Compost: Life Comes From Death

Every day, I collect sweet potato scraps, coffee grinds, and old green beans for my compost pile and top it with dead grass.

In six months, this persistent effort will yield dark, rich soil, perfect to grow tomatoes, zucchini, greens, and other vegetables in my summer garden.

Death makes way for life.  Life comes from death.

Eucharistic Procession, Gatewood Neighborhood, Oklahoma City

Last Sunday, out of the darkness that threatened from the Black Mass, arose a Eucharistic Procession at St. Francis of Assisi, with some 3,000 people in attendance to pray for the city and honor Christ Jesus.
