Silence Doesn't Bring Peace
Fr. Anthony de Mello once told this very short, humorous, and very pointed story...
A tourist to a town hired a guide to show him the sights. At one point during the tour, the tourist said to the guide:
"You have a right to be proud of your town. I was especially impressed with the number of churches in it. Surely people here must love the Lord."To which the guide replied: "Well, they may love the Lord, but they sure as hell hate each other."
Our only enemy is that which wouldMake us enemies to each other.
