Winter is really over in California as our tulips are blooming. This is a peaceful picture and I thought it would be good to just take some time to contemplate and feel the silence of this scene.
Here is a thought that also comes from my re-reading Radical Optimism by Beatrice Bruteau: "Entering into the heart of Jesus means also entering into our own heart, the center of our being, the core of our existence."
The Heart of Jesus was pierced with a lance so that this wound is always open for us. Yes, this is a mystical way of entering into the depth of His Heart so full of love for us. On this First Friday of April, just one week before Good Friday, let us ask Jesus to let us descend into the depths of His Heart.
