I I Deadline for churches is Friday at 12 noon 00anaCer 00Kese T00in#s ................. tn .Vour 00leart I Dennts fustison. I met a man during a retreat in prison some years ago. He told me his story and what happened to him when he was 12-years-old. "It was a drug deal gone bad. I walked into the room to see a man raise a gun to my mom's head. He pulled the trigger. ,My mom fell down. He laughed. I ran to my mom and held her. I couldn t stop crying. After a while I noticed the blood all over my hands and my clothes. She was dead. They took me to my dad's house. But he didn't want me. He kicked me out onto the streets. I had nowhere to go. I ended up in a gang. I killed a man just after I turned 13. I've been in jail ever since." Them was a woman who had an accident. She was paralyzed from the neck down. She told a priest who visited her' some time later, 'q am the luckiest person in the world. I can do all the loveliest things in the world." Two tragic stories. The woman was able to come to a point of inner healing. Her pain was transformed and she was healed. Oh, she didn't walk, but she became a dynamic, alive person. The young man transnlit- ted his pain. He killed another person. He was dead inside. When I sin, it is often because I have some kind of pain. It might be physical, but more likely it is inner pain I haven't dealt with. If I don't heal the pain, it comes out sideways and hurts other people. The ancient Church, saw herself as a hospital for people to come for healing. There are so many who suffer. Many people need healing. They need to know they are loved and must be given an opportunity to love others too. It is the healthy church that leads the disciple on a radical inner jour- ney of discovering who he or she is and who God is. Then, like the cater- pillar that changes into the butterfly, by the grace of God, the person becomes someone who is capable of loving unconditionally. Too often, someone joins a church and they are "indoctrinated." They are given the set of rules and beliefs which typically affect the outside of the person. On one hand this is good. We need rules for good order and boundaries to know who we are as a community. But does this heal? Healthy religion and spirituality, the Church as a hospital, also gives us tools and guidance that help us to change ourselves on the inside. These tools include things like prayer, fasting, almsgiving, accept- ance, dealing with life's trials and temptations, the reading of Scripture and the lives of holy people. Spiritual tools help us to see God in our- selves, in others, and in creation. God is everywhere and if we don't see { Him everywhere, we finally come to see Him nowhere. Pain lead to sire and sin leads to spiritual blindness. { We all suffer. The difference is our reaction to it, whether we heal or not. St. Catherine of Sienna said, "All the way to Heaven is Heaven. All ': the way to Hell is Hell." In other words, we not only choose our destiny, we choose our present moment too. Each of us has the power to choose what we make of our situation today. As we try tO understand things like God's justice, God's will, and why bad things happen, we must keep in mind our constant need for healing. While you're pondering, check out my blog, ponderinthe-, for more about the idea of church as a hospital. Per- . ps this may help you with some healing that you need in your life.,.v... : '-Peace be with you ........ , ' Librarian's Corner I By Vicki Grimli The Ortonville Public Library is open Monday-Thursday 12-8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10-3 p.m. Remember to come to the library at 4 p.m. on Thursday to see Douglas Wood.
