February 16, 1990 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 115 . Sister Continued from page 2 S!ster Bastnagel faced con- SUmerism and materialism on a daily basis. She discussed the clash between her chosen life and the secular environment. "It's real life," she affirmed, "(But) I really am committed. My mission in life is to pro- claim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ and to serve , Christ in the person of the poor. That's what I am all about. Now if I can keep that mission very clear in my mind, then I won't get caught up in (the world)." What does it take to remain firm in One's mission? "I have to be grounded in prayer, I need at, I can't get along without it, I know that," she said with by saying that these goals can be accomplished by nlany dif- ferent vocations, whether mar- ried, single or religious. "You really have to get something in your mind and be committed, and if that isn't where you're supposed to be you will find out." Not only are the Daughters of Charity in the world, however, they are also committed to responding as sensitively as possible to those in need. "There will be different kinds of poor," explained Sister Bastnagel, "and that's what we keep looking for. 'What do we have now?' AIDS, we didn't have that before. Refugees, tions of poverty are different worldwide, commented Sister Bastnagel. That is why the order comes together every six years to reassess their ministries. She will attend an international general assembly of the Visitatrixes and represen- tatives of the Daughters of Charity in May. They will gather for six weeks of discus- sions. "Our topic is 'The Daughter of Charity in and for the world of today.' " The role of the religious to- day, Sister Bastnagel believes, is also a current topic of discus- sion, not just for her order but for many religious of today. Sister Bastnagel foresees in- creased collaboration with terdependence with each other," she stated. "I see this happening." Sister Bastnagel is also ex- cited about the events of the world in the recent past. "What is happening in the w9rld is wonderful. The Berlin Wall, the Soviet Union. We have a lot to be grateful for. But without be- ing pietistic, we have to work towards holiness, we have to talk more about values. It was disturbing to me whenever Connie Chung the other night said what most characterized 1989. Greed." Sister Bastnagel, however, re- mains hopeful that the tide of current events will continue in sureness. "I should be working lepers, we are getting more in- other religious orders in the the direction of peaceful set- toward holiness." Again she volved in abused women. Peo- future.

St. Vin- cent said that the poor are our lords and masters and if you think of it this way it's a great privilege."

Synod Continued from page 1 the entire Archdiocese." The vision expressed for the Archdiocese of Miami acknowledged the importance of evangelizatiou. The People of God are "gathered in order to' be sent," is the vision described in the foreword of a book enti: tied "Walking Together 1985-1988." The book chronicles the history of the archdiocese which was established in 1958, and also contains the decrees of the first synod convened in Miami. "We recognize evangeliza- tion as the essential mission of the Church, the foundation that ties all ministry together," wrote Archbishop Edward A. McCarthy. Documents in New York and Miami both refer to a synod as an "instrument of renewal." The diocesan synod dates from the fourth century, and flourished in the Middle Ages. The 1917 Code of Canon Law mandated a synod every 10 years in each diocese, but in many areas of the world synods were not convened with such frequency. The 1983 Code does not specify how often a bishop should Convene a diocesan synod. Previously, a synod was strictly clerical, but the 1983 Code defined a synod as "a group of selected priests and other Christian faithful of a par- ticular church which offers assistance to the diocesan bishop for the good of the entire diocesan community."
