The Catholic Church in the United States and Europe has seendeclining numbers both in regular attendance and in clergy and religious life.Scandals have torn at people's allegiance, and feelings of disappointment, disillusion, and anger have become widespread. Church authorities have seemedreluctant to acknowledge or address these problems and have responded withvexation to those who raise them from the Right or Left. "The Crisis of Confidence in the Catholic Church" examines the roots of this crisis in light of the nature of the Church community, itsinstitutional structure, and the historical experiences that have brought it tothis pass. Raymond Helmick, SJ, traces the problems of the Catholic Church far back in its history - concentration of Church leadership on control of the Christian population, a requirement of obedience to their rulings rather thanon the Gospel values of Jesus, the defensiveness and self-righteousness in the face of any criticism. Helmick also emphasizes the role of the Second VaticanCouncil as it brought the Church to an awareness of its potentiality for an active life of faith by its total membership. How will the Church revive? Helmick believes that a new growth of Christianity can come now only by a return to the love and care of its original premises, to the things that are redolent of the life of Jesus. The 'new evangelization' can only be done by living a Christian life, giving an example.
