Time to Go

As regular readers of this site know, last March I wrote that I was ending my blog. The resulting feedback convinced me to reconsider, and I continued both my blog and the entire site.

This time I won’t change my mind. Stopping the site will give me time for whatever ministry I might be called to when I am in Pennsylvania. Besides, many wonderful sites exist now that weren’t available when I started in 2012. 

My thanks to the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus for their blessing on this ministry. My thanks to Fr. Terrence J. Moran, who convinced me to start the blog. My thanks to those special helpers (like Thomas J. Murphy, Ph.D.) who so graciously checked my drafts over the years to be sure the science, theology, and grammar were correct. And thanks to those who have read the material, used the group resources, forwarded items to their friends, posted on their websites, published information about the site, translated resources, and written me words of encouragement. I treasure the many connections I made because of the site!

Although I shall no longer update pages or post blogs, I shall leave the site available. Many past blogs and pages, as well as Advent, Lent, and Laudato Si’  resources, will be relevant for years.

I don’t mean to trivialize Mary Oliver’s profound words in “In Blackwater Woods,” but her ending is appropriate here: “… when the time comes to let it go,/… let it go.” It’s time.

My loving thanks to each and all readers — and to the empowering Mystery acting within us and our expanding and interconnected universe!

    Last year, he was asked about his secret to happiness. Pope Francis said slow down. Take time off. Live and let live. Don’t proselytize. Work for peace. Work at a job that offers basic human dignity. Don’t hold on to negative feelings. Move calmly through life. Enjoy art, books and playfulness.

  2. Thank you for all you’ve done to create and share these resources. I’m sorry to say I only discovered your website recently, but it sounds like there is so much there to draw on. Wishing you traveling mercies on this next leg of the journey. If you’re ever in Central NJ, come visit Sabbath House – a Center for Sacred Activism in New Egypt where we use your resources in our worship.
