Easter Sunday

Welcome to the Catholic Church Stacy E., Ian F., Jon B., T.J. C., Tommy O., et al.! What an exciting day! Christ is Risen!

Also, please pray for the soul of Matt James, a St. X footballer and ND recruit who died on Good Friday while on Spring Break. He was a good friend of two of my cousins and in my brother's class. I know his death has affected many in Cincinnati and in my own family, so please keep the James family and all those affected by Matt's death in your prayers as well.

Back to Hillsdale tomorrow; it has been so wonderful to be home, even for a short while.

Little Gidding [excerpt]

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.
