Our Sister gardeners love the earth and tend it well after the example of Francis and Clare
It is our Franciscan Tradition to love all of creation after our patrons Saints Francis and Clare.
Saint Francis of Assisi rejoiced in all
the works of the Lord's Hands.
In beautiful things he intuited Beauty itself.
Francis savored in each and every creature
----the goodness given them by God. (St. Bonaventure's Major Work of St. Francis)
Clare considered herself the Little Plant of Francis
and followed his love for creation.

Meister Eckhart says, " Every creature is a Word of God".
and N.T.Wright says in his new book "Surprised by Scripture,
" The resurrection of Jesus is the reaffirmation of the goodness of creation, and the gift of the Spirit is there to make us the fully human beings we were supposed to be precisely so that we can fulfill that madate at last. What are we waiting for?
Jesus is coming.
Let's go plant a Tree.
