Captured By Mystery

O Magnum Mysterium, by T. L. de Victoria (1549–1611)

Music

~ ITEM: O Magnum Mysterium – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

~ ITEM: Another Version– Poulenc’s ‘O Magnum Mysterium’

~ TEH YOUNGER BINKS was in a wishy-washy Untied Church as a young teen, trying– of all things– to sing tenor in a church-choir. It was full of university music students.. and me. I learned to read music a little, sing next to a guy who could actually sing well, listen to perplexingly Jesus-Lite liberal sermons. ZzZzzz.

Yet, it was the music that captured me, especially since we had a good choir director, and got to practice for two hours each week. The piece that made up for all the flaccid preaching was “O Magnum Mysterium” (O Great Mystery), a responsorial chant from the old Catholic Matins (Morning Prayer) of Christmas that has been used by composers for years unto the current day.

O magnum mysterium et admirabile sacramentum
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum
jacentem in praesepio.

Beata virgo cujus viscera
meruerunt portare Dominum Christum.

Alleluia.

Or in the Anglo-Franco-German-Greco-Latin mishmash that is English,

O mighty mystery and wonderful sacrament
that animals see the infant Lord
lying in a manger.

Blessed is the virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear the Lord Christ.

Alleluia.

At the time I wasn’t a big Latin-reader, but it was a Christmas piece, and the words were not inscrutable, and the music was.. unspeakably beautiful. My young and unhappy soul was pierced by glorious pain, transcendant longing, uplifting beauty. It was a moment of direct encounter with God, a spotlight into my darkness, teenage uncertainty, and seeking truth, beauty, and goodness.

One sign of a real church IMHO is that it appeals to all parts of human nature– sight, sound, smell, thought, feeling, body postures. Old-style Eastern Orthodoxy, pre-Vatican II Rome “have it”, when done right.

Beauty, truth, music, matter itself elevated to the service of almighty God– it’s countless opportunities to be touched and uplifted and captured by holiness and transcendant love. Kinda like a reverse mine-field.. making it easy for souls to be drawn in, made new, refreshed & transformed. Ugly churches, worship done poorly, flatulent sermons, cruddy folk-music, those effing felt banners, pedestrian and deliberate ugliness– all seem a deliberate attempt to stifle and defy excellence, and set up a barrier and disconnect between the best things and God. Instead of exalting our hearts unto higher things, God is almost made boring.

Now More About Me

Victoria’s 400 year-old choir-piece in an otherwise Gospel-deprived setting was part of my eventual return to God, though the next 7 years were turbulent, and I nearly was lost in my own version of Mordor.

However, when I later trained to preach, to celebrate worship services & sing, to improve church furnishings, to encourage choirs, to have people give memorials in the form of stained glass, or vestments & church-hangings, or furniture, it was never ‘in the latest fashion’ (which for most moderniac churches means 1965-1975), but the highest and best possible. Sadly, some clergy ‘make their mark’ rather in the fashion of a cat on furniture.

Thanks to that long-ago choir-director, the choir, to the ancient monks who composed those Matins antiphons, and to dear old T. L. de Victoria and his God-given and God-blessed talent. ~


12 DAYS Of Christmas

~ ITEM: A word on Terry Mattingly’s Christmas ‘rant’; A merry, merry 12th day of Christmas to one and all

EVEN FR. BINKS OCCASIONALLY scolded from the pulpit about the uber-suckitude of commercialized Christmas. Ever since the Victorians invented much of what we consider ‘normal Christmas’, and the commercialism that went with it, the problem of Santa versus Jesus or greed versus peace is much with us.

But part of the real problem is the laziness and cultural inertia of Christians and the church in creatively redeeming, asserting, and rightly living the Advent & Christmas season– plus the rightful 12 Days of Christmas.. you know, now renamed as the first third of Boxing Month. We Westerners are all over-focussed on using our pre-Christmas time to stress-up, over-shop & spend, travel, and seek a perfect Christmas– whatever that would look like anyway, and however particular and peculiar and relatively recent our ‘normal’ might be.

Anyhow, read Mattingly’s piece, since he’s a much better writer than this elf.

The Take-Away?

Christians– we gots real work to do, and the first part of that is to admit part of the fault is ours, that we are to be salt & light in the world, not bland and dim. Firsts first: Jesus. Seconds second: celebrating him, and showing him forth to the world. Good garnish: feasting, rejoicing, singing, gathering. We already have a huge start in the big messy festival of selling and muchness and falalalalala that is our current Ubermuchmas.

Kvetching or giving in are non-starters. ~


The Anglican Wars, Redux

~ ITEM: Adam Smith Institute Blog, Jan.2 2011 – European nations begin seizing private pensions

~ WHEN FIGURING OUT what the bad guys might get up to, never assume that they are going to obey civilized rules. Back in my days as an Anglican pundit, I foolishly thought the bad Canadian Anglican bishops (like the eternal tormentor of the flock in New Westminster) would quickly run out of money and have to surrender.

Silly me: that was presuming they wouldn’t spend every last cent of investments, keep the lawyers beating up their ‘dissidents’ for every dollar, and when funds dried up, start selling real estate, ‘surplus’ churches, historic buildings, rectories, land, episcopal mansions, whatever it took to keep the tottery aging & demographically collapsing institution going, and liberal pew-emptiers in power.

Short-sighted? Spendthrifty? Wasteful? Using the furniture & walls for firewood? Burning the house down to stay warm? Sure: but smug busy-body liberals gotta do what they gotta do, and since they emptied the churches with no planning, an empty social gospel, radical politics and 40+ years of Anything But Jesus, there’s no flocking of young people or seeking souls pouring through the doors to join the NDP at ‘prayer’.

As It Is On Earth

Watch for this in the secular realm as well: Adam Smith Institute Blog, Jan.2 2011 – European nations begin seizing private pensions.

“Private” pensions– that is until a desperate overspent EU or American government sees our hard-won retirement money sitting there “just doing nothing”, and passes a law to sieze whatever coin it can scrabble together to pay the debts & giant social-welfare costs & bad investments, until the next crisis hits. Never mind that this will mean impoverised retirees in 30 years or so in need of a (by then brutally-slashed) welfare and pension budget– that’s a zillion years and 5 or 6 governments away in political time.

Tick tick tick. Boom. ~


Geeking Out At The Fillums

~ ITEM: We Have Met The Enemy and He Is ‘Them’

TRON: LEGACY Official Trailer

~ FOR WE UBER-NERDS OF A CERTAIN AGE, the advent of the movie Tron in 1982 was an eye-blasting revelation of computer graphics, plot, acting, and things never seen before. I bought the recent ‘Ultimate Platinum Collector’s’ Version, and re-enjoyed it all to bits– and noted (anew) the clear philosophical and religious themes of the show. These days, it’s anything but (good & real) Christianity in films: here, we’re dealing with a creator entering the world he made, and that world rebelling against him.

Very Christmassy, in a way (John 1:9-12):

“That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name”

I’m not generally a fan of movie-sequels, minus Aliens and a few others, and so when I saw trailers for Tron: Legacy (T:L), I feared the very worst. Special effects extremity, no plot, please give us money.

Spoilers Follow

The Binks & Binklings saw it the other day, and I’d consider T:L a legitimate sequel, and a continued reflection on the original theme. This time (and relevantly so) the Tron-world has been captivated by a utopian leader, who has almost cleansed that world of all ‘imperfections’.

In terms of God-stuff, where Tron was about the Incarnation, T:L is about the modern utopian movement, and the rebellion against God that is all modern utopianisms, from the French Revolution, through the 20th century of blood that is left-wingism like Communism & Nazism, through to political forms of domination such as progressivism, eugenics, politcal correctness, and intellectual control like the Frankfurt School & related intellectual evils of the current moment. The militant forms were like cancer within civilization; the political forms more like viruses or opportunistic infections.

The visual power & innovations in special effects in T:L are worth the price of a ticket; the faithfulness to the original vision, ditto; the good acting & plot & music make this one great movie. If you live near a cineplex with Digital dolby/ big screen, or IMAX, go see it ASAP. When it Blu-rays or DVDs, buy it, and enjoy.

Oh, and don’t worry– this is not a high-speed Transformers-style Michael Bay visual beat-down: there’s lots of quieter moments mixed in with the drama and special effects.. i.e., it’s a real movie, not a digitized ~

~ ITEM: Students in Kent university sit-in write to Archbishop

~ ITEM: California Republican touts legislation banning public pension bailouts

~ TEH PROPHET BINKS recently warned about 2011. Over Christmas, Binks-brother (now in the Ottawa Auditor-General’s office) & Binks had a long & loud ranty chat. His view is that the real melt-down in The Untied States Of Obamistan is already beginning, not only via clear signs like real estate, unemployment, and the U.S. dollar, but the impending bankruptcy of states.

When the states fail, then real-world trouble starts for folks looking for– say– government pay-cheques, public services, police, fire, hospital, welfare, and all the rest. I`m guessing it starts with California… Illinois.. and heaven help us if we get a terror-attack or disaster to accelerate matters.

When one state goes, the rest get tottery. Shall we suppose the already bankrupted Federal government .. or other states, facing their own troubles.. or perhaps creditors like China shall come to the rescue? Whether 14 or 200 trillion in debt in the U.S., the time of paying the piper has come for the West– of all those endless freebies, benefits, goodies, free rides, and ballouts.

Yes, it sucks to realize that the Boomers will– in passing on– leave a poorer, sicker, disillusioned world behind them. It was one hell of a party, while it lasted. Perhaps that`s part of the bitterness and confusion we see in the reaction of French & British students protesting– higher retirement ages in one case, and lower tuition subsidies on the other.

WakeUp, Smell The Empty Cup

This is how the reality breaks in, since our leaders generally won`t tell us too much hard economic truth, or that we must needs save and be frugal and less greedy and lower our expectations to affordable levels. Bad for big-gov taxes, endless credit, consumerism, and easy promises of goodies for everyone, that.

Reality can be very unpleasant, and heaven on earth is a delusion and temptation. We will all face choices in the next 12 to 24 months about credit, spending, rising food-prices, jobs, schooling, savings, and the kind of life we want for ourselves and future generations. The perfect storm of selfish spending-sprees and government-sponsored paradise is dying– the question is now how shall we proceed: deeper into the abyss, or back to an affordable kind of life, to rebuild things after a time of suffering, some financial chaos, and reckoning the costs of our previous sins and choices.

The other factor is that our insane mass-immigration schemes have not replaced the missing children of 1965 to 2011: we have some professionals and workers, but a lot of social service and pension draining. Plus, the small crop of post-boomer kids (45 and under) kids are not going to or be able to foot the bill for the next 30 years of high-end social services. Choices are before us.

Happy New Year 2011! ~


UpsideDownistan

~ ITEM: Brits dodge Christmas bullet — Coming soon to a big city near you

~ ITEM: Manhattan, NY — At Least 10 local Synagogues Threatened in Bomb Warning

~ ITEM: 45 dead in attack by Pakistan’s first-ever female suicide bomber

~ WE ORDINARILY LOOK AT THE STUFF AROUND US in the West as ‘life’, the stuff people built, pretty or ugly or monumental or otherwise. Yet there are orcs amongst us who invert that ordinary attitude and see potential targets. It’s like having evil x-ray glasses (you know, the ones in the old comic books that promised peeking at nekkid wimmins), where light becomes dark, good evil, bitter sweet.

It’s the mindset of the radical militant– and in the West these days, of the militant Islamofascist who divides the world into the Camp of Islam, and the Camp Of War. Or in Tolkien’s legendary terms, the World of Free People versus the Reign of Sauron.

It takes flipping an ugly switch in your head to imagine people and buildings and crowds and opportunities as targets. Yet such people walk amongst us, are linked up on the internet, are gathering in their little groups, and plotting wreck, wrack, and ruin as sacrifices unto their bloodthirsty deity.

The Orc Mindset

After all, people were plotting and observing “The Target” years before the two attacks on the Manhattan Twin Towers in 1993 and 2001. Even though we don’t think like this, others have major targets scoped out in major Western cities, however amatuer their attampts and plans may be, or unlikely their general chances of success.

For our own safety, we really need to cultivate a bit of a wary mindset, because this is war. Especially in cities with symbolic value or however small populations of militants, to ask– as any sheepdog should– “How should I protect myself and others here, if an attack were underway?” Or for those in fire, police, or military service, “How best protect our communities, ourselves and these buildings and the people in them from attack?”

May God and our sheepdogs be vigilant and keep us safe in 2011, even as enemies of the West dream of death. ~
