1. The awakening of the heart by the fear of God
2. The awakening of the heart by bearing shame in the sacrament of Confession
A. Adam transgressed (looked upon creation instead of the Creator). He was divested of the luminous garment of divine breath.
B. Thus, naked, he hid.
When he is far from God he is in darkness and cannot perceive how far he has fallen (from Grace).
Whoever is proud … cannot love.
This is Luciferic self-divinization.
These notes [this particular session: rather terse; sorry] were taken during the annual Clergy Retreat for the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, February 6-9, 2007. The retreat was led by Archimandrite Zacharias of the Stavropegic Monastery of St John the Baptist in Tolleshunt Knights-by-Maldon, Essex, U.K. These are my notes and were filtered through my poor faculties. Any and all errors theological are mine. Forgive me.
