12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Love thaws a frozen heart By CHARLIE MARTIN Catholic New Service FROZEN You only see/What your eyes want to see./How can life be/What you want it to be?/You're frozen/When your heart's not open./You're so consumed/With how much you getdYou waste your time/With hate and regret./You're broken/When your heart's not open. REFRAIN Hmm if I could melt your heart./Hmm we'd never be apart./Hmm give yourself to me./Hmm you hold the key. Now there's no point/In placing the blame/And you should know/I suffer the same./If I lose you/My heart will be broken./Love is a bird/She needs to fly/Let all the hurt/Inside of you die./You're frozen/When your heart's not open. (REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE) Written by Madonna/Patrick Leonard Sung by Madonna THE CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN i 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 Hit" (TriStar) Repulsive action comedy in which a hit man (Lou Diamond Phillips) turns on his partner i i Copyright (c) 1998, WB Music Corp./Webo Girl Pub- lishing Inc., Admin. by WB Music Corp./No Tomato Music ASCAP Is there a new Madonna? Reviewers of her new CD "Ray of Light" suggest the former material girl has evolved into the spiritual woman. I doubt Madonna has become a Christian rocker, but I like "Frozen," the first cassingle on "Ray of Light." The song begins by describing someone whose life is empty, deceptive and selfish. It says, "You only see what your eyes want to see" rather than the truth. "You waste your time with hate and regret" the song says, while being consumed "with how much you get." Consequently this individual's soul is "frozen" because "your heart's not open." The song does not tell us why and how the per- son became this way. Perhaps considerable emotional hurt made him bitter and cynical. Pain and disappointment can do this to any of us. If this occurs, our spiritual challenge is to recognize what has happened and discover ways to thaw our frozen heart. If we are fortunate there will be a friend like the one described in the song. Genuine caring can thaw a frozen heart. Enduring and committed caring can even heal the memories behind the pain. (Mark Wahlberg) when a kid- napping they engineered goes murderously awry. Director Che-Kirk Wong depicts vicious murders as dangerously glam- orous deeds performed by macho heroes. Excessive, jokey violence, implied promiscuity and sexual references, brief nudity and non-stop rough lan- guage. The USCC classification is O -- morally offensive. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted.
