The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana April 23, -- On The Record- " Work to turn hope into reality ANGEL By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST I carry the future/And still want . to hold you close/Right now I need that from you/So give the morning/Sharing another day with you/Is all I want to know (REFRAIN And baby, I tried to forget you/But the light of your eyes still shines/You shine like an angel/A spirit that won't let go I did want to tell you/The things I don't want to know myself/Was afraid to show/You gave me a reason/Reasmi to face the truth/Oh yes you did To face the truth,/Face the truth, face the truth (REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE) Written by Ion Secada and Miguel A. Morejon Sung by Jon Secada Copyright (c) 1992 by FBK Records As the saying goes, "When you're hot you're hot!" And Jon Secada is sizzling when it comes to music. "Angel" is his third straight release to reach the charts off his debut disc. The combination of piano, strings and Secada's outstanding vocal ability take this i recording to"hit" status. The song describes the power of hope. For the guy in the song, his girl is an "angel" who "gave me a reason .... to face the truth." The song doesn't clarify the current state of their relation- ship. Yet it is clear that his idea of the future in- cludes the desire "to hold you close" while "sharing another day with you." Could this "truth" be something painful about himself or perhaps a way that he has acted which hurt his girlfriend or their love? If so, then this song builds hope that we can move beyond those problems that spill over into our relationships. For example, what if the "truth" has to do with the guy's lack of direction in life. This girl might hesitate to get involved with a guy who lacks purpose and self-motivation. Being hooked up with someone who is just drifting through life doesn't lead to the satisfac- tion and meaning that most people seek in a long-term relationship. Yet, if a relationship becomes dear to us, we are more likely to examine these behaviors that are sabotaging love. This doesn't imply that we should change just to please someone else. In fact, the best genuine motivation for change al- , iii  ways comes from within. However, we may live in denial of our pr0b-: lems until something or someone is about to b0 lost. Faced with the possibility of loss, we grow in awareness of the truth of our behavior. We canl no longer have it both ways. Either we work i: change or encounter significant loss and hurt. When this is the case, name directly is about yourself that must change. Bring into your life who will help you change. their guidance and support. Design a clear plan about how this will occur. However, be realistic. There are no wands, so the only alternative is patient and sistent effort, including how you can learn those occasions when you fail to reach your new goal. Most of us need "angels" in our lives us become more the person we want to be. Whether this angel is a parent or a trusted sibling, friend or dating partner, his or her brings out the best in us, Our part is to do the work that turns hope: into reality.

Reviews of recently released movies NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Confer- ence Office for Film and Broadcasting. "The Adventures of Huck Finn" Spirited rendition of Mark Twain's tale of an irrepress- ibly mischievous lad {Elijah Wood) rafting down the Mis- sissippi with a runaway slave (Courtney B. Vance) until a brush with disaster when they become involved with a pair of colorful con men (Robbie Coltrane and Jason Robards}.

Religious groups are work- ing to help refugees who flee their homes to escape civil strife and human rights violations. "Strangers in Town: The New Refugees" tells some of the stories of the new refugees -- and the lan- guage assistance, day care, job assistance, health care and other assistance reli- gious groups are providing. The program will be broad- cast by CBS affiliate WEHT I II I II i i I II Pharmacy 3700 Bellemea Avenue Phone 477-1532 Donald Gutzweiler C-Wlde Deery TV 25 on Sunday morning, April 25, at 6:30 a.m. "Strangers in Town" was produced by CBS in coop: eration with the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission, which is composed of rep- resentatives from the United States Catholic Con- ference, the National Coun- cil of Churches, the South- ern Baptist Radio and Television Commission, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and the New York Board of Rabbis. Ill II i rected by Stephen Sommers, the zestful performance of the young Wood brightens the fast-moving, handsomely mounted production that makes abundantly clear its anti-slavery stance. Some menace and stylized vio- lence. The U.S. Catholic Con- ference classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Associa- tion of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. "Indecent Proposal" (Paramount) Trite romantic triangle in- volves a wealthy stranger (Robert Redford) who pays a cash-strapped married couple (Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson) a million dollars to sleep with the wife for one night, then continues his ro- mantic pursuit of the woman as her marriage crumbles. Di- rector Adrian Lyne's a thor- oughly transparent and sus- penseless movie revolves around cardboard characters who rationalize their every act without ever considering the moral dimensions of their behavior. Materialistic view of life, brief bedroom scene, fleeting nudity and occa- sional rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. "Leolo" (Fine Line) A dreamy young boy (Maxime Collin) growing up in a strict Montreal family plagued by mental illness es- capes his troubled surround- ings by acting out murderous and sexual fantasies before going completely over the edge. Writer-director Jean- Claude Lauzon's self-indul- gent and ugly view of life makes almost no human con- nections and gains added re- pulsion when seen through a child's eyes. Subtitles. Fierce murderous attacks, sexual perversions, some nudity, very crude toilet humor and rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifi- cation is O -- morally offen- sive.
