You can see I’m not much of a blogger, or at least not right now. Being 60 years old and having two young children can significantly reduce one’s personal time. But I have made this blog about my calling and I must say that I still feel that same call to this work. This is sacred work and it is a special kind of midwifery that enters into the mystery of mortality and life’s temporality and the gift of faith.
When life is coming to an end, there is really only one thing to hold on to, I think. But I’ve never been there. It would have to be faith: faith in what is unseen and yet promised.
It means we must turn our face toward love: the love that brought us into the world and the love that brings us into its eternal embrace.
