Fr. Tim's Letter - September 16, 2018

Abandoned Church by Philip Brookes courtesy of Flickr.jpg

From Italian writer, Carlo Carretto (+1988), via Father Ron Rolheiser, OMI, through the kindness of 2 parishioners, regarding these days in the Church...allowing ourselves a “love/hate relationship” with the Church, as Norbertine Father John Bostwick would say...

 “How much I must criticize you, my Church; and yet how much I love you!

How you have made me suffer much; and yet I owe so much to you.

I should like to see you destroyed; and yet I need your presence. 

You have given me much scandal; and yet you alone have made me understand holiness.

Never in this world have I seen anything more obscuring, more compromised, more false; and yet never in this world have I touched anything more pure, more generous, and more beautiful.

Many times I have felt like slamming the door of my soul in your face; and yet how often I have prayed that I might die in your sure arms!

No, I cannot be free of you, for I am one with you, even though not completely you.

Then, too – where would I go?                          

To build another Church?

But I cannot build another without the same defects, for they are my own defects I bear within me. 

And again, if I build one, it will be my Church, and no longer Christ’s.

No, I am old enough to know that I am no better than others.

I shall not leave this Church, founded on so frail a rock, because I should be founding another one on an even frailer rock: myself.

And then, what do rocks matter?

What matters is Christ’s promise; what matters is the cement that binds the rocks into one: the Holy Spirit. 

The Holy Spirit alone can build the Church with stones as ill-hewn as we.

The Church - “God bless us...EVERY one”!

 

A Prayer for Healing

Prayer for Healing

Loving God,

In the light of so much suffering we come before you as your hurting people in need of healing.

Knowing we are a Church of saints and sinners, we acknowledge our own sinfulness and ask forgiveness for the times we have injured or neglected others.

Knowing we are called to holiness, we trust you to lead us on our journey to be a renewed Church for with you all things are possible.

Christ Jesus, continue to walk among us as we leave. Embrace us with healing. Grace us with reconciliation. Empower us to love as you love, because healing, reconciliation, and love are beyond our human capacity alone.

Spirit of God, seize our hearts. Awaken us to gratitude and newness of life.

Amen
