    Relevant for All Christians

    In his latest book, Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household since 1980, presents a collection of teachings given at Catholic charismatic renewal conferences and relevant to all Christians. The first chapter deals with conversion, contrasting the audience for conversion by Jesus and by the apostles. Jesus preached to the unconverted, and the apostles to those who had “entered the kingdom” but were in need of a second conversion. Cantalamessa explains that the conversion in the gospels was a conversion from works to faith, and the second conversion was from faith alone to faith that expresses itself in works. A chapter on eternity opens with Matthew 11: 29-30 in which Jesus promises rest to those who labor and are burdened and speaks of his yoke as easy and his burden light. Cantalamessa points out that Jesus invites “all,” to come, promises to heal all, conditions the promise on taking up the yoke, and assures a reward of rest. The paradox, Cantalamessa explains, is that as we accept God’s will and take up our cross “weariness becomes refreshment, the yoke becomes ease, the burden becomes rest.” Cantalamessa continues to develop the theme of eternity with scripture passages promising living water and living bread, forgiving sins vs. saying “rise and walk,” and the trade-off for a man who gains the whole world and forfeits his life. It’s all about eternity, he writes, suggesting that we need to re-focus on the four last things: death, judgment, hell, and heaven. He characterizes these four as “both the beginning and the ultimate forms of eternity.” This brief overview of one main topic is designed to reveal Sober Intoxication of the Spirit, Part Two as a serious work on living as true Christians looking forward to eternal joy and measuring any present sacrifices against that potential.
