We always light a candle for Mack in the various churches we visit. Today we each lit a candle at Michaelerkirche circa 1217. The ancient church was a hub of activity today; you can see a guy carrying a ladder in the background of the photo, he climbed up to change lightbulbs while we were there. There was a choir practicing Gregorian chants and others helping folks at the Information Table. We sat for a while and enjoyed the energy.
I couldn’t help but reflect upon a quote I read earlier in the day from Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941):
In desperate hope I go and search for her in all the corners of my house. I find her not.
My house is small and what once has gone from it can never be regained.
But infinite is thy mansion, my Lord, and seeking her I have come to thy door.
