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 September 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: Boston College is excited to bring you this fall issue of C2l Resources focusing on what all Catholics experience as the very center of their faith: the Eucharist. Our spring issue will continue this theme and explore "Catholics as a sacramental people." We are fortunate to have John Baldovin, S.J., professor of historical and liturgical theology at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, as the distinguished guest editor for both the fall and spring issues. Paralleling this issue we will bring to campus a series of noted scholars who will develop the many facets of the Eucharist presented in the articles that follow. For those unable to come to campus, the date on which a video-streamed version of each program will be available on the C2IC website (www.bc.edu/church2l) is noted on the schedule y...

Eucharist: The Many-Faceted Jewel [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
Eucharist: The Many-Faceted Jewel JOHN F. BALDOVIN, S.J. O sacred banquet! in which Christ is received, the memory of his Passion is renewed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory to us is given. Alleluia Antiphon for the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ With these beautiful poetic words the great medieval theologian St. Thomas Aquinas summed up the centrality of the Eucharist for us Christians. The Eucharist is indeed the center of our lives quite simply because Christ himself is the center of our lives—not only the Lord Jesus who lived, taught, healed, was crucified and raised from the dead 2,000 years ago, not only the Christ whose saving and selfgiving sacrifice we are mysteriously attached to every time we celebrate, not only the Christ whose bodily presence sustains us week by week (or even day by day), but also the Christ who beckons us forth to our ultimate vocation, living with him in the glory of the Father and the Holy Spirit. For Catholics, and...
DRAW US IN THE SPIRIT'S TETHER [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
DRAW US IN THE SPIRIT'S TETHER Draw us in the Spirit's tether, for when humbly in your name two or three are met together, you are in the midst of them. Alleluia! Alleluia! Touch we now your garment's hem. As disciples used to gather in the name of Christ to sup, then with thanks to Cod the giver break the bread and bless the cup. Alleluia! Alleluia! So now bind our friendship up. All our meals and all our living make as sacraments of you, that by caring, helping, giving, we may be disciples true. Alleluia! Alleluia! We will serve with faith anew. —Percy Dearmer (1867-1936)
Why Goto Mass? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
Why Goto Mass? JOHN F. BALDOVIN, S.J. In the Gospel of John, Jesus invites his followers to "come and see." Nowhere is that invitation from the Lord clearer than in the invitation to share in the celebration of the Mass. Not every Mass is going to be a great and deeply moving experience, not for the vast majority of us anyway. But there is a great deal to be said for simple fidelity to our worship. St. Ignatius Loyola says in the Spiritual Exercises that the person who is experiencing some desolation (dryness, "downness") in prayer can be helped by remembering times of consolation in the past. I think that is true not only of individual prayer but of communal, liturgical prayer as well. In any case, the Mass may not always be a deeply emotional experience, but it is always an experience of the Lord giving himself to us in his word and his sacramental presence and calling forth our self-giving in return. Why bother? Why bother going to Mass at all when we can worship God anywhere? 1....
THE VAST OCEAN BEGINS JUST OUTSIDE OUR CHURCH: THE EUCHARIST [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
THE VAST OCEAN BEGINS JUST OUTSIDE OUR CHURCH: THE EUCHARIST Something has happened to the bread and the wine. They have been blessed. What now? The body leans forward to receive the gift from the priest's hand, then the chalice. They are something else now from what they were before this began. I want to see Jesus, maybe in the clouds or on the shore, just walking, beautiful man and clearly someone else besides. On the hard days I ask myself if I ever will. Also there are times my body whispers to me that I have. MARY OLIVER
Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium VATICAN II The Most Sacred Mystery of the Eucharist 14. Mother Church earnestly desires that all the faithful should be led to that fully conscious, and active participation in liturgical celebrations which is demanded by the very nature of the liturgy. Such participation by the Christian people as "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a redeemed people" (1 Pet. 2:9; cf. 2:45), is their right and duty by reason of their baptism. In the restoration and promotion of the sacred liturgy, this full and active participation by all the people is the aim to be considered before all else; for it is the primary and indispensable source from which the faithful are to derive the true Christian spirit; and therefore pastors of souls must zealously strive to achieve it, by means of the necessary instruction, in all their pastoral work. 47. At the Last Supper, on the night when He was betrayed, our Savior instituted the euchari...
The Sacrament of Real Presence [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
The Sacrament of Real Presence ROBERT IMBELLI At a time when so many experience an absence of meaning and hope in their lives, Christians, nourished by the Eucharist, are sent forth to be heralds and stewards of Christ's healing presence. William Butler Yeat's "The Second Coming" contains what are, perhaps, the most-quoted lines of 20th-century poetry. "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world." Written in 1920, the poem not only summed up the horror of the still young century, it seemed prescient of horrors yet to come. Postmodernity may be, to some degree, a pretentious academic fad. But its soil is undoubtedly the collapse of an authoritative, life-giving center and the ensuing fragmentation experienced daily in culture, politics, and individual lives. One result is the emergence of the "protean self," imaginatively portrayed in Woody Allen's film Zelig. Here is the self without a center, blending effortlessly into the most disparate situat...
Parents and Communion: "Lifting the Veil" [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
Parents and Communion: "Lifting the Veil" THOMAS GROOME A deep conviction within the tradition of Celtic spirituality is that there is only a thin veil between the transcendent and immanent, between the sacred and secular, between the Creator and creation, between God and ourselves. Of course, this is a common sentiment throughout the Bible and Christian tradition. For the Psalmist, all of creation proclaims the greatness of God (e.g., Ps 148); Paul was convinced that God is "never far from any one of us" (Acts 17:27); and Ignatius of Loyola insisted that with a little discernment and the eyes of faith, we can "come to see God in all things." The old Celts were also convinced that there are special moments when the veil is lifted or becomes gossamer thin, when our encounter with God becomes palpable, immediate, more than mediated. Again, the mystics of Christian tradition have said as much. The Christian Celts insisted, however, that the veil is at its thinnest, if not entirely lift...
St. Augustine's Sermon 272 [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
St. Augustine's Sermon 272 What you behold now on the altar of God you saw there last night as well. But you have not yet heard what it is, what it means, and of how great a reality is the sacrament. What you see, then, is bread and a cup. This is what your eyes report to you. But your faith has need to be taught that the bread is the body of Christ, the cup the blood of Christ. Perhaps this rather brief statement might be sufficient for belief, but belief requires instruction, for the Prophet says: "Unless you believe, you will not understand" (Is 7:9). So now you can say to me: "You have taught us to believe. Explain, so we may understand." For the following thought may arise in anyone's mind. "We know whence our Lord Jesus Christ took flesh, from the Virgin Mary. As an infant He was nursed. He was brought up. He grew. He attained manhood. He suffered persecution from the Jews. He has hanged on the wood, He was killed on the wood, He was taken down from the wood. He was buried. He...
LOVE BADE ME WELCOME [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
LOVE BADE ME WELCOME Love bade me welcome, yet my soul drew back, Guilty of dust and sin. But quick-ey'd Love, observing me grow slack From my first entrance in, Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning If I lack'd anything. "A guest," I answer'd, "worthy to be here"; Love said, "You shall be he." "I, the unkind, the ungrateful? Ah my dear, I cannot look on thee." Love took my hand and smiling did reply, "Who made the eyes but I?" "Truth, Lord, but I have marr'd them; let my shame Co where it doth deserve." "And know you not," says Love, "who bore the blame?" "My dear, then I will serve." "You must sit down," says Love, "and taste my meat." So I did sit and eat. —George Herbert
What Everyone Needs to Know about Sacramental Real Presence [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2011
What Everyone Needs to Know about Sacramental Real Presence RODICA STOICOIU Made you look! A short column like this one possibly won't carry out the entire promise of this title, but it can go a long way toward providing some basic concepts helpful in understanding sacramental real presence. I will do so by looking at four areas: the understanding of the Eucharist in the earliest New Testament writings, how symbols are to be approached as the language of sacrament, the place of mystery in this expression of Christ's presence, and the role of transubstantiation in the explanation of sacramental real presence. And why goto all this trouble? Well, remember that the celebration of the Eucharist is the most radical act we as Catholics can do. It is the symbol of our unity with God and one another. It is the fullest expression of our identity, born in the waters of baptism and most wholly expressed around the table. Through it we make known that we are the Body of Christ, a communion of p...
