Inspiration – Mar 18

Steven PutmanLiturgyLeave a Comment

We all fear losing that which is familiar. We fear dying. When our securities and familiarities are threatened, the anxiety of uncertainty can lead us into fear and despair. We have difficulty believing that new life comes from death. This is the basis of what it means to hope. There are no dead ends or final endings with God. Through his passion and death, Jesus opens up the possibility for new life and new beginnings for all believers. “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” As our journey of Lent hastens to an end, the mystery of Christ’s passion and death come before us to teach us valuable lessons both for this life and the next.
