First Wednesday of Lent

John La Farge, Visit of Nicodemus to Christ (1880)

Poor Nicodemus... sadly, old age doesn't guarantee wisdom... *sigh*
To be born of free-blowing Spirit, that is the key...


The only way that we can rest at peace in our minds is when we live the fullness of now, or what some in the Christian tradition called 'the sacrament of the present moment'. Otherwise life is just endlessly rehashing the past and rehearsing the future, neither of which create rest.
Richard Rohr in God for Us, pp. 35-36
