In the pierced heart of the Crucified, God's own heart is opened up--here we see who God is and what he is like. Heaven is no longer locked up. God has stepped out of hiddenness.
~Pope Benedict XVI
What a sad turn of events, made sadder by the sorrow evident in Fr. Kimel's words.
...and he couldn't have quoted from a more evocative poem than Eliot's 'Four Quartets'.What we call the beginning is often the endAnd to make an end is to make a beginningThe end is where we start from. ('Little Gidding', from 'The Four Quartets)The Frodo citation is haunting.
