Dear Friends in Christ: For many years, the faithful through- out the world have appreciated the restructuring of the Mass in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council and at the direction of His Holiness, Pope Paul VI. Basically, the vast majority of our people have accepted this reform and have appreciated it. The wisdom of John Paul II indicates; however, that there are faithful Catholic people who have difficulty with our current liturgi, cal reforms. Our Holy Father has asked the bishops of the world to provide for the needs of these people. In consultation with the Priests Senate, I have assigned Msgr. Gaston Hebert, Vicar General, to offer the Tridentine Mass, using the Missal of 1962, in Morris Chapel, St.John's Center, 2500 North Tyler St., Little Rock. This Mass will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11, at 2 PM. Because of the shortage of priests and because the numbers of people who want this Mass are spread out over the whole diocese in small clusters, I am not sure what further action will be taken. I hope that this accommodation will at least meet the needs of some of our people. With-best wishes for a happy and blessed New Year, I remain, your friend, Bishop of Little Rock :100 rieties of Gourmet Coffee & Teas Deaiuned fortIle uoo.-s ,, io 6 lmorW NswYork mjo Stylo Meat & Clmosea L-~aales & The~e~ Sawats~. aU.endb~g Christ the King P~'~h LASCALARESTAURANT Lunch MI- 11700:::-:;1::30.: Dinner M:: S:.I 5:30( : 10 00::: .... 2 721 :Ka Vana ugh:, LR::: 663 -1196 Advertise your restaurant here.

Catholic Rockville Centre, NY (CNS) - "Free- dom of the press is necessary in every society, including the Chu 'ch," said the president of the Catholic Press Associa- tion in a statement issued for Catholic Press Month, observed in February. "Speaking the truth with love is not always good politics," Fr. John T. Ca- toir said, "but if the Catholic press is to be an authentic press there must be room even for the unpopular views of critics." In his remarks, Fr. Catoir, who also heads The Christophers, said, "Respect- ful criticism often contains the seed of purification and reform. No human organization is above criticism. The Catholic journalist is always respectful of orthodoxy. Reporting on the news and giving it careful analysis, however, is a job. that can bring us into areas of tension. This is a healthy tension for all concerned," Fr. Gatoir quoted a recent from Bishop Karl Lehmann W. Germany, who "insisted that Catholic press cannot be made into extension of the long arm of!
