Love defeats Death

Of course I’m not talking about the kind of “love” you can buy in a Hallmark card or give with a candy heart. Or even the kind of “love” that is supposed to come standard in many modern vehicles advertised during the Super Bowl.

But love– true love– is the reason we go to church today and humble ourselves. We ask for ashes to be put on our heads, to remind us of the death we deserve. The death we even, at times, seek.

The death that was overcome by Love so strong that death couldn’t hold it in the grave.

Will you join me this Lent to  contemplate Love and its power to defeat death?
