Father Joe Small S. J.

He's walking with me, at my elbow at every turn this week. I still miss him, miss his high-grade pure self that is the simplest, the most common of denominators, absent from anything disingenuous or toxic. Just in case you don't have time to link back to what he's telling me these days, again, the essence of Joe was and is this:

"THIS IS THE TRUTH: you will never be free until you love, or try to love, every person you meet; and try to forgive every person that hurt you. Until that happens, you will never be free."

Be good to each other and be good to you. Get free.

The 'Kan EWA
