ROBERT DRINAN Jesuits and politics Would Richelieu approve By JOHN LEO Newspaper Enterprise Association NEW YORK American Jesuits have been making political headlines lately. Father John J. McLaughhn has become a blunt and prominent spokesman for Richard Nixon, whom he calls "the most moral president we have ever had." Father Robert Drinan, a Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, has been a vocal critic of the Nixon White House. Father Daniel Berrigan, the much publicized poet priest, has outraged many Jews with a strong attack on Israel which has been interpreted in some quarters as a sign of "the new anti Semitism." Each man speaks to a different constituency one a conservative, one a liberal, one a radical. Yet all three are raising some anxieties about the role of priests in politics Most liberals were delighted when Dr. McLaughlin as he likes to be called was the subject of a rare official Jesuit dis- claimer that he spoke for himself and not the Jesuit order. Yet many of the same liberals were outraged when Father Berrigan got similar treatment, only worse he was actually silenced for a time in the mid '60s and shipped to Latin America by his superiors. The action against Dr. McLaughlin has been interpreted as an attempt to silence him, though the evidence is not clear His superior, Rev Richard T Cleary, made it clear to Dr. McLaughlin that he was being strongly requested to come back to New England for a period of "reflection" which would have taken him out of the unfolding Watergate drama. Dr McLaughlin said he was too busy, so Father Cleary simply issued the disclaimer. Jesuits take formal vows of poverty, and much criticism of Dr. McLaughlin points out that he seems to dress very well and live in high style at the Watergate on a salary. Dr. McLaughlin simp- ly says, "if you are going to integrate into a society, you are to integrate smoothly into meaning that if a Jesuit wants to make an impact on Washington, he must expect to adopt the general style of Washington life. Father Drinan, former dean of the Boston College Law School, is less controversial among American Jesuits, but more controversial in Rome The Rev Pedro Arrupe, "The Black Pope" (world wide head of the is known to feel nervous about Father Drinan's congressional career. As a Basque, familiar with the often corrupt alliances between the clergy and governments over the span of European history, he has made it clear that he would prefer to see American Jesuits refrain from running for political office. In this view, shared Dy many Vatican officials, IMFORMALITY IS THE RULE AT WOODSTOCK COLLEGE New York experiment leaves mark on priests NEW YORK (NBA) Woodstock College means something to Catholics It is the oldest and most prestigious Jesuit theology school in America. It lived in isolation for a hundred years in Maryland before moving to New York City in 1969, amid great publicity, to show the world how the new post Vatican Council Jesuits could operate in the middle of the urban culture. Now it is dying. Many think it was a successful experiment, brought to an end because the Pope himself was appalled by the publicity -about Wood- stock's swinging Jesuits the near total freedom, casual dress and easy tolerance of female guests for coffee or dinner Others think the experiment was a failure, that Jesuits to- day are too confused by the rapid changes in the church to make any contribution to the teeming city A few things are known for certain Two of the five American Jesuit theology schools had to be closed. Vocations have fallen off drastically in recent years, and there are not enough Jesuits to fill them. And it is known that conser- vatives, inside and outside the order, maneuvered with Rome to make sure that Woodstock would be one of the two closed. The announce- ment came some months ago. Woodstock is shutting down gradually and will close fully by next summer, though some Jesuits will remain as a loose West Side community with an uncertain future Bob is a 33 year old Wood- stock Jesuit from Scranton He has been a Jesuit for 15 years, but has not been or- dained a priest which means he has passed up or- dination twice He is about to do it again, taking one more year to think about the decision and plans to take an undemanding job, perhaps in a library somewhere, to support himself Like so many Jesuits, he has reported to his superior that he finds celibacy destructive it saps energy that should go into meaningful work. But sex is not the real problem. He wonders if the person he is becoming would or should fit in the Jesuit order He spent a year in In- dia, and was outraged when people called him a mis- sionary "I felt like shouting, 'I'm not an operative, not a cog in a machine, I'm me, and I'm here because I feel called on to help'." His only regular roommate in a sprawling seven bedroom apartment, once fill- ed with Jesuits, is Sam, a 35 year old Chicano from El Paso Sam knows where he's going. He is developing an exper- tise in urban affairs and heading back home to help his fellow Mexican Americans. He talks passionately about the illiteracy and mortality rates of his people in Texas, and what he plans to do in the local settlement house and Pentecostal movement to ad- vance their struggle He is at peace with himself and with the Jesuits bnt he thinks Woodstock may have been run too loosely the sudden and near complete freedom has been a burden to many men who have been taught to do without it. "I entered the order late at he says, "and I know who I am. Many of these guys don'i, and they can't cope They need more structure." Some of the Woodstock men are working hard on their studies. Other are just putting in time, or pouring their energies into outside projects Some are preparing to fit themselves into the old scholastic grooves teaching in Jesuit high schools or colleges either because it is less threatening than a broader project, or because it is the csreer they really want. Fathers McLaughlin and Berrigan are much less threatening after all, Jesuits have been social prophets and counselors to heads of state for hundreds of years But reaching for political office is another matter, and if several other Jesuits followed Father Drinan's example, many would expect Father Arrupe to take some action On a world basis, the Jesuits are involved in all kinds of social movements, and the pull to enter politics brings complications In the Philippines, three Jesuits were jailed when President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law. Another Jesuit is a close friend of Mar- cos and plays golf with him three times a week. In Chile, Jesuits were prominent in backing and op- posing the Allende government Gonzalo Arroyo, a Jesuit, was the head of "the Group of a band of clerics fighting to bring Christianity and Marxism together and shore up the gams of the Allende government. Shortly before the coup, Father Arrupe appeared in Chile and publicly announced he was removing Father Arroyo as head of the pro Allende clerics It probably saved Father'Arroyo's life, but it was an intervention in Chilean politics that helped erode Allende support at a time when a right wing coup was brewing On the way back to Rome, Father Arrupe stopped off in Cuba and delivered a speech which seemed to indicate that Christianity and Marxism could not work together. It was significant because Fidel Castro had previously gone to Chile and said to the out- rage of his anticlerical sup- porters that Christianity and Marxism should be allies in reforming Latin America. The Arrupe actions are be- ing interpreted by reform minded Jesuits as an indica- tion that in a crunch, the order will stand by the right and abandon revolutionary and reform movements, if only to insure their own survival It may be the correct sur- vival strategy, since most re- cent revolutions and takeovers have been to the right, as in Brazil, Greece, Chile But the counter revolutionary instinct goes deep m the Jesuits they were founded to fight revolu- tion (the Reformation) and to perform many early warning functions for the Pope, just as the CIA does for the American presidency Under Pope Paul, the Catholic Church itself has been swinging to the right, Parallel to what has been oc- curring in world politics As long as this trend con- tinues, reform minded Jesuits with an eye toward politics, will probably be un- der pressure from Rome and their own superiors. For different reasons, the order would prefer no more Arroyos, and no more Drinans either.
