Excerpt of a letter from our Minister General.
"I read recently a powerful story in a book by Cardinal Sarah, “God or nothing”. He writes of a teacher filling a bucket to the brim with large rocks and asks his students if the bucket is full. They reply, “yes”. Then he adds pebbles to the bucket and they fill in the spaces. Again he asks the question, “Is it full?” and the response is, “yes”. Then he adds sand and that goes in and then water. Each time the response is “yes”. Then he asks, “Could I do it the other way around, beginning with the water, then the sand and so on?” Of course not, that is impossible. So Cardinal Sarah continues that that is how our life is. If we fill it with trivial and unimportant things first, then there is no room or place for God. Yet if we place God as our first priority and fill our life with Him, then all else will follow and fit in."
