Weekly Reflection

  • There is no worse material poverty than poverty which prevents people from earning their bread and deprives them of the dignity of work.  (Pope Francis)

  • The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of our planet.  (John F. Kennedy)

  • We have become great because of the lavish use of our resources.  But the time has come to inquire seriously what will happen when our forests are gone, when the coal, the iron, the oil and the gas are exhausted.    (Theodore Roosevelt)

  • The world tells us to seek success, power and money; God tells us to seek humility, service and love.   (Pope Francis)

  • Ask “What’s possible?” not “What’s wrong?”  Keep asking.  (Margaret Wheatley)

  • There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about.  (Margaret Wheatley)

  • We are called in this life to do only one thing and that is to continue the work of creation: to bring light everywhere we go.   (Joan Chittister, OSB)

  • There is a LIGHT in this world; a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways. (Robert Muller)

  • April 24

    When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.  (John Muir)

  • Earth Day – April 22

    As stewards of God’s creation, we are called to make the earth a beautiful garden for the human family. When we destroy our forests, ravage our soil and pollute our seas, we betray that noble calling.  (Pope Francis)

Christ healing... Christ consoling... Christ always aware of the needs of others.
