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 2012
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 C2T CENTER DIRECTOR Dear Friends: The 2011-12 academic year marks the ninth year since the Church in the 21st Century initiative was established by Fr. William P. Leahy, S.J., president of Boston College. And the current issue of C2l Resources on Catholics: A Sacramental People is the 18th in the series of Resources that spans this period. The center was founded in the midst of the clerical sexual abuse crisis that was revealed in Boston and the nation in 2002. C2l was intended to be the University's response to this crisis and set as its mission the goals of becoming a catalyst and resource for the renewal of the Catholic Church by focusing on four focal issues: handing on the faith; relationships and sexuality in the Catholic Church; roles and relationships in the Church; and the Catholic intellectual tradition. In the past nine years, the ...

Catholics: A Sacramental People [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Catholics: A Sacramental People JOHN F. BALDOVIN, S.J. The first line of Gerard Manley Hopkins's poem (printed in full on the opposite page) is a fine starting point for considering the importance of sacraments and sacramentality for Catholics. The best of our Catholic tradition has always shown an immense respect for and appreciation of the goodness of God's creation. Put simply, we don't believe that it's necessary to flee the world and created things to encounter God. On the contrary, because of the goodness of creation and especially because God chose to commit him irrevocably to humankind and our created world in the Incarnation, we believe that God encounters us through what He has made. Put another way, God doesn't communicate His life to us despite our created, physical, human condition but precisely in the midst of it. "The world is charged with the grandeur of God." Moreover, a number of 20th-century Catholic theologians (especially Karl Rahner, S.J. and Edward Schillibeec...
GOD'S GRANDEUR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
GOD'S GRANDEUR The world is charged with the grandeur of Cod. It will flame out, like shining from shook foil; It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod? Generations have trod, have trod, have trod; And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil; And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod. And for all this, nature is never spent; There lives the dearest freshness deep down things; And though the last lights off the black West went Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs— Because the Holy Chost over the bent World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
What Makes Us Catholic: The Sacramental Principle [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
What Makes Us Catholic: The Sacramental Principle Catholic Christianity emphasizes that the divine-human covenant is enacted within the everyday of life; here is where "it's at" between ourselves and God. Here God outreaches and engages with us. Here we respond as responsive partners. Catholic tradition gathers up this conviction that our covenant is realized through the ordinary of life in the principle of sacramentality. Nothing is more significant to what makes us Catholic than the sacramental principle. It epitomizes a Catholic outlook on life in the world; if allowed only one word to describe Catholic imagination, we'd have to say sacramental. Theologian Richard Mcßrien writes, "No theological principle or focus is more characteristic of Catholicism or more central to its identity than the principle of sacramentality." Although that is surely true, Catholic Christians tend to associate sacramentality too exclusively with what happens in church, with the celebration of the seven...
The Blessing of a Latino/a Religious Worldview [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
The Blessing of a Latino/a Religious Worldview NANCY PINEDA-MADRID The popular religious practices of Latino/a Catholicism offer a valuable sacramental view of the world. "...Blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear." (Mt 13:16) Informed pastors and engaged parishioners have heard many times over that U.S. Catholic parishes are blessed by the active presence of diverse communities of Catholics. But, as many pastors know firsthand, bringing diverse communities together can be perilous work. Needless to say, language and cultural differences contribute significantly to the challenge. Misunderstandings and confusions abound. But, when thoughtfully done and with the help of God's grace, this work can lead to experiences of church that are both momentous and lasting. While many ethnic and racial groups contribute to the diversity of the U.S. Catholic Church, more often than not Latinos make up the largest part of the mix. Catholicism is undergoing a significant s...
Sacraments: The Road Back to Christ [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Sacraments: The Road Back to Christ DAVID FARINA TURNBLOOM That Jesus Christ lies at the heart of the Catholic faith should not come as a surprise to any Christian. However, all too often, Roman Catholicism is viewed as (and, indeed, practiced as) a faith centered on a Church and not on Jesus. How, then, as Catholics, are we to return Jesus to the center of our faith? I suggest that the answer to this question may be the sacraments. During a recent Holy Thursday liturgy, my father had a profound religious experience. During the washing of the feet, the pastor invited anyone who wished to wash someone's feet to come to the front. My mother turned to my father and said she would like to wash his feet. My mother has multiple sclerosis and has lost the use of her legs and arms. Nevertheless, my mother insisted and the two made their way to the front of the congregation. Through the help of fellow parishioners, my mother was able to take my father's feet and wash them as Jesus had done f...
Pope Benedict XVI: From Homily on the "Feast of the Baptism of the Lord" [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Pope Benedict XVI: From Homily on the "Feast of the Baptism of the Lord" "The Baptism of Jesus, which we are commemorating today, fits into this logic of humility and solidarity: It is the action of the One who wanted to make himself one of us in everything and who truly joined the line of sinners; he, who knew no sin, let himself be treated as a sinner (cf. 2 Cor 5:21), to take upon his shoulders the burden of the sin of all humanity, including our own sin. He is the "servant" of Yahweh of whom the Prophet Isaiah spoke in the First Reading (cf. 42:1). His humility is dictated by the desire to establish fall communion with humanity, by the desire to bring about true solidarity with man and with his human condition. Jesus' action anticipates the Cross, his acceptance of death for man's sins. This act of abasement, by which Jesus wanted to comply totally with the loving plan of the Father and to conform himself with us, expresses the full harmony of will and intentions that exists bet...
Infant Baptism and Adult Faith [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Infant Baptism and Adult Faith MICHAEL DRUMM Baptism is a communal rather than an individual affair. No effort should be spared in doing away with any semblance of private baptism. It should never be a private family affair and if it is, then this should be changed. A gathering of two families from hither and thither does not constitute a gathering of the ekklesia. The underlying reason for the "privatization" of baptism is that it is perceived in the popular mind as essentially concerned with freeing the individual from original sin while often forgetting the other central effects of the sacrament: participation in the paschal mystery, entry into the community of the Church, and the giving of the Holy Spirit. By right, baptismal celebrations should take place during the key gathering of the local community at its Sunday Eucharist. This is not nearly so difficult as some priests suggest. It is hardly surprising that our Sunday gatherings are so anonymous when we don't even celebrate...
The Missionary Nature of Confirmation [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
The Missionary Nature of Confirmation MARC B. CARON "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses." World Youth Day (WYD) 2008 participants will remember that passage from Acts 1:8 as the theme of the event in Sydney, Australia. The theme evoked both the name that Portuguese explorer Pedro Fernandez de Quiros gave to the continent in 1606 —"the Southern Land of the Holy Spirit"—and the sacrament of confirmation. During that World Youth Day, Pope Benedict XVI confirmed 24 young people (14 Australians and 10 from other continents) at a Mass in which 400,000 pilgrims participated. During the liturgy of the Eucharist, the relationship of confirmation and Eucharist was stressed as the pope distributed communion to the confirmandi. Long before that communion rite at the Mass at Randwick Racecourse, World Youth Day participants were pointed to see the connection among the sacraments of initiation. Their several-kilometer walk the day before th...
Confirmation: A Sacrament in Search of a Theology [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Confirmation: A Sacrament in Search of a Theology OWEN F. CUMMINGS It used to be said that confirmation was a sacrament in search of a theology. Indeed, it may still be said to some extent because despite advances made in the understanding of this eucharistic sacrament, its variegated practice throws up different models, not all of which overlap theologically. Fr. Paul Turner, a priest of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, an alumnus of Sant' Anselmo in Rome, has devoted a great deal of time to the study of this sacrament and concludes that there are seven basic models of confirmation. Turner's models are as follows: (1) The Christian Initiation of Adults model in which confirmation is consequent upon the celebration of baptism at the Easter Vigil; (2) chrismation, the Eastern version of confirmation, in which all who are baptized (including infants and children) are immediately chrismated, that is, anointed with myron/chrism afterwards; (3) confirmation as celebrated by many ch...
Anointing as Pastoral-Sacramental Ministry to the Sick [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Anointing as Pastoral-Sacramental Ministry to the Sick The renewal of the anointing of the sick in the Catholic Church is an ongoing effort to rescue the sacrament from its own malaise as "extreme unction," a medieval and post-Tridentine practiced theology that has proven quite virulent in its resistance to the reform prescribed by Vatican 11. The postconciliar rite replaces the mechanistic view of anointing as cleansing the soul for immediate entry into the beatific vision (and, thus, the priest's bedside arrival as a veritable declaration of death), with a symbolic meaning and purpose far more resonant with the faith revealed in the Gospel. That, however, redefines the sacrament as one of healing, the recognition that God is working through human symbolism as part of a larger sacramental reality of shared faith within a community of believers. Bracketing the isolated, condensed manner of anointing the sick in emergencies as an abbreviated rite necessitated "by the special circumst...
