Fall at the Monstery of Saint Clare in Chesterfield, NJ

Thoughts from Evelyn Underwood

Everything is sacrament and spirit finds Spirit in the lilies of the field and the fall of the year, no less than in the unknowable God.
Underhill quotes Clement of Alexandria,"A beautiful breathing instrument of music, the Lord made us, wheron the spirit of Life"makes Melody to God". ..the freshness of eternal  springs would speak to us in the primrose and the trees...all things rush on, they stop not, they look not behind, no power can hold them back, they rush on. Keeping steps with that restless rapid music, seasons come dancing and pass away-colours, tunes and perfumes pour in endless cascades in the abounding joy that scatters and gives up and dies every moment...be glad with the gladness of this rhythm.
