There was an intriguing lesson about mercy to be learned inside the prison today, courtesy of Saint Dismas.
Our granddaughter paid us an unexpected visit yesterday afternoon, and it turned into something of an Easter moment for me.
Lately, when I hear the gospel accounts of that first Easter morning, I am struck by the impact of the event on those closest to the resurrected Lord.
What strange words they are: ‘Behold, the Lamb of God.’
Just a few more hours are left in Lent, as I write these words. (Although if you want to get a really intriguing and confusing conversation going, just ask any semi-knowledgeable Catholic when Lent ‘begins’ and ‘ends’.
I guarantee: You won’t get much of a satisfying answer, since the ‘40 days’ of Lent are stretched out over 46 actual calendar days between Ash Wednesday and Easter.)

What a blessing to know that Jesus is–indeed–With Us Still!
Let us pause now…to recall that we are in the presence of the Holy One.
