Fedding the Poor-At a Sacrifice [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014
Fedding the Poor-At a Sacrifice In the first centuries of Christianity the hungry were fed at a personal sacrifice, the naked were clothed, at a personal sacrifice, the homeless were sheltered at personal sacrifice. And because the poor were fed, clothed, and sheltered at a personal sacrifice, the pagans used to say about the Christians “See how they love each other." In our own day the poor are no longer fed, clothed, and sheltered at a personal sacrifice, but at the expense of the taxpayers. And because the poor are no longer fed, clothed and sheltered the pagans say about the Christians “See how they pass the buck." ~ Peter Maurin
Nurturing Justice in a GLOBAL WORLD [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014
Nurturing Justice in a GLOBAL WORLD Carolyn Woo "If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,' but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead." (James 2:15-17) Seven decades ago, a group of Polish refugees from the chaos and tragedy of World War II showed up in the unlikeliest of places—lran. Taken into captivity by the Soviets early in the war and eventually sent to Siberia, they were allowed to leave in 1943 and made a perilous journey to the border. Their plight garnered the attention of Cadiolics in the United States, leading to the formation of an international aid agency called War Relief Services. Why did the Church in the United States do this? Because of the answer Jesus gives in Matthew 22 to the question, “Which commandment in the law is die greatest? ” “You shall love the Lord, your God, with al...

FROM THE C21 CENTER [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
FROM THE C21 CENTER Few would disagree that in the brief time since his election, Pope Francis has given new hope to the Catholic Church worldwide, emphasizing the life-giving message of the Gospel and reaching out anew to those in the margins of society. It was in this spirit that he announced in October 2013 that the following year there would be an extraordinary general assembly of the synod of bishops on the family and evangelization, and that this extraordinary general assembly would be followed by an ordinary general assembly of the synod of bishops in October 2015. The family is the community where Catholics first experience the joy Christ brings to the world. His love surrounds the children through the love and care and affection that parents lavish on their sons and daughters. Today we all know this idyllic “first community” can be disrupted by the attractions and distractions of a fast-paced secular society. This issue of C2l Resources is clearly responding to Pope Francis...

A PLACE FOR EVERYONE: PASTORAL CHALLENGES TO THE FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
A PLACE FOR EVERYONE: PASTORAL CHALLENGES TO THE FAMILY Stephen J. Pope Marriage and family play a central role in the Catholic understanding of the Christian life. Marriage has the status of a sacrament that expresses the unbreakable bond between Christ and the Church. Children are the tangible embodiments of the love of husband and wife. Described as a “domestic church,” the family is the first experience of discipleship for children and an apostolate of love for all. The practices that are shared in a Christian household, my colleague Richard Gaillardetz has argued, provide a necessary foundation for family members’ emotional health, moral and spiritual growth, social commitment, and ecclesial identity. All over the world, the last 50 years have seen massive changes to the family. In American society, the category “family” now includes single parents raising children, unmarried couples with children, adult couples living with elderly parents, and samesex couples raising a child. ...
The PLAN of GOD for MARRIAGE & FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
The PLAN of GOD for MARRIAGE &amp; FAMILY Pope John Paul II The family, which is founded and given life by love, is a community of persons; of husband and wife, of parents and children, of relatives. Its first task is to live with fidelity the reality of communion in a constant effort to develop an authentic community of persons. The inner principle of that task, its permanent power and its final goal is love: without love the family is not a community of persons and, in the same way, without love the family cannot live, grow and perfect itself as a community of persons. What I wrote in the Encyclical Redemptor hominis applies primarily and especially within the family as such: “Man cannot live without love. He remains a being that is incomprehensible for himself, his life is senseless, if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it.” The love between husband and wif...
The Genealogy of Jesus [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
The Genealogy of Jesus Herbert MCCabe, O.P. John, of course, begins his introduction to Jesus with the cosmos itself: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God.” Luke has a narrower but still universalist scope —he traces Christ back to Adam, if you remember. Matthew gets much closer down to earth and puts the family of Jesus in the particular context of the history of Israel; and of course the closer you get down to earth, the earthier you get. One aim of Matthew is to show that Jesus really was tied into the squalid realities of human life and sex and politics.... We start with Abraham, the man of faith, because the whole thing starts with faith and depends on the promise to Abraham—initially the promise of children. Then when Abraham was an old man, Isaac was born “out of due time” in consequence of God’s promise. The faith of Abraham meant that Isaac very nearly had his throat cut by his father at an early age, but he survived to be the father of Jacob, an unscru...
The Pastoral Care of Hispanic Families [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
The Pastoral Care of Hispanic Families In spite of extensive literature on intercultural adjustments and psychosocial development, we still lack a theoretical and conceptual framework for working with newcomers and immigrant families. During my years of study, research, and practice working with immigrant Hispanic families, I have developed the following scheme. It is intended as a frame of reference for the design and development of programs for die pastoral care of these families. Basically, I see the process of transition as involving three separate but interrelated components. 1. The “culture” of the family. An understanding of the functioning of any family requires not only knowledge about the family’s internal structure and processes but also attention to the larger political, governmental, and economic situation that touch family members directly. For this reason, we need to give attention to the “culture” of this family and how that cultural environment shapes the family str...
ALL IN THE FAMILY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2015
ALL IN THE FAMILY Michaela Bruzzese It takes a village to raise a child. This proverb gained pressing relevance for me when my husband and I embarked on our journey of parenthood. Even though my husband was as involved with the care of our infant daughter as I was, it quickly became clear that we were not up to this adventure alone—at least not with our sanity intact. We needed help. We needed a village. Luckily, our family in Santiago, Chile, along with wonderful babysitters, helped us through our firstborn’s infancy and then the birth of her sister. But when we moved to Brooklyn four years ago, that all changed. Despite stellar neighbors and exceptional friends, we struggled with the physical and emotional challenges of parenting our now three young girls full-time.... After three years of swimming upstream just to stay afloat emotionally, financially, and socially, we decided to move back to my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico —in search of a village. The decision to move was ...
