Belief

The Master had quoted Aristotle: "In the quest of truth, it would seem better and indeed necessary to give up what is dearest to us." And he substituted the word "God" for "truth." Later a disciple said to him, "I am ready, in the quest for God, to give up anything: wealth, friends, family, country, life itself. What else can a person give up?"
The Master calmly replied, "One's beliefs about God."
The disciple went away sad, for he clung to his convictions. He feared "ignorance" more than death.

Anthony de melloAnthony de Mello

Until his sudden death on June 2, 1987, Fr. Tony de Mello was the director
