Seven times I have despised my soul

The first time when I saw her being meek that she may attain height

The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.

The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy and chose the easy.

The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.

The fifth when she forbore for weakness and attributed her patience to strength.

The sixth when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks

The seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.

Khalil Gibran

A pearl is a temple built by pain around a grain of sand

What longing built our bodies and around what grains?

Khalil Gibran on Jesus




There are three miracles of our Brother Jesus not yet recorded in the book: the first that He was a man like you and me; the second that He had a sense of humour; and the third that He knew He was a conqueror though conquered.



Crucified One, you are crucified upon my heart; and the nails that pierce your hands pierce the walls of my heart. And tomorrow when a stranger passes this Golgotha He will know that two bled here. He will deem it the blood of one man.



You may have heard of the Blessed Mountain. It is the highest mountain in our world. Should you reach the summit you would have only one desire, and that to descend and be with those who dwell in the deepest valley. That is why it is called the Blessed Mountain.




Long ago lived a man who was crucified for being too loving and too lovable. And strange to relate I met Him thrice yesterday. The first time He was asking a policeman not to take a prostitute to prison; the second time He was drinking wine with an outcast; and the third time He was having a fist fight with a promoter inside a church.
