      We know that our perceptions of good things will end with our own death; but in that fleeting glimpse of the possibility of "something else" being at work in the world, we get a hint -- sometimes faint and sometimes very strong -- that there is something else in the universe besides our own brief and fragile life. Would our relationship have been any different? His more conventional viewpoints included the belief that priests could better serve the church by remaining celibate. The seminaries must face the fact that they are not turning out well-trained professional clergy.

      Are most American Irish upper-middle class and living in places like Chicago's Beverly, as Greeley implies? As I have already implied, Greeley's book rests upon the presumption of a very high, if not all-determining, degree of continuity between the Old Country and the New. Those sessions can go on to midnight, which makes it difficult for my colleagues to catch the early plane on Friday morning. We know that our perceptions of good things will end with our own death; but in that fleeting glimpse of the possibility of "something else" being at work in the world, we get a hint -- sometimes faint and sometimes very strong -- that there is something else in the universe besides our own brief and fragile life.

Andrew Greeleys Chicago book

If this confidence is to be restored, the process must begin now. Hitting his stride, Greeley for 22 years published at least two, and sometimes as many as four, novels a year.

Or are most of them still to be found in neighborhoods like Daley's classically white ethnic, lower-middleclass Bridgeport? He spent sever al months in rehabilitation and underwent intensive therapy, though he never regained full cognitive function.

In effect they are engaging in a game of chicken with the Vatican, defying the Holy See to change the celibacy rule or run out of priests—behavior that, for whatever my opinion might be worth, is immature and self-defeating.

Michael Novak, in his brilliant if at times abrasive The Rise of the Unmeltable Ethnics 1 has recently reminded the American Irish of just how vulnerable they are, as well as how uncomfortable they can be made to feel, on their ethnic flank.

Greeley instead set up his own Catholic Inner-City School Fund to distribute money to the 80 Catholic schools in the city with student enrollments that are more than 50 percent black or Hispanic. We know, of course, that the smile will vanish from the child's face, the sun will set and darkness will cover the earth, and our friends will go home, leaving us alone.

They could not serve in the army or the navy; they could not bear arms; they could not wear swords on ceremonial occasions. Unfortunately the Vatican does not choose bishops for these qualities, though in some cases, I suspect more or less by accident, intelligent, able, and perceptive men do wear the sacred purple.
