Jesus says, "You are the light of the world." I like even more what Jesus doesn't say. He does not say, "One day, if you are more perfect and try really hard, you'll be light." He doesn't say, "If you play by the rules, cross your T's and dot your I's, then maybe you'll become light." No. He says, straight out, "You are light." It is the truth of who you are, waiting only for you to discover it. So, for God's sake, don't move. No need to contort yourself to be anything other than who you are.

- Father Gregory Boyle, 'Tattoos On The Heart'

  2. Haha! Laughing not because it was funny, but because it is so PROFOUND! I love to hear snippets apart from the book, because it makes them stand out even more, if that were possible. What a man of!
