|every night we lay down on stone, with the weight of the day, but we are never out of God's presence|
and that puts us in a community as God does not live alone.

This quote from Fr. Ron Rolheiser reflecting on the reality of our longing and our struggle.......
A non-negotiable part of meeting Jesus means being sent out, and not just alone on some private spiritual quest or individualized ministry. It means being called into community, into a church, and then sent out with others, “in pairs”, to, as Nikos Kazantzakis poetically puts it, “walk in Christ’s bloody footsteps”, that is, to walk inside of mess and failure, misunderstanding and crucifixion, confusion and tiredness, darkness and God’s seeming silence, wondering sometimes if you will indeed find a stone upon which to lay your head.
