From time to time we need to be reminded what it means
to be a Christian. The secular currents of our times
are so powerful that all of us are often caught up in
them and find ourselves in danger of being swept away
from our Lord and Saviour.
The most dangerous of these temptations has its roots
in our desire for self-preservation which leads to
seek relief from those things in this world that cause
us pain. We forget that as Christians we should not
run away from carrying our Cross.
The enclosed article "The Chalice of Christ" by Bishop
Ignatius Brianchanioff is a beautiful reminder of that
path which we are called to follow.
