As we walk along and lean more and more on God and less and less on human consolation we discover that we are never alone.
When we truly give thanks to God for the human consolation that comes our way we discover just how many angels and saints God has placed along the path.
Everyone and everything is originally from God.
He is the only true creator, at the beginning, and at the end of the day.
If we love only Him we love everyone and everything.
Evil is the denial of such undeniable truth.
Evil is the denial of God’s supreme creativity.
Evil is the absence of good.
And shadows and darkness need spaces and voids in order to exist.
Jesus came to cast providential light.
For as the sun rises toward “straight above” the length of negativity surely disappears.
And at perfect high noon darkness does not stand a chance.
For Jesus was raised up upon the crisscrossed tree of life.
Good squelching evil for all the world to see.
The foot of that Cross still remains.
The closer we get the brighter the day.
Spaces and voids fill with pure light.
Evil is cast into hell.
For what God creates He intends for good.
Will we then live good lives?
Will we allow our absences to be filled with genuine goodness?
Will we speak life?
Will we help build the kingdom?
Let us do so.
One stone at a time.
One flickering light at a time.
One Eucharistic encounter at a time.
Let us live “on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.”
For when we do,
Stones become bread,
Water becomes wine,
And bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ.
Lord Jesus, cover us with Your Blood.
Let us hug the foot of Your Cross.
Let us adore Your feet nailed to the trunk of the tree.
Let us get so close that not even a speck of darkness can get in between.
Let us truly ask this in Your Holy and Perfect Name.
