October 4 is the feast of St. Francis of Assisi.
In honor of this day, I invite anyone who reads this to do something to connect more deeply than usual with nature. Take a walk outdoors, work in your garden, pick up litter, plant a tree, increase your recycling, buy green products, visit an organic farm, adopt a rescue animal, celebrate your own earthiness.
The Celts, the Native Americans, and St. Francis: the sacred trinity of western nature mysticism. Blessings to you on this most holy day.
