I really can't do much better today than to quote Lady Julian of Norwich:
Sin must needs be but all will be well, and all will be well, and all manner of thing will be well.There's a very thought provoking blog essay about this assertion that you can find right here:
'All Will Be well' - Polyanna Platitude or Responsible Mystic Theodicy?
There are also some interesting comments to that post.
A blessed Ash Wednesday and Lenten season to you all.
