10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana --- Magic of Words-- Remembering our loved ones on All Saints It&apos;s the time of year when we remember. At the same time, we pray that we may all also be able 3' to celebrate as well as believe. We remember those who have gone before us in the sleep of eter- nal peace. If we have lost a loved one very recently, the pain may seem too sharp for anything but an aching hurt at the emptiness. If the loss is of some length of time, the looking back and remem- brances may now be much more healing and helpful. Grandchildren fortunate enough to have known their grand- parents may have vivid memories of having been showered with love, and time devoted only to them. Grandparents, you know, take the time that may not have been available in their years of par- enting to share secrets and stories. Children may have the wisdom of years to re- flect on the marvelous gifts inherited and learned from their parents. It does, indeed, take a few years of living for Us to acknowledge the blessings By FATHER JOSEPH ZILIAK COLUMNIST and wisdom imparted to us by our elders. Sometimes we had to experi- ence tough love from them. Some- times the love was softer. We were probably the cause of whether we gained wisdom easily or with much difficulty. We may have been able to com- prehend insights into living at an early age. Some may have come to the age of reason only much later in the lifespan. Some are separated from their own children. This is often the most painful cross for a parent to bear. ..... Temporary estrangement and sepa- ration is difficult enough for most people. But when the gap of separation means the death of a young one, the hurt is more powerful than ever. But they are in God's hands. If we believe the promise of our Lord, we know that they are now at peace. No more torment or tears. They are at the wedding feast of the Lord Jesus. They wear the crown of glory that comes from bearing faithfully the cross of Christ.

Pastoral Care Week observed National Pastoral Care week is being observed this week, through Oct. 31, at St. Mary's Medical Center, Evansville. The theme of the week is "Stories of Partnership." Father Ralph Schipp, chap- lain at the hospital, noted that the theme of the week calls at- tention to the teamwork aspect of pastoral care. Pastoral care- givers are part of a collabora- tive effort which also includes the staff of the hospital and the patients themselves. How those partnerships take place may vary from one set- ting tb another, and from one patient to another, said Father Schipp. The annual observance enables all chaplains and oth- ers involved i, pastoral care giving to tell others about what they do. The week-long observance is sponsored by the Congress on Ministry in Specialized Set- tings (COMISS).
