Let’s face it: Controversy “is part of the lifeblood the Church,” says Vicar for Clergy, Fr Clyde Harvey, and “we need to think about them, talk about them and challenge each other on them”.

Fr Harvey made these comments on August 7 while speaking on pastoral/controversial issues with respect to the “Implications of Hierarchy; Restriction of Ordination to Men; Priesthood and Celibacy” at the annual School of Liturgy. It was held at the parish hall of St Charles RC Church, Tunapuna.
“When we talk about controversy, we are talking [about] what arises as this Church tries to grow, to hear [and] to be faithful to the reality it is living,” he said, adding that the Church tried to see “where is God present in all of this”.
Unfortunately, there was theological discussion in the Church that confused people and gave the impression that “we are losing our faith, our unity and our fellowship”, Fr Harvey said. But he added that the correct attitude “has to be one of openness”.
He went on to state that while the faithful should listen to the documents that came from the central Magisterium of the Church, they should receive those documents and opinions with a firm understanding of their own cultural identity.

It is their misfortune to be poor, or homeless, or black, or Palestinian, or whatever.
