Can such a simple (though not necessarily easy) accomplishment as subordinating our ego, lead us to world peace? Is compassion different for Muslims than for Christians or are we all really “Partners” searching for the same reality? What does the Qur’an have to say about compassion? These are just a few of the questions Feisal Abdul Rauf , spiritually answers in today’s TED Talk. Feisal retells a story from the Sufi (Inner mystical tradition of Islam) master, Runi, that I will never forget. It simply and magically tells the answer to realizing Peace on Earth.
We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.
