Father Reed on the Priesthood

The longer I remain a priest, the more I appreciate the priesthood and ironically not for all of the reasons I might have suspected years ago. As we conclude this Year for Priests, allow me to tell you a bit about my own experience as a way of revealing something most important about the Church to which we belong.

The fact is, I have grown into my vocation and, as the years have passed, I've come to find hidden riches. I suspect this phenomenon is true of marriage and religious life as well as priesthood. I do hope that, in 25 years or so, if I'm still around, I will have uncovered many more hidden treasures about being a disciple of Jesus, a Catholic and a priest. It is nice to be surprised by life and our God truly is a God of surprises!

How fortunate I consider myself and how excited I remain to be a priest. If you are reading these words and have ever considered whether God is calling you to be a priest, I definitely would give it a second and third thought. Honestly, many days I feel as if I was just ordained with new challenges always before me.

Actually, one of my favorite things to do as a priest is to distribute Holy Communion in the parish. It is for me a distinct honor to give such a great Gift to such good people and by the grace of God to make them rich! When people come up to Communion there is an amazing interaction. You can sense the struggle on people’s faces as well as the joy in this privileged moment of contact with the divine. From one poor person to another we share the living God and together we become even richer in Faith! Saint James in his letter asks: "Did not God choose the poor in this world to be rich in Faith?" It really is true: those who are rich in Faith are the richest people indeed!

It is one of the many incredible privileges of a priest to get to know many people at a very deep level, all the while remaining dedicated to all and no one person or small group in particular. In this capacity one sees the poverty of the human condition, the frailty that happily afflicts each one of us. And in this, one comes to recognize the need for God.

As we near the conclusion of this year honoring the Priesthood, what a distinct honor it is for you and me to know Jesus Christ. We know Him by Faith; not by sight. If we see Him with our human eyes anywhere, it is in one another. If you were asked Who Jesus is, you would hopefully respond with great enthusiasm: "He is the Christ, the Son of the living God." And that sure belief is what makes us blessed beyond belief!

God has given you and has given me many things and people and memories. But these pale in comparison next to our Faith in the One Who has saved us and called us to be everything that we were created to be.

Father Robert Reed Interviewed on NPR

Father Robert Reed Interviewed on NPR

On April 19, National Public Radio (NPR) aired an interview featuring Father Robert Reed, Director of CatholicTV during its program “All Things Considered”. The interview focused on CatholicTV’s recent announcement of the availability of 3-D videos on CatholicTV.com; and a 3-D edition of the CatholicTV monthly magazine which included 3-D glasses.

Father Reed discussed the use of the 3D technology to evangelize with NPR’s Art Silverman. Father Reed said that while it was a bit “gimmicky” the idea is to let people know that the Church makes use of current technologies to attract people to the core message of the Good News. Use of social media, high tech innovation, and a compelling message is essential to evangelization he said.

This edition of the All Things Considered program featured input from New York University Professor Angela Zito and Rabbi Mark Golub as well.

During the NPR interview, Art Silverman asked, “if 3-D technology can take us under the water, could it let us see someone special walk on water?”

A transcript and audio recording of this edition of All Things Considered is available at: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126114974

CatholicTV recently received national attention following an Associated Press story about the launch of new 3-D programming by CatholicTV. CatholicTV’s 3-D programs can be viewed now at www.3DCatholicTV.com.

Father Barron: an update from Rome

"I'm just back from St. Peter's square, where I witnessed Pope Benedict's Sunday Angelus broadcast on large screens from Castel Gondolfo. The pontiff has spent the past week there, recovering from his grueling Holy Week schedule- and undoubtedly from the massively unfair press coverage he has been receiving of late. As I listen to the endless reportage dealing with the Holy Father's supposed negligence in matters of priestly sex abuse, I can only shake my head. I want to say, "don't they realize that they are going after the one man in the world who can do the most to solve this problem?" No one in the world understands the gravity of the situation more fully or has taken more practical steps to solve it as Joseph Ratzinger. On numerous occassions, he has stated how disgusted he is by the "filth" (his word) that has found its way into the ranks of the priesthood, and time and time again, he has taken firm steps to remove abusers and to chastise those who protected them. I would recommend to anyone who doubts Pope Benedict's resolve to read his recent statement to the Irish church.

I feel it is important to make two points in particular. First, the insinuation that by delaying or, as alleged, refusing to "defrock" a priest, Benedict is somehow obstructing justice or "looking the other way" is absurd. The formal removal of a man from the priesthood is the last and most drastic disciplinary action that the Church can take and it is done, appropriately, only after long consideration, consultation and due process. But there are many much more expedient ways, shy of "defrocking," to remove a priest from ministry or contact with children. In the Milwaukee and Oakland cases, for example, this was done even if the priests in question had not been "defrocked." The implication that Joseph Ratzinger was trying to find a way to "protect" abusers or to abet their abuse is simply a calumny. And the second point is this: it is extremely problematic and unfair to retroject what we currently know about the sexual abuse of children by priests or any other adult back twenty, thirty, forty or fifty years and use our current knowledge about the phenomenon to indict church officials of the time. Prior to the early 1990's, most people in the Church and in the culture at large were unaware or only beginning to come to grips with the prevalence of this horror and the high rate of recidivism among abusers. Accordingly, many leaders- and not just in the Church- felt that sex offenders could be treated pharmacologically or therapeutically and then returned to their former lives and occupations. Many bishops throughout the 1970's and 1980's sent priest abusers to treatment centers and received reports from therapists recommending that priests could be safely returned to ministry. God knows that we have learned from painful experience how utterly inadequate this approach was, but it seems unfair to hold bishops to standards that developed much later. I find the suggestion that bishops and cardinals were intentionally and with malice aiding and abetting the sexual molestation of children to be an outrageous accusation. Were they uninformed, naive, imprudent, indecisive, and, in some cases, far too willing to trust psychological and legal counsel? Sure. Should those prelates whose lack of proper judgement led to the victimization of so many have to accept personal responsibility for their actions? Yes. But were they consciously fostering sex abuse? No.

Finally, and at the risk of sounding defensive, there are people in our society who have a vested interest in embarrassing and undermining the Catholic Church, and they will stop at nothing to achieve this end. The coverage of allegations against the Pope has been blood in the water, and the sharks are circling.

The sexual abuse of young people by priests is a crime that cries to heaven for vengeance. As I have said publicly many times, it has undermined the work of the Church in every way, and the Church must do all it can to address it. But these attacks on Pope Benedict are utterly counter-productive to that end."

Father Barron’s commentary on the current media firestorm surrounding Pope Benedict and the ongoing revelations of sexual abuse by some members of the clergy and the Church’s response will appear in the April 25th edition of Our Sunday Visitor. Upon its release, Word on Fire will also post the article on the blog and website.

Father Barron was also interviewed by NBC news during Holy Week. Only a portion of his commentary was featured on NBC nightly news and the weekend edition of the Today show. Sadly, from an extensive interview, only a few seconds where featured. Here is a link to their story: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/#36154211
