Spring has sprung. My herb garden looks wild and very healthy. Everything is growing and growing so fast I can almost see it.
I wish I had time to stop and watch it.
I have been busy. Not, I'm so self-important and stressed out busy, but wonderfully busy. Like a bee.
That reminds me, since it is still the Easter season, of what took my attention at the Easter Vigil this year. It was the bees.
The Deacon sings the Exultet at the beginning of the Mass. In the second half of the hymn he presents the Paschal Candle, or Easter Candle, which burns in the Church all through the Easter Season, and through the year on Solemn occasions such as Baptisms. This is what he sings.
