Saying AMEN to Lay Ecclesial Ministry [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Saying AMEN to Lay Ecclesial Ministry BY BISHOP MATTHEW CLARK Bishop Clark identifies the promotion of lay ecclesial as a key dimension of his episcopal ministry, as a way of furthering the mission of the Church in his diocese. The act of ordination does not make one holier than he was before, but leaves one a pilgrim with everyone else. A bishop or a priest is also a searcher, a seeker, and a person of faith whose guidance will always be the Gospel, the teaching of the Church, and the well-being and growth of his local community. No one holds all the answers or all the truths. All Catholics, including bishops, have the gift of the Holy Spirit—alive in the Word, the Eucharist, and the community —as the foundation and source of our faith life. We know that our communities will be less than what God wants them to be if we do not share our gifts. In a community of faith as broad, as ancient, and as complicated as our own, we have to be open to the truth wherever we find it. I think som...

The Ministry of the Bishop: Theological Foundations [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

The Ministry of the Bishop: Theological Foundations BY POPE JOHN PAUL II In his 2003 response to the Synod on bishops, Pope John Paul II identifies God's life as Trinity as the foundation for episcopal ministry; he finds in the Trinity the grounding of the bishop's ministry to teach, lead, and sanctify. The Trinitarian Foundation of Episcopal Ministry 7. The Christologic-al dimension of the pastoral ministry, considered in depth, leads to an understanding of the Trinitarian foundation of ministry itself. Christ's life is Trinitarian. He is the eternal and only-begotten Son of the Father and the anointed of the Holy Spirit, sent into the world; it is he who, together with the Father, pours out the Spirit upon the Church. This Trinitarian dimension, manifested in every aspect of Christ's life and activity, also shapes the life and activity of the bishop. Rightly, then, the Synod Fathers chose explicitly to describe the life and ministry of the bishop in the light of the Trinitarian ec...

Collaborators in Ministry: The Bishop and His Priests [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Collaborators in Ministry: The Bishop and His Priests BY BISHOP ROBERT LYNCH I think our priests want us to be collegial in the years ahead. They have as much and sometimes more of a stake in the decisions that we make for our dioceses than many of us bishops. Oftentimes they have to live with the consequences of our decisions long after we are retired, dead, or transferred. The only way to begin to break down the attitude of "us vs. the chancery" is to bring the priests into the thought, planning, and decisionmaking processes that will ultimately affect the lives of many. The only thing lost to a bishop who chooses a strong collegial approach to his relationship with his priests is the final trace of autocracy in the Church. Our priests want us to share with them our dreams and visions, to consult with them on things that ultimately affect their lives, and to affirm their vision of where the Church might be headed and how best we might get there. Courage is slightly more elusive bu...

The Ministry of the Priest [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

The Ministry of the Priest BY POPE JOHN PAUL II John Paul II develops a theology for understanding the ministry and identity of the ordained priest; he relates the priest to God as Trinity, God's self-revelation in Jesus, and to the mission of the Church. #l2. "The priest's identity," as the synod fathers wrote, "like every Christian identity, has its source in the Blessed Trinity," (20) which is revealed and is communicated to people in Christ, establishing, in him and through the Spirit, the Church as "the seed and the beginning of the kingdom." (21) The apostolic exhortation Christifideles Laid, summarizing the Council's teaching, presents the Church as mystery, communion, and mission: "She is mystery because the very life and love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are the gift gratuitously offered to all those who are born of water and the Spirit (cf. Jn. 3:5) and called to relive the very communion of God and to manifest it and communicate it in history [mission]." (22) It is...

Lay Ministers and Ordained Ministers [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Lay Ministers and Ordained Ministers BY MICHAEL HIMES The sacramental principle so central to the Catholic vision holds that what is always and everywhere true must be embodied somewhere, sometime, so that it can be recognized and celebrated. Sacred time and sacred space are examples of this principle. If God is everywhere, we must select somewhere to acknowledge and honor the presence of God. There is nothing intrinsically holier about a church than about a parking lot, a bank, or a supermarket. By consecrating a particular place as a church or chapel, we set aside a space in which we attend to the divine presence. This sacramental principle may provide a classically Catholic way of distinguishing the laity and the clergy. I suggest that there are responsibilities to which the Church is always called at every moment of its existence, whether in the earliest days of the fledgling community in Jerusalem or now as a worldwide community, and on every level of its life, be it the domest...

Priest: Public, Personal, and Private [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Priest: Public, Personal, and Private BY DAVID RANSON David Ranson explores the tension between the social identity of the priest and the personal being of the priest; he argues for the integration of the personal and public dimensions. As public figures, priests' lives are to be marked by the tension between the public and the personal life. Acceptance of the tension is the foundation of its resolution. But such integration begins with the distinction between "personal" and its oft used, but misleading, synonym, "private." Public figures are not their own person. Their actions, their peccadilloes, have an effect that can be as dramatic as they are significant. A media-conscious society has put public figures perhaps under the most intense scrutiny in history. No longer can royalty, for example, have its customary mistresses and affairs and keep public appearances going with unmitigated aplomb. No longer can politicians have unusual financial arrangements, no matter how long ago, wi...

Presbyteral Identity Within Parish Identity [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Presbyteral Identity Within Parish Identity SUSAN WOOD, S.C.L. Since most people experience priests (presbyters) in the context of a parish, Susan Wood examines the role of the priests in parishes as an expression of unity within the parish community and of communion with the wider Church. Many baptized persons are called to give pastoral care in such roles as parish administrators, catechists, liturgical ministers, and directors of catechumenate programs. Many of them do so as professional ecclesial lay ministers. What distinguishes them from the ordained pastor is that in the case of the ordained minister the community elects this person for ordination by prayer to the Holy Spirit and the laying on of hands by the bishop to represent them in communions corresponding to the threefold office: communion of churches within a pastoral office; communion with Christ's self-offering within a prophetic office; and communion in apostolic faith within a prophetic office. The presbyter repres...

Deconstructing the Priesthood [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Deconstructing the Priesthood BY RICHARD LENNAN In the wake of the multiple challenges confronting the ordained priesthood today, Richard Lennan considers not only why change is difficult, but why change is necessary. The contemporary circumstances of the ordained priesthood confront the Church with what Theresa Monroe names "adaptive challenges." Drawing on principles of leadership theory, Monroe argues that these challenges arise "because some fundamental aspect of the 'world' in which an individual or organization operates has changed.'" In order for adaptation to occur, however, there must be a commitment "to re-examine deeply held values, beliefs, habits, ways of working, or ways of life." 2 The basket of "crises"—aging, vocations, "busyness," and sexual abuse—the ordained priesthood faces suggests that "the world" of ordained ministry has changed, that there is a lack of congruence between the contemporary circumstances of the priesthood and ways of thinking and acting that we...

PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

PRAYER Eternal God, please bless our priests, who represent you on this earth. Make them more greatly aware of the grace that you pour out through them when they minister the sacraments, and help them to fall more deeply in love with You after each and every Mass that they celebrate. Please strengthen our priests, who shepherd your flock, when they are in doubt of their faith, that they may be examples of your Truth and guide us always on the path to you. We ask these things of You our eternal Priest. Amen.

Reimagining the Priesthood [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Reimagining the Priesthood BY MICHAEL HEHER I return again to St. Peter, dear old reckless Peter. The boat is his, but we meet him still out on the water, the place, he assures us, where we too belong. Yes, he is knocked about by enormous waves and the winds rage around him; he knows the times are desperate. But from these he is distracted momentarily by the reassuring face of Jesus. He knows his own frailty, for he will be quick to accept the rescuing hand of his Savior, glad to have hold of it. To the extent we are unwilling to join him there, unwilling to take the attendant risk that we could, like him, end up flailing about, looking silly and nearly drowning, we will look as cowardly and sound as whiny as we are. Please, please, please come to the seminary, we plead. But what do we teach them to do in the seminaries? To be as bright and creative as they can? To take chances? To be ready for a life of sacrifice? Do we train them for resilience and generosity? Do we insist they ma...

The Priceless Gift of the Priesthood [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

The Priceless Gift of the Priesthood BY WILLIAM P. LEAHY, S.J., PRESIDENT, BOSTON COLLEGE I love being a priest. To be a priest is to be given a precious gift and invited to serve people and work for the greater glory of God in a special way. I realize that such convictions may strike some as inconceivable in today's world, but they are true for me and for so many men who have chosen to minister as priests in the Catholic Church. I am a Jesuit priest because of the grace of God, not because I have earned or merited such a vocation. When I review my life, I see evidence of grace and freedom, freedom as defined by the Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner: "the power to decide about oneself and to actualize oneself." Ever since I can remember, there has been a sense that I would someday be a priest. I recall a moment in lowa when I was seven or eight. My brothers, sisters, and I were talking about what we would be when we grew up. I said that I wanted to be a farmer or a baseball player, but ...

PRIESTLY MINISTRY IN MULTIPLE PARISHES [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

PRIESTLY MINISTRY IN MULTIPLE PARISHES What is it like for priests to provide ministry to more than one parish? Their level of satisfaction is remarkably high. Priests consistently describe the celebration of the Eucharist as most life-giving to them and to the parishioners. ... The lack of staff and the small sizes of many parishes often result in such a small congregation that less than adequate responses and singing are possible, but volunteers do their best to help make it meaningful worship. It is not surprising that among the most rewarding aspects of this ministry is the involvement of parishioners and their deep gratitude for the services of the priests. Difficulties in serving multiple parishes also are clearly described. Lack of time to do everything, especially with long distances to travel, the demands of parishioners, who are used to having their own priests, scheduling problems, and fear of parish closures all contribute to anxiety and exhaustion. In effect, what is re...

Reflections of a Priest in a Time of Pain and Privilege [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

Reflections of a Priest in a Time of Pain and Privilege BY PATRICK BERGQU IST There is a mark left on our hearts, a scar left on our souls, as we now contemplate our priesthood. And while this mark, this scar, might be born of sin and sadness, it is not to say that it is without meaning, or purpose, or even promise. To be sure, we priests have experienced a loss. We have been hurt, even as we now come to a fuller realization of those whom we have hurt. But it is precisely from this wounded and broken place that we are called to minister. It is from this broken and wounded place that we stutter and stammer, because as of yet we cannot sing—which might explain but does not excuse our silence. It is in this place that we have grieved and are grieving still. Grief washes over us, baptizing us, as we weep for the life we once knew, or thought we once knew. And it is here in this place, in our long dark winter's night, that we are given to write a new psalm, a new poem for our priesthood....

A Deacon's Wife Reflects [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

A Deacon's Wife Reflects BY DIANE BERNING Deacons form the only group among the Catholic Church's ordained ministers for whom marriage is a norm, rather than an exception. What's it like, then, to be the wife of an ordained minister? Diane Berning explores what can be a complex role. I love my husband, Frank, and I love my Lord, Jesus Christ, and I love my Church. I believe in my husband, in Jesus Christ, and my Church. Now that I have said this you are probably saying so or where's the but. There really isn't a "but," it's more of a "let's look at the whole picture." The picture for me is life after ordination. What was I told it would be like? My husband the deacon would be busier, more demands would be made on him. I wasn't too worried because he had just retired from his secular job and he had always worked at least 60 to 70 hours a week. We owned our own businesses for over 25 years. I would find myself sitting in a pew alone at most services. This too was not new since he had ...

A PORTRAIT OF THE PERMANENT DIACONATE: A STUDY FOR THE U.S. CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS 2009-2010 [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

A PORTRAIT OF THE PERMANENT DIACONATE: A STUDY FOR THE U.S. CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS 2009-2010 Number of Deacons Twenty-one arch/dioceses report having more than 200 permanent deacons, with Chicago (646 deacons), Trenton (442 deacons), and Galveston-Houston (383) among the top three. Deacons currently minister in all but one diocese in the United States. Eight in 10 permanent deacons in responding arch/dioceses are active in ministry. The 163 Latin rite arch/dioceses that responded to the questionnaire in at least one of the last five years report a total of 14,317 permanent deacons. The six arch/eparchies that have responded report a total of 82 permanent deacons. Extrapolating to include dioceses and eparchies that have never responded to the survey, it can be estimated that there are as many as 17,047 permanent deacons in the United States today and perhaps as many as 16,349 still active in ministry. Demographic Characteristics of Deacons in Active Ministry Ninety-two perce...

The Diaconate [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

The Diaconate BY CARDINAL WALTER KASPER Walter Kasper outlines the role of the deacon. His focus is not primarily on what the deacon "does," but on how the ministry of the deacon expresses in a particular way the mission of the whole Church. In St John's Gospel, Jesus says:"It is the Spirit that gives life; the flesh is of no avail" (6:63). Institutional and structural reforms too can be "useless flesh" (to use this biblical image), if they are not borne up by the lifegiving Spirit. This is why the renewal of the diaconate is first of all a spiritual task. The basic spiritual attitude of the deacon must make clear that the Christian path is not an ascent or a triumphal march in glory, but a path that looks downward, following Jesus Christ who descended from heaven. This "downwardly mobile career" is described in the Christological hymn in the Letter to the Philippians (2:6-11), which prescribes the basic Christian virtue, as the spiritual tradition teaches, namely, the attitude of h...

THE MINISTRY AND IDENTITY OF THE DEACON [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2011

THE MINISTRY AND IDENTITY OF THE DEACON Relationship with the Laity 56. By ordination, deacons are members of the clergy. The vast majority of deacons in the United States, married or celibate, have secular employment and do not engage exclusively in specific church-related ministries. This combination of an ordained minister with a secular occupation and personal and family obligations can be a great strength, opportunity, and witness to the laity on how they too might integrate their baptismal call and state in life in living their Christian faith in society. 57. The laity, as members of the Church, have an obligation and right to share in the communion and mission of the Church. Through his ordination to service, the deacon promotes, in an active fashion, the various lay apostolates and guides these in communion with the bishop and local priests. In collaboration with his bishop and the priests of his diocese, the deacon has a special role to promote communion and to counter the ...
