Greed and Selfishness

Who is Saint Gregory?

Saint Gregory

It is by no means enough not to steal the property of others; you are in error if you keep to yourself the wealth which God has created for all. He who does not give to others what he possesses is a murderer, a killer; when he keeps for his own use what would provide for the poor, one can say that he is slaying all those who could have lived from his plenty; when we share with those who are suffering, we do not give what belongs to us, but what belongs to them. This is not an act of pity, but the payment of a debt. — Pope Gregory the Great (6th Century)

Make Me a Channel of Your Peace

st-francis

Often attributed to the 13th-century saint Francis of Assisi, the prayer in its present form cannot be traced back further than 1912, when it was printed in Paris in French, in a small spiritual magazine called La Clochette (The Little Bell), published by La Ligue de la Sainte-Messe (The League of the Holy Mass). The author’s name was not given, although it may have been the founder of La Ligue, Fr. Esther Bouquerel.

Meaningful Conversations

Conversation

“TURNING TO ONE ANOTHER”

by Margaret Wheatley

There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about. Ask: “What’s possible?” not “What’s wrong?” Keep asking.

Notice what you care about. Assume that many others share your dreams.

Be brave enough to start a conversation that matters. Talk to people you know. Talk to people you don’t know. Talk to people you never talk to.

Be intrigued by the differences you hear. Expect to be surprised. Treasure curiosity more than certainty.

Invite in everybody who cares to work on what’s possible. Acknowledge that everyone is an expert about something. Know that creative solutions come from new connections.

Remember, you don’t fear people whose story you know. Real listening always brings people closer together.

Trust that meaningful conversations can change your world.

Rely on human goodness. Stay together.

Everything You Ever Need is Already Inside You

0043

Who you really are is far beyond your comprehension. That’s why living squeezed into the human experience can be painful at times.

It is for me, too.

You can become as small as the smallest quantum particle, and as big as the multitude of galaxies that exist in space.

I was always like that, really. I just didn’t know it.

And so it is everyone else.

Even you.

And you have your own eternal music.

That’s cool! 🙂
