A Welcome to Our Readers [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

A Welcome to Our Readers Even in a Church with a dramatic history, the present crisis is by all measures a Catholic moment of unusual intensity. American Catholics in particular have had to face the harm caused to the Body of Christ by actions that ranged from negligence or bad judgment to malevolence and outright betrayal. It has been painful, but it has also elicited moving signs of faith. How can, how should Catholics respond to the sexual misconduct scandal? We do not have one answer, but we do offer resources: the best analyses, reflections and commentaries on the crisis that have appeared over the last year in a wide range of publications. They are reprinted in this first issue of C2l Resources to stimulate your own search for a response. This magazine is one outcome of The Church in the 21st Century, Boston College's two-year initiative to aid the Church in recognizing, understanding and moving beyond the crisis. Inaugurated in September 2002 by University President William L...

Why? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Why? BY ANDREW GREELEY The slippery slope that descends from an excessive urge to protect one's own Hillaire Belloc, an English Catholic writer from the first half of the last century, once remarked apropos of Catholic leadership that any organization whose leadership was guilty of such knavish imbecility must have the special protection of God. As we ride the turbulent waves of the latest reprise of the sexual abuse scandal, we must wonder why. Why did some of our leaders fall victim to the current wave of knavish imbecility? Some "experts" appeal to celibate clerical culture as an explanation, with no evidence to support such an argument and no explanation why police, physicians and sometimes even academics similarly protect their own. So do many church leaders of other denominations, though not with so much dedicated imbecility. Some gay-bashers blame the church for ordaining gay men in recent years. But most of the cases that have surfaced are of men who were ordained long befor...

Catholicism and Courage [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Catholicism and Courage In interview, Weigel sees 'culture of dissent' as one cause of the crisis Zenit, an international Catholic news agency, spoke with the theologian George Weigel, a senior fellow of Washington's Ethics and Public Policy Center, at his home in Maryland. Weigel, 51, is the author, most recently, of The Courage to be Catholic: Crisis, Reform, and the Future of the Church Does it take courage to be a Catholic today? I chose the title The Courage to Be Catholic because that's the way genuine reform always works in the Church —through men and women with the conviction and the courage to be countercultural, to be genuinely, fully, joyfully Catholic. The Church has never been reformed by "Catholic Lite." Reform always means a deeper, more thorough appropriation of the truths that Christ bequeathed the Church—the truths that are its constitution, if you will. One of the things Catholics need to recover is a sense of the great adventure of orthodoxy. Christian orthodoxy ...

What Kind of Church Is This? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

What Kind of Church Is This? BY J. MICHAEL BYRON The sexual misconduct scandal highlights the Church's human and imperfect nature We have struggled this season with a number of deeply troubling issues related to the tragedies of sexual abuse of minors by priests in this country. The first wave of responses, rightly enough, has been to put a stop to systems and behavior patterns that pose immediate risks to potential victims. The next wave has devoted attention to fixing flawed structures and to matters of legal and moral justice. That so many of these initiatives have been forced upon the Catholic Church by concerned outside parties ought to be, and is, a source of significant disquiet for many of the baptized. Among the painful lessons is the profound danger that comes when one separates theology from concrete life. This danger is posed not only to right thinking but, more important, to the well-being of innocent persons. In many academic discussions it has become so commonplace to...

The Faith Will Survive [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

The Faith Will Survive BY JOAN CHITTISTER The institutional church, on the other hand, is in serious trouble: Here's why The question everywhere is the same these days: What, in the long run, will be the effect of the pedophilia scandal on the Catholic Church? Speculation ranges from predictions of total collapse to speculation about total reconfiguration. Given the long lessons of history, neither hypothesis is likely, perhaps, but we may have already been given a mirror into the future of change. Let me tell you what I've seen already. It was 1996. I was in Dublin at the time writing a book. To do concentrated work I had gone away to live alone in a small townhouse on the canal. For a while, there were no distractions at all. But then the first pedophilia scandal erupted in Ireland. I found myself as immersed in the story as the rest of the country but, as an outside observer, more concerned about the overall effects of the situation than by the cast of characters. I began to unde...

Scandal Time [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Scandal Time BY RICHARD JOHN NEUHAUS The penalty for past laxity and malfeasance is coming due The timing, it seems, could not have been worse. In last month's issue I offered my considered and heartfelt defense of Father Maciel, founder of the Legionnaires of Christ, against unfounded charges of sexual abuse. I meant and I mean every word of what I said there. Just after the issue had gone to press, however, scandals involving sexual abuse by priests in Boston exploded, creating a level of public outrage and suspicion that may be unparalleled in recent history. The climate is not conducive to calm or careful thought about priests and sexual molestation. Outrage and suspicion readily lead to excess, but, with respect to developments in Boston, it is not easy to say how much outrage and suspicion is too much. Professor Philip Jenkins of Penn State University has written extensively on sexual abuse by priests, also in these pages. He is an acute student of the ways in which the media,...

Farewell to "the Club" [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Farewell to "the Club" BY MICHAEL L. PAPESH Is the residue of a repressive clerical culture the heart of our problems? "Welcome to the club!" The bishop in a Midwestern diocese offered these words of greeting as he exchanged the sign of peace with each new priest during the ordination ceremony. The year was 1965. The story was told among a group of newly ordained priests, who struck me as both embarrassed and tickled by it. As a 14-year-old seminarian at the time, I was alerted, in the hearing, to the clerical culture. Back when seminaries and rectories were packed, the clerical culture was, for some of us, a factor in the enormous appeal of ordained ministry. It is time, I think, to bid farewell to"the club." The local rectory was the residence of the cathedral clergy. It boasted commodious living quarters, a cook and housekeeper, fine linen and silver on the dining room table (a footstool was stored underneath it for the bishop) and a consistently first-class menu. I saw French cu...

The Present Scandal: A Personal View [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

The Present Scandal: A Personal View BY ANONYMOUS "When questions were raised about the alleged incident, they were met with a constant refrain: 'We must not discuss this subject It began one Sunday in September when we noticed an unfamiliar priest celebrating Mass. The monsignor, who introduced himself as the director of priest personnel for the diocese, had bad news. A family in the parish had filed a lawsuit against our pastor, charging inappropriate behavior toward their teenage sons, and against the diocese for negligence. The monsignor hastened to note that no criminal charges were pending: "This is purely a suit about money damages." Lawyers for the diocese had concluded that the charges were utterly without foundation, he said. In the meantime, said the monsignor, our pastor had the full support of the diocese, and he would continue at his post while the legal process unfolded. He lamented the injury to a priest's good name and urged us not to allow baseless rumors to divide...

Healing Forgiveness [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Healing Forgiveness BY ANONYMOUS The Spirit still moves in our church today I am a happily married Roman Catholic woman. Attendance at Mass and time spent in meditation are my daily sustenance. I am a eucharistic minister in our parish and have been a sponsor in our adult initiation program. Our prayer group meets regularly, and I receive spiritual direction once a month. I make regular retreats and have been privileged to walk through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. I share what I have with those who have less; I give work to the immigrants, comfort the widowed, visit the lonely and counsel the addicted. I am respected by my colleagues at the well-known university where I teach. I am also a woman who as a child in the sixth grade was sexually abused by her parish priest. I share my story in the hope that my experience of healing and forgiveness may help the many people who are suffering as a consequence of sexual abuse by some members of the Catholic clergy. As a child, I ...

What We Can Do [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

What We Can Do BY REV. WILLIAM P. LEAHY, S.J The goals and purposes of Boston College's two-year effort to learn from the crisis All of us know how devastating sexual misconduct by priests and bishops has been to victims and their families, the Catholic community, and wider society. So many have been left confused and angry, feeling betrayed, and asking serious questions about the Church and their relationship with the hierarchy. In response to the scandal and to the wounds it has caused, especially in the Catholic community, I announced in mid-May that Boston College would undertake a special academic initiative during the next several years. I did so for three reasons. First, the current situation calls for healing, and healing requires not only work of the heart but also work of the mind. As a Catholic university, Boston College has a special responsibility to help the Catholic community and wider society better understand Catholic perspectives on critical societal problems, and ...

Can We Tell The Truth? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Can We Tell The Truth? BY MARGARET O'BRIEN STEINFEIS The Church faces a crisis: how it orders itself and understands its authority We have had good reason this year, which has produced the greatest crisis in the history of the U.S. Catholic Church, to remember a man who faced the clerical sexual abuse crisis over a decade ago, both institutionally in Chicago and personally in enduring a false accusation. The great lesson from Cardinal Joseph Bernardin's ordeal, in his life and in his dying, is clear: Tell the truth. As we reflect on the sexual abuse crisis, the biggest challenge we face is exactly that: telling the truth. Though it may seem that we have had all too much "truth," we do not yet have the whole truth. We must take the time to understand not only the what of sexual abuse, but also how this tragedy happened and why it happened. Only then can we move forward with integrity and with the hope of a remedy. We must pursue a form of what Vaclav Havel, now president of the Czech...

The Aftermath [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

The Aftermath BY THOMAS P. SWEETSER The people are catching on that they are the Church In the first century, Peter had a dream in Joppa, a strange dream that encouraged him to eat prohibited food that was common and unclean. This was not kosher. Then he heard a knock at the door. A group of gentiles, sent by Cornelius, asked him to come with them to Caesarea. He agreed, mystified by the invitation. When Peter got there, he was forced to admit that his vision was far too narrow. Jesus had commanded him to preach to the people, but not just to the Jewish people. Here he was, standing in the home of a gentile, probably for the first time. Acts quotes Peter as saying, "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew to associate with or visit anyone of another nation; but God has shown me that I should not call anyone common or unclean" (Acts 10:28). To his amazement, and that of the Jews who had come with him, the Holy Spirit fell on the non-Jews just as it had on them. Peter had no ...

Considerations for a Church in Crisis [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Considerations for a Church in Crisis BY JOHN R. QUINN The Church must confront deeper questions: global problems in sexuality, episcopal collegiality and "finding a new way of exercising the primacy" In terms of its harm and farreaching effects, the present crisis in the church must be compared with the Reformation and the French Revolution. It is this conviction that brings to my mind the forthright declaration of the Second Vatican Council, "Our era needs wisdom more than past ages.... The future of the world is in peril unless wiser men and women are forthcoming" ("Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the World," No. 15). Cardinal Yves Congar long ago pointed out that a major reason why well-intentioned reform movements prior to the Council of Trent failed was that they did not ask the deeper questions. They were content to try to put things back where they were. The church must address the deeper questions. A superficial response will not do. AN AMERICAN PROBLEM? According to...

The Laity and the Scandal: What Next? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

The Laity and the Scandal: What Next? BY RUSSELL SHAW A new and serious role for Catholic laity is novo the only way forward out of the crisis Writing to Archbishop (later Cardinal) James Gibbons of Baltimore in February 1882, Bishop Richard Gilmour of Cleveland made a blunt argument for holding the assembly of the American bishops that history knows as the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore. "The clergy need to be strengthened and protected against the people and the people also against the irresponsible ways of the clergy and the Bishop against both," he explained. The Third Plenary Council took place in 1884. Looking back over the years since then, a cynic might say that the clergy and the bishop had gotten pretty much what Gilmour thought they needed. As for the people, they're still waiting to see how things turn out. But now they also face a vexing quandary. As the clergy sex abuse scandal has made clear, there is a desperate need for an orderly transition to a more participat...

Tomorrow's Catholics [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2003

Tomorrow's Catholics BY CHRISTOPHER J. RUDDY Three visions of crisis and reform Toward a New Catholic Church: The Promise of Reform. By James Carroll. Mariner Books, 130 pp., $8.95 paperback. The Courage to Be Catholic: Crisis, Reform, and the Future of the Church. By George Weigel. Basic Books, 246 pp., $22.00. Why I Am a Catholic. By Garry Wills. Houghton Mifflin, 390 pp., $26.00. "The past is never dead. It's not even past." Though William Faulkner did not have the Catholic sexual-abuse crisis in mind when he wrote these words, they do throw light on the conflicting responses to the scandals of the past year. While most commentators agree that there really are two scandals —clerical sexual abuse itself and the subsequent episcopal dereliction—they differ on their diagnoses of both the causes and the appropriate remedies. Some attribute the crisis in part to a centuries-old repressive sexual ethic, while others indict the church's ambiguous and permissive moral teaching of recent ...
