Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson, as Queen Mary of Scotland (a Stuart) and Elizabeth of England (a Tudor), respectively, slug it out dramatically and politically in a contest of the wits and wills between two utterly egotistical but otherwise completely op- posite personalities. (A-III). Studying Theology in Stuttgart Eight weekly classes for adults of Holy Rosary parish provided an in-depth study of Father Melvin Farreil's book, "Theology for Parents and Teachers." The religious education program, which concluded Nov. 26, was directed by Sister M. Michael O.P., of St. Mary's parish, Helena, where she is religious education coordinator, assisted by her Stuttgart counterpart, Sister M. Yvonne, O.S.B. Jesus CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 that God was personified in Him, was uniquely present in Him, and that when man ex- periences Him, he experiences the Father who is present in Him. No wonder He was crucified for blasphemy! YET, FOR ALL that Jesus did identify Himself in a messianic role, He was immensely human. We identify with Jesus because we see Him in the familiar struggles faced by all human beings -- hunger, fatigue, rejection, disillusionment, decision-making, death. What's more, it is His humanness that is the key to our salvation. "ALL REVELATION occurs, as the Gospel says, because "the Word was made flesh," wrote theologian Anthony Padovano. "We are not redeemed in the divinity of Christ. We are redeemed precisely in His humanity. This is the whole point of the Gospel message."

II 'HEW' IS FETICIDAL Washington (NC)-- Officials of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare have admitted to NC News Service that HEW has been and con- tinues to finance,abortions as a method of family planning despite an understanding that Congress intended that this not be done. Guardian Ads Are A Good Investment I business in this world. Each man must discover for himself how to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, forgive enemies, and do good to those who persecute him. Each man must discover for himself what it means to love, to be just, to be a peacemaker. YET THE GREATEST mistake is to think one can carry on all alone and by himself the work initiated by Jesus. Jesus triggered off a,new kind of relationship, a corporate life, a community -- the Church - where, in the name of Jesus, men would bind themselves to the message of Jesus and live their lives according to its guidelines; proclaim His Good News; eat the "Supper" together in joy, jubilation, and expectation of sharing His unending life; and by their lives make Jesus effective in all ages, times and places, keeping God wedded to humanity. () 1974 NC News Service SCN Repeat Ban on Abortions Nazareth, Ky.
