J i November 21, 1997 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 13 JIM and ANN CAVERA " One afternoon while we were sitting on the P:rlhedP at.Grandma and Grandpa s, afriend oy. bhe stopped to talk and soon the conver- sation tUrned to mutual acquaintances from years fga.elibY" When she tried to call to mind a certain ar name, she said, !'You know, she was the . "No use. Frozen in mid-sentence, eamnembered the person, but not the name. Both acts tlew to her face and she exclaimed, "Oh! havin a We L.,,... g Senior Moment!' We laughed because ;7 W exactly what she meant. rh:, ve asked about her husband, Steve, and her uren. Soon she resumed her walk, but just before Senior Moments Nov. 1997 she vanished around the corner, we looked at each other and one of us said, Her husband's name isn't Steve. It's Ed. Steve is her son." We'd had our own Senior Moment," and our friend had the grace to let it pass. This kind of thing is hardly a rare occurrence for us at this time in our lives. Indeed we sail in danger- ous waters, full of deep pools and hidden rocks. At breakfast we open the microwave oven to heat something, only to discover that it's still occupied by the vegetable we meant to serve at last night's supper. We find ourselves tapping the bristles on our toothbrushes before we leave for work. Wet means we've brushed our teeth. We sometimes put a telephone number, key, or semi-important paper away in a safe place. When we need to retrieve the item we have no idea how to locate the safe place. While the younger generation searches for its identi- ty, at least we only have to search for lost things. Experts tell us that short-term memory is one of the first areas to be affected by the aging process. The solution lies in our ability to find ways to com- pensate. For years people have kept lists and written notes to themselves. This technique works very well as long as you can remember where you keep these notes. In recent years a whole new industry has sprung up with solutions for those of us suffering from Senior Moments." Small, hand-held computers can store names, dates, appointments, and those phone numbers that escape you. They can even be programmed to "beep" you as a reminder to do something. Science has come up with a replacement for morn and the kitchen calender. In spite of our Senior Moments, there are some things about which we have no doubts. We know who we really are. We know what we believe. And, we are very certain of our love for the people closest to our hearts. We've got the important parts cov- ered. As for the rest of life? Never mind the details.

In 1962 he went to The Catholic University of America in Wash- ington, where he earned a licen- tiate in canon law in 1964. The then-Father Murray was named assistant pastor of St. Therese Parish in Lansing, where he served from 1964 to 1968. He was appointed diocesan chancellor in 1968  a post he held until this spring. He has been rector of St. Mary Cathedral since 1973, and moderator of the curia since 1991. He was named a mon- signor in 1993. He has also been diocesan ecumenical officer, chaplain of the Lansing police, and has served on several committees of the Michigan Catholic Con- ference, the public policy arm of the state's bishops, which is headquartered in Lansing. Bishop Carl F. Mengeling of Lansing, in a statement, called Bishop-designate Murray "an outstanding priest whose remarkable achievements as a spiritual leader have impacted positively for the church." He said Bishop-designate Murray is "esteemed and respected as a priest who is forthright, reliable and trust- worthy. His love for the Lord and the church meant always saying 'yes.' "The word 'no' to parish and diocesan needs and the myriad and varied needs of parishioners was not in his vocabulary It was ahvays a firm yes with a smile and often a humorous quip." Bishop Mengeling added that "the Holy Father has made a wise and providential choice in naming Msgr. Murray as the third bishop of Kalamazoo." The Kalamazbo Diocese, established in 1971, takes in nine counties in southwestern Michigan. It has a Catholic population of nearly 100,000 in a total population of 909,000, I ii i iiiii I ST. ]OSEPH CATHOLIC CEMETERy AND MAUSOLEUM Since 1871 The Catholic Church surrounds the sacred rites with the most beautiful of prayers and the most consoling of anointings and blessings. Therefore, it is most fitting that the bodily remains of our loved ones, made sacred by the sacraments, should be placed in peaieful sun-oundings.
