Weekly Pause & Ponder

“It is the energy of love that drives the world; it is God’s love as the heart of all reality that courses through our veins and the smallest subatomic particle of creation. To seek and find God is the heart of the mystic journey; in our own day it is a call that can never be separated from political love and the quest for a just and peaceful world. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a mystic in love with created reality, spoke often of love as the driving force in all of creation, as it moves toward the Omega Point–Christ–when God will be all in all. Every act of love moves all of us closer to that point of union; every act of selfishness and injustice is a step backward.” 
Great Mystics and Social Justice by Susan Rakoczy p.206
