Easter 2018

As the calendar turns to Easter, we have a choice. Will we focus on the momentary euphoria of the day OR are our lives set on the path to joy? Joy comes from a life seeking justice through right relationships lived in self-sacrificing love. It is indeed a journey – sometimes two steps forward, one step back OR maybe the other way around! This is the truth of the way of the disciples of Jesus – the only true way forward is through the cross. The difficulties and the successes are shared as we live our lives in the image of our God – in community.

 
Momentary euphoria is nice and has its place but it can be a distraction from ’the main game’ – living a life for others which creates an inclusive community. Throughout the coming twelve months may we each live lives on the path to joy, since ‘joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God’ (Teilhard de Chardin) 
 
Wishing you joy!
Patrick
