Dear Blogging Friends,
Today, the wind shifted so we have a crystal clear day for the first time in a week. I can breathe again. What a simple and glorious thing it is to breathe without coughing! So today, I will be outside with my family enjoying the woods in our backyard, clearing away brush and as I whack them, I shall work away my frustrations. Today's reading from the Office from Ambrose will be my food for thought.
Today, the early morning light filtered through the stained-glass windows at church as we prepared for today's traditional Mass. There was great comfort in meditating on the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, its efficacy and perpetual gift...praying with the timeless words in the holy language of Mother Church...this epoch, too, will pass. Though we are assailed, Christ is our Victor.
Happy Feast of St. Basil the Great!
