Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: 0 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 of March this year falls within the liturgical season of Lent. Unfortunately, we Catholics have been brought up to regard Lent as a time of sacrificing certain “things,” like sweets or television, that we usually find rather enjoyable. This year, may we instead discover the true meaning of Lent in the opportunity it affords us to pursue deeper silence and solitude, true prayer and fasting. May it be a time of dying to self-centeredness and healing unto greater life. True prayer will foster healing of body, soul, and spirit. Otherwise, it is only self-absorption and it distracts us away from the call of Christ to enter with him into the desert of our hearts. Discipline and courage are necessary for turning within and descending into our deeper selves. Beyond the habitual, pre-conditioning of our senses, emotions, and intell...

CHRIST-MINDEDNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

CHRIST-MINDEDNESS Lent is a grace-filled time for developing the silence and solitude necessary to remove obstacles and impediments that hold us back from careful attention to God’s Word within us. With courage to learn and a silent, open heart we will apprehend God’s unique Word, Jesus Christ, as he speaks within us each moment in the context of our concrete human lives. Silence has two faces: one heals both the outer physical and inner psychic forces that routinely prevent us hearing God’s Word; the other represents the loving milieu created within us through healing and integration of all our powers. Each facet of silence leads us to oneness with our Creator and with his creation which we are privileged to serve.

DEVELOPING A GENEROSITY TO PUT ON THE MIND OF JESUS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

DEVELOPING A GENEROSITY TO PUT ON THE MIND OF JESUS I once read a story about a fourth-century Christian monk who lived as a hermit in the desert A robber stole from him the few coins he had and fled. A short time later the hermit discovered a few other coins which the robber had evidently overlooked. He rushed off after the thief and joyfully gave his last few coins to him as if the robber were doing him a great favor by relieving him of all of his material possessions. I often ask myself: “But why did the hermit run after the robber and give him all the money that he had?” Jesus taught his disciples about the generous widow who placed her last coin into the temple treasury. “I tell you truly, this poor widow has put in more than any of them” (Lk. 21:3-4). Lent would be a good time to ask ourselves: Why did God give us everything he had in Jesus? Why did Jesus die for us, shedding the very last drop of his own blood? Are the above simply impractical tales about a simpleton monk, a ...

JESUS: TOTALLY HUMAN, TOTALLY DIVINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

JESUS: TOTALLY HUMAN, TOTALLY DIVINE When God gave us his Son to become one of us, the Son “emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave, and became as we human beings are; and being as all of us are, he was humbler yet, even to accepting death on a cross” (Ph. 2:7-8). Jesus, the radiant Light of the Father’s reflected glory, consented to assume the condition of Adam and all other human beings, who by sin had become slaves to their own false selves. Adam wanted to possess his human nature independently of God as though he were a god himself. But Jesus took on the form of a suffering servant He entered into our darkened world, was bom into a bloodline whose ancestors numbered idolaters, kings, prophets, patriarchs, murderers, adulterers, and saints. He consented to be tempted in all things, but he did not sin (Heb. 4:15). Jesus not only taught the world this paradox of the Gospel, but he lived out the basic truth that possessiveness of life, things, other persons, and even of G...

EMBRACING SILENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

EMBRACING SILENCE St. John Climacus defined silence as, first, detachment from concern with regard to all things, necessary and unnecessary; second, as assiduous prayer; and third, as the unremitting action of prayer in the heart. Silence does not come easily to us in our modem age. Today, we cannot easily run away from the physical world, which was nevertheless considered a “very good” creation (Gn. 1:31) by God. It is where most of us live and work and play. Thus, we must encounter and overcome the “worldliness” of our selfish desires through the gift of self-knowledge revealed by the Holy Spirit.

A RETURN TO OUR TRUE, AUTHENTIC SELF [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

A RETURN TO OUR TRUE, AUTHENTIC SELF We do not escape from God’s physical world but we are called, especially during Lent, to a withdrawal from the senseless dissipation of our inner energies and to a movement towards our true self. We are to uproot, with God’s help, the evasionary tactics the false ego uses to avoid confrontation with the true self in Christ. Our lifelong avoidance of such confrontation in apparently God-forsaken inner deserts of our own emptiness belies our terror at completing the journey. Yet, Christ’s call to listen and surrender is persistent and all-pervasive. Primary to our prayer is physical and psychological silence. Is there any time of day or night in our daily lives that allows us such a physical and psychological withdrawal in order to let Jesus Christ speak to us within? This silence becomes an inner “space” where we are able to experience the presence of God. He is love and he speaks to us at all times in the single Word, Jesus Christ And the Word ma...

A CONTINUED PROCESS PUTTING ON CHRIST’S MIND [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

A CONTINUED PROCESS PUTTING ON CHRIST’S MIND Inner silence is part of an ongoing conversion process. It facilitates a revolution within us away from self-centeredness, that spirit of the “world” with its noise and confusion, and toward God-centeredness in the spirit of Jesus and the silence of true love. It is a homecoming and a discovery of our oneness with the mind of Christ. We are encouraged by St. Paul: Your mind must be renewed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on the new self that has been created in God’s way, in the goodness and holiness of the truth. (Eph. 4:23-24) Through our vigorous inner attentiveness to anything from without that might move us to vanity or pride, we enter into a reintegration of our whole being: senses, emotions, intellect, and will. We become rooted in God’s tranquility, resting peacefully in him. From this dynamic serenity we seek always the good pleasure of the Lord and not our own. We return to Eden and to our restoration in Christ. We...

NEED OF HUMILITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

NEED OF HUMILITY We should be convinced that no true integration of all our powers into a consistent, authentic, loving self can occur without humility. And there can be no humility unless the false ego in us is put to death through humiliations. The “best” humiliations are those which arise in a natural way within the context of our very human situation. The “desert” in which we find ourselves daily provides the scene of the conflict The most intense suffering will come to us when we are utterly convinced that we have been loving to others and in return we receive only indifference or abuse. In the very name of following Jesus more perfectly we set ourselves up often for the inner battle to take place. Our very love of Christ may well provide the cause of our suffering of rebukes and humiliations. Often good and loving fellow Christians, perhaps the local pastor, members of our family or religious community, those with whom we normally pray, offer occasions for our greater purifica...

DOCILITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

DOCILITY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT What a difference this Lent would make if we would passionately desire to surrender in perfect docility to the indwelling Holy Spirit! Where the Spirit dwells, so is found growth in surrendering love. Through the Spirit, we learn to live on a different level of awareness. We possess spiritual wisdom that allows us to grasp “the love of Christ which is beyond all understanding” (Eph. 3:19). We begin to live by a whole new system of values. By constant inner vigilance, our values become those of Jesus. We make no rash judgments, for the Lord exhorts us not to “keep judging according to appearances; let your judgment be according to what is right” (Jn. 7:24). The Father is the Source of truth and he has committed all judgment to the Son and has given him the authority to execute judgment also (Jn. 5:22, 27). To avoid Peter’s mistake of trying to urge Jesus away from his necessary suffering and death, our constant attitude must be that of young Samuel: “Speak...

PASSING NOW THROUGH PURGATORY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

PASSING NOW THROUGH PURGATORY Yesterday, I received a letter from a young professional woman in her thirties who works on Wall Street. I share with you her thoughts: I feel a very real need (probably for the first time in my life) to use this Lenten season as an opportunity to work toward obtaining purgatory. For the past few months I’ve been feeling very burdened by my past sins, even though I’ve confessed them. While I realize that I can never make up for past sinful behavior and poor choices. I want to find favor with God so that I won’t end up spending eternity without him. I don’t know where to begin. Would you please help me?

COMING HOME [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

COMING HOME Are we ready to embrace this grace-filled time of Lent in a spirit of true repentance? St. Isaac the Syrian of the seventh century wrote the following: At every moment of the four and twenty hours of the day, we are in need of repentance.... Repentance, in its real practical sense, is the continual, mournful supplication in contrite prayer, offered to God for the forgiveness of previous sins; and petition to be guarded against future ones. ( Treatises) Repentance is grace beyond grace. It is the gate of mercy which is opened to all who seek it Through this gate we must go to find divine mercy. Our fear of losing God must be inspired by our love of God’s goodness and passionate love through the Trinity’s intimate indwelling of us.

TRANSFORMATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1997

TRANSFORMATION Fear of our past sins and of God’s condemnation can actually lead us to absolute, childlike abandonment to God in pure trust of his infinite love as manifested by Jesus Christ and attested to us through the indwelling Holy Spirit. The Trinity —Father and Son and Holy Spirit—live in us with all their power and infinite love. God the Father through the risen Lord Jesus shares even now eternal life with us. We breathe the paschal victory of Christ already even though we find ourselves surrounded still by the powers of darkness. Therefore, “nothing that exists, nothing still to come....can ever come between us and the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rm. 8:39). The world no longer has any power over us!

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

Dear Friends, o;> AU “ 6 m? May the joy of our risen Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all through the Easter season! We have tried in our Lenten journey to purify our hearts from all self-centeredness. During this month of April we are privileged to move from weeping and mourning, fasting and seeking, into compassionate love for others, just as God is compassion to us in our brokenness. We respond to the new life offered us by Jesus risen as we celebrate the joy of his resurrection. In early Christianity the resurrection of Christ was the basis for Christian living. Belief in it was regarded as a prerequisite of salvation. For many Christians today the fact of Jesus’ resurrection is merely a historical truth based in tradition to which they mentally assent. Those truly living out the resurrection in their daily lives unfortunately comprise the minority. These “poor in spirit” enter into a world of non-objectiv...

RESURRECTION: THE FIRST DAY OF ETERNITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

RESURRECTION: THE FIRST DAY OF ETERNITY Our living faith is based on an acceptance of the experience of the first Christian communities. Throughout the Gospels witness is borne not only to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but also to his transforming pow er. His followers are converted and molded by his Spirit into a sharing community' of people who love one another as he loved them (Jn. 15:12). Faith in one risen from the dead who dwells in the members of his Body is an absurdity', according to the “wisdom” of the world (1 Cor. 2:7-9). Belief in Jesus risen calls for a loving response as his Spirit continually reveals him living within the heart of each believer. The ongoing experience of sharing in the risen life of Jesus Christ within the context of our everyday lives should fill us with excitement and joy.

FROM LIFE ETERNAL TO MORE ABUNDANT LIFE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

FROM LIFE ETERNAL TO MORE ABUNDANT LIFE We are to respond with joy and peace as we move continually from life eternal to more abundant life (Jn. 10:10). Death and sin are obliterated as we experience in the “sacrament of the present moment” the burning love of God almighty, three persons in a oneness of love for us as individuals and as members of the total Christ. It is our experience of God’s love daily that conquers all deathdealing elements in our lives and in our world. His love, manifested by the Holy Spirit, leads us into anew oneness with him that is a sharing already in God’s eternal life. In such anew life nothing else really matters, or rather, everything matters, but in anew and exciting way. St. Paul summarizes this truth: So there is nothing to boast about in anything human: Paul, Apollos, Cephas, the world, life and death, the present and the future, are all your servants. You belong to Christ and Christ belongs to God. (1 Cor. 3:20-23)

THE RENEWING POWER OF LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

THE RENEWING POWER OF LOVE True Christianity is a response in love to the ever-present love of God. We experience that love as we die to the distortion of our own reason and open to the ultimate wisdom of Christ crucified, risen, and exalted in glory. A symbol of the clash between human reason and the renewing power of God’s love is found in Dostoevsky’s novel, Crime and Punishment . Raskolnikov, a pseudo-superman, believes that he conceived the perfect murder of an elderly woman. As he lives out his sentence for murder in Siberia, his love for a former prostitute allows him to move beyond his self-centered rationalism to accept her love in humble faith and, in turn, to love others. Love conquers theory. In his novel’s conclusion, Dostoevsky realistically grasps the mystery of love and suffering that leads to new life. He comments on the hero’s readiness to serve out his seven-year sentence which, in the light of shared love, seemed only seven days: “He did not know that the new lif...

A CALL TO LOVE THE ENTIRE WORLD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

A CALL TO LOVE THE ENTIRE WORLD The concept of “immortality” conveys to most of us the negative ideal of never dying. A sharing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, on the other hand, is a call to love others as we release fear and isolation in the experience of God’s burning, infinite love for us. How long it takes us to fully accept the truth that God cares for us infinitely and intimately, that Jesus risen inhabits us and loves us constantly with the love of his Father, manifested once and for all in his dying for us on the cross! Let us apply the mystery of Christ risen to our daily lives, beginning with this issue’s title, “Resurrection: The First Day of Eternity.” As we de-objectivize the truth of Jesus’ resurrection, we must strive to recapture the vision found in the New Testament and other early Christian writings: Today is always becoming the first day of eternity. Now is the moment of salvation, as Paul taught (2 Cor. 6:2), and is the only time and place in which we are t...
