Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

Finding ourselves in a triumphal procession enhances the reality of both victory and humiliation. This powerful metaphor expresses the fragile tenor of our experience, as we follow in the footsteps of the Crucified and Risen One. Rejection can pierce our souls, and we flounder, weighed down by the woes of the cross, and while our humiliation runs deep and tears us apart, we are not left in utter defeat by those opposed to us, as this is only part of the procession. In the midst of this march, there is also a celebration of victory that will carry us through towards our destiny of resurrection.
