THE RIVER

RIVER    
 

Detail

Communities are formed around rivers. Farmers
irrigate their crops; shepherds bring their flocks
to drink; people wash their bodies and their
clothes and they collect clean drinking water;
children play and swim.

The river supplies the water of life to all of us as
it winds along its course. Each person shares in
the river's blessing. THE RIVER reminds me of our need
to keep growing in understanding and compassion
for all people, and to see our common source.

My mother was raised in the isolated Sierra
Nevada Mountains of Mexico. On the feast of
St. John the Baptist, her family would go to
the river to have a picnic and bathe in the water.

In India each year, millions of Hindus bathe in
the Ganges River in a ritual of spiritual cleansing.

Some of our rituals look ordinary and some are
special celebrations, but each is integral to who
we are and they connect us to our ancestors and
descendants.
