The Catholic Imagination through Story [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

The Catholic Imagination through Story ANDREW GREELEY BEGINS IN the imagination and in stories, but it cannot remain there. The stories that are our first contact with religion ("A decree went out from Caesar that the whole world should be enrolled...") are subject to rational and critical examination as we grow older to discover both what they mean and whether we are still able to believe them. Bethlehem becomes the Incarnation. The empty tomb becomes the Resurrection.... These are all necessary and praiseworthy developments. Nonetheless, the origins and raw power of religion are at the imaginative (that is, experiential and narrative) level both for the individuals and for the tradition. The doctrine of the Incarnation has less appeal to the whole self than the picture of the Madonna and child in a cave.... The doctrine of the Real Presence is less powerful than the image of the final meal in the upper room. None of these doctrines is less true than the stories. Indeed, they have ...

Storytelling and the Sacramental Imagination [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Storytelling and the Sacramental Imagination ALICE MCDERMOTT | HAVE BECOME AWARE in my travels as an "author"—as opposed to my travels as a writer, which all take place at my desk—that many readers are more interested in acquiring a lesson from a serious novel than they are in participating in the "magic" of it, the magic of art. I suspect this is the reason that novelists are more often invited to "give talks" rather than to read from their work. I also suspect this is why the most frequent questions we hear are variations of "what were you trying to say..." or "...is that what you intended?"... I have nothing against hidden meaning, or any kind of meaning. I have been known, in fact, to quote T.S. Eliot's lament to both my students and to my children, "We had the experience but missed the meaning." But I would argue that the experience, the experience of the conjured world, how a novel happens, is primary.... So what then of the idea of the sacramental imagination, or better yet, ...

GOD CAN WORK in STRANGE WAYS [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

GOD CAN WORK in STRANGE WAYS MARY TROXELL 4* Uffe. Mary Troxell, professor of philosophy at Boston College, spoke to students about how God has used her mistakes and failures to bring her closer to Him and bring her to the kind of joy she experiences today. Here’s an excerpt from the Agape Latte talk: l HERE IS NO greater pain than deliberately choosing to do something that you know is going to devastate somebody you love —that was a man I was engaged to be married to, my fiance. He was a graduate student at Catholic University. The reason why things were not quite right from the beginning was because a lot of my impetus to fall in love and get married was misguided. I was 28 at that point. I was in graduate school. I was about to turn 29. There was something that happened to me in my twenties. All my friends started getting married, having babies, buying houses, and here I was —28 years old and living in a dorm. I had no money, husband, children, or car. I was a student. I was itch...

Born third base [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Born third base WILLIAM B. NEENAN, S.J. 4* Utk William B. Neenan, S.J., spoke to the students about some of the lessons he learned in life; he passed away two months later. Here’s an excerpt from the Agape Latte talk: l ’VE LEARNED THAT there’s nothing to be learned from losing a game twice. When you lose once, you learn something. The second time around, you ain’t learned nothing. That’s one thing. The second thing I’ve learned is the longest river in the United States is the Missouri River. Not the Mississippi River, which all of you people that somehow sneaked into Boston College erroneously thinking that the Mississippi River was the longest—you are dead wrong. Google it when you get back to your apartment. So those are two things I’ve learned. The third thing I’ve learned is you were born on third base—all of us. We have people here of a lot of different traditions. Whether you’re Catholic, Jewish, Unitarian, Methodist, Muslim—whatever you are, this has been passed on to you. I...

Becoming a Samebady [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Becoming a Samebady ROBERTO GOIZUETA l HE STORY OF Guadalupe is also the story of an indigenous man, Juan Diego, who at the beginning tells Guadalupe, “I am a nobody.” He literally uses the term “piece of dung” or excrement. “You’re asking me to go to the bishop in Mexico City and tell him to build you a chapel on this hill, Tepeyac?” It sounds crazy to him. “I’m a nobody. Find somebody else.” But, during the series of conversations he has with her, she continually refers to him as “my most beloved Juan Diego, my dear child.” And as a result, he gradually goes from being somebody who experienced himself as having no dignity to, finally, being eager to go to the bishop. “Let me go. I want to go.” Not only that, but at a certain point in the story —when Guadalupe tells him that she needs to see him—he even avoids seeing her because his uncle is sick and he has to go look for a priest to give his uncle the last rites. He tries to sneak around her and, in fact, disobeys her. But that ve...

Reading Into Faith [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Reading Into Faith NICHOLE DEVANEY S ORN AND RAISED in a family of devout Catholics, it seemed only natural that I would grow up to be the same. I’ve attended Catholic school since kindergarten, 13 years and counting. I’ve had all the prayers memorized from an early age, I have always gone to church on Sundays, and I have a Bible on my bookshelf. For my entire childhood, this was pretty much the extent of my faith. I thought being a real Catholic meant simply doing all these things, but never really thought that it could mean something more. I wasn’t an active religious person, but rather a passive bystander who only went through the motions, never putting in anything more than the minimal effort. I was Catholic because my parents were and they raised me according to their beliefs, but at this point in my life I had yet to make those beliefs applicable and significant to my own life. One Christmas morning, I unwrapped a thick, heavy book titled The Christy Miller Collection Volume 1...

Stories That Matter: Faith and Film [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Stories That Matter: Faith and Film THOMAS HIBBS l N TOFKIEN AND Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, at a late stage in Frodo and Sam’s quest to reach Mount Doom and destroy the ring of power, Sam recalls the tales of adventure, “full of darkness and danger,” that they enjoyed hearing as children. These, he says, are the “great stories, the ones that really mattered.” Then Sam asks, “What kind of tale do you think we’ve fallen into?” That’s a good question, not just for self-conscious characters in books and films but for all of us and especially for those of us who believe in a God who is providential author of the whole of creation. Christians have told stories in a wide variety of forms: oral, written, and visual—icons, facades of gothic churches, and more recently in films. Sometimes well-intentioned films made by Christians are artistically and theologically deficient. Indeed, 2014 might be remembered as the year of the bad religious film, with the appearance of didactic films l...

Faith and Film: A Guidebook for Leaders [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Faith and Film: A Guidebook for Leaders The Church is called by Christ to proclaim and explore the Gospel. In every age Christians have used current art forms in this task —from frescoes and carved sarcophagi of the catacombs to the glittering mosaics and stainedglass windows of the cathedrals and the magnificent Renaissance paintings in chapels and homes. In our task of spreading the Good News we still need all the help we can get —and that help could be in the filmmakers who, like the Man from Nazareth, are telling stories that challenge our accepted values and inspire us with new visions. Such films are already drawing those who have not found much challenge or inspiration in sanctuaries, the young adults. It just might be, if we follow them into another place of gathering and ephemeral community, the movie theater, we might connect with more of them than we are currently able to reach. Here's a list of 27 films that can help young people develop "eyes that see and ears that hear...

YOU ARE MADE WORTHY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

YOU ARE MADE WOR THY THERESA O'KEEFE E LIVE BY stories. They shape our daily practices and decisions. But they also communicate something of what we believe makes life valuable, even what makes us valuable. For Christians, our most important stories that tell us of our purpose and profess our worth are found in the Bible. In multiple narratives, God’s deep care for and valuing of God’s creation is echoed. But the Bible is also full of other stories recounting how we humans are reluctant to believe in our deep worth and God’s care. So for millennia Christian believers have needed to repeat the stories that remind us who we are, whose we are, and that we are deeply worthy already. They tell us that our worth and security are not for something that we have done, but for what God has done in and for us. Yet in our world there are many compelling stories that tell us otherwise. They seem so true because everyone is repeating them. It takes time and maturity to recognize which stories to ...

Story of Latina Spirituality [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Story of Latina Spirituality Isabel (third-generation Mexican-American), 33 years old This is a story that my mother told me when I was nine years old. I walked into the kitchen and my mom just seems to have this look of hope in her face. She was going through a really tough time in the family. Mom had a lot of struggles and my dad was, well you know, he was struggling with alcohol, and Mom just had to be extra tough. You know, there were 11 of us in the family. In any case, she told me that she had this dream. She was outside hanging clothes and all of a sudden it was like the sky had just opened up and the clouds had just kind of separated and there was this great light. She could see the Lord and with him were his apostles and it was the most beautiful sight she had ever seen. I've interpreted the story as a sign that there is a light at the end of a tunnel because my mom was, well, she was just down and somehow this dream just reassured her that these tough times were going to p...

Strings of Faith [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Strings of Faith KATHERINE PIER A # \S A TEENAGER I fell into an unhealthy relationship. I could feel this person taking away pieces of myself every time he walked into my home, every time he looked at me, every time he spoke to me. This relationship thrust me into anew reality that included sorrow and uncertainty. Even after it ended, every year seemed to bring new challenges and exposures to a world of death, heartbreak, suffering, and loss. This was not the world I had envisioned. During my freshman year of college, I attempted to find an explanation for this new, harsher world. Surprisingly, the answer that made the most sense to me, and which resonated most closely with the desires of my restless heart, lay intertwined in a compilation of notes, crescendos and dynamic strings presented in “Adagio for Strings” by Samuel Barber. Barber composed this song in 1936, in the midst of the Great Depression and just before the onset of World War 11. This song perfectly seizes the melanch...

MORALITY & STORIH [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

MORALITY & STORIH RUSSELL B. CONNORS JR. AND PATRICK T. MCCORMICK s TORIES ENGAGE US, excite us, entertain us. We feel ourselves drawn into them, sucked in by their undertow and pulled all so willingly into their imaginary worlds. They are, in a very real sense, wonder- ful, for they engage our wonder and imagination in a way that few other things do, and we have loved them since we were very small children. And yet, perhaps because they are so enjoyable, so deliciously pleasurable, we often fail to understand just how important and powerful stories are. Indeed, it is just because stories are so entertaining that we can easily forget how much more than entertainment they really can be. Like the people of Troy who opened their city gates to let in the Greek’s “gift” of a horse, we are often lulled by the playfulness and enchantment of stories, thinking that they are simply children’s toys, little diversions from the serious world of adults But it’s a mistake to take stori...

Story of Latina Spirituality [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Story of Latina Spirituality Sylvia (Mexican-American), 15 years old My mother always tells me that in me I carry the blood of very proud and strong women and that I have a responsibility to develop these qualities in myself. I have the security of throwing on restraint when I need it. My mother says that my great-grandmother Santos's spirit is always around for guidance and comfort. She tells me that all the pride and strength will shine through me for other people to see and use as an example. She says we all make mistakes in life because these are lessons that develop our character. She says that if we were born knowing everything we might as well be dead. She says that there is no shame in making mistakes but it is foolish not to learn from them. She also says that there is nothing in the world that could stop her from loving us. We could commit the most horrible acts and she would still love us. She wouldn't like what we did but her love will last even after she is dead. Select...

Agape Latte. GOD WORKS [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2015

Agape Latte. GOD WORKS WILLIAM P. LEAHY, S.J. William P. Leahy, S.J., president of Boston College, shared with students his faith story so that they could be attentive to their own faith story. Here’s an excerpt from the Agape Latte talk: l T HAS BEEN very helpful for me to reflect on my deepest and most consistent desires. I think in the case of a lot of people that I have known who have made decisions either to be priests, to get married, or to choose a major, it has been very helpful for them to reflect on their deepest and most consistent desires. I am a firm believer that those deep and consistent desires are an invitation from God to consider a way of action. In the Roman Catholic Church, there are two types of priests. There are diocesan priests who primarily work in parishes and there are religious order priests, like the Jesuits, Benedictines, and Franciscans. In my case, for most of my life I had only known diocesan priests. Yet there was this drawing and this interest in ...
