Joseph RAYA, Cleric, Scholar And Writer 1916-2005
Melkite Greek Catholic Archbishop sought peace in the Middle East, marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and was beaten by the Ku Klux Klan. He retired to a small Ontario village and, this year, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page S7
Toronto -- Archbishop Joseph RAYA would have loved it. Yesterday, July 20, would have marked the 65th anniversary of his becoming a deacon in the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, one of the minority Eastern rites of Catholicism, and the 64th anniversary of his ordination as a priest. Today is also the 40th day -- a biblically significant number -- following his peaceful death in the town of Barry's Bay, Ontario at the age of 88.
To boot, yesterday was the feast day of St. Elias the Prophet. In Israel, and in Archbishop RAYA's native Lebanon, the day is commemorated with night-long fireworks displays because Elias is believed to have ascended to heaven in a fiery chariot. So last night, not far from the peaceful setting of Madonna House, the Catholic lay community in Combermere, a village 200 kilometres west of Ottawa to which Archbishop RAYA retired in 1990, there was a display of fireworks along the Madawaska River to celebrate a life spent preaching peace and non-violence. Besides, the bishop loved fireworks.
It seems there isn't much, or anyone, Archbishop RAYA didn't love. He is remembered for an easy smile and for loving unconditionally, perhaps even inordinately. "He was a great, loving human being," recalls Lesya Sabada-Nahachewsky of the department of religious studies and anthropology at the University of Saskatchewan, who is writing a biography of Archbishop RAYA. "He knew that one of the hardest things to do -- probably the hardest -- is to love and forgive the enemy."
He lived that Christian ethic, literally, during and after at least two beatings administered by members of the Ku Klux Klan. It was the early 1960s in Birmingham, Alabama, and Archbishop RAYA was a parish priest in one of the most segregated cities in the American south. He was a friend of Martin Luther King Jr. and had linked arms with him and other black leaders in civil-rights marches. He was also an outspoken critic of segregation, including at his own church. As a result, Archbishop RAYA received three hooded visitors at his rectory one hot night. He was dragged out of town and thrashed.
"While they were beating him, they called him a nigger lover," says Prof. Sabada-Nahachewsky. "And he responded, 'Yes, I am a nigger lover, and I am a Ku Klux Klan lover too.' "
Just 14 months ago, the ailing cleric took a phone call at Madonna House. "Is this Father Joe?" the creaking voice queried. It was one of the Klansmen. He had tracked down his erstwhile victim to rural Ontario to ask forgiveness. Since Archbishop RAYA was in the forgiveness business, it was granted.
Friends and followers recall a globetrotting priest best known for seeking reconciliation between Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Middle East, and for his translation of the Byzantine liturgy from Arabic to English. For his life's work, he was nominated, just prior to his death, for this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
Joseph RAYA was born in Zahle, in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, on the Feast of the Assumption ("I was not yet born when my blood started praying," he later wrote). Following primary studies in Paris and ordination from the White Fathers' seminary in Jerusalem, he taught in his native town and was later assigned to become superintendent of schools in Cairo.
He immigrated to the U.S. in 1950 and, from 1952 to 1968, served in Birmingham in the thick of the historic and often violent battle for civil rights. "Few major decisions were made in the civil rights struggle without his participation and blessing," wrote Karl Friedman, a member of Birmingham's Jewish community, in documents supporting Archbishop RAYA's candidacy for the Nobel Prize.
Recognizing the need to modernize his church, he translated the Byzantine missal from Arabic to English. A decade later, he produced an English rendition of Byzantine Daily Worship, which won hearty endorsement from his Orthodox counterparts and is still considered the standard. His first connection to Madonna House, founded in 1947 by Russian baroness Catherine de Hueck Doherty and now a community of about 200 laypeople and priests who lead lives of poverty, chastity and obedience, was in 1959, when he became its first associate priest.
He served as a research aide during the historic Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965, which sought to update the church.
Consecrated an archbishop in 1967 with the title of Metropolitan of Akko, Haifa, Nazareth and All Galilee, he moved to northern Israel and took up the Palestinians' cause in the sensitive period following the 1967 Six-Day War. In August of 1972, he ordered all his Galilean churches closed one Sunday and directed what was until then the largest demonstration by a non-Jew in Israel when he led 24,000 Muslims, Christians and Jews on a peaceful march on the Knesset in Jerusalem to demand the return of residents to two Arab villages that had been evacuated in the 1948 War of Independence.
"He cultivated life while he inhabited deadly realities," commented Prof. Sabada-Nahachewsky. "His peaceful, nonviolent approach to conflicts really endeared him to people on both sides of often bitter disputes." Indeed, Archbishop RAYA became a popular figure among Israeli peaceniks. But he also angered his own higher-ups when he sold church lands to Arab farmers at bargain prices.
In 1974, he abruptly quit (though he kept the title and office). Various accounts of his life and his own letter of resignation provide cryptic reasons for the resignation, but the trigger was straightforward.
"It was interference from higher authorities within the Vatican and his own hierarchy," explains Prof. Sabada-Nahachewsky. He felt, she added, that the Vatican favoured Roman Catholics and ignored its Eastern siblings. "His problem with the Vatican was that it was colonizing Eastern Christians there."
He then established a permanent residence at Madonna House, wrote, and taught at various institutes of higher learning, including St. Paul's University in Ottawa. The bucolic life lasted until 1985, when he was asked to return to war-torn Lebanon to teach at a seminary and later, to head a diocese in the country's south, where he helped plant thousands of trees and vineyards.
His return to Madonna House in 1990 was for good and he used the time to write more than a dozen books on Byzantine liturgy, culture and worship. "God is not an old bachelor in the sky," he would insist. "God is relationship!"
God also had a sense of humour, he reasoned, and so did he. Rev. Ron CAFEO, Archbishop RAYA's aide-de-camp for the last 25 years, recalls: "He used to carry a card saying that he wanted to donate his body to science. Then, during one hospital trauma, we were changing his gown and he saw himself in a full length mirror... naked, and exclaimed, 'Oh, my God! Ron, tear up that card! Nobody would want this body!' And that was the end of that."
Despite heart troubles, he continued attending overseas synods of Melkite bishops, the last in 1998. "He was always pushing his Melkite church to be more authentic to its roots," Father CAFEO said.
Archbishop RAYA's manifold spiritual skills were perhaps best summed up in his eulogy by Bishop Ibrahim M. IBRAHIM, head of the Melkite Catholics in Canada: "He never stopped being a generator of peace, an engine of hope, a fountain of generosity, an ocean of honesty, a forest of pride, a fortress of charity, a planet of knowledge, a Melkite dynamo and a garden of love. He was all of that and much more, because he had Christ living within him and because he reflected the bounty of the son of Manitoba"
The bishop's own advice was plain enough, though it's worth wondering how many of us could live it: "Give a little, it costs a lot. Give a lot, it costs a little. Give everything, it costs nothing at all."
Joseph Marie RAYA was born in Zahle, Lebanon, on August 15, 1916. He died of heart failure on June 10, 2005, in Barry's Bay, Ontario, at the age of 88. He leaves one brother and several nieces and nephews.

RAYBURN o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2005-02-08 published
Behind-the-scenes activist left legacy of advances
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
A cross-section of London's civic life -- politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and activists -- will crowd into a London bar tomorrow to celebrate the life of a longtime, behind-the-scenes mover and shaker. Mary ZELINSKI, who died January 31 at 58, was many things to many people.
To reporters, ZELINSKI was a sharp-eyed critic of local politics with great news tips and gossip.
To entrepreneurs and community groups, she was a valuable ally in the federal government.
To politicians, she could be either a pain in the butt or a best friend.
"She has done a lot of good for the community," although few ordinary Londoners know it, said longtime friend Terry FENN.
The two became Friends in the early 1970s when FENN was running for school board trustee.
He was on stage at an all-candidates meeting and ZELINSKI was a community activist in Northbrae.
"She proceeded to chew up a candidate pretty good. I was the next speaker and I was sweating bullets."
But FENN passed ZELINSKI's credibility test and the two became Friends.
The pair realized half the city was not represented on the school board in citywide elections and over the objections of many in the old guard, got the ward system in place.
ZELINSKI worked for the federal government's Community Futures program, helping community groups get funding for their projects.
"We were helping people get back to work. Mary was a great collaborator. She leveraged money with other partners, municipal governments and other federal departments, school boards," FENN said.
In the 1990s, ZELINSKI moved to Industry Canada, providing loans to new business projects, including Chatham-Kent's ethanol-from-corn plant.
"Middlesex County owes her so much," county chief administrative officer Bill RAYBURN said. "Yet probably very few people knew her name."
ZELINSKI approached RAYBURN on his first day on the job to say Middlesex wasn't getting its share of business loans.
"Mary was the kind of person when she recognized an injustice in the system, she would work with people to make amends."
ZELINSKI worked with everyone, regardless of political stripe, trading information with reporters and politicians alike, seeming to know exactly whom to contact to get things done, said friend Anne SMITH.
"She saw the big picture," FENN said. "If you wanted to do something that wasn't right, she wouldn't let you get away with it."
ZELINSKI's health suffered the past few years, but she remained a keen critic of city hall affairs, fighting most recently over London's loose heritage policies.
"She's up in heaven now, doing her knitting and shaking her head at all the politicians everywhere, RAYBURN said.
ZELINSKI leaves her husband, Peter, and son, John.
A memorial service will be held tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Chaucer's, 122 Carling St.
