Reaching for the Light
Spring is officially still a few weeks away, but signs of its impending arrival are popping up amid the relatively mild weather of late. For about a week, I have carefully noted the green shoots from a cluster of crocuses poking through the dead leaves in the monastery courtyard just outside the refectory. Now, they have begun blooming. Always a welcome sight--and a mysterious sign pointing to a much larger truth with a much greater promise for us all.
