A Great Act of Fidelity

“Jesus didn’t leave us a lot of rituals. He left us his Word and he left us one ritual, the Eucharist. He refers to other rituals such as baptism, and other parts of the Christian scriptures refer to the laying on of hands, to the confessing of sins, and to various kinds of anointing with oil, but Jesus, himself, left us only his Word and the Eucharist. And it is around these two things, the Word and the Eucharist, that we form community; from these we create the church,”

Our One Great Act of Fidelity: Waiting for Christ in the Eucharist by Fr. Ronald Rolheiser

Here and Now

“But still, what about life after death? When we live in communion with God, when we belong to God’s own household, there is no longer any ‘before’ or ‘after.’ Death is no longer the dividing line. Death has lost its power over those who belong to God, because God is the God of the living, not of the dead. Once we have tasted the joy and peace that come from being embraced by God’s love, we know that all is well and will be well.”

Here and Now by Fr. Henri Nouwen.
