Live the Liturgy Inspiration for the Week
Listen carefully to the passion of Christ as it unlocks the door
that brings us to the true meaning of human life. Holding what
seems like opposite polarities of human  existence, it weaves
us through the highest of triumphs and the darkest of tragedies.
As we witness and meditate upon Jesus’s last days on earth, we see
most vividly that God is present in and through it all. God is not
only the glue that holds all of life’s seemingly opposing experiences
together, but He is the One who offers incredible promise and hope
on our road to fulfillment and eternal life. It was only through
experiencing the burning agony of suffering’s loneliness and
heart-wrenching pain that Jesus experienced the joyful
exultation of his resurrected self. There are profound lessons here for
all of us to learn. ©LPi
