  • Transitioning to Holy Week

    “Let me fall if I must. The one I will become will catch me.” Baal Shem Tov Transitions are messy. Holy Week starts with the promise and jubilation of Palm Sunday. And then, Holy Week turns dark and tragic. But, we know the ending. Friday’s darkness turns into Sunday’s light. The week ends in Alleluia! […]

  • Hope

      I barely can sense it’s shiver of awakening. But. I stop in stillness, Searching for the shimmer. In a drawn down lip-line, In a shallow breath, In a tear-drop caught in its passage. My consciousness whispers that it’s there. My footsteps inch toward it. It must be! Because. I hope for it. By Susan […]

  • Lord, Make us Instruments of Your Peace

    For our Sunday musical reflection this week, I am sharing “Lord, Make us Instruments of Your Peace.”  This is based on the Prayer of Saint Francis (1181-1226).  As many of us in the world today are sheltering in place, our staying home is an Act of Peace.  We are saving lives by staying home.   You […]

  • A Reflection: “What is Lent For?”

    If in suffering you can no longer give thanks for God’s goodness and have no taste for paradox, from where comes succor if nothing’s real but whirl of pain and echo, “Why am I forsaken?”   Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani  . . . . What is the meaning of our brother’s ending cry of sorrow? […]
