“Joy is Creative.” Ranier Maria Rilke
July is the month of the Precious Blood. In our home, the icon of Christ in the Chalice is prominent. In the icon, He sits inside a chalice, arms out – and enthusiastic welcome; “here I am!” He says. His enthusiasm is catching. I love this icon, Christ looks to me like a man playing peek-a-boo with a child, serious and joyful: Where is Jesus, here He is!
