A heart of compassion has no need for eyes with which to judge. Mercy no need for a stick with which to beat. Love no need for a book of laws to recite. The eyes with the stick in one hand and the book in the other need to fade. The mercy and love of the heart must pervade. If your eye causes you to be tempted with undue judgment, look away! If the words of your book make you hate, turn the page! It is said only God can make blind eyes see. Indeed, only God enlightens the soul to perceive. Blind us. Go on, take our sight so we can see. May the blinding love of God set us all free.
