10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana By FATHER JOSEPH ZILIAK We live very protected and sheltered lives. Spoiled is what many of our brothers and sisters in our own country and others might well say of us. We leave uneaten food on our plates. We complain about not having the right brand name for our clothing. We are consumed with desire to purchase the most "in" auto of the year. On and on we go with our list of "I want" or "1 have to have." Our insatiable demand for goods, things and possessions is a potential source of self disaster. Where does it all end?

McCarrick returned on Feb. 10 from a visit to Croatia and Bosnia. Father Thomas H. Stahel, S.J., interviewed him.

"At a certain point, a U.N. soldier comes out and un- loads the passengers, and very briskly you run with him into the airport to avoid sniper fire and anything like that. "You then have to pass a second test to see if they will now bring you into the city. You can go in only in an armoured personnel carrier. It was about a three-mile run along the no-man's land. They bring you into the central post office of Sarajevo, a squat building surrounded by sand- bags. "Just about an hour before we came, 100 yards from the post office a woman walking with a child was killed by a sniper, The chief of the U.N. commission promised us a soft-skinned car to get to the archbishop's residence. 'I want to warn you this fellow will drive like hell.' If you drive slowly, you just get yourself lined up in sniper fire.

Called the Susan B. An- thony List, the bipartisan committee was developed to provide early money for the political campaigns of pro- life women at the national and state levels. The list "was formed to "People were saying: 'We have do something. How do we stop the causes that lead to abortion?"' she said.

"We want to help women who care about bettering women's circumstances, who care about educating women about making life affirming choices get into public of- rices," she said at the pro- groin's kickoff in Washington. Mathewes-Green said, "Susan B. Anthony was vo- cally pro- She saw that women have abortion, not be- cause they think it's the best choice, but because they have no choices."
