The Ottawa Citizen Fags 17 Saturday, November 11, 1361 BISHOP SHEEN WRITES LINES ON LIFE Man Tries To Avoid Self-Knowledge Young People Misjudged dicate that many teen-agers who B.v Dr. Stuart E. demand more liberties are, in fact, frightened by the very pros pects of freedom. They are not edge, is exaggerated self-disgust. The victim thus affirms hopelessness, and avoids the necessity of change.

He says: "I am rotten" just like he might say, "I am too fat." Then he freely reaches for another chocolate. Sometimes one hears it said: "I am at the first of the month they are afraid to open them because they are bearers of bad news. Many a modern conscience is like a woman before her mirror. Just as soon as she sees herself, she puts on her makeup. The mask is made for others; the seeming self shows itseif, while IF WE WERE honest v.i!h ourselves, we would have to admit that each of us has more trouble with himself than with any other person in the world.

We know other people better than we do ourselves. Someone once asked Socrates why he was such an unhappy man despite the fact that he travelled over the world. Soc VOl'NG PEOPLE are misjudged by most adults. Grownups expect them to be different from them in at least two ways in which they cannot be different. Tne popular postulate assumes that "young people, today are not what they used to it also suggests that "youth is a time of rebellion." The truth, however, is in an old sinner." (They are always i the real self is hidden.

quite sure how to handle it. Thus, parents falsely assume that they are being most understanding when they exercise the least amount of control; then, they must imagine, there will be less to rebel against. But young people do want, need and respect authority. For themselves, they will seek to gain certain specific free areas of activity. But, as rates said: the opposite direction.

Today, as always before, young people are miniature adults they snak nn all of "Because wherever you go, you take yourself with The ancient Greek i I sopher Thales said that for man to know him-s 1 is the hardest thing in the world. v1 Bishop Sheen In such a false judgment, one combines an affirmation of how sensitive is his conscience, with the opposite affirmation that nothing can be done for his betterment. rpHE AVERAGE person is very much like an onion; he is made up of many coats or disguises. Since tearing them off brings tears, he avoids stripping down to his real self. Many, too, are like icebergs one-fifth of their character is above water, four-fifths is hidden and unexplored.

Others are like department stores in which the wrong price tags have been placed on many things: hairpins sell for diamonds for a dime. Conscience they regard like bills i the peeves and if it If prejudices, re- fleet most of attitudes Dr. Rosenberg of their elders. Far from be The modern mind is completely surrounded by mechanisms for self-deception and for avoiding all knowledge of self. A mood As Browning put it: "God be thanked, the meanest of his creatures Boasts two soul-sides, one to face the world with.

One to show a woman when he loves her." Despite all these escapes, the real enemy is within. Man cannot love himself as he really is when he does wrong, so he blinds himself and tries to love the self that he thinks he is. The more proud a man is, because he knows little about himself, the more sensitive he becomes to the insults of others. But the man who knows himself, that is, not as he is before his own standards, nor as he is before his neighbor, but as he is before his God, that man is never much troubled about the attacks of others. His principal worry is himself, how he can become not just a man, but even a child of God.

A person will learn more about himself on his knees for five minutes than he will learn on a couch in five years and it is much cheaper. Michael-angelo had the right idea when he said: "T-ord, take me away from myself to make me pleasing to Thee." is constantly being created that an attitude toward hfe in general, they feel much more comfortable in a world where there is obedience and respect for authority. Not unlike their elders, by the way. 'HEN MEN GROW grey, they romanticise the "good old days." Part of that nostalgia is due to the physical frustrations of age when "the grinders cease because they are few" which they contrast with the power and vitality of more youthful days. Weaker, older men were once more physically sound, and they like to believe that they were once more spiritually vigorous, as well.

Youth has thus become the ideal age and we have imagined that it is also the age of idealism. But with notably few exceptions, youth can grow no wings in an earth-bound society. As in all other things, they do not live like Robinson Cru-soes; they are very much part of the world they populate. Where men become islands unto themselves, and the drive for security the chief consciously-desired EASTERN RITE CHURCH we are not personally responsible for the evil that we do. (It should be stated that though many claim they are determined to be evil, nevertheless they insist that they should be praised for the good they freely do.) Another trick to avoid self-knowl- have been attending divine services in the Murray Street chapel.

Due to several repairs to their new St. Peter and Paul Church, the inaugural service will be held late this month. The church is on Riverside Drive, in ing rowdy rebels, they are notorious conformists and imitators; if this were not so, there would be no Pied Pipers, no rock-and-roll Kings, and precious few disc-jockeys. The attitudes of young people toward the social, economic, political and religious questions of our times are the same attitudes of most people young and old. The prevailing winds blow; they touch us all alike, showing careless disregard for the number of hairs on our heads, or the years we have lived.

Somehow we like to deceive ourselves into the belief that "we were different in our day," from the young people these days. This is just not Roman Catholics from the Middle East living in Ottawa and area will now worship in their own church. The former Our Lady of Presentation Church, shown here, will now be utilized by Lebanese and other Eastern rite Catholics. The new parish priest is Rev. Theophile Atalla.

Smith The future in this world will belong to that nation, and those people, who are best disciplined. This means that they will be disciplined by their government, has yet demanded.

It is a fact, of course, that automation will throw thousands out of work, but at the same time it will open the door of opportunity to those workers who are willing to make the effort to achieve training. It is not a question of politics, or of union organization. It is one of the inescapable facts of life. Skill And Discipline The achievement of skill begins with the willingness to subject one's self to the rigors of discipline. Just as discipline represents the rock base of efficiency in so! We were different, yes: but only because our parents were different, too only because we reflected, as all young people must reflect, the dominant value, judgments of our own era.

JTVERYONE, except those who work intimately with young people, seems shocked to discover that youngsters are not automatically rebellious, just because they are young. Far from it. By their nature, they may seek to obtain more privileges and freedom, for themselves. But there is abundant evidence to in Missionaries from Thailand, Viet Nam, and Israel, will be among featured speakers at the 59th annual missionary convention of the Christian and Missionary Alliance which opens Sunday in the Gospel Tabernacle at 600 Bank Ottawa.
