the stability of the sacraments

Mar 12, 2011

Tonight, during the 6.00pm Vigil Mass, while we were singing the Thanksgiving hymn “Be not Afraid”, a 4.0 (Richter) aftershock shook us.

It was the last thing we needed. But we were in the right place. Together, in the Liturgy, we were oriented towards God.

In these days we have witnessed all that we had held to be stable and secure, crumble. Under our own efforts we might be able to survive. With our own resources we can cope.

However it is only with the ultimate stability that we can live. It is God who carries us through every trial.

In this reality we find the stability we seek.
