So, what do you all think of a red-tailed (I think) hawk sitting on your deck railing? Who flew away 2 times only to return again. Not high in a tree, but just outside your kitchen window sitting on your deck railing.
I am not Tiresias, but I think it is a good sign. Hawks are like princes. Eagles are like Kings. At my local Parish, Holy Child Jesus which we are trying to convert fully to tradition, there are two hawks who come to visit us. A male and a female. They like to perch on the Holy Cross atop the steeple and watch over the neighborhood. My Father always watches them. So If I had to guess the meaning of the sign I would say that it is a sign that Christ the King is watching over you and protecting you.
Once as I was walking in the forest with my Father to go look at the place of my Brother Patrick's death (where my father would plant flowers), we saw on of the hawks with a squirrel in her talons. The hawk slowly walked away out of our eyesight. I saw her with my own eyes. What is the meaning of that sign? I hope it is a sign of my brother's salvation, but perhaps that would be superstitious, I believe it was a grey squirrel and not a white one.
My Father likes to tell a story about a peregrine falcon her in New York City. They had a falcon and a falconer who protects Bryant Park in Manhattan from pests like rats and such. The hawk would fly above and come swooping down to devour any vermin. But one day the hawk made a mistake and killed a little dog, crushing her in his talons. And because of that one mistake they got rid of the falcon. As Yeats wrote and I love to quote: "Turning and turning in the wideninng gyre / The falcon cannot hear the falconer;". I heard that Yeats was an occultist.
The third time is significant, because ON the third day Christ rose again. I hope we are all praying that you are able to get to Mass more often. Or that you are strong enough to subsist without the Eucharist by making spiritual Communions.
