St. Therese asked the question, How do I react when in my mind’s eye, I see the defects of someone who doesn’t attract me?
Usually, what I see in another is the very same thing that resides within.
How do we overcome such prejudice?
“O everlasting Light, surpassing all created luminaries, ‘cast forth thy lightning’, piercing all the most inward parts of my heart. Make clean, make glad, make birth and make alive my Spirit.” (Kempis)
“Spiritual truths take many years to learn”, sometimes they can come like a flash of lightning.
