How can you have peace in your life?  This week’s letter from St Paul to the Philippians gives us some clues,

Wheel of Fortune, Hortus Deliciarum, Manuscript, Herrad of  Landsburg (1130-1195), Hohenburg Abbey, Alsace

The Wheel of Fortune, Hortus Deliciarum, copy of miniature from Manuscript by Herrad of Landsburg (1130-1195), Hohenburg Abbey, Alsace.

and Fr Robert Barron has a deep and wonderful reflection on Paul’s letter here:

Peace Beyond Understanding.

If you’re wondering about the picture I’ve used as our feature for this week, do listen to Fr Robert Barron’s homily (see link above), where he explains the thought behind the medieval wheel of fortune.  By the way, this picture is from the Hortus Deliciarum, the first encyclopedia written and illustrated by a woman, Herrad of Landsberg, 12th Century Abbess of Hohenburg Abbey (Mont Sainte-Odile).  Just another example of the great achievements of women in the Catholic Church!
