Love is not consolation. It is light.

Simone Weil


A mystic challenged me years ago.  The challenge was regarding my way of responding to others and all of life.  Her challenge was simple and elegant. Her challenge was as follows. Before you speak or do anything ask yourself, what is the most loving response you can offer? My life changed.

Since her challenge, even though I’ve failed often, my compassion has grown. Love is work.

Walk in beauty. Respond in love.

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

John 13:34-35
