Betwixt St. Francis and St. Luke

Taking healing lessons from Creation

This Quiet Day comes not long after the observance of Creationtide in the Church calendar, as well as between the festivals of St. Francis and St. Luke. It’s a time of year when creation begins its rest from the productivity of earlier months and enters a time of restoration and healing in preparation for new birth. Jesus often took examples from creation into His teaching and creation can speak to us today.
