16 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana "Temptation" Continued from page 1 Ariz., warned that pickets or condemnatory statements "could create a larger au- dience." Bishop Joseph L. Howze of Biloxi, Miss., in a column to be published in the Aug. 12 edi- tion of the Gulf Pine Catholic, the diocesan newspaper, said "the best protest" would be "to boycott any theater which shows the film." In Los Angeles, Archbishop Roger Mahony voiced concern for the "anti-Semitic implica- tions" of some protesters, a concern raised by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights as well. Jesuit Father Virgil C. Blum, founder and Organ Continued from page 15 where it will be repaired. The carpeting and loft furniture were also removed, to prepare for the arrival of Wolford and Woods Organs, Inc. The refurbished pipe organ is expected to be completed by Easter of 1989, according to Father Ackerman. Members of the organ restora- tion committee include Joe Summers, Gloria Kiefner, Mark Hatfield, Steve Piper, Greg Sturm, Jim Spurrier, Jack Sievers, John Sievers, Father Donald Ackerman, Father John Breidenbach and Dottle Lane. Vatican Continued from page 5 Marian symposiums discussed the phenomenon. But one appeal made to Marian shrine rectors last November by Cardinal Luigi Dadaglio, head of the central committee, has not yet had any appreciable effect. The cardinal asked the rec- tors to use charitable and health institutes connected with such shrines to provide care for those suffering from AIDS and drug abuse and to let him know of their efforts. To date, the com- mittee has received no response, Father Cloutier said. However, the committee's appeal for charitable works to accompany other acts of devo- tion to Mary was not lost on the Diocese of Bossangoa, in the Central African Republic. Bishop Sergio Adolfo Govi's efforts to restore the diocese's Marian shrine include plans to build a dispensary next to it, a sign of the "concrete commit- ment of charity" asked for by the central committee. The Marian year might not be a 100 percent success in every Catholic diocese, concluded Father Cloutier, but its fruits are already evident in many places. The year has brought about a "rebirth of Marian awareness in the life and the prayers of the church," he said. As viewed from the Vatican, it is a satisfying sight. FATHER COUNCIL /  Meets at University of Evansville Newman Center 2nd 4th Thursdays at 7:30 p,m, Fr, Tony Kissel,ohaplain New members invited. Call Doug Mathets Grand Knight, 473-3107 president of the Catholic League, said protests should concentrate on the content of the movie. Anti-Semitism is "one of the most repugnant manifestations of religious bigotries," Father Blum said. Richard Hirsch, secretary of the U.S. bishops' Communica- tion Department, who saw the movie, urged restraint. He said much of what was said by pro- testers who did not see the film was wrong. "A good deal of what had been discussed is inaccurate," said Hirsch. He specifically cited material circulated by the Rev. Donald E. Wildmon, a Methodist minister spearheading the criticism. Mr. Wildmon, head of the American Family Association, in Tupelo, Miss., based his remarks on an early script and said the production is "the most perverted, distorted ac- count of the historical and biblical Jesus I have ever read." Morality in Media was equal- ly stinging after two of its staff members viewed the film. It is "an intentional demean- ing of Christ," portrays him as "a colossal wimp," and shows the "distorted thinking of anyone who had anything to do with the film," Morality in Media said.
