A Great Pilgrimage

A Great Pilgrimage

I felt in need of a great pilgrimage
so I sat still for three
days

and God came
to me.

-Kabir

Pamela McCauley shared the wonderful poem above in a comment she left on my post about Africa.  She also shared this great quote from a Ugandan Sister who said, “You have watches, but no time. We have no watches, but plenty of time.”

Wishing you a weekend of spaciousness. May the Holy One come to you in the stillness and fill the wide open spaces of your heart.
