Where Faith Meets Life

Haven’t you had at least a moment when you dreamed of escaping the pressures of daily life to live in a Monastery, cave or on an isolated mountain top?  I know I have.  But is that what we really want?  More importantly is that what we need?

It’s when our faith is put to the test, where the rubber meets the road so to speak that faith becomes real.  In the midst of dealing with dirty diapers, rush hour traffic, illness, shrinking paychecks and difficult bosses is when what we have read, studied and prayed goes into action if we let it.

” Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope.” ― Alexandre Dumas

 

The Month of Hope

This year three of the great holidays celebrating hope all fall within the month of March.  First on the 20th we have the Vernal Equinox, that gentle reminder from our mother, the earth, that life goes on, rebirth and second chances are all still possible.

Then on the 26th we celebrate the beginning of Passover.  If the story of the miraculous events that led to the Exodus with the children of Israel escaping slavery to find the Promised Land doesn’t give you hope I don’t know what would.

Finally on the 31st comes Resurrection Sunday (also known as Easter) that great celebration of light out of darkness, hope out of despair and life out of death.

Whether you celebrate any of these holidays or not, we all need hope.  Never forget, where there is life, there is hope.  This month the quotes will be focusing on hope.
