The Opposite Effect Of An Atomic Bomb

Saint Francis says we should be joyful, good-humoured, and happy…

We ought to be. I am very challenged to live this kind of life at times, yet I know it is the best way to live. It’s the best way to dismantle the atomic bomb of hatred and anger and un-peace that seems to permeate our world these days. The challenge is to “have peace on our lips and also in our hearts” as much of the time as we can be mindful to do so, as Saint Francis would exhort us to do. This may not sound like power to the world, but it is the power that heals and gives new life.
