Catholics on Cactus
From America, The National Catholic Weekly we find out all about how cactus store water.
In flush times, the cactus drinks up a storm, its pleated exterior expanding like an accordion to accommodate heavy rainfall. In drought, it conserves moisture by growing slowly and transpiring little.
An interesting observation. I wonder why this particular catholic magazine made this observation? Well, there’s probably a spiritual reason behind it. Something along the lines of how we can all learn a lesson from the cactus.
The saguaro has evolved to embrace the rhythms of feasting and fasting that must govern any life lived in harmony with the cycles of the natural world.
Well, there you go.
