Spirituality: "Earth" Richard Rohr IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - June 16, 2017 We naturally move from the concrete to the universal, and so it makes sense to begin loving Earth, caring for God's creation, with what is closest to us. Becoming intimate with God's presence in one aspect of creation—be it a pet, birdsong, garden, or favorite wild space—can move us toward loving our forgotten brothers and sisters, human or otherwise, through compassionate actions.http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/06/spirituality-earth-richard-rohr.html

Spirituality: "There Is No Redemptive Violence" Richard Rohr IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - June 11, 2017 Leviticus 16 describes the ingenious ritual from which our word "scapegoating" originated. On the Day of Atonement, a priest laid hands on an "escaping" goat, placing all the sins of the Jewish people from the previous year onto the animal. Then the goat was beaten with reeds and thorns and driven out into the desert. And the people went home rejoicing, just as European Christians did after burning a supposed heretic at the stake, or white Americans did after the lynching of black men. ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/06/spirituality-there-is-no-redemptive.html

Spirituality: Richard Rohr IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - June 10, 2017 Rather than being taught that we can and should follow Jesus as "partners in his great triumphal procession" (2 Corinthians 2:14), we were told to be grateful spectators and admirers of what he once did. Instead of a totally "Inclusive Savior" we made Jesus into an object of exclusive and exclusionary worship. Then we argued and divided over what kind of worship he preferred. Jesus never asked for worship, only that we "follow" him (Mark 1:18) as fellow attractors ("fishers of people") ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/06/spirituality-richard-rohr.html

Spirituality: Richard Rohr IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - May 27, 2017 All the great religions of the world talk a lot about death, so there must be an essential lesson to be learned here. But throughout much of religious history our emphasis has been on killing the wrong thing and avoiding the truth: it's you who has to die, or rather, who you think you are—your false self. It's never someone else! Historically we moved from human sacrifice to animal sacrifice to various modes of seeming self-sacrifice, usually involving the body. For many ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/05/spirituality-richard-rohr_27.html

Spirituality: Richard Rohr IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - May 26, 2017 If your ego is still in charge, you will find a "disposable" person or group on which to project your problems. People who haven't come to at least a minimal awareness of their own dark side will always find someone else to hate or fear. Hatred holds a group together much more quickly and easily than love and inclusivity, I am sorry to say. Something has to be sacrificed. Blood has to be shed. Someone has to be blamed, attacked, tortured, imprisoned, or killed. Sacrificial systems ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/05/spirituality-richard-rohr.html
