Lump of Stone

If your virtue goes no deeper than that of the scribes and Pharisees … (Matthew 5).

But our virtue must go deeper – must it not?

We can’t stay in the same ‘place,’ we have to move and be moved:

In the heart there stirs the basic passion for existence and belonging, for to live humanly is to have a heart.

Turned in on ourselves, the heart becomes a lump of stone: hard, heavy, cold and dead (Father Anthony Kelly, The Sacred Heart Revisited).

Our time is very short.

Make each day a day of the heart.

Amen.
