CALLED TO BE FREE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

CALLED TO BE FREE St. Paul insists “you were called to freedom” (Ga. 5:13). We are not bom free but are called by God daily as his dear children to enter into a process of continued growth in freedom measured by the love we have for each other and for God. We are called not to feel “saved” but to experience an absolute freedom in communion with the Trinity. The German poet Schiller says “man is free and he was bom in chains.” Our chains break when we respond to God’s call. The liberation to which we are called is a process whereby we cooperate with God’s grace to be delivered from the forces of “Sin,” “Death,” and “Flesh” (St. Paul’s metaphors) that hold us in slavish bondage.

CHOOSE LIFE, NOT DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

CHOOSE LIFE, NOT DEATH liberation sets us on the path to becoming truly “human.” To be human we must become the unique person we were meant to be in God “according to the image and likeness” (Gn. 1:26-27) that is Jesus Christ. Two divergent paths always confront us. On one we choose by the “flesh,” out of selfishness or self-love. On the other we surrender to the Spirit of the Risen Lord Jesus and move into true freedom. The degree of freedom we attain must be measured by a process of continued growth whereby we accept our beautiful self in the redeeming love of Jesus and become empowered to love others. We now live and love in Jesus Christ through his Holy Spirit by unselfishly giving ourselves to God and neighbor. If our love for God is authentic gift from the deepest core of our being, it must be concretized by our freedom to live unselfishly toward those who come into our lives. Such freedom is a true conversion in which we regard others as unique persons, worthy of our respect,...

A DIAPHANY OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

A DIAPHANY OF GOD For truly free, Spirit-filled Christians the dichotomy between secular and sacred, holy and profane dissolves. The Holy Spirit allows the open-hearted to penetrate God’s meaning at deeper levels in Holy Scripture (Heb. 4:12). One listens to the Spirit speak in each event and each relationship. One begins to experience the liberating power of God as aggressive moods and violent attitudes yield to the loving movement of the Spirit. God’s beauty in each flower, in the seasons, in the smile of a baby, in the etched face of an old man is experienced deeply. Meaning beyond rationality for human suffering, crime, war, and all evil perpetrated against the defenseless is understood. In the words of Teilhard de Chardin, “Jesus Christ shines diaphanously through the whole world.” God-Trinity is no longer an object or abstraction. The Holy Spirit has effected and continues to effect an ever-increasing inner communication and interpenetration between the indwelling Trinity and ...

CHRISTIAN MORALITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

CHRISTIAN MORALITY We are to listen attentively under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to the living Word, Jesus Christ, within us. The Spirit reveals to us God’s will through the fabric of our daily life, our family, our larger community, the Church, the whole human race. In particular we respond to the living Word within us through the illumination of the Holy Spirit. The norm for right conduct can never be merely an extrinsic law or our own rational way of guiding our conduct. It is a response to the living Word in us and a response to the Holy Spirit speaking also within the Church through Tradition and the teaching body, empowered by the same Spirit of Jesus to instruct us without error. Finally, it is a response to our union with others experienced in the Eucharist which becomes the model of our larger union with all human beings. Jesus Christ did not give us a highly involved moral system and St. Paul, along with the other New Testament writers, confirms it: “....the law of th...

LOVE OF NEIGHBOR [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

LOVE OF NEIGHBOR True freedom is self-determination in the inmost depths of our being. It is opposed to every kind of external determination which is a force of compulsion from without or from within ourselves. We enter into true selfdetermination only when we touch God’s Spirit within our heart who releases our own spirit to lovingly move in freedom toward others. True self-determination and selfgiving love to others become synonymous and are the freeing work of the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love (Ga. 5: 22). The basis for true love of other human beings is always the love of God that is experienced within our spirits. This love is not only the work of the Holy Spirit; it is the Holy Spirit! He is the applied love of the crucified Jesus, now risen and living within us by the indwelling Spirit. Jesus is one with the heavenly Father, living within us and loving us eternally and immutably. In prayer, the Spirit comes to our spirit and bears united witness that we are tru...

SIGNS OF OUR AUTHENTIC SELF [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

SIGNS OF OUR AUTHENTIC SELF We begin to live on anew level of true freedom. We perceive ourselves in anew light. We walk with inner dignity because of what Christ Jesus has accomplished. “We are God’s work of art, created in Christ Jesus to live the good life as from the beginning he had meant us to live it” (Eph. 2: 10). We perceive other human beings differently. It is no longer with our own human perception, distorted by sin and ignorance of our true being in Christ, that we view others. We now are able to see “inside” the same world we have always only known extrinsically. We see that all creatures are loved infinitely by God, even though they might not have experienced that same Spirit of love within themselves. We understand that we really are one with others. We are all related as members of Christ’s Body. How then could we harm ourselves? And how can we judge others who in their ignorance do not realize their true identity in Christ Jesus? Love becomes, therefore, not an act...

THE SIGN OF TRUE DISCIPLESHIP [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1996

THE SIGN OF TRUE DISCIPLESHIP The sign, Jesus said, that we are his disciples, that we are part of him, that he and his Father dwell within us, is our love for one another as he loves us. We are called as free children of God to love all, even our enemies, as the only begotten Son of God loves all. When we understand this as no mere moral virtue but as a freeing of ourselves in total spiritual submission to God, then we will be grasped into the loving embrace of his Spirit that lives and operates within us as his personalized Love. True freedom can never be license to do whatever we wish on a body or soul level. It consists in utter submission as our spirit conforms our relationships to the authority of the Spirit. And you too have been stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit of the Promise, the pledge of our inheritance which brings freedom for those whom God has taken for his own, to make his glory praised. (Eph. 1:13-14) We are to live as authentic Christians in an environment o...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: - % 3 , 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! The month of May dissolves the dull overcast of long, dreary, winter days into bright, warm sky with dazzling sunshine to warm our bodies and lift our spirits. All of nature bursts forth into new and fresh forms of life, into verdant greens and spangled colors. We feel alive! Even young again! Easter allows us to live out Christ’s death and resurrection. May brings us to the beautiful feast of the Ascension and to the Giver of Christ’s new resurrectional life, the Holy Spirit May also draws us into a deeper devotion to Mary, our heavenly Mother and intercessor. I feel we all need to recapture the true meaning of the glorious feast of the Ascension. We have in the past pictured Jesus as flying upward on a cloud, returning to his heavenly Father. That image leaves us feeling somewhat deserted as we wait for his retur...

A NEW VIEW OF OUR LORD'S ASCENSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

A NEW VIEW OF OUR LORD'S ASCENSION “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death and granting life to those in the tomb!” With a triumphant shout we proclaim Christ’s victory over sin and death and his glorification as the “new Adam.” He who was dead is now alive and holds the keys of the kingdom of death (Rv. 1:18). Each year at Easter we are all invited to celebrate our shared victory with Christ over sin and death in our lives. Perhaps we can enter more deeply into the symbols of Christ’s resurrection and ascension by moving beyond the limited words and images of Scripture and our Church’s traditional celebration of these two pivotal feasts.

JESUS ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

JESUS ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN Have you noticed how your understanding and participation in the great mysteries of our Christian faith, such as the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ, and the outpouring of his Spirit in Pentecost, have radically changed as your prayer became more contemplative and less cerebral? As you learn to surrender the subject-object dialogue between yourself and your image of God as outside yourself, you learn to enter more deeply into the mystery of God’s intimate presence in a different experience of time and space. This mystery of Christ’s saving presence is opened to us through symbols whereby we can “touch” God. Our images of Christ in the tomb, rising as his soul returns and enters into his dead body, yield to anew experience of Christ dying, rising, and ascending into glory at his Father’s right hand. These mysteries begin to impact our lives in anew and exciting way. The great feasts of our salvation through Christ become our own personal celebr...

THE WORLD OF RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

THE WORLD OF RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS The language of feasts such as Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost, opens us up to a world of symbols, the keys to God’s real world. Symbols are the signposts that lead us into communication with the living, invisible Trinity. They are “meta-rational” signs of an interior world that is very real, but whose existence will always remain closed to us unless we can learn to pray with them, inspired by the Holy Spirit. Carl G. Jung has pointed out that the impoverished West has lost the ability to live with myths and symbols, the archetypal models implanted in our unconscious whereby we can commune with the invisible world of the Transcendent Absolute. In a dehumanized, rationalistic world we are rich in technique but poor in intuition. We are weak in “anima” (receptivity to the inner voice), but strong in “animus” (activity) in our prayer. Yet we are beginning to react against such a black-and-white understanding and limited experience of true Christianity, a...

LITURGICAL FEASTS AS SYMBOLS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

LITURGICAL FEASTS AS SYMBOLS Let us now try to “de-objectivize” the elements of the Ascension that we have held for so long as literal. Rather than diminishing the feast it will highlight the truth of it and allow us to share in its riches. Our traditional understanding of the Ascension has Jesus standing on Mount Olivet ten days before Pentecost, bidding farewell to his disciples for the last time. Our imagination has Jesus literally lifting off from earth as he is raised upward toward the heavens. This scene can leave us with mixed and confused emotions. We experience the sadness of the disciples at “losing” Jesus, but also the joy in his promise of the Holy Spirit. Thus, the Resurrection is first in a series of liturgical feasts representing historical events that are statically separated by a specific number of days. However, the New Testament writings, the tradition of the early Church, and early Eastern liturgies reveal the feast of the Ascension as decidedly linked to that of...

VARIOUS MEANINGS OF THE FEAST OF THE ASCENSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

VARIOUS MEANINGS OF THE FEAST OF THE ASCENSION In studying scriptural and liturgical accounts of the Ascension we discover two essential elements that are not contradictory. First, we find that the biblical texts predominantly refer to the exaltation of the risen Jesus Christ in all his humanity. However, they also refer to the total Christ, representing the entire human race, as exalted and lifted up into the inner life of the Trinity. This is our feast too! Our “meta-historical” encounter with the exalted Christ should greatly impact our lives. Another element of this feast to be considered is our notion of the visible “ascent” of Jesus, apparently witnessed by his disciples. This is graphically described by St. Luke in his introduction to the Acts of the Apostles (1:9-11). Luke’s intention is clearly symbolic: Jesus’ departure from his earthly existence is definitive in order to accentuate his new and more important existence as risen. Jesus now exists forever in this world of ou...

HUMANITY OF JESUS IS EXALTED [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

HUMANITY OF JESUS IS EXALTED The Church teaches that the historical Jesus of Nazareth, son of Mary, totally human and totally divine, was crucified on the cross, rose from the dead, and was exalted by the Father into glory (Ph. 2:8), all in meta-historical time, in the timelessness of God’s eternal now. He entered into anew plane of existence in relation to us and this material world. His corruptible humanity was “exalted” and brought into the very life of the Trinity. Through these events, humanity was divinized. A part of our physical world is now and forever inserted into anew transformation to share in God’s glory, in his Trinitarian life. We rejoice in such a feast day! Through the outpouring of his Holy Spirit we too share his resurrection and ascension. Our human existence has been penetrated by God’s Spirit of love and so escapes the ravages of sin and death. Jesus, the “first to be bom from the dead” (Col. 1:18), can now share his glory and exaltation with us.

A NOW RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

A NOW RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION Father Pierre Benoit, O. P., professor of New Testament at the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, explains the Church’s teaching of the Resurrection and Ascension accounts in the light of symbolic image: The essential teaching of Scripture which is to be retained by our faith is that Christ through his Resurrection and Ascension departed from this present world, corrupted by sin and destined for destruction, and he entered anew world where God reigns as master and here matter is transformed, penetrated and dominated by the Spirit. It is a world that is real with a physical reality, like Christ’s body itself, and which therefore occupies a “place”, but a world which exists as yet as a promise or in its embryo, the single risen body of Christ, and which will be definitively constituted and revealed only at the end of time when a “new heaven” and new earth are to appear. (Jesus and Gospel, Vol. 1; pp. 252-253) What happened to Jesus in his resurrection and as...

THE UNITY AND UNIQUENESS OF THE LITURGICAL FEASTS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

THE UNITY AND UNIQUENESS OF THE LITURGICAL FEASTS In the theology of the Johannine writings, of St. Paul, in the Epistle of the Hebrews, and even in the Gospels of Luke, Matthew, and Mark, the Ascension and the Resurrection of Jesus form a unity. In early Christian kerygma, or preaching, about the historical Jesus to converts, Jesus is raised from the dead by the Father and at the same time exalted in full glory and given full power to release God’s Spirit upon his disciples. Paul’s teachings are clear on the unity of Christ’s resurrection and exaltation. The most primitive account of Jesus’ bodily resurrection is Paul’s, that of post-resurrectional appearances to the disciples (1 Cor. 15:3-8). By stressing the witness accounts of Jesus’ appearances in bodily form, he accentuates the continuity of the historical Jesus with the New Adam, the risen Lord of the universe. What has happened to Jesus, as the “first cell” of anew world, is in a way already happening to you and me and to th...

A POWERFUL INTERCESSOR AND HIGH PRIEST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1996

A POWERFUL INTERCESSOR AND HIGH PRIEST Much of the language used to describe Christ’s ascension is borrowed by the writers of the New Testament from cultic language of the Temple in Jerusalem. This is especially prominent in Hebrews. Jesus is exalted in glory and thus reaches the fullness of his kingly ministry as eternal High-Priest, interceding with the fullness of power on our behalf. Jesus ascends to the true temple, the presence of God, to perform his priestly service and by offering his own blood to seal the New Covenant he is exalted in power and glory. (Heb. 9:11-12). Ascension belongs to us as a great feast for it is God’s declaration through the first Christian community that even now we can share in Jesus’ exaltation and glorification since our most powerful intercessor stands in his humanity and divinity before the throne of the heavenly Father, always offering himself on our behalf. With Jesus who now intercedes for us before the Father, we are gathered up into a onenes...
