By Fr Jim Cogley

Don’t live for wealth and material things that will one day turn to dust, but for the living God who loves all people, including your enemies. No matter how rich you may be in this life with material possessions you will still die a a pauper. Your only true treasure lies within.

Don’t hate your enemies or competitors, but love them and do to them not as they have done to you - and not before they do to you - but as you wish they would do for you. . . .

Learn to be non-judgmental because your judgments of others will only rebound on yourself. You can judge behaviour but never persons because only the one who knows the whole story can afford to be merciful.
