Friday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Saint Henry (d. 1024)

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 35:1-11 Weekly Servers in the Kitchen and at Table
Mass: Ho 14:2-10; Resp Ps 51; Mt 10:16-23

All you beasts, wild and tame, bless the Lord; praise and exult him above all forever.(Da 3:81)
Scenes as shown in today's photo appear regularly on our property at Redwoods. This one was taken last night after our last communal prayer of the day, called Compline or Night Prayer. A fitting response to such displays comes from Psalm 51 used in today's celebration of the Eucharist. 
Just as happens when we fall in love with someone, whenever St Francis would gaze at the sun, the moon or the smallest of animals, he burst into song drawing all creatures into his praise.(Pope Francis, Laudato Si, 11)
