A Waste of Time

A Waste of Time

Prayer is the consciousness
of God’s loving presence.

The closer you come to God
the more compassion you will have
for your neighbor.

If the fruit of our contemplation
is not an increased love of others,
then our contemplation is faulty
and a waste of time.

Spirituality and social responsibility are interwoven.

Jesus understood that compassion
had to be far more than a feeling.
For Jesus, compassion
was never separated from action.
