Why is it always the old dudes that have to walk around the locker room at the gym in the nude?
Just as the sun’s rays in springtime cause the buds on the branches of the trees to sprout and open up, so the radiance that streams forth from Christ’s resurrection gives strength and meaning to every human hope, to every expectation, wish and plan. Hence the entire cosmos is rejoicing today, caught up in the springtime of humanity, which gives voice to creation’s silent hymn of praise
- Pope Benedict (via deigratia21)
When one chooses to die for a cause, it requires one firm decision. When one chooses to live for a causes, it requires a firm decision on every choice till death. Christ did not just die for us, he was born for us, he lived for us, laughed for us, cried for us, spoke for us, suffered for us. Every breath, every choice, for us, me, and you. How great this week we can truly remember this!
