A Rose in God's Image
The Gospel this weekend brought some clarity to me about Rose. It was the Gospel about give to Caesar what is Caesar's. Give to God what is God's. And what is God's? We are. We are made in the image and likeness of God. Each face reflects God's very face. That is the test of love to see God's face in the face that can no longer respond or love or react. Rose is valuable because she lives and has God's face. Only God can choose the day and hour to call her home to Him.
Until that hour arrives, we are all given the task to love. To learn what love is. To see the very face of God in the least of His children.
