I believe that the Mystery of the Cross is saying that the pattern of transformation is always death transformed. . . . Loss and renewal is the perennial, eternal, transformative pattern. It’s like a secret spiral: each time we allow the surrender, each time we trust the dying, we will experience a new quality of life within. —Richard Rohr http://ow.ly/c8u330b3Z1I
