The Sacred

There are not sacred and profane
things, places, and moments.
There are only sacred and desecrated
things, places, and moments—
and it is we alone who desecrate them
by our blindness and lack of reverence.
It is one sacred universe,
and we are all a part of it.

–Richard Rohr

  1. “And we are all part of it.” Beautiful. I discovered Richard Rohr when I read Falling Upward. He helps me understand my journey into “the second half” of life. Thanks for this post.
