Lewis: the coming of union

Friday, May 21, 2010
    Feast of Commemoration of Helena, Protector of the Faith, 330
    How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
    —Psalm 133:1 (NIV)
    I sometimes have a bright dream of reunion engulfing us unawares, like a great wave from behind our backs, perhaps at the very moment when our official representatives are still pronouncing it impossible. Discussions usually separate us; actions sometimes unite us.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, New York: Harcourt Brace and World, 1964, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002, p. 16 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    The world separates; You, Lord, unite.
