We were reminded of Thomas Merton’s SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN
You were the Light of the World, the Salt of the Earth, the loving presence of God..
“No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.”
You will be with us always
Gratitude goes beyond the “mine” and “thine” and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.
~~ Henri J. Nouwen

Children and adults alike enjoy the traditions that help us anticipate the Christmas holiday with excitement and wonder. Dating back to 19th-century Germany, Advent Calendars are one way to countdown to the big day. Our Advent Calendar features the story of Christ with whimsical pictures.

Quotes on Love from Hildegard
The heart is like that: grace-filled and trembling
once it has known
You will find yourself knee-deep in ecstasy
when all your talents to love
have reached their heights.
Go running through this world
giving love, giving love.
We all need union with love or we die prematurely.
Love can endure the silence.
To love we need to leave the love-seat of fear.
Our hearts are lovers.
I see myself reflected in your tender loving eyes.
We carry all the ingredients
to choose love.
May we suffer with tenderness the daily wounds that accompany love.
May our crooked hearts love all who are crooked.
Let us decide to welcome the challenging stages of love.
Hildegard established Creator Mundi in 1987 and continues to find joy in discovering distinctive sacred art and gifts for Creator Mundi’s followers.
