MEMORIAL OF FATHER SAINT ANDREW DUNG-LAC AND COMPANIONS, MARTYRS OF VIETNAM, NINETEENTH CENTURY
-From Cynthia Bourgeault, a faculty member of the Center for Action and Contemplation, founded by Father Richerd Rohr, OFM
How do we put on the mind of Christ? How do we see through his eyes? How do we feel through this heart? How do we learn to respond to the world with the same wholeness and healing love? That’s what Christian orthodoxy is all about. It’s not about right belief; it’s about right practice…The Kingdom of Heaven [God] is really a metaphor for a state of consciousness; it is not a place you go to, but a place you come from. It is a whole new way of looking at the world, a transformed awareness that literally turns this world into a different place…The hallmark of this awareness is that it sees no separation – not between God and humans, not between humans and other humans.
