Pain and the Resurrection: The Route to Communion

Recently, a loved one of mine has been experiencing relentless pain. It all began with minor aches years ago which have gradually become worse and worse – to the point of interfering with his day to day life.

In the time of Easter there is a temptation to leave all the fruits of Lent behind, growing lax and celebrating too heartily. It is important, therefore, to ask: what is the continuity between Lent and Easter?

Live the Victory of the Resurrection by Committed Love

Commitment always brings suffering. Even on a small scale, we see it in the fact that accepting an invitation to something on a Saturday night means having to say “no” if a better invitation happens to come along. On a larger scale, it’s seen in the decision to be a father when it means giving of one’s time and living for another and when i...
