Bruce Herman, in the essay “Wounds and Beauty,” captures well what is happening to me. He says, “Only eyes continually trained by gazing at the cross—only eyes cleansed by that second innocence, childlike habitual charity—can see true beauty—true goodness.”[i] As God is transforming me, as I more and more glimpse the gift of the cross and God’s himself, I am overwhelmed by his beauty and goodness and love.
