Oblate Fall Day of Reflection

patella_1.pngA Benedictine monk of Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, Father Michael Patella, OSB, is a professor of New Testament and teaches in both the undergraduate theology department and the graduate School of Theology•Seminary at Saint John's University, where he serves as seminary rector and the director of the graduate school’s Holy Land Studies Program.

Theme of the day: While nature turns to death and dying with the approach of winter, we find ourselves responding in kind to the shorter days, the darker hours, and the chillier winds. Liturgy in the northern hemisphere reflects the changes in our environment and in ourselves. For our reflection during this time of year, we will look at what the liturgical readings say as the leaves fall and the fields die.
