Always Our Children [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Always Our Children From Always Our Children, a 1997 pastoral message by the U.S. Catholic bishops The purpose of this message is to reach out to parents coping with the discovery of homosexuality in their adolescent or adult child. It urges families to draw upon faith, hope, and love as they face uncharted futures. It asks them to recognize that the Church offers spiritual resources to strengthen and support them at this moment and in the days to come. This message draws upon the teachings of the Church, of Pope John Paul II and of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It is not a systematic presentation of the Church's moral teaching, nor does it break new ground theologically. Rather we intend to speak words of faith, hope, and love to parents who need the Church's loving presence at a time that may be one of the most challenging in their lives. We hope this message will be helpful to priests and pastoral ministers to whom parents may turn to face their anxieties. Accep...

An Ethic for Same-Sex Relations [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

An Ethic for Same-Sex Relations BY MARGARET A. FARLEY Seeing no ground for an absolute prohibition, a Catholic ethicist argues that homosexual couples deserve the duties, rights and relational joys of all couples The following is a condensed excerpt from Margaret Farley's chapter, "An Ethic For Same-Sex Relations" in A Challenge To Love: Gay and Lesbian Catholics in the Church, edited by Rev. Robert Nugent (Crossroad, 1983). A professor of Christian ethics at Yale Divinity School and former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, Farley writes on medical, sexual, and social ethics. I began by saying that my concern was to move beyond the question of whether or not same-sex relations and sexual activity can ever be justified. By arguing that no absolute prohibition and no absolute blessing can be established from the sources of Christian ethics, I have meant to imply that some same-sex relations and activity can be justified. I have not tried to settle questions of ...

Celibacy and Spiritual Growth [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

Celibacy and Spiritual Growth BY HOWARD GRAY, S.J. Celibacy as a gift from God and a mystery that takes a lifetime to unpack In her memoir, Virgin Time, Virginia Hampl explores the reclamation of her spiritual life through three pilgrimages, to Assisi, to Lourdes, and to the Trappistines community in Redwoods, California. In the third of these pilgrimages, Hampl recounts a particular moment of insight, at evening prayer. In the dark, quiet chapel, a nun enters, reverences the altar, and lights a single large candle. Hampl muses that the candle is not there for light because it illumines only the section of the chapel immediately surrounding its stand. Nor is the candle there for heat, as its warmth extends only a few inches from the flame. But the candle is there for focus, to draw the attention of the congregation to the altar as a place of prayer. Hampl concludes her reverie by noting that this is what the life of these contemplative nuns is about, giving focus to something beyond...

The Myth of Male Celibacy [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

The Myth of Male Celibacy BY RICHARD ROHR A rare gift for the few among priests, an artificial construction for many The revelations of last year seem to be the beginning of the end of what some call "the myth of celibacy." It's not that male celibacy was always false or deceitful, but it was in great part an artificial construct. Men, with the best of original intentions, found out that they were not the mystics that celibacy demanded. That is exactly the point. Celibacy, at least in the male, is a most rare gift. To succeed, it demands conscious communion with God at a rather mature level, it demands many transitions and new justifications at each stage of life, and it demands a specific creative call besides. Many who have ostensibly "succeeded" at it have often, by the second half of life, actually not succeeded in the sense of becoming a God lover, a human lover, and a happy man besides. Practically, however, the demand for celibacy as a prerequisite for ministry is a set-up fo...

A Time to Seek Forgiveness, a Time to Hope [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2003

A Time to Seek Forgiveness, a Time to Hope and school to do all we can to avoid the mistakes of the past and create safeguards for the future. Even now, an audit of the compliance of the Charter for the Protection of Children is being done in every diocese. Much has been done, much needs to be done. Many Catholics feel that it is unfair that national concern on sexual abuse has focused so narrowly on the Catholic Church without a commensurate attempt to address the problem in our contemporary society at large. Yet we can only hope that the bitter medicine we have had to take to remedy our mismanagement of the problem of sexual abuse will prove beneficial to our whole country, making all of us more aware of the dreadful consequences of this crime and more vigilant and effective in eradicating this evil from our midst. How we ultimately deal with the present crisis in our Church will do much to define us as Catholics of the future. If we do not flee from the Boston's new archbishop se...

When Children Reach for God [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

When Children Reach for God BY JULIE DONOVAN MASSEY Handing on the faith can be a two-way street It was a quiet Saturday morning. I cuddled on the couch with one of our daughters as we looked at the small book of children's Bible stories. We examined the stories of Moses and Noah and Jonah. Each page held a brief text accompanied by a powerful illustration. Soon enough we arrived at a page that quoted Jesus saying, "Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs" (Mk. 10:14). The image beside these words was lovely, serene. It depicted a sunny day with just a few clouds. We saw Jesus seated on a rock under a tree, children gazing at him with fond reverence. But before I could become lost in the painter's skillful strokes, one of my children yanked the book from her sister's hand as another child spilled a container of juice on the newly scrubbed kitchen floor. Ah yes, real life with children! So I sighed and admitted ...

IN THIS ISSUE Catechesis, Culture and Conflict [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

IN THIS ISSUE Catechesis, Culture and Conflict We live in a popular culture of disbelief and, too often, cynicism. Thus, handing on the faith to those who come after us is a gift of great value and a core duty and challenge that come with membership in the Catholic Church. It is also an act of faith, for, as Thomas Groome makes clear in his article in this issue, it is only a lived faith that sinks its roots and spreads surely among future generations. Before the recent evidence that sexual abuse of minors was a reality among priests yet often swept under the rug by the hierarchy, and before all the pain and questioning it caused, young Catholics and many adults were looking more critically at the institutional authority of the Church and were less willing to take at face value what it teaches. While the crisis has not made this challenge any easier, there is not the least reason to be less confident about the truth and appeal of the Good News that the Church embodies. The question ...

Toward Total Catechetical Education [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Toward Total Catechetical Education BY THOMAS H. GROOME A communal approach to help people integrate their lives and faith A favorite though false myth of modernity is that we can find a solution, even the solution, to just about any problem. We presume that there must be a formula, even a mathematical equation, to explain all reality and solve its mysteries; finding it only requires the full power of human reasoning. In the great challenge of educating the young, the solution that dominates is schooling. Talk about educating children, and modern consciousness does not think family, or community, or society, or apprenticeship, or mentoring but only schooling. And it understands the latter as a didactic process in a formal setting —teaching as telling to children assembled by rows of desks in classrooms. For its catechetical education, the Church generally swallowed the schooling paradigm hook, line and sinker. Education in faith was presumed to be done best by appointed teachers in ...

Teaching the Fullness of Christian Life [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Teaching the Fullness of Christian Life An excerpt from the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church From sections 11, 111 and IV of Prologue, which gives an overview of the purpose and structure of the Catechism. 11. Handing on the Faith: Catechesis 4 Quite early on, the name catechesis was given to the totality of the Church's efforts to make disciples, to help men believe that Jesus is the Son of God so that believing they might have life in his name, and to educate and instruct them in this life, thus building up the body of Christ. [7] 5 "Catechesis is an education in the faith of children, young people and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted, generally speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life. "[B] 6 While not being formally identified with them, catechesis is built on a certain number of elements of the Church's pastoral mission which have a catechetical aspect,...

What was the Baltimore Catechism? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

What was the Baltimore Catechism? BY PAUL BOUDREAU You want to know why God made me? Sometimes I wonder myself. But I can give you the absolutely correct answer without even looking it up. Here goes: God made me to know him, to love him and to serve him in this world, and to be happy with him forever in the next. I am able to make that statement with the utmost certainty because it is indelibly burned into my memory, stored in a learned-by-heart hot file on my cerebral desktop along with such indispensable items as my name, date of birth, and PIN number. It's there because Sister Faleeta, my grade-school catechism teacher, put it there. It's the answer to question number 6 in the Baltimore Catechism. If you grew up Catholic in America during the middle of the last century as I did, you probably know it, too —especially if you had Sister Faleeta, who would squeeze your face into fish lips if you didn't get the answer right. Catholic kids in my neighborhood often wore the imprint of h...

Believing and Belonging [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Believing and Belonging BY RICHARD A. KAUFFMAN Youth culture in the U.S. is being reinvented every three years, according to Robert J. McCarty. Keeping up with youth culture is like mapping territory that is constantly changing, he says. A Catholic with an evangelical zeal for youth ministry, McCarty has observed the shifting youth territory for a long time. He's been in Catholic youth ministry for 30 years, 14 of them in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and the last six with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, where he is the executive director. In that capacity, he consults with youth directors and Catholic schools throughout the country, and serves as an adviser to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. McCarty believes this generation of American youth may well be one of the most spiritual ever, but they tend to be "believers," not "belongers." They are interested in spirituality and issues of faith, but are indifferent toward institutionalized religion. "The cha...

Teens on the Spiritual Edge [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Teens on the Spiritual Edge BY D. MICHAEL LINDSAY Pressured on many sides, adolescents display spiritual yearning The current cohort of American teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 is lonely, spiritually hungry and intensely aware of the threat of violence. That's the profile that emerges from a recent Gallup Youth Survey Young people fear for their safety at school more than ever, despite dramatic increases in security measures. Nearly one in two (48 percent) teens say they have had bomb threats in their own school since the 1999 Columbine school shootings in Colorado. Close to one in four (2 3 percent) say they are fearful of going to school because of school violence. Black students The spiritual hunger among teens is remarkable. Teenagers express a burgeoning interest in learning about other faith traditions, yet most remain faithful to their own orthodox beliefs. are twice as likely as white students to report that they fear for their physical safety (26 percent versus 13 p...

Sex Education: If Not You, Who? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Sex Education: If Not You, Who? BY KEVIN AND MARILYN RYAN Parents should not let popular culture do the talking on sex Have you talked to your kids about sex lately? —or ever? We know. It's hard enough to talk to them about their hair or their homework, let alone get into the tar baby of human sexuality. Where do you start? When do you start? And anyway, who are we to take on this topic? Maybe we have made our share of mistakes. We've sinned ourselves and violated our own consciences and the Church's teachings. We had premarital sex. We have been adulterers. We used birth control or had an abortion. Our kids start asking us what we did and why. A good friend of ours in Chicago, an outstanding father of five, was recently asked by his 13-year-old son, "Dad, did you ever do drugs?" He quickly answered, "Son, I'm not going to answer questions like that. That's why we have confession. You should know, though, that like the rest of us, your dad is a sinner, but I work every day to please...

Preaching Post-Pubescent [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Preaching Post-Pubescent BY WILLIAM J. O'MALLEY Lower your expectations but don't give up I've taught Christian apologetics to senior boys for 41 years. What works is an intelligent challenge to the firmly held but misguided truisms of the young. Trying to sell the self-surrender of the cross to an audience brainwashed since infancy to self-absorp-tion is like trying to sell the idea of Israel to an al-Qaeda platoon. So how do you turn dyed-in-the-wool, good-hearted pagans into soldiers of Christ? Even the best have almost impregnable certitudes, like: Money, fame, sex and power guarantee happiness; You can feel innocent until you are proven guilty; Homosexuals choose their sexuality; If she wants it as much as you do, who's getting hurt? Despite years of Catholic education, they don't know what genuine Christianity entails. In the worst cases, it means being a sap. Moving up, it means being "un-bad," avoiding sin, eluding Big Brother God. In more gratifying cases, it means kindness...

Of Myths, Mermaids and Girls [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2004

Of Myths, Mermaids and Girls BY JANET CLAUSEN AND MARILYN KIELBASA Some thoughts on nurturing the spirituality of adolescent Catholic girls ONCE UPON A T1ME...." With these words, the power of story comes alive for children whose imaginations are the doorway to identity and meaning in life. Whether read aloud or viewed on the wide screen of Disney's media kingdom, the myths of childhood can be a healthy aspect of development. On the other hand, these myths can be problematic—especially if you're a girl. Of all the fairy tales popular with today's generation of girls and young women, few are as beloved as The Little Mermaid. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale but liberally revised by the Disney studios for an animated version, it is a classic example of an age-old formula: maidens without mothers who find meaning in life only through a man. But the plot of this particular myth is a metaphor for the reality that today's girls face in a culture that devalues their experience, si...
