Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g _ TH! HKAID IJ, Church moving cautiously toward public absolution St. Andrew's By ANDREW TARNOWSKI VATICAN CITY (Reuter) The Roman Catholic Church is moving cautiously toward public absolution of sins, re- ducing the emphasis on the confessional box and its whis- pered confidences between penitent and priest. Experiments with new peni- tential services, where priests give general absolution (for- giveness) to their congrega- tions after they have con- fessed privately, are already under way in The Netherlands and some United States dioceses. At the Vatican, authorita- tive sources admit that even more radical changes are under urgent discussion. These would permit priests in critically understaffed mis- sionary dioceses to give simi- lar mass absolutions without first hearing sins confessed. But individual, secret con- fession, as introduced by the 16th century Council of Trent, will be generally retained by the church and there is no question of abolishing the con- fessional box, the sources in- sist. The changes, limited in ap- plication, are being forced on the Vatican by modern condi- tions. They are not a conces- sion to radical theologians who favor sweeping reform of the sacrament, possibly re- ducing it to public confession and absolution for whole con- gregations.

Noon p.m. 1203 4th Ave. S. have forced the Vatican to lis- ten to demands for change, and separate solutions are being sought for both, the sources said. One is the critical shortage of missionary priests, whose numbers have not grown rap- idly enough to keep pace with the millions of new converts to Roman Catholicism since the Second World War. The other problem is the crisis through which tiie sac- rament of confession is pass- ing in the Western world, tra- ditional stronghold of the church. Partly because of the birth- control controversy and Pope Paul's ban on the use of artifi- cial forms of contraception, growing numbers of North American and West European Catholics have been staying away from the confessional in recent years. To counter this problem, certain bishops in Holland and the U.S. have, with tacit Vati- can permission, tried to make confession more meaningful by introducing new absolution services which emphasize the community and social aspect of the sacrament. These ceremonies, intro- duced during the last two years, include prayers and hymn-singing, after which the priest publicly grants absolu- tion to the assembled congre- gation. But, first, each penitent must have entered the confes- sional box to recite his sins privately to the priest. He re- ceives a penance to perform, but absolution is delayed until the public gathering. The Vatican has taken a wait-and-see attitude to such cautious reforms, begun on the initiative of individual bishops. The Sacred Congre- gation for the Doctrine of the department watch- ing over purity of doctrine- has not intervened against them. "We warn local bishops conferences not to change the substance of confession, but we are not against communal a Vatican source said. "The Vatican does not intervene; it trusts the bish- ops' conferences." If these experiments are judged successful, communal absolution ceremonies could become widespread as part of the modernization of the church.

A discouraging note was rounded by the Rev. Earl J. "resuch, executive secretary of anadian Lutheran World Ae- on when he noted that the budget adopted for 1971 is ased on declining income this should be of genuine con- cern particularly when lere is so much emphasis laced on world development." The churches have found it ecessary to make budget cuts n the face of declining income, ixed costs and some shift in irogram priorities. Dr. Tresuch expressed the hope that the churches might 'devise some means of augmenting income so that a more responsible reac- ion may be reflected." Resigns post WINNIPEG (CP) The re- signation has been announced of Rev. Louis N. Scholl as ex- ecutive-secretary of the divi- sion of theological studies of the Lutheran Council in Can- ada.
