However, in these days ...

Meeting otherness

When you meet the other, whoever they are, stop. Just stop. Stop long enough to become present to their being as a door to Divine Presence. When you meet the other, whoever they are, bow. Just bow. Bow low enough to reverence their being as a gift held in existence by Divine Love. When you meet the other, whoever they ...

Prayer

Yesterday I read a beautiful piece from Global Sisters Report (GSR).  The theme of this feature piece is: ‘The Life: In prayer, sisters find the unconditional love of God’. In it the panellists share a variety of approaches that help bring them into union with God.  […] But all approaches ultimately involve a personal encounter of love, a contemplative experience with ...

There is something  about the juxtaposition of death and life in Holy Week that seems to be mirrored in these times, against a world landscape of events where it is as if the stability and certainly of all things that we took for granted ‘as always being there’ is being pushed to its limits. I had a conversation with a ...

Making Maps

I have always loved maps.  Maps of any kind always appealed to both my imagination and my desire to be able to see the whole landscape – not just to be anchored in one place.  Maps are very often the starting point for getting to know other peoples, where and how they live, what they eat as well as how ...

From Acorn to Oak

This time of extended light and emerging buds (bachlóga) allows one to notice and stop in wonder at each semblance of new life appearing out of nature’s harvesting of autumn fruits with their seeds, and their hidden, slow nourishment during winter days.
