Creed

“I believe…” is faith without doubt. “I believe…” is not a statement of fact. The truth must be shared. It is the idea I live and die for. It is in dialogue.   Faith is not enough, belief fulfills us – beyond space and time, right here and right now.   Our creed’s avowal fosters […]

Wellness (Psalm 23)

Our Lady is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. I rest assured with Her in green pastures, She leads me to placid pools, She restores my soul.   She guides me with flawless bearing to be renewed and refreshed. even though I walk through the valley of naughting,   I will not abide […]

Here I Am

Am I here? Distracted by cold, by heat, by noise, by quiet, by glare, by darkness.   Called to change, I obey direction. I must be different, and will never be the same. I am on the way.   Here I am! Present with warmth, with chill, with silence, with still, with reflection, with light. […]
