The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana --On the Record-- YOU CAN MAKE HISTORY (YOUNG AGAIN) Living in the now By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST I can feel the time closing in/I can feel the years/Crawling through my skin/And if I doubt myself/I can count on the rain/To cover the tears/Of this aging game But I can count on you/To play your part/I don't miss a beat/Of your animal heart/And when you push from behind/I know I can/Cover a mountain/With the palm of my hand REFRAIN Oh babe you can make history/Young again/You can rewrite it,/You could decide/The things that should/Or shouldn't have been/You could look at me/In the scheme of things/Oh babe, you could make history/Young again I can watch the weeks sweeping by/[ can rec- ollect the hearts/Hangingout to dry/When the world shuts down/I can touch my fears/I can hear lost youth/Ringing in my ears But I lost nothing/When I gained you/You just blew me away/With yesterday's news/And when you run your fingers/Down my spine/it's like throwing a switch/On the hands of time (REPEAT REFRAIN) Ancient minds, ancient lives/Got a way of comin' round/If I knew then what I know now/I'd find a way back, back in time/i'd make it back to you somehow Written by Elton John/Bernie Taupin Sung by Elton John Copyright (c) 1996 by William .4,. Bong Limited (PRS) & Wretched Music (ASCAP), 1996, MCA Records Inc. Elton John's "Love Songs" offers some of his best music from the last three decades. On the new disc are "oldies" like "Your Song" and "Daniel," plus great hits from the '80s and '90s such as "The One" and "Circle of Life." The CD also includes new releases like his cur- rent chart cassingle "You Can Make History (Young Again)." As a writer and musician, John ranks among the best on the planet during the past half century. Teens and young adults are not likely to notice how quickly time passes. This is natural, since most of their lives lie ahead of them. Consequently, John's message in this song easily could be missed. Or some might think the message is directed to some "older" group -- like parents! Perhaps it does take some aging such lyrics as "lost youth ringing in my feeling "the time closing in." Yet, the me of an important spiritual truth: tant time in anyone's life is now. Whether one is a teen, a ent, this day is God's gift to you.

Ratings are also given for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "The Crucible" (20th Century Fox) A group of girls stir hysteria in 1692 Salem, Mass., when they confess seeing some of their neighbors consorting with the devil, but matters get out of hand after a Boston magistrate (Paul Scofield) arrives and the number of accused grows to include the wife (Joan Allen) of a farmer (Daniel Day-Lewis) denounced by a teenage girl (Winona Ryder) who wants to marry him. Directed by Nicholas Hytner from Arthur Miller's adaptation of his 1953 play, the drama vividly re-creates the period's fear of witchcraft and the children's exploitation of it, though the personal level of the tragedy lacks the same emotion- al conviction. Period violence including torture and hangings, brief nudity and a few coarse words. The USCC classification is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rat- ing is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. "101 Dalmatians" (Disney) Charming live-action remake of the 1961 Disney cartoon in which English pets and barn- yard animals unite to rescue a litter of precious puppies from being turned into a polka-dotted fur coat for wicked fashionplate Cruella DeVil (Glenn Close). Directed by Stephen Herek, the endearing family story proceeds at a bracing pace, with an amus- ingly over-the-top caricature by Close, fairy tale:like visuals and a sprinkling of slapstick con- frontations. The USCC classifi- cation is A-I -- general patron- age. The MPAA rating is G -- general audiences. "Ridicule" (Miramax Zoe) Lush costume drama set at the court of Versailles in 1783 as an altruistic country engineer (Charles Berling) discovers he must first bed the king's cunning mistress (Fanny Ardant) and develop the art of witty sarcasm before he can win the king's ear. Directed by Patrice Leconte, the satirical period piece focuses on the rampant decadence and superficiality of court life that culminated a few years later in the French Revolution. Subti- tles. Brief violence including a suicide, fleeting bedroom scenes and gratuitous frontal male nudity. The USCC classification is A-IV -- adults, with reserva- tions. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Shine" (Fine Line) Remarkable fact-based story of an Australian musical prodigy who suffers a mental collapse as a youth (Noah Taylor) because of his iron-willed father (Armin Mueller-Stahl), then resumes a brilliant career as classical pianist in middle age after he (Geoffrey Rush) weds an under- standing woman (Lynn Red- grave). Director Scott Hicks gives a universal dimension to this story of the damage done by a father's possessive, destructive love being patient, tic violence, a scene and USCC adults. 13 -- parents are tioned that be inappropriate under 13 FLOWERS Complete DIE FREE-' TY-WIDE I LIVERY  (812) 1 Bob 1000 West Organist needed for parish liturgies Various options available.
