CONTEMPLATION AND MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

CONTEMPLATION AND MARRIAGE Has it ever struck you that,even though marriage is a sacrament in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches,there are almost no married couples canonized as saints who attained sanctity in and through the state of matrimony? This does not mean that the Church leaders do not believe there are many married persons in Heaven. We have all suffered from an inadequate theology of marriage. Preachers all too often exalted,as the Fathers of the Council of Trent in the 16th century did,the state of celibacy as superior to the state of matrimony . All of us have come from married persons,no doubt the majority were Christians,who should have become great persons of prayer and of passionate love for God,for each other and for their children.Do you think our parents were encouraged to find God in their very intimate moments of loving each other? How often have you seen your parents holding each other lovingly before their children? That was something reserved for their bedro...

DESTRUCTIVE JANSENISM [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

DESTRUCTIVE JANSENISM Jansenism of the 17th and 18th centuries was a teaching that feared the inroads of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and sought to popularize St. Augustin e's teachings,especially in regard to one's attitude toward the world,sex,marriage. We could ask whether there could have possibly been a totally different attitude toward marriage and sex if not the writings of St.Agustine had been followed and instead the more biblical insights found in the Fathers of the Christian East. Such writers and mystics,such as St.lrenaeus,St.John Chrysostom, St.Maximus the Confessor,St.Symeon the New Theologian and St. Gregory Palamas did not separate God's graceful activities from His involvement in this material world. Human nature was never conceived from Scripture and their writings as basically corrupt and always sinful and upon this nature God had to build a "supernatural" world of sanctifying grace. Let us attempt to build a vision of God's gift of the sacrament of matr...

LOVE ONE ANOTHER [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

LOVE ONE ANOTHER Christians should be the greatest lovers on esarth. What others accept by an instinctual,primal reasoning of the heart,Christians accept also by faith. But their faith in God's infinite love for them empowers them to love with God's very own love. Such a faith convinces Christians of their uniqueness as persons since God creates each one in a life-long creative process to receive His personal gift of Himself in the event of each moment. More than this,we Christians believe that God's fullness of love has been shown when He gave us His only begotten Son (Jn 3:16). Through His death on the cross and by His resurrectional presence within us and inside the whole material world, Jesus releases the Spirit of His Father,who makes us aware that we are truly God's children (Rm 8:15; Ga 4:6). Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us, by letting us be called God's children; and that is what we are... we are already the children of God but what we are to be in the f...

TRUE LOVE-THE SPIRIT'S GIFT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

TRUE LOVE-THE SPIRIT'S GIFT To receive God's love and to surrender yourself to His indwelling Spirit so as to return your love to God by God's grace means a letting go. This is an on-going process of replacing yourself as your center of reference with that of God. Only after some years of abandoning yourself as your center in deep faith to center upon God do you enter upon this threshhold of consciousness, a gift of prayer wherein you live aware constantly of God's indwelling presence. You experience deep down,by the power of the Holy Spirit,that your true self is loved constantly by God. This same Spirit brings forth His fruit and gifts so that you are turned outward toward others in love "because the love of Christ overwhelms us" (2 Cos 5:14). The Spirit of Jesus in your heart allows you,not only to know the Father and the Son's presence as loving you,but He impels you in the power of that great love to love other human beings with God's universal love. Because in prayer you are c...

UNSELFISH LOVE FOR OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

UNSELFISH LOVE FOR OTHERS True love for God brings forth an intense and strong love for others. As you grow in greater awareness of the indwelling Presence in the deepest center of your being,at the same time you become conscious of this dame divine,loving presence in,surrounding and penetrating all other things. The same energizing,loving God experienced within,is seen in each creature met along the road of life. All things shout out to you that,not only do such gifts from God show forth, "unveil" a bit of His beauty,but that God is "inside" the gifts. Touching the gifts,you touch the Giver and adore Him. You surrender yourself to His loving presence in that moment of encountering God in the incarnation of that moment in matter. Gone are the anxious,aggressive moods to dominate each situation to satisfy your physical and psychic needs. Anew global sense of God's presence is discovered in the "sacrament of the present moment." The whole material world reveals God's loving presence i...

THE MYSTERY OF MARRIAGE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

THE MYSTERY OF MARRIAGE Let us apply the above theology of Christian love to Christian marriage. When two people marry,they submit themselves to live in a world of mystery. There is awe and wonderment. There is also an opening to one's own areas of darkness,hidden deeply within the various levels of the consciousness and unconscious as well as to the brokenness and imperfections in the other partner. There is a call to integration as a whole person through unselfish love given at each mo- ment of married life. Above all,for Christians who accept marriage as a sacrament in which the husband and wife are prayerfully,in deep faith,hope and love,they believe that they can meet Jesus Christ as the transforming Savior who takes their sincere,loving desires and brings them into anew and intense oneness not known in any other human union. Because marriage brings together the uncreated energies of God,loving and giving Himself to the married couple,it remains always a mystery that must be ap...

MARRIAGE AS SACRAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

MARRIAGE AS SACRAMENT A sacrament is not a thing to be received by us. It is a mysterious action of Jesus Christ,extended through His Church,to communicate His living and gloriously resurrected life to us. In encountering this energizing life of Christ,which is a share in the total,trinitarian action toward us,we can be transformed and share in the very life of the Trinity. In marriage Jesus gives Himself to two people. They can share, if they open up to His presence in their daily lives,in His love and freeing power. They,too,can actually experience in their own self-giving to each other the very self-giving of God to each other and to the both of them as a one. This is a great mystery,St.Paul says:"....ln the same way,husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies;for a man to love is wife is for him to love himself. A man never hates his own body,but he feeds it and looks after it; and that is the way Christ treats the Church,because it is his body-and we are its li...

BODIES THAT ARE HOLY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

BODIES THAT ARE HOLY By a living incarnational approach to marriage, such couples can break through a pessimistic Jansenism to begin to experience God at the heart of matter. They can begin to experience themselves as individuals and as a one body in marriage in a holistic manner. No longer will they view themselves composed of two contradictory parts:body and soul. They become "ensouled" bodies,total persons,passing over from the confining limits imposed by sinful selfishness,to reach new levels of oneness both with themselves and with God. The material body as sexual,as that of the human Christ,becomes important and an opening to the Holy. The body is the visible part of one,indivisible,unique person. We become present as a loving person with a unique identity with all our own I-ness in and through the physical body. Surely the human Jesus found the presence and divinizing action of His Father's loving Spirit in His own bodiliness as well as that of other human beings whom He met ...

FALSE CONTEMPLATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

FALSE CONTEMPLATION The real test of how you contemplate and pray before God is seen in how you contemplate God in the uniqueness of the person whom you encounter. The test of how contemplative husbands and wives are is seen in the degree of nuptial-mindset that they show each other,both in sexual intercourse but also in the every-day living and loving in that same spirit of contemplating the beauty of the other as each moves moment by moment away from self-centeredness. I often ask myself in counseling married persons why are they not more in love (and hence more prayerful)with each other after ten,twenty years of marriage than when they began their married life. I think both the problem of contemplative prayer and marriage centers around the fear all human beings have of going deeper into intimate relationships with other human beings and with God. In marriage especially one's autonomy is threatened by closeness. Persons can reject each other and possess each other. But when they ...

TRANSFORMATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 September 1984

TRANSFORMATION Marriage is a microcosm of society and the entire universe. The cosmic Christ is present in the whole universe,effecting by the "game of the resurrection" a transformation of humanity and the sub-human cosmos into His very own Body,the Church. The same risen Christ is present in the lives of two married persons,pouring into them the energies of God's love. As they open themselves to His presence in their intimate love,they gain strength to believe in the transfiguring power of God who is infinitely beyond their own possibilities. They can believe that,out of each one's petty moods,carelessness and momentary lapses into self-centeredness, something beautiful can evolve if each partner can transcend such crosses and deaths to rise in hope to new loving,self-giving and true contemplative prayer as they discover God at the heart of their total oneness with each other.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Cambridge, mass. 02138 May the mercies of our Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be always with youl Last week in a five day retreat to a mixed group of men and women, young and old, a young college girl asked me whether I minded if she came to Mass in shorts. I believed she was religious enough and saw no lack of reverence in her wearing shorts to Mass and in receiving the Eucharist. But I pointed out that several more "conservative" retreatants probably would be a bit shocked. So she wore her jeans I I reflected on that experience and thought it would be worth a teaching in INSCAPE to present something on the importance of reverence. Would you not agree with me that external reverence which surely flows out of the interior of the individual has fallen upon difficult times? Giving the Body and Blood of Christ to Catholics in the Liturgy I often am pained at seeing,especially among the young,so littl...

TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES. THIS PLACE IS HOLY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES. THIS PLACE IS HOLY One of the most needed virtues or attitudes we Westerners lack is that of reverence. We know that we are called to praise, reverence and serve God in order to obtain eternal life. Praise comes readily to our lips from grateful hearts,both in our liturgical services and in our individual prayer time before the Lord. We also are keenly aware that faith without good works done in loving service of our neighbor is dead as St. James wrote (Ja 2:17). But do you not feel that everywhere, in our churches,homes,market places,reverence has been largely lost? Children do not show reverence toward their parents and teachers. The increase in unhappy and even broken marriages would indicate a lack of reverence between many husbands and wives. Surely we see a general lack both of external and internal reverence in our prayer periods,especially in Sunday Mass. Whoever stays a few minutes anymore after Holy Communion to remain in grateful reverence and adorati...

AN IRREVERENT WORLD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

AN IRREVERENT WORLD Yet/contrary to God's plan,we have produced through modern technology a Frankenstein. Instead of reverence toward God,toward each human being,toward the air we breathe and the nature we encounter in prayerful creativity,we stand as exploiters to rape the God-given natural resources. The earth's deposit of natural resources is rapidly being consumed,leaving slag heaps and oceans of garbage. Fumes from man's machines rise up to cloud the atmosphere with a gaseous curtain that may throttle eventually any green life on planet earth. We have lost reverence for human life. Millions of embryonic lives are aborted yearly in an ever-mounting holocaust that tells us something is sick with our modern society. The threat of nuclear war hangs realistically over the entire universe with a power to wipe away all modern civilizations in a matter of minutes. We stand huddled together in fear as we contemplate such apocalyptic visions of an impending doomed earth. We have lost rev...

WHAT IS REVERENCE? [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

WHAT IS REVERENCE? In the Old Testament we are given two profound examples of reverence toward God. Moses saw a burning bush that somehow or other did not burn up. He approached it with his human reason,wondering how this was possible. But he fell back in awesome revernece as he heard the voice of God speak from in the burning bush:"Come no nearer. Take off your shoes, for the place on which you stand is holy ground..." At this Moses covered his face,afraid to look at God (Ex 3:5-6). The prophet Isaiah was swept up in vision before the throne of God and was fear-full as he reverenced the supreme holiness of God. He saw how the six-winged Seraphs covered their faces and their feet and cried out constantly: 'Holy,holy,holy is Yahweh Sabaoth. His glory fills the whole earth.' ...I said:'What a wretched state I am in! I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have looked at the King,Yahweh Sabaoth' (Is 6:3-5). In the Old Testament r...

REVERENCE AS FILIAL LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

REVERENCE AS FILIAL LOVE At the level of a moral virtue,reverence reaches its highest form of expression in showing indebtedness toward God,as Source of all being and goodness. In this sense reverence belongs to the virtue of religion and is a manifestation of adoration. Adoration is the honor paid to another because of his superior excellence. There are three types of excellence:divine, created supernatural,created natural. Thus we adore God completely. We offer reverence and veneration to saints and angels; and then we show reverence to persons of authority and dignity as the pope,bishops,kings presidents etc. But reverence in a higher,theological sense is connected with charity as filial love for the Heavenly Father. To love the Father as Jesus did in His humanity is to love Him in a way that corresponds to His divine Fatherhood and grace given to His sonship. On this level reverence carries with a fear,not from justice,but a filial fear out of dread of separating from the Father...

REVERENCE FOR A LOVING GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

REVERENCE FOR A LOVING GOD As we understand ourselves in relationship to God and to the world, so our inner attitude of reverence with its accompanying external enfleshment of that interior experience of God will vary according to our understanding. Take for example the simple act of genuflection when you enter your church or chapel. When you genuflected as a child,you did it mechanically as the thing you were taught to do. Now hopefully as an adult experienced in life and much deeper in faith than when you were a child, you genuflect,doing the very same action of reverence toward God,but now you perform such an act with "deeper" reverence,with deeper interiority,with deeper realization of how good God is to you,how you are privilege to love Him who has loved you so much in Christ Jesus. Reverence is,therefore,both interior and exterior. As your faith deepens,you experience more of God's holiness,His all-ness. He alone is worthy to be praised and worshipped. Still we are confused in...

OUR SINFULNESS AND YEARNING FOR UNION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 October 1984

OUR SINFULNESS AND YEARNING FOR UNION The second element of true filial reverence is that of standing before the all-holy,good and loving God and experiencing your personal unworthiness. Perhaps the most striking case of this element before the holiness and power of Christ is the response of Peter when Jesus filled the nets with fish. Here we see,besides the awe and fear that come from contact with the "holiness" in Jesus,there comes over Peter a healthy,existential sense of his individual sinfulness and alienation away from God. It is the sense of "sin in the members" of St. Paul that he confesses to in Rm 7:23. Not only was Peter astonished at the miracle which had taken place, but he was overwhelmed by the sense of his basic inferiority or unworthiness to be in the presence of one so great as Jesus. He cried out:"Depart from me,for I am a sinful man,o Lord" (Lk 5:18).We should note,far from becoming a barrier to St. Peter's union with Christ,his very sinfulness and expressing it ...
