“The culture of comfort, which makes us think only of ourselves, makes us insensitive to the cries of other people, makes us live in soap bubbles which, however lovely, are insubstantial; they offer a fleeting and empty illusion which results in indifference to others; indeed, it even leads to the globalization of indifference. We have become used to the suffering of others.

— Pope Francis

“In practice, we should repent rather than have remorse. To repent is not to feel remorse, but to feel one’s faults, realizing they are faults, and try one’s best not to make the same mistake again.”

– From “How To Be Faultless” by Master Sheng Yen. Tricycle Magazine, Winter 2016
