Marilyn McAuley writes about a little girl who was visiting her grandmother. One evening the two of them were outside enjoying the brilliance of the stars in the sky. The young girl lived in the city, where the lights made it more difficult to appreciate the beauty of the night sky. The granddaughter marveled at the spectacular sight she was seeing for the first time. She was in awe when she said to her grandmother, “If heaven is so beautiful on the wrong side, what must it be like on the right side?”
Someday we will be able to answer that question. In the meantime, we will just keep on pondering.
