Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 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 is the last issue of INSCAPE until we resume publication in September. We do not send any teaching during the months of July and August since most subscribers travel and usually take vacation in those months. Please remember in your prayers my trip to India in August for lectures and retreats. I have chosen for the June teaching the important topic of God's compassionate mercy toward us,His children. True devotion to the Sacred Heart cannot be understood without a prayerful experience of God's constant,infinite love as shown in His faithful mercy as God in Jesus and His Spirit meet us in our brokenness and lack of true love returned to God. Jesus,as God-Man,images on the pages of the Gospels and in our daily lives that He is not only merciful but He is MERCY. He is God in merciful action,in faithful commitment to suffer ...

GOD'S MERCY IS ABOVE ALL HIS WORKS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

GOD'S MERCY IS ABOVE ALL HIS WORKS In his play, "The Cocktail Party",T.S.Eliot has powerfully satirized our capitalistic society that has made human beings into impersonalized ants,very efficiently running their colonies,but knowing no true human communication,knowing little of true love and human mercy. Celia,the Christ-image of the p 1 ay,describes in the first act at a cocktail party modern men and women and their inability to communicate with each other: . j ' ' v ; •• . -S . ‘ ■ . Everyone's alone-or so it seems to me. They make noises and think they are talking to each other. They make faces and think they understand each other. And I'm sure they don't. At the end of the play,two years later, at a similar cocktail party,it is learned that Celia who had become a Catholic nun and missionary had been killed while mercifully tending the sick during a native uprising,apparently crucified,very near and anthil. Her Christ-like love for the natives,even to the point of dying for them,...

A MAN-CENTERED UNIVERSE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

A MAN-CENTERED UNIVERSE Pope John Paul II in his encyclical,On the Mercy of God (Dives in Misericordia) has described our modern,techno logical world. On the positive side we are highly privileged persons. We human beings by our creative activities,intelligence and works have brought about profound changes. These are changes both in the field of science and technology and in that of social and cultural life. We have extended our power over nature and have acquired deeper knowledge of the laws of social behavior. Obstacles and distances between individuals and nations dissolve and shrink through an increased sense of what is universal,through a clearer awareness of the unity of the human race,through the acceptance of mutual dependence in authentic solidarity. But negatively we have placed man in place of God as the center of the universe. But to what purpose are these achievements if basic communities of love and compassion on the levels of husband and wife,children and parents,rel ...

GOD'S MERCIFUL LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

GOD'S MERCIFUL LOVE If God is love by His very intrinsic makeup within the Trinity,His love becomes experienced as He lovingly shows His concern in merciful actions toward us in our miseries and many needs. Jesus' mercy shown to all who came to Him in need reveals the cen- tr a 1 characteristic of God's perfection (Mt 5:4 8; L k 6:36). We can never deserve by justice God’s merciful,covenantal love and self-sacrificing concern. We can never demand God's merciful forgiveness for our lack of showing mercy toward those in suffering around us. God's mercy,as the Psalmist and the Old Testament writers constantly repeat,is above all His works. But we can harden our hearts by refusing to extend God's mercy to our brothers and sisters in need.To refuse to show mercy and forgiveness to another human being is to rupture the family bond and to break the lifeline of mercy binding us through Jesus to the Father. The Church was created by the mercy of the Father made present to us in Jesus. The Ch...

GOD’S MERCY AND OUR MERCY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

GOD’S MERCY AND OUR MERCY We do not show mercy when we do not experience and relive God's pathos or involving suffering in action on the behalf of all His children. We become a-p'ath o s or without mercy if we refuse to live by the norm of God's mercy in our sympathy and empathy toward others. When we do not care for each other with commitment of readiness to suffer for the other,we do not image God. We fail to be who we are called to be by God's electionrthose who perfect God's merciful love by showing mercy to all others. God's mercy is at the heart of who God is toward us. For us not to care is to cut ourselves off from God's revelation and remove ourselves from His presence. For God in the Old Test ame nt to show compassion (rachamin in Hebrew) and in the New Test ament (eleemos in Greek)means that He loves His people more tenderly than a shepherd loves his sheep, a mother her child, a bridegroom his bride. He is desirous of doing all to remove pain and suffering from His childr...

MERCY FOUND IN HOLY SCRIPTURE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

MERCY FOUND IN HOLY SCRIPTURE We can never understand God's mercy toward us by sheer human intelligence. God progressively reveals that He is mercy as He extends His trinitarian love in action toward His creatures. In the He se and Covenant that God established first with Abraham and then through Moses with God's chosen people in the desert,God promises to become involved with "suffering mercy" in His providential caring for His children. He condescends with His mercy which is not a concept of God with utter detachment "forgiving" the errors of His people. Mercy in the Old Testament is equivalent to St. Paul's concept of ch ar is or grace in the New Testament. God truly seeks to give Himself at every moment of His people's existence. He will protext them and restore to them full prosperity,granting them happiness as the fulfillment of all their desires. The chosen people responded with child-like confidence because they hoped in God's fidelity. "I have loved you with an everlasting ...

A GOD OF MERCY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

A GOD OF MERCY What we find on nearly every page of the Old Testament is that God is an active God showing compassion in His actions to help His people in their need. Moses and the Israelites sing in thanksgiving for their deliverance from Egyptian captivity:"Thy mercy had delivered Israel;thy mercy should be their guide"( Ex 15:13). In numerous revelations given to Moses on Sinai,God refers to Himself as "I,the ever merciful," (Ex 22 :27 ) and "I who grant mercy to whom I will" (Ex 33:19). Moses cried out:"It is the Lord God, the ruler of all things,the merciful..." (Ex 34:6). Yet God's mercy could never be presumed upon by His people if His people did not respond to return love and to show mercy to each other. Although God is willing to forgive,He is not indulgent nor indifferent to evil deserving of punishment. The Israelites had to fulfill their duties toward God. "Love me,keep my commandments,and mercy shall be thine a thousand-fold" (Dt 5:10). "He will have mercy on us,if he s...

MERCY IN THE PSALMS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

MERCY IN THE PSALMS The Psalms are really the book of mercy of the Old Testament. Nearly two-thirds of the psalms deal with the mercy of God or human response in hope and trust in God because of His mercy. Because the psalms were songs that were sung during religious services, the concept of God's limitless mercy toward His people stood at the center in Jewish piety and prayer. Mercy and hope predominate in the psalms since these virtues cannot be separated. Psalm 135 is typical of the psalms that glorify God's mercy. "Give thanks to the Lord for his goodness, his mercy is eternal;give thanks to the God of gods,his mercy is eternal;give thanks to the Lord of lords,his mercy is eternal" Ps 135 : 1-3 ) . Psalm 117 also emphasizes the everlasting quality of God's mercy." Give thanks to the Lord; the Lord is gracious,his mercy endures for ever. Echo the cry,sons of Israel; the Lord is gracious,his mercy endures for ever. His mercy endures for ever,echo the cry,sons of Aaron; his mercy e...

PROPHETIC AND WISDOM LITERATURE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

PROPHETIC AND WISDOM LITERATURE The prophets were commissioned by God to call the chosen people back from exile to a return to a loving relationship with God. They,too, emphasized the loving trust and confidence the Jews were to have in order to receive God's mercy. Typical of prophetic writing on mercy is that of Isaiah:"...and come back to the Lord,sure of his mercy,our God,so rich in pardon" (is 55:7). The writer of Ecclesiast icus represents the Wisdom literature that suggests what human persons had to do if they would receive mercy. "All you that fear the Lord,wait patiently for his mercies ; lose sight of him,and you shall fall by the way. Fear Him? Ay,and trust him; you shall not miss your reward. Fear him? Ay, and fix your hope in him;his mercy you shall find,to your great comfort...My sons,look back on the ages that are past; was ever man yet that trusted in the Lord and was disappointed,held fast to his commandments,and was forsaken,prayed to him,and found the prayer unreg...

MERCY IN THE GOSPELS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

MERCY IN THE GOSPELS The Old Testament prepared the world for the full manifestation of God's loving presence among us. Jesus,God-Man,was not merely a merciful person. He is Mercy. Because He is the perfect image of the unseen God (Col 1:15),He is God's mercy in human nature. Now we have the full revelation of God as mercy by seeing mercy in the humanity of Jesus. Now we know:God looks and acts like Jesus. Who sees Jesus mercy in the same way he/she can see how God is and acts out mercy. But Jesus also came to show us what we could become and how we should live mercifully toward all others as He did.He invites us from the pages of the Gospels and in the teachings of the Church and in the lives of the Saints to imitate the style of life He lived, "...and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble in heart,and you will find rest for your souls" (Mt 11:29). Jesus was merciful,not merely because He did merciful deeds that were seen by others,but because He existed always present to His He...

JESUS AND THE MERCIFUL FATHER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

JESUS AND THE MERCIFUL FATHER Jesus grew in wisdom,knowledge and grace before God and man (Lk 2:52). He was tempted in all things save sin (Heb 4:15). He was born into a human bloodline just as you and I. In His genetic pre-programming,He needed to experience the mercy of the Father in compassionate,merciful love meeting Jesus in His temptations and seeming abandonment by the Father. It is the terrifying abandonment by His loving Father on the cross that becomes for Jesus His last temptation and the greatest (Mk 15:34). Unlike the surrender of Himself in the desert temptations and in the Garden of Gethsemane where He is consoled by. the Father’s presence of an angel,on the cross darkness yields to more darkness.He who was without sin,"for our sake God made the sinless one into sin" (2 Cos 5:21). In spite of His tempt at ions,especially toward despair, Jesus pushes to new depths of holiness and loving surrender as He cries out for the mercy of the Father.He still gives Himself as gif...

PARABLE OF MERCY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

PARABLE OF MERCY Jesus summarized His teaching on God's mercy toward us and how we should show mercy to others in His parable about the merciless official (Mt 18:23-35). He shows that we cannot merely receive God's mercy in His forgiving love. We must also complete the circle through our caring mercy toward others in misery and need. We cannot show mercy to others,or be transformed into a gift of mercy to others unless we respond to others in and with the divine mercy and care of the indwelling triune God,living and being mercy to us in our brokenness and need. In this parable of God's mercy toward us and our response to others in mercy,we encounter the King,who calls his debtor,an official,to accept the King's offer to free him of his debt (Mt 18:27). The freed official failed to respond to the King's gift of freeing mercy by not showing a similar mercy to one in debt to him (18:29). The King banished the official from his sight as unworthy to remain in the royal presence (18:32-34...

OUR RESPONSE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1987

OUR RESPONSE What is to be our response to God's infinite mercy toward us? He has forgiven all our enormous debts of ingratitude and sin, indifference to Him and our lack of surrendering adoration to the eternal King. In prayer daily our response begins with experiencing profoundly God's compassionate mercy in our brokenness. His loving mercy fills us with child-like hope and trust in Him. We must avoid any despair which is a denial ofGod's love and active mercy in our sinfulness. We must also avoid pre sumpt seeking His mercy without any conversion on our part away from our self-centeredness. We need to develop a deep sense of reverence and awe and humility that build true and sincere relationships with God. The test of how God's mercy has transformed us will always be measured by the way we show mercy toward all others through the corporal and spiritual works that allow us to be God's continuing gift of infinite mercy to all His children by our gift of mercy in loving service and ...

Ddar 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! Welcome back from your "restful" summer vacation! The highlight for me was my lecturing to the Malabars in India during August. These are Catholics who have traditionally claimed St. Thomas the Apostle as the one who brought them Christianity. They have inherited the ancient East Syrian or Chaldean Rite,but from the 16th century, under the colonialists,the Portuguese,they have been subjected to serious lat inizat ion of their Oriental liturgy and ancient tradi- A N/ A tions. Since Vatican II and through a vibrant influx of many reli- £ • 00 00 0 A . \ • gious vocations to the religious and priestly life there is a _-V <3f.

CHILDLIKE ABANDONMENT AND DEEPER PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

CHILDLIKE ABANDONMENT AND DEEPER PRAYER Simone Weil has described prayer as a patient waiting with expectancy. It is a paradox of tension that combines the absence and the presence of God; the already and the not yet; the returning and the going; tender loving possession and the agony of searching for the lost. Prayer is a call to break the idols about God we have created according to our own self-centered needs. It is to answer God's call to conversion; to purify our hearts from the illusions of immortality,from the belief that we have an eternal beginning and no end and that we justify our own existence in ourselves. But to enter into the process of death to self-centeredness and a "passover" to a deeper union with the triune God requires a tremendous discipline on our part. We don't want to "let go" of our illusory power which we think we can exert over God and others. We find ourselves resisting at every turn. We '-w ill do almost anything to remain "up on surface," in command o...

TRUST IN GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1987

TRUST IN GOD But if we are truly resolved to "deny ourselves" in order to have a part with Christ (Mk 8:34; Mt 10:38),we need to develop a constant habit of childlike surrender of ourselves to God. We need to place all our trust in God's perfect and ever-unveiling love for us in the present moment. We need to learn how to "pray incessantly" (1 Th 5:17) by learning how to surrender in the context of each moment to God's guiding,loving providence through childlike trust in His perfect love for us. This childlike abandonment is not anything merely passive. Through constant purification by us of our hearts and continued neps is or vigilance to be attentive to God's energizing,"inbreaking" at all times,we Christians are called to "see" God working lovingly in all things. We are to contemplate Him as actively loving and caring for us in everything that happens. We are to strive to make St. Paul's words our daily experience:"We know that by turning everything to their good God co-operates ...
