NECESSARY REPETITION
Spiritual teachers tend to repeat themselves, and to
repeat other teachers. Maybe there really aren’t that many
different truths to tell. Just a lot of slow, sleepy human
beings—like us—who need to hear the basics over and
over. Consider today’s readings.
People complain that God isn’t “fair,” and Ezekiel answers that God is more than fair. People choose their own
fates, and people can change. Even evildoers can turn, do
right, and live. “Actions speak louder than words.” A
fresh new insight? Hardly.
Paul tells the Philippians he would truly be
encouraged if those who claimed to be believers would, in
fact, look to others’ interests and not their own. “The
proof of the pudding is in the eating.” A novel idea? I
don’t think so.
In Jesus’ story of the farmer and his sons, everyone
knows the one who said he wouldn’t work—but did—is
way ahead of the one who said he would work, but didn’t.
“Talk is cheap.” Heard that before?

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Over time, the severe form of one-chance penance
collapsed under lack of enthusiasm for its burdens and
its public nature. As ordinary Christians prayed for the
great sinners, it must have occurred to them that they
were sinners no less, and they required a form of penance
also. The Irish came to the rescue, never having had a
public form of penance, but inventing a system called
“tariff penance,” which was completely private, available
to everyone, and wildly popular. After a detailed confession, priest and penitent would lie on the floor before the
altar and recite a number of psalms. The priest then pronounced a judgment, a tariff, giving a task or a prayer to
complete before reconciliation.
The surviving guidebooks for confessors make for hairraising reading as the sins of which the Irish people were
supposedly capable were catalogued and keyed to penances. Cattle or sheep rustling might require stripping
down to sing psalms in an icy brook, for example, or
adultery could be the occasion for rolling in a thicket of
thorns. All of this might have stayed in Ireland had not
the monks had a desire to travel, blazing across Europe
with their theology and their rituals, and their sense that
Christians needed strong medicine for sin and the assurance of God’s forgiveness.

Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible;

REPETICIÓN NECESARIA
Los maestros espirituales tienen la tendencia a
repetir lo mismo, y de repetir lo que otros maestros
enseñan. Tal vez es porque no hay muchas verdades
diferentes. Sólo muchos seres humanos, medios dormidos y perezosos – igual que nosotros– que necesitan escuchar las verdades básicas una y otra vez.
Considera las lecturas de hoy.
La gente se queja de que Dios no es “justo”, y
Ezequiel contesta que Dios es más que justo. La gente escoge su destino y la gente puede cambiar. Hasta
los malvados pueden cambiar, hacer el bien y vivir
para siempre. “Las acciones hablan más claramente
que las palabras”. ¿Una idea nueva? Seguro que no.
Pablo les dice a los filipenses que se sentiría muy
complacido si los que se dicen ser creyentes buscaran
los intereses de los demás y no los propios. “La prueba está en la realidad”. ¿Una idea nueva? No lo creo.
En la historia que Jesús cuenta sobre el viñador y
sus hijos, todos sabemos que el que dijo que no trabajaría – pero lo hizo– es más virtuoso que el que dijo
que trabajaría, pero no lo hizo. “Perro que ladra no
muerde” ¿Has escuchado eso antes?

LO IMPOSIBLE
Empieza a hacer lo que es necesario, luego lo que es
posible, de pronto estarás haciendo lo que es imposible.
—San Francisco de Asís
