By Way of God's Love

I would like to share with you some words of wisdom I recently received from a dear friend of mine who happens to be a little old Benedictine priest. This precious monk is in his late eighties and walks bent over with age, yet despite his physical frailty whenever I see him his face seems to simply radiate the love of Christ.

"You can't be everything - except by way of God's love. And the world, and the Church, need us more than ever, by example first, even if quite hidden like me."
