Venite a vedere - Communion and LiberationCommunion and Liberation is an ecclesial movement whose purpose is the education to Christian maturity of its adherents and collaboration in the mission of the Church in all the spheres of contemporary life.
First, Paulos commonly known as Paul was a Rabbi in the first century and a Pharisee; The title of Rabbi and Pharisee is usually synonymous at least for our purpose of study.
It synthesizes the conviction that the Christian event, lived in communion, is the foundation of the authentic liberation of man. The problem with most Christian denominations is that they pick and choose what suits them and most of them walk contrary to G-d and His ways. By walking contrary to G-d and not obeying His commandments, and also serving other gods in such things as Easter, Lent, Christmas and other Christian unclean days, which are festivals of false gods foreign to YHWH and at the same time saying"I have peace"is a self created deception.
This is the situation Rabbi Paulos finds himself in amongst the people of Galut (dispersion) where he has to deal with a lot of these kinds of issues or how to conduct the business of G-d with equity without putting people out. Father Giussani had the peculiar genius for cutting through all of the "extras" and going straight to the heart of Christianity -- he tirelessly proposed Jesus Christ (much as our current Pope, Benedict XVI does). What is new about CL is not so much a particular theology, but a way of living out Christianity that is vital, vibrant, and vivifying. It involves being able to see our Lord, beloved and adored, in the bonds of friendship that exist between and among ordinary, sometimes uninspiring, Christians. What Father Giussani both proposed and also demonstrated in reality is that Christ is not only present as Bread and Wine in the Eucharist, he is also present in the unity that exists in his people -- the Body of Christ. The law of the Incarnation always works this way -- Christ comes to me and shows me the whole, in all its universality, through particular circumstances.I would be remiss if I didn't mention Father Vincent.
In all honesty there can be no genuine freedom if we do not have rules to show us how we are to live in our day to day lives. G-d gave us these instructions and we have to decide wisely how to be part of His kingdom community.   After throwing away our “yoke of slavery” as Rabbi Paulos tells us we now have two choices according to Jewish tradition in which Rabbi Paulos was brought up and he accepted them all and never rejected them contrary to popular opinion. And then on the next page: Yet carrying out this correct choice demands a clear awareness of the relationship with Christ, of the relationship with destiny.


Man finds his dignity in the choice of what he values most in life and from which he expects the greatest satisfaction. This is how many old and modern churches in the world have read this verse and decided to use Rabbi Paulos as judge and jury to reject the law of G-d!!! And the heart is not "what I like" or "what I want" -- it's the constant thirst for what I'm made for, my destiny, Christ.
It is the solution of a lonely humanity, a humanity that has ceased to listen to the voice that calls each of us by name, a humanity without Christ.
Memory - the greatest Christian word I know - that makes presentsomething that happened long ago.
In his daughter [Emmanuel Mounier'sdaughter, Francoise with micro-encephalitis], in the circumstance thateveryone considered to be misfortune, a sign emerged that forced oneto think of the present Mystery of Christ.This is memory. May this start to become normal among us, may it be asign that forces us to think of the Mystery of Christ as present!
The Jewish people were from that time forward to remain in spiritual blindness until the return of the Messiah but this does not mean as many Christians think that the Jews are no longer saved and are going to the lake of sulphur   Pastors usually take this out of context by denying the Torah of Moses and telling people that you do not have to be circumcised. You will not find Matthew, Mark, Luke or John ever saying any such things therefore this puts you and anyone else on very dangerous grounds because now you are under the curse until you start to obey the Torah.
Christians cannot be in the Abrahamic Covenant, while living without being circumcised as this is a Covenant requirement and not a salvation issue. The term circumcision was not so much the physical cutting of the foreskin but how to convert a gentile into Judaism with all the other legal rulings to be applicable under rabbinic supervision.
So circumcision is not what most think here but was a loaded term to mean how one converts into Judaism. No, the only one who knows it and gives it as a gift is Christ [points again to the crucifix]. In effect there are many benefits in being circumcised such as sixty-five percent less chance of acquiring aids and being protected from many sexual diseases however this is to complete all righteousness and must be done as stated earlier to be part of the Abrahamic Covenant.


To be specific: it was the sin of pride: I already knew how Christ came to me, I already knew what Christ wanted of me, I already had a history of working out my Christianity on my own and I didn't want anyone to tell me that that history was limited and starved for oxygen because I knew it was beautiful, dammit! To use the CL way of characterizing this attitude, I was reducing the Mystery to my own measure, insisting on making the decisions about how and where and when Christ had something to say to me. What is amazing to me is that I could come to these conclusions based on piety, how I was reading Fr. But what I was hung up on was the scandal of the appearance of the local Church -- that Christ could manifest himself in these particular people, with all their irritating and unpleasant humanity (sorry, my friends), was just too much for me to digest. How hard it is to understand this distinction until you've lived through the mistake of confusing them (and the consequences of this mistake -- which are loneliness and bitterness). But it is not my life that I seem compelled to organize and control, in any case (that's still something I contemplate on the level of "impossible dream") -- it's the way that Christ chooses to show himself to me in my surroundings and in the community he's given me. The purists known as the Essenes moved out near to the Dead Sea and separated themselves completely wanting nothing to do with any of the other Jewish sects, while the other sects heavily debated the Torah, its laws and how best to keep them. Some Christian authors wrote and vilified the Jews especially the renaissance such as the German theologian Luther who advocated burning their synagogues and burning their books. However Rabbi Paulos wrote effectively saying no you do not need to obey the thousands of laws to obtain salvation. How hard it is to understand this distinction until you've lived through the mistake of confusing them (and the consequences of this mistake -- which are loneliness and bitterness). If there were not these moments, we would find answers, explanations, and interpretations to avoid being struck by anything.
