Sharing the Word for September 3, 2020
Jesus is still generous today. He provides the sacraments, Scriptures, the Church’s teaching, and the companionship of the faithful.
Saint Gregory the Great
Gregory, called “the Great,” became pope at the age of 50. In his new role, he had much to do both within and outside the Church. Known for his reform of the liturgy, he is credited as the author of the Gregorian chant used for centuries in the Latin church.
Journaling: Grace in the Pages
I love to write. Since I was a boy, paper and pencil have been on my list of favorite things. Now, I’ve added a nib pen. As a boy, I journaled. I still do.
Some years, writing every day. All journals have this in common: They give voice to what is inside. They become safe space. In that way, journaling is like a sanctuary: a time and a place that allows us—gives us permission—to pause. To look inside and to embrace what is here, what is alive and well. To embrace our enoughness.
Think of this “sanctuary” space as a dose of grace.
