One Important Thing

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.

– Etty Hillesum

Have Patience

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.

– Saint Francis de Sales

Let’s go . . . Nowhere

Going nowhere … isn’t about turning your back on the world; it’s about stepping away now and then so that you can see the world more clearly and love it more deeply.

-Leonard Cohen

See the World

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.

– Ray Bradbury

Spirit is with Us

Today is the Third Sunday of Lent

I love the story of the woman at the well in the Gospel of John – there is so much to reflect on – so many nuggets of wisdom. These words of Jesus offer such promise, “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship God in Spirit and truth; and indeed God seeks people to worship in this way. God is Spirit, and those who worship must worship in Spirit and truth.”

Even during Lent – even in our darker days – the Spirit is with us.

With What Am I Willing to Struggle in 2016?

When we ask ourselves what kind of world we want to leave behind, we think in the first place of its general direction, its meaning and its values. Unless we struggle with these deeper issues, I do not believe that our concern for ecology will produce significant results.

– Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 160

Contemplation of the Beauty of Earth

It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.
