Our Sacredness

The Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
— Jellaludin Rumi, a sufi monk during the 13th century

What Does Divine Mercy Feel Like?

Mercy is doing the hard work of forgiving love

God’s Mercy went into the Cross
God went into sin
He did the work
Fought the battle

Forgiveness is hard work
Taking sin and conquering it
swallowing it up

Divine love unleashes power
Conquering the world
Power of the divine mercy corrects sin from the inside

We Are An Easter People

Father Robert Barron relates that everything in Christianity boils down to the fact that God raised Jesus from the dead – a very mystical act indeed for us to believe and trust. And going forward understand that we are a Easter people everyday and a mystical people that will not let doubt interfere with what we were born to do. Just as Jesus knew what he was born to do and accomplished it. He is our Guide, our hub to the wheel of life where we are the spokes, our Yogi who is alive and well today living and breathing through us.

“Everything said by Augustine, Aquinas, Francis of Assisi, Dante, Teresa of Avila, Thérèse of Lisieux, Pascal, Newman, Chesterton, and John Paul II comes down to the declaration that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. Every act of every saint is related to the fact of the Resurrection.

Over the centuries, various thinkers and theologians have tried to maintain that Christianity is fundamentally a moral system at whose center stands the command to love God and neighbor. Some have wanted to strip Christianity of its mystical and supernatural elements, turning the Resurrection into a pleasant myth or an evocative symbol.

But St. Paul gives the lie to these reductionistic interpretations: “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile.”

In other words, what your faith comes down to is the conviction that God the Father has raised his Son from the realm of the dead. Everything else in Christianity—ritual, liturgy, theology, morality—flows from this fact and is related to it.” -Father Barron

Jesus said, “Whoever believes the Truth will hear my voice.”

Happy Easter to my people! Thanks for all you are and all you are here to be. XXO, Missy

21st Century Re-imagining

Roomful of Teeth is a GRAMMY-winning vocal project dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice. A group of people formed a workshop to explore sounds in Massachusetts. Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the group’s artistic director and conductor, Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to exploring the expressive potential of the human voice through the study of singing traditions from around the world. Its eight classically trained vocalists are equally adept at Tuvan throat-singing, yodeling, Inuit throat-singing and new vocal techniques from Sardinia and Korea. They’re playing in Ann Arbor, Mi. March 15 – 16, 2019. Let’s go!
