A Lenten meditation by Thomas John in India
Under the Shadow of the Cross
It is very important to take a step back from our highly competitive, fast-paced, over-consuming, rat race and take a second look at ourselves and ponder over the meaning of life and where we are headed. The Lenten season provides an occasion for that. The cross of Jesus Christ and his life, which led up to it provides a frame for a proper perspective on our life and its preoccupations.
