Then we see that these struggling fellow pilgrims with whom we share this
space are no longer robbers, pirates, and thieves,but deepest friends,
most intimate souls.
To see this Creation with the eyes of God means seeing with the eyes of
peace; it means finding ways to bind up the broken,even when the world
says it can't be done.
To scale these walls of alienation and despair means living our lives in
truth, with justice; neither denying the holy gifts of our hearts and
souls, nor hoarding them like miser's gold.
It is the simplest call of all, in essence: To open ourselves to
God,we first open ourselves to one another. Each day we live, in hope,
the deepest possibilities of our dreams and of our visions in this
life,we dwell as well in heaven.
Then it is that we will turn and greet one another,knowing at long last
the simple blessing of standing fully in the presence of another true
messiah,face-to-face with one like us: a beaming, holy child of God.
