THE AMERICAN CATHOLIC church is a remarkable institu tion. Its people worship in numbers that dwarf figures from elsewhere. It has one of the most vibrant of Cath olic school systems, perhaps the most vibrant. It is by and large an obedient church, some would say docile controversies of recent years notwithstanding.

There has been ero sion in areas of church life. Yet more is likely. The vii viii PREFACE American Catholic church, in sum, is a ready-made sub ject for analysis and study. When this book project on American Catholicism was first broached, no particular time urgency seemed to be involved. In recent years, nuns and priests had ex ited the religious life by the thousands, and their ranks were not being refilled. Many seminaries and convents had been closed for lack of need, then sold off to meet the financial imperatives of the respective religious com munities. The administration of Catholic hospitals in several cities had been turned over to lay boards, and a few Catholic colleges had shut their gates. A number of Catholic publications had disappeared from view, and in many Catholic parishes, focuses shifted, often to ac tivities of apostolic inconsequence, as emphases drained away from diocesan schools, very many of which had closed for good

What a modern Catholic believes about the commandments by John G Deedy( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Books in this series are designed to articulate truly contemporary Catholic thinking. Written by eminent thinkers and scholars, they are intended to set forth current and advanced thinking on some of the basic questions of life and faith. The writers do not claim to be infallible or to possess the whole of knowledge; they do not speak for the Roman Catholic Church. As informed Catholics, they do explore the options of modern thinking and belief and state them clearly, with conviction. Their aim is to inform in those vital areas where controversy and intra-institutional aquabbling have resulted in a standoff that has stifled effective positive formulation of what Catholics are really thinking and believing today
