All We Know

I am back in NYC after a few wonderful days visiting friends in Washington. Its always another experience to return home, even when the journey was as enjoyable as mine. The New Year is rapidly aging already. We are always in transit. News just arrived about the death of the 92 year sister of one of our priests and we can rejoice in a long and faithful life which she led as a woman religious. Yet even when someone has completed such a long journey, we are still in awe of the Mystery from which we came, in which we are now held and to which we shall one day return. May she rest in the Lord and pray for us on the way.
