-II--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults and Adolescents; A-III--Morally Unobjectionable for, Adults; B--Morally Objectionable in Part for All; C-Condemned; SC--Separate Classification; NR--No Rating Available. fNote: The ratings listed below were those given the original movies.

Thomas, S.J. pleaded "for the death of the familiar." In re- itual decline of the world. The Anglicans are We just had a mission in our parish, and the priest lation to the poverty of the world, he said that in the future, "every congregation will be asked to spend as much time and money in aiding the church abroad as it does at home. This means the end of the familiar view that mission work is an option--something that we do with our sur- plus after local needs." Continuing with a deep sense of Christian solidarity, he added "The 'have' congregations will be expected to forego many desirable things in order to help the 'have- nots.' " It is often said of clever words: "I wish I had said that." As the Lord praised the faith outside of Israel, so may the Church praise the mission- mindedness of the separated brethren. A spir- itual truth to all who know the world situation is: We will be the Church of the Poor, or we will be the "poor Church"; that is, we will either share our wealth with the impoverished, or our material hoarding will bring spiritual impoverish- ment. Reducing this to the concrete, should not the Church in the U.S. resolve to some such spir- itual and material plan as the following: 1. To give priority to the basic NEEDS of Africa, Asia, Oceania and Latin America be- fore we satisfy our co-called WANTS. 2. To limit the cost of churches and cathe- drals to a million dollars in order that the Eu- charistic Lord might at least dwell in huts in the slums of the world. 3. Religious societies who do missionary work will forego building up capital invest- ments in order that the poor missionaries may live on what would represent interest. 4. Young people who are rich enough to have their 8wn cars will give the equivalent of a gallon of gas a week to buy food for the 10,000 who die daily because of starvation. 5.

Dr. Lynn Carson, Rabbi Raphael Levine and Rev. Will- iam Treacy will once more be panelists for off-the-cuff dis- cussions of timely and contro- versial issues. For the opening telecast the clergymen will examine "The Un-Wed Father--The Forgotten Figure in the Tragedy". What steps are being taken to increase his responsibility and what can be done to prevent such a tragedy from happening in the first place will be discussed.

Yes, we are spiritual--we eat of the Bread of Life. But is not the Eucharist also an announce. ment of the "death of the Lord until He comes?" This implies sacrifice on our part for Christ's sake. Do what you can--in your parish, your diocese, your home, and with yourself to an- nounce this death by making yourself responsible for the underfed and underelothed. The Holy Father said that he is to be aided "first and principally" through his Society for the Propagation of the Faith. The great ad- vantage you will have'by sacrificing for him is--there will be no hoarding. Every cent re- ceived is spent on the Missions.

Hold Test Ban Ball been reported out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by a vote of 16 to 1. The committee attached no formal reservations that might require re-negotiation of the pact which was signed in Mos- cow last August 5. The Admin- istration wanted it that way be- cause it expected ratification at the earliest possible time, de- spite the fact that the Soviet Union has not yet ratified. Furthermore, it contends that the reservations proposed by some Sentors opposed to the treaty as it is written could be explained away in the committee's interpretation of the treaty's provisions. However, it has been stated repeatedly that the wording of the document stands as written, which patently would make any "understandings" or "interpre- tations" as explained by Sen. J. W. Fulbright, chairman of the committee, as no substantive value. Administration pressures have been persistent and intensive, while press releases are giving the public the impression that ratification of the treaty is over- whelmingly favored. After 12 days of committee hearings, the overall picture does not-quite support this view, while misgivings and objections have not been extensively pub- licized. Many of the 100 Senators find themselves confronted with the alternatives of voting for ratification against their better judgment or voting against it and suffering the false accusation that they are against peace. No doubt, the Soviet Onion would make excellent propa- ganda out of this. Public Opinion There used to be a tradition that in a democracy, the will of \\; the people reigned supreme and was expressed through what was called public opinion. The man of the street holds his tongue in his cheek when he speaks about the treaty mostly because he knows very little about it, but he doesn't trust the Communists. He can readily understand the assumption that this treaty is intended to bring about what President Kennedy called "the first step" to peace, but he isn't so certain what the "second step" might lead to or where it might end. There is certain to be a sec- ond step, and perhaps another, otherwise this would not be des- ignated the first step. The man of the street may not understand all the implica- tions of the treaty's effect on our military defenses, but he wants those defenses amply safeguarded. This is especially germalne to the consideration of ratify- ing the treaty, because it has been officially admitted that it will not prevent a war. Finally, the question as he understands it, should be not so much how the treaty might jeopardize the interests and se- curity of the U.S. but of what value it might have in a con. structive way. This has yet too be shown. Adm. Ward Speaks Anyone who believes that military leaders are unanimous in their support of the ratifica- tion of the treaty have failed to look at the complete record. It is Understandable that those presently in aetive mili- tary serviee will guard well their testimony so as not to offend their civil superiors, but among those who have been retired more forceful ex- pression against the treaty pervails, Consider, for example, Rear Admiral Chester Ward (Rot.), who this week has a piece in Human Events reviewing the dangers of the test-ban treaty. He makes much of the impor- tance of asking the right ques- tions, and suggests that the Senators do this next week when they engage in debate on the Senate floor. He makes a dire prediction of what fill follow if U.S. again refuses to face the facts. Here it is: "The U.S. Senate will ratify the so<ailed limited test ban deal with Moscow. This will freeze the United States in second place to Russia in the technology of strategie nu- clear weapons. U.S. nuclear strike capability will be re- duced so fast relative to the Soviets' mushrooming super- weapon strength that within 18 months we will have lost our power to deter a Soviet surprise attack, or to retaliate effectively against the over- whelming military power of their superweapons of annihi- lation." Take it or leave it, the Sena- tors have a grave responsibility in what they will do next week, for it may be the week of final decision. 'Deep Concern' Another prominent opponent of the test ban pact was Adm. Arthur W. Radford (Ret.), who served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1953 to 1957. In a letter to Sen. Fulbright which was made public by Sen. Strom Thurmond (D.-S.C.) after the committee hearings had ended, the Admiral expressed "deep concern for our future if the treaty is ratified as it now stands." Following are extractsi from his letter: "The treaty is imprecise, it is vague in areas where it should be specific. Unless we insist upon clarification now, we will find ourselves in great difficulties later on. Remem- ber our difficulties about ac- eess to Berlin? "Undoubtedly the Commu- nist leaders of the U.S.S.R. believe this treaty is to their advantage, otherwise they would not have signed it. "Almost certainly it is an ar- gument which will' ultimately result in the U.S.S.R. obtaining important advantages in the development of more advanced weapons, with all the disadvan- tage that this implies for us." Explaining that a just and genuine peace means one thing to Americans and something very different to the Commu- nists. Radford said: "Khrushehev has frequently made it plain that 'peaceful eexistenee' means a continu- ation of a relentless struggle by all available means, includ- ing wars of liberation." PRAYER TO ST. JUDE To be said in great affliction, or when one seems to be de. prived o all visible help, or [or cases despaired ot. "Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus. the name of the traitor wbo delivered thv beloved Mas- ter into the hands of His ene- mie. haa caused thee to he for- gotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee uni- versally, as the patron of hope- less cases, of things despaired oL Pray for me who em so mis- erable; make use I implore thee, of that particular privilege ac- corded of thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help is most despaired of.

Frankly, my five children don't look very much like the picture of St. Agnes with her lamb or St. Aloysius in his buster brown collar. They are certainly not given to prayer or mortification. Is sainthood a realistic goal/or modern children and modern parents? IRST of a11, remember that there are two categories .... ,, , . of samts: Saints wzth a big S and salnts wlth a little "s". A saint is not an austere, paled aloof character standing in a stained-glass window with a lily in his hand. Saints are flesh and blood people. They come in all shapes and sizes. They come from battlefields and the courts of kings, hospitals and mission huts, from universities and slums, from convents and kitchens. The saints the church will canonize in 1999 will look pretty much like you. In the earlier times all good Christians were thought of as saints, the holy ones, the baptized, those who are bound for heaven and going to put up a good fight, the process of canon- ization and other factors have changed this idea. Canonization is the formal addition of a person's name to the list of official Saints--that is, to those who are definitely said to be saved, who are publicly honored, and to whom mir- acles are attributed. This procedure has turned Saints into a special caste of super-heroes and we begin to think sanctity is not for the likes of us. Saints are simply spiritual people. This doesn't mean ghosts or ascetics who pretend they don't have bodies. Saints are peo- ple responsive, to the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Love. They are people who commit themselves to God's Will, who open them. selves to it in prayer, and carry it out in action. Sanctity consists in a life of virtue, that is, in habitually seeking and doing the Will of God. Is sanctity a realistic goal for your children? The psycholo- gists mean something quite like sanctity when they talk about complete maturity as a goal for your children. They distinguish three kinds of maturity. Knowing Value Of Things IRST, intellectual maturity. This is not the mere knowing of many things. It is rather knowing the value and importance of things. The intellectually mature persons orders his knowledge and creates a hierarchy and schema of values. He knows not only what is important (e.g., truth more important than money and justice more important than security), but also WHEN it is more important. A nuclear physicist gaining fame but seriously neglecting his children is immature. A learned lawyer spending too much time with his family neglecting his practice is also immature. Intellee- tual maturity is the possession of a true sense of values. In the Christian life we might call it the virtue of wisdom. Emotional maturity is next. Emotional maturity is the proper reaction and response to situations, the self-control to do what we know is important. The emotionally mature person does not over-respond (using your umbrella on the head of the little old lady who accidentally ' jostles you on a crowded bus) or under-respond (the husband who returns home to find his wife has been taken to the hospital but calmly keeps his plans to go bowling). Emotional maturity is not the stifling nor yet the unleashing of emotions, but their control and channeling toward what is important. Thus, sometimes strong anger can he the mature emotional response. The teen-ager who knows he should not stay out too late but does so when his "friends" call him chicken, is a typical example of emotional immaturity. The emotionally mature person acts in the correct measure. He could be said to possess the moral virtues of prudence, jus- tice, fortitude and temperance. Even Thouqh It Hurts INALLY there is volitional maturity. This is the ability to make decisions on principle, even if the result is not person- ally rewarding, even if loss or suffering be entailed. It is the ability to choose the good for ourselves and others. It could be called the beginning of the virtue of charity which is love. You might sum it up in this way. Tiny babies in a sense are the most selfish critters on earth. They know nothing but them- selves. If they are warm and dry and fed, all is well. It is the challenge of parents to lead them to the awareness of the needs and rights of others, to responsibility, and finally to selfless love. Place your little finger before a baby; he closes his fist upon it and grasps it to himself. The parent must gradually teach him to open his hand, to extend his arms in giving, and finally to stretch them to the measure of Christ's on the Cross, to the love which lays down its life for a' friend. If you can teach your child the way of maturity, to know what is right, to know what is important, to control and channel his feelings, and finally to choose the good, even at a cost to himself, he is on his way to the beginnings of sanctity. Let him, in addition, then grow up in a home where faith and prayer are important, and God will do the rest. Sister says "Use the Maryknoll Missal."
