A Dance of Sex and Spirit [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

A Dance of Sex and Spirit BY THOMAS C. FOX Our sexuality is at the core of our humanity 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 before the allege...

A Catholic Sense of Sexuality [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

A Catholic Sense of Sexuality Catholics, as a group, have not always rested easily with the issue of sexuality. The gap between Church teaching and Catholic practice has seldom seemed so wide. And given popular culture's excessive focus on sex and the permissiveness it promotes, Catholics may well feel that the best thing to do is simply to leave the topic alone. But avoidance has consequences. It estranges individuals from their God-given bodies. In its most malignant forms, it has also contributed to the sexual abuse scandal that has shaken the Church. In this, our second issue, C2l Resources brings together a number of articles that address the role that sexuality has played in the crisis, and, more generally, in marriage, homosexuality, the formation of priestly celibacy, and the issue of how to recover the positive aspects of Catholic tradition on sexuality. Included are two Church documents. Many of these articles reflect on a basic premise of Catholic theology that has someti...

The Fog of Scandal [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

The Fog of Scandal BY JOHN T. MCGREEVY The sexual-abuse crisis in historical perspective It is now almost a cliche to say that the sexual-abuse scandal of the last year is the worst crisis in the history of the American church. The sustained media coverage, subsequent disillusionment, and passion aroused by the scandal have no parallel. Certainly the crisis and its ripple effects have become the single most important event in U.S. Catholicism since the Second Vatican Council. For Catholics under the age of forty-five, it may be defining: the public event that shapes their adult relationship with Catholicism more than any other. How did the crisis become so severe? Much of the reaction is the result of the sheer horror of what has been revealed: horror at priests acting as sexual predators toward young people; horror at bishops willing to protect those priests. Still, this is not the whole story. If sexual abuse alone were at issue, the shock of this episode might be receding. After ...

Stunted Catechesis [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Stunted Catechesis BY SIDNEY CALLAHAN The Church's teaching on sexuality has a role in its current crisis The effects of the sex abuse crisis in the American church aren't going away. A host of issues concerning church government and accountability continues to surface. Everyone from the bishops on down may agree that change is needed, but when it comes to specifying reforms, disagreements bubble up Deep and fundamental differences, for instance, emerge when it comes to the future role of the official teachings of Roman authorities on matters of sex and gender. Two opposing agendas for the church directly conflict. One traditional group sees our current sex abuse troubles as stemming from past and present infidelities of priest perpetrators to Pope John Paul IPs articulation of sexual teaching. In this view, sin and evil are recognized as always present, but abusing priests have been led to violate their vows of chastity and celibacy because of the debilitating permissiveness toward...

Let's Talk About Sex [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Let's Talk About Sex In an interview, psychologist Fran Ferder, a Franciscan nun, talks about the dangers of body dualism Fran Ferder, a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration, is the author of Tender Fires: The Spiritual Promise of Sexuality (Crossroad, 2002). In an interview with U.S. Catholic magazine, she says believes that many Catholics have felt shame about their bodies because there are too many "forbidden topics." A doctor of clinical psychology and ministry, she draws on the "best side" of Catholic tradition concerning sexuality, which sees it as embodied. Ferder is on the faculty of Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry, where she team-teaches with Father John Heagle. U.S. Catholic magazine conducted this interview. Why have you and John Heagle, two celibate people, chosen to work in the area of sexuality? Neither one of us, when we were 10 or 12 years old, said, "When I grow up, I want to write about sex." But as a clinical psychologist, I experienced ve...

The Capacity for Love and Communion [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

The Capacity for Love and Communion An excerpt from the Catechism of the Catholic Church From Article 6 ("The Sixth Commandment") of Chapter 2, " You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself,"from Section 11, dealing with the Ten Commandments, found under Part 111 of the whole catechism.

The Embodied Self [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

The Embodied Self BY MICHAEL NOVAK The distinctness of our being male and female, the author argues, is revelatory of God's own being and inner life In the very first year of his papacy, Pope John Paul II planted a time bomb in the Church that is not likely togo off until about twenty years from now. Beginning in September 1979, he devoted fifteen minutes of each weekly general audience over a five-year period to sustained, dense, and rigorous meditations on human sexuality. Reflecting on key biblical passages, the Pope began by wondering what it meant to Adam, walking in the gar- den, to discover that he was alone as an embodied self. He also asked what it means to Karol Wojtyla, and the rest of us, to be embodied selves. Even during the papal conclave that elected him, Cardinal Wojtyla had been working on these lectures, intending to use them in his teaching in Krakow. He was unsatisfied with the reception to Paul Vl's Humanae Vitae of 1968, and unsatisfied, too, with the state of...

Marriage as 'A Daring Promise' [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Marriage as 'A Daring Promise' BY RACHEL WIMBERLY In an interview; theologian Richard Gaillardetz sees marriage as a radical and evangelical act Richard Gaillardetz says he did not write the book, A Daring Promise: A Spirituality of Christian Marriage, on how to make a marriage easy, but instead on why a faithful Christian marriage is hard. "I am convinced that living out a committed Christian marriage today is one of the most radical and evangelical things a Christian can do in our culture," says Gaillardetz, who holds the Thomas and Margaret Murray and James J. Bacik Chair of Catholic Studies at the University of Toledo. One only has to look at the alarming divorce statistics to agree that the author does indeed have a point. Gaillardetz says when most single adults are asked whether or not they want to get married the majority of them answer positively. While he does not believe the difficulty lies in the institution of marriage having a bad name, Gaillardetz says there are "prof...

An Act of Companionship [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

An Act of Companionship An essay drawn from Gaillardetz's book, A Daring Promise: A Spirituality of Christian Marriage To marry another is not just to acquire a sexual partner or a lover, it is to discover a "companion." The word derives from the Latin prefix comor "with" and panis or "bread." A companion is one with whom a person shares bread. Bread is an ancient symbol suggesting both the product of human labor and the stuff of human nourishment. A powerful biblical image, God offers the biblical bread, manna, to feed Moses and the Israelites wandering in the desert. Yet the gift of manna required the Israelites to rise each morning to gather the manna. When they tried to store the manna so as to avoid the daily chore of rising and gathering the bread, the manna rotted. God's provision had to be patiently received daily as gift, not hoarded and controlled. And of course, at the last supper, Jesus identifies himself with bread, becoming food for the world. To see my spouse as a com...

Changing Catholic Models of Marriage [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Changing Catholic Models of Marriage BY MICHAEL G. LAWLER The legal term 'contract' has given way to the biblical word 'covenant' Marriage is in the news these days, but for mostly negative reasons. The first type of union for the majority of couples is now not marriage but cohabitation; young people are delaying both marriage and, when married, parenthood; the divorce rate hovers around its all-time high; and the birth of children to unmarried parents has skyrocketed. Some college textbooks describe marriage as a trap, especially for women. It puts women at risk for violence, they say, and it is bad for their mental health. One could be forgiven for concluding that marriage is going out of style and is being replaced by more attractive alternatives, but that would be a serious mistake. Every study of young Americans demonstrates that they are still the marrying kind and still have high hopes for a happy marriage. Unfortunately, given all they see around them, they also have a debil...

The Clergy's Buried Truths [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

The Clergy's Buried Truths BY DONALD COZZENS Prevalence of male teenage victims in scandal points to issue of homosexuality As a result of the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church, priests, whether heterosexual or gay, must cope with skyrocketing stress and plummeting prestige. Owing to the details of the revelations, gay priests are in the public eye as never before, many of them no doubt bracing for an antigay backlash. At the same time, lay Catholics are discussing the role homosexuality plays in the abuse of teenage boys and wondering how the current turmoil will affect the priesthood and the church itself. But there is one essential element of the scandal that has not gotten the attention it deserves: Most priest abusers are not pedophiles—adults whose sexual drives are almost exclusively directed toward pre-pubescent boys and girls. Rather, they fall into the category of ephebophiles (from ephebeus, one of the Greek nouns for a post-pubescent youth). Both pedophilia and ephebo...

Made In God's Image [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Made In God's Image BY ANONYMOUS A homosexual priest speaks out about his sexuality I knew that I was called to priesthood before I knew that I was gay. The lure of sacramental mystery that resonated with my young soul, the ready acceptance I found in my home parish community, and the care and attention shown me by priests of all ages and temperaments convinced me at an early age that my life would be spent in service as a priest. The excitement, complexity, and beauty of my sexuality were a later discovery, coming at a time when body, mind, and soul were ready to explore and understand one of God's most profound gifts. Yes, I knew that I was called to priesthood before I knew that I was gay. That is why the pronouncements from Rome and elsewhere that homosexuals are not fit for priesthood give me pause and cause me to wonder, "How could that be?" Though disheartened and angered by the growing number of voices judging me unfit, I am not surprised. It has been my experience that even...

On 'Straightening Out' Catholic Seminaries [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

On 'Straightening Out' Catholic Seminaries BY JON FULLER Banning gays could foster a return to secrecy, duplicity and repression in seminaries One of the deeply troubling outcomes of the Catholic Church's recent scandals involving sexual abuse and the abuse of administrative power is the call from many quarters to exclude from seminaries men who are gay. This is troubling, because it flies in the face of simple logic. Experts have repeatedly pointed out that the sexual abuse in question —pedophilia and ephebophilia—are functions of arrested sexual development, not of a particular sexual orientation. It is also troubling because it is misleading and diverts attention from the real causes of the problem. Voices asserting that individuals with a homosexual orientation must | be excluded from seminaries and from being ordained have come from many quarters. Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone, secretary of the Vatican's doctrinal congregation, said that "persons with a homosexual inclination sho...
