Stand and look at the cosmos that’s visible to you — the sky, sun, moon, or stars — remaining silent and contemplating this with a reverent gaze. Remember where you stand: on the curve of an astounding orb floating through the universe. Bow deeply in respect for what you behold.
“Limitless love, from the depths to the stars: flooding all, loving all. It is the royal kiss of peace” (St. Hildegard of Bingen).
Boundless Love, you flow through the cosmos and extend your limitless compassion to every particle. I pray today that your kiss of peace will touch each part of our planet that suffers due to human actions.
SCRIPTURE TO CARRY IN YOUR HEART TODAY
“The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims [God’s] handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. There is not speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” (Ps 19:1-4)
