The Language Of Heaven: Spiritual Exercise 02/08/21

The Language of Heaven One of the deepest purifications in the spiritual life is a purification to the truth.  Closely tied to this is a purification of language… because, we most often offend against the truth through language. Words are meant to convey reality.  They allow us to have honest communication with God and with each other.  Changing words, abusing or misusing language does not change reality but it deeply affects our perception of what is real and what isn’t, and can alter, as a consequence, our views, opinions and thoughts in such a way that we become disconnected from reality, from truth.

Easter in a Time of Pandemic – “No Coward Soul is Mine” It’s hard to overstate the crushing trauma and demoralization, the numbing shock, and the paralyzing fear, the apostles experienced as they watched the sufferings and death of Jesus unfold before them in a quick succession of sudden and violent events. Once the betrayal was set in motion, their entire understanding and expectations were brutally assaulted and swiftly destroyed in a matter of hours. So overwhelming was …
