Example text

Gregory represented the contemplative journey in terms of stages and ascent but, in contrast to Origen, the journey was towards darkness rather than light. 2006 10:32am Moses’ experiences in the Book of Exodus. Here the metaphor is the ascent of Mount Sinai as Moses enters into ever deeper clouds of darkness in his encounter with God. Because of Gregory of Nyssa’s ‘‘apophatic’’ understanding of the climax of the contemplative ascent as deep darkness in which God is experienced but never finally known, the spiritual journey is a never-ending progress towards perfection in which we strive ever more to be perfect but never conclusively arrive.

2006 10:32am in monastic commentaries such as that by the twelfth-century Cistercian, Bernard of Clairvaux, Steps of Humility and Pride. 21 Although the classic metaphor of ‘‘ascent’’ retains a certain value in emphasizing a continuous journey rather than a succession of disconnected experiences, it also suggests a separation of the material world from a truly spiritual existence. There are also some more general problems about the notion of successive stages. First, what is represented by the distinct stages (purgation/repentance, illumination/enlargement of vision, and union with God) are likely to be present in different proportions at all points of the spiritual journey.

2006 10:32am teachings and while the Gospel of John is based on an understanding of the pre-existent Word of God, the spirituality of the Pauline letters focuses on the Jesus of the resurrection, the risen Christ who is also the crucified Jesus. Thus the key to Pauline thinking is God’s act of raising the crucified Jesus from the dead as the beginning of a new creation and as the hope of a transformed humanity (for example, Rom 8, 29; 1 Cor 15, 20; 2 Cor 5, 17). Thus, the status and future of humankind, as an act of divine creation, implies that ‘‘salvation’’ is God’s act alone and that the Christian life is fundamentally a matter of receiving this gift.
