Lyke of Cleveland (L) meets ' with priests of the Archdiocese of Atlanta after being named apostolic administrator of the archdiocese. sadness expressed, By Carl Eifert Washington (CNS) - Bishops around the country expressed shock and sad- ness over the revelation that Archbishop Eugene A. Marino of Atlanta resigned because of a two-year relationship with a 27- year-old woman. "I guess I'm run- ning through a whole gamut of emotions - shock, embarrass- ment, disappoint- ment, a little bit of anger," Auxiliary Bishop J. Terry Steib of St. Louis told Catholic News Service in a telephone inter- view Aug. 2. He said he felt an- ger because he be- lieved "I should have done more-was I helpful enough?" He said he was referring to reports of Arch- bishop Marino's health problems and had not been aware of the archbishop's relationship with Ms. Long. Auxiliary Bishop Carl A. Fisher of Los Angeles, like Bishop Steib one of 15 black Catholic bishops in the U.S., commented, "The Bible and the world are filled with people who have used their failures as building blocks for a better future." "I am just really saddened at the whole affair," he said. Fisher said he was praying for Arch- bishop Marino and that "African- P FALL St. Scholastica Center PROGRAMS / RETREATS SEPTEMBER 28 -B0 "Spirituality ofThomas Merton" The retreat will dwell on the writings and prac- tices of Thom~ Merton.

Jesus, he said, worked with people who were considered consistent failures, "but he never treated them as failures; he treated them with respect." To their "total amazement," the bishop added, "they heard that God loves them at their very worst." Cardinal James A. Hickey of Wash- ington, whom Archbishop Marino served as auxiliary bishop for 14 years, said in a statement that on "countless occasions we have experienced his pas- toral concern and compassion." "Now it's for us to respond with simi- lar compassion to the archbishop in this time of difficulty and sadness," the car- dinal continued. "As the family of faith, we assure Archbishop Marino of our heartfelt prayers, steadfast friendship and loving concern." who contend that the personal being made public today should been made public earlier. Under circumstances, however, there to be no way to do that, and I thoughtful people will agree." In Washington, where Marino previously served as an church historian Msgr. John said his first thought was, "There another hero." Ellis immediately added that comment should not be "a negative judgment against the archibishop." He expressed admiration for and said, "Hereabouts we never a negative remark about him. He isi in spite of this, a very holy man" Phili ine "Marino," from page 1 Lccording to news reports, in 1987 Ms. ong had filed a paternity suit against a priest in the neighboring Diocese of Savannah. After WAGA reported that the archbishop had resigned because of his relationship with Long, Lyke confirmed the news to the Atlanta Journal and Constitution. "The only additional information I can offer is to state that the relation- ship has ended," Lyke said. Marino, 56, was installed as arch- bishop of Atlanta in May 1988. He was the first black archbishop in the United States. Widely recognized as a top leader of U.S. black Catholics, he was frequently a featured speaker at re- gional and national black Catholic gatherings. In his July 10 statement announcing his resignation, Marino had cited severe stress and the need for "an extended period of spiritual renewal, psycho- logical therapy and medical supervi- sion." He had been undergoing medical treatment since May, when he suffered chest pains and exhaustion during a trip to New York. In his statement at the press confer- ence Lyke said, "There will be those victims Baltimore - Catholic Relief has committed an additional for earthquake relief in the as intense aftershocks and roads continue to hamper in the s tricken region of Luzon.
