Grateful for our wonderful friend, Dale Brooks, who sent us this gem from Thomas Merton:
"Make ready for the Christ whose smile, like lightning, sets free the song
of everlasting glory that now sleeps, in your paper flesh, like dynamite."
Brothers and sisters, "the everlasting song of glory" is within us, "like dynamite," and it's our daily experience of the face - of the smile! - of Jesus that lights off this powder keg!
Closer, Jesus, draw us ever closer!
