One day advance meal registra- aonarer TKese TKings in ]/our [eart gennis Justison i How do you love someone who has hurt you? I found this teaching from the Elder Porphyrios on the blog, "The Orthodox Way of. Life," that I think, will help us. Lets suppose someone is all alone in the desert. Suddenly he hears a voice crying out in distress in the distance. He follows the sound and is confronted by a horrendous sight: a tiger has grabbed hold of a man and is savaging him with his claws. The man is desperately shouting for help. In a few minutes he will be torn to pieces. What can the person do to help? Can he run to his side? How? It is impossible. Can he shout for help? Who will hear him? There is no one within earshot. Should he per- ht~ps pick up a stone and throw it at the man to finish him off?. Certainly not, we would say. But that is exactly what can happen if we don t real- ize that the other person who is acting badly towards us has been taken hold of by a tiger, the devil. We fail to realize that when we react to such a person Without love it is as if we are throwing stones at his wounds and accordingly we are doing him great harm and the 'tiger' leaps onto us and we to the same as him and worse. What kind of love do we have then for our neighbor and even more importantly, for God? We should regard our brethren with sympathy and behave with courtesy towards them, re- i peating in our hearts with simplicity the prayer, Lord Jesus Christ," so that the grace of God may strengthen our Soul and so that we don't pass judgment on anyone. (The prayer Porphyrios refers to is the Jesus Prayer, which is central to Orthodox spirituality, but more on that in another article.) The Elder is telling us that we cannot love without Jesus in our hearts. When we allow Jesus and His love to work through us, we will love everyone and not judge a single person. The problem is we do not un- derstand the depth of divine love. Most of us don t like what Jesus teaches about love, especially loving the enemy. Here is a quote from another Orthodox man~ a Russian at that! (Weren t they our enemies?) Fyodor Dostoyevsky, a great writer and brilliant theolog!an, writes this in the "The Brothers Karamazovi" Father L,ossima says, Love in practice is a harsh and dreadful thing compared to love in dreams. It may very well kill you," Life is a journey to the Father. We are born in slavery in Egypt, so to speak. We must cross the desert like Moses and the Hebrews. Being a Christian is more than believing a set of ideas. It is living more and more the life of Christ in our own person and in our lives. Lov- i ing those who hurt us is a carrying of the cross, a cmcifuxion of sorts. The temptation is to return to the Egypt of selfishness., Our experience of the cross, the desert, or our religion sometimes doesn t feel holy at all. ' It feels like hell. It feels like death. We d rather have fun and entertain notions of love that we hear of in songs and see in movies. This is what the desert is for and the first step in loving those who hurt us: it teaches us who we are. Once we can see ourselves clearly, we will see that what we hate and condemn in our neighbor really resides in [ our own heart and soul. Then, and only then, we are set free to love. We I are free to love even those who hurt us. Once we see the tiger, we be- come healers and lovers instead of people who condemn and judge. It takes courage to 10ok at our souls, our lives, and who we really are. It takes many of us a lifetime. But remember, this is what God loves. In His great humility and love, He says, "This is what I work with." This is the mustard seed of faith that God can do great things with. we don't learn this ovemight. It is a journey. In the end, all the "good and the bad" are invited to the great wedding feast of Matthew 22:1-14. Here we will join our neighbors, themselves a mixture of good and bad. Together we will dine with our Lord, our .L_~acher and Source of love. ~_peace be with you.
