In Los Angeles, Paul, a new immigrant to the U.S, talked with his friend about the beauty of the flower show that attracts many. The next day he turned on the black and white T.* to enjoy the show. Paul noticed that his friend was bored.
“What do you think of the show?”
“It is surprising that thousands crowd the roads to watch the show.”
“Isn’t it a beautiful and wondrous show?”
“I can’t smell the flowers and I can’t see their beauty.”
Paul became silent a bit and realized his mistake that he did not take his friend to the road to watch the parade in person that he may see its beauty with all its beautiful colors and gorgeous arrangement.
At once he asked his friend to come along with him in his car and he took him to a place near one of the roads where the parade goes by and they descended to go between the public assembled to enjoy the parade.
Truly how often we carry the name of Jesus Christ without His habitation, so that we neither carry His nice smell nor the beauty of His presence. Let us truly be participants in the parade ascending to heaven to rest in the bosom of the Father and not offer a show as the one through the television without smell or true Divine presence.
