Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: I pray that you and your loved ones have enjoyed a refreshing summer. As we resume INSCAPE after our usual two-month hiatus, we are reminded that it is nearing its 15th year of publication. We are grateful for your friendship through this newsletter. It is hoped that the writing will continue to evolve positively, with greater pertinence and inspiration for its readers. I have chosen a very practical topic for this month to assist in daily prayerful centering on the Lord Jesus. I have written much on the Eastern Christian method of praying the Jesus Prayer. Giving retreats, especially this summer, 1 realized that so many Christians desire a more deeply intimate, prayerful union with Jesus the Lord. Yet the majority, I believe, seemingly lack the ability to focus on the indwelling Lord Jesus due to so many external distractions. I pray this teaching will help you to become more focused on the Lord. The Psalmist in the desert knew that unless he wa...

THE JESUS PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

THE JESUS PRAYER The Christians of the East knew the power of the name of Jesus. They knew by faith and experience that there was simply no other name whereby they would be healed and saved (Ac. 4:12). Because Jesus Christ obeyed the Father, imaging his infinite love for us by emptying himself on the cross, the Father gave him this name that is above all other names, before which every knee should bend in adoration (Ph. 2:9-11). These Christians fashioned for themselves a mantra whose pronunciation they synchronized with their breathing. Day and night they held the name of Jesus on their lips and in their hearts. They prayed incessantly by breathing in and out the Jesus Prayer, : “Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner!” The unerring instincts of these early Christian athletes of the Egyptian and Syrian deserts, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Church led them to a simple prayer of the heart. Such a rhythmic prayer allowed them to open their unhealed...

PRAYER OF THE HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

PRAYER OF THE HEART Does this Christian form of transcendental meditation on the name of Jesus have any application for us modems in our hectic contemporary society? In Scripture we find the image of heart used to describe the deepest reaches of our consciousness, the inner core of our being, the “focus” where we enter into an abiding, conscious awareness of union with God, the Transcendent Source of our being who is, however, immanently present within us, divinizing us according to God’s image and likeness (Gn. 1:26-27). In scriptural language, the heart is more than a physical organ: “Therefore you shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart , and with all your soul, and with all your strength” (Dt. 6:5). This passage indicates that it is not only the seat of our affectivity or emotions, but also the center of our spirit where we can communicate and surrender ourselves totally in love to God. The heart is the “place” where we can take our life in hand and fashion it for good...

INNER ATTENTIVENESS BEFORE GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

INNER ATTENTIVENESS BEFORE GOD St. Theophan the Recluse, a Russian saint of the 19th century, expresses this early Christian transcendental prayer form: Prayer is turning the mind and thoughts toward God. To pray means to stand before God with the mind, mentally to gaze unswervingly at him, to converse with him in reverent fear and hope... The important thing is to stand with the mind in the heart before God, and to go on standing before him unceasingly day and night, until the end of life... Behave as you wish, so long as you learn to stand before God with the mind in the heart, for in this lies the essence of prayer.

APPLICATIONS TO OUR PRAYER TODAY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

APPLICATIONS TO OUR PRAYER TODAY The effectiveness of such prayer of the heart depends on the intensity of our faith, hope, and love. The Holy Spirit infuses our hearts with these gifts when we cry out earnestly to the indwelling Trinity for them that we may know Jesus Christ, suffer with him, and experience the power of his resurrection (Ph. 3:10). Although we are free to choose our own Christian “breath-prayer,” a holy tradition has evolved through the ages around the Jesus Prayer as the favorite mantra among Eastern Christians. This prayer combines the three basic movements in any true Christian prayer.

ELEMENTS OF TRUE CHRISTIAN PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

ELEMENTS OF TRUE CHRISTIAN PRAYER The first movement is always toward the awesome, transcendent God who is beyond us, unreachable, unfathomable, unknowable through our own puny human powers. His beauty and holiness overwhelm us with awe and reverence. The Jesus Prayer begins with “Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of G0d....” Kyrie , Domine , Lord of the universe, the Alpha and Omega , the beginning and the end of all things that are and shall be. In the Lord all things have been created. Yet he is also Jesus ( leschouah , Aramaic for “Salvation” or the “Healing of Yahweh.’? He is the Life, the One who has come as the Divine Physician to heal us by bringing us the fullness of life (Jn. 10:10). He is also the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah, the longawaited Son of God. Believing in him, we shall be saved. “Yes, God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him may not die but have eternal life” (Jn. 3:16). The second element is the experience before Christ’s t...

INWARD STILLNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

INWARD STILLNESS Using the Jesus Prayer as a mantra, or any other phrase that might stir up our faith to a vivid sense of the presence of God, we can reach an inner stillness that will free us to pray on a deep level. All Christians can accomplish this. For the beginner in prayer, such a technique that centers on synchronizing one’s breathing with a chosen mantra can serve as a means of relaxing oneself in order to enter more consciously into the presence of the Lord Jesus. Then, depending on one’s level of knowledge of the objective Christ, a beginner can meditate in a discursive fashion with greater focus and inner attentiveness to the presence of the indwelling Trinity. For the more advanced, the Jesus Prayer can become a centering upon the indwelling Trinity. An experienced contemplative should welcome the call of God to become even more still and to pray as total presence toward the indwelling Trinity, beyond all words and images. Even the words of the Christian mantra will yie...

USING MATERIAL AIDS TO PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

USING MATERIAL AIDS TO PRAYER We must not be afraid of using material aids to help us focus more deeply on God in our prayer. Material techniques, such as sacraments and sacramentals, pictures and icons, statues, incense, candles, holy water and oil, have been employed since apostolic times. In Christian liturgy and individual prayer we are using these techniques constantly in order to become more centered on God's presence and on the inner meaning of God's Word as it is preached. The charismatic preacher also uses certain methods to hold an audience attentive so that the spoken word can sink deeply into the consciousness of the listeners and move them to reform. Anglicans, Catholics, and Orthodox have always maintained a healthy use of material techniques for prayer, including the sacraments, physical gestures in the Divine Liturgy, the use of bread and wine, oil, and holy water. Should we, then, fear using such techniques for becoming quieted in order to pray more effectively? Per...

LET’S TRY IT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

LET’S TRY IT I would like to describe a method for the Jesus Prayer that you might find helpful. We must never get too caught up in the details of technique but, rather, always focus on attaining the goal of greater unity with and self-surrender to God. Experimentation toward even deeper growth is encouraged. The value of finding a spiritual director skilled in this type of prayer should not be underestimated. Western Christians are too ready to jump into prayer with their reasoning powers, while ignoring their bodies. We begin to integrate ourselves on all levels, including the physical. It is important to choose a quiet place, free of noisy distractions; preferably a place available to us each day at a fixed time. Choose the most relaxed position, preferably sitting, perhaps on a cushion in the lotus position or on a straight chair, making sure the spinal cord is straight with no hunching of the shoulders. Breathing deeply is helpful if we are to move onto a level of diffused awar...

PRAYING YOUR MANTRA [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1996

PRAYING YOUR MANTRA Perhaps you will find the traditional Jesus Prayer formula (“Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God; have mercy on me, a sinner”) too long and difficult to synchronize with your deep breathing. That being the case, choose a simpler version. Breathe in deeply and mentally think, “Jesus.” Exhale slowly as you think mentally, “Abba”. Begin to breathe again inwardly as you mentally think, “Release.” Then exhale as you mentally think, “Your Spirit.” This is prayer of the heart and of the Spirit. You are pushing your consciousness as if it were an empty receptacle to be filled with the infusion of the Holy Spirit by deeper faith, hope and love. I believe this is what St. Paul meant when he taught that our controlled prayer in the mind is not the highest form of adoration, but, rather, when we yield to the Spirit of Jesus Christ and allow him to pray in us by praying in our heart. This prayer is at the deepest level of our consciousness, touching the very heart of God-Trinity. ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1996

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: $B/ 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 October, we see the harvest of all that was sown in spring and cultivated during the hot summer months reach its fullness in rich colors of brilliant reds and joyous oranges. Our hope for the harvest becomes actual possession of the full bounty of God’s gifts in so many of his creatures. When we planted, we hoped that all forms of life would end in a full harvest We begin now to believe that all of God’s bountiful gifts stem from a child-like faith in his goodness. For this month’s teaching I have chosen the topic, Listening to the Inner Word. God so richly communicates with us through his Divine Word, the risen Jesus Christ, and his Holy Spirit Today, many dynamic Christians no longer limit God’s magnanimous revelation solely to the words of Holy Scripture.

LISTENING TO GOD’S WORD WITHIN US AND AROUND US [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1996

LISTENING TO GOD’S WORD WITHIN US AND AROUND US Although God is present everywhere, God’s loving communication and self-giving is not uniformly the same for each of us at all times. God’s revelation is always to be discovered in the context of our historical being in time and space, the present event, out of which the Trinity reveals themselves to us at the same time as they give themselves to us in love. Thus, God’s self-revelation and our recognition of God will always be “personal,” that is, unique to the time and place in which we are being invited by God’s Word to respond in obedience. Divine revelation requires a receiver or a channel to receive the Word of God. Our personality, historical context, and spiritual development will determine how we will receive God’s Word. The Holy Spirit is very “personal” to those whose hearts are open and filled with a docile but firm desire to receive what God is revealing to them at any given time. We must be living continually in the presen...

GOD’S WORD IN CREATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1996

GOD’S WORD IN CREATION God-Trinity becomes a community of love toward us by communicating themselves as one nature of love in three interpersonalized beings —Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This selfcommunication is clearly demonstrated in the gifts of creation. The entire world around us is being created in a process that reveals God’s burning desire to give himself in faithful communication to us through his Word. The world at its interior is filled with the selfcommunicating Trinity. God is filling the universe with his loving Self. His uncreated energies swirl throughout and fill all creatures with the loving, creative presence of the Trinity. “...Yahweh’s love fills the earth. By the word of Yahweh, the heavens were made, their whole array by the breath of his mouth” (Ps. 33:5-6). This loving God speaks to us constantly through his Word in the oceans and mountains, birds and beasts, flowers and trees, all living things that spring into being under his joyful gaze. Nothing that is...
