Untitled [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
Raphael was one of the supreme artistic geniuses of history. Aside from his great frescos, his portraits and drawings are renowned. He was also an accomplished architect, appointed in the last years of his life chief architect for St. Peter's Basilica still in the early stages of construction. Raphael's early death, at age 37, deprived humanity of countless further masterpieces. He was buried in the ancient Roman edifice, the Pantheon, which had been converted into a church. The Latin epithet on his tomb was composed by the Renaissance humanist and cardinal Pietro Bembo: "llle hie est Raphael timuit quo sospite vinci rerum magna parens et moriente mori." "Here lies that (famous) Raphael. While he lived, mother nature feared to be surpassed; now dead, she fears she herself will die."
Revisiting the Catholic Imagination [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
Revisiting the Catholic Imagination Paul Mariani Let's begin with lines Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote some 135 years ago, though the words are as fresh today as they were when he wrote them. News that stays news was how Ezra Pound defined the special quality of successful poetry. To which a poet like Fr. Hopkins, working within the powerful tradition of the Catholic/Christian imagination, would add, Good News that remains always Good News. A Jesuit scholastic winding up his classes in theology— Dominican Thomism, laced with his brilliant insights into the heart of Franciscan Scotism, Hopkins was just months away from ordination when he wrote the untitled sonnet known by its first line: "As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame." What he caught in this poem was nothing less than the very doing-be, the essential inscape of the thing, the brilliant ignition of Creation caught in daylight, sunlight, God's light as it were, enacting the splendor of nature's myriad selves, unself-c...

As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame; As tumbled over rim in roundy wells Stones ring; like each tucked string tells, each hung bell's Bow swung finds tongue to fling out broad its name; Each mortal thing does one thing and the same: Deals out that being indoors each one dwells; Selves —goes itself; myself it speaks and spells, Crying What I do is me: for that I came. f say more: the just man justices; Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces; Acts in God's eye what in Cod's eye he is— Christ —for Christ plays in ten thousand places, Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his To the Father through the features of men's faces. - Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
"Sing to the Lord, Make Music to God's Name!" [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
"Sing to the Lord, Make Music to God's Name!" John Finney "One of the consummate joys for me as a choral/ orchestral conductor is the 'bringing together' of many voices and instruments into a unified whole." The Catholic intellectual tradition is embodied not only in works of theology and philosophy, but in poetry, painting, and music. The Latin Mass is at the heart of the Western musical tradition, providing a canonical text that opens into myriad expressions, which sound the depths of Christian faith and hope, of human longing and rejoicing. The settings of the Mass by the great composers are one of the treasures of the Catholic tradition. They continue to be sung in cathedrals and large churches and often appear on programs in concert halls throughout the world. Though requiring skilled performers, they offer not only aesthetic delight, but deep spiritual insight. And, of course, they are readily available in splendid recordings. One of the consummate joys for me as a choral/orch...

U.S. Latinos and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
U.S. Latinos and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition Hosffman Ospino Catholics in the United States welcomed the third millennium of the Christian era searching. Nothing unusual; this is what in many ways defines Catholicism. Searching for the meaning of our lived faith here and now... for a sense of communal unity in the midst of diversity... for the ideas and expressions that sustain our intellectual endeavors as American Catholics. Where to begin? We could choose various starting points. However, whether we turn to the relics of our past or the changing reality of our present, it is very likely that the answer to those questions will eventually place us face to face with the richness of the U.S. Latino Catholic experience. Our Places There are places of unique enchanting beauty. Their allure, without haste or force, seizes our imagination. When visiting them, they transport us into a different time of history without abandoning the present. When listening attentively, we hear a h...
THE HOLY COUNTENANCE [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
THE HOLY COUNTENANCE Because Jesus Christ walks with us, we know he is real. Because we have come to know him as our constant companion, we know that he is indeed who he says he is: "the way, the truth, and the life." The Salvadoran Jesuit Jon Sobrino writes, "Christ's credibility is assured as far as the poor are concerned, for he maintained his nearness to them to the end. In this sense the cross of Jesus is seen as the paramount symbol of Jesus' approach to the poor, and hence the guarantee of his indisputable credibility." This is indeed a Cod who stayed with us, who resides in our midst—not just "spiritually" but concretely in every aspect of our world. That is how we know this Cod is real. It is not our Christian belief that makes Cod's nearness credible. Rather, it is Cod's nearness that makes Christian belief, especially the paschal mystery, credible. The Christ of Latino/a Catholics encounters us through his wounded, bleeding, holy countenance, the Divino Rostro (Holy Count...
Sesquicentennial Spotlight [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
Sesquicentennial Spotlight During the fall 2012 semester, Boston College began its Sesquicentennial Celebration. We offer selected remarks from the Sesquicentennial events that reflect the theme of the Catholic intellectual tradition. To watch the videos of these events in their entirety, visit bc.edu/150. "... one of our tasks is to review the vision that we have, make sure that it's clear, grounded in our tradition... We hear a lot about the word vision, but it's a word that, for me, suggests a way of seeing and conceiving that is transformative, that offers realizable ideals so compelling that individuals are energized and willing to invest themselves in an activity or an enterprise far more effectively and extensively then they could ever have imagined. Vision that is effective, that's compelling, captures in a concise, convincing fashion the aspirations and ambitions of an institution, of a group of people, and it does that in a way that inspires and sustains. So most simply, a...
The Catholic Intellectual Tradition and Other Religions [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
The Catholic Intellectual Tradition and Other Religions Catherine Cornille "...the Catholic Church clearly acknowledges the presence of elements of truth and grace in other religions. This has led to the development in recent decades of the discipline of comparative theology &gt;, in which theologians engage other religions in an open, constructive, and at times critical way in order to advance Christian theological reflection." The question of the status of other religions in God's plan of salvation has occupied the Catholic intellectual tradition from its very beginning. Christian thinkers of the first centuries such as Justyn Martyr (100-167) and Irenaeus (120-203) Tertullian (155 235) or Origen (185-254) were primarily concerned with defending Christian faith against the accusations by other religions while also acknowledging elements of truth in the teachings of the prophets and of Greek philosophers. While Christianity was understood as the ultimate truth, meant to rep...
Wisdom! Let Us Be Attentive! [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
Wisdom! Let Us Be Attentive! Lawrence S. Cunningham When teaching the Bible to my undergraduates I always ask them, when we get to the sapiential books of the Old Testament, if they know a wise person. I tell them not to think of smart persons (they are a dime a dozen in universities) but of wise persons. Almost inevitably they will mention their grandparents and often add the coda that those elders often did not have a lot of formal education. What these undergraduates intuit is that people who have had some experience in life not only possess some practical intelligence but that their intelligence has been honed and perfected by the life experience of making a living, skirting sickness, experiencing loss, knowing disappointment, and understanding that there are fewer years ahead and a lot more already passed. They are gaining, to borrow John Henry Newman's famous distinction, real knowledge as opposed to notional knowledge. This understanding of wisdom as a kind of deeper knowledg...
THE STONE NOT CUT BY HAND [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2013
THE STONE NOT CUT BY HAND The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. Nebuchadnezzar stared while the prophet blazed. A stone not cut, stormed Daniel, by any human hand, however self-assured or self-deluded. Understand: It is the Lord has quarried here. The king's eyes glazed, because all he knew was earthly power: kings who razed entire cities —dogs, women, babies, mules, the very land. Kings whose subjects, high &amp; low, did their each command. A stone not quarried by any hand but Cod's. Amazed, the king fell back before the prophet's words. A stone that would smash each self-important, self-made idol, whether built of gold or steel or any other thing their throne was made of. Yes, whatever insane, grand mal, suicidal impulse kings could conjure up. A stone shaped by God alone. Womb-warm, lamb-gentle, world-wielding, tidal. - Paul Mariani

FROM THE C2l CENTER DIRECTOR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
FROM THE C2l CENTER DIRECTOR Dear Friend: We begin this issue with a cover image of Pope Francis during World Youth Day in Brazil. An enthusiastic and energetic crowd young and old reaching out to a joyful pope, who is reaching out to them, offers a rich analogy for the Church in the contemporary world. Each of us is called to stretch ourselves to form a more perfect Church in cooperation with grace in bringing about the Kingdom of God. This collection of essays offers examples of renewal some realized and some aspirational as the Church responds to the challenges of the 21st century. Through what Pope Francis calls "Pastoral Conversion," the Church must periodically review the leadership roles with regards to its various ecclesial ministries. Just as critical is the continual examination of the relationships through which these roles address the pastoral needs of the Catholic community. We have been blessed to work with Fr. Michael Himes as the guest editor of this issue, a true vi...

Living Catholicism: A Church in Need of Its People [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
Living Catholicism: A Church in Need of Its People Michael Himes Before we discuss the different roles and relationships in the Catholic Church, such as the role of authority, or the relationship between our diocesan priests and their bishop, or how parishes might function, or any of the countless other issues that deserve discussion among Catholics today, the first question that we must answer is why we care about being a Church at all. Catholicism is alive. Understanding this simple statement is crucial to understanding the nature of the Catholic Church. It is often easy to reduce Catholicism to a philosophy we subscribe to, or a list of truths we believe in. While philosophies and statements of truth are an integral part of being human, Catholicism is so much more. Catholicism is the ongoing history of the People of God. In other words, Catholicism is the life of what we have come to call "the Church." Catholicism is alive because we are alive as a community of believers. The way...
Teaching or COMMANDING? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013
Teaching or COMMANDING? Nicholas Lash Wheryßishops Instruct the Faithful When the Second Vatican Council ended, several of the bishops who took part told me that the most important lesson they had learned through the conciliar process had been a renewed recognition that the Church exists to be, for all its members, a lifelong school of holiness and wisdom, a lifelong school of friendship (a better rendering of caritas than "charity" would be). It follows that the most fundamental truth about the structure of Christian teaching cannot lie in distinctions between teachers and pupils—although such distinctions are not unimportant—but in the recognition that all Christians are called to lifelong learning in the Spirit, and all of us are called to embody, communicate, and protect what we have learned. Much of what is said about the office of "teachership" or magisterium seems dangerously forgetful of this fact. ASPECTS OF INSTRUCTION The concept of instruction is ambiguous. If I am "inst...
