228 – Worthiness – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

Of all the writers I have read and reread, Thomas Merton ranks for me as one of the most important, influential, and challenging.   Today is marked on many calendars as a day to remember Merton and consider what he can offer us today.

I invite you to make time today to give attention and consideration to these words of his,

Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.

{ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est}
