Sister Death, First and Last Breath

January 10, 2023

This made me think of our dear friend Simon de Voil’s musical translation of St Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of Creation… Sister Death is not to be feared… she is our first and last breath

“The spareness of the trees reminds us of our own essence when it is stripped bare. Awareness of death has a way of reminding us of what is most important.”
