Pray for miracles

March 25th, this year, is Good Friday. While the Triduum on the temporal calendar takes precedence this year, March 25th is usually observed on the sanctoral calendar as the Solemnity of the Annunciation of Our Lord. And this year, March 25th marks the 10-year anniversity of the release of Pope John Paul II's Encyclical Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life). In other words, March 25th is a day for heaven-sent messenges of one sort or another, and particularly this year, when we see on that date "the Son of Man raised up." It's sensible to hope for a miracle of some sort or another regarding Terri Schiavo, since the time is truly apt for this struggle to come to a head. Pray all the more fervently that God's may use this evil and turn it to good, and that whatever tidings come our way on March 25th, we see in them a reflection somehow of God's will for our world.
