Meschini (artist) Jesus and Birds..........April 17



"Whenever our eyes feast on a spectacular scene--
such as a magnificent landscape, or a splendid sunset, or a beautiful star-studded sky--
let us realize that it is only a pale reflection of the Divine Beauty.
Let us then bless the Lord as being the sole source of all good."


St. Theresa of Avila

* Thank you, Micki, for the art and for the quote. I, too, love our St. Teresa and all I've learned from her.
* All the beauty around us... perhaps it's but a pale reflection of our eventual Paradise, too!
* Can anyone help with this? I'm beginning to try praying without ceasing, and open to advice from anyone with experience, regarding the logistics, any cautions, any suggestions, etc. Thanks in advance for any consideration and help you can offer.

Ed - Oh Ed that's one of my joys also. I wonder what kind of birds you get.

FOOL - She certainly could put words together. To learn and to be inspired is such a blessing for us all.
"Eventual Paradise"....I love that thought.
I am not sure what you hope to get...I thought "constant prayer" just meant lifting whatever you are doing up to God was keeping one in "constant prayer"....in other words, our work IS prayer.???
