My teacher Richard Rohr says, “We must believe in such a way that we give hope and meaning to the next generation.” That makes it all the more important that we live fully, with our eyes and our hearts open, because the way we live now—each of us—has an impact not only on those around us, but on those who will come after us.
And finally, all we have to give away is our own journey, our own story.
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evening, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.” Father Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
I hope you have days that feel this vivid, this alive—for your own sake, and for the sake of the world.
With blessings and love, Kathi
