I was reading a review today earlier in THE LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS.
The commentary about Immaculate Mother, Mary, contained
a medieval message of hope which I will quote here, being as it's
a nourishing bit for all comers, religious or otherwise:

"The dew of Averil, id est gracia et bonitas Spiritus Sancti;
Haveth y-maked the grene lef to spryng, id est Beatam Virginem
...My sorrow is gon...My joye is comen...Ich herde a soul synge,
id est angelum...Ave Maria."

Happy Passover, happy Easter, happy days to enliven all of YOU,
regardless of affiliation. Read a book and be well. J/C
