Inspired by St. Ignatius' Rule of Discernment 316.3 on Spiritual Consolation.

Spiritual consolation comes when we love all creatures because we see God in them. We are moved to love God, to grasp and understand our sins and come to terms with them. Peace enters our souls when we increase in the cardinal virtues of faith, hope, and love.


At the top of the mountain
The view below is small

New leaves on the trees
Are where I want to be

Facing up to bad news
Praying for goodwill

New leaves on the trees
Are where I want to be

Easing up on anger
Trying hard for peace
