What is God like? God is like when your grandmother holds you as a child and feeds you. God is like when you find a twenty dollar bill in your coat pocket at the beginning of a new winter. God is like when your sports team loses the game but you are so proud of the way they played. God is like when you decide to jump off the diving board for the very first time. God is like when you reach for the apple slices instead of the bag of potato chips. God is like when you go for a very long walk. God is like when you are talking to a person and understand exactly what they mean. God is like when you get up from your desk to go play with your friends. God is like when you take a break during a very stressful day. God is like when you harvest vegetables from your garden. God is like when your head hits the pillow at night. God is like when you smile at a stranger. God is like when you realize that you are breathing. May the great AVE CRUX SPES UNICA be locked into place in our minds and hearts so that we might never experience another “when” in this life without feeling absolutely close to the God who saves. Ave Crux, Spes Unica.
