They break us out of "black and white" thinking. They change us from fear based to love based people. Great loves last. We allow them to prune our rough, selfish edges. Great sufferings are sudden. They wrench control out of our hands and against our will. In either case. our wills must bend away from self and towards another, and THE Other. If we don't, we will walk away from our love. If we don't, the suffering we encounter will leave us bitter and angry. We don't find God in bitterness or anger. God is in surrender. Le- galistic religion doesn't know how to handle great suffering or great love. It is too busy pointing out flaws in others to bother with what is going on + inside the soul. God passes unnoticed. Is there a way we can soften our hearts? Is there something we can do to help us love and suffer in a way that we remain open to God? Yes. The process is called ascesis. The word comes from Greek word that means "to train." St. Paul uses it in his letters to describe the Chris- tian life. Life is a form of ascesis, a training of ourselves so that we can see God in all of life. The early Christians prayed, fasted, gave alms and did other as spiritual exercises. One desert father gave this advice to beginners:."To begin a spiritual pilgrimage, start by closing your mouth." Being silent is a form of asce- sis! In the West. we have largely become unfamiliar with these prac- tices.We don't fast. We don't take almsgiwng seriously. We limit prayer to saying a few nice things to God and asking for a few nice things in re- turn. For many, God has become a mental soul saving technique. Asce- sis reminds us that God is to be experienced here and now. in our bodies. in other people, in creation, and in life. We workout so we are in shape to "run the race," as St. Paul says. We train ourselves with spiritual prac- tices much like an athlete prepares for a big game. Ascesis is always inferior to the great loves and suffering that we en- counter in life. but they do have a way of preparing us for them and help- i ing us through them because they establish a kind of pathway and I connecnon to God. ] What connects ascesis to experiencing God is the Transfiguration, Matthew 17:1-13. We are shown that Jesus is always God. the fullness of the Father's glory. He is the Christ! But we have to be prepared. We have to learn how to see. Until we know how to see. we will see Jesus. but not the Christ. In all three gospel accounts, the story of the Transfiguration comes after Jesus tells about His coming passion and suffering on the Cross. He tells the disciples that they too must deny themselves and embrace the cross. He is telling them that great love and great suffering teach us to see. i When Jesus is transfigured, the disciples still recognize Him as the man they have known, but the difference is that they also see Him as the ~ + Christ. When we can see Christ. we too are transformed. It doesn't oblit- erate who we are, it won't change what happened to us, but it changes 1 + how we see, how we act and react. I The Russian, Iulia de Beausobre, offers this interesting quote, "Evil 1 must not be shunned, but first participated in and understood through 1 participation, and then through understandirig !,ransfigured." i+ She isn't saying, "Go out and commit evil. Rather, when evil hap- + pens to us, we suffer, but don't run. Embrace it. Be as Jesus on the Cross. 1 Evil itself nailed Him to it. He suffered, yet even from this dark place, chose to love. He transformed evil into love. United with Christ, nsformed in Christ, we can do this too. ~ ~::~ Peace be with you. if:: ~ I :r By Vicki Grimli New in First Fiction is Deborah Ro- The Ortonville Public Library is driguez' "A Cup of Friendship".
