“The truly holy person welcomes all that is earthly. Glance at the sun. See the moon and stars. Gaze at the earth’s greenings… All nature is at the disposal of humankind. We are to work with it. For without it we cannot survive.
[Hildegard of Bingen]
Most often when I look around me as I walk or work in my gardens, I am amazed at the harmony of all living things. I am a steward of this earth and all its magnificence.
“Through the art of affirmative prayer,” Ernest Holmes tells us, “the limitless resources of the Spirit are at my command. The power of the infinite is at my disposal.”
We are the blessed caretakers of the earth. The infinite rests in our hands.
