Ingram Sung by Des'ree Copyright (c) 1994 by Sony Music Entertainmen (United Kingdom) Ltd. The lyrics sheet with Des'ree's new CD "I Ain't Movin" carries this message: "One body -- respect it; one mind -- feed it; one life enjoy it." Sounds like good advice. Similarly, Des'ree has an abundance of good ideas on "You Gotta Be," her first chart hit off this disc. Most of us would like to be bolder, wiser, tougher and stronger. If by "you gotta be" she means that there are ways we can grow spiritually, I certainly agree. Reaching such goals holds the po- tential to increase the satisfaction we experience in our daily lives. But I wish that Des'ree could have added "more patient" to her list. Few of us can easily leap to being wiser, bolder or stronger. We often learn from hindsight rather than purposeful intent. Something works out poorly, and then we realize how we could have approached the situation differ- ently. For example, suppose you promise your par- ents that you will be home at a certain time. Then you discover that you are having so much fun with your friends that you choose to hang out with them for a few more hours. When you get home, you see that your parents have been concerned about you. They are also angry that you didn't show the courtesy of calling and asking for an extension of your curfew. At first you might be upset with your judging them to be overreacting. However, u flection, you realize that you broke You also see how you injured the trust in tionship with them. You might even ask yourself these "Shouldn't I have been wise in -- ,tl consequences of my choices?" coulan , been stronger in resisting my frie that I stay our later?" In the scenario I've presented, patience quality you need. After apologizing parents, you also need to be patient with You have learned a little more about being ble about your commitments and promises. God wants us to discover and act on the within ourselves. When you don't, be yourself. Take your mistake as a lesson bolder, wiser, tougher or stronger. Perfection is not God's goal for our Rather, like Des'ree suggests, God wants us the great gift of life and use it as a l0 spiritually. So yes, set out for important also enjoy your growth as being who you want to be. (Your comments are address: Charlie Martin, RR3, Box 182, port, IN 47635.) At the movies: Current revi NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broadcasting. "The Browning Version" (Paramount) British production of Ter- ence Rattigan's play about a sour, dispirited classics teacher (Albert Finney) in a posh boys' prep school where, on the eve of his forced retirement, he finds the gumption to stand up to his unfaithful wife (Greta Scacchi) and a manipulative headmaster (Michael Gambon) after being deeply affected by an end-of-term gift from one of his students (Ben Silverstone). Directed by Mike Figgis, the half-hearted attempt to update characters and situations from the 1950s into a contemporary setting fails to make the period story credible in the present, save for Finney's compelling performance as the dried-up pedant who comes to realize too late his failures as educator and husband. Implied adulter- ous liaisons and some rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classffication is A- III -- adults. The Motion Pic- ture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. "Faust" (Zeitgeist) Surrealistic Czech fantasy in which a man (Petr Cepek) is strangely drawn to a Prague theater, where he finds himself New Christmas recording to benefit retired religious Evansville native in the choir By PAUL R. LEINGANG Message editor Sisters in Song Celebrate was a success. Now there is a sequel, which also will benefit retired religious sisters, broth- ers and priests in the United States. Sisters in Song Christmas Spirit was recorded by 60 sis- ters J including Evansville native, Providence Sister Lisa Stallings and two other mem- bers of the St. Mary-of-the- Woods community. Sister Stallings, in a Mes- sage interview July 22, said that the recording sessions in Los Angeles surprised her. She expected to have a "musical ex- perience," she said, but she ex- perienced a great deal more: an "experience of faith and commitment" on the part of the 60 sisters who came from all over the United States. Providence Sisters Kathy Burke and Dawn Tomaszewski, along with Sis- ter Stallings, were selected from almost 300 sisters who sent in audition tapes. The 60 sisters selected ranged in age from their 20s to around 70, and represented 26 religious communities. Proceeds from the real-life Sister Act will be divided,be- tween the two national agen- cies dedicated to the retire- ment needs of religious -- the Tri-Conference Retirement Of- fices and S.O.A.R. (Support Our Aging Religious). Christmas Spirit offers a di- verse Selection of carols, hymns and choral pieces. It is distributed by World Library Publications, (800) 621-5197. Cassette $9.95. CD $12.95. Shipping and handling charges will be added. playing the role of Faust, sometimes on the stage or in a medieval setting but most often in a marionette version, all of which inevitably ends with Mephistopheles (again Cepek) claiming the man's soul as he desperately tries to find the exit. to the city streets. Written and directed by Jan Svankmajer, the work is a playfully absurd composite of live action, puppetry and clay animation but the traditional story gets lost in a welter of shifting scenes and bizarre im- ages with Faust as a contem- porary Everyman bumbling his way through a mythic world of good and evil. Sparse dubbed dialogue. A satanic incanta- tion, some bawdy humor and sexual innuendo. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-III -- adults.
