In the end, it is all very simple.
Love God. Love neighbour. (In this way you will learn to focus on others more than on yourself.)
Care especially for the vulnerable and the abandoned. (In this way you will discover that these people are the agents of your salvation.)
Do good in secret, and be especially tender with those who refuse to do good to you. (In this way you will learn that good overcomes evil — both in yourself and in the world.)
Share. Give generously. Rejoice. (This is what love requires.)
Tremble. Mourn. Be silent. (This is also required by love.)
Smile when you cry, and cry when you smile. Dance when you hurt, and hurt when you dance. Laugh when you fail, and fail when you laugh. Hope.
Eat. Sleep. Live. Die.
Be made new.
