The Cross of Christ is My Light
In these days there have been crosses and Christ's Light.
A beautiful Mother's Day with my dear Mother-in-law and the cross of not being with my mother.
For their 50th wedding anniversary my parents went on a wonderful tour of Italy. On their flight home....mystery and drama! An emergency landing, suspicious illnesses....NEWS STORY resulted in their not being home for Mother's Day. Grateful for the "light" that they are now home safe and sound.
Two of my god-daughters had their First Holy Communions.... such a light of Christ and joyous family gatherings.
Then, on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, my youngest son was sliding into 2nd base.
He broke his leg in a spiral fracture of both the tibia and fibula! Although it is a cross to carry an enormous cast, his spirits have been positive and I couldn't be more proud of his can-do attitude.
There is the light of compassion from his brothers. His sister-nurse is never far from his side! The extended family truly comes together in times like these...care packages and visits. Facebook friends are dear prayer warriors.
Christ always shows that the Cross is a LIGHT...and our beautiful faith ILLUMINATES in these moments.
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
