New Life in the Church?

Could Spring be on the way?

The eternal curiosity of the young! Here is today’s picture of our grandchild, William, searching for more early buds on the limbs of our magnolia in the back garden. He is just amazed at the prospect of incipient new life coming from such an unpromising environment.

Perhaps this is a paradigm for the Church – new life coming from the unpromising substance of our present uncertainties. God be praised!
