We donÕt possess our own lives. We are stewards of the life that God has given us, and for however long God continues to give us breath. Our life is not about hoarding or about conserving life for its own sake but its opposite: about giving. Our life is about our willingly giving up our life and our lifeÕs energies following the example we see in ChristÕs own self-emptying.
-Br. Curtis Almquist, SSJE
