BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 by Fr. Anthony De Mello, in THE WAY TO LOVE

“We think the world would be saved if only we could generate larger quantities of goodwill and tolerance. That’s false. What will save the world is not goodwill and tolerance but clear thinking. Of what use is it to be tolerant of others if you are convinced that you are right and everyone who disagrees with you is wrong? That isn’t tolerance but condescension. That leads not to union of hearts but to division, because you are one up and the others one down. True tolerance only arises from a keen awareness of the abysmal ignorance of everyone as far as truth is concerned, for truth is essentially mystery.”

                   Fr. Anthony DeMello, in “The Way to Love”
