Thoughts Scribbled Before Sunrise

The richer we are the harder it is for us to see the poor, and as a result we lessen our opportunity to experience an encounter with the crucified Christ.

We need to become friends of silence and friends of the poor.

The hungry can’t feed the hungry. In stillness of prayer, I am sufficiently nourished so I am able to go out and feed others.

God’s boundless love is the energy that animates all life. It is a dynamic force that generates authentic goodness and true beauty.

The righteous have no need for God or God’s mercy.

Pride is a roadblock to wisdom.

God begins where clinging to things ends.

Let go of the external to find the internal.

The spiritual path knows nothing of tomorrow. Each step is taken in the now, the present moment.

Work is most fulfilling when it materializes our love for others through tangible acts of service.

    A ‘roadmap’ for our journey — for living our life for and in Christ.
    Thank you, Mr. Straub.
