Our first and most important spiritual task is to claim God’s unconditional love for ourselves. To remember who we truly are in the memory of God. Whether we feel it or not, whether we comprehend it or not, we can have spiritual knowledge in the heart— a deep assurance that passes understanding— that we are God’s beloved.

Henri Nouwen

It’s the ripe, plump tomatoes which blanket the farmer’s markets and neighbors gardens that make this simplest tomato salad so delectable.  No need to fancy it up – the salt really brings out the savory sweet juicy flavors of the tomatoes.   It’s a family favorite during the summer.


  • 5-6 ripe in season tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and serve.  Dinner can be that simple…
