Quote of the day, 22 April: Anders Arborelius, OCD

Every event, no matter how insignificant, in the life of man is contained in the essential event of history, which is the coming of God in Jesus Christ. Every event, every word, every sigh, therefore, has an incalculable value and dignity.

Our personal history is a history of salvation. Jesus wants to save us, all of us, in the midst of all the ordinary events. Every event in life is somehow a participation in the mystery of Christ, which is taking place here and now.

Through our baptismal union with Christ, His mystery becomes ours. Here and now, we live His Passion and Resurrection. His Paschal Mystery is also ours.

Cardinal Anders Arborelius, OCD

Chapter 6: To belong to Jesus (excerpt)
