Dear Holy Ones of The Spirit of Life, 

Darkness is an Advent theme we are drawn to these days.  In these Advent days, pondering the darkness has a lot to teach us.   Some of you may receive Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations on-line.  This week he has been meditating on darkness and light—yin and yang—with Joan Chittister and Diana Hayes.  We share with you some highlights of their contemplation:

Dear Spirit of Lifers, 

Due to the snow, we have decided to cancel our Eucharistic Liturgy today Sunday December 1 in Weston.  We want everyone to be safe and not be in danger on the roads.

Dear Holy Ones of The Spirit of Life, 

As you may remember, the readings at the end of the  liturgical year/beginning of advent are usually about the end of the world . What is the end of your world?  For some people the end of the world was Trump being elected.  For others, the end of the world was Obama being elected.  On a more deeply personal note, for others the end of the world was the death of a beloved partner.  For others,
