Easter Meditation – “I saw the red flame of the kingly sun”
Quote from Thomas Merton’s Journal
Hidden by pines and cedars to the east, I saw the red flame of the kingly sun glaring through the black trees, not like dawn but like a forest fire.
Then the sun became distinguished as a person,
and he shone silently and with solemn power through the branches,
and the whole world was silent and calm.
