Kodell Writer In Bible Work Subiaco -- Father Jerome Kodell, O.S.B., a columnist for The Guardian, has taken part in a three-year project, the "Collegeville Bible Commentary." Father Jerome wrote the commentary for The Gospel of Luke in the project sponsored by the Liturgical Press, Collegeville, Minn. More than 20 years ago, The Liturgical Press pioneered in producing a series of popular biblical commentary booklets for Catholics. In the intervening years, research and study of Scripture have contributed much to understanding the Bible that could not be incorporated in the periodic revisions of these booklets. With the decision to inaugurate a new series, a search was begun for a general editor that resulted in the selection of Robert F. Karris, O.E.M. Father Karris, professor of New Testament studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, is author of several books on New Testament topics and editor-in-chief of the "Catholic Biblical Quarterly" monograph series, editor of "Read and Pray," the "Herald Biblical Booklets" and Doubleday's "Invitation" series. Father Karris also selected other authors to write the commentary for the individual bo- oks of the "Collegeville Bible Commentary:" Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., The Gospel of Matthew; Philip Van Linden, C.M., The Gospel of Mark; Neal M. Flanagan, O.S.M., The Gospel of John; William S. Kurz, S.J., The Acts of the Apostles; Dr. John J. Pilch, Galatians and Romans; Mary Ann Getty, R.S.M., First and Second Corinthians; Ivan Havener, O.S.B., First Thessalonians, Philippians, Philemon, Second Thessalonians, Colossians, Ephesians; Jerome H. Heyrey, S.J., First and Second Timothy, Titus, James, First and Second Peter, Jude; George W. MaeRae, S.J., Hebrews, and Dr. Pheme Perkins, The Book of Revelations. Each volume in the 11-volume series contains the complete text of the New Testament book being studied (in the New American Bible translation), commentary on the text on the same or facing page, study questions and discussion topics for each section and maps and illustrations to familiarize the reader with the lands of the Bible. Individual volumes in the series will sell at $2.50; the 11-volume set will be $25. Release of the series is scheduled for early next spring.

I Father Jerome Kodell Rural Priests Hear Lecture On Justice Plymouth, Mich. (NC) - Catholics must be led to see the connection between personal spiritual life and social justice, a Capuchin priest told the 1982 National Catholic Rural Life Conference consultation. "We need to show them that God is calling us to be concerned about social justice and we need to provide correct information and historical perspective," said Capuchin Father Martin Pable, director of the Capuchin novitiate program in Racine, Wis. More than 100 rural life ministers from across the country attended the consultation at St. John's Provincial Seminary in Plymouth. "Everyone is struggling with integrating the church's Gospel mesage into their own spiritual life and ministry," Father Pable said. "But to achieve that involves un- derstanding, emotional change and behavioral change." The Capuchin said personal conversion to social justice can be hampered by an inherited mindset which holds that: - The church should stay out of politics and economics and there should be separation of church and state. -- Religion is a private and individual matter, a "compartment" of life. - Through education, people can lift themselves up by their bootstraps and suc- ceed in the world. - The church is meant to comfort and uplift Catholics, rather than to challenge them. For the past 100 years, the church's role as a supporter of the government has been emphasized and people are conditioned to accept the status qua, Father Pable said. There are strong immigrant roots among American Catholics, he continued. Im- migrants and their descendants, he noted, worked hard to be accepted into the main- stream, to prove that they're good American citizens and that they accept the system. People are uneasy about looking critically at a system into which they tied, expecially when the challenge to criticize the system comes from the church, Father Pable said. "But the people must be reminded that the church has never stayed out of politics and economics when they touched on moral issues," he said, citing passages from the Old Testament to the writings of Pope John XXIII. People being helped to make a personal conversion to an awareness of social justice must not feel threatened nor feel that they are Burses $7,535 In Little Rock -- Three new burses opened and a total of $7,535 was during the month of October to help the education of men for the hal, A donation of $5,000 opened the Miss Craft Burse, while $600 was Father Bernard DeBosier Burse and the Father James P.
