Phyllis Zagano on the Issue of Clericalism in the Catholic Church

A Catholic scholar wrote an op-ed in the National Catholic Reporter on the issue of clericalism in the Catholic church. Its about how clericalism is preventing transparency. 

“Clericalism leads to a homogenization of the laity; treating it as an ’emissary’ limits the various initiatives and efforts and, I dare say, the boldness necessary to be able to bring the Good News of the Gospel to all areas of social and above all political activity. Clericalism, far from inspiring various contributions and proposals, gradually extinguishes the prophetic flame of which the entire Church is called to bear witness in the heart of her peoples.”

I was glad when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
2 Our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Pslam 122:1-2 NRSVACE

Honoring the admittance of California into the United States. 

This will be a brief post but I read the following op-ed in the National Catholic Reporter. Phyllis Zagano who is a Catholic scholar wrote an op-ed on the issue of clericalism inside the Roman Catholic church. Its an interesting read that I want to push here at this blog. You can read it in, “The problem of clericalism makes transparency impossible.”
