August August

by Christos Polydorou

Yesterday I wandered into a Catholic church and there was a service and some people were reading from the Bible. I sat for a while and listened and what I got out of that experience is that it will be impossible not just for myself but for anyone to proceed in life in any meaningful way unless we let go of the hate we have in our heart for anyone who has ever harmed us. This is very hard, but if I wish to live my life fully and joyfully, I have to make sacrifices, like all of us. I left the church filled with the presence of the Holy Mother, the one I feel closest to me, at all times, through a devotion of birds, and with more strength, and courage, to do this very difficult thing, to let go of the hate, in my heart.
