Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dignum et justum est.

This scholarly collection of essays in Pastoral Theology remain more necessary now for our people, our Church and for our hierarchy than ever, even then, when first published in 2003 by the mainstream Liturgical Press of the community of Order of Saint Benedict based in Collegeville, Minnesota.

Although the dedication of this collection goes out to the former world-wide Abbot Primate of the ancient Order of monks and nuns, at no point do we discover herein any writing by him, despite his great eloquence and renowned pastoral wisdom.

Rather we find here in this pastoral treasure box scholarly essays in pastoral theology by noted Roman Catholic theologians, and others. For instance, the third section in the First Part (Episcopal Office: Sanctifying, Teaching, Governing) is by the great and Reverend Father Walter J. Burghardt, SJ, entitled The Bishop as Preacher. Jesuit Father Burghardt has written countless well-respected works on preaching and pastoral theology, the cornerstone of many seminary classes, many readily available on this site. For instance we may find edifying as so many have such books as Long Have I Loved You: A Theologian Reflects on His Church, and preachers may appreciate his Short Sermons For Preachers on the Run and Preaching: The Art and the Craft. We especially benefit from his presentations in Love Is a Flame of the Lord: More Homilies on the Just World and To Be Just Is to Love: Homilies for a Church Renewing and the favorably priced Hear the Just Word & Live It (Illuminationbooks).

Returning now to this present work we find the copy which I received divided as so many things Jesuit (not Benedictine) into three parts, plus the leaned Foreword by the Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee, Richard Sklba, date April 2002, plus the Preface by the editor of this collection, Dr. David Stosur, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Liturgical Studies at Saint Francis Seminary, who dates his preface 'November 8, 2002. Twentieth Anniversary of the installation of Rembert Weakland as Archbishop of Milwaukee (p. xiv).' Dr. Stosur also contributes an Epilogue entitled 'And A Little Child Shall Lead Them' rounding out these large-format, textbook-sized three hundred pages.

In his preface, Dr. Stosur explains the origin and commissioning of this essential collection thus: 'Contributors to this festschrift were asked to respond, from the perspective of their particular theological expertise and experience, to the following question: What does episcopal ministry that embraces the tenets of the Second Vatican Council look like at the beginning of the twenty-first century?'

A more transparent title for this collection may be precisely that.

We therefore find here three parts, the first mentioned above, the second entitled The Bishop as Subject and Agent of Dialogue, and the third Episcopacy and Contemporary Culture. The fifteen contributors to this volume, all S.T.D.'s and PhD's in the field of theology, include the Most Reverend Daniel Kucera, OSB, PhD, and the Most Reverend Oscar H. Lipscomb, PhD, as well as Rabbi Michael Signer, PhD, then the Abrams Professor of Jewish Thought and Culture in the Department of Theology, and a Senior Fellow of the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame, where he is Director of the Notre Dame Holocaust Project, and author of several important volumes, object himself of a collection of essays entitled Transforming Relations: Essays on Jews and Christians throughout History in Honor of Michael A. Signer.

We also find contributing here such eminent scholars and writers as the Reverend Father Francis Sullivan, SJ, S.T.D, Professor Emeritus of Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University and author of such standard texts as The Magisterium: Teaching Authority in the Catholic Church and Creative Fidelity: Weighing and Interpreting Documents of the Magisterium.

Other contributors include the Raymond E. Brown Distinguished Professor of New Testament Studies at St. Mary's Seminary and University in Baltimore, the Reverend Father John R. Donahue, author of The Gospel of Mark (Sacra Pagina), etc., here writing on The Bishop and the Proclamation of Biblical Justice.

The closing essay in this eminent collection on our Pastoral Theology at the beginning of the Twenty-First Century goes to the Capuchin PhD. Father Edward Foley, founder of the Catholic Academy of Liturgy, past president of the North American Academy of Liturgy, Professor of Liturgy and Music and Chair of the Department of Word and Worship at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, who here so generously contributes Aesthetics and Episcopal Leadership: Teaching,Sanctifying and Governing Analogically.

Those who do the math can see that several worthy scholars and eminent theologians are left out of this too brief listing (Bergant, Coffey, Erickson, Hinze, Himes, Root, and Wood). I can only invite you most urgently to taste and see the richness which lies herein, to save our Pastoral ministry even now in these troubled times in which we so require good and compassionate pastors of unfailing patience and sound teaching.

Take and read.
"As is said"  Dec 7, 2009
St. Athanasius said, I believe, "That the floor of hell is paved with the heads of bishops."
Blasphemy  Dec 5, 2009
Well done, your eminence. For, as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."

A disgrace.  Dec 4, 2009
Given that the "most reverend" Weakland retired in disgrace after his sexual assault of Paul Marcoux was made public, resulting in a $450,000 settlement in church funds paid to said Paul Marcoux, I very highly doubt that the disgraced archbishop is capable of providing "Sound Teaching," although he may have a plausible claim to "Unfailing Patience" with unrepentant pederasts in his archdiocese, such as Fr. Dennis Pecore, whom he patiently allowed to continue abusing young boys despite repeated complaints about the priest.
