The Paschal Mystery – A Habit of the Universe

Per Matthew Fox, what Christians call the Paschal mystery, that is the birth, death and resurrection of Christ, is something that we all participate in… we all live, die and resurrect… something too that nature everywhere as well as the entire universe participates in. Science has shown us that celestial bodies, the stars themselves, are born, live and die, and resurrect. Dying stars as supernovae spew forth elements into the cosmos that create more stars… more “beings” in the universe. So the whole idea of the Paschal mystery, says Matthew Fox, is “a habit of the Universe.”
