misunderstood Martha… August 3, 2010

Ignorance on my part prevented me from seeing that one is not superior to the other. Just as there is a balance in religious communities between active and a contemplative charism, so must we seek that same balance in our spiritual lives. I have so much to learn.

Helping with that learning are posts like this.
