Personal Reflections: October 2005 Archives

We must begin by purifying ourselves before purifying others; we must be instructed to be able to instruct, become light to illuminate, draw close to God to bring him close to others, be sanctified to sanctify, lead by the hand and counsel prudently. I know whose ministers we are, where we find ourselves and to where we strive. I know God's greatness and man's weakness, but also his potential. Who then is the priest? He is the defender of truth, who stands with angels, gives glory with archangels, causes sacrifices to rise to the altar on high, shares Christ's priesthood, refashions creation, restores it in God's image, recreates it for the world on high and, even greater, is divinized and divinizes.

Lovely little quote from Jean Corbon OP over at Ignatius Press.

On the other hand, if we do constantly renew this offering of our sinful hearts, let us not imagine that our New Covenant with Jesus will be a personal encounter pure and simple.

The book by Corbon is one of my favorites. It was a gift from a friend in Rome.

I made the mistake of attending the charismatic prayer meeting tonight. The man speaking said the exact opposite. It was mostly "me and Jesus." I am still discerning what to do about that group.
