22. When the body's perception is sound one is aware of what sickness afflicts it, while if one is not aware one is a victim of obtuseness. Similarly, the intellect, as long as it preserves its own proper energy, is conscious of its powers and knows from where the tyrannizing passions enter it; and it makes a determined stand against them. But it is terrible to pass one's days in a state of oblivion, like one who fights by night, not being able to see the evil thoughts against which one is battling. 23. When our intelligence unyieldingly devotes itself to the contemplation of the virtues, and our desire is focused solely on this and on Christ who bestows it, while our soul's incensive power arms itself against the demons, then our faculties are acting according to nature. 24. Every deiform soul is tripartite, according to Gregory the Theologian. Virtue, then established in the intelligence, he calls discretion, understanding and wisdom: when in the incensive power, he calls it courage and patience: and when in the faculty of desire, he calls it love, self-restraint and self-control. Justice or right judgment penetrates all three aspects of the soul, enabling them to function in harmony. Through discretion the soul fights against the hostile powers and defends the virtues. Through self-restraint it views things dispassionately. Through love it urges a man to love all men as himself. Through self-control it eliminates every sensual pleasure. Finally, through courage and patience it arms itself against its invisible enemies. This is the harmony of the melodious organ of the soul. 25. Let him who cultivates self-restraint and longs for blessed purity - which could rightly be called dispassion - discipline the flesh and bring it into subjection, with humble thoughts invoking divine grace, and he will achieve the aim he desires. But he who feeds the body intemperately will be tormented by the demon of unchastity. Just as much water puts out a flame, so hunger or self-control combined with humility of soul extinguishes the fever of the flesh and of shameful fantasies.

Your Faith Journey - Finding God Through Words, Song and Praise

In his book, Jacob the Baker: Gentle Wisdom For a Complicated World, Jewish poet-philosopher, scholar and theologian, Noah BenShea, writes, “Either the key to a man's wallet is in his heart, or the key to a man's heart is in his wallet.  So, unless you express your charity, you are locked inside your greed.”  Did you hear that?  Unless you express your charity, unless you live generously by giving of what you have to others, you are locked inside, you are imprisoned in your greed!  Wow!!  I think Jesus would have liked what BenShea has to say because Jesus also has something to say about greed.  Today, we hear Jesus tell us, “Take care!  Be on your guard against all kinds of greed.”  Today, Jesus takes us to a place where most of us do not want to go as he draws us into a conversation about money.  Quite frankly, talking about money makes us uncomfortable as individuals, uncomfortable within the context of our faith communities, and causes great anxiety.  Many of us learn from a very early age that conversations about money are taboo.  Avoiding such a conversation is one of those unspoken rules in our culture.  We find it very uncomfortable to talk about the amount of money we make, the amount of money we tightly hold on to, the amount of money we hold in investments, the amount of money we have as disposable income, the amount of money we pay in taxes, and the amount of money we give away.  Well, today, Jesus breaks this unspoken rule and takes us into territory of the taboo as he talks about money.  Today, Jesus exposes human greed and anxiety about money, and he uses his famous teaching tool, a parable, to burn away any illusion we may have that a godly life is synonymous with our American ideals of prosperity and success.   Quite frankly, Jesus talked more about our relationship with money and our possessions more than almost any other topic, and today is one example.  The writer of Luke's gospel tells us Jesus is with a crowd of people and he is teaching.  He is approached by a man who asks him to arbitrate an inheritance dispute he is having with his brother.  A family feud is set before him, and Jesus opts out of getting involved in the squabble.  Instead, he uses the opportunity to talk about money and a right relationship with money.  Jesus tells a story that has become known as the Parable of the Rich Fool.  Now, it is important to recognize that the man in this parable is not portrayed as particularly wicked.  He is not defined as one whose wealth was gained by illegal means.  He is not one of those despised tax collectors and he has not stolen anything.  From the little we do know about him, we can surmise that he became wealthy by the sweat of his brow, by very honest means.  He is a farmer, and his land has produced immense harvests.  Truthfully, his decision to save for the future by building bigger barns does not seem all that unreasonable.  He simply needs space for his abundant harvest.  So, I must ask, what is wrong with saving for a rainy day? Well, the truth is there is nothing wrong with saving for a rainy day.  This rich fool's foolishness is not necessarily about his plan to build a bigger barn.  His foolishness has everything to do with his heart!  His foolishness is all about the relationship he has with his money and possessions.  Did you happen to notice the dialogue this man is having with himself?  If we take a deeper look at the inner conversation going on within this man, it becomes rather enlightening.  He says, “What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?  I will do this.  I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.'”  Did you notice the hubris, the focus on self, the attention and emphasis on the me, the importance of the “I”?  As Episcopalian priest Anjel Scarborough points out, “In this short internal dialog, consisting of approximately 60 words, the man uses 11 references to himself with the personal pronouns ‘I' and ‘my'.  If we add to this the words that reference ‘soul' and ‘you' as part of that inner dialog about himself, then we have 22 percent of the words in this short passage talking about, well, ‘me.'”  Yes, it is all about him.  Everything revolves around him!  You see, this rich fool's foolishness has everything to do with his heart.  Here we get a glimpse of this man's spiritual illness.  As my colleague says, “This man is all about the unholy trinity of me, myself, and I.  There are no references at all to others – not to family, friends, or those in need, and certainly no references to God.  He is under the mistaken belief that all this wealth is his:  it is his possession, it is in his control, and he lives with the delusion that he alone produced this wealth.”  This man has much money, but the key to his heart is in his wallet and his heart is spiritually, morally, and ethically bankrupt! Well, that is not the end of the story.  His narcissistic perspective is not his only delusion.  The other delusion that truly distorts this man's relationship with his wealth is brought to light when God addresses him.  God says, “You fool!  This very night your life is being demanded of you.  And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?”  Oh my!  Here we get to something that is so important, something that none of us want to face.  Here we get to the heart of what is really true about life, and that is the stark reality of death.  It is here where the truth is revealed.  You see, when we face this ultimate reality, we soon discover that no amount of wealth or possessions can save us from our own finitude.  This man will die.  We will die.  And, you know what?  Death is the great equalizer because, when we die, our net worth in dollars is really zero!  And nothing, no matter how hard we try, can prevent our death.  With death we discover all that we have, all that we own, all our striving to make it to the top – all of these are temporal and none of these things are of ultimate worth.  None of these things will save us.  Theologian, David Schlafer, when talking about today's gospel reading and our relationship as a community of faith with money, shares these words of wisdom:  Money serves as a kind of thermostat for issues of anxiety and control within our congregations.  As the work of Edwin Friedman and Peter Steinke on family systems illustrates, money matters often reveal the true heart of a church organization, as well as of our individual households.  Money is always about more than money.  Our spending, our saving, and our general attitude toward material wealth are all invested with emotions and memories.  A capacity to trust in God can deepen only as other matters lessen their grip in our lives.  Today's Gospel text sets that reality before us in the starkest terms.  (Feasting on the Word, p. 312) Our money and possessions are not going to save us.  Yet, while we know this in our heads, our hearts have a difficult time believing this.  Our anxiety over money issues controls us and determines our actions and the way we live as stewards of all that we have been given.  We are anxious about our jobs, about our retirement and the way a bi-polar stock market effects our 401(k)'s, about putting our kids through school, about paying all our bills, about inflation, and so much more.  As we look at our anxieties regarding money, do you see how they are all focused on the self?  This internal focus on self becomes one in which the key to our hearts is in our wallets and we become imprisoned in our anxieties and our greed.  As Christians, we are called to shift our attention and emphasis away from the small, vain, egocentric self and focus outward by living into a radical trust in God.  When that happens, we view wealth very differently.  In fact, we begin to see that our money and possessions are not really ours at all.  They all belong to God.  All that we have and all that we are comes from God and really is only on loan.  God invites us into a life that is greater than our anxious fear over things that have no ultimate worth.  God invites us into a deeper relationship with God's very self and with each other.  God invites us into the eternal economy of God's grace, mercy, and love – the immeasurable love we see exhibited in the self-emptying life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  In Jesus, we see the very heart of God, and that is where we find the ultimate and lasting treasure – the key that unlocks our hearts so we can live for others, the key that enables us to live lives that are rich toward God.

"Saint Irene, who was from Cappadocia, flourished in the ninth century. Because of her great beauty and virtue, she was brought to Constantinople as a prospective bride for the young Emperor Michael (8422-867); however, as St Joannicius the Great foretold, it was God's will that she assume the monastic habit instead. She shone forth in great ascetical labors, and suffered many attacks from the demons; while yet a novice, she attained to the practice of St Arsenius the Great, of praying the whole night long with arms stretched out towards Heaven (see May 8). God showed forth great signs and wonders in her, and she became the Abbess of the Convent of Chrysovalantou. She was granted the gift of clairvoyance and knew the thoughts of all that came to her. She appeared in a vision to the king and rebuked him for unjustly imprisoning a nobleman who had been falsely accused. Through a sailor from Patmos to whom he had appeared, St John the Theologian sent her fragrant and wondrous apples from Paradise. She reposed at the age of 103, still retaining the youthful beauty of her countenance. After her repose, marvellous healings beyond number have been wrought by her to the present day." (Great Horologion)

She was from the town of Magdala on the Sea of Galilee, for which reason she is called "Magdalene." The Lord Jesus cast out seven demons from her, after which she became His faithful disciple, following Him even to the Cross when most of His disciples had fled. With the other holy Myrrh-bearers, she prepared the spices to anoint His body and carried them to His tomb. There she was one of the first witnesses to the Resurrection, and the first to proclaim it.   Various traditions hold that, after Christ's ascension, she traveled to Rome, where she presented the Emperor with a red egg and proclaimed "Christ is Risen!" For this reason her icons often show her holding a red egg, and from this the tradition of distributing red eggs at Pascha is said to have arisen. She is then said to have travelled to Ephesus where she helped St John the Theologian in his gospel ministry before reposing there.   Mary Magdalene is sometimes identified with the "sinful woman" of the Gospels, but this is not the Church's tradition. Neither the Gospels nor the sacred hymnography of the Church make this connection.   The name 'Madeleine' is a form of 'Magdalene'.

Your Faith Journey - Finding God Through Words, Song and Praise

As we look at today's gospel reading, I am going to start right out by saying that I think far too often Martha has gotten a bad rap. However, I have not always felt this way.  So, let me explain. I have three siblings.  I have always been the studious one, while my siblings have focused on other things.  I have always taken great pride in my studious work, and I frequently judged my siblings for not being as serious about their educational experience.  So, when I look at today's gospel reading from the perspective of my life, I realize that for many years I justified my actions by seeing myself as a Mary, thinking I was better because I was really choosing to do the “right” thing, the better thing, the main thing, choosing what I believed was more or most important.   For years, my understanding of this gospel story went something like this:  Martha is doing her best to show hospitality to Jesus and the rest of her guests, busily working away on the food, while Mary does something very unusual.  Normally in the ancient world, all the adult women would have shared in the responsibility of preparing a meal, but Mary does not do so.  Instead, she intentionally  chooses to quietly sit at Jesus' feet, a posture normally reserved only for men in that ancient culture.  Like a student or disciple, she intently listens to what Jesus is saying.  Well, Martha gets upset about this, and worry, anxiety and frustration bubble up within her.  Tired of doing all the work while Mary sits, Martha lets her feelings be known.  Instead of going directly to Mary, she goes to Jesus and reprimands him, trying to get him to tell Mary to get to work.  Jesus then gently scolds Martha and seems to take Mary's side in the dispute when he says, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things, but there is need of only one thing.  Mary has chosen it; Mary has chosen the better part.”  And there you go – for years, that understanding of this story provided my justification for the way I focused on my studies! However, I have gradually learned that, if I am going to really understand what this story is saying to us, I need to grapple with Jesus' response.  Just why does Jesus praise Mary and defend her against Martha?  Is he criticizing busy work, “busy work Christianity”?  In other words, is he saying to Martha, “Stop being so busily religious and start being more spiritual, like Mary?” I think not.  Martha was not doing something trivial.  Showing hospitality and cooking the meal were of utmost importance.  After all, being hospitable means that somebody must cook the meal and set the table.  And, when I think of church life and consider some of the busy work we see in our faith community – filling our food pantries, caring for the refugees and transporting them to places they need to go, getting communion set up for weekly Sunday morning worship, sewing quilts for Lutheran World Relief, serving on Church Council, helping with Vacation Bible School, maintaining the church building, the list goes on and on – all of these are the forms love and faith take.  I do not believe Jesus would say to us, “You people are preoccupied with busy work.  Leave the children, the needy, the ill, the lonely behind.  Come sit and meditate for a while.  This is the better part.” I believe that to get close to the real heart of this story, we must look at it within the context of where it is found in Luke's gospel.  The Mary and Martha story comes right after the Parable of the Good Samaritan which we heard last week.  That parable illustrates love of neighbor – the action of the Samaritan, something the Samaritan did.  Today's story illustrates love of God, and you cannot separate the two.  You cannot say, over here is the love of neighbor and over there is the love of God.  No, both are intimately intertwined, mixed together, and of one piece. They cannot be separated.  There is nothing wrong with Martha's busyness.  And, quite honestly, there is something absolutely essential in showing one's love of God and neighbor by baking the bread and slicing the potatoes, by working on our roof fundraising event, by driving one of our refugee friends to school or Immigration Court, by filling the pantries, by helping with VBS, by participating in the work of the Green Team, by practicing welcome to all who are in the margins of society.  These are the ways people show love, hospitality, and care and, frankly, we could stand to see more of this.  Martha's act of service is a good and necessary thing.  But, if we try to do this kind of service apart from hearing and receiving the nourishing, life-giving Word of the gospel, apart from the vision that comes from God, apart from what Nadia Bolz Weber calls the “MAIN thing,” we will finally wear down.  Mary, on the other hand, has chosen to listen to the Word.  Jesus, the life-giving, living Word – the MAIN thing – is present to her, right in her house.  And, if she is going to love God and love neighbor, show hospitality to the stranger and care for the lost, then everything depends on hearing and trusting that Word.  Making room for the life-giving Spirit of God to breathe freely into us renews our living and serving.  One response is not better than the other. What matters most is the ability to discern what to do in each moment. In this story, Martha's anxiety ridden busyness simply seems rather ill-timed. As my friend suggests, it's not the busyness by itself that's the problem, but maybe the timing of it. Theologian, Paul Tillich, once put it this way. "There are innumerable concerns in our lives and in human life generally which demand attention, devotion, and passion. But they do not demand infinite attention, unconditional devotion, ultimate passion. They are important, often very important, for you and me and for the whole of humankind. But they are not ultimately important...." Figuring out what is ultimately important – the MAIN thing – and putting that first is the challenge of the Gospel.  In fact, when talking about today's reading, I love the way Nadia Bolz Weber describes “the MAIN thing.”  She writes: The main thing – the thing that will not be taken away and that we (myself included) so easily forget is our sacred story.  It's a simple story, really. Even as it is unfathomable in its beauty… So here it is again…since I too often forget – there is a God who created us and all that is, this same God spoke through prophets and poets, claimed a people to be God's own and freed them from the shackles of slavery. This same God led those people through the wilderness to a land of milk and honey, and told them to always welcome the stranger and protect the foreigner so that they could remember where they came from and what God had done for them. Then in the fullness of time, and to draw ALL people to himself, God came and broke our hearts like only a baby could do and made God's home in the womb of a fierce young woman as though God was saying, from now on this is how I want to be known. And Jesus God kissed lepers and befriended prostitutes and baffled authority. Jesus ate with all the wrong people and on the night before he died held up bread and told us to do the same thing and he promised us so much: that he would be with us, that forgiveness is real, that we are God's, that people matter, and that grilled fish makes an awesome breakfast.  And from the tree on which Jesus hung he pronounced judgment on us all. “Forgive them Father, they know not what they are doing”. We never do, really, we never seem to know what we are doing and sometimes we think the Bible is going to solve that for us…that a story like Jesus' visit with Martha and Mary is going to give us a clear moral lesson so we can know what we are doing, [so we can justify what we do.]  And then we think we've got it down and then we begin to judge the actions of others and the moment we do this we've once again lost the plot. Oh, yes. The sacred story of God's love IS the MAIN THING!  We need to hear this story over and over and over again, and it can never be taken away from us because it is always forming us.  As we gather around Word and Sacrament, it is always shaping who we are as God's people, as the body of Christ.  Today's reading is not about hearing OR doing.  It is about hearing AND doing.  The good news is that when we sit down and eat our fill of the life-giving Word of God, when we have been nourished at this table, we will also be ready to put hands and feet, hearts and minds to work.

On "EWTN News Nightly" tonight: In a speech at the White House today, President Joe Biden once again harshly criticized the Supreme Court's decision, two weeks ago, that ended Roe v. Wade and signed an executive order aimed at ensuring abortion access. And with the midterm elections just over 100 days away, the push is on by both Republicans and Democrats to win seats in Congress. Democrats have ramped up their efforts to make abortion rights front and center, with a multi-million dollar ad campaign. And churches are not the only buildings facing threats these days. Pro-life pregnancy centers also are under attack across the US. President of Heartbeat International, Jor-El Godsey, joins to share his thoughts on President Biden's executive order to help ensure access to abortions and how that might impact the work he does. Nearly 3 dozen faith-based institutions say they are divesting from fossil fuel companies.

QUOTES FOR REFLECTION “No matter how much individuals do through their own efforts, they cannot actively purify themselves enough to be disposed in the least degree for the divine union of the perfection of love. God must take over…” ~St. John of the Cross, Roman Catholic priest, 1542-1591 “After each failure, ask forgiveness, pick yourself up, and try again. Very often what God first helps us toward is not the virtue itself but just this power of always trying again. For however important chastity (or courage, or truthfulness, or any other virtue) may be, this process trains us in habits of the soul which are more important still. It cures our illusions about ourselves and teaches us to depend on God. We learn, on the one hand, that we cannot trust ourselves even in our best moments, and, on the other, that we need not despair even in our worst, for our failures are forgiven.” ~C.S. Lewis, Academic and Theologian, 1898-1963 “Love without truth is sentimentality; it supports and affirms us but keeps us in denial about our flaws. Truth without love is harshness; it gives us information but in such a way that we cannot really hear it. God's saving love in Christ, however, is marked by both radical truthfulness about who we are and yet also radical, unconditional commitment to us. The merciful commitment strengthens us to see the truth about ourselves and repent. The conviction and repentance moves us to cling to and rest in God's mercy and grace.” ~Tim Keller, American pastor “And I can't be running back and forth forever between grief and high delight.” ~J.D. Salinger, American author, 1919-2010 “The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie.” ~Shannon Adler, American author and therapist “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” ~Deuteronomy 31:8 SERMON PASSAGE Psalm 4 (NIV) For the director of music. With stringed instruments.

How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? 3 Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him. 4 Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. 5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the LORD. 6 Many, LORD, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. 7 Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. 8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.

In the struggle against the Arian heresy, Meletius, Patriarch of Antioch, was deposed, and the emperor Constantius demanded that Eusebius surrender the document that proved his legitimate appointment to the Patriarchal throne. Eusebius said he would not surrender it without the permission of all who had signed it and, when imperial soldiers threatened to cut off his right hand, he held out both his hands to them. When Constantius heard of this, he was struck with admiration and ceased his persecution of the bishop. As the Arian heresy continued to rage, Eusebius stood strong, and was finally exiled by order of the Emperor Valens. When the messenger bearing the edict of banishment arrived, Eusebius warned him to keep quiet lest the people, hearing why he had come, should kill him. Then Eusebius left the city on foot, under cover of darkness, in order to protect the messenger from harm. Upon the death of Valens, Eusebius returned to from exile and traveled throughout Syria (though he was now a very old man), appointing priests and bishops known for their Orthodoxy. About 380, as he was entering a village to enthrone a bishop, an Arian woman threw a tile at him from a rooftop, fracturing his skull. As he lay dying, he made all the bystanders swear not to take any revenge.   Saint Gregory the Theologian corresponded with Eusebius, and esteemed him so highly that in a letter to him he wrote, 'That such a man should deign to be my patron also in his prayers will gain for me, I am persuaded, as much strength as I should have gained through one of the holy martyrs.'
