Jesus did not say

March 20, 2012

Richard Rohr’s Daily Reflection from March 20, 2012.  It reminds me of the First Principle and Foundation and the FIrst WEek of the Exercises.  Jesus wants us now!  
Jesus did not say:
When you get healed, love;
When you grow up, love; when you feel loving, love;
When you get it together and have dealt with all your      mother/father/husband/children wounds,
then you are able to love.
No, the commandment for all of us is to LOVE now.
