Heart of Matter: “Connecting to the Whole”

“When the whole brain is enabling the whole person to connect to the whole environment, catholicity is alive.”

    Truth can only qualify as catholic (be universally inclusive) when it unifies every discipline and religion under a common element that equalizes all and marginalizes none. Catholicity must have as its basis, not a dogmatic, sectarian, or institutional definition, but an organic definition of itself that defines both the universal substance and inter-being nexus of all created form. As per Teilhard’s words, no mind is better positioned to develop same save for one in possession of the Christ mind, one that is individuated, independent, and can see and think in wholes. And more importantly, is prepared to withstand the same skepticism, doubt, ignominy and ridicule as his/her Master.

    I believe that wholeness in Catholic Church is wholeness spreading and growing.

    Love immeasurable invites me to think and feel at one, creature and creator, image desiring to become likeness. I can say, not now, as soon as I do this. Or I know I’m late but I will now; show me what and where!
