Miryam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, was the epitome of a strong woman. She was sister, composer, musician, dancer, prophet and leader. She is the one who probably composed the Exodus 15 canticle that celebrates the deliverance of God's people from the slavery of the Egyptians. This is a photo taken in the Zin Wilderness, where Miryam died, and where we spent time in prayer. You can feel her spirit there. It gives new life and a new memory to her canticle which we sing every year at the Easter Vigil:

"I am free, I will sing to the Lord, triumphant is He, the horse and chariot He cast into the sea."
