Our God chooses to make himself known through the sixth sense of hope these days. If we must have more concrete means of knowing whether he is both good and strong, he provides as such. The bread and wine taste like forgiveness; faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God; abiding with Christ emits a fragrance as sweet and refreshing as fresh-cut grass. A joy-filled life is its own earthy, delightful incense. His Body gives more than a holy kiss—it offers a loving hug and a helping hand. This is not only touch, it is touching. Such are the paths of light by which a soul surrounded by darkness may see. And such is the sense of hope, by which a soul may breathe and dream.
