Reading St. John of the Ladder's book
for the first time,
for a book club of various church friends
who are reading it with me.
It is serious reading but is reading that can give life.
Speaking of life,
we had a prayer service at my church for the March for Life
that is being held tomorrow.
For those who may not know,
I live in Ottawa that is the capital of Canada;
so the March of Life will be through the streets
to Parliament Hill,
which I can walk to myself in less than 30 minutes...
It is beautiful that we as Orthodox Christians can
pray for everyone involved,
including the unborn child.
I often think of the beauty of this time of year
and what a relief it is for everyone;
but I am also thinking about how it can be
In the sense that all can look beautiful sunlit blooming and bright
but without the light of Christ
we are walking in darkness.
