The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. — Ferdinand Foch.
One may not be able to detect when a human soul is on fire from appearances. You’ve heard the expression about “underneath a calm exterior burns a passionate heart.” But at some point you realize that the person is passionate and his/her soul is on fire. Great leaders like Gandhi, MLK, JFK souls were on fire. I’ve had the honor to meet a few souls on fire and whiten experience.
Lent was a time to ignite our own flame, but if the spark didn’t take don’t lose heart. We all have the ability to develop a passion for something good and worthy. Never give up hope even if you are as old as I am. In each of us is a soul ready to be ignited and burn brightly.
