A NEEDED CONVERSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

A NEEDED CONVERSION Jesus teaches us that we are to go deeply within ourselves into our hearts, as into an inner vessel, and there to purify ourselves. This conversion necessitates a continued movement away from our own self-centeredness. This is the spiritual warfare necessary to recognize what is ofddarknes s selfishness, false and inauthentic to our true self made in the likeness of Jesus Christ, the image of the Father. It means to put on the mind of Jesus Christ by an "inner revolution" (Eph 4:17) and through His Spirit to live in attentive obedience to His word, which He speaks to us in each human situation. It consists in an inward turning to attain an interior silence of the soul, of all the mental activities of our interior faculties of memory, understanding and will, and to allow the Spirit to pray within us in our weakness (Rm 8:26). Many spiritual persons have turned inwardly away from the noises of the physical world only to find deafening noises inside their "hearts." ...

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT To attain a childlike trust, joy and peace in God's embrace is a gift of God's % Spirit. Fruit of a deep union with God as the core of our being moves us outwardly to reflect the fruit of the Spirit that is love, peace, joy, gentleness and kindliness, patience and forbearance (Ga 5:22). We demonstrate this new life in all our horizontal relationships with all human beings and with the world around us. \ When the Spirit brings us into this new birth from above, we begin to experience true freedom. Jesus promised this: "If you make my word your home, you will indeed be my disciples, you will learn the truth and the truth will make you free" (Jn 8:31-32). Inward silence and inner integration come from an inner solitude where we learn to leave the outside, flattering world of the senses and our illusions. We descend into true poverty of spirit. This can only come through a hunger and thirst for the transcendent-immanent presence of the indwelling Trinity. St....

GROWTH IN PRAYER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

GROWTH IN PRAYER Our consciousness of being not only one with Christ in the divine life of the indwelling Trinity, but of living in this new life in all human relationships, is measured by the true litmus test of the fruit of such anew birth in Christ. This can be seen in the degree of intimacy with, and surrender to, God in our habitual prayer-life. As we pray before God, so we relate toward our neighbors. The first step in any deep interior prayer is an act of faith. I cannot stress this too much. Many of us run into prayer, and there is no atmosphere, no "environment," no composition of place, where we are to meet God in intimacy. Surely God is everywhere, and we enter prayer knowing that God fills all His creation. But we must avoid trying to pin God down or to force Him into one of our concepts or pictures of what we think Him to be. God must not be "localized" by our intellect. It is we who are in need of being localized in His presence. We need to gather all our scattered for...

PRAYER AS REFLECTION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

PRAYER AS REFLECTION In Christian prayer there is always a need for ordering the truths of faith. We begin with a method of "meditation" that enables us to reflect, ponder, measure, compare and organize. Here the basic activity revolves around the use of our own intellect and reasoning process on the matters of faith. This movement moves us to affections, toward the union with God, to feel, to touch the spiritual reality about which we are meditating. In a discursive manner, for example, we meditate on the Trinity, but always each mental activity is a preparatory step toward a living experience of the Trinity, not as a concept, but as the living God abiding with us as a community of love and communicating Himself to us. Therefore, we must start with God's revelations as revealed in Scripture, the prophetic word of God to us. The Bible is the objective grounding where we begin in order that we might meet the Living Word that has come down from the Father to teach us about Himself. "G...

A SIMPLE, LOVING PRESENCE TO GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

A SIMPLE, LOVING PRESENCE TO GOD As we move into this simple presence of the living Jesus, there is experienced a deep peace and quiet. We find that we are no longer "doing" things. We are in the state of merely being in His presence. We find, also, that there might be long periods of dryness, where we seem to be getting nowhere. We have nothing with which to measure our progress. We are moving into a state of being through the Holy Spirit's increased gifts of faith, hope and love. Hence, we have no longer any standard measurement of our being present to the Lord, except by moving out into the concrete world around us. In contact with God's creation, especially with other human beings, we can test how deeply our "second life" has taken root in God, our Ultimate. A true sign of our growth in this second dawn of life in deeper union with God is that, as we move out into the world around us, the Divine Word, the risen Jesus, becomes a presence surrounding everything and everyone. He is...

WINTER IS PAST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

WINTER IS PAST We discover the paradox of our second life in Christ. In dryness and apparent sterility and even death-dealing situations, He appears suddenly as a flashing light that illumines the dark desert and all the sweetness that was earlier felt becomes very empty in comparison to the new level of loving presence and union experienced with Jesus Our Lord. The desert springs into new life, full of flowers in full bloom, a promise of great fruit. One enters into anew world. Solitude is no longer solitude. God appears everywhere in everything. He shows Himself in corners that were before very obscure. Now everything is impregnated by His holy presence. Everything that touches us calls us to our center where God dwells within us. Our mind plunges into the inner, intimate depths of things through the Holy Spirit* We find God always as the immanent principle sustaining all creatures in being. No longer is there a sacred and a secular or a profane world. Instead, we now move, not as...

LOVE OF OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1987

LOVE OF OTHERS The more you are raised to the intimate presence of God, the more you enter into a communion with other human beings. There develops within you a genuine sense of being one with the whole world, of being open and really of giving yourself to the world and, more specifically, to the community in which you find yourself, your family, your relatives and friends, your parish, your neighbor and community. The increase of love of God within you cannot kill your love for other human beings and for this entire world that is being created now by God, Who invites you also to be a co-creator by your loving service toward others. True love of God will always be a true love for other human beings, measured not by feeling, but by the mindset that Jesus had. It is always the same Divine Love of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, Who brings about this new birth, and new life, as we become more united to Jesus Christ. This second dawn of life can be simply described in the words of St. Joh...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with you! For many of you, this month of January will find you fleeing indoors, away from the cold and wind of winter's rage. Yet, it is also the beginning of the New Year of 1988. What exciting happenings await us! What enriching possibilities God is offering us for our eternal growth! We, therefore, launch out on our continued journey of faith with childlike trust in Christ's promise of His Spirit. I have chosen, since this is the Marian Year, the topic: MARY MYSTICAL ROSE. She received God's call to give birth to Jesus the Savior. What an exciting nine months awaited her as she prepared her womb to become the temple for the indwelling Christ! In her weakness (as ours, also), she asked how all this would be possible. The answer she received from God's messenger simply was: "The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the M...

MARY-- MYSTICAL ROSE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

MARY-- MYSTICAL ROSE A necessary element of our spiritual life, if we are to continue to make progress, is to reflect on our past journey in order to see where we have come from and to where we intend to go. The spiritual life, or our union with the indwelling Trinity as unveiled through faith, hope and love by the gifts of the Holy Spirit, reveals itself to us as something at times very complex, made up of many disharmonious factors that, at a given time, do not seem to make much sense to us. But, as we reflect at the distance covered, the highs of the mountains of consolations and the low flats of desolations begin to manifest a certain oneness and harmony. I guess that is why the title given to Mary by the faithful as the Mystical Rose takes on more meaning for me in my more matured years of life. Our mystical life, like that of Mary's, is a gradual unfolding of tightly packed potentialities of inner beauty that cannot be seen or admired, except through the unfolding. As you and ...

A ROSE IS MORE THAN A ROSE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

A ROSE IS MORE THAN A ROSE There is something always joyful in me when I gaze upon a rosebush filled with rosebuds. The buds already contain what will burst out in a few minutes of sunshine and growth. What inner beauty is already there! What harmony that awaits the explosion of God's love, revealed in an unfolding rose! I once wrote in a poem these words that, in reflecting upon Mary, the Mystical Rose, I can now see as referring, also, to her progress in mystical oneness with God. They also could refer to the unfolding of the mystical gifts locked so deeply within our hearts, waiting to unfold in the fullness of a rose of "exquisite beauty." Locked-in petals of a bedewed rose Gently let go To unveil anew harmony of many things captured In the union of one flower of exquisite beauty!

MARY'S ABSORPTION IN GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

MARY'S ABSORPTION IN GOD As you and I reflect upon the influence of Mary upon our spiritual growth, we see her life, and ours as well, unfolding in a process of gradual opening to God's presence in her and our own lives. She observes, ponders and acts. Nothing escapes her inner attention, as she finds deeper and deeper meaning in each thought reflected upon each event as it unfolds in her life. "Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart" (Lk 2:19). Mary, like any Christian contemplative, had to learn to walk by faith, hope and love. We can believe that the great faith she needed to give her fiat to the message of the angel had been prepared by series of acts of faith developed throughout Mary's life, as she contemplated God's message unfolding in her life, even before the Annunciation. We see her deep spirit of contemplative faith when we examine Lk 1:37: "For nothing is impossible to God," with the faith that was required of Abraham and Sarah (Gn 18:14). Mary had to w...

FEMININE POWER OF CONTEMPLATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

FEMININE POWER OF CONTEMPLATION Each of us human persons becomes a true Christian through the development or unfolding of the feminine powers of contemplation that lie deeply within our unconscious. It is to open oneself with the totality of one's being, to stretch in active receptivity and in surrendering love toward the Transcendent God. It is to receive consciously the love that God first has for us human beings and, thus, in contemplating God as immanently present within, as Mary did in her lifetime, to make a response in total obedience in love. Jesus appeals to the feminine in each of us when He asks us: "If you love me, keep my commandments" (Jn 14:15). Mary's response was: "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to thy word" (Lk 1:38). This is why Mary, the contemplative, is the archetypal symbol of the feminine in all of us. We come alive as Christians, the Church becomes the dynamic, living Body of Christ, when we cooperate to let unfold the feminine...

MARY -- THE SIGN OF CHRISTIANITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

MARY -- THE SIGN OF CHRISTIANITY Mary stands as the sign of the distinct quality of the Christian Church, holding out to each human individual a synthesis of the perfect human being. She is the "place" where God's transcendence and immanence meet. She opens her whole being in silent contemplation of the awesome, majestic God, and she hungers and thirsts to receive of His fullness. She embraces, womb-like, God's gift of Himself. She yields to His love by a return of love that proves itself in complete, docile obedience to Him. Mary, as Virgin, is the archetype of the integrated human being, or better, as the human person on journey to become integrated and whole. In her contemplation of God's supremacy, she experiences her creaturely poverty. She chastely desires to give her total being back to God in surrendering love. In complete obedience to God's wishes, she opens herself as virginal earth to God's fertility. She receives the Divine Seed which God, the Sower, casts into the earth...

THE COURAGE OF MARY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

THE COURAGE OF MARY Mary will always be the model of all of us who wish to go the total way in following God's holy will, cost what it may to the individual. Persons do heroic deeds in war, in overcoming the force of nature. But there is a conquest of the human heart that requires the greatest courage. In this area, women have been outstanding in their sensitivity to God's demands and in their generous self-giving in response to God and neighbor. And Mary is the most courageous woman of them all for she surrendered herself totally. She allowed God to do with her whatever He wished. She made her choice each moment of her life to allow God to be God in her life. "You shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength" (Dt 6:5). Her oblation in the Annunciation summed up, not a theological position, but the way she had lived all her life and the way she wanted to live her whole life for all eternity: "I am the handmaid of the Lord; let what you h...

THE SWORD OF SORROW [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

THE SWORD OF SORROW True mystical union with God cannot come about unless there be the suffering that comes from the sacrifice of one's self, one's ecjo, in a true dying that brings forth an unfolding of new life and new oneness with God's very own being. We see the Mystical Rose before it unfolded all its inner beauty, much like a rosebud, containing so much potential within itself, needing only the dying to unveil the life already there. We see this lesson brought out in the prophecy of Simeon in the temple. Mary brought her treasure to the temple to offer herself along with Him, Jesus, as a total gift to God. He was all she would live for. Simeon, prompted by the Holy Spirit, recognized her in her poverty and reverence. He approached and took the Child Jesus from her arms. He is the new Israel, "the glory of your people, Israel" (Lk 2:32). Turning to Mary, Simeon spoke these words that foretold what the valiant woman would have to suffer because she wanted only to be God's handma...

THE WOMAN OF THE DARK DESERT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

THE WOMAN OF THE DARK DESERT Mary's suffering would unfold in her submissive obedience to the will of God. There would be no one moment, not even at the foot of the cross, that would satisfy this prophecy of Simeon. Mary becomes the mother of Jesus Christ, not merely at Bethlehem, but more so in a progressive surrendering of herself in the darkness of faith, hope and love to serve her Lord. As she suffers with Christ, He becomes more fully born. His Body is the Church. Mary's sufferings must be seen on a deeper level than what Christian meditation usually wrings out of meditating on her flight into Egypt, her seeking her lost Son in Jerusalem, her witnessing of Him dying on the cross. When we go to the Johannine writings, especially the Gospel and the Book of Revelation, we open ourselves to the mystery of Mary that lies even beyond the historical details that the Synoptic writers offer us about Mary. We find Mary, the mother of Jesus, portrayed as involved in the history of salvati...

THE PANGS OF CHILDBIRTH [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1988

THE PANGS OF CHILDBIRTH John portrays the woman in the desert as pregnant and in labor, crying out as she suffers to bring forth her child. We can see, as commentators have pointed out, that John uses woman both in Rv. 12:1 and in the Cana and Calvary narratives in a typological sense that goes beyond either Mary individually, or the Church, yet that embraces both at the same time. Mary is the prototype of the Church because she is the mother of Jesus Christ. Christ is in His Church as the Head to His Body. It is Mary who gave birth to this one Christ, Who continues as the same Christ in the Church. Mary, therefore, is the spiritual mother of all the members of the Church. It is not by any adoption in a symbolic way at the foot of the cross when she takes John, the beloved disciple, as her son that she is our mother and, therefore, a true sign of our Mother, the Church, but solely because she is, and always will be, the mother of Jesus Christ. We are her offspring because we have be...
