Moving the World

“Love without courage and wisdom is sentimentality, as with the ordinary church member. Courage without love and wisdom is foolhardiness, as with the ordinary soldier. Wisdom without love and courage is cowardice, as with the ordinary intellectual. But the one who has love, courage and wisdom moves the world.”

– Ammon Hennacy, Catholic Activist (1893 – 1970)

What an amazing quote. These are the qualities I long to aspire to, in order to touch the lives of those around me and transform the world for the revolutionary known as Jesus Christ. What people often don’t tell you is that these qualities usually only come through pain and perseverance. As I am currently engaged in one of those struggles at the moment, I pray that God would be by my side to guide me, comfort me and give me hope, so that I too can grow this kind of character.
