Of Agony And Ecstasy 

The veil is thinning for my brother. As he flutters between the holy and our visible reality, his face of newfound love and the soon loss of profound hearts of family and friendship that hedges his death bed is a gift those surrounding him can but only guess.  As God allows my brother glimpses beyond the blurred window in which curiosity and faith can only wonder in witnessing one thing now evident: this face of Christ that shone upon His Mother, friends, and others. As finality approaches to the heavy tears blurring this loyal gathering for so steady a man that brought their hearts to his bedside. Truly towards my brother’s final moment- only love remains.

Love and newfound love has lifted this little world of agony and ecstasy knowing the sting of mortality has not just been numbed but conquered.

‘ Til tomorrow comes and that day we laugh again, we are with you brother, Micheal John.

His peace,

  1. Beautiful words!!! I continue to pray for Michael, your sister, you and your family. Christ is peace in the midst of this terrible suffering… asleep in each of our boats tossed about in our various storms of life. Read the depth of Matthew for those who are curious. What does Matthew tell us? Focus not on the “reality” of these storms but focus on The One who clearly demonstrates power over these storms. Who dares to “sleep” in the face of apparent devastation? Christ of course does this who is eager to demonstrate to each and every one of us that he is The One who can us give true peace. True Peace is not absence of conflict, torment or suffering but true peace is found in the true submission to the Love of our Father… the truest Love of all Love.
