Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: u , .. '-3/ May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with you! As we enter fully into the autumn months of this year, we are surrounded by the rich harvest of fruits, vegetables, and grains that have been slowly maturing over the hot months of summer. It should become easier for us to understand and believe in the process of planting and harvesting: seeds fall into the earth and die to bring forth an abundance of new life. We, likewise, die to lower levels of confinement in self-centered control, rising to new levels of loving oneness with God and neighbor in the created world. Our daily lives unfold only moment by moment. Thus, the only concrete space of time we have in which to meet God and surrender to his loving activity is this now moment. I have chosen for this month’s teaching the topic, Contemplating God in the Now Moment, for it is only in our human situation that ...

CONTEMPLATING GOD IN THE NOW MOMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

CONTEMPLATING GOD IN THE NOW MOMENT True Christian contemplation is best described by the word surrender. Contemplation is a continued process of experiencing God’s infinite, self-giving, personal love and our response to that love by the surrender of our entire being to God. Where do we attain to this experience of God’s love except in the context of our daily life, in this present now moment? The most appropriate and acceptable time in which to surrender ourselves lovingly to God will always be the present moment. God’s love for us is constant, infinite, and unchanging. His uncreated energies enfold us with a sameness that is eternal. God speaks to us from his everlasting, immutable, faithful, now momentless moment which embraces all other moments of earthly time. “I have loved you with an everlasting love, so lam constant in my affection for you” (Jer. 31:3). The heavenly Father truly loves us, Jesus said (Jn. 16: 27). That love meets us in our now situation. An uncreated and unc...

THE REAL MOMENT IS NOW [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

THE REAL MOMENT IS NOW Blaise Pascal in a well-known text comments on how we labor under fear of the past or the future and thus lose the only contact we have with reality: We never hold ourselves to the present time. We anticipate the future as coming too slowly in order to hasten its advent. Or we recall the past in order to stop its passage too rapidly. Too imprudently we err in times which are not ours and we do not think of what only is in our power, what truly does belong to us. So in vain do we hanker for those things which are no more and thus we let fly away, without batting an eyelash, the only thing that exists. This is the present which ordinarily wounds us. We hide it from view because it afflicts us. And if it is pleasing to us, we regret seeing it pass. God’s gift of true contemplation is realized through the Spirit’s infusion of faith, hope, and love by which we are allowed to enter into the richness of each moment in adoration of and surrender to God the Father, Son...

THE EVENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

THE EVENT With new spiritual vision we can see God working in all things by his grace, his uncreated energies, touching us and drawing us always into a more intimate union with himself. It is a contemplative vision that moves us from darkness to the full light of God’s loving presence, to the Ground of our very being, the center of all creation. This special vision is a true “unconcealment,” an uncovering of what has always been there. Our full communication with the ever-present and ever-loving God has simply been inhibited by lack of faith. Emily Dickinson expresses well how the “supernatural” is only the “natural” disclosed: “Not ‘Revelation’ ‘tis that waits, But our unfurnished eyes.” God is totally present at all times and is loving us perfectly in each event. Are we present in each event to embrace the loving God? Faith, the work of the energizing Holy Spirit, removes from our eyes our own false masks and those of others. In the gentle security of knowing we are loved by a per...

THE PRESENT MOMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

THE PRESENT MOMENT We cannot become our true selves except in the present moment, that is, God’s gift to us as a sacred “place” to remove our shoes of illusive security and fall down to worship him in the burning bush. “Take off your shoes, for the place on which you stand is holy ground” (Ex. 3:5). It is this present moment in which the faith-full Christian seeking the face of God will find anew incarnation of God’s love. God is again taking on “flesh,” breaking into our darkened world with his Shekinah or infinite glory to pitch his tent with us. Jesus is being “unconcealed” for us since he never really left us. In this present moment we meet God in the incarnate Word, Jesus Christ, through his resurrection. Jesus is caught forever inside matter as anew presence. He touches creation and reconciles it back to the Father through us as we encounter his loving Word in the present moment. The historical time of this now moment (in Greek, the Chronos) is transvected by the eternal now o...

A LIVING, ACTIVE FAITH [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

A LIVING, ACTIVE FAITH It is not enough to open oneself to God’s gift in the present moment. Contemplation is more than merely “seeing” God and worshipping him. By faith we “see” God, get in touch with his loving activities, and then work with him in loving service to effect an even higher transformation. We are liberated by faith from the limitations we so readily place upon ourselves and others. The negativity that insists on stifling our spirit is transcended by a faith that shouts, “I can do all things in him who strengthens me!”

CONTEMPLATION IS PRAYING ALWAYS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1995

CONTEMPLATION IS PRAYING ALWAYS Ultimately, abandonment of oneself to God in the event of each moment brings one to a state of infused prayer by which one is allowed to “pray incessantly,” as St. Paul writes (1 Th. 5:18). We live in constant remembrance of God’s love in each moment. Because the Holy Spirit is pouring into our hearts deeper faith, hope, and love by which we find God’s loving presence and active goodness everywhere, we can thank God for everything. Thanking him at all times, we will be always united in prayerful adoration and praise. “Praise Yahweh, my soul! I mean to praise Yahweh all my life; I mean to sing to my God as long as I live” (Ps. 146: 1-2). You believe that God is “righteous in all that he does. Yahweh acts only out of love” (Ps. 145:17). A joyful, carefree heart is the sign of a truly prayerful attitude: “I want you to be happy, always happy in the Lord; I repeat, what I want is your happiness. Let your tolerance be evident to everyone; the Lord is near....

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

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 always with you! In November we call to mind the three great feasts of All , Adi Souls and Thanksgiving. The year’s harvest is gathered together this month and reminds us that our labors have not only been physical but spiritual as well. The fullness of what we reap in the spirit awaits us in the life to come. In this life we are called to reflect often on the ever-present reality of our growth in union with God and to lovingly serve others. In this way we produce a bountiful harvest of good fruit. Unfortunately, modem Christians seem to separate prayer from work, contemplation from action, vertical relations with God from horizontal relations with people and with all other material creatures. Yet the goal of the Christian life is to “Pray always...] To help us better understand our intimate union with Jesus Christ as Christians and our r...

THE MYSTICISM OF ST. PAUL [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

THE MYSTICISM OF ST. PAUL One of St. Paul’s most original theological contributions was his doctrine concerning the dynamic growth of the individual Christian, the Church, and the entire Cosmos “in Christ.” In this light he viewed Christ’s incarnation as being prolonged in space and time and eventually touching all creatures. He never separated the three areas from each other. An individual who is growing in Christ is helping to build Body of Christ, the Church, to fullness. Asa leaven, the Church is in turn moving the universe closer to its completion of “all things in Christ.” Let us reflect on Paul’s teaching that as we are christified into greater intimate, loving union with Christ we also cooperate in evolving the Cosmic Christ.

TO LIVE IN CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

TO LIVE IN CHRIST Paul had received the central doctrine of Christianity concerning our incorporation into Christ’s own risen life, hence into his very being, from Christ himself. As the Apostle to the Gentiles, he boldly developed this crucial teaching which differentiated Christianity from paganism and from Judaism. With the cross Christ destroyed sin and death. By his own resurrectional life we who believe in him are brought into a “new life.” “The death that he died was a death to sin once for all, but the life that he lives is a life for God. Thus you too must consider yourself dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Rm. 6:10-11). For us to become “alive to God in Christ Jesus,” then, we must be united with Christ as we live our lives in him, with him, and for him. The phrase in Christ is used 164 times by Paul. Usually he implies by this phrase a very real, intimate union with Christ. We Christians through our Baptism are made into a “new creation.” (2 Cos. 5: 17). “Bu...

TRANSFORMATION INTO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

TRANSFORMATION INTO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST The relationship to Christ brought about by Baptism is more than a mere extrinsic, ethical model to be imitated. We Christians live and move in a most vital union with Christ, the principle of all our thoughts and operations. We share in Christ’s own life, that life of the historical person, Jesus Christ, now gloriously resurrected. We are personally “incorporated” into Christ without losing our own identity. Christ lives in us, but we must continue to be further formed in him (Ga. 4:19). As we surrender to the life-giving influence of Christ, we are gradually transformed into his image. The creation of Adam according to the image of God (Gn. 1: 26-28), as understood by Paul, is a mere shadow, a symbol, of God’s true likeness to which he has predestined all of us in Christ. For those whom he has foreknown he has also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that this Son should be the first-born among many brothers and sisters. ...

PAUL’S MYSTICAL REALISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

PAUL’S MYSTICAL REALISM Today the word mystical usually refers to extraordinary charismatic gifts and special religious experiences. These imply a large measure of subjectivity and by their nature are exceptional. Yet, for Paul, the incorporation and transfiguration of Christians into Christ by the grace of his Holy Spirit and human cooperation were not something esoteric or some delicacy reserved for a few chosen ones. For Paul, every Christian who turns away from a sinful past in true (conversion of one’s whole being to God) enters into a permanent union of life in and with Christ. We are true Christians only as long as we consciously live in this union with Christ. We may or may not experience feelings and awareness of this union, but these are not essential to the reality. The reality is attained by faith, as the Savior himself said before his ascension: “He that believes and is baptized, will be saved” (Mk. 16:16). It is the very historical person of Jesus Christ who indwells u...

GROWTH IN CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

GROWTH IN CHRIST Christ’s presence within our consciousness must grow as an embryo grows in the womb. Paul wanted to spend himself in order that the Galatian Christians might grow up into Christ, “....until Christ is formed within you” (Ga. 4:19). Christ’s life within us admits of growth, dependent on our cooperation with God’s grace. From the embryonic life given to us in Baptism we are to progress unto “perfect manhood, to the mature measure of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4: 13). Again Paul shows this growth as a progress in unity of faith and deeper knowledge of the Son of God whereby we come to know “what is the breadth and length and height and depth and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowing, in order that....we may be perfected and bring to realization God’s fullness” (Eph. 3:18-19). The effect of this real union with Christ is the activation in an individual’s life of Christ-like piety and conduct. We Christians are raised to new life by possessing anew principle of...

ALREADY AND NOT YET [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

ALREADY AND NOT YET In the process of growing into Christ we are in a sense what we are growing to be. We can speak of our having already attained the goal because we shall attain it. Our nature is perfected because we have already put off sin in our lives, and yet our nature is in the process of being perfected because we must continue to fight evil tendencies. Some day we will surely arrive at being “daughters and sons of God and heirs of Heaven.” Intrinsic to this process of putting on Christ is that we already possess, as a seed possesses the future tree, the final goal. Thus Paul, depending on his view of the growth process which is defined by its goal, can say that we have been saved (Eph. 2: 5,8), while, in view of the dynamic, ongoing process toward the final goal, he can say that we are “in the process of being saved” (1 Cos. 1:18; 2 Cos. 2:15). Hence, the Christian life in Christ is precisely a continuous process of ridding ourselves of all self-love, of casting off the “o...

THE SPIRIT: PRINCIPLE OF LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 November 1995

THE SPIRIT: PRINCIPLE OF LIFE Paul uses the phrase “in the Spirit” nineteen times, and often the sense is “in Christ.” But more specifically, he applies the specialized term “Spirit” in reference to the divine Power, the Holy Spirit, sent by God through the merits of Christ and his intercession to effect the work of our sanctification or christification. To the Holy Spirit Paul assigns the character, initiative, and salvific action proper to divine person. Paul had discovered through his personal experience “in the Spirit,” the world of the Spirit. This was a “new sphere of life” (Rm. 6:4) and the function of the Spirit was to create this new life. He explained that we had been enlivened by the Spirit so we must walk by the Spirit (Ga. 5:16, 26). Christians were pneumatikoi, spiritualized by the Spirit whose primary function was recognized in the creation of this life in Christ. The possession of the Spirit was not the totality or the fullness of Christian perfection, but the Spirit...
