A World Turned Upside Down

As I write this post, on Monday of Holy Week, the world is still reacting to the news that the great Notre-Dame Cathedral has been virtually destroyed by fire.

I am struck by the fact that while we consider how Jesus turned the world upside down with his everlasting message of love, the world is also turned upside down with the sad reality that nothing man builds, not even the great cathedral, is everlasting.

All the more reason that we prayerfully reflect on the meaning of this season.

We are called to follow the One whom the world rejected and hated.  We are strengthened by the fact that, though rejected, His message lives on – indeed He lives on.

In a world that that can seem so uncertain, so ultimately temporary, that is certain.

In that, I find everlasting hope.
