And it asserted that Dutch theologians are imposing their own magisterium (teaching authority) upon the legitimate magisterium of the bishops. This last criticism grew out of the affair of the controversial I)uteh New Catechism. The author of the study, L'Os- servatore Romano's Associate Editor Federico Alessandrinl, observed that modern consensus puts the profane and the produc- tive over the sacred and the religious. In such conditions criticism of Church life tends to grow sharper and faith can give way entirely, or there may be an attempt to restore values in the person and the ecclesia/ community and to rebuild the unity of one's life. "These various attitudes exist everywhere and manifest them- selves in more or less acute ways," he said. "In Holland, because of reasons of environ- ment which we have already tried to define, they show themselves more dramatically than else- where." Apparently answering some vio- lently critical accounts in the Italian press of January's Dutch National Pastoral Council, Ales- sandrini remarked: "Clearly at such meetings one might hear anything. Yet if we detach the more radical asser- tions from their context and present them as the genuine expression of Dutch Catholicism we might draw a false picture using true details." Turning to the Dutch New Cat- eehism, he wondered aloud at the resistance of some Dutch theolo- gians to making the clarifications required by the commission of cardinals Pope Paul VI appoin- I Phone FR 2.2277 MAJgTIC . . .

"It may be surprising that a theological faculty does not realize the need for this and should judge it damaging to its own authority," he asserted. "It may be sur- prising that a theologian designated by the Dutch bishops to contri- bute his abilities to this par- tiai and limited work of revi- sion and elarifieation should con- sider he cannot do it for reasons of 'conscience and honor.' In fact we consider all aspects of the question, it is evident that all that was asked for was a clear exposition of do,trine in harmony with that express and authentic or- thodoxy which in the Chureh is and must be the concern and the pride of every individual theologian." He asserted that the hypo- theses of theological research "must be confirmed in the light of do,trine by those to whom God has given the mandate to gov- ern and to guide. Unlessthiswere so, the danger of doctrinal and moral deviations would arise and could become anguishing. "This seems to be among the most acute points of the crisis of our Dutch brothers: the sup- erimposition of a direct 'magis- terium' of theologians upon the ordinary and legitimate magis- terium of the bishops. The bis- hops must take research into account but it is proper to the pastoral office to ascertain whether that research accords with revelation and tradition." Of the attention paid to avant- garde Catholics by Dutch eommun- ,cations media, he said: "The fact is that in most eases the means ot social, communica- tion, which the Dutch have known how to develop in an admirable way, reflect the attitude of the TV Rigs Upset Plans for Jazz Mass in Rome Rome (NC) -- Jazz artist and composer Mary Lou Williams was all ready to perlorm her "Jazz for the Soul" at a Mass in honor of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but things did not work out that way. Television cameramen, photo- graphers and reporters with tape recorders came in such numbers and with such a formidable array of equipment to the chapel at the Pontifical Latin American College where the "Jazz Mass" was to be said that the celebrant had second thoughts. Benedictine Abbot Rembert Weakland, a friend of Miss Wil- liams, announced before the Mass that he would celebrate it without the accompaniment of the jazz combo and chorus. Abbot Weakland explained that unexpected interest from the scores of newsmen who filled the modern circular chapel with their paraphernalia made it necessary to have the music played after the Mass was completed. Abbot Weakland, Abbot Presi- dent of the Benedictine Cortfedera- tion who holds a master's degree in piano from the Juilliard School of Music in New York, said he decided to have the music played separately "as an examination of conscience to know whether we have really come here tohear Mass or hear a jazz concert." A t Communications Lab in Pine Bluff This was a scene last Sunday in PIne Bluff as more than 130 Catholic young people gathered in K. of C. Hail for a "Commanl- cations Lab." They came from Lake Village, Cross, It, Warren, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Slovak, Brinkley, Little Reek, North Little Reek, Pine Bluff and the Little Reek Air Force Base. Pictured in the foreground, during one of the discussion periods, are, from left: Beth Hooks of the Slovak C.Y.O., Steve King, Little Rock, C.Y.O. president, and Men,ca Drotar of Slovak. Priests who participated with adult advisors from each parish were The Roy. Raymond O'Dwyer, The Ray. John O'Donnell, The Roy. Robert Dlenert and The Rev. Joseph L. Pallo, diocesan C.Y.O. moderator. The purpose of the program was to enable Catholic youth from various sections of the diocese to become better acquainted. minorities, of the avant-garde. This in certain limits can be un- derstandable, but it is not with- out danger. We unfortunately do not have the gift of tongues and therefore we cannot read Dutch and even less can we follow broadcasts. But from what we are told, they harp on a single string. They are said to concede very little to the voiee of the others, that is to say of those who rep- resent the majority of the clergy and Catholic people. "If that is so, there is the risk of deepening the divisions that it is intended to heal. There is the risk that the internal discussion, which should shed light and be of advantage to all, may be smoth- ered. Might it not be feared that a monopoly is being set up by one side and suffered by the other?" WORLD'S FINEST RADIOEAR / HEAING [ Asvs %,._.." \\; LITTLE ROCK HEARING AID CENTER II0 W.
