the very sigh that silence heaves

Holy Saturday Reflection from Madeliene L'Engle:

For the Christian, the butterfly has long been a symbol of resurrection. The butterfly emerges from the cocoon, its wings, wet with rebirth, slowly opening, and then this creature of fragile loveliness flies across the blue vault of the sky.
Butterflies and angels, seraphim and cherubim, calls us earth-bound creatures to lift up our mortal dust and sing with them to God's delight.
