0 The Message o for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Magic of Words August 16, 1991 II i i By FATHER JOSEPH L. ZILIAK Associate Publisher Unauthorized leaflet raid troubles parish pastor Generally I am a fairly peaceable man. Through the years of knowing people and the affairs of the human heart, I am also a decently understanding type of person. I am not easily upset vhen others hold positions not entirely in agreement with my own. But...! Soe person or persons came to our parish Irking lot during the 12-noon Mass this past .Sunday and placed literature on each of the c..s. At t, I thought some parish was placing handbitadvertising a summer social. I g(bed one and was still not troubled as I saw tlmage of a beautiful Mary printed on a baby Ie legal size sheet of paper. Stapled to the covNere two pages, printed on both sides, ypewritten material. Mle first fell on the name of the orga- nizatioat was responsible for printing the materi-Priory of St. John the Baptist, Louisvi Kentucky. I knew we were in trou- ble. If  were able to stay with the text, you would lln, according to this document, that the Mas were responsible in some vague statement from Pope Pius V written in 1570 could never, ever be changed or updated. It is on such flimsy evidence that the writing states that the Mass formulary that we presently use is not the true Mass. "No one, not even a Pope, has the right to be 'un-Catholic' and sin in the matter of dis- obeying Pope St. Pius' decree about the Latin Mass! Therefore, the Apostolic Constitution of Pope Paul VI is null and void." Phooey on such argumentation! I wonder how they can give Pope Pius V the right to make some changes in 1570 and then deny that same right to Pope Paul VI in 1969? The language becomes ever more strident: "[The present Mass formulary] is new, ille- gal, immoral, not Catholic and is no Mass at all." As if these positions are not enough, the document goes on the condemn the RENEW pro- gram. "The RENEW program now flooding our churches is meant among other things to de- sensitize the last vestiges of Catholicism from the parishes." I doubt if even those heavily involved in the RENEW program would give it that much ofa powerful influence. So that no one escapes unscathed, the writer takes on Parish Councils. The anony- mous author reminds us that "the idea of parish councils running things is revolution- ary to the Catholic Church, for to us the Holy Ghost enlightens and rules from above through the Pope on down - and not vice-versa." If the writer were to read and study Canon 536 in the Code of Canon Law promulgated by Pope John Paul II, he or she would clearly see the call for the existence of pastoral councils. They are to be a consultative body to the pas- tor. The writer is also against communion in the hand and extraordinary ministers of com- munion. So goes the diatribe. It is wearisome to see attitudes and writings that are so boringly repetitious over the past 25 years. The worst thing is the group's invasion of private property to pollute the minds and hearts of our people. To say nothing of the en- vironmental pollution by misusing so much paper.

The effectiveness of the campaign also is apparent in the "defensive reactions" adopted by the National Abortion Rights Action League, she said. "In the states where we've been working hard, NARAL's posi- tion has been to concentrate on freedom of choice at the federal level."

Schulte of New Orleans, 63, underwent a triple coronary artery bypass Aug. 8 and doc- tors said the prognosis was good for his full recovery. He was listed in satisfacto- ry condition Aug. 9. He was admitted to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia Aug. 4 after suffering an angina episode while on vacation in Pennsylvania. Doctors determined he did not suffer a heart attack but said that a test called a car- diac catheterization showed the archbishop had coronary artery disease. The archbishop was,to re- main hospitalized sevezt to 10 days and then spend a week or two recovering in Philadel- 1 i phia before being allowed to travel. Archbishop Schulte, who was born on Christmas Day in 1927 in Philadelphia, has headed the New Orleans Archdiocese since December 1988, when he was named successor to retiring Arch- bishop Philip M. Hannan. He had been bishop of Wheeling-Charleston, W.Va., since 1985. He was auxiliary bishop of Philadelphia from August 1981 to June 1985. Prior to that he was assistant superin- tendent of schools for the Philadelphia Archdiocese from 1960 to 1970 and super- intendent from 1970 to 1980. H also was a pastor and a cd!llege and high school teacher. jority of major media outlets -- whether print, audio or video -- have assumed an ed- itorial position in favor of legal abortion." As a result, she said, the media tend to accept and re- peat "misinformation" about abortion as presented by abortion advocates. At the same time, she said, the media challenge anti- abor- tion claims critically and "with great regularity." She said the secular media have refused to take up inves- tigative reporting on abortion "because critical examination of the abortion lobby's claims is not part of their agenda.'
