Quotes worth pondering ... "We have hardly thought through the immense implications of the mystery of the Incarnation. ... Our faithfulness will depend on our willingness to go where there is brokenness, loneliness, and human need. If the church has a future it is a future with the poor in whatever form." (Henri Nouwen, Sabbatical Journey)
"One way I come to love God is to love what God loves." (Eric Rogers, physicist)
"To be evangelized means to be awakened to Christ in a way that changes me, in a way that will not let me go back to sleep." (Mary Sharon Moore, in her retreat "What I am Learning," given to conferences of St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County, June 11, 2016)
"The fundamental change ... consists of an awakening, but from another type of sleep ... the sleep of inhumanity." (Theologian Jon Sobrino, The Principle of Mercy)
"We need to strengthen the conviction that we are one single human family. There are no frontiers or barriers, political or social, behind which we can hide, still less is there room for the globalization of indifference." (Pope Francis, Laudato Si', 52)
"There is no way to peace, peace itself being the way." (A. J. Muste, peacemaker, 1885-1967)
"You either walk toward love or away from it with every breath you draw." (Brian Doyle, "The Final Frontier")
"The ones who have inspired me are the ones who have done more with less, and have gone farther, with more in their way." (Singer songwriter John Gorka)
"To live for Jesus, I discover, is to live for those most hidden within his poverty, who will be hidden where I am hidden, too, when I embrace the One who is poor." (Mary Sharon Moore, Conformed to Christ)
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." (Dwight D. Eisenhower)
"Prayer and comfortable living are incompatible." (St. Teresa of Avila, Way of Perfection 4:2)
"My solitude is not my own, for I see now how much it belongs to [others]--and that I have a responsibility for it in their regard, not just in my own. It is because I am one with them that I owe it to them to be alone, and when I am alone they are not 'they' but my own self. There are no strangers!" (Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, 1966)
