When it was the turn of the rain, the snow and the wind, the supply of colours seemed to have been completely used up. The snow remained colourless. That is why the woods and the fields stayed covered under a thick layer of transparent snow in the springtime. The animals were very hungry, because although the seeds were visible beneath the colourless snow, they could not reach them.

Because of harsh conditions God felt sorry for the plants and the animals and told the snow that it could ask a plant for a colour. The plants refused to cooperate. The yellow catkins of the hazel did not want to part with its pale yellow and the sea buckthorn refused to give up the orange of its berries. The snow refused the red colour in the berries of the guelder rose, because it considered it to be too bright. The snow then became very angry. The wind, which had also not been given colour, joined forces with the snow. Heavy snowstorms lashed the land.

One small flower saw this all going on and felt sorry for the snow. When the colourless snow was resting from the last snowstorm, the little flower called out to the snow that it could have her white colour. The snow thought the white colour was splendid and was so touched by the flower’s offer, that he decided to allow the snowdrop to be the only plant which could blossom in the snow. The flower was so pleased about this, that from then on it called itself the ‘snowdrop’. People have a soft spot for this little plant, because when the snowdrops flower in January and February people know that Spring is on the way.

Christian Unity

Jesus, you remind us that the Spirit blows where he wants.

He is present in the hearts and gestures

of all those who make poverty go away,

the evil of our land, the injustice that kills.

Whatever their convictions

or their religious affiliation,

they bring life where death was sown.

They are for us.


You also see, Jesus, your Spirit at work

in all these people whose hearts are luminous

with compassionate eyes and outstretched hands.

They build the Kingdom

and make salvation spread over the whole universe.

They are fulfilling the wish of Moses:

To make all the Lord's people a people of prophets.

They are for us.


Jesus, deliver us from the fear of the other

who believe in you differently.

Teach us to feel our shortcomings

as a call to community together,

to work together to build a us

where each one can be recognized

in his or her own way to follow you and live like you.

Marthe Lamothe
