True Freedom, by Henri Nouwen

"True freedom is the freedom of the children of God. To reach that freedom requires a lifelong discipline since so much in our world militates against it.

"But the spiritual truth that leads to freedom is the truth that we belong not to the world but to God, whose beloved children we are. By living lives in which we keep returning to that truth in word and deed, we will gradually grow into our true freedom."
