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

~It's that time of the year for our annual retreat in the Cumberlands. Driving through the state of North Carolina last night was fascinating in that people were driving more slowly, under the speed limit of 70 MPH...no speed demons. Also, traffic was lighter than usual for a Memorial holiday. Perhaps the nearly $4.00/gallon gas prices have kept people home.
