A Contemplative Eastertide



O Spirit
O Silence
O Risen One

O Gate
O Garden
O Press of the Grass

O Call
O Healer
O Love Gone Before Us

O Breath
O Life
O Catcher of Tears

O Spirit
O Silence
O Risen One


About Catherine Smith

A retired minister with the United Church of Canada I’ve grown up in church, been ordained and served communities that are small or in transition. I’ve seen firsthand just how powerful these experiences can be in helping to foster meaningful connections with others and the Other, the mystery that holds us all. My greatest hope is that my writing and this website will help you live well in the big questions that face all of us in this beautiful, aching world.

      I see to be feeling a kind of spare reverence these days. And so I am full of these simple ‘O’s.
