Well.... at least we are ready, in case the Catholic Church ever changes her belief on the sanctity of life and declares an urgent need to hire professional executioners. Who knows what the next Pope will say, right?

Will Pope Francis remove the Vatican’s ‘warning’ from Teilhard de Chardin’s writings?
Image

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the widely influential Jesuit paleontologist and philosopher whose writings were cited with a “warning” by the Vatican in 1962, may finally have that blot removed from his record.

Participants at the recent plenary assembly of the Pontifical Council for Culture that discussed “The future of humanity: new challenges to anthropology” unanimously approved a petition to be sent to Pope Francis requesting him to waive the “monitum” issued by the Holy Office in 1962 regarding the writings of Father de Chardin.

The participants, which included top level scientists as well as cardinals and bishops from Europe, Asia, America and Africa, applauded when the text of the petition was read.

They told Pope Francis that “on several occasions” during their discussions “the seminal thoughts of the Jesuit Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, anthropologist and eminent spiritual thinker, have been evoked.” They said, “we unanimously agreed, albeit some of his writings might be open to constructive criticism, his prophetic vision has been and is inspiring theologians and scientists.” They mentioned that four popes—Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and now Francis—had made “explicit references” to his work.

Teilhard de Chardin was a philosopher, theologian, paleontologist and geologist who took part in the discovery of Peking Man.

For all these reasons, they “respectfully” asked Pope Francis “to consider the possibility of waiving the Monitum that since 1962 has been imposed by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly the Holy Office) on the writings of Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin S.J.” …

Pope: Franciscan "littleness" is a place of encounter
Image

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis met with members of the Franciscan family on Thursday, receiving members of the First Order and of the Third Order Regulars in an audience in the Clementine Hall at the Vatican.

In his address to the Franciscans, the Holy Father emphasized the Order’s proper name, the Order of Friars Minor. The word ‘minor’ is an essential aspect of their religious life, he said; and so that they are not simply religious brothers, but “minor” brothers.

Saint Francis’ inspiration to name his religious brothers “friars minor,” the Pope said, came from his desire to make Christ and the Gospel the foundation of his life. Although not lacking ascetic and social motivations, it comes primarily from a contemplation of Christ, the Son of God, who “though He was rich, made himself poor.” The logic of “spoliation” was literally lived out by St Francis when he stripped himself completely of all earthly goods, in order to give himself entirely to God.

[…]

This typically Franciscan “littleness” [It.: “minorità”], he told the Franciscans, serves them as a place of encounter and communion with God; with their religious brothers and with all men and women; and with all of creation. …

Rehabilitation won’t do much for Teilhard, but symbolically it matters
Image

… Last Saturday, a large majority of the assembly of the Council for Culture voted to recommend that Francis revoke a monitum, or official warning, imposed on Teilhard’s work by the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office, the forerunner to today’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in 1962.

That monitum was reaffirmed by the Vatican in 1981, on the 100th anniversary of Teilhard’s birth.

[…]

To be honest, to the extent that Teilhard’s reputation needed rehabilitation, it already happened a long time ago.

In 1966, just four years after the monitum, Blessed Pope Paul VI delivered a speech in which he said Teilhard was a scientist who “scrutinizing the material, knew how to find the spiritual,” and who had offered “an explanation of the universe capable of revealing the presence of God in it, the traces of an intelligent principle and creator.”

[…]

In all honesty, Teilhard’s problem with officialdom was never really his own work so much as the uses to which it was put.

In a long-ago commentary on the final session of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), a young Father Joseph Ratzinger, who would later become Pope Benedict, complained that Gaudium et Spes, the “Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World,” played down the reality of sin because of an overly “French,” and specifically “Teilhardian,” influence.

[…]

None of that, however, really ever diminished the esteem in which Teilhard has been held by many in senior positions in the Church.

[…]

As a result, should Francis take up the recommendation to officially lift the 1962 monitum on Teilhard, it probably won’t mean much in terms of how widely read and studied his writings actually are in Catholic circles.

Nonetheless, it could have important symbolic value.

It could make a statement, perhaps, about how the Church, despite its understandable caution about protecting the deposit of faith, eventually does justice to the thinkers who serve it. It could also make a statement of openness to the world of science, and would doubtless be appreciated by scientists who’ve always thought of Teilhard as one of them. …

Closing doors: Small religious colleges struggle for survival

SHAWNEE, Oklahoma - Duncan Tiemeyer chose St. Gregory’s University because he wanted a faith-based education that would teach him more than how to succeed in a career.

The 550-student Catholic liberal arts college in Oklahoma traces its roots to French monks who moved to Indian Territory in 1875, intent on developing the bodies, minds and souls of Native American and settler children.

“Here, we are taught not only to focus on our five-year plan but also our 100-year plan and our 500-year plan,” said Tiemeyer, 22, a senior business and theology major from Houston. “What are we preparing for? Are we living our lives in a way that is getting us to the next life? Are we going to be able to go to heaven?”

However, the brand of education offered by St. Gregory’s - where Benedictine monks still pray multiple times daily in a chapel beside a cemetery filled with the remains of their predecessors - will come to an abrupt halt at the fall semester’s end.

“It’s just a tragic and sad loss, and I’m grieving for our students and faculty and staff who are working through this loss,” said St. Gregory’s President Michael A. Scaperlanda.

The financially strapped Roman Catholic institution, 40 miles east of Oklahoma City, is just the latest small religious college to close in an increasingly competitive higher education marketplace.
  • Grace University, a Christian college in Omaha, Neb., will end operations in May, doomed by financial and enrollment challenges.
  • Marygrove College, a Catholic liberal arts institution in Detroit, will shut down its undergraduate programs in December.
  • Catholic-affiliated Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind., did not reopen this fall.

“The transition from a mom-and-pop shop to a niche boutique has been difficult for many colleges,” Scaperlanda said. “In the pre-Wal-Mart world, mom-and-pop shops could survive and thrive. In the Wal-Mart world, you need to have a niche market and very sophisticated business practices, and I think that has been difficult for many small Christian universities, including St. Gregory’s.” …

Potential Italian saint could be key footnote to Francis’s legacy
Image
Don Luigi Sturzo. (Credit: Stock image.)

… As a result, it’s tempting to style Sturzo as a classic “Pope Francis before his time” sort of candidate. On the other hand, in many ways it’s the differences between Sturzo and Francis, not the similarities, which are most intriguing.

For one thing, Francis repeatedly has called on priests to stay out of politics, by which he means avoiding becoming directly partisan and instead maintaining (often ambivalent) relationships with all political players. …

[…]

Sturzo, on the other hand, was the dictionary definition of partisanship, the founder and leader of a political party. …

[…]

For another thing, Francis notoriously dislikes abstract humanitarianism, rooted in theory and ideologies rather than concrete action. Sturzo, on the other hand, was very much a man of ideas.

He didn’t work in soup kitchens or minister in refugee camps or hospices (except during his own hospitalization in Florida, when he worked with fellow clergy who were sick.) Instead, Sturzo stayed at his desk and wrote. …

[…]

In that sense, should Francis be the one who ends up declaring Sturzo a saint, one could see it less as an exclamation point on Francis’s vision than an important footnote to it.

In effect, it would be a way of saying that while the ideals of Catholic social teaching remain constant, the right way for any given Catholic to advance those ideals will depend on the circumstances, the particular gifts of that individual, and prudential judgments about what the times demand. It would also reaffirm that Catholicism is the quintessential both/and tradition, in which ideas and action aren’t rivals but partners.

Given Francis’s well-known inclination to pack big moves into small footnotes, perhaps that aspect of Sturzo’s cause may catch his fancy too.

Pope to bishops on annulment reforms: “Do your jobs!”
Image

… Always, Francis said, the diocesan bishop is the Iudex unum et idem cum Vicario iudiciali, a Latin phrase from canon law that means the “one and the same judge, with the judicial vicar.”

“But since that principle is being interpreted in a manner which, de facto, excludes the personal exercise [of that responsibility] by the diocesan bishop, delegating almost everything to the tribunals,” Francis said he was establishing certain rules he sees as “determining and exclusive”:

  1. “The diocesan bishop, in force of his pastoral office, is the lone and personal judge for the expedited process.”
  2. “Thus, the figure of the diocesan bishop-judge is the architrave, the constitutive principle and the discriminating element, of the entire expedited process instituted by the two motu proprio.” (In classical architecture, an “architrave” is the main beam resting atop a series of columns, which often supports the weight of the entire structure.)
  3. “For the expedited process to be valid, two essential conditions are required: The episcopate, and being the head of a diocesan community of faithful. If one of those two conditions is missing, the expedited process can’t happen and the case must be judged with the ordinary process.”
  4. “The exclusive and personal competence of the diocesan bishop, placed among the fundamental criteria for the expedited process, makes direct reference to the ecclesiology of Vatican II, which recalled that only the bishop, in his consecration, already has the fullness of all power that’s ad actum expedita (ready to be put into action), through the missio canonica (canonical mission).”
  5. “The expedited process is not an option that the diocesan bishop may choose, but a duty that belongs to him through his consecration and from the missio he received.”

If a bishop doesn’t have any clergy or laity with the necessary legal expertise to provide the guidance he needs, Francis said, then a neighboring bishop should step in to help “for as long as necessary.”

The pontiff wasn’t backing off his core message: “The decision to pronounce [a ruling] coram Domino (in the presence of the Lord) is always, and only, one of the diocesan bishop,” he said.

That’s a responsibility, Francis said, a bishop simply can’t shirk.

“To entrust the entire expedited process to an inter-diocesan tribunal (either in a neighboring diocese, or one operated by several dioceses) could distort the figure of the bishop as father, head and judge of his faithful, reducing it to a mere signing of a sentence,” he said.…

Pope Francis Warns About 'Terrorism of Gossip'
Image
Pope Francis is flanked by Bangladeshi officials and security guards as he walks to the airplane before his departure from the airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017.

Pope Francis talked to a group of Bangladeshi priests and nuns about the "terrorism of gossip" and how it can destroy religious communities on Saturday, before returning to the Vatican.

The leader of the world's Roman Catholics spoke from his heart to the crowd at Dhaka's Holy Rosary Church.

He abandoned the speech he had prepared and instead gave a spontaneous 15-minute address about the highs and lows of living in a religious community.

In the laughter-filled monologue, he urged his audience to tend to their religious vocations "with tenderness" and warned them about the havoc gossip "bombs" can wreak when detonated in a closed religious life.

Francis said he was speaking from personal experience and urged the nuns and priests to "Please, bite your tongue" which means to consider your words carefully before speaking. …

BEDFORD, Ohio - Sister Helen Scasny studied the wall of glass-enclosed cases stretching from floor to ceiling inside the entrance of Light of Hearts Villa, a senior care center in Bedford.

Almost 900 angel figurines of various ages, sizes and materials crowded well-lit shelves, but Scasny wouldn’t choose a favorite among them.

“My favorite is sitting at my bedside in Bertha,” Scasny said of the guardian angel she named years ago. “I say goodnight to Bertha. I thank her for keeping me upright. I haven’t fallen!”

The senior care facility welcomes the public to check out its angel display all year-round, but Christmas angels come out of storage to take a prominent spot during Advent. …

First Things' Matthew Schmitz needs church history lesson
Image
Pope Pius X, pictured in an undated photo (CNS)

…The antidote to becoming a slave to the ideologies of the world is not to fashion an ideology of the church. That is just a different, more sophisticated, golden calf. The Catholic antidote to all ideologies is membership in the church, the people of God in relationship with each other because of their shared relationship to the God revealed in Jesus Christ — and still being revealed in Jesus Christ today. It is communal and it is personal. It is ever developing because at its heart is the Risen One who is still alive and active. It is filled with grace yet marked by sin. It requires codification at the same time as it resists codification.

To borrow a metaphor from von Balthasar, like the apostle John, the apostle of love, who runs ahead of Peter, the apostle of authority, and reaches the empty tomb first, the church at its most evangelical is constantly running ahead in love to its source of faith, the Risen Christ, discerned most readily in the Eucharist and in the poor. The church, as Pope Francis likes to say, must recognize that Christ is still trying to take on flesh in our own time, in every age.

I regret that many converts in the past thirty years thought they were signing up for a version of Catholicism that they were told was eternal but was only a moment in time. (I note, too, that there are many, many converts who love this pope.) I regret no one told them that the ideological encrustations certain conservative Catholics claimed were irreformable were necessarily subject to reform because the church is alive in history, not dead in ideology. Their mentors in the faith imparted a faux-infallibility not merely to the teachings of one pope, but to a particular, and particularly narrow, interpretation of those teachings. Now that they have become Catholic, they resent that the church is changing and behave as spoiled little children who have had their toys taken from them. It is sad for them, and their mentors have much for which to answer. …

Pope Francis' prayer to Mary on the Immaculate Conception
Image
Pope Francis prays in front of the statue of the Virgin Mary during the annual feast of the Immaculate Conception at Piazza di Spagna in Rome - AFP

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis made his annual visit to Rome's Spanish Square on Friday to pray at the foot of the column and statue of the Immaculate Conception.

A litany of present-day viruses and their corresponding antibodies: this was at the heart of Pope Francis’ prayer, offered to Our Lady on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, when he visited Rome’s Piazza di Spagna on Friday afternoon.

Dogma of the Immaculate Conception

The Pope recited the prayer before the column and statue of Mary, dedicated in 1857 to mark the dogma of the Immaculate Conception which had been defined by Pope Pius IX three years earlier. The dogma teaches that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the moment of her conception, by a special grace of God, was preserved from all stain of original sin.

Mary accompanies us on our journey

The text of the prayer begins by thanking Our Lady for accompanying different categories of humanity of their respective journeys: families, religious, workers, the sick, the elderly, the poor, and those who have immigrated to Rome “from places where there is war and hunger”.

Viruses of our time


The Pope then goes on to identify a series of what he calls “viruses of our times”, which range from indifference to fear of the foreigner, from hypocrisy to the exploitation of others. These must be combatted, said Pope Francis, with the “antibodies that come from the Gospel”.

Here is the full translated text of the prayer:
