An Honest Spiritual Life

51h-ww1CxNL

“…what is an honest spiritual life?  Perhaps we should say that it is one in which the taste for truth (rather than sincerity) has become inescapable.  We don’t know what we shall be, what face God will show to us in the mirror he holds up for us on the last day, but we can continue to question our own (and other people’s) strange preference for the heavy burden of self-justification, or self-creation, and weep for our reluctance to become persons and to be transfigured by the personal communion opened for us by Jesus.”
