The Most Practical Virtue

Hope in the planting

As we face the grand ecological crisis of our time, our most important renewable resource is hope. We simply must put it on with our shoes each morning.

Today is the First Sunday of Advent

Our Advent Journey begins with the Gospel reading from Mark 13:33-37

We all live in the shadow of both beauty and disaster. How attentive is our watching?

We all live in the shadow of both beauty and disaster. How attentive is our watching?

Jesus said to his disciples:”Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. It is like a man traveling abroad. He leaves home and places his servants in charge,  each with his own work, and orders the gatekeeper to be on the watch. Watch, therefore; you do not know when the Lord of the house is coming, whether in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning. May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping.

What I say to you, I say to all: ‘Watch!'”
