The Message.-for Catho!ics of Southwestern .Indiana October a !-- ........ On'The Recrdo -- " " " You are on this planet to help the rest of us SOMEBODY TO LOVE Each morning I get up/I die a little/Can barely stand on my feet/Take a look in the mirror and cry/Lord, what you're doing to me/I have spent all my years/In believing you But I just can't get no relief, Lord/Somebody, somebody/Can anybody find me/Somebody to love. CNS COLUMNIST I (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written by Freddie Mercury Sung by George Michael and Queen Copyright (c) 1993 by Queen Music Ltd., Beechwood Music Corp and QM Productions Ltd. George Michael's "Somebody to Love" carries the following message on its cassingle jacket cover: judgment.. Whether you know someone with AIDS or not, i is important to find ways to bring more love world. For example, at school, are you openly ward everyone? Obviously, you cannot establish friendshi p with everyone, but you can be kind each individual. "  You can try to greet others, even those not accepted by certain cliques. You can gossip about classmates or teachers, and make I work hard every day of my life/I work till I ache my bones/At the end I take home/My hard-earned pay all on my own/I get down on my knees/And I start to pray/Till the tears Run down from my eyes. (REFRAIN) Lord, somebody, somebody/Can anybody find me/Somebody to love. (He works hard.) Everyday I try and I try and I try/But every- body wants to put me down/They say I'm goin' crazy/They say I got a lot of water/In my brain/Got no common sense/I got nobody left to believe/Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Got no feel, I got no rhythm/I just keep losing my beat/I'm OK, I'm all right/Ain't gonna face no defeat/I just gotta get out/Of this prison cell Someday I gonna be free, Lord. "All artist royalties and record company profits that your school holds just a little more love from this compact disc will be donated to the Mer- compassion" cury PhoenixTrust for the distribution of AIDS As you get close to graduation, think abo/lt charities worldwide in memory of the incomparable Freddie Mercury." This song is one more example of how today's pop musicians reach out to those suffering in our world. Michael and the surviving members of Queen recorded this release live at London's Wembley Stadium. No matter what you think of Freddie Mercury, these musicians' efforts challenge us to open our hearts with compassion to anyone living with AIDS. The song focuses on one person's search for love. Whatever our age or state of health, love is what matters most in our lives. Clearly, this person wants to be loved. However, he finds that even though "I try and I try and I try, ... everybody wants to put me down." His experience of negative feedback is similar to what can happen to people with AIDS. Instead of love, society responds with fear, and sometimes you can expand your love. Few of us will search biologists or chemists, striving to find for AIDS. Yet we all possess our own abilities, t interests. What career can you choose that uses your abilities to bring more caring to our human family? If you are not sure, ask God for guidance, part0 why you are on this planet is to help the rest God will show you the way if you ask to see this path of service more clearly. You can find many people to love -- in your school, in your home and in a 'career later in Doing so brings God's healing to each person meet.

CTNA starts marketing plan to line up thousands of subscri By MARK PATTISON Catholic News Service WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The brochures from the Catholic Telecommunications Network of America will hit the mail in October. Fifty thou- sand of them, to every Catholic parish, school, campus min- istry, hospital and institution in the United States. It's an invitation to sub- scribe to CTNA for just $750 a year -- a much lower rate than a rate of up to $23,000 dioceses had paid for years. And in November and De- cember, CTNA will unscramble its signal to give potential cus- tomers a free sneak preview before the network's new schedule debuts. It's the cornerstone in a new marketing strategy to make CTNA not only self-sufficient, but relevant to parishes. The initial brochure will be fol- lowed up by a second brochure, as well as the next two issues of'rhe Link," CTNA's newslet- ter for subscribers. But at $750 a year, or $62.50 a month, will parishes want to subscribe to a network that broadcasts only 14 hours weekly, compared to a pre- mium cable channel that costs only $15 or so a month and broadcasts continuously? "The pastors don't look at it that way," CTNA president Peter Dirr told Catholic News Service after a Sept. 27 recep- tion announcing the marketing strategy. "They see (CTNA) as re- sources, some of it they're al- ready paying for," Dirr said. In focus groups of pastors convened to help CTNA assem- ble its new format, he added, "They said they were paying a speaker $150 a night to speak to 20, 24 people. So they are al- ready spending some of that money." Dirr said his "modest" esti- mates are that CTNA will sign up 2,000 subscribers by the end of 1994, and another 2,000 by the end of 1995. "I fully ex- pect that half of the parishes will sign up," he said, but noted that if his estimates were met, CTNA would be self- sufficient by the time the U.S. CTNA offerings: Conversations on Catechesis the Catholic Television Net- : Conference.

CTNA will roll out a dozen new shows Jan. 10. Four of them -- "The New catechism," "Sacraments," "Missionaries at Work" and "Inside the NCCB/USCC" -- will be pro- duced by CTNA in Washing- ton. The others -- "Catholics/Americans," "Cele- brate Life!", "Human Sexual- ity," "Liturgy and Life," "Mar- riage Preparation," "The Gospel of Luke," "The New Sacramentary" and "What Catholics Believe" -- will come from outside producers. "We've been literally beating the bushes to find new and ex- citing programming that can be used," said Father Dennis Diehl, CTNA's director of pro- gram development. The shows, along with 14 re- turning programs,, focus on eight areas Dirr said focus groups desired most: catech- esis, evangelization, family is- sues, liturgy and seasons, prayer and spirituality, Scrip- ture, social concerns, and the U.S. bishops and diocesan leadership.
