Author Will Duquette
Like it or not (and who would!), suffering is regular part of daily life. Will Duquette continues his reflections on the Rosary with the reminder us that the Carrying of the Cross is the mystery of suffering: we are privileged to join our sufferings to Christ’s and to carry His cross in carrying our own.
When I come to the Proclamation of the Kingdom, I always imagine Christ and His disciples trudging down a dusty road in Galilee in the hot sun, en route from one town to another. Certainly He spoke in synagogues; certainly He spoke to large crowds of people; but the bulk of His time was taken up with the simple fact of traveling, on foot, with all of the discomfort that that implies.
The Presentation is the Mystery of Obedience, of the miracles that happen when we simply do what God asks of us.
