An approach to Living the Life

From the testament of Charles de Foucauld:

"Jesus came to Nazareth, the place of the hidden life, of ordinary life, of family life, of prayer, work, obscurity, silent virtues, practiced with no witnesses other than God, his friends, and neighbors.

Nazareth, the place where most people lead their lives. We must infinitely respect the least of our brothers,...let us mingle with them. Let us be one of them to the extent that God wishes... and treat them fraternally in order to have the honor and joy of being accepted as one of them."

Thank you for posting this. The more I encounter the words and life of Foucauld, the more I am drawn to the spirituality he lived. Good stuff.
