MORNING HAS BROKEN



Contemporary Church life threatens to fragment into extremes of “liberal” and “conservative” precisely because often we lose sight of this deepest mystical Center and spend ourselves in fruitless debates that are unworthy of the Church because they are really political and not mystical in method, content or intent.

--Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis, Love’s Sacred Order

  2. Yes, beautifully vivid pictures!

    I must read Leiva-Merikakis: snippets of his work sometimes appear in the Magnificat prayer booklet. I understand he's now a Trappist monk in Spencer, Massachusetts.

  3. yeah, the ice cream was great, Leslie! And you're right, Dylan, Leiva-Merikakis is now known as Brother Simeon and is at the abbey in Spencer. He just turned me on to the German poet Hilde Domin and is also a big Gertrud von le Fort fan...
