5, 1994 The Message- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 5 page 4 Lynn E. Wathen Evansville universal coverage 'the editor: this letter from House two months Since health care is still and since the commu- agog over health care I the reading of it might SOmebody. "Thank you for writing about health care reform and for sharing with us your sugges- tions and comments on this very important issue. The President's health care reform proposal responds directly to the crisis our nation now faces in health care. At some point during the year 58 million Americans go without insurance, "and 2 million Americans lose their insurance each month. In an effort to give Americans the health security they deserve, the President wants to strengthen what's right about our health !iii:il ii: : if:i//il !ii ,,i,, ,,, ,L  James Quilters Nurrenburn and Wanda Klueh display the hand- quilts that will be raffled at the St. James Summer St. James.

The President's proposal works the following way: "Guaranteed private in- surance. Every American will be guaranteed private compre- hensive insurance coverage that can never be taken away. "Choice. All Americans will have the right to choose their own doctor and health plan. It will be the individual, not the employer or insurance com- pany, who will make this im- portant choice. "Outlaw unfair insurance practices. It will be illegal for insurance companies to drop coverage or cut benefits; in- crease rates because of sick- ness, use lifetime limits to cut off benefits; or charge older people more than the young. This will make it possible for all Americans to obtain de- pendable and affordable insur- ance. "Preserve Medicare. Older Americans have a right to de- pend on Medicare and choose their own doctors. The Presi- dent will protect and strengthen Medicare by cover- ing prescription drugs and pro- viding new options for long- term care in the home and the community. "Health benefits guaran- teed at work. Every job should come with health bene- fits. The government will pro- vide discounts for small busi- nesses and help cover the unemployed. This nation now has a his- toric opportunity to change our health care system to make it work for all of us. I hope you will work with the President to make health security a reality for all Americans." The White House letter, dated May 21, is signed by Ira. C. Magaziner, Senior Advisor to the President for Policy De- velopment. Evelyn Klier Waldron Evansville Where is the respect? To the editor:. I have some concern about the attire worn by co-partici- pants in the celebration of the Eucharist in the sanctuary. First of all, this celebration is without equal; their is noth- ing intently as spiritual, holy, and edifying to the entire con- gregation as the Sacrifice of the Mass. All attention is di- rected toward the altar and the action performed by the cele- brant In keeping with the solem- nity the priest (celebrant) is at- tired in the garments of the of- fice and these garments reflect the beauty and the sacredness of the celebration. If the celebrant wore any- thing less would the celebra- tion take on a lesser degree of respect for it? Wouldn't it ap- pear as though there wasn't quite the concern for this heav- enly sacrifice if the celebrant came out attired in a Tee shirt and slacks? Why dress in the clothes that are prescribed for this cel- ebration? Is it only for the ben- efit of the celebrant and the people attending or is it a worldly display of vanity? I think not! Because the Eucharistic cel- ebration is so sublime it is the intention of the Church to do everything to lift the minds of the congregation to God. All things in the sanctuary are in- tended to direct us toward a more sublime encounter with our Creator. As I said at the outset, "I am concerned about the attire worn by the co-participants in the sanctuary during the cele- bration of Mass. Therefore, it is my contention that these co- participants should be clothed in attire that would reflect the holiness of the celebration which would enhance the fer- vor of the congregation.

Franklin Street 425-3187 I I I III IIIJll II I I[ J I I add to the beauty of the Sanc- tuary shouldn't it be equally important for the attire of the co-participants in the Sanctu- ary to dress appropriately in order to display our belief in the sacredness of the celebra- tion of the Eucharist? In our humility we should be no less concerned with our at- tire when we congregate to cel- ebrate this super-marvelous event. Is it proper to dress as though we were attending some sporting event? Aren't we more attentive toward our at- tire when we go to a wedding, a ball, a party, or a play? Can coming together to experience the Real Presence of Jesus Christ, once again, be any less important? Alfred H. Daniel Evansville Young man needs help To the editor:, In early July The Evansville Press ran an article about a young man named Joshua Kinsler and his decision to give up his job for a year to work with Catholic youth. This is quite a sacrifice for this young man to make but he needs some help. He is having a diffi- cult time raising the needed money to cover the expenses that he will incur during his five week training session in Catholic doctrine, as well as ongoing expenses during the year. This is an important effort on Joshua's part and the Catholic community should rally around young people like Joshua. We should support him and others who are willing to reach out to our Catholic youth and witness to these young people about the great giR we have as Catholic Chris- tians. Joshua's address is 6655 N.
