Three gems from "The Shattered Lantern" by Ronald Rolheiser

1) "...touching the poor is the cure for a mediocre or dying faith."

2)  "...strength without compassion is violence;
compassion without justice is weakness;
justice without love is Marxism;
and love without justice is baloney!"

3) "Concrete contact with the poor is Christian contemplation. It knocks the scales off one's eyes."
