The destiny of humans cannot be separated from the destiny of Earth.

Wednesday of Hope – Ash Wednesday

On this Ash Wednesday, what more can we hope to be than this?

Strive to be uncynical, to be a hope-giving force, to be a steward of substance.

Wednesday of Hope – Building Hope

Song of the Builders

On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God –

a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside

this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope

it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.

~ Mary Oliver ~
(Why I Wake Early)

Nature Reflects God’s Glorious Majesty

Thursday’s Responsorial Psalm is Psalm 145

Generation after generation praises your works
and proclaims your might.
They speak of the splendor of your glorious majesty
and tell of your wondrous works.
