READING! “My Paper.li” for Tuesday, August 4th

As I mentioned last week, I’m now starting each day’s “My Paper.li” post with a quote from Franciscan Father Richard Rohr’s daily email that I receive from his Center For Action and Contemplation.

As I start my day with this rich wisdom and share it with you, I hope it helps your day to be the best it can be!

Today, Fr. Richard quotes his friend and fellow religious thinker, Mirabai Starr, and her insights on Saint Hildegard of Bingen:

Speak out, Hildegard says.

And when you do, when you recognize that inner voice as the voice of God and say what it has taught you, the sickness in your heart will melt away.

The fatigue you have lived with for so long that you did not even notice how weary you were will lift.

Your voice will ring out with such clarity and beauty that you will not be able to stop singing.

To speak your truth, Hildegard teaches us, is to praise God.

Father Richard’s “Prayer For Our Community” this week:

O Great Love, thank you for living and loving in us and through us.

May all that we do flow from our deep connection with you and all beings.

Help us become a community that vulnerably shares each other’s burdens and the weight of glory.

Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our world. [Please add your own intentions.] . . .

Knowing you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God, amen.
