A Cache-Cache Moment

sagrada-familia-cathedrale-concue-par-gaudi-pendant-la-nuit-barcelone-espagneA very good friend just texted me from Barcelona while visiting Gaudi church:  Sagrada Familia.

She says, “Holà, …La Sagrada Familia is so meaningful, so Jesus centered that I can not help the tears welling up in my eyes. My husband must think the pregnancy has truly gotten to me, but it is only the beauty and strength of the Holy Spirit that has refreshed and revived the way I feel about the blessing of architecture.”

Isn’t it amazing, this ability of art to zap us with transcendent moments like this? That we can be so profoundly and deeply inspired to tears….not by words from a sermon or from a holy book, but by stones and mortar? I’m not sure how it works, nor why, nor when…..but I’m so very glad it does happens….even vicariously through a friend.

A few days after cache-cache….

Quote

….I wrote these words…

May gratitude walk beside you
May kindness swarm about your head
May wonder be your inner child
May transcendence visit often

May joy dance upon your shoulders
May love be your closest friend
May peace remain beyond its welcome
May laughter keep your cheeks in shape

May sun shine while you’re in shade
May clouds paint your sky with fun
May rain fall once you’ve returned home
May night send you pleasant dreams

May color startle you
May smell remind you
May touch warm you
May words encourage you
May music inspire you

And so may God be kind to you
