Hello my dear reader.
Thomas Merton once said that fanaticism is never really spiritual because it is not free. It is not free because it is not enlightened. It cannot judge between good and evil, truth and falsity, because it is blinded by prejudice. Prejudice rests on the pseudo-authority of hatred instead of the authority of love.
In September 11, 2001 many people died due to hatred and prejudice. Yet on that same day many people were saved because others were willing to put their lives on the line to rescue them, to heal them, and to save them.
To those who rested on the authority of love that day, thank you.
