Cornell NKW YORK (AP) - The Roman Catholic Church issued a revised ritual Wednesday for penance which loosens up the format and allows either for retaining or eliminating the agc-o I d , darkened confessional booth. “The ‘box’ as we have known it may be done away with,” the Rev. Thomas Korsnicki, associate director of the U.S. bishops’ liturgy committee, said of the revamped, variable procedures. “The more likely setting will be the confessional room.” Except in unusual circumstances, however, the new provisions do not alter the standing requirement for individual confession for forgiveness in case of grave or ‘‘mortal” sin, nor do they deal with the theology on this point. Final Phase The new rites, issued by the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship as the final phase of the Churches current iter-gical reforms also point up the communal aspects of sin and forgiveness in relation to others, rather than focusing only on the individual. Reflecting that broader ap- BIG GEORGE! proach, the name of the rite itself is changed to the “Sacrament of Reconciliation” or “Penance”. It has been called “Confession”, which implied it was only a private matter. 'File now penitential rites came at a time of heavy decline in the frequency of confessions among Catholics. Father Kros-nicki caid the dropoff may have been due to the lack of community orientation which is now provided for. “It’s an invitation to recognize anew the indispensable rule of the community in thus sacrament. Ifs an invitation to place the sacrament of reconciliation into the entire dynamics of Christian life,” he said. The revisions do cull for freer, less formalized conversation between priest and penitent, along with use of Scripture and spontaneous prayer, and also allows for shifting the setting out of the dim, old “box,” with its screen separating the two participants. English Translation The 121-page document in Latin, called “Ordo Paeniten-tiae” (Order of Penance), still is to be fully translated into English, and will be implemented in this country only after a full by Vk'fld Portch "Have the exact change ready or the driver will snap at you.” English translation ii, approved! by U.S. bishops and the Vatican probably within a year. Father Krosnicki said some Catholics had hoped the new penitential order would offer greater leeway in permitting both communal confession and general absolution (forgiveness) — a pattern prevailing in much of Protestantism. However, this remains an option in Catholicism only in spe etal situations such as times of danger or in mission areas where priests are scarce. The Vatican approach on this score was “more conservative” than some had expected, Father Krosnicki said. Nine different alternatives for these community penitential services are provided in the new ritual. They include services for special seasons, such as Lent land Advent, and for the sick and children, and also for regular use. In many parishes, they may become monthly observances, Father Krosnicki said. New Services Individual confession may occur at a juncture within the new services or apart from them. Under the old usage a penitent knelt in the confessional box and preceded a recitation of his sins with the words: “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.” In the new approach the priest may greet the penitent face to face “with words of friendship and kindness,” inviting him to trust in God’s forgiving mercy and reading a brief Bible text about it. After the penitent confesses his sins, he says a prayer of sorrow for him, in his own word* or in a set form. Then the priest extends his hands over the penitent’s head, saying: “God, the Father of mercies, has reconciled the world to Himself through the death and resurrection of His Son and has poured forth the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of sms. May He grant you pardon and peace through the ministry of the Church. And I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” WIN AT BRIDGE by Oswald & .lames Jacoby Here is another Paul Lukacs test-your-play problem from the Bridge World magazine. You find yourself in a rather normal six notrump contract. West opens the three of clubs and it is up to you to play the hand. Paul points out that you must take the heart finesse some time or other so he suggests that after winning the club you cash dummy’s king of hearts; lead toward your hand and finesse the jack. It loses and we can assume that West will lead another club. If you don’t want to go down more than one you play spades right away, lf you want to take the best play for your contract you should cash all your heart, diamond and club winners to see if you can get any information about your opponents’ distribution. You do! Everyone follows so you are right back where you started except that you have noted the fall of the spot cards from East and West and it looks as if West started with only VACRRD Sensed The bidding has been:    7 West North Fast South Pass iv Pass ?

John Dent (D-Pa.) the subcommittee chairman, said there appeared to be new Republican support for the house proposal. Both the new senate and house bills would extend coverage of the wages and hours law to about seven million additional workers, bringing total eov-eiage to 54 million. Included for the first time would be about one million domestics and five million federal, state and local government employes. In addition, 725,000 more retail store and service workers would be brought under the law. Auditions Set for Play at Mt.
