Heard this story this week, the Irish tell the story of a man who arrives at the gates of heaven and he asks to be let in and St. Peter says, “Of course. Show us your scars.” The man said, “I have no scars.” St. Peter says, “What a pity. Was there nothing worth fighting for?”
These words struck me, and challenged me, and sent me on a renewed course. My scars are visible, my heart aches as it grows and expands in its loving movement. I know what is worth fighting for… Humanity. Peace. Joy. Love. Understanding. Justice. Healing. All of it is precious and important and complete and healed and whole. All of it is fueled by passion. Enjoy this month’s MELS LOVE LAND #MINIMAG | ISSUE 7 PASSION allow it to fall over you, and work through you and send you into the heart of your passions.
