Yes, there is a theme connecting these disparate snapshots, if you read the whatnot!
Glorious paths through country meadows
Searching for a quote today I found something in an old journal from Carlo Carretto (1910-1988), a member of the Little Brothers of Jesus who served in the Algerian Sahara as a desert contemplative in the spirit of Charles de Foucauld and Saint Francis of Assisi. Carlo Carretto’s spiritual writings have impacted my life for many years. May his prayerful insights help prepare our hearts for the Easter Triduum.
“The path of prayer… is now a glorious path through the meadows, now a peaceful country road with no obstacles where we can abandon ourselves to quiet thought, now a rough mule-track winding up the mountains, now a way over the bare rocks on the summit. Sometimes it’s like a city street full of noise and distractions, at others it follows the water off the streets into underground drains and so to the river or sea, carrying with it the rubbish and filth of life.
But it is always prayer.” Carlo Carretto, from God’s Name is Love
grace, peace & prayerful paths
Virginia : )
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing Virginia. I enjoy Carlo Carretto’s writings. His book “Letters from the Desert” is so good. Blessings!
I have a stack of his books (worn & tattered) but ‘Blessed Are You Who Believed’ really touched my heart on a silent retreat awhile back. Catherine Doherty, Carlo Carretto & St. Teresa of Avila – Patty, you are a kindred spirit!!! ✨📚🤗📚✨
Thank you Virginia! You as well 🙂
What great pictures..thank you
Eclectic mix of pics, but they go with the quote? Blessings!! 🌷📸🌷
Thought provoking re prayer … like how the pictures illustrate the quote. Great job, Ginny!
Thanks, Cin. It’s comforting that our uttering & guttering prayers flow alongside our flowery offerings – God hears them all! 🌷✨🙏✨🌷
Happy Blessed Easter Virginia and may your Easter Egg hunting be fun.
A blessed Easter to you, GH, & your parents. May all your Easter eggs be full (chocolate?) Hugs! 🌷✨🤗✨🌷
Thank you! 🐰🐣🌻🤗🤗
…but it is always prayer…. Beautiful!
Amen, Arlene. Thankful God hears the uttering of our hearts (even when it’s a bit of a mumble…) Blessings!! ✨🙏💜🙏✨
