Approaching Solitude

April 1, 2020

St. Paul of the Cross asked his followers to concern themselves with prayer, penance and solitude when they were not preaching missions or doing other apostolic work. There is meaning to that order of: first, prayer; second, penance; and then solitude.  Prayer is the general activity within which penance and solitude take place. Putting ourselves in the presence of God and lifting our minds and hearts to God is the first step. Prayer demands that we choose a place and time for it. Penance, which includes fasting from food, is the second step. It means to recollect ourselves from all of those desires, ideas, projects, and even holy thoughts that we LIKE to think. Penance demands that we choose an event from the scriptures, prepare a physical place for our prayer and set a specific time for that prayer. Third, solitude. What is solitude? “Being alone with God” is good definition. In his recent book entitled, How We Love,  Br. John Mark Falkenhain, (OSB), a psychologist and a Benedictine Brother of St. Meinrad Archabby, has a subtitled section called: The Skill of Cultivating Solitude.  In that section he explains the necessary qualifications for entering into solitude. He says it is a skill. To acquire a skill one must practice and train.   First, we must get used to time spent alone.  It means“. . . learning to tolerate silence and stillness.” It is a time when noise and activity are avoided. “Silence and stillness does not include reading alone, composing sermons, playing solitaire, listening to music, or watching movies. These are not silence and stillness. As countless mystics have suggested, solitude requires that we still our bodies and minds and dial down the noise in our environment long enough to make our resting in the Lord a possibility.”  Secondly, cultivating solitude…

Two Easter Miracles

May 6, 2020

On April 27, I read the following headline: “On April 15 the Tolling of Emmanuel Filled the Skies of Paris”. Emmanuel is a bell. In fact, this bell is the only one that survived the French Revolution of 1789 and to this day remains a symbol of Paris. Emmanuel rang-in a very special event in France! On this occasion she reminded the world of the first anniversary of the fire that destroyed most of Notre Dame Cathedral, stupefying France and the world. It was April 15 2019, at 6.50 p.m., when the fire began its devastation of the magnificent gothic building. The church was consecrated on May 19th, 1182 and since then it had become not only a symbol of Paris and the French nation, but an edifice cherished by believers and non-believers alike throughout the world. On April 27 Emmanuel heralded to Parisians and to the world that the work of the Cathedral’s restoration would pick up again after it was halted due to the Coronavirus last March 16th. But it was not just this news that gave new hope to the world, for on April 10th, Good Friday, the Archbishop of Paris commemorated the Lord’s Passion inside the wounded and empty cathedral, at the feet of the large golden Crucifix that had remained untouched by the fire. The event brought to my mind the motto of the Carthusian Order of monks which dates back to the year 1000: “Stat crux dum volvitur orbis – The Cross Stands Still While the World Turns”. I then recalled the Crucifix of Church of San Marcello in Rome which was miraculously spared from the fire that ravaged the church on the night of May 22-23, 1519. This same Crucifix saved Rome from the plague during the Summer 1522. Pope Francis prayed before…

The Prayer of the Church

March 28, 2020 | Comments Off on The Prayer of the Church

Those of you whom have been participating in our retreats over the past few years know that we have incorporated the Liturgy of the Hours into specific prayer times. A few people have expressed surprise when I said that ‘after the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours is the most important public prayer of the Church.’ Note the word public. In Church life and lingo, something is public when it is done in the name of and on behalf of the Church. It makes no difference if you pray the LOH alone, as your parish priest mostly does, or with…
