compassion and community

“All suffering cries out to God and elicits divine compassion and community.” ~Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation
Lord, hear our cry and have mercy.



Jesus weeps.

“Jesus comes near and he beholds the city / And looks on us with tears in his eyes, / And wells of mercy, streams of love and pity / Flow from the fountain from whence all things arise.” ~an excerpt from Jesus Weeps by Malcolm Guite


a quiet strength

“Hope fills us with the strength to stay present, to abide in the flow of the Mercy no matter what storms assail us. It is entered always and only through surrender; that is, through the willingness to let go of everything we are presently clinging to. And yet when we enter it, it enters us and fills us with its own life–a quiet strength beyond anything we have ever known.” ~Cynthia Bourgeault, Mystical Hope
