Healing Light

How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all of its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its being; otherwise we all remain too frightened.

Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky, Love Poems from God

Extravagant Generosity

The extravagant generosity of nature

The extravagant generosity of nature

Being extravagantly generous is an enchanting way to become holy and Godlike, for God is awesomely extravagant — as is revealed by even a casual glance at creation.

Where Do You Stand Today?

Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

As we enter this New Year, let us be open – with joy – to the mystery of how our lives will unfold.

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.

The Feast of the Holy Family

May the Word of God find a home in you

May the Word of God find a home in you

From today’s second reading, Colossians 3:

Let the message of Christ, in all its richness, find a home with you. Teach each other, and advise each other, in all wisdom. With gratitude in your hearts sing psalms and hymns and inspired songs to God; and never say or do anything except in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Merry Christmas

Blessing to you this Christmas
