Prayer is the heart speaking.

A Call to Prayer

The Earth is at the same time mother, She is mother of all that is natural, mother of all that is human. She is the mother of all, for contained in her are the seeds of all. The Earth of humankind contains all moistness, all verdancy, all germinating power. It is in so many ways fruitful. All creation comes from it. Yet it forms not only the basic raw material for humankind, but also the substance of the incarnation of God’s son. (Hildegard of...

From The Lorica of Saint Patrick

I arise today; in vast might, invocation of the Trinity, belief in a Threeness confession of Oneness meeting in the Creator. I arise today: might of Heaven brightness of Sun whiteness of Snow splendour of Fire speed of Light swiftness of Wind depth of Sea stability of Earth firmness of Rock. Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ under me, Christ over me, Christ to right of me, Christ to left of me, Christ in lying down, Christ in sitting, Christ in rising up, Christ in the heart of every person, who may...

A Christian Prayer In Union With Creation

Father, we praise you with all your creatures. They came forth from your all-powerful hand; they are yours, filled with your presence and your tender love. Praise be to you!

Healing The Whole

Healing The Whole

We who have lost our sense and our senses—our touch, our smell, our vision of who we are; we who frantically force and press all things, without rest for body or spirit, hurting our Earth and injuring ourselves: we call a halt. We want to rest.  We need to rest and allow the Earth to rest.  We need to reflect and to rediscover the mystery that lives in us, that is the ground of every unique expression of life, the source of the fascination that calls all things to communion.

I Am The One

I am the one whose praise echoes on high. I adorn all the Earth. I am the breeze that nurtures all things green. I encourage blossoms to flourish with ripening fruits.
