Advent With Good , Pope Tells Youngsters marks the cycle of preparation to celebrate the birth of Christ. In the main part of the Pope's talk, he reflected upon the sacrament of marriage as treated in St. Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Marriage "is a sacrament of redemption given to men and women as a gift," he said. The Pope said that married people are called "to a life of chastity...proper to their own state in life" and to a way of life, "according to the 'spirit' and not 'according to the flesh.'" Life according to the spirit, said the Pontiff. implies that a married couple "canremain faithful for life in an in- dissoluble union, and they can discover that true freedom which allows them to be a gift to one another. 'When the couple lives 'according to the spirit,' they place their masculinity and femininity at the service of procreation," said the Pope. "They possess a profound awareness of the sanctity of human life, especially of the human life to which they give origin in their own children as co-operators in the mystery of creation." The Pope directed a special message to several honeymooning couples at the audience. "I entrust today to the most Holy Virgin your ideals and your plans to build your infant family as a 'miniature church.' I accompany you in this, your walk of faith and of charity, with my apostolic blessing," he said. Attending the audience were 32 members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers who are attending a renewal course in Rome. Among them were six Religious from the United States and two from Canada. The Pope mentioned the group specifically and told them that the church "esteems the evangelical and eeclesial consecration that you freely make to Jesus Christ, and she values highly your generous commitment to building up the kingdom of God. "My prayer," added the Pope, "is that you will always find great joy in loving Christ and the church." The Congregation of Christian Brothers, often called the Irish Christian Brothers because they were founded' in Ireland, has 500 members in the United States and administers 25 US. high schools and Iona College in New Rochelle, N.Y. The Pope concluded the audience, as he has done for the last several months, with a prayer for the people in his native Poland. He quoted from a letter he received from Poland. The letter said, "Despi-te our enormous weakness, there remains still the capacity to h)ve, and so our churches are full of prayer and of hope." The Pope did not give the name of the letter writer. "Christ is, constantly, the hope of the world and its expectation," said the Pope. 'That is expressed every year in a special way in tim season of Advent," he said. "This truth reaches all, in particular those who suffer IBore. City (NC) -- Pope 1 1I has urged young during Advent "to with good deeds Christ ,is coming."

In an article inThe Times of London, Muggeridge, who will be 80 next March, attributed his conversion in large part to Mother Teresa of Calcutta, founder of the Missionaries of Charity. In 1968, he produced a television documentary depicting her commitment to the destitute of India. The dbcumentary and a book based on it were both titled "'Something Beautiful for God." "Words cannot convey how beholden I am to her," he wrote in The Times. "She has given me a whole new vision Tulsa, Okla. -- The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults RCIA, 19721 will receive emphasis in the Southwest Liturgical Conference Study Week to be hosted by the Diocese of Tulsa at the Ex- celsior Hotel Jan. 17-20.1983. A speaker on the program is Father Ravmond Kemp, ,Secretary fro: Parish Life and Worship in the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. He has been active in parish im- plementation of the RCIA since the mid-70's. He has written of his pastoral ex- perience in the Sadlier publication, "A Journey of Faith." In speaking to theologians and professional liturgists in January, 1982, Father Kemp gave this call: "If this generation of adults does not comprehend what the Lord is doing in the catechumenate and in the (baptismal) water, we leaders are to blame. Give us, all of you, a baptismal theology that shows itself in the challenge of the gospel proclaimed and in the celebrations of the liturgical year. Give us an un- derstanding of baptism that grounds us in priesthood, that is the source of our power and our ministry in the Church." Father Kemp speaks with the authority and directness of a practitioner, says Sister Benedicta Boland. "We are very fortunate to benefit from his pastoral expertise in the RCIA. Every(me will be h)uched by h'is honesty and clarily ()1 message." Other specialists in the RCIA emphasis are Dr. Mark Searle frlma tile Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy.
