Before the bishop on hands in .n ordained age writer, editor among Catholic Press Association award winners Message and Paul R. Lein- tg e editor, were named Press Assoeia- Convention in Los first place ature" category, circulation of ges described writer and a at,'. for her award-winning story about a man with no arms or legs. "There were a lot of ways to tell the story about a quadru- ple.amputee," the judges said. "The daily act of living, eating, driving and moving about would havebeen intensely in- teresting. But Mary Ann Hughes used a more dynamic approach -- a conversation be- tween the quadriplegic and a child with a hook in place of a hand. Through that exchange between the child and the man, Hughes set the stage for us to understand, and learn, from someone who has used overwhelming adversity to re- alize his full potential. Yet the article was upbeat, not maudlin. She portrayed a man worthy of being a role model one with quite a message for our youth. The story ends with a strong message when the man reveals his secret: 'First, I like myselE Second, I set my goals, and third, I go after them.' The message was a fit- ting end to the story. Hughes is a good writer and a feeling storyteller. It was an alluring story full of positive messages about life and living, about how what most would perceive as being a handicap is actually an opportunity to realize one's full potential. It was a neat twist -- those without handi- caps are in a sense handi- capped because of it. Hughes did an excellent job relating that message." Leingang re- ceived second place in the cate- gory, "The Year of the Family," open to all member newspapers. Judges described his column, "Tak- ing the Time to Make a Differ- ence," as "not just superior writ- ing, but a resource for readers." The judges said that the regular weekly column "offers real ad- vice for real family challenges" and that the columns "were full of good ideas." Awards for newspapers, magazines, books and Spanish language entries were pre- 'Not just superior writing, but a resource for readers: sented at an awards banquet, at the conclusion of the three- day conference. Leingang at- tended the conference and ac- cepted the awards on behalf of the Message. Newspapers honored for general excellence, in their re- spective circulation divisions, were the National Catholic Reporter, the St. Louis Re. view, the Catholic Herald of Superior. Wis., and The Catholic Transcript of Hartford, Conn. El Heraldo Catolico of Sacra- mento, Calif., re* ceived first place for general excel- lence among Span- ish language newspapers. An updating of a 1980 book on Catholicism and a new one- volume Catholic encyclopedia tied for first place for popular presentation of the Catholic faith in the Catholic Press As- sociation's 1995 book awards. The judges said Father Richard P. McBrien had "'per- formed a wonderful service for all Catholics" by completely re- vising his "'Catholicism," pub- lished by Harper San Fran- cisco. They praised "'The Modern Catholic Encyclope- dia," edited by Michael Glazier and Monika K. Hellwig, as "" an impressive publishing achieve- ment, not only in terms of con- tent, but also in design and ap- peal." It was published by Liturgical Press/Michael Glazier Books. America, a weekly magazine published in New York by the Jesuits of the United States and Canada, won first place for general excellence amohg gen- eral-interest magazines. St. Anthony Messenger, a monthly magazine published in Cincin- nati by Franciscan friars and last year's first-place winner, finished second for general ex- cellence among general-inter- est magazines. Liguorian, a monthly publication of the Re- demptorist Fathers, took third, and Notre Dame Magazine, published four times a year by the University of Notre Dame, received an honorable mention,
