THE SYMBOL AND THE EMPTYING OF THE HISTORICAL REAL IN CHRISTIANITY. YOU MUST RETURN TO GOSPEL OF BANQUETS, WHAT IN THE BIOGRAPHY ROLE OF FEEDS …

.

One of the strategies used - but I would almost dare to say the new and unique homiletical formula to explain the Gospel - is the use of the "symbol" ... everything is reduced to a symbol. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a symbol, his ascension to heaven is a symbol, Pentecost is a symbol… everything is a symbol.

Claudio Costa from The Gospel of banquets
a book on the homiletics problem, by Claudio Dalla Costa.

What the lay faithful must think when he hears the celebrant define it as the Resurrection, the Ascension, Pentecost, they are only symbols, or to put it better in the words of one of the many preachers: "... we cannot think that after a while Jesus went up to heaven, No. He vaporized, became light ... ascension is a symbol ".

Too bad the screenwriter Steven Spielberg haven't thought of this before genius to stage the farewell and departure of the little alien in the old ET movie; and following this line, the scene of the trip to the sky on flying bicycles could be saved by reducing everything to a "vaporization". But above: pity that the greats of science fiction cinema, as well as such Horror, have not yet discovered the genius of some preachers who with their speeches would do their job as screenwriters better, rather than as ministers responsible for proclaiming the Gospel ...

  1. Rev. Don Ariel,
    I ask for advice. Canonically how a faithful one should behave – unwillingly – he must listen to this kind of homilies or other sociological and political ones that are not very or very crazy? Or he must attend and participate – with great discomfort – to others “Announcements” liturgical? Talk to the celebrant, at the end of the Mass? Report the circumstance to the Bishop? Pray for the priest's repentance?
    Or, simply, change the time of Mass with a different celebrant or attend a different parish?

    It also happens that a priest, however, always strictly faithful to the missal, “forget” the recitation of the Creed, in the embarrassment of the faithful.

  2. Masterful and commendable article by a young philosopher and theologian doctor who writes not only with profound knowledge of the facts, but with respect for the priesthood and priests; a style that should be an example, which should teach many fringes of lay people who often show deep gaps in these two presuppositions: respect for the priesthood and priests, despite our limitations, despite our sins, unfortunately despite the scandals that we often give.
    Thanks, best wishes, and congratulations again for your previous and beautiful article on Gramsci's philosophy.

  3. Gentile Jorge,
    on the one hand she hit the bull's-eye, and on the other hand he touched this old man who could be his grandfather … she dell”83, I of '38 (!?!), and, the numbers are those, but upside down!! And I say he hit the mark because, under the pretext of “symbol” and,above all, with the abuse of “symbol”, that makes it all “symbol”, we are playing the faith, because it's not about the “Symbol-of-faith” but, Alas, of the worldly symbol, the de-constructive and destructive one that makes everything a metaphor, an allegorical fable …
    Bella closed that, after the respect due to the opponent, concludes by stating that, at least, Vattimo, consistently, he was a nihilist.

  4. Excellent school, valiant pupil. A small note.
    He writes: ” Such individuals cannot and should not continue to be or to exercise what they do not believe in;” so far I agree, and then it continues ” and at some point they should go back to being those arms that today agriculture is so lacking, or sociology, or in the context of family and couple psychology which is so much needed ... in short: that they do something else, but not the priests.” I think the invitation is too hasty and not very concrete, and if applied, a harbinger of other failures, People of this kind lack most of the essential qualities to be a man even before being a good priest, skilled worker, good farmhand, esteemed professional; are lacking- I quote in bulk – Balance, consistency, dignity, humility, commitment, service, spirit of sacrifice, discipline, responsibility,and more. Certain, you can, you always have to start over, but making the most of the mistakes made, you have to make sense of your life, mature and grow, to become a capable person, reliable, also excellent, useful in itself, family, The Church, the society.

  5. Speaking of symbols, pol.correct rites and ecological diggers, subservient to ideologies rather than lovers of contemplation.

    “Take away Christianity from the people, close the churches, and in no time at all they will return to worshiping animals” The curate of Ars was right!
    3. Metaphors and paradigms on closed churches, desecrated

    4. From Argentina, the Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolás warns "Some of you will say: "Nothing new says the Lord." I say: Everything is new, because nothing is practiced, it seems that nothing is known about God ". “In those places of the world where my messages were given, seems to have preached in cemeteries, because there was no answer that the Lord wants ".
