Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta UFE ON MARS Dr Harold Klein, director of life sciences at the Ames Research Centre in California, says life building amina acids found in a 1969 Australian meteorite (fragment in glass cover) leads to speculation that life exists on the planet Mars. Five years since last Vatican ecunemical council Changes within church plentiful VATICAN CITY (AP) Many new things have occurred in the Roman Catholic Church sines the second Vatican ecu- m e n i c a 1 council ended five years ago this week. Standing a few feet from the altar of a Rome church, a bare- headed, miniskirted girl read an epistle by St. Paul during a mass. A Belgian cardinal, Leo Jo- seph Suenens, attacked the Vati- can's Roman Curia and chal- lenged the way popes are elected. Priests and nuns abandoned their vows in great numbers in order to marry, many with Vat- ican permission. A commission of 30 renowned theologians appointed by Pope Paul laid the foundations for a new theology in which differing views on major Catholic ques- tions became acceptable. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. Mi PHONE 328-76841 Similar facets of change hi the 600-million-member Roman Catholic Church were hardly dreamed of prior to the Vatican council. For traditionalists, both cleri- cal and lay, the winds of change already have swept the church too far from a secure anchorage in which answers to moral and doctrinal issues could be found in simple "yes" and "no" terms. For others, not nearly enough has been altered. They lament that a j'oung woman still cannot serve as an acolyte at the altar, much less study for the priest- hood; and that Cardinal Sue- nens has had a steep uphill struggle in his outspoken cam- paign to democratize ths church. 'LOVE, NOT LAW They want those ex-priests who marry to continue to say mass legitimately. They want their theology to come not so much from theologians as from people feeling their way to a new morality and discipline based on "love Instead of law." But the kind of loosely struc- tured church toward which these "progressives" aim seen distant, if possibls at all. Som theologians sense a kind of re trenching spirit among their co leagues and among the bishop Once-docile laymen, bestowet with new power -and recognitio by the council, raised a storr of protest over one of tie mrx controversial decisions by an modern ban on ar tificial contraception in 1968. The Vatican's position in th storm was summed tip in fh wards one day in by Pop Paul himself: "Renewal, yes arbitrary change, no." Repeatedly, the Pope has dc nounced a "whirlwind" of unai thorized ideas, disobedience an what he recently called "doc trinal deviations, certain mor; scandals and disciplinary unre train t." All this, he say threatens the renewal or tmda ing sst forth by the council. Before the council, almost a Catholic thinkers considerec papal infallibility an tioned concept. Now some thec logians openly challenge th theme of the first Vatican coun til 100 years ago. And many practices though by many Catholics to be imbed ded in their as abstinence from meat on Fridat and the index of condemnec been swept away by the church itself. In today's church, concern for and active aid to the poor, the ignorant and the discriminatec against is considered a cardlna the lack of it a sin. Basically, the Pope has acliieved the image of a socia welfare progressive and has re served some of his most impas- sioned pleas for a halt to wai and more help to the underpri vileged. On disciplinary and moral is sues, the Pope has teen con servative. He has ruled on marriage for priests, and birth control pills or devices for the married. He often condemns sexual permissiveness, trashy movies and cults based on drugs. Pope Paul has gone on recorc as favoring continuing reforms but he wants them without the clamorous criticism and out- right disobedience of papal die- turns that some churchmen see as inevitable in a time 01 change.
