In Christ We Live Forever

It was the poet Goethe who once wrote that "not to know this, to die and so to rise, is to always be a troubled guest on the dark earth." Jesus invites us into his paschal meal, into his dying and rising, so that we might be good stewards on this long pilgrimage. Our lives are not essentially about a process (even the process of dying/rising) but rather about a person, about putting on the mind and heart of our Lord. It is the Father who draws us and instructs us as to the mystery of Jesus. Our belief in him leads to eternal life beyond death and a meaningful life here on earth." ~Bishop Robert F. Morneau
