Block/Sister Hazel Sung by Sister Hazel Copyright (c) 1997 by Universal Records Inc. I like Sister Hazel's straight rock, acoustic guitar sound. The guy in the group's chart hit "All For You" appears to be trying to decide whether he should leave a relationship. He says, "Finally I figured it out." Even though there have been times when he was "so confused," he "just can't turn and walk away." Yet he also says that "it's hard to say what it is I see in you." He wonders "if I'll always be with you." However, as for now, "words can't say, and I can't do enough to prove it's all for you." Not exactly a well-thought-out statement there of why he wants to stay! If you ever face this type of decision, I hope you will be more clear about why you want to stay or leave. But what factors need to be considered in order to achieve such clarity? While there is no complete checklist on which to base such a decision, the fol- lowing questions can help you think through your situation:- 1. How old are you?

Charlie Martin, 7125W 200S, Rockport, THE CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION NEW YORK (CNS) -- The fol- lowing are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference (USCC) Office for Film and Broadcasting. Ratings are also given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "The Big Lebowski" (Gramercy) Leaden, foul-mouthed come- dy in which a shiftless character (Jeff Bridges) and his volatile buddy (John Goodman) are duped into a kidnapping scam involving a variety of claimants to the ransom money. Co-writ- ten by director Joel Coen with his brother Ethan, the picture focuses on an unsavory collec- tion of self-obsessed Los Ange- les eccentrics whose mindless antics are more aggravating than amusing. Stylized violence, recreational substance abuse, an implied Sexual encounter, brief nudity, some profanity and con- stant rough language. The USCC classification is O -- - morally offensive. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Krippendorf's Tribe" (Touchstone) Dreadful comic misfire in which an anthropologist (Richard Dreyfuss) squanders his six-fig- ure research grant, then pre- tends to have discovered an unknown primitive tribe by filming his children in bogus puberty rituals. Directed by Todd Holland, the crass come- dy has the whole family happi- ly profiting from their dishon- esty and feeling smug about it. Positive view of major theft, fraud, constant lying and a one- night stand as well as crude sexual references and an instance of profanity. The USCC classification is O N morally offensive. The MPAA rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for chil- dren under 13. "Men with Guns" (Sony Classics) Powerful drama of a troubled Latin American country where an idealistic physician (Federico Luppi) sets out to visit the novice doctors he had trained to care for Europe influenced by St. Patrick's ministry Saint Patrick, by Ann Tom- pert, illustrated by Michael Gar- land. Boyds Mills Press, 815 Church St., Honesdale, PA 18431, 1998. Hardbound, 32 full-color illustrated pages, $14.95. BOOK REVIEW By MARY ETrA KIEFER, O.S.B. Message staff This handsome children's book tells the adventures of the famous Irish saint. He was real, and the influence of his ministry reached across Europe. The striking illustrations that accent Saint Patrick are intense color portrayals of exciting moments in the text. Tompert has told the story of the fourth-century itinerant evangelist without any lep- rechauns, She touches on the legend of driving snakes out of Ireland, but it's only a mention. Saint Patrick was born in Britain, stolen by Irish raiders and made a slave in Ireland. He escaped after six years, return- ing to his family in Britain, where he became a priest and bishop. He then returned to Ire- land and worked for nearly 30 years, converting kings, nobles and people of Ireland to the Christian faith, simply through inspired teaching and persua- sion. Patrick died in 461, but hun- dreds of years later, Irish monks spread out all over northern and central Europe, undergirding I II the faith of all the northern European nations. How refreshing to read a book that tells children the real story of a beloved saint. Seen through Tompert's eyes, the substance of Saint Patrick's life is much more valuable than the legend depicts. Indeed, most of us are unaware of his gifts to the modern Church. This book would make a fine gift for a child. About the author and the illustrator:.
