Thursday afternoon’s walk took me through the lively campus of New Jersey Institute of
Technology (NJIT). I sat on a bench at the edge of their central quad and edited a chapter for my latest manuscript -- meditations on the Easter season. The reflections each have something to do with the “Paschal Mystery” -- our belief that Christ’s principal way of saving us is through is passion, death, resurrection and ascension. The topic is a tremendously rich one, that includes the whole range of human experiences: victory coming from defeat, life from death, living a life of love, and so on.
