Many people have a multi-faith identity:
People are called in many different ways
but if you refuse God’s call
you turn the adventure/your true life
into meaningless boredom/a wasteland/
Our only true greatness lies in
the humility of living faithfully.
The purer our faith, the closer we come to God.
The one who desires to exalt herself/himself
with extraordinary sexual or mystical experiences
becomes less/not more in the eyes of God.
If you can abandon all desire
for the fruits of your actions/results
you can perform freely/without attachment
your duty – to love.
One’s duty may be to be a good spouse –
the intimate partnership of married life and love
has been established by the Creator
and is defined/qualified/bounded
by the Creator’s laws/thou-shalt-nots –
THOU SHALT NOT: lie/steal/covet thy neighbour’s
Like Ravi Zacharias, Jean Vanier was a super-saint –
his work with the developmentally delayed
in L’Arche/the Ark became world-wide
group homes for those rejected by society
and his book Becoming Human
helped us discover our common humanity
the journey from loneliness to belonging
and to a love that includes all –
people of multiple faiths and no faith
people able/differently abled/disabled –
Vanier was a saint until the MeTooMovement
caught him with his pants down
with multiple women. Another spiritual superstar
had fallen – to everyone’s utter dismay.
