2 !; The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana When love makes you "lose your mi By CHARL1E MARTIN Catholic New Service HOW DO I LIVE? How do I get through/A night without you?/If I had to live without you/What kind of life/Would that be?/For I need you in my arms,/Need you to hold/You're my world,/My heart, my soul. If you would leave, baby,/You would take away/Everything good in my life/And tell me, REFRAIN How do I live without you?/I want to know./How do I breathe without you,/If you ever go?/How do I ever/Ever survive?/How do I live,/How do I live/How do I live/How do I live without you? There would be no sun/In my sky./There would be no love/In my life./There would be no love/For me/And I, baby, I don't know/What I would do./I'd be lost if I lost you. (REPEAT SECOND VERSE) (REPEAT REFRAIN) How do I go on? (REPEAT SECOND VERSE) (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written by Diane Warren Sung by LeAnn Rimes Copyright (c) 1997 by Curb Records A singer who performs material by Debbie Boone, Bette Midler and Paul Simon invites compar- isons to those great talents. It takes a lot of self-confi- dence to dare to be compared to them. That would be like a baseball player being compared to Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Ken Griffey Jr. However, if one has the voice of LeAnn Rimes, the comparison can stand. Only 15 years old, Rimes shows us what hard work, others' support and per- sonal confidence can achieve. Her new CD "You Light Up My Life" contains songs by Boone, Midler, Simon and others. Most of the cuts are inspirational. She does "Amazing Grace" as well as I've heard it. However, "How Do I Live?" which is currently in Billboard's top five, focuses on romance. The song describes how falling in love can make a person lose his or her mind, so to speak. Since we are all likely to experience this temporary state of being, I decided to comment on it. The girl in the song says: "If you would leave, baby, you would take away everything good in my life." The statement expresses her emotional but lucky for us, God gave us inore than guide our lives. In fact, throwing some emotional fire helps relationships endure. Romantic love grows if the life before falling in love. If one is supposed "everything good" in another's life, then this needs that no one individual could ever fill. Here's an example. Does "everything your life suddenly end if someone you away to college? You may try to keep the going, but you will find that the Without other interests, concerns ings of depression and emptiness will result.: The way to avoid such hurt is to God gave each of us a wide variety What do you love to do? What new areas of you want to explore? How can you reach ers and improve the quality of their lives? Losing a dating partner should not "everything good" from a person's life. It may take some reorienting to answer the "How do I live?" The answers are as close as desires. Ask God to guide your life through times closeness with others as well as Your comments are always welcome. Charlie Martin, 7125 W 20.0S, Rockport, Ind. THE CATHOLIC co00w200007,1o NEW YORK (CNS)  The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Confer- ence (USCC) Office for Film and Broadcasting. Ratings are also given by the Motion Pic- ture Association of America (MPAA). "The Devil's Advocate" (Warner Bros.) Overwrought fantasy in which an ambitious criminal attorney (Keanu Reeves) nearly sacrifices his morals and loses his wife (Charlize Theron) when lured into a powerful New York law firm by the devil in disguise (AI Pacino). Drama and come- dy clash badly in director Tay- lor Hackford's shrill potboiler, which relies on a lame clichd to reach its drawn-out conclusion. Gory violence, explicit sexual encounters, recurring full nudi- ty and much rough language with profanity. The USCC clas- sification is O - - morally offen- sive. The MPAA rating is R restricted. "The House of Yes" (Miramax) Darkly comic tale about an unstable young woman (Parker Posey) who becomes unhinged when her brother who was once her lover (Josh Hamilton) returns from college with a fiancee (Tori Spelling). Director Mark Waters' talky story shows its stage play origins while depicting a thoroughly dys- functional family, but instead of being madly amusing, its humor is often tasteless. Fleet- ing violence, implied sexual encounters, flippant treatment of incest, occasional profanity and rough language. The USCC classification is A-IV  adults, with reservations. The MPAA rating is R  restricted. "Most Wanted" (New Line) Murky thriller in which a fugitive Marine (Keenen Ivory Wayans) is framed by a power- mad general (,]on Voight) for the murder of the president's wife. Director David Glenn Hogan's convoluted conspiracy plot becomes increasingly far- fetched as the narrative strains to showcase constant action scenes. Intermittent violence, fleeting nudity, occasional pro- fanity and some rough lan- guage. The USCC classification is A-III  adults. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Napoleon" (Goldwyn) Colorful animal story about a young puppy (voice of Jamie Croft) in Sydney, Australia, who gets carried away by hot-air bal- loons into the outback where he learns the wonders and dangers of the wilderness while making his way home with the help of some friendly animals. Directed by Mario Andreacchio, the puppy's adventures include some scary moments along the way, but his mostly happy encounters with an exotic vari- Advent: Love gives birth to service Behold the Star, by Rev.

Message Staff In a very few weeks, it will be the season of Advent -- planned by the Church in preparation for the Incarnation of our Lord. Advent can be a time of deli- cious anticipation. The busyness of the coming Christmas season encourages the use of "compan- ions for the journey"  little books of daily reflections and practices to e :'ich oar spiritual path. Most of (is need such assis- tance to stay on track amid the demands of a Christmas season filled with gift-buying, special family get-togethers, social events, and a calendar full of incidental everyday needs. Liguori has a new one of these companions for Advent, and it has cycles A, B, and C, so that it need not be replaced each year with a new little book. Every week, every day of Advent, right through the midnight Mass and Mass on Christmas Day, there are brief passages to read, prayers to breathe, and questions to sit with. All these are accompanied by suggested Scripture readings pointing toward Bethlehem. Behold the Star makes a fine Advent prayer-partner. and on the board of the National Conference of Christians and Jews.
