MUSINGS
Orthodox Metropolitan bishop, Ignatius of Latakia, stated in 1968 that ‘without the Holy Spirit, God is distant, Christ is merely an historical figure, the Gospel is a dead letter, the Church is just an organisation, authority is domination, mission is propaganda, liturgy is only nostalgia and the work of Christians is slave labour.  But with the Holy Spirit, Christ is risen and present, the Gospel is a living force, the Church is a communion in the life of the Trinity, authority is a service that sets people free, mission is Pentecost, the liturgy is memory and anticipation, and the labour of Christians is divinised’

MUSINGS
In his beautiful poem, An Chéad Aoine (‘The First Friday’), Seán Ó Leocháin reflects on the monthly ritual of local priest bringing ‘the food of life’ to the poet’s father.  What strikes him most, however, is not the ritual itself, but the manner in which Christ arrives (‘that Christ would come in a second-hand car that the priest had bought from a man in Roscommon’).  Isn’t is so often the case that Christ comes, in that other poet, Patrick Kavanagh’s words, ‘where life pours ordinary plenty’?
