is defined by intention, action and effect, not by semantics. Creation
is an act of love. When Mother Teresa hugged babies to remind us of the
sanctity and preciousness of life, it is an act of love! The Hebrew concept
of love involves a generous, responsive active self-giving, modeled on
that of God. One way to interpreting St. John's "God is Love" is "God is
a Lover"! Do you get the point? In unrefined laymen's terms, it is "Talk
is cheap. Show me the money!" There more we love, the less suffering there
not embrace suffering with open arms like Jesus on the Holy Cross literally
did, and I can only report to you that the best course of action is a conscience,
active, and in trustful surrender to Divine Providence, commending all
that I have. That is an act of life, too. Try to read "The Interior Castle"
by St. Teresa of Avila. She is an expert in achieving union with love.
She is a being deeply in love. She has a sense of Jewish humour, too!
is a library of ideas, an oasis of hope, a forum for debate, an ark of
virtues, a temple of worship, a garden of friendship and an arena of sports.
If you let free your imagination, you are witnessing a workable blueprint
for society and the world at large where humans are given
to reach their full potential and chase their dreams, in uninterrupted
peace. What a phenomenological vision of harmony and progress! Indeed the
reestablishment of Eden is much more than what the English poet William
Blake reckoned to be the restitution of human psychic integration (which
was disintegrated by blake's vision of the Fall). Also, it is very liberating
to read the "Rainbow" by D. H. Lawrence. The vision of the heroine is such
that all toxins such as name-calling, labelling, class distinction, suppression
of mental brutality, social sanctions, pompousness and disrespect of individuals'
wishes are swept aside and a new world is created. Individuals are entitled
to be "fully human and fully alive". (Fr. John Powell S.J., Loyola University,
Chicago). Noah saw a rainbow after the Deluge. What opened up to him must
have been a "new heaven and a new earth". I believe that WYK is a microcosm
of that visionary New Kingdom in which love is the lingua franca of all
human dialogue. Everything else flows from that.
will be all sorts of new challenges for the school. There will always be
space for improvements. Trust that the Sacred Heart will proved. Amen!
