When I was younger, I would mow the lawn with ear mufflers on. It was a time to be with God and my own thoughts. Quiet time with lawnmower accompaniment. Once–just once and barely for a minute–I had a very quiet Epiphany. I remember it as if it were yesterday. I had turned a corner on the front lawn and all of a sudden everything made sense. Everything seemed to fit together–the existence of God, his infinite love, the passion and death and resurrection of Christ, the trustworthiness of the Church, my own weakness and sin and God’s healing and forgiveness. It was as if the Nicene Creed we are about to recite fell like a little seed into my heart and grew into a fully blooming certainty. It was amazing.
