16A.. WednesdayJune 221 994 Star Tribune kqvj ca&ccri.o QWhat is the catechism? A. It's a teaching document divided into four sections: What the church believes (the creed); what the church celebrates (the sacraments); what the church lives (morality based on the commandments); and what the church prays (prayer, especially the Our Father or . Lord's prayer). QWhy is the English version two years behind other Western languages? ' A. American bishops and theologians argued forcefully that the new English catechism should have inclusive language, that is as gender-neutral as possible. At the end of the debate, traditional language was retained. For example, in the inclusive version, one section began: To Live is to Know and Love God, but the final version reads: The Life of Man to Know and Love God. QWhy was the catechism produced? A. Educational and worship leaders in dioceses : around the world were complaining that they didn't have good materials to teach all the changes begun by the Second Vatican Council. QWill people use the new catechism? A. The catechism was written for bishops and teachers, but workshops are being held and more will be held all over the archdiocese to explain it to anyone ; who's interested. The National Conference of Catholic Bishops is producing a video series, as well. QWhy doesn't the catechism include cutting-edge theologies? r A. The catechism is an expression of long-held ' beliefs, and it also is a product of the universal church, ? including all its communities. It is a major teaching ' document and tells people the core beliefs of their church, not the latest developments out of seminars or seminaries. Q Where can I find a copy? A. Parish priests and education directors will be get-,' ting information about the catechism and the book itself will be available. However, anyone can buy a . copy locally at either the St. Patrick's Guild (690-1506) or E.M. Lohmann Co. (222-6801). Paperback price is : $19.95 and hardcover is $29.95. The English version contains an extensive index not included in the other translations and that makes the English version much easier to use, some say. for Catlioli First Century A.D.: Teachings of the apostles gathered into a teaching collection called the Didache. 1429: Council of Tortosa approved a catechism fol-lowing an ecumenical meeting. 1S66: Council of Trent, called to answer the Protestant Reformation, proclaimed the Bible and tradition as a rule of faith and developed a new catechism. 1885: Baltimore catechism developed for Americans. Most American Catholics over the age of 40 can still answer the questions, beginning with: "Who made the world?" 1985: World Synod of Bishops suggests developing an authoritative catechism, in response to the changes following the Second Vatican Council which ended in 1965. Pope John Paul immediately agrees . and in 1986 appoints a commission to begin work. 1989: Third draft sent out for comment, and more than 24,000 amendments are offered. 1992: French version is the first released. 1993: Versions in other Western languages appear. June 22, 1994: English . version available in United States. The new catechism puts Catholic teaching In the context of the modern world. Since it seems there are many more questions raised these days than there were in earlier days, the catechism also Includes responses to the new situations: For example: Only a baptized man validly receives sacred ordination ... For this reason the ordination of women is not possible. A human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience. Every form of social or cultural discrimination in fundamental personal rights on the grounds of sex, race, color, social conditions, language or religion must be curbed and eradicated as incompatible with God's design. B The family should live in such a way that its members learn to care and take responsibility for the young, the old, the sick, the handicapped and the poor. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community. Intentional euthanasia, whatever its forms or motives, is murder. The arms race is one of the greatest curses on the human race ... Basing itself on Sacred Scripture . . . tradition has always declared that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. . . . Under no circumstances can they be approved. Men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies . . . did not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. Now this is the Catholic faith: We worship one God in the Trinity and the Trinity in unity, without either confusing the persons or dividing the substance; for the person of the Father is one, the Son's is another, the Holy Spirit's another; but the Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal. Totino Continued from page 1A ers. She gave millions to charity. Totino, surrounded by family and friends, died of cancer Tuesday at Methodist Hospital in Rochester, Minn. She was 79. "Pillsbury purchased her company in 1975, but it was Rose Totino who captured our hearts. She was a brilliant business woman, a loving wife and mother and the spirit behind our pizza operations," said Paul Walsh, chief executive officer of Pillsbury. Totino, of Fridley, was raised in a Scandinavian neighborhood in northeast Minneapolis, but always took pride in her Italian heritage. She quit Edison High School at 16 and started cleaning houses for $2.50 a week. Her husband Jim, who also quit school, worked in a bakery. She had tasted pizza while visiting relatives in Pennsylvania, where it was very popular. So she started cooking it for friends after PTA meetings. They liked it so much they asked her to bake it for them, which she did, but never took money in return. This small success convinced the To-tinos to start a business. Jim would keep his baker's job for a while, and Rose would operate what came to be known as Totino's Italian Kitchen. But business grew so rapidly that he soon had to join his wife. "We were so worn at night we didn't even count the money," she said in a 1984 interview. "We just put it in a bag. The next day we paid our suppliers, and when there was money left over we knew we were making it." The Totinos' daughter, Joanne El-well, of Fridley, worked in the family business with her husband, Tom, and her sister, Bonnie Brenny, of Fridley. She said there was never a doubt that they could make it work. Her grandson, Steven Elwell, owns the original restaurant on Central Av. Jim and Rose Totino didn't have enough money to build a bakery to make pizza crust, so they concentrated on frozen entrees. The business lost about $150,000 in a year. Jim found a company that could supply prebaked crusts, and got a $50,000 loan for topping and packaging equipment. In 1962 the Totinos' first frozen pizza was produced at a factory in St. Louis Park. It was truth in advertising when their commercials proclaimed: "Nobody makes a pizza like Totino's." The company's kitchen was an office, lab and lunch room where brokers usually were treated to something tasty during negotiations. It expanded and moved to Fridley in 1971 and would be sold four years later to Pillsbury, when Jim's health was failing. He died of a heart attack in 1981. In a 1984 interview, Jerry Levin, Pillsbury's executive in charge of acquisitions and an experienced negotiator, recalled his first formal encounter with Rose Totino: "We offered $ 1 6 million, saying it was a fair price. She wanted $20 million, saying it was God's will. We didn't know how to handle that, so we gave her $20 million." She became the first female vice president at Pillsbury and "as long as her name was on the box, she continued to have an interest in the business." She admitted she wasn't a professional business manager, but knew pizza and how to motivate people. Her talks with the chairman of Haagen-Dazs ice cream paved the way for its acquisition by Pillsbury in 1983. Rod Miley, former president of Totino's, said: "It was a terrific family to work for . . . I've talked to former employees, and we agree we've never worked for a better company since." Rose believed that she owed her good fortune to God. She became devoutly religious many years ago when she heard a Presbyterian preacher on KTIS radio at Northwestern College give a message about how God was able to take care of people's problems. "I always say that the Apostle Paul had his life changed on the road to Damascus, and I had mine on Hwy. 100," she said. She showed appreciation for her spiritual experience with a $3.8 million gift to Northwestern College in Roseville for a fine arts center. She also donated $500,000 to build a homeless shelter for Caring and Sharing Hands, funded an adolescent mental health care center in Fridley and paid for church repairs and a new school in her mother's hometown of Scopoli, Italy. The Rev. Walter Sochacki, former pastor of Immaculate Conception Church in Columbia Heights, where Rose was a member, said she gave her whole life to others and was a steward of the Lord. "People think of her as a person with money, but she was the first person to volunteer to serve doughnuts and coffee or scrub tables," said Sochacki, now pastor of St. Rose of Lima in Roseville. In 1980 Grace High School in Fridley was renamed Totino-Grace in the Totinos' honor. They donated more than $1.5 million for projects at the school, including a sprinkler system and a new gym. Totino was inducted into the Minnesota Business Hall of Fame and Frozen Food Hall of Fame and was director of Medical Wellness Technologies Inc. She appeared in an American Express advertisement shot by photographer Annie Leibowitz. Besides her two daughters, she is survived by nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

A visitor to any of these hospitals can feel a range of heart-tugging emotions sympathy, sadness, inspiration, gratefulness for the wonders wrought by technology and caring treatment. Many of the hospitals provide playrooms, customized libraries, support groups, audio-visual diversions and couches in kids' rooms so parents can stay overnight. Staff members and volunteers are trained to address children's fears. "Children's hospitals have been designed around a set of missions," said Rick Mons, director of facility contracting for Medica, the health maintenance organization. "I think they keep that mission closer to them than people dealing with adult health care. It tends to permeate the work culture. People really are zealots when it comes to children's health care." Because the four hospitals serve high-cost niches, they probably will remain separate from the big integrat-ed-service networks such as Allina and HealthPartners that are forming under health care reform. The services they provide are "too costly to duplicate" among individual hospitals, said Paul Hess, senior vice president of the Metropolitan Healthcare Council, representing 30 area hospitals and other health care organizations. Under managed care, hospitals receive incentives to reduce the number of patients they admit as well as the time they spend there. Such pres sures are increasing, Hess said, and hospitals outside the networks will feel them through contractual relationships. In addition, state limits on reimbursements to patients outside managed-care networks will pressuri hospitals and others to get costs jn line, he said. ,q For example, one reason for thl merger of Minneapolis and St. Pan) Children's is their realization that they have too many empty beds to operate efficiently, he said. The hospitals themselves estimate that the' merger will save $1 million at tlte start and $6.5 million a year by 1999. Some say the savings could be greater. Brock Nelson, chief executive of the merged Minneapolis and St. Paul Children's, said, "It would be ideal if Gillette, Shriners and Children's Hospitals could be co-located. He , predicted that could happen, perhaps : in five to 15 years. Co-location, the partial or complete ; merger of services and facilities, is not idle dreaming, Mons said, because the true specialty in most chil- i dren's hospitals is the skills of their - ' staffs, not the nature of their space. Co-location "is not a slam-dunk, onr would have happened by now," He said, but he added that it is a pracTO cal, long-range idea. Pressure for co-location could corn$, from the big managed-care systems such as Medica systems that MinrJ-j nesota is calling integrated service networks (ISNs).
