16 The Message w for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Continued from page 1 Francois Thibodeau, chairman of the Canadian bishops' Com- mission for Social Affairs, said the bishops support Pope John Paul's position that there was still the possibility of dialogue in the situation. The letter asked Chretien not to side with the policies of the United States and Great Britain in the crisis, but "to continue col- laborating with those working through diplomatic means to implement the resolutions adopt- ed by the United Nations." By doing so, the letter said, "Canada will continue to be a true peacemaker, intent on ren- dering the United Nations more effective," In Australia, reacting to the prime minister's pledge there to support any U.S.-led coali- tion against Iraq, Bishop Kevin M. Manning of Parramatta said any Australian contribu- tion to the use of force against Iraq would be premature and irresponsible. The path of negotiation has not yet been exhausted, said Bishop Manning, chairman of the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council, in a Feb. 9 state- ment. "In order to be morally acceptable, the use of force must be a last resort," he said. "While the government of the United States of America may have lost patience with negotia- tion, it is a serious duty on the part of the international com- munity to find nonviolent solu- tions," Bishop Manning said. "Only grave and immediate danger to the common good can justify the use of force," he added. In Washington, Auxiliary Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton of Detroit was among 26 peo- ple arrested in a Feb. 12 protest outside the White House to protest the contemplated mili- tary campaign. Bishop Gumbleton, who sus- tained a liquids-only fast from Jan. 20 to mid-February to protest ongoing U.N. econom- ic sanctions against Iraq, said during the rally that the 3-year- old grandnephew of Archbish- op Djibrail Kassab of Basra, Iraq, had died as a result of the sanctions. The boy had suffered a bad fall and died in an Iraqi hospi- tal because "there was no way to treat this youngster" due to a lack of supplies resulting from the embargo, Bishop Gumble- ton said. "It's such a terrible, evil tragedy, and it's being perpe- trated against those people by our politicians," he added. The Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, in a Feb. 9 letter to Clinton, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Secre- tary of Defense William Cohen, urged them to abandon plans for a military attack. "The brunt of the embargo has fallen most heavily on the women and children of Iraq," said the letter, signed by the order's leadership team. "In this situation, violence will serve no constructive purpose. This is why we strongly urge you to abandon plans for a military attack on Iraq and seek nonvio- lent It [, fortz destruction person like However, to be anal broader context q politics," failure to ignoring U.N. fives, the "This lack ness jeop in the region demand that same should Israel." -Benedictines give Dome The Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand have honored Joseph W.

He said CUF received word Feb. 4 that the series passed its review. The review committee, headed by Archbishop Daniel M. Buech- lein of Indianapolis, has stressed that its assessment is limited to determining whether the doctri- nal content of a catechetical text or series is in conformity with the "Catechism of the Catholic Church," an official compendi- um of Catholic belief issued by i Ed.

The committee's judgment "isn't an approval or endorse- ment of a series," Father DeVries said. He said the committee does not evaluate a text's education- al methodology or the ease with which it can be used by a teacher or student. He said the committee pub- lishes an updated list in its quar- terly newsletter, Catechism Update, of texts that have so far been reviewed and found in conformity with the official cat- echism.
