Back to The Priest's Housekeeper, this paragraph at the end really got me:
Could it be that your Epiphany was the day you looked down at your first born and saw the wonder of new life. Maybe it was the time you kept vigil at the beside of a loved one who was dying and you experienced the sorrow of parting, but also joy that death is not the end. Perhaps it was that day you said, “I love you” and knew that it was about more than just romance or physical attraction. Or could it have been the moment you really believed your life was sacred, and you gave it gladly in the service of Our Lord?
These are milestones, the stories of our lives, epiphanies that forever change who we are, how we live, and the road we travel. They are moments of ordinary everyday life in which divinity is revealed in humanity and we see God’s glory face to face.
