200 Jugendliche schreiben an die Jugendsynode: Wir wollen die Kirche nicht "formen", wir wollen, dass die Kirche uns prägt

DARLINGTON, New South Wales, Australien, 18. Oktober 2018 ( LifeSiteNews ) - Über 200 junge Katholiken in Australien haben einen Brief an Mitglieder der vatikanischen Jugendsynode unterzeichnet, in dem sie fordern, dass die Kirche ihnen einen "zuverlässigen moralischen Kompass" gibt sie in der unveränderlichen "Wahrheit" des katholischen Glaubens.

In Reaktion auf einen Zug des Synodalgedankens, dass junge Menschen die Kirche formen sollen, haben diese Mitglieder und Ehemaligen der Australian Catholic Students Association erklärt, dass sie dies nicht tun können und wollen.

"Die Jungen wollen die Kirche nicht formen, bevor die Kirche uns formen kann. Die Welt ist verwirrt. Und in dieser Verwirrung haben die Jungen nichts zu begreifen. Wir möchten, dass die Synodenväter die Welt daran erinnern, dass Gott uns nur dann retten wird, wenn wir uns in Liebe an ihn klammern ", schrieb ihr Präsident, Christopher Wilks, in ihrem Namen. [Vollständiger Buchstabe unten eingebettet.]

"Wir brauchen einen verlässlichen moralischen Kompass. Dafür müssen die Jungen in der Wahrheit wohlgeformt sein. Wir können die Kirche nicht formen, wenn wir nicht gebildet werden. Formlose Geister werden eine formlose Kirche manifestieren, die ständig der Wahrheit ausweicht", fügte er hinzu .

Das Gewissen hat keine Substanz ohne die Kirche
Wilks griff auf St. John Henry Newman zurück, um die Notwendigkeit der jungen Leute zu erklären, dass die Kirche ihr Gewissen richtig formt. Newman beeinflusste das Zweite Vatikanische Konzil in seiner Lehre über die Würde des Gewissens und dessen Bildungsbedürfnis, aber er verließ sich nicht ausschließlich auf das Gewissen.

"... Sogar Newman sah das Risiko, dass" Gewissen "als das" Vorrecht eines Mannes "interpretiert werden könnte, in allen Dingen sein eigener Meister zu sein", schrieb Wilks.

Das Gewissen hat "keine Substanz" ohne "die Kirche und alles, was sie anbietet", fuhr er fort, "göttliche Offenbarung, Tradition, Gemeinschaft und Vernunft selbst ..."

Wilks und seine Mitunterzeichner sagten, dass sie einen "zuverlässigen moralischen Kompass" brauchen, und dafür müssen sie "in der Wahrheit wohlgeformt sein".

"Diese Formation braucht ein Leben, ein Leben, das die Jungen nicht beanspruchen können."

Der ACSA-Präsident wies darauf hin, dass alle noch lebenden Katholiken sich in einem Wandlungsprozess befinden und daher nicht davon ausgehen sollten, die Mehrgenerationenkirche "zu gestalten".

"Wie könnten wir jemals annehmen, die Kirche zu gestalten, die als der mystische Leib Christi Milliarden von Lebenszeiten der Bekehrung, die Hoffnungen und Gebete aller verstorbenen Gläubigen, die Weisheit und Heiligkeit der gesamten Gemeinschaft der Heiligen und die Überzeugung und Tapferkeit einer ständig wachsenden Armee von Märtyrern? ", fragte er.

Verwirrung, die von hochrangigen Klerikern verursacht wird, die absichtlich mehrdeutige Sprache verwenden
Aber junge Katholiken selbst können ihre Bekehrungsarbeit nicht fortsetzen, wenn Prälaten der Kirche absichtlich mehrdeutig sind, argumentierte Wilks.

"... Wir können nicht hoffen, inmitten von Verwirrung über Themen wie Empfängnisverhütung, Sexualität, Gemeinschaft für Geschiedene und Nicht-Katholiken, verheiratete Priester und weibliche Ordination Form anzunehmen", schrieb er.

"Eine solche Verwirrung wird von hochrangigen Prälaten getragen, die zielstrebig eine zweideutige Sprache verwenden, wenn sie solche Fragen ansprechen, selbst angesichts der Lehren Christi, der Kirchenväter und des klaren Dogmas der Kirche. Eine solche Zweideutigkeit ist weder wohltätig noch erwünscht für die Jugend und muss von dieser Synode angesprochen werden. "

Wilks warf den Synodenvätern vor, "Regeln" abschaffen zu wollen und wies darauf hin, dass die Regeln der Kirche Menschen zu Christus führen. Es ist notwendig, dass die Kirche erklärt, "wie und warum das ist".

"Wenn die Kirche die Wahrheit für politische Reden vermeidet, bleiben den Jugendlichen nur oberflächliche Banalitäten, um ihren Glauben auszudrücken", schrieb er. "Auf bewusst unklare Worte wird ironisch vertraut und mit Starrheit wiederholt."

Die junge Briefschreiberin sagte, dass die Kirche die Jugendlichen nicht davon abhalten sollte, ihre Regeln "in Liebe" zu befolgen, und ihre Priester sie nicht unterwiesen.

Schönheit der Kirchen sollte Lichtstrahlen sein
Er bat dann um solche traditionellen katholischen Praktiken und Künste wie Pilgerfahrten, Beichte, Andachten, Anbetung, sakrale Kunst, Musik und schöne Architektur.

"Die Welt kann ein hässlicher Ort sein, und die äußere Schönheit unserer Kirchen sollte Lichtstrahlen in unseren Gemeinschaften sein, besonders im Leben der Armen."

Um zu gewährleisten, dass die katholischen Liturgien sowohl würdig als auch einladend sind, empfehlen die jungen Australier, dass die Patres die Nutzung des Amtes für den Dienst unter den Laien fördern.

"Dies würde die zunehmend populäre und fruchtbare Praxis der eucharistischen Anbetung in Pfarreien und Universitätsseelsorge ergänzen."

Als ein Beispiel dafür, dass junge Menschen nach "Bedeutung jenseits von Schmeicheleien" suchen, zitierte Wilks die Popularität von Dr. Jordan Peterson, der selbst als Agnostiker junge Leute dazu einlädt, "dein Kreuz aufzusammeln".

Der Brief der jungen Australier folgt Briefen von jungen amerikanischen Priestern und jungen Leuten in Schottland , die sich für eine klare, orthodoxe Lehre einsetzen. Die Schotten baten um Andacht.

Zusätzlich zu diesen unaufgeforderten Vorträgen gab es auch Beiträge auf der Synode von Prälaten über die Verantwortung der Kirche, ihre ewigen Lehren zu bewahren und zu lehren. Sie haben den amerikanischen Erzbischof Charles Chaput und Guinean Kardinal Robert Sarah enthalten .

12 October 2018 Synod Fathers Palazzo del Bramante Città del Vaticano synodus@synod.va

Synod Fathers, youth ambassadors, and all the faithful participating in the Synod on Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment, Cherishing the opportunity presented by a synodal church, we humbly pray for your consideration of this petition.
Forming the young, shaping the Church
The young do not want to shape the Church before the Church can form us. The world is confused. And in this confusion, the young have nothing to grasp. We want the Synod Fathers to remind the world that God will only deliver us when we cling to Him in love.

His Grace Archbishop Anthony Fisher recently explained to the Australian Catholic Students Association that Blessed John Henry Newman was a major influence on the fathers of the Second Vatican Council, in their teaching on the dignity of conscience and its need for formation. It is because of Newman that the Catechism of the Catholic Church describes
conscience as ‘the aboriginal Vicar of Christ’.
2

But even Newman saw the risk that ‘conscience’ could be interpreted as any man’s “prerogative to be his own master in all things”.

Without the Church and everything she offers

divine revelation, tradition, community, and reason itself - conscience has no substance. We need a reliable moral compass. For this, the young need to be well-formed in the truth. We cannot shape the Church when we are not formed. Formless minds will manifest a shapeless Church, constantly evading the truth. This formation takes a lifetime, a lifetime the young cannot cl
aim. Newman’s epitaph reads: “Throughout his entire life, Newman was a person converting, a person being transformed, and thus he always remained and became ever more himself.”
Every one of us, like Newman, is a man or woman converting. How could we ever presume to shape the Church, which as the Mystical Body of Christ contains within it billions of lifetimes of conversion, the hopes and prayers of all the faithful departed, the wisdom and holiness of the entire Communion of Saints, and the conviction and bravery of an ever-growing army of martyrs?

Letter to the Duke of Norfolk
, 1875



Like past generations, today’s young will only shape the church when we are ourselves formed. Then we will, God willing, take shape as Christ’s hands, eyes, feet and heart.
Ambiguity
But we can’t hope to take
shape amidst confusion over issues such as contraception, sexuality, communion for divorcees and non-Catholics, married priests and female ordination. Such confusion is borne from senior prelates purposefully employing ambiguous language when addressing su
ch issues, even in the face of Christ’s teachings, the Church Fathers and the clear
dogma of the Church. Such ambiguity is neither charitable nor desired by the youth and needs to be addressed by this Synod. Some of the Synod Fathers wish to avoid a Church
of ‘rules’ which fail to encourage a personal
relationship with Jesus Christ. However these rules lead us to Christ, they always have. We need the Church to explain why and how this is. When the Church eschews the truth for policy-speak, young people are left with only superficial banalities to express their beliefs. Deliberately unclear words are, ironically, relied on and repeated with rigidity. The Church should not discourage young people following its rules in love, nor its priests from teaching them. As well as clarity in language, we pray for an increase in practices which help satisfy the sacramental needs of our bodies and souls - pilgrimages, confession, devotions, adoration, sacred art, music and architecture. The world can be an ugly place, and the outward beauty of our churches should be rays of light in our communities, particularly in the lives of the poor. The times show that the young are searching for meaning beyond flattery. Many young people are enamoured by public intellectuals such
as Dr Jordan Peterson. He doesn’t tell the young
that they are fine the way they are. Though he is explicitly agnostic, he repeatedly tells the
young: “pick up your cross”.

In their hearts, even people who have little faith somehow know that this image, this instrument, the cross, gives their suffering meaning. Veiled in the language of psychology, Peterson explores the significance of scripture unapologetically and at length. But Peterson and those like him have a ceiling. They know some of the truth intuitively, but they do not offer the fullness of truth because they do not have faith. Only the Church can provide real meaning to our world. The Synod Fathers need to accept this mission. The young want the truth, unambiguously.
A worthy Mass and welcoming Church
In his Synodal intervention, Archbishop Fisher apologised for “unbeautiful or unwelcoming liturgies”. In preparing Australian youth for a Plenary Council, his Grace asked us:
how can we ensure that we are praying and worshipping God in ways that are worthy and welcoming?

The balancing of these two concepts of ‘worth’ and ‘welcoming’ is the point of tension for most.
Of course we want our churches to be welcoming to everyone, we want as many souls as possible to be received into the Church. But we also want the Mass to be worthy of the profound claim it is making

that the same Jesus Christ of the Gospel descends to the altar body, blood, soul and divinity, in every instance.

The problem is the debate over ‘worth’ and ‘welcoming’ is limited to what f
orm and what tone the Mass should take. This makes the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass look like a battlefield between the faithful, when it should only proclaim the victory of Christ over death, time and sin. The inescapable truth is that the Mass and what it re-presents is profound. It is no accident
that the Last Supper is part of the ultimate series of events of Christ’s earthly ministry. When Jesus says “this is My Body”, it comes after all the parables, sermons, and miracles which,
although marvellous, only hint at the overwhelming claim He makes at the Last Supper. If it took the Apostles such immense preparation at the feet of Christ himself (and even then
they didn’t quite get it), how could we possibly hope to make the Mass ‘accessible’ to people
today? No matter how much we try and make it contemporary or easy to understand, the Mass escapes us. In bringing the Mass down to our level of comfort, we turn a profound claim physically manifested in a glimpse of heaven, into a weird claim which people struggle to take seriously.
Solution: wider use of the Divine Office by the laity
We can ensure a welcoming Church before it comes to Mass. The Synod Fathers should consider encouraging the use of the Divine Office more widely. This would complement the increasingly popular and fruitful practice of Eucharistic adoration in parishes and university chaplaincies.
Imagine the widespread practice of vespers in the same vein as the Community of Sant’Egidio’s
evening prayer, encountered by so many young people and pilgrims in Rome at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. A warm, candle-lit refuge from the world, passers-by wander in, clueless, are handed a psalm book by a kind hand, and then gently guided by the community in prayer. This could be easily replicated around the world. The Psalms are appropriate for
welcoming people into the Church, as they continuously hint at Jesus’ coming, preparing us
for His awesome claim. And so we can achieve a beautiful and welcoming service, in an ancient Catholic setting. Perhaps solutions such as this are part of the answer to retaining a Mass that is worthy, and promoting a Church that is welcoming?
Conclusion
Newman once meditated on Mary as the Mystical Rose. How did Mary become the
Rosa Mystica
, the choice, delicate,
perfect flower of God’s
spiritual creation? It was by being born, nurtured and sheltered in the mystical garden or Paradise of God.
5

Mary, as the greatest of God’s creation, is a model to all of God’s people, no less for the young.
But as Newman explains, Scripture makes use of the figure of a garden when it would speak of heaven and its blessed inhabitants. So how can we become flowers in the Paradise of God, like Mary? We do not find flowers in the mountain-crag, or rich fruit in the sandy desert. We will not find heaven wandering the wasteland around us. We will find it by being born again in Baptism, nurtured by the Sacraments and sheltered by the Truth in the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church.

The young do not want to look elsewhere any more. We do not only want accompaniment in the wasteland. Synod Fathers, plant us in the mystical garden. Yours in the Lord,
