Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all through this season of Lent. As you read this March issue of INSCAPE,you will be well into the liturgical season of Lent. The Church,under the guidance of the Holy Spirit,calls all of Christ's disciples to enter into the spiritual desert of our "hearts" and through increased prayer,fasting and works of charity, to attain new purity of heart,a new level of conversion of our whole life to God. The prophet Joel presents Yahweh as calling His people to repentance: Come back to me with all your heart, « fasting,weeping,mourning.

ODE TO THE SETTING SUN [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

ODE TO THE SETTING SUN For there Is nothing lives but something dies, And there is nothing dies but something lives. Till skies be fugitives, Till Time,the hidden root of change,updries, Are Birth and Death inseparable on earth; For they are twain yet one,and Death is Birth. The same basic truth is found taught in the Old and New Testaments and in the writings of all Christian mystics that the way of God is a daily cross,that without some dying to self-centeredness and pride,there can be no rise to anew life in Christ. Yours in Christ,

THE LENT OF OUR LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

THE LENT OF OUR LIFE During the annual liturgical season of Lent the Church calls us into the desert of our heart to give special attention to the not-yet areas of our human development. The Easter cycle will highlight the already, transforming presence of Jesus risen and glorified as He releases His Spirit so we can even now share in His eternal life. How important this time of Lent is for all of us Christians to confront the sin and brokenness in us as the first step in a constant conversion process before we can seriously surrender our lives in total humble dependency upon God as our Ultimate Source of Life. What should happen in the liturgical time of Lent of the forty days before Easter should continue to happen in the Lent of our entire life. And the first element of the desert experience of Lent is to enter into the darkness of sin and all other obstacles that we allow to prevent us from becoming the persons God wishes us to be in His Son, Jesus Christ. Let us look at three a...

THE MID-LIFE DESERT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

THE MID-LIFE DESERT I am sure you who are reading this have become aware of much recent writing dealing with adult life-cycles. Drs. Erick Erickson, Kohlberg and Piaget are psychologists who give us either physical-psychosocial or faith dimensions of human growth from infancy to old age. What is important about their proposed stages of human development is that these authors highlight human development as a continued process, as a pilgrimage toward an ever-deepening spiritual reality that demands our self-knowledge of what is happening and our cooperation to move our lives into greater mystery, paradox, transendence, unity, dependence, wondei; compassion, joy, salvation, creative suffering, faith, hope and love. Let us look at three levels of human growth that most of us probably are now passing through or, by God’s grace, will soon confront. The first major challenge toward integration or disintegration comes during mid-life adulthood. This is the time, according to Dr. William Kra...

SURRENDER IS THE KEY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

SURRENDER IS THE KEY Men, especially, (and also women of a strongly developed animus nature) are vulnerable to depression when they are forced to face their helplessness as they are called to confront their unfulfilled lives. Death leers at us as it taunts us with our weaknesses and failures. How are we to respond to such a crisis in our lives? Just as the Israelites in the desert were challenged by Yahweh to break their idols and make Him their sole support, so we are called to take anew leap of faith. Beyond death is there eternal life? Beyond the limits of our finiteness can we really surrender to God as to the Unlimited? Amidst the mounting trials and tribulations that creep out from within our personal consciousness and our unconscious and from those that come to us from others, acting upon and reacting to us and through the vicissitudes of "stable monotony," everything seems so dark! The desert is dry and empty. Where is God? With St. John of the Cross, we lament in our contem...

MIDDLE-AGED ADULTHOOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

MIDDLE-AGED ADULTHOOD Middle age is the period of our life when in our inner desert we reach the mark of a half century. In our fifties there is a greater power of death asserting itself than in any previous stage of our development. This comes through the increased losses we have to suffer in terms of our own bodily sufferings, of the physical loss of loved ones and friends through death, of setbacks as younger persons replace us in the production line of work etc. Simone Weil, the French Jewess, who died from a hunger fast for those suffering in German concentration camps in World War 11, describes this state of affliction when God's presence is solid, dark absence: Affliction makes God appear to be absent for a time, more absent than a dead man, more absent than l%ght in the utter darkness of a cell. A kind of horror submerges the whole soul. During this absence there is nothing to love, the soul ceases to love, God's absence becomes final. The soul has to go on loving in the emp...

SENSE OF SIN [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

SENSE OF SIN Such an experience of our existential ’Void" brings with it anew sense of sin. It moves us beyond a sense of guilt that we may have had of sin at an earlier stage of our religious development as a violation of God's commands. Now sin brings us into a sense of violating our own authenticity by being deliberately false to our inmost being in the likeness of God. Sin takes on the aspect of an inescapable inner cancer, a radical evil and sickness in my spirit and I become aware that I alone am the one responsible. I have turned against God in the deepest reaches of my spirit and now I desperately want to clutch after Him. But He seems so far away. He seems to have abandoned me. Where can I turn to find health for my sick spirit? No longer do we feel that in the area of doing, we have done wrong, but that we are wrong, worthless, false persons. We relate to Job in his stripped condition as he sits on the dung heap considering the vanity of everything. Yet we seem to be even ...

A TIME OF RECONCILIATION AND INTEGRATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

A TIME OF RECONCILIATION AND INTEGRATION In this important silent desert of our lives much can happen in our spiritual life. We move away from being centered upon ourselves as the pivot of all reality. Stretching out for God's forgiving and merciful love, we develop an anima relationship of lovingly listening to God and to others around us on deeper levels of dialogue. Our spiritual dimension is being integrated into the physical and psychological dimensions. We are called to accept more profoundly than at any other previous time of our spiritual development our radical dependency and complete abandonment to God. A mellowness comes over you as you accept all that happens to you with a peace and joy. You begin to believe that, really, all things work unto good for those who love the Lord (Rm 8:28). Wisdom you never manifested before in dealing with problems of others shines through to the astonishment in them of your new-founded maturity. And yet what is happening is the beginning of...

THE HOME-STRETCH [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

THE HOME-STRETCH The last Lenten years of our life before Easter morn stretch from the mid-60’s to our earthly death. These are our "elderly" years and they bring with them their special challenges and call to greater spiritual growth. Many of the problems of the elderly in the western world stem from a materialistic culture that places greatest value and identity of persons on what they produce or do and not on their individual worth as unique persons. Old age can be the beginning of a hell if we refuse to face the challenge of our imminent physical death and give it ultimate meaning by a deepening faith in God's eternal life given already to us to lead us home into a greater sharing of true life in Him. In such an age level with the lack of physical health and social acceptance, we are being called by God to go deeper into our Lenten desert to intensify our faith in God as alone our supreme and ultimate source of all happiness. Retirement from work and the usual routine of activit...

HOPE IN DARKNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

HOPE IN DARKNESS If old age unfolds as a culmination of all other levels of development, then it can bring us through darkness into a deeper hope in everlasting life. We are faced with the realization that we are on the last leg of a long journey. The end may come around the next bend in the road. But Christian hope can flood us with a childlike, pure trust in the loving Father. Such a hope, expressed before others younger than we are, in a life to come can become our greatest witness to Christ as the Life and Resurrection (Jn 11:25-26). You have the opportunity to live out your faith, hope and love in God by living each moment with a joyful excitement and a stretching out in peace toward Heaven as your external home - the full maturity of the seed into the realized fruit ready to be plucked in a glorious harvest and home-coming. Lent cannot be lived without the good news of Easter. So this Lent is a call to enter more fully into the Lenten years of your life. But as you honestly, u...

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1984

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW "My question is:how do I know that I am experiencing God and that it is not merely my own imagination or natural,good feeling that is coming over me. You wrote in one Inscape number,that in true prayer experience you know that you know that you knowjwould you care to enlarge on this." Sr.Josephi.ne;Prince George,BC. This touches on the very important subject in contemplative prayer concerning the manner in which we experience God. What comes to us through God's infusion of faith,hope and love and what comes from our own cooperation to push our own consciousness through God's infusion to an expanded degree of inner awareness that brings an authentic experience of God touching us and we touching God? If our imagination is at work can we not be deluded that it is God whom we are experiencing and not a figment from our own imagination? If we seek overly to analyze and dissect our love-experience of God in prayer,we will destroy the overall love-experience between Go...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: " 2 G May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you. This month's issue of INSCAPE finds us half in Lent and half in the joyous celebration of Christ's resurrection. Throughout our land we are also experiencing in nature the breaking forth of spring from a cold and dismal winter. The flashes of new life are appearing everywhere. I have chosen to tackle for our teaching the difficult subject of interior purifications in prayer,in the terms of St.John of the Cross,the night of the senses. The Church exhorts us during Lent to enter deeper into the not-yet areas of our lives and there bring all selfishness under the love of Jesus' Spirit. In a word, we are to experience that only by confrontation with darkness can light come forth ,*only by embracing the cross which is to lead us to the death to all selfish control over God and neighbor and our material world can we share in the g...

THE NIGHT OF THE SENSES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

THE NIGHT OF THE SENSES Each year we Christians are invited to participate with Jesus Christ in His passion,death and resurrection during the liturgical period of Lent,climaxed by Holy Week and the mystery of Christ's resurrection during the Easter cycle. What we experience liturgically through the Church's rites is to be a continuous process throughout our entire life of sharing within our own human life His experience of death-resurrection. Constant in Christian spirituality is the teaching that there can be no transformation into loving union with the Blessed Trinity dwelling within the baptized Christian without the necessary purification of our hearts of all self-centeredness in order to put on completely the mind of Christ. Jesus had preached: "If anyone wants to be a follower of mine,let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake and for the sake of the gospel,will sav...

CALL TO CONTEMPLATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

CALL TO CONTEMPLATION Now God is calling you to let go of your controlled thinking, phantasizing about God and yourself in mental dialogue and surrender in deeper faith,hope and love to His indwelling presence. God calls you into deeper darkness,the darkening of your own rational knowledge, to enter into anew way of receiving God's communication of Himself in the "luminous darkness" of faith. It is to say goodby to the protection of self-made props in prayer that served you well on a lower level of beginning prayer. St. John of the Cross gives his famous three signs of discerning when one is being called by God to move into contemplative prayer: l.if the imagination can find no satisfaction in or ability to engage in the elaborations of meditation; 2.if the person finds no pleasure in the thought of creatures either; and 3.if one suffers from the anxiety of being distanced from God (absence of God) with a deep craving to serve Him. But God also calls you in contemplative prayer to a...

THE NIGHT IS DARK [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

THE NIGHT IS DARK After the many consolations that marked meditative prayer as a time of great feeling on an affective level of "oneness" with God,God calls you into a more disciplined,more matured type of prayer. God's presence as an inner light or illumination turns to an inner darkness. Affections in prayer dry up,leaving only stark aridity with the desert so huge and you seemingly so lost. With the Bride in the Song of Songs you now complain:"l sought him whom my heart loves. I sought but did not find him" (Sg 3:1-2). God calls you to purify your attachment to the gifts of God as He prunes you from all sensible delights as your assurance that you truly possess Him by such self-centered feelings. He invites you to enter into various aspects of anew way of knowing and possessing Him that St. John of the Cross calls the NightHe adds his teaching on purification of the soul in the various stages of contemplation to the consistent doctrine of such earlier mystics as Origen,St.Gregory...

ACTIVE NIGHT OF THE SENSES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1984

ACTIVE NIGHT OF THE SENSES Jesus taught the need to cleanse our interior which would then affect one's exterior." Clean the inside of cup and dish first so that the outside may become clean as well" (Mt 23:26). "But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart,and it is these that make a man unclean" (Mt 15:18-20). St. Paul enjoins all serious Christians to bring into captivity and under obedience to Jesus Christ every thought and imagination (2 Cos 10:5). This is what Cassian and other spiritual writers down through the ages have called "purity of heart." This is a loving attention and vigilance over every thought and movement of our "heart", the Semitic or scriptural way of referring to the deepest layers of our consciousness and even the unconscious. From a negative side,such ascetical vigilance to uproot any inordinate,passionate desire is a work to be done by the individual person who desires to advance in prayer or in deeper and purer love toward God. For where on...
