PRO IIVIA GE PARTNERS Putting Your Image First 47 NW 2nd St,, Suite #3 Ortonville, MN 56278 Phone: 320-839-2542 Fax: 320-839-2543 Ponder T/iese T00iinps in yaur 00[eart 00Tenntx Juatixon Since the beginning, believers and non-believers alike have wondered why bad things happen. We are especially grieved when tragedy strikes people we know, people we know who are good. "What's going on God? Hello, are you there?" The earthquake that hit San Francisco in 1989 was the same size as the one that occurred recently in Haiti. Sixty people died in the Bay area compared to almost a quarter of a million in Haiti. Does this mean the people living in San Fransisco are more holy than those living Port au Prince? The age old question is, "Why do bad things happen?" Is there some- thing that might help us understand when our loved ones die or when we get sick? What is God's justice? What is God's will? Why does God allow the things He does? Before I answer that, I am reminded of something that a favorite teacher of mine, Fr. Benedict Groeschel, said, "Where two or three are gathered, there will be a squabble." I hope my answers will give encouragement and hope. It isn't an easy topic. There isn't an easy answer. The best we can do is to see dimly, as if in a mirror. For my answers, I will rely mostly upon the teachings of the early Christians. I hope they will touch your heart, although certainly, each one of you will find a mix of things to embrace and other things you might not agree with. Just as Jacob, we all wrestle with God. As Thomas Merton says, "Faith is a principle of questioning and struggle before it becomes a principle of certitude and peace." It seems that faith always has an element of doubt. To prepare yourselves for these mysteries of God, ponder these quotes, some of them are from the early Church. See where they take you. "God cannot be grasped by the mind. If He could be grasped, He would not be God," Evagrius of Pontus. George Tyrrel said, "Surely, the babe just born knows as much of the world and its ways as the wisest of us can know the ways of God." To ponder the wisdom of God, we must "unlearn," we must search with new eyes, and we must check our pride at the door. St. Dionysius the Areopagite says: "Emptied of knowledge, man is joined in the high- est part of himself, not with any created thing, nor with himself, nor with another, but with the One who is altogether unknowable; and, in know- ing nothing, he knows in a manner that surpasses understanding." From the Sayings of the Desert Fathers, it is written that "One day some of the brethren came to see Abba Anthony, and among them was Abba Joseph. Wishing to test them, the old man mentioned a text from Scripture, and starting with the youngest he asked them what it meant. Each explained it as best he could. But to each one the old man said, "You have not yet found the answer." Last of all he said to Abba Joseph, "And what do you think the text means?" He replied, "I do not know." Then Abba Anthony said, "truly, Abba Joseph has found the way, for he said: I do not know." Take everything you read in this column with a grain of salt and pon- them deeply in your heart. is risen. He truly is risen. Peace be with you.
