THIS WEEK'S CATECHESIS SUMMARY
Lenten Interlude: Lent-3. We discussed physical challenges to our well-being, especially those irresolvable over the short term or possibly ever; such pain and tragedy often comes unbidden, but suffering for them is a choice. We saw very different approaches to difficult life-scenarios: A family's love and care for a severely challenged child-involving her in normal daily life to the extent possible- and the love their world inspires in all who encounter it; or, a still functional young woman choosing to end her life rather than face a slower, painful death, thereby depriving all of a similar opportunity for love's profound depth. We compared praying 14 Stations, where the devotion ends with Jesus in the tomb, with a 15 Stations version that ends with His Resurrection; correct theologically, the latter dilutes, for one with hardships, the message of trust the shorter version offers. Activity: Read Ps 22 - its opening lines spoken by Christ on the cross. Visit the website for Pearl Joy Brown: Family love/joy/beauty amid great challenge
