HALKAN waa mid aad u hadal badan maalmahan ka mid ah haraadiga Catholic ee ku saabsan "qaxootiga" - meelaha jirka ee ilaalinta rabbaaniga ah. Waa wax la fahmi karo, maadaama ay ku jirto sharciga dabiiciga ah si aan rabno noolow, si looga fogaado xanuunka iyo rafaadka. Dareemaha dareemaha ee jidhkeena ayaa muujinaya xaqiiqooyinkan. Weliba waxaa jirta run ka sii sarraysa oo ah in badbaadadeennu ay ina dhaafto Iskutallaabta. Sidan oo kale, xanuunka iyo rafaadku hadda waxay qaadanayaan qiime madaxfurasho ah, ma aha oo kaliya naftayada laakiin kuwa kale marka aynu buuxinno "waxa ka maqan dhibaatooyinka Masiixa aawadiis jidhkiisa, taas oo ah kaniisadda" (Kol 1:24).
In our times, God has provided a ruuxiga ah refuge for believers, and it is the heart, no less, of our Blessed Mother:
Qalbigeyga aan xasilneyn ayaa magangal kuu noqon doona iyo jidka kuugu horseeda xagga Ilaah. - Marwadeenna Faatima, Juun 13, 1917, Muujinta Labada Qalbi ee Waqtiga Casriga ah, www.ewtn.com
Jesus affirmed this again in the approved revelations to the Hungarian, Elizabeth Kindelmann:
Hooyaday waa Markabkii Nuux… - Ololka Jacaylka, bog. 109; Imrimatur ka yimid Archbishop Charles Chaput
At the same time, both Scripture and Sacred Tradition confirm that, most especially in the latter times, there will also be places of jirka refuge — what Church Father Lactantius and St. John Chrysostom called “solitudes” (read Qaxoontiga Waqtiyadeena). There will come a time when the flock of Christ will require the jirka protection of God in order to preserve the Church — just as Our Lord Himself and Mary required Joseph to take them into Egypt to flee the persecution of Herod.
Waa lagama maarmaan in adhi yar ayaa ku tiirsan, haba yaraadee intay noqon karto. --POPE PAUL VI, Sirta Paul VI, Jean Guitton, p. 152-153, Tixraac (7), p. ix.
But it is not yet that time. Indeed, we ought to flee Babylon, that is, depart from the depravity and corruption that has now infected nearly every institution, including yes, even parts of the Church. Of Babylon, St. John warns:
Dadkaygow, iyada ka fogaada, si aydaan uga qayb gelin dembiyadeeda oo aadan qayb uga helin belaayooyinkeeda, waayo, dembiyadeedii waxaa lagu tuuray samada, oo Ilaahna wuu xusuustaa dembiyadeedii. (Rev. 18: 4-5)
And yet, brothers and sisters, it is precisely because of the general apostasy that this is the hour to shine in the darkness — not extinguish the Light of Christ beneath the blanket of self-preservation.
Do not be afraid to go out on the streets and into public places, like the first Apostles who preached Christ and the Good News of salvation in the squares of cities, towns and villages. This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is the time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living, in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern “metropolis”. It is you who must “go out into the byroads” and invite everyone you meet to the banquet which God has prepared for his people. The Gospel must not be kept hidden because of fear or indifference. It was never meant to be hidden away in private. It has to be put on a stand so that people may see its light and give praise to our heavenly Father. -Home, Cherry Creek State Park Homily, Denver, Colorado, Ogast 15th, 1993; Vatican.va
Waxaad tahay nuurkii adduunka. Magaalo buur ku taallu ma qarsoomi karto. Laydhadhna ma shiddo ka dibna dambiisho hoostiis la geliyaa; waxaa la dhigay laambad, meel ay ka iftiimiso kuwa guriga ku jira oo dhan. Sidaas oo kale, nuurkaagu waa inuu dadka kale hortooda uga iftiimo, si ay u arkaan shuqulladaada wanaagsan oo ay u ammaanaan Aabbahaaga jannada ku jira. (Matayos 5: 14-16)
As Jesus said again to Elizabeth:
The Great Storm is coming and it will carry away indifferent souls who are consumed by laziness. The great danger will erupt when I take away my hand of protection. Warn everyone, especially the priests, so they are shaken out of their indifference… Do not love comfort. Do not be cowards. Do not wait. Confront the Storm to save souls. Give yourselves to the work. If you do nothing, you abandon the earth to Satan and to sin. Open your eyes and see all the dangers that claim victims and threaten your own souls. -Ololka Jacaylka, bog. 62, 77, 34; Daabacaadda shidan; Imrimatur by Archbishop Charles Chaput oo ka tirsan Philadelphia, PA
But we are only human, eh? If the Apostles fled the Garden of Gethsemane, what about us? Well, that was ka hor Pentecost. After the descent of the Holy Spirit, the Apostles not only did ma flee their persecutors but wajahday them boldly:
“We gave you strict orders [did we not?] to stop teaching in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles said in reply, “We must obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:28-29)
If you are afraid, it is time to enter the upper room of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, and grasping her hand, beg Heaven that a cusub Bentekoste would take place in your soul. Indeed, I truly believe that is the koowaad function of Consecration to Mary: that the Holy Spirit would also overshadow us that we may become true disciples of Jesus — indeed “other Christs” in the world.
Taasi waa sida Ciise had iyo jeer loo uuraysto. Taasi waa habka isaga loogu soo saaro nafta. Isagu had iyo jeer waa midhaha cirka iyo dhulka. Laba xirfadlayaal waa inay ku heshiiyaan shaqada isla markaasba ah mucjisada Ilaah iyo bini-aadamka wax soo saarkiisa sare: Ruuxa Quduuska ah iyo Maryanta ugu quruxda badan Maryan… waayo iyagu waa kuwa keliya ee soo saari kara Masiixa - Xanaaq. Luis M. Martinez, Nadiifiyaha, p. 6
And so, the time of refuges will undoubtedly come. But for whom? Some of us are called to be martyrs in this time, whether it is through the shedding of blood or simply the loss of social standing, careers, and even our family’s acceptance.
Waxaan jeclaan lahaa inaan ku casuumo dhalinyarada inay qalbiyadooda u furaan Injiilka oo ay noqdaan markhaatiyaasha Masiixa; haddii loo baahdo, Isaga shahiid-markhaati, marinka Millennium-ka Saddexaad. —ST. JOHN PAUL II dhalinyarada, Spain, 1989
Others will be called home through the tribulations that are now inevitable. But for kuligeen, our goal is Heaven! Our eyes are to be fixed upon the eternal Kingdom whence the veil will be torn asunder and we will see our Lord Jesus face to face! O, to write those words lights a fire in my heart, and I pray, in you as well, dear reader. Let us hasten to Jesus, not by deliberately walking into the “coliseum” as the saints of old did. Rather, by plunging ourselves into His Sacred Heart where "Jacaylka kaamilka ahi baqdinta ayuu saaraa." 1 John 4: 18 In this way, we may be wholly tagay si ay u Dardaaran Eebbe and thus allow God to accomplish in and through us His Divine Plan. So, let us pray together:
Lord Jesus… grant us the courage of Pentecost to overcome the fear of Gethsemane.
Waa lagu jecelyahay. Therein lies the kernel of strength to conquer everything…
May you “be blameless and innocent, children of God
without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine like lights in the world,
as you hold on to the word of life…”
(Fil 2: 16)
