The Kindness of Strangers

St. John of God, Patron Saint of Book Sellers and Heart Patients
As I drove through the to-go lane at Dunkin’ Donuts the other day, I noticed the face in the rear view mirror of the car in front of me. Although the woman was youthful, there was something serious and perhaps even grieved about her expression. I thought about her as I placed my order, wondering what type of life she might lead. When I reached the window for my order, I was told that she had paid for it. How amazing and how unexpectedly kind! I reconsidered her face and wondered if it might be the face of an angel?
