2012 Calendar: April
This is also the month when - in a few days' time - we will recall Christ's passion, death and resurrection. Here we are also presented with an abundance - of love, but also great fragility and vulnerability. We have the paradox of divine strength and beauty allowing itself to be made weak and disfigured. And so this month's quote, from II Corinthians, seems an appropriate continuation of this theme. Paul writes that he has begged God to relieve him of a "thorn", and God replies...
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness (12.9)
Have a blessed Holy Week, one and all
