The seasons of creation invite us to embrace the transformative journey of life both personally and communally.
“Autumn is a place where words fall short. It is a magic that must be felt, breathed, experienced, and treasured.”
― Laura Jaworski
As we celebrate the season of fall and gently make space for winter, let us embrace the full landscape of our personal and communal lives. The beauty that we see in the vivid colors of our autumn canvas is a reminder of the sacredness of each life. And as the leaves take flight, we are gifted with the unobstructed vision to see the essence and complexity in all of life.
Pope Francis so exquisitely gives voice to the wholeness of life when he says: “Each of us shines like a star in the heart of God and in the fulfillment of the universe. At the same time though, we are called to form constellations that can guide and light the path of humanity, beginning with the places in which we live.”
During this holy season, how might the Divine be calling each of us to respond to the most vulnerable within our families, our communities, and our world?
With Caring and Grateful Hearts,
