Crisis Management in the Church [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Crisis Management in the Church BY FREDERICK W. GLUCK The Catholic Church in the United States is going through the greatest crisis in its history. Dealing with crises is not a problem unique to Church leaders; it is a task faced by leaders of any complex organization. When faced with a crisis, U.S. corporate leaders often bring in a firm like McKinsey & Company to help them think through their situation and construct a meaningful program for change. The consultants—working closely with management —analyze the causes of the crisis, both internal (like inadequate personnel, mismanagement, misallocation of resources, not keeping up with technological improvements, or a dysfunctional corporate culture) and external (aggressive competition, for example, changes in consumer preferences, or a decline in the company's reputation). They then jointly develop strategies and programs to respond to the crisis so that the company can prosper. While at McKinsey, I often advised corpor...

True and False Reform [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

True and False Reform BY AVERY CARDINAL DULLES The long experience of the Catholic Church has included many seasons of decline and renewal. Throughout the centuries the Church has striven, by preaching and exhortation, to help individual Christians reform their lives. At various times, reformers have arisen to make the consecrated life a more authentic school of perfection. One thinks in this connection of the Cistercians and Trappists as reformed branches of the Benedictine order, and of the Discalced Carmelites, who conducted a thoroughgoing reform of their order in 16th-century Spain. The universal Church likewise has undertaken major institutional refonns; for example, the Gregorian Reform of the eleventh century, which imposed stricter discipline on the clergy and secured the independence of the Church from secular control. At many times in her history, the C h u rch has been threatened by false reforms that, if accepted, would have d en a tu redher. Such re 112 o rms were atte...

Task for the Next Church Council [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Task for the Next Church Council BY RAYMOND G. HELMICK Have we a new Council ! of the Church in our near future? When Pope John XXIII an- | swered that question affirmatively back in 1959, the rather sclerotic Catholic Church of the time faced a broadening crisis of relevancy, but nothing like the catastrophe we have experienced since January 2002. As we discovered how widespread was the crisis of child sexual abuse by priests, how long a time it had been going on, and how Church leaders had concealed it, we entered a devastating period of collapsing trust and fierce recrimination. We have urgent questions about whether the bishops, whose actions horrify us even more than those of the pederasts, will be held accountable in any credible way. That is terribly disillusioning for all who wish to have confidence in the Church as an institutional structure through which to live their faith. Accountability, which seems an ultimate redline question for the Roman authorities, constitutes a q...

Information Deficit [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Information Deficit BY ANDREW GREELEY Why the Church's hierarchy isn't working Despite the fax machines and computers übiquitous today in offices of the Roman curia, the institutional organization of the Vatican has not changed appreciably since the late eighteenth century. Perhaps the organization of the Vatican worked well enough one hundred fifty years ago. Yet the Church stretches to the ends of the earth and is now responsible for the religious life of at least 1.2 billion people in a world of jet transportation and almost instant communication. Moreover, the modest reforms of Vatican II quite unintentionally destabilized the structures (what sociologists call behavior patterns and the supporting motivations) of the Church and thus diminished the credibility of its lead- ership. Any attempt to govern with the same style that was effective in 1850 would be like the United States trying to return to the presidential style of Theodore Roosevelt, who used to sit in a rocking chair ...

Open Questions on the Roman Collar [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Open Questions on the Roman Collar BY THOMAS H. GROOME Celibacy and the ordination of women should be central to the debate over the future of the Catholic priesthood In a communique from Rome following their meeting last month, the U.S. cardinals and episcopal leaders said that because "a link between pedophilia and celibacy cannot be scientifically maintained" they would remove priestly celibacy from the discussion. Those who hope for a systemic overhaul of priestly ministry know that when celibacy is taken off the table, the same surely follows for women's ordination. It's likely true that there is no cause-and-ef&ct correlation between celibacy and pedophilia, strictly defined as attraction to prepubescent children. But how about the sexual abuse of adolescents by celibate priests? Many of the older priests now accused of such ephebophilia entered through the minor seminary system and began to attempt celibacy in their early teens, with adolescent hormones in top gea...

Reviving a Parish Culture [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Reviving a Parish Culture BY PAUL WILKES A new pastor brings a congregation back to a vibrant, collaborative life A year and a half ago, when a new pastor was assigned to our parish, we, the Catholic remnants, held our collective breath. We had a stunningly beautiful parish Church and equally stunning was how dysfunctional we had become as a parish body. After years of a distant, autocratic pastor who, beneath all his surface coolness, had the parish's best interests at heart and one-on-one could be an effective spiritual counselor, we were sent a distant, autocratic man who quickly proved he had neither talent. By the time he was unceremoniously removed from the parish, not only had numbers plummeted at weekend liturgies and parish committees virtually imploded because of his imperious, erratic ways, but we had discovered that we were on the verge of insolvency because of his profligate spending on staff he had added, furniture he had purchased, and personal expenses incurted. The ...

The Real Agenda [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

The Real Agenda BY ROBERT M. ROWDEN St. John Chrysostom once warned: "Whoever is not angry when there is cause for anger sins." The 25 Catholics who gathered in the basement of St. John the Evangelist Church in Wellesley, Mass. on a Monday night in January 2002 were angry indeed —angry and embarrassed because of the sexual abuse of so many children by priestpredators in their own archdiocese, but angry especially because incidents of abuse had been kept secret by archdiocesan leaders for whom concealment appeared to be the number one priority, while known predators were transferred from parish to unsuspecting parish. Any financial settlements with victims were made in secret and were often contingent upon maintaining secrecy. The scandal and its extent were documented in The Boston Globe, and soon all were reminded that clergy sexual abuse had infected the Church in many dioceses in the United States and in many nations. By spring, crowds had swelled to 700. In July 2002, a conventi...

The Hour of the Laity [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

The Hour of the Laity BY MARY ANN GLENDON Let us not neglect the apostolates for lay Catholics we already have Th roughout the twentieth century leaders of the Catholic Church implored lay men and women with increasing urgency to be more active as Catholics in society, and —since Vatican ll—to become more involved j in the internal affairs of the Church. The earlier call found a warm response among Catholic Americans in the 1930'5, 40's and 50's. But as Catholics gained in affluence and influence, the lay apostolate has suf- j fered, while new opportunities for service in the institutional Church have gone begging. No wonder that John Paul 11, with his history of close collaboration with lay men and women, often refers to the laity as a "sleeping giant." For decades, the giant has seemed lost in the deep j slumber of an adolescent. Now that the sleeper is beginning to stir — roused by media coverage of clerical sexual misconduct—it is beginning to look as though the Leviathan has th...

Priscilla and Aquila Set Out Again [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Priscilla and Aquila Set Out Again BY ROBERT P. MALONEY A profile of the lay Catholic in the 21st century W'e who live today in a notably hierarchical Church do not always find it easy to appreciate the important role of lay people in the early Church, especially of women, even though we have heard about it repeatedly in the readings at Mass on Sundays. How often do we recall Tabitha, whose life "was marked by constant good deeds and acts of charity" (Acts 9:36)? I suspect that hardly anybody ever thinks of Phoebe, whom Paul describes as a deaconess and whom he praises for having been of such great help to so many, including himself (Rom 16:1-3). Though just about everyone recognizes Mary Magdalen's name, how often do we note that in John's Gospel the first evangelizer is not Peter, nor John, nor any of the Apostles, but Mary Magdalen herself, who proclaims to the Apostles: "I have seen the Lord" (Jn 20:18). The New Testament mentions many other lay men and women, most of whom have ...

The Vanishing Eucharist [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

The Vanishing Eucharist BY WILLARD F. JABUSCH By now it is clear to anyone interested in the Catholic Church that there are no longer enough priests to celebrate Mass in many parishes. In rural areas and in the poorer neighborhoods of the great cities, parishes are being closed not only for economic reasons, but also because priests cannot be found to serve as pastors. The great religious orders, Franciscans, Jesuits, Redemptorists, and Benedictines, are handing over to local bishops parishes they have staffed for decades. Some say that their "charism" no longer includes parish work. Others bluntly admit that they just do not have the men. On both sides of the Atlantic, lay people, frequently women, now preside at prayer services on Sundays. In place of the Mass, which had been offered weekly and even daily for many years, there are now some Bible readings, a few hymns, and possibly a homily and distribution of previously consecrated Communion hosts. Many loyal Catholics are astonis...

Scratching the Stained-Glass Ceiling [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Scratching the Stained-Glass Ceiling BY RENEE M. LAREAU A look at gifts brought and challenges faced hy the Church's women leaders It is lunch time on a Thursday, and Sharon Daly, vice president for social policy at Catholic Charities USA, talks hurriedly on her cell phone, the buzzing chaos of Washington's Union Station in the background. Daly, the first woman to occupy this position, squeezes a phone interview in between legislative meetings on Capitol Hill, with the future funding of programs like Section 8 housing and Head Start at the forefront of her mind. A 2 5-year veteran in the field of legislative advocacy, Daly recalls feeling a little out of place at the 1984 bishops' meeting, the first she attended during her tenure in the public policy arm of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). "There were hardly any women there. I just remember looking out into this sea of 300 white heads and gold chains," she says with a laugh. Despite her minority experience, ...

What Women Want [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

What Women Want BY CATHLEEN KAVENY 'Bufly,' the pope and the new feminists In his 1995 Letter to Women, Pope John Paul II calls for a dialogue about the situation and challenges facing women. He addresses himself to all women, not just those who are Catholic, and still less to that subset of Catholic women who agree with his formulation of a "new feminism." The pope's feminism celebrates the advances women have made in the economic and political spheres even as it promotes traditional ideas about the nature and vocation of women, which are rooted in his conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the perfect exemplar of the "feminine genius" so desperately needed to humanize the world today. The pope's tone is not crabby and defensive, but open-minded and appreciative. In fact, the letter begins with a litany of gratitude to and for women who occupy a wide variety of roles in their families, their communities, and the world. Who would be a good dialogue partner, within the context of A...

The Future Church: A Demographic Revolution [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

The Future Church: A Demographic Revolution BY JOSEPH CLAUDE HARRIS Peter Drucker, writing in the Nov. 3, 2001 issue of The Economist, described a revolution that will cause a restructuring of European and American economies and cultures for much of this century. "In the developed countries, the dominant factor in the next society will be something to which most people are only just beginning to pay attention: the rapid growth in the older population and the rapid shrinking of the younger generation." j In every developed country and in China and Brazil, the number of births has fallen well below the replacement number required for any population to remain stable: 2.2 births per woman of reproductive age. As a result, immigration will become potentially divisive in all rich countries as businesses seek workers to augment a shrinking number of native employees. A current and pending movement of millions of Muslims into Europe and a burgeoning Hispanic population in the United States ...

Architects of Success [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Architects of Success BY KENNETH G. DAVIS The promise of young Hispanic Catholic leadership Although parents may well attend whatever Church makes their children feel most welcome, young . people are not as likely to attend a Church simply because it appeals to their parents. Win over the youth and perhaps win the whole family. If this anecdote is reasonable, the future of the Catholic Church in the United States is being constructed by young Hispanics. The latest census reports that 35.7 percent of all Hispanics in the United j States are less than 18 years old, compared to 23.5 percent of nonHispanic whites. And while the popu- j lation of Hispanic youth is expected to boom in the next 20 years, the non-Hispanic white youth population is expected to decline. This increase among Hispanics will account for most of the youth population growth over the next two decades. In its Exploratory Study on the Status of Hispanic Youth and Young Adult Ministry in the U.S., the Instituto Fey Vid...

Will Church Finances Be the Next Scandal? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2004

Will Church Finances Be the Next Scandal? BY DAVID GIBSON Changing how funds are accounted for The release this year of the survey quantifying a half-century of clergy sexual abuse of minors reinforces the fact that j the scandal has two interconnected natures —one sexual, the other financial. The overall price tag on the debacle is disputed, but responsible estimates suggest that it is at least approximately $750 million, if one includes the settlement reached recently by the Archdiocese of Boston. ! Whatever the actual tally, American Catholics for the past two years have often focused their fury on the enormous amount of money, much of it supplied by lay people, paid out j to cover up cases of abuse. This is not to say that Catholics care more about money than about clerical sexual abuse. Rather, the fact is that aside from donating money, Catholics feel virtually powerless to affect the course of events within their Church, and the scandal revealed that those donations had been ...
