Jesus said, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Now the seed is buried in the soil.  All we can do is await the gift of its fecundity. “Tomorrow the Son of Man will walk in a garden through drifts of apple blossom” (George Mackay Brown).

I once visited the tomb of Bishop Pierre Claverie in Oran, Algeria.  He was murdered in 1996 for his opposition to violence and because he promoted friendship between Muslims and Christians. His tomb has become a place of pilgrimage for Christians and Muslims alike. On it are often placed flowers. God’s grace brings springtime for every one of us.

– Timothy Radcliffe – Stations of the Cross
