Papa writes:

“Fifty years after the Second Vatican Council, we are distressed by the troubles of our age and far from naive optimism; yet the fact that we are more realistic must not mean that we are any less trusting in the Spirit or less generous…

“…mystical fraternity, a contemplative fraternity. It is a fraternal love capable of seeing the sacred grandeur of our neighbor, of finding God in every human being, of tolerating the nuisances of life in common by clinging to the love of God, of opening the heart to divine love and seeking the happiness of others just as their heavenly Father does.”

  1. Amen, Father Mark! We pray for you and all consecrated souls. A special prayer for Holy Father Francis.

  2. Father Mark,

    Daddy wants what? For us to extend ourselves outside our shell of protection against being found guilty, and labeled a Fool for God?

    Not likely! Not if you’re sane: but, if you’re not, maybe, just maybe, it might fly.

    In God we trust.

    LIH,

    joe
