Postcard from Down South

Blessed is the servant who loves his brother as much when he is sick and useless as when he is well and can be of service to him. And blessed is he who loves his brother as well when he is afar off as when he is by his side, and who would say nothing behind his back he might not, in love, say before his face. ~St Francis of Assisi

(Sunset on the Gulf of Mexico, reminding us how close we are to God, and one another. Blessed Easter, joyous Passover.)
