Sr Claire Joy, over at Flavor of the Month, has a wonderful quote from Barbara Crafton+, which I just can't resist posting here:
It turns out there's no secret code, no hidden key. There's no need of one: eternal life isn't locked. Anybody can live as a lover of God and neighbor, just by walking out his front door and looking around at what needs to be done. And then doing the first thing that presents itself. And then another. And another. As many as you want — they're all your neighbors. And the Christ who lives in you also lives in each of them.
Beautiful! What are we so afraid of, that we try and set limits to grace, at least for other people?
