Now Father Gentile is keep- ing the painting in a bank vault while he awaits bids from museum curators and art galleries for the work by Peter von Cornelius.

WOULD VISIT U.S. In an hour-long interview, the Dalai Lama expressed in- terest in the spiritual shifts of American young people. Sources in his entourage said the Dalai Lama had put out discreet feelers for per- mission to visit the United States last year. His plans were discouraged, they said, because of Washington's pre- occupation with improving re- lations with China. "The mental unrest that is there, I am very interested in it." the Dalai Lama said. "I want to be involved in it. I want to meet these people and talk with them to see if there is method or not. 'As I am a religious per- son. 1 am just sitting and praying I want to do some- thing." The crew-cut Lama, believed to be the 14th reincarnation of a deity, rises with the sun and drapes himself in his red robes.

The Dala; Lama ruled Tibet from the time he was picked from an outlying Tibetan vil- lage until Chinese soldiers de- prived him of his authority in 1951. He fled Tibet during a blinding dust storm in 1959 after an unsuccessful revolt. About other Tibetans have run from home since then to escape the Chinese occupation.

By GEORGE CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) With the devil getting increased attention these says as part of a rash of interest in the occult, a Roman Catholic theologian suggests that Christianity eliminate from its teachings all ideas of a personal devil. "True Christianity neither needs nor should it desire such a fallacious said Rev. Peter J. Riga of St. Mary's College, Moraga, Calif. He said the concept served m ancient times to explain evil influences in the world and also is used to symbolize that reality in the Bible but that it makes for confused Scout policy changes SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Two hours before Boy Scout leaders were to appear in federal court to answer a dis- crimination suit Friday the Mormon Church announced it has changed its policy and will no longer prevent Black Boy Scouts from becoming senior patrol leaders in its troops. The guideline regarding the senior patrol leader was not intended to discriminate against said Spencer W Kimball, president of the 3 3 million member Church of Jesus Christ ot Latter-day Saints (Mormon) The guideline had required that the senior patrol leader be deacons quorum president in the sponsoring Mormon ward. Blacks cannot hold the office of deacon or any other office in the church's priesthood The change in policy does not affect Blacks' status in the church. Church officials say it would take a revelation from God to do that. The suit was brought by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo- ple against the national and local Boy Scouts and a Mormon sponsored troop where two Black Scouts had allegedly been denied con- sideration for appointment as senior patrol leader because of their race. superstition in terms of modern understanding. "As we move further into modern history, belief in a personal devil will only prove more and more of an em- barrassment to true Christianity. he wrote in U S Catholic, published in Chicago by the Claretian Fa- thers He said Christianity is "absolutely removed from all forms of magic and super- which are being generated by interest in the occult "For that reason we ought to remove from Christianity every vestige of belief in devils at least as truly personal entities and the forms of rites of exorcism to drive out the devil. 'We may certainly keep the traditional language to ex- press symbolically the reality of sin and evil, but in our catechesis (teaching) it ought to bo understood as a sym- bol. Father Riga, a prolific author and lecturer, said that in many ways the idea of a personal devil nowadays can be damaging and, in a sense, contradicts basic Christian belief. "It seems to serve as an es- cape from human responsibili- ty by attributing our predica- ment to forces over which we have no control." he said. (There's a common phrase for it- The devil made me do "This seems to contradict the more basic Christian teaching of man's freedom un- der the grace of God. whereby man can determine his own destiny, lor better or worse." He said that although the Bi- ble includes many references to angels and devils, modern scripture study indicates they are not necessarily "personal entities" and "probably are symbolic of reality He said belief in a personal devil has "never officially been defined by the church." although the idea was used in the past to portray many afflictions now understood as having natural and psychic causes God's team gets ready for games Catholics laud women priests A schedule of Christian ac- tivities saluting the 1975 Canada Winter Games is beginning to assemble in Lethbridge Games publicity officer Ray Morton reports the society has approached Rev.

It was "contrary to the con- stitution and canons of the Rt. Rev. John Allin. the top Episcopal prelate, said in a statement this week. He said that the four bishops who officiated at the regula- tion-defying ordinations in Philadelphia Monday "ex- ceeded their authority and have not acted for the church, as is the norm in ordinations." "Accordingly, the or- dinations are irregular, and may be found he said. At the same time, bishops of the women's home dioceses moved to suspend them from the ministry, or otherwise prohibit them from exercising any priestly function. On the other hand, messages of commendations came from two reformist Ro- mand Catholic groups which advocate admission of women to the priesthood in that church. The U.S. section of St. Joan's International Alliance, a Catholic group working for equal participation of women in church affairs, said it re- joiced at the ordination of the Episcopal women. The Episcopal Church, along with the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches, traces its line of ministerial authority back to the time of Jesus' apostles in what is called the "apostolic succession." The Episcopal Church is the U.S. branch of the worldwide Anglican communion. The National Association of Laity, a Catholic group ad- vocating church renewal and reform, also commended the ordination of the Episcopal women, saying they "have with courage and dignity steadfastly prepared to answer the call to serve the Christian community as priests."
