Snow Melt

“To those who live by faith, everything they see speaks of that future world; the very glories of nature, the sun, moon, and stars and the richness and the beauty of the earth, are as types and figures witnessing and teaching the invisible things of God. All we see is destined one day to burst forth into a heavenly bloom, and to be transfigured into immortal glory. Heaven at present is out of sight, but in due time, as snow melts and discovers what it lay upon, so will this visible creation fade away before those greater splendors which are behind it, and on which at present it depends.” ~Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman
