8 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana July 28, 1989 Serra International draws local, world members The following story was com- piled from Message and Catholic News Service reports. The modern Catholic Church does not depend on the men who lead her or on the church's policies but rather on God, said Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, archbishop of Paris. Cardinal Lustiger made his comments during the keynote address at the 47th Serra Inter- national convention, held June 30-July 2 in New Orleans. The convention drew 1,850 people, making it the largest conven- tion ever for the organization. Among those in attendance at the convention were Serra Club members from Evansville and Indianapolis, Ind., and Louisville, Ky. Members of the Serra Club of Evansville who attended were Louis T. "Ted" and Judy Gran- nan, Joseph and Mary Jane Theby, Syl and Frieda Brenner, Ken and Marlene Krasavage, Eugene and Margaret Adler and Father Jean Vogler. Grannan was the official delegate from the Evansville club. "We are not the owners nor the masters of the church," Car- dinal Lustiger said.."We simp- ly obey Christ and he gathers us into his church, so that she becomes ours." Cardinal Lustiger's speech, titled "Faith in Modern Society," addressed a variety of Catholic issues, including what he described as a growing wave of liberalism. "Liberalism is not transferable to ecclesiology," he said. "One of the constants is that there always remains a fundamental contradiction between faith and society." The cardinal rhetorically ask- ed the audience whether God's message was missed when changes are made in the Gospel to reflect liberalization. "Are we not forcing him to say what we like only," Car- dinal Lustiger said. "All societies are eager to remodel Christ's message according to their tastes and standards." He said the church cannot alter God's message because it is the church's mission to spread the message. "We must obey Christ as he obeys his father," he said. Cardinal Lustiger said that to be a true Christian, one must be willing to sacrifice just like Christ did. "We have to share his humility and humiliation," he said. "It is human faith which is being put to the test. Anything that prevents us from following Christ has to be put aside if we are to answer God's call." Also during the convention, Bill Folz of Phoenix, Ariz., was installed as president, suc- ceeding outgoing president, Rizal V. Pangilinan of Wheel- ing, W.Va. Serra International also launched a major cam- paign for vocations called "The Family Prayer Program," which encourages families to pray together at mealtime for vocations. Grannan, who said the con- vention at New Orleans was the eighth one he has attended, said the liturgies were very im- Lasorda fundraising for Sisters of Mercy By CHRISTOPHER WEILAND Catholic News Service NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CNS) -- Tommy Lasorda, manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, is go- ing back to bat for the Sisters of Mercy of the Union in Nashville. Lasorda, who last fall led the Dodgers to the World Series championship, has promised the nuns a "big night of enter- tainment in Nashville featuring some of the greatest talent in the United States" to raise funds to build the sisters a new convent. Lasorda already has raised some $50,000 to build the new convent by agreeing to lose some of his 218 pounds in ex- change for pledges. Two of his players, Orel Hershiser and Kurt Gibson gave him $30,000 for losing about 40 pounds and Slimfast gave him an additional $20,000 for his use of their weight-loss program. Lasorda is also scheduled to appear at a Las Vegas hotel which could net him another $50,000 for the nuns. Zadora, Susan Anton, Don Ricldes, Hank Williams Jr., and possibly Frank Sinatra. The nuns are being forced to move from their convent because it has become too cost- ly for the sisters to keep up and because it is plagued with fire code violations. Lasorda told the Tennessee Register, newspaper of the dioceses of Nashville and Knox- ville, that the fund-raiser is scheduled for Nov. 30 at either the Grand Ole Opry House or the Nashville Convention Center. Lasorda said he hopes to br- ing together on stage Pia pressive. There were 29 arch- bishops and bishops in atten- dance, along with two car- dinals, and 100 priests and deacons, he said. Among the memorable events of the convention for Grannan, in addition to the liturgies, were the talks given by Archbishop Philip Hannan, retired, of New Orleans; Father Virgil B. Elizondo of San An- tonio, Texas; and Val Dillon, Family Life Director from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Grannan said a highlight of the convention for him was the Diocese adoration of the Blessed Sacra- ment. A room was set aside at the hotel during the conven- tion; someone was in the room during every hour, throughout the weekend, he said. The New Orleans convention was the first for Ken Krasavage, who commented that he was "not much of a convention per- son" and did not expect very much that he had not seen before. The Serra Convention, however, "proved me totally wrong," he said, describing the three things he found to be very impressive. He said he enjoyed the "sense of belonging" with people he got to know from 17 different countries. He said he was impressed with the quality of the programs and the top- notch speakers he heard. He said, apart from the fact that it was a Serra International Con- vention, it was a well run con- vention -- "somebody put together a fine package." Serra International is a Catholic lay organization which promotes church vocations. It has 17,000 members and clubs in 30 countries worldwide. Continued from page 2 the presenter.
