Moments, by Mary Oliver

There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled. Like telling someone you love them. Or giving your money away, all of it.


Your heart is beating, isn’t it? You’re not in chains, are you?


There is nothing more pathetic than caution when headlong might save a life, even, possibly, your own.


Perhaps we are at a moment in our country’s history when headlong is how the Spirit is leading us.


“Whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:38-39)

  1. Thanks, Fr. Ron, for another great series of photos. Flowers in bloom are a symbol of hope. Two of the photos show pathways. I am always drawn to photos of pathways, actual or implied. Wondering where the pathways lead sparks my imagination.
