Spiritual But Not Religious? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Spiritual But Not Religious? BY REID LOCKLIN The Professor: As a college sophomore in East Tennessee, I certainly would not have called myself a Christian. Yet it was at this very time in my life that I wrestled seriously with faith in a God who had assumed human flesh for our salvation. The reason was simple enough: I had enrolled in a course on Indian culture and religion. The course texts were the twin Hindu epics, Ramayana and BhagavadGita. In the figure of Rama —hero of the Ramayana—l encountered humanity writ large, a dramatic hero journeying, fighting demons, and crossing a great ocean to recover his beloved wife in relentless accord with holy duty, or dharma. In the Gita, on the other hand, I met the revealer of dharma itself, divinity writ small, the charioteer Krishna. These were the images of an incarnate God with which members of my class were beginning to grapple. Gathered in a circle around the Professor, whose expertise ex-tended from Indian religions through William ...

A Catholic Presence [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

A Catholic Presence BY STEPHEN MARTIN Duke's Wallace Fowlie For Catholics of any generation, the question of how to remain loyal to the age-old traditions of our faith while also engaging new ideas poses plenty of challenges. For college students squeezed between modernity and Catholicism, the struggle for answers is particularly intense and given to extremes. Some students choose to remain loyal to their faith and shelter themselves from campus activities that threaten their beliefs. Many others can hardly wait to toss their religious upbringing aside entirely—and if that's what you wanted, Duke University was a thrilling destination in the early 19905. Being and English major in the department ruled by controversial literary critic Stanley Fish was even better. Longstanding assumptions about the meaning of literature, even about The act of reading itself, were under assault, gaining Duke national notoriety. For many of Fish's faculty colleagues, truth in literature and the larger ...

Stairways to Heaven [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Stairways to Heaven BY LAWRENCE CUNNINGHAM Some cautionary thoughts for those who are spiritual but not religious Editors' note: The next two articles, by Lawrence Cunningham and Robert P. Moloney, are exhortations by older Catholics to younger Catholics. Cunningham's piece seeks to persuade those who describe themselves as spiritual, but not religious" that religion is a community's way of "remembering God." As soon as the dust settled at ground zero in New York City and the scope of the 9-11 tragedy became apparent to all, makeshift shrines began to spring up near the site and at adjacent firehouses. Pictures of those lost in the tragedy were pinned on walls, and at the foot of those same walls people left flowers, candles, mementos (teddy bears were a favorite), and scrawled messages—notes of loss or grief, passages from the Bible, or prayers. The candles often had religious decals of Our Lady of Guadalupe or Saint Anthony or Christ with a crown of thorns; other candles were thos...

A Letter to Young American Catholics [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

A Letter to Young American Catholics BY ROBERT P. MALONEY My dear younger brothers and sisters: I write, as an older brother, to encourage you. In August 2005, more than a million young Catholics gathered with Pope Benedict XVI in Cologne for World Youth Day. Twenty-five thousand of them were from the United States. The Lord entrusts the future of the Church to young people like them and you. Our countryman Walt Whitman once wrote: Youth, large, lusty, loving, youth, full of grace, force fascination.... Day full-blown and splendid day of the immense sun, action, ambition, laughter.... In that spirit, I urge you to use the gifts of youth to be fully alive, actively responsible members of the Church and alert citizens of the world community. Many factors beyond your control will shape the future, but your response is crucial to the vitality of the Church and its role in the world. Sixty-four percent of the world's population is under the age of 25. In some places, particularly in the ...

How God Invites Us to Grow [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

How God Invites Us to Grow BY REV. RICHARD J. SWEENEY Six Stages of Faith Development Editors' note: The following article describes one influential model for understanding the process of growth in faith. This question about faith development has been important as parents, grandparents, and religious educators consider how to hand on the faith to young people today. Researchers guided by the important work of Professor James Fowler of Emory University have been conducting interviews on the faith-lives of men and women for nearly 20 years. Currently, they have identified as many as six different stages of faith people seem to exhibit. In each case, the movement to the next stage occurs when some life experience invites a person to a new understanding of God. The new stage of faith imparts a fuller, more adequate insight into life and makes possible more responsible and more truly loving decisions. 1. Imaginative Faith Until around age seven, a child's faith can be expected to be high...

Both Gen-Y and Catholic [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Both Gen-Y and Catholic BY MARK MOSSA They are their own breed, modern and unapologetically Catholic u ■ sn't he so cute!" coos Amy. She I is not talking about some fra_M_ternity boy she's in love with. She's melting over John Paul II chanting a Latin hymn on a CD she has brought with her on retreat. Only the pope is that kind of cute. Even after 15 years of working with young people, such moments still strike me as odd. Yet, odd as it may seem, I hesitate to label Amy a freak or even a conservative (though she might be happy to describe herself as such). I know Amy, and coming from her this is not odd. She's one of the many college students I meet from day today, each searching for God in his or her own way. When it comes to things Catholic, she may be extreme and at times even close-minded, but not more than many other students at a Catholic college or university. The difference is that other students are extreme about things like alcohol, sex, their studies (sometimes), and maybe...

What Catholics Under 30 Are Doing Right [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

What Catholics Under 30 Are Doing Right BY CLAIRE NOONAN In Catholic circles, there's one group that is much maligned and little appreciated. But it's a group that I have been blessed to work and pray with for many years. They are some of God's most inspiring friends, who get from our church neither a lifetime of employment security nor the status of ordination, but who don't do this work for money or power anyway. They do it for love. They are Catholics under 30. Here are some of the things they are doing right. Service 101 Despite the demands of increasing tuitions, rising debt burdens, and heavy class loads, countless university students are still giving incredible service to the Church and the world. I work as a university minister at Loyola University Chicago, where we are graced with a vibrant liturgical life and transformative social justice programs. Imagine 600 students in a standing-room-only chapel for Sunday Eucharist, beginning student-style at 10 p.m. After Communion, ...

Look What's Brewing at Theology-on-Tap [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Look What's Brewing at Theology-on-Tap BY JEREMY LANGFORD In Chicago, summers and theology go together like a ball and glove, parks and picnics, fireworks and the lakeshore. Thousands of young adults include attending one or more sessions of the annual Theology-on-Tap speaker-and-discussion series in their summer plans. "Come Again?" you say. "What on tap?" Sponsored by the Young Adult Ministry Office of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Theology-on-Tap is a fourweek summer program exclusively for young adults in their twenties and thirties, married and single. An ideal way for parishes to focus some time, attention, and resources on one of the most underrepresented groups in the Church, Theology-on-Tap provides a weekly opportunity for parish communities to work together regionally to gather young adults for conversation, food, drink, and good theology. The grand finale of the program is an archdiocese-wide Mass, celebrated in Chicago's Holy Name Cathedral by the cardinal-archbishop, fol...

Reaching an Invisible Generation [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Reaching an Invisible Generation BY ROLAND MARTINSON Editors' note: Roland Martinson is the Carrie Olson Baalson Professor of Children, Youth and Family Ministry at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2001, Dr. Martinson gave the HeinFry Lecture at the Seminary on the subject of ministry to young adults. The following text excerpts much of that lecture's themes. As a Lutheran, Martinson has witnessed many of the same phenomena that apply to the challenges facing Catholics in handing on the Faith to young adults. What does post-modernity mean for how Christians go about living the Faith today or discerning the presence of God in the face of a new generation? Or, put more directly, How have we, the latest generation of the Fhurch's leadership, been doing theologically and strategically in participating with God in passing on faith to this next generation? The group of young people aged 18 to 30 is an invisible generation. At the height of the baby boomer generation (born 1943-1...

Why Young Adults Need Ignatian Spirituality [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2006

Why Young Adults Need Ignatian Spirituality BY TIMOTHY P. MULDOON A number of articles and books over the last few years have asked: What will the Church look like in 20 years? Underlying this basic concern is an awareness that today's young Catholic adults have not, it seems, employed the models of earlier generations to appropriate the Faith and lack the commitment to that faith that would seem necessary for the future well-being of the Church. What I offer here is a reflection on how Ignatian spirituality in particular can speak to young people and help us develop a vocabulary of faith. Why Ignatian spirituality? There are two major reasons; the first is practical, the second theological. The practical reason is that this spirituality is available. There are many Jesuit high schools and colleges in the United States, and they have a long history of ministering to the spiritual and intellectual growth of young people. Ignatian spirituality works because we have learned how to enco...

A "catholic" Intellectual Tradition [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2007

A "catholic" Intellectual Tradition TIMOTHY P. MULDOON The desire which motivated medieval religious communities to found the first universities was rooted in a basic confidence about the knowableness of reality, a trust that all things to be known found a unifying principle in the belief that God created them. Some—Thomas Aquinas most notably—carried this confidence enough to engage even the intellectual work of Jewish and Muslim thinkers. It is this sense of confidence about reality that has animated Catholic intellectual life at its best. Today, however, some question the possibility and relevance of an intellectual tradition that calls itself Catholic. It was during the modern period that the Middle Ages were called "Dark," precisely because moderns judged religious belief to be unscientific and therefore inconsistent with the methods of rational inquiry. If one cannot prove God or any of the doctrines about God, how could a Catholic intellectual tradition be anything more than ...

The Catholic Intellectual Tradition [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2007

The Catholic Intellectual Tradition BY MARGARET STEINFELS Catholic intellectual life is central to Catholic identity. It is fundamental to the life of the church, big C and little c, cathedral and congregation —to its continued vitality and to the Church's missions in this culture. This is not a narrow ecclesiastical tradition, but a broad and infinitely useful one. Commonweal has fostered and questioned that tradition. Our writers and readers reflect that affection and that criticism. They are university people and journalists, book editors, lawyers, physicians, scientists, politicians; they are bishops, clergy, and ordinary Catholics, who in their daily lives practice and depend upon the kind of thinking, reasoning, reflection that make up the Catholic intellectual tradition. Furthermore, this tradition is also explored and appreciated by writers and readers who are Methodists, Episcopalians, Orthodox as well as Catholics, and not only Christians—-Jews, secular humanists, those la...
