10 View D 00int The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana January 11, 1991 By FATHER JOSEPH L. ZILIAK Associate Publisher Put away wrappings and open up yourself The decorations around our church property came down this week. Lights were carefully wrapped and put away. Statues were returned to boxes and stored until late December. It's a bit sad. The lights brightened and beautified the view at night. The shrubs and trees near the length of the rectory were outlined in the tiny white lights. The outdoor crib and figures were placed in front of the rectory this year instead of alongside the church. The scene was more visible as people drove past us on Frame Road. The three kings and their camels journeyed from over near the tree to the crib in the course of the past two weeks. A single-word sign will remain above the en- trance to the church and school for a while. "Peace" is spelled out in lights. It is a plea from our hearts to God, an encouragement and reminder to passersby, an image of hope for the doubtful. Inside the church the three kings just made it to the crib this past Sunday and they are already put away for the year. Their time in the sun was severely limited. The decorations inside the house also were put Bishop Shea, other bishops urge test ban ERIE, Pa. CCNS) --Twenty- / one U.S. bishops who are members of Pax Christi USA, including retired Bishop Fran- cis R. Shea of Evansville, have sent a letter to three world leaders asking them to support a comprehensive nuclear test ban. The letter was sent in December to President George Bush, Soviety leader Mikhail Gorbachev and British Prime Minister John Major. It was released Dec. 21 by Pax Christi USA, a national Catholic peace organization based in Erie. The letter urged the leaders to support an amendment to the 1963 Partial Test Ban Treaty that was expected to be con- sidered by representatives of 118 nations at a test ban treaty conference at the United Na- tions in January. The amendment would con- vert the 27-year-old partial test ban treaty into a comprehensive test ban treaty. All signatory na- tions would be expected to cease nuclear test explosions. While the United States has opposed such an amendment, the Soviet Union has expressed support for it. The Soviets, however, broke a yearlong moratorium with an underground test blast Oct. 25 near the Arctic Circle. They blamed the continuing U.S. program for their action. An amemndment to the 1991 defense bill recently passed by Congress asks Bush to support talks favoring a full test ban. I Main Street 217 E. Main St. - Downtown Washington Phone: 254-5141 away this week. The tree was given by a parishioner. It was cut just before Christmas and was still fresh as it exited the house. No needles on the floor. I suppose each of us reacts a little differently to these small and minor transitions in life. I find it a bit sad to put the ornaments and decorations away. Some have been with me a few years now. Some were picked up from countries far away. Most of the items have a special little story of origin. Many are associated with special people in my life. It's like boxing up portions of my life for another year. It's at such times that I tend to look inward a bit mare. ] came across an article last week that seemed significant for thought. The article by Jim Auer in the January issue of "The Liguorian" dealt with self esteem and self respect. The concept is quite universal, quite apropos of a time of self evaluation, and quite proper for young people as they seek a decent understanding of how they function. After all, how can we feel that we are loved by God if we are not so sure Golden jubilarians Charles and Eleonora (Taylor) Postletheweight of Evansville will celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary with a Mass of Thanksgiving at 12:15 p.m. Jan. 20 at Holy Rosary Church, Evansville.

Cannelburg * 4 mi. E. of Montgomery Ph. 812-295-4299 about ourselves. We are prone to do strange things if we do not have a healthy self-respect. The author offers several key questions. The answer we give will provide insight into our own posture and attitude. The first question is As you see it, is life fairly good or pretty rotten? Our view of the world is often a rather fair indicator of how we view ourselves. Tragedies or major crises aside, those who see good in themselves will generally see good in the world. The second question is How do you talk about other people? If a large percent of the statements are putdowns, it may be that we may be talking more about ourselves than others. A third question is Are there things in your life that you hide from almost everybody? Either there is something really destructive present, ar we don't believe strongly enough in ourselves to say SO. Be strong. Be daring. Remember that Jesus conquered sin, fear and death.
