Meditation Seeking Understanding ~ Liturgy


These pages are meditations on the mysteries of the creation, the incarnation, and the redemption. They explore the Christian understanding that all men and women are consubstantial in one and the same human nature, and are consubstantial with Jesus Christ as to his humanity. The meditations are based on a layman's reading of the Sacred Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Theology of the Body as they pertain to the egalitarian complementarity of man and woman, which transcends the patriarchal binary of mutually exclusive male-female opposites. This understanding of the complementary equality of man and woman applies to all the sacraments, sheds light on the great nuptial mystery of Christ and the Church, and would seem to support the ordination of women to the ministerial priesthood and the episcopate.


From the Creation to the Ascension ~ Male and Female

Working Draft - 5 May 2016

MERCY-9BB.00.jpg
Ascension of the Lord

The Ascension of Christ is the ascension of human nature, male and female
La Ascensión de Cristo es la ascensión de la naturaleza humana, masculina y femenina
L'Ascensione di Cristo è l'ascensione della natura umana, maschile e femminile
L'Ascension du Christ est l'ascension de la nature humaine, mâle et femelle
A Ascensão de Cristo é a ascensão da natureza humana, do sexo masculino e feminino
Die Himmelfahrt Christi ist der Aufstieg der menschlichen Natur, männlich und weiblich
Wniebowstapienie Chrystusa jest wniebowstapienie ludzkiej natury meskiej i zenskiej


PRAELUDIUM 1 - Mystery of the Creation

All human beings, male and female, are body-souls in the same flesh.

PRAELUDIUM 2 - Mystery of the Ascension

The ascension of Christ is the ascension of flesh, male and female.

PRAELUDIUM 3 - Mystery of the Assumption

The assumption of Mary is the assumption of flesh, male and female.


CREATION, ORIGINAL SIN, PATRIARCHALISM ...

MERCY-9BB-1.jpg

PATRIARCHALISM is the first and most pervasive
consequence of ORIGINAL SIN

INCARNATION, REDEMPTION, ASCENSION ...

MERCY-9BB-2-000 MERCY-9B-2-00 MERCY-9B-2-02 MERCY-9.3.2 MERCY-9.3.2.5 MERCY-9.3.3 MERCY-9.3.3.1 MERCY-9.3.3.5 MERCY-9.3.4AAA MERCY-9.3.5BB MERCY-9.3.5.5 MERCY-9.3.6 MERCY-9.3.6AA MERCY-9.3.6.5 MERCY-9.3.6.6 MERCY-9.3.6.6BB MERCY-9.3.6.7 MERCY-9.3.7B MERCY-9.3.7.5 MERCY-9B-2-1 MERCY-9B-2-2 MERCY-9B-2-3 MERCY-9.3.8 MERCY-9.3.9

Note the feminine imagery of the REDEMPTION in John 19:34...
blood and water flowed from his side when he was pierced,
as happens during childbirth, and the Church was born!
Wonder if St. Paul considered this when he wrote
Galatians 3:28, Ephesians 5:32...

The REDEMPTION restores the ORIGINAL COMMUNION
of MAN and WOMAN in a NEW CREATION

2000 YEARS OF CHRIST-CHURCH MARRIAGE ...

The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!”
And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”
~ 1 Corinthians 12:21

In 2016 AD, a patriarchal FAMILY is a dysfunctional FAMILY
and a patriarchal CHURCH is a dysfunctional CHURCH

All ministries, ordained and unordained, should be gift-based, not gender-based

COLLOQUIUM 1 - Egalitarian Complementarity of Man and Woman

MERCY-9BB-C1.jpg

Note: TOB = Theology of the Body, TOB Cross by Timothy Schmalz

The patriarchal sex/gender binary is NOT natural law

COLLOQUIUM 2 - Egalitarian Complementarity of Christ and the Church

MERCY-9BB-C2.jpg

"There are many parts, but one body." ~ 1 Corinthians 12:20

"This is a deep mystery, and an inexhaustible subject of meditation, that the salvation of many depends on the prayers and voluntary penances which the members of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ offer for this intention and on the cooperation of pastors of souls and of the faithful, especially of fathers and mothers of families, a cooperation which they must offer to our Divine Savior as though they were His associates."
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi, 1943 AD

The patriarchal family is NOT natural law
The patriarchal priesthood is NOT divine law

COLLOQUIUM 3 - Egalitarian Complementarity in the Church Hierarchy

MERCY-9BB-C3.jpg

PRAYER

"Good God, source of freedom who shows us the path of unconditional love without limits, grant us the gift to recognize, accept and value women's priesthood.

Grant that the Magisterium of the Church allow women to preach and proclaim the Word of God from the ambo and that they be able to break and share the bread of the Eucharist and administer the appropriate sacraments.

Bless the Catholic Church that it may soon make women's ordination possible, that they might put all their gifts and their human and spiritual wealth at the service of the Community.

That the joy, peace and faithfulness of Christ's love towards women help us listen to, welcome and fearlessly express what the Spirit inspires in our hearts today, encouraging all, especially women, to listen to their own vocation and be able to generously assume new responsibility within the Church for the good of everyone. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen."

~ Sr. Montserrat Unterlöhner, OSB

"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ...
This is a profound mystery—
but I am talking about Christ and the church..."
