Reflection

We wanted to share with you a Reflection from Pope Francis that we use at the beginning of our meetings. 

 

Reflection from Pope Francis

 

“This life will go by fast.

 

Don’t fight with people, don’t criticize your body so much, don’t complain so much.

 

Don’t lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and keep seeking your happiness.

 

Enjoy, travel, enjoy your journeys, see new places, give yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to get closer. Don’t put away the fine glassware. Utilise the new dinnerware; don’t save your favourite perfume, use it to go out with yourself; wear out your favourite sport shoes; repeat your favourite clothes.

 

So what? That’s not bad. Why not now? Why not pray now instead of waiting until before your sleep? Why not call now? Why not forgive now? We wait so long for Christmas; for Friday; or Reunions; for another year; for when I have money; for love to come; when everything is perfect…look…

 

Everything perfect doesn’t exist. Human beings can’t accomplish this because it simply was not intended to be completed here. Here is an opportunity to learn.

 

So take this challenge that is life and do it now…love more, forgive more, embrace more, love more intensely and leave the rest in God’s hands.”

Early Years children had a wonderful seasonal walk today. They were lucky with the weather which allowed them to appreciate the changing leaves and autumnal feel in the air!
