By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST SO MUCH IN LOVE As we stroll along together/Holding hands walk- ing all alone/So in love are we two/That we don't know what to do/So in love/In a world of our own As we walk by the sea together/Under the stars twinkling high above/So in love are we two/No one else but me and you/So in love/So much in love/So in love/So much in love We stroll along together I tell you love/I love you my darling/And you tell me in my touch/As we walk down the aisle together/We will vow to be together till we die/So in love are we two/Just can't wait to say I do/So in love/in a world of our own/So in love are you and I (Spoken) I hope that you realize/That you mean so much to me/You are everything ever wanted in a woman/I just want to hold you in my arms forever/I love you REPEAT THIRD VERSE So in love/So in love/So in love Written by Jackson/Streigis/Williams Sung by A11-4-0ne Copyright (c) 1993 by Brookhill Records Corp. i Two months ago, I reviewed Phil Collin's hit "Everyday." I used the song's theme to explore three qualities of love. Recently, I got a mailing from the eighth- gradeclass of Sacred Heart School in West Des Moines, Iowa. One of their teachers used that column as a focus for a discussion on love and romance. As part of this discussion, the students were asked to write a response to me about what makes love genuine and lasting. Through the kindness of this teacher, who sent me several of the students' essays, I now can share some of their insights with you. I do this in the context of reviewing All-4- one's a capella release "So Much in Love." The song is a tribute to how romance uplifts our feel- ings and empowers our dreams. Yet, love needs to be built on more than emo- tion. Feelings can change easily and quickly. Love requires other sources if it is to survive the fluctuations of emotion. When trying to decide if your romance is based on more than feeling, consider these com- ments from the students at Sacred Heart School: Comment 1. "I, like many of my friends, have engaged in what we thought were relationships. Now, looking back, I have realized that these were not what they were at all. They were learn- ing experiences that have helped me understand more about love. I feel this is all right at this stage of life because you must learn to love. It just doesn't happen." Comment 2. "I think respect is very important in a serious relationship. You have to respect who you date, respect his or her feelin you have this respect for others, you will also have the trust to keep building the relationship." Comment 3. "I think that a shared spirituality is the most important quality in experiencing love. You need respect and trust for love, but to share a part in the church with God helps you meet the challenges in a relationship. No one else but your" selves and God can get you through the hard Comment 4. "If I were to have a romantic 10re; these would be some of the main features lationship that would help to make us very close: trust, respect, loyalty, good communication, ness to listen, common interests and the place the other person first. A relationship like is not easy to reach. Both people must be wi llingt sacrifice for the other person." Such insights offer us much to think we name an attraction "love." What our us always remains important. Add to this emotional information the qualities mentioned by these students. (Special : Note: My thanks to the students of Sacred Heart School. Perhaps your school class or religious tion group would like to share thoughts about a topic discussed in one of my columns.)

USCC offers capsule reviews of current movi NEW YORK (CNS) -- The fol- lowing are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broadcasting. "The Boys of St. Vincent" (Alliance) Fictional dramatization of fact-based events in Canada centers on a Catholic orphan- age run by religious brothers who sexually molest the young- sters in their care but, because of a coverup, it is not until 15 years later that they are brought to trial. Shown origi- nally as a two-part, four-hour TV program, the 1992 Cana- dian production directed by John N. Smith is a powerful in- dictment of those who abuse positions of trust as well as a sensitive, nonexploitative por- trayal of the damage done their victims and the commu- nity, with convincing perfor- mances by a fine cast headed by Henry Czerny as the tor- mented chief offender. Strong fare but responsibly treated, relying on suggestion rather than graphic depiction of the sexual abuse of minors, with much pent-up emotional churn- ings, some outbursts of violence and occasional profanity. The U.S. Catholic Conference classi- fication is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture As- sociation of America. Washington Auto Trim 27 Years Service "The Cowboy Way" (Uni- versal) Witless comic adventure of two rodeo stars (Woody Harrel- son and Kiefer Sutherland) in New York City on the trail of the vicious killer (Dylan Mc- Dermott) who has murdered their buddy and kidnapped his daughter. Director Gregg Champion's slack handling of the chases and shootouts in the derivative plot is made worse by Harrelson's clumsy overact- ing. Intermittent violence, brief bedroom scene with rear nudity and an instance of rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. The Mo- tion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- par- ents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappro- priate for children under 13. "The Endless Summer II" (New Line) Joyous sequel to the classic 1966 surfer documentary about the search for the perfect wave shows off the new wave of world class surfers (notably Pat O'Connell and Robert "Wingnut" Weaver) as they hang 10 in the surf off the var- ied coastlines of Alaska, Costa Rica, Biarritz, South Africa, Brisbane and Bali. Director Bruce Brown's sometimes corny narration can't dampen his love of the sport in this lengthy but always upbeat, often humorous and hand- somely shot tribute to the art of surfing. Fleeting shots of topless bathers. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A- II -- adults and ado- lescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. "Renaissance Man" (Touchstone) Appealing comedy-drama in which a jobless adman (Danny DeVito) hired by the Army to teach basic English skills to semiliterate recruits succeeds in getting them to read Shake- speare, despite interference from their skeptical drill sergeant (Gregory Hines). Di- rector Penny Marshall main- tains a consistent level of gen- uine humor throughout a CTNA: What's available CTNA What Catholics Believe m an entirely new series of pro- grams -- will be available on the Catholic Telecommunications Network of America, starting June 28. The series of 25 half- hour programs will be transmit- ted each Tuesday at 6 p.m. CT. "The teachings, by Father William M. Carr of Wichita, Kansas, are up-to-date and prd- gressive, yet solidly orthodox and faithful to the teaching au- thority of the Church," according to CTNA. The lessons emphasize the reasons for the faith that the Church teaches and believes. Study guides are available. For more information about CTNA, contact Paul R.
