Does it strike you that – despite all the various conversations about our environment, nature, the universe, and our role as human persons within creation – that we seem to be more out-of-sync with Creation than ever before?
Still, we long for that connection to that which is transcendent, which cannot be manufactured by our own reason and hands. It somehow alludes us in our reductionistic viewpoint of the world – that we don’t immediately even realize we have!
Truly, the sun and its warmth and radiance, the music of ocean waves, the fragrance of the rose – and yes, even our human bodies! – are icons pointing to us to something far beyond just the material – to the Eternal.
Join me today as we listen to the contemplative wisdom of Fr. John Bartunek, LC who shares with us from his first book of a coming series of four books of meditations focused upon the beauty of the seasons, simply titled Spring Meditations.
