Sunday, Mar 17th - The Second Sunday in Lent

(Meditations with permission from Intercom magazine)


Love and suffering. The two go together. We cannot have love without suffering; and we will not suffer unless we love. The call to love is the call to suffer; the willingness to suffer is but a confirmation of love. The joy of suffering is born of love just as the joy of love is born of suffering! Does that sound strange and surprising? The drama of human birth repeatedly teaches us this truth for in it there is both pain and love. It is from suffering and love that life emerges. The deeper the love, the deeper is the suffering; the deeper the suffering, the deeper is the love.
