Saturday, Aug. 14 Pon er T ese Tfiin s in 3/aur J [eart :By Oennis Justison saw a loose pearl in the crevice of a rock on the bottom of the ocean. With great effort, she managed to retrieve the pearl and place it beside her on a.leaf. She knew humans liked pearls. She thought, "They will see this pearl and leave me alone!" Soon, a pearl diver showed up. However, his eyes were conditioned to look for oysters and not pearls resting on leaves. She grabbed the oys- ter, which did not havea pearl inside. His motion caused the real pearl to roll back into the crevice in the rock at the bottom of the ocean. Our religion and our egos have taught us exactly where to look for God. This is why many of us fail to see God at all. We are a fish swim- ming in the ocean searching for the ocean. We are the pearl diver in search of the pearl, but leaving our treasure at the bottom of the sea. St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City is a popular place for peo- ple of all faiths and religions to come and pray, light a candle, maybe even attend Mass. There is a gift shop inside that one may purchase a small memento of their visit. It is a beautiful place to worship the Lord. On the steps outside the church, homeless people and beggars gather hoping to receive something from the worshippers and tourists who come for a glimpse of Christ. It reminds me of the scene at the Temple in Jerusalem when the lame man begged alms fronl Sts. Peter and John (Acts 3:1-10). On the day that I visited, I observed the people and their interaction with the beggars. Their expressions spanned all human emotion from sympathy to disgust. A few opened up their wallets and gave someone a dollar. There was little eye contact. Most people looked away, ignoring the pleas of the poor beggars. One man in a wheel chair, like most of his fellow beggars, didn't re- ceive any money. He was very dirty and old. His clothes were tattered and he smelled. As he made his way across the street towards the park, I tapped him on the shoulder. The look on his face was surprise, shock, almost horror. I reached out my hand. His look melted into warmth and he held his out too. "May the Lord bless you my friend," I said. He didn't let go of my hand, but kept shaking mine vigorously. His grin reached to his two ears revealing about the same number of teeth. He didn't quit smiling. I won- dered how long it had been since someone looked him in the eye or touched him. We spoke for a few minutes. I bought him lunch at a kiosk on the sidewalk. He thanked me, we hugged, and went our way. His smell was on my shirt. My first thought was, "I stink." No! I stopped myself. "This is the scent of God." I recalled the story from the Gospel of Matthew, "In so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." My experience on the sidewalk was different than in the Church. The priest, as we Catholics believe; put Christ in my hand. On the street, as we also believe, Was an opportunity to shake hands with Christ. Both moments were blessed. Both were holy. Both are evidence that the In- carnation isn't something that happened, but IS happening, every day, everywhere. Loving God and loving neighbor are really one. They go together. What is done inside the church must be done outside, or it is ren- dered meaningless and powerless. We all desire God and the God experience. Church offers the oyster. Do we see the pearl or do we leave only with a meaningless memento from the gift shop? The law of love teaches us to see the pearl, Christ in bur midst. You can only see the pearl with the eye of your heart.

Help Cloan Up Big Stone, Lake II DEPENDENT Librarian's Corner By Vicki Grimli The Ortonville Public Library is open Monday-Thursday 12-8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10-3 p.m. We have gotten in a lot of new audio books both for adults and for children. Check out the selection. I am sure we have something you would enjoy lis- tening to. Great for those driving va- cation trips. What better way to go than to "read" a book along the way. New in True Crime is Pam Phree and Mike "Darkside" Beakley's "Be- trayal, Murder and Greed: The True Story of a Bounty Hunter and a Bail Bond Agent". Bail bond agent Pam Phree and bounty hunter Mike Beakley have waged a war on crime. A modem Wotday action movie brought to life, these avengers of justice have success- fully worked,together to take down some of the nation's most dangerous fugitives on the lam while, at the same time, fighting the corruption in their own business. New in Health and Beauty is Babe HOpe's "Pretty Plus: How to Look Sexy, Sensational and Successful No Matter What You Weigh". The book reveals the secrets to looking great while carrying 20, 50 or even 100 extra pounds. A good source for making wise choices in all aspects of upgrad- ing your fashion look, from shopping and accessorizing, makeup, casual, ca- reer, formal and intimate dressing, to successfully building a pretty plus style wardrobe that will ~mprove one's self- image immediately and cost-effec- tively. New in Family and Parenting is James P. Krehbiel's "Troubled Child- hood, Triumphant Life". While many people enjoyed a happy, robust child- hood filled with love and support, oth- ers were riddled with painful recollections of hurt, neglect and shame. Repressed feelings centering around a traumatic upbringing are veiled beneath a cloak of "magical il- lusions" that children cling to as they grow up and still seek to gain the ap- proval and validation of their absent and/or abusive parents. iMusings from the Museum By Norm Shelsta On this date in the State of Min- nesota History Files followed by an event from the Big Stone County His- tory Files: Aug. 11, 1900-All 13 of the cars in Minneapolis race from the Hennepin County Cohrthouse to Wayzata to demonstrate to the county commis- sioners the need for better roads.
