The Triumph of Failure
Author: Fr. Paul Check
2011 Courage/EnCourage Conference Closing Address
Fr. Paul Check, the Executive Director of Courage, gives the final talk at the annual Courage/EnCourage Conference held this year in August at the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, IL near Chicago. He titles his talk “The Triumph of ‘Failure’” and explains how many of our triumphs come from our ‘failures’. During the course of our lives we have many failures in regard to living up to the Christian ideal but Christ is able to raise us up and bring triumph from these very failures. He relates this to the seeming failure of Jesus’ ignominious death, which resulted in the greatest of all triumphs. Listen to this message of hope and encouragement.
