As many of you know, Mark Mallett was so besieged with work for a time that he reduced his daily blog to a weekly update. This last week, he has been back at it every day.
Mallett is one of my primary sources of spiritual food through his deeply grounded meditations. He and Janet Klasson – or Pelianito – have become important sources of both inspiration and consolation to me. And I am so delighted at the friendship that has grown amongst us. Let me tell you, it is a fearsome thing to deal with many of these things and try to stay steady and true. It is a tremendous relief to have friends who deal with similar things and go through similar trials trying to stay true. It even helps that we see the same things from different angles, for it helps to see treasures through other eyes at times in trying to discern what is true, honorable, just, pure lovely and gracious.
Go here to see Mallett’s daily reflections on the Mass reading for the day. Then go here to check on Pelianito’s lovely journal, which is a marvelous resource for fruitful devotions and a collection of reflections that are exquisite little gems. I know I link to both at the right here – but I like to give you a little prod every now and again.
