February 18, we again begin the Season of Lent. We begin again that
journey to hope, that journey to peace, that journey to community - the
journey to Resurrection and Resurrected life.
entering Jerusalem. Do you hear the crowds? They’re cheering. Maybe I’ve
made a difference after all. Maybe I did touch their lives. But then,
again, my mission has not been about me. My father didn’t send me to
earn the cheers of others. He asked me to change people’s hearts, to
change how they look at each other, how they value life and the good
things they can share in this world.
I have a bit farther to travel and this part of the journey I must make
alone. I’m afraid now. I’m afraid that all that I’ve tried to do will
make no difference at all. I’m afraid of being alone. I’m afraid of the
pain that lies ahead. All along the way, I have told you that everything
we experience in life matters, how we live our lives matters, how we
serve others matters. Now I must take that final step and fully give my
life for the sake of others. I have to trust my father that this will
matter, that it will open for you and for all of our brothers and
sisters a way home to the eternal life our father promises us.
Up till now, you have shared my journey with me. Now I must proceed
alone and soon my journey will be over. Yours will just be beginning. If
what we have shared has mattered, if the road we have traveled together
has made any difference, then you must live that difference. With your
brothers and sisters, you will continue the mission, you will touch
people’s lives, you will show them compassion, you will change hearts.
In the end, the measure of your life will be your journey, but I promise
I will walk with you.
