The Church, "a flourishing garden of life"

With The Cathedral of the Madeleine's centennial now over, let us heed the words of Blessed Pope John XXIII: 'We [the Church] are not on Earth as museum-keepers, but to cultivate a flourishing garden of life and to prepare for a glorious future."

A deep diaconal bow to my brother deacons, Eric and Vince, authors of the forthcoming book Ascend, for the JXXIII quote. They also have a website: Catholic Story. If you're a Facebook user, become a member of Ascend. I recommend both!
