The best prayer is to rest in the goodness of God, knowing that that goodness can reach down to our lowest depths of need.
I am a shepherd who, with his people, has begun to learn a beautiful and difficult truth: our Christian faith requires that we submerge ourselves in this world. The world that the church must serve is the world of the poor, and the poor are the ones who decide what it means for the church to really live in the world.
It is the duty of Christians to create the kingdom of God on Earth. This kingdom will exist only when we all have enough to eat, when our children, brothers, parents don’t have to die from hunger and malnutrition. That will be the “Glory,” a Kingdom for we who have never known it.
If we wish to quench our thirst, we must lay aside books which explain thirst and take a drink.
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.
