Friday Night Faith Series: The Two Ways

Six Fridays in September & October 2012

We're all familiar with the poem The Road Not Taken which ends in the famous lines -

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Although the ending of Robert Frost's poem draws us to contemplate the paths we ourselves have traveled, we often forget that a few verses earlier he presents these two paths as identical in every way. Sometimes when we are faced with decisions in life, on the surface one way looks no different than the other. If here the paths diverge, but in the end I arrive at my destination, does it really matter which way I go?

The Didache, a Christian writing that is attributed to the teachings of the Apostles themselves and was written some eighteen centuries before Frost penned his poem, illustrates to us that the way does in fact matter. It begins -

There are two ways, one of life and one of death,
and the difference is great between the two ways.

This Friday Night Faith series we will cover some of today's most hotly contested topics.  The world presents these things to us in obscure and oblique language designed to mask evil.  In opposition to this, we have gathered some amazing local priests and laymen who will clearly, honestly, and joyfully present to you the truth of the matter.  It is time for us to remember that the truth does exist.  It is time for us to step outside the artificial labels of the modern American political system and remember we are Catholics first and foremost. It is time to remember that being Catholic means something...that it means everything.

So let us embrace the Way, he who is the Truth.  Let us embrace him for he is Life. Let us follow him, to make clear the differences between the way of life and the way of death to all who can see us and hear our voices.  Come join us for this Friday Night Faith series and embrace your calling in this world, to help make the way of death the road not taken.
