A Meditation before Easter

by Jack Fowler

Dear Morning Jolt Readers,

The offices of National Review are closed in observance of Good Friday. Or, as it is now formally known in Bloomington, Indiana, thanks to Mayor John Hamilton’s determined leftism, “Spring Holiday.”

Father, forgive him, even though he knoweth precisely what he doeth.

In 1987, D. Keith Mano, our late friend who wrote the magazine’s beloved “The Gimlet Eye” column, penned a beautiful reflection titled “A Meditation after Easter.” We find Keith’s piece is also appropriate before Easter, and encourage you to read it, here.

God bless,

Jack Fowler
