The light streaked in my window this morning and crept over my face. I kept my eyes closed to experience this moment on earth, in this body, on this couch.
This is the same earth, and my body no different in its humanness, than the thousands of grieving, mis-placed, deeply wounded people of the Philippine Islands. I kept my eyes closed and thought of this and the words of St. Exupery, “What I went through, no animal would go through.”
Our humanness… excruciating and wondrous.
May we all together go into our hearts and send them up, out and over there. These people need our love and support.
Every morning for this entire holy season that is approaching, let’s do this!
