The Sacred Moment

The Sacred Moment

The Sacred Moment There is no moment that is better than any other when it comes to the reality of God's place in it all. Each event asks of us a response, that is either rooted in love, or in our desire to control, or to place ourselves above others. In the sacred moment we or face to face with the infinite. God's 'Yes". Joy is found there, not just happiness, which comes and goes, but joy comes from a place that can only flow from God's heart. To be present to 'this' moment is perhaps

Even our enemies

Even our enemies

Even to our enemies   In prayer, as our relationship with God deepens and trust grows as well, fear is let go of and we become living icons of God in the world. We become channels of his love towards all without exception, even to our enemies; our hearts expand in order to be able to truly experience and understand this reality. The fire of the Holy Spirit purifies us and as we grow in self-knowledge, so does our openness, our availability to be used by God in our lives. It is grace, this expa

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama

A beautiful moment 55 years ago in Panama I am often amazed how certain experiences will stay with me.   I know that most of my life is consigned to my unconscious and stays there forever.  Then some experiences stay with me for some reason.   This is one of those seemingly very simple ordinary events that was imprinted into my soul.  We moved into Gulick Heights in December 1958.  I liked it there and what I loved most was that it was surrounded by jungle.  Not wild jungle, but there we

Those Who Have A Problem With Many Others

Many people are easy to get along with.  Then their are others who struggle in this area. Some individuals who I know are basically good, nice people.  But at the same time, they don't get along with so many others and have a problem with just about everyone.  And they like to complain about others a lot too. So with that said, here's my question: if they have a problem with so many people and don't get along with most others, don't they realize that maybe they are the ones with the pr

Parakeet Peekaboo

My next door neighbours have a hole in the eaves of their house. For a while I have suspected that the pair of parakeets that I regularly see in a nearby tree are living in this hole. I now know for certain.   Peekaboo!

The love of family and friends

The love of family and friends

The love of family and friends   Br. Philip gave the chapter talk this morning after mass. He is our sub-prior or 'third superior'. His talk this morning was not written down, but he talked from the heart.   At this time his family is going through a rough time. His father has stage 4 lung cancer. It is hard on Philip because he can't be with his father at this time because of the lockdown. The sad situation I am sure is being lived out by thousands nationwide at this time.   His family i

More views from a small garden

As the sun began to set the robin returned. Flying from tree to tree he sang until it was dark .     Initially the parakeets seemed to have fallen in with human society and had taken up social distancing.     As the sun began to set, however, they once again paired up.     Nearby a magpie’s white breast reflected the red rays of the setting sun.   All too soon it was no longer light enough to photograph the wildlife.

Views from a small garden

I have a tiny garden in a housing estate in the suburbs of London. That doesn’t mean there is nothing to see. This afternoon the song of a blackbird attracted my attention, so I headed out into my garden with my camera. The blackbird was in a tree across the road from me. As he sang his heart out I took pictures.     As I took pictures of the blackbird I became aware that he wasn’t alone. My old friends the parakeets were back. They were preening each other, f

What plants teach me

What plants teach me

What plants teach me   I am not much for forest, or lots of scenery, but find rest in the plants that I have in my room. Simple plants, easy to take care of, but to me so beautiful, rooted in the moment, seemingly always at rest.   Some plants I have had for many years, they just grow, get deeper roots, and I change the water from time to time, and fee . I believe my soul is a little like that always at rest, watching, my roots growing deeper with each passing day, and God's grace waterin

How I'm Coping With The Virus

How are you coping during the coronavirus pandemic?  I'm coping pretty well with it. One reason that I'm coping well with the virus is because I'm not watching the news about it on the TV a great deal.  I'm watching the news some so I can be informed about the virus.  And I think that's smart. However, I'm not watching the news a great deal, as I don't want to get all worried and panicked about the virus because of it.  For me, their's a happy medium.

Teens Can Be The Hardest To Get Through To

Teenagers aren't adults yet.  They have a lot to learn about life.  And many of them think that they already know everything (although I don't believe all of them think that). As probably any therapist will tell you, teenagers are the hardest to get through to, in general. But despite that, lots of them can be helped.  Many teens will listen to helpful advice given by adults, including teens who are battling mental illness.  Lots of them can be reasoned with.  Not all of them are super

A growing sadness and frustration

A growing sadness and frustration “We must not let hope abandon us, because God, with his love, walks with us. “I hope, because God is beside me”: we can all say this. Each one of us can say: “I hope, I have hope, because God walks with me.” He walks and he holds my hand. God does not leave us to ourselves. The Lord Jesus has conquered evil and has opened the path of life for us.”—Pope Francis I am starting to feel some sadness, as well as frustration over the present crisis.  I a

Instructor Took Her Profession Very Seriously

Back in the early 2000's, I attended a community college as a Human Services major. One of the first classes I attended was taught by a Social Worker/Therapist (a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, or LCSW).  And one of the first things she told the class is that she takes teaching her profession as well as working in her profession very seriously. Although she expected a lot from her students such as myself, I didn't think what was required in order to do well in her class was unusually

Mercy Sunday 2020

Today a special day showing us God’s true desire (Mercy Sunday 2020) I am reliving these moments with Our Lady.  With great longing, I am waiting for the Lord’s coming.  Great are my desires.  I desire that all humankind come to know the Lord.  I would like to prepare all nations for the coming of the Word Incarnate.  O Jesus, make the fount of Your mercy gush forth more abundantly, for humankind is seriously ill and thus has more need than ever of Your compassion.  You are a bottomless sea o

Compassionate Landlord

Compassionate Landlord

Compassionate Landlord The culture of prosperity deadens us; we are thrilled if the market offers us something new to purchase; and in the meantime all those lives stunted for lack of opportunity seem a mere spectacle; they fail to move us. Pope Francis I have always thought that being an owner of a motel would be a very difficult life.  Dealing with the public is never easy since you are dealing with people from many diverse back grounds, as well as situations that can often be dire.
