Discernment [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Discernment BY DAVID LONSDALE On Choosing Wisely and Well Our choices are our responses to what life offers to us: taking this, accepting that; letting go of this, holding onto that; doing this rather than that; omitting or refusing to do one thing in favor of a better option. It is our choices, too, that shape our lives, and that shape reflects the kind of options we have chosen within the limits of the circumstances in which we are placed. Choices are on a sliding scale of seriousness and it goes without saying that some have greater weight than others. At one end of the scale are the more trivial decisions which we make almost automatically, without thinking, in day-to-day living. Some everyday issues, however, do have great importance: questions about how I treat my colleagues at work, whether to make sure teenagers come home on time from the movies, or how much time I spend with my community can have consequences for ourselves and others that are far-reaching and far from trivi...

The Rosary [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

The Rosary BY THOMAS H. GROOME How the Rosary Teaches Us to Pray Like many Catholics, I grew up in a family that recited the rosary every night. And we knew why we did; as Mom would often assure us, the most effective person to take our prayers to Jesus was his own mother. As a good son, how could he refuse her? As children, we often came to the nightly rosary with protest —"in a minute, Ma" —but having settled on our knees, it was a lovely, quieting time, one that bonded our family of nine kids at the end of a day of the usual sibling tensions. Years later, when we gathered for our parents' wakes, and then for those of siblings, we prayed the rosary together and it bonded us still. The rosary crusader Father Paddy Peyton was right when he said, "The family that prays together, stays together." The gentle drone of the Hail Marys helped introduce me to what I later knew as meditation. My mother would encourage us to "just think about the mysteries." How wise she was. In his lovely ap...

HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY It is customary to assign each chaplet to a particular day of the week. Rosarium Virginis Marine (RVM) suggests that the Joyful mysteries be prayed on Monday and Saturday, the Luminous on Thursday, the Sorrowful on Tuesday and Friday, and the Glorious on Wednesday and Sunday One popular opening prayer is the first verse of Psalm 70, "O God, come to my assistance. O Lord make haste to help me." A variation of the opening prayer is to say the Apostles Creed. This is followed by an Our Father, three Flail Marys, and a Glory Be. Then announce the chaplet and the first mystery, for example, "The five Joyful mysteries, the first mystery, the Annunciation." After announcing each mystery, pause for the proclamation of a related biblical passage, and silence for meditation. Then follow with the Our Father, the decade of Flail Marys, and the Glory Be for each of the five mysteries. The Joyful Mysteries 1) Annunciation by Gabriel to the Virgin Mary 2) Visitation of Mary ...

The Lord's Prayer [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

The Lord's Prayer BY N.T. WRIGHT Praying the "Our Father" Simple yet profound, ancient yet always fresh; deeply Jewish yet available to all, the Lord's Prayer offers the central message of Jesus in the form best suited to its appropriation. Jesus did not come, after all, merely to teach true doctrine and ethics, but to bring about God's kingdom; within that sovereign and saving rule, human beings are caught up with the challenge and invitation to corporate and personal renewal, as deep as the human heart, as wide as the world. To pray this prayer with full attention and intention is to partake in this renewal. The prayer occurs in Matt. 6.9-13, within the Sermon on the Mount; in Luke 11.2-4, answering the disciples' request for a prayer; and in Didache 8.2, which instructs that the prayer be used three times daily. Luke's text is shorter, with some changes in the Greek; Matthew's is the one that has become widespread in the church, with some traditions also adding Didache 10.5 ("rem...

Family Life as Spiritual Practice [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Family Life as Spiritual Practice BY WENDY M. WRIGHT Spiritual Disciplines of the Domestic Church 7t is an error... to wish to banish the devout life from the regiment of soldiers, the mechanic's shop, the court of princes, or the home of married persons. True devotion... not only does no injury to one's vocation or occupation, but on the contrary adorns and beautifies it" (Saint Francis de Sales). For most of us, family life is a busy, bustling life filled with things to do and people to whom to attend. After the birth of our first daughter, I attended a newmother's support group sponsored by the local hospital. Women whose infants had been born at the hospital between six and twelve weeks previous were invited to join. We met on Wednesday mornings at the home of a facilitator to share our experiences. What I remember most about the meetings (besides the carpet full of wiggling, squealing infants) was the common exasperation felt at being so busy. One wide-eyed young matron with tw...

Practicing Forgiveness [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Practicing Forgiveness BY MARJORIE J. THOMPSON Moving Toward Reconciliation We sometimes have trouble understanding the precise nature of forgiveness. I would like to begin by suggesting that forgiveness is not certain things with which we often confuse it. Forgiving does not mean denying our hurt. What on the surface appears to be a forgiving attitude may merely reveal that we have succeeded in suppressing our pain. If we bury our hurt or pretend it isn't real, we experience no sense of being wronged that would require our forgiveness. Forgiveness is a possibility only when we acknowledge the negative impact of a person's actions or attitudes on our lives. This holds true whether or not harm was intended by the offender. Until we are honest about our actual feelings, forgiveness has no meaning. It is important to underscore that forgiveness bears no resemblance to resigned martyrdom. A person with a weak sense of self may too easily take on blame for the actions of others. A person...

The Jesus Prayer [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

The Jesus Prayer BY JOSEPH WONG, 0.5.8. CAM. A Way to Inner Stillness Today, one ofthe major challenges of trying to be a contemplative while living in a modern city is learning how to cultivate inner silence, or inner stillness, in the midst of the clamor and the hectic activities of a busy life. Yet I have known from childhood that the kind of recollectedness which can lead to inner stillness can in fact be maintained in an urban setting. I grew up in Hong Kong, and I used to hear my grandmother, who was a devout Buddhist, reciting the Buddha's name throughout the day. Turning her prayer beads in her hand, she would chant "Nan-Mu E-Mi-To-Fo" (which means "Homage to the Buddha Amitabha"). When I greeted her, she would interrupt her recitation, exchange a few words with me, and then continue chanting "Nan-Mu E-Mi-To-Fo." Later I attended a Catholic school and became a Catholic. When I first learned about the Jesus Prayer, I was greatly struck by the similarities between this prayer ...

Centering Prayer [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Centering Prayer BY JOSEPH G. SANDMAN A Treasure for the Soul Vatican II called for the revitaiization of the path of contemplative prayer Who could have predicted twenty-five years ago, when three Trappist monks from a monastery in Massachusetts introduced contemplative prayer to a group of "noncontemplatives," that its popularity would grow so dramatically? Today, thousands of believers from a variety of Christian denominations in every state and in dozens of countries practice contemplative prayer daily In addition, an international network of dedicated volunteers teaches it around the world. These monks dreamed of taking the church's rich, centuries-old tradition of contemplative prayer and distilling it into a simple, easily learned prayer that ordinary people could practice. They believed that the daily practice of this prayer could lead to a more intimate union with God and a more powerful experience of God's presence in our lives. This active presence heals, transforms, and ...

CENTERING PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

CENTERING PRAYER Guidelines for Practicing Centering Prayer 1. Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God's presence and action within. 2. Sitting comfortably with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently and introduce the sacred word as the symbol of your consent to God's presence and action within. 3. When you become aware of thoughts, return ever so gently to the sacred word. 4. At the end of the prayer period, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes.

Retreats [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Retreats BY ANNE LUTHER The Christian Practice of "Retreat" The concept of a "retreat" has a long and varied history. In the Christian context the invitation of Jesus to "come away and rest awhile" (Mark 6.31) is often thought of as the first invitation to "make retreat." The original inspiration for "retreat" can be traced to the notion of a "retreat of the whole Church" in the forty-day season of Lent as codified after the Council of Nicaea (325) and to the development of monasticism as a form of collective retreat. Purpose of Retreat The term "retreat" can be misleading in that it could easily conjure up the idea of "escape" from the world. The experience of "retreat" does include a "stepping aside" from ordinary routine for a time to reflect and to pray, to slow down, to be still, and to listen. This "coming apart" is meant to aid retreatants in integrat-ing their relationship with the Divine, their spirituality, as that is experienced in the marketplace and home—in the world. I...

Companionship with the Saints [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Companionship with the Saints BY ELIZABETH A. JOHNSON Practices of Hopeful Remembrance In its plenitude, the symbol of the communion of saints signifies that those who seek the face of the living God today belong to a great historical company, an intergenerational band of the friends of God and prophets that includes the living and the dead, joined in community with the cosmic world, all connected in the gracious, compassionate love of Holy Wisdom who, in the midst of historical struggle, sin, and defeat, continuously renews her gift of saving, healing grace. How does this doctrinal symbol appear concretely in prayer and piety to nourish the vitality of the ekklesia? One fire kindles another—but how are the sparks to fly? What practices can release the liberating power of the heritage of all saints to stir the affections and motivate action? Under the traditional patronage model of the saints, a vast set of devotions grew up known collectively as the ciiltus sanctorum, or cult of th...

Spiritual Direction [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

Spiritual Direction BY KATHLEEN FISCHER Seeking Guidance for the Journey Spiritual direction is a conversation between a director and someone who wants to grow in the Christian life. Convinced that the Spirit lives in us, as well as in all creation, the director and directee (the person being directed) attend to God's many manifestations: Where is God in my desire to quit my job, or in my struggle with symptoms of Parkinson's disease? Am I being called to take a more courageous stand on justice issues? What is the meaning of this darkness I encounter in my prayer? The term "direction" suggests that one person tells another what to believe or how to act, but a spiritual director helps others freely name what God is doing in their lives and shape their own response. Spiritual direction is an honored practice whose roots lie deep in the Catholic tradition. Scholars usually trace its beginnings to the fourth-century desert fathers and mothers. In the rugged setting of the Egyptian deser...

New Media and Catholic Spiritual Practice [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009

New Media and Catholic Spiritual Practice BY BARBARA RADTKE Wired for Practice: Cyberspace Spirituality New media and Catholic spiritual practices ? Is pairing these words like oil and water or hand in glove? Can my iPod help me pray? Can the Internet be a resource for a retreat? In an age of technology, it may come as no surprise that Americans use new media to support and sustain spiritual activity. In "Faith Online," the Pew Internet and American Life Project's study published in 2004, we learn that almost two-thirds of those who had access to the Internet, about 82 million Americans, have used it for spiritual or religious reasons. And do not be fooled into thinking that this demographic has a strong bias toward youth. The Pew Study found almost half of what they called the online faithful were between the ages of 30 and 49. This online activity did not replace a faith community but was used mostly in addition to affiliation with a congregation. Looking specifically at Catholic ...
