Who of us can doubt that we are all glaringly living the paschal mystery? Though the interconnecting consequences of Climate Change, COVID, systemic racism and pervasive violence seem to thrust dying into the forefront, our faith demands from us the understanding that birth and resurrection are integral elements of the cycle. This session explores how that faith flows from the greater context of the Cosmic Paschal Mystery.
