"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

Another French " cloudburst" from a few years ago taken on a mobile phone from a moving vehicle!
A decidedly "secular" entry on the blog today.
The You Tube video is Eric Whitacre's "Cloudburst."
I'm posting it in honour (if that's the right word - no, it obviously isn't) of the storm, called Tempete Xynthia, which hit the Vendee last weekend. There may be no posts for a few days next week as I take some leave to go to investigate the damage & put things in order!
