Sr. Amapola took this photo recently from the yard of the Sister's house. How could I resist using it ? So I looked to see if St. Faustina had something to say about rainbows...
I know that I am under Your special gaze, O Lord.
I do not examine with fear Your plans
my task is to accept everything from Your hand.
I do not fear anything,
although the storm is raging, and frightful bolts strike all around me,
and I then feel quite
Yet, my heart senses You, and my trust grows,
and I see all Your omnipotence
which upholds me.
With You, Jesus, I go through life, amid storms and rainbows,
cry of joy, singing the song of Your mercy.
I will not stop singing my song of love until the
choir of Angels picks it up. (#761)
"Divine Mercy In My Soul"
The Diary of St. Faustina
And then this gem---nothing to do with rainbows --- from my new favorite book...
"The blessing of the priest is a great means
by which good is made to triumph over evil,
love over hatred and mercy over judgment.
Similarly, the blessing given with
the relics of My saints pleases Me much.
I am glorified in My saints,
and I pass through them
to distribute the riches of My Heart
in the universe of souls."
