Statement from Bishop Daniel Thomas

Regarding Pope Francis’ Revision of the Wording of The Catechism of the Catholic Church Concerning the Death Penalty

With his revision of No.2267 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) Pope Francis has reaffirmed that which he has previously taught, Today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. The death penalty regardless of the means of execution entails cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.”

 

Pope Francis asked for the revision regarding the death penalty to affirm that “no matter how serious the crime that has been committed, the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.” This revision is not so much, as has been reported, a change in Church teaching, as it is a natural development in her teaching held over centuries regarding the dignity and sanctity of all human life from conception until natural death.

 

This development of doctrine highlights the fact that in our present age, heinous criminals can in fact be prevented from being a threat to society and to citizens, making the death penalty in effect unnecessary.

 

The new revision of Pope Francis affirms that the inadmissibility of the death penalty grew in light of the Gospel.  The revision situates itself in continuity with the preceding Magisterium, including the teaching of Pope Saint John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, thus bringing forth a coherent development of Catholic Doctrine.

 

I welcome this revision of Pope Francis to the Catechism, which confirms in a formal way what I, together with many of my brother bishops, have already preached, advocated and taught against the death penalty. As recently as January 11, 2017 the Diocese of Toledo held a prayer vigil to bring an end to the death penalty in view of a pending Ohio execution.

 

 

Bishop Daniel E. Thomas Denounces Moral Failures on the Part of Church Leaders

Bishop Daniel E. Thomas echoes the statement of Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of

Galveston-Houston and President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (statement below), and stands with his fellow bishops in their denouncing the recently revealed depraved moral failures of their own fellow bishops whose action, or inaction, has so wounded the vulnerable and betrayed the trust of the faithful.

 

According to Bishop Thomas, We cannot tolerate any abuse within the Catholic Church, and the moral failures of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick bring home the need to be diligent in responding to accusations in a timely and just manner, no matter who is accused or when the abuse took place.”

 

With its revised and strengthened Policy for the Protection of Minors and Young People with Accompanying Standards of Behavior and Boundaries and Guidelines for the Prevention of Abuse of Vulnerable Adults, promulgated on May 1, 2018, The Diocese of Toledo renewed its commitment of zero tolerance to the sexual abuse of minors on the part of anyone who serves the church. “I invite all our priests, deacons, consecrated religious and lay faithful to commit ourselves to prayer, fasting and penance for the healing of victims of sexual abuse, for all those affected by such abuse and for our own conversion of heart, mind and soul which alone can, by the power of Christ Jesus, eradicate sin and renew the church,” said Bishop Thomas.

 

Bishop Thomas continues, In making my own the statement of Cardinal DiNardo, I also make my own the words of St. Paul to the Corinthians: ‘who is weak that I am not affected by it, who is scandalized that I am not aflame with indignation?’ (2 Cor 11:29).

 

Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo's full statement follows

(http://www.usccb.org/news/2018/18-136.cfm):

 

"The accusations against Archbishop Theodore McCarrick reveal a grievous moral failure within the Church. They cause bishops anger, sadness, and shame; I know they do in me.

 

They compel bishops to ask, as I do, what more could have been done to protect the People of God. Both the abuses themselves, and the fact that they have remained undisclosed for decades, have caused great harm to people's lives and represent grave moral failures of judgement on the part of Church leaders.

 

These failures raise serious questions. Why weren't these allegations of sins against chastity and human dignity disclosed when they were first brought to Church officials? Why wasn't this egregious situation addressed decades sooner and with justice? What must our seminaries do to protect the freedom to discern a priestly vocation without being subject to misuse of power?

 

Archbishop McCarrick will rightly face the judgement of a canonical process at the Holy See regarding the allegations against him, but there are also steps we should be taking as the Church here in the United States. Having prayed about this, I have convened the USCCB Executive Committee.  This meeting was the first of many among bishops that will extend into our Administrative Committee meeting in September and our General Assembly in November. All of these discussions will be oriented toward discerning the right course of action for the USCCB. This work will take some time but allow me to stress these four

points immediately.

 

First, I encourage my brother bishops as they stand ready in our local dioceses to respond with compassion and justice to anyone who has been sexually abused or harassed by anyone in the Church. We should do whatever we can to accompany them.

 

Second, I would urge anyone who has experienced sexual assault or harassment by anyone in the Church to come forward. Where the incident may rise to the level of a crime, please also contact local law enforcement.

 

Third, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will pursue the many questions surrounding Archbishop McCarrick's conduct to the full extent of its authority; and where that authority finds its limits, the Conference will advocate with those who do have the authority. One way or the other, we are determined to find the truth in this matter.

 

Finally, we bishops recognize that a spiritual conversion is needed as we seek to restore the right relationship among us and with the Lord. Our Church is suffering from a crisis of sexual morality. The way forward must involve learning from past sins.

 

Let us pray for God's wisdom and strength for renewal as we follow St. Paul's instruction:

'Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect' (Romans 12:2)."

 

DIVORCED-SEPARATED MINISTRY

 

Please keep those attending the Summer series of the Rose Sweet video program "Surviving Divorce" in your prayers.  Plans are in the making for the video series to run again this Fall both in Hicksville and in Bryan.  Another Divorced-Separated Retreat is being planned for the beginning of 2019.  If you are divorced, separated, or just suffering from a bad break-up, and you would like to join our support community, join the DIVORCED-SEPARATED MINISTRY Facebook Group or contact us through St. Michael Catholic Church, Hicksville... leave a message at 419-542-8202 or email saintmichaelhicksville@gmail.com.  We welcome questions about annulments, what divorced/separated parishioners can still do in the Church, and where to get help.  Please pass this information on to anyone you may know who's divorced and in need of support.

Retreat Focuses on Mary as Model of Faith

Mary, the Mother of Jesus and a woman of faith, lived in dangerous times in a small country occupied by the Roman Empire. She has much to say to us, Catholics and Protestants, as we deal with the dangers and darkness of our time.

The retreat begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday, August 24, and ends at 3:00 p.m. Saturday, August 25. Sister Joan Delaplane, OP – a preacher, retreat director, and spiritual director – presents the material on Mary and gives retreatants opportunities to pray together, share with one another, and spend quiet time in reflection.

The cost, including meals and snacks, is $45 for commuters, $65 per person for double occupancy, and $85 for single occupancy. To register, visit www.webercenter.org and click on “programs.” Registrations may also be made by contacting Weber Center at 517-266-4000 or webercenter@adriandominicans.org.
