The novelist Graham Greene waited several years for a meeting with the wondrous Padre Pio.

When the time came, though, Greene walked out of the monastery without meeting him and said, "I don’t want to change my life by meeting a saint."

In my experience, when you meet someone whose life is aligned with the Divine, it changes you. The visit this week by the Pope seems to be working some magic. I hope all remember his wonderful advice: "We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace."

Preaching peace is a sermon I can get behind! Namaste.
