Belonging to God

New video from the Cenacle Sisters:

The text is drawn from the writings of Saint Therese Couderc, the Cenacle foundress.

If the words go by too fast, pause the video for reflection the first time you view the video, then watch it straight through the second viewing.  (It's a very short video.)

New Year 2013

Last night close to midnight I went out on the second-floor porch to watch the fireworks.  Although fireworks here (the New Orleans area) are habitually shot from all over our neighborhood, last night's display surpassed any I had seen, including those celebrating the turning of the Millennium. We had been hearing them, and occasionally seeing them, since late afternoon.  But when the clock struck midnight they were nothing less than awe-inspiring.  

I didn't know where to look, because they came from everywhere except the lake--even blossoming almost over my head!  I could imagine the Second Coming or the end of the world being something like this, with Glory coming from all around.

May the year ahead live up to this display. 

(Needless to say, the photos do not do justice to the experience.)
