He is risen!!!

ALLELUIA!

Huzzah huzzah! Easter mass and lectoring and Daddy's birthday and the resurrection and the hope of salvation all in one!

So, had an image today at communion (ironic, non?), about the apocalypse. Not what one would think - all dark and storm clouds and worse and worse and plagues and floods and torture and dismay - all that comes before. We're in that before. But, possibly, when Christ comes He will deafen the world with His laughter and will blind the world with His beauty. Where He steps, buildings will crumble - not for fear, but for the new earth, the beauty, the loveliness, the greenery that will spring up behind Him. It's not that evil men will cower for fear of His terribleness - they will cower because of His glory.

There's more, isn't there always, and I've been rather chomping at the bit (of this time here on earth) because there's so much more and this (earth) seems rather pointless in the grand scheme of things ("how weary, stale, flat and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world"), yet, they must be rather grand to Him to allow it still ("let be"). So, soldiering on.

Life is so much easier to comprehend when one puts it into Romance terms. When there are dragons to be slain and knights to slay them, suddenly all our quotidiens fall into place.

Mood: Mieux, merci - plus mieux
Music: It ought to be Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus"
Happiness is: Being woken with a rather wonderful text message.
Read these poems! John Donne is the man!
