Transcript and approval to Sr. Theresa Kane, the nun who dared to speak out to the Pope and challenge him to not turn his back on all the women who looked to him, as their spiritual leader, for justice. A reaction not sponsored directly by St. Joan's was held at St. Anne's folk Mass. Janet Giannoni, liturgy coordinator in that parish and a member of St. Joan's, organized a liturgy of reconciliation. "The purpose," she said, "was to foster sensitivity in the parishoners to the feelings evoked by the visit and to effect healing in those who felt alienation either from the Pope and the Church or from those who felt alienated." Diversity of views is both important and desirable but inevitably leads to the pain of conflict, she feels, and such liturgies do a tremendous amount of good towards staunching the wounds. "Without the relief afforded to me from planning and participating in such a Mass," Giannoni said, "I would still be seething with un- channeled anger and pain." Devlin feels the folk Mass liturgy and the support of the St. Joan's community have enabled her to calm the hostility within herself and to use her anger for renewed activity for equality. A few others, like me, are too tired and disgusted to bother with the whole struggle any longer. Any overtures made now, for me, are too little, too late. But my opinion is the exception; I am truly amazed at the hope that continues to flourish, albeit with much irony, for my sisters. Lynn Jansen is a journalism student of St. Thomas University, working on her second degree. She has five children, ages three to 14. She has always considered herself a professional home- maker, and has been active in Republican politics for many years. She came to feminism about five years ago, and expresses her feminism through her work with the St. Joan's Alliance. Background on various papal-related beliefs held by Catholics: A dogma is an officially defined credo one must adhere to if one is to call oneself a Catholic. The Pope alone defines dogma, although he relies these days to a greater extent than in the past on the counsels of the cardinals, archbishops, bishops and theologians. Such dogmatic pronouncements are said to be ex cathedra, literally from the chair of St. Peter. The Pope is believed to be Christ's Vicar, or representative, on earth and to rule from an unbroken elected line traceable directly back to St. Peter. None of John Paul's statements on the ordination of women, birth control or homosexuality was delivered ex cathedra. Only those dogmas dictated ex cathedra fall under the realm of papal infallibility. When the Pope rules on an article of faith then (and importantly, only then) is he said to be speaking infallibly; that is, that there cannot be any possibility of error because he is believed to be speaking for God. It is interesting to note that not only did Pope John Paul II not speak ex cathedra on his recent trips (no Catholic expected him to) but that even the divisive issue of birth control has never been dogmatically promulgated ex cathedra. These and other current issues are ruled on through encyclicals, or letters to the faithful from the popes, or, even less important in weight by pronouncements. Dogmatically defined or not, these rulings- written and spoken— are received with the greatest seriousness, second only to dogmas, by most Catholics and obviously greatly affect all Catholics, even those who choose to differ with them. One may disagree with the teachings in encyclicals and pronouncements and still adhere to one's Catholicism; it simply makes one's life as a Catholic a little more difficult. - L.J. r—Selective Enterprises Lisa Mach - commercial and residential real estate (co-owner of Plaza I Properties), Judy Doran - feminist attorney, Alethea Dollison - investments and property management, Sandra Hicks - property management and investments.
