June 28, 1991 The Message m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana ii Bishop&apos;s Forum i By BISHOP GERALD A. GETTELFINGER SUMMER 1991: Let it be safe! Keeping physically and spiritually safe this summer It seems that summer came quite early this year. One wonders if there was a spring at all. It is good for all of us to remember our prayers for a good harvest. It seems that, for the most part, our prayers for a good planting season have been an- swered. Although the harvest of small grain was not as abundant as in years past, we have much for which to thank God as we begin the summer season. It is the growing season, the vegetable season, the fruit season, the berry season. It is the season of vacations, travel and out-of-doors activ- ities. At the rogation day in spring, I encouraged all farmers to be careful on the farm. A year does not pass, it seems, that some tragic farm accident takes the life of a farmer.

The farm is certainly a wonder- ful place to live and work, but in many ways it is also very dangerous. In the heat of summer and in a hurry to "beat the weather" farmers can easily turn to deadly short-cuts. Summer too is an exciting time for families to have fun in and near the water. Water sports are most alluring in our hot and humid climate. A canoe trip dawn one of our rivers, a dip in the pool, a boat trip on the Ohio, the sheer pleasure of water skiing in a boat's wake, all these are most invigorating. Water sports too can have tragic consequences. Water sports are safe if each of us follows simple rules of safety. Recreational vehicles bring joy to the user. Two "wheelers," three "wheelers," four "wheel- ers," skate boards, bicycles, tricycles are all evi- dent in summer. There is a freedom of spirit that i rides with these machines. Each one of them has a way of making us believe that we are indestruc- tible. When that happens, trouble is quick to fol- low. There is yet another reason for us to be alert. Relaxation of body can lead to a relaxation of spirit. Freedom of summer brings with it a sense of independence; a spirit of "anything goes." In a curious way this "elf of summer" seems to give us permission to set aside self-control. Disciplines of mind, body and spirit are abso- lutely necessary if we are to keep ourselves physi- cally and spiritually safe. We should continue to study. Our bodies require care, not abuse. Our concern for one another must dominate our ten- dency to self-gratification. Regular perdanal and communal encounters with God through personal prayer and communal worship are essential. Be careful! Be safe in God's presence! I Speaker criticizes CORPUS Mass NEW YORK (CNS) -- COR- PUS, a national organization that promotes a married priesthood, got a surprise bombshell of criticism at its annual meeting in New York from one of its featured speakers, editor Margaret O'Brien Steinfels of the lay Catholic magazine Common- weal. Steinfels said that CORPUS members who were sched- uled to celebrate Mass follow- ing her talk and participants who planned to attend a sep- arate prayer vigil outside St. Patrick's Cathedral were "more apt to postpone than hasten the acceptance of a married priesthood." Charging that the Eucharist was being made "a tool for agitation," she dismissed at- tempts by CORPUS to justify CARL'S DOWNTOWN CRFE 3rd & Main -Vincennes Monday - Friday 6:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday 6:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. Breakfast & Homemade Plate Lunches ALSO ALL OCCASION CATERING German American Bank We Make Friends For Life JASPER, INDIANA i 9 its action canonically as "fili- greed rationalizations."
