Thoughts from “Padre”

I just came across the following small collection of the thoughts on a site called 150 Knots. They made me pause for reflection and in my view they are worth sharing

Everyone wants to end poverty, but no one wants to share.

It’s easy to say “All You Need is Love” when you’re sitting on an enormous pile of money.

Isn’t it amazing that the people warning us about the world having too many people are all alive?

We all say the poor are special in the eyes of God but we’re not sure that we want to be that special ourselves.

It’s simple to see pain as a pathway to sanctity if you’re not in pain.

Ever notice that the people who preach the prosperity gospel are usually the ones who get rich?

Here I am Lord, choose someone else.
