The Pope and Bishops [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

The Pope and Bishops Richard R. Gaillardetz Collegiality in Service of Catholicity In the very first line of his first public address, Pope Francis said the following: "You all know that the duty of the Conclave was to give a bishop to Rome." These carefully spoken words reaffirm what many Catholics have forgotten: The pope is special because of the Church he presides over; not the universal Church, but the Church of Rome. As if to respond to any confusion caused by his words, Francis went on to say the following: "And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust." For Francis, in order to fulfill his role as pope, he must first seek to be a bishop to his local church. The central importance of the relationship between a bishop and his local church is what gives Catholicism its unique form of unity that we call catholicity. As Christianity d...

Primacy in Communion [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Primacy in Communion The call for a greater participation by the particular churches and their bishops applies to the exercise of the universal magisterium. The bishops are not only coresponsible for the universal Church, they are also official witnesses to the faith of their local churches and of the Church at large. They should join in the formulating of solemn dogmatic decrees and also in matters of less importance. They—along with theologians and the sensus fidei of the faithful—should contribute to the statements of the ordinary papal magisterium that are addressed to the entire Church and that bind it in some degree. This should be the case especially when such a statement is intended to prohibit or limit the discussion of controversial questions. In recent years, many bishops have suggested ways to end this papal centralism. Among their recommendations, at least six are very significant: 1. A standing committee of several cardinals and bishops from around the world should adv...

The Church's Inner Renewal [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

The Church's Inner Renewal Pope Francis The Council of Bishops' Conferences of Latin America and the Caribbean in Aparecida considered Pastoral Conversion to be a necessity. This conversion involves believing in the Good News, believing in Jesus Christ as the bearer of Cod's Kingdom as it breaks into the world and in his victorious presence over evil, believing in the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, believing in the Church, the Body of Christ and the prolonging of the dynamism of the incarnation. Consequently, we, as pastors, need to ask questions about the actual state of the churches which we lead. These questions can serve as a guide in examining where the dioceses stand in taking up the spirit of Aparecida; they are questions which we need to keep asking as an examination of conscience. 1. Do we see to it that our work, and that of our priests, is more pastoral than administrative? Who primarily benefits from our efforts, the Church as an organization or the People of Cod ...

Father Brother Friend [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Father Brother Friend Wilton D. Gregory Bishop-Priest Relationships Pope John Paul II appointed Bishop Gregory as the sixth archbishop of the Archdiocese of Atlanta. In November 2001, Archbishop Gregory was elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and during his tenure in office, the crisis of sex abuse by Catholic clergy escalated. Under his leadership, the bishops implemented the "Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People." The human person is designed to be in relationship with others on many different levels. We can all recall the importance of the special relationships in our lives, both those from our past as well as the lifegiving relationships that we currently enjoy today.... PATERNAL/FILIAL When my young priests tell me that they want and expect me to be a father for them —as they often do—l might well have to ask them, according to the standards in which cultural matrix —as Jesus and His Father who are perfectly united in love—or somehow...

Laughing in the Upper Room [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Laughing in the Upper Room Greg Kandra There's an old Yiddish saying: "If you want to hear God laugh, just tell Him your plans." As far as my own life's concerned, these days, I'm sure, He's in stitches. On Saturday, May the 19th, I completed a five-year odyssey and was ordained a permanent deacon for the Diocese of Brooklyn. Suffice it to say: This isn't exactly what I'd planned for my life. It's not exacdy what my wife had in mind when she married me 21 years ago, either. But as John Lennon (British, not Yiddish) put it: Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans. The plans I'd made included a successful career in broadcasting, a nice home, a comfortable life, a happy marriage. To my astonishment, I achieved all that. I'd worked with some of the giants in television—Charles Kuralt, Dan Rather, Ed Bradley—and, by chance or just dumb luck, managed to have a front row seat for some of the defining events of my generation, including the first Gulf War and 9/11. I'd amas...

NAVIGATING the SE [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

NAVIGATING the SE Barbara Quinn Change is a constant. It is also difficult. What parent doesn't know that as they watch children grow seemingly overnight? Businesses and educational institutions are regularly faced with the need to reinvent themselves. Globally, we experience unprecedented paradigm shifts as technologies revolutionize our ways of thinking, the unpredictability of the environment casts the world into chaos, and international economies erupt like volcanoes! This übiquitous tempest of change confronts us with crucial decisions. We can rebel against the inexorable evolution of life or we can muster the courage to embrace transformation as we search for the promise and name the peril that change holds. Such adaptability will exact relinquishment and even pain, but responding to the signs of the times can ultimately bear the seeds of a new and better way. Conviction that new life can emerge as old forms die lies at the heart of the Paschal Mystery revealed and embodied in...

ASONS of CHANGE on a firm foundation. Lay colleagues enthusiastically embraced this partnership while recognizing their need for formation to the essential spirit of Sacred Heart education.

Criteria were articulated for each goal, giving the goals greater specificity and allowing for new emphases as times changed. Two additional elements were built into the process to ensure lay-religious partnership: a collegial process that would involve all constituencies of Sacred Heart schools in learning and living the Goals and Criteria and a process of accountability to ensure that the Goals and Criteria were rea...

Roamin' Collar [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Roamin' Collar Jennifer Willems Multiparish Priests Fr. Ed Vanorny loves celebrating liturgy with his parishioners—even if that means traveling 185 miles to four faith communities every Saturday and Sunday to do it. "I think the Mass I do energizes me all over again to barrel into the next one," says Vanorny, who was ordained for the Diocese of Rapid City, South Dakota, 10 years ago at the age of 53. He has been the pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Gregory, Immaculate Conception Parish in Bonesteel, Sacred Heart Parish in Burke, and St. Anthony Parish in Fairfax for three years. At one time there were 10 priests covering the parishes of Gregory County, which now includes 365 Catholic households in the southeast corner of the diocese. Parishioners were still being served by two priests until Vanorny replaced them, and they continue to adjust to their new pastoral reality. The parish councils and finance councils of two of the parishes have merged, for example, and it is likely that the...

So What is the Role of the Laity, Anyway? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

So What is the Role of the Laity, Anyway? Michael Anthony Novak The earliest Church documents made no mention of the "clergy" and the "laity." Early Christianity was, as a Jewish phenomenon, generally a "lay" movement: with few members coming from the Jewish priestly class. Today we speak of the laity as those who are not ordained as bishop, priest, or deacon within the Church. More generically, the word means a nonspecialist, as in "Explain the medical diagnosis in layman's terms...." To ask what the role of the laity is within the Church, then, seems to result in a predetermined answer: Their role is whatever is left over from the role of the specialists, i.e., the ordained. This is a negative answer, as though saying that the role of the laity is to be non- ordained. In reality, we see lay people in the Church doing a great many things, especially since the explosion of lay ministries after the Second Vatican Council. One of the chief intentions of the bishops at the Council was ...

Pastoral Coresponsibility [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Pastoral Coresponsibility Trusting in the grace of the Spirit which the risen Christ guaranteed to us, we must continue on our way with renewed energy. What paths can we take? In the first place we must renew our efforts for a formation which is more attentive and focused on the vision of the Church, of which I spoke, and this should be both on the part of priests as well as of religious and lay people to understand ever better what this Church is, this People of God in the Body of Christ. At the same time, it is necessary to improve pastoral structures in such a way that the coresponsibility of all the members of the People of God in their entirety is gradually promoted, with respect for vocations and for the respective roles of the consecrated and of lay people. This demands a change in mindset, particularly concerning lay people. They must no longer be viewed as "collaborators" of the clergy but truly recognized as "coresponsible," for the Church's being and action, thereby foste...

CO-WORKERS IN THE VINEYARD [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

CO-WORKERS IN THE VINEYARD All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world. Most do this by working in the secular realm; some do this by working in the Church and focusing on the building of ecclesial communion, which has among its purposes the transformation of the world. Working in the Church is a path of Christian discipleship to be encouraged by the hierarchy. The possibility that lay persons undertake Church ministries can be grounded in Scripture and the teachings of the Church, from St. Paul to the Second Vatican Council and in more recent documents. "Sharing in the function of Christ, priest, prophet, and king, the laity have an active part of their own in the life and activity of the church. Their activity within the church communities is so necessary that without it the apostolate of the pastors will frequently be unable to obtain its full effect" (Apostolicam Actuositatem, n. 10). Today in parishes, schools, Church institutions, and diocesan...

WHO is GALLED to PREACH? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

WHO is GALLED to PREACH? Mary Catherine Hilkert The question of whether women or other lay persons who are gifted with a charism to preach and adequately trained theologically should preach in the liturgical context cannot be separated from the larger questions of who is called to preach in the broader life of the Church and what constitutes the preaching ministry of the Church. Without dismissing the fundamental importance of explicit liturgical proclamation by women, the churches need to claim the many ways in which women and men preach the Gospel today. The preaching of Jesus is the paradigm for all Christian proclamation, and Jesus announced the reign of God in his person and actions as well as in his words. As a lay man in his own religious tradition, Jesus announced the reign of God in ways that were not limited to events of public teaching or preaching, and his preaching rarely took place in a liturgical setting. So, too, in our day it is important to recognize that all of th...

Truth in Action [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Truth in Action Larry Snyder Two thousand years ago, a Jewish carpenter told his friends and followers stories and parables that set forth a call to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, and be the voice of justice. Our Lord made it clear that serving the poor and marginalized is not optional. The world has watched in equal parts amazement and admiration the first months of Pope Francis's papacy. His humility, simplicity, compassion, and solidarity with the poor have struck a chord with both Catholics and non-Catholics alike. In addition to his personal example, his words and teachings have also highlighted the Church's theological belief in the "preferential option for the poor." It is this "preferential option" that inspires the work of Catholic Charities agencies; the work we do is not ancillary to the Church's mission, but at its core. Our work with the poor is not doing good out of a desire to be nice; it is the very heart of our identity as Catholic Christians in action. Pope...

So that they may ALL BE ONE... [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

So that they may ALL BE ONE... Julia and Michael James The Focolare Movement, officially known as Work of Mary, began in 1943 and currently has about 2 million adherents (most of whom are Catholics) in 182 countries. Thirteen years ago, we attended an event called "Faith Communities Together" that featured Imam Warith Deen Mohammed, leader of the Muslim American Society, and Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare Movement, an ecclesial movement in the Catholic Church. In this assembly of 6,000 people, Imam Mohammed and Chiara Lubich interacted with each other in a way that seemed to embody what Jesus meant when he said that people would recognize his disciples by their love for one another. Chiara said, "Our love serves to bring different people together, as you can see today between us: Muslims and Christians." And, calling Chiara a "spiritual mother," Imam Mohammed encouraged his own followers, saying, "I confirm everything that Chiara has said. I see her as a leader for all of us...

Recognizing Young Adults as Gifts in the Church [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Recognizing Young Adults as Gifts in the Church Kevin Ahern This past year I had the privilege of teaching Exploring Catholicism, one of the courses offered to undergraduate students at Boston College to meet their core requirements in theology. As part of the course, I asked the students to go to Mass at a local Catholic parish and write a short reflection paper on their experience. For a number of the students, this was the first time they had ever been to Catholic Mass. For others, it was their first visit since their confirmation. In reading their thoughtful reflections, I was struck by two themes that inform the Church's relationship to young adults. First, most of the student papers reflected a deep desire on the part of students to learn more about religion and spiritual practices. Even for those students who, like many of their peers in the millennial generation, do not identify themselves with any religious tradition there was a real sense of curiosity and interest in Catho...

Multiplicity of Encounters, UNITY OF FAITH [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Multiplicity of Encounters, UNITY OF FAITH Jaisy Joseph With a subtle smile, my aunt looked intently into my eyes as she pressed the small object into the palm of my hand. "Molay [dear child], keep this cross with you. This is who we are. This is the faith of our ancestors." Not larger than a quarter, the golden pendant resembled the crosses that decorated the liturgical space of the SyroMalabar Catholic Church, which I attended every Sunday. As a young elementary school student, I simply accepted the gift from India as a kind gesture from my aunt. Only years later would I understand the historical significance of her words and the theological symbolism of this cross. Known as the Mar Thoma Sliba, which in East Syriac means "the Cross of St. Thomas," these symbols signify the extent to which the Christian faith was inculturated into the fifth-century cultural milieu of the Malabar Coast (present day Kerala, India). 1 Tracing their origins to the apostolic work of St. Thomas the Apos...

Facing Change [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

Facing Change Hosffman Ospino Today's Meet Mo^ern/fhallenges In the past 10 years, we have witnessed the acceleration of a profound demographic shift. Only five decades ago the vast majority of Catholics in the country shared a mostly European American background. Today the U.S. Catholic landscape looks quite different. Approximately 2.7 percent of U.S. Catholics are Asian and Pacific, 3.7 percent are African-American, and the fastest growing group is that of Hispanic Catholics, who already make up 40 percent (possibly more) of the total American Catholic population. It is estimated that in about 15 years half of all U.S. Catholics will be Hispanic. Clearly the Church in the United States is undergoing rapid and profound changes that are already transforming the cultural, social, and religious identity of Catholics. While some are determined to replicate or to hold on to past models of being Church, such attempts will only prevent us from being creative in responding to the challeng...

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to Hispanic ministry. [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2013

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to Hispanic ministry. community and limits the impact of minority leaders' contributions to the larger community. As the number of Hispanic Catholics has been rapidly increasing in the pews, such growth is not equally reflected at all levels of leadership in the Church. In some sectors of our Church there has been a lack of clear commitment to fostering leadership among Hispanic Catholics. This has contributed to the unfortunate perception of the Hispanic presence as merely an addendum or secondary concern. That inadequate attitude, often expressed in tokenism, translates into little or no consultation at the decisive stages of projects that affect the larger Church community, participation in the planning processes that look at the present and future of ministry, and attention to the plurality of voices and experiences that Hispanic Catholics bring to the table. For all of us at times it has been tempting to impose our own ideas about what "sh...
