Commitment caged 'more basic' than celibacy By CHARLOTTE PACE Catholic News Service SAN FRANCISCO (CNS} -- The priest shortage today stems from "a more basic problem than the rule of celibacy," Jesuit Father Avery Dulles said in an interview published in the August issue of San Francisco Catholic. Celibacy "has been rigorous- ly enforced since the Middle Ages, and we've had an abun- dance of vocations," the renowned theologian said. "I don't think human nature has changed all that much" in the last 20 years. "The problem is perhaps that there is not that degree of com- mitment to the service of the church whereby people will take on the obligation of celibacy," he said. That, in turn, he said, seems to be due "partly to theological changes and partly to social conditions." The vocations decline, he noted, is primarily a :!i!!; i:i:i:i ii!i:i;i::i:i:! !i! .i:::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :i:: :i:;: :: :::: ::::: ::::::.:. :. :.:.::: .: .::::::: :. :.: American National Bank Bickne!l - Sandborn Vincennes Drive-in Facilities - Member F.D,I.C. A Full Service Bank phenomenon of North America and Western Europe, where "people move from one kind of life to another rather readily. Very few people remain in one vocation or one profession throughout their whole lives." Father Dulles, who turned 71 Aug. 24, was in San Francisco for the summer session of the University of San Francisco. One of the leading figures in U.S. Catholic theology for the past three decades, he retired last year from The Catholic University of America in Washington and took up the Laurence J. McGinley chair in religion and society at Fordham University in New York. In general Catholic circles, his most influential work is pro- bably "Models of the Church," a 1974 book which analyzed how different images of the church affect the faith and theology of Catholics. In the interview Father Dulles said in recent lectures he has been addressing "the model of the church as a community of disciples. That immediately iii ml ii i i Peoples Trust Company 59 SOUTH MAIN STREET P,O. BOX 191 LINTON, INDIANA 47441 i i n i puts the church in a relation- ship to Christ .... We are sent from Jesus, and we look to Jesus for direction. Every sacrament should be seen as an encounter with Christ." That particular model may have special value for helping people "in this country at this time" to understand the church better, he said. But he added, "From a universal perspective I still feel the sacramental model is the one that satisfies most." In simplest terms, the sacramental model emphasizes the character of the church as a sign and communicator of Christ's redeeming grace. It puts a stress on the faith and holiness of the church's members. Father Dulles said that despite the "many advantages" and wide popularity of the "people of God" model of the church found often in the documents of the Second Vatican Council, "I confess it's not my favorite image of the church." i ,i LOOGOOTEE FOOD MARKET INC.
