Looking at this heart it occurs to me that there is no black or white in a rainbow, only a spectrum of colours, nuanced and blending easily into each other. No extremes, only the beautiful harmonious blend which lies in between, complementing and enhancing their neighbours - here all held and embraced within the Open Heart.
Could we dare hope, pray and work for a world like this? What can we do to bring this about? A few hours ago I also saw these words on Facebook, attributed to Pope Francis. I don't know whether he said them today or after an earlier horror, but they are certainly a call and a reminder of the most powerful way to combat hatred and division, and transform grief into the most potent and compelling response.
Our infinite sadness can only be cured by infinite love.
