Fr. Chet’s Message for March 2015

The Mystery of the Cross

“Paradoxically, every new day may bring us many new aspirations, new enthusiasm, but each new day can also confront us with diminishments or set-backs. This is called the mystery of the cross. We need to recognize the presence of evil demons in the dark recesses of our own hearts as well as in the world. Just as Jesus chose the cross as the means of overcoming the evil of the world, we must accept the cross as a necessary part of our life’s progression on earth. The road to resurrection in a new life, whether for us personally or for the world in general, will involve a Calvary, crucifixion, and death of the ways of perception and action.”
