A Reflection: What the World Needs Now

October 12, 2021

When we all reach that perfection of love which is the contemplation of God in His glory, our inalienable personalities, while remaining eternally distinct, will nevertheless combine into One so that each one of us will find himself in all the others, and God will be the life and reality of all. “Omnia in omnibus Deus” (So that God may be all in all—1 Corinthians 15:28 in Latin). (Thomas Merton in New Seeds of Contemplation, p. 72)

In the vernacular of my parent’s time… what the world needs now is love sweet love — Dionne Warwick — What the World Needs Now (1966)

And in the vernacular of my generation — John Lennon – Imagine

May we all seek to be the love which we are called to be… especially to love our enemies…
