REALIZING THE EXCHANGE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

REALIZING THE EXCHANGE Presence demands an actualization of the exchange. Presence that is not experienced as mutual self-gifting or never renewed in self-giving will become an absence. There is always a need for communion or sharing oneness in spirit. Presence increases as you empty all, the good and even the weaknesses, in trusting self-revelation at the most intimate, deepest levels of sharing.

GOD’S PRESENCE TO US [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

GOD’S PRESENCE TO US We have been discussing in various ways that God is love by his nature and that, therefore, he is also self-giving "presence" by his very nature. But in what way can you and I experience God's presence to us? How can you live to make God happy? How can God who is so completely perfect and immutable receive anything from you that would add anything to his personhood? Does God really wish to share his being with you to the degree of "communion" where you truly can become one with him? God’s Word became flesh and dwelt among us in the person of Jesus Christ in order to invite us to receive the gift of God’s very being in the most intimate friendship. God establishes in Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection the New Covenant whereby God pledges himself not only to share with you his gifts for your happiness, but to commit himself in the gift of himself to you for your total happiness: "...but he (God) does it all for your own good, so that you may share his...

A MUTUAL SHARING [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

A MUTUAL SHARING You too can share yourself with God when at every moment you seek with Jesus to do God's holy will. This was Jesus' mutual self-gift back to the Father. You too can enter into a mutual sharing with God. God lives within you and raises you up by his free gift of himself in his uncreated energies of love (grace), divinizing you into participators in his very own nature (2 Pt. 1:4). By God's gratuitous self-gift you are made worthy to receive his fullness of loving presence, his availability toward you for your complete happiness: "....because my aim is to do not my own will, but the will of him who sent me" (Jn. 5:30). Desire to share yourself with God who shares himself, Father, Son and, Holy Spirit, so perfectly and completely with you. He prompts you to seek at all times to live in greater awareness of your communication with God as he gives you his Word. How you ought to bum with desire never to lose this consciousness of being one with God, Trinity, communing at ...

LIVE AS YOU PRAY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

LIVE AS YOU PRAY There is a basic law of growth in prayer that applies also to your level of growth in development as a mature human person. Look at a small child praying and you will know where that child is in the long journey toward full personhood. The child is present to God only when it feels a need. God is fashioned out of basic needs on the part of the child. God is the great Santa Claus. God is infinitely present in self-giving to the child, but is perceived in the child's prayer only as Giver. As you personally develop through adolescence into early adulthood and experience yourself more and more in availability, mutuality, and in the actualization of your self-giving to others in relationships, so you can open up to God and be present to him in greater availability, mutuality, and true exchange of yourself with his being. Thus you see, as you live, so you pray. And as you pray, so you live. Can we not say: as you are present to loved ones in an intimate presence of an I-T...

LIVING IN LOVE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

LIVING IN LOVE The presence of God within you becomes a swelling ocean wave that seeks to burst through the space of your heart to flow out and inundate the entire world before you with God's love. You whisper the name and presence of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit over your world. What was hidden now becomes revealed; what was absent now through your cooperation becomes present. The presence of God experienced as intimate love within you becomes a presence of God as transforming love around you. You are called to intimacy by living in the indwelling presence of God. But such intimacy finds its fullness in the birthing of God's loving presence in others whom you are sent to serve with love. Intimate love begets other intimate loves. A loving community gives birth to new loving communities. And you find your happiness and fulfillment, as God does, in becoming progressively more open and available to beget others into their unique happiness as they discover their I-ness in the Thou of y...

RELEASING GOD'S PRESENCE IN THE WORLD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

RELEASING GOD'S PRESENCE IN THE WORLD You have moved from being closed to being open to God, and you become intensely aware of God communing with you at all times through his infinite love within you. You wish at all times to pray as you seek in all things to love with your whole heart and with all your strength your triune God (Dt. 6:6). You are also driven outward toward the world in which you live. You wish to share your new-found being, discovered in God's great love for you. It is always a movement, therefore, outward toward those human beings around you. You go to become God's presence of love toward all whom you are privileged to meet, and you become available to them to call them into their being through the mystery of your unique presence. God's presence is infinite; his love is total and complete. Yet the experience of God's presence is quite dependent on you and me to release his love in the context of our human situation. God calls others into being by his love in us, sh...

TENSIONED LIVING [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

TENSIONED LIVING Why are you and I not capable of being God's presence to others at all times? Why are we not more present to God throughout the day? One difficulty lies in the tension between the inner, living experience of the indwelling Trinity and the outward giving of that love and new life to others. It is a tension between the eternal now experienced in those moments of aloneness with the Alone and this present temporal now that is so full of the absence of love and openness in self-giving to others. There is tension and brokenness that more easily separates contemplation from daily living than unites them into the same presence of love for God and neighbor. Another reason is that we Western Christians tend to separate spirit and matter, God and his material creation. Distinction should not be the same as separation. For those who have the eyes to see, God is everywhere present, inserted into his material creation and working to bring it into its fulfillment unto his glory an...

VIRGIN AND MOTHER OF GOD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

VIRGIN AND MOTHER OF GOD This is why the archetype of the Church and of us Christians from the earliest centuries has always been Mary, virgin and mother of God. It is not enough to realize in prayer throughout the day and night that you have been chosen by God's predilection to be his spouse, a pure and empty virgin with no power but that of awe-ful expectancy to receive the triune God's gift of indwelling, intimate love. You are called to be mother to the life and presence of God in the world around you. Mary the contemplative becomes the loving servant of the Lord. Love received makes it possible for her to give of that love. Contemplata aliis tradere— to share with others the riches contemplated. From feminine to masculine, a womb that receives rich life opens to release that life, Mary becomes for us the completely realized, integrated human being. The contemplative in action is the virgin-mother of the Word of God, receiving and sharing that Divine Life with the whole world.

HOLY MARY, MOTHER OF GOD, PRAY FOR US NOW.... [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 December 1992

HOLY MARY, MOTHER OF GOD, PRAY FOR US NOW.... As we pray, "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us n0w...," we will experience her loving, motherly presence. She will become the channel of grace that will make us true members of the Church, of Christ's Body. We will live constantly in her holy presence, trusting that she who is all powerful before her Son will intercede for us, not to obtain so much this or that favor, but more importantly that we may become like her, a living oneness with Jesus Christ. We pray and live the prayer of St. Paul that Mary our Mother is always offering to her Son through his Holy Spirit: All I want is to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and to share his sufferings by reproducing the patterns of his death. (Ph. 3:10)

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

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 during this new year of 1993! Every January presents us with anew beginning, the top of anew year with its twelve months and fifty-two weeks and its 365 days—many tickings of minutes and seconds that are all calls to greater growth in God's life and in sharing his happiness and beauty with each other. The end of the old year may fill us with remorse and regret that we have not utilized the gifts of God as we would have wished, like dry bones so parched and seemingly devoid of God's inspirating Holy Spirit. Yet January fills us with great hope. Life is a journey and we are on the road again! A tune comes to our lips. There is a spring to our walk as we set our eyes on the goal again. Oh, how great it is to be alive! Part of that joie de vivre is to stretch out with open arms and embrace the abundance of this new life. That is why Jesus came among us and why he p...

DEEPER PRAYER DEMANDS CONSTANT DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

DEEPER PRAYER DEMANDS CONSTANT DISCIPLINE There is a fundamental law in nature that could be formulated in these words: "There is nothing that lives, but that something must die. There is nothing that dies, but that something else will live." Jesus Christ taught this law many times in very straightforward language. In his growing years in Nazareth he had seen firsthand the sower that sowed seed in spring. So he taught: "Unless a wheat grain falls on the ground and dies, it remains only a single grain; but if it dies, it yields a rich harvest. Anyone who loves his life loses it; anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life" (Jn. 12:24-25). In paradoxical language Jesus insisted that if anyone wanted to be his disciple and obtain eternal life (i. e., to live the indwelling, trinitarian life), that person had to begin by a "dying" process; to enter into a suffering that delivers unto new life. We must risk surrendering to him by giving up our lower level of exi...

PRAYER DEMANDS DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

PRAYER DEMANDS DISCIPLINE I have often said that the two words most misunderstood by many Christians are mysticism and asceticism. You are beginning to understand contemplative life no longer as a rare state for special individuals, but as the calling God gives all his children to live ever more consciously in his love and to return that experienced love to other human beings. It is imperative that you understand the necessity of discipline if you are to attain any degree of intimate union in prayer with God and neighbor. No doubt you see in the young generations the inroads that materialism and affluence have made, rendering them very self-centered individuals with very little commitment to God or neighbor. Without discipline, no student can ever master any subject requiring concentration and intense mental application. A concert violinist must give up many other pursuits in order to practice the long hours required for achieving his skills. He must even give up some legitimate spo...

TRUE LIBERATION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

TRUE LIBERATION For too long (and this might explain in your own case why discipline in your spiritual life may have waned) we have heard distorted teachings on asceticism. And we were right in rejecting a faulty view of Christianity and human nature. Asceticism for many Christians has become an unhealthy withdrawal from this material world as though God's material creation was evil. The early monastic Church, influenced by pagan philosophies such as Platonism, Manicheanism, and Stoicism, presented die human body as the source of all evil; therefore it was to be beaten into submission to the spirit. Appetites that were basically good as God had created them were held in check by certain practices such as fasting, abstinence, and sexual continence. The more you "tortured" the body and writhed in pain, the more pleasing you were supposed to be in God’s eyes. You were to accept humiliations and always consider yourself the least of all human beings. Is it any wonder that with a more ho...

NEED FOR DISCIPLINE [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

NEED FOR DISCIPLINE Today, in our modem pleasure-oriented culture, our bodily appetites are more in need of discipline than ever. But just what forms are to be used will be determined by the goal intended, namely, to love God and neighbor as perfectly as possible. The life of Jesus shows that he had to "go against" his own desires in order to attain his life's goal of doing at all times whatever most pleased his heavenly Father. The asceticism of Jesus was not separated from his mystical union with the Father. His ascetical practices of going against his own will (Lk. 22:43) in order to please the Father were always subordinated to the Father as means and had full meaning insofar as they brought him into a greater intimate union with his Father. St. Paul expresses such discipline thus: Your mind must be renewed by a spiritual revolution so that you can put on the new self that has been created in God's way, in the goodness and holiness of the truth. (Eph. 4:2324) In such inner disci...

SELF-DENIAL [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

SELF-DENIAL Jesus insisted upon the cross of self-denial in order that you might have a part with him (Mt. 10:38, 16:24; Mk. 8:34; Lk. 9:23, 14:27). All too often you might think that you would like to follow Jesus but, like the rich young man in Mark's Gospel, you have too many "possessions" (Mk. 10:17-27). There are "enemies," forces both within you and outside of you, attacking you and setting up obstacles against your true self, that loving child of God in Christ Jesus. St. Peter comes on quite strongly in stressing the need for discipline in the sense of vigilance against the attacks of an enemy: Be sober and watch well. The devil, who is your enemy, goes about roaring like a lion, to find his prey; but you, grounded in the faith, must face him boldly. (1 Pt. 5:8) St. Paul describes the spiritual life in terms of a struggle, a battle, a warfare engaged against spiritual forces that seek his destruction as well as ours. The aim is to seek always the will of God out of loving sub...

PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1993

PUTTING ON THE MIND OF CHRIST Inner discipline in the spiritual life is a challenge to embrace full health, the full realization of our spiritual potential, and to accept the life that Jesus has come to bring us that we might have it more abundantly (Jn. 10-10). Self-denial, needed to become what you should be in God's eyes, is the therapy that excises your "false ego" which holds back your true growth. As therapy can be a positive means to health, in asceticism there is a more positive aspect: that of putting on the mind of Christ, of imitating him and living by the values that guided his life as found in the Gospels. Putting on his virtues is, therefore, a necessary part of spiritual discipline that frees you from your sinful self. Imitating him becomes your most powerful motive for living as a free child of God. Jesus himself exhorted his followers: "Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls” (Mt. 11:29-30). His ...
