Fruits of the Spirit

Realy-Cultivating Gods Garden 300by Margaret Rose Realy, Obl. OSB

When I think of the Fruits of the Spirit I compare them to a prism in the window. When sunlight enters in and bends as it exits, a rainbow becomes visible. But the metaphor here is not about the worn phrase that we are a beautiful rainbow of many hues. The analogy I am going for is that we are the prism in which God bends Himself through us.

From intro to reflections for the Second Week of Lent p 41,Cultivating God’s Garden through Lent, available on line through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the publisher Patheos Press.
