Friday in Second Week of Lent

During Lent we start a process of ending war. For to put an end to outward war we must first put a stop to war within ourselves. If after Lent we go back to doing what we have done during the last ten or twenty years then our sacrifice has little significance. For the world’s miseries and wars are not going to be stopped by casual assent. They will be stopped when each of us recognize our responsibility, and we don’t leave it to someone else. If we recognize the suffering, see the urgency of action, and do not postpone, we will transform ourselves. Peace comes when we are peaceful, and when we are at peace with our neighbor.

  1. Dear Webb,

    I love this entry… it calls to mind Ghandi’s famous “Be the change you want in the world.”
