May this Holy Week be a time when the hearts of the frightened and the minds of the timid are enlargened to see the redemptive power of forgiveness. May those who lurk in the darkness of agnosticism and atheism break through to the light of truth and love and see that the pain they feel cannot be treated successfully by cynicism because their hearts are restless for their creator’s redeeming love. Love wins in the end, and love’s power comes from its willingness to let others hate. Love wins because it serves while the pusillanimous and cynical sit in judgement. Love wins, and it is calling you to come home.
