Place Light Around New Orleans
Our mission on the earth is to meet the darkness of the world with the light of God's Love. The tragedy of hurricane Katrina, like many such incidents, is darkness that challenges us to reach for the brightest light within us: the light of compassion, the light of self-awareness, the light of humility and the light of hope.
Let us have the compassion to help others in any way that we can; the self-awareness to realize how casually we devastated Baghdad, and now see up close what the devastation of a city really means; the humility to ask God's forgiveness for our ever having taken for granted our extraordinary blessings; and hope that, with His help, we can rise to the level of power and humanity to turn this tragedy into a lesson from which all of us have learned.
Please help the victims of the hurricane.
Send them legions of angels
both human and divine.
Please fortify their hearts
and bolster their strength.
Pave a way
from this darkness
into an ever-increasing light --
and in every single one of us.
May what has hurt us
now heal us,
as it takes us
deeper into Love.
and for all the world,
may miracles restore
the broken places of the heart.
God bless you. You know what to do. Send what you can to the Red Cross www.redcross.org or call 1-800-HELP-NOW.
Pray without ceasing. And remember: miracles are happening there too.
