John Eckharl Our Lord's Commandments THE TWO COMMAND- MENTS OF CHRIST, by Francis J. McGar- rigle, S.J., The Bruce Publishing Co., 198 pp., $3.75. HE prime existential reality of the Christian law is love. To follow our Divine Saviour is to love. Essentially, this precept is of eat simplicity and under- andable to any wI'o would be rfect, even as their heaven- ly Father is perfect. But the very depths of this simplicity transcends the nat- ural order because as Father McGarrigle reminds us: "Love of God is the first principle in all correct lov. ing.,, Because of the profundity-in- implicity of God's law for man, the subject as the text material for a book will never run dry. As all men must love, and all By JOHN J. ECKHART men are different, the infinite variety of this Divine manifes- tation will continue to engender further exposition by learned men and talented writers like Father McGarrigle. Like all previous writers on this sublime subject, Father McGarrigle; of necessity, must focus all love of the natural or- der, man for his wife, parents for their childrcn, Lll men for other men, down to the white hot pinpoint of our love of God, and the only reality, God's in- finite love for His creatures. This was understood by all of the saint and expressed in the wondrous poetry of the Psalms and St. John of the Cross. Father McGarrigle draws up- on the thoughts of the saints as well as the New Testament, holds up the flame of love and illumines various natural re- lationships with the light. He writes, not as a pedant but as a brother in charity, of ,,ature Films Bellingham KVOS-TV Channel 12 Seattle KOMO-TV (ABC) Channel 4 On Television KING-TV (NBC) Channel 5 KIRO-TV (CBS) Channel 7 Tacoma KTNT-TV (CBS) Channel 11 K'I-TV Channel 13 MOTION PICTURE CLASSIFICATION BY NATIONAL LEGION OF DECENCY: A-l--Morally Unobjectionable for General Patronage; A-II--Morally Unobjectionable for Adults nd Adolescents; A-III--Morallv Unobjectionable for Adults; --Morally Objectionable in lart for All; C--Condemned; SC--Separate Classification; NR--No Rating Available.

The hungry fed in Christ's name, the sick visited ha Christ's name our Lord will account these as being done unto Himself. O Here are some reasons why you should remember The Society for the Propagation of the Faith in your will: (1) Because your bequest goes to the Vicar of Christ through his Soci- ety for the Propagation of the Faith. He makes the distribution of your legacy to the missions of the world. (2) Because the United States is the richest country in the world, and God will have mercy on your soul if you: divide His blessings with the poorest. (3) Because the Holy Father said that "charity to the missions exceeds all other charities, as heaven, earth; and eternity, time." (4) Because the Holy Father also said: "St. Margaret Mary observed, 'Blessed are those who die after a lifetime of devotion to the Sacred Heart,' but I say, twice blessed are those who die after a lifetime of dedi- cation to The Society for the Propa- gation of the Faith." (5) Because money given to the poor, such as our lepers and our underfed in Africa and Asia, makes of them intercessors in our behalf be- fore the throne of God. Do you think money left to care for homeless cats or a gymnasium will do as much for your soul as money left to convert maximum of benefit from your ma- terial goods by uniting your witl with the Divine Will, by sharing your wealth with The Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

Anyone accepting the "fish- ing port" story at face value would undertake to swallow a whale mistaking it for a min- now. To comprehend the true face of the news about Cuba, one must take a hard look at Gromyko who last Friday made a good deal of this parcel of .newly. acquired real estate. He used the UN Assam. bly forum to spout unre- strained invectives against the U.S. There was nothing fishy about this appeal to wokld opinion. He made the U.S. appear as the imperialist ag- gressor, pictured the Soviet Union as the peaceful defender of mankind. Secretary of State Dean Rusk is in New York, feebly sound- ing out sentiment of other na- tions about the prospect of supporting the cause of the U.S. He is receiving about as much encouragement as a panhandler. Most of the re- sponse indicates that the Soviet takeover of Cuba is a problem primarily if not ex- clusively of the U.S. After all, didn't the U.S. go to war to liberate Cuba from the colonial clutches of an ob- solescent monarchy, 64 years ago? At the same tilne we be- came guardian for the under- developed Philippines. We later bestowed on the respective peoples complete independ- ence. If it was a U.S. problem in 1898, why isn't the enslave- ment of the Cubans a prob. lem for the U.S. in 19627 Apart from Administration policy, the U.S. has become so bound up with the O.A.S., the UN, NATO and alliances that it appears to have lost all incentive, if not potency, to take independent action, even when its own security is being threatened. olic playwright Michel de Ghel- If we expect other nations derode entitled "Holy Gro- to come to our rescue, we shall tesques", wait a long, long tim e, which realistically will be never. Brazen Speech Adlai Stevenson's opening address to the UN Assembly stressed more cooperation and a stronger and more effective world organization.

Inchanstegui, who delivered a vicious reply to Stevenson. Gromyko launched an attack on the U.S. over Cuba, begin- ning with an assault on Presi- dent Kennedy and exploiting every available angle to deni- grate the U.S. throughout the major portion of his lengthy speech. He ignored entirely what the Soviet Union was-doing in Cuba, while accusing the U.S. of the very things his country is doing. He cleverly glossed over the arms traffic of the Soviets, keeping attention centered on the Cubans who were being threatened by an aggressive invader from the north. Samplings The deceit, evasion and provocation marking Gromy- ko's tirade may be sampled in the following paragraphs: "It is stated that the United States will be pre- pared to attack Cuba if it believes that Cuba is building up her forces to such a de- gree that she can pose a threat to the United States, or to the passage of the United States to the Panama Canal, or else a threat to any state of the Western Hemi- sphere. Any sober-minded man knows that Cuba is not pursuing either the first, or the second of the third, of these goals. This is fully realized by Ameri- can statesmen, too. They know full well that the aid ran- dered by the Soviet Union does not pursue these goals either, since they are alien to our policy. "One may well ask what kind of policy this (U.S. pol- iey) is. Surely this is a poliey of aggression, a policy of in- ternational depredation. What underlies this policy? Quite evidently the notion, inherited from the time of barbarity, that if you are strong, stran- gle one who is not as strong, and the more so one who is weak. "But such laws are common among animals where the strong devour the weak. That goes for animals--surely hu- mans should differ from ani- mals. "Can the United Nations reconcile itself with a situa- tion when one of its members loudly declares itself entitled to attack another country which is also a member of the United Nations? And all this is done because the in- ternal order in that country contradiets the way of think- ing of the United States Gov- ernment, and is not to its liking." These distortions and false statements normally would con- stitute fighting words, yet Adlai Stevenson's reply to them was almost innocuously defensive. Why did he not remind the Assembly of hundreds of Soviet broken promises and Soviet refusal to permit enslaved peo- ples to determine their own destinies? There is so much that might be said by our rep- resentatives, but never it said because we must not provoke the Reds. And because of that we are losing prestige and in- fluence.

By Father John L. Thomas, S.J. Professorof Sociology at St. Louis University Why is it that so many Catholic families ignore the needs of their Catholic neighbors who are in distress through sickness or bad luck? We are an elderly couple. My wife is sickly, and in the past 10 years I have spent eight long periods in the hospital, yet no one visits us, brings us any jood or eats, or even offers to cut the lawn, for which I am too poor to pay. The Youth League of the nearby Lutheran Church painted the house of a sick Catholic widow in the neighborhood and still brings her flowers. I hate to ask for help, but it would be nice to receive some attention. Are we getting too busy to think about charity today? our questions touch a broad, complex problem challenging modern Christians, so my com- ments in the brief space allotted me will have to be somewhat general and sketchy. Let us start by looking at some of the special characteristics of the problem as it presents itself to the modern Christian. In the first place, the widespread, constant mobility of families has tended to weaken our sense of community in neighborhood and parish. About 20,000 families change residence every day. During the 1950s, approximately one out of five, or 20 per cent of the population, chang- ed residence each year. This represents roughly 33 million annual movers; over 22 'million mov- ed from one house to another within the city or state. Some city parishes experience over 50 per cent turnover of parishioners every year. FR. THOMAS This frequent moving tends to snap or snarl the intricate web of relationships lending significanee to social life in community or parish. Some families make little effort to become acquainted with even their nextdoor neighbors, since they fear this may lead to undesirable involvements, ur experience has taught them that it is uselessly frustrating to identify too closely with friends and neighborhoods that must be abandoned shortly, or because modern means of communication enable them to select their friends from other communities. A house or place of residence, to be sure, is the physical point of contact through which the family is inserted into a local community of neighborhood, parish and school, but it takes time for communications to be developed, for friendship to be formed, for the new and the strange to become meaningful and familiar, for the family to take roots. Human Relations Depersonalized lthough communities may vary considerably in this re- gard, the new result of the mobility, complexity, and the facility of communication characteristic of modern living has been to segment and depersonalize large sectors of human re- lations. By this I mean that the average must receive services from and interact with such a large number of different people each day that he tends to identify closely with only a selected few, and treats the others more or less impersonally and as of in- terest to himself only as animated suppliers of a specific, need- ed service or function. This is a marked departure from the all-inclusive, personally concerned, warmly human relationships formerly experienced in our less-complex, statie eommunities, and constitutes one as. pact of modern man's much-discussed sense of alienation or feeling of loneliness though living in a crowd. The changed conditions and attitudes I have described, are closely related to your problem. In the busy modern community, we are normally aware only of our friends and those with whom we must deal-the elderly, sick, unemployed, and so on, exist, as it were, along- side of real fife. Moreover, particularly since the Depression, the great in- crease of both voluntary and public organized charity has tend- ed to focus our attention on group action and social problems rather than on personal concern for individual persons. Christian Charity Obligatory et the essential demands of Christian charity remain tin. changed. Organized programs of assistance are indispensable, of course, but they are necessarily limited in coment and reach, and in no way free us from the obligation to be personally con- cerned with the welfare of our neighbors. Because Christ has indentifed Himself with the least one among our neighbors, we must persistently and actively seek Him out in His needs, as His terrifying description of 'the Last Judgment reminds us: "'Depart from me, aeeursed ones' . . . Then they also will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee? Then he will answer them saying, 'Amen I say to you, as long as you did not do it for one of these least ones, you did not do it for me'" (Matt. 25:41-46). Surely the Savior's words are clear enough! Nor do we lack the means, for what He chiefly demands is our personal interest, attention and concern. What we lack is the kinds of deep conviction and keen awareness of our inherently personal obligations in this regard that would move us to develop some ingenuity and insight in discovering the needs of our brethren. But perhaps we are wrong in emphasizing obligation in relation to charity. Since Christ identifies Himself with the least one among those in needs, should we not speak of charity i as privilege? Once we grasp this truth, we can begin to understand why the saints remind us that in helping others, we should serve them humbly, as if we were on our knees to receive a gift.
