“A Spiritual Immersion Program” by Linda Granzow

In 07 Observations on 2013/03/27 at 12:00 AM

My daughter is pursuing fluency in Spanish.  At the age of almost 17, she is also pursuing, with great fervor and persuasion of her parents, the opportunity to sojourn in Spain this summer for a four-week immersion program, where she will use the language out of necessity on a daily basis, live with a Spanish family, take classes, participate in cultural activities and ultimately, detaching herself from the familiar and comfortable habits and ways of her life, rise to the challenge and truly unlock the hidden potential within herself to expand not only a part of her brain, but also her very “being” which will be forever changed.

In the meantime, she is grinding through the learning of Spanish grammar, in all of its intricate uses of preterite, imperfect and future tenses.  So it should have come as no surprise to me when she offhandedly commented after Ash Wednesday Mass that the words spoken at the distribution of the ashes, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return,” seemed grammatically inaccurate.  How could it be possible to be dust, yet in the same breath be reminded that you will be dust someday?  One implies that you already are and the latter that you were and will be again.

In Genesis, we read that God formed man from the earth, the dust, a physical transformation that could only be wrought by the Creator Himself.  In the span of time in which the physical body is breathing and walking and living on this earth, it is still a temporary “temple,” as St. Paul describes in his first letter to the Corinthians, a sacred vessel for God’s Holy Spirit that lies within it, the soul which the Creator infused into the body at its inception.  The body will change in myriad ways as it matures, but no matter how well it is nourished and nurtured and strengthened, it will ultimately and literally return to the earth, to dust.  But what of the soul within that body?  Since we “believe in the visible and invisible” (our Creed), the soul, although it cannot be seen, is as real as any other organ in the body and it too changes during the life of a person.  It too will develop and journey through myriad changes, whether it is nurtured or ignored, weakened or strengthened through free acts of the will and the intellect.  But unlike the body, the soul is not created from the dust, so it will never return there.  This very essence of “being,” as unique as the body itself from every other person who ever lived or will live, is forever changed and will continue on into eternity—an eternity with Him or without Him.  It is hard to imagine spending an eternity with someone if you do not speak the same language.

We are born into the family of mankind where we speak the native language of a fallen human nature.  But the deepest longing of our soul, whether we realize it or not, is to speak the perfect love language of God and with God.   In the pursuit of this fluency, we will undoubtedly encounter mispronunciations in the form of sin.  But as in learning a foreign language, the more we follow the rules of the language, learn the vocabulary and immerse ourselves in a day-to-day practice of the language, we will transform ourselves in such a way that speaking this language of love, which is God, will flow out of us almost effortlessly.

Now is the time to begin our own spiritual immersion program in which to improve our fluency in the language of the soul—the love language spoken by God to each of us every day of our earthly lives.  Detaching ourselves from our familiar habits, participating in the disciplines and devotions of our faith and sustaining ourselves with the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, will impel us to rise to the challenge of learning His language and ultimately, when our bodies return to the dust, our souls will be able to speak fluently with Him in eternity.

The Unexpected Debate by Linda Granzow

In 07 Observations on 2012/04/26 at 9:11 AM

Up until the 21st century, no reasonable human being, of faith or not, would have ever deemed it possible that the definition and understanding of marriage could be the subject of a statewide vote to either protect it or to redefine and reinvent it as something other, something less than what it has always been. The ever increasing relativism and disregard for absolute truths based on natural law in our society has put us at an unimaginable crossroads at this moment in history. This is a country founded and fought for, where religious liberty (freedom of religion, not freedom from religion) and true freedom would form the ideal society—true freedom, not to do whatever we want, but the liberty to do what is right.

In the midst of desensitization, through the media, targeted especially toward the younger generations to unprecedented violence, pornography, divorce and homosexual activity, there appears a trend toward indifference to this critical issue of what constitutes marriage and even growing support for radical negation of an undeniable truth. Many say, “What’s the big deal? I don’t have to approve of their lifestyle. If they want to get married, who cares?” It is a lack of understanding and an exaggerated expression of tolerance for any desire, urge, want, or fashionable cause that is automatically presumed to be a “right,” even if it goes against the very nature of what it means to be a man or woman, violates the natural law and ultimately corrupts and devolves the society into chaos.

Biology Lesson & Common Sense 

Males and females are physically different and are so obviously meant to join together like two puzzle pieces that fit perfectly. Further, when they join together in that beautifully perfect way, the physical reality often results in a chain of events that actually creates a new male or female.

Take for example the classic children’s toy, Tinker Toys. The inventor of Tinker Toys created simple wooden wheels with holes, and sticks which would fit perfectly into the holes. As these individual pieces are connected together, a fantastic building process takes place, limited only by the number of pieces in the set and the child’s imagination. But if one were to take all of the wheels by themselves and try to build something, the best would be to build a tower or perhaps a pyramid, which would be easily knocked down. So too, the sticks by themselves do not have the ability to build anything. It is only through the joining of the wheels and the sticks that something wonderful and structurally stable can be built.

In the same way, neither females by themselves nor males by themselves can build a wonderful and structurally stable family, community or society. In fact, the species would die out! So the primary biological purpose of sexuality for animals and humans is to procreate to ensure the species’ survival. The United States Supreme Court agreed when it said that marriage is “fundamental to the very existence and survival of the (human) race.”  In the human species, because of the added element of the soul, sexuality takes on a much deeper meaning and purpose. We are wired not only to perpetuate our community, but also to love and protect others within that community. We do this through different bonds of love depending upon our relationship to another person.

Friendship and Beyond 

We are all born capable of loving and being loved, and in fact, we need it. There are many forms that love can take, for example, the love between a mother and her child, the love between two friends, the love between a child and his dog, and the love between a man and a woman. Between two human beings, married love is the fullest expression of love. This has been true throughout human history because it requires a lifelong, faithful commitment between a man and a woman, usually witnessed by others in the community, to love and protect each other and to love and protect the children who are created out of their sexual union. This definition of marriage “has served as the very cornerstone of civilization and culture from the start.” (Archbishop Timothy Dolan)

Although we could say that a great bond of love exists between a mother and her child, we would never say that the two could be married. We could admire the bond of love between a child and his dog, but we would never say that the two could be married. In these instances, the nature of the bond of love does not fit the reality of what marriage is. Two men or two women could be great friends and enjoy each other’s company and they may have a logical expectation that they will have a lifelong friendship. But their bond of friendship love will never fit the reality of what marriage is by definition.

Dignity and Rights 

Each human being is born with inherent goodness. Even someone born with a physical or mental disability is endowed with an inherent goodness and dignity and is entitled to certain rights to life and liberty. As such, a society or culture recognizes basic natural laws—laws that are instinctively known by each individual–that protect the dignity and rights to life and liberty of its individual members. For example, a natural law would be the instinctive knowledge that killing another human being takes away that person’s right to live. Therefore, it becomes “against the law” to kill another person.

Another natural law is in the area of sexuality. Instinctively, individuals know that they are physically made as a male or a female and know that they are made to fit together complementarily for procreation. In the same way that circumstances, environment and temperament can affect a person to the point where he no longer honors the natural law against killing and instead chooses to fulfill an errant desire to commit murder, these same elements can affect a person to the point where he no longer honors the natural law of sexuality and instead gives in to an errant desire to commit rape, incest, pedophilia or homosexual acts.

Although the dignity of the person who commits such acts must be respected, the behaviors themselves cannot be allowed to supersede the natural laws that exist for the good of other individuals and that of society as a whole.  As specifically related to the question of rights for homosexual individuals, Archbishop Timothy Dolan clarified that “the Church affirms the basic human rights of gay men and women, and the state has rightly changed many laws to offer these men and women hospital visitation rights, bereavement leave, death benefits, insurance benefits, and the like. This is not about denying rights. It is about upholding a truth about the human condition.”  Logically, it is not about denying homosexual couples a “right” to marriage since, by the very definition of marriage, that “right” does not exist for them in the first place.

Real versus Counterfeit 

Over the last several years, a very small group of people in this country has been forcefully pushing an agenda to change our society’s view on homosexuality even to the point of demanding that homosexual couples be allowed to marry. Although it is easy to psychologically understand their overwhelming and desperate desire to have their unnatural sexual actions be accepted as “normal” and just another lifestyle choice among many, the reality is that it is a counterfeit of reality. The very fact that in discussions it is referred to as “gay marriage” openly acknowledges that it is not the real thing—the word “marriage” has to be qualified with the word “gay” because it is different and not the same. Think of the popular game Monopoly and Monopoly money. The qualifying word “Monopoly” reveals that it is different from the real money used in our country on which our whole economy is based. What would happen if our country decided to allow a counterfeit to commingle with reality?

Although both are made of paper, money from the game cannot be used to buy things in real life. Why can you not go into a store and buy a loaf of bread with Monopoly money? Is it because the paper itself is not good? No, it is because the value of the exchange of that paper is not backed by a tangible valuable asset such as gold.

Suppose a small group of people in this country decided to pool all of their Monopoly money and present it at a store to buy food. The store would refuse to sell, not because those presenting the money are not good people, but because the money they are trying to use is not real. Imagine the group presents a plea to the government saying they are trying to buy food and the store will not sell it to them. What would happen to the economy of that society if the government ruled that the store must accept Monopoly money from that group? Chaos and economic collapse would result because real and counterfeit money cannot be circulated at the same time.

In the same way, a small group of people who think they have a “right” to go to the government and say they want to have the ability to get “married” is proposing that it would be acceptable to have a counterfeit institution pass for the real thing. But the result for the society would also be collapse. In addition, once something counterfeit is forced to be accepted as the real thing, any entity that does not honor the counterfeit would be punished for discrimination. This is what would happen in our country to churches, businesses and individuals who, based on their faith, morals and ethical standards, refused to accept the counterfeit.

Protecting Marriage 

Although it seemed impossible that the integrity of the true meaning of marriage would someday need to be protected, that day is here. Thirty states have already passed an amendment to their state constitutions protecting the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is due to the current vulnerability of marriage as an institution, one which is the basic building block of a civilized and productive society, to be subject to activist judges and lawmakers who would impose decisions changing the real definition of marriage to allow its counterfeit “same-sex marriage.” Marriage is the logical, ideal and intended haven for the procreation, protection and raising of children. This is supported by an overwhelming body of social science evidence. Of course, for those who truly believe in the God who created man and woman and are still unsure, He has provided a most explicit and definitive answer to what the outcome of this unexpected debate should be.  (Genesis 1:27-28, 2:21-25, Leviticus 20:13, 18:22-24, Romans 1:24-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

The New Victims of Discrimination.

In 07 Observations on 2011/09/09 at 6:06 AM

By Linda Granzow

I recently attended the movie, “The Help”, which is set in Jackson, Mississippi at the height of civil rights unrest. Pitting a young white woman, Skeeter, whose conscience is finally opened to the reality of the discrimination against blacks, against her long-time friend, Hilly, whose lifestyle and aspirations hinge on the status quo, the author portrays the intense division that occurred in this country when people began to question and fight for what was right, not what was merely legal.

It is difficult to watch the way injustices can be committed against a particular group of human beings just because of race or religion or identity. At the time, it was “legal” to discriminate against blacks and to treat them as something less than fully human. When we look back at that time period, we are appalled that something like that could have ever been tolerated—that a cultural and societal mindset could have ever trumped the natural law of the dignity of every human person. Barbaric acts of torture and murder were committed by one group of human beings against another. This is also what happened in Nazi Germany against the Jews and in Rwanda against the Tutsis and this is the same action that has been happening since the early 1970’s against unborn babies.

It is “legal” in this country to discriminate against an unborn baby and withhold the basic civil right to life, treating the baby as something less than fully human. Whether living inside or outside of the mother’s womb, a baby is a human person. Even so, a cultural and societal mindset currently exists that trumps the natural law of the dignity of every human person. Barbaric acts of torture and murder are committed at the whim of one person against another, and what could be more appalling or unnatural than for a mother to commit this act against her own child? It contradicts the very nature of motherhood in which a mother would do anything to protect or save her child from danger.

Someday, people will look back at this time period and will be appalled that something like this was ever tolerated. During the 1960’s, it took great courage by whites and blacks alike to break the societal mindset and fight for the civil rights of the black people. It will take great courage now to break the current cultural mindset and fight for the civil rights of the unborn. The intense division in this country will continue until the consciences of more people are finally opened to the reality of abortion and they unite to reverse what is merely  “legal” in a fight for what is right.
