“Unfortunately, the notion of faith that emerged in the West was much more a rational assent to the truth of certain mental beliefs…. Predictably, we soon separated intellectual belief (which tends to differentiate and limit) from love and hope(which unite and thus eternalize).”
“No one religion will ever encompass the depth of such faith.
No ethnicity has a monopoly on such hope.
No nationality can control or limit this Flow of such universal love.”
~Richard Rohr, The Universal Christ (Convergent, 2021).
