BEAUTY WILL LEAD US HOME......IF WE ARE SILENT LONG ENOUGH
I become more and more aware daily of how foolish we are in the presence of the source of all things, often referred to as God. So many things are attached to God, and said about God, and hung around God's neck by people who think they know. Much of it just feels really messed up. I love the encouragement and advice that came from the lips of St Francis having to do with this reality.......the way we live and act towards others is our greatest witness. Not what we speak.
Being humbled to where we speak less about God to where the mystery and otherness are allowed to build around it again, and instead to just learn how to be wastefully generous towards others as creation seems to indicate the creator is towards all of us and all created things......just seems to be a more respectful and proper way for us humans to live before it all.
