Paul VI beatification highlights dialogue,
Vatican II, love for church
By Cindy Wooden, Catholic News Service
Meeting Catholics from Pope
Paul VI’s home diocese, Brescia,
Pope Francis said his predecessor’s
witness “nourishes within us the
flame of love for Christ, love for the
church and the drive to proclaim
the Gospel to the people of today
with mercy, patience, courage and
joy.”
Pope Francis held Pope Paul’s
witness up to a wider audience Oct.
19 when he beatified him during the
closing Mass of the extraordinary
Synod of Bishops on the family.
With Pope Paul’s beatification
approaching, the 50th anniversary
of the publication of his first
encyclical letter, “Ecclesiam
Suam,” and the 36th anniversary of
his death Aug. 6, 1978, became the
occasion for multiple reflections on
his life and legacy in the Vatican
media.
Although he was not always
understood, Paul VI will remain the
pope who loved the modern world,
admired its cultural and scientific
wealth and worked so that it
would open its heart to Christ,
the redeemer of mankind,” wrote
Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re.
The Italian cardinal, a former
papal diplomat like Pope Paul,
said that while St. John XXIII is
remembered for having convoked
the Second Vatican Council and
presiding over its first session,
it was Pope Paul who was the
“real helmsman of the council,”
presiding over the last three of
its four sessions and guiding its
implementation.
Both Cardinal Re and Pope
Francis repeatedly refer to Pope
Paul as a man sensitive to the
problems and anxieties of modern
men and women, a sensitivity
Cardinal Re said led the pope “to
seek dialogue with everyone, never
closing the doors to an encounter.
For Paul VI, dialogue was an
expression of the evangelical spirit
that tries to draw close to each
person, that tries to understand
each person and tries to make itself

Oct. 19. The Mass also concluded
the extraordinary Synod of Bishops
on the family. Blessed Paul, who
served as pope from 1963-1978,
is most remembered for his 1968
encyclical, “Humanae Vitae,” which
affirmed the church’s teaching
against artificial contraception.

Paul VI . . .(continued from page 1)
understood by each person.”
“Ecclesiam Suam” laid out the
vision for his papacy, looking at
ways the church could and should
continue God’s action of setting out
to encounter humanity and bring
people to the fullness of truth and
salvation.
“How vital it is for the world,
and how greatly desired by the
Catholic Church, that the two
should meet together, and get to
know and love one another,” he
wrote.
But in the turbulent 1960s, it
was not that easy. A 1977 biography
of the pope by NC News Service -the former name of Catholic News
Service -- said, “He described
himself as an ‘apostle of peace,’
but Pope Paul VI knew scarcely
a peaceful day” as head of the
church. “Called to the papacy in
1963 to succeed the universally
popular Pope John XXIII, Giovanni
Battista Montini faced a church
and a world experiencing a period
of self-criticism and upheaval. His
years as pope were most notably
marked by the Second Vatican
Council -- its hopes, reforms and
crises.”
Celebrating the 50th
anniversary of Pope Paul’s June
21, 1963, election, Pope Francis
told pilgrims from Brescia that
the late pope “experienced to the
full the church’s travail after the
Second Vatican Council: the lights,
the hopes, the tensions. He loved
the church and expended himself
for her, holding nothing back.”
A reserved and reflective man
who was trained as a church
diplomat and spent most of his
priestly life in the Vatican, Pope
Paul’s papacy was marked by
public and often bitter debates
over changing sexual morality, the
validity of the church’s traditional
teaching and the changes in its
liturgy called for by Vatican II.
The Mass most Latin-rite
Catholics celebrate today often is
referred to as the Paul VI Mass.
Under his leadership there was a
complete revision of liturgical texts,
something he said was a source of
joy, but it also was a source of
some of his deepest anguish. In
the last years of his pontificate, he
repeatedly repudiated both those
who made further, unauthorized
changes to the Mass and those who
completely rejected the council’s
liturgical reforms.
Pope Paul’s connection with
the themes expected to be raised
at the synod on the family Oct.
5-19 include the encyclical for
which is he is most known by
many people, “Humanae Vitae.”
The 1968 encyclical, usually
described as a document affirming
the church’s prohibition against
artificial contraception, places
that conclusion in the context of
Catholic teaching on the beauty and
purpose of marriage, married love
and procreation.
I n h i s d a y - - b e f o re t h e
globetrotting Pope John Paul II was
elected -- Pope Paul was known as
the “pilgrim pope.” He was the first
pope in the modern area to travel
abroad, visiting six continents in
seven years.
His travels and his meetings
with bishops from around the world
led him to speak out forcefully
against the nuclear arms race,
the starvation of millions of
people while the rich got richer, a
worldwide move toward liberalized
abortion and the wars in Vietnam,
Israel and Lebanon, not to mention
terrorism and guerrilla warfare in
many other countries.
Under his leadership, the
Catholic Church made huge strides
in promoting Christian unity
and formalizing its ecumenical
dialogues, as well as improving
relations with Jews, Muslims and
other world religions.
He was born Sept. 26, 1897, in
Concesio, a farm town outside the
northern Italian city of Brescia.
Known as studious and pious from
a young age, Giovanni Battista was
admitted to the Brescia seminary
in 1916, but was allowed to live at
home because of his frail health.
Six months after his ordination
to the priesthood in 1920, he
was sent to Rome for graduate
studies. In 1922, he was selected to
attend the Pontifical Ecclesiastical
Academy, where the Vatican trains
its diplomats. After a year at the
academy, Pope Pius XI sent him to
the Vatican nunciature in Warsaw,
Poland, an assignment cut short
because of his health. He returned
to the academy and to his studies.
In 1924, he began working in
the Vatican Secretariat of State,
slowly being given more and more
responsibility. At the same time, he
served as a chaplain to the Catholic
Italian Federation of University
Students, which worked to imbue
Catholic students with the values
needed to counter the fascist
student movement.
In December 1937, he was
named undersecretary of state for
ordinary affairs, a position that
made him a close collaborator
of Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, the
Vatican secretary of state who
became Pope Pius XII in 1939.
He worked alongside the pope
throughout World War II and
was in charge of the information
bureau that gathered the names of
prisoners of war from all sides and
forwarded the names to worried
family members.
After 30 years of service in
the Secretariat of State, he was
named archbishop of Milan in
1954. He spent the next eight years
rebuilding and reorganizing Italy’s
largest archdiocese. When Pope
Pius died in 1958, many people
thought Archbishop Montini could
be elected pope even though he
was not yet a cardinal. Instead,
the College of Cardinals chose
Cardinal Angelo Roncalli of Venice,
who became Pope John XXIII. One
of his first acts was to create new
cardinals, including Archbishop
Montini.
After Pope John died in June
1963, Cardinal Montini was elected
pope on the fifth ballot, cast on the
second day of the conclave. He was
the last pope to be crowned with a
tiara; five months later, he solemnly
laid the crown on the altar of St.
Peter’s Basilica as a sign of his
renunciation of “human glory and
power.” Cardinal Francis Spellman
of New York made arrangements
for it to be transferred to the
United States, where the crown
is preserved at the Basilica of the
National Shrine of the Immaculate
Conception in Washington.

Revisiting the argument from motion
By Very Rev. Robert Barron
One of the unintended but
happy consequences of the
emergence of the new atheism
is a renewed interest in the
classical arguments for God’s
existence. Eager to defend the
faith that is so vigorously attacked
today, Catholic apologists and
evangelists have been recovering
these rational demonstrations of
the truth of God; and the atheists,
just as eager to defend their
position, have entered into the
fray. In the process, these ancient
arguments, long thought by many
to be obsolete, have found a new
relevance and have been brought
to greater clarity through the
give and take of both critics and
advocates.
Thomas Aquinas famously
laid out five arguments for
the existence of God, but he
characterized one of them as “the
first and more manifest way.” This
is the proof from motion, which
can be presented simply and
schematically as follows. Things
move. Since nothing moves itself,
everything that is moved must be
moved by another. If that which
causes the motion is itself being
moved, then it must be moved
by another. This process cannot
go on to infinity. Therefore, there
must exist a first unmoved mover,
which all people call God.
In order to avoid
misunderstanding (and it’s fair to
say that this argument has been
misunderstood for centuries),
several observations are in order.
When Aquinas speaks of motion,
he means change of any kind,
not simply change of location.
Growth in wisdom, fluctuation
in temperature, birth, death, etc.
are all examples of motion, or
in his more technical language,
the transition from potency to
actuality. Once we grasp what
Aquinas means by motion, it is
relatively easy to understand
why he insists that nothing can
move or change itself. Whatever
is in motion must be in potency,
while that which causes change
must be in actuality, just as the
one learning French doesn’t yet
possess the language and the one
teaching it does. Now since the
same thing cannot be potential
and actual at the same time in
the same respect, nothing can be,
simultaneously, both mover and
moved. No one, strictly speaking,
teaches himself French.
But let us suppose that the
cause which is putting something
in motion is itself being put
in motion; then by the same
principle, its change must be
prompted by another. But this
chain of moved movers cannot be
indefinite, since the suppression
of a first element would imply the
suppression of every subsequent
mover and hence, finally, of the
motion that is evident to our
senses. In regard to the negation
of this sort of infinite causal series,
the twentieth century philosopher
Bertrand Russell had a particularly
unhelpful observation. Russell
opined that Thomas Aquinas
couldn’t imagine such a series,
because medievals hadn’t yet come
to terms with the idea of infinite
sets. Nothing could be further
from the truth. Aquinas had
absolutely no problem imagining
infinite series, since he speculated
about them all the time. What
he is denying is the possibility of
an infinite causal series in which
each element in the chain is here
and now dependent upon the
influence of a higher cause. Think
of a pen which is here and now
being moved by a hand, which
is here and now being moved by
muscles, which are here and now
being moved by nerves, which are
here and now being stimulated
by the brain, which is here and
now being sustained by blood and
oxygen, etc. If we suppress the
first element in this sort of chain,
the entire causal nexus would
collapse and the motion under
immediate consideration would
not be adequately explained.
Therefore it follows that a
prime mover exists, which is to
say, an unactualized source of
actualization, an unenergized
energizer, an ultimate source of
all of the change in the cosmos.
Now there are many atheists
and agnostics who acknowledge
that this demonstration is logically
airtight but who quarrel with the
association that Aquinas makes,
almost casually, at the very end:
“and this all people call God.”
There might indeed, they say,
be a prime mover or uncaused
principle but this first element
in the causal chain might be
matter or energy or some such
physical element. Many point to
the famous law of the conservation
of energy and conclude that the
fundamental stuff of the universe
just undergoes continual change
of form throughout time.
In order to answer this
objection, we have to examine the
nature of the unmoved mover a bit
more carefully. That which is truly
the uncaused or unmoved source
of energy must be fully actualized
(actus purus in Aquinas’s pithy
Latin), which means that it is not
capable of further realization. But
energy or matter is that which is
capable of undergoing practically
infinite change. Energy or matter
is endlessly malleable and hence
about as far from actus purus as
can be imagined. A rather simple
thought experiment shows that
such primal physical elements
cannot be the unmoved mover.
Neither matter nor energy exists
as such but always in a particular
form or configuration. In regard to
either, one could always ask, what
color is it, at what velocity does
it move, under what conditions
does it exist? A given piece of
matter is one color, but it could
be any other color; energy is at
one quantum level, but it could
be at any other. Therefore, we are
compelled to inquire about the
cause that made it to exist this way
rather than that. We can appeal,
of course, to some other material
cause, but then we are compelled
to ask the same question about
that cause, and having recourse
indefinitely to similarly material
movers won’t get us anywhere
closer to an ultimate explanation.
The philosophical dictum that
sums up this state of affairs is “act
precedes potency.” The first cause
of change cannot be itself subject
to change.
The unmoved mover is that
which exists in a state of pure
realization, that which cannot be
improved in its being, that which
simply is, that which is utterly in
act. Do you see now why Thomas
Aquinas equated it with God?

(Mt 22:39) This oft quoted phrase can be
deceiving. It depends on an honest love
of self and then transferring that attitude
to your neighbor - and of course your
closest neighbor is your spouse. Don’t

Reflections On
Sunday's Readings
By Jeff Hedglen, Catholic News Service
October 26, Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Cycle A. Readings: (1) Exodus 22:20-26, Psalm 18:2-4, 47, 51 (2) 1
Thessalonians 1:5c-10 (Gospel) Matthew 22:34-40
As I write this, there is a war of words, ideologies and policy opinions
raging on news and social media over the crisis of children crossing the border
into the U.S. from Central America.
The issue is, of course, bigger than this current news cycle and it has
been going on for many years. I have been listening to what I thought was
all sides of this issue and I was not sure what to think, but things crystalized
when I read this week’s Scriptures and saw God’s opinion.
The readings kick off with this from Exodus: “Thus says the Lord: ‘You
shall not molest or oppress an alien, for you were once aliens yourselves in
the land of Egypt.’”
I remembered making a family tree when I was in grade school and I
learned that my family is from Ireland and France. Not exactly Egypt, but
point taken!
In Exodus we read how God hears the cry of the oppressed and that we
had better not be the oppressors or things will not go well for us. God uses
pretty strong language to call those who follow him to be as compassionate
as he is.
Some might say that the Old Testament God is different from the
New Testament God. In a way, they are right. In the New Testament,
God is compassionate from afar, as in the Old Testament, but he also is
compassionate in person -- the person of Jesus.
This personified compassion of God tells us in this week’s Gospel that
we must do this: Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.
These words from God may be hard to hear and even harder to put into
action. But the other two readings give us some direction on how to proceed.
St. Paul tells us to imitate the leaders of our church and God. We should all
read the bishops’ statements on immigration and strive to be as compassionate
as God.
The psalm response shows us how to pray. Close your eyes and say: “I
love you, Lord, my strength.” And while you are at it, pray for all these people
who feel the need to flee their homeland. May the Lord, and we, have mercy
on them all.

wheel, mask making, colorful engineering design, and fall pastels
reminiscent of the work of Van Gogh. There was even a selfie station
with the great artist himself! Throughout the evening, families were
scattered throughout the hall engaged in art viewing, art making, and

St. Ann Catholic school Bartlett raises
money for St. Jude
St. Ann Catholic school Bartlett student
art contest winners
St. Ann students raised over $3000 for St. Jude Children’s Research
Hospital during their “Your change can change a life” week. Students
brought in their change all week to help kids at St. Jude. The money
was to support two marathon teams raising money for St. Jude with
special connections to the school: Team Alyssa Rocks & Dude Dance
and Team ATC Fitness. St. Ann PDO joined in as well raising money
and wearing gold for former PDO student and St. Jude patient Eden.
Team Alyssa Rocks & Dude Dance is headed by two current St. Ann
students who are also current St. Jude patients. Six grader Alyssa de
Jong battled melanoma in 2012 and continues follow up care with scans
and specialists every three months at St. Jude. Alyssa’s cousin and 3rd
grader Tyler West is about halfway through his three year treatment
at St. Jude. He can’t wait to be done with treatment so he can join his
friends in the classroom very soon.
Team ATC Fitness’ connection to St. Jude and St. Ann goes back
many years. ATC Fitness Owner Julie Patterson tells us, “I hold St.
Jude very close to my heart as my daughter Susan McDaniel lost her
battle with Pancreatic Cancer in December of 1992, yet it seems only
yesterday. Susan attended St. Ann Catholic School from Kindergarten
– 8th grade.”
St. Ann Catholic School had three students win the Bartlett Fire Safety
Poster Contest. Congratulations to eighth grader Kendall Craig, seventh
grader Cheyenne Sanders, and sixth grader Ellie McGhee for winning
their grade level award at the contest. Their posters are hanging at
Bartlett City Hall and will soon be sent to the state level competition.

10 - The West Tennessee Catholic
Cardinal Turkson to lead U.S. symposium
on faith and farming
By Jonathan Liedl
One of world’s leading Catholic
officials will bring Pope Francis’
message of faith-based ecology to
the United States this fall. Cardinal
Peter Turkson will deliver the
keynote address and participate in
working sessions at the Faith, Food
& the Environment Symposium, a
groundbreaking event that will
confront the challenges of 21st
century agriculture from a faithbased perspective.
The symposium will be held
from Nov. 5 to 7 on the St. Paul
campus of the University of St.
Thomas.
Cardinal Turkson serves as
the president of the Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace in
the Vatican and is considered a
leading authority on the ethics
of agriculture. The Ghanaian
native has played a leading role in
drafting Pope Francis’ forthcoming
encyclical on the environment.
His presentation, expected
to hint at what the world can
expect from the pope, will be
held at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday,
Nov. 5, in the O’Shaughnessy
Education Center Auditorium
on St. Thomas’s campus. The
lecture is free and open to the
public, and seats can be reserved
at ffesymposium.eventbrite.com.
The cardinal will be joined at
the symposium by other notable
Catholic figures. Five bishops,
including Bishop Richard Pates
of the Diocese of Des Moines, will
participate, as will a number of
Catholic moral theologians and
scholars. Policy experts, such as
Jason Adkins of the Minnesota
Catholic Conference, Dan Misleh
of the Catholic Climate Covenant,
and Antony Granado of the U.S.
Conference of Catholic Bishops,
will also take part.
About the Symposium
The Faith, Food & the
Environment Symposium will
bring together more than 40 leaders
in the fields of agriculture and
food production, environmental
studies and theology to examine
how faith traditions can inform
solutions to modern agricultural
challenges, such as food shortages,
environmental degradation and
the ethical use of biotechnology.
This year’s symposium is
part of a broader initiative called
The Vocation of the Agricultural
Leader, which aims to provide
leaders in the farming and food
industries with practical, faithbased principles that can be
applied to their daily work.
The November event will
be followed by an international
symposium in Milan, Italy, in 2015.
The results of both symposiums
will be used to develop a set of
resources for the initiative.
The symposium is co-hosted
by several organizations from the
faith, academic and agricultural
sectors. Co-hosts include Farmers
Union Enterprises (Minnesota
Farmers Union, Wisconsin
Farmers Union, South Dakota
Farmers Union, North Dakota
Farmers Union, Montana Farmers
Union), The St. Paul Seminary
School of Divinity, Catholic Rural
Life, the University of St. Thomas,
the Center for Catholic Studies
at St. Thomas, the Minnesota
Catholic Conference, the Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace, and
the International Catholic Rural
Association.
