Speaking of love and suffering

May 11, 2012 — Leave a comment

Yesterday I came across this wonderful quote that expresses a major theme in Walk with Me:

As long as we are on earth, the love that unites us will bring us suffering by our very contact with one another, because this love is the resetting of a body of broken bones.

Even saints cannot live with saints on this earth without some anguish.

–Thomas Merton
