On Saturday, we talked a lot about the resurrection and learning to love like God (What Ignatius called the contemplatio). But I also spoke at length about the Paschal mystery. If you go through the presentation, you'll read about the Pascal mystery having five parts: Death, Resurrection, Ascension, Waiting 40 days, and Pentecost.

We each live the Paschal Mystery in our lives, sometimes going through the five steps over and over. Sometimes it takes a long time, even years. Sometimes it's short. We can even experience the Paschal Mystery all in one day! When we suffer loss, we can choose how we want to suffer, of course. Christ offers us a way to make that suffering redemptive. (2 Cor. 7:10)

Fortunately for us, our wounds can be healed and redeemed. We can learn to love like God once we embrace the methods of Jesus - the death, resurrection, Ascension, and receiving the grace of the Holy Spirit so we can go on to spread God's love.

“fill your minds with everything that is true, everything that is noble, everything that is good and pure, everything that we love and honor and everything that can be thought virtuous or worthy of praise.... Then the God of Peace will be with you.” Phil 4:8-9
