A Reflection for Easter

Sometimes, when disoriented in the wilderness, the Lord sends Angels to remind us of who we are. These creatures of unspeakable beauty hold up mirrors for us to see ourselves and then to simultaneously look out from deep within them. In this way, our existence turns into a reflection conjured by active memories of those who love us — and of ourselves. Within this confluence, by God’s grace, we exist and it is only here that it is possible to listen and obey; to act on Christ’s command to pick up our cross and to remember the providence of a falling sparrow.
