The Human Brain
Amazingly, there are almost the same number of neurons in the brain as there are stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Each brain cell has several thousand finger-like projections extending from both ends that connect and communicate with neighboring brain cells. These connections are called synapses, and billions of new ones are created each second in the early years of life! Babies are born with nearly 100 billion neurons, which is all the brain cells they will ever need.

It is the day of days when the inner eye opens to the unity of all things.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today look for the unity of all things
This Lent the Ecological Sustainability Committee offers these daily reflections. These readings invite us to “Deepen our spirituality” (Directive 1) through contemplation on creation, Scripture, images, poetry and Laudato Si’. The reflections speak of a spirituality that brings us and others closer to God through the gifts and wonders of creation. That spirituality motivates us “to intensify efforts across the congregation to address the destruction of natural resources and the ecological and environmental crisis.” (Directive 4b)
