QUOTE FOR MARCH 2020
“Most of us are intrinsically religious because of our mortality. We are reminded of this mortality on Ash Wednesday. On this first day of Lent the priest draws a cross of ash on our forehead, saying, ‘Remember, O man, from dust thou didst come and to dust thou shall return.’
Graveyards and tombs reflect a civilization’s beliefs about life and death. In 1968 Nancy and I visited Lenin’s tomb in Red Square in Moscow. As we emerged into the bright light of day, I realized that there are two tombs that mark history and time. There is the corpse-ridden tomb outside the walls of the Kremlin and its copies in Peking and Hanoi, and there is the empty tomb inside the walls of Jerusalem.
They represent two visions of man’s destiny. The full tomb of Lenin says man’s destiny is to die. The empty tomb of St. Joseph of Arimathea says that man’s destiny is to live outside of time in Heaven. The empty tomb gives us the vision of God and eternal life.
One vision is created by an atheistic ideology that holds philosophic materialism (not limited to Marxism) as humanity’s greatest good. The other vision is born of belief in the eternal God in whose nature we partake, and holds that sacrificial love is humanity’s greatest good.”
The Most Rev. Robert Sherwood Morse, All Is Grace (ACU 2017), in a sermon preached at St. Joseph’s Chapel, Berkeley, in 2005
