PURE OF HEART [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1992

PURE OF HEART Her joy flowed out of her purity of heart. "Happy are the pure of heart; they shall see God" (Mt 5:8). This earth has never seen a vessel as pure as Mary. We can say that we will never see a more "human" person than Mary. She saw reality as closely as God sees it. God infused into her a purified vision that permitted Mary to see the "insideness" of God's presence. She reverenced that presence and humbly strove to serve God's will in each circumstance. "Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word" (Lk 1:38). Our devotion to Mary has stressed in times past her purity. What the Holy Spirit is moving us to appreciate in Mary is her humanness, her growth in faith that necessitated vital contacts with a material world,with real women,men and children that have bodies and passions, moods and depressions. As she gave herself to God in each person,her knowledge and understanding and wisdom of God,of herself and of humankind grew. Nazareth w...

THE FREEDOM OF MARY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1992

THE FREEDOM OF MARY Mary was,to use St. Paul's analogy,Sarah, the free woman,the sign of the heavenly Jerusalem, in contrast to Hagar, the slave woman,the sign of the Jewish nation enslaved by the law. Entering into an ever-deepening awareness that she was a child of the heavenly Father through the power of the Holy Spirit that overshadowed her constantly freed Mary to be the freest human being this world will ever see. For she at all times strove not to fulfill merely the law, but to open herself to become more and more the servant of the Lord. She shows us that Christian freedom is an ongoing gift to us by the Holy Spirit. Freedom is to obey God,to take our whole life in our hands and dispose it totally in loving service to God. True freedom is not concerned so much with choosing good over evil as with determining ourselves in all choices according to the good pleasure of God. Mary,by the Spirit,knew her nature was such that the imperative to obey God was freedom to act as her tot...

HOPE AND LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1992

HOPE AND LOVE Her faith led her holiness to a strong hope that with God all things are possible. God could do whatever he wished with her. She would hope for a greater fulfillment of God's glory even though she already had experienced a great share in that glory. But her joy and holiness have to be measured and described in terms of love that in Mary grew out of the Spirit's faith and hope operating within her at each moment of her life. Mary was freed to love and she found that true love that is always self-sacrificing love on behalf of others,always brings forth true joy. And such joy no one can take away from her. She freely placed herself in service to God's Word,an inner presence of God's Ive incarnated and living within her. As she received in prayer experiences Gr._ s ove calling her to participate in a re- turn of love,[’ary became progressively more free to love others by seeking to serve them with the greatest joy. She experienced always the paradox,that to be free is to b...

TRUE JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1992

TRUE JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Perhaps the answer to why you and I are not more holy and more joyful lies in our lack of readiness to truly live in the agape love of God's Spirit. Perhaps we are busy seeking a joy more related to pleasant feelings than to true love and peace. Such a joy resides deeply within our soul and spirit levels rather than on that of our lower physical appetites. It is not a joy in which there is no sorrow, since sorrow and joy can co-exist,as Jesus and Mary show us in their earthly lives. True joy is not "of this world," that is,it is not based solely on the selfish pleasure of "having something." True joy is built upon two conditions: first,there must be a whole giving out of love and, second, there must be a desire to give for the sake of the other and not for oneself. Where there is no true "passover" experience of thinking in terms of agapic love toward others,there can be nothing but a false joy that will always turn into sadness eventually when love asks ...

BECOMING A GIFT OF JOY TO OTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 May 1992

BECOMING A GIFT OF JOY TO OTHERS Whenever I think of the joy of Mary I cannot but think also of how she strove to be a gift of joy to others who entered into her daily life. If we are to be the extension of Jesus Christ risen,then to the degree that we rejoice in the gift of God's Spirit of joy indwelling us,to that degree the Holy Spirit pours out through us the gift of joy to others to whom we are sent to become joy to them as we lovingly serve them. Such joyful love demands an openness to all whom we meet so that we are available in joyful readiness to live for their happiness. To be so available we must look upon others with a joyful hope in their innate goodness. This is at the root of Mary's holiness and fullness of joy.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

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 month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. He still calls us, his disciples, to come to him and leam of him for he is meek and humble of heart (Mt. 11:28-29). So I have chosen this important topic of humility which is the true index of how holy and joyful at all times we will be as we live in the truth that God-Trinity alone is the Source of all being. We are emptied receptacles to be filled with God's goodness. All that we have and all that we are has come to us from him. Yet we do not always live in God's truth. We are not free to be always grateful to God for all his gifts, but we are slaves to our pride. Our lives are full of lies. Our self-centeredness and pride convince us that we can live independently of God. We refuse to believe that only God is God and from him we have received everything, excep...

A JOYOUS HUMILITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

A JOYOUS HUMILITY We live in a false world that we continually create within ourselves and show on the movie screen of our own minds. No one except us comes to this interior theater, but we hardly notice, so in love are we with our own false image and its creator, ourselves. In every movie we play the hero, refusing to see that we are also the villain. We fear God’s terrifying punishment, God's self-revelation as utterly different from our poor selves. And so we hide, not behind fig leaves as did Adam and Eve in their nakedness, but behind the masks and games that separate us from God, from our oncehonest child-selves, and from the world around us. Like all pathological liars, in the end we come to believe our own lies. In our "splendid isolation" we tell the world we are happy and healthy, even as we drink, drug, and eat ourselves to death. We desperately seek to be loved by others rather than to love them, and we try to take their love by force. We destroy the very love we crave i...

MADE TO BE CHILDREN OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

MADE TO BE CHILDREN OF GOD Although sin abounds in us, grace does more abound. Our bodies and souls are meant by God's eternal plan to be joined into a likeness of God's incarnate Word, Jesus Christ. We can become healed and made whole by God's grace in Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We are our unique, true selves when we realize that we are truly children of God, sons and daughters of the Most High, and brothers and sisters of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ. God overturns the values that guide us to choose what our false egos say we should choose. Money, power, aggression, and separation are to be replaced by the defenseless love of Jesus. God chose, especially in the suffering and death of his Son, to confound the proud of this world. "For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness is stronger than human strength" (1 Cos. 1:22-25). God's wisdom, so different from the wisdom of this world, flows out gently through the overwhelming Spirit of love...

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT ALL FEAR [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT ALL FEAR If God’s love had not reached out ecstatically through Jesus, we would have remained always in our self-centered pride since we would not have known how much God truly loves us and wants us to share in his love. We would have held on to all our dark doubts and ancestral fears. Because God sees us each as unique and worthy individuals, God gives birth to us again in anew life, mothering our true self in Christ. When we see Jesus broken and emptied on the cross, we truly see the Father in his love for each of us (Jn. 14:9). Jesus mirrors God's love for us in his free gift of himself out of love. Hearing his words, we hear the voice of God, who promises to gather all of us as healed children as we become one with Jesus in the gift of himself. Jesus risen is always calling all of us to come to him and leam of him how to live in true love and joy: "..and leam from me, for I am meek and humble of heart..." (Mt. 11:29). We his disciples must study him for he...

HUMILITY: THE BASIS OF ALL VIRTUES [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

HUMILITY: THE BASIS OF ALL VIRTUES Let us seek to explore this topic of humility that summarizes the values that Jesus lived by and which he asks us to live by likewise if we are to discover our true self in our intimate union with him. Just as all our good works and virtues are meaningless if we are not primarily motivated by true love (1 Cos. 13:1-13), so also humility is the precondition and basic foundation for all authentic virtues. This is true because humility is the true and right relationship of ourselves to God, neighbor, and all of creation. It has its essence and strength in the knowledge, given by the Holy Spirit through the gifts of faith, hope, and love, that it is God who works in all creatures. Our true self finds its greatest dignity in yielding to him in perfect, childlike trust and abandonment in full consent to be obedient to his will and to do nothing independently of God as the complete Source of all that exists. St. James writes in his epistle: M God resists ...

THE INFECTION OF PRIDE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

THE INFECTION OF PRIDE Pride is always very close to our every thought, word, and deed, ready to remove God as the ultimate Source of all gifts, even of all we are or can accomplish. It exalts ourselves as the center of all our values. Pride brings into our lives a stubborn will that refuses to live according to the image and likeness of God which dignity he holds out to us as the basis for true harmony, joy, and peace. Pride destroys our true freedom which consists in choosing to take our lives and freely determine to give ourselves in return to God for his self-emptying gift of himself to us in Jesus. Humility, on the other hand, comes into our lives by the freeing power of the Holy Spirit who leads us out of slavery to sin and death and the law into true liberty as God's daughters and sons. The Christian under the spirit of Jesus risen understands that slavery to egoism is destroyed by Jesus' great personal love for each of us individually. True freedom is now revealed as God's l...

HUMILITY, THE BASIS OF TRUE CHRISTIAN JOY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

HUMILITY, THE BASIS OF TRUE CHRISTIAN JOY We can now begin to see how humility is also the foundation of all true Christian joy. Joy follows from our living in humility as Jesus lived on this earth. He found joy in each moment of his life as he put his Father as the center of all his human choices. He strove, as we must also, to allow his Father to be all in his thoughts, words, and deeds. Jesus "humbled” himself in obedience to the Father's will, and for this reason the Father raised him up and exalted him (Ph. 2:6-13). "The Son can do nothing of himself’ (Jn. 5:19). Jesus teaches us that all joy and peace came to him because in his humility he freely surrendered himself with all his powers to allow the Father to work in his life (Jn. 5:17). He was always joyful in his submission and dependence upon the Father's will. Because Jesus humbled himself to the Father, he found it possible to humble himself also as the suffering servant to all who came into his life, since he had "passed ...

ELEMENTS OF TRUE HUMILITY AND SOURCE OF JOY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

ELEMENTS OF TRUE HUMILITY AND SOURCE OF JOY Since humility and joy are so intimately connected, as a foundation is connected to an upper building, the elements that make up true Christian humility also make up true Christian joy. The first element in a joyful humility is the active awareness we must have of the omnipotent and omniscient, all-loving and all-good God the primal Creator of all creatures and the goal toward whom all creatures move as toward their fulfillment. We must see that we come from God as rational creatures, called by God's free election (Eph. 1:4-6) to share in his triune life. All that we are and all that we receive comes to us through God's active, gratuitous, free choice. As creatures, we are not the center of our being, but we owe all to God's free will. We receive all our being from God. He is the one who is, while we, in the words of St. Irenaeus of the 2nd century, are "empty receptacles to be filled with God's goodness." We can only be non-being if we ar...

WORSHIPFUL ADORATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

WORSHIPFUL ADORATION This element of humility is the first stage of the conversion of prodigal son and daughter by the long-awaiting, forgiving Father. "I am unworthy to be called your child." Yet, this is a joyous response to live in total surrender to God. It recognizes humbly one's nothingness and unworthiness in the light of a such a non-being life in which God was excluded as the center and source of all life and power. It, above all, reaches out in worshipful adoration toward so tenderly loving and forgiving a God. Before, our prideful ego sovereignty defied and excluded God's supremacy in our value system. But now, a reverence for God's greatness and perfection brings about a humble abandonment to live as St. Ignatius in his Spiritual Exercises writes: Ad majorem dei gloria--for the greater glory of God . Such purity of heart and reverence are shown in a practice of St. Paul's exhortation: "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God" (...

KNOWLEDGE OF SELF IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

KNOWLEDGE OF SELF IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD St. Francis of Assisi gives us the second element of true humility and source of authentic Christian joy in his words: "Who art thou, and who am I?" We encounter in God's awesome transcendence ourselves in both our sinfulness and weakness, our areas of brokenness deeply embedded within the labyrinthine layers of our unconscious. We humbly recognize that God is the Source of our entire being, which brings about anew and personalized relationship between each of us as individuals with God as Trinity. This mighty God tenderly loves us like a mother (Is. 49:15-16; Is. 43:1). A strange alchemy occurs on the spiritual level of our relationships with the triune God. We become more intensely aware of our own inability to live as we ought by our own power. In our weakness we now learn to trust in God's burning love for each of us in our uniqueness. Our very weakness now becomes our strength when we place all our hope in Christ's love (2 Cos. 12:9-10)...

CHILDLIKE ABANDONMENT TO GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 June 1992

CHILDLIKE ABANDONMENT TO GOD The third and most intense element of true humility is the degree of childlike abandonment we give to God in the present moment as we trust in his infinite goodness and love for us to be our strength when we are weakest. How childlike is the statement of St. Therese of Lisieux at the basis of her "little way:" Jesus has pleased to show me the one and only road that leads to the Furnace of Love. This is the abandonment of a little child that goes to sleep without fear in the arms of his Father. Such childlike faith and trust are graceful gifts of God's personal presence to the broken, little ones of his Kingdom. He condescends to come to their side to help them. He pledges his unconditional word that he will always be faithful (Ps. 145:13). When we are given such a gift of God’s presence as dynamically loving us in every event and moment, then complete abandonment is our true response to his fidelity. ’’With God on our side who can be against us?" (Rm. 8:...
