With beauty suffused

This place, in the hills of Malibu overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the distance, lifts my spirits whenever I visit (which is definitely not often enough).  The hospitality of the Friars welcomes gently; the food has gotten better and better over the years -- both delicious AND healthy; and no matter what time of year I show up here, there are always flowers to beckon me to flights of gratitude and awe that soften even *my* curmudgeonliness.

When I was in Iraq and Kosovo, the search for unexpected and undeserved beauty kept my spirit alive through some very long days and trying times.

What a gift to be able to revel in so much beauty for (several) days on end!!

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ
