Visit from a cardinal

Visit from a cardinal
At a time when our nation is at war and fear abounds in the world, I was visited by a cardinal who sat for a time this morning on a limb outside my window.

An old friend, Sister Alice, has been a nun and biology professor for many years. She once told me that whenever she sees a cardinal, her first thought is of God. Since then, whenever I've seen a cardinal, I've thought of God and said a prayer of gratitude for the beauty of cardinals, for the opportunity to live, love, and learn, and for God's love of each of us and for all of creation.

May a cardinal visit you tomorrow, may we each be still and know inner peace, and may there soon be an end to war.
