PAGE 2 THE GUARDIAN, AUG. 30, 1974 From the Manasing Desk.. i Amateur guitarists plunk-a- plunk-a-plunking during Mass ...... and singing  " devotional  lyrics that sound like melancholy country music give rise to many ques- tions in the minds of older Catholics. Traditionally, Gregorian Chant and music derived from it have been pre-eminent in the church. So has the pipe organ. And both were reaffirmed as pre-eminent by Vatican Council II. The Council also cited the Motu Proprio of St. Pope Plus X on sacred music as explaining "more precisely the ministerial function rendered by sacred music in the service of the Lord." This is what that great saint had to say on the use of modern music at Mass: "... Since modern music has risen mainly to serve profane uses, care must be taken that musical compositions in this Glenmary Fathers Told Physical Condition Affects Spiritual Life Little Rock -- Father Vincent Dwyer of the Center for Human Development, Winona, Minn., told the Glenmary Fathers at their 21st annual mission congress here last week that recreating and keeping one's body physically fit is closely related to spiritual life. Exercise and nutrition are good for ascestism, he said, and ascetism is the other side of prayer. Father Dwyer said "the be free from reminiscences of theatrical motives, and be not fashioned, even in their ex- ternal forms, after the manner of profane pieces." A nnn-musician is in no position to judge accurately whether some of the tunes used at Mass nowadays violate these norms. But everyone knows whether the music enhances his vacuum" created by aban- donment of external exercises is now being filled by per- sonally-selected and less rigidly formulated responses to "God's speaking to us." Ascestism or discipline today is less in the form of external penances, largely self- controlled, he asserted. Today it is discipline demanded by dialoguing "to which the Holy Father called all Christians in his first encyclical 'Ecclesiam Suam.' " This, he declared, is a discipline that demands the self denial necessary for listening and hearing people and for listening to God speak to us through others, through His Church, through nature and the world. Timing with regard to when to speak and when to be silent is another part of the dialogue of purifying, Father Dwyer said. One's concept of himself, he its founding in 1939 has been to make Catholic ministry available to all of America. There are 599 counties" that do not have a resident priest. Most of those counties are in remote areas of the deep South and Appalachia. The pattern followed by the missioners is to settle in a priestless area and reach out to the unchurched and to any Catholics living in the community until a church is established. Priests and Brothers of Glenmary move into a country only when invited by the bishop. Once a parish is functioning satisfactorily, the missioners move on to another priestless area and start anew. The meeting in Little Rock closed with a Jubilee Liturgy in honor of two Glenmary priests who celebrated their 25th an- niversary of ordination, Fathers Patrick O'Donnell and Robert Berson.

Priests and religious across America keenly feel the need to share their spiritual insights and problems among them- sieves, on a deep level, Father Dwyer said. Groups to facilitiate this interaction are springing up to give opportunity for priests and religious to share and support each other. His Excellency Bishop An- drew J. McDonald of Little Rock welcomed more than 100 members of the Glenmary society to their first congress in Arkansas. It was held at St. John's Catholic Center.

IL Gary, Ind., episcopal advisor of ACCCA, charged that society has not addressed itself to the victims of heinous crimes nor their families. "Society takes a hard attitude toward the per- petrators of a crime, but not the victims," he asserted. Bishop Grutka reiterated the statement of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops on prison reform, that " 'society has a right to protect itself against lawbreakers and even to exact just and measured Hymns CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 like that, but since we can't throw out all the hymns the people know, the task is to rephrase some of the lines and spruce up the text." Father Collins said that the hymns finally selected will be printed and mailed to delegates before the meeting of the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions in Spokane, Wash., Oct. 13-17, "so they'll have something to react to." "It is very difficult," he said, "to compile between the covers of one book music of sufficient diverse styles to satisfy the varied needs of the people of this country. What may be sacred to one may be secular to another, and what may be secular to one, may be tran- scendental to another." Synod CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 the close of the Second Vatican Council. The purpose of a synod of bishops is to present the Pope and the Church's central ad- ministration with the thoughts, feelings and hopes of local Churches around the world. Although a synod has no legislative authority, unless the Pope personally and directly delegates such authority to it when it is in session, its views and final resolutions are a matter of record and taken into consideration by the Church's offices for future policy The "Working document" notes that five "relator" bishops have been assigned the task of explaining or presenting specific topics in the discussion. Archbishop Joseph L. Ber- nardin of Cincinnati will represent the Bishops of North America, Australia and Oceania. The synod will be formally opened by a Mass celebrated hy Pope Paul in the Sistine Chapel Sept. 27. The first working session will take place tbe following day and the discussions are expected to last about a month. of Justice, and Father John J. the financial obligati Foley, ACCCA president, for- victims' families.
