0 The Message --for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment December 25, 1987 On the Record By CHARLIR MARTIN NC News Service Columnist Love is much more than the feeling this song describes Is This Love? I should have known better/Than to let you go alone/It's limes like these/I can't make it on my own/Wasted days and sleepless nights//md I can't wait to see you again. I find I spend my time/Wailing on your call/How can I tell you babe/My back's against the wall/I need you by my side/To tell me it's all rightY'Cause I don't think I can take anymore. REFRAIN: Is this love That I'm feeling Is this the love That I've been searching for Is this love Or am I dreaming This must be love 'Cause it's really got a hold on me A hold on me. I can't stop the feelin'/I've been this way before/But with you I've found the key/To open any door/I can feel my love for you/Growing stronger day by day/Growing stronger day by day/And I can't wait to see you again/So I can hold you in my arms. REPEAT REFRAIN Is this love/That I'm feeling/is this the love/That I've been searching for/Is this love/Or The following am I dreaming/Is this the love/That I've been sear- chin s for/Is this love/Or am I dreaming/Is this the love/That I've been searching for? Recorded by Whitesnake Written by David Coverdale and John Sykes Copyright (c) 1987 by Whitesnake Music Ltd. Whitesnake's "Is This Love?" climbed into the Top Ten during December, perhaps on its way to becoming the group's second top-rated single. The song describes a person wondering if love is what he is feeling. Apparently he defines love in the romantic sense of feeling close and very at- tracted to another. Whatever he is feeling, his emo- tion is bringing new opportunities into his life because "with you, I've found the key to open any door." Love is a powerful force in our lives. As we enter into 1988, I want to suggest that each of us examine how loving we are to others. I speak of love in a sense that goes beyond the song's description. Romantic love is something most peo- ple seek, but the power of love is far more exten- sive than romance. Each of us can help build a more loving world by allowing our care for others to affect their lives. If you choose to try being more loving in 1988, it is important to keep two points in mind. First, real love is freely given: It does not bargain to receive something in return. Instead, a loving person freely supports others. Second, the choice to be more loving brings a specific focus. How loving you are is shown by your behavior. Love is much more than the feeling the song describes. It is an act that follows upon the deci- sion to do something positive for another. To answer the question, "Is This Love?" , check and see if what you are experiencing leaas to specific caring acts, given freely, without con- cern over what you will receive in return. I challenge you to pick out one goal for love in the coming year. Put this goal in writing and share what you have written with someone you trust. Ask that person to periodically check in with you about whether you are still practicing your work of love during 1988. Such a plan will state your commitment to live in a more loving way throughout this coming year. Your comments are welcome always. Please address to: Charlie Martin, 1218 S.

Huntingburg-Jasper) "Religion New movie has some hilarious moments NEW YORK (NC} -- "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" (Para- mount} is a comedy with Steve Martin as an advertising man trying to get from New York to Chicago for Thanksgiving with his family. His journey becomes a black comedy saga of one travel nightmare after another. Planes are grounded, trains break down and even automobiles catch on fire. Mak- ing the experience even worse is that by chance he is traveling with a talkative, bungling salesman {John Candy}. , : Martin's sarcastic ennui and Candy's effusive geniality play off each other rather well, but the plot situations begin to become predictable, with the audience ahead of most of the disasters. Director John Hughes has turned from teen-age melodramas to try his hand at adult comedy and the results are mixed. Anyone who has had a bad experience with the airlines, railroads or car rental agencies will find many of the situations more realistic than comic. It may not be high comedy, but it does have some hilarious moments. However, because of some rough language and sex- ual references, the U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. $chnitzelbank RESTAURANT scripture teachings based on the daily Mass readings by Father A1 Lauer, a Catholic priest from Cincinnati. : Every Sunday, 10-10:30 a.m. (WNIN-TV 9, Evansville} "Catholic Mass".
