...the sweetness of the Holy Spirit is boundless and swift
to encompass all creatures in grace
its path is a torrent and streams of sanctity flow from it in its bright power
the Holy Spirit itself is a burning and shining serenity
Hildegard of Bingen
Today I'm grateful for: Kurt's hard-won sobriety - may it continue; the opportunities for care and service which daily present themselves; fun and interesting people Twittering; the beauty of the unfolding spring; the people I live with; the ability to connect with people on other continents in real time via the internet; calm and serenity.
Holding in prayer today: Amy and family; Graham nearing the end of his life; J&J in their new marriage; certain fear-filled people; immigrants struggling to find a place in the U.S. despite the many difficult and unnecessary roadblocks; MK, JK, PC, and others recovering from surgeries; LS who needs to find a way to get more sleep; MF and DO facing surgeries; CM and others beginning radiation treatments; women discerning religious life; Sisters of St. Joseph in Burkina Faso.
