⛪️ Psalm 123:4-5

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy, for we have had more than enough of contempt, too much of the scorn of the indolent rich, and of the derision of the proud.

I was offically installed as a verger today. Vergers take care of liturgical details so clergy can focus on their priestly duties. Vergers lead the procession and we carry a verge traditionally used to dissuade animals or unruly people from disrupting the proceedings. 📷 ⛪️

“Calmness does not mean to be in a place where there is no chaos, trouble, or hard realities to deal with. Calmness means to be in the midst of all those things and still remain mentally, emotionally, and physically centered.”

“A good life does not mean just good food, good clothes, good shelter. These are not sufficient. A good motivation is what is needed – compassion, without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy – just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their rights and human dignity.”
