Earth Day at St. Michael's
Earth Day in St. Michael's, our convent overlooking the Hudson River in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. I'm here for meetings of a commun-ications group, but since these don't start until Saturday, I have a couple of days to enjoy the beauty of springtime - a season that doesn't happen in El Salvador - and to connect with the sisters here. That's the flag of earth, la tierra bendita, flying along with the U.S. flag, among the azaleas and lilacs and narcissus of this gentle season.
May the wholeness and holiness of our earth be blessed and protected this day and always.
