I am now in Assisi and soon off to see what lessons are here for me. I hope to understand St. Francis and his desire to simplify and be at peace with nature. As I walked around town last night it was easy to see how he had an eye for beauty. The light here is stunning and everything excites the eye and soul. My aunt had mentioned years ago that Assisi was a place of beauty and that remained with me all these years. I knew one day that I would have to visit. So many of you have asked for me to pray for you here and I will, as I walk and as I visit the holy sites here.
This is little pilgrimage has been amazing and gratitude fills my heart. I’m not sure what it will all mean but I know I have time to process it all eventually. For now I will keep it simple–walk with eyes open to see the Holy before me. Simplify. Breathe.
I love that sentence, Suzanne… ‘see the Holy before me’. That is what I desire to do in all my walks of life here. Big hug.
Dear one, I prayed for you today in front of the painting of Mary and Elizabeth. So much I want to share with you. See the Beauty and the Holy everywhere.
My prayers are with you as well as I follow you on your travels.
