Just thinking about what this week is all about. What a great sacrifice was made thousands of years ago, so we can live a life of freedom and love today. As I was reading a blog I follow, I came across this profound quote. Something to chew on!
"To be connected with the church is to be associated with scoundrels, warmongers, fakes, child-molesters, murderers, adulterers and hypocrites of every description.
It also, at the same time, identifies you with saints and the finest persons of heroic soul of every time, country, race, and gender.
To be a member of the church is to carry the mantle of both the worst sin and the finest heroism of soul because the church always looks exactly as it looked at the original crucifixion, God hung among thieves."
-- Fr. Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I., "The Holy Longing"
