It is said charity begins at home. If we deconstruct ‘charity’ we quickly find that it is more than giving money to a worthy cause. Charity is ultimate benevolence, rooted in compassion. It is pure good will, constructive rather than destructive. And if charity begins at home, then we must first offer charity to ourselves. Charity is at the heart of our humanity, both a universal adhesive and an emollient. If we perfect our charity on ourselves, it can not but help to spread into our daily practice of living. Let it be so. We are thankful for Charity. Blessed Be, and Amen,.
