A homesless man rises.
Christ is risen.

Thank you, Angelika. Blessings of the season to you and yours.

I was going for two things here: (1) The contrast between religious transcendence and social reality, and (2) the Christian call to look for Jesus in everyone, everywhere. I appreciate your thoughtful response.
