The Lamb is the Light

"The Lamb is the light of the city of God...". Singing this line from the Episcopal Hymnal this morning I thought of the tragic death of Nicola Calipari.

This man who orchestrated the release of Italian journalist, Giuliana Sgrena, apparently made the ultimate sacrifice just when he must have felt home-free. When, for whatever reason, the vehicle carrying the just released Sgrena came under American attack, Calipari used his body as a human shield to save his charge.

There is no greater love than this.

An heroic act of humanity in the midst of violent chaos. I have hope still for us, this humankind.
