PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, APRIL 4, 1969 Church Revises Ritual for MarriaEe Vatican City (NC) -- The Church has given the bride and bride- groom a new marriage ceremony that draws attention to them as the ministers of the sacrament of Matrimony. Instead of simply replying: "I do" to the question of the priest, they themselves utter the full de- claration that they are man and wife. This is a return to a custom prevalent before the Council of Trent where each spouse express- ed the full sacramental formula. Under the new rite, the priest prefaces the moment of the con- ferring of the sacrament with three questions establishing the freedom of the two to marry, their de- termination to be faithful to one another, and their purpose of ed- i i,ii i i Charter a Bus!

Another feature highlighting the spouses as the essential actors in this sacramental moment is the speaking of the full formula of the exchange of rings by each spouse, instead of by the priest. The Congregation of Rites, in issuing the so-called "typical rite," leaves the local bishops' conferences free to depart from it where local custom seems to demand. This freedom extends even to the wording of the in- terrogation by the priest and of the formula of the sacrament as spoken by the spouses. However, the new marriage rit- ual itself specifies certain divergencies that can be selected. The ritual, bearing the date of March 19, was made public 10 days later. It goes into effect, however, on July 1, and this un- usually long period before it be- comes effective is designed to give various national liturgical committees time to draft at least a provisory edition in the local languages.

Atheistic P ressure Applied to U.S. Army Washington (NC) -- Under in- structions from Secretary of De- fense Melvin R. Laird, the Army is reviewing plans to drop ref- erences to God and religion from its mandatory character guidance courses usually taught by chap- lains. The elimination of such refer- ences was a response to complaints by the American Civil Liberties Union that the lectures, required for all soldiers, would have the effect of indoctrination in religion. But the disclosure of plans to heed these complaints drew sharp ob- jections in Congress. The issue came up with proposed publication of revisions to a manual that outlines the teaching of moral responsibility to members of the Army. Recruits must attend four hours of such lectures in basic training and later join with all soldiers in further sessions for one hour each month, Ever Wonder... . . .whether a priest who marries ever asks himself "Was it worth it?" ! i Reading The Guardian KEEPS A CATHOLIC INFORMED l The00(}uardi Official ?ublication of the q)iocese of ltle Published Weekly by The Guardian Press, Inc., ZS00 N.
