Easter is on the way, but for the second year in a row it won’t be the Easter we know. Gone will be the family gatherings and the high holiday last-minute attendance at church services, whether through family obligation or some lingering guilt.

On the farm each noon, I hear the local church bells call out for the Angelus. It is a sweet reminder to take a moment of reflection in my day and while I don’t stop to pray, I do take a second to assess where the day has gone and how I’m living my life at that moment. It’s, I think, an opportunity for meditation in the modern world.
