May we continue to hold in prayer those affected by this natural disaster.

HOW BIG IS MY WORLD…MY GOD?

We tend to be well-armored against authentic God experience, because it always leads us into the unfamiliar, that new terrain where we are not in control and God is. St. Augustine said, ‘Si comprehenderis, non est Deus’: ‘If you can understand it, it is not God.’ I guess that is why God usually has to break in or break us down to break through to us. We try to pull God into our little minds and worlds, when this big God is trying to pull us into a much bigger world, which we, almost by nature, resist. Jesus called it ‘the kingdom of God.’” Richard Rohr (Introduction to Paul Coutinho’s book How Big Is Your God?)

THE GREEN LEAF - Active transportation

Many of us used to travel quite actively to work. What about when we work from home? Why maintain or integrate the use of active transportation into this new routine?

THE GREEN LEAF

NEWSLETTER BY THE GREEN COMMITTEE OF THE MOTHER HOUSE

Lord,

You made the children of Israel cross the sea with dry feet.

You showed the three Wise Men the way to You by guiding them with a star.

We pray you: give us a safe journey and good weather.

Do so that in the company of your holy angel,

We may arrive happily at the place we want to reach

And in the end, to the port of eternal salvation.

Translation of an excerpt of Prière de bénédiction des pèlerins (Association des Recteurs de Sanctuaires)

ACTIVE TRAVEL

Health

According to the World Health Organisation, “adults aged 18–64years should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week, or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity". This translates in doing at least 30 minutes per day. However, ideally, these numbers should be doubled, according to the WHO, to truly reap the benefits of these activities. Currently, since we do not have to commute to work, most of the trips we make are local and short distance (e.g., grocery store, pharmacy, etc.). Why not combine what is useful with what is pleasant and take this time to walk or bike?
