Messiah rid me of Messiah

Lent 2 – Year B

Peter claims Jesus is Messiah - - - Peter defines limits for Messiah.

One way out of this eternal dilemma is to listen in to a paragraph by Matthew Fox in his now out-of-print book, Wrestling with the Prophets:

- - > It seems to me that religion's future is not in religion as such. Religion has to learn to let go of religion. As Meister Eckhart said in the fourteenth century, "I pray God to rid me of God" in order to rediscover the spirituality that is at the heart of any living, authentic, and healthy religion. Spirituality is the praxis of the heart, the praxis of our living in this world. It means dealing with our inner selves and not just living on the level of our outer selves. < - -
