Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him." One day St. Francis met a sow. Through words, touch, and a bless- ing, he told her how beautiful she was. She couldn't see it. Most of US are like that sow, aren't we? We don't see our beauty, our inner beauty. We compensate with makeup, hair styles, clothing, possessions, and ac- tions. We cover up and are afraid of who we really are. But we are willed. We are beautiful. Francis always saw the goodness in nature and people. He saw that our healing is less a fixing and more about being connected with every- thing and everyone. This connects us to God, and brings out our good- ness Which heals us body and soul. Everything was brother and sister to Francis. The sun wasn't just the sun. It was Brother Sun. The moon was Sister Moon. Today, we might say Francis was "a bit off." But is it crazy to see God everywhere, in everyone, and everything? The fruit of our modem blindness to the sacred is toxic waste that kills and causes cancer. We exploit and bring to extinction the very things that Francis called beautiful and spoke to him about God. The first sermon Francis gave was to a flock of birds. They seemed to understand. Even fish would gather at the side of a bank and listen to Francis. At the end, he would always say, "Now, go off, because I've told you who you are." To Francis, everyone and everything should be who they were. This is what brings glory to God. This is what brings joy. Once we see we are connected and a part of all that is, we will see ourselves in God and belonging to Him. You will notice that all is good and that you are already healed. This healing happens not because you are good in yourself and your actions, but you belong to the Whole and the Holy. He, the 1 AM, makes you good, whole, and holy (and healed) by belonging and being connected. Then you will understand that the rape of a person and the rape of a forest is the same moral deficit. A Sis- ter in Christ has the same source as Sister Forest. We are all one. Francis wanted nothing to separate himself from Jesus. He saw that his possessions did in fact do this. Possessions created a world of mine and yours. They created a need for violence, locks and closed doors, but also closed hearts. Francis' remedy was a love affair with Lady Poverty. He learned that in possessing nothing, we actually are given everything because we be- long and are connected. Nothing is ours anyway. Everything is passing away. What we see does not last. It's a mirage, a lie from the latest TV AD. What we don't see is the really real, and like love, lasts forever. Living a poor life set Francis free to see and to love. Greedily gathering things to ourselves is what blinds, impoverishes, and imprisons us. Francis would say that we must be mirrors to each other reminding each other who we are: Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, Sons and Daugh- ters of the Most High God. We must be mirrors especially to those who hate themselves, who've been abused, imprisoned, rejected, abandoned, 'who think or have been told that they are no good. Crazy isn't it? May as well preach to the birds! To think that God willed you, that you are necessary and loved. No, that isn't crazy, thatls the truth of who you are, of who we are. Peace be with you. / Librarian's Corner :By 'VlikiiGrii The O 5viile' Phbli6;Library is open Monday-Thursday 12-8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10-3 p.m. However we will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 25 for Thanksgiving.
