The Feast of the Holy Cross

Today, on the Feast of the Holy Cross, I thought I’d share a thought from one of our Franciscan brothers.

“God wants useable instruments who will carry the mystery, the weight of glory, and the burden of sin simultaneously, who can bear the darkness and the light, who can hold the paradox of incarnation–flesh and spirit, human and divine, joy and suffering at the same time, just as Jesus did.”

–Fr. Richard Rohr, Things Hidden

Pax,

James R. Dennis, O.P.

  1. That is just the smallest fraction of me. I have much farther to go.

  2. Oh, my. I have a lot to work on. Thanks for a thought provoking, if a little intimidating, start to my day, Br. James.

  3. Beautiful!

  4. Eleanor, I’m so glad you liked it.

    Susan and Barbara, I think we all have further to go. Thus we are all pilgrims, within a pilgrim Church. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

  5. All hail the power of Iesu’s name! Deus vobiscum.

  6. Thank you sharing this important message!
