“We must also prepare ourselves to not fall into the trap of judging others, and harshly, in order to blind ourselves to the great failings of our own hardened hearts.

This pridefulness and scorn for others is the great falling away of our age. one of the great snares of the high minded ideologues, the leaven of the Pharisees.

Prepare yourself first, and make yourself acceptable, showing mercy and love to your brothers and sisters, and judging them not before you have washed your own self clean.

Then you may receive the three great gifts, of repentance, forgiveness, and thankfulness from God.

And from this will flow all your joy and happiness, peacefulness and contentment, now and forever.”

“What we would like to do is change the world–make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended them to do.  And, by fighting for better conditions, by crying out unceasingly for the rights of the workers, the poor, of the destitute–the rights of the worthy and the unworthy poor, in other words–we can, to a certain extent, change the world; we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. 

We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever widening circle will reach around the world.  There is nothing we can do but love, and, dear God, please enlarge our hearts to love each other, to love our neighbor, to love our enemy as our friend.”
