Life contains a rhythm when we see it from beginning to end. Our personal existence is not a series of individual episodes
taking place as 'points in time.' Rather, life itself bears us along in a common pilgrimage. At any given time, we are part
of a community where birth and death, joy and sorrow, pain and pleasure, as well as sowing and harvesting are taking place.
This communal sharing of life replicates all the 'seasons of life.' For each time in our lives there is a corresponding season
in the life of the human family. We empower faith by practicing hope every day of our lives.
