Ponder TKese TKings in J/our Heart $y Dennis Justison The period of time and the phenomena of the Desert Fathers and Moth- ers belong to all of us. The Orthodox revere them and often refer to them and their body of wisdom. The time of the Fathers and Mothers were the days when the Church was united, so we Catholics consider the desert pe- riod as ours too. Since Protestantism has a common history with Catholi- cism, I think here too, there can be an appreciation for what these men and women attempted to do: to live in a very real way the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We all have much to learn. A good place to start is a short little book entitled, "The Life of An- thony of Egypt," written by St. Athanasius of Alexandria. You can find it on the Internet. Anthony (251-356) is known as the "Father of Christian monasticism." Showing up late for church one day, he entered as the Gospel was being proclaimed: "Go sell all that you have and come, follow Me." An- thony knew these words were for him and he walked out of the church and did just that. He followed Jesus right into the desert. One thing he did was to board himself up in a small shack. He lived here for twenty years fasting, praying, and doing battle with the devil. His disciples brought him bread and water. Athanasius describes the ter- rible sounds that came from within, how the walls and roof would shake, and how boards would fly off due to the ferocious battle. Anthony would be beaten by demons so much that he could not stand and his body would become covered with wounds. His disciples wit- nessed demons going in and out of holes in the walls. They took the shape of various animals such as lions and bears. Anthony would cry out from the pain, yet all the louder he would recite the Psalms, "Though an army encamp against me my heart shall not fear," Psalm 27:3. After one such battle with the demons, Anthony raised his eyes and he noticed the roof opening above him. A bright light appeared and immedi- ately all the demons fled. He knew it was the Lord. "Where were you good Jesus? Where were you? Why were you not here from the beginning to heal my wounds?" Jesus replied, "Anthony, I was here." A mistake that many modern Christians make is to assume that God is absent or even punishing us when things go badly. Financial crises, sick- ness, and bad events in general are interpreted at divine judgment against us and others. The Desert Fathers are eager to say that this is not true. It merely is a sign that spiritual growth is often difficult. It is hard to change. The desire, choice, and finally living a life in Christ is a battle in which we will become wounded from time to time. The wounds are mostly to our ego, the part of ourselves that we cling to for identity. But it is the ego that we must let go of to live fully the life of Christ. The spiritual battle then is primarly with ourselves and our resistance to change. When we don't see this, the battle merely becomes our self righteous crusade against others and demanding that they change. And then even prayer becomes distorted. It becomes and exercise to change God's mind or to change others and events. But prayer, as the Desert Fa- thers teach us, is primarily our encounter with God, with the Holy One, so that He can change us! When we miss this, we miss a lot. Even the focus our lives is changed. Father Richard Rohr says many times in his talks and teaching that, "Our lives are not about us. They are to be about life." The spiritual life isn't so much about "becoming spiritual." It teaches us to be fully human. When we are selfish, when we are controlling, or instill fear in the name of God, this is living a sub-human life. The spiri- tual life and the teachings from the desert, show us how to be fully human fully loving. We are taught in a practical way how all our are encounters with the divine and divine love. Peace be with you.
