From Brennan Manning's Ragamuffin Gospel
"Is life absurd or does it have a purpose? Jesus replies that not only do our lives have purpose but God has directly intervened in human affairs to make abundantly clear what that purpose is. What is the Ultimate Reality? Jesus responds that the Really Real is generous, forgiving, saving love. In the end will life triumph death? With unshaken confidence Jesus answers, The Kingdom of My Father cannot be overcome, even by death. In the end everything will be all right. Nothing can harm you permanently; no loss is lasting, no defeat more than transitory, no disappointment is conclusive. Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death will be part of your journey, but the kingdom of God will conquer all the horrors. No evil can resist grace forever."
Only wishing it weren't quite so high...
