In many places, it is now autumn and the trees are turning and dressing themselves in beauty. It is the season that I miss each year. Miami did not really have any autumn and I think California may have some autumn scenes, but we are having really hot weather for September. The above picture invites us to walk deeper into this beauty and contemplate the season of autumn.
One of the calls of our General Chapter is to embrace silence. This is so necessary to deepen our interior life. May this season of beauty and falling leaves teach us all to value silence, to seek it, to embrace it.
