East Timor     CHURCH OFFICIAL STRESSES RECONCILIATION
Reconciliation and the return of East Timorese refugees from Indonesia are needed for an independent East Timor, said a church official visiting the US.
   ``Probably the most important thing we're working on is to unite the East Timorese people,'' said Ilidio Gusmao, coordinator of the Justice and Peace Commission of the Diocese of Baukau, during a visit last week to the U.S. Catholic Conference in Washington.
   The ``church is working to really educate the people, particularly the Catholic people, about the role they can play in the reconstruction of our land which was destroyed,'' he said.
