Fourth Week of Lent

"A loss can be healing; something bad can be good for us for the very reason that it oppresses and torments us. This curious configuration, this association of seeming incompatibles, becomes clear in a single case: in the concept and the reality of just punishment. And just this is expressed by the [Christian] tradition: death has been imposed upon man as punishment." (Josef Pieper, Death and Immortality)
