Be in Love

~by Fr. Richard Rohr~

“The central practice in Franciscan mysticism is that we must remain in love.  Only when we are eager to love can we see love and  goodness in the world around us.  We must ourselves remain in peace, and then we will find peace over there. Remain in beauty and we will honor beauty everywhere.  this concept of remaining or abiding moves all religion everywhere out of esoteric realms of doctrinal outer space where it has been lost for too long.  there is no secret moral command for knowing or pleasing God, or what some call “salvation,” beyond becoming a loving person in mind, heart, body and soul. Then you will see what you need to see. Jesus did not say, “Be right.” Jesus said, “Be in love.” — Fr. Richard Rohr
