During these days of physical distancing we’ve had glimpses of our interconnectedness – of our interdependence – of the need for all of us to support the common good of, not only the human family, but of all of our Earth family. So I thought I would begin adding another post, every Friday, entitled, Wakening to Oneness.
May we awaken, one eyelid at a time.
It is my hope that all the children, the children of the deer and the wolf, the whale and other marine forms of life; the children of the osprey and the bluebird and the butterfly; the children of the oak and the pine and the dogwood; the children all together with the human children will go into the future in oneness “as a single sacred community.”
– Thomas Berry
Honor the tradition but expand the understanding. That’s what religions must do right now if they hope to be helpful to humans in the years ahead.
– Neale Donald Walsch, Tomorrow’s God
On this Feast of Catherine, we look back on her life in the 14th century, knowing that she would live differently in the 21st. And so we honor her life and tradition as we, too, desire to be of service to God’s people today . . . in hope for a tomorrow full of promise.
