DAVID POLING, O.D. Christmas Message A Special Meaning Bv REV. DAVID POLING And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:13, 14. The Christmas message heralded so long ago in Bethlehem has a special meaning for the whole world this year. We stand at the threshold of a new political arrangement in Southeast Asia. We sense the coming cease-fire, the reduction of hostilities, the closing of open warfare. Peace is the word and with it comes hope. Our country has been so torn by war and the policies of killing that the Christmas message of peace, good will toward men has caught in our throats for nearly a decade. Christmas 1972 gathers the hopes and yearnings of millions of people, for there is no better word than peace and that is why those first heavenly messengers used it with the coming of Christ. The New Testament saw peace and its meaning in a broader understanding than the cessation of hostilities. For them it meant reconciliation between God and man, the coming of Jesus being the sign of God's love toward the whole world. Peace also contained, in biblical terms, a new relation between men. To be reconciled to God was fulfilled in your forgiveness and acceptance of your neighbor. Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the Peacemaker, serving the divine and human needs that always thrive on love and forgiveness. Christmas 1972 will test every aspect of the angel's announcement. The obvious need for peace overseas must not distract us from the same demands at home. The controversies over the Vietnam war have piled havoc and hopelessness upon thousands of domestic victims, casualties of conscience and dissent. There are three groups that need special attention, for they have carried special burdens as a result of our foreign policy. 1. The returning servicemen. Thousands upon thousands of young men have faced major disruptions in their normal life. Too many of these men have come back from overseas, cynical about society, tempted by drugs, and crushed by unemployment. They deserve and must have the high priority of government, educational, and religious groups to find their full life and their rightful place in this society. And that should be happening right now. 2. The returning civilians. Some experts claim that as many as 100,000 young men of draft age have left this country (or gone underground within the country) rather than participate in the destruction of Vietnam. Several thousand chose prison sentences instead of military service. Reconciliation must be offered here if we are serious about the word of peace at home. Amnesty can be a responsible act for a government to offer its own citizens. Many young men would accept the terms of domestic service to their country, perhaps for the same period that would have been ciaimed in military assignment. A thoughtful, concerned administration will find a solution to this heartache. 3. The dissenters. There have been men and women that took courageous stands against the war and suffered abuse and slander from may sides. Leaders like the Berrigan brothers, William Stringfellow, Bill Coffin carried the burden of protest and carried it with nerve and intelligence. The imprisonment of the Berrigans was not a bright moment in American history. The release of Father Philip Berrigan (brother Dan was released earlier this year) by the U.S. Parole Board is one of the great announcements of this Advent Season and reflects leadership of President Nixon in a most creative way. Good will may be the greatest gift of all. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

Does it seem, sometimes, as if you'll never get there? Are you on the verge of giving up? Don't! Though your objective may seem light- years beyond your reach, if it's the right thing for you, God will help if you'll let Him. The teachings of His Church will give you the patience and endurance you need to accept setbacks . . . and still keep trying. Don't try to climb to the top all by yourself. It's a lonely ascent. Let the Church help you, as it helped those who were here before you . . . and as it wil help those who come after you.
