“Deepen our SCN spirituality through contemplation, mysticism and theological development.”

Soup Bowls

I have had to stop myself sometimes.

I have found myself rushing from one person to another

soup bowls and more soup bowls,

plates of bread and more plates of bread,

with the gratitude of the poor

like a loud din in my ears.

Then I realized that this is dangerous work.

To want to help people is a grave temptation.

Maybe we are just helping ourselves by helping others.

This is a long loneliness.
