Praised be You, my Lord, through our Sister Mother Earth,
who sustains and governs us,
and who produces various fruit with colored flowers and herbs.” St. Francis.
St. Francis always taught that our gardens should include a wild uncultivated place where the flowers and herbs of the field could find a home and where we could rejoice in their beauty and rest in their praise of the Creator simply by their very being. May the garden of your heart always have a wild corner where unexpected beauty and deep healing may be found inviting you into the joy of knowing that in your very being you are called to be a blessing.
