.... .- The Message Monthly m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana August 7, 199 Wo '( Magic of rds ,, , ,,, ,, I I II I By FATHER JOSEPH ZILIAK Associate Publisher How do we avoid becoming brain dead? As a physiological problem, the solution may be out of our hands. But as a psychological prob- lem, the solution is very definitely in our power to control. By brain dead I mean the attitude that pre- sumes nothing new happens or has happened in a particular field of study or life. Not only has noth- ing happened, in this flame of reference, but nothing should happen either. Are there such people? Yes, if not totally so, then nearly so. Of course, it seems strange that anyone would feel that way. What developments have been made over the past few years in auto- mobile manufacturing techniques and features available, such as airbags and anti-lock brake systems! The field of medicine has in similar fashion seen a great leap forward in specialized equip- ment and techniques. Women who earlier were to remain virtually bedfast for 10-days after child- birth, now are up and back home in two days. Gall bladder surgery is now a same-day procedure. II I Staying in touch in a changing world Cataract removal that just a few years ago called for immobility of the head for fear of hurt- ing the incision is now practically speaking an office call procedure. On and on goes the story of how we live and accept tremendous changes. The church and its ways may not be quite so innovative as the field of medicine these days, but still changes do come about. We dare not live as though all is the same as when we were children. Just the fact of changes in personnel, whether at the parish or diocesan level, foreshadow differences in emphasis and style. The moral to this story is that we each need to take the initiative to keep alive in our faith and prayer life, and to do what we can to keep aware of our church at the local, national and in- ternational levels. We each bear the obligation of educating ourselves and re-forming ourselves in the likeness of our Lord, and in union with his body, the church.

The Commission on Catholic Health Care Min- istry, in a recent report, called on bishops "to keep personally informed on rele- vant trends and issues in the health ministry, to challenge the faithful to greater respon- sibility for their role in this ministry, and to demonstrate their personal commitment to "its furtherance." The results of the consulta- tion will be used in the syn- odal planning process. Planning committee mem- bers in the Diodese of Evans- ville are Sister Sharon Richardt, IC., and Sister Catherine Kelly, D.C., both of Evansville, and Sister M. Magdalen Nolan, L.C.M., and Michael J. Budnick, both of Jasper. II I I Golden Jubilarians ceive or purchase any materials that help expand your knowledge of God's Word, the teaching of the church currently, or your awareness of the church's life in our diocese? How can we ever hope to grow and develop ourselves as committed followers of Christ Jesus today unless we do our part to reflect more clearly and deeply on his presence today? This newspaper, the Message, is but one reg- ular avenue of contact with our local church. Through the Message we hear from our bishop, the chief teacher, the chief pastor. We learn of the works of our brothers and sisters across the 12 counties of our diocese. We are inspired by their lives and find ways to improve our own, or model new ways on theirs.
