Third Sunday of Easter
Fr Ron's Reflection:
Do not depend on the hope of results.
We may have to face the fact that our work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what we expect.
As we get used to this idea, we start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself. We gradually struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people.
In the end, it is the reality of personal relationship that saves everything.”
Thomas Merton (1915-1968)
