6 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Advice to the class of 1998: Act on WASHINGTON (CNS) -- As graduates in the Class of 1998 at Catholic colleges and univer- sities stepped forward to receive their diplomas, they headed into the future urged by peacemakers and policy-mak- ers to seek success based on Catholic values. A Nobel Peace Prize nominee came to inspire Loyola College in Baltimore graduates with sto- ries of suffering and triumph. An Irish leader awaiting the outcome of a referendum that could end "the troubles" in Northern Ireland encouraged Boston College graduates to give selfless public service. And the cardinals who lead the faithful of Chicago and Philadel- phia exhorted graduates to act courageously on their faith. Ohio Congressman Tony Halt advised 767 graduates of Loy- ola College not to be disheart- ened by the complex world they'll face. "Ignoring the problems, or hardening your heart to them, or letting them overwhelm you, won't make your life any better -- and it will make our world much worse," he said May 16 at the Maryland college. "I hope that, instead, you will pick a problem that interests II I I I WILLIAMS BROS. HEALTH CARE "Your Health Care ProfessionaLs" Charles C. Williams, R.Ph, Jeffrey W. Williams, R.Ph Mark A.

I hope you will find a way to fit it into your paying jobs, into your free time, into your spiri- tual life -- into who you are," said Hall, a 1998 Nobel Peace Prize nominee and advocate for alleviating world hunger. Hall told the graduates how faith transformed his life. "In so many ways, faith guided me to the work that I consider my top priority -- next to serving the Ohioans I represent in Con- gress," he said. That faith led him to visit Ethiopia and Angola during famines. It will take him to Sudan later in May and it took him to Calcutta where he walked with Mother Teresa, "a hero of mine," as she ministered to a sick man lying in a gutter. In Ireland, people are waiting for history to happen. Prime Min- ister Bertie Ahem told Boston College's graduates how the negotiations leading to the Good Friday Agreement came about.

He praised the hard work of those who hammered out the accord, especially former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell, who spent two years as chairman of the negotiations -- even though it meant time away from his wife and new son. "In these increasingly cynical times, it is good to remember that there are still many people pre- pared to give of themselves in this way," Ahem said. "As you go out from here to make your mark in the world, I can think of no finer example to offer you of selfless public service." Cardinal Francis E. George of Chicago urged The Catholic University of America's 1,600 graduates May 16 to allow God to guide them into the new mil- lennium. "Your education has been planned for you to act," he said. "If you do not, people will say, 'What a waste. He or she had so much talent and preparation, and nothing happened.' And they would be right."

"Because like Francis, each one of you are made from the same thing, the cloth of Chris- tian faith." "I think this is the most excit- ing time in the history of the world to be graduating from a great university," said Jack Kemp, former congressman and now co-director of a public pol- icy group Empower America, at Marymount University's com- mencement May 10.
