Easter Monday 2007

Easter was especially sweet this year. The small church for which I am "interim priest" was simply radiant with its shrine to the Infant Jesus flanked by an abundance of lillies and visited by prayerfully old women and wide-eyed children (some looking for chocolate eggs).

We began with the new fire in the pilgrim's courtyard on the north side of the church. It was a chilly night but the Oklahoma wind was Quaker calm. The flame took hold quickly and was soon spread to the fifty or so humble candles held by the church's most fervent sons and daughters. A pool of flickering light in a darkened world. I thought of the fire in the courtyard of the High Priest's house. I half expected someone to ask us, surely you people are his disciples?

Yes, we know the man.
