Cuthbert prays for those of his former West Side parish who request special prayers and he says mass each day in the chapel upstairs at the rectory. "I say it in the morning or afternoon," he explains. "It doesn't really matter. Just the Lord and myself are there." While many older Catholics have expected Fr. Cuthbert to speak out against the changes in the church, he has, instead, endorsed the new thinking. He enjoys the folk mass and the young people who participate. Last year the members of the folk mass group played for him on his birthday and brought their lunches to celebrate with him. The young people frequently bring him buttons for his collection. · They have such messages as "Bald is Beautiful." Fr. Cuthbert enjoys travel when he's feeling up to it, but for pure relaxation, he watches television. "I like to watch the soap operas," he confides/His favorite? "The Guilding Light," of course. In his lifetime, Fr. Cuthbert has seen the invention of cars and planes, the luxury of running water in the house, the mystery of men walking on the moon. ("My very first train ride was when I went to seminary.") He has seen priests leave the order to marry -- an action he cannot accept. And he has seen changes he likes. He says: "As long as the church teaches it, I'm right with it. But some ideas are ideas of individuals and not of the church." Most of all, Fr. Cuthbert Anthony Schoeppner believes in work and prayer. His f a v o r i t e saying is: "When does a priest quit working? Ten minutes after he's dead." Indeed, thou art a priest forever. * * * l l t \ 1:.V--igsa I.?«*MXM « frXlxikkt .«·?«***» 1 1**«**X ; ( JS«X»«»X»-«**JXHCCKC «#*«"W5?£«HIM jW.*x*ii«******J *Xm*imiB****xrS5; tilt ,, 8troller SUMMER'S BREEZY LITTLE EXPRESS DRESS IN JERSEY OF ARNEL® 22.00 Step in, close the zip front and stroll ... coming or going, you'll like it's fresh crisp looks. . . it's soft touch ... the way it moves with a fluid motion and never shows a trace of a wrinkle.
