WOMAN – My Dear Popa Beato JPII


My Memory about my Popa

Begitu banyak yang terjadi dalam hidup saya, membuat saya kehilangan respect pada kaum lelaki. Sulit sekali melihat sosok pria dari sudut pandang kesempurnaan gambar Allah sebagai seorang ciptaan pertamanya yang hari ini seakana-akan hanya bisa menggunakan tanpa tanggung jawab serta kemampuan kaum lelaki yang hanya bisa berbicara tapi kalau disuruh action/ mengambil tanggung jawab hasilnya…. NOL BESAR!!!

Surat my hero JPII ini mengambil bagian yang besar dari pemulihan luka saya terhadap sosok lelaki. Dari hati dan raga seorang lelaki seperti beliau, saya menangkap ketulusan, kerendah-hatian, dan kasih yang memancar. Ia seorang paus, dan dari harinya beliau berkata: “Women’s dignity has often been unacknowledged and their prerogatives misrepresented; they have often been relegated to the margins of society and even reduced to servitude. This has prevented women from truly being themselves and it has resulted in a spiritual impoverishment of humanity, for this I am truly sorry.” Saat membaca bagian ini ada rasa sejuk yang mengalir di hati saya, seperti mengobati  luka yang ada dalam hati saya.

Sapaannya kepada setiap wanita membuat saya tersapa dan merasa dikasihi. His understanding about womanhood calling is outstanding! Agak sulit mengerti, bagaimana seorang lelaki bisa mengerti pergumulan keperempuanan seorang perempuan baik sebagai anak perempuan, saudari, istri, ibu, perempuan yang bekerja, tetapi beliau membahasakannya dengan sempurna.

Therefore the Church gives thanks for each and every woman: for mothers, for sisters, for wives; for women consecrated to God in virginity; for women dedicated to the many human beings who await the gratuitous love of another person; for women who watch over the human persons in the family, which is the fundamental sign of the human community; for women who work professionally, and who at times are burdened by a great social responsibility; for “perfect” women and for “weak” women – for all women as they have come forth from the heart of God in all the beauty and richness of their femininity; as they have been embraced by his eternal love; as, together with men, they are pilgrims on this earth, which is the temporal “homeland” of all people and is transformed sometimes into a “valley of tears”; as they assume, together with men, a common responsibility for the destiny of humanity according to daily necessities and according to that definitive destiny which the human family has in God himself, in the bosom of the ineffable Trinity.

The Church gives thanks for all the manifestations of the feminine “genius” which have appeared in the course of history, in the midst of all peoples and nations; she gives thanks for all the charisms which the Holy Spirit distributes to women in the history of the People of God, for all the victories which she owes to their faith, hope and charity: she gives thanks for all the fruits of feminine holiness.
From: Apostolic Letter Mulieris Dignitatem of The Supreme Pontiff John Paul II on the Dignity and Vocation of Woman.

Bagi saya, Paus JPII become my hero, I always call him my dear Popa. Karena melalui sapaannya ia menyelamatkan jiwa muda saya bertahun-tahun lalu, dan saya percaya sebagai paus yang mempunyai hati yang sangat besar, cinta yang luas, passion yang kuat terhadap orang muda, seperti ia menyapa Lia muda bertahun-tahun lalu dengan ketulusan, kerendah-hatiannya, kejujuran, dan ke’ada’an beliau, Beato JPII akan menyapa kita semua, khususnya generasi muda kaum perempuan dengan pengertian yang baru akan panggilan keperempuanan.

Pengertian itu akan membebaskan dan membuat kita semua mampu terbang tinggi dan merayakan panggilan keperempuanan kita dari semuda mungkin. Karena ada rencana besar di balik panggilan ini.

Yes, it is time to examine the past with courage, to assign responsibility where it is due in a review of the long history of humanity. Woman have contributed to that history as much as man and, more often than not, they did so in much difficult condition.

Thank you, every woman, for the simple fact of being a woman! Through the insight which is so much a part of your womanhood you enrich the world’s understanding and help to make human relations more honest and authentic. (Popa Beato JPII) 

Popa with all the saints

Miss you so much my dear Popa, please… please… Pray for me!
