Gaining and Losing

Jesus' radical act of self giving stands at the centre of our lives.
In the Gospel , Jesus compare Himself to a grain of wheat that died in order to bear much fruit. The great loss of Jesus' own life, has become the very ground of our hope.
Often we too are at a loss to explain our own losses: our sufferings and our pain. Dying to self is a gradual process.
"Every act of love involves dying to selfishness.
Every act of kindness involves dying to meanness.
Every act of humility involves dying to pride.
Every act of courage involves dying to cowardice.
Every act of forgiveness involves dying to bitterness
