|A Prayer Diary
Coronation of the Virgin, by Bicci di Lorenzo (1430)
This morning I lit a candle (the one the right) for a friend who is having surgery. Sometimes the only thing we can do for someone is pray, but that is a mighty act if you are graced to believe in prayer. I like that there is another candle next to mine, a candle lit by someone praying for someone in need. Candles flickering together in community, the light of God shining. What a hopeful image in the midst of all the suffering in the world.
