Jesus calls us to follow him. His call has all the authority of God. It is however an invitation to which we respond in complete freedom. Enlightened by the Holy Spirit, we followers of Christ find ourselves liberated from many burdens and difficulties.
The wintry months of December and January are synonymous with one sport in particular: ice-skating. Though our mild winters generally no longer allow us to enjoy gliding over frozen ponds, canals and lakes, our predecessors certainly could, and took full advantage.
We are immersed in God. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit surround us. The Holy Trinity made us, holds us in being and shares divine life with us. God is the frame for all that happens to us, everything we do.
