The river itself

“In centering prayer we begin to shift our attention 
from the boats and objects on the surface to the river itself. 
The river in this analogy has no qualities or characteristics. 
It is spiritual and limitless because it is a participation in God’s being.”
-Thomas Keating, Open Mind, Open Heart

Happy All Saints Day!

For all the Saints

1 For all the saints who from their labors rest,
who Thee by faith before the world confessed;
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

2 Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true Light.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

3 O blest communion, fellowship divine!
We feebly struggle, they in glory shine;
yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

4 And when the strife is fierce, the warfare long,
steals on the ear the distant triumph song,
and hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

5 But when there breaks a yet more glorious day;
the saints triumphant rise in bright array;
the King of glory passes on His way.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

6 From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast,
through gates of pearl streams in the countless host,
in praise of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Alleluia, Alleluia!

Do not be daunted

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that

“Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. 
We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love...
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. 
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” 
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
