A NEW ETERNITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

A NEW ETERNITY “Eternity” does not begin when our historical time ceases. The life of God is everlasting time and as we live now in Christ, we live in eternity. This “new” time of salvation ( kairos ) vertically intersects our broken, historical, horizontal time, riddled with what Scripture calls “sin and death.” The time of Christ on earth becomes a “leaven” which transforms historical time into salvific time. The fragmentation, alienation, and moment-by-moment suffering of the “old” time is eradicated, though “time” itself remains. A gradual consummation occurs through the presence of the risen Lord inserted into the very broken materiality of the universe. This process of God’s eternal life unfolding is like a seed that already contains the fruit in potentiality. We receive this life in embryonic form at our Baptism and it necessitates a steady growth—with each moment’s victory a preparation for the next conquest “from glory to glory” is required. With the first Christians we cry...

RELEASING THE HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

RELEASING THE HOLY SPIRIT Jesus constantly releases his loving Spirit who fills us with love and allays our fears so that we can enter into the process of becoming living members of the risen Body of Christ. Only this Spirit can reveal to us in any given moment the presence of Christ as risen. The glorified Christ is actually one with us in his power and transforming glory. His Spirit ceases to be for Christ's followers a mere possession or giver of gifts. The work of the Spirit is seen in the ground of Christ's resurrection as the fulfillment of God's original purpose for creation. The Spirit allows us Christians to experience the presence and transforming power of the Kyrios, the risen Christ, to whom all power has been given.

WHAT WILL BE OUR RESPONSE? [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

WHAT WILL BE OUR RESPONSE? Our response to the proclamation of such Good News and to its Proclaimer becomes crucial. It is a measure not only of the fullness of our actualization as human beings, but of the stature of the risen Christ in his final glorification as “God in all.” To enter the risen life of Jesus in the now moment, we must embrace a continual metanoia by way of accepting repentance. More than merely harboring sorrow for deliberate sin, those who enter into God’s life and live in his Kingdom must turn from any form of selfishness. As we realize that our true nature lies in loving unity with God and neighbor, not in self-centeredness, we already participate in the sharing of Christ’s victory over death. Repentance is a movement under the Spirit of love to embrace the cross of dying to one’s selfish exploitation of others and to live in loving service to them. It is a movement from darkness into the light of the transforming resurrection of Christ. Thus, true repentance e...

LIFE IN THE RISEN CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1997

LIFE IN THE RISEN CHRIST Jesus Christ has irrevocably inserted himself into our material world by means of what Teilhard de Chardin calls “the game of the resurrection.” Jesus is like a powerful “enzyme,” drawing all of us to freely accept and ferment in his love. He stretches out amongst and through us members of his Body, his Church, to touch and raise others into a sharing of the life that we have received through his free election. As we turn within ourselves daily by prayer and purifying reflection, we find Christ more easily in our material concerns. Nothing of God’s creation is secular or profane but everything reveals his uncreated energies of love in all. We yield our talents to his direction. We seek to live according to his inner harmony in each event. We become his servants as we lovingly work to serve others. It is possible by God’s grace, after much prayer and purification and loving service to others, to live and move and act habitually out of a conscious love for God...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: AUG t> 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! In the midst of spring now, new life is bursting out all around us. Love is in the air. The nation celebrates Mother’s Day and we Catholics dedicate this month to Mary, the Mother of God and our mother, too. Such a profusion of new birth should inspire our contemplation of God-Trinity in their immanent presence as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who energize every creature, starting with ourselves. They also freely gift themselves to us in all their beautiful springtime explosion of beauty and harmony. G. M. Hopkins, the well-known Jesuit poet, has beautifully captured this presence of God in nature and the need on our part to “behold” that energizing, loving presence: And the azurous hung hills are his world-wielding shoulder Majestic-as a stallion stalwart, very-violet-sweet! These things, these things wer...

GOD’S UNCREATED ENERGIES OF LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

GOD’S UNCREATED ENERGIES OF LOVE Edwin Scott Gaustad in his book, Dissent in American Religion, points out that a great religious dissent is taking place in America and it is moving in three new directions: “Dissenters opt for mystery, seek community, and embrace joy.” (p. 149) He points out that Americans are more and more seeking mysticism over a clinical rationality. The theology handed them for so long has become remote, lifeless, and impersonal. It has been tied too closely with an ecclesiasticism that is “correct” but which does not address the needs of modern persons. On the positive side, he points out that mysticism is awakening the powers of human creativity. One who seeks mysticism is ever ready to be surprised by the hidden beauty that is everywhere in God’s creation. Acknowledging the low level that a quest for mysticism can descend to with all of its self-seeking, Gaustad describes the “high road” that the same quest can follow: Deliberate acceptance of mysticism leads...

A TURNING INWARDLY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

A TURNING INWARDLY There can be no doubt, and it is surely more than a passing fad, that a great many people today are hungrily seeking a more direct encounter with God, an immediate experience of his reality in their daily lives. Too long have they lived a “sacred” life, divorced from their “natural,” ordinary life. The rapid pace of living today, the great mobility and change experienced at work and in families demands deeper, more conscious ways of coping. A considerable grace in my life has been the opportunity afforded me by my training to meet the Eastern Christian mystics of the desert. Their constant teaching on the doctrine of God-Trinity as uncreated energies of divine love always surrounding, penetrating, bombarding us with the gifts of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit has been realized in every moment of my life. Everything is “sacred” because God is a community of love, always as energy, pouring themselves out to us throughout the entire, created world.

OUR BROKENNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

OUR BROKENNESS God has been active as an energy-force in his creative Word throughout all of creation and we human beings can, with our intellect, understand something of God’s presence as loving energy. Yet the real presence of God as loving, gifting energy comes to us only in contemplative prayer when we move beyond our own controlled activity to enter into God’s healing love. The first stage of entering into contact with God’s energizing love is for us to experience our own state of alienation from him. It is inside of ourselves we must go, into the deeper reaches of our consciousness and unconscious, beyond our controlled knowledge that can so easily lead us to illusions and greater separation from God, into those areas of brokenness, meaninglessness, death, and darkness. It is when we have the courage to confront our dark side that Jesus Christ becomes an energizing force of love as he releases his Spirit. In the Spirit of love we can surrender to our loving Father, who dwells ...

THE UNAPPROACHABLE ONE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

THE UNAPPROACHABLE ONE In such brokenness the Christian knows that God is unreachable and unknowable. No matter how poor and empty we know ourselves to be, we do begin to feel God’s infilling come upon us. We also know that we will never in this earthly existence see him face to face. Yahweh does show himself to us as he did to Moses, but it is only his “back” that we see: “Then I will take my hand away and you shall see the back of me; but my face is not to be seen” (Ex. 33:23). None of us ever see God fully. “No one has ever seen God” (1 Jn. 4:12; Jn. 1:18; 6:46). We would need to be also God, part of his essence, in order to know him fully. Only a like nature could comprehend his nature. In spite of the revelation of the Father’s love made to us by his Son, Jesus Christ, we shall never know him fully. No matter how inflamed with his loving presence we may have become both in this life and the next, there will always be some unfathomable about God. This is why the Eastern Fathers ...

YET GOD DOES SHARE HIS NATURE WITH US [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

YET GOD DOES SHARE HIS NATURE WITH US Still, our Christian faith teaches us from Holy Scripture, God’s revelation through his Word, that God in his holiness freely wishes to make us “participators of [his] very own nature” (2 Pt. 1:4). Of all God’s material creatures, only we human beings are an unfinished nature that has been gifted by God with spiritual faculties to communicate with his knowledge and love. We are capable of freely receiving God’s communications and responding to his call to become divinized children of so loving a Father (1 Jn. 3:1). The redemptive work of the crucified and risen Jesus consists in giving us his Spirit of love through whom we may know the Father and the fullness of the Son (Jn. 17:3). Thus we ourselves can become true children of God (Jn. 1:12; Rm. 8:15; Ga. 4:6). This “going-forth” of God, to use Pseudo-Dionysius’ term, is simply grace in its primal sense. It is God in his hesed, convenantual love, pursuing his people as he stretches out his “two ...

GOD-TRINITY IS GRACE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

GOD-TRINITY IS GRACE God is, therefore, grace as he goes out of himself in his uncreated energies to share his very own life with us. We can, then, truly know God and intimately experience him. Although in his Godhead or essence he is totally incomprehensible, yet in his energies he can be experienced as perfect love in self-giving to us. The whole message of the Good News consists in God’s revelation of himself as a loving Father, giving himself to us through his Son Jesus in his Holy Spirit. In this experience of God as free Gift of love, we can know him in his personalized love toward us, and we can cooperate with God’s loving energies to be loving energies toward others. If we do not first “experience” God’s love for us (which is the essence of contemplation), we will never be able to give true, self-sacrificing love to others. And without genuine love toward God and neighbor we spiritually die!

THE NATURE OF GOD’S ENERGIES OF LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

THE NATURE OF GOD’S ENERGIES OF LOVE God’s energies, therefore, are really God-Trinity in their loving relationships toward us. God’s activities can never be divided into those that are “sacred” and those that are merely “secular”; the “natural” versus the “supernatural.” These energies are not “things created” but God himself, who in his essence is unapproachable and simple, yet who in his Trinitarian love is always manifesting themselves (hence, uncreated) as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to us in uniquely diverse ways. Thus, God’s uncreated energies are not created actions perpetrated upon us, but they are the Trinity themselves in their action of giving themselves to us. God comes to us actively in each moment as self-giving love. His presence is real. This communication of the Trinity is what the Eastern Christian Fathers called “God’s uncreated energies of love.” These are not “things” outside of God, not created gifts, but they are God-Trinity in a mutual oneness as Love, yet ...

GRACE IS PRIMARILY NOT A “THING” [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

GRACE IS PRIMARILY NOT A “THING” In such a biblical and patristic vision, grace is not primarily a “thing” that God creates and imposes upon our nature to give us an extrinsic device with which to perfect our imperfect, natural self. God is Love. He is always actively present, permeating us, surrounding us, drawing us at all times by his love into greater oneness with him. The energies are God in loving and creative relationships sharing his holiness and inner life with us. They are not the created relationships that result from God’s loving activities, but they are truly God-in-action for us.

LOVING ENERGIES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

LOVING ENERGIES The energies of God flow out from the three Persons within the Trinity. They are real (although not material nor merely an intellectual concept). They are essential, i.e., not an accident but flowing truly from the very essence of the Godhead. Yet they are distinct from the actual being of the Godhead. These energies are essentially personified. They are the whole Trinity acting in loving relationship toward all creatures. In such a vision we readily understand that for the Eastern Fathers God can never be considered as static in his activities toward us and his created worlds. Because the energies are personalized, they are a common manifestation of the Persons of the Trinity. If God’s energies were not personalized, we would not truly share in God’s very own life through his self-giving. We would not be truly regenerated into sharers of God’s very own life. Grace, then, would be a “thing” God heaps upon us when we pray for it And of course, God would reward the Cat...

A CONVERSION EXPERIENCE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1997

A CONVERSION EXPERIENCE God is, therefore, permeating all persons, all things, all events by his personalized, loving, uncreated energies. Everything is “graced” by God at each moment. It is for us to find new eyes to see the loving presence of God in his Trinitarian energies in all creatures, in every event. This is possible through the resurrection of Jesus Christ who brings us this “new life” as a total person, fully God and fully human, one in self-giving love as God the Son, our bridge to the Father as we live in him, his branches on the life-giving vine. I would like to share with you a poem I wrote on this subject: OH ; GOD I sit in early morn and gaze on my God. I see the light of his smile in the soft rays of the dawn that tip-toe into my room. His light covers me and warms me. I stir to his presence around me, within me. The cocoon that so many years of silent births and deaths spun into a prison begins to split down its sides. Slowly his loving energies pour over me. I st...
