“Our openness to infinite possibility—the willingness to consider that there might be another way, that a miracle might be possible—makes us available to miracles.
We become pregnant with possibilities, once having allowed the thought of infinite possibility to penetrate our consciousness.
Where parts of us have died—to hope, to growth, to creativity—God restores our crucified selves to new life, restoring the cosmic order to situations in which even the most horrifying chaos reigned before.
Human suffering is inevitable in a world that is permeated with illusion and fear, yet through the power of forgiveness we can and do transform it. With every prayer, every moment of faith, every act of mercy, every instant of contrition, every effort at forgiveness, in time we move beyond our suffering.
We die to who we used to be and are reborn as who we are meant to be, thus lifted above darkness and ignorance and death.
Each of us goes through this—we all have our own crucifixions, our own battles and trials and tribulations. But each of us has within us as well the potential for resurrection, as an indwelling God both calls us out of darkness and delivers us to light. Resurrection, salvation, and enlightenment are the same.ears to Triumph
