Have you ever seen this picture?
I was sent an email that contained this picture this morning.
Sometimes God sends both a man and a woman to call his people to holiness.
Benedict and Scholastica
Francis and Claire
Mary and Jesus
Our generation has these: John Paul the Great and Mother Teresa. One fell the scourge of communism. The other served the poor in India one person at a time. The influence of both will be felt for generations.
What I really like about this picture is the joy reflected in their faces. I get the sense that they aren't Brad and Angelina posing for paparazzi. They are expressing the hope that is inherent in their life of faith.
