The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record-- o I'LL REMEMBER Say g0odbye/Not knowing when/The truth of my whole life begins/Say goodbye/Not knowing how to cry/You taught me that When others offer strength By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST And I'll remember the strength/That you gave me/Now that I'm standing on my own/I'll re- member the way/That you saved me/I'll re- member Inside I was a child/That co.uld not mend a broken wing/Outside I looked for a way/To teach my heart to sing And I'll remember/The love that you gave me/Now that I'm standing on my own/I'll re- member/The way that you changed me/I'll re- member I learned to let go/Of the illusion/That we can both dance/I learned to let go/And to treasure the experienceAnd I'll remember happiness I'll remember Written by Patrick Leonard/M. Ciccone/ Richard Pagel Sung by Madonna Copyright (c) by Sire Records i Madonna's latest release is ti- tled "I'll Remember." The song is off the soundtrack of the soon-to- be-released film, "With Honors." The cassingle showcases Madonna's softer, and in my opin- ion, more talented musical style. I am not aware of how the song fits into the film's theme. However, the song's message can stand on its own: We need to ac- knowledge the positive ways that people touch our lives. The song's story focuses on a relationship that is changing, and perhaps ending. Yet, the woman in the song remembers the goodness that has passed between herself and the other person. She remembers the beginning when "inside I was a child that could not mend a broken wing." Then, she was looking "for a way to teach my heart to sing." Even now, as she learns to "let go of the illu- sion" of what she thought their relationship was, she remembers all the strength and love that she received from this other person. Certainly, change in a relationship can be painful. Yet no matter how a relationship might evolve, you can choose to remember how you were blessed by having this other person in your life. Of course you don't have to wait for some painful change to see and validate these bless- ings from your relationships. Rather, you can ex- press your gratitude for the ways another person's presence uplifts and supports your life. Such efforts can have special meaning for who do things for you without notice. For example, now that we are another school year, how about itude to the school principal? Your : worked to keep your school running smoothly throughout the year. Or, why not write a note of thanks to bus driver, or if you walk to school, to the crossing guards. '  Likewise, school cooks and m often get taken for granted.

Make a weekly plan to tell your life goes better because of what he for you. (Your comments are always address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, port, IN 47635.)

Bluff his way through -- with a little help from Baby, his canine critter who all but steals the movie out from under the human cast. Director Mick Jackson turns in an affable vehicle for Carvey that doesn't deliver nonstop laughs, but manages to make the grade as a light-hearted MOVIE REVIEW By GERRI PARE Catholic News Service NEW YORK (CNS) -- In "Clean Slate" (MGM), Dana Carvey plays a private eye without a clue -- since he's lost his memory. Each morning he plays a tape he's made the night before to remind him that he is a Cal- ifornia gumshoe named Pogue, with a mysterious femme-fa- tale client, Sarah (Valeria Golino). It seems she was pre- sumed murdered by a mobster (Michael Gambon) against whom Pogue is scheduled to testify -- if he could only re- member what he witnessed. Tben there is the priceless rare coin Sarah foolishly gave Pogue for safekeeping .... What's a stand-up slueth like Pogu to do when he falls romp. The plot itself is pretty silly, but Carvey is amusing when he pretends to know who he is or what he's supposed to do. He is enjoyably idiotic in one scene when he stumbles onto a stage where he must deliver' a slide lecture -- though he knows not the topic. Carvey is appealing but Barkley runs circles around him. He's the Jack Russell ter- rier that plays Baby, sporting an eye patch and doggedly de- For more information about CTNA, contact Paul R.
