What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is the Catholic way of imagining reality and responding to the world with a profoundly deep sense of awe and responsibility.
An icon is not merely a holy picture. Its meaning goes deeper than the surface reality to the spiritual reality of matter transformed.
Dawn dispels the darkness...
The universe beats to your pace and rhythm Lord. May my life and soul share your breath and heartbeat always.
Lord, your love wells up to surround me and make me safe. Let me drink of your love now and always, Amen.
