Watchmen of the Night

There is breaking news, tonight, of a “credible and specific but unconfirmed” terror threat.

Which isn’t surprising. Al Qaeda is being pummeled and probably feels like it is still a force to be reckoned with. Who didn’t expect some sort of credible threat?

I thought, with that in the air, it’s a good time to remember that there are people who get up, in the middle of the night, when the rest of us are asleep, or deeply in our sins, to pray for us — for the whole world.

And this is beautiful; even if you do not believe, or you do not agree, you cannot deny beauty, and maybe you’ll even feel consoled. So why fight it?
