"Please children and young adults don't use Drug & Alcohol and pray everyday for our youngsters." Owner: John Hiser Quarry Rd. Village (behind Dr. Dough Pizza) Fairlea, WV By Mark Flynn Readers of this newspaper are probably aware of the recycling cen- ter in Fairlea, and of the need for wider support of its program. Things which could be put to good use are instead being thrown away, and are filling up our landfill. Recycling is a good idea. Items which we can no longer use anyway can help to save trees, reduce air pollution, reduce dependence on foreign oil, and provide jobs in our community. Christians, and all citi- zens, have reason to use for good the sorts of things that would other- wise be thrown away. In the twenty-sixth chapter of Deuteronomy, however, the people of God are told that God is con- cerned not just with what they have left over, but with the first and the best of what they have. In Deuteronomy, the people of God are instructed to dedicate to God each year a portion of the 'lirst fruits"-- the first harvest of the sea- son. The people were told what to say when they brought this offering to God. They were told to say, '1 now acknowledge to the Lord my God that 1 have entered the land that he promised our ancestors to give us." Then, when the priest had placed the offering on the altar, the people were to recite their history, remind- ing themselves that their ancestors had no home,': and that they had been slaves in Egypt, but that God had rescued them from slavery, and had given them a home, and free- dom, and bountiful crops. So, it was out of gratitude for what God had done for them that the people of God were to give a portion of the first fruits back to Him. We Americans in the last decade of the Twentieth Century, are, for the most part, descendants of Euro- peans or Asians who came to this great land because of the lack of opportunity in their homelands, or descendants of Africans who were made victims of the same cruel and unjust system which the Israelites endured in Egypt. Most of us are the descendants of people who were poor and homeless, or even slaves. Most of us have fared well with the home and freedom which we now have. Most of us have enjoyed bounty which the people of God in Old Testament times would never have thought possible. Today's Americans have more reason than any other people who have ever lived to praise and honor God by the way in which they use their possessions -- both their "first fruits" and their trash, and every- thing in between.

An announcement as to time donated an oil painting as the major and place will be made in this news- paper. By Helen W. Searle De Boilet was a carpenter at Cor- bie Abbey in the northwest province of Picardy, France. On January 13, 1381 his daughter Nicolette was born. Colette's parents were already quite elderly and before she was twenty-two they both died. After distributing her inheritance to the poor, Colette entered the Be- guinage Monastery at Amiens. Not finding it strict enough to suit her ideals, she returned to Corbie and became a member of the Benedic- tine Hospital Sisters. Again she was not satisfied. This time she moved to Mon:el and joined the Poor Clares. Discovering they were not practicing the strict observances established by Saint Clare, but the modified rules set forth by Pope Urban IV, she decided to become a Francis- can tertiary. (The Sisters of Saint Clare or "Poor Clares" are the Sec- ond Order of Saint Francis for con- templative and monastic nuns. A tertiary is the Third Order of Saint Francis for religious brothers and sisters. All adhere to the rules of the First Order of Saint Francis [OFM, Order of Friars Minor] which are poverty, chastity and obedience.) Colette took a vow of seclusion, re- turned to Corbie and, for three years, lived in a small cell next to the Church of N6tre Dame As Colette grew in holiness and spiritual wisdom she became in- spired to restore the Poor Clares to the original intent of the founder. In 1406, after receiving her habit from Peter de Luna, who the French rec- ognized as Pope Benedict XlII, she began her work as general superior of all convents of the order. The Colettine Reforms spread through France, Flanders, Savoy and Spain and even had a positive effect on the Friars Minor communi- ties. During the forty years of her work she founded fifteen communi- ties, one branch of which is called the Colettines. Saint Colette died at her commu- nity in Ghent March 6, 1447. Her rel- ics are enshrined in a golden reli- quary made in the form of a small church at the Monastery of Saint Clare in Poligny, France, along with some other small personal posses- sions like a wooden bowl, an auto- graphed letter, her seal and a wax tablet book with a cover scene de- picting the adoration of the Maji carved from ivory. "The Cross of Heaven," a very small jeweled cross Saint Colette received in a vision from Our Savior, is kept -- along with a crucifix presented to her by Saint Vincent Ferrer --- in the mon- astery of Saint Clair in Besan:on, France. Saint Colette is remembered on her feast day, March 6.
