"Doctrines, experiences to try, We to the sacred standard fly, Assur'd the Spirit of our Lord Can never contradict his word: Whate'er his Spirit speaks in me, Must with the written word agree; If not: I cast it all aside, As Satan's voice, or nature's pride." Charles Wesley

Lord make me an instrument of your peace Where there is hatred let me sow love Where there is injury, pardon Where there is doubt, faith Where there is despair, hope Where there is darkness, light And where there is sadness, joy. St. Francis of Assisi

The cure of souls is the antithesis of “self-help”. It is founded in the gift of community and the need for others.

The cure of souls requires a depth of understanding in relation to the complexities of the psyche and the human condition. It is far more than a “sinners prayer” or a “decision for Christ”. Reductionism negates the comprehensiveness of “so great a salvation”.

If the theological community and the therapeutic psychological community can come together and reason together, perhaps there can be a grace to be shown by the Spirit ways yet undiscerned in our post-modern era, of breakthroughs in the cure of souls rooted in the ancient faith.

If he could pass through the sheets, a stone over the entrance of the tomb posed no challenge whatsover. The face cloth, the napkin, signaled that he had tasted death for all humanity. These were tokens, signs, portents of an undying love that was stronger than death.

It was love that brought the women to the tomb on Resurrection morning. It was love that rolled the stone away. It was loved that left the cocoon of linen wrappings as a sign. The face cloth was intentionally the only thing "folded" by Jesus post his resurrection. All were signs.

Theologians need help interpreting psychological language lest they be dismissive and reduce it to insigificance. Psychologists need help interpreting theological language for the same reason. Finding common ground will serve towards a greater floruishing for the human condition.

Perhaps even more sadly, were how many others were like him. Only the Quakers had condemned slavery as a sin.

There were at least 3 Mary's at the Cross, and at least 2 at the tomb...are we reading a Jewish story or an Italian one?

My pastoral administrator:“Bishop, How long did it take for Jesus to ascend? (She really meant:"How long was the period between Resurrection and Ascension" (as in 40 Days) My NYC Italian Answer:“Took Him a few seconds probably” You can take the Italian out of New York but...
