What affects us is expressed in mosaic letters six feet high encircling the interior of the dome: 'Thou art Peter and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven.' "These are the word of truth and Our Lord's words. God grant that our chief Shepherd in the Church may ever reflect Christ, the Good Shepherd. "Back in the seminary days, we read in our text the thesis that Bishops, considered collegially, are by divine right the successors of the Apostles in spiritual author- ity and we learned that this was not a defined article of Faith, but had the note of being theol- ogically of the Faith. "Why then would one get the impression from news accounts during the recent Synod, that some of the Bishops were almost in revolt, almost in schism over this matter of collegiality of Episcopal authority? "There were disagreements, yes...but not over this doctrine of collegiality. The Holy Father had called t h i s Extraordinary Synod as he himself said, 'to illum- ine the existence and growth of episcopal collegiality in suitable canonical terms ....

It hurts us to read of disagree- ment of Bishops amongthemselves and with the Holy Father, even when there is accurate reporting. But if there were no problems, no differences of opinion, there would have been no need for the calling of the Synod." Mr. Work spoke Sunday morning on "New Horizons." He empha- sized the fact "we need to dream dreams...have visions." He said, "I think Catholics need to have new hopes every- where...a new kind of love, the nonpossissive kind. "We need new horizons. The laity is bogged down throughout the world with pressing problems. We need to overcome these awe- some problems with a new faith and with hope and love. "The Vatican II meeting should have stayed in session longenough to write another decree, a decree on the Nature of Joy. This could have been written with only New Horizons in mind. "This is our Church. The Church is really only the people of God. The Holy Spirit speaks to us all. Give of your spirit to the church." Mr. Work was introduced by Monsignor O'Connell as one of the outstanding laymen of the U.S. He was named by Pope Paul VI as one of 12 laymen of the world, a council formed not quite three years ago.
