On this gorgeous (and unusually warm) Sunday afternoon, I grabbed my camera and took a walk to soak up the radiant fall colors on the grounds of Saint Meinrad Archabbey. Although it has been very dry here (I don't think we've received even a quarter inch of rain since I returned from Europe two months ago), the foliage is doing its best to put on a show.
My favorite time of year.
How paradoxical that the leaves are most brilliant as they are dying and falling to the ground in preparation for the cold, dark days of winter -- only to be outdone by the bursting of fresh buds and tender blooms each spring.
The Light of Creation reveals to us the radiant promise of the Resurrection with each new day and season. Blessed be God forever.
