A Door to a New Beginning

John O’Donohue, while not specifically inviting us to open a new window or new door, does beckon us to move forward into what is “not yet clear” in his poem, “For a New Beginning.” The following is one stanza:

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Sr. Arlene Flaherty at the door to St. Dominic's house in Fanjeaux, France. Does this door beckon you?

Sister Arlene is a Dominican Sister of Blauvelt, NY.
