Ash Wednesday

If the lost word is lost, if the spent word is spent
If the unheard, unspoken
Word is unspoken, unheard;
Still is the unspoken word, the Word unheard,
The Word without a word, the Word within
The world and for the world;
And the light shone in darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
About the centre of the silent Word.

-- T.S. Eliot (from Ash Wednesday)

  1. I just discovered your blog and love it. I was wondering where you find your images. I have a blog myself, but I usually just use photos. However, I am part of a women's retreat ministry in my parish and am always looking for good images. I especially loved one you used some time ago of the woman at the well. How do you get permission to use the images? Is there a place to go for this? Thanks for any help and blessings to you for putting such beautiful words to good use.
