Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

Earth Belongs to All Living Creatures – Not Just Humans

To all earth’s creatures God has given the broad earth, the springs, the rivers and the forests, giving the air to the birds, and the waters to those who live in water, giving abundantly to all the basic needs of life, not as a private possession, not restricted by law, not divided by boundaries, but as common to all, amply and in rich measure.

– Gregory of Nazianzus

Wednesday of Hope – Hope Is the Way

– Joanna Macy

Wednesday of Hope – Virtue

Hope is not merely a feeling. Hope is a virtue, a firmly established attitude of the heart, a basic bearing of the whole person.

– David Steindl-Rast

The World Is Created by Love

I believe that the world was created and approved by love, that it subsists, coheres, and endures by love, and that, insofar as it is redeemable, it can be redeemed only by love.

– Wendell Berry

The Poetry of Life

There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it.

– Gustave Flaubert

Wednesday of Hope – Forgiving

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

– Lewis B. Smedes
