    We are called to share, not force change

    We are living in a time of 'endings'. Structures are falling, perhaps even some structures in the Catholic Church. I believe we must speak the truth without worrying about convincing. When we do not do that it leads to arguments, which is not really communication. We all plant seeds, and we receive seeds that if we allowed them to grow could be harmful, others leading to new life.

    When we speak truth calmly, understanding that we are not called to change anyone, but to speak the truth as our faith teaches us, and let it go, we may be surprised at the future harvest.

    We connect with others through prayer, on that level we are one with Christ Jesus, it is there that we need to lay those we love before the Lord. As well as those who try us.--Br.MD
