Thought for the Week

In Gaudete et Exsultate we read the following exhortation:

It is not good when we look down on others like heartless judges, lording it over them and always trying to teach them lessons. That is in itself a subtle form of violence.

St John of the Cross proposed a different path: “Always prefer to be taught by all, rather than to desire teaching even the least of all. “

May we take this invitation to heart in the coming week!
