On Neighbors

1308_Dorotheus_of_Gaza_Dyonisiou Fr. Thomas Moore, sharing the thoughts of St. Dorotheus:

Do not ask for love from your neighbor,  for if you ask and he does not respond, you will be troubled. Instead show your love for your neighbor and you will be at rest, and so will bring your neighbor to love.

Taking the time to copy these quotes  reminds me  of my shortcomings and moves me in the right direction.

If others also reflect on the points and make efforts to change, all the better.

All we can do is keep trying.
