The Message Monthly w for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana March ---On The Record --- Take time to change your life NEVER A TIME There is never a time to say/'Cause it seems to me that we've lost our way/So we carry on down the road/And we live our lives haunted by/All the things we say and do/Keep on missing when I'm alone with you By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST No there's never a time to change/You don't get a chance to rearrange/It's a long, long way to go Just to find out something we both know/It's so sad that a love so strong has gone All I know what is true/All I ask is for you to Just look around and see/You and your life locked in a dream/When nothing is real/And not what it seems/We can't go on another day/Just being afraid to say/it's a long way to fall/When we both thought we had it all/Well you know it's time to say/'Cause we're all played out, we've lost our way/Oh I hoped that it would be/Oh so understanding/And by now you'd see/That oh no/So sad, so sad/That's the way it goes/I know, I'm going to tell you right now Written by Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford Sung by Genesis Copyright (c) 1991, 1986 by Banks, Collins and Rutherford, and Hit and Run Publishing Ltd. i How many hits can a group get off one album? I don't know the record, but Genesis must be getting close. "Never a Time" marks their fifth entry onto the charts from their "We Can't Dance" disc. The song is a guy's lament over what is happening in his romance. He asks the girl to come out of her dream world. In frus- tration he asks her, Can't you see what's going on? He tells her, "It's so sad that a love so strong has gone." Perhaps this girl is like most of us in that we prefer not to look at the truth when it hurts. We minimize the pain or deny that the situation is as discouraging as it is. Yet, through seeing reality as it is we initiate steps toward constructive change. This is true, whether our disappointment be about a relation- ship or anything else in life. Contrary to what the song states, there is "a time to change," and "a chance to rearrange" sit- uations. As a pastoral counselor, I've seen teens look at the pain in their lives and begin the process of rebuilding self-satisfaction and happiness. Here are some questions to consider when your life needs some rearranging. 1. What do I really want in my life? The question sounds so simple. Yet it de- mands that we listen to our thoughts and feel- ings, clarifying our vision of what will bring us enduring happiness. When answering this question, don't too far ahead. Focus on your life during the six months. 2. Does what I'm doing currently match with my goals for happiness as clarified by first question? This question is also difficult because quires honesty. Make a list of your actions in each important aspect of your life. If you need someone to help you be ask a trusted friend to assist you in making a thorough description of your behaviors. Then evaluate each of these behaviors in li real goals. 3. What is truly in ny power to change? Work on yourself, not others. you can't make someone else want to date but you can set the goal to meet more new pie you could date. 4. What help do I need to reach my Primary in this step is reaching out to to seek his guidance. Pray that you might to these people or situations that can you to establish a more satisfying life. Whether your new plan is directed major changes or is just a fine-tuning current life, "a chance to rearrange" is yours. Start today to seek the happiness that deserve and that God wants you to have.

The program explores four countries -- Poland, Lithua- nia, Slovakia and Hungary and examines the relation- ship that each country had with its communist-con- trolled government. In Poland, where more than g0 percent of the population is Catholic, the Church was the defender of human rights and liberty under the commu- nist regime. Today, some be- lieve the Church should "stay out of politics." In Hungary, churches, con- vents and religious orders were closed and spiritual life suffered. The program pro- files the base community Reg- num Marianum, which pro- vided in private homes a weekly outlet for those who WiSheS to deepen their faith during difficult times. Segments of the program also show Sister Nijole Sadunaite, who was called "the most dangerous person in Lithuania," and cardinal Korec of the newly formed Republic of Slovakia. The Lithuanian Hill of Crosses stands as a dramatic of the Catholic Church's endurance through decades persecution.
