A Changed Sacrament with Many Graces [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
A Changed Sacrament with Many Graces BARBARA BECICWITH Catholics have embraced Vatican IPs emphasis on anointing of the sick as a sacrament for healing the sick and aged, as well as comforting the dying. My mother had a stroke three and a half years ago and, somehow in all the confusion, received the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick four times in as many days. Now 87, she survived —her mind intact but the left side of her body frozen. She now lives in a nursing home. I asked her recently if she remembers being anointed. "Yes," she said. "What do you remember?" "I lived." The sacrament of anointing of the sick used to be called "last rites" or "extreme unction" because the usual recipient was a dying person. Many Catholics still carry cards or wear medals so that, if they are in an accident, a priest is called to administer the sacrament. But since the Second Vatican Council, the sacrament is not just for those in imminent danger of death, but for all Catholics whose "health is ser...
Why Goto Confession? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Why Goto Confession? JOHN BALDOVIN, S.J. Many older Catholics can remember the Saturday afternoons of their youth being partially taken up by the practice of weekly confession. Although it was never putin writing, there was a kind of unwritten rule that if you wanted togo to Holy Communion on Sunday, you needed togo to confession on Saturday. Of course, the timing minimized the likelihood that you would sin seriously before the next morning. Remember, these were the days when the weekly Mass of obligation had to be celebrated on Sunday before noon. The Saturday afternoon timing might also have favored those who ate meat on Friday. (Why was it so tempting in those days to eat meat on Friday?) Today, of course, the situation is much changed. There are no long lines at several confessionals in the church on Saturdays. (I recall that depending on what you had to confess choosing between monsignor and the two curates took some discernment —in those days all the priests would be on confes...
How Do You Goto Confession? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
How Do You Goto Confession? KURT STASIAK, 0.5.8. It used to be that Catholics learned how togo to confession with their mother's milk. What to say, how to say it—and, of course, what didn't happen if you didn't say it—learning about these things was simply part of growing up Catholic. Today, though, there are many who aren't quite sure what the sacrament of reconciliation (or penance or confession) is all about, much less how togo about celebrating it. Father John Baldovin has offered some insights on why it is important to goto confession. Here I'll try to clear up some of the confusion some have about how one actually goes about celebrating this sacrament of God's mercy. An important first point: there is no one, precise, "exactly right" way togo to confession. God's offer of forgiveness won't grind to a halt if you're confused about what to do next or you forget the words of a certain prayer. The priest is not a referee, scrupulously vigilant that you stay "in bounds" and follow ...
Liturgies of Reconciliation [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Liturgies of Reconciliation BERNARD J. COOKE It is difficult to think of anything in Catholic life that has changed more rapidly and more drastically in recent years than the sacrament of reconciliation. Just a fewyears ago, it was a common scene on a Saturday afternoon and evening to have numbers of people coming to the church togo to confession, and these numbers were greatly increased just before key religious holidays, such as Christmas and Easter. Hearing confessions was one of the principal activities of parish pastors, and not infrequently there was need to bring in an extra priest to help with these confessions. Today, one recalls this as something out of an almost-forgotten past. Saturday afternoons and evenings are now relatively quiet times around most parishes. The parish billboard lists an hour when the pastor will be available for confessions, but scarcely anyone comes. Large numbers of people who previously would have gone to confession at least twice a month now go o...
The Sacrament of Marriage [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
The Sacrament of Marriage MICHAEL LAWLER AND WILLIAM ROBERTS In the Bible there is an action called a prophetic symbol. Jeremiah, for instance, buys a potter's earthen flask, dashes it to the ground before a startled crowd, and proclaims the meaning of his action. Thus says the Lord of hosts: so will I break this people and this city, as one breaks a potter's vessel" (19:11). Ezekiel takes a brick, draws a city on it, builds siege works around the city, and lays siege to it. This city, he explains, is "even Jerusalem" (4:1) and his action "a sign for the house of Israel" (4:3). He takes a sword, shaves his hair with it, and divides the hair into three bundles. One bundle he burns, another he scatters to the wind, a third he carries around Jerusalem shredding into even smaller pieces, explaining his action in the proclamation: "This is Jerusalem" (5:5). Self-understanding in Israel was rooted in the great covenant between the god Yahweh and the people Israel, It is easy to predict th...
A Promised Lifetime [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
A Promised Lifetime COLLEEN CAMPION During my high school years, I held a part-time job at our parish rectory, answering the telephone and the doorbell each weekend. Quite often, I opened the door to welcome engaged couples who came to discuss their wedding with one of the parish priests. On a table near the front door rested a stack of informational materials, including one entitled, "A wedding is a day, a marriage is a lifetime." The catchy title captured my attention, as it was able in a concise manner to urge couples to place as much attention on preparing for their marriage as they do in planning the wedding. In the course of my years in Catholic high school, we had certainly learned about the sacrament of matrimony and understood it to be a lifetime commitment. Each year we had observed "vocation awareness week," when we discerned what our own vocational call from God would be. Although marriage was always included in the discussion, the week concentrated heavily on understand...
A WEDDING BLESSING [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
A WEDDING BLESSING My dear friends, let us pray that God's blessing and grace will descend on Tim and Mary Kay, now married in Christ, and that through the sacrament of Christ's body and blood God will unite in love this couple now joined in the holy covenant of marriage. Blessed are you, O Lord God of Israel, God of Abraham and Sarah, God of Isaac and Rebekah, our Creator, our Redeemer. Your love sustains the human race and fills us with joy. Your compassion and kindness extend from age to age, from the rising even to the setting of the sun. Blessed are you, who give us life and breath to proclaim your wonders, who give us strength to fulfill your purpose, who give us the example of your powerful love in the life you have poured out for us in Jesus Christ, our brother and our savior. We praise you, Lord, for you have called us to a new and neverending covenant and have formed us into your people to do your will and to be a sign of your love and mercy to all the world. We praise you...
Faithful Love [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Faithful Love ME LIN DA BROWN DONOVAN "Love is patient, love is kind... It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." So wrote St. Paul in chapter 13 of his First Letter to the Corinthians. This year as my parents celebrated their wedding anniversary, they lived out St. Paul's words in a way that gave witness to the depth of their sacramental bond. Elsie and Joe Brown are both 90 years old. They lived in their own home together in Topeka, Kansas, until October 2010, when Elsie's fragile mobility made it clear that Joe could not continue safely to care for her at home. She moved to a small care facility in their neighborhood, while Joe, fiercely independent, remained in their home. Joe's failing eyesight has left him legally blind, and lung disease requires him to use a portable oxygen unit at all times. Although this may sound like a frail person, he still mows his own lawn, tends his vegetable garden, and walks 0.6 miles to visit Elsie every day. ...
Naming the Shadows [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Naming the Shadows MICHAEL A. KING I've seen it often: A beloved church member dies and at the funeral the eulogies goon and on, with the bereaved ones helping to anoint the saint. But then the eulogizers go home, and the bereaved are left behind to find a foothold for grieving this acclaimed someone —and to deal with the reality that the life of the one who died contained shadows as well as sunshine. We often avoid naming people's shadows, not only in funerals but also in church. We flinch from our sins, our frailties, and our messes. We choose the fantasy of eternal sunshine over the richness of naming the truth, in all its fierce and sometimes frightening wildness. After my mother died, I spoke of her wild spirit as I thanked those who had loved her through difficult final weeks. At times the ferocity that had made her grand also made her a challenge to those who knew her. One courageous respondent spoke up, using humor that wrapped my mother in tenderness, and described her enco...
Life Is Changed, Not Ended [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2012
Life Is Changed, Not Ended CATHERINE DOOIEY, O.P. In him, who rose from the dead, our hope of resurrection dawned. The sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality. Lord, for your faithful people life is changed, not ended. When the body of our earthly dwelling lies in death we gain an everlasting dwelling place in heaven. Preface for Christian Death I (P77) Excerpt from the English translation of the Roman Missal © 1973, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc. (ICEL). All rights reserved. "What is Heaven?" "Where is it?" "How do we get there?" These questions are natural for Christians. It is part of the human psyche to ponder the afterlife. Our prayers, and especially our liturgical prayers, use a variety of words and phrases to describe life after death. We refer to life everlasting or eternal life (Matthew 18:8 ff), the world to come, seeing God face-to-face (1 John 3:2), being with Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:17 and Romans 2:23), a sharing in th...
