The Church in the 21st Century Center serves as a catalyst and a resource for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the United States. [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
The Church in the 21st Century Center serves as a catalyst and a resource for the renewal of the Catholic Church in the United States. FROM THE c2l CENTER DIRECTOR Dear Friends: This spring issue of C2l Resources brings you the second half of the Church in the 21st Century Center's 2010-2011 theme of Grace and Commitment: The Vocations of Laity, Religious, and Ordained. It complements the fall issue that explored the response of lay men and women to the call of Christ, emerging from baptism to take root in myriad ways in all forms of human endeavor. This issue now turns your attention to the roles of the ordained —bishops, priests, and deacons —in serving the Church, and to the many ways in which men and women religious, committed to the evangelical counsels, bear witness to Christ's continuing presence among us. Our guest editor, Fr. Richard Lennan, professor and chairman of the Weston Jesuit Department in Boston College's new School of Theology and Ministry, has developed a rich c...

Holiness: The Paradoxical Vocation [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
Holiness: The Paradoxical Vocation BY RICHARD LENNAN Language matters. Witness the effect of Barack Obama's appeal to "hope" as the motif of his presidential campaign in 2008: The resonances of that word attracted people in numbers that far exceeded those drawn to explicit policies. In a different way, another demonstration of the importance of language comes from the fact that we are now more sensitive to the dangers of "hate speech." Language, then, as postmodern philosophy reminds us, does not simply describe reality, it helps to construct it. Recognition of the formative power of language ought to come easily to members of the Christian community: We believe that all that exists came into being because God "spoke." More particularly, the existence and identity of the Christian community derive fully from God's "Word," spoken in our history by the "one like us." At their best, the members of the Christian community recognize that attention to God's word is inseparable from the wi...
PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
PRAYER Loving God, Is it I, Lord? Are you calling me to a vocation of ministry in the Church as Priest, Sister, Brother or Deacon? Or if I am already living out a life's vocation, are you asking me to help call others to the ministry of leadership in the Church? We do need men and women to help lead us as Church, Lord. We are your people of the valley, prairie and pines. Speak to us Lord. Open the minds and hearts of many men and women to live your Word and build your Kingdom. Speak to me Lord. Plant your Word within me so that whatever you call me to be or do I may say Yes, Here I Am Lord.
A Renewed Commitment to Consecrated Life in the Third Millennium [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
A Renewed Commitment to Consecrated Life in the Third Millennium BY THE CONGREGATION FOR INSTITUTES OF CONSECRATED LIFE AND SOCIETIES OF APOSTOLIC LIFE This document, published in 2002, explores both the challenges facing those seeking to live as consecrated religious today and possibilities for such a life of witness. Rediscovering the Meaning and Quality of Consecrated Life 12. The difficulties that consecrated persons face today take on many faces, especially if we take into account the different cultural contexts in which they live. The decrease in members in many institutes and their aging, evident in some parts of the world, give rise to the question of whether consecrated life is still a visible witness, capable of attracting young people. If, as is affirmed in some places, the third millennium will be the time of promotion of the laity, of associations, and of ecclesial movements, we can rightfully ask what place will be reserved for the traditional forms of consecrated life...
FIVE MOVES FOR THE LONG HAUL [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
FIVE MOVES FOR THE LONG HAUL Recently I heard an interview with the bishop of a large diocese. At one point he was asked, "As a leader in the Church today, what do you consider as your single most important task?" The bishop, a sincere and prayerful man, answered, "To protect the faith." I once heard England's Cardinal Basil Hume give a very different answer to the same question. Asked by a journalist what he considered to be the most important task facing the Church today, he replied, "To help save the planet." The two are very different and I think we know which runs closer to Jesus. Jesus, in defining his meaning and ministry, said, "My flesh is food for the life of the world." We can easily miss what's contained in that. Notice that Jesus is not saying that his flesh is food for the minister or for the life of the Church. His body is food for the life of the world and the world is larger than the minister or the Church. We need to keep that horizon in front of us always as we do...
The Future of Religious Life [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
The Future of Religious Life BY TIMOTHY RADCLIFFE, O.P. Everything exists because God calls it into existence. God says let there be light, and it sprang into being. There is a lovely passage in the prophet Baruch: "The stars shone in their watches and were glad; he called them and they said, "Here we are!" They shone with gladness for him who made them" (Baruch 3.34). The existence of a star is not just a bald scientific fact. Stars joyful say Yes to God. The existence of everything is a Yes to God. What is odd about human beings is that we do not just say "Yes" by existing. We say Yes to God with our words. God speaks a word to us, and we reply with our words. It is for this that we were created, to answer God's word with our words. This human vocation is summed up in a beautiful Hebrew word, Hineni. It means, "Here I am." When God calls from the burning bush, Moses replies, "Hineni," "Here I am." When God calls Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, then Abraham replies, " Hineni ," "Here I...
Religious Life as a Prophetic Life [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
Religious Life as a Prophetic Life BY SANDRA SCHNEIDERS, I.H.M. Sandra Schneiders explores the notion of "charism" as it applies to the religious life; most particularly, she examines what the "prophetic" charism of religious might mean for the Church and world today. Religious life has been called a prophetic life form both in official documents and in spiritual writing almost since its inception. The meaning of this affirmation, however, is often unrealistically romanticized or left so piously vague as to be useless. In the current situation in which the nature of ministerial religious life as a prophetic life form in the Church is in public contention it would be helpful for us, as a Church in general and as religious in particular, to clarify the meaning of this affirmation. First, it is the life form, not the individual religious, that is characterized as "prophetic." Just as entrance into an enclosed monastic community (often called a "contemplative order") does not make one a...

Let Your Life Shine [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
Let Your Life Shine BY MARGARET ELETTA GUIDER, O.S.F. As a leader in a religious institute, Margaret Eletta Guider reflects on what she has learned from the experience of leadership in challenging times. In April of 2008, I was elected to serve as councilor formission for the Franciscan congregation of which I have been a vowed member since 1981. Amidst the challenges and blessings of the past three years, I have undergone what might be best described as a "change of mood" regarding religious life in particular and consecrated life in general. Early on in my term of office, I had the opportunity to be a delegate at an international Franciscan assembly in Assisi where I found myself in conversation with the keynote speaker, Anthony Gittins, CSSP, my former professor and thesis director, about his book A Presence that Disturbs: A Call to Radical Discipleship} In the book, he makes use of grammatical moods as an interpretive key to understanding discipleship. I have found my own evolvi...
The Formation of Bishops [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011
The Formation of Bishops BY THE CONGREGATION FOR BISHOPS In this document from 2004, the Congregation for Bishops discusses the person and role of the bishop in the light of the categories of formation —human, spiritual, intellectual, pastoral—that are now also generally applied to the formation of lay ministers and priests. The Duty of Ongoing Formation The bishop will realize that he too has a duty to attend to his ongoing formation, a duty he shares with all the faithful whatever their age or condition in life, whatever their level of responsibility in the Church. The inner dynamism of the sacrament of orders, the bishop's own vocation and mission, and his duty to study closely the particular problems and issues of the society he has to evangelize, impel him to grow day by day toward the fullness of mature manhood in Christ (cf. Eph 4:13). In this way, the charity of Christ and the Church's solicitude toward all people will shine forth ever more clearly through the testimony of t...
