A LENTEN JOURNEY: FROM COSMIC DUST TO EASTER GARDEN

Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us, and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs. --St. Francis of Assisi

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of Infinity. Life is Eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient. It is a little parenthesis in Eternity. If we share with caring, light-heartedness, and love, we will create abundance and joy for each other. And then this moment will have been worthwhile.” --Deepak Chopra

Diarmuid O’Murchu says: ‘Lent is a time not for giving up but for taking on, a time to be re-connected with a heart that has been made tender by truth. Contrary to an asceticism that diminishes, Quantum Grace (by Judy Cannato) invites us to an aestheticism that enlarges the horizons of our journey into God’.Lent is an ideal season to care for God’s earth and take action that will honour Christ’s teachings to work on behalf of the most vulnerable. Let us engage into the spiritual discipline of putting compassion into action, allowing ourselves to reconnect with the Cosmic Christ, journey from cosmic dust to easter garden.
