(ASCAP) Looking for a dream lover to be your companion? If so, the fantasy in Mariah Carey's new smash will grab your attention. You can add "Dreamlover" to Ms. Carey's growing list of chart- toppers. The cassingle is off her recent CD "Music Box." The song is fine for a fantasy. Just don't take it too seriously or think that it describes what a ro- mance should be. No person exists who can meet as many expectations as Ms. Carey's "Dreamlover." The song promotes the idea that others are re- sponsible for making us happy. If the girl in the song can just meet her perfect guy, then he can turn her life into everything she ever wanted. Believing that others are supposed to make us happy is a sure path to disillusionment. No one is in this world to do this for you. Find happiness is each person's responsibility. True, most of us seek close relationships. The possibility of mutual sharing, respect and compan- ionship certainly add to our happiness. But we are likely to be disappointed if we! romance to answer all our needs life. It is far more helpful to forts can make you happy. Each of us has t over our actions and decisions.

Christmas season a perfect time for family video v' By Henry Herx Catholic News Service NEW YORK (CNS) -- 'Tis the season for Christmas lists and here is one for stay-at- home movie fans. The object of this exercise is to consider theatrical movies that have stood the test of time in their appeal over the years to all ages, especially the young seeing them for the first time. These are a select group of family entertainment classics, as notable for their production quality as for their moral val- ues. Though most of them have no movie industry rating, all have been classified A-I -- gen- eral patronage -- by the U.S. Catholic Conference. 1. "Pinocchio" (1940; Disney, $24.99) stands out in the ani- mation category, with "Bambi" (1942) and "Dumbo" (1941) close seconds -- though every- one has their own favorite among the many classics pro- duced by Walt Disney in his prime. Disney, of course, is not the only name in animation. It's a field rich in family classics, from Richard Fleischer's "Gul- liver's Travels" (1939; Repub- lic, $28.98) to Alan Bunce's "Babar: The Movie" (1989; Children's specials, musical programs, Christmas Mass on EWTN A telecourse on the sacra- ments, for catechists and reli- gion teachers, is among the programs available from the Catholic Telecommunications Network of America and the diocesan Office of Communica- tions. Part One of the series, "Com- mitted in Body and Spirit: Catholic Sacramental Life," aired Nov, 30. The next parts will be transmitted Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21, from 2 to 3 p.m. CST. Topics include the following: Part One: The Sacraments in General and the Eucharist. Part Two: The Sacraments of Responsibility: A Commit- ment to Care (Marriage and the Domestic Church; Holy Or- ders and the Ecclesial Family). Part Three: The Sacraments of Initiation: A Commitment to Belong. Part Four: The Sacraments of Healing: A Commitment to Return. Family Home Entertainment, $24.95). 2. "The Wizard of Oz" (1939; MGM/UA, $24.98) is a plea- sure to put at the head of the fantasy category. Though one can always look forward to its annual TV airing, family view- ers would probably enjoy it even more without commer- cials. But there are many, many other wholesome fantasy movies, offering their own brand of special wonderments from the marvels of "The Thief of Bagdad" (1940; HBO, $19.98) to the contemporary innocence of "E.T. The Extra- Terrestrial" (1982; MCA/Uni- versal, $19.95). 3. "Lassie Come Home" (1943; MGM/UA, $19.98), the story of a canny canine, leads the list of animal movies in a category having special appeal for youngsters. But whether it's horses ("Na- tional Velvet," 1944; MGM/UA, $19.98), or dogs ("Benji," 1974; Vestron, $19.98), dolphin ("Flipper," 1963; MGM/UA, $19.98), or deer ("The Year- ling," ( 1946; MGM/UA, $19.98), animal movies are sure-fire winners with the small fry.. 4. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938; MGM/UA, CTNA offerings: Series on Sacraments A telecourse on the sacra- ments, for catechists and reli- gion teachers, is among the programs available from the Catholic Telecommunications Network of America and the diocesan Office of Communica- tions. Part One of the series, "Com- mitted in Body and Spirit: Catholic Sacramental Life," aired Nov. 30. The next parts will be transmitted Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21, from 2 to 3 p.m. CST. Topics include the following: Part One: The Sacraments in General and the Eucharist. Part Two: The Sacraments of Responsibility: A Commit- ment to Care (Marriage and the Domestic Church; Holy Or- ders and the Ecclesial Family). Part Three: The Sacraments of Initiation: A Commitment to Belong. Part Four: The Sacraments of Healing: A Commitment to Return. $19.98) still offers a rousing town flavor of "I good time for anyone inter- ested in grand adventures with some greater purpose than special effects. There are other sorts of ad- ventures besides the action va- riety. Use your armchair to go "Around the World in 80 Days" (1956; Warner, $29.98), safari to "King Solomon's Mines" (1950; MGM/UA, $19.95) or search for the fabled "Lost Horizon" (1937; Columbia TriStar, $19.95). 5. "Meet Me in St. Louis" (1944; MGM/UA, $19.95) is a perfect family musical, loaded with charming nostalgia, mem- orable songs and a splendid cast. Others may prefer the lyri- cal Austrian locales of "The Sound of Music" (1965; CBS/Fox, $24.98), the small- Man" (1962; or any of a musical favorites. 6. "I (1948; Turner, enduring in the de War I.
