EASTERN CHRISTIANITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

EASTERN CHRISTIANITY Some Western Christians seeking new prayer forms have turned to the Eastern Christian world and found there not only a legitimate Christianity but one that is highly complementary to the heavy Western rationalism both in theology and piety. With enthusiasm such Christians find basically the same doctrines as taught by the Roman Catholic Church and by many traditional Protestant Churches. But what attracts such Western Christians to the Christian East is its rich,mystical traditions. It combines in its prayer forms an admirable synthesis of the prophetic quality found in the Old Testament Judaism with the immediate,immanent experience of the indwelling Trinity that Jesus preached and made available to His followers through the Holy Spirit. From the desert Fathers of the early centuries of Christianity there came forth an intense form of asceticism and mysticism called hes.ychasm. This form of spirituality derives its name from the Greek word. nesvchl a.which mean...

THE JESUS PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

THE JESUS PRAYER Westef l Christians can find the practices of prayer and ascetism as taught by this school of hesychasm in the writings of the Fathers of the desert,but especially the writings of the hesychastic Fathers as found in the collection called the Philokalia.lt is in the Philokalia that we find a prayer form called the Jesus Prayer that has given much meaning to the prayer life of some modern Christians of the West, In such ancient writings from the Fathers of the desert we discover the-prayer as traditionally handed down from their own experience and usage and as they drew it out of what they considered as the essential message of the New Testament experience of the risen Lord. At first,the Fathers of the desert repeated it as an oral ejaculation,much like a mantra-chant:"Lord,Jesus Christ,Son of Cod, have mercy on me, a sinnerJ" M o dern Christians may find that,as they repeat it orally or with the lips,in imitation of the early Christians of the desert,it moves to the ...

PRAYING THE JESUS PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

PRAYING THE JESUS PRAYER The Jesus Prayer can be suited to whatever spiritual development any Christian may find him/herself. It begins with synchronising one’s breathing with the words of the traditional formula: Lord, Jesus Christ,Son of God,have mercy on me, a sinner," or with some other more simplified "mantra" or fixed word or phrase that will allow the one in prayer to center upon the presence of the Lord Jesus. Some persons use it as a centering technique to enter into prayer whether it be on a discursive level or on a more advanced, contemplative level of the prayer of faith. Others will repeat it silently,slowly and with full consciousness of the presence of Jesus during the alloted time of prayer. Others,more advanced,in whom the prayer has become so intertwined with their breathing,will find that the breathing and rhythmically pronouncing of the name of Jesus become one with the very heart beat that goes on day and night without any willed effort.

FAR EASTERN TECHNIQUES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

FAR EASTERN TECHNIQUES Other modern Christians are discovering the healing power of deep,transcendental prayer,found in the prayer disciplines of the Far Eastern religions,such as Hinduism and its various forms of Yoga,Zen Buddhism and the modernised version of Transcendental Meditation (TM) as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yi'ogi. J.M.Dechanet, Abhishiktananda (Fr. Henri Le Saux,OSß) and Bede Griffiths ,OSB are among several Christian leaders who have come from Europe tc India and Africa and have tried to create a Christian Yoga by incorporating the traditional asanas or postures and breathing techniques as means to free the modern Christian for deeper prayer and lead him/her by disciplined techniques to discover new integration of the broken past experiences into a release of fresh,psychic e 1ergy. Such techniques,they are careful to point out,are not prayer in the Christian sense,but they can be very helpful in preparing us for deeper prayer. The Hatha Yoga postures or asanas,especi...

YOGIC CONCENTRATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

YOGIC CONCENTRATION Western Christians are discovering in the meditative dis- ciplines that foster concentration onto "one-pointedness" ways of overcoming the rush of sense bombarment of a noisy,technological world that takes us away from true listening to the indwelling God. Such exercises as suggested by Yoga and Zen Buddhism,as looking intently,for example,upon a flower or a painting until the barriers that-, separate the subject from the object,can be utilised in Christian prayer. In such exercises a gradual feeling that admits of greater intensity and growth allows the contemplator to transcend the tyranny of one's ’’conditioned" self and the limitations of dace, time and uncontrolled desires. Through such disciplined concentration the modern Christians can ! not only begin toperceive a oneness with the world outside but also a slowing down of one's mental activities with an accompanying sense of deep peace and quiet.

CENTERING PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

CENTERING PRAYER Cbrl G.Jung believed that western man and woman would eventually create their own type of Yoga in order to expand their consciousness. He did not see any value in importing the elements from another culture without some adaption to the familiar elements found in Western culture. What has been growing in the use of techniques in modern prayer is the eclectic "borrowing" from a great many sources to develop a Christian type of transcendental meditation, using a Christian mantra drawn from Holy Scripture. This movement does not contradict the interest in the Eastern Christian usage of the Jesus Prayer but it goes somewhat beyond in its openness and readiness to implement elements from any and all non-Chris-tian meditation forms into one which remains quite Christian and centered upon Jesus Christ and the traditional teachings of the Christian Church. This movement of centering prayer takes on many forms of techniques. The basic belief is a re-capturing of Christian inc...

DIALOGICAL MEDITATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

DIALOGICAL MEDITATION With greater understanding from the field of psychology of the working of the human psyche,Christian meditation has found anew richness through the use of dialogical methods of communing with God. The Bible is filled with stories that show God in dialogue with His people. Individuals inScripture also are seen as carrying on with God on an active "meditation" in dialogical form, '•hen applied to modern Christian meditation the dialogue form of prayer takes one of three expressions: the imaginative,the passive receptive and the quiet observative dialogue. In imaginative dialogue the meditator constructs a scene from Holy Scripture by which the participant can vividly place him/herself into the given scene. St.lgnatius of Loyola gives such an imaginative dialogue in his Spiritual Exercises for the second and third weeks. Morton Kelsey describes how one can activate the imagination during meditation on Scripture: "In approaching either a parable or an actual event,...

CHARISMATIC PRAYER GROUPS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

CHARISMATIC PRAYER GROUPS The charismatic movement that developed within the Catholic Church and the other straight-line Protestant Churches out of influences from the Pentecostal,Holiness and Assembly of God Churches in America has given anew group prayer form that most Catholic and Protestant faithful had not known to any marked degree before this movement. Its chief characteristic is exemplified by the charismatic prayer group that regularly meets in order to praise God.receive teachings from Scripture and the doctrines of the Church and in general to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit as the participants open themselves in genuine sincerity to allow the charisms of that same Spirit to come forth in order to build the Body of Christ. It is typified by a great deal of freedom in spontaneous praying, sometimes praying in tongues,with free expression given by the participants to personal witnesses of their experiencing of the working of God in their lives in order to praise ...

LITURGICAL PRAYER FORMS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

LITURGICAL PRAYER FORMS The growth in personalism has seen a movement to develop more communal prayer forms that recognize the individuals in their participation as important elements bringing their contribution to liturgical worship. One modern prayer form that is new for our times but a restoration of a more ancient custom in the Christian Churches is the restoration of the Parish Divi ne Office where priest and laity come together daily in the morning for morning prayer as preparation for the Divine Liturgy and again in the evening for evening prayer. With greater emphasis since Vatican II on the solemn proclamation of the Word in the Divine Liturgy more meditation in silence is being practised in many parish celebrations after the readings and after the reception of the Holy Eucharist. Attempts to offer forms of greater participation in the Divine Liturgy by the participants in the pews have developed the kiss of peace as a gesture of oneness,more singing of plain and folk music...

CONCLUSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1986

CONCLUSION We have seen a great richness of modern forms of prayer now being used by Christians as they strive to meet God and each other in deeper consciousness of their unique personhood and that of God and neighbor. Techniques have been restored from the Christian past and new ones have been introduced into modern Christian prayer through contact with the Eastern Christian spirituality and the Far E a stern religions. Psychology and parapsychology have also provided information about the workings of the deeper levels of the psyche in prayer and have prepared the way for new techniques for praying more deeply and less intellectually. The stress on intimacy and community sharing has also brought into thefield of Christian prayer new ways of expressing the oneness attained by many in communal prayer. A final word needs to be said about the use of techniques. A method is good if it works,if it produces the end for which it is used,namely,if it brings us into an adoring union with God...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with you! In this holy liturgical period after Easter,we hopefiLtly have keener insights of what the great gift of the Risen Savio.r should mean to us. Especially we understand how,through His glorious resurrect!on,He is now ever continuingj,by means of the gift of Himself in the Eucharist, His death-resurrection as made present to us in our historical time and place. Thus I have chosen as this month's teaching the beautiful and most important topic of the Eucharist. In one way I write with sadness in my heart. I am sad personally but also collectively as- a member of the Catholic Church. You and I have received our risen Lord Jesus thousands and thousands of times since our first Holy Communion day. By a Church extending itself as the Body of Christ from the first eucharistic community in the Upper Room of Jerusalem, the Eucharist has...

BE EUCHARIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

BE EUCHARIST Have you ever noticed what a difference takes place in your relationships with friends when they invite you to eat a meal at their table? They buy food and carefully prepare it,Possibly they serve you a good table wine to warm your heart. As they offer you food and drink, they are saying symbolically: "By this food and drink we offer you our love. We want to nourish new life in you by sharing ourselves with you,our love,our presence in your life." In no physical sense are they or their love for you the food and drink,nor are they in any way literally inside the nourishment they offer you. And yet in their loving self-giving they become present to you in the "breaking of the bread." The food and drink are symbol-carriers making it possible to "act out" in a physical,visible action a ritual , a hidden,mysterious spiritual reality that we call love. Human interiority is not only expressed through such actions but the inside feelings and movements become a transforming powe...

GOD'S LOVING GIFT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

GOD'S LOVING GIFT The Eucharist is the place in our human space and time where, in a similar "meal," God reaches,as it were,the peak of His inner trinitarian love of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit. The tremendous mutual self-giving of Father and Son and Spirit of love cannot contain itself. It wants to burst forth,to be shared with others. God gives Himself to us created beings in His many gifts. Theologians speak of the many modes or ways in which God is present in His creation toward us in communication and communion. We must not objectivize God's presence as self-giving of Himself to us in the Eucharist as just another manner of being present to us. In the Eucharist we touch the basis of all reality,the Holy Trinity. Here are concentrated the uncreated,personalized,loving energies of God as loving community. God's fullness of love moves toward us in order to transform us into His loving children. The Eucharist is the center of all other presences of God toward us. We no doubt hav...

TAKE AND EAT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

TAKE AND EAT Only recently have we returned to consider the symbolism of the Eucharist as a meal to replace a rather static view of the sacrament of the Eucharist. The concept of a meal stresses inter-personal relationships between the communicant and Christ,between the community and the Trinity,between the self-gift of God»s family and our return to be self-gift to the world. It has enjoyed a long tradition,even from the Gospels themselves. Jesus is reported in John's Gospel as saying: "If you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you will not have life in you" (Jn 6:53)* "My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink" (Jn 6:55). Jesus fed the multitude with bread and fish. But it is principally in the Synoptic Gospels that the meal theme is the setting for the institution of the Eucharist. This is the symbol Jesus chose to act out His self-gifting of Him- self on the night before He was crucified for love of us. In the Near East,the setting for the beginni...

THE LAST SUPPER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

THE LAST SUPPER As we prayerfully consider the action of Jesus serving the Passover meal on the eve of His passion and death, we discover new insights and applications for our own participation in the Eucharist Jesus used bread and wine,not only symbols of nourishment unto life,but from Scripture these were signs of joy and super-abundance of God’s chosen people in His promised land. In the Last Supper when Jesus first gave Himself to His Church-community as Eucharist,He gave a blessing, A blessing (in Hebrew berakah) in the Old Testament was a creative act,whether given by God to His people or to an individual or by an individual human person to another. God blesses His creation,all living creatures,above all,man,and empowers man to be a similar creative blessing for all creatures given to man by God. God blesses Noah after the flood and also Abraham and restores His covenant through those blessings with the human race. Monika Hellwig describes the importance of a Jewish blessA ble...

ONENESS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

ONENESS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST However,we must not "privatize" this sacred banquet by creating a fantasy world into which we step in order to be alone with Jesus and totally unconcerned with other human beings. We do not receive the Eucharist in order to speak pious sentiments to Jesus,as an object of our adoration. In the Eucharist we too,like the first disciples of Jesus, are swept up into the loving energies of Jesus for one another, for His whole Body. Through the Eucharist,we break out in faith to put on the total mind of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit * In the microcosmic communion with the transfigured Bread and Wine, v/e are brought into a deeper faith to a cosmic communion,first with the Body of Christ,with those members living by faith in Jesus as Lord. There is no receiving the Body of Christ unless v/e receive the whole Church and this includes an openness on our part to love and serve the whole of humanity. * St * Paul gives us the fruit of the Eucharist: :• . . ■ ;v*&am...

JESUS DISCOVERED IN COMMUNITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1986

JESUS DISCOVERED IN COMMUNITY The Eucharist is a sign, not only of our union with Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Father by the illumination of the Spirit of love,but,above all,of our union or our desire to lovingly work toward union with all mankind* We see this truth taught by St. Luke in the narrative of the two disciples meeting the Risen Jesus on the road to Emmaus* Jesus patiently explained the texts from Scripture that taught the necessity of the Messiah's suffering in order to enter into glory. Although Jesus was physically present to them,nevertheless, their eyes were kept from recognizing Him because they were still judging,not by faith within the context of the Word's presence and action to the community of God’s people,but by the physical presence of the Word. It was.only in the ’’breaking of the bread” that their eyes were opened to recognize Jesus as present to them. Luke and the early Churchcommunity are saying that there is anew presence of the Risen Jesus that goes be...
