Sermon on the 21th Sunday after Pentecost [2012]

My Beloved,

When we believe in words, we believe and in people. For that people are like their words. But when people are another than words, then begin the perverse game of imposture.

And today’s Evangel [Lk. 8, 5-15] speaks us about word as about seed. And the word of God, the seed of life of grace, is preached by Lord as plant with deep roots, for that to emphasize the fact that spiritual life is the foundation of our existence.

With other words, only when we are filled with God’s truths we are vertical. We are truly live.

For that the life, from the perspective of God, means ontological perfection in communion with God.

And the seriousness that God demands of us at the level of language is a soteriological imperative. For that we must be one with what we are.

This explains why we confess our sins with the word along with the deed. For that the words, then when not represent our interior reality are an illusory impartation of truths.

And communion cannot be than on the basis of truths! Of personal truths…

Therefore in the verse 15, the word of the truth must be kept, kept with strength, and accomplished with patience for to bear fruit in us.

For spiritual growth is based on choice, on tenacity but, primarily, on cooperation with God. But all this wonderful development of our person, for that is organic, makes us to know our spiritualization step by step.

And when we talk about holiness, we talk about all this route interior conscious, about the advancement in the experience of God, about something deeply personal but and communautaire in the same time.

For all what we tighten with God, into patience, we give through our mode of being and of manifest.

And therefore, everything what we give, we give from us and not the things from our outside. For that almsgiving is born inside us, is a dedication from the heart, and not only something to eat or to wear.

And it starts from the meeting with God. From where starts and the words but, also, the good choices.

Thus we see the crucial importance of the meeting with God and of the obedience to His word. For that in front of Him we discover us the verticality and the internal coherency.

We find that we must to stake on words, on all what means the coming into contact with people, because only so we arrive to themselves.

And it’s Orthodoxy: the relation and the remaining in the relation for eternity!

At the opposite pole, the Postmodernity means fleeting relations and the domination of the aesthetic, of the empty form.

And if the relation (as friendship, love, admiration) is temporary and matters more as seems to be a person and not how is at fact, than we run after illusion of the seen, that and it is passing.

And today we talk about visual obsessions and outbid them because we are not interested the reality. Reality that keeps the relation and person.

For that than when we return to the person, we see that we have many things in common each with other. But when we keep the distance to others we enter on the territory of the fantasies about them.

So the Parable of the Sower talks us about the real relations, which are full of truth and grace. For all what is beautiful is and true, because the beauty is a spiritual reality and not cosmetic one.

So, God fills us with His beauty! With the beauty that comes from fulfillment of His commandments. Amen!
