Requiescat in pace

Today I received a surprise gift.

A parishioner gave me a nine-page account of her stepfather’s passing into eternal life five years ago. It is replete with vivid imagery of his declining physical health and his nascent, but rapidly-evolving, spiritual health. It is also gave me a glimpse into the depth and breadth of the author’s spirituality. I am in awe. I know this woman to have a profound love of God; for I have noted a keen expression of familial and communal life. Her prayer is exquisite, and I find her spiritual discernment to be acute.

I am gifted by her willingness to share with me this personal account of God’s Divine Plan.
