PAGE 10 ARKANSAS CATHOLIC SEPIEMBER 1, 1991 'q-Iun ," from page 1 had two heart attacks. Born in Aug. 21, 1992, in Anaconda, MT. Hunthausen was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Helena, CI', in 1946. He was appointed bishop of Helena in 1962, a position he served until being named archbishop of Seattle in 1975. The last decade of Hunthausen's Seattle tenure had been marked by controversy. In a region heavily reliant on defense spending, he was an outspoken critic of the U.S. arms buildup. In 1982 he started witty holding payment of 'War taxes" which he said fueled the nuclear arms race. He con- tinues the practice, and has had his wages garnisheed by the Internal Revenue Service. The Vatican in 1983 announced an apos- tolic investigation, led by Archbishop James A. Hi ckey of Washington, now a cardinal, into complaints about Hunthausen's lead- ership. In 1985, the Vatican cited problem areas in Seattle, including failure to follow the sequence of first confession before first Com- munion; unauthorized Catholic-Protestant eucharistic sharing;, use of general absolu- tion; lack of clarity about Church teaching on homo, exnal activity and contraceptive sterilization; selection and formation of semi- narians; on going clergy formation; and undue leniency in the treatment of resigned priestS. Although Hunthausen said then he was "firmly committed to dealing with each and every one" of the concerns, the Vatican in 1986 ordered hnn to turn over some au- thority to a new auxiliary bishop, Donald "Viex point" is open to galest x lJtet .

After a prolonged outcry, the Vatican named a commission of three U.S. bishops to re- view the situation. The Vatican in 1987 followed the committee's recommendations that Hunthausen's full authority in Seattle be restored, that Ahaed be reassigned - he is now bishop of Pittsburgh - and a coadjutor archbishop be named in Seattle. Hunthausen has called for greater con- sultation and lay leadership and a height- ened role of women in the Church. In 1990, he chose not to continue Seattle's all-naale diaconate training program until, he said, women's role in the Church is more adequately addressed. Appointed by Pope John XXIII, he is one of a shrinking number of active U,S. bishops to have attended all sessions of the Second Vatican Council. "I don't have any grand plan for Church reform," Hunthausen said. q don't even have a miniplan. But I think we have to keep raising issues, examining our con- sdences, searching for the truth."
