Rev. Hieromonk CALINIC ( BERGER ) : ” THE CONQUEROR OF DEATH „

Iunie 6, 2007 at 12:20 am

Before the spectacular miracle of the resurrection of Lazarus, a man become a four-day stinking corpse, Jesus wept. Patristic writers, such as St. Cyril of Alexandria, point out that He wept as a man – to show that He was truly human – but it could also be said that He wept as God.

God did not create death. Death is not what was meant to be. Man chose death for himself when he decided to seek life and ultimate meaning in created, earthly things, taking them as his goal and source, instead of a means to his Goal and Source of life. Because of this, death has become the ultimate fundamental of human existence. All we do, all of our hard work, all the talents we labor so hard to acquire, all achievements, ranks and goals, are made vanity by death. All is lost in death. Death is the limit, the boundary, of human life.

It is for this reason that monastiteacher. God’s decrees are irreversible, and death is the great didactic given to us to show us that this world is not the source of our life and meaning. God is the source of our life and meaning. It could even be said that the way to judge the depth or seriousness of a philosophy is to examine its treatment of death. Does death have meaning, or destroy all meaning?Christianity confronts death directly and does not „sugar-coat“ it -in other words, we do not say that death is „natural,“ or just another of life’s passages. True, it is one of life’s passages, but it is not „natural.“ Christianity calls death what it is: a tragedy, a scandal and an outrage. How could it be otherwise? No matter>>>>>>

În anii şaizeci şi şaptezeci ai veacului al XX-lea în cultura americană a intervenit o schimbare privind modul de înţelegere a căii prin care s-a alcătuit şi se alcătuieşte naţiunea americană.Conceptul „furnalului“ american (după care toţi cei veniţi în Lumea Nouă s-ar contopi într-o nouă entitate) a fost înlocuit cu o mult mai convingatoare şi înţeleaptă concepţie. Această concepţie afirmă că fiecare grup etnic şi-a adus şi îşi aduce contribuţia la a face America mai diversă, mai frumoasă şi mai puternică. >>>>>Alexandru Nemoianu
