Thanks, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse!

A Revolution of Tenderness

"Yes, tenderness is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women. Tenderness is not weakness; it is fortitude. It is the path of solidarity, the path of humility. Please, allow me to say it loud and clear: the more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the other." - Pope Francis
 
The 18 minutes you invest watching this video, slowly, reflectively, even prayerfully, will be time well spent, my friends.
And thank you, Pope Francis. You exemplify in these words, delivered in this spirit, what a Christian and a human being should be.
 
We need a revolution of tenderness.

We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stage of instability—and that it might take a very long time.

His words do not excuse apathy, but they warn us against unrealistic expectations and the real danger of careless haste.

A Powerful Easter Message – that is good for every (Sun)day.

Christian faith is an outdoors religion. My friend Michael-Ray Mathews explains why in this powerful article.

Quotable:

We are looking for action inside the walls of the church. And again God's messenger greets us, reminding us that "he is not here." He is "going ahead" of us into the world where bombs decimate communities, where guns take lives, and where policies sentence our young to slow deaths.
