Bishop issues new norms for receiving Holy Communion

Diocese prepares for Our Lady of Guadalupe celebration

Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted has issued new norms for the distribution of Holy Communion in the Diocese of Phoenix. Promulgated by the bishop on Nov. 7, these new guidelines entrust to parish pastors the decision to make available to the faithful Communion under both kinds. The new norms for the Diocese of Phoenix are intended to promote greater reverence for the Blessed Sacrament. They are based on three Church documents that provide guidance for celebrating Mass: the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Redemptionis Sacramentum, and “The Norms for the Distribution and Reception of Holy Communion Under Both Kinds in the Dioceses of the USA.” Previously, The Catholic Sun had reported that the norms, which were incomplete at the time, would restrict the availability of the Precious Blood to a limited number of occasions, such as certain feast days, retreats or special celebrations. What the norms state is that the distribution of Communion under both kinds will be based on eight conditions. Evaluating whether these conditions are met — and whether the Precious Blood may be offered at Mass — is at the discretion of the parish pastor or a priest chaplain to whom a community has been entrusted. “The question was whether the new General Instruction of the Roman Missal was restricting

Organizers are expecting thousands of local Catholics to participate in the sixth annual “Honor Your Mother” celebration Dec. 3 in downtown Phoenix.

Armando Ruiz, who has been involved with the Honor Your Mother event since its inception, said it’s a way of honoring the human dignity of every person. “She gave a road map on how these two cultures could create Church in America,” Ruiz said. Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted will preside along with concelebrating priests. Fr. Eric Tellez, pastor of St. Patrick Parish, will be the homilist. ✴

Thousands converge for dual rosary celebrations in Arizona

Archbishop of the Military celebrates Veterans Day Mass

Organizers of Phoenix’s longstanding Rosary Sunday tradition repeated not just the prayers, but the program in its entirety. The result: some 7,500 faithful gathered for the first Arizona Rosary Celebration Oct. 15-16. More than 1,500 of them gathered in Tucson Oct. 15 and some 6,000 at Phoenix’s Convention Center Oct. 16. This year’s celebration honored Mary under her title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Phoenix Diocese and patroness of the Americas.

SCOTTSDALE — Archbishop Timothy B. Broglio of the U.S. Archdiocese of Military Services gave the homily at the first local Red, White and Blue Veterans Day Mass Nov. 11 at St. Maria Goretti. The Mass honored men and women who have served the country in any conflict or in times of peace. ▶ For the full story:

National director visits local 40 Days for Life vigils The co-founder of the national 40 Days for Life prayer and fasting campaign visited local campaign sites across Arizona during the fall vigil. Shawn Carney, who started the campaign in 2004 and brought it to the national stage in 2007, visited abortion sites in Glendale, Prescott and Flagstaff. Pro-lifers from various faiths gathered outside in prayer to hear his words of inspiration and gratitude. Carney told dozens who gathered outside of Planned Parenthood’s Glendale location Oct. 27 at lunchtime to start expecting their vigilance to affect clinic staff. “By the third or fourth week, they stop thinking about you and start thinking about what they’re doing there,” Carney said. “They are losing the battle on a local level, especially in Arizona.” A court of appeals found abortion restrictions to be reasonable and constitutional in August. That meant Planned Parenthood would only provide surgical abortions at its Glendale, Tempe and Tucson locations.

Phoenix seminarian advances toward priesthood By Ambria Hammel The Catholic Sun


ESA — The Diocese of Phoenix seminarian scheduled for ordination next year took the final formal step toward priesthood last month. Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted ordained Dan Vanyo a transitional deacon Oct. 15 at his home parish of Holy Cross. He immediately assumed diaconate duties during his ordination Mass and the Sunday liturgy. Similar responsibilities awaited him when he returned to St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver. He delivered a homily during daily Mass and baptized babies at a nearby parish where he’s been serving his apostolate. “What’s in my heart is, ‘OK, it’s time to go to work,’” Deacon Vanyo told The Catholic Sun. “I have a sense that something was completed. It’s very subtle, but I know it’s there. The Holy Spirit works quietly. There’s a quietness in the subtlety.” Deacon Vanyo took his first vows of prayer and celibacy and renewed his vow of obedience during the ordination rite.

Campaign calling Catholics back to Church goes national ▶ Continued from page 1

a nationwide campaign to take place for years. “There’s great joy in bringing this message to all 200 dioceses, all the many thousands of parishes and 250 million viewers who will soon see the good news about the history, beauty, spirituality and accomplishments of the Catholic Church that Jesus Himself founded 2,000 years ago,” Peterson said. Ryan Hanning, coordinator of adult evangelization for the Diocese of Phoenix, first began working with Peterson in 2007 and helped develop the catechetical content of the program. He also worked with parishes in their outreach to fallen-away Catholics. The 2008 Catholics Come Home Campaign was a “huge success,” Hanning said. Since then, the campaign has run in 30 other dioceses across the country, encouraging 300,000 Catholics to return to the Church. Mass attendance increases 10 percent in areas where the spots have run. Hanning pointed to statistics from the Pew Forum for Religious and Public Life, 2008, that indicate most people who leave the Catholic Church simply drift away. “It’s very important to note that 90 percent of Catholics who have left the faith — that’s 29 million inactive Catholics in the United

States — have left for non-doctrinal reasons,” Hanning said. “Most of them aren’t angry with the faith. They haven’t left over any particular teaching of the faith — they simply don’t know the faith and haven’t had an opportunity to fall back in love with Christ or experience Christ’s love in the Church.” Those who have fallen away, Hanning said, “are just waiting to be invited back, yet most active Catholics are afraid of sharing the

faith because they have the impression most people have left for good reasons. “But that’s just simply not the case,” Hanning said. “The vast majority of them have left the faith because they’ve been caught up in a culture that doesn’t respect the role of religion.” The Catholics Come Home campaign not only invites people to return to the Church, it also motivates active Catholics to share the faith. The Catholics Come Home spots,

which will air more than 400 times during a three-week period, will be shown on a broad range of stations during popular programming such as 60 Minutes, Jay Leno, The O’Reilly Factor, major sports and highly rated sitcoms. “Paul VI said the Church exists to evangelize,” Hanning said. “This commercial campaign is just one way in which we’re able to do that very effectively.” Viewers from the Diocese of

Phoenix may recognize local scenes in the commercial such as Immaculate Heart Parish, St. Mary’s Basilica, St. Francis Xavier Parish, the All Saints Catholic Newman Center, Papago Park and the Phoenix Zoo. Fr. Fred Adamson, vicar general and moderator of the Curia, along with local deacons and members of a youth group, are also featured. Peterson said the campaign is spreading to other countries such as Australia and Mexico. When the spot first aired in the Archdiocese of Chicago, he said, the impact was felt as far away as Poland. “Millions of viewers in Poland saw our broadcasts from the Polish channels that were airing in Chicago but that also went worldwide,” Peterson said. “So you can see what started as a prayerful effort of the New Evangelization in the Diocese of Phoenix is going nationwide and has already, to a certain extent, started penetrating the world.” The spots were also filmed in Spanish and will be aired on Univision. Fr. John Muir, assistant director of the Office of Worship for the Diocese of Phoenix and assistant director at ASU’s Newman Center, appears in the Spanish version. “It’s an amazing partnership between Phoenix and Catholics Come Home,” Hanning said. “We’re so honored to have been a part of it and participate in it.” ✴

Norms for Holy Communion set parameters for reception under both kinds ▶ Continued from page 1

when the chalice was offered, or whether it was expansive,” said Fr. Kieran Kleczewski, executive director of the Office of Worship. In preparing the new guidelines for Communion, the bishop and the Office of Worship determined that the General Instruction of the Roman Missal sought to expand and normalize the occasions for when the Precious Blood could be offered. “This discussion has served as a reminder to us of the need to safeguard the Eucharist,” Fr. Kleczewski said. “It calls us to a renewed catechesis of what we receive at every Mass.” Conditions for distribution In this issue of The Catholic Sun, Bishop Olmsted devotes his monthly column to the new norms and the conditions found therein. Among the conditions, the new norms call for the faithful to be properly catechized on the reality of the Eucharist. Additionally, if both kinds are offered, priests and deacons must be able to purify all the sacred vessels during or immediately after the conclusion of Mass. If the Precious Blood is to be offered, the norms dictate there cannot exist any danger of it being profaned.

Read Bishop Olmsted’s column on the new norms for distribution of Holy Communion: Page 20


“Profanation does not only mean that the sacred species is intentionally abused or mistreated,” the bishop wrote, “but that it is merely treated as ordinary food and drink, rather than what it truly is, the Body and Blood of Christ.” A large number of communicants could make it difficult to gauge the amount of wine to be consecrated. Pastors should be cautious so that more than a reason-

able quantity of the Precious Blood does not remain after distribution. There should also be an adequate number of ordinary ministers of the Eucharist. If not, there should be an adequate number of “properly deputed and trained” extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist. That said, the number of extraordinary ministers should not obscure the role of the priest and deacon. Pastors should also con-

sider health concerns, such as influenza or other contagious diseases, which might deter the faithful from approaching the chalice. Also, following the Holy See’s instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum, pastors should take note when a sizable portion of the faithful prefers not to receive from the chalice. That circumstance is to be avoided because “the sign of unity would in some sense be negated.”

“The reality is that there’s going to be a variance in practice of when the chalice is offered,” Fr. Kleczewski said. “No two parishes are the same.” Nonetheless, the norms permit pastors to provide for the reception of Christ under the outward form of wine for those who cannot receive the consecrated host for medical or health reasons, like gluten allergies. ✴

Text of ‘Norms for the Distribution and Reception of Holy Communion under Both Kinds’ Following is the text of the norms for Holy Communion as promulgated by Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted on Nov. 7:


ccording to the GIRM, 283: “The Diocesan Bishop may establish norms for Holy Communion under both kinds for his own diocese, which are also to be observed in churches of religious and at celebrations with small groups. The Diocesan Bishop is also given the faculty to permit Communion under both kinds whenever it may seem appropriate to the priest to whom, as its own shepherd, a community has been entrusted, provided that the faithful have been well instructed and there is no danger of profanation of the Sacrament or of the rite’s becoming difficult because of the large number of participants or some other reason.” I. Local norms for the Diocese of Phoenix for the Distribution and Reception of Holy Communion under both kinds A. In the Diocese of Phoenix, Holy Communion under both kinds may be offered to all the faithful in the following instances whenever it seems appropriate to the priest to whom a given community is entrusted, provided that the conditions listed are met.

B. Conditions for the use of Holy Communion under both kinds: i. The faithful present at Mass are properly catechized and continually receive catechesis regarding the dogmatic principles on the matter laid down by the Ecumenical Council of Trent. ii. The ordinary ministers (i.e., priests and deacons) are able to purify all the sacred vessels either during or immediately following Dismissal of the people at the conclusion of the Mass.

iv. There is not such a large number of communicants that it is difficult to gauge the amount of wine for the Eucharist. There is no danger that more than a reasonable quantity of the Blood of Christ remains after distribution of Holy Communion.

ii. The occasions listed in the ritual books iii. Weekday Masses

vi. The role of the Priest and Deacon

i. Solemnities, Sundays, Holy Days of Obligation




i. The Easter Vigil (to the newly baptized, their godfathers, godmothers, Catholic parents and spouses, and their lay catechists

vii. There are no health concerns such as influenza or some other contagious disease that would deter the faithful from approaching the chalice.

iii. Confirmation (to adults who are confirmed, their sponsors, parents, wives and husbands, and catechists

cific ritual books, namely:

viii. “The chalice should not be ministered to lay members of Christ’s faithful where… a notable part of the people continues to prefer not to approach the chalice for various reasons, so that the sign of unity would in some sense be negated.”

iii. There exists not even a small danger of the sacred species being profaned.

v. There is an adequate number of ordinary ministers of Holy Communion for the distribution of Holy Communion. When this is not the case, there is an adequate number of properly deputed and trained extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion.

as the ordinary ministers of Holy Communion is not obscured by an excessive use of extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion; the bond between the ministerial priesthood and the Eucharist is clearly manifest.

ii. Ordination (to the newly ordained deacon)

iv. First Holy Communion (to first communicants and their families) v. T  he Chrism Mass (to priests) vi. N  uptial Mass (the Catholic spouses) B. Those instances listed in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, namely: i. for Priests who are not able to celebrate or concelebrate

C. Further Provisions i. During those times when Holy Communion under both kinds is not distributed to the faithful, pastor and priests are permitted to make appropriate provisions to receive under the form of wine for those who are unable to receive under the form of bread for medical or health reasons, such as gluten intolerance. II.In accord with universal norms, Holy Communion under both kinds may be offered in the following instances: A. Those occasions specified by the spe-

ii. for the Deacon and others who perform some duty at Mass, such as altar servers, lectors, and others assisting at Mass. iii. for members of communities at their Conventual Mass or the “community” Mass iv. for seminarians v. f or all who are on retreat or are participating in a spiritual or pastoral gathering Promulgated by Bishop Thomas J.

Homeless get a clean start thanks to non-profit bath and beauty company By J.D. Long-García The Catholic Sun

Steadily, he wrapped the fragrant bar of soap, adding a bit of tape, then affixing a sticker. It may seem like a menial job, but for Bob Bullard, it’s made all the difference. “I really love it here,” he said. “I’ve learned about computers; it’s helped my self-esteem.” Bullard works at Just B-B Just, a non-profit bath and beauty company whose workers are or used to be without a home. It’s funded by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and the Lodestar Resource Center. “We started as a great cause with a soap company, but we want to be a great soap company that has a good cause,” explained Shannon Felty, who also works at Just B-B Just. The company’s goal is selfsufficiency. Employees learn life, social and business skills. Equipped with experience, Just B-B Just employees then move on to other jobs. “This is a highly skilled group, only their skills aren’t always applicable in the job place,” said Mike Tapscott, currently the special projects manager. He’s the only employee that hasn’t been homeless. Eventually Felty will replace him. Employees learn about business, join Toastmasters and attend ballroom dance classes. They learn about social interaction and office politics, about favors and trust banks. “The same thing goes on in the streets, only it’s different,” Tapscott said. “We’re teaching them the social code.” The company is in its pilot stage and the product is available online and at farmers’ markets. They sell

all-natural soap bars, hand cream, lotions and lip balm — similar to Burt’s Bees products. They’re expanding into spa items and hoping to get into supermarkets like Whole Foods and Bashas’. “The way to address homelessness is through economic development and entrepreneurship,” said Lisa Laliberte, who coordinates the Catholic Campaign for Human Development for the Phoenix Diocese. CCHD is the U.S. bishops’ domestic anti-poverty, social justice program. It seeks to address root causes of poverty in America. Felty said her clients sometimes pull her aside and tell her she gives them hope. “It gets them to a point where they realize that they’re not stuck,” she said, “that they’re worth something.” ✴

A Time of Remembrance... a time for families. It’s a time to honor and reflect on the friends and loved ones we’ve lost through the years. Comfort, solace, understanding, and sharing are just a few of the feelings people find when they share a few moments with others who’ve also experienced loss. You are not alone. Please join our family, staff, local clergy and musicians in a special holiday remembrance service.

‘Because of you’ message tells of generosity of CDA contributors By Joyce Coronel The Catholic Sun

Amy Cafarello stepped up to the microphone and told the 500 guests gathered for the annual Miter Society Dinner how their support for the Charity and Development Appeal changed lives. As the executive director of St. Joseph the Worker, an organization that helps the homeless and those with low incomes find jobs, Cafarello knows that in the midst of a struggling economy, many are out of work. “Because of you, St. Joseph the Worker helped over 420 homeless individuals secure quality employment this year,” Cafarello said. Michael Boos, director of Paz de Cristo, a community center in Mesa that serves hot meals daily and provides food boxes, delivered a similar message. “Because of you, we will serve 6,000 meals this year,” Boos said. In all, more than 70 organizations, agencies and ministries were supported by contributions to the CDA during 2011. The appeal raised $8 million dollars, and unlike many such efforts, almost every penny went directly to the needy. Fr. Greg Schlarb, vicar of stewardship for the Phoenix Diocese, said that the industry standard for fundraising costs was 10 percent. “The cost to run the appeal this year was 6.78 percent,” Fr. Schlarb said, “so for every dollar raised, 93.20 cents went to the agencies and ministries we serve.” He congratulated Bob and Tina Mulhern, the 2011 CDA co-chairs, for their hard work during the past year. The Mulherns’ goal was to increase participation in the CDA. “Their leadership increased the number of gifts to the 2011 CDA

by over 8.7 percent,” Fr. Schlarb said. “They travelled all over Arizona and the Valley to spread the word about the CDA.” The Society of the Miter, Fr. Schlarb said, gained 390 new members this year. Those who contribute $1,000 to the CDA are honored with membership in the organization and invited to an annual dinner to meet the new CDA co-chairs. Some 1,800 people belong to the society. Matthew and Cynthia Scheller, parishioners of St. Thomas Aquinas in Avondale and the parents of four children, will co-chair the 2012 appeal and were introduced to CDA supporters who attended the Nov. 9 dinner. “We are just a simple, faithful couple that strives to raise our children to understand why we need to be good stewards of faith,” Cynthia said. “We commit to the opportunity to model our faith and our stewardship for our children and hopefully to our fellow Catholics.” Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted of the Diocese of Phoenix told those gathered that the work of the CDA was love in action. “Everyone is here in this room because you love the Church and because you have placed your gifts at the service of others in the Church,” Bishop Olmsted said. “That’s a great consolation and encouragement to me.” ✴

Catholic Community Foundation boosts local budgets with more than 75 grants By Ambria Hammel

Nov. 10 at National Bank of Arizona. Funds will help the local community grow stronger in the faith, hear pro-life and other Catholic messages and work among the poor. Grants totaled $426,400, some $52,000 less than last year’s near record-breaking amount. Maureen Adams, chair of the grants committee, recognized all

Sr. Julie Kubasak, principal of St. Vincent de Paul School, said it’s an honor and a privilege to visit with families who are struggling financially. It’s also heart wrenching, she said.

grant to the Catholic Schools office. A volunteer grants committee has discretion for allocating remaining funds. Grant monies come from donations at the annual Crozier Gala and usable interest on some 150 endowment funds the foundation manages. The Catholic Community Foundation awarded 21 Christian formation grants to 20 parishes totaling $50,500. Monies will help more than 30 adult students at 11 parishes — including five each at Most Holy Trinity and Ss. Simon and Jude — enroll in formation classes at the Kino Institute. Blessed Sacrament Parish in Scottsdale received $5,000, the highest awarded in the Christian formation category. The grant will offset costs of an annual diocesan retreat for developmentally disabled adult Catholics. Other Christian formation grants will support first-year outreach at the All Saints Catholic Newman Center in Tempe and a weekly guest speaker series at the Holy Trinity Newman Center in Flagstaff. Fr. Matt Lowry, chaplain, shared how outreach is inspiring students, including one in a sorority, to spread the faith. Remaining funds are earmarked for specific religious education supplies at various parishes. Demand for communications grants held steady from last year with some $262,000 requested from 23 groups. Ten were awarded. Half of those went to pro-life outreach efforts like the Scottsdalebased Bioethics Defense Fund, Voces por la Vida and Gilbert-based Virtue Media Inc. The latter will specifically address Black Sanctity of Life issues. All told, $18,500 will directly support pro-life efforts. Mike Phelan, director of the diocesan Marriage and Respect Life Office, discussed the impact the grant will have for its Catholic Academy for Life Leadership. Some 230 high school students from every Catholic high school, 37 public high schools and 38 parishes are involved. Some $42,000 aided other communications efforts including weekly diocesan outreach through the televised Mass ($25,000) and The Bishop’s Hour radio program ($5,000). Life Teen, Radio Family Rosary — whose Spanish program recently finished its second year — and Mesa-based St. Kolbe Productions also receive grants. The Catholic Community Foundation relied on more than $23,000 from restricted funds to award nearly double that in grants for work among the poor. It spread nearly $46,000 among 13 recipients including, for the first time, parish outreaches at Christ the King in Mesa and Phoenix’s St. Mary’s Basilica. Five food centers/soup kitchens, three Catholic Charities offices and other agencies that support the poor and homeless received up to $5,000 each. ✴

Ambria Hammel/CATHOLIC SUN

All Saints begins perpetual adoration on its feast day By Ambria Hammel The Catholic Sun

MESA — Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted dedicated the new 55-seat chapel at All Saints Parish Nov. 1, four months after dedicating the community’s 1,900-seat church. Christ is “making this new church His home. Any day you want to be with Him, you can enter this church and He will be here,” the bishop said. The parish’s 2,000 families — nearly 4,500 in the winter months — can truly be in the Lord’s presence any time they choose.

“We went through the process of building a community, and as a result of building a community, we built a church,” said Fr. Robert Caruso, longtime parish pastor. “Now we have the ability to grow that community further through eucharistic adoration.” More than 575 Catholics committed themselves to at least one hour of adoration. The bishop said saints are foremost friends of Christ. “We need to free ourselves by saying no to the bad habits and yes to the good habits we call virtues,” the bishop said. ✴

David Siegel, Israel’s new consul general for the southwestern United States, visited Phoenix Nov. 1 and met with Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted of the Diocese of Phoenix to discuss matters of concern to both Israel and the Catholic Church. “We had a good conversation,” Bishop Olmsted said. “We touched on a number of issues and there were some places where we probably have differences, but they were healthy kinds of differences.” For years, people living in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank have complained about security restrictions and lack of mobility. After a spate of suicide bombings killed and wounded hundreds, Israel constructed a 200-mile-long barrier along its 1967 borders. The barrier, which Siegel insisted is more like a fence in most places, has dramatically reduced terror attacks, though he conceded it has its drawbacks.

“The wall is not anything that anyone wanted,” Siegel said. “It was a direct result of the wave of suicide bombings against Israel in the early part of the last decade… the fence has been and continues to be re-routed in order to help the local population.” The Israelis, Siegel said, must strike a balance between the “absolute necessity to fight terror and to minimize the impact on local communities, both on the Jewish side and on the Palestinian side.” “He would give it a very positive spin and that’s not what we hear from the people on the ground,” Bishop Olmsted said. “He [Siegel] mostly reiterated their view, but he acknowledged that there’s always room for improving things.” In his interview with The Catholic Sun, the consul general said he was surprised to hear of complaints about mobility. “We’ve taken down over twothirds of all the roadblocks, [and] the one third that remains — it’s even less than one-third — is continually operating 24/7 now,” Siegel said. “We’ve increased the efficiency, and our goal, like the Palestinian goal… is to enable the free flow of people and goods in order to encourage commerce and economic cooperation.” ‘Arab Spring’ raises concerns Acknowledging that many Christians are troubled by the “Arab Spring” and the concurrent uptick in attacks on Christians in the Middle East — the recent massacre of Coptic Christians in Egypt being a notable, recent example — Siegel said that Israel was “very concerned about it” as well. “Our friendship with the Christian world is robust and growing,” Siegel said. “What we can do is expose the plight of these communities and help the communities as well as we can.” Many such communities, Seigel

said, seek Israeli assistance. “They come to us and tell us the stories of persecution and we quietly help without having to broadcast it… Everything that one country can do, we do.” Israel, Siegel said, has the only growing population of Christians in the Middle East. The plight of Christians throughout the Middle East, Siegel stressed, is not just about Christianity, it’s about tolerance and respect for the rights of minorities. “It’s about will they be pluralistic societies or not,” Siegel said. “These are very, very important elements of the healthier society and a healthier region… for us it is a symptom, it’s a tragedy, but it’s part of the larger and very problematic crisis that the Middle East is facing.” The consul general said news emanating from the region doesn’t tell the whole story. “We receive news of crisis and news of difficulty and part of that is true, but I think we’ve let that define us. And it’s not the reality,” Siegel said. “There is forgiveness and there is healing and there is coexistence in Israel.” “We have NGOs and elements of our civil society that save the lives of Palestinian children from Gaza every day in Tel Aviv and people are not aware of it,” Siegel said. “Free open-heart surgery… training of doctors, working together on joint educational programs… Israeli Jews, Arabs and Christians coexist and coexist robustly.” Bishop Olmsted said he discussed the Arab Spring with Siegel vis-à-vis increasing persecution of Christians in the Middle East. “They themselves are surrounded on all sides by a number of militant groups,” Bishop Olmsted said. “They have a concern in this Arab Spring that minority and different ethnic and religious groups’ rights will not be respected. He said, ‘We have a long process that we’re just entering into and there are a lot of uncertainties as we do so.’” Fr. Peter Boutros, a native of Egypt and the pastor of St. John of the Desert Melkite Catholic Church in Phoenix, said part of the problem is that when tyranny like that of Mubarak collapses, a power vacuum allows the entrance of fanatics. Although Christians took part in demonstrations to change the system in Egypt, he said, things changed as soon as Muslim factions took over. “In their mentality and their way of thinking and looking at things, Christians don’t belong there,” Fr. Boutros said, “even though the Christians were there way before them, from the time of St. Mark.” Christians number about 10 percent of the population in Egypt, though Catholics are few. “All the Christians leave the Middle East,” Fr. Boutros said, “and the problem is, if you deplete the Middle East of Christianity, the Middle East is not going to be the Middle East… it’s terrible.” ✴

John Paul II exhibit unites Catholics, Jews By Joyce Coronel The Catholic Sun

Most people never have the chance to visit Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall and place their prayers between the ancient bricks that form the Western Wall of the Jewish temple built around 19 B.C. Visitors to Phoenix’s George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center have the chance to see a replica of the Western Wall when they tour “A Blessing to One Another,” an exhibit that chronicles the lifelong friendship between John Paul II and his boyhood friend, Jerzy Kluger. The two men grew up in Wadowice, Poland, in the years prior to World War II and the Nazi occupation of Poland that decimated that country’s Jewish population. The 2,000-square-foot, multimedia display packs an emotional punch with its many artifacts from the Nazi era and mural-size photographs. One display case features an empty canister of Zyklon B, the poison gas used to exterminate the Jewish inmates of concentration camps. The notorious Auschwitz was located just 20 miles northwest of Wadowice. Visitors to the exhibit also see a leather whip Nazi guards used for beatings and pass under a replica of the Krakow ghetto gates while an eerie recording of aerial bombardment plays. Some 12,000 Jews were herded into the Krakow ghetto when it was established in 1941. Karol Wojtyla, the future pontiff, and Jerzy Kluger attended the same school and played soccer together growing up in Wadowice. The exhibit features pictures of the two boys on school field trips and with their families. One display case holds a homemade soccer ball — not much more than a sturdy ball of rags tied together — that was used at the time in Poland. When Kluger discovered that both he and Wojtyla had passed the high school entrance exam, he ran to the church where the latter was serving Mass. A woman there, knowing he was a Jew, eyed him with suspicion. Kluger recalled Wojtyla reacted incredulously. “Doesn’t she know we are all children of the same God?” he asked his friend. Then came the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939. Kluger and his father went to a forced labor camp in Sibera. His mother and sister were murdered. The exhibit shows photographs of Wojtyla engaged in forced labor in a quarry and Jews being herded onto cattle cars. There’s a length of barbed wire that surrounded a concentration camp and a case containing the striped prison garb Jews were forced to wear in the camps. There’s also a 16th century Polish Bible, the scarlet biretta Wojtyla wore when he was made

cardinal and a photograph of him preaching at the Remuh Synagogue in Poland. Kluger and Wojtyla were reunited in 1968, nearly three decades after they were separated by the war. Kluger and his family were the first called forward at John Paul II’s inaugural papal audience in 1978. He was subsequently made the Vatican’s emissary to Israel. A life-sized photograph of John Paul II praying at the Western Wall closes the exhibit. Visitors are invited to write their own prayer intentions on slips of paper and place them in cracks between the bricks of the replica. The prayers will be carried to Jerusalem’s Western Wall. Nancy Splain, who helped bring the exhibit to Phoenix, sees it as a way to build community understanding. “The dramatic story of the reconciliation growing out of the friendship of two little boys that happened between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people, between Christians and Jews, is a gripping story,” Splain said. “It’s also a story of building bridges and reaching out to the other, whoever

that might be, so I think it’s got a universal message.” The exhibit, which has already been to 15 cities, leaves Phoenix Dec. 11 and will travel to Europe. ✴

APCHULE — The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity who have long run St. Peter Mission School keep their 200 students on a rigid schedule. Children drop their backpacks as soon as they get off the bus and run a mile around the track in the morning. “Our dogs bark at them on the way,” Franciscan Sister Martha Mary Carpenter quipped. The long-time principal said it jumpstarts their metabolism. Some students run another mile later in the day during physical education class. The sisters are permanent fixtures among the Gila River Indian Community near Chandler. They and the rest of the faculty, paid or

not, don’t let up in class either. The learning starts at the door. Whether they’re in kindergarten or eighth grade, St. Peter students enter the classroom counting. “Hema, gohk, waik, gii’ik, hetasp,” they almost mumble in O’Odham, as their hand touches each desk. The Native culture is very nonverbal. “They can pick up on the jokes, but we have to help them form a sentence without being embarrassed to say it,” explained Bryson Hall, who volunteers daily to teach the culture class. “Some of the elders will get angry with you if you don’t say it right.” Students learn the Native language, culture, songs and dances. They also create Native art projects following custom — girls do the beading projects and boys create gourds. The staff wouldn’t require

anything that goes against their himdag, or way of life. “We want our children to take pride in who they are,” said Sr. Martha, who is in her 27th year at the school. She’s been working with Native Americans for 41 years. Still, it’s a learning curve. “I tried to quiet my boys down yesterday in four different languages,” she admitted. The sisters’ charism provides them an endless amount of patience and joyful hope for Native American children. And they have no problem holding students back. Last year, 15 eighth-graders graduated. Twelve stayed behind to further master their skills. They’ve served in the area since 1935 and stopped taking a salary eight years ago. “The hardest it got was a couple of years ago,” Sr. Martha said. “We had $12 in the bank. But God worked His wonders.” Building a refuge There’s a barbed wired fence around the school for protection. And the dogs — who’ve been given names like Shotgun and Danger through the years — aren’t just there to encourage the kids on their run. “There’s a lot of gang violence around here, especially for the young kids who have older relatives, high school aged and up. I see that in my own family too,” Hall said. Children often look up to an older brother or cousin — even a parent — who’s in a gang. Reports estimate about 20 gangs operating on the reservation. “We seem to be seeing a growth in gangs, so there’s recruitment of these children at very young ages — as young as 8 years old,” — See MISSION page 15 ▶

Mission school keeps students safe despite rampant gang violence ▶ Continued from page 14

said Deacon Jim Trant, parish life coordinator at St. Francis Mission in Ak Chin. The tribe is doing a lot to offer after-school programs, he added. But, with so much distance between recreational centers, getting kids there can be a challenge. “These gangs have pretty much come from the outside, some from downtown Phoenix, some even from the Los Angeles area,” he said. “They’ve recruited and established their own chapters down there.” The sisters’ unwavering dedication makes the campus a safe haven for students. Just beyond the school gates, life can get messy. The sisters know that, so the students gather in the church every day before dismissal. Their prayer: to St. Michael the Archangel. “God showed us, through Jesus, that there is a better way,” said Corina Harrison, who now heads cultural education after six years as an aid. It’s been documented that lack of law enforcement resources attracts gangs to Indian reservations. There’s also the allure of smuggling drugs. A third-grader was once busted for pot. Students often go home to dysfunctional families. The sisters keep students longer to give them time to do homework at school. “Just because they go home and they see alcoholism and they see violence, they don’t have to follow that path,” Harrison said. “There might be gang violence, but they can come here and feel comfortable and safe. They’re going to have a good day here and it’s going to be OK.” Suicides are reportedly commonplace and they’ve hit close to the school. Sr. Martha said a sixth-grader came home last year to discover a brother hanged in the backyard.

St. Peter Mission School The Franciscan sisterrun school is the only Catholic school in the Gila River Indian Community. They operate a $1.3 million budget, while only charging students in the poverty-stricken area $300 in tuition. To find out how you can help, call 1(520) 3153835, or write: St. Peter Mission School P.O. Box 10840 Bapchule, AZ 85121 There’s some degree of domestic violence too. The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women under the Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative awarded the Gila River Indian Community with a three-year, $450,000 grant in September. It was one of five awarded nationwide. A domestic violence shelter is under construction as a home-based project. That’s all on top of widespread poverty. Some 80 to 90 percent of St. Peter’s students qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program at school. “For some of them, it’s the only meal they get,” Sr. Martha said. Living a culture The American Indians that live on the Gila River Indian Reservation have lived in the Sonoran Desert for nearly 2,000 years. While the Spaniards who arrived in the 1600s called them “Pima,” they call themselves “O’Odham,” or river people. They established an irrigation system that led to nutritious crops — like beans, wheat and squash. When American frontiersman Kit Carson arrived there in 1846, the generous people told him: “Bread

is to eat, not to sell. Take what you want.” During the California gold rush, the O’Odham often helped travelers on their journey, protecting them from the Apache. The land became part of the United States after the 1853 Gadsden Purchase. In the years following, tensions between the tribe and the settlers grew. In 1871, the first school was opened there — about two miles west of Sacaton. It became a boarding school in 1881. Many Native people remember the government established boarding schools as places where their culture was defiled. In 1892, Richard Pratt, the Army officer who founded the first off-reservation school, described his philosophy: “Kill the Indian in him, save the man.” It’s said that Pratt’s philosophy carried forward well into the 20th century. Students were forbidden to express their culture. It’s a stark contrast with St. Peter Mission. Although none of the sisters are Native, they do their part to embrace and preserve the culture. The Native languages are dying because parents, or other family members who care for St. Peter’s students, don’t always speak them at home. There’s a tribal initiative to preserve the languages, which the sisters embrace. “Young people don’t speak the language,” Hall said. “They’re afraid to speak it. Only a few really want to learn the language.” Sustaining a life As the eighth-grade class files into their culture class, counting in desks as they find their seats, their principal keeps a watchful eye.

in the back row between a girl and a boy to ensure they, well, don’t distract each other. She participates in the class, repeating the O’Odham words Hall asks students to pronounce. “Teachers aren’t afraid of doing what they need to do,” said Alyta Hilliard the physical education teacher. “This is a safe place. They can come here and be the kids they should be.” Hilliard has students playing all different kinds of sports — from badminton to golf. The rigorous exercise program began to address rampant diabetes. “You’re talking about a disease that affects everyone in different ways — loss of eyesight, amputation of hands and feet, attacking internal organs, even your heart,” Deacon Trant said. It has an effect on the entire community. Those who don’t have diabetes care for those who do.

Studies have linked obesity with a high rate of diabetes in the O’Odham. Hilliard said five students weigh almost 300 pounds. “But we had an eighth-grader lose 30 pounds last year,” she said. “After they leave here, they’re more conscious of exercising.” They also leave more conscious of serving others. Hall and Harrison organize a traditional dance group for students, bringing them to sing and perform at nursing homes and hospitals. “We keep them busy so they don’t want to get involved with anything like gangs,” Harrison said. She said the tradition of their people and the Catholic faith “go hand-in-hand.” But perhaps most important of all, the sisters teach students how to pray. In addition to school Masses and the prayer to St. Michael, students pray: “Lord, teach me to know that every day and down every street come chances to be God’s hands and feet.” ✴

Pope, Israeli religious leaders see need for courage in peacemaking By Cindy Wooden Catholic News Service

VATICAN CITY — Dialogue is essential for religious leaders in the Holy Land, “a place full of memories sacred to our traditions,” but a place that each day faces challenges to living together in harmony, Pope Benedict XVI told religious leaders from Israel. The “movement toward reconciliation requires courage and vision, as well as the trust that it is God himself, who will show us the way,” the pope said Nov. 10 as he welcomed members of the Israel Council of Religious Communities and several Israeli government representatives. The pope had met with council members when he visited Nazareth

in 2009 and he invited them to the Vatican. The council was established in 2007 and brings together leaders of 18 different religious communities, including Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Samaritan and Bedouin leaders. The Christians on the council represent the Greek, Armenian, Coptic and Ethiopian Orthodox communities, the Anglicans and the Latin-rite, Armenian, Maronite and Melkite Catholic communities, as well as the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land. Israeli Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yonah Metzger told the pope the group intends “to prove, once and for all, that we can live in peace; we do so in mutual respect and appreciation.” Archbishop Fouad Twal, Latin

L’Osservatore Romano via Reuters/CNS

Catholic patriarch of Jerusalem, told the pope: “We do not want this meeting to be merely a show. We earnestly renew our commitment to continuously promote justice, peace (and) respect for the dignity of every human being.” He said the religious leaders are “acutely aware” of the limitations of their ability to influence the international and regional diplomatic activity trying for decades to bring peace to the Middle East. However, he said, “as a religious council, we are aware of the power of faith and prayer and our responsibility to do more for reconciliation among our local communities.” “Though the problems we face are numerous, many resulting from a seemingly intractable conflict or a culture of violence, even so we, as members of this religious council, do not have the right to despair, to be tired or to give up,” Patriarch Twal told the pope. Sheik Mouafak Tarif, head of Israel’s Druze community, told the pope that promoting brother-

hood and rejecting violence and other attacks on human dignity are objectives held in common by the region’s religions. And, he said, the trip to Rome gave the religious leaders the time and space they needed to discover more about their commonalities and to build their friendships. Sheik Mohamad Kiwan, head of the 340 Muslim imams serving mosques in Israel, asked the pope to help promote peace in the land so many religions consider sacred, a land “where at the same time, the shofar is blown, the church bells ring and the voice of the muezzin calls to prayer.” In his speech to the group, Pope Benedict said, “In our troubled times, dialogue between different religions is becoming ever more important” for generating “an atmosphere of mutual understanding and respect that can lead to friendship and solid trust in each other.” “Justice, together with truth, love and freedom, is a fundamental requirement for lasting and secure peace in the world,” he said.

Religious leaders have a responsibility to teach their faithful that a right relationship with God is a force for peace, which must be obvious in the way believers live and interact with others, he said. After the papal meeting, members of the council held a news conference. Rabbi Ratzon Arusi, chief rabbi of Kiryat Ono, Israel, said that in addition to trying to lead people to faith, Israel’s religious leaders are trying to promote “a belief in peace” among people who are weary of conflict, but suspicious of promises of change. Melkite Archbishop Elias Chacour of Haifa told reporters that he and other members of the council are convinced their religious traditions can be “part of the solution and no longer part of the conflict.” “There is still violence, there are still many injustices, there are still many problems to settle,” the archbishop said, but promoting good relations among religious leaders is an essential step in the right direction. ✴

THE ROMAN MISSAL THIRD EDITION WELCOMING THE NEW TRANSLATION he English translation of the third edition of the Roman Missal — which guides the practice of Mass celebration — more closely preserves the ancient prayers of the Church. The translation will be implemented across the United States Nov. 27, the first Sunday of Advent. Blessed Pope John Paul II introduced the Latin text of The Roman Missal, Third Edition, in 2002. “I truly believe that the new English translation of the Missal will bring us many graces as we begin to worship God with these new English texts,” Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted said, “so much richer in language and theology than the previous translation.” Thousands of Catholics collaborated over the last several years to ensure that the translation of this revision reflects the sacredness of the Mass as a Holy Sacrifice. “If people hear what this new translation is really about, they’re going to hear Christ and have an experience of encountering the sacred,” said Fr. John Muir, associate director of the Office of Worship.

The translation, by more closely mirroring the Latin text, is more formal and appropriate for the Mass. The previous missals — issued in the 1970s and ’80s — utilized a dynamic equivalency method and stopped short of a word-for-word translation. This approach builds on previous efforts and better connects the words of the Mass to the passages of the Bible to which they allude. Sentences are also going to be longer, again, because they’re longer in Latin. But translators believe the longer sentences capture more nuances in meaning. This recovery of the meaning of the Latin text, though, does not signal a general moving away from the vernacular language all together. It is instead a reexamination of the Latin, giving more attention to the beauty of the Church’s language, to enrich the English. “We encounter the sacred in and through Jesus Christ. He’s the one that brings us to the heavenly Jerusalem,” Fr. Muir said. “In the new word, our excitement is that we’re going to encounter Christ and His transforming power and His ability to unite us to His Passover and bring us to the heavenly Jerusalem.” ✴


FROM THE ALTAR Months ago, the diocesan Office of Worship began working with local priests and parish leaders on the ins and outs of the new Roman Missal. They attended one of five “train the trainer” workshops offered in a 12-week period. Fr. Rob Clements, director of the All Saints Catholic Newman Center, attended one of them. Most of it he already heard or read before as he has anticipated the Roman Missal’s third edition for years. He admitted there are “a number” of priests who aren’t too eager to use the new edition at Mass. They have a host of changes. On the other hand, Fr. Clements quickly pointed to Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, retired archbishop of Los Angeles, as a champion of the revised Missal. The cardinal wrote in America Magazine in May that while he is not satisfied with every change in word or phrase, he knows the English-language missal must serve many countries and account for subtle differences. “The transition to the new translation will be a logistical challenge” with both priest and parishioner requiring worship aids, he wrote, “but we need to welcome the Roman Missal, in a sense, as a new friend.” Fr. Clements hopes the third edition of the Roman Missal brings a “definite, more cognizant role of ourselves as priests, as men who are alter Christus.” Fr. Rick Hilgartner, who is now executive director of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship, discussed the new Roman Missal in Scottsdale last September during a Life Teen conference for priests and youth ministers nationwide. Appealing to a crowd of priests and youth leaders, Fr. Hilgartner said, “You know what word appears a lot in the new missal? Awesome.” ✴




The eucharistic prayers are beautiful! The Collects and Propers are a vast improvement over the Missal we’re leaving behind. I think I’m most excited about the Creed, and placing it in the first person, “I believe.” Obviously it’s a direct translation from the original, but I’m hopeful it may call upon individual Catholics to consider what they stand for in making a public profession of faith. Fr. Rob Clements, director, All Saints Catholic Newman Center in Tempe

If the Church says we need to change something, then I agree with them. [On the creed] Some of the words are changing in that I don’t know what they mean off hand. Non-Catholics [whom I bring to Mass] are more confused about it. [During the consecration] The words felt more right. It sounded more authentic. The whole thing is going back to what the rest of the world is doing. Erika Wehlry, parishioner, St. Thomas the Apostle Parish

This is what I grew up with. It’s going back in time. The change from “we” to “I” in the Creed makes it more personal. It’s like you and the Lord only talking to each other. [On ‘I have sinned through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault’ in the penitential act] You and the Lord are really intimate with each other. Maria Cassano, parishioner, St. Elizabeth Seton Parish in Sun City

We are going to now be praying exactly the same words that everybody else in the world and everybody else in the English-speaking countries of the world prays. In a way, it’s an exciting time in which we get to think carefully about the words that we use to pray every single day as a Church body in the entire world. Jaime Cortez, liturgy and music director, Holy Cross Parish in Mesa

FROM THE CHOIR LOFT “The Gloria, the Sanctus and the Memorial Acclamations are all changing,” said Garold Whisler, music director at Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral. “Like everything else, they’re a closer translation of the Latin.” In order for people to have time to learn the new responses, Whisler said the bishop gave permission to teach the new sung responses prior to implementation. “The Gloria has the most changes, so I introduced that first,” Whisler said. “During Advent we don’t sing the Gloria anyway and we wanted to make sure people knew it before the Christmas Masses.” Adam Bartlett, music director at St. Joan of Arc Parish, has written new Mass settings using the new translation of the Roman Missal. “They are soon to be released as part of the Lumen Christi Missal, which is a publication that I’m currently editing,” Bartlett said. “It’s a book for the pew that will be

available to Catholic parishes in the spring or summer of 2012.” Bartlett said the book will include the new translation of the Order of Mass and various Mass settings, including a few that he has composed. Lumen Christi will have other features as well. “We will also have in the book several of the simplest, traditional settings and Gregorian chant,” Bartlett said. Any new settings of Mass must be approved by the USCCB Office of Divine Worship through a formal approval process. Both melody and words must be approved. “The USCCB wants to make sure the text is used properly so that there is no undue repetition or distortion of the text,” Bartlett said. “They want to make sure the text is utilized properly and then they are also reviewing the musical setting for its fittingness for the liturgy.” ✴

FROM THE PEWS The Nov. 27 liturgy will mark the first time English-speaking Catholics throughout the world will use the revised wording found in the new Roman Missal. Phrases of some prayers along with complete responses are changing to more closely match their Latin roots. Catholics shouldn’t be blindsided though. Priests in the Phoenix Diocese explained the major changes during an eight-part series of Sunday homilies beginning Sept. 25. Some were traditional with others mutlimedia presentations in hopes of bringing a more dynamic and consistent message. The homily series followed a multipart series of Catholic Sun columns from Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted on the matter. Local Catholic radio and TV air time — including a PBS program — aided in catechesis. Parishes did their part too. Our Lady of the Angels Conventual Church at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale published a 20-page resource for community members. Sacred Heart Parish in Prescott offered a mini-mission earlier this year plus a nine-week series of bulletin handouts starting on Easter. Claretian Father Daryl Olds, parochial vicar, said he has also attended eight meetings for various ministries to discuss the topic. “If we see it as an opportunity for a more conscientious and deeper prayer, our community will really benefit from it,” he told parishioners after Mass last month. That’s the same lesson found in dozens of books, brochures, DVDs, audiotapes and web resources dedicated to understanding the Roman Missal’s third edition. For Catholics who were active churchgoers pre-Vatican II, the revised language in the new Roman Missal might be easy to grasp. There was a lot of, “Well, that’s what we used to say” and “That’s what I learned, but I learned it in Latin” when 55-70 parishioners studied the New Missal this summer. It was part of a five-week “A Biblical Walk Through the Mass” series at St. Elizabeth Seton in Sun City. The parish offered a condensed format last month. Next week, St. Elizabeth Seton will be one of many parishes easing the transition for Massgoers. Pew cards will provide the new language for responses and prayers. That includes at the All Saints Catholic Newman Center in Tempe where there’s widespread acceptance, especially among students. Regardless of age, Tom McKay, a young adult parishioner at both Blessed Sacrament in Scottsdale and St. Paul in Phoenix, knows there will be an adjustment period. He remains confident that praying the new words will soon be “old hat.” ✴



ome Catholics may be asking themselves why the Church, after so many years using the current translation, is changing the words used during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Church spent so much time and effort on the English translation of The Roman Missal, Third Edition, because it deals with the celebration of the source and summit of our faith. “We do this, first of all, because the Eucharist is our richest source of grace and mercy, and the highest praise we can offer to Almighty God,” Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted said. “So, as we are about to begin to worship with the new translation, it is only right that we use this time to prepare well to understand with our minds and to pray with our hearts these beautiful new texts of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,” he said. Perhaps the most noticeable change will be in the translation of et cum espiritu tuo. In the revised translation, after the priest prays, “The Lord be with you,” the congregation will now respond, “And with your spirit,” rather than the current, “And also with you.” This response more closely translates the Latin text. It’s also closer to other modern translations of the Missal — like Spanish, French and German. “‘Your spirit’ means that spirit of Christ, the High Priest, to whom you have been configured,” said Fr. John Muir, associate director of the Office of Worship. He said it’s not dualistic in the sense that we’re speaking to the priest’s soul and not to his body. “It’s a sacramental dualism,” Fr. Muir explained. “The priest’s soul, insofar as it’s just his human soul, is

not going to do us any good in the Mass. Only Christ can do that.” This translation reflects what Catholics believe: that Christ Himself is sacramentally present in the priest. “It’s almost a prayer, invoking the Holy Spirit, the spirit of Christ the High Priest,” Fr. Muir said. “The dualism of Christ and man.” Christ, through the priest, brings about our redemption through the Mass. The English translation also makes clear from what it is we’re being redeemed. “The revised translation takes more seriously the reality of human sin,” Fr. Muir said. One example of that would be the Confietor. Where before, we would pray that “I have sinned through my own fault,” now we will pray, “I have greatly sinned” through “my fault, through my fault, through my most grevious fault.” “We’re not at Mass for a good time,” Fr. Muir said. “We’re there to be set free of our sins, and to be conformed to the Eternal Son of God and through that union, receive eternal life. While some may at first believe it’s “obsessive or neurotic or self-abusive,” Fr. Muir explained this calling to mind of our sins is something else. “It’s actually a great act of hope,” he said. “We’re calling to mind our sins in the precence of the only One that can do anything about them.” Some changes are minor — from “Lord” to “O Lord,” for example. Other changes, like the Gloria, are a complete reworking. According to Fr. Muir, Eucharistic Prayer No. 1 — which is one of the

most ancient and venerable prayers, prayed by the likes of St. Augustine and St. Ambrose, underwent “the most noticeable facelift.” Before the new translation, the prayer began, “We come to you Father,” but now reads “To you, Father…” “It makes clear the whole direction of the eucharistic prayer, the whole direction of the Mass, the whole direction of our entire lives is ‘To you, Father’ and that’s so clear and so strong,” Fr. Muir said. After the consecration, Catholics will now pray, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof ” instead of “Lord I am not worthy to receive You.” This change makes a more direct connection to the Gentile in Matthew and Luke’s Gospels, where a Gentile centurion asks Jesus to heal his servant. The Nicene Creed has undergone several revisions, including the description of of Christ as “consubstantial with the Father,” rather than “one in Being with the Father.” The word more closely reflects the Latin, rather than the Greek. Consubstantialis is the word used by the early Church councils to articulate Christ’s divinity. Christ is “of the same substance” as the Father, something which is more fundemental that “one in Being.” “There’s no such thing as a perfect translation,” Fr. Muir said. “Words have certain meanings that can’t be translated. Who knows? Maybe 100 years from now we’ll have an even better translation.” Building on the strength of the earlier translations, which served the Church well for so many years, this revision is an improvement. “We do the best we can,” Fr. Muir said. “We remember that Latin is still the language in the Church. It keeps us grounded in the truth.” ✴



ishop Thomas J. Olmsted sent official word to fellow priests about an implementation plan for The Roman Missal, Third Edition, 14 months ago. He reminded them that it’s about more than just new words, though. The new translation offers ongoing liturgical renewal proclaimed in the Second Vatican Council, the bishop wrote. The first part of that renewal period spanned 12 weeks when priests and other parish leaders attended one of five regional workshops hosted by the diocesan Office of Worship. They reviewed the missal’s development — promulgated in 1969, the same year the Phoenix Diocese was established — the revised language and took home suggestions of how to bring it to the parish level. As the introductory period wrapped up in January, a seven-part series of articles penned by Bishop Olmsted began appearing in The Catholic Sun. Various online and print articles accompanied them. His fervor for the subject netted two additional columns, one on the creed and another on living tradition. Meanwhile, local leaders trained key people at the parish level. They had five months beginning in February to ensure musicians, catechists, liturgical volunteers, teachers and other key people understood the reasoning behind the revisions. Workshops included a study of the new words and

planning for general parish education. School personnel also underwent training. The traditional summer slump of parish activity took a vacation at some parishes this year. They started a series of introductions on the revised Roman Missal in August. The following month, Msgr. James P. Moroney, a consultor to the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, discussed “Leading Liturgical Development” during the annual priest convocation. The deacon Congress four months earlier also focused on the revised missal. The diocesan Office of Worship offered workshops for liturgical musicians too. The office encouraged an eight-week series of homilies on the revised missal beginning on Sept. 25. Church leaders and parishioners hope to find themselves ready Nov. 27. When the priest reaches the altar and says, “The Lord be with you,” respond, “And with your spirit.” Then allow the next page or a pew card to serve as a worship aid for the rest of Mass. ✴

The boys created a video clip showing the need to build a ramp to the cafeteria for Annie Salasek, a third-grader they knew would soon need a wheelchair. Student council financed half of the project. Four other schools, two each in Illinois and New Mexico, plus 11 churches also earned grants.

Dual casts bring animated classic about love, inner beauty to life By Ambria Hammel The Catholic Sun

It’s a “tale as old as time” that’s being told twice by local Catholic school student actors this semester. When the schools got word that their young actors were rehearsing the same play, the theatres set up a meet-and-greet among the casts. Key actors from the Xavier/ Brophy production of “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” shared rehearsal and character tips with the Genius Theatre cast from Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Scottsdale Oct. 22. It was immediately after the students, some as young as third grade, filled eight rows to take in Xavier’s matinee production. The Scottsdale students were so excited by the final curtain that they tried to get the entire 59-member cast to sign their playbill. They also quizzed the high school actors on things like nerves, accents for the French-themed play, logistics of being a teapot and candlestick, and costumes. “I think we were all kind of scared when it started, but we turned that sacredness into energy,” senior Maggie Rodriguez told the Scottsdale actors after changing out of her signature Belle costume. It may have also helped that the first week of rehearsal, the Xavier and Brophy cast focused on singing. After that, director Janice Robillard set a deadline for each scene to ensure the cast memorized their lines. It all came togeth-

er in eight weeks, though some had an easier time than others. “I grew up with Harry Potter, so it was pretty easy,” senior Peyton Gurule said of perfecting her English accent to play Mrs. Potts. Joe Milligan didn’t struggle much either. At least the Brophy senior told his Lumiere counterpart that developing an authentic French accent was nothing a free software trial for French lessons couldn’t address. The cast also worked oneon-one with the director.

“Much of the message of Beauty and the Beast parallels the ills of our own society,” Robillard wrote in her director’s note. The greatest lesson, she said, is to look first with kindness and compassion, she continued. That’s what Terry Temple, who is directing Our Lady of Perpetual Help’s second production, said Xavier and Brophy students did. He said it’s love, both in the story line and behind the scenes, that transforms. Temple applauded the networking

Catholic schools, supporters celebrate faithfilled academics at annual fundraiser event By Ambria Hammel The Catholic Sun

Nearly 800 guests came together in support of the fourth annual Night of Hope to benefit Catholic school tuition. The formal evening Oct. 29 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown raised funds to alleviate immediate scholarship needs throughout the diocese. It banked the remaining 10 percent in an endowment fund for future need-based scholarships. Key people who make each campus thrive gathered in one grand ballroom to support each other. That included more than 50 students from several campuses, who in an array of school uniforms served as ambassadors and mini emcees. More than 500,000 children have enrolled in local Catholic schools since 1969, according to MaryBeth Mueller, superintendent of the diocese. Today, students are spread across 26 preschools, 29 elementary schools and six high schools. “The impact made and to be made on our world is simply unimaginable,” Mueller said. She said graduates are “movers and shakers,” whether they’re politicians, doctors, scientists, educators, mothers, fathers, priests, religious or pursue other professions. Dozens of Catholic school graduates filled the room, including one who received a special recognition, one of three Guardian of Hope Awards. Night of Hope also honors an alumnus, educator and benefactor for advancing Catholic education in the diocese. They give hope to the future of Catholic schools and the Church itself, Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted said. “Our Catholic schools are a blessing to our families, to our

community and to our nation,” the bishop said. “Catholic schools make students good citizens of this world and good citizens of the kingdom of heaven.” The bishop and superintendent presented Kelly McKone, an alumnus of Ss. Simon and Jude and Brophy College Preparatory, with a Guardian of Hope Award. McKone admittedly went from being tied to his seat in first grade to voluntarily staying at school as an adult. He helped raise $8 million in pledges for Ss. Simon and Jude to build Our Lady of Loreto Center last year so students could have a gym and additional classroom space. McKone also was active with Xavier College Preparatory and the Catholic Community Foundation. Applying his faith to daily life, like so many Catholic school alumni do, McKone used song lyrics to remind the crowd of the importance of leading a Christ-centered life. Owen Cotton, a benefactor of local Catholic schools since the early 1980s, was also named a Guardian of Hope. He led the way toward a more competitive compensation system for school employees,

helped individual campuses address financial needs and served on many boards of directors. Mueller said he exemplified a good steward. Cotton took the stage and continued to promote the value of Catholic schools. “Faith-based Catholic schools are very important for preparing our children for happy, useful and productive lives,” he said. Sr. Raphael Quinn, a staple of the Loreto community and Ss. Simon and Jude campus, was honored with a Guardian of Hope Award as an educator. She’s spent 48 years at the school, 37 of them as principal. Sr. Raphael used her brief time at the podium to recall the blessings her community, alumni and current students have been for her. “Never lose sight of the little kindness that you can do each day to provide hope for the children,” Sr. Raphael said. Mueller questioned how morality could be taught without Jesus or Church doctrine. “If technological and moral challenges are to be met,” she said, “then we need Catholic education. It isn’t a trend or a fad, it’s a necessity.” ✴

Fr. Kevin Dilworth, SJ, Sr. Joanie Nuckols, Bishop Eduardo A. Nevares and Fr. Chad King enter Petznick Field Nov. 1 for the dedication. It’s the first true home field advantage the Gators will have in softball, soccer and lacrosse.

‘X’ marks the spot for true home field advantage By Ambria Hammel The Catholic Sun

With 100 state titles to their name, the Gators at Xavier College Preparatory have a longstanding history of athletic excellence. Yet, there was one thing a trio of sports, including its seven-time state championship soccer team, lacked: true home field advantage. Earlier this month, Xavier scored a goal there too. Bishop Eduardo A. Nevares dedicated Petznick Field, a 93,000-square-foot artificial soccer, lacrosse and softball field on the south side of the campus. The bishop and school leaders took full advantage of the Nov. 1 milestone. Bishop Nevares threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Fr. Chad King, Xavier’s chaplain. Then, in rapid succession, Xavier’s principal and campus minister broke in the soccer and lacrosse field. Sr. Joan Fitzgerald, IBVM, kicked in the first soccer goal and Sr. Joanie Nuckols, IBVM, scored the first lacrosse goal. The fans had their moment in the spotlight too. Rich Fennessy, president of the Xavier Board of Trustees, spearheaded the first “wave.” It started with the seniors, who sat behind third base, rounded first and then circled around to staff and guests who filled the bleachers behind home plate. Five days later, students, parents and alumnae returned for a field day of their own. Opening Petznick Field was part mystery and part fairy tale, Sr. Joan said. The mystery: how to acquire 26 properties south of the school and the funds needed to erect a field. The fairy tale: a quickly completed, environmentally sound field designed with a top-rate drainage

system. Petznick Field also features two dugouts, two scoreboards, covered stadium-style bleachers with seatbacks for some 650 fans, a “green” lighting system plus concessions, training and locker rooms and offices. All of that came to fruition nine months after breaking ground for both the field and a two-story Founders Hall, which is scheduled for completion next spring. “You are reaping the benefits from the generosity of parents whose daughters will never have the opportunity to play on this field,” Sr. Joan’s words blasted through the new sound system during the dedication. Case in point: Jessica Petznick,


the field’s namesake that spans three generations. She graduated last year, but the soccer star and other family members left a legacy at Xavier. Her father, Earl Petznick, Jr., and his father added their names to a growing roster of fans eager to make the “field of dreams” a reality. Support also came from a series of student and community fundraisers, including an annual fall breakfast. “You have changed Xavier and made our campus more beautiful with a field that’s unmatched anywhere,” said Sr. Lynn Winsor, Xavier’s athletic director. Donors also renamed the walkway along the fields and tennis courts: Winsor Way. Sr. Lynn played catcher for the Gators in 1957. ✴

New Norms for Holy Communion under both kinds


midst all the anticipation of the new English translation of the Roman Missal, there has been a renewed interest in the distribution of Holy Communion under both kinds.

As I have recently promulgated new norms for Holy Communion under both kinds, I would like to explain various aspects of these norms, and how they can help us participate more deeply in the sacred mysteries of Christ’s Body and Blood. Brief Background: Gradual growth Holy Communion under both kinds at Mass was widely practiced until the 12th century. Around that time the practice fell into disuse and Communion under the form of bread became the dominant mode. At the Council of Trent in the late 16th century the Church — after laying out key principles of eucharistic doctrine — deemed it inopportune to reintroduce the practice. In the 1960s, at the Second Vatican Council, she welcomed its use on limited occasions. Since then, the use of Holy Communion under both kinds has gradually grown. The most recent version of the Roman Missal, published in 2002, significantly expands those opportunities when both kinds may be used. It also calls upon the diocesan bishop to provide norms which set out the circumstances when Communion under both kinds may be offered. Occasions for both kinds As stated in the norms for the Diocese of Phoenix, Holy Communion under both kinds (hereafter “both kinds”) is permitted whenever it is judged appropriate by the priest to whom a given community is entrusted, provided that certain conditions are met. The new norms provide eight conditions which will assist a pastor to discern the appropriateness of distributing Communion under both kinds in various situations. Let us look at a few of these conditions and the reasons behind them. Belief in eucharistic teaching The first condition for the use of both kinds is that the faithful present at Mass are properly catechized regarding the principles of the Holy Eucharist taught by the Council of Trent. The Second Vatican Council reiterated the necessity of employing the Council of Trent’s teaching on the Holy Eucharist under one and both forms. Why is proper catechesis so necessary? A study conducted just last year shows that 40 percent of American Catholics say that a person can be a “good Catholic” without believing that, in Mass, the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ. Other studies also have shown that, sadly, a large percentage of Catholics believe that the Eucharist is simply bread and wine. This presents a serious challenge for pastors, priests, parents, catechists, and indeed all Catholics who — understanding and experiencing the power of Christ in the Holy Eucharist — wish to help their fellow Catholics encounter the Lord Jesus in the Eucharist. This transformative encounter requires faith in who and what the Eucharist is.

Fuller sign but not a fuller reality The teaching of the Council of Trent proclaimed this truth with incomparable precision. Put simply, at Mass the bread and wine become Christ Himself, whole and entire, under both the appearance of bread and wine. This means that when one receives Holy Communion under the form of bread alone, he receives Christ Himself. The same is true through reception under the form of wine alone. When both kinds are received, nothing more is received, but a fuller sign of the invisible reality of Christ is on display. Of course, this teaching runs completely counter to our senses. It seems as though more is received when a communicant receives from the chalice, because he seems to receive a second thing. But in reality when two kinds are received, even though they seem like two radically different things (the host is dry and white, the contents of the chalice are wet and red) they both equally are the one Lord Jesus Himself. For this reason, Communion under both kinds demands even greater attention to catechesis than Communion under one species. In fact, experience shows that the use of both kinds often serves as a litmus test for the quality of eucharistic catechesis. As pastors, we know we have work to do when our people say, “Father, do we get the wine at Mass today?” But we know our people are growing in their faith when we hear comments such as, “Father, what a joy to receive our Lord in Holy Communion” — under one or under both kinds. Purifying the vessels The second condition for the use of both kinds is that the priests and deacons are able to purify the sacred vessels either during the Mass or immediately following the dismissal of the people. This condition is rooted in the doctrine of concomitance: Christ is permanently contained whole and entire in every visible element of the sacred species, as long as those elements endure. This means that even one small particle of the Host or a drop of the Precious Blood is Christ Himself, and therefore deserves our greatest reverence. Priests and deacons have the sacred duty to care for the sacred species. This uncom-

promising care demands that the eucharistic elements are never treated carelessly. In fact, purifying the vessels is a priestly action because of its close link to the sacred elements that make the Mass Local norms for Holy Communion a real sacrifice. For this reason, only priests and deacons may carry out Read the text of the new norms for this quiet act of humble service, Holy Communion: Page 7 which silently proclaims the truth of Eucharist.

Carelessness toward the remain- makes many people avoid receiving from the ing eucharistic elements is not only gravely chalice. At the same time, it is important to recall irreverent, but runs the risk of damaging the eucharistic faith of our people. For this the teaching of the Church found in the new reason, Masses with huge numbers of people Roman Missal’s General Instruction (#30), “Holy Communion has a fuller form as a sign make the use of both kinds difficult. when it takes place under both kinds. For in this form the sign of the eucharistic banquet Sacred place, sacred actions is more clearly evident and clearer expression A third condition for both kinds is that is given to the divine will by which the new “there exists not even a small danger of the and eternal Covenant is ratified in the Blood sacred species being profaned.” The word of the Lord, as also the connection between “profane” literally means “outside the tem- the eucharistic banquet and the eschatologiple.” It denotes the treatment of a holy thing cal banquet in the Kingdom of the Father.” as if it were common.

Bob Roller/CNS

An expression of faith and love In an explanation of how the Holy Eucharist is to be distributed and received, Pope Benedict XVI writes, “All Christian communities are to observe the current norms faithfully, seeing in them an expression of faith and love with which we all must regard this sublime sacrament” (Sacramentum Caritatis, 50). May these newly clarified norms in the Diocese of Phoenix help us all to celebrate the Sacrament of Charity with ever deepening faith and more profound love of our Lord Jesus Christ, who invites us to the supper of the Lamb. ✴

Death penalty disagreement I agree with the letter writer’s point on “welcoming data that supports protecting life” (“No consensus on death penalty,” Letters, The Catholic Sun, Oct. 17). I observed the deputizing of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas’s authoritarian perspectives into his argument and his position is certainly valid. Unfortunately, I disagree with him on a few points. First, both St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas believed in that part of the Old Testament that says, “he who shedeth a man’s blood, by man, shall his blood be shed.” Secondly, not ignoring the ramifications of a convicted murderer or accountability, I lean towards this objection. Yes, society does have a right to protect itself, but it doesn’t have the right to be vengeful. It has a right to punish, but it doesn’t have a right to kill (Aaron Sorkin, 2000). Third, on May 13, 1981, Blessed Pope John Paul II was gunned down by the assassin Mehmet Ali Agca. His punishment was 19 years in an Italian prison. John Paul II, with the heart of Christ, visited Ali’s prison cell and gave him absolution. Even after this powerfully bold Christian statement, the pope further tenaciously petitioned the Italian government for Ali’s release. What I pull from this moment in history is that “forgiveness comes first and healing second.” If he could mimic the love of Jesus with Ali, why can’t we Catholics, especially in America, follow his example? This brings me to my point in regard

Here in the United States, we would never stone someone to death although the Old Testament approves it. There is no place in 21st century America for the death penalty and if the Catholic Church is to be credible on pro-life, it has to condemn capital punishment. Mary Anne Doty Phoenix

to the issue of capital punishment: vengeance is mine says the Lord. What does this mean? God is the only one who gets to kill people. Not Ali, not the state, not the letter writer and certainly not me. Matthew J. Toney Phoenix

No place for death penalty I have to take exception to several statements made in “No consensus on death penalty.” Unless I am mistaken, the Catholic Church is committed to promoting a culture of life “from conception to natural death.” Supporting the death penalty is not only inconsistent with this, but hypocritical. Furthermore, it is misleading and unfair to say that “statistics imply that many death

penalty sentences are overturned” by saying that the “sources of the data comes from anti-capital punishment” groups. The statistics represent actual human beings who were found to be not guilty or were proven innocent after their execution. Also, our courts are not carefully examining each death sentence as the writer states. It is nonprofit organizations like the Innocence Project that are carefully examing some of them. Most of the individuals on death row are poor and were inadequately defended and prosecutors are loathe to reverse themselves. That is the reason so many innocent people have been executed. We are not living in ancient times or the Middle Ages where execution was acceptable to some Catholic theologians.

I would like to thank Joyce Coronel for her articles about Chaldean Catholics. My boyfriend and some of my friends are Chaldean, and I have heard horrible stories about their relatives in Iraq being persecuted, tortured and even killed. I thank God that He has brought these people into my life, and that every day I am able to freely practice my faith without fear. It is important to raise awareness and stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who do not share these same freedoms. Erin Marsh Phoenix

Great, but not a saint Re: “Steve Jobs’ innovations facilitated new evangelization” (The Catholic Sun, Oct. 6), is this article kind of a Catholic eulogy for a Buddhist inventor?

Catholic Education Arizona celebrates new name, $100M in scholarships


n the current economic climate of big spending and even bigger deficits, it’s sometimes hard to grasp the meaning behind the numbers — millions, billions and, yes, trillions. Where is Dr. Carl Sagan when you need him? This past month, Catholic Education Arizona, formerly CTODP, celebrated a truly impressive milestone for our families, our schools and our diocese: $100 million in total tax-credit-funded awards paid out in 72,000 scholarships to qualified low-income families since 1998. But as large as they are, the meaning of these numbers is not, in our case, beyond grasp. There’s the head-of-household grandfather now out of work, doing the best he could to get his parent-less granddaughter through eighth grade in a Catholic school. She has a 3.75 GPA, and it looks like she’s going to make it through, thanks to her scholarship. There’s the mother and father whose family business has been in the red for the past three years, involved in the school and committed to offering both of their children a Catholic education, no matter the sacrifice. A scholarship this year kept them progressing on plan, barely. There’s the single mom, working tirelessly to make sure her daughter can pursue her dreams to help others. A four-year tuition award recipient, the daughter is now on her way to college on a full scholarship — the next step towards the medical doctorate degree she intends to earn. These are just a handful of the thousands upon thousands of beneficiaries whose dreams have been made possible, and whose lives will be forever changed, thanks to the tremendous impact of Catholic Education Arizona and its supporters over the past decade-plus. If the numbers are still hard to grasp, think of what life would be like in Arizona without these 72,000 scholarships.

Paul Mulligan Catholic Education Arizona

About half of the more than 12,000 students in 40 diocesan K-8 and high schools — 6,000 students — are receiving aid this year from Catholic Education Arizona. And more than 90 percent of these aid recipients indicate by survey that they could not afford to send their children to our Catholic schools without their scholarship awards. Ripple effect If these 5,400-plus students unable to afford Catholic school tuition were in fact forced to leave due to a lack of financial aid, the ripple effect would be enormous, and felt by all. The resulting scenario would be a disastrous one: ▶ Without students in the seats, many Catholic schools close in our diocese, likely in our most low-income, high-need areas. What will be the fate of these children? ▶ Without these Catholic schools, we lose significant capacity in the development and formation of future lay and religious leaders for our Church and our communities. Who will answer the call to serve God’s people, especially the most vulnerable among us? ▶ Core Church teachings regarding life, love and marriage are drowned out from the background noise and influence of secular culture. What will be the state of our families?

▶ Without Catholic school alumni populating the public square, decision-makers from boardrooms to the state Capitol and everything in between lose contact with a higher purpose and a greater good. Will we advance a more just society? ▶ The loss of academically rigorous, high-performing and cost-effective Catholic schools transfers a greater burden to an already strained public school system, significantly increasing the tax-load on our citizens. How much will we all feel this in our wallets? Fortunately, this nightmare situation has not come to pass, thanks to tens of thousands of individuals and dozens of corporations that have taken advantage of Arizona’s Private Education Tax Credit that costs the taxpayer nothing; the funds are simply redirected from one’s state tax liability. We can instead take this time to pause and reflect upon — indeed celebrate — the importance behind the numbers of what has been accomplished here thanks to our commitment to Catholic education in Arizona. So go ahead — immerse yourself in the numbers, great and small: 100 million dollars… 72,000 scholarships… 14 years of success… and one tremendous legacy from our investment in Catholic education. But don’t forget three more: state tax credits of up to $1,000 for married filers and $500 for single filers. At zero cost to you. Visit for more information. ✴ Paul S. Mulligan, M.T.S., is a K-12 diocesan Catholic school alumnus and the executive director of Catholic Education Arizona.

Suffer the children: Enough with the hatred — let’s live in peace


he children in my First Communion catechism class are like little sponges, ready to soak up the material presented in each week’s lesson. Still, as every teacher knows, it’s what children learn at home from their parents that makes all the difference. Our goal as catechists is to help form their minds and hearts to know and love God. They’ve been learning about Him since their infancy, we hope, and our job is to reinforce and build on that firm foundation. I thought about that as I watched a powerful PBS film called “Bridge over the Wadi.” It’s the story of a school in Israel where Jewish and Muslim students learn together, building friendships and understanding. The film has no narrator but consists of footage of parents, teachers and students involved with the school. It’s hard not to be touched by the dialogue. Clearly, the adults associated with the undertaking want the children to grow up respecting others, in spite of sharp religious and cultural differences. “I was told to hate Jews and that Jews were evil,” one Arab mother says of her own youth. When her daughter told her she hated Jews too, the mother was troubled. “Why should my daughter grow up that way?” she wondered, and enrolled her little girl in the school. Scenes of a Jewish mother and her sons on the first day of class tug at your heartstrings, too. The older boy worries there might be terror attacks since the school is located in

an Arab village. Each class has two teachers, one Jewish, the other, Arab. Students are there to learn each other’s languages, religious beliefs and try to understand each other’s point of view. It’s a tall order, but these are 5- to 9-year-old children after all, with their sponge-like brains. We hold our breaths, praying the idealistic venture will succeed. Daunting task As the film progresses, viewers watch as the parents and teachers work through their own hang-ups and prejudices. Clearly, the intentions of those who dared to launch this effort are praiseworthy, but things unravel a bit as the adults struggle with the practical details. We see two young girls, one Jewish and the other Muslim, hold hands as they skip through an amusement park. A Jewish boy has a Muslim friend over for lunch, an unprecedented affair.

The parents’ and teachers’ fears, misgivings and yes, even hatred, begin to surface as time goes by. One Muslim father’s matter-of-fact assertion — with his young daughter sitting quietly at his side — that he would shoot her if she had a boyfriend leaves viewers simply stunned. How will these two cultures and ways of life ever be reconciled? It seems utterly impossible, at least for the adults. The children appear to be making friends quite nicely. Those who founded the school are confronting one of history’s longest battles ever between civilizations. It’s a lofty goal, this effort to build friendships between the children of those who have fought each other for millennia. There are those who say it is impossible to achieve peace in the Middle East and it certainly does appear bleak right now. Perhaps by building individual friendships between cultures there can be some progress, at least on a small scale. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step and we can only hope and pray that this educational project in Israel is a small step toward peace. It’s a good reminder of our solemn responsibility that as parents, we are our children’s first teachers. What we instill in their minds and hearts society will one day reap. Let us pray that we are building a future of peace. ✴ Joyce Coronel is a regular contributor to The Catholic Sun. Please send comments to

Rise of ‘compassionate capitalism’ good for public, corporations


hree cheers for compassionate capitalism — and the proof that profit and public responsibility, or at least accountability, are not unrelated. In fact, maybe they are inexorably connected to each other. But don’t just take my word for it. The recent backlash over proposed new debit card fees by banks in America is the perfect example. The fact that those banks finally listened to the protestations of their customers is the best news yet for the future of America and the future of capitalism. The last two years have been a real test for businesses in America, making many wonder if capitalism would survive the backlash of public protests. But the reality is that outside of a few wacky extremists crying for outright socialism, most Americans don’t oppose capitalism or profits. What they are fed up with, and rightfully so, is the proliferation of unfettered greed and the rise of an embarrassingly irresponsible corporate culture of selfishness. Case in point: the debit card fee fiasco. This all began in September after Bank of America foolishly decided to try to nickel and dime the American public (the same American public who bailed them out just a few years ago) by adding a $5-a-month fee to use debit cards. Other banks soon announced they would do the same.

Chris Benguhe A Better View

This resulted in a huge public outcry from customers, with many threatening to leave en masse. These banks, including Bank of America, reversed their decision. Obviously these banks changed their minds because they stood to lose customers, costing them more in the long run. Free will, free market Is this more than just an isolated case? Maybe it means that corporate America is remembering the bottom line is not just dollars, but sense — in that looking out for its customers will improve its outlook in the long run. People are more apt to work for and buy from companies that are nice instead of nasty. It is proven time and time again. Henry Ford, one of the most successful capitalists in American history, purposely raised his employees’ salaries

more than he needed to in order to enable them to buy his cars. That wasn’t just because he was a nice guy. He knew it would create generations of Ford customers that in the long run would earn the company much more than it cost in the short term. The byproduct of that was he made a whole lot of employees happier and better off, too, and he was probably the happier for it as well. I do not think it is the government’s responsibility to make these companies act morally. We need free will and free markets. God does not make us do the right thing, and neither should government. Eventually people will get tired of being taken advantage of, and will rise up and make these companies do the right thing. Why have there been so many short-sighted, selfish companies in the last few decades? The answer is simple: stupidity. If everyone (the companies, the employees and the consumers) prospers more in the long run, by running a considerate and socially responsible business, then only a fool would do it differently. Thank God some of those fools are beginning to wise up. ✴ Chris Benguhe is a columnist for The Catholic Sun. Visit Follow him on Twitter: @ cbenguhe.

Everyday Catholics making a difference

Jean Quarelli

Parish nurse brings care, compassion to infirm


I feel much closer to God and I can see Him in my life much more. I just rely on Him for guidance and for strength. And the Eucharist; as a Protestant, Communion was symbolic, it wasn’t actually the Body and Blood [of Christ,] so I feel that strengthens me.

What he loves about being Catholic: [As a Catholic] I just feel much more connected with the Holy Spirit, with God. I’ve always been able to see God working in my life, but I just feel much closer to Jesus and Mary. ✴

omebound members of St. Francis Xavier Parish have an angel of sorts watching over them. Parish nurse Jean Quarelli may not have wings or a halo, but she might as well, at least according to some. “The English language fails in capturing this lady,” said Fr. David Robinson, S J, of Cuarelli’s work. “She’s a wonderful combination of mind and heart and competence along with kindness.” It’s not just her medical knowledge that sets her apart, the priest said. “It’s asking people how they are doing spiritually, knowing that those two things working together— that’s what needs healing,” Fr. Robinson said. Quarelli, a convert to the Catholic faith, is a retired critical-care nurse who spent 30 years working with patients in a local hospital’s intensive care and cardiac unit. Six months into her retirement, she heard St. Francis Xavier wanted to hire a parish nurse. For the last four years, Quarelli’s been bringing her skills and compassion into the homes of parishioners who need her special blend of know-how and heartfelt concern. Attired in blue surgical scrubs and a crisp white jacket. Quarelli checks in on more than a dozen parishioners who rely on her advice, experience and willingness to lend a hand. Many are lonely and facing their mortality. Quarelli said the patients she sees are buoyed by their Catholic faith. “They are so thankful for the blessings they’ve had,” she said. “Several have told me, ‘I’m ready.’” One such patient stitched a white satin gown she wants to be buried in when her time comes. The care Quarelli renders isn’t traditional nursing care — it’s more like the doctors of old who made house calls and spent time getting to know their patients. Mostly, Quarelli offers the kind of compassionate service that a family member would. She’s been known to pick up prescriptions or even a loaf of bread for those in her charge.

Book Review

Dominicans and dogs and prayers oh my! ‘J. Edgar’: A failed biopic Reviewed by Andrew Junker The Catholic Sun


n his new book, Dominican Father Nathan Castle claims The Wizard of Oz has been seen by more people than any other movie. His source is Angela Lansbury, from an interview she gave on a supplemental DVD included with the film’s collector’s edition. A brief Google search finds this claim hotly contested among certain enthusiasts — Lansbury’s trustworthiness notwithstanding — but Fr. Castle’s more salient point holds: The Wizard of Oz is a very popular movie and one that is part of our cultural landscape. It’s also a movie dear to his heart, and has been since the 1960s, when his family, friends and neighbors would gather around the TV for the film’s yearly airing. Its continued popularity and influence has caused Fr. Castle to wonder over the years what makes it so powerful, what its message is, what it teaches the viewer. “I am a preacher; the point of preaching is to communicate good news to people,” he writes. “To do that, one first has to gain their attention, and with God’s help one hopes to be invited into their hearts. I pay attention to anything that people take to heart. So many people have invited this story and these characters into their hearts. I want to know why.” The result of his inquiry is “And Toto, Too: The Wizard of Oz as a Spiritual Adventure,” which explores the film for its spiritual resonances. The book proceeds through the movie linearly. It’s not quite a scene-by-scene exegesis,

“And Toto, Too: The Wizard of Oz as a Spiritual Adventure,” by Nathan G. Castle, O.P. (Good Dog Outreach, 2011) $19.95. Available on the Web at

but it’s close. The Wizard of Oz is a journey or quest story: Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Lion travel through Oz and face a number of obstacles in pursuit of their goals. Dorothy wants to return to Kansas, and her companions need a brain, a heart and some courage, respectively. As such, it provides a good frame for writing about the spiritual quest offered to everyone. Like any good preacher, Fr. Castle is able to weave a good moral or spiritual insight out of any source material. In this manner, Dorothy’s ruby slippers become an illustration of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, which are strengthened in the sacrament of confirmation. “They are activated when the need arises,” Fr. Castle writes. “We can’t know ahead of time every

resource we’ll need in life. Within us are the gifts, which will manifest when needed. In my interpretation of the story, Dorothy walks now, not in magic shoes, but in spiritual gifts, which her future challenges, will call forth.” Likewise, Fr. Castle identifies three states of being Dorothy must confront in her travels through Oz: Disappointment, disillusionment and disorientation. “Disappointment derives from the idea of being removed from an appointed office or a status to which we feel entitled. The mind escapes the present moment and runs ahead to some future place or state, endowing it with every imaginable good,” he writes. “Today’s troubles are replaced with tomorrow’s allurements. But as tomorrow becomes today the dream loses its luster, and we’re disappointed.” That’s a common enough snare for anyone to fall for, and it’s a good piece of insight. The book abounds with these teachable, preachable moments. Fr. Castle writes with vigor and clear enjoyment of the topic at hand. It has provided him with a good launch pad for his spiritual insights. And, it keeps the book engaging for those of us who, for whatever reason, don’t particularly care for the movie. The real value in the book comes from Fr. Castle’s fine insights and spiritual examination. ✴ Media critic Andrew Junker is a regular contributor to The Catholic Sun. Send e-mail to

iopics are popular, but problematic. This dichotomy is exemplified in “J. Edgar” (Warner Bros.), a biopic about the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar Hoover presided over the FBI for decades and contributed to much of the sophisticated technological processes the FBI uses today. Yet his service to the country has been brought under serious scrutiny since his death in 1972. He is accused of wiretapping many prominent United States politicians and their families and then using that information in salacious and threatening ways. Director Clint Eastwood undertakes the task of portraying a man with a contentious legacy. He must, therefore, choose a path, a side and a story and move forward with his film. In “J. Edgar,” Eastwood overreaches his story-telling ability, trying to not only fit in Hoover’s illustrious career, but also his private life. The film portrays Hoover, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, as many knew him — as an intensely private person. But it also suggests (as is often rumored) that Hoover was homosexual, engaged in crossdressing and blackmailed prominent political leaders. These are all contested rumors. That’s true especially with regard to the claim of Hoover’s homosexual attraction, a prominent part of the movie. Flashing between an aged Hoover of the 1970s and the younger man building his career, the film highlights his relationship with his mother, his personal secretary and FBI associate director Clyde Tolson, his closest companion. The portrayal of the particulars of Hoover’s life will get the most attention, but the really interesting part of the film is the development of his moral code. Hoover believes he is correct in all assertions of character. He takes it upon himself to play judge and jury to major players in the American political system. The film suggests Hoover wiretapped and spied on political figures to retain his power in the FBI, later using what he records for threats and blackmail. The character’s morality is determined by gut feelings and moral certitudes he develops for himself. This leads to corruption, an overreaching of power and an obsession with presenting a powerful version of himself and his organization. While the performances are strong, the characters never become engaging enough for viewers to

invest themselves. Hoover dies alone, paranoid and angry, but because he has spent his entire life pushing people away or in pursuit of control, he’s not a sympathetic character. When he dies, there’s a sense of relief for everyone else. If audiences have this feeling, as I did, then Eastwood failed to create a tragic hero. In the midst of working too hard to tell too much story, the characters are lost and, although the performances are strong, one is never able to really connect enough to care. This biopic fails in that it does not focus enough on the man himself. Instead, it overemphasizes unproven, controversial details. Perhaps it is all true, but regardless, the failures of “J. Edgar” suggest that biopics may be better left to history channels. ✴ Media critic Rebecca Bostic is a regular contributor to The Catholic Sun. Comments are welcome. Send e-mail to

Fieles de Phoenix preparan festejar a la Virgen de Guadalupe Por Joyce Coronel The Catholic Sun


a sexta celebración anual de “Honra a tu Madre” tomará lugar en Phoenix el 6 de diciembre y los organizadores esperan miles de participen. Ignacio Rodríguez, director asociado de la división de ministerios étnicos para la Diócesis de Phoenix, dijo que el evento anual que honora a Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe contará en la participación de católicos a través de la diócesis. “Ella es la patrona de nuestra diócesis, por lo es real-

mente importante para nosotros ser capaces de identificarnos con ella a un nivel diocesano,” dijo Rodríguez. La celebración de la Virgen es también una manera de reunir a personas de diferentes culturas. Hay dos parroquias patrocinadores cada año, con una de ellas siendo principalmente hispano. Este año se patrocinará las parroquias de San Patricio y San Agustín. “Ella llegó en un momento hace casi 500 años y se unió las culturas,” dijo Rodríguez. “Ella reunió la cultura europea y la cultura indígena y creó una especie de una nueva raza, la mestiza. Nos hemos reunido en virtud de ese mensaje de creación de un nuevo tipo de cultura y una nueva

forma de pensar acerca de quienes somos como católicos.” Armando Ruiz ha estado involucrado con el evento de Honra a tu Madre desde sus inicios y dijo que es una manera de honrar la dignidad humana de cada persona. “No es simplemente una celebración de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, pero lo que ella hizo al traer dos culturas distintas juntas y cómo le dio una hoja de ruta sobre cómo estas dos culturas podrían crear Iglesia en América,” Ruiz dijo. El Obispo Olmsted presidirá junto con los sacerdotes concelebrantes. Fr. Eric Téllez, el pastor de la parroquia de San Patricio, dará la homilía. ✴

Día de los muertos cobra nuevo significado en medio de violencia en México Por J.D. Long-García The Catholic Sun

TEPOZTLÁN, México — El Día de los Muertos, la tradicional conmemoración mexicana de los seres queridos fenecidos, ha cobrado un significado más profundo a la luz de la violencia relacionada con las drogas en años recientes. Los asesinatos relacionados con las drogas han estado aumentando desde el 2006, sobrepasando 15,000 en el 2010, según un estudio comisionado por el instituto Trans-Border de la universidad de San Diego. “Vivimos en una era barbárica”, dijo Argelia Barcas Bello, maestra en Santiago en Tepoztlán, pueblo construido en la montaña Tepozteco, cerca de Ciudad de México. El pueblo recibe muchos visitantes que vienen a ver una cercana pirámide antigua.

Barcas y otros comerciantes montan tiendas vendiendo artículos para las “ofrendas”, altares montados para recordar los seres queridos fenecidos durante la anual observancia del Día de los Muertos. “Estamos viendo más y más muertes debido a la delincuencia”, dijo Barcas, añadiendo que aquellos que murieron accidentalmente o debido a la violencia son recordados en su pueblo el 28 de octubre. Alejandro Álvarez, otro comerciante, dijo que México tiene varias maneras de representar la muerte: la calavera y las Catarinas, esqueletos femeninos vestidos, son dos de esas maneras. “Desde los aztecas hemos estado riéndonos de la muerte”, dijo Álvarez. Las calaveras Catarinas son puestas en el altar memorial junto con otros artículos valorados por el ser

querido difunto. Podría ser tequila o un paquete de cigarrillos, pero esos son siempre acompañados por los alimentos favoritos del difunto. “Es una religiosidad popular más vívida que el catolicismo”, dijo acerca del Día de los Muertos padre Martín Paredes Apolinar, sacerdote de la parroquia Nuestra Señora de la Natividad. “Aquí la palabra Halloween no existe, sino el Tiempo de Calaveras”, explicó él en entrevista con un reportero visitante de The Catholic Sun, periódico de la Diócesis de Phoenix. Padre Paredes dijo que la

tradición nació de la creencia azteca en Mictlantecuhtli, el dios de los muertos. Después que los españoles trajeron el catolicismo a la zona, la creencia azteca se mezcló con el Día de Todas las Almas. Pero para muchos la costumbre religiosa es simplemente una extensión de su credo católico. “El credo católico es el único que conmemora los muertos de esta manera, no las otras religiones”, dijo Barcas. Ana Elisa Rodríguez, quien trabaja en la iglesia local, dijo que este no es pagano tampoco. A los niños de Tepoztlán se les prohíbe vestirse

de brujas, ella dijo, y si lo hacen no reciben caramelos. Las flores son usadas para llevar el ser querido fenecido hasta el altar conmemorativo con su dulce fragancia, dijo Rodríguez. Se deja una vela para que los seres queridos puedan encontrar su camino de regreso al purgatorio. La Misa es celebrada en los cementerios el día 2 de noviembre. Después de visitar las tumbas los miembros de las familias regresan a casa a comer el alimento de los altares conmemorativos. Gran parte de este es fruta, también dada a los niños que vienen a pedir para las calaveras. La tradición está siendo pasada a las generaciones futuras a través de la familia y las escuelas. Muchas escuelas son anfitrionas de competencias de ofrendas, juzgando los mejores altares conmemorativos mientras se enseña el significado de cada artículo. “La violencia afecta a mucha gente”, dijo Rodríguez. “Pero todos han perdido a alguien de alguna manera. El Día de los Muertos nos ayuda a mantener vivo su recuerdo”. ✴

Nuevas Normas para la Santa Comunión bajo las dos especies


nte toda la anticipación de la nueva traducción al inglés del Misal Romano, se ha renovado el interés en la distribución de la Santa Comunión bajo las dos especies. Como he promulgado recientemente nuevas normas para la Santa Comunión bajo las dos especies, me gustaría explicar diversos aspectos de estas normas, y cómo nos pueden ayudar a participar más profundamente en los sagrados misterios del Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo.

podríamos decir, hacia nuestro Divino Huésped, que viene a nosotros en nuestros altares y en nuestros cuerpos y corazones humildes. La falta de cuidado hacia los elementos eucarísticos restantes no es sólo gravemente irreverente, pero corre el riesgo de dañar la fe eucarística de nuestro pueblo. Por esta razón, las Misas con un gran número de personas dificultan el uso de ambos tipos. Lugar sagrado, acciones sagradas

Breve introducción: el crecimiento gradual

Recibir la Santa Comunión en ambas especies durante la Misa fue ampliamente practicado hasta el siglo XII. En esa época la práctica cayó en el desuso y la Comunión bajo la forma de pan llegó a ser el modo dominante. En el Concilio de Trento a finales del siglo XVI la Iglesia — después de establecer principios claves de doctrina eucarística — consideró inoportuno reintroducir la práctica. En el decenio de 1960 el Segundo Concilio Vaticano, reanudó la práctica en ocasiones limitadas. Desde entonces, la distribución de la Santa Comunión en ambas formas ha crecido gradualmente. La versión más reciente del Misal Romano, publicado en 2002, amplía significativamente las oportunidades cuando ambos tipos pueden utilizarse. También exhorta al obispo diocesano a proporcionar las normas que establecen las circunstancias cuando la Comunión en ambas formas puede ser ofrecida. Ocasiones para ambas especies

Como se indica en las normas para la Diócesis de Phoenix, la Santa Comunión bajo ambos tipos (de ahora en adelante “ambos tipos”) está permitida siempre que se considere apropiado por el sacerdote encargado de una comunidad, y siempre y cuando se cumplan ciertas condiciones. Las nuevas normas proporcionan ocho condiciones que ayudarán a un párroco a discernir si es conveniente distribuir la Comunión bajo ambos tipos en situaciones variadas. Veamos algunas de estas condiciones y las razones detrás de ellas. Creencia en la Enseñanza Eucarística

La primera condición para la distribución en ambos tipos es que los fieles que están presentes en la Misa se hayan catequizado adecuadamente con respecto a los principios de la Santa Eucaristía impartido por el Concilio de Trento. El Segundo Concilio Vaticano reiteró la necesidad de emplear la enseñanza del Concilio de Trento sobre la Santa Eucaristía tanto bajo uno como bajo ambos tipos. ¿Por qué es tan necesaria la catequesis adecuada? Un estudio realizado el año pasado muestra que el 40 por ciento de Católicos estadounidenses dice que una persona puede ser un “buen Católico” sin creer que en la Misa el pan y el vino se convierten en el cuerpo y la sangre de Cristo. Otros estudios también han demostrado que lamentablemente, un gran porcentaje de los Católicos creen que la Eucaristía es simplemente pan y vino. Esto presenta un desafío grave para párrocos, sacerdotes, los padres, catequistas, y de hecho todos los Católicos que — comprendiendo y experimentando el poder de Cristo en la Santa Eucaristía — desean ayudar a sus hermanos Católicos a encontrar el Señor Jesús en la Eucaristía. Este encuentro transformador requiere fe en quien y que, es la Eucaristía. Un signo mas completo pero no una realidad más completa

La enseñanza del Concilio de Trento proclamó esta verdad con precisión incomparable. En pocas palabras, en la Misa el pan y el vino se convierten en Cristo mismo, todo y entero, bajo la apariencia del pan y del vino. Esto significa que cuando uno recibe la Santa Comunión únicamente bajo la forma del pan, recibe a Cristo mismo. Igual ocurre cuando es recibida únicamente en la forma del vino. El recibirla en ambos tipos, no significa que recibimos más, es simplemente un signo más completo de que la realidad invisible de Cristo se hace visible. Por supuesto, esta enseñanza es totalmente contraria

Obispo Thomas J. Olmsted Jesus Caritas

a nuestros sentidos. Aparenta que se recibe más cuando el comulgante bebe del cáliz, porque recibe una segunda cosa. Pero en realidad cuando se reciben en los dos tipos, a pesar de que se muestran como dos cosas radicalmente diferentes (la hostia es seca y blanca, el contenido del cáliz es húmedo y rojo) ambos igualmente son el Señor Jesús mismo. Por esta razón, la Comunión bajo ambos tipos exige una mayor atención a catequesis que la Comunión bajo una especie. De hecho, la experiencia demuestra que el uso de ambos tipos a menudo sirve como una prueba decisiva para la calidad de la catequesis eucarística. Como párrocos, nosotros sabemos que tenemos trabajo que hacer cuando nuestro pueblo dice, “¿Padre, obtendremos el vino en la Misa de hoy?” Pero sabemos que nuestro pueblo está creciendo en su fe cuando escuchamos comentarios como, “Padre, que alegría es recibir a nuestro Señor en la Santa Comunión” — en uno o en ambos tipos. Purificando los vasos

La segunda condición para el uso de ambos tipos es que los sacerdotes y los diáconos purifiquen los vasos sagrados durante la Misa o inmediatamente después de que la Misa concluya. Esta condición se basa en la doctrina de la concomitancia: Cristo está contenida de forma permanente total y completa en todos los elementos visibles de las sagradas especies, siempre y cuando los elementos subsistan. Esto significa que incluso una pequeña partícula de la Hostia o una gota de la Sangre Preciosa es Cristo mismo, y por lo tanto merece nuestra mayor reverencia. Los sacerdotes y los diáconos tienen el sagrado deber de cuidar las sagradas especies. Esta atención intransigente exige que los elementos eucarísticos nunca sean tratados con descuido. De hecho, purificar los vasos es una acción sacerdotal debido a su estrecha relación con los elementos sagrados que hacen la Misa un verdadero sacrificio. Por esta razón, sólo los sacerdotes y diáconos pueden llevar a cabo este acto silencioso de servicio humilde, que calladamente proclama la verdad de la Eucaristía. Cuando se utilizan ambos tipos, el número de vasos sagrados se multiplica. En este caso, el párroco debe asegurarse de que los cálices sean guardados inmediatamente después de que termine la Misa. De hecho, el purificar los vasos con atención es un gran acto de la hospitalidad,

Una tercera condición para usar ambos tipos es que “no exista el menor peligro de que la sagrada especie sea profanada.” La palabra “profana” significa literalmente “fuera del templo.” Denota el acto de tratar a una cosa sagrada como si fuese algo común. Profanación no sólo significa que la sagrada especie es intencionalmente abusada o maltratada, sino que es tratada como simple y común alimento y bebida. Esto comienza con la comprensión, la actitud interior, la autenticidad de fe, aún antes de implicar acciones exteriores. En estos días, por ejemplo, ocurre a menudo en las bodas o los funerales Católicos donde muchos no Católicos están presentes, o en algunos días festivos que hay muchos Católicos mal catequizados presentes (por ejemplo, Navidad, Pascua, el miércoles de Ceniza, etc.). Se supone que en estas y otras situaciones similares, el párroco dedica tiempo para evangelizar y catequizar lo mejor posible, pero ya que ambos tipos no son necesarios, el podría juzgar necesario el distribuir la Eucaristía únicamente bajo la forma de pan y así evitar incluso la profanación involuntaria. Signo de Unidad

La comunión bajo ambos tipos es un signo especial de la unidad de la Iglesia en el banquete celestial del Cordero. Por esta razón, si una “parte notable” de la gente no desea recibir el cáliz, ambos tipos no deben utilizarse. Esto puede ser particularmente aplicable si hay una enfermedad contagiosa que hace a muchas personas evitar beber del cáliz. Al mismo tiempo, es importante recordar la enseñanza de la Iglesia encontrada en la Instrucción General del Misal Romano (#30) “La Santa Comunión tiene una forma más completa como un signo cuando se lleva a cabo bajo ambos tipos. De esta forma el signo del banquete eucarístico es más claramente evidente y clara expresión se presta a la voluntad divina, por el cual la Alianza Nueva y eterna es ratificado en la Sangre del Señor, como también la conexión entre el banquete eucarístico y el banquete escatológico en el Reino del Padre”. Eucaristía como Regalo de Cristo Sacerdote

Otra condición para el uso de ambos tipos es que el papel del sacerdote y el diácono como los ministros ordinarios de la Santa Comunión no se esconda debido al uso excesivo de ministros extraordinarios de la Santa Comunión. Esto permite que el vínculo entre el sacerdocio ministerial y la Eucaristía sea aparente. La Santa Eucaristía, porque es Cristo mismo, es siempre Su regalo a Su novia, la Iglesia. La realidad de la Eucaristía se hace visible, podríamos decir, en el sacerdote mismo cuando desciende del santuario para distribuir la Santa Comunión. Por esta razón, los párrocos deben siempre tener cuidado de que la distribución en ambos tipos no requiera que el uso de tantos ministros extraordinarios de la Santa Comunión eclipse este papel simbólico y esencial del sacerdote y el diácono. Una expresión de fe y amor

En una explicación de cómo la Eucaristía ha de ser distribuida y recibida, el Papa Benedicto XVI escribe, “Todas las comunidades Cristianas han de atenerse fielmente a las normas vigentes, viendo en ellas la expresión de la fe y el amor que todos han de tener respecto a este sublime Sacramento” (Sacramentum Caritatis, 50). Ojala que estas normas nuevamente clarificadas en la Diócesis de Phoenix nos ayuden a todos a celebrar el Sacramento de la Caridad con cada vez más profunda fe y más profundo amor por nuestro Señor Jesucristo, quién nos invita a la cena del Cordero. ✴

As an example, Helen, an 80-year-old widow and St. Vincent de Paul volunteer, recently established a $50,000 Vincentian gift annuity. For her age, the annuity rate is 7.5%, meaning she’ll receive $3,750 annually for the rest of her life. And, she may take an income tax deduction of about 50% of her gift this year. Best of all, her gift will support St. Vincent de Paul’s work for generations to come. Annuity gifts start at $10,000.
