It wasn't much later that I heard more sirens. "It must be a big fire," I reasoned. It certainly was. What a blow to the community, to many families, and individuals. About 100 jobs are gone. That will affect all of us. My heart and prayers go out to everyone whose lives changed so abruptly. We wonder where God is when things like this happen. I am re- minded of a story about a single mom who lost her job. She went home and baked a cake and celebrated with her children. They were confused. "We're celebrating because God is preparing something better for us." Of course, we must be careful with statements like this because God doesn't cause buildings to bum or other bad things. God will not do evil that good will come of it. But he will stand with us and support us in the midst of a tragedy and lead us to something good or better. Getting there however, we can feel empty and lost. In the book "Taking Flight," Fr. Anthony de Mello tells a story about Buddha's disciple Subhuti. He discovered the richness of emptiness-the realization that nothing is permanent, nothing is satisfactory, that all things are passing away, including the self. In his awareness of the di- vine, Subhuti sat beneath a tree totally unaware of himself. He was fo- '~ cused on the beauty before him. Suddenly, flower blossoms began to fall like rain. ~, The Lord said, "You have discovered the secret of emptiness." "No, I was just sitting here so taken up by the moment that I forgot myself." "True. You have not spoken of emptiness or thought about it. This is ~:: true emptiness." And the blossoms continued to fall. As music needs the hollowness of a flute; letters, the blankness of a page; light, the void of a window; so holiness needs the absence of the self. And what does holiness give us? Sight. We are given the grace to see that each of our lives is a journey of faith, an Exodus Journey, just like Israel when they left Egypt. We journey in stages from this world of sin and sorrow into the Kingdom of Heaven, which is always present, but hidden. St. Teresa of Avila put it this way, "All the way to Heaven is Heaven. All the way to Hell is Hell." It has nothing to do with circum- stances or events. It is a matter of seeing, of perspective, and of empty- ing the self. As the Israelites approached the Promised Land, Moses sent out scouts to survey the territory (Numbers 13-14). Ten of the couts were afraid of what they saw and convinced all of Israel to turn back. The whole people saw obstacles instead of opportunity. Two scouts, Caleb and Joshua, had faith beyond the "seeing is believing" kind of faith. Caleb's name means "bold or confident." Joshua's name is Hebrew for Jesus, which means "savior." Their faith was bold and saving. They saw him who is invisible. In our journey through the wilderness of life, the deserts of tragedy, the emptiness that life can often be, we are offered this bold and saving faith. When Peter looked to Jesus, he boldly walked on the water. When he noticed the wind and the waves, he started to sink. We're like Peter aren't we? That's ok, just continues in his likeness when he noticed he was sink- ing: cry out. "Lord, save me!" (Matthew 14:30) And when we do, perhaps we can be like St. Francis who said. "Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." I think we will find out that with God all really are possible. Peace be with YU" rett.
