I've been away since last Saturday - off on retreat to my favorite place. I was there both for Mass on Sunday and for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Monday. It's nice to be able to socialize after Mass with people who are like-minded on traditional Catholic topics!
The drive on Saturday was quite beautiful; at home we'd been having a lot of cloudy, gloomy days, but once over the pass, the sunshine was bright and cheery.
The drive home was overcast, but it didn't rain - that was a plus. And the cloudy skies made for a certain beauty all its own:
Our spiritual journey is like that, too; isn't it? There are the bright, sunny, consoling times, but the gray times can be edifying as well. And through it all, we learn that God is there, no matter what "weather" might be.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
