be human

You are not big enough to accuse the whole age effectively, but let us say you are in dissent. You are in no position to issue commands, but you can speak words of hope. Shall this be the substance of your message? Be human in this most inhuman of ages; guard the image of man for it is the image of God. --Thomas Merton

Saw this quote on Richard Beck. Absolutely, totally love it.

It gave me exact and complete words for a deep and inarticulate sense within me, and provided a beautiful and deeply Jesus way forward.

So grateful...
