While the song's intent is directed toward U. S, military personnel, it is easy to extend the message to all who suffered in this international tragedy. Unfortunately, the governments of our planet have yet to accept Jesus message of non-violence and respect for all life. Instead, conflicts are set- tled by the terror of modern weapons. and illness trouble so many of our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters. Each of us can help by donat- ing generously to agencies bringing aid to those still caught in the aftermath of the war. Two such organizations are the Inten]ational Red Cross and Catholic Relief Services. 2. The sin of war is also a sin against our planet. Few of us have the opportunity to help clean up the ecological devastation. However, we can donate money made through recycling efforts here at home. Why not help two causes at once working to improve your local environment and sending any funds gained to those working with the mess in Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Kuwait. 3.

LEINGANG Message Editor "Priestless Parishes: A Priests' Perspective" is the title of a telebriefing being provided by the Catholic Telecommunications Net- work of America and the communications office of the Catholic Diocese of National Federation of Priests' Councils. Work on that report was begun in 1989, when a committee was formed by the NFPC Board to study the phenomenon of Eu- charistless parishes from a priest's perspective. Committee members con- suited with the Theological Society of America, the ed States. They also gathered materials at two NFPC con- ventions. Featured on the program will be Father Joseph Brink, NFPC president, and Father Denis Herren, a member of the NFPC Board Committee on Priestless Parishes. Priests, pastoral associates, religious are invited to attend parishioners and others who share concerns in this matter, especially those experiencing a priestless parish and also those "who see it approach- ing." Among the topics to be pre- sented are the role of the Sun- day celebrations of Eucharist in the Roman Catholic tradi- tion, the difference between the celebration of the Eu- charist and the reception of communion, ordination and the role of orders, and pas- toral and sacramental min- istry.

A book review: "A Crisis of Hope in the Modern World," by Edward Wojcicki. The front cover of Edward Wojcickrs book promises that the book will discuss obsta- cles to hope, challenges to hope and reasons to hope. The book delivers what it promises. In the foreword, Henri J. Nouwen terms the book "a truly pastoral work" which "touches our wounds careful- ly and never condemns." Nouwen adds, "it helps us to look compassionately at our own weaknesses as well as the weaknesses of others, and, most of all, it states clearly and unambiguously that we have a choice to make, a choice to hope." Wojcicki is a friend, a man I first met when he worked for a secular newspaper and I worked in television and radio news. His decisiori to become editor of a Catholic newspaper helped me to make .up . mgv',, ,,.taJfe. 0, up range of the institutional church. I have been aware, from a distance, of a small portion of the process Wojcicki has gone through. I am convinced that his experience is similar to the experiences of many who are called to be "lay persons in the church." Reading his book adds abundant example and detail to his personal wit- ness. Wojcicki is, even at close range, a person of hope. Wojcickrs call for hope is not preachy, but personal. His writing is clear and straightforward, allowing the reader an entrance into his soul. Wojcicki is a journalist who lets the reader see with his eyes as he peers into the church evolving toward the next millennium. Others may see mistakes, apathy, bitter- ness or cynicism -- all treat- ed in chapters of the book. Wojcicki has another view, expressed clearly in an open- ing challenge: The book is dedicated, "To ,,nyone with a spark of hope; "A Crisis of Hope in the Modern World," by Edward Wojcicki, published by The Thomas More Press, 205 West Monroe Street, Chicago, IL 60606-5097.
