THE ANAWIM IN THE OLD TESTAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

THE ANAWIM IN THE OLD TESTAMENT "For Yahweh loves his people and he adorns the lowly (the Anawim) with victory" (Ps. 149:4). Throughout the Old Testament we find that God's people, the ones he has prepared for himself (Is. 60:21; 62:12; 63:8), the people who are faithful to God's eternal covenant with them (Is. 61:8); the real Israel, a blessed race (Is. 65:9, 23); a holy people (Is. 62:12), the authentic "Elect" of God (Is. 65:9, 15, 22), the Redeemed (Is. 62:12), are the Anawim. They are God’s servants and handmaids (Is. 44:1; 54:17); his disciples (Is. 5413), who keep the Law imprinted upon their hearts (Is. 51:7). The Anawim place all their hope in the Lord (Ps. 50:9). They find their refuge in him (Ps. 33:9). They are the little ones, the poor and humble of heart. "May the humble not retire in confusion, may the poor and the afflicted (the Anawim) praise your Name, O Lord” (Ps. 73:21). "Yahweh hears the poor (the Anawim) and his own who are in bonds he spurns not" (Ps. 68:34).<...

THE ANAWIM IN THE TEACHINGS OF THE PROPHETS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

THE ANAWIM IN THE TEACHINGS OF THE PROPHETS "Give praise, O you heavens and rejoice, O earth; you mountains, give praise with jubilation; because Yahweh has comforted his people and has shown mercy to his poor ones" (Is. 49:13). It is mainly the great prophet Isaiah who expounds the doctrine about the Anawim as God's favorite children. Over and over he writes that the poor, the little ones, the meek and humble of heart receive God’s constant help and protection. He has sent me to preach to the meek (anawim), to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives and deliverance to them that are shut up, to proclaim the acceptable year of Yahweh, and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all that mourn. (Is. 61:1-2) For thus says the High and Eminent that inhabits Eternity: 'I live in that high and holy place where those with a contrite and humble spirit live.'" (Is. 57:17) [For] whom shall I have respect but him that is poor and little and of a contrite heart, ...

THE ANAWIM IN THE PSALMS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

THE ANAWIM IN THE PSALMS As we know, Jesus himself and his followers made the psalter their own most fmitful prayer to the Father as a summary of Anawim spirituality. As we pray the Psalms, in and with Jesus and through his Spirit, the author of the Psalms, we cannot help but grow in the spirituality they express and beget in our hearts, that of the little ones who place all their tmst in God. There is no characteristic of this spirituality of the poor in spirit that is not, in some divinely efficacious way, expressed for us in the Psalms. In Psalm 34 we experience how the poor cry out to Yahweh: "A cry goes up from the poor man, and Yahweh hears and helps him in all his troubles (v. 6). ’’Those who fear the Lord want for nothing" (v. 9). "The eyes of the Lord are turned towards the virtuous, his ears to their cry" (v. 15). In Psalm 51 the Anawim weep for their sins and cry out unceasingly with the repentant David for mercy (v. 1 passim). "God, create a clean heart in me, put into m...

THE ANAWIM OF GOD IN THE NEW TESTAMENT [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

THE ANAWIM OF GOD IN THE NEW TESTAMENT How dramatically the New Testament portrays the Anawim: "God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to confound the strong. God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God" (1 Cos. 1:27-29). As we have already stated, Mary is the tme link connecting the Old and the New Covenant of God with us human beings. It was in Nazareth that the announcement of the Messiah’s coming was made to Mary, the New Eve. Her life reflected that of the desert Anawim, the faithful ones who lived in inner desert silence, in total surrender in their emptiness to God's allness. Mary is the first of the New Testament Anawim to be part of the Remnant of God. ’’Behold, I am the handmaid, the servant, of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word” (Lk. 1:38). She was totally at the disposition...

JESUS: SUMMIT OF ANAWIM SPIRITUALITY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

JESUS: SUMMIT OF ANAWIM SPIRITUALITY On every page of the Gospels we contemplate the great depths of Jesus' poverty of spirit, his total humility and limitless trust in his heavenly Father. We see him fulfilling the mission his Father gave him to bring about our redemption and divinization as sharers with him of divine life in the Kingdom of God. In human form, especially as the poorest of the poor on the cross, he manifests the Anawim community of the Trinity as persons who empty themselves in gift of self-sacrificing love to each other and thus discover that emptiness is a filling up, death is resurrection, to lose one's life in love for another is to really gain it. For this reason Jesus calls us: "Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls; for my yoke is easy and my burden light" (Mt. 11:29). Our Lord does not merely say that he h...

OUR ONENESS WITH THE RISEN LORD [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 January 1994

OUR ONENESS WITH THE RISEN LORD Because Jesus emptied himself totally for love of us, the Father raised him up in glory and as we share even now through his Spirit in that glory, we are also able to identify with his radical poverty. As we put on the mind of Christ and by his Spirit live in love, we hunger also to be more emptied, made "nada, nada, nada," as John of the Cross puts it so lyrically. We desire deep prayerful union with Jesus, poor yet perfect image of the kenotic, emptying love of the Father and the Holy Spirit. Negatively, poverty of spirit is total self-emptying of all that impedes the fullness of divine life, the fusion of our spirit with God's Spirit. Positively, it is the life of our spirit, knowing, loving, possessing, and delighting in God, our neighbor, and all creation in the same Divine Light. In a word, for one who loves, he knows nothing but love. To be truly empty and poor of spirit is to receive riches from the only triune community of perfect love.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ: This entire month of March finds us deeply into the sacred liturgical season of Lent. We are being driven into the desert of our hearts by the same Holy Spirit who drove Jesus and so many other great athletes into the physical desert (Mk. 1:12; Mt. 4:1; Lk. 4:1). The Church now calls us to enter more deeply into our “hearts,” the scriptural term for our deepest levels of consciousness which are permeated by the workings of the Holy Spirit. This has been for Christians throughout all ages the model for returning “to one’s true self,” for entering into the heart and there doing the battle against the crippling, demonic forces that inhabit our interior psyche as well as the world around us. Christians, forever eager for the paschal victory, know that true freedom comes only through a prayerful attentiveness to the “heart.” This has been interpreted always in the image of a desert or wilderness where the Spirit of Jesus drives us Christians ever deep...

THE OASIS OF TEARS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

THE OASIS OF TEARS Christian prayer is adoration and worship of God as our Supreme Being, the Center of our lives. He alone is the Lord and is deserving of all our love. One aspect of authentic Christian prayer, however, which is often most overlooked, at least in our modem world, is that of confessing our brokenness and sinfulness before the Lord in humility by his power. This confession of brokenness impels us to leave the world of illusory, self-created desires and move into God’s real world of love, peace, and joy in harmony with God and his entire created world. We must realize there is a powerful, negative force within us that influences our inner and outer behavior. We tend to deny this since we know God as only positive and life-giving. In order to be healed, we must acknowledge this negative force, admitting that we are really sick and not what we should be. We must receive God’s grace which summons us to awaken from our sleep, from a life spent in darkness. To receive such...

WEEP; THERE IS NO OTHER WAY [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

WEEP; THERE IS NO OTHER WAY One of the great graces I know I have received through my study of early Eastern Christian mystics is a deep conviction of the utter necessity of recognizing our sinful condition. In a state of continual conversion we must cry out constantly for his healing. We must beg him to transform our brokenness to new life as we turn ourselves totally to him, the source of all strength. This is summarized succinctly Abbot Pimen of the 4th century Egyptian desert: “Weep; there is no other way [to perfection].” In the Christian West we all too readily think of sorrow and contrition for sins as an attitude that we must put on in preparing for the rite of reconciliation or during a retreat. Paul Tillich captures something of keen Eastern Christian insight in regard to mourning over our human, inner brokenness in his essay, “The Eternal Now.” He writes, “It is the act of the whole discarding them [sins] into the past as something that no longer has any power over the pr...

SIN IN OUR MEMBERS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

SIN IN OUR MEMBERS When we begin to live more consciously and more interiorly, we make contact with what St. Paul describes as “sin which lives inside my body” (Rm. 7:23). Sin becomes something more than our deliberate acts of transgression against a divine law. We can learn much from the early Christian saints of the desert who had passed beyond the extrinsic aspects of the law. They had entered into a deep self-knowledge of the inner movements of the “heart” as well as a deep consciousness of God’s very immediate and tender love for them. In a word, sin for them was anything that was an obstacle to joyfully living the good news of the Paschal Mystery.

CLAIMING OUR OWN BROKENNESS [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

CLAIMING OUR OWN BROKENNESS True Christian prayer possesses four main characteristics: adoration or worship of God; petition; thanksgiving; sorrow unto forgiveness. Let us explore together our own unworthiness before the awesome transcendent God which the prophet Isaiah experienced: “What a wretched state I am in! I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips....and my eyes have looked at the King, Yahweh Sabaoth” (Is. 6:5). For one who Eves superficially, such a confession of unworthiness before God has little meaning. But for those who with Paul enter deeply into their consciousness and even unconsciousness, a whole inner world of fragmentation and darkness opens up. Perhaps in prayer you have experienced such an inner duality as Paul: ...I am unspiritual; I have been sold as a slave to sin. I cannot understand my own behavior. I fail to carry out the things I want to do, and I find myself doing the very things I hate...and so the thing behaving in that way is not my self, but sin liv...

A SELF-CREATED PRISON [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

A SELF-CREATED PRISON When we do take time to move into deeper prayer, we wiE discover within ourselves two centers that vie with each other to control our value systems. There is, on one side, the false ego or “Kingdom of Mammon” which is characterized as fearful of and hostEe to the outside world, proud, greedy, deceitful, guEt-laden, inferiority mixed with an aggressively attacking pride. The other center is the true self that has been made by God according to his image and likeness. This true self is noble, self-sacrificing, loving toward God and neighbor and radiates humility, peace, and joy in all its loving relationships with God's real world. The false ego is illusory and has been created through our guilt and the fear of not being loved by God and others. We create such an inner prison every time we move away from true love and enter into a state of self-centeredness. We build the prison and we are the prisoner but we are also the jailer who holds the key to open the prison...

AUTHENTIC CONVERSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

AUTHENTIC CONVERSION In such inner quiet we gently yield to the operations of the Holy Spirit, who shows us what needs continual healing from deep within us. We see our fragmentation and we sorrow at seeing what could have been. We experience how great and tender and lasting has been God’s love for us and we see also our ingratitude. We feel caught in a prison of darkness and yet we can see a delicate ray of light leading us through the bars toward a metanoia conversion to the Lord Jesus. The words of the prophet Joel take on a sense of urgency as we begin to experience our own inadequacies and a strong desire set ourselves free from all falsity within us by our own power: ...come back to me with all your heart, fasting, weeping, mourning. Let your hearts be broken, not your garments tom, turn to Yahweh your God again, for he is all tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in graciousness, and ready to relent...(Jl. 2:12-13) As we sit within our interior desert, that is so muc...

SECOND MOVEMENT IN A TRUE CONVERSION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

SECOND MOVEMENT IN A TRUE CONVERSION The second aspect of humility in any true Christian conversion is the positive enlightenment that results when we yield to God's grace in our brokenness and begin to live anew life in Christ. Initially, we stretch out to possess the new life promised us by Christ (Jn. 10:10). The darkness within our hearts becomes light as we make contact with our Lord and Savior. He promised us that he and the Father would come and abide within us (Jn. 14:23). At the center of our being we can still fall down and confess our belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Cry out to him that you are broken in body, soul, and spirit and desperately need his healing love. He releases his Holy Spirit who reveals that Jesus Christ, the image of the Father, loves you unto the madness of the cross. The statement, “For me he dies!” (Ga. 2:20), becomes for you an experience that leads you into the awesome presence of the heavenly Father as perfect holiness, beauty, and love...

PRACTICING COMPUNCTION [Newspaper Article] — Inscape — 1 March 1994

PRACTICING COMPUNCTION How can we put into practice those essential elements that will lead us out of our brokenness and false reality? We have already seen the twofold movement in a conversion. One is dread and disgust with the darkness in which we have been living by which we recognize our ingratitude toward God who has loved us with such perfect and humble love. The other is an entering into the light of God’s new life. We accept this new life to the degree that we sincerely resolve to leave behind the darkness and surrender completely to live in God’s will, which is to live in love toward God and neighbor. Each day will reveal from the depths of our being certain areas of darkness. The ugly hydra heads of these dark areas continue to rise up out of the past, from our repressed anger, hurts, and fears. We need no longer be slaves of the past, of our sins and failures, of festering inner wounds and seething rage because of what others have done to us. There is only this present mo...
