Welcome to April 2020

Well, here we are.

Happy April 2020! Wherever this month takes us, the flowers will bloom, and Easter will come.

There is suffering and death in the world. We all have a different, more specific kind of awareness of this reality in these days as we join together in the fight for life. We are united in the effort to protect the lives of the most vulnerable among us, and (with so many unknown factors in this pandemic) to preserve our own lives and so much that is genuine and good in our societies.

We have hope, ultimately, not because of the absolute sufficiency our own power, but because God gives the measure and value to our efforts, according to love.

Death is a sorrow without parallel, but Jesus says, "I am the resurrection and the life."
