Weekly Reflection

  • Earth Day

    Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space.

    That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God. (James Irwin, Apollo astronaut)

  • To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.  (Wendell Berry)

  • The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, his boundless affection for us. Soil, water, mountains: everything is, as it were, a caress of God.  (Pope Francis)

  • Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.  (Saint John Paul II)

  • You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.  (Maya Angelou)

  • There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there. (Indira Gandhi)

  • Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself. (Eleanor Roosevelt)

  • What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. (Jane Goodall)

  • It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent. (Madeleine Albright)

  • Knowing what must be done does away with fear. (Rosa Parks)
