Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
I am very familiar with the ways of death: stress, judgments, resentments and self-centredness. But am I just as familiar with the ‘ways of life’? Am I really walking the walk of Jesus, risen and alive? Is his peace displacing stress within and without? Do I let his mercy and love pour into me and through my being to others? Am I nurturing his gifts in creation and in the lives of others around me? Holy Spirit, make me to know the ways of life.
You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11)
Let not the things which have been made new return to their former corruption.
St. Leo the Great
