SUSAN ELIA MACNEAL: Today is Sunday and — perhaps — time for a moment of contemplation.
I don't believe in angels per se, but I like to think of kind words as "angel song," as Frederick William Faber did:
"Kind words are the music of the world. They have a power which seems to be beyond natural causes, as if they were some angel's song, which had lost its way and come on Earth, and sang on undyingly, smiting the hearts of men with sweetest wounds, and putting for the while an angel's nature into us."
And I'd like to think if I do have a guardian angel he/she/it would look something like the way Outsider artist Jon Stucky sees them:
Happy Sunday, everyone!
