Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: 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! This entire month of March finds us deeply into the sacred liturgical season of Lent. It is a graceful time for all of us to meet the living God of Jesus more deeply and in greater purity of heart. This is a wonderful time,not only for more prayer and fasting, but also for solid study on our part of God's revelation as passed on to us through the chosen Apostles of Jesus and the teaching charism in the Church given to the bishops who have authority to teach and preserve us from human errors in essential matters of faith and morals. I have chosen as this month's teaching the topic of "the end times." So many Catholics have recently been in contact with Christian fundamentalists who base their acceptance of God's revelation solely upon their interpretation of what they read in Scripture. "If it isn't inthe Bible,it is not God's...

THE END TIMES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

THE END TIMES Could you honestly say that,in the wake of so many recent devastating earthquakes,the Middle East war,the rampant crimes committed everywhere on our streets,the increase of world terrorism,the threat of unemployment facing many workers throughout the world,you haven't wondered at least whether we are nearing the end of our created world? Asa Christian,you have undoubtedly believed for a long time that this earth as we know it will one day reach its end. You have recited the -Creed that professes faithin the second coming of the Lord Jesus to this earth in glory to judge the living and the dead. But perhaps you have been too practical minded to worry too much about the details. You have too many other problems to solve so why worry about God’s problem of ending His c r e a t ion?

VARIOUS APPROACHES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

VARIOUS APPROACHES Yet,as we reach the end of the second millenium of our Christian era,the year 2000 is becoming a focal point for various speculations about the impending future. One group of speculators concerning the future of pl anet earth is that of the futurologist s. These are the economists and other scientists who are looking seriously at the resources of our earth in order to foresee the future needs and to plan now for their attainment. Alvin Toffler defines such a "futurist" as a "growing school of social critics, scientists,philosophers,planners,and others who concern themselves with the alternatives facing man as the human race collides with an onrushing future" (The Futurists;p.3). Such futurists see the future as an unfolding of the potential locked within the earth’s resources that can be developed to bring forth a richer world if human beings cooperate in a logical manner. The future is seen as a fruition much as an oak tree is the growth from an acorn. The proces...

A CHRISTIAN ESCHATOLOGY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

A CHRISTIAN ESCHATOLOGY And,yet,throughout all of Christianity there has been a happy mingling of the tension between a becoming of the potentialities locked within our earth and a coming of Christ. A true sense of the apocalyptic,the yearning for the fulfillment through the sudden intervention of Jesus Christ to put an end to the sufferings of this world and to bring final judgment to the just as well as the wicked,has always been an essential part of this authentic Christian eschatology (which means the study of the end t. imes) . The Bible promises a transformed humanity and a cosmos through the cooperation of human beings working under grace with God's imminent and creative presence in all of matter. The term apocalyptic id derived from the Greek word apokalypsis (Rev.l:l)that means an uncovering or a revealing. It refers to that type of literature that bears this name and is mainly concerned with revealing what has been hidden. It can be used in several meanings. Basically it r...

THE RETURN OF THE LORD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

THE RETURN OF THE LORD If apocalypticism is a poor vehicle for conveying the basic truths of Christianity,it,however, has an important element to contribute to the preaching of Christianity. Primitive Christianity eagerly looked forward to the coming of Jesus imminently. In the New Testament we do find apocalyptic language used. However,the writings of the New Testament are not to be considered as a part of the strictly so-called apocalyptic writings mentioned above,based on specific ideas,chiefly on prediction in history of what will infallibly happen when certain signs happened that foretold the coming of the long awaited Messiah in His second coming back to this earth. We can indeed find in the New Testament individual sayings of Jesus and His followers,especially the author of the Book of Revelat ions and St. Paul. Such apocalyptical language,as found in Mark 13,Matthew 24,Luke 21,1 Corinthians 12,2 Thessal onians 2 and Revelations,provides the authors with a language framework ...

MILLENARIANISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

MILLENARIANISM Millenarianism is the teaching that holds that,before the second coming of Jesus Christ in judgment,He will return to this earth to establish an earthly kingdom that will last for 1000 years. The word is derived from the Latin word for 1000,mi 11e and annum, year _ Scripturally it is based on the text of the Book of Revelations 20:1-15 which teaches that Satan will be chained for 1000 years and that the martyrs and those faithful to Jesus will come back and reign with Him on this earth in a messianic kingdom. Such literal interpretation of the Book of Revelations 1 text has been held in Che early Church by a few church Fathers,but in general such a teaching has been condemned as heretical from the time of St. Augustine to the present time.

THE RAPTURE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

THE RAPTURE It is this teaching that is broadcast so constantly on TV fundaprograms,advocating the theory of pre-tr "rapture." Based on a faulty interpretation of the Greek word used by St. Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17, such teaching holds that Jesus will come suddenly and catch His chosen ones up in a rapture,taking them into the sky without a moment's notice. Those who are left will be subjected to great hribulat ions. Hence the dispensationalists work out a teaching on the rapture taking place before any sufferings can be inflicted upon the true believers of Christ. Therefore,the rapture is "pre-tribulation." The rest of the world will suffer,but not the "chosen ones" whom Christ has selected to be "raptured" out of the sufferings and tribulations inflicted upon mankind. According to this erroneous interpretation Christ will come in two phases. The "rapture" will precede the coming of Christ with His resurrected ones and all true believers will return with Him. The "rapture" ...

A NEW EARTH AND A NEW HEAVEN [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

A NEW EARTH AND A NEW HEAVEN What is the destiny of this world that God, v; hen He created it,as reported in the Book of Genesis,saw that it "was very good" (Gn 1:31)? Scripture guarantees to us that God is involved in a process of evolution, in which He,with the cooperation of us human beings,is engaged in transforming this material creation into "anew heaven and anew earth" (Rv 21:1). God never creates to destroy but only to transform into something that will give Him greater glory as it reflects the unity brought about by His loving activity within matter. This present earth,that knows so much of disharmony and evil,division and separation,is meant by God's eternal plan to enter into a fulfillment,a recapitulation and reconciliation of all things to His original plan. This is ve ry much the vision of St. Paul in his breathtaking vision of the role of the cosmic Christ recorded in the letter to the Colossians: He is the image of the unseen God and the first-born of all creation, f...

A TRUE CHRISTIAN UNDERSTANDING [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

A TRUE CHRISTIAN UNDERSTANDING The true Christian vision of the incarnation and resurrection of Jesus believes that by assuming a material body,the Word made flesh inserted Himself into the heart of God's created cosmos. By His death and resurrection,Christ,in His gloriously spiritualized humanity,is now present to the cosmos in anew manner. He is directing the movement along with the cooperation of us human beings in history of the completion of God’s creation toward Ome g a when there will be only Christ. He will be everything and He will be in everything (Col 3:11). In a real sense,the parousia,tne final appearance in glory of Christ,is already present in our universe. He is not coming as though He has never been here. He is working to transform and bring into completion the entire created world. This world belongs to Christ, not Satan! He is now achieving in process the victory over cosmic evil, a victory that will be full and perfect at the end of time. In those in whom Christ ...

BUILDING THE BODY OF CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

BUILDING THE BODY OF CHRIST We are members of His Body and each of us has a role to play in the reconciliation of the cosmos to Christ's power and the completion of the potentiality God has locked inside of all creation unto His eternal glory (2 Cos 5:17-19). In order to find Christ reconciling His cosmos and to be actually able to cooperate in His cosmic redemption,we must turn within ourselves daily and hear the Spirit of Christ guiding us. In purity of heart and humility we are to see the uniqueness of ourselves,given talents by God which only we can develop with God's grace to add something unique to the building of Christ's Body. We are in need of a constant "conversion", a turning toward the indwelling Spirit to be guided by the values of Christ. As we turn within ourselves daily in prayer and purifying reflection that heals us of our selfish love,we find Christ more easily in our material involvements and work. We yield our talents to His direction. We seek to live according ...

RIGHT TEACHING—RIGHT LIVING [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1987

RIGHT TEACHING —RIGHT LIVING What does this topic about the "end times" have to do with your personal prayer-life? There is a simple law in the spiritual life that is the key to a right understanding about the end of the world. The early Greek Fathers were unanimous in their realization that orthodox y(orthodoxia) or right teaching and orthop r ax is or right practice go together. Simply put ,Christ.ians must rightly believe in God’s revelation about His nature and His relationships to us and His created world,about our human nature and the end or purpose of our creation and that of the entire material world.lf in our prayer,we are convinced of God’s eternal plan for us and this cosmos of ours, then in our daily living,in every thought,word and deed,such solid God-revealed truths will be our directing force. We will obey Jesus who still exhorts us as He did while He was on this earth:"But regarding that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven,nor yet the Son,but only...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: 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! Half of this month of April finds us still Lenten pilgrims in the desert. And then Easter will burst upon us with the suddenness of the rising sun in the east,calling us to a deeper sharing in the"new creation" given to us through the death-resurrection of Jesus and His outpoured Spirit. We hopefully have purified our hearts from within,as Jesus exhorted us to do in the Gospel. By more diligence and inner discipline we have prayed and fasted. We have cried out for the healing of our brokenness and sinfulness. By greater inner attentiveness we have striven to listen to God’s Word,Jesus Christ and by His Spirit to become more obedient to His commands. Asa fruit of our living out our pass-over experience of death to self-centeredness to put on the mind of Christ,we have become more docile to His Spirit working in our lives. For ...

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION THROUGH A SPIRIT GUIDE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION THROUGH A SPIRIT GUIDE Have you asked yourself recently :"Is it necessary for me to have a "spiritual director?" What would such a guide do for my spiritual life?And just where would I find such an 'extinct species' of the human race?" Since its beginning Christianity has always lived with the hope of being one,loving community in Christ;one family —the family of God. We all share this longing and are aware that we really belong to such a community,the Church,the Body of Christ. It is only within the Church that new life can begin to grow and take on form of the fullness of Christ and the transformation of this world into a loving family of human persons in Christ. It is within the Church that the Holy Trinity manifests itself and by participation in the very trinitarian life in Christ and through His Holy Spirit we human beings can realize our full potential of being made participators of God's very own nature (2 P 1:4). The place of the spiritual director or sp...

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION? [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION? A generally accepted definition of spiritual direction could be expressed as such: Spiritual direction is the art of leading individual Christians to their proper perfection according to their personal vocation and their place in the Church. It is a form of pastoral care practised by Jesus and His New Testament followers in a "pre-conscious" way. Itevolved and flourished in the early centuries when infant Baptism was the norm and the rite of Christian initiation of adults was in decline and the sacrament of reconciliation was received only for the gravest of sins. Lay confession of sins was always practised and Various rites,such as the Eucharist itself,had always been the sources of God's forgiveness. Yet people have always felt a need for guidance in their spiritual development. They discovered among the laity and the clerical or religious groups certain men and women who had a charism ofdiscernment of spirits and could lead them into greater freedom t...

TRADITIONAL MODEL [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

TRADITIONAL MODEL Basically we have seen within the Catholic Church two models of spiritual direction. The first is the model prevalent until Va- tican Hand can be characterized by the following description. The director is usually a priest or someone with a special office in the Church,e.g.a novice mistress or master of novices. Such a director as been given this position in an official or quasi-of-ficial capacity and has received some special technical preparation for this office. His/her function is not only to guide souls and resolve certain important questions ,e . g.in the choice of a vocation,but especially to form in the guided ones according to some special,appropriate way of spirituality which is assumed to be willed for them by God. Such "formation" is carried on according to a preconceived system. Individual differences are to some extent to be respected but it is the system and the form according to the "spirituality of the institute" that receives major emphasis. This ...

SOUL-FRIEND MODEL [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

SOUL-FRIEND MODEL To speak today of a spiritual director or a spiritual "father" suggests to most of us moderns a paternalism and impersonalism that all too often reduced the directee to an "infant",docile and obedient,even to the whims of the director.With growth in personalism and a grounding more solidly in Scripture,we find a more preferred model for relationships between the director and directee. This is much more ancient than the traditional model described above. It has its roots in the Christian Ea s t*S uc h early spiritual directors were called "pneumatophors" or "Spirit-bearers" since they strove to be led as perfectly as possible,not by their own discursive powers, but by the immediate illumination of the Holy Spirit. They sought to become purified instruments so that the Spirit of the risen Jesus could unveil the plan of God for the individual seeking direction.

MODERN PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 April 1987

MODERN PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING To determine more specifically the unique role of Christian spiritual direction we need to distinguish it clearly from modern psychotherapy and counseling. Many times all three may be undergone by an individual and in all three one can discover the loving operation the Holy Spirit to bring that person to a richer life in the Trinity. Yet each discipline has its own specific goals. In psychotherapy the process originates in some painful experience,of a mental or emotional illness. The role model is medi- cal with the psychotherapist-function as a doctor or healer. The relationships operative are those of a healer and a patient. The dynamics of the relationship deal with restoration of health,mental attitudes and emotional behavior. The process is terminated when there is achieved freedom in emotional balance and mental health allows the patient to make normal contact with the here and now. Counseling focuses upon a problem experience of ignorance o...
