Going down

Scandal of Agape. It goes down… However one is always waiting for it 'rising' in glory. Christ warned his disciples of the scandal by revealing at the same time the deep sense of Passion. There is a very strong bond between Christian mystic and Kenosis. This one means the 'going down' as a fundamental dynamics of an 'ascent'. Can it be different in front of the mystery of Christ who ruins himself in death before resurrecting? The mystery of Kenosis is identically the mystery of Agape. Agape makes you die with Christ. Agape makes you raise from the death with him. The mystical experience is communion with this mystery in the extreme depth of yourself.

Kenosis remains a
scandalously incomprehensible mystery without this other mystery which is Agape. The fall and the descent are not for a nirvana but for a dramatic participation in the mystery of the crucified Christ. Our God who is identified with Agape has to go down. He goes absolutely down in Jesus. The great understanding takes place through the Cross, crisis and criterion of an authentic Christian mystic. In mystical solidarity with Christ, through his painful and glorious mystery, opens the divine way par excellence, the way of Kenosis. This scandalous Cross is at the disproportion of love. Even for God the painful mystery seems to be the only possibility to make up Agape. Isn't it the ridiculous weakness of an immolated Lamb which carries all the sin of the world? At the same time it brings, Passover Lamb, all his possible resurrection.

At the time of the ultimate cosmic assessment, what will remain
definitively of the human great adventure through space and time? Where will you find the absolute understanding? Which values, which creations, which assets, will have enough weight to cross eternity? At the utter amazement of all, it will be found on the bottom of the divine descent, in the hollows of Kenosis. I was hungry. I was thirsty. I was sick. I was in prison. I was in the distress… You came. You shared. You relieved. There was born Agape for eternity.

The painful mystery is really a mystery. It can become extremely invading in the space of an existence. However it is identified primarily with the sacral distance. It is inaccessible. It is impossible to circumvent. It causes fear and respect. It is inexpressible. It is incommunicable. It culminates in silence. One can only speak 'around' it. From the human side on, this mystery is obscure enigma. In the faith, it remains always enigma, but its darkness is irradiated by a quiet clearness. Something like a distant proximity. That one of Christ on the cross. Inseparable from the sin of the world, its trans-historic root, the deep wound at the side of the world shouts its gaping and its transcendence. This word Incapable to buckle itself on his pagan euphoria and forced open on Redemption.
