What to write about? What to write about? It’s the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time and Grandparent’s Day. Pope Francis is visiting Budapest and Slovakia this week. We celebrate the feasts of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on the 14th and Our Lady of Sorrows on the 15th. Hispanic Heritage Month begins on the 15th. Are you breathless yet? Oh, and we’re all gearing up for the start of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies program year—and Catechetical Sunday on the 19th.
If your life feels frenzied and you sometimes feel frantic about getting it all done—and doing it all well (as I do), I hope you’ll find a moment of peace and a shift in perspective from this quotation from Saint Hildegard of Bingen, whose feast day is on the 17th:
Listen: there was once a king sitting on his throne. Around him stood great and wonderfully beautiful columns ornamented with ivory, bearing the banners of the king with great honor. Then it pleased the king to raise a small feather from the ground, and he commanded it to fly. The feather flew, not because of anything in itself but because the air bore it along. Thus am I, a feather on the breath of God.
