“It’s what we take into ourselves that we then communicate to others in some form or other. Maybe that’s what we see in the faces of the holy ones. What glows so brightly in them is the serenity and kindness they have nourished within themselves all their lives." - Sister Joan Chittister
I read this quote on one of my favorite blogs this month and saved it immediately so that I could record a podcast episode about it. I think this is such a beautiful way to describe aligning our words with our work. What if we all could be holy ones, if we nourish ourselves with serenity and kindness -- so that THAT is what we communicate with others?
