October 31  Lk. 13:31-35

When St. Ignatius suggests that we look on the world as God does, we might have this image of Jesus in mind as he looked on Jerusalem–I think of this City–so much beauty, so much good on the one hand-=so much greed and darkness on the other–one walks from the beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge,to the darkness of the alleys of the Tenderloin–and God’s heart yearns for them. Jesus accepted the Cross not only in his crucifixion but in the many small choices that led him to Jerusalem–and so have I–I walk the way of the Cross, with my eyes open, ande I give thanks to God for bringing me on this path. As Buddha said:

First, live a compassionate life. Then you will know.” ~ Buddha
