The Weight of the Word

She had never held a book before and here she was holding THE book. THE Word of God. Could she feel the weight, the power, the love exuding from within? She pointed to every person and thing turning around expectantly to learn the sign for everything! She was eager to learn language, eager to learn the Word of God!

Unexpected Blessings

During a week where we are especially reflecting on our blessings, consider this Franciscan Benediction:

“May God bless us with discomfort
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that we may live from deep within our hearts.

May God bless us with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of God’s creations
So that we may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

May God bless us with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war,
So that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and
To turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless us with just enough foolishness
To believe that we can make a difference in the world,
So that we can do what others claim cannot be done:
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and all our neighbors who are poor.
Amen.”

Jumping with Trust

This girl demonstrates so many truths about God to us each time we see her.

Without remark, she runs with all her heart. Arms flung open, she jumps with great trust that you will catch her.

In the same way God wants us to run this race we call “life”, with grand abandonment to what is going on around us, trusting that the Father we are running towards will catch us with His strong and loving arms!
