“The funeral rites of the plant kingdom are exquisitely choreographed because they are not celebrating the end of life, but the seamlessness of life. The neighbor oak is not dead; he is reclining at the eternal banquet of the Cosmic Eucharist. Sometimes we are the guests. Sometimes we are the hosts. And sometimes we are the food. ”  

– Fr. Sean O’Laoire
