a circle of compassion.

"Jesus said 'so that all may be one.'

We imagine a circle of compassion and then we imagine no one standing outside of that circle. God created an otherness so that we would dedicate our lives to a union with each other."

Father Greg Boyle, in an interview with Krista Tippet

...

"Our human family is dismembered—like a scattered puzzle. We must re-member. We must rise above our fear and come together. Even when we are afraid.

We all have fear. But fear does not have to be where we set up camp and live. We can allow fear to become but a flicker. We can feel it, and then rise above it again and again. There is a place above our fear we can keep returning to again and again and that place is love."
