PAGE 6 THE GUARDIAN, FEBRUARY 15, 1974 To Bolster Faith Rural as Well as City Folks Need Holy Year Preparation By Msgr. John George Weber Co-Director, National Catholic Rural Life Conference and leaders of national Church organizations. Cardinal Manning zeroes in on reconciliation because this is part of the double theme, Renewal and Reconciliaton, for the Holy Year. Actually, you cannot have one without the other. If people are made new in the spirit of Christ, as St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians (II Cor. 5, 17-20), they must be recon- "While the universal celebration of the Holy Year begins one year from this Christmas, the year 1974 is the time in which the local Church will begin these first steps toward reconciliation." Thus wrote Timothy Cardinal Manning, chairman of the U.S. Bishops&apos; Committee for the Holy Year, to his fellow Bishops -z-t i Tl'll T'I. cried with their God and their ][All'lll neighbor.

Carlisle By IN ORDER to know sin and its evil, we must have a full knowledge 'of the nature and dignity of man. All things on earth should be and are related to man as their center and crown. But what is man? If we listen to the answers given by man we find ourselves confronted with many divergent and even contradictory opinions. HE MIGHT exalt himself as the absolute measure of all things, or he might debase himself even to the ppint of despair, and so doubt and anxiety result. There is, however, a true answer to the question. Let us listen to the Fathers of Vatican II: "Sacred Scripture teaches that man was created "to the image of God," is capable of knowing and loving his Creator, and was appointed by Him as master of all earthly Creatures that He might subdue them and use them to God's glory. "WHAT IS MAN that you should be mindful of him, or the son of man that you should care for him? You have made him little less than the angels, and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him rule over the works of your hands, putting all things under his feet. (Ps 8, 5-7) (Vat II the dignity of the human person, 12.)" Man is a creature of God and, as a social being, has a relationship to his fellow-man. Man came from God, and his ultimate goal is God, but man discovers that he also has an inclination towards evil; he finds himself engulfed by many evils, which do not stem from thegood Creator. THOUGH MAN is composed of body and soul, man is one; there is the material and the spiritual element. Because of sin he experiences rebellious stirrings in his body, but the very dignity of man demands that he glorify, God, and for- bids him to follow the evil in- clinations of his heart. Man, because of his intellect surpasses the material universe. By employing his talents man has made great progress through the ages in the fields of science, technology and the liberal arts. IN OUR TIME we may speak of superlative victories in his probing of the material world. Yet, man is not satisfied - his 2,320 Mabelvale Pike P.O.
