“The Center of Our Lives”

Jn. 17:11-19:   “I do not ask you to take them out of the world, but I do ask you to keep them safe from the Evil One.”

“Tell me Holy one,” the disciple said, “Should I sell my business and go into a monastery?”  And the Holy One answered, “No, keep your business into your heart.”  The point is that God must be the center of our lives wherever we are.  That is far more difficult then going into a monastery.   For me the work I do is keeping God central in my life–it is not about comfort for me, it is about God, and it is joy for me to spend time with these guys. Tonight on Haight one after another thanked me, we talked, and for me that was more joy then all the money in the world.  I am tired, had  a car accident today, went to a Pride meeting tonight, and yet I feel joy. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
